A few things I want

I haven’t finished the book I was going to review today, as… I’m not in a reading mood right now. That schedule I made up for the blog? Yeah… I may not follow it. I still want to post about all those things, but I’m feeling more and more like I should mix it up and post whatever I feel like posting that day. Β And only resort to the schedule when I don’t feel like posting anything.

So to make up for not actually having finished the book today to review it, I’m going to do a fashion post. Because I’ve suddenly become really interested in fashion.

Would you believe that growing up, I always had the smallest amount of clothing and shoes in my family? There’s just something wrong with that. Brothers shouldn’t have more clothes. Sadly, it’s still true. But I’m trying to rectify that.

So one of the people I stalk on Formspring asked everyone “what are the four words that describe your style/taste?” and I answered “I never wear pants.” (Which is so very true.) But then I was thinking about it, and I’d probably be romantic, girly, quirky, and… vintage? That last one… I dunno. Maybe Goodwill would be a good word for my style, since half my wardrobe is from that store. Anyway. These are a few things that I really, really love.

(Clarification: I’d also put panels under the lace. No see-through stuff, thanksverymuch.)

I really wish I could see the front of that dress.

Seriously. I love her style.

Okay. That’s the end of her.

A Rainy Day

(Oh em gee, pants! The thing isn’t that I would never wear jeans, I just don’t think they flatter my body. Maybe once I’ve lost some weight and/or gotten fit, I’ll buy a pair of jeans again. Until then, though, I’ll stick with dresses and skirts. And heels. Lots of heels.)

And I really like this wallpaper. I want it to be cloth. That is made into a dress. For me.

And I could have taken a picture of my outfit today, but I’m too lazy. So instead, here’s a picture of how very, very green my eyeshadow makes my eyes.

I looooove it. πŸ˜€


P.S. I’ll try to get that book done and reviewed by Thursday.

    You have very pretty eyes.

    I`ve also always admired your style. Hopefully, if I continue to follow your blog, your awesome fashion sense will rub off on me.

    My mom tells me that I dress like a homeless person and gets annoyed whenever I walk out of the house with sweats. I guess that`s because I`m too busy concentrating on classes to care about what I wear to college. Since I haven`t gone shopping in a long time, most of my clothes are 5+ years old and are falling apart. Japan is a very fashion-conscious country, so I often stand out πŸ˜›

      Maybe it will. πŸ˜€ I used to do that- go out of the house not caring what I wore- but then I realized how much better I always feel when I dress up. So I decided to not wear jeans for a week and see how I felt… and since that week, I haven’t worn pants with the exception of working out. πŸ˜‰

      And it’s harder when you’ve got school to deal with, and you haven’t gone shopping in a long time. Y’know. Education should come before fashion. πŸ˜€

    So, I’ve always had a love for fashion, but have had a very hard time finding the fashion that I love the most. I was always torn between jeans and t-shirt casual, dark goth, and 50’s retro. Finally I’ve chosen 50’s retro (housewife version). It encompasses many different things about me and the darker side of me has mellowed out a bit. So, I’m simply IN LOVE with the 3rd and 4th Zooey pictures for the outfits and because I love Zooey.

    As for following your schedule of posts, I think, personally, that you should have like 3 or 4 things that you know for sure you want to post about each week and then do them on whatever day you want to. That leaves the other days open for whatever you feel like.

    And that wallpaper…

    Soooooooo pretty! I could see that on a cute little skirt or dress… probably more so on a skirt though.

      I know what you mean! I always wanted to be three different styles at once. It’s easier if you just find the style that flatters your body the most- for me, it’s anything belted or with a natural waist. So mostly fifties, girly, vintage styles. And once we go shopping a bit, maybe we can mix up styles and figure it out. πŸ˜€

      Well, I want to post all of the things on my schedule, I think I’ll just keep a few days set- like WWC Mondays- and then post everything else when I feel like posting it. πŸ˜€

      Isn’t it pretty? I could see it in a sort of… something like this:

      Or as a skirt.
