Capture it, remember it

My gosh, ya'll. You wouldn't even believe all the crazy/amazing things i've got going on right now.

I saw Taylor Swift in concert!

She was beyond fantastic live.

Afterwards I got to meet Grant and Paul from her band! I was freaking out. hard.

Let's turn this into an outfit post! Thrifted dress and gap cardi ;)

For the next month i'll be focussing on preparing to move into our apartment, and I'm also doing some really cool research this summer. I'm volunteering with one of my professors researching the history of the birth control pill, in addition to trying to complete my extensive summer reading list.

In other news, is anyone else effing IN LOVE with that Greyson Chance kid who did the cover of Gaga's Paparazzi? I can't wait to see him on Ellen again tomorrow!

Love Always,

Knowing that right now is all that matters

Reasons I haven't blogged in a week:
1. I usually don't blog all that often anyway...
2. I have strep throat
3. We found an appartment! If everything works out I will be moving out July 1.
4. I have two jobs now so... yeah.

I actually wore this outfit I think last week but I haven't taken any outfit pics since then. I loooove this outfit, mainly because everything was so cheap! Hehe

T-Shirt: (customized?)American Apparel via Goodwill, $1.99
Skirt: Club Monaco, $16 (sale + student discount)
Shoes: Payless, $11
Earrings: Vintage from my aunt's friend, Freeeeee

The shirt's tag says American Apparel but I've never seen shirts like this in the store so I'm guessing someone applied this stereo design themselves?

I still have no appetite (eating hurts like a mofo), but I decided I could handle some cheerios so my dad went to get me some :) He just go back so I'm off to nom some cheerios and watch more Real Housewives!

Love Always,

You got a lotta lotta nerve...

I'm finally done school for the summer. 4 solid months of reading for pleasure instead of research, sleeping whenever I feel like it, and watching Jersey Shore and Real Housewives without feeling guilty because I should be studying.

Here's what I wore to my last exam friday afternoon.

Dress: thrifted, $7
Belt: thrifted, $2
Fringe boots: Spring

This dress is an absolutely amazing find. It appears to be handmade and the detail work and fabric quality is just astounding and pictures can't do it justice. Obviously it is veeery short though so I had to wear black opaque tights. So short in fact that both my T.A. and Nathan's vocal coach complimented me on my "shirt". Oh well.

I'm not gonna lie, it took guts to wear this super-short, supper voluminous dress on a regular day. However, it is remarkably comfortable and the huge sleeves make it really... breezy? hah. And anyway, most of the time I really, reeeaaally don't care what other people think so that wasn't the issue. The only thing I was worried about was fitting the sleeves into a coat, but luckily it was warm enough that day that I didn't need one :)

These pictures may or may not have been taken after a few glasses of champagne...

Love Always,
