hi everyone! remember me? i'm so sorry i've been such a failure at blogging lately. i mentioned life being crazy. it has gotten so much crazier. i am sitting on my own bed in daylight for the first time in over a week, so i am finally able to snap an outfit photo and write a little something.
i guess i can start from this weekend and work my way back. yesterday, class. third to last before i graduate on thursday. it was semi-successful. i go back this afternoon to try to wrap most of it up.
saturday and sunday, connecticut. beautiful. blissful. i'm going to leave that a little ambiguous for now.
the past week in chicago was pretty productive and a lot of fun. i found an apartment, interviewed for my job and clenched the thing (fingers crossed, i should get the call this week.) played too much beatles rock band. ate at my favorite sushi place which was nowhere near as awesome as i remembered. made eggs on a motorcycle in the mornings with my friend michael, whom i was staying with. the weather was gorgeous and i was able to ride my bike for the first time and coasting down the side streets of wicker park made me remember just how much i absolutely love that city. the closer it comes, the more terrified i am to leave everything i have in new york, but the past week re-confirmed for me how much the city fits. it feels so right on me.
and before that, the weardrobe conference!! i'm pretty bummed because i had to miss quite a bit of it, due to class and my chicago trip, but what i made it to was absolutely incredible. i'll be doing a lot of shouting out to the amazing sponsors who donated so much to the weekend - i was really blown away by the generosity and creativity of all the companies.
and i acquired the elements for my new favorite outfit ever. this shirt weighs about 20 pounds; i picked it up at artists and fleas on saturday with all the girls from the conference. the jeans were part of a diy project sponsored by pac sun - we all got to pick a pair of jeans and do to them what they will. i'm not much of a stud-wearer (or jeans wearer for that matter) so i cut them into little shorts and sewed some buttons on them (courtesy of the style magnet.)
shirt: corvus noir at artists and fleas
shorts: pac sun (DIY'd)
okay, i have to do some laundry, drink some coffee and head to class. hope everyone's week has been as glorious as mine!
