Cotton candy sky

The view from my window at 6am.

blog post about a blog that's already so meta it can't even handle itself

Today will be Day 364 of The Lawrence & Julie & Julia Project, which means one of my favorite blogs is almost dead.

BUT it will live on for those who have not been following it for the past year.

Read about how it started.
And then read the entire thing, from the beginning. This guy is hilarious, offensive, crazy, awesome, and I love him and the entertainment he provides me.

You will not be sorry.
You will only be sad that it took you 364 days to discover his genius.

love and right triangles,

rainbow baubles

shirt, Forever 21
tank, freebie
shorts, thrifted/diy
necklace, diy
watch, gift
belt, thrifted
shoes, H&M

This outfit is a little bit crazy, but it is also a lotta bit fun, and today was a particularly gross cloudy semi-rainy day so the LottaFun factor was mucho necessary!

Tying blouses at the front is my new favorite thing to do. Blouses are the new blazer. But also I need to rebuild my entire blazer collection because I decided that 70% of the ones I had last year are blech. 

Upcoming posts you can look forward to:
-more sewing and diy! tutorials included!
-my thoughts on menswear (and my favorite male fashion icon)
-limited fashion week coverage!
-preview of sketches of my minicollection for the school fashion show

Things in life I am looking forward to:
-the weekend

you're a disco ball

pants, Zara
boots, thrifted

This shirt was craycray today, considering I spent six hours of my day working at the school cafe surrounded by coffee and muffins and chipotle mayo and chicken tikka masala. But it was also great.
I effing hate dress code, so I gotta dress it up some how!

In other news, I'm SO excited for fall TV!
Ringer is great, I highly recommend. Sarah Michelle Gellar is the BOMB.
And Community premieres tomorrow! If you haven't seen this play please!

red red blue blue black black

Flash makes photos INSANEEEE

dress, Urban Outfitters
shirt, thrifted
boots, Marshall's
watch, gift

When I was interning at Seventeen this summer, I got to go on a couple photoshoots to assist the stylist, which was awesome. One of the stylists dressed a girl in this color combination - black, red red and bright cobalt, and it was awesome. I always have the hardest time pairing colors with red, and I always end up wearing it with something lame like black or leopard print or white.
Red + orange = good sometimes, but other times not enough contrast
Red + pink = good sometimes, but other times too Valentine's day
Red + yellow = good sometimes, or you look like Ketchup and Mustard/Ronald McDonald
Red + green = Christmas
Red + blue = depends.
Red + purple = Red Hat Society old ladies

See what I mean? I just can never pair it with anything good.

How do you wear red?

6 foot 7 foot 8 foot bunch

dress, H&M
bra, Target
boots, thrifted
blazer, thrifted
watch, gift
necklace, selfmade
belt, stolen from mom
bag, freebie (H&M)

It's finally boots season! It's unbelievably chilly here in Providence, which is actually great because my legs are so pale that they are dying for tights to cover them up. And one day soon, they'll get their wish.  Fall weather is my favorite, but fall fashion is my least favorite because everyone thinks that cold means boring, and fall fashion loses all it's color and fun! But obviously, that's not okay with me. Dreary days need even more color if you ask me.

This necklace is my favorite! Expect some to pop up at my Etsy shop soon :)

the only brown in my closet is leopard print

sequin tank, DKNY
leopard shirt, thrifted
skirt, thrifted/diy
boots, Macy's
socks, Forever 21 (maybe?)

I vow to actually take outfit pictures every day from now on!

It's just that I've been working every day, and work clothes are boring. Dress code requires that I wear long pants, closed-toe flat shoes, and no sleeveless tops. Also, a stupid hat. booooo I hate dress code.

And now I leave you with a photo of my ROYGBIV'd closet. My only browns are leopard print, and a lot of my blacks are sequins :) Yep that's how I roll.

pink pants

pants, Zara
tank, H&M
blazer, thrifted
shoes, Urban Outfitters
bag, freebie
belt, mommy

COLORED PANTS! Have you any idea how long I've been searching? My denim/black/grey pant collection does not work for my COLOR-ness. 

ZARA! Have you any idea how amazing this store is? I would literally wear everything they sell. And they were having a HUGE sale, and if I let myself own a credit card, I would have maxed it out. Good thing I refuse to get one.

STUDS! I totally found these random studs on the floor of the Seventeen fashion closet while I was just sittin' & chillin' one day, and decided to put them on my blazer.

if i only had a brain

skirt, H&M
top, Old Navy
shoes, Payless
bag, freebie
blazer, thrifted

earrings, thrifted
turtle ring, Target
bow ring, Forever 21
slap watch, gift

i usually wear shorts under skirts and dresses because of: a) wind, b) stairs, c) dirty subway seats, d) constant sitting down/bending over/standing up again at work, e) that awkward sweatiness

except today i didn't. 

there was probably/definitely a lot of unnecessary panty flashing going on. it was breezy. eek!

What do you do to fix all of the above problems with wearing dresses/skirts?

love and right triangles,
