Waiting for the Train

Today, I felt quite daring. For one, I am wearing gold, something I never do. Gold, the color of the Gods, hence I equal Ali, God of Godliness. And not only was I wearing gold, I was wearing lots of it: gold on my necklace, gold on the details of my mommy's (now mine) vintage purse, and little gold beads on this old vest I found in the attic in the Halloween costume bin. I consider myself a bit intense today. Beside that, I never brushed my hair, which is a very daring thing to do when one knows they must take pictures of them self.

Half of the pictures I took today didn't have me in them since I kept running from the wasps that decided to invade. I was about to get my lightsaber out and chop their faces off, but running seemed more realistic at the time. Perhaps we shall meet at another time, awkward black wasps that look like evil buzzing threads. Perhaps we shall. When we do, I will be waiting, lightsaber in one hand, complete and utter destruction in the other.

Black and gold is just the perfect pairing, and the wasps were probably bothering you because you were doing their colors better than they.

The bag is super awesome, don't give it back ;)

I used to not like gold either, but now I totally love it, specially using the right accessories can make a simple outfit look very stylish.

hahaah i love the part about the wasps :P

anyway, the gold looks great. i used to have ZERO gold jewelry and then one day i realized how silly it was to pretend like gold didn't matter. because it did. and i was just scared of not looking good in it :( but you look amazing with all the gold details please wear it more often!!!



Jen said...

GOLD! i love how it accents your all black outfit. you should wear that color more often! the detailing on that vest is just fantastic. and next time you better show those wasps who's boss. >:)

You look so chic in all black. And a little random, but I love the shape of that bag. Boxy is the way to be!

And I love the photos you posted below. A little eerie, but totally rad.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I don't brush my hair ever..I find that blow drying it and then just stroking it through with your fingers gives it a more natural look :)
