Shoulda Got a Seven

Forever21 leather jacket, sweater and skirt from thrift, Forever21 heels

I love these shoes, but they're a bit too big. Without the straps that wrap around the ankle, they're a bit complicated to walk in. I made a mistake by slapping on some lotion before wearing these heels, my feet were sliding like mad!

I've realised that clothes shouldn't be taken so seriously. I really want to begin experimenting with different shapes and textures and forms.

Oh, she's only Seventeen...

Yesterday, I had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday with some good friends.

That was my outfit by the end of the night.
Men's GAP shirt and American Apparel double U-dress worn as skirt, Forever 21 leather jacket and boots.

My outfit began as this, but things changed.
Boots from thrift.

My friends and I rode the bus to Downtown Dallas and had some wonderful pizza.

We took the train to one of my favorite shopping areas, Mockingbird Station, and just relaxed. It started to rain on us.

We then went to Northpark Mall.

While at Northpark, in Forever21, my shoe's sole was hanging by a thread! I had to purchase some before we left because with every step, I was afraid that the sole was going to come off completely.

I tried on some amazing trousers and bebe and purchased those babies in an instant after trying them on. I've been looking for some good pants! A dream come true. The shoes that I tried with the pants looked great, but I couldn't afford them. Instead, I bought some look alikes at Forever21.

And that was my birthday. I was so happy to shop and to see everyone!

I had difficulty finding an outfit for church this morning. I had difficulty taking these photos. It was cold outside, my dog wouldn't listen to me, my camera was acting up. I need a photographer!

Truth be told, I do NOT know how to tie a scarf, especially a big thick one like this!
I haven't gotten the hang of being back in school. When I begin to do my work, I feel like pushing my papers to the side and placing my head on the desk and drift away into summer vacation. I honestly do not enjoy school.

I love this outfit. I wanna wear it over and over and over.

sweet dreams.

I've been having dreams of being unprepared for things. A couple of days ago I had a dream about being unprepared for a play. Last night I had a dream of being unprepared for a fashion show. In my dream, I was the coordinator, but the opening night of the fashion show, I had no clothes, I barely had any models--it was a nightmare.

This is Sunday's outfit, I wore it yesterday.

I don't know where I got the denim jacket. Its really old. Blouses from Macy's, Forever 21 skirt and shoes, and my trusty belt from the thrift.

Ugh man. School starts tomorrow. I don't want to go, I've enjoyed my break. Now I have to return to nagging students and teachers and my worst enemy, uniforms. I hate DISD.
Well, I have to get the last of what I need to do for school done.

great aunts

I went to my cousin's birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese's today. It was nice until more people started showing up. I enjoyed myself, though.
After that we headed to my grandparents' house and had some gumbo. My family members were disoriented by my outfit today. They thought I was wearing a dress that came above my butt and some tights. I had to explain to them that I'm wearing leggings as pants today, but they went on about how my shirt is not long enough and blah blah blah. They always have something to say about what I wear, its always something! They also constantly remind me of how skinny my legs are, as if I forget. I've always wanted more shapelier legs. Especially my thighs. The leggings I wore today did not help at all. They make my butt look flat and sucked in. Ughhh.

I don't know where I got the jacket or the turtleneck or belt from, but the leggings are from Wal-Mart, the boots are from Forever 21 as well as my bag.

sonia in the suburbs

Happy New Year's everyone! I didn't do anything fancy last night, but I did watch celebrations on television.
I don't make resolutions, but I have to this year.

  • Put more effort into my closet
  • Put more effort into my blog
  • Put more effort into patience

I visited my cousin Sonia today in her suburban home, far beyond the city. She invited our family to come eat and the food was good. There was rice and gravy, which I'm crazy about. I had a good time. After eating, I went shopping with my aunt and her daughter (my college bound cousin!).

I absolutely adore these heels! They make my feet look small. :) But they're amazing, and I feel like I leave magical clicks with every step! They're a snug fit, I suppose nobody tried them on in the store. While riding in the car, I felt like my circulation was cut off in my feet! But after giving the shoes a second chance, it felt as if the shoes were made just for me. Either they stretched out, or my feet got used to them.
