that necklace reminds me of the mummy, in a pimp, 80's way.
alright, first off my internet connection is a peace of shit, and my camera is also made of fail. let me just say that right now, and I apologize for the foul language, but dfdkdjshfsdf. You know how long it took to actually finish this post? Too long. TOO. LONG.
The sweater I'm wearing; to you recognize it? Yes, it's one of the sweaters I'm selling off. It's actually so much more amazing than I originally thought; I've already got a lot of requests as to where to buy them. Woohoo. I only have three or four, so I'll put two of them up and sell two locally. The necklaces I wore today are my usual gear: antique
I'm also going to put up the jacket set I talked about last post up for sale as well; I just don't think I can pull it off, but I'm confident someone else can. Also, in response to Zoe's 'perfect boots', I disagree:
Ohwut. I've got plain white boots too, but the zipper is busted. A lot of my favorite shoes tend to be in abysmal condition, I've got to do something about it. I have to get new soles for the Ralph Lauren buckle boots and my oxford pumps I got for $20 bucks last month. Hmmmm.
Also, I just want to tell you a little about a book I got for my birthday; it's all about Japan's fashion (the book is called "Style Deficit Disorder") and it's an advanced copy and I absolutely love it. Thanks, Toady. It delves into the start and development of Harajuku and fashion in Tokyo in general, with interviews and stories about the top designers in Japan and (my favorite) pictures and collages of street fashion in Harajuku. I promise to scan some of the amazing pictures for you guys sometime this week, but until then, I just wanted to introduce you to one of my favorite designers I discovered because of the book:
Hysteric Glamour. Oh my god, even the name is amazing. Hysteric Glamour is a quintessential Japanese fashion brand. The basis and inspiration is American culture (primarily the 60's and later), but what makes it what it is is the Japanese twist on everything. The line is primarily t-shirts and isn't sold in the U.S (notice the tears in my eyes), but the second it is I'm on it like white on rice.
I've got midterms and two tests I'm going to crash and burn and then crash and burn again in tommorow, so I'm going to cram until I sleep tonight. I don't want to turn into Toady, after all:
REMEMBER ABIGAIL, I HAVE THE INCRIMINATING EVIDENCE OF YOUR EGO. REMEMBER, REMEMBER~~.
Anyway. Point and laugh at her, she deserves it. xD The test was on the Bill of Rights. Good god, woman. If you don't remember the founders of the constitution at least remember to WRITE YOUR NAME.
