oh helllllo. i thought i'd make a quick outfit post. i got to school early with all my homework done (a novel concept!) so i thought i'd show you what i'm wearing.
a while back Solanah posted something about hating it when people go to the grocery store in sweatpants. unfortunately, lots of people took offense to this and attacked her for it. i think it was a GREAT post because it's something that is one of my biggest pet peeves. i'm a graduate student, but i've noticed the large number of undergrads (though i'm sure other grad students do it too) who show up to school in their pjs. i think that this is absolutely ridiculous! even when i was a lazy undergrad, i NEVER didn't go to school with at least jeans on (even in my 2002-2003 super punk rock phase that was left over from high school). back then i kind of just wanted to be "one of the guys"... my uniform was usually a pair of dark denim jeans, chucks, and a band tshirt i cut up in some way. i had short black hair that was spikey in the back. i always had on black eyeliner and usually a bare lip.
me, my freshman year of college.
as i've gotten older, i have gotten far more girly. i always shopped at goodwill and salvation army as a teen, but as i've gotten older i've come to appreciate vintage clothing even more. i started getting really into rockabilly when i was about 20.
me at 20.
now, i buy mostly vintage clothing. today's outfit is a vintage swirl dress that i got on ebay (for a ridiculously low price), nude backseam tights, a crinoline, cute vintage inspired shoes, and victory rolls. though i am at school right now, i am going out to dinner with a friend after. not that my outfit would probably differ much even if i wasn't going out to dinner.
also, i can NOT recommend enough the new MAC wonder woman lipstick in russian red
it is a beautiful shade of a true red, and is perfect for summer!
