Wow. I think I’ve set a record for the longest time between wearing an outfit and posting it. This was Friday’s outfit, and I was busy/lazy all weekend (including today, which was a snow day) and never got around to uploading. But here it is.
Lots of odds and ends to upload…
-2 crappy nighttime pictures – the first is me looking like an escaped mental patient in a kamikaze headband and my leather jacket (which I wore on Friday along with the dress.) If anyone can read what the headband says, let me know. I’d like to know before I wear it and inadvertently send a horribly offensive or politically incorrect message. :/
And the other picture is an outline of what the zipper details on my semi dress will look like, modeled on the most ghetto mannequin ever (aka Elizabeth II.) What you do is, you wear a long t-shirt and have someone wrap you in paper tape (like a body cast), wait till it dries, then cut it off, tape it back together, and you have a dress form exactly your size.
-I’ve realized that these sheer tights shred like nobody’s business. It’s so infuriating.
-My brother started making stencils, which is giving me lots of ideas for spray-painted t-shirts. Maybe a future DIY project?
-I went to Target and tried really hard not to buy anything. The new “Go International” collection is actually pretty nice, with lots of higher-end “fashion” details – ie. draping, pleating, cutouts, nice fabrics(silk!), cool prints, exposed zippers, etc. I’m going to wait until it all goes on sale because $30 is still too much for me to pay for a nice dress.
I also almost bought a pair of heart-shaped sunglasses, but remembered my shopping ban at the last minute…and bought some red lipstick instead (“Fire and Ice” by Revlon. I choose products based on random things like how good the ads are or the fact that they’ve been selling the same product since the 50’s.)
-I’ve realized that waiting until now to figure out what I’m doing this summer is not the best plan. A lot of the programs I wanted are full and I’m still not sure what I want to do. Anyone out there want to give me an internship? :P
