Hey internet!
My god, it has been far too long! I feel like you all haven't had the exciting opportunity to read my  sartorial indulgences in quite a while now. That being said, never fear: Here are some pictures of my face and my body and clothing.
The other day, my mom and I stopped in Portland Maine because THE DREAM OF THE 90S IS ALSO ALIVE IN PORTLAND MAINE. This included eating falafel  and going to this manically organized vintage store downtown WHICH WAS UNREAL. If you're ever in Portland you need to go there because everything is perfect and not incredibly expensive. All of the vintage near me either smells like hamster pee (*cough* my local vintage store) or is 500 dollars so this was INCREDIBLY REFRESHING AND AWESOME. I came upon this dress and immediately was in luv.
This winter I went through a phase where I literally hated all of my clothes. I know this sounds super privileged but I was just really ~uninspired~ for whatever reason. The winter was really brutal so I pretty much just wore leggings and sweaters while listening to Neil Young. This winter I also spent absurd amounts of time complaining about I had no social life and how hard it is 2 b a gurl in da werld. Now that that period is over in my life I'm so happy n luv 2 liv and liv 2 luv!!!!! Just kidding (sort of).
In short, this dress made me not hate clothing again. I mean, its hard not to love clothing after having such "success".
As for aesthetics, I'm definitely moving towards the whole angry Grace Slick mod meets like really cheesy disco jumpsuits. Finding psychedelic prints and pairing them with platform heels and then proceeding to be angry is incredibly satisfying. I've been listening to a lot of Melody's Echo Chamber lately which has also influenced me to have more of a "60's underground" sort of vibe.
