two faced girl

I'm fairly certain this Alexander Wang dress is what the comic book villain Two Face would wear if he were female. And had an extra $575 dollars laying around. But wait a minute, aren't super villains also usually super wealthy? Who knows, what with the economy these days. Their stock portfolios of evil have probably taken a nosedive.

it's a good life if you don't weaken

When I bought this skirt, half my heart was ready to post it on etsy, while the other, more optimistic and squishy part of my heart, was thinking perhaps I could somehow manage to pull it off. After walking about the house in it a bit, doing a few lunges, seeing how ye olde oversized calves looked in them while wearing flats, I realized that I would likely feel a mite bit self conscious slinking about town in it and would want to hide around corners/behind tall desks. It's one of those items of clothing that announces itself constantly when you wear it. Not something I normally turn my nose up at, but I've spent the school year in nondescript jeans and cardigans- heading back out into the fashion light should be a slow, easing process, not a mad dash to blindness.

Sorry for the long absence. Still wandering about in a fog of exams and worry.
