CT 130 Sunrise, Sunset (5/26/11)

Thank you to my dad for taking these photos <3
Dress: Nordstrom/Sweater Tights:Goodwill/Boots:Thrift Town/Belt: Granny's Attic/Purse: from Grandma/Bow: from room
Hey guys, I bought this outfit during one of my shopping spree's with my aunt.
It is possibly one of my favorite dresses and it also went perfectly with my new purse. I was reading the Moptop's blog and there was a giveaway for this purse. I thought it was really cute, but I couldn't enter, my mom saw me on the website and said "oh grandma had that purse at one point" and she asked her and she did and gave it to me.
Don't you love when things like this work out so perfectly? :)

Oh yeah! I also got an account on "LOOKBOOK" which is the fashion-conciousness website where people post their looks and you can "hype" them and "fan" people you like. It's really fun and I spend HOURS on it.
In order to "hype" and "fan" you need an account, but it's really easy to make one- you just give your email (I would recommend your junk one since it does email you from time to time) and a password and voila! You're done. I would love if you guys would check out my account- you can actually see some things that will be in upcoming posts since I usually have the time to post them on Lookbook before I have the time to make a real post here. 
Anyway, check it out by clicking here. or clicking on the "Lookbook" button or the "hype" button above.

The weather was really weird today- the clouds were yellow-y and the light was golden right before I took these photos, but it went away by the time I was ready to take the photos. My parents said it looked almost like tornado weather, which was scary, but I guess it wasn't because we didn't have a Tornado.
happy friday-

CT 127 Stuck in Bed (5/23/11)

Here is a drawing I did of my outfit

Don't you hate it when you come up with a really cute outfit and then you get sick halfway through the day of school? Ugh, that happened to me with this outfit. I really liked it, but I got REALLY nauseous halfway through the day. Anyway, because I was sick I never got a chance to take photos in the outfit, and I've been meaning to for a while, but I cannot, for the life of me, find the skirt. Anyway, it was awesome because I had worn every piece from the outfit so I took the pieces from the previous posts and put them together. It reminds me of those kids books where you flip over each piece and you get a mismatched figure. I forget what they're called...

Bow: scrap of fabric/Crocheted top:Thrift Town/Belt:Granny's Attic/Skirt: Crossroads
This is the outfit I wore ^ I took old posts, cut out the pieces and put them together in a collage-type thing that let's you see what I was wearing without me having to model it.

Anyway, happy weekend lovelies-

CT 126 Yosemite (part two) (5/22/11)

I took a ton of photos today because all the photos on my memory card got deleted! I had to recreate what happened the day before which was REALLY frustrating! (all the pictures from yesterdays post were recreations- I went back to the beach with the rock towers and took those photos)
 Anyway, here are some pictures

Yosemite Falls

Half Dome
Hope you are all having a great week and those Californians are keeping comfortable in this CRAZY weather!

CT 126 Yosemite (part one) (5/21/11)

We went to this meadow thing and walked across it today, it was so beautiful, words cannot begin to encompass the luscious green grass and gorgeous lighting, so here are some pictures :)

Overalls: Granny's Attic/Shirt:F21/Shoes:Toms

This bridge thing led to a rock beach thing where my family and I spent a few hours making rock towers.  It was SO much fun, I didn't want to leave! It took a lot of concentration and you had to really FEEL when things were balancing correctly, it was really fun and relaxing.

This one is made by my younger brother and is DEFINITELY my favorite one, Look at how awesomely it defies gravity! I love how impossible it looks :)
I made this one :)
This is my creative thing for the day: making rock towers. YES.

CT 125 Spring Fling (5/20/11)

We had "Day on the Green" at school today, which is basically this party thing after school (which lets out early) on the field and there are all these blow up slides and a slip'n'slide and stuff. It was kind of fun, but the blow up slides burned my legs because I slid down them so fast :( anyway, this is the outfit that I wore.

Sunglasses:Granny's Attic/Dress: F21/Scarf: found/Shoes: Goodwill- hand decorated by my friends and I

Both shoes are from different pairs as you can see from the difference in color. The left one was hand painted by me and the right one was signed and decorated by my friends. :) They are my all time favorite tennis shoes. <3

CT 120 (part two) (5/15/11)

Here is the continuation of my other "CT 120" post. For those of you who didn't see the other post, my friend and I went to Tilden farm and Tilden park and walked around and had a mini photo-shoot thing. I love doing these photo-shoots, because not only is it fun, but when I do it with a good photographer like my friend Madeline, I get a bunch of good pictures of myself out of it :) and all of the girls here know (including myself), that although for some reason some people consider it narcissism, every one of us love a good picture of ourselves.  
Anyway, here are the photos: 
Tie Thing:scrap of fabric/Shirt:Goodwill/Skirt:Thrifted (Brand: F21)/Belt:Granny's Attic (Thrift Store)/Shoes:Thrifted F21 flats
 That is a cow's ear behind me :)

This one is in front of a barn thing.
Hope you all are having a great Tuesday (is that possible? It always seems like Tuesdays are the worst- except watching Raising Hope...), I will try to catch up on the posts this week. Sorry I got behind, I was in Yosemite over the weekend (pictures will come soon) so I didn't get a chance to post, and I was trying to get a picture for the last post, but I never did and when I got these pictures from Madeline I figured it was time to post again. Anyway, <3 <3
Thanks to Madeline for taking these photos <3

CT 123 Print (5/18/11)

ugh, sorry I don't have this yet, I made what I think is a really cool print in art class, which I will post a picture of as soon as possible...



Also, I got the last thing up, so you should check it out. :)

CT 122 Rain, rain, go away, come again another day... (5/17/11)

It was raining today!
Don't get me wrong, after all these posts of loving warmth and hating cold you must think I HATE winter, I don't- really. I just miss summer and warm weather and I'm READY FOR IT TO BE SPRING. I don't want it to be summer, so although I actually LOVE the rain most days. I am a little sick of it.
Anyway, these photos were photoshopped to make the color look like this. I wanted to do something kind of similar to this and I am happy with the results. :)

Top: Platoe's Closet/Skirt: Crossroads/Belt: Thrift Town/Headband: H&M/Earrings: f21/Sweater Tights: f21/Boots: Wanted/Cardigan:Target/Umbrella: in closet.
Have a great week! :)
Thanks to my dad for taking these photos <3
