rain is not is a fashion staple

Some things I'm not so sure of. I'm not sure if adding that belt was just overkill or actually made an exciting ensemble out of an otherwise plain outfit. One thing I am sure of is rain is definitely not necessary for straightened hair or suede boots to look their best. I like the cold, but rain is just one of the world's many drawbacks. It makes the world gray and slippery and muddy, oh my! Despite my frazzled locks, I looked relatively put together is someone who's not 97.3% of the population's eyes. Maybe the 2.7% of the population that actually does appreciate style and youth's dying desire to be original in this way thought I looked simply dapper. Unfortunately, I didn't run into anyone who didn't stare at me with disapproving eyes at Baja Fresh. But deep down, I know I looked HOT* in my gray hollister over sized sweater, white tunic tee from Abercrombie & Fitch, black legging jeans from Hollister, plaid scarf from Hollister, black suede Steve Madden boots from Nordstrom's, and red skinny belt from Forever 21. I know, I know, how unique, how jaw dropping, I'm wearing nothing that can't be purchased at your neighborhood mall, but who could tell if we all just wear t-shirts and sweatpants on the weekends. I'm just ecstatic to be wearing what I want on a weekday. Usually weekends are my prime time, since,..............(grimacing and crunching up forehead with lines of disgust)...........UNIFORMS, the slayer of all creativity and attempts to be original. Oh well, not today...HA!!! Peace, love, and you know the drill.

* Literally. It was way too warm for that sweater in that grease joint.

Camera means real blogging!

Christmas has come and gone, meaning many new gadgets sitting on my desk waiting to be placed in my sea of pink I call my room. One of those gadgets just happened to be camera, so now I can really start blogging like I should. This outfit entails one of my other christmas presents, a gray rag scarf designed and signed by Althea Harper from Project Runway, a gift from my uncle who has an incredible knack for finding famous people without trying to. It also includes a scribble hometown heroes design tee from Urban Outfitters, H&M black high waisted skirt, which is one of my most worn pieces for sure, and forever 21 sunglasses and linty oversized sweater. The scarf reminds of a sea urchin. Ha! I will call it my sea urchin scarf and that will be that.
