let's just do a photo diary

out of the blue, i thought i'd see how my blog was doing--as if someone might have updated it for me. i typed in the url on my browser and saw the photos from my last post "jesuit juliet" that feel to me, as if they were taken a year ago. dayum it has been hella long since i've written a blog post, or maybe reality just distorts...reality (?!?!). but now i seriously don't expect much consistency from myself when it comes to my blogspot, which is unfortunate. it's like taking care of your old stuffed animals in your room back home after going to college. maybe (?!?!). i will say that i've been writing pages on pages about alice in wonderland, social death, what reality means, what Facebook means, the ethnography of fashion blogging, yeah, let's talk about college. i love being able to learn and soaking in texts, words, someone's thoughts and identities established through prose and film. school is cool and nyu has shown me that liberty and what a true education can do and did not do for me in schooling ever before.

although most of my life as of recent has been me stringing words together on a laptop somewhere in the city, i have tried fairly consistently document my outfits. there is something about it that is exciting and familiar for me. i also just really want to share it because i have fun wearing what i wear, and i'd hope that maybe youll have fun seeing how i wore things. but clothes don't mean too much if you aren't actually living in your clothes, so here's a photo diary, or maybe let's call it a montage of how i wore my language of life in this so called world.

one of my favorite outfits. i felt so happy in this get up. bright orange, comfortable (kid's) dress (with pockets), a button down, a button down with polka dots, tights, a relevant bouffant, scissor brooch, brooch on quirky location of shirt--this is discoveries and dreams in a look for me!

more photos i took of kate nash at the wsn highlighter. she is a great storyteller and puts on a smashing, honest and personal concert--how they should be. also take a moment to appreciate those bats on her dress. kick ass-ery at its finest

one of my buddies asked me to prom! it's not what it sounds like, in many more ways than one. it was for a fabulous group of nyu admissions ambassadors and i was asked by a dashing gay ginger boy and you have no idea how happy i was when he texted me. i felt like i wouldve said yes if his text asked me to marry him. 

The strap part of the dress was too long for my short body/torso/etc. so I safety pinned the straps to shorten the length. But who wants to really show their safety pin boo boo out in the open. I had dark blue earrings I had been itching to incorporate into my outfits and I finally found their moment. So there's a trick for you--earrings for buttons and brooches! Instant DIY done deal.

Song of the moment

also check out this amazing moodboard by the le sigh--an indie girl blog i write for! yes! more news to tell you that is relevant. the le sigh! we all sigh, we all breathe, we all love ladies and know that art is worth it so visit and browse

oh oh, i also want to tell you that i'm working on a piece of nonfiction writing that i can't wait to share with you soon. :) it will definitely--maybe--be my favorite piece i wrote this year, actually i dont know about the latter half of that sentence, but i will definitely be excite to share it. brace yourselves for a few days. in the mean time, i am on twitter and tumblr pretty regularly. hohoho, boy, do i love this city and this life.

Beautiful shots, the last one of Kate Nash has this wonderful intensity to it.
