Three Lessons in Life

1. Watch windmills spinning. A lot of people think that windmills are ugly but I think they are beautiful and majestic. I love watching them and thinking about how they transfer energy from the wind to places around the country.
2. Make random things into dresses. A family friend is getting married this Saturday and my mom made some paper flowers for decoration. I had to bring them all to church to give them to her mom so I traveled with all these flower things. I got some funny looks, but it was fun because they're so fluffy and beautiful...
3. I think this is them most important. You must make homemade bagels. I made these a little while back and they were the best things in the world. I try to avoid exaggeration as much as I can, but this is probably the best tasting things in the world. I made them with Peach and it took about 2 hours, but all that time was completely worth it. You don't even have to toast it and cream cheese it because it is so good just by itself.

Bowling or Sleeping

Someone asked me if I was ready for bed and another said my shirt looked like a bowling shirt. I have no idea. It has some embroidery on the pocket that says something that looks like Eseeyes, but I am not sure. If you have any idea, comment it. But then, maybe if I knew then I wouldn't think of wearing it. Who knows.

Dress as top

Been wanting to wear my dress for a while now... so, I decided to show off my stupendous racerback tan-line wearing a belted skirt. One girl thought my outfit was a dress and in reality the black part is a dress but the combination is.. not. Ha! tricked her!! Good day. (don't pay any attention to my hair, because apparently I didn't)

Black Lace dress: Thrifted. Black bow: part of the dress. Pink belt: Mervin's going out of business sale. White skirt: Old Navy. Charles Albert platforms: thrifted.

Donna Karan f/w 2010

This is Donna Karan's Fall 2010 line. I love her look because it is so simple, but really crisp and fresh. I love her mix of textures in some of the looks. In the below picture I love she mixes the widths of ruffle-y layers of the top.
I love the movement of the dress and the mixture of the two textures of black.
This dress is one of my favorite because of the really unique texture.

This look caught my eye because of the mixture of fur and all the textiles. So beautiful.

Jason Schwartzman

Jason Schwartzman is not just a random name that popped in my head to be a title. He is an actor and he's married to a fashion designer. I tried to google some of her designs... and found nothing. But, he is a splendid looking man who looks good in a thick bushy mustache. WHO looks good in a thick bushy mustache?!?! NO ONE but Jason Schwartzman.

He played Louis XVI on "Marie Antoinette," because he has the perfect face. He was first supposed to play Donnie Darko, but it didn't fit in his schedule so Jake Gyllenhaal was replacement...which he did a fine job (says my father). He is also in the new movie with Michael Cera called "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" where he plays one of the evil ex boyfriends, which I will see someday because of Mr. Cera and Mr. Schwartzman's lovely face... :D

Halter: Thrifted. Green Softball belt: Thrifted. Black Skirt: Target. Pumps: Thrifted.

Water and Oil

People are saying that this editorial in Italian Vogue is controversial. They say that it makes such an ugly thing beautiful. I think it portrays a different message. The beautiful models and clothes are in this grimy place and it shows how ugly and destructive the BP spill is. It shows the beauty dying and looks sad; not only is it avant garde but it tells a message. I think this is a brilliant idea and really beautifully executed.

Carl Lewis

Carl Lewis has nothing to do with what I am wearing, but I was trying to think of a title and that name popped up.. I googled it and he was a former track star... hmm funny how names stuff themselves in your head for not much of a reason. I don't even care about Carl Lewis ... because he was a sprinter.. hmm..
