she wears an egyptian ring that sparkles before she speaks

Forgive the excessive amount of pictures in this post; I'm trying to get the most out of my crappy camera by trying new angles, so we'll see how that works out. I went shopping for the first time in quite a while and it was the best feeling ever. There were definitely some items I "needed".

Although my outfit wasn't initially inspired by her, I'm definitely giving off a Blair Waldorf vibe (Gossip Girl. *grimace* Yeah, I watch it), which is absolutely fine by me because Blair is the bomb.

Corny pic. Note the 'smeyesing' going on here. God, I hate Tyra. Did anyone see that Top Model episode? She coined this ridiculously annoying phrase "smeyes" (I'm guessing at the spelling here considering it's a fake word), which is a mash-up of 'smiling with your eyes'. She kept repeating it over and over again throughout the entire episode, yelling at the models, "ARE YOU SMEYESING??!!" Then she started to say that they needed to "smeyes with their eyes", or in other words... 'smile with their eyes with their eyes'. Damn you Tyra! Then my head exploded. Alright, anyway... here's a close-up:

Headband: H&M (one of my new purchases!)

Polka-dot tights: F21 (also a new purchase!) Skirt: F21, Boots: Aldo, Sweater: F21 (new as well. Can you tell I like Forever 21?)

I'm a rattlesnake babe, I'm like fuel on fire

Well I haven't posted in quite some time. Today my outfit was partially inspired by The Stylish Wanderer, because her post made me remember that I own lace tights!

I just watched Factory Girl a couple days ago, has anyone seen it? I thought it was a really great movie and it definitely piqued my interest in Edie Sedgwick. Not only is she linked to Bob Dylan (which makes her infinitely more interesting to me), but her life was so incredibly tragic. I find the whole Factory scene completely fascinating. I'm hopelessly nostalgic... sometimes I really feel like I was born into the wrong generation. The 60s are like antiquity for me... the best times have already come and gone!

My Edie-inspired pose, haha. I'm lame.
Blazer: Gap, Shirt: random Triumph motorcycle T-shirt courtesy of my dad, Skirt: American Eagle, Tights: F21, Boots: Charlotte Ruse. Sorry about the darkness of the photos. My camera pretty much blows.

big noise

My zombie prom date costume turned out pretty awesome, in case anyone was interested. I think I missed my calling as a zombie make-up artist. I'll post some pictures from the Halloween extravaganza once I get them from my friend (and you know, if they aren't too humiliating). This was my outfit for today:

I was inspired by Natalie Off Duty , so thank you! :) I like the idea of pants with a higher waist, and these are the highest pants I own. Not sure if you can tell very well by the picture but they are mint green, which I found to be quite delightful when I bought them.
Pants: H&M, Boots: Aldo, Shirt: F21, Cardi/Vest: F21

See my poster of Bob in the background? I'm obsessed. That is one of many that populates my room.
