Some more purchases from my spree at the thrift store. These glasses are my new loves, I think I've worn them every time I've stepped out of my house. They used to have lens in them, but I looked absolutely ridiculous with them in and could barely see a thing. I love how something like mandatory glasses for a 65-year-old man can be worn by a 16-year-old and look fashionable. The two blue shoes are great finds as well, I've been trying to find blue boots forever and when I saw them I grabbed them and immediately bought them. I didn't even check the size until I got home. Turns out they are a couple sizes too small, but after a bit of forcing they fit comfortably. The other shoes have a bit of a shade of purple in them, but I still love them because of the holes on the top and the short heels. I don't think I could ever wear tall heels, I'm way too clumsy for my own good.

"It's not a matter of whether the war is not real, or if it is, Victory is not possible. The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia but to keep the very structure of society intact."

As much as I love all of those blogs I recently mentioned, I have found myself on the blog of Maja Casablancas at http://www.polkadots-vodkashots.com/ too often for my own good. But she is exactly in my taste! I've gone and read every post from the beginning, a thing I have never done in all of my fashion blog reading days. Yet she reminds me so much of myself it's creepy. When she posted this about what she imagines as a perfect future, my mouth literally fell open. It's like she walked into my brain and pulled out my deepest desire and posted it on her blog. http://polkadots-vodkashots.blogspot.com/2008/06/vous-navez-pas-des-os-en-verre.html

So, after much analysis, it's come to my attention that Natasha Khan and I are both very similar. Same taste in music, sense of style... even our hair looks the same. With that said, I've concluded that we both belonged to the same Indian tribe in our previous lives.
Oh, it's logical.

Today I was looking through old pictures and stumbled across this one.

'Drunk and hot girl' refers to a song title if anyone is unfamiliar. It was a bit weird walking by people in the streets of Toronto with these shirts, who had absolutley no clue there was a song titled that. Lets just say we got some looks. And when I say looks, I sincerely mean it.
How perfect is that skirt? I'm having a stage with florals (when do I not), and this defines beauty. That woman doesn't know how truly lucky she is to have that. I hate looking at pictures from previous eras simply because I know I would never be able to live it. We live in an era where the media is so consumed in looks and drama and not the real stuff- fashion. I'm surrounded by Hollister and Abercrombie and The Hills and Hot Topic and unneccessary amounts of makeup... simply put, a society consumed in absolute trash. Oh, now I'm rambling... only I could get from the topic of a floral skirt to emos in less than three sentences.
The whole objective of this post is to show a "re-creation" of this floral skirt, with a bit of 1920s in there as well.
I have a fitness exam tomorrow that I haven't started studying for yet though, so I will catch up later. I'm contemplating leaving blogspot for devote, because there's much more flexibility in the layout. And I want a floral background.

Gah ! I can't believe I haven't seen this dress before. The lovely Kate Bosworth wore this Chanel couture dress to the Costume Institute Gala this year, and it's to die for. I mean seriously, how does one create such a thing? It's outfits like these that makes me remember how much of a genious Karl Lagerfield is. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if he goes political and runs for president.
I'd vote for him.
