I love text T’s.
Especially ones that speak for you.
I am also loving Hedi Slimane’s photo diary. It is a taste of still life.

My outfit today was so boring, I felt a piece of my once 16 year old soul die. It wasn’t because I didn’t have time; I woke up right at 8 am and had a good 40 minutes to prepare. To my frustration, I failed to come up with anything not safe, which is the opposite of what I would have done in HS. The combinations I chose back then were daring and at times not that flattering, but they were fun and inspired by my curiosity with clothing composition.
Everyday is a battle to maintain the creative impulses lost to my academic life, however today was yet another sound defeat. Perhaps others would argue that it is just clothing and it’s no big deal, but not me. To me, it is my sanity and my controlled constant; it is my way of living a worthwhile existence that is in jeopardy of succumbing to the pressures of my university’s general style malaise. I am becoming less of a person than I once was; I am becoming the books I pour over, mechanized by the schedule that controls me. If I can not escape from the actions, I will do so wearing myself on my sleeves. I have to fight for my right to self expression everyday. And everyday counts.

I’ve been wanting shoes similar to these for awhile. And what luck!
Zippered Sandals, Forever 21 ($27.80)
Thank you Forever 21! My love for you has no bounds at this point. Granted, I would definitely opt for the Louboutin’s, however I am sans the funds, so thank god XXI is shameless in copping designs.
Now here’s the problem…red or black?

A gentle metallic wave
Would you prefer a wink or a punch of color?
Must try: jackets cropped right at the pant waist-will they give me length? Also, gun metal gray does not seem so taboo in this subdued hue.
Draping: flirty free/flirty fitted
Same belt worn cinched and loose, where can I find such versatility?
If you could wear the wind, would you run?
No sir, I would cat walk.
PS. Why don’t I own more strappy platforms? Why?
