Dress: Forever 21
Lace jacket: GoJane

Just your average, boring outfit to buy groceries.  You can see a little bit of my doll collection peeking out.
I haven't been able to buy any in about a year and it's pretty sad.  

Sequin jacket: Forever 21
Top: A'gaci
Skirt: AEO

Taking photos indoors has not been working for me.  I need to go outside and deal with my make-up melting and the crazy bugs.
I felt like being a tacky mess this day.  I have so many pretty things that I'm always too afraid to wear.  Finding outfits for "statement pieces" like sequin jackets takes so long, and I am just so impatient. 
I still haven't picked up those pins I dropped.  Oh well.

Dress: Iron Fist
Jacket: Tov
Studded brogues: Pixie Market

I am not photogenic.  I have more bad angles than anyone I know.  A straight face makes me look old and angry, so I was practicing a subtle smile.  I think I just end up looking creepy.
My hair was so big today, probably because it could sense the humidity in the air. It worked out just fine, as it allowed me to wear this headband that is usually too dramatic for my flat hair.  

 This was my first attempt to break in these lovely shoes I bought a week ago.

They're leather, which is the worst when it comes to stiffness.  I wore them to go grocery shopping (typical adult stuff that ended up being two trips), and the back of my ankles were bleeding by the time I got home. So many of my shoes have scarred me, and yet I keep coming back.

I recently cleaned my sewing area, though you can still see the pins I dropped a few nights ago.  I'm always knocking stuff over when I'm in a rush.  The lilac ruffles you see on the floor off the to the side, is one of my WIP dresses.  It's currently on the floor, because I'm lazy and low on hangers.  Plus, it's for me, so I treat it like crap.

The wedding dress process has begun.  I tried drafting my own pattern instead of just using my sloper, and it was a mess.  Never try measuring yourself.  Always have someone else do it.  The front came out looking like a sloper, but the back was a disaster.  I gave up. My muslin ended up too big.  Apparently, I suck at eyeballing my measurements, while trying to look in a mirror.  So the second round starts now, which is basically just me doing a SBA, small bust adjustment, and hoping it works.  Curse my dress form for having bigger boobs than me.

I've been working with faux leather lately, and making two circle studded circle skirts for myself.  I hit a snag when it came to having the proper teflon foot, so they were put on hold.  But there's nothing in the way now, except me.  I eventually want to make these to sell, but I couldn't help but keep the first ones.  Expect to see it in action soon! All I need is the zipper/waistband, and to hem the lining.

I'm nothing, if not over-the-top.

Shoes: UrbanOg
Headband: Love Culture

I was melting trying to take those pictures outside.  It's difficult to tell if an image comes out right when all the sun is in your face.

I decided to pose with my dress form, though I never named it..  Nothing ever feels right, and I've never been good at dealing with potentially cheesy things.  So it goes unnamed, just a shape of a thin girl with big boobs who sometimes scares me in the middle of the night.  There's nothing quite like seeing a headless silhouette when you're half-asleep. 

I've been hating my hair/face/clothes lately, so I've been uninspired to do much.  Why couldn't I have been a hairstylist? So much has gone wrong with my hair, and it ends up ruining outfits.  Much like my face.  Soon, I'll be starting on the long process of making my wedding dress.  Wish me luck.
