Also, has anyone seen Slumdog Millionare? Because I was thinking of renting it since it won so many awards....was it good?
Second of all, I am not dead =] (duh.) even though I've been missing for a few days...
Third, hilariousness I heard the other day at J.C. Penney:
Little Boy (to his Grandma): "...yeah my teachers get on to me all the time because I like to wear the shirt from my Halloween costume to school...and it has a cobra on it!"
It was the funniest thing because I expected him to say something BAD...oh man, what a cool kid. Wearing his cobra shirt! haha. I got a new dress that day too, but I haven't taken pictures yet...coming soon! =]
That's it for now! I reallllllly need to do my homework! =/

Sorry for lack of anything fashionwise in this post, but I've been sitting around being a major dork lately...playing Nancy Drew computer games, baking Magic Bars, and reading this amazing book about the Titanic written by survivors of the disaster. (I found it at this great used book store for $3. I was really excited because I have been FASCINATED by the Titanic since the 3rd grade. Me and some friends of mine even built a model of it for school.) Unfortunately, that means I have taken almost no pictures of my outfits...except the one picture above...which I took for this week's Weardrobe contest! =]
The skirt was actually made about...10 years ago(?) for my mom by this lady we went to church with when we lived in New York. She rarely wears it, but suggested that I try making an outfit with it...so I did! Note: I did NOT wear this outfit all day because I would have FREEZED my bum off...its only about in the 50s... However the outfit was just perfect and I had to take pictures of it. Or rather, my mom took pictures of it.
And one more thing! You guys HAVE to check out this website called Looklet. It looks like its going to be pretty amazing! Just put you e-mail in and they'll send you an invitation code. I got mine within a day!

Well I did get a part in the play!!!! I get to clean gravestones while talking about dead people!!!! (ha. for real.) Its not a big part, but that was to be expected since its the last show for our seniors. =[ So they get most of the large roles. I also get to sing during the wedding in the show! Me and this guy Drew. That should be far more exciting. I just realized that I haven't even mentioned the title of the show....duhdurrrrr, its The Woman In White. We're doing the play version, but there is a musical to, and my teacher is trying to incorporate parts of the musical in our show...so during the wedding me and drew sing the song they used in the wedding...its very creepy actually...because supposedly the marriage is "doomed".
Here's the song: (only the part that's "The Holly And The Ivy")
The musical is by Andrew Lloyd Webber! He is just so amazing!
On another note, I did my own version of those paintballed shoes that I talked about a while ago. I think they turned out pretty coolie. I ended up using heels...this old beat-up pair I ruined during a play last year...I got the actual heels on them all scratched up.
Agh! I have so many other random things I would love to talk about right now, but I don't want this to become any more long and ranty...as it has started to become...
So just ONE more thing. I promise. My accidently shredded tights. See they were some REALLY cheap drugstore pantyhouse and they got a tiny pull. And I pulled it. And it exploded. Then I was just like, "Oh well, might as well shred them to pieces." Sooooo...I did. =] Then I had to go to the school for class registration. And everyone was like, "Wow, what happened." Um...I got attacked!? They're just shredded tights!
Then I wore them over blue tights the next day...with this new pink dress my mom got me a Express for $10!

I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I've been very very BUSY!
I had a play I was in on Monday and Tuesday, auditions for a play Tuesday and today, and lots of lovely, bundles of fun SCHOOL WORK!!! Oh joy.

So if you'd rather not hear about my life...erm...stop reading here!
I had my mock trial competition this morning where I was a witnes...we would have made the final regional match, but even though my side (our prosecution team) did great....out defense got SLAUGHTERED! Then at 7:00 I was in Coffeehouse (which is sorta like a talent show-ish only cooler thing)...and had a BLAST MCing (although we didn't end up being secret agents...we sorta...well I'll show you guys later once I get video from a friend of mine...haha, we got to tie people up=])
Also, I am MADDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD because I don't know if I got video of the last half of the show. and that's the best part...
Ok, I lied...tiny tidbit of fashion:

Unfortunately I was too much of a lazy person to take a picture of my outfit I wore, but basically it was the shirt from this post with the vest from this post...with black dress pants and my black flats with shiny buttons on them
I will leave you all with a product of my crazy photoediting I've been doing lately! I LOVE changing colors! It is SO fun! (However, the first one is the unedited original.)
