I Would Like to Thank the Academy

Ok, so the coolest thing in the history of my blogging has happened.  This wonderful girl Maya (who is fantastic and a Rookie too) nominated me for this thing called a Libester Award.  I was super confused at first, because i mean ya know, I didn't really think people really read this, but I'm super excited now that i know what it is.  Pretty much what it means is that I am one of her favorite Blogs that has less than 500 followers (one of the upsides to not having a lot of followers i guess). 
Now I'm going to go into the who spiel about what i have to do and I'm actually really excited for this. 

When you get this award, you have to:

-Post 11 things about yourself
-Answer the 11 questions the person giving the award has set for you. 
-Create 11 questions for the people you will be giving the award to.
-Choose 11 people to award, with less than 200 followers and send them a link to your post. 
-Go to their page and tell them.
Also if I nominate you, you put this badge in your post 


11 Things about me:

1. I am 15
2. I love sewing and fashion
3. I can't spell even if my life depended on it
4. I like to compose my own music to play
5. If i had the choice of what to do for a day i would probably just sit around the house reading 
6. I have always wanted to dye my hair green but i never have
7. I love Rookie, and Tavi
8. I follow way t many TV shows
9. I wish I lived in the 70's (minus the whole women not having rights thing)
10. I enjoy taking pictures but have never actually owned a fancy camera 
11. I do not like squishy fruit 

Answers to Questions:

1. What's your favorite store to shop at? Why do you shop there?
   I really like the shop Sway.  There are a lot of really cool things there for not that much money.  Also the people who work there think that they are really cool and they really are not, so that is funny to watch.  

2. What's your favorite band right in this moment? Favorite song by them?
   Well that one is easy.  Clearly it is Marina and the Diamonds.  I love her so much and their song Starring Role is so fantastic.  The lyrics kind of described my life for a little bit.  

3. What's your favorite movie?
   Breakfast Club. For sure

4. If you could live in one cheesy eighties/nineties movie, which one would you live in?
  Well i think the previous question just answered this question.  I would love to be in the breakfast club and have friends that were made by an impromptu weekend in detention 

5. If you had to wear one outfit for an entire year what would it be?
   This one is a little bit harder, but I think that it would have to be my blue shorts/skirt from sway, my safari animal button up, a black bow-tie, and my brown oxford heels.  I love that outfit i feel really happy whenever i wear it.  

6. What are you most passionate about? Like what can you rant about for hours?
  This is going to sound very Rookie of me, but provably women rights and feminism   I don't even want to get started with it because you will get me going with ranting.  

7. Who/what inspires you most?
   Really great musicians really inspire me.  Not the 6 year old piano prodigies, but the real musicians   The ones who had to work for what they wanted and had to prove themselves to the world to make it.

 8. What's the one piece of clothing that makes you drop your pants when guys/girls (whoever you're attracted to) wear it? (Like me with collars+sweaters)
   Oh my,  well i would have to say when a guy wears super hip glasses they just look sp refined and knowledgeable and it is really very attractive.  

9. Who's your favorite artist?
    Dave Brubeck.

10. What's your favorite magazine/zine/book? (answer all three)
  Magazine: Vogue (duh)
  Zine: shun me because i don't really read them
  Book: The Fault in our Stars by John Green 

11. What's one piece of clothing you cannot live without?
  Being totally not practical here, but my bow ties.  I wear them all the time and they can make any outfit look dapper.

Whale Songs


the wonderful artwork at my school

So i have made a deal with myself, i am going to try to be good about posting at least once a week, if not more.  i have been really very lazy lately about posting and I'll have the conversation with my self that will go a little something like this.
me: i really want to post today, but i don't have that many pictures, and people don't really care about my personal life, so i guess i won't.  Maybe tomorrow.
But now i am promising you, the faithful readers of my blog, that i will post more often now.  
(Old Police band shit that my friends dad gave to me forever ago, shorts from sway, oxford heels, and a jean shirt)

So if you didn't already get this from me talking about art and music so much, i go to an arts school.  Every year all of the visual artists do murals at our school to make it look fancy, and i was just noticing and Wonder why i never take pictures in front of them (well now that i think about it, it's probably because people look at you weird when you do, but who cares).  This one was done last year by a senior and a close friend of mine.  It's one of my favorite around the school because i love Marilyn Monroe and Andy Warhol. 

(cat dress, blue tights, thrifted sweater, DIY collar)

Oh and here is another outfit from the day before.  I got this dress from Hanne's sister because she left it when she went off to college, and i made this collar and sewed the cutest patch onto it.  Once i get my Etsy up I will be selling them.

Set Fire to the Rain

(diy mod dress, yellow jacket i got at a garage sale)

So I would just like to put it out there that my hair is ridiculously red.  I am so happy at how it turned out.  It was so easy too. I found one that i could just put on my hair and it would dye the rest of my hair while it bleached and dyed out the dark parts of my hair.  I dyed it this Wednesday for this thing at my school we like to call field day.  It is the most crazy and outrageous thing you will ever experience.  Everyone is high off of adrenalin (and some other stuff too) and going crazy.  It is the most athletic that you will ever see an arts school get.   I havent been able to start my etsy yet because i gave been so busy helping to plan that, but i promise that the minuite i get the chance all of my stuff that i make will be for sale and you guys can just give me all of your money.  That's the plan! 

Oh my! I almost forgot to tell you guys.  My wonderful friend Hanne, the one with the fantastically pink hair and the wonderful sence in style, finally made a blog.  So now instead of just looking at pictures of her  on my blog you can look at them on her blog too! collective-frowns.blogspot.com

I Dress To Impress


we bitchface to show our passive aggression

This week was spirit week at our school and that is always fun.  I'm one of those annoying people that is actually into school spirit.  One of my favorite days this week  (besides field day) was our day that we dressed to impress.  At first i thought it was the most stupid thing i had heard of, i mean ho boring is it to dress up fancy for a spirit day, I do that on a normal basis.  But then me and my friends decided to do our own take on the day.  and of course being who we are we dressed to impress Tavi.  I hope she is proud and very impressed.  
new grandma sweater

I went thrifting last weekend at Clothes Contact.  I have decided it is my new favorite new store.  it is super vintage and thrifty and it has really cool stuff and everything is $10 for a pound of clothing.  For $10 there i got this sweater and a fantastic pair of shorts.
my fantastic shorts 
me and Hanne dressed like we were going to a rookie meetup

full short of our fantastic outfits 





marc always beautiful
want these so bad

I finally got my eyes checked and i am getting new glasses soon and i am begging my mom for these.  they are so grandma chic

The Halls Are My Runway

so i have realized that ever since school has started i haven't been as good about posting stuff, and i feel very bad about it because you all know, once school starts you have to look cute.  people always have cool style at my school (except for those few that just look horrible) and i really want to show all of you that.  
flower crown friends

so i think that we can assume that my friends are really cool just by the fact that we are all wearing flower crowns that we made (GO ROOKIE).  i just love all of these people so much.  on the left there's me, then Maya, then Hanne, then Gillian.  all looking sooo cute. 


mod dress i made

My main goal this month (besides school and other stuff like that) is to start up an Etsy.  i have been waiting to for a long time now but i have never really gotten the inspiration to.  but lately i have been making some really cool stuff and if you have any suggestions you should comment below.  


diy Sparkle shoes


Purple Rain ahaha

re-dyed my hair and now its very, VERY purple.  now i just cant wait until the 19th comes around so i can dye it red.
