beat it, creep

I can't even explain how pretty it was today. Though it was pretty hot, the sun was so bright, and the sky was so blue. This here post is just an outfit post, but in honor of the good weather it was taken outside~
 dress: vintage, top worn as collar: vintage, necklace: mom's, belt: gift, denim jacket: diy/thrifted, leggings: dollar store
 unfortunately my camera had a panic attack and didn't take a clear picture of my newest patch...It's Wanda from Cry Baby and it says BEAT IT CREEP.
 and most importantly we made rangoons for dinner! (recipe here)

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted anything- I apologize! I've been distracted with school (as usual), family stuff, making new things for etsy, and -drumroll- setting up my very own ANTIQUE BOOTH!!! (yes the american dream is within my holding as I type this) My dad and I have been wanting to do it forever and we just paid for the first month and the deposit. It officially opens on the 15th of May, and there are no words to describe my excitement. And don't worry, I'll keep you guys posted on how it's going and everything. Below are pictures I've taken lately. For the past couple of weeks I haven't had a spark of inspiration, but I can feel it begin to boil in my soul since I've been watching a lot of films the past few days. (BECAUSE OF TIFFANY'S AMAZING NEW FILM BLOG) So I'll be posting regularly again- I just needed a break from everything, y'know? (of course you do.)

double identity

 I'm not really sure what I was doing with these photos, but it was really nice out today, and our rose bushes bloomed this week. I was inspired by Sam's new blog post, because she was talking about springtime, flowers, Harold & Maude, and included all these great inspiration photos and yeah go check it out. I feel like the pictures I took today could be something in a movie about a lonely girl who has no one but herself and her roses. She would think she was insane, but really she would be so alone her mind would cause hallucinations. Wow, I don't even know, but it sounded better in my head. I don't have anything else to say so I'm going to go and continue watching Ready For Love with my dad (my cousin is in it).

c'est la vie

Today I spent the afternoon with my good pal, Jordan, to have an early birthday celebration for her. We spent many hours at the China Buffet (which is the best buffet ever and I am proud to say I'm a regular there), Goodwill, and Hastings (the best music/movies/books/basically anything store ever). It was just really great, and I'm bummed it's over already... Anywho a little bit about my outfit:
blazer: vintage, shirt worn as collar: thrifted, dress: etsy, tights: jcpenny, socks: halloween 
store, shoes: sister's, belt: gift/vintage 
I was going for an "if I was in a John Waters/John Hughes collaboration I'd probably look like this" look. My two main inspirations were Wanda Woodward and one of my favorite bloggers, Tiffany. (and this is a warning that this post is kind of really long, because I also mention my current inspirations blahblahblah)
 there are no words to describe my love for dim sum

For once I'm excited for summer, but I know I'm going to immediately regret the feeling once it hits 100 degrees. Maybe I'm excited for summer, because that means no school, new job, my dad and I are going to open up a booth in an antique mall, and I'll be filming participants for the Do Not Enter Diaries. I've been seeing so much summer vibes lately (especially from the 70s), and even though the sun will scorch my skin, I'm ready for it. Oh, and my theatre group advanced AGAIN! (my school hasn't advanced this far since '06- IT'S A BIG DEAL GUYS) As you would say in French, c'est la vie, life is good. I mean, yeah, I loathe high school and dread homework and learning algebra and physics, but it's not too bad. (side note: i'm working on a collection of high school related posts) My current music obsessions is BLEACHED. Their debut album just came out, and it's basically the best thing ever since sliced bread.
Have a good weekend!
