Sad Songs

Pattern matching (and clashing) is my absolute favourite, and nothing sends my heart all aflutter like polka dots on polka dots. Totally dreamy. I'm also really into this dark purple lipstick. I'd been eyeing it since the summer and finally decided to just buy it. Is it weird to think it looks especially good against my new orange-y hair? No? Awesome.

 On Saturday night one of my very good friends had an art opening for her solo print show, and two other friends (who are a noisy punk/queer performance art team) performed at it. I know I mentioned this is my last post, but my friends are REALLY talented. Like, damn. I wish I had photos of the art show and performance to share, but it seems I'm just a vain bitch who's really into my outfits. (Or I'm always pretty shy about bringing my camera places and snapping photos and such. One or the other.) After the opening, we headed to bar for the appropriate amount of drinks and lots of silly dancing. I ended the evening by complimenting all of my friends profusely before heading home, which is a pretty decent drunk-habit to have if you ask me.

I wore this the other night to a queer open mic event, where I shared some spoken word and totally swooned over how talented everyone was. After the open mic we headed to the gay bar for a pint and got sucked into karaoke (which should really be called queer-aoke but nobody takes my advice). I sang Ke$ha because I love her, but nothing compared to two of my friends doing Sonny and Cher's The Beat Goes On. It was SO good. Like I said, my friends are talented.

 I got this sweater from Ricki's recently and it's not really my style (pastels?! pull-over sweaters?!) but the colour is perfect and it's so sweet.I found this perfect leather skirt for $6 from Value Village a few weeks ago and felt like I had died and gone to heaven. It also convinced me to start blogging again. Really! Look at my facebook post from that day as proof!

Blogging, take two (or..something like that)

Hello folks. I've missed you.

I've been thinking a lot about blogging. Seriously, a lot. And for all that thinking, I can't quite articulate my feelings on the topic. I don't have very much money. I'm not a good illustrator and I don't have (or know how to use) fancy cameras or photoshop or anything that would make my blog look more "professional." And I think I'm okay with that. I'm a twenty year-old broke queer art student with two part-time jobs, more responsibilities than I can often handle, mental health issues, a fat body, and a disorganized closet exploding with cheap clothes in a wide array of patterns. I think blogging as a medium, particularly fashion blogging, encourages people to create a facade - only showing the newest clothes, the best put together outfits, the most beautiful aspects of their life. And that's okay. It's just not for me.

All that being said, I've missed blogging. I liked having a place to share my weird broke femme outfits and I really liked being able to connect with other similarly-minded folks. So, I guess I'm giving blogging another go.

I also am in the process of trying to update my blog layout. So, I guess I'll see how that works.
