0 something old, something new . . .

my adorable {& quite talented} little sister ↓ took these pictures {i really need to do a photo shoot with her because that adorable face is too cute not to share on the interwebs}. this jacket is a beauty of a vintage find i got at decades {a local, wonderful store stuffed with so many goodies you could spend days there!} & of course the leather pants shine in all their glory. the peplum detail & turned up cuffs are so delicate & feminine; which plays beautifully against the strong shoulders & heavy wool fabric. i think it's a perfect clothing item because it embodies both feminine & masculine qualities without every becoming too much of one or the other. anyway, i'll stop talking about how much i love my beautiful jacket & get back to working on my final project {finals are 2 1/2 weeks away!} which leads me to another topic, there is a 99% chance that i won't be here a lot in that time, but i'll return with full fury afterwards. i hope you are enjoying your weekend! until next time - when i'm a little less stressed {hopefully}.

0 what happens when i forget

. . . that my hair is curly & i attempt to do pin curls. it's like being 8 years old all over again, when i begged my mom to curl my hair with those pink foam curlers, you remember the ones right? overnight i dreamt of the gorgeous curls that would emerge in the morning {much like last night} only to find in the morning that your hair is a big rat's nest of curls & not in the pretty way. anyway, as a child i remember angrily washing it out with tears running down my cheeks. this time i attempted to fix it by pinning it up & now i just look like i'm going to the prom . . . better than "annie" though right?
