FASHION // go-go girl
dress: bridesmaid's dress from my parents' wedding, via my godmother // boots: 1960s, via my grandmother // silver bangles: via my grandmother
Like my ridiculous pose? I don't know how to look like Twiggy. I just don't.
I'm pretty pumped that Mad Men is making the 60s all the rage. I have some pretty intense 60s stuff. And it sort of works with my intense 90s stuff. Booyah.
My grandmother got married in a dress very similar to this one. It's in our basement (where else?) and someday I'll show it to you. It's frickin adorable. And short.
These poor boots have been worn by three generations of my mother's family by now. Do they count as go-go boots? I want them to count as go-go boots. Because go-go boots are fantastic.
We had our first onstage rehearsal for Grease today... I'd lost my voice (cold, flu, whatever it is) and couldn't speak above a whisper, so I drank one of those giant XXX Vitamin Waters — you know, the ones with enough in them to sate a herd of elephants? That helped.
Also, that's why there's a pen in my hair. I don't know if you can see it in the photo... but this is how I've been wearing my hair for the past week or so. Otherwise I have a tendency to lose my pencils, because they're all about as long as my pinky finger.
Plus, I got a Facebook on Wednesday (finally). So for those who asked about it forever and a day ago, there is now an of horsefeathers page.
Oh, and my birthday's in like a week and a half. Anybody know any good movies playing in theaters right now? Dream House looks good. I love horror films...
PS: Important note... the weeklygiveaway is officially discontinued. It's way too much stress for me to be organizing it all the time, on top of regular posts and drama and school and the gazillion clubs I've joined this year. Last week's winner was #113, Marina... go ahead and email me!
Don't worry, there will still be random huge giveaways. It's almost more fun that way. Right? Righhhtt?
