roll over beethoven

I spent yesterday cleaning my basement with my dad and we stumbled across his old CD and vinyl record collection! I abruptly went through the CD case. I was desperate for new music, honestly. Even though I have over 4,000 songs in my iTunes, I was ravenous for something new. Except new-old, because a lot of the CDs found in the case were of really old bands. Like entire anthologies from the Beatles, the Bee Gees, Alanis Morissette, Ice MC, and even Motown. So...if my blog titles tend to be from any one of these artists (like todays!) you can bet that I've been listening to them, haha.

Now that I've woken up, and catching up on outfit posts (I take them daily throughout the week. I just don't have time until the weekends to update), I suppose I'll have to catch up on cleaning the house. I've been working on some paintings for my room and I'm excited to start a new one today!

On Wednesday, I went to the dentist and although I've been holding onto my money really carefully so I could spend it on Black Friday, I splurged a bit in Forever 21 when I saw this gorgeous dress. In addition, I'm waiting for my awesome order from Urban Outfitters, haha. My friend and I combined our orders together just so we could get free shipping which, in retrospect, is a good idea because then you'd save a lot of money. Or maybe because I'm cheap, haha. You can view what I bought and ordered here, on my Tumblr. It's more of a less formal way of blogging, so you'll probably see some expletives and internet shorthands (such as LOL).

And I think this is one of my favorite outfits photographed so far of myself (besides this one). I think it has something to do with the way the bottom of the dress moves with my movement and in the wind and the way the transparent layer seems so airy. But sometimes I do wish I had more scenic locations to work with! I guess that's what I have to work with being an inner-city child.

Well, since it's Saturday, I hope everyone's having a great day! :) I'm off to make some brunch for myself and take a shower.
