Crawling towards the sun...


I hate how quickly the weather is changing. Though I normally love it when its room temperature outside, I can't handle it right now because I know it probably wont be hotter than this until May....Summer '09...counting down the days.
Not joking.


I am taking every chance I get to wear my florals before its too cold. I bought this skirt at Charlotte Russe last week. It was $5 in the clearance rack. Cha-chinggg, Luella knock-off. I don't care if it was a little late, ha.



The shirt I am wearing is vintage Sonia by Sonia Rykiel. Never heard of it, but it must have been big in the 70s-80s. I got this shirt when I got that pile of vintage designer loot from my grandma about 6 months back. There is a really nice detail on the sleeves.

Here is are the skirt and stockings close up. Sorry about the camera strap getting in the way =P

I am trying for a modeling gig to be in the Halloween Fashion Show for my local vintage store. I am going for a fitting on Friday with Belle. If I get the job, I get store credit. Wish me luck!

Yesss florals.
I hope your entry title is a reference to the Hush Sound song. Because that would make me immensely happy.

So weird, I saw them at Bamboozle two years ago also! I didn't go last year because the lineup was bleh. My favorites are Eileen, Hurricane, Don't Wake Me Up, Magnolia.. oh heck, I just kind of like all of their songs. I'm trying to play some of them on piano too, but it's so hard to sing and play at the same time!
