lookin like a new wave nun

It's my 18th birthday today you guys!!!! This is a scheduled post because I am (hopefully) out doing something productive and cool. Or I am sleeping.

It is also...the blog's 3 year anniversary. Thank you for sticking around for so long, newcomers and old friends. Through the random hiatuses and my long winded rants, I just wanna know my life wouldn't be the same without this blog and the people I've met through it. Thank you for everything. ♥ I've made the greatest friends from this blog, and I'm constantly making new friends. But I can always use more friends and new blog reads. So please leave a comment and I'd like to check out your own blogs too. :) Payin' it forward! I wanna see new blogs on my blogroll.

This is what I wore Tuesday. I woke up early to go do stuff outside my house but I got side tracked by the k-drama Secret Garden and was so consumed with rage at the main character being a huge creep and potential rapist that I didn't go out at all. (HE IS SO CREEPY I HATE HIM NO ONE CAN TELL ME DIFFERENTLY) (Ha I bet Luxirare is shaking her head at me right now. Don't judge me for my koreaboo habits!!)


wednesday addams on tuesday

Anyway yeah. I was feelin a moody dominatrix witch vibe but it ended up being a "New Wave Nun" look as my parents describe it. Whatever works I guess I don't know blahhhhh. Here is a death stare to silence any criticism of my outfit/life/choices.

More photos after the cut, along with clothing credits. Go!

Meh it looks better irl, colors wise. Also it is not shapeless blackness!! It is super witchy and rad I swear. I am wearing the green velvet maxi skirt with a plain black thermal and a black robe over it, undeaneath a harness from Angie. This is my dining room for those who are curious. I used to take a lot of outfit photos in here if you stalk my archives and recognize it. Also this is my wooden parrot. He's kinda quiet.

I love dressing up as a character deliberately, I'm getting back into it after many humdrum days of dressing for convenience. NO MORE! BACK TO FREAKING PEOPLE OUT WITH HOW WEIRD I LOOK! MY FAVORITE THING!!!! Do I have the instinctual urge to want to dress up to be 'pretty'? Yeah sometimes. I wouldn't have so much makeup if I didn't I guess. But it's much more fun to just dress up like i'm a character in a story. A weird, gloomy depressing character who talks to a wooden parrot and has purple pigtails and can put a spell on you with a glare. Anyone who dares defy me will suffer the consequences.


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. HA.

P.S Omg I'm dying to show you guys proper photos of my new glasses. THEY ARE SO PERFECT, YOU WILL DIE!!!

Clea said...

Hey, happy birthday! I kind of love your living room. And this outfit--the drapeyness of the different pieces works so well, and I don't always like bows on headbands, but that headband kills it.

Taj said...

Yajaira said...

HeebieJeebieJaya said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Man, I can't believe your only 18 years old -- you're making me feel like an old lady! Which I guess isn't horrible -- they dress better than any other age group.

Love the outfit!

Kerry said...

I have to agree with your parents! Though I find your nunliness admirable! (nunliness?) I have been reading your blog since the birth of my own blog and would be so happy if you checked mine out! Your posts are always so thought provoking and controversial! You and Tavi both inspired me to become a feminist. I never really post about my feminism on my blog but I hope to start. That's what blogs are for right? A place to record your thoughts!
I've recently purchased a lot of books on feminism in hope that I might educate myself a bit more on the subject.(I only became a feminist recently.) If you have any recommendations please share. I hope I get to know you!

Happy Bithday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Haaaaaaapy Bithday to Arabelle etc etc

Your dining room is so rad. These photos look like creepy film stills <3

Someday I want my death stare to be as good as yours. I must keep praticing in the mirror..

Savannah Burton said...

Your hair is so great! Thank you for commenting on my blog. I kind of had a heart attack. I'm trying to behave negligently, but am obviously failing miserably. !

-Savannah

(meh, okay, time for me to abandon all attempts at behaving professionally! omiga,omiga,omigaaa!This is a 14 year old's dream come true!)

SuperDuper said...

if the atomsphere of 'secret garden' wasnt so cute and lovey dovey, i would also say the main dude character is a rapist who never had the love of his parents. Plot twists of korean dramas are just sooooo funny, i thought the two main characters were gonna be siblings! haha. oh and happy birthday, if it werent for your existence i would have only seen myself as 'THE WEIRD GIRL WHO LIKES DRAMAS '

Marlena said...

Happy Birthday!! <3

I'm loving this new wave nun look ;D
Your hair looks totally amazing here too! *.*

Sarah said...

XRONIA POLLA (that's Happy Bday in Greek)
may all of your dreams come true and hopefully one day, you'll find yourself being a totally cool 70 year old lady with purple hair and still, the greatest style EVER :D (ok and a cat because if you don't have a cat you are not a proper old lady. and definitely a set of paisley curtains)

:} lots of love :}
