Teenagers From Mars







Shirt- Borrowed, Skirt- Urban Outfitters, Belt- DIY

Isn't this shirt marvelous?! Oh how I wish it was mine. A really good friend of mine has all these awesome shirts. As soon as I saw this one, I had to snatch it from her (along with a "Don't Mess With Texas" shirt). I have a weird love for aliens, and appreciate anything dealing with them. 
Also, how awesome is this belt? I actually made it for prom. It was a terrible experience, trying to make it. It took hours trying to make holes in the belt to screw in the spikes. But it was so worth it. People always ask me if it scratches me. Surprisingly, it isn't too uncormfortable. (Even if it was, I'd still wear it.) The only time it did scratch me was at prom, but that's because I was dancing. I obviously didn't have a date..... 

See ya losers.

Wolverine, Homecoming Queen








Hat- H&M, Shirt- Thrifted, Skirt- Forever 21

I swear, this hat has to be one of the most annoying things I own. It has a tendency to fly off my head at terrible times, like when I'm in a parking lot and a car is waiting for me to cross. Too bad I love it. 

Lately, I have been trying to stop shopping at Forever 21. Unfortunately for me and my lack of money to spend, that has been a lot harder than it should be. I mean I'm even wearing a skirt from there in this post.
There are many reasons not to support Forever 21. The main one would be that they support child labor. Forever 21 buys most of its cotton from Uzbekistan, were the government forces children to leave school and pick cotton. 
Another reason I do not support the company is because of the terrible customer service. I'm not even sure what the employees do there to be honest, because it seems like every time I go in there you can't find a single thing because nothing is in it's place. And when you ask someone working there to help you find something (who will probably act all pissed from you "bugging" them) they never know where anything is. 
Not only that, but in my opinion Forever 21 ruins a lot of trends. Their ability to present a trend in the most tacky, cheap, and horrendous way possible stuns me. For me, it is usually a good warning sign to stop wearing a trend when I see a poorly made bedazzled version of it hanging in Forever 21. 
But I think the worst thing about Forever 21 is how cheap their prices are. It is so tempting to go in there and spend $15 on a top, especially when you are unemployed like me. For a while now I've been telling myself that I need to stop shopping there, but that temptation keeps pulling me back in. Lately I've been doing pretty good. Besides the felt hat I just bought on sale...
But I swear. I'm really going to try to stop. 

If child labor is a really important issue to you, I encourage you to go to this website and sign a petition telling Forever 21 to stop supporting child labor. More information is on the website.

Bookends










Vest- Thrifted, Skirt- BCBG, Collar Necklace- Urban Outfitters, Flower Headband- DIY, Sunglasses- H&M

I'm obsessed with this headband. I actually made it for prom, but I wear it at least once a week. It just makes every outfit that more exciting.
So far over break I've done a lot of movie watching. Among the many movies I've watched, I've seen Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Restless. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is one of those movies I've been meaning to see, and it just took me forever to get around to it. I can't believe it took me that long though. It's easily one of my favorites now. And it's so weird seeing Jim Carrey doing a serious performance. The other one, Restless, I just kind of watched on a whim. While I wasn't sure what I thought of it in the beginning, by the end I was hooked. I highly recommend both movies.

This song is actually from Restless; I already loved Sufjan Stevens as it is, so I'm obsessed.

It's All Alright








Skull Shirt- DIY, Dress- Thrifted, Shoes- Urban Outfitters
FINALLY. I have graduated high school. It's actually kind of weird, because I really haven't gotten sad (except for a few exceptions where really good friends of mine started crying, which made me cry) but overall, I pictured myself sadder than I am. I definitely don't think high school will be anything need my "glory years", and if it is then I have a sad sad life. But I feel like my life is really just staring, and it's all good, and things are just kind of falling into place.
As for this outfit, its an old one. I still have a few outfits waiting to be uploaded, but I'm hoping to go back to the one outfit post a day thing that I did when I started this, so I should be caught up soon.
Also, I got a really nice camera for graduation, so once I'm caught up, my pictures will stop looking like crap!
Have a great monday! (It's finally summer, so that's finally possible!)

Oh, what a mess we've made.

Dress- Forever 21, Denim Jacket- Tunnel Vision, Flower Headband- DIY

My friend took this picture in my photo class a few days ago.
I wanted to take more pictures of this outfit, but I've had no time with finals and school ending.

Also, I'm currently obsessed with Amy Winehouse.
