I'm gonna need more hangers.

Scarf, French Connection

This scarf is fantastic, just fantastic. It was the last one for $20 and it was so worth it. K-Drama said it looks like a deep sea squid unraveled.

The harlequin effect I’m getting from this close up shot delights me greatly. Too bad my outfit did not flatter it enough. Sigh, way to go Deanne. Well this last weekend was Lunar New Year, and it totally drained me. I spent all my energy on my baby! Looking back though, I feel like I could’ve done more with the outfits. Thank you so much to everyone who went/participated. I can feel my fashion dreams slowly coming together because of you guys. I’ll do my best to make my next show even BETTER.

Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of online shopping. Two recent eBay buys, yet to be worn:

Lace tights, Leg Avenue; Fucshia cropped pants, Ann Taylor

Lace tights, Leg Avenue; Fucshia cropped pants, Ann Taylor

The pants were a little too short for my liking, but I’ll try them out without any adjustments. They’re rather baggy too, so the fit concerns me as well. But the COLOR, oh the color is exquisitely purple pink; the photo doesn’t even come close to its beauty.

Plaid zip dress, Wet Seal

Plaid zip dress, Wet Seal

I can’t recall if it was the plaid or the zipper down the middle that grabbed me, but I sure am a sucker for it. Who knew Wet Seal made cute clothes again? I remember abandoning it because everything was starting to get really cheap and poorly made. Well it’s still along those lines, but I managed to fall in love with some of their stuff again.

It gets me thinking: what makes something trashy vs. ‘chic’? Is it the designers? It’s remarkable how somethings like this plaid dress will scream “I’m super cute and fabulous” while other plaid items will hoot and holler obscenities. I don’t know, but I’ll be sitting on this idea for a few days.

BTW, I’ve decided I must stop buying trendy things. I think I do realize the definition now: trendy is stuff you are made to think you want RIGHT NOW, no matter how much you try to rationalize it. I have to think about the future, because right now, I don’t know where I’ll be working, what I’ll be doing, what kind of wardrobe I’ll need and all that. I need to stop buying things willy nilly, no matter what their quiky charms do to me.

Pink sweater, my mom's; Striped LS shirt, Gap; Grey slit skirt, Wish; Tights, Hue; Boots, Boutique 9 Nine West

Disregard the stupid look on my face; the point is obviously, my mom’s oversized, hot pink sweater. I found it so charming and have been debating with how to wear it for sometime now. I was going for a punk 80’s look to toughen up it up a bit.

There wasn’t a lot of time for picture taking though, which is sad, because this only kind of shows how much life this one garment has.

Chains galore

Chains galore

And I still want more chains. It just always feels like I’m missing something. I’ll eventually be satisfied right? Yeah, I don’t think so either.

The way to sleeves belled out and draped made me love this sweater all the more. The texturized stripes give it depth too. It has so much bubble gum/Kirby appeal, I wish I could wear it more often. Too bad it won’t be cold for long.

Speaking of pink, I bought another pair of pink pants on eBay. I hope they fit :X

These past few days, I have been distracted and unable to post. Here are 3 outfits I’ve managed to keep capture.

Ironically, those are each from a different week, ^^ being last week. You can see how it started to wan, then pick up again with this last look. I didn’t have time to accessorize. Anyway, my life is ridiculous right now. This week is going to be ridiculous. I have a fashion column to maintain, a fashion show in the works, and then you know, regular school on top of that. No wonder I keep looking to eBay and online stores for comfort. I almost bought more things on F21 than i needed, or wanted to. I bought another pink pair of pants off of eBay; i wonder if i’ll regreat that. Oh and some lace tights. I don’t know. I still feel like I need more. but I know binge shopping isn’t the answer and that I need to be more careful with my money. When I read this again, i’ll probably beat myself for writing something to rambly but this must be done! I’ve neglected it for too long already!
