i don't want your big guns, i want brownie mix god dammit

THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID.

My program went to a military base today and we played with robots and nonlethal weapons. I'm a regular assassin, yes I am. It's actually more boring than it sounds because the younger kids kept on pointing the sniper rifles at me.

Anyway, here's what I wore today. I've been watching angsty teenage rebellion movies too much, I swear to god. I only watch Robocop for the anarchists, I was never really into the clothes until now. And as for shopping... I need a purple tutu so bad I'm willing to spend all off my job money on the perfect one. Alright, not to that extent but 90% of it.

I was thinking of getting a two-piece crinoline skirt at one of the Visual-K stores online, or maybe a sex store but then I'd have to explain to my parents why they're getting a package from a sex store and that would be just awkward.

Example of awkward conversation:

Me: Hey dad can I get a tutu online? I'll give you the money to put into my paypal.
Dad: Sure, where are you buying it from?
Me: Uhm... Lingerie Diva......
Dad: So you've decided to become a stripper?

Even though these were a bargain pair of Cheap Mondays at the sample sale they're too long for me at 28/34 inseam and so the crotch is a bit odd. I'll probably sell them off on ebay with a bunch of other stuff in August when I have the time / lack of things to do.

Speaking of Velvet Undereground.... Mark Schwartz emailed me and I'm surprised I didn't know about his work earlier. Mark was a friend of Andy Warhol and his influence is evident in the artwork Schwartz creates, but Mark makes his own individual style. I'd fancy seeing more of his shoe designs as much as his paintings. Which reminds me, I really really want more shoes.

How wicked would it be to own thoses shoes? They remind me of Dries, but more whispy and dreamy. I am no Jane (Sea of Shoes) but damn if it wouldn't be cool to have these shoes realized...and into my closet.

I have brownies to eat. Kinda dry, fudgy ones but I like those best anyway. Have a great day my friends.

I like the first outfit. It'd be a funny conversation with your parents if you did buy the skirt at a sex store. Funny to laugh at when your older.
Anyways, your so lucky you have brownies, I feel like some now.

you look so angsty, god. next i bet you're going to fall for a troubled rebel from the wrong side of the tracks, and learn how to break-dance, or something. hey, you wanna go to the met this week? lately i've been feeling culture-less, so i wanna go and spend all day looking at tombs and old pictures of jesus. and it's suggested donation, so you only gotta pay to get there.

i don't wanna go to the met, check if hi5 has anything going on. I NEED TO GO SHOPPING JEW. LIKE YESTERDAY.

don't talk about breakdancing with me either, everyone talks about it in school. probably why i'm all angsty lookin.

Jillian said...

holy coolness!

Wendy said...

The jeans are wicked cool. Are the shoes a new purchase? Cause they rule so much.

Belle said...

wendyyyyy! no, not really. i just haven't worn them so much. today was their blog debut, methinks. hurt like hell after a day of standing up, they have an odd curved heel.

Stephanie said...

Ok so I haven't actually ordered the camera yet.... but I will do it tomorrow! Or Wednesday! Or something!

I've got some brownies too which I'll be eating with my friends tomorrow...unfortunately to make up for the taste of certain special ingredients they added like 4 extra cups of sugar and caramel and crap. But I think it'll be worth it.. XD

I pretty much hate jeans. I don't wear them. I hate how they look. But, something is going on with those jeans because I kind of really really like them. I don't knwo what it is! Maybe it's the lovely patchworkiness? I actualy think it's the entire outfit. It's put together well. You could've just done a plain shirt and some boring shoes... but, you didn't! I love the entire outfit! =)

Those jeans rule.

detron said...

ohlala..those patch work jeans are to die for i want some ..if you sell them on ebay contact me right away ....
and the skirt idea is wonderful..the convincing the parents situation would be alittle not so wonderful,in my perception of course.

Isabel said...

Those Cheap Mondays are fanfuckingtastic. i loves them. I have two pairs of CMs and both were 34" inseams that I hemmed - so thankyou for inadvertently answering my question about why the crotch on mine looked funny.

Mimi said...

Those jeans are AWESOME! :D
