{[NOVELTY]}

As the title would suggest, a lot of NEW things are goin’ on lately… as follows:

First of all…. I am extremely over-the-moon flipping-out excited about the previously-alluded-to package that arrived at my doorstep yesterday… you see, I was looking for something to wear for graduation that would somehow mitigate the DISGUSTING polyester/nuclear waste synthetic gown, and I ran across a certain item that I was powerless to resist… BEHOLD: ALEXANDER WANG’S BEST CREATION TO DATE!

DSC05697When I saw it on sale (in my size, no less), the prospect of walking across a stage to the indelibly annoying Pomp and Circumstance suddenly seemed more palatable… [worn with Silence and Noise silk tank, Nicholas Kirkwood shoes]

DSC05679I can’t even BEGIN to describe how amazing it is even just as a tactile object– the piping is a lot more 3D than I expected, and the entire skirt has such a wonderful heft and substance to it, despite being mostly sheer! 

DSC05694I love how it looks with my Kirkwoods, but after considering the potential embarrassment factor associated with the combination of the most dangerous shoes I own, crowds of hundreds of people I know or sort of know, and a stage with no traction whatsoever, I decided to swap the Kirkwoods for my prom shoes for the actual event. I actually really like how they’d take the look of the skirt in a different direction, and they’re completely dependable for high-risk walking…

DSC05678Isn’t the giant silver zipper great? It’s one of my favorite parts.

SECONDLY. Last night, in a burst of inspiration and inexplicable energy, I overhauled my entire room and closet situation. I’m super proud of the results- look!

DSC05700These are some of my favorite dresses, vintage and otherwise…

DSC05704Shoes, purses, sweaters, stuffz…

DSC05705And here are most of the rest of my clothes. I finally got around to packing up all the winter stuff- it was taking up a LOT of space.

Thirdly, Hannah and I went on a VERY successful Goodwill shopping expedition yesterday, which yielded:

DSC05707This INSANELY AWESOME jumpsuit! I’ve been vaguely wanting a jumpsuit for a while, but had yet to find one that was right for me… this, with its minimal silver buttons, 80s (but not too 80s) shoulders and perfect fit, was just the ticket! There was a matching pink one which I’m about to go buy, as well, because even though I thought the pink was too candy-colored, on second thought it seems to be begging for a DIY bleach/dye job…

DSC05708and this great lace shirt– I can’t wait to layer it with any manner of things!

DSC05709…and finally, this oversized beaded 80s tunic/almost-but-not-quite-dress on me! I’ll have to photograph it on because it looks really cool.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST! I finally got my driver’s license yesterday! FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY (I was remiss in procuring it when I could have last November…) So Hannah and I will be mobile enough this summer for some possible day-trips to great thrifting and photoshooting destinations!

THAT WAS LONG. I APOLOGIZE.
