I left my head and my heart on the dancefloor.

Today, we had that freak hailstorm that I was talking about. Nonetheless, I finally wore out the H&M dress that I got this winter. I have been excited about this outfit for months. I borrowed a jacket of my mother's against her will and wore it with some shoes that she gave me last year.

My mother also took these pictures and suggested that I stand on top of an unstable broken tree.

Glitter, you're my lover.

It's a good thing I have such a terrible shopping addiction because I always have fabulous new shoes to write about! The latest being:

I now officially own two pairs of shoes covered entirely in glitter... Awesome! I had my eye on these Forever 21 glitter boots for quite a while, but I decided to go for it this weekend and they arrived in the mail this morning. It's really fun ordering things online for me because you get to open the package like it's your birthday. I was concerned about them because I didn't get to try them on and, since they were on sale, they can't be returned. But they fit marvelously, look fantastic and are quite comfortable.

I must have been asleep for days.

Hey! The weather has been fabulous for the past two days, so you can bet that I am taking advantage of it before we have another freak hailstorm or something.

The neighbors were definitely watching me traipse around the yard with my camera, so I took pictures quickly. I look a little goofy, but I should be used to that by now.

I wish I had worn different shoes because I had to climb over a fence to get into a cemetery for one of my classes and they were filled with quite a bit of dirt, but, whatever. They were discounted at Old Navy because my good friend Angelo is a respected Old Navy employee. My mother recently gave me this shirt, so this is its debut. And that's what that is all about. Look at the weather! It's almost time for me to start complaining about the heat!

She obliterated everything she kissed.

Alright! This post is all about excellent rock 'n' roll women with fantastic style and fantastic music. Here are some that I find most inspirational:

Babes in Toyland

Jack Off Jill


Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs

The Runaways

Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane

This has been the first of a few Excellent Rock 'n' Roll Women inspirational posts, probably, as I could most likely go on for quite some time on this topic. Until then!

Eternal and infernal.

Hey! As promised a short time ago, here is my most recent shoe purchase:

They're fabulous studded ankle boots! I had been lurking them on the Journey's website for a long time because, although they were on sale, I was hoping they'd go on sale a bit more. But, by the time I went down to the actual store, they weren't out on the shelves anymore. Luckily, though, I knew exactly what they were called and who made them (due to the website stalking, of course) and someone was able to find them for me. I can't wait to wear them for real.

And, this has been a Quick Shoe Update. See you soon!

Another moon on an everyday night.

This week has been rather busy, so what better to do than waste some time posting an outfit! This is what I wore today to meet with a group from my literary nonfiction class to work on our Edward Abbey project. And it's raining!

I really like bright colors. And mixing obnoxiously bright colors. I didn't photograph what I'm wearing under the jacket, but it's just a black tank top. The black tank top and black boots from Target help even out the turquoise of the jeans and the neon green of the jacket, I think. Pretty sweet colors overall, I'd say!

It just suits us well.

Welcome to February, everyone. Since I had plenty of time to spend watching Marilyn Manson videos over and over, I figured that I should take some goofy pictures of the Manson-inspired outfits I've been traipsing around town in.

Yesterday, I wore this lovely ensemble to work because I was able to see the sun, finally.

I told you these pictures were goofy. This is because I start work around noon and do not get home until one or two a.m., which is when this photoshoot took place. Also, I am naturally goofy-looking at times.

This outfit is composed of a Target dress that my grandmother bought me when my luggage was lost at the airport and my orange Doc Martens. Basically, I was trying to recreate the vibe of classic Twiggy Ramirez.

And that's what I'm up to these days. I also bought some new heels that I'll excitedly post about soon!
