vampires and angels, secret gardens and passageways

This outfit compromises of a bunch of current favorite pieces and some old standbys. It makes no sense, but I'm alright with that.
I started playing with my lipstick while taking photos and thought it would be fun to take some shots. Some fatalities: Got a little lipstick on my dress and I still have the drawing emblazoned on my arm despite having washed it off.
So, I've have been overindulging in National Public Radio all weekend. I can't get enough of the programs on there. Yesterday, I listened to CarTalk, Market Place, and a Prairie Home Companion. Today, I devoured Splendid Table.
I got my roots done yesterday (for my hair) and I talked to my stylist about transitioning to a nonbleach color. The pain of bleaching and the subsequent breakage is really getting to me. Before I go to a darker color, though, I have a few surprises in store, which I am pumped about!

By the Banks of the Sea

I've wanted to wear this headband since I got it two months ago. I just couldn't decide what would be the perfect outfit to wear it with. I'm not sure I found it, but I liked the idea of it.

Dress: Faith 21
Cardigan: Thrifted from Saver's
Headband: Etsy
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell

And thus begins the backlog

This is my attempt to make up for lost time. It's jumbled and most likely painful for the eyes to indulge, but I wanted to throw it out in one post and be done with it already.
This is what I wore this Monday after getting back from Spring Break.

Tee: Every Little Counts
Skirt: Thrifted from Saver's
Scarf: The Limited
Necklace: Express
Bracelet: Secondhand from garage sale
Sunglasses: Forever 21
Shoes: Colin Stuart Victoria's Secret

This is an outfit from my jaunt on the Riverwalk of San Antonio. It wasn't my favorite town. I much prefered Austin-- way more musical, way more college town, definitely more quirky and that equals very me.

I did get to have a giant (and killer) margarita in San Antonio, though.

Dress: Pinupgirl Clothing
Necklaces: Secondhand and a shop in Austin, TX
Shoes: Amiclubwear

This was the oufit that I wore before I left for San Antonio two Sundays ago.

Dress: LaRok
Tank: Old Navy
Socks: American Apparel
Boots: Forever 21
Jacket: Wet Seal
Virgin Mary Necklace: Ebay
Sunglasses: Shop in Chinatown, San Fransisco

Today was a day for whimsy. In Colorado, Easter typically signals the beginning of Spring since our seasons are a little more tumultuous. So, today I reminicsed about peppermint tea, my trip to the beach this week, drinking mead for an Oester ceremony, and adding to my long dormant dream box (from high school).

Necklace: Express
Minnie Mouse Headband: ebay
