I Like To Match My Walls

I apologize for the serious lack of posts lately! I'm bad. Anyways, I might go to Bamboozle this weekend! My friends had an extra ticket and asked me to go, I don't even have to pay for the ticket! Yay! My mom has somewhat agreed but she is (currently) saying no to me staying over at a friend's house Saturday night (we're going for both days.) Hopefully that will change. I'm very excited! The only concerts I've been to are those of local bands. I hope I can go! Onto my title..

On another note, I went to Olvera St. in Downtown LA yesterday for a Spanish project with some friends. It's a street that Mexicans used to live on a long long long time ago. Basically now, it's a street full of street vendors selling authentic Mexican things, tiny resteraunts, and dancers/singers. It was really cool and besides getting our project done, I got this snazzy bag :)

And I got these things called worry dolls. It comes in this bag:

The little paper inside the bag says: There is a legend amongst the highland Indian village of Guatemala. If you have a problem then share it with a worry doll. Before going to bed, tell one worry to each doll, then place them beneath your pillow. While you sleep the dolls will take your worries away. These are the dolls:

High&Waisted Part 2!

Yes! Sorry for not posting the last couple of days, outfits were mediocore and I was bussssy. I went to see Shutter last night! It was o scary!!!! If you're planning on seeing it, DON'T. Anywho, at the place we went to, there was this tiny store that reminded me of Charlotte Russe or something, but with better clothes. It was pretty cheap and I probably would have bought some things if I had remembered to bring more money haha. I tried on this pair of high-waisted shorts and I am kindof in love. I hope no one takes them before I get to go again!

I don't know why it's sideways... :(

Wear & Tear

School and everything else going on in my life is seriously wearing me out! Bah. And on another sad note, my favorite shirt I wear basically everyday when I'm relaxing at home or walking my dog TORE! Not even a little hole, but a big gash on one side! And I don't even remember where I got it from and it's very sad because it was so comfy and soft. Boo.

What I wore today.. (The gold chain had one of those ivory tooth things on it but it fell off during science :( I need to fix it later.)

Shorts: Old Navy, Top: Kaitlyn, Cardigan: American Apparel, Necklaces: Forever 21 & Urban Outfitters, Sandals (not shown): India.

And what I wore last night out for dinner at CPK! Excuse the awkward pose.

Easily Swayed

pretty much describes me when it comes to school elections. ASB elections are on Thursday, so this whole week is basically campaigning. I've gotten tons of little things from people (ie: wristbands, keychain things, shirts, mardi gras beads, etc) and it's only been one day! (We didn't have school yesterday). I'm having lots of fun with everything haha, I love getting free things! Click photos to enlarge.

And I thought I'd show you my school bag. It's from India and is very practical.

Top: Kaitlyn. Swing jacket thing: Gift, brand is Monteau. Shorts: Old Navy. Tights: Target. Boots: Steve Madden via Famous Footwear. Bag: India.

I Have A Legit Reason

for not posting, in case you were wondering. Most of my family was here since Thursday for my uncle's big 60th bithday party. I was so excited to see everyone, but it kindof sucks when everyone has to leave (in this case, yesterday). And seeing as how I couldn't do any homework while they were here, my day off today must be spent catching up (although, I did go out to PF Changs which means my stomach is now content). Anywho, I leave you with some outfits from the big party/weekend.

Cousin's wife. This was the night before the party at our house.

Some of my aunts and some of my cousins-I'm in the beige, and my mouth looks weird haha. This is at the University where the party was at. It was so pretty!

Closeups. Two of my cousins' wives and I, yay.

I'll have a nice post tomorrow, I promise :)

A girl asked me today why I wear tights so often, she said she hated wearing them in dance and she didn't understand why ANYONE would wear them outside of dance. I told her they were comfy, and (in my opinion) very classy but casual at the same time. She stared at me for about 2 minutes, started to laugh, and then walked away. Interesting girl.

Books & Wheat Thins

are all I need. I finally got to go to the library yesterday and pick up some books, I haven't had anything new to read since January! I'm so excited to read them, I love getting lost in books. Aside from that, all I did yesterday was go to the gym, finish up some homework, watch Make Me A Supermodel reruns, and go to Costco. I love relaxed Sundays (and wheat thins).

Top & shorts: Old Navy, Bag: Mom's

About today, Happy St. Patricks Day! I read somewhere that it was moved to the 15th this year, because of a Catholic holiday but I guess not? I totally forgot all about it even being St. Patties until 1st period when someone told me "You're not wearing green!" I was confused and started to ask why it would matter if I was wearing green, but then I remembered what day it is. I was a little bummed that I forgot (I didn't want to get pinched!) but then my friend realized that the flowers on my shirt were green, and all was well again.

But then it got hot, so I took off the cardigan...

Channeling My Roots

I decided to take out some tops from India I had gotten recently and try to Americanize them. I'm getting really into ethnic prints lately and I have found a new love in my Indian clothes, which is always nice because I can get some more wear out of them. So, here are some outfits, which I will hopefully wear out in the near future. Keep in mind that these are all casual tops, meant to be worn to lunches at someones house or things like that. They are not for big Indian parties- for those, we bust out the bad boys ;)

Perfect for summer, no? I love this top, I got it over winter break when I visited India. It's so comfy and soft and pretty at the same time.

Ah, I found this buried in between all the saris on my last day in India over winter. They only had one and it wasn't my size but I knew I had to get it. It's quite loose on me, but I love it. The color is dreamy.

A family friend of ours got me this top last year, as well. I haven't gotten a chance to wear it anywhere yet, but I love the print and the detailing on the neckline.

Probably my favorite. My aunt brought me the top when she came here to visit last year. I think the print and fabric of the top go wonderfully with the old-feel of the bag, which I am still obsessing over if you wanted to know.

And lastly, I leave you with an elephant my parents saw during their honeymoon in Goa (a beautiful beachy state in India).

I Am Sad

...because it seems like I am getting less and less comments from you guys! The majority of you guys voted for more outfits in the poll, so I guess I will focus more on that. Yes?

I wore my new dress today, the color makes me happy and reminds me very much of Spring!

Also, I found this bag in my mom's closet this morning. I ran downstairs with it and asked my mom if I could have it and WHY she was hiding it from me. She said her dad got it for her from New Dehli more than 15 years ago! I was really surprised becuase my parents don't have anything from when they were younger (which is a total shame because my dad was crazy cool back in the day. I should post pictures sometime..) Anyways, I'm very excited to wear it out!

What do you think? (And keep commenting!!)

Edit: Someone commented saying it would be nice if I said where everything was from. Sooo here you go. Dress: Forever 21. Tights: TJ Maxx. Sandals: India. Cardigan: Zara
