The 90s. It seems as though it's unavoidable. It's always a shock to me when things that were so ridiculous the first time around come back. Like the 90s. As I was looking through dresses online at ASOS this morning, I was thinking, "well, at least it's just spandex dresses. i mean it could be way worse. it could be oversized overalls." It was one of those moments where if your friend was there with you they'd be bug eyed and emphatically shaking their head back and forth wordlessly willing you to not say it out loud! But you do. So now, when we start seeing overalls with one strap unhooked, you can blame me. Sorry folks.

So admittedly, this set is a mess. But I am so excited for this party that I had to share with you a mock up of what I used to look like. The party is a "Dress up as yourself from the past" Party! Perfect timing as I have been bemoaning adulthood recently. Let's just say I
What would YOU wear?
Uh, yes please! If it's vintage, and it's got big buttons, I'm pretty much a sucker.
Pair this baby up with some vintage baubles and cute (quasi) retro shoes and bag and
WHAM! (not the band, just the sound effect)
Okay, honestly, you're already awesome. But hey, any excuse to buy a cute vintage dress is a good excuse in my book. Aw yeah.
oh yeah, and HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

I think maybe I'm having a way early midlife crisis. Or maybe I'm having college dorm flashbacks now that I'm a full time student again. Either way, all I want to wear right now are tight punk rock pants and some killer badass jewelry. Maybe even show some midriff? Thoughts?
(I tried showing just the tiniest bit at a rock show recently and Mr.Husband told me oh so kindly that maybe it was just a little bit ridiculous for a respectable lady. Whateves! I'm a 19 year old goth rocker! FTW!)

Today on Facebook, my Mom's best friend from high school posted a picture of them on their highschool graduation day. Let me just say, my Mom is so beautiful!! It was such a neat thing to see her smiling and giggling with her teenage best buds. Since I saw the picture I've been feeling very into 70's styling. Heres a modern take, a Monday Muted ModCloth ensemble!

As of now, I've made all this weeks assignment deadlines, have done (almost) all my reading, and managed to only miss one day of blogging (sorry Friday readers!) Fingers crossed I can manage this coming week a little better than the last (read: not have a total depresso - pig out - bingefest mid-week).
