the best of us find happiness in misery. good words, racoon eyes. good words.

Testing out the camera again. I can't find my tripods (i have 7, so this is pretty ridiculous) so i just put it on top of the printer. I quite like how it turned out. Also, this is "Tornado Outfit" #1 as deemed by one of my trusty commenters. Hi, trusty commenter!

crystal castles or something

testing out the camera

mistake picture o1

this is for jaime, who thinks i'm a hipster.

Glasses, Love is All Around in NYC when Maddy came to town. Shirt, gift.


The only bad thing about the camera is that it is sometimes too good. Obviously, my hair is pretty epic insane at the mo'. That is what 4 days, 13 hours of sleep and dry shampoo looks like. Also, don't forget the lucky packs on ebay! They are faaaahhhbulous.

Everytime I see those tights it upsets me, I have purchased 2 pairs (diffrent brands) and they were both too short. I want some that fit, dammit. You look cute in them!

Amelia said...

Your new camera is epic. I love the patterns and colors.

terren said...

pleeeeeeeease tell me what dry shampoo you use! i need me some.

Rachelle said...

Genius idea with the ebay lucky packs! I am hoping to bid, but I think I have positively immolated my credit card with online xmas shopping. You should do more of them in the new year - there must be lots of vintage-hungry (read: greedy) ppl like me out there!

Sammie said...

I love how the patterns clash, it's amazing. And those tights are as well, I have a similar pair from Target.

a.j (the dude who trimmed my hair at my last photoshoot who is AWESOME and FULL OF SPIFF) recommended to me bumble and bumble. it works wonders, all of their shampoos. most of the time i just use the surf hair product if I use ANYTHING though. typically i use shitty dollar store shampoos and surf hair when i feel like it.

the fact he used to work at bumble and bumble might have factored into the suggestion BUT i doubt it. xD'

The shades are a hoot! It's beyond me how you make this crazy outfit work, but you do. Great job.

Tavi said...

You know how jealz I am of those sunglasses, prostitute. I quite enjoy how the patterns are all different but similar colors. LOONY.
And your hair isn't greasy, it looks shiny and full and gorgeous. I need to get me some bumble and bumble, right now I use this shitty free shampoo that a plumber gave us T_T

Love the skirt. I have seriously been looking for one similar for ages. One of my friends has this floral skirt that is actually a netball skirt with all the pleats. It's so funky. That one reminds me of it.
