The Girl in the Pink Scarf

I'm taking a break from my videos until I am done with school--three more days, but whose counting?

Anyway, I am wearing all black in this outfit with a pop of pink color.  In honor of the fact that my snowball flower tree, (I think that is what you call it,) bloomed, I went with a summer look with winter roots.  The flowers really do look like snowballs, so it is fun to interpret that.

The thing that I love about fashion is that you can take something as simple as a flower and interpret it.  My interpretation--dark colors and a summer scarf.  WARNING: If you are going to wear a scarf in the spring/summer months, it helps if you wear a lightweight one.

Outfit:  The shirt is from H and M, the shorts are from Old Navy, and the scarf was a gift from a friend.

That Hippie Swagg

"I'm a former hippie, so clothes are important to me - your clothes defined you in that period. I guess clothes still define people."
-John Hughes

I think that today's hippie is  boho fashion.  I am beginning to fall in love with the boho clothing--the long, flowing outfits represent the essence of freedom to me.  The hippie movement was one of rebellion against the common way of life, and boho rebels against the idea that fashion has to be put together.  Your hair can be out of place, and you can wear one too many bracelets.  

Video Notes:  I am wearing a Forever 21 top, a Target skirt, and the scarf was thrifted I got my ring from Forever 21 as well.  Song is called Places to Go by the Leftover Cuties.

An Apology and an EPIC Playlist

I know that it has been a week and one day since I last posted.  (Yikes! It seems worse when I actually write it.)

As a new blogger, I really wanted to post every day, but alas, time goes by and the hours are not spent with my dear friend, Netflix.

Even the things that I enjoy doing seem to be put on hold when I find a new t.v. series to ruin my life.

Grrrrrrah! (Strange sound effect)

A few weeks ago I started to watch Make It Or Break It.  Fatal mistake, especially before my school's end of the year finals.  Note to self--do you really need more things to waste your time with?

The only thing that I have done in the past few days feel bad about myself for not having a lifelong dream to train for.

Making my video features is a little time consuming, so in the meantime, I am giving you a list of totally epic songs.

Summer LOVE

  1. Icona Pop – I Love It - feat. Charli XCX [Original Version]
  2. Miike Snow – Animal
  3. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Can't Hold Us - feat. Ray Dalton
  4. Pitbull – Feel This Moment
  5. The Neighbourhood – Sweater Weather
  6. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Ten Thousand Hours
  7. Kimbra--Settle Down
  8. Chiddy Bang – Mind Your Manners - feat. Icona Pop
  9. Marina and The Diamonds – How To Be A Heartbreaker
  10. Capital Cities – Safe and Sound
  11. Icona Pop – We Got The World - Original Mix
  12. Marina and The Diamonds – Primadonna
  13. Nicki Minaj – High School
  14. Imagine Dragons – Demons
  15. MGMT – Time To Pretend

I am totally obsessed with Marina and the Diamonds and Icona Pop--just in case you couldn't tell!

Let me just say that I absolutely love 20's fashion.  I would have loved to live in this time period as a city girl going to parties and clubs.  The dresses and headpieces are absolutely amazing!  I know that a ton of people have done posts about The Great Gatsby because of the movie, but I did one anyway.

I am wearing a headpiece that I made using black ribbon and flowers.  I also put on one of my favorite dresses that has a messy skirt made of sequins.  (They are not sewn on in an organized way, which I just love for some reason!)  For part of the video, I had a white boa, which may be a little cliche, but it is always fun to play with.

Goodbye Winter

Where I live, it snowed two weeks ago.  There has honestly been no spring weather whatsoever, which means no spring wardrobe.  Today was the first day that the temperature was hot, so I have decided to take the opportunity to bid adieu to winter and hello to the warm months.

The dress that I am wearing is one that is pretty casual.  It is great because you can throw it on after getting home from school or work and still feel cute.

Pajamas in Public

Since yesterday, I seem to have come down with some virus.  (That's why I didn't post yesterday.)  Because it was pajama day at school yesterday, and I did go to school for a while before coming home.  (I was of course, in my pajamas.)  In the mornings, I take a class at a school that is different from my home school, and I had forgotten that nobody there would wearing pajamas.

Upon walking into the building, I was greeted with stares and of course, the "nice pj's" comment made me feel a lot better about myself.  I held my head high and realized that to the outside world, I must look like a complete idiot.  I was probably going to be known as pajama girl for the rest of my existence.

While I don't exactly condone wearing pajamas in public unless you have a legitimate reason, there is a teachable moment.  Fashion is an art form that teaches us to push boundaries and express ourselves in a way that we can't do in any other way.

Like it or not, people will stare.  It is no fun to go through life blending into the background, so even if you don't go wear patterned pants, at some point, take the leap.

The Toilets at the Met

I hear Anna Wintour went punk... Just kidding, but check out NY Magazine here.

I just finished watching the red carpet coverage for the Met Gala this evening.  The clothes, the shoes, and toilets?  Yes, that's right.  The exhibit seems to have a model of the bathroom at CBGB punk club.  Now isn't that nice.  All of the celebrities and designers have been invited to an event where they can look at a bathroom.

All kidding aside, in the parts that I saw, there was only one instance of fur, and I couldn't quite catch who was wearing it.

Now, on to the clothes!  I felt very inadequate considering I am only wearing a blue blouse and jeans.  Then Katy Perry Stepped out in a Dolce and Gabbana dress.  Then there was Sarah Jessica Parker in a headdress.  (At one point I am pretty sure I saw Katy Perry point at said headdress.)

Oh to be living in New York and to see all of the famous people.  Jimmy Fallon and his wife were there, and so was January Jones.  Everyone came out to see what high fashion calls punk.  At least punk doesn't frequently involve fur.

(I know this is not a very well written post, but I am just trying to put something up every day.  Besides, ain't nobody got time to make sure every post is perfect.)

Sunday Blues: May 5, 2013

On pretty much all of my favorite blogs, people stop posting for the weekend and just leave you a list of links.  Sunday is pretty much my day of procrastination, and that is honestly why I need someone to post on the day that pretty much sucks.  (I basically spend the whole day holed up in my room procrastinating until about 5.  Then I get all stressed out and end up just not doing things.)  Anyway, here are my favorite links of the week.

  • Check out Go Fug Yourself's Freaky Fug Friday.
  • Tavi Gevinson posted this a while ago on the 5 year anniversary of her blog, The Style Rookie. 
  • How a New York Times writer became a hipster.
  • The Glamourai's Shop the Shoot  I love the clothes in there!
  • Style Bubble posted this and I love the pictures--I think the pictures are pretty awesome.  Plus, where can I get one of those eye flower things?
  • Finally, Hello Giggles shares animal inspired fashion
I'm off to work on several incredibly boring tasks.  Enjoy your procrastination!
