Hey guys! So I know I posted this whole style direction post and everything but really I just decided that I want to wear ripped band tees and glitter all the time and really fresh Nikes and a lot of smudgy mascara and ten pounds of chapstick. that is my new style direcition Also, I was thinking of moving this whole shebang over to tumblr. I think it might be easier for my readers to follow and repost stuff there, and it is also easier for me to post things in a more casual way and also ON THE GO! What do you think? <3 MUCHO LOVEO

How are you on this fine spring day? I can literally hear birds chirping outside of my window. Even the grating sound of someone continuously pressing the buzzer in my neighbor's apartment can't annoy me today.
That being said, it is finals right now, and I kind of feel like I'm going to keel over and explode at any minute now. If you are in the middle of finals as you read this, good luck and remember to breathe!
In the spirit of spring time, I've decided to write up a little Style Direction post featuring my Spring and Summer 2012 style that I'm feeling right now.
For lack of a better name, I'm going to temporarily title it
Wicked Watercolor Riot GURL
or maybe Wicked for short. Maybe FROTH- frothy fresh goth. Watercolor Wicked? There we go. I like them both.
So anyway, forging on! When it comes to fashion, (and life), I crush on everything. I can't help but mix a million elements into my personal style. My ADHD addled art student brain sops up everything and mixes it in the blender to spit out a darkly glittering cocktail of INSPIRING FEELINGS.
The recipe for my Watercolor Wicked style is as follows:
Take the fabrics, jewelry, and silhouettes of the First War era glam, dunk it in the colors of a Kathy Dennis Impressionist Watercolor, and sprinkle in the accessories of a true riot punk.
Use as many OLD THINGS as possible to achieve this look. (And remember, darling, time is elastic, and old is subjective.)

what i'm into for summer: fluffy shorts under fifties dresses, shredded and cropped tees, Peter Pan collars, fresh-to-death colorful sneakers, gypsy jewelry, comic book tee-shirts, spiked accessories, knee socks, black, pastels, flowers in my hair, snapbacks and baseball caps.
What's your style inspiration this summer?

Woahhhh! It's been a minute and a rough month, but I'm back, and Blogger looks....different? Seems like it's gonna take some getting used to.
Anyway, I have some exciting news! After a heck of a lot of planning and some collaborations, I am so, so so excited to present my new project to you all: Project Vagabond!
The basic premise of Project Vagabond is that it is a clothing project that fuels community, events, and social activism. We are interested in using art and fashion to propel events and causes into the community. We're really just
Our first event is going to be a photo-shoot collaboration about street style and fashion in public spaces. If you show up, you have the chance to be featured on our blog (PROJECT VAGABOND ON TUMBLR) and in a guest magazine. CHECK OUT OUR ETSY STORE!
And if you need some motivation to check us out, here's a behind the scenes photo from our recent photoshoot.

HEY GUYYS! It's been like AGES so in the spirit of happiness and Disney and springtime and breaks, here is a THINGS I LOVE THIS WEEK!
I am currently on my Spring Break and it's been amazing so far! I have had my share of both excitement and relaxation, and I am in the best mood. I was in Orlando, Florida from Saturday until yesterday with some of the best people, and we spent a few days hanging by the pool and two days at UNIVERSAL STUDIOS ORLANDO! It is one of my favorite theme parks (My favorite rides are Harry Potter ride, Spider-Man, and ET-hahahha!) and I had a blast!
Things I Love:
♥ pizza; ♥ getting to spend part of my break on vacation in Orlando, Florida!; ♥ Marvel Comics (duh but seriously..I am so thankful that Marvel exists in the world);
here i am fighting the Green Goblin. Don't worry, i totally kicked his ass and saved the city. You're welcome.
♥ Craigslist; ♥ The Shins; ♥ reading a good book all night because I can't stop reading even though I have to wake up early; ♥ nice people who work in airports (IT IS A RARE THING); ♥ Dr. Seuss; ♥ mini roller coasters; ♥ pad thai; pastel colors; ♥ sunglasses; ♥ sunshine; ♥ cute lizards; ♥ Superhero Island; ♥ The Lorax (the book and character, I haven't seen the movie yet!); ♥ The Wizarding World of Harry Potter;
♥ theme parks; ♥ Minnie Mouse; ♥ the importance of a good breakfast; ♥ friends who bring you coffee in the morning; ♥ iHop; ♥ getting style inspiration from magazines; ♥ forgetting that sometimes it's hard for people in Florida to understand me because I talk really fast and have a bit of a NY accent. ♥ sneaking into the pool after it closes; ♥ being back home, where people walk fast and ice cream places stay open after 9 pm; ♥ characters
What are you thankful for this week?
