As you can see, I've figured out how to mess around with the layout and such. But I cannot for the life of me find the option to make the photos I post clear and not lighter!! Is there even an option for that?! HELP.

I wish I owned something black leather to slip into so I could run around the house like this.

I went to Thrift Town today after my journalism workshop. I love how it's conveniently located right next to my school :)
I know what you're thinking, but I did not see the shoulder pads and think, "Oh sweet, shoulder pads! Must get this." I'm going to trim them off, and then shorten the hem to about my knee. It's entirely silk (even though the skirt looks like suede in the picture?) and I love it. $4
Alright, this one I'm not so sure of. I saw the print and thought it was very fun. It feels very dated still... Any ideas? I belted it in this picture. $3
The very sheeeeeer short-sleeved blouse is so comfortable, but it was my most expensive purchase at $8. The scarf reminded me a bit of Blair Waldorf (GG comes back in a week!!! YES.), but I'm going to have to experiment with it so I can avoid looking like my flight attendant auntie. $.99

I've been the captain of my school's colorguard/flag team for the past 2 years, and we're currently picking out our new uniforms. I must say, I feel like I may be in love with some of these ridic uniforms. Yes, there are more sequins on one uniform than the number of people in China, I understand. But how can you say no to someone when they are in this little number?!
She is adorable. I want to hug her. Or maybe keep her as my pet that spins flag. I want to get these for my school because we clearly lack the cute factor that the judges reward major points for.

I went to pick up my senior class schedules today-- also known as MAZE day at our school. After being away all summer and forgetting what the people at my school are like, I came home irritated and sweaty. There were massive lines patrolled by ASB (associated student body) officers, but it didn't stop the clearly mature(!!!!) students from cutting.
I honestly wouldn't mind waiting a few more minutes in line just so the assholes would go ahead of me and leave me alone, but I was warm, fatigued from a busy night (I stayed up... doing pretty much nothing except making postcards), and wearing admittedly comfortable but still tall-ish heels.
