i made this necklace awhile ago; i can’t be fucked to go find the link to my DIY page. (ed: here, you lazy bitch) the clasp is broken in the back so i just used a safety pin. the shoes…i wouldn’t normally buy this kind of sandal, probably because it’s a kitten heel. it’s a gift from a friend i met in Japan, who lives in Nanjing, China. whenever i wear them, i feel like i’m with her, just borrowing her shoes and i’d just give them back tomorrow. i miss her.

it wasn’t until after i put this on that i realized it reminded me of THAT Marc Jacobs SS 2009 show. i’m missing the obi. meh, it’s not like i was trying to recreate the look; it just happened to be this way. i tried on my little hat, but it felt too costume-y. looking back, was it really too much? or do i just need to wear a different hat?

also, without realizing it, we tried to recreate this scene, where i’m standing on a chair. genius is connected in that way; some themes are meant to thread people, not ideas.

lately, i’ve been feeling empowered. i think it translates into the need to tuck in my shirt. also, i’ve been experimenting more with a slightly more dandy boyish take on my girlish wear. i’m in love with collared shirts and a nice pair of slim pants.

my mother and i love ferragamo! i have a small collection of purses, but they were all gifts from her. we’re big ebay ppl, i highly recommend it, let me know if you need tips. i also have 3 pairs of  vara pumps at home that never see the school grounds. i’m not one who usually saves pieces for special occasions, but these items, they too precious. what is special to you in this way?

i also recently finally defined my style in one of those three word summaries: playfully put together. ah so satisfying to know oneself! can you define your style in 3 words?

Yeah that’s right, this girl. I didn’t wear this outfit of course, do you think I’m stupid?

Ah it was EPIC. EPIC. The very best part, besides them playing all the good songs to make me feel 13 again, was the encore. Travis Barker’s platform transformed into a floating fortress and he became the drum diety that he is, tearing up the place with those lightning bolts. Beautiful. I totally jizzed in my pants.

My dad goes to a lot of Comp Sci conventions and he often brings back goodies. This was a Microsoft promotional puzzle, but I saw instant necklace potential in the poly methyl methacrylate (mahahha nerd speak). However, you can’t just glue the little beasties together; you have to do some plastic welding. Here’s a vid that explains it all and more.

I ordered some acrylic cement from Rideout Plastics, which had the cheapest shipping ($7.95) I could find for the product and a brush. I can see why it’s so much though, they do take very good care of the chemicals.

Shipping took forever (more like a week) but it was worth it. The stuff gets pretty messy and dries SUPER fast. Like the vid said, it only sticks to plastics, though contact with clothing is annoying (I wore my lab coat, teehee). I goofed a bit from from the messiness, but it’s hardly noticable when worn.

For now, I’ve tied a cord around the top hooks cause I couldn’t wait to wear it, it’s so boss. I still need to drill holes for a chain/ribbon, then it will be complete!
