i felt i needed to bring the brightness today to make up for yesterday's lack of color. i got to school a bit early yesterday to cram for a test and my classmates looked at me somewhat surprised and said, "you look so. . . professional." rarely the look i am striving for. so today i threw on my favorite thrifted duds and a new pair of shoes and hopped the L to work.
shoes: jeffrey campbell, from oak
i ordered this shirt on etsy awhile ago because i loved the details but it just looked WRONG on me. this morning i figured out the solution: to wear it backwards. bam. i'm amazed i had the brainpower to buckle my shoes; i had a test in chocolate last night (HALLELUJAH, it's finally over) and got let out of class extremely late and ran home, changed, and met a couple of friends at the bushwick country club near my house. after that we walked a couple of blocks to the metropolitan, featuring a gay bartender who also happened to be an avid sports fan (he and i shouted back and forth about the yankees, he being a fan and i most certainly NOT, and then when he found out i was from chicago extolled the greatness of jay cutler and all the great things he's going to do for the bears this year, so i decided he was okay) and $1 pbrs. i didn't know reasonably priced beer existed in this city. i think i've found my new spot. i teetered home at about 2:30 am and fell asleep watching a biography on jon stewart.
tonight, no school! the possibilites are endless! stay tuned!
