Stars


Ok I admit it, sometimes I pretend I'm on the cover of i-D magazine while taking blog photos! Since I've been living the semi-unemployed life, it's fun to go stomping around like a mean boss in the most gothic outfits this summer can handle. The weird lace body-skirt I'm wearing was thrifted from the lingerie section while I was in high school and is one of those freaky pieces that I wear once every two years but still can't get rid of it. I should probably just send it to Tavi already, who would wear it better than me but it's just so much fun to wear. Plus, the sleeveless turtleneck dress underneath is so 90s and I'm wearing it to a Buffy the Vampire Slayer marathon of undetermined length. It doesn't get much more perfect than that.
I'm entering the last year of my undergraduate degree and am figuring out exactly what I want to do. So far the list of super-duper meaningful activities I'd like to engage in includes:

1. Make more zines, sell advertising
2. Do yoga
3. Volunteer with Food Not Bombs
4. Write a fashion column in the school newspaper
5. Attend LG Fashion Week
6. Dumpster dive
7. Write some more

I am completely in love with this outfit. And I love you even more for including Old Gregg as your spokesmodel ;) I am definitely voting for you again.

Let me know if you can find a good way to get motivated to do yoga. That's on my goal list as well and I just can't seem to get my ass moving.

YES I LOVE YOU.

I think I alrdy voted but lemme just go check :*.

This outfit is just spectacular. And i know i've said this before, but your hair! I love it. the short bangs. They match the outfit so well! They match all your outfits so well.

Don't send it to Tavi! Keep it for that Buffy marathon and beyond.. who knows if you'll need a black lace body-skirt in the future for something :D

love,
mimi

Buffy marathons of undetermined length: so necessary.

Magnet said...

Nice skirt, I think you should wear it more.. I could totally see it in more of your outfits. Good luck with your final year btw, I'm in my last semester right now 0_0... 7 weeks to go!

Lydia said...

This dress is amazing. Love.

Born for Joy said...

The dress makes it look like you're summoning something within an, albeit pink, incantation circle. Is that a good thing? .. HELL YEAH
