ode on a grecian gown

I bought this dress for $20 (marked down from $58!) at Old Gold back in September. I’ve been meaning to blog it every week since then, but I’ve only just gotten around to altering the hem. It was literally dragging on the floor, and I took it up and bubbled it. (My finals are over, and I have an obscene amount of dress-up time on my hands.)

I don’t think I’ll be wearing this out of the house for a good few months (this dress’s material is so smooth and silky that I wouldn’t trust it against the elements), but I thought it was such an awesome look that I had to blog it immediately.

Yet another piece I bought months ago and have never worn. This awesome little blazer came from the $1 rack at Battery Street Jeans. I should really keep better track of my clothes; I have some fantastic stuff.

I’m really happy with my photos lately. My modeling skills are in good working order. I’m looking forward to a few professional shoots over winter break.

Notice that my nails are blue! I’m trying to branch out from my usual color palette. Blue, orange, and white are pretty new to me, but I’d like to get more comfortable in them.

Remember the shoes I won?

You get another holiday song! One of my favorite carols sung by one of my favorite artists.

I aspire to be a bright-eyed girl in a big city, even though I wear glasses and live in what amounts to a hole in the ground.
