I'm gonna need more hangers.

At my university, our dorms are called “colleges,” and certain days out of the year, we celebrate our college’s individuality with a theme. There’s also drinking involved, but that’s beside the point. A few of our themes have been Will Smith and Oil Kings/Texas Queens. I think I’ve been waiting all year for Kindergarden Day.

The skirt…I love this skirt. Got it at the Tommy Hilfiger store at the outlet for $12! Yainorite? I haven’t bought anything during lent (yes, I did make it) and afterwords, didn’t really splurge at all. Anyways, back to raving about this skirt. It reminds me of Prada SS08, the last collection by Miuccia that I ever really liked.

It’s pretty uncanny and I’m pretty freakin lucky I scored this in my size. Love it so much. It’s an ideal ladylike summery skirt; perfect for picnics. Another piece I would consider a go-to piece for instant style. Don’t you love it when you know your relationship with something newly bought is going to go so well? Ah la amor de ropas.

It’s too bad you can’t see the shoes well in the grass up there. They’re fantastic. I got them when K-Drama and I went to the outlet (Houston Premium Outlets that is) for $30!! It was between them and a pair with cupcakes all over. I already have a pair of printed ones, plus all these tweens were clamoring over the cupcakes. These spoke to me. They’re glittery, they’re freaking gold! Yeah, of course I said yes. I got him a pair too, a late b-day pressie.

The handsome chocolate leather type texture suits him perfectly BUT, there was this other high tops pair that was white with gold zipper detail, men’s size ONLY and he wouldn’t go for them. :( tragic, they were only $20. OH wellllll. I win otherwise though.

Oh yeah, that’s a dinosaur moon bounce behind me btw.

I’ve been wanting to wear a bow this huge for awhile now. I’m still very pleased with the way my idea to use my scarf for a bow materliazed perfectly into this headpiece confection that cost me nothing. I wore it for the Candyland study break too. I love it I love it. I’m gonna try to wear any other chance I get now. It delights me greatly.

As for the bracelets, I did have more, but I chose to hold back a bit. It was humid and gross outside. Other complaints: my hair is getting dull/styleless and looking at Tavi’s new Mia Farrow cut and Brooke’s Tao Okamoto style bob, I’m itching for a shorter dud myself. Just gotta hang on a little longer for the summer…

Ah, I just love the vibrance of that day, though I felt I still could’ve gone to greater heights, more more more. But you know I always feel that way. I want another dress up day like this. Am I asking for too much?

Long over due yes I know, but better later than never. Currently I’m procrastinating, but I have to do this. It’s been like ages.

It was windy that day. And cold. I should’ve worn more layers, but I couldn’t think of anymore. Lol. Strangely, that day, I noticed Brooke and I both had something similar in mind: the neon on grey look, except that I added the tights. Great minds think alike?

I feel like no matter what I do, I am never satisfied. I am constantly taunted by things that could be and various dreams that I’m chasing. It could be the night talking (I get very chatty and inspired at night)but I’ve just been thinking a lot again and I can’t seem to write fast enough, or legibly for that matter.

I’m just sitting and pondering on the mistakes of my past semesters and all the god damn time I waste dilly dallying in other stuff that doesn’t pertain to anything that I’m doing now. I guess it’s not wasted time really…my dreams sort of changed. But was doing what I did really what I wanted to do? I don’t know. I don’t think so. But that’s a tricky subject: if you convince yourself you want something, can you really consider it to be your dream? “It’s all in the mind, you know.”

As for my outfit, well, I was just thinking about how uninspired I’ve been lately and maybe that’s my fault. I sort of threw this on after many tries, again frustrated that I had no idea what I was going for. It all ends up being too safe. I keep waiting for it to just come to me, but I realized that it doesn’t work that way if I don’t feed my imagination what it needs. In high school, I thrived on Teen Vogue and Fruits. Maybe others would lend a hand but…those two are the ones that come to mind first. Inspiration is vital. I need it. I can’t go on without it. I’ve been starving all this time, creatively anorexic in a way.

Whoa…melodramatic much Deanne? Anyway, seriously though, I’m just having a hard time getting my style berrings straight. I don’t know what I’m becoming, what my style is turning into, where it’s going but I don’t feel like it’s enough.
