i am just going to put outfit and personal posts on my other tumblr, it’s too complicated having two tumblrs. i keep putting cool posts in my likes and then it’s annoying transferring them over here. i could just reblog them from myself but blah to that. anyway, if you still want to see outfits and tights and shoes you can head to onlyimage.tumblr.com. i do post a lot more there in general, although i’m trying not to reblog as much as i did before and i’m trying to put up actual content.
i have a large box full of things that are really nice but which i no longer want. therefore, i would like to find someone to do a trade with. i would like the trade to be roughly equal in quality and size (i.e. i won’t trade this box for a few pins and prints or a single t-shirt or anything similar). the picture of all the items is above, the trade includes:
- lots of zines and a dame darcy paper doll book which is adorable
- vintage jewelry galore, including pretty rhinestone pins and an umbrella pin
- badges/buttons i made myself, which are cat and batman themed
- a silk vintage polka dot blouse (size medium/largeish)
- size 6 metallic oxfords, i can leave these out if they are the wrong size, i also have a pair of red sequined fake chuck taylors if those are preferred
- vintage wooden cat hanger (child size, makes a good wall decoration)
- handmade velvet muff
- vintage velvet rose mittens
- vintage legwarmers and never used eyeball socks
- lots of prints from etsy, including the black apple paper doll and silhouette prints
- cute little notebooks
- a few new jewelry pieces including a black balloon, starfish and an anchor necklace, i may add more later, i have a LOT of random jewelry and hair accessories, mostly cutesy-faux-lolita shit with bows and pearls, animals, clouds, etc., let me know if you’re interested
- if you have really great stuff to trade i also have a bunch of mini pullips and dal dolls, i’d be willing to include one or two
i will be more likely to trade with you if i already know you somehow or we have chatted through tumblr. just message me or comment here if you’re interested, i’ll pick someone by end of next week! i do have feedback for selling things/trading if you wish to see it, just ask.
so i got offered a different job for a fair amount more money, and accepted. it’s much more corporate but i will definitely learn more, i feel pretty good about it. it is weird that i am a yuppie and my boyfriend is a yuppie, it is not what i expected out of life. OH WELL THESE THINGS HAPPEN.
wearing j crew chambray heart pocket shirt (it was on sale, i never buy anything for full price from j crew), zara cat skirt (it’s really see through) and bass saddle shoes.
i met kate ross (distinguishedcravat.com) at brooklyn fish camp a week ago! she came up to me to give me a button and said she loved my saddle shoes. i may email her to say hi, she seems awesome and had on a really amazing outfit and was carrying a bible around.
my stuffs, please buy! seriously, you will get a really good deal, lindsay always sets low starting bids.
vintage sunglasses, studded shorts, silk and sequin scarves, fifi lapin!
i’ve been pulling out more and more crap to sell. going to sell those candela star oxfords and my sam edelman boots, probably my ray bans, i don’t want to own any shit anymore. please check out ebay!
inspired by jessica (perma-scowl.tumblr.com) i just bought a bunch of pins. i went through an anti-brooch period because of not wanting holes in my clothing but i just went back to not giving a fuck and buying lots of cute cheap badges. i’m already over summer and it’s barely begun. i do not feel happy without at least two layers on, and i ruin everything i sweat on.
waiting to hear back about one last job interview, i’m really stressed right now.
oh my god you guys, yesterday i had to take a MICROSOFT WORD AND EXCEL TEST AND A TYPING TEST. i realize that this is normal for certain kinds of jobs but i have never had to do it before and i did badly even though i am good at all 3 of those things! this is because the test would not let you use shortcuts (i mean … those are the best ways to do things) and they also wanted you to know really obscure things like saving font styles and letter formatting, which i haven’t done for years. i think i am done with random interviews, they are just draining my energy and keeping me from enjoying my last weeks of unemployment. so that means i have the dream job to follow up on next week and one interview this week and otherwise the new job starts on a trial basis soon.
it got less hot so i can occasionally wear long sleeves. i’m wearing american apparel floral chiffon shirt and skirt with miu miu swallow belt (ebay find) and jeffrey campbell oxfords. i know this outfit is super old lady and in retrospect i should have probably worn a normal belt instead … i just really wanted one thing that was a weird creepy upholstery floral, and i have become obsessed with matching sets of clothes, like jackets and dresses and shirts and bottoms made of the same fabric. of course, this means i tried on a JUMPSUIT because in my mind i have magically grown about a foot and no longer have curves to get in my way. i will just say that it did not work and leave it at that. i still think i might keep an eye out for weird drapey pants and matching blouses, rachel comey has a beautiful set but naturally i can’t find my size.
TELL ME WHAT I SHOULD WATCH NOW THAT I’M DONE WITH TWIN PEAKS. i am sort of watching x-files since they have it on netflix but the boy is not interested in that show. of course i will watch FIRE WALK WITH ME but it will be very bittersweet. i miss dale cooper’s giant chin already.
so i did get the job. hurrah! i have a few reservations but i am being allowed to take it on a trial basis, and after advice from close friends i feel ok about it. hurrah for employment! it took me about a month to a month and a half, which i feel is pretty good.
here is a very unseasonal outfit. i am so bad about figuring out weather. i do check weather.com but what i should really do i stick my head out of the window. this particular day was not that hot but it was very humid, and it is foolish to wear leather when it is humid.
wearing: bat for lashes bear shirt (the bear is holding a swan’s neck in his mouth, i do like this band but i like the shirt graphic even more), that black jacket lindsay gave me with the front panel zipped off, TBA leather studded skirt (i stalked this forever until it went on clearance), and yes, the creepers.
i haven’t really been wearing interesting outfits lately, mostly because it got so damn hot. i figured out how to put my hair in a topknot and finished cleaning the house and doing hostess things like putting towels and a fan out. such are the accomplishments of my typical day. going to see x men first class tonight, just because it’s getting decent reviews and i am determined to see at least 2 stupid summer movies and i am entirely uninterested in any of the other blockbusters coming out. i will probably go see the harry potter movie due to inertia and the need to have something to discuss with vaguely-known acquaintances.
oh, and my cat caught a mouse and figured out how to climb up on the top of my tall dresser!! i am very proud of her and bought her a can of salmon as a reward.
