What I wore for Christmas dinner with my brother &sister-in-law. Also, in the above picture I am apparently dancing. I think I was in mid-pose when the timer went off.
I remember thinking, “Oh, I’ll pull the scarf away so you can see more of the shirt!” It… didn’t really work. There wasn’t much to see anyway.
- Brown sweater: Christmas gift
- Cream cardigan: H&M
- Scarf: Charlotte Russe
- Skirt: H&M
- Boots: Vintage
- Tights: Off-brand
Yay for last outfit of 2009! It’s been hell, here’s hoping 2010 is better!!
A relatively quick photomanip in honor of what Facebook claims is “To Write Lady Gaga on Your Arms Day.” I love me some Lady Gaga, so I decided to take part – unfortunately, I didn’t find out until about 8 this evening! So instead I took inspiration &made a quick shoop.
I got all 200 images from this photoshoot this week, so I’m going to be shopping a few up &posting them to my flickr, so anyone who’s curious can check it out 🙂
Also, did you notice? A variation on this (finally) became my custome header!

I may confuse some with this one. Let me just preface that this is NOT! LOLITA! I used some of my favorite lolita pieces, but the outfit itself is not lolita. KAY? KAY.
This outfit had a mission. That’s right, a MISSION. Said mission is, however, top secret, so I can’t tell you what it is. SUCK IT UP!
- Headbow: Angelic Pretty
- Hoodie: Thrifted
- Alice shirt: Spencer’s
- Skirt: AYA
- Tights: Off brand
- Heels: Charlotte Russe
Always looking for an excuse to wear these shoes! I bought them because they were cheap, not too uncomfortable, &hey, every girl needs a pair of 5-inch stilettos, just in case, but I haven’t had an excuse to wear them until tonight. Oh yes, I was on a MISSION.
Also apologies for that shitty little shoopage in the corner – my roommate’s stuff was in the frame &I didn’t wanna fuck with it, so I just shooped over it. Yay technology!!
So, did I accomplish my mission? Wouldn’t you like to know! Well, okay, so the truth is I have no idea. But I’m thinking yes.

It is November. Dear Universe, it is November. November means scarves and boots and long sleeves. September and October, when you were rainy and 40 degrees out? I would have appreciated this 70-degrere day then. November is supposed to be brisk &require cute borderline-winter fashion. I was actually too hot in this outfit today so I ended up switching to flats &going without the long sleeves. Also, in the above picture I appear to be channeling Napolean.
You may notice that my make-up looks completely different in the two pictures. That is because I photoshopped it in, and I am unashamed.
- Legs shirt &boots: Forever 21
- Skirt: Justice
- Leggings and long-sleeve shirt: Offbrand
I had nothing to do today, so I didn’t do anything. It was awesome. That’s a lie – I should have been doing homework and finishing my Philosophy paper, buuuut I didn’t. Oops. Anyone know what the Sophists had to say about goodness, happiness, and what constituted “the good life?”

I don’t actually know what day this was, just that it was sometime near mid-October. I think it was actually earlier than this. Oops. Sorry for the delay, too- I totally forgot I had these pictures, &just found them on my camera earlier today.
I’m not sure who, how, or why, but someone covered almost every inch of pavement on campus with little chalk dots. I thought they looked like stars, especially on the black basketball court.
- Scarf, heart pochette: H&M
- Top(s) &boots: Offbrand
- Skirt: Justice (you know, that store that used to be called Limited Too)
- Brown tights: Claire’s
- Schoolbag: Mother Garden
I’m actually getting very excited for winter weather. Scarves, boots, gloves, hats… probably going to be the only thing keeping me sane once the cold weather sets in. I was actually sad today that it was GORGEOUS out &I couldn’t wear my stripey long-sleeved shirt and scarf – I must be losing my mind…

Also known as the date that wasn’t.
Yeah, so I cut my hair. Anyway, this is what I wore for what I thought was a date with a punky-gothy-“alt”-guy who defies modern labeling techniques. Just my type. In fact, he has a girlfriend; isn’t that always the way?
- Dress: H&M
- Blouse: Anna House Fashion
- Leggings: Mandee
- Hat: Forever21
- Sandals: Target
Went for a sort of futuristic film noir type look. The hat was a later addition as he picked it out for me at the mall. Before that I was wearing a huge red hair bow from Icing.
Also, a few weeks ago I bought this coat at a tag sale in Massachusetts for $2. Wore it that night for the first time.
Isn’t that how it goes in these movies? My feet were numb by the end of the night. I woke up the next morning &they were still cold.
I don’t really look like myself in either of these pictures. Huh. The hat is really very adorable, I’ll need to get a better picture of it soon. It has big felt flowers on the side – very flapper-style!

Sorry for the lack of detail – all you can’t see of the dress ending pretty short &my leggings, &the details of my sneakers.
Another outfit from SF. Worn to meet Victoria Suzanne &explore our haunter circa 1890’s hotel, &for a few paranormal run-ins (not the last of the trip).
- Shirtdress: Charlotte Russe
- Jacket: Charlotte Russe (shopping spree!!)
- Leggings: Forever21
- Sneakers: Reebok
Not that you can see, but my hair was in a topsy tail. Oh, my childhood!
Again with the grainy picture. .GIF, you’re dead to me. LUCKILY! I realized how to save as a .PNG (AKA, I… found it on the list. Go me) so the next outfit from this day (ridicu-loli because Vix dressed up) is much nicer quality.
Supposedly this Bishop’s Chair is original to the hotel from when it was a girl’s school, &supposedly it is haunted – people feel themselves being touched by disembodied hands. My experience was a bit different, but there are definitely some restless spirits in that hotel.
- Headbow: BABY, the Stars Shine Bright
- T-shirt: Charlotte Russe
- Skirt: Strawberry Cream by Mew
- Footless tights: Marshall’s, years ago, I think
- Sneakers: Reebok
This outfit would be called lolita-inspired – always seems like a cop-out to me, but since it’s definitely not true lolita (for many reasons, not least of all beign my sneakers!). I need to come up with a term for this style – pseudo-loli? Any ideas?

Why do I look so weird in all the San Francisco pictures? Well, besides the ridiculous faces I’m making. This is what I wore for the plane ride from Westchester County, NY to San Francisco.
- Dress: Goodnight Miss Princess (hence the title)
- Cardigan: Kohl’s years ago, modified by me
- Bow flats: Charlotte Russe
- Leggings: Forever21 (cotton leggings! $4.50!! I died!)
Weird pose is: that tree was huge! Oddly, we don’t have trees that big on the East Coast, or when we do, they aren’t in the middle of the city! I love how San Francisco looks like it was built around the Earth as opposed to the other way around.
The picture got all grainy when I saved it. PS7, WHY don’t you have .png capabilities?! Sigh.
