Lala's Style of the Day: It's Time To Get off my squishy BUM

For me, my clothes tell stories. I would like to share that with you.

  • White t-shirt that's not so white anymore thanks to my excellent Italian skills that lead me to believe that ammorbidente was just another way of saying detergent. At least I found out half way through my stay. My friend never did. His white shirts must be dusty grey now.
  • Betsey Johnson skirt that I picked up from St. Vinnies way back when I used to shop there.
  • Felt necklace that started my obsession with felt jewelry in Italy. My first souvenir from my first trip away from Milan. Oh Cinque Terre let me roam in your waters again.
  • Shoes that I bought at a Christmas market near the castle in Milan. After seeing so many stalls of ornaments and sicilian desserts it was nice to find the last stall with the true goodies - shoes!

  • Flower patterened skort because skorts are ugly but so logical. That's the way I like my fashion - ugly and logical. I bought it at the reject for reject clothing place. The owner of this dollar store was smoking a cigarette while ringing up my clothes. She was friendly...I guess.
  • White t-shirt that went through the same series of unfortunate events that white t-shirt number 1 went through.
  • Tights that I bought from the flea market in Milan after a night of sin-ly activities. I have a weird habit of going to flea markets to purge my guilt. I think it helps me forget about things I want to forget about.
  • Shoes from a thrift store. They have fringe. Enough said.

Okay, yeah, I know, I'm a total douche for not updating with anything substantial but let me just come up with a lame excuse like how I got the second series Hep. A shot so my arm is too weak to type.

I will try to be less douche-y starting .. now.. or maybe tomorrow.

Lala's Style of the Day: Let's just stop, stare, and rewind.

  • Hacked up top: Some yucky long sleeve t-shirt that I thought would look better even yuckier so I shredded the back and splattered doodles all over it.
  • Jeans that just might be too tight: $10 loehmanns. They could pass as leggings, but less comfortable.
  • New Born Wedges: $12.50 nordstrom rack.
Don't you wish there were 48 hours in a day? 24 hours to sleep and 24 hours to live.

Lala's Style of the Day: Back.

  • Green t-shirt dress that I did not know was severely discolored until I wore it but I don't mind because flaws make life beautiful: $2 approximately from Taiwan. Yah. Cheeep.
  • Sheer tights that I bought because I had horrid mosquito bites and wanted to cover them when I wore my dress for an opera in Rome: 0.50 cent flea market
  • Boots: given/taken from an Aussie friend. A trick for all you materialistic people going to study abroad. Make friends with Australian or Kiwis because they have such a strict weight limit that they will most likely have to throw out stuff in which you then will enter and collect the stuff they don't want like a new pair of cute bow ankle boots.
  • Tea coaster headband: 1 euro tea coaster from a flea market in Berlin. headband constructed in the good ole US of A
  • Furry shrug: $1 jet rag
  • Having an outfit under $5 including shoes?! : priceless

I had a temporary moment(s) of insanity but there's a reason why it's only a temporary moment.

Smile for me world, and I will smile back.

It's so easy to act fake.

It's so hard to stop.

Lala's Style of the Day: Back?

As much as I want to wallow in sadness about wishing that I wasn't here and that I was still "studying" abroad, it's time to toughen up and get back to reality. It's hard man. Harder than trying to pronounce pseudonym (hey, that's very hard for me - we all have our weaknesses).
But as for my blog, I am back. I hope I get a wave of motivation in continuing blogging because right now my motivation is about as big as a grain of sand. I moved back to school last Sunday and only brought a suitcase full of clothes with me. When I got dressed this morning I was so sad that I left all my favorite wacky pieces at home. Everything I brought felt too normal. I hope I never become too normal. I tried to make a creative outfit but my mind is not functioning properly at the moment.
  • t-shirt: zara
  • Blazer: $1 buffalo exchange sale
  • jeans
  • shoes: primark. I discovered the beauty and the sheer crazy cheapness of primark when I went to London. you should have seen my shopping bag that day.
  • headband: 2 euro, a little shop in Sorrento, Italy...oh Italy how I miss you so.

I'll keep this entry short and sweet. My eyes are closing on itself.

A bit of motivation for myself. and yall.
