Ain't Had No Fun


Today I'm testing out the romantic semi-gothic Lula Magazine sort of look. I have to say, for the most part I'm a total comfort bum* so its nice to just 'dress up' one in a while.

Yesterday I made a 'found object art' sort of necklace. The zipper pull and the buckle are two items that I literally picked up off the ground and added to the necklace. I like how random the necklace is, but it still has a story.

*Wen I say bum, I mean it. On the days I don't do outfit posts, I'm generally lazing around unabashedly in sweats.

P.S. -This is killer random, but I must tell everyone that in the cafeteria a few days ago I saw a girl slather her hot dog in ranch dressing and egg salad. Does anyone else out there do this? Because I was really weirded out and want to know if that is a taste sensation that anyone else has tried.

LOL @ "taste sensation." I think I have to try that someday.

haha i used to pick up and collect random little trinkets like that. Though mine were never made into a necklace, they were just kept together in a hideous pile of small miscellaneous (sp?) objects.

Also, I like the shirt.

Hot dog, ranch dressing and egg salad?? Ewwwwww. I really like the necklace though. And I really love the outfit, I like the combination of the leggings and blouse and really think it works with your hair!

I love the necklace you made! And your outfit is really awesome.

PS. I don't delight in that taste sensation, but I do loves my ranch dressing - I might try it with just that and see if I don't hurl...

The necklace is really creative and cool. Before I read that you made it, I thought it was bought. MAD SKILLS!!!

neat necklace! I'm mostly a bum, too, for the most part.

and the hot dog story made me gag a little.

Toni said...

Wow the found object necklace you created is genius and looks really chic!

I would totally wear that with my gorgeous diamond earrings my fiance bought me from www.idonowidont.com when I go downtown with my girlfriends.

I'm totally inspired by the DIY idea and want to make one of those too, its very pretty!
