Is That a....*gasp*......boy???

Finally....sweater weather

Once again that time of the year has rolled around.  The time to stuff yourselves full of food and sit by the fireplace drinking hot cocoa with someone you love (or can at least tolerate to be around.  But more importantly  the time has come for fall clothing, this means that it is time to pile on the layers and go crazy with the scarves.  I have bins in my closet full of scarves just waiting to be worn.  Also I can break out the super dark lipstick and the heavy eye liner.  If you couldn't tell already I love the fall and winter time with a burning passion.
Well sadly I don't think there is really anything even remotely fashion related that has happened to me lately   I have been cut off from my shopping privileges (but have no fear, black Friday is coming) so i haven't gotten to buy anything new and cool.  I did get to dye my hair again so that was slightly fantastic, now it is no longer that odd pink/red/purple color.  It is a dark red that ever-so-luckily matches my favorite lipstick.  

I do have slightly big news though.  (I am going to go on a personal rant for a second, don't mind me)  I now have a boyfriend.  *GASP* I know, shocker right? The fact that someone can stand to put up with me all the time? haha.  Well his name is Ilia and I really like him.  He's a musician just like me (he plays trumpet though) so we have band together.  I will try not to be one of those girls that just constantly writes about her boyfriend, so i will keep the posts about him to a minimum.  I just wanted to document this because.... because....i  don't actually know why.  Just because.  
Ilia and I on Halloween 

Okay, can we just take a moment for this. I suggested that he dress up as John Bender form the Breakfast Club, and i worked out more than perfectly.  He look exactly like him.  

XOXO

The Stars Come Out at Night

Saturn +hat = Haturn

Well hello all.  I am sad to say that Halloween is officially over now and i am very sad about it.  Halloween  has always been one of my favorite holidays.  I always get very into my Halloween costume and i try to make everyone get just as excited as i get.  Luckily I have really awesome friends that agree with me on the fact that you are never too old for Halloween.  While everyone was out partying, we were the hard core trick or treaters out in the Richmond District in the pouring rain .  It sounds unfortunate  but i have to say that i had so much fun.
The week of Halloween was crazy for us in San Francisco   The Giants won the World Series (WOOHOOO) and the parade to celebrate was decided to be on the day of Halloween.  I don't know whose idea that was but I was not very happy about it.  I felt very awkward going to the parade in my costume, but i was not about to pass up an opportunity to wear my costume.  


Solar System

Going back to my costume I was a solar system for Halloween.  I think that this was one of my favorite costumes by far.  I try very hard every year not to be that girl that just wears skimpy clothing and ears and says that they are an animal.  I worked really hard on this costume this year.  What is consists of is a sparkly sweater (Forever 21), Galaxy tutu (DIY), metallic shorts (DIY), various planet jewelry (DIY), and of course lots of sparkles to go all over my eyes.  
my wonderful friends

My friends also had very cool costumes too.  Lizzie was a sunflower (i made her tutu), Maya was a pirate, and Hanne was Crying Girl by Roy Lichtenstein.  We all try to be really creative.  


My friends at school had some cool costumes too
Tweedle dee and tweedle dum.  They are the cutest couple 
Alex from A Clockwork Orange
my wonderful fellow student gov Sophomores 
Peter Pan
Marc as Cupid
Homeless (he didn't really have to do anything different)

There were a few more that i couldn't find pictures of at the moment, but i will.  I hope that all of your Halloweens were as successful as mine was.
If there is anything specific that you want me to blog about please comment.
XOXO
