Because I just couldn’t bring myself to take another even-worse lit then this picture in my big mirror! All I wore on the bottom were my paint-covered skinny jeans because I helped paint a set for drama after school and those chocolate brown shoes I stole from my mom. By the way, set painting is harder then it looks! Next time you’re attending a play (or being dragged to one by family members/significant others) you’d better appreciate the effort that the art kids put into the set! :D

That’s my mom’s high school jersey, by the way. It says Ponca City Senior 74…my mom’s old! And here’s a closeup of all the necklaces:

I’ll do my best to figure out where I got these..hmm..
Okay, owl necklace which is actually a magnifying glass, ModCloth. Silver dagger necklace, my wonderful boyfriend. (Oh, it’s for stabbing rapists, of course. It’s actually pretty pointy!) Gold and silver rectangle necklace, thrifted. Brown beaded necklace and world-on-a-string necklace, my friend’s grandmother. Peace sign necklace, my mom’s. I can’t stop stealing her wardrobe lately! And last but not least, bird necklace from Target. PHEW! This is getting pretty heavy around my neck, I’ve gotta admit…but I got lots of compliments so it’s all good!

Tell me…do I look elfen!? It’s the first thing that popped into my head when I put on these shoes, but since I love them I wore them anyways. I kept my elf suspicions to myself and nobody mentioned it…so maybe I’m just crazy?

Scarf: Target
Shoes, vest, and other vest (worn as dress: my mom’s!
Belt: thrifted? Or maybe my mom’s…or maybe both!
Tights: The Bay

And CLICK FOR BIGGER! I’ve realized how horribly small my thumbnails are, and how easy that problem is to correct, so voila!

i found shoes!

As I was looking for something in my front hall closet, I found some of my mom’s sweet old shoes. Here they are with today’s boring outfit (for a family dinner):

Vest: AA
Tanktop: Libertine for Target
Cardigan: UO
Jeans: Shank (finally a different pair! omg!)
Shoes: My mother’s!

Here’s a closeup:

I love these! They’re both so comfy, too. I went with the brown ones.

PS. Can you tell that we’re in the process of painting? :P

It was so beautiful outside today so I decided to get outside for a bit and take some pictures.

Jacket: Vintage
Scarf: Target
Sweater: Hand me down
Jeans: Dish
Shoes: Blackspot

Speaking of Blackspot, my new issue of Adbusters came yesterday…and if you don’t already read it, trust me, you need to start! It’s been my favorite magazine for a few years now and it gets me thinking.

sorry, another mirror picture…

It’s been so nice out lately that this is all that I have to wear. (It might look like a lot, but I get cold, okay?!?)

Jacket: Vintage
Scarf and sweater: Thrifted
Jeans: Dish
Shoes: My friend’s brothers

And for those of you that might have noticed..yeah, I really only have one pair of jeans that I actually wear! I’m hard to fit for jeans, and these are perfect, so I live in them. They’re covered in paint, partially from art class and partially from painting my family room with my boyfriend, which just makes me like them more. :)

the prada video.

I’m sure you’ve seen it. At least three of the blogs that I love and read regularly have posted the new Prada video, and honestly, I can’t believe that anyone’s falling for it. It’s almost scary to me how they create it under the premise of art, and make it very current and fashionable (they are Prada, after all) and people actually fall for it! Of course, the video is beautiful. But if something is created for the sole purpose of selling me something that I do not need, especially when it’s a brand that charges extreme prices, I just cannot look at it and appreciate it as an art form. Is it REALLY just me and my hate of brand label culture, or does anyone else notice how fucked up it seems that the ultimate goal in this character’s life seems to be to aquire more Prada clothing? When she’s spinning around at the end, absolute joy overwhelming her because of her beautiful new bag and dress, it kinda freaks me out. There are so many horrible things happening in the world right now, but nothing matters when you’ve got a three bajillion dollar designer bag magically, for free, from some mythical creature. Never mind about where that bag was made, or by who, or the chemicals and dyes and where they came from (and went after they were used). And of course, she’s skinny, perfect, and white. But you know, I’m probably over-reacting…it just got to me for some reason. Our culture dumbfounds me sometimes. If you haven’t seen it, here’s the video so you can judge for yourself.

What do you think? Am I being one of those bitchy, annoying hippies or do I have a point?
