we could be dignified and old together

First day of the quarter! Sorry for the lack of updates over the last several days. I've been busy getting my ducks in a row for moving back into my room and starting the new quarter.


sweater: thrift -- dress: American Apparel -- tights: Urban Outfitters -- boots: thrift


I bought this dress with the American Apparel Groupon that my mom gave me at Christmas. It's a little tight on the bottom (one-size-fits-"all" is never a good idea...) but I have hopes it will stretch out a bit!





I'm really happy because I've discovered that several of my best friends are in the history class I have to take for my major! I think this quarter is going to be all kinds of fun.



Feeling kinda terse today! Maybe I'll have a little more to say next time :)

Today's song title comes from The Modern Lovers -- Dignified and Old.

I love the stripes and the red. It's one of my favorite combos. And you're right...one size fits all is never a good idea!

i think this dress looks great on you! it looks like it's meant to be a bit tight at the bottom otherwise it'll just hang :) however, i am also positive that it will stretch... and then shrink a little when you wash it... either way, looks great on you... and i love the light on these photos! x

Could you stop being so cute? It makes me jealous :)
I'm glad that I'm not the only one that can put history and fun within ten feet of each other, haha.

And, I've been on a strict sudafed, vitamin c drops, and herbal tea regemin for the past three days and allllllmost feel better. Thanks for the sympathy!

I love the dress! Stripes are always great & I love how you paired it with the extra long cardi (in one of my favorite colors!). Good luck with a new semester! Having friends in class with you is always fun. :D

Oooh, I love your grey tights here. I have a pair, but I feel like I can never quite pull them off. I'll have to try it with a classic color palette like you did. Thanks for the inspiration!

Love this dress, looks great on you! I've always been afraid of American Apparel clothing because I've heard their sizes are small!
