11 February 2009

My secret lover Anon (secret loverrr~ thats what u r~) kindly requested that I bestow upon you all my "epicness" in outfits. Truth be told mostly all I've been wearing was black, lace, sheer, and red, in any which order and amount.

The tights are from Elizabeth the Epic from when I visited her at her office. They are fascinating and I stared at them for most of the day. They remind me of spiderwebs up close. Wearing them with my crinoline from ebay, prada skirt, lace top my mom made, hanes t-shirt, and my favorite cardigan.

I am not tubby it's the skirt not being tucked in right / shirt not being tucked in right shut up it was nicer before >>

I took these pictures at the public library I go to to attempt to study / make fun of Abigail when she's working. Can you spot my Jew? She's in plaid.

And now I must return to SLEEPING and Dear School Gang Leader and Kaichou wa Maid Sama! I am so into manga I may just force you all into reading my recommendations, which would consist of pretty bishounen boys and shows about old men and bread and alien Jimi Hendrix. Mmm, alien rock stars.

I love the texture of the shirt and tights. The cardigan reminds me of little red riding hood in the best possible way.

AFitz said...

Love it. Love it all. You really can do no wrong.

Fashion Fille said...

i'm obsessed with the crinoline, i've been looking for one to wear under ALLLLL my skirts. is yours vintage?

Arabelle said...

bobb said...

I'm using my Google account instead of just posting under my name. A little off topic here, but I saw your Twitter about Skip James. I actually heard "Devil Got My Woman" today on the archive of Dick Spottswood's show on WAMU out of Washington.

James was an amazing artist. I particularly like "I'm So Glad" and " 20-20 Blues" (where he plays piano instead of guitar. I like the recordings he made for Paramount in the early 1930's (which are about the rarest prewar blues records) better then I do the recordings he made after his rediscovery in the 1960's. Enough rambling here lol. You certainly have great taste!

diane said...

really cute. it's sort of rockabilly meets librarian. wait, i think that's just the books everywhere.

Nicole said...

love the read coat,and everything about the outfit reminds me of an upgraded version of little red riding hood..but hopefully you're not completely oblivious to realize that a wolf is pretending to be your grandma cause you're too valuable to the fashion-blogging community to get eaten by a wolf :]

p.s. Also, in case you weren't aware, you're featured in the March issue of Teen Vogue.

Here’s a list of tools you will need to start: Jewelers’ pandora jewellery wire cutters - If you can only afford one pair, get memory wire shears. pandora charms These are designed to make clean cuts on tough memory wire, so can also be used for pandora charms uk softer wires. Chain-nose pliers sometimes called cheap pandora charms needle-nose pliers – Very versatile for picking up and grasping small items, pandora charms sale bending eye pins, closing jumps rings, even closing crimp beads. discount pandora charms Round-nose pliers – Used for creating loops on beaded head and eye pins. Can also be used for winding your own jump rings and as the second pliers you’cheap pandora ll need for closing jump rings. Optional pliers – Wire-looping pliers which have several graduated circumferences to allow you to form perfectly uniform jump rings and loops in place of the pandora discount uk round-nose pliers mentioned above. Crimping pliers which have little notches to allow you to both flatten a crimp bead and then bend it to form a rounded finished look instead of the flat crimp you pandora uk get using the chain-nose pliers. As for materials, I recommend some assortment packs of beads in coordinating colors, some decorative metal spacers, seed beads in both silver and gold These can serve as spacers and beautifully set off pandora sale your other beads., tube-shaped crimp beads Buy the best you can find – these are what hold it all together!, head and eye pins. Other than that, let your choice of project be your guide. You might want some silver or pewter charms.
