DIY skirt, random tee, random cardi, DIY wingtips, Marni small balloon bag


I don’t know if you can tell, but this douchebag’s shirt was tucked IN TO his underwear.


So these are some close-ups of the skirt that I’m wearing/made. It’s a really pretty rose/floral print with these leather side panels and a basic elastic band waist. It was an impromptu DIY when I was bored and sick of work. It’s hard to tell in the first photos so here’s a better sideview shot of the leather panels:

Went round to Remedy diner again this afternoon for lunch. That place isn’t exactly the best but it’s pretty good for a late lunch that’s not flaming expensive…and we sat right opposite Ryan Sheckler..not that that was great or anything.

So..yesterday was an intense day for me. It was basically survey/portfolio day where all the senior Communication Design students put up their best work from all 4 years for display and essentially, it’s for the faculty and department to judge to see who gets into the Pratt Show, which is like this big hooplah for you to display your work again at the Manhattan sthsth Center for all the professionals and potential employers to see. It’s a pretty big deal in school especially for all of us graduating and who are in dire need of a job. However…I didn’t get in (sad face Y.Y) but…I mean I didn’t really expect to get in anyways..but a little bit of me wanted to just cos it would’ve been cool ): well..I’m not staying in NY anyways so…I guess I should be totally fine with it.

Tomorrow I have to go in to hand in my final paper for this insanely retarded Cultural Studies class (DAMN YOU VILE WOMAN) and sit a final Science exam (WTF WE’RE ART STUDENTS WE DONT CARE ABOUT SCIENCE). And so in about 11 hours from now, I’ll be completely done with University. It’s pretty intense, I dont think i’ve fully been hit by the “omg what now?” feeling. But maybe I’m just denying it..or I’m too tired to even think about it. Monday night I went into school at 8pm and stayed up all night until about 6am the next day putting my display up. So lack of sleep was major, so major that last night I went to bed at 6pm in the evening and didn’t wake up till like 1.30pm this morning. That’s approximately a total of almost 18 hours (woke up for a bit). Yes it was awesome. And well hey, just for you guys, here’s a picture of me and my (losing) wall:

————————————

Oh and I guess since I’m a little upset from not getting into the show, here’s something that I’m majorly looking forward to: I just ordered these amazing Ash wedges the other day and I’m hoping to receive them maybe tomorrow!!!!! They’re super high and chunky and I’ve been dying for strappy black wedges for the longest freaking time and I decided to get these since they were on sale for $157 (org. $231) AND I found a $30 off coupon for Bluefly!
