sunday rewind / week no.2

1/rewatching Marie Antoinette for the millionth time 2/a sequined hair ruffle
3/pretty clouds on a day at the beach 4/shopping downtown wearing wedges like a crazy beotch

I quit my second job this week. It felt awesome. It was at the Gap and the hours were becoming so meager and unpredictable that it just didn't feel worth the trouble anymore. A weight has been lifted and I see the light!
And I will also feel the light. The lightness. On payday. And in my wallet. Ugh what have I done.

Have a great Sunday!

a proper romper

I apologize for the plethora of obvious face crops in this post. They are due to the recent mistake of dying my hair; the result of which was a godawful swirl of muddish brown and pure black. I loath the whole thang and definitely will be lightening it up soon. I was going for Adriana Lima, but ended up with the little girl from The Grudge.

I mean, tale as old as time right.

This romper was a smokin' deal during the winter end of season sale at Zara. Its draped silhouette and silky material gave off a sophisticated vibe that caught my eye right away. However, once in the fitting room, I discovered its hamartia. Shawty got hella low when they were designing this. I'm talking bust out everywhere/v-neck for days, too much for daytime/not the best for a quick run to Target. Like, I'd call it a wardrobe malfunction à la Janet Jackson, but the police may have another name for it. So for now, we safety pin.
Jacket/ GAP
Romper/ Zara
Wedges/ H&M
Ring/ Ardene

Upon wearing it in public, I also came to find that this romper is actually crazy short. I guess I was too busy pinning up the front to notice the serious leg action going on below. Let me tell you, there was no bending it like Beckham today; my various body parts were too busy fighting to break free. But fashion is all about freedom of expression right? Maybe this romper takes that belief and transforms it into a concrete reality.

The reality that half my arse is hanging out? Possibly.

Sadly it felt like this week was just a vicious circle of work, sleep, work more. Very bittersweet. Bitter in the way of photo worthy opportunities and sweet where saving for school is concerned. Hopefully this dull week was still worth a post though; I was really looking forward to starting a new blog series! I also started binge watching Breaking Bad. I'm waaaay late to the party, but still having an awesome time.


Why you should listen: It's a perfect summer jam for indulging in melancholia and being sad about boys and life.
