I don’t usually just show off other people’s work but this really struck a cord with me today.

I AGREE 110%. I like things because I like them; I don’t freaking care if they are mainstream or obscure or what. And my opinion will not change about it unless my taste changes. UGH.

I’m still in a sort of rough patch, but I’ll have more outfits within the next couple of days.

I have a lot of sequin clothes… there was that sequin dress that I wore in new york, the scarf with sequins on it that I wore that night I was a 1920’s Chicago flapper. And now… sequin leggings. This is good stuff, man.

Alright, I have a TON of pictures for you guys, I hope you really enjoy them.

The first outfit was my birthday outfit, the second was from my dad’s girlfriend. The third is focused on this awesome skirt I got at a thrift store, which I loveeee. The last is my sequin leggings!!! It’s a going out to party outfit, so I’m all jazzed up with my very trendy clothes. Grey suede boots: check. Sequins: check. Showing bandeau bra: check. Lace-back top: check. It’s allll there, lol.

Lastly is an outfit that’s pretty typical for me-I love the skirt thigh high combination. The sweater is a new addition however; my friend’s aunt let us go though some stuff she was giving away and this little treasure was in there! I love the way it lays-loose but flattering. Mmm, love.

Anyway, there’s a new boy. Let’s call him Cultural Theory.

Cultural Theory and I had a class together last semester, but we didn’t hang out really. He’s a sophomore and super cute. Haha. The past two or three weekends he’s found me at parties (okay so it’s not like I was hiding from him or anything) and danced with me. I liked that he didn’t immediately try to grind up on me or anything; we would just talk and dance kind of face to face not touching. It was sweet but also made me think that he didn’t like me “like that” or something. Which shows what low expectations I have of boys these days. On Saturday we were texting and I told him I didn’t want to go out to a party. So he asked if I wanted to go to snack bar (yay honeybuns and ice cream!) and watch a movie.

Almost like a real date, right?!! So exciting for me; seeing as I’m just used to guys drunkenly trying to feel me up at parties. Ew.

So I said yes, and we ended up back in his room watching Adventureland. Afterwords we talked for what seemed like an eternity, and then he kissed me. Yay! I spent that night, and the next in his room. He hasn’t asked me over since, which makes me question what’s going on… I hope he really likes me. We have been texting, and we’re supposed to go to dinner any minute.

I hope this works out and doesn’t turn into a weekend thing. What do you guys think? Been in similar situations?

Also, do you like the acid wash chambray? I don’t think it’s too too 80’s. Right?

Hit me up, Darlings!

Today was a bad day. A whole bunch of stuff is going on with my family–stuff that I can handle, but I just felt really upset about it today.

However, I got this skirt in the mail from my mom two days ago (I love her, she’s the greatest.) and I just had to put it up. I hope you guys like it! She also sent me sequin leggings. I have no idea what to wear them with!!! Any suggestions? I’m thinking a very plain white or grey tunic top or oversized button up shirt. Hmmm.

Anyways,

Leggings: Forever 21

Boots: Charlette Rousse, but they’re cheap and already scuffing. I don’t reccomend them; you can get higher quality of practically the same boots at somewhere like DSW or something.

Top: gifted

Skirt: gifted (Thanks mommy!)

Tonight I’m gonna watch a movie, hopefully that will make me feel better. Tomorrow I have to write a ten page paper that’s due monday! Thankfully it’s only winter study, which at my school means the expectations are very much lowered right now, ha.

I’d really like to hear some feedback guys, about the stuff I talk about, or the clothes I’m wearing, or asking things you want my opinion on. Really, it helps!

Thanks, Darlings.

Today was a lazy day. I literally did nothing. Which is a shame because I look cute, damn it. I really like these tights, and this sweater is a christmas gift.

Sorry for the general crappiness of these pictures… I really need to find a well light place to take these photos without wounding my own pride. Hm….

In other news, I went on a real date with the boy (I’m naming him Mr. Popular) last night. We ate sushi and argued about whether or not the phrase “March: in like a lion, out like a lamb” made sense. Obviously it does, he’s just a crazy person. I had a lot of fun, and I hope that he feels the same way. I like him a lot, but I have this strange intuition that he’s not going to make any sort of moves towards commitment any time soon. I mean, I know that we are at that point where if either of us hooked up with anyone else, confusion and anger to be had. But an actual “Hey do you want to be my girlfriend? Be facebook official?” conversation? Hasn’t happened. And even though we’ve only been hanging out for about two weeks, and that’s not very long, I still feel like he’s never going to initiate this conversation.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “well then maybe you should start the conversation. Take charge! Be a woman!”

Well, I know this is terrible, but when it comes to relationships, I am not a feminist. I am a very, very old fashioned girl. I like boys who lean in for the first kiss, and open doors, and want to drive, and ask me out on dates, and order at restaurants, and at least try to pay (sometimes splitting is good.), and asks me to be his girlfriend. I know. It’s pathetic; guys like a girl who takes charge. Well, too bad. Suck it up.

Maybe that sounds a little silly and harsh. Maybe I should get over myself and take charge. But I just can’t do it. I like things that way. Plus, he would probably be weirded out by me asking, no? I dunno. Ugg.

What do you Darlings think? Should I ask him, or wait to be asked? Let me know in the comments.

Hello darlings!

