Star Wars Day



Happy Hump Day, kidlets! And, don't forget, it's also Star Wars Day! May the fourth be with you, etc. It took me a while to get that one, but once I got it, it was amazing.

I'm not incredibly impressed with my outfit today; too much black. But at the same time I love my hair and jewelry, so we'll say it balances out. I basically haven't taken off these shoes since I got them, either! So cute and comfy, and they go with pretty much everything ever. My quest for the perfect pair of black flats is over, even before I knew it had begun. How about that!







I'm wearing: UO dress, H&M cardi, Blowfish shoes, F21 earrings, necklace from street stall in Florence.


Don't know what's going on with my eyes in that photo, but it made me lol, so I posted it here.

Notice how I specifically said my necklace was from a street stall in Florence. This is in order to inconspicuously brag about the fact that I was in Italy at one point in my life, and was even cool enough to buy something from a street stall. I mean isn't that why we all put that shiz under our outfit photos? TO SHOW HOW COOL WE ARE. Well I went to flipping Florence!

But enough of that. In about fifteen minutes I will be placing an order for my one-way ticket to London. How about them apples? Braggity brag brag. YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO HEAR ABOUT MY OVERSEAS ADVENTURES.

Okay I'll shut up now, I love you guys so much! Thank you a billion for all the positive feedback about my tattoo, I'm so so glad you all approve! I'd hate to have gotten a shitty tattoo that you'd all have to suffer through every time you came to my blog. ♥

I just discovered this whole Star Wars Day thing today. Very clever.

JennaStevie said...

First of all, I love your tattoo. It is wonderful, and from what I can see the shading is perfect and its just...great. I wish I had known about the Star Wars thing before I got dressed for work, or I would have completely geeked out. I don't think there's too much black in your outfit, I think the necklace brightens it up.

Rachel said...

Are you seriously getting a one-way ticket to London? OMG WE WILL HAVE TO MEET FOR THE FIRST TIME IN TEA-A-GO-GO LAND. If you're still going to be there in September that is, because I will be showing up in September and not leaving for at least a year. Let's have tea and scones and stalk Matt Smith together!

By all means, keep bragging so I can live vicariously through you! I'm crossing my fingers for some killer London posts!

I was actually just thinking about the outfit details thing the other day... I get strangely annoyed when I constantly see "c/o insertcompanyhere" all over the place on blog posts. Not like for one item.... I'm talking everything they're wearing. Sometimes I do feel like they do it to show off their self proclaimed coolness. But that's probably jealousy talking. :) Im just poor as hell lately haha.

I don't know how anyone could hate that tattoo. It's got so much personality to it!

P.S. I <3 that Dress

P.S.S. Ever since the Steve Sloth conversation, I've been seeing sloth stuff everywhere. It makes me giggle.

Yahoooooooo London!!! I'm so excited you got your ticket (i saw on twitter), now I need to start planning a trip over there to visit!! :p I like your Florence necklace a lot. I bought leather sandals from a stall there but they stretched out BIG TIME when I got 'em wet and I had to give them to a big-footed friend ): This outfit is real great though. You should wear it again. I Iove that red color and your hair is perfect.

Also I lol-ed at "may the fourth be with you" once I got it. ha!

color shows said...

I'm not going to lie, it made me super happy to see your tattoo sticking out of your sleeve. I am living vicariously through you because I'm not allowed to get any tattoos until after I finish school, okay?

Anyway, I think you look adorable! I love me some black.

Lee said...

I agree with color shows, the tattoo looks great peeking out from under your sleeve!
The necklace is great btw. Brag all you want! =]


And in relation to the teeth in a jar on my page that you commented on: I spent a whole day in the science museum in London. They had a section about people's fears where they had all of these representations of the fears put into jars. Fear of teeth, fear of marriage, fear of spiders, fear of (would you believe there's actually a fear of...) left-handed objects, etc. It was amazing. When you go to London I strongly advise the science museum =]

Your hair DOES look awesome in these pics! And I like this outfit, I don't think it has too much black. Then again, I wear a lot of black.

I am SO EXCITED for you to go to London so I can live vicariously through you.

Jenni Wells said...

I totally forgot about Star Wars day until today! Oh, the things I could have done.

That dress is super fucking cute. By the way.... I really like your new tattoo. It's very well done, unique, and has good placement.

Yeah, that "may the fourth" thing probably shouldn't be so funny, but it just is.

Also, I love that outfit. Lots of black, but it's just gorgeous!

I actually love this outfit, the colours are great, even with all the black - I think it adds to the outfit! :) I can't wait to hear about all your london adventures!
