rock on with your bad self

dress: thrift -- cardigan: thrift -- hat: thrift -- boots: Etsy -- tights: Target, present from my sister Molly

I hope you like my angry face. I whipped out my most scathing, withering looks for all of you! Just kidding. I'm actually a very silly person, but you all thought I looked really good with my angry face on in my last post, so I thought I'd do my best smizing for all of you today. I think it just looks hilarious.

I look normal in this one at least, right?

So, confession. This is probably the third time I've worn this outfit, I just haven't ever put it on the blog. It's super comfy, and it reminds me of Andi might wear in Pretty in Pink. She's pretty much my style icon.

This is the face I will make right before I say my most calculatedly cold put-down.

My computer has something terribly wrong with it, and will only run the internet browser and Picasa. Something really weird happened that corrupted one of the basic application-launching processes, and I've been working hard with my dad to try to fix things to no avail. Hopefully we'll figure it out today. In the meantime, I've been experimenting with cloud computing. Everything I need to read or write I have to upload and work on in Google Docs, and I've been using Grooveshark to listen to music since I can't use iTunes. I have to say that it's really convenient for someone like me who probably uses 2-4 different computers every day.

Today's title comes from The Hues Corporation -- "Rock the Boat." I'd say (without the slightest trace of irony) that it's probably one of my favorite songs ever. It never fails to put me in a grand mood. Make of that what you will :P

Great job on the smizing, very fierce indeed ;) I alternate between smiling and grumpy/angry-looking pics myself, but I'm smily in real life, I swear! Haha.
Loving this outfit, I'd wear it a lot too! I adore the hat and the pretty dress, and love the contrast between sweet and tough with the boots!

M xo

I absolutely adore this outfit! It reminds me so much of 90's grunge, which I love! The combat boots are truly perfect.

Oh, and I don't think I've ever mentioned this to you (but always think it) you have incredible eyes! So striking and fierce.

sorry to hear about the pc issues. i had my own share and it really put everything in a halt. no blogging, no life in cyberspace.

hahaha you are scaring me a lot in that first photo (even though you look gorgeous!) I am afraid to get in your way. :P I would wear this outfit a lot more than 3 times. It is amazing. That dress! Come! ON! Stop thrifting all these miracles!!

Oh and that reeeaallly sucks about your computer. Hopefully it will get fixed soon!! At least you've been able to manage ok so far.

Your outfit is so Pretty in Pink.

Ashley/ MILK TEETHS said...

did that cardigan come with all the buttons mismatched or did you do that yourself? In any case, I'm totally stealing that idea--I love it! And agreed, this is very Pretty In Pink-ish (a fav movie of mine as well) :)

Mama Wolf said...

Haha, you're so cute. I completely agree, this does look like something Andi would wear of Pretty in Pink..And that makes this whole look even more radical.

xoxo mama wolf

Super great dress. Way to do 90s without killing it.

(Also, so looking forward to meeting you possibly.)
