"are you girls going to a flapper party?"
Thursday, June 17, 2010 @ 12:36 PMI went out to eat with pat/mike/minette and minette and i were both wearing headbands horizontally. we should have called to check? how do you handle that situation? you pretend like you don't match and then a waitress asks if you are going to a flapper party.
..but guys, if i didn't wear the headband i just looked like someone in college that owned one pixies album and made hemp jewelry in my dorms. this dress is too college-art w/o it.
know your audience? is that offensive?
@ 11:55 AMdemographics n. (used with a pl. verb) The characteristics of human populations and population segments, especially when used to identify consumer.
i was going to try to vaguely summarize the fusion of neon, and fashion, and urban life, or i guess i could cite this really-out-of-touch, kind of offensive article.
"rise of the black hipster"
i have to say, even mentioning Asher Roth, the fucking poster boy for a series of never-to-be-published articles im writing in my own head titled (more like ENtitled..am i right? ba-dum-ch) "WHITE PEOPLE ARE THE WORST", made this article hurt. almost as much as it's handling of individual agency.
with that link working as the summation, i guess i'll share an outfit that got loads of compliments from "these ppl". You know that this is a joke right? *FACE PALM* This is all one big fucking joke.
Is this whole thing sounding like an, "Well, I'm not racist but..."? most likely? well here is the long and the short of it.. "Well, I'm not racist but... my clothes matched and there were hints of sexuality?"
p.s. my favorite "compliment" went as follows;
"liz, i really like your outfit today a lot. when usually i.."
"..don't like it at all?"
"no, i usually only like PARTS of it. i usually only like PARTS of your outfits."

what? were you expecting a kefeyah and gold hoops? that IS racist.
can summer be okay?
@ 8:37 PMcan anything?
I guess summer wasn't a bummer when it was a break from the bs of high school. Well fuck high school, its over forever and i don't have to like anything about summer, but i can miss the beauty of nature that used to be a part of my life? THESE COLORS ARE REAL?! I DON'T BELIEVE IT!
I used to go outside?
This photo(which i saw because i am a fb creep. duh, follow along.) opened the flood gates of memories that were trying to trick me into thoughts of poor health and misery.
"maybe i sweat more now because im less healthy."
"maybe summer is fun if you have a positive attitude."
"maybe everyone is an idiot and i was just an idiot once too." (common life theme.)
i have photobuckets full of dumb photos of "summer fun". but they are just nature fun.
i am anti-summer, and i stand by this decision. No amount of cut off shorts, or american flag memorabilia, or fireworks displays will change my opinion as of this moment.
Since i referenced them, here is some wierd shit i found in my own photobuckets?
LULZ @BEING 17!!
More Recent Summer.

this tunic is just two layers of black sheer, but how do you show that in a photo on a rainy day with an iphone camera? no really, tell me.
@ 5:15 PMSo I was sick throughout spring, and with a few 90° days sprinkled in, and now it's summer?
Its rainy and dreary everyday. My old creaking joints are esp. creaky.
THIS LOOKS COOLER THAN IT FEELS/!!11!!/!!!!1
Here's some stuff I've worn since it's been warm?
(note the green tights, this was on purpose. lulz.)
(last day before spring sickness ravaged my life)
leggings/tunic/shoes-F21,blazer-Zara,DeeryLou tote-Hot Topic
I had good rings, and this blazer has great detailing on the shoulders, but photos at 2 am, on your way home in the rain, inevitably lead to arguments in the streets.
(90° and muggy? cool)
I look like Link a lot?
dress-Amer Aper, boots-Wet Seal, necklaces-thrift
(50° and rainy? SURE SURE!)