Today I have three outfits for you… one is from today Friday, one from Saturday, and the last is from today (Monday). I know I’ve been skipping around… and I’m sorry. I’m just a forgetful girl.

I also wore a really fantastic outfit when we went out saturday night, but I didn’t get a chance to take a picture of it. I’ll do that and put it up.

Phew! I really love my headphones… I actually take them with me everywhere, because I love to always be listening to music.

Things have been so intense here… study all week long, party all weekend long. It’s quite exhausting, but wonderful.

When I went away to college, I left this guy that I had really liked. He always refused to actually date me, and so we would hook up whenever we were together, and it always made me really sad that we were never really dating. I always ended up feeling sort of used afterwords. But I liked him so much, I let it happen. Now I see that there’s nothing wrong with not being ‘officially boyfriend-girlfriend’ but at the time it really hurt. And now he’s texting me telling me he loves me, and misses me, and can’t live with out me. To be honest, it’s really pissing me off. Now I’m trying to meet college guys, and have a better, more stable emotional life, and here you are acting the way I would have loved for you to act three months ago. It’s sort of ridiculous.

Why do I have so many boy troubles???

So I started college… about two weeks ago. Which means that I never did all those things I said I was going to do. Sorry. :-/

But I’m back! Do you forgive me? Awesome. 😀

So my life so far…

Let me start by saying that being at college has given me the excuse that I need to shop online. Which is bad. You’ll be seeing some of my new stuff when it comes in the mail. Which should be some time this week.

My classes are fantastic, and I’ve met absolutely wonderful people. Everyone is so interesting and fun. Plus the boys are super cute.

Speaking of boys…. I just don’t understand them. (boys are girls not understanding one another?? That’s revolutionary!) They think that life has to be so strict: either you’re in a relationship, and it’s super-serious, or you can’t like each other at all. Why can’t two people getting to know one another accept that they have chemistry, and things just happen how they happen? I have no problem with that. I think I might have given a guy the impression that I did, but that was because I was startled and confused. So now I don’t know what to do. Now we act like just friends, but I know that they’re something there. If I tell him, I could ruin our balance. If I never say anything… we may never have anything. It’s not like I want a relationship… I just want… acknowledgment. Does that make any sense? No? Sorry, I’ll move on.

I’m a little nervous that I’ve overloaded myself on my classwork. Everyone seems to have a lighter load than me, and it’s making rather worried. But this is what I do… so let’s just see what happens, shall we?

I’m sure your’ll all wondering what I’m wearing today (or your not at all… which is cool I guess…) so here it is:

Shoes: Thrifted

Dress: Charlotte Russe

Pearls: My great grandmothers

Shawl: Express

Bracelet: Gifted

I love this dress. ❤ It always makes me feel pretty when I’m down. Unfortunatly I’ve spent most of the day in my common room, so people don’t know how cute I look, haha. It’s like disney knew that a Jonas marathon would distract me. They totally did it on purpose.

Sorry I’ve been gone… I spent the weekend with my best friend. It was her graduation party, and then on Sunday she and I spent the day together. I missed her. In fact, I miss her again. I don’t know what I’m going to do without her at school. She’s such a doll, and she’s helped me through a lot over the years.

I wore a really cute outfit to the party, which I will post… by the end of the week. >.<

Is anybody else wanting to watch gossip girl season three RIGHT NOW! Not in like a month. *pout*

Here’s today’s outfit. It’s boring because the weather is exhausting, so I jazzed it up with Photo Booth, lolz.

The jewelery is my mothers. The top is Forever21, and the jeans are Hollister.

I miss my closet. Can’t wait to go home on Wednesday!

So, some things have been happening. And I guess that I built this blog in order to talk about life, so here goes.

Today is Friday. I haven’t talked to my dad since Tuesday. I’ve been staying with my mom, which I suppose means that seems quite normal for most father/daughter relationships. Not mine, however. My dad usually calls me about very three hours. He’d very protective and always wants to be in touch with me. So I was really concerned. Not only was he ignoring my calls, he was ignoring my mom’s calls and his girlfriend’s calls. Finally I texted him telling him that I was really worried, and that I was going to send our next door neighbor over to see what was going on. He called my mom minutes later, furious. He said that he had been in the emergency room. He’s okay, but very unhappy.

I should backtrack here… My dad is very upset with me for choosing to go to a school that is very far away, as opposed to ‘our’ dream school that was only about an hour away. He and I had always wanted me  to go to the closer school, and it wasn’t until the last minute that I changed my mind and realized that the farther school was the one for me. Both were great schools, my dad just had his heart set on the one I didn’t choose.

From then on, my dad took some time, but he accepted my decision. I thought. Lately he’s been really depressed, about the fact that I’m leaving. My dad has poured his life into me… I lived with him for 6 years, and he didn’t date, he didn’t go out, he just stayed at home and obsessed about  how best to raise me. And now that I’m leaving I feel like he doesn’t know what to do without me around.

I have all this guilt that I’m killing him for making the right choice for me, and that I’m being selfish by going. But isn’t that what children do? I won’t be gone forever.

So the last few weeks he’s been feeling sick, and not eating, and not not sleeping. I guess he wore himself down with all of that while I’ve been at my mom’s, and landed in the emergency room. He’s home now, but acting out. Instead of acting depressed, he gets angry. He lashes out at everyone; but mostly me.

So that’s my life right now. Guess I’m staying at my mom’s for a while. More later.
