CT 269 Lost In The Fog

Hello My Darlings-
It was SO foggy, but it looked really pretty in the morning, as it has been for a few weeks now. I love this Bay Area weather with the foggy and freezing mornings that almost burn off later with a little bit of heat. It's nice. Though it's difficult to get dressed in the morning and know if it will, in fact, be cold or if it will be warm...
Anyway, I <3 my dad's new camera! My camera just doesn't pull the colors up so much or show them in such great intensity. Anyway,
Cardigan:Target/Button-up shirt: F21/Crocheted shirt:Buffalo Exchange/Belt:Thrift Town/Skirt:Crossroads/Stockings:Dance SF/Over-the-Knee-Socks:F21/Shoes:Urban Outfitters
Alright see you soon <3

CT 268 Waiting For the Mail

I've been so busy lately!
What with troubs gigs, homework, Bye Bye Birdie practice, being sick and it just being christmas time, it's been crazy. I'm trying not to be one of those people who post less than once a week, but I'm slowly becoming "ONE OF THEM"! NOOOOooooooooOOooooOoooOOooOoooo.
I swear, I'mma post more now. I've just been busy. (as I said above) and sick.
Seriously. I swear.
Wanna hear how sick I am right now? No? okay, I'm still telling you:
my nose is red from over-use of those nasty tissues that are all scratchy (SERIOUSLY has my school NOT seen this comercial?) (okay, i just spent like 20 minutes looking for the commercial and couldn't find it, but you know the aloe vera infused kleenex? that's what i'm talking about) come on people get the kleenex  "

For delicate skin, give all of your sniffles and sneezes soothing softness and see how a little lotion goes a long way." Anyway, my nose is red and dry and in pain, I sound like a man, my throat burns like there's a little fire going crackling in there and I'm sniffing every freakking second! I sound rediculous, like i'm trying to keep something from escaping.
I'ts not just me though, in my social psychology class today, my teacher showed us this really compelling speech and I couldn't tell who was crying and who was just sniffing to keep their snot IN their nose.
anyway, I look terrible, but here are some pictures of an outfit from BEFORE I was a sniffling nincompoop.

But enough excuses, I know you're probably tired of this outfit, seeing it for the last week (becuase I'm sure you religiously check my blog every singly day), but here are some more full-on pictures of it.

CT 267 San Fransisco Sneak Peek

My friend and I went to San Francisco for a little photo-shoot thing. It wasn't as successful as we'd hoped, but we still got a few good pictures. Here are a few from my dad's camera.
On this trip I tried to maintain the same hair style that I had had the day before. The results were not as good as I'd hoped, but it looked vaguely similar to the hair style I wore on thanksgiving so I just went with it.
We went to Peir 39, a very tourist-y place, I know, but pretty none-the less. Of course the day after Thanksgiving, it was already decked out with a huge ornamented Christmas tree (which we took many photos in front of).
First, however, we saw the beautiful sunset and just had to stop and take some photos. The lighting was so gorgeous leaving a pink glow around one's face.
It was simply marvelous. :)

Stuff that's been happening recently:
We went to my grandparents house for thanksgiving. Here are some pictures my dad took. :)
my dad was documenting every moment, as usual, and my first instinct was to make this face:
 lovely. very lady like.
I thought this picture showed how pretty my mom made my hair very well! <3
alright, more soon my lovelies ;)

A few weeks ago I went on a retreat with the troubadors. We all went to Tahoe for the weekend and, it being winter, it was snowing. it was one of the most fun things I've done in a long time. We all sang christmas carols together by the fire while the snow fell outside the windows and we all took walks in the snow together and spontaneously burst into song and then had snowball fights and made snow angels.  It was just amazing. We had super fun bonding time and, because the cabin was so small, we all became a lot closer (literally) and more comfortable with each other.
but enough writing. Here are some photos I took. <3
it was so beautiful!
well, i should go.

CT 265 Quashing My Lack of Inspiration (11/21/11)

I've been inside all day, watching TV shows and looking at other blogs, so to quash the un-creativity I felt, I started drawing as I was watching TV shows. When  I had watched all the Modern Family's I had not yet seen, I checked out my copious supply of bookmarked fashion bloggers and drew a few (unintentional rhyme) Here are some of the drawings.

Le Happy:
(actual picture this drawing is of)

La Vagabond Dame:
(Post this drawing is from)

I drew more as well, but these were the ones I was most proud of. 
Hope you're all having a lovely week off (if you get a week off for thanksgiving) and I will see you again tomorrow. :)
Keep Keeping

CT 264 My impulsiveness+Cutting my own hair=BANGS (11/14/11)

The other day, after watching New Girl I decided that I really wanted bangs like Zooey Deschanel. She's so gorgeous I couldn't help wishing I looked like her. unfortunately, because I cut my own hair, it was very easy for me to just cut off bangs after I took a shower. Which, in fact, is exactly what I did. Luckily, after I realized that curly bangs were not going to do it for me, I noticed that I had a hair straightener and I could, in fact, straighten my hair, which I did. I tied a bow in my hair, threw on some comically large glasses, and I was set to go to school.

<3 Love you all my lovelies

CT 263 Patterns a Plenty (11/7/11)

I love this sweater material dress! I feel so fall-y in it. It makes me happy since fall is lovely. The leaves turning colors and falling so that you can jump on them and hear the little crunching noise beneath your feet? ahhh. I love the fall. Although I was freezing while these photos were being taken, it was worth it since they turned out so cool!
Alright. Hope you're all having a lovely week and I'M ALMOST CAUGHT UP. ONE MORE POST AND I'M FIIIINNNAAALLLYYY caught up. Yes. 
Alright, hopefully you're having a less stressful week before break without a huge essay question test for history or a graded class discussion in English along with a four hour practice for the musical.

CT 262 Plaid Collar. (11/3/11)

It's very cold today, but I wore a skirt and blazer none-the-less. I tend to do that. Not care about the weather, I mean. I'm actually very used to being cold now. If I wear a sweatshirt (on the weekends or something) I get extremely hot walking around. I'm too used to wearing thin sweaters even in mid-winter.
Anyway, I have been coveting detachable collars for a while now, and I finally just cut the collar off of one of my old collared shirts that I don't wear anymore. I think it was a good re-use of that shirt, since I never wear it and was going to get rid of it anyway. This FTBH post is really what got me started on detachable collars, and I can't wait to add to my collection. I have a great plan sketched out for a patterned, petaled collar that I'm super exited about. Perhaps it will come into fruition over Thanksgiving break. :)
Hope you're all having a great week!

CT 261 Shadow (11/1/11)

This weekend I went to buffalo exchange, planning to try and find things for the dickens fair, and ending up spending a lot of money on other clothes and shoes. DAMN IT. This always happens to me. I swore I wasn't going to buy anything, but come on! Peter Pan collars and black studded boots? How could I say no? Here are a few of the new things, worn the next day of course.

Also, in the last two, I thought the shadows were hilarious. It was this perfect Time of day where my shadows looked extremely fat. They seem to gain and lose weight fairly quickly throughout the course of the day.

Anyway- Hope you're all having a lovely week and I'll see you again soon. 
Keep keepin' my lovelies-
