13 January 2009

Oh god, an outfit post! It's the Apocalypse!!!1. So this is what I wore today. It looks much better in person, or maybe that was just in my head. I was perusing Charles Antase's S2009 collection, but was too sleepy / into anime to come up with a better interpretation. In real life you can notice the details of the jacket -- it's tailored so well, and the lace paneling on the back is kickass.

(helmut lang vintage boots, random shirt, jacket all gifted, the rest is vintage)

I like the petticoat, and decided I would wear it even if my dad was being passive aggressive about trying to make me change my clothes. "You know, I'll be around school for a few hours, IF YOU NEED ME TO GO AND GET SOMETHING FOR YOU *stares at skirt*" Also, I got a lot of comments such as "You look like a White Trash Fairy Godmother Jester" "Walking Cupcake?" etc etc today, which I enjoy because all of the genuine insults were coming from completely bland underclassmen who wear wrinkled khakis and actually do their homework so I am of course better than them in every why possible. I am above them.

I am not, however, above reading Linda Goodman's Love Signs. I would say it is helpful with my Mythology class, but then I would be lying.

The blog anniversary is tommorow! Are you excited? I didn't think it would make it this far -- and sometimes I feel like deleting it, but most of the time I am just really happy I'm such a dork who dreams about being a Japanese waif child alien who's best friend is a 12 year old and a gay boy and a Librarian Jew, who occasionally gets international press and pretty shoes.

Love you guys.

lovely lovely lovely. your outfit DOES kind of look like a cupcake, but i mean that in the best way-it is pretty wonderful.

happy anniversary! i'm very glad you haven't deleted it and i'm happy you're happy you're a dork (seeing as we all are).

The Petticoat is just adorable. I've tried wearing one, but I always think it looks bigger then it actually is and get self conscious. I do that with a lot of things I just realized.
I also love your tights, I thought they were those american apparel white/black ones, but then I noticed the white one is flowery, which is better!

You look incredibly beautiful, I have a feeling that's why your dad wanted you to change into something less appealing (Good dad).
Happy Anniversary. Please don't ever be tempted to delete, you are such a total inspiration.

Arabelle said...

dear anon a.k.a JAIME BALLESTEROS

I sit next to you when you sleep
I WILL STAB YOU WITH SEDATIVES IN HISTORY CLASS

Tavi said...

So which one am I? The gay boy, librarian jew, or 12 year old? I am actually all 3. Sorry, Abigail and Jaime BALLESTEROS (YES I KNOW YOUR REAL NAMES).

Anyway I like your boots and the black tights with floral tights. If I was your dad I would try to make you change too, but only so I could then steal your crinoline and construct a fluffy pillow fort out of it.

Tavi said...

Pretty Pirate said...

If you like linda goodman you should check out some of her other stuff. She wrote a huge book in prose about her life story. It's called goobers it's beautiful, sad and amazing. It's out of print now but you can find it online sometimes. I also really like star signs, it's a bit out there but interesting. She was a big fan of tesla, who is amazing to read about as well. I love your outfit, you are darling!

Patricia Villablanca said...

Nas said...

The outfit is awesome! And so are cupcakes. So, I don't know what they're all exactly getting at over in your high school :P

I think you're brilliant! Seriously. You are one of the wittiest, most vibrant bloggers I have EVER read! :) Case in poit: It's 11:30 in London right now and I am about to pass out because I'm A TAD jet-lagged and have a whole load of packing to get done, but I logged on to read your blog because I needed to see pretty things and read something that would make me smile; Fashion Pirates was the first thing I even thought of clicking in my Google reader!

"...most of the time I am just really happy I'm such a dork who dreams about being a Japanese waif child alien who's best friend is a 12 year old and a gay boy and a Librarian Jew, who occasionally gets international press and pretty shoes."

:) Sound like my hero! Take care <3

Happy Birthday for the 14th!

I stumbled across your blog just today, and I like it :]!

Noel said...

Happy birthday&anniversary, hun :]! I'm loving the outfit.

keira antoia rose said...

Lovely post. happy anniversary! Your attitude towards the underclassman is inspiring. You really do rock the outfit, despite how geeky that sounds, but it's true.

Charlotte said...

Happy aniversary!

fiercekitty said...

Linda Goodman's LOVE SIGNS was my bible back in the day.
i'm a geek, i'll admit it.

yea for two tone tights. i'm a sucker for the two-tone anything.

now i want a cupcake after that comment or a fluffy piece of crinoline. whatever comes first.

JuliAM said...

i'm glad you didnt' have your dad get you something else to wear. that skirt is cuteness magnified!

Soul Tanggg said...

Loverly outfit serious.

Rachie-Pie said...

Rachie-Pie said...

lucille said...

sO classe

Shannon (A beautiful Dream) said...

I bought Love Signs from a second hand shop for $3 the other day - I love it.

Your petticoat is whiter than the snow - adorable. But I have to say, I don't like two toned stockings. Everyone else seems to, I just think they look more bizarre than good.

HoneyBunny said...

I looooove the skirt! <333

La Fée said...

gorgeous! the skirt is perfect, and that jacket looks kick-ass :)

Vintage Tea said...

I love your outfit. You look amazing. When people diss you its only cause they're so jealous cause your cool and they're boring and shitty! Go you!
ha ha

Erin Dale said...

Your blog is Ah. May. Zing. As is your outfit. F*** all those stupid kids you go to school with-- you're right. You're way above them. High school is dumb, and one day it'll just be a little blip on the screen of life. You won't care what *they* thought years from now, so you're very smart to have figured that out already! You're awesome. :D

miky said...

eheheheh i like this^_^

punky said...

sooooo cute!!!

FashionLashion said...

you look great! cute outfit, no cupcake here, maybe a cake! you should model stuff for csneed.com

Jessica said...

I wore petticoats to school all the time, and still wear them when I go out, and "cupcake" and "circus runaway" were some of the fun things people said.

But who cares, when your above them all, does it really matter ?

agnes&lily said...

I love that skirt and the tights :)

How do you make the edges of the pics rounded? :)

chauss said...

i havent seen linda goodman's signs book in along time. she was a very , very interesting person... check out some of her others and ideas about being an avator...

katmag said...

where is that petty coat from?????? i have bought like 10million in hopes to achieve that shape!!!!!!! but they turn out looking terrible! please, im begging you tell me the brand! xo

Parisgirl2013 said...

You are very funny. All my asian friends are funny. Hm. That's interesting. I should do some geeky science project on this. Yes, I am very random

"I am just really happy I'm such a dork who dreams about being a Japanese waif child alien who's best friend is a 12 year old and a gay boy and a Librarian Jew, who occasionally gets international press and pretty shoes."

That phrase has perhaps made my entire month.
