I wanna know for sure

I emerged, blinking, into the sunlight and discovered that it was winter no more.
The natural progression was something as tacky and bright as the occasion requires. I love my new cheetah print dress from Asos. I bought it in a 14 and it manages to be looser than the product photo suggested, yet my chest adjusts the waistband to several inches higher than the designer intended. That's sorta weird, but I love it anyway.
American Apparel grosses me out. Their advertising is among the most shamefully misogynist I have ever seen. But these are leather are were marked down to like...10 dollars. I can't stop wearing them. Capitalism is hard.
Do ya like my new specs? They are courtesy of Firmoo and I hope to post my full review later today or tomorrow morning. Let me say this much: I LOVE THEM.

She Leans Great

I dyed my hair a weird burgundy color, but it looks almost black here. I guess that's what happens when I use basic flash in the middle of the night.
I keep trying to pin my hair back just a little, but it's still so short! I just look like a suburban mom.

I may have turned my pajamas into a cool outfit.
Really I just wanted to try out my new black lipstick from Impulse Cosmetics. Love it!! The application is a little annoying, but I imagine that's why they're $6.99. I was just careful with liner. It helped.

Fine and Dandy

I got these shoes on eBay. They arrived today and I just had to wear them. Telling myself that they needed to be broken in helps, but really I just like marking my territory. Um, with my feet.
With shipping, they were about $15. That was a little much for my stingy heart, but I was tired of looking and really wanted such a pair. Besides, I looked up the brand. New Cole Haan shoes go for quite a lot, so $15 for a gently used pair isn't half bad.
I took these pictures just outside the laundry room. There were people in there doing laundry, of all things. Usually strangers watching me take pictures of myself is a little mortifying, but I decided that if they weren't going to be embarrassed about blasting their very stupid music, I wasn't going to be embarrassed by my endless barrage of selfies.

I'll love you in springtime

I fundamentally refused to put February on this morning. Instead I revisited some old friends. Remember when I used to wear these ridiculously tall boots all the time? I had such high hopes.
Remember when I used to carry this bag all the time? It shouts its own praises. And this belt (which is on its way to the grave)--and this blouse--and even this lipstick!
Clothes are memories.
I can sort of put my hair in a bun now! I've been growing my hair out for...more than a year? Most exciting!




These earrings were a gift from my darling friend Elizabeth. They're almost as cute as her.

That's fine by me.

Thrill

This is the kind of semesterwinter—lifetime, perhaps that begs me to just drift. But wandering around in a massive, ugly sweatshirt and leggings doesn't make me feel like the adult I need to be, so I'm gonna try and use this year's "Fatshion February" to dress like the adult I wish I was.
Here I'm pretending to  be an adult who is sleek and plays the bongos.
Literally no one wishes the lighting in my room was better than I. These were taken in primarily natural light. In the middle of the day. Think about that.
The sleek woman who plays the bongos probably never wears jackets, being too thinly tied to this earth to notice the elements. I notice the elements lots, though, and it's February. I threw on my trusty denim in lieu of a sweater. (I just don't think she'd wear any of my sweaters.)

Feeling Degas

I wore this to class, then to thrifting, then to a crafting party! Quite a day.
I'd forgotten how much I like this skirt! I'd happily buy another Asos Curve skater skirt in another color if I could find one as cheap as this was. They are pretty and appreciably foofy-twirly without anything underneath them, which I deeply appreciate. Alas, they're not listed anymore! Maybe they'll come back one day. I loved the teal one. Paired here with this wide neckline, I spent the whole day feeling slightly like a ballerina.
I initially put these glasses on as a joke. Then they just sort of...never left my face.
