"I thought you were just magical, like unicorns..."

So, today I wore socks and sandals, BUT I wore my current favorite Vintage store find with it, a marc jacobs sweater. Yes it is a men's sweater, but what do you do when you find second hand marc jacobs? you buy it. That over yonder to the left ( HA to the left to the left, Beyonce anyone? no... ok) is my favorite picture of Marc Jacobs. He just exudes awesomeness.

It isn't blatantly a man's sweater, its pretty cool actually, striped and normal sweatshirt material, fuzzy on one side and uniform on the other. BUT the twist is that this sweater, has the fuzzy on the outside, so the inside is really like a normal sweater's outside. I was, needless to say, overjoyed at the discovery of it in the back of my favorite vintage store. Even while wearing this sweater, i found myself in an odd sort of mood.

You know those days, the days where you have done really nothing of importance except finish a chem assignment, essentially sat on your behind waiting for some kind of inspiration, but none comes, and you ask yourself why. Even flipping through the pages of Nylon leaves something left to be desired, and trust me, that doesn't happen often. I mean seriously, look at it, doesn't that just scream "read me I will fill your silly little head with knowledge and ideas" ???
SO I decided to get myself out of this slump and into not a slump. Well, really Erin decided. She suggested a lovely walk out in nature, instead of the gym. It was so awesome. Fresh air really does amazing things to your brain, when the wind blew, I could actually feel the cobwebs being cleaned out of my head. SO here I sit, ideas swirling freely around my brain, like the next post I am working on, the way in which I plan on organizing my study habits for this round of examinations, and of course, what I am going to wear tomorrow... I am thinkning the shirt that makes me feel like I could be captain of some ship in Star Trek.... Good things to come my friends.

Now, go find something funny and laugh at it. Seriously, do it. Smiling actually sends messages to your brain that makes you happier. Facial Feedback. Thanks Psychology 1023....


XOXO Gossip Girl..... IS THIS A JOKE?

Oh Kayyyyy
So, you know how everyone has their guilty pleasures, and their dirty little secrets.... like your mom secretly likes to lick the spoon when she is making a cake, or your best friend blasts her music and dances like a nutcase in her room for precisely 12 minutes everyday. WELL mine, is Gossip Girl. I know it isn't that scandalous, but the scandal is that I am not really in it for he show, yeah the characters are gorgeous, and the fact that they are all with each other offers up varying degrees of cuteness, but the truth is, really, i'm in it for the clothes.
           Seriously, the stylist for that show (eric damen, is that his name? I believe he is still in that position, I mean he is doing a pretty stellar job, why get rid of him now, if it ain't broke, don't fix it in my humble opinion) has his shit figured.
            I mean god. The schoolgirl look was revamped to turn away from pure sex and transformed into classy and in style, yet with a girlish flair. If you told me cable knit leggings could be sexy, I would have scoffed, yes scoffed in your face. Blair's iconic headband has had major influence over girls everywhere.The out of school clothing, well god, its just to die for. From Blair's preppy, designer duds, and Serena's trend savvy choices, to Jenny's incredible transformation to the dark and intriguing look which she now possesses.
          So I was all ready to go get my GG fix for the week, and oh good try clare, sorry but DANCING WITH THE STARS HAS TAKEN GG'S PLACE.... ok ctv or whatever channel to whom I entrusted my weekly satisfaction, that's just great. Now what, I watch GG online, on Saturday nights AT 9? Alright, well we aren't friends anymore.


So, first post, on my first blog.
I don't know how I am expected to feel about that... excited? potentially. happy? most likely. exposed? definitely.
This whole blogging thing is actually a terrifying world. People reading my thoughts and ideas, judging them and forming their own, potentially conflicting opinions.... I hope I can handle it... HA too late.

Anyway, a little about me, I am cheery and happy, pretty much all the time, unless I'm not, which is a rare occurrence. I think everyone has some kind of good in them, you just gotta dig a bit. I am just like my dad, actually a lot like my mom too, and I look like both of them equally, so really I have no idea who I am more like. My sister is totally opposite of me, but she is a lot like both of the parentals too... weird.

I have a passion for fashion, ew please don't ever say that, and I am sorry if you have some burning desire to do so (that's another thing, sorry is basically my favorite word, I say it when I don't need to, but feel like I should just to be safe) but it is an unfortunate expression that has been worked into our brains from a very early age, watching girls on tv playing with passion for fashion dolls and the likes. I am negatively impressed, as it were. My bad, got a little off track there, back to the important stuff, some of my favs include Marc Jacobs, enough said. Karl Lagerfeld, as a person he is just the bee's knees and as the creative director and head designer of Chanel, I more or less worship him.
Balenciaga and Balmain have recently (well relatively recently, aka within the past 2 years, because before that, really I was naive and unaware of my surroundings) become two of my favorite houses as well.

smile, right now, do it. thank you.
