Fashion Day 3 + Lost and Found

Like I keep saying, my dorm is the worst spot for photos. Not mention it was cold, gloomy, and raining today - so not much in the way of natural light. Still, I did the best I could. It was exam day! And group presentation day! So I dressed up in very very casual Lolita. 

Don't I look cheerful? I have to go out in the rain in this lovely getup. 

By the way, can you guess which bed is mine. ^_~

I didn't have anything with which to secure my giant hair bow to my head, and sadly I really wish I had. I instead pinned it to my bag and somewhere between my dorm hall and my classroom it fell off. Luckily, one of my classmates found it and returned it to me later. I'm glad, I don't know what I would have done if it couldn't be located....cry some more maybe.

Oh look, it's a school spirit badge! Don't ask...

I love the print on this Bodyline dress. So glad Chris bought it for me!

I wore these sexy lacy tights with my biker boots, but the skirt kept getting caught up on them so I later changed it out for black knee socks. ^_^

My fall break has officially started and I'm soooo happy. I've already packed up a good chunk of my stuff and now I'm just waiting on the motivation to work on a paper before relaxing until Chris gets here. Have a good rest of the week, everyone!

Work Appropriate Costumes for Halloween

Not everyone has the luxury of being able to wear a Halloween costume to work, but if you're employed in an office with a creative culture or laidback bosses you might be able to get away with something both modest and spooky OR mature but cute.


Elevated Elvira

A simple black dress, a wicked winged liner, and a bold red lip bring this understated Goth Queen look into the office without raising too many eyebrows.

On Wednesday's We Wear Black

A black dress with a white collar and some braids - you really can't go wrong with Wednesday Addams. You can easily recreate this look with a white button down worn under a simple shift dress.

A Spoonful of Sugar

You likely already have the collared white blouse and black midi skirt to comprise this easy Mary Poppins look. A trip to the local thrift store will help you procure a cute red bow and a black hat -- but don't forget a frilly parasol and oversized bag!


Youthful, bright, and totally mod. A …

⛤ How I Fell In Love With Crystals ⛤

When I was eight years old, I accompanied my grandmother to Washington state to visit my uncle, who lived out there with his wife at the time. While there, we took a trip up to Mount Rainier - driving up the windy, fogged-covered roads in an old pick-up truck and stopping for herds of silently moving deer crossing the pavement. There were a couple of stops along the way to admire a small waterfall or nab a photo of the rushing creak water under a bridge. 
But it was up at the top, inside the gift shop, that I found something that spoke to me.
There was a large bin of gemstones, each of them available for about $0.25. I remember digging through pieces of jagged chunks of amethyst and quartz until my tiny child fingers wrapped around the perfect one.

Like pulling the sword from the stone, I was meant to have this particular piece of quartz. Rounded and cloudy at the end, with a sharp pyramid tip, it was exactly the kind of quartz crystal you'd expect to see at the end of a magic wand o…

Etiquette Rules I (Personally) Find Pointless

Etiquette is a tricky realm in which to maneuver. Often, it varies from place to place and country to country. What's polite in one area of the world (slurping your noodles in Japan = 🖒) could be considered unfathomably rude elsewhere. So, let's approach this from a modern, millennial etiquette perspective, shall we?

Five Etiquette Rules I (Personally) Find Pointless

1.) Handwritten Thank You Notes- I try to be an environmentally friendly and conscious individual, truly I do. And I think that is perhaps why I have such a beef with "thank you" cards. Actually, any cards. Holiday cards, birthday cards, get-well-soon's all just paper. And it's all going to end up in the trash or recycling.

That tree died for something I glanced at for 30 seconds. If you truly want to thank me for something or wish me well, just email or text. Let me know in person next time you see me. If we are bosom buddies, you may even have permission to call and tell me.

2.) A…
