I Don't Need No Valentine

Wearing I.N.C shirt dress, navy Walmart tights, AA thigh high socks, Jones New York red scarf, Payless boots, F21 fedora that I added black strip to

I think I've had my best Valentine's Day to date. No boys. No sulking. Just friends and good food. That's what it's really all about you know? This day isn't about couples only and lovey dovey valentine's day notecards. It's about the love. HA that was cheesy.
Anyways, I went out with my three girlfriends to a Japanese restaurant in town and ordered some bento box with chicken teriyaki, tempura, gyozai(or something like that..) because I'm not into the sushi craze. They think I'm crazy for not liking sushi but the taste of seaweed is just kind of odd for me. I was originally excited about heading to Friendly's for ice cream and fattening chicken with bbq sauce and a buttload of fries but we forgot how packed the place got on Valentine's Day. It's Lunar New Year also if you guys didn't know! Double holiday :) Well, I'm not sure if I consider Valentine's Day to be a holiday.
I was never really sure if I looked good in a fedora, but I saw one at Forever 21 for a crazy low price so I decided to buy it. The color strap was very summery but I found some black strap fabric and toned it down to "February weather". If that makes sense...

Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!

Splat Splat Splat everywhere


I thought it would be fun to do a post not really fashion-related and talk about what I do in my photography class right now! We actually did this last week. My class is focusing on abstract photography and to continue on from the ice project(see previous posts), we started a new project where we fill balloons with paint, put them against a wall(in a box) and throw darts at them! Seems more like painting than photography to me at first but later on we grabbed our cameras and snapped photos of the paint while it was wet and after it dried.
The best part of this is when I threw the dart and it hit the "bulls eye". You'll never know what shapes and sizes or where the paint will go, literally. I think some people still have paint on the bottoms of their my two friends in the photo. One girl threw the dart so hard that the paint flew out towards her and almost splattered all over her. That would have been funny...but poor clothes!
I'll update some of the photographs when I'm done photoshopping them for my class :)

A Pop of Red, White and Blue

Wearing Banana Republic cardigan, Target pocket tee, Giancia (from Burlington Coat Factory) coat, H&M scarf, Bakers boots, H&M pants

I didn't quite notice my patriotic spirit today. I never notice these kinds of things..most times because I get dressed five minutes before I have to grab a toasted croissant(this is on the good days when there is breakfast available), my tumbler of tea, and my backpack and head out to the train station. The thing I dislike the most is that dawn is the coldest time of the day, which makes sitting and waiting for the train not so fun in the winter. Basically this is as fun as my outfits get on a weekday. I consider wearing this one coat exciting compared to my royal blue puffy coat that covers my entire upper body. It's so warm though so I don't regret buying it at all! If you live in Massachusetts, always invest in one of these.
I picked up this cardigan a while back but never really wore it because I thought I "lost" it. Oops. I forgot how awesome the buttons are--they were the main reason I bought it! They're little pearls and kind of remind me of Christmas. Also got some boots from Bakers. I like how they resemble oxfords when I put my jeans over them. It's a win-win situation either way. The only thing is that the quality isn't top-notch, but I guess I can't be too picky because I purchased them for fifty bucks. Is it weird that I love the way it makes a slight clackity clack sound when I walk in the hallway?
