First of all: my zebra socks. They make me happy, no matter how tacky they are! Plus, aren't heels-with-socks "in" right now? Okay, okay, so I actually just needed a statement heel but am currently searching for one and this was my substitute. But still! It makes a statement, doesn't it? Not sure what kind, though....
"Shayli, you really need to get away from that stump." Hey, now. This stump and I have a connection. Er, not really. But this is where I've found the best light at sunset (ah, love that light, so no, I'm never going to shut up about it! Bwahaha!), so until I find another place with good lighting (I'm searching, I promise!), I'll probably stick with the stump.... Haha, geddit, "stick" with the "stump"? That was a horrible pun. Sorry.
My best friend Haley and I went thrifting today! [Haley doesn't have a fashion blog, but you can find her amazing writings here!] We only had a half-day of school (lucky Haley had no exams today, actually, so she got to stay home :P) so we went out to lunch and then ran across the street to the local Goodwill. People tend to give me a certain look when I say I shop at Goodwill, but I try to brush it off. Because, for one, there is absolutely nothing wrong with shopping at a thrift store. I don't have bottomless pockets, and I prefer to purchase more trendy items or pieces I'll modify at a cheaper price, and spend more money buying quality classic pieces that will last. Which, ahem, I tend not to do too often. Maybe I should hitch a ride with Jena the next time she drives an hour to the nearest outlets! Anyways. You can find fantastic things at thrift shops, if you dig deep enough. Haley snagged a Barbara Streisand record for only a couple dollars, and I found the coolest vintage hat for super cheap as well! I also bought a child's denim jacket that I plan to de-sleeve and wear as a vest (oh, come on, everyone needs a tacky 90's vest!), and a strange dress-top-skirt combination thing that I'm going to make into a skirt and a separate tunic-top-thing. And a German shirt! Yep, it says "Germany" on it. I'm just.... *so* cool.
lots more on my blog!
