Antigone's Grace


I love this dress. My mom picked out this dress. Wearing this dress makes me feel like I should be able to jump high into the air and start floating around in its sheer awesomeness, which is when waves of rainbows and lucky charms would cascade upon my very being and plow into me and twirl me around like some epic lace tornado raging furiously through Kansas. This dress is probably made of marshmallows, unicorns, sparkles, various fluffy animals, and ex-cheerleaders. Just mixed all together in one big melting pot. This dress evokes wonder and the desire to sit on large rocks. It is as very wonderful dress. It also attracts rather large bees, but it is a risk I am willing to take upon wearing.

Yeah, so mom wanted to take pictures with me wearing it today for my senior pictures send out card to relatives card thing. So I got up early and we took pictures. Hence the truckload of pictures. Oh! So on my last post, lots of you were all, where are you thinking of going to college? Well, I don't know. I'm applying to a bunch of instate colleges but also to a college by a place we could possibly maybe perhaps maybe move in the future. I want to go into something artsy, but not specifically art, like maybe interior design or something like that. I'd be more specific on where I'm applying to, but this is the internet, and it's serious business, especially when you're wearing a dress made out of the powerpuff girls.



Like I said, this dress attracts bees. Very suspicious bees.

Dress: Forever 21
Shoes: TJ Maxx
Bracelet: Claire's, circa 5000000 years ago

aahahahaha i love you, ali! and you're right, if that dress can attract giant bumblebees the size of your head who knows who they'll attract on the internet! stay safe with your dress of powerpuff girls. :)

LyddieGal said...

What great portraits! The one where you are laying on the wall is my favorite. Or no, the one with the huge bee is my favorite!!!

I hope you get in everywhere you apply for something good and artsy (but no too artsy).
Good luck!

Amber Rose said...

You are so lovely! You remind me of Grace Kelley in these pictures :)
And wow, I know what you mean about those bees, but at least he looked cool. And don't stress the college things too much. I didn't know where I was going to go until two months before I graduated. :)

PS: Not sure if you ever thought about Western Kentucky University-- that's where I was supposed to go, lovely photojournalism program there, an artsy school though not really an art school, They're sort of partners with Duke only without the major pricetag. :) Just a thought.

Asta said...

This dress is absolutely fantastic, it has such a nice vintage feel! Lovely pictures, too!

Zoe said...

You look so awesome in these pictures! And I love your background for your photo-shoot! It always adds a nice touch when you have an interesting backdrop.
Thanks for your lovely comment.

Oh my goodness, this post made me "laugh out loud" about eighty times. This dress is really sweet and lovely, and I completely agree that it must be made of powerpuff girls and rainbows. This photoshoot is wonderful, and you look great! (as does that bee's mustache)

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

YOU LOOK AWESOME. (Mean Girls reference?! Yeah? Yeah? Generic Statement? Yeah. BUT IT'S TRUE.) You actually look so much like my friend, it's a little freaky!

Your dress is amazing. And, I mean, if it allows you to float up in the clouds with lucky charms and the like then that's KIND OF AMAZING. And now I officially want your dress.

And it's the cutest thing ever that your mum sends pictures of you! I wish my relatives wanted to see pictures of me!

I love your dress. It's very light and wonderful. I can see why it makes you feel like you can fly. It's also a great colour.

I followed your blog :) I've been enjoying it.

Also nice ring! I need to get more into wearing rings. Mostly I only wear my grad ring and leave it at that.
