vintage princess

Vintage Princess 
Vintage is such a cool "filter" right now. I love it, actually. Some vintage-inspired things aren't the prettiest, but others simply make you want to gasp. I think The dress and boots I picked out above would make a perfect combo for some sort of romantic tumblr picture, and I paired up a Burberry coat with a Louboutin  clutch for a bit of a modern effect. 
Here are the pictures that kind of inspired me: (they can all be found on my tumblr blog)

this is the only other super-short post ever, i promise!

Okay. Here is another super-short post for today, and it's even shorter than the other one (you don't say!). Sorry about this, but between my book review on Perfect Little Daisy and updating my precious Tumblr blog, my time basically amounts to zero minutes. Okay then.
I just wanted to, again, wish everyone a happy 2014, and add that I would LOVE it if you followed my other blog, Perfect Little Daisy and if you're interested, I would also love you to pop over to http://athousandwaystofly.tumblr.com.
Bye everyone, and I'm really sorry again about how awful this and the previous post were!

it is next year

Well, hi everybody. I'm starting by saying that it's next year, or this year (time is so weird), or 2014. To be honest, now I barely remember any of 2013, because it went by so quickly.
This is going to be the shortest post I've ever written, but I just wanted to say:
Happy 2014, everyone! Force this to be the best year you've ever survived yet!

well. it's almost new year's eve, right?

Hello everybody! I do know that I've been missing utterly around here for three days and that I have absolutely no excuse except that I was being a bit lazy. Well, anyways, that's beyond the point. Here is the real focus: it's almost New Year's Eve (the life of parties)!
Source: Tumblr (unknown specifically)
I collected an enormous stack of pictures from Tumblr, and then picked my five favorites. I decided to explain the pictures, since some of them make little sense in the theme of "New Year's Eve":
1. When I look at the picture, I feel like the girl is lonely and confused, but there is still this sense of freedom about her that I love. Sometimes, I feel like that's me.
2. I'll say it outright: I'm frustrated very often. I always feel like taking a random piece of paper and practically  tearing it up. This picture shows that perfectly: the empty grayness that comes with feeling frustrated. One of my New Year's resolutions is to try and use my fluster in different ways.
3. Just because it looks exactly like today: pouring rain, and really gray, with the only color being a measly umbrella.
4. This cat is so beautiful, don't you think? My New Year's wish is that absolutely every animal on the planet will not have to live through torture and hunger and all those awful things.
5. A lot about the new year is learning to be you, I guess. And it's beautiful. This picture was perfect.

i'm living in procrastination nation right now, and i kind of like it

The now has stopped falling already. Everything in the city feels quiet and alone. Not that I would know much more than that because I'm holed up in my room, repetitively watching reruns of the 2012 olympics- specifically, the equestrian section. It's all so peaceful, a little bit after Christmas and a few weeks after Hanukkah, a few days before New Year's Eve. It's the break for everybody that I know, and I'm not complaining.
It feels I'm putting everything off until the next day, where I just procrastinate again. And you know what? I like it. It feels really, really, good.
I am reading the Gossip Girl series for the first time. Can you believe it? Everybody I can think of right now has either read every single book in the collections, or watched the TV show. I've done neither before. I would tell you that I've been reading the books the cute, traditional way, with little English tea cups and all of that, except so far, I haven't tried a single type of tea that I actually ended up liking.
Gossip Girl makes me want to write my own book. I don't really know about what exactly it would be, or what it would be called, or anything. I just like the idea of it, and as you can probably tell, I also really like to write.

Umbrellas are suddenly so into the picture. Everybody has them in all kinds of sizes and patterns and whatever else the umbrella world has thought of adding. I guess they seem kind of romantic or something like that. The two pictures I  picked out above certainly seem that way to me!
This is me at the beach yesterday morning. I was wearing these enormous, oversized jeans and a giant coat that were so comfortable and cuddly (if you know what I mean)! I was just standing there, watching the still water, when my mom (who is a photographer by hobby) took a picture of it. I look like a dork. But honestly? I don't care. I like it.
