Some more fabulous thrift store finds. A vintage 80's Betsey Johnson dress. (GAHHHHH! Amazingness) Worn with a red belt, velvet shoes, and a vintage suede red bag with a zipper across the front. (I got the bag awhile ago and haven't found what to wear it with.) I paired the silk pastel pink pants (I mentioned them earlier on the blog) with a cummerbund and bow tie that i bought in a set together for 2.99, and a lace shirt. The first picture was for photography class. It was supposed to have a color theme hence the red.

I got a subscription to this magazine for Christmas and boy oh boy was i a happy 13 year old camper! Worn is chock full of interesting articles and intriguing outfits. I love the interview with Johnathan Walford and Kenn Norman. The fashion collectors talk about how they became interested in fashion and (gasp) their dislike of Chanel. Which personally disagree with but anywhoo, my favorite article was Beauty As Duty which was about the second world war and how it affected fashion. I can't wait for the next issue and I'll post about it when I get it! PROMISE!

"I have a plan!" was the first thing I said to my friends Sonia and Alisa (besides of course giving them hugs) And OH SONIA HOW I LOVE YOU responded with "does that include thrifting?" How right she was! We walked to Goodwill and had a fabulous time thrifting! Sonia found the greatest Leather Jacket; That's a perfect too big slouchy look, Aw she's sooo amazingly pretty! and the most niftydandyloo thing is she's gonna stencil designs onto it with silver spray-paint. And Alisa (who is also a beauty just to let you know!) got tons of stuff! I got this really cool silver dress, and a brown and white striped vintage dress and finally these powder pink silk pants. I was going for the stella Mcartney ss10 RTW look! maybe? Included pics of my clothes and Sonia's jacket,but sadly i didn't get any usable pics of Alisa's clothes. WAMP WAMP WAHHHH

I went to Goodwill after school yesterday. I was uber surprised at what I found! It was like diving into a rather musty smelling pile of gold! I took a pic of the outfit in the store and then today when I wore it to school. I always feel super duper diddly fantastwic when I can put together a whole outfit while thrift shopping. Like I could walk right out of the store and onto the street. Problem though is that when I do that I feel compelled to buy the whole thing. But still it only cost me 30 bucks for a skirt, shirt, sweater! Still, arg 30 dollars is a lot for a 13 year old on a budget... ): People kept asking me what the H on the sweater was for. I have no clue though I assume it's a school? But my social studies teacher told me to just make it up. So I said hooligans, but then I though of the inevitable Harry Potter. The Hogwarts also starts with a H and so does HufflePuff? I have revealed myself secret Harry Potter nerd. Well, nerd no doubt but I don't really think it was a secret. On an ending note. I have a puzzling conundrum? I was walking home from school today when a small child (5 or so) pointed at me then proceeded to cry. His mother picked him up (he was still pointing) and walked off. I'm confused? If you have any theories comment on them. Also I'm not kidding this happened. I'm slightly offended.

Today I decided to take the long trek... (10 mins wow, I'm an active person) to my local Goodwill. Which happens to be the closest thing my area has to heaven. No fat baby thingys with wings nor is there clouds shaped like cotton candy or horribly tacky white gowns that everyone seems to be soooo in love with. Okay, sometimes there is the tacky dresses. But you can certainly find the occasional an amazing piece. Anyway, after I went there my mom (who's upholstering a chair) made me go to a store called Foam Rubber. I'm not kidding it was actually called Foam Rubber. And she got some foam for a cushion on her chair. You will not believe how many people need foam/rubber. The phone was ringing constantly and the store was crowded. God, it was so strange. Foam! THEY SELL BLOCKS OF FOAM FOR GODSAKE! I just don't understand the appeal of that, but whatever. I have included pictures of the Foam Rubber store because when you have been to the Twilight Zone and back you should share your experiences. Pictures of my local Goodwill because I Love That Place! Finally pictures of what I bought and what I wore today because this is a fashion blog... I wore: a vintage slip

Gah, this is love. Christopher Kane's SS10 collection. It's so so so adjectives fail me. My use of the english language is not adequate enough to express how I feel about these pieces. On another note, I'm taking a photography class at my school! Maybe my use of a self timer with become better. Normally when i go take pictures multiple things happen.
1) I "almost" break my camera.... More then once.
2)smash/blowup/destroy beyond recognition/ some sort of valuable where ever I happen to be taking pictures.
3) ending up on the floor cursing and asking myself WHY? WHYYYYY?
for my first assignment I am to take one Fashion shot and an artistic one. I think i'm going to use this door that my mother picked up god know where as a backdrop. P.S the door is really fantastic in real life. The picture does not do it justice.

Yesterday, I went with my mom around Boston and Brighton. We walked in a circle attempting to go to every thrift/vintage store in a couple mile radius. My legs were killing, me having just had a particularly strenuous gym class. That involved running endlessly from one side of the gym to the other. Over and over and over again. So walking that much took dedication and the shining ray of hope that is shopping. My efforts were paid off in the first store that I stepped my aching feet into..... Urban Vintage. Which consists of mostly new handmaid clothing. In the back though they do have a rack of vintage (where this came from)

I have no reason behind this post other then I personally enjoy these pictures. You can't really see the dress nor the shoes. Unpractical posting full steam ahead. The dress is a 50s silk dress, that i got in Good and Maggie's in connecticut. Of course i'm wearing my Docs!
I fufilled my promise. A GAZILLION grueling hours of homeyworkey later I'm finally posting. So I wore this out fit today to school. The guidence counsler asked me in a horrified voice "Are you wearing PANTS?" God, I almost had a heart attack. I thought she would call me on dress code. The terrifing consiquence is wearing these disgusting sweatshirt and sweatpants things. And possibly the big guns... umbro shorts from the 90s that give people hernias looking at. Luckily, she smiled and said (in response to my flustered t-these are p-pants.. and my attempts to run away) It's okay, I didn't mean to embarass you. I escaped... I thank my extra super duper lucky stars.
1)get back from the mental hospital
2)have evacuated the gnomes successfully
3)eaten a life time supply of Razzles. FIRST IT'S CANDY THEN IT'S GUM!
