Two weeks ago I went to ~Williamsburg~ to visit Bryce, who is the coolest Skate Witch around. It was super awesome. I managed to score sum ~kewl pieces~ at Beacon's and Buffalo Exchange. Beacon's Closet is really overwhelming and I almost turned into a potato for like the 80th time in my life (most potato experiences revolve around me talking to guys. I am realllyyy unsuccessful in the hawt boyz department, LET ME TELL YA).
Anyways, I got this skirt and immediately I was in some sort of iridescence induced trance. To bring tumblr into this, I would like to point out that is is very "Seapunk Business Casual."
FOLLOW 4 PASTEL GRUNGE.
I also am realizing that I can't even talk to the Internet anymore without making a huge fool of myself. oops.
This outfit was kind of created to pay homage to tumblr. I have almost no social life so lately I have resulted to spending large amounts of time being an Internet troll. I also kind of wanted to tie in the ideas of getting dress as a social construct. I know I have said this dozens of times but sometimes it is genuinely difficult to get dressed.
This past week I was really worried about being "pretty" What does "pretty" even mean? We dress to impress certain groups of people, we put on masks. I wanted to look pretty because I was uncomfortable with myself. I'm getting a little tired of people lecturing me on how to dress. Honestly, I don't really like how "getting a date to prom" will be easier if I just start dressing conventionally pretty. I'm just a sarcastic whippersnapper. NO 1 UNDERSTANDS WUT ITZ LIKE 2 B ME. I tried that all of this week and it made me feel uncomfortable. I felt self conscious.
High School does things to ya I guess.
Hopefully I can "Live Through This".

Do You Ever Look Back?



"Farm Maiden Hands"

Dress: Vintage (Buffalo Exchange). Sweater: Vintage (my mother's from ireland). Shoes: Vintage Doc Martens from Etsy. Tights: Target. Belt: Target. Sunglasses: Found in a box in my attic. Pins and Ring: Flea Market. Necklace: Gift from my kewl womyn friend Anna 

To start out this fine post on my kewl weblog I probably should explain my whereabouts. To keep it short, I am currently a junior in highschool which means I'm in a current state of "LOLOL WUT SOCIAL LYF HAHAAHAA SKEWL WERK.  APUSH ALL DAY LONG! COLLEGE. THINKIN BOUT KUTE HIGH SKEWL BOYZ BECAUSE I AM A HORMONAL MESS. TUMBLR."
ANYWAYZ. Latley I've been inspired by things other than fashion, this is partially because I was kind of disapointed by the designers I generally look up to. I would tell you there names but I'm a KEWL FASHUN BLOGGER WHO IZ 2 SCARED TO REVEAL HER OPINIONS CUZ MB I WON'T GET MORE "dope swag" from brands. Instead I've taken inspiration by music and "art". I've been on a really weird music kick latley: Lots of dream pop mixed with Neil Young  and Crazy Horse and Jefferson Airplane. This has made feel the need to dress like a really sassy rug. I've been really obsessed with paisley and very soft shapes.
The other day, to add to my ~fall vibes~ I got a 70's mom bob. Basically the best thing that has happened to my hair since I got my first pixie cut when I was 13
I've also been focusing a lot of energy in turning my room into an installation. I've mentioned before that I am by no means a conventional artist so instead I've been currating a space that is more of three dimensional representation of my aesthetic.

The main wall in my bedroom. The tapestry was made by my great great aunt when I was an infant. On the far left is my #dopeswag machete that I bought on my backpacking trip to SVG
