Have I been really sick or given up on life?

I've been really sick, I promise.

Classic Style

I think I sort of look like Amelia Earhart or a student from the 30's.
Sweater: Thrifted from Tzedek
Leather jacket: Polo Ralph Lauren
Skirt: Gap
Shoes: Lady Comfort
The jacket- like it? It's from the free bin, a place where students leave their unwanted clothing. And sometimes there's some pretty awesome stuff, like this jacket, a baby blue Gap trench coat, a pink and blue silk tie dye scarf and long, flowing hippie dresses.

Convocation Style: Yes, I did wear clothes

My school has a tradition (much to the chagrin of the administration and faculty) that on Convocation we dress like skanks...with themes. This year, Tyler House went green.

We seniors didn't really follow the theme.

And then we walked over to listen to the Convocation speech, while screaming house cheers:
"Spicy salsa in a pot, Tyler girls are wicked hot!"
"Tyler, Tyler, Tyler, our walls are filled with hay. If you light a candle, our house will burn away"

And then, when we realized Convocation had started 5 minutes earlier:
"Tyler house is really late, that's because we're @#$%^&* great!"

And then Convocation...speeches, cheering after almost every sentence, whistle blowing.

And then we came back to the house and took more pictures. I was sad because this is my last Convocation...

But I still managed to have fun afterwards!

My outfit:
Slip: Thrifted at The Village Discount Outlet
Hat: Romer (from Argentina!)
Shoes: Mootsies Tootsies
Lipstick: MAC

Kayleen's outfit:
PLEATED (yes, pleated) garbage bags
Target bag top
The girl is a genius.

The typical gaucho hat from Argentina. Didn't know that

My masterpiece- Room 303

Like my room? You'd better, 'cause I spent nearly two weeks getting it to be perfect. It's cozy (code for small, but welcoming) and people love spending time in it.
Why is my room featured on my fashion blog? I've planned this for days more than any outfit and it also represents my sense of style.

Back to school, end of summer lameness

Mint blazer: Thrifted at Tzedek
Undershirt: J Crew
Shorts: Forever 21
Shoes: BDG
I am back at school now and have loads of amazing wardrobe pictures to share. Promise I won't abandon this blog again, unless I have good reasons, like I did during the summer (i.e. fellowship application, hot boy, lots of great comics from the public library, biking).

Turqoise formal

I bought this dress in Once, at a Hippies-R-Us. Well, not really, but it did sell a lot of unflattering peasant shirts. The woman who sold me the dress was nice, but very dumb. She praised the dress, but was shocked that people in the United States speak English. She also thought I was a native Spanish speaker, from Columbia, until I told her otherwise. She asked me ridiculous questions, unashamed by her lack of knowledge- if I was scared of flying on planes, if I had a boyfriend, etc. But I guess it doesn't take much brains to help someone pick out a beautiful dress.
