a few orders of business

I'm really excited to announce that next week, five stylish, charming, hilarious, and beautiful ladies are going to take over the blogging reins with a series of guest posts. I can't wait to see what they come up with. I've got a lot on my plate academically next week, and I want to finish my work before I head down to Palm Springs with my dear friend Sam to spend the weekend with my aunt and uncle. Between the busy-ness and the trip, it seemed like it was best to avail myself of blogging duties.

One of the academic commitments I'm working on is a paper I'm writing that's all about thrifted fashion and exciting postmodern theory. I want to say more, but I've got to keep my lips zipped so that I can get un-influenced answers from all of you on the enthralling thrift style questionnaire! that I've created. It should take about 10-15 minutes... think about the procrastination potential there! And you'd be engaging in virtuous procrastination, the best of all procrastination flavors. You get to add a little extra glow to your halo while putting off more pressing engagements. Win-win.

On an unrelated note, these are some photos from Ashely of Fancy Fine's holiday shopping party back in December. I had my lens wide open all night since it was quite dim and generally I don't believe in flash, so very few photos actually came out because there wasn't enough light to focus sharp enough for f1.8 :( Ah well!


Jenny and Anna of Hummingbird Girls (aren't they both adorable!)


The food! There was an awesome cheese platter (out of the focal plane, sadly) that Alex and I single-handedly ate a third of.


Nicole's spread of beautiful treasures


The wonderful Nicole of Fashion Forestry and Ashley of Fancy Fine

Another non-sequitur, but, just for fun, here's a photo of me five years ago. Fourteen. My style aesthetic then consisted of sweaters or knit tops with scooter skirts+leggings or midi wool skirts and Chuck Taylors. Oh, and I had black hair.

I have no idea what I'm doing in that tree.
And, one last plug for my Thrift Style Questionnaire :)

I hope you all enjoy next week's guest posts! I can't wait to come back from my trip with all kinds of great photos and memories to share with you all :D

YOU LOOK A LOT BETTER NOW. Further proof to my theory that most people are ugly teenagers slash teenagers are ugly.

Haha not to say that you were ugly, just less gorgeous than you are now.
Gosh I am so tactless.
