i scan stuff




Some relatively recent acquisitions that I decided to scan for your viewing pleasure. Oh wait, the iPod and headphones aren't anything new, my bad. Fuzzy convertible scarf, two bottles of OPI "Baby Its Coal Outside", and a lace button-down shirt. Wooooooooooo!

stud muffin


Despite all the proclamations that studs are over, I am still very much in like with them. Especially when studs of all different shapes and sizes come together to create something, mmm like a shoe per se?

Too many good things at once?

Edit: For all those who asked, and anyone else who's wondering, the top is from Target. You can get it on the site for 12 dinero right now.

hidden wedge



There's something very sneaky about a shoe that has a heel without actually looking like it has one (read: well at first glance anyway). When it comes to footwear, I like deception....you?

listen up




Little stud earrings are more attractive to me than bigass chandeliers. I like how these look like disco balls, little black goth disco balls that is... Kind of a weak reference to that godly YSL black stone circle ring too, don't you think?

Mmm I'm sporting the 15-foot long scarf I knit, again. That's all.

canvas faux


Balenciaga? Chanel? Herm├Ęs? Kind of. Canvas versions of designer bags. I think I like the Balenciaga interpretation the best. Imagine toting that around with head to toe black on black on black outfit. Nice little contrast, yes. Uhh I don't know what to say. They're $100. Looking out for the fellow recessionistas out there...

PS: I'm back at uni and it feels suh good to be back. I have so much free space now that I have a single, whoooo! New classes start tomorrow...

are your rings weapons


Yay, come to mama pretty metals! Yay for cheap thrills. Yay for jewelery that doubles as weaponry. Yay for predominantly silver, chrome, and platinum finger things. Yay for packages. Yay for the end of winter break (read: it's been getting a bit dull) and getting back to uni. Yay for new semester and new classes. Yay for 10th day in the new year. Mmm there are many things to yay about.

teacher mail


How about that? Some throwback material to make me remember the events of high school senior year. I got this in the mail today from a teacher I had in high school, twice! There's a bit of a story behind how this photo ended up back in my hands. Typically, seniors can submit a baby picture to the yearbook, but seeing as how the yearbook staff/students are pretty faulty, my picture wasn't included and I didn't get my photo back. Needless to say, I was a bit peeved. I have no idea how my math teacher got a hold of it, but I'm so glad he took the time to send it to me (:

PS: Gossip Girl starts tonight. Yes its overrated, yes parts of it are so fake, yes certain characters are annoying, but omgomgomg its back!
