46; People are strange, when you're a stranger

Top: Vantage Point Vintage • Sports bra: so ancient that I can't remember • Jeans: thrifted • Wedges: Wholesale-dress.net • Jewelery: Bone carved earrings (flea market stand), ear cuff (eBay vintage), crystal necklace (antique), trinket necklace (DIY) • Shades: Newbury Comics

Ooh, I'm so edgy! I have so much 'tude! I'm trying a new thing here with outfit photos: poses. I feel so much disdain toward my stiff-as-a-board stances lately. I was actually feeling pretty awesome in this outfit anyway. I wear this VPV top a lot lately, and have worn it with quite a number of things so far, but the sports bra and denim combination is my favourite. (Also, I am so bugged by the white balance difference in these photos! My apologies; I tried to edit the colours so that they'd be at least somewhat consistent, but still stay true to the outfit...but I don't have legit Photoshop on this computer, so I didn't have much to work with.)

I can't believe that the end of summer is neigh. I am often experiencing anxiety when I recall this fact. Last winter was terrible -- it was very cold and after Christmas, it rained and sleeted and hailed constantly. It made going outside a miserable experience and I thus lost all of the muscle tone I'd gained over the summer and fall. I also had nothing nice to wear, so I spent most of my time in my pajamas and sweatshirts, if I wasn't at work. I'm being proactive on getting some nice wintertime wear though, so hopefully I won't disappoint you guys too much!

But until autumn finally hits, I'm clinging to a list of songs that have always reminded me of hot, sunny summers, plus songs I've discovered this summer that I adore, and I thought I'd share that list with you lovely readers of mine. (Don't judge my taste in soundtracks; they're really good songs -- I promise!)

The Concept of Love • Jet Set Radio Future Soundtrack
Too Many People • Paul McCartney
When the Music's Over • The Doors
Stuck in the Middle With You • Stealer's Wheel
What Can I Do? • The Black Belles
Sad Sad City • Ghostland Observatory
Gold Lion • The Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Blue Funk • Trigun Soundtrack
Sound Life ~ Rem • Trigun Soundtrack
It's All Too Much • The Beatles*
Love Shack • The B-52's
Bloodletting • Concrete Blonde
What's Up • 4 Non Blondes
(Sidenote: here's a hilarious What's Up parody)

*Probably in the top five of my favourite songs, ever.

  2. @Iben; thanks so much!

    @Strawberry; YES, I'm kind of obsessed with this top. I keep wearing it with new things, but I'd hate to be redundant and clog up my blog with ten outfits with the same center piece, so I resist doing posts for them.
