Sometimes when I sit here to write blog entries, all sorts of cheesy things come to mind and I know that most times they do make it in my writing. But today, I will refrain and try not to talk about how I’m probably going to actually start a war with all the delicious newness I have going on in the picture above. So, don’t worry because I’m not going to say it.
I also won’t mention how Mr. Bear here is ready for war because he’s got a gas mask. Though, I will tell you he is from yumyum and the pose is by elephante which they did in sort of a collaboration. Then I won’t tie in the fact that the pants I’m wearing are a collaboration between Cynful and lil’lace and that they are a part of the upcoming Dressing Room Fusion. Nope, not going there. However, I will mention that my top is new from Vershe and the jacket is also a new release from Corvus. Do you see how good I’m doing? In addition, I’m pretty sure the hair is a new release from Elikatira who has updated her hairs to use a HUD. Yay for less inventory 😀
Well, there you go. A blog post that’s not random and is not cheesy what-so-ever. It was tough, but I did it.
I think my rebellious phase isn’t planning on leaving any time soon. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still my normal bubbly and sweet self, but the clothing has recently taken a dip into the scandalous side of things. It might be pretty tame by most people’s standards, but this is me we’re talking about. I suppose it’s just a way for me to go crazy without actually going crazy. So, in the mean time… all you people get to benefit visually. You’re welcome!
Do you ever play the game of shoulda, woulda, coulda? It’s not a very productive game since most of it is spent thinking about how you could have handled various situations in life differently. However, sometimes I find myself playing along. What if I had done things this way? Or maybe I should have said this? Could it have ended opposite of how it did? Well, chances are it probably would have ended up different because I wouldn’t have done the same thing.
Honestly, it’s not a healthy way to think. Sometimes, we act or make decisions that alter our course or deviates us from our plan. Though, instead of dwelling on things like this, I rather believe it all happens for a reason. Maybe I don’t know exactly why I ended up in this exact spot in life, but eventually it’ll all work out. Life is what you make of it. So, don’t let it pass you by while you’re stuck thinking about the past.

It’s not every day that an outfit makes me smile like this one. There is nothing out of the ordinary or ground breaking about it, but it still has this effect on me. Maybe it’s the simple fact that I would have worn while I was in college. The flared jeans, layered tops and flip flops (that Georgians live in year round) bring back a lot of memories. You know, the days when you could roll out of bed and get to class in your pajamas. Man, if only the real world was like that.

I was talking about my high school days with Carmelo today and it was interesting to say the least. Mainly because we definitely had different experiences and I mentally can’t connect myself with who I was back then. Life has changed for me in so many ways; I’ve seen plenty of things, had experiences people only imagine and I guess I’ve just grown. Maybe my foundation is still the same, but I am, for sure, miles away from the girl I was.
So, I decided to throw together a look that was opposite from what I normally wear / look like. It’s a little bad-ass, a little glam, and a little sexy. And I think it worked out well. Perhaps, I used to be a little unlike I am now, but maybe different isn’t such a bad thing.
Every time I see a school girl outfit, I always think about Aerosmith’s “Crazy” video with Alicia Silverstone and Liv Tyler. They make being bad look really fun and exciting. Which makes me wonder if I would have turned out like that if my dad had ever made good on his threat to send us to Catholic school. On the flip side, I’m an adult with more than a couple tattoos and piercings. So, maybe I didn’t need to go in order to turn out rebellious. Though, if you ask me it’s a form of self expression.

I’m pretty sure I dressed like this in RL at one time or another. I was a bit emo, but I feel like Lori’s releases at Corvus are a little more than that. Sure they are more on the edgy side, but I think there’s so much flexibility. You’ve seen my previous posts of her stuff where it can be fun and girly or rocker or even a little goth, I suppose. In any way, her stuff is great and she’s released quite a bit recently. Most of which I’m still trying to catch up on. 😉 So, make sure you check back to see more of her goodies!
I’m still in my thoughtful mood, but I don’t even think I have words right now. Though, I guess I will say this and it’s more of a reminder to myself. Don’t let someone ruin you, and never doubt who you truly are no matter what anyone says. Always rely on your friends when you need a hand to hold you up. Never let something good pass you by even if it scares you. And take chances because sometimes the risk is worth the pay out.
There are lots of things I like to do when putting outfits together. Usually, it is putting some type of twist on the outfit. If I’m wearing lace then a touch of leather is always nice. You know, a little edge to take away some of the safety of my choices.
This new dress from Corvus allows me to do just that. It’s girly, frilly, classy, and yet it’s sexy and edgy. Paired with some red accents, I think I stand out perfectly. Now, I just need the right guy to ask me to dance and whisk me away in his old beat up Mustang.
