I'm gonna need more hangers.

i love getting packages! nothing like meaningful mail.

shorts [borrowed]

spinelli has these great printed shorts handmade in ghana from her days studying abroad. african prints liberate me from my bohemian prejudices and i could use more of that.

my friends’ grandparents are dying and i’m trying to take pictures of myself in a typhoon.

1) Going out alone heightens ones experience on a strange and invigorating scale. I was either body-less or on an erasing catwalk. This was good and glamourous for me.

2) I belong in a city. I don’t just mean the fantastic shopping, which there was and I paddled around that pond a bit. It simply feeds me visually. The country or the suburbs can only ease my petal-ed soul so much.

3) Being in a foreign country, I often forget I’m American, more than I’d like to admit. I’ve still got small shoulders when trying to reach out to strangers, something I have little problems with back home.

4) Staying on budget is such a great feeling. I feel like spoiling myself the way one spoils a small white dog or a baby with adoring potential.

5) Magazines make me want to buy things. Ergo I should stop buying magazines. At least this time around. Applause please!

dress [gap | thrifted]

there’s something about this dress. and my hair being clean. and it being friday. mmmmm.

lately i’ve come to edit photos like a moment. because it’s clearly posed, i’m trying to recreate a certain mood, feeling, something. i like to think i’m being poetic…but i realize it can be heavy-handed sometimes.

i really miss blogging. must be the lack of boy in my life, heh.
