My Future Has Been Determined

10 May

Well, my future is pretty much etched in stone. One day I will become That Crazy Cat Lady That Dyes Her Hair Pink and Feeds Her Hundreds of Cats in the Dead of Night While Staring at Passerbys. I’m already That Crazy Girl Who Sits On My Front Lawn Petting My Cat For 30 Minutes, so this isn’t so far off… I’m guessing I’ll hit this point at around 20.

Things to do During the Weekend

9 May

1.  Reminisce with friend about our last years of elementary school – 5th and 6th grade. SIGH. Those days were so free, and cathartic. It’s strange to think how I’ve changed so much in the past few years… admittedly, I am still weird and people STILL ASK IF I’M INSANE NO I’M NOT, but I no longer run up to random people and scream “REESSSEEEEEES!!!!” in their face. And I don’t throw worms at weenie pompous morons anymore. AND I certainly do not address a certain John as “Johnny Jumping Bean” anymore or dance the Ring-Around-the-Rosey at school dances (OK lies, I still do that. On the small chance that I actually GO to the dance) or tell mean people that their hair looks like a hurricane went through it (She deserved it.) I miss elementary – I miss having people refer to my friend and I as “X and Y” instead of just “X” or “Y”. Though the other day someone did say that I reminded them of one of my more… terrifying friends, which made me quite proud. >:D

2.  Watch ninja assassin movies. Kick Ass was bleh, the only good thing in that movie was HIT GIRL (*FANDOMIZE*) and Red Mist’s ludicrously cool hair. Number 9 was kind of a disappointment, but the amazing visuals/Seven (LIKE HIT GIRL WITHOUT GUNS)/post-apocalyptic world made up for it. I almost cried at the end, which is strange because I usually am quite cold-hearted and don’t cry. Hmmm. Leon was FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC – I want to dress and act like Mathilda – she is the epitome of kewlerz. Her constant requests to be his lover remind me of my childhood days – trying to be more mature and grown-up than I was/ever will be. Ahhhhh… those were the good ol’ days.

3. DRESS UP IN A KIMONO SNAZZLE I FOUND IN THE THRIFT STORE!

A round of applause for bad photo-editing skillz please?

My mom was so mad when I bought this.

Today was not kimono-and-tshirt weather. I have serious issues with the weather – one day its 80 (with thunderstorms and hail), the next day its 40 and windy. WEATHER, WHY CAN’T YOU JUST BE 60 WITH PARTIALLY CLOUDY SKYS AND A 5 MPH BREEZE, HUH?! Its not that  I mind windy days, but I’m tired of walking up the street fearing that I’ll go Splat! any minute. Also: leaves in eyes. Quite painful.

Its really hard to write something that doesn’t sound like a 7-year-old’s ramblings when one is listening to Lady Gaga O_O

Outfit Post

19 Apr

 

Old Catholic school days! Not that our unifroms looked this… weird, but my friend and I always made to sure to sit as obnoxiously as we possibly could. We didn’t sit like this, but we always propped our chairs up by the two back legs, thus blocking the way so everyone had to walk around, or give us the secret password.

Which didn’t exist. Haha

My skirt is silk, and its so wonderfully soft. I was constantly petting it (haha, weird)

Delightfully soft

Yay DIY! Inspired by Ann-Sofie Back’s Fall 2009.

5 Apr

My camera was refusing to co-operate, and my stand was M.I.A.

So I tried some crappy webcam pictures 😀

When I say crappy, I mean CRAPPY

Brighter!

My lovely new shoes which I purchased at a thrift store. Thrift stores = treasure trove.

A lovely umbrella that is probably older than our house.

Or not :/

I have problems pronouncing words like “boutique” today

Flora is a such a loser, yes? 😉

G-Star

When I first laid eyes on the G-Star collection I thought “Yellow! Blue! Bright! Like!”. Obviously my tastes in fashion are very deep, and well thought out. However, the blue and yellow reminded me of Coraline’s yellow jacket and blue hair, which reminded me that the movie was cool but the book was better (Where was the blobby, maggot other dad? Why was there a pumpkin dad in his stead?!) and the book just made me feel fuzzy and warm inside again. Thus, G-Star = Awesomeness!

BOY by Band of Outsiders

BOY made me think of wild-child teens decked out in 70’s accoutrements, mixed with a grayer version of Blair Waldorf (I can’t believe I’m saying that). Also, yachts off the coast of New England. Yachts that well-to-do 50’s girls with nice cardigans (and poufed bobs, and pearl earrings) wrapped around their shoulders ride. They eat finger sandwiches and scream when they see a spout of water. “Its a whale!”

Chloe

Chloe reminded me of… guess what! LAST SEASON CELINE. Perhaps I’m being too skeptical or paranoid, but Chloe Fall 2010 looks eerily similar to Celine Spring 2010. I AM DISAPPOINTED HANNAH. I expect better from you Hannah (because obviously Hannah is reading this, and reeling over my harsh review) H., learn a lesson from Philo. You can still keep a brand style/aesthetic, but you can do so without being repetitive.

Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs reminded me of old ladies, libraries on sunny days, golden summer-fall days, cups of hot cocoa, and sandy beaches. I am absolutely in love with this collection – “Over the Rainbow” suited this collection perfectly, as it was bliss. Plus, The Wizard of Oz is awesome! Team Jacobs FTW!

Balmain

I am not a fan of Balmain, and I am using this blog as a conduit for my complaints. At first I was infatuated with Balmain – after all, I am easily lured in by sequins (sleazy salesmen, remember this!) but as I saw more and more of Blahmain, I was less impressed. Decarnin’s silhouette remains the same every season – sequined micro-mini with sharp shoulders, V-neck dress with slit up the side, or skinny jeans and a military jacket swathed in paraphernalia. The only thing that seems to change are the colour sequins used, and the minor adjustments – changes seem to constitute a “new theme” in D’s world. Really, Decarnin, a sparkly mini with a fringe does not equal New Idea! New Theme!!!! Balmain’s collections are the old pieces of salvaged leftovers rolled into a casserole, and presented as something fresh and new. Or the nasty hog anus and tail that is ground up, and squished into a hot dog.

Grr. That isn’t to say that I don’t give the guy some cred. He must have something, if the fashion world constantly goes gaga over his looks.

24 Feb

Obviously when I find the most obnoxious thing on the rack, I must buy it and OBVIOUSLY I must pair it with other obnoxious-y, you’ll-forget-everything-about-this-random-day-except-my-seizure-inducing-amazingness-outfit pieces. Its who I am *smile, Amanda hair flick*

Oh, yay for blurry! 😀 For once, I love my camera for this

Almost everything was thrifted

What do you see?

I see a pigeon.
