"I DIY!"

On my last trip to the city, I stopped by one of my favorite stores, TopShop, for a looksie and found a few things that tickled my fancy. However, after further inspecting my finds, I decided that I would have more fun trying to replicate them, in my own way. So, my next mission is to either find old clothing of mine to deconstruct or thrifting for some materials.. I am especially intrigued by the dip-dye, but sadly have run out of dye, so I'm going to have to wait with that one. The bow tee looks very do-able too and I thought maybe a black bow on a white tee would make for a quirkier version. I shall further explore my options and get back to you all pronto.

I recently decided to go back to school for a little while and to possibly turn a hobby into something that could pay the bills. Its all still in the works, but I have a ticket to the city after NYE, and am thrilled, anxious, excited, scared and feel all these other emotions I couldn't possibly describe in words. But at the end of the day, all the decision making has made me a wreck, and so I'm looking forward to just getting things done and getting started on my new little project.

Maybe tomorrow I have something more interesting to say.

I a just going to comment on a whole string of posts because I am too lazy to do them one by one sorry.

Love the docs. What a great find! I have always sort of wanted white ones, but my skin is probably far too pale for them.

You looked beautiful at the wedding! You have such a pretty face, seriously.

The chucks are really awesome. Your poor nana though, I can just imagine her face. I think you should wear them anyway though.
