Stop and Smell the Roses

Isn't this vintage skirt gorgeous? I love the bold vibrant colors! It's not actually a fishtail skirt- after putting it on I realized it didn't look quite right; a simple tuck of the front into my belt made a huge difference. I love vintage more and more each time I find something great. There's just something about finding that awesome vintage piece that isn't like shopping off the racks at a department store or elsewhere. Perhaps because it often takes quite a bit of digging through old musty stuff, that when you find a treasure it's like a reward for all your hard work. Or something like that. If you follow me on Twitter (hint,  hint) then you likely saw my other recent finds- a metallic silver snakeprint kimono and an amaaazing crochet fishnet dress. So excited to show them to you later on! In fact, I've acquired quite a bit of cool vintage stuff to stock my store with- now all I've got to do is get my store off the ground. But that's another story.

Crazy Prints

If there's one thing everyone should be able to figure out about me now, it's that I love prints. Crazy, colorful bold prints, as well as animal prints (leopard and snake). Not only do I love prints, but I love to mix them as well. Not entirely sure how I feel about today's outfit, other than I love the bright colors and of course the leopard print. It was one of those days where I'm lacking inspiration, thus I threw on whatever was closest.

Lounge Mode

I'm beyond utterly exhausted from too many nights with not enough sleep and last night's debauchery.... of eating carrot cake and playing Catch Phrase. It was my MIL's birthday yesterday, so we hung out and played a game and ate lots of food, including a carrot cake I made in a rush. I of course waited til the very last minute to make it and in doing so completely messed up the instructions and after baking, realized I used the wrong measurements as well. Came out a little too dense, but edible enough considering. But it looked pretty! If you follow me on Instagram (beneaththeglass) then you can see what it looked like...kinda like a wedding cake actually.
So anyways, this is my rainy day, too tired to get dressed look. This sweater (that kept sliding down, hence the near wardrobe malfunction) is the hugest thing and has ginormous sleeves and a corset back that constantly comes untied, but I love it for the sheer volume of it. I like big clothing for some reason, the floppier the better. And these pants actually have dragons on them, which I thought was just paisley.

>_<  Zzzzzzzzz........

On my  body: Sweater- Style Nanda

ps. See that streak of purple in my hair? Yeah, that was my latest attempt at getting it..... purple. After two different attempts, I now have my same hair but more vibrant, with random purple bits here and there. My hair looks confused. And it hates me. I exaggerate, though, it's not too too bad. But I'll probably dye over it again soon. Or shave it. Whichever comes first.
