74; Birthday Suit

Top: thrifted • Pants: TUNNEL VISION • Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell Stevie • Belt: Etsy • Necklace: birthday gift from Kathryn • Earrings & shades: The Garage, Cambridge MA
Nail colour: China Glaze 'Japanese Koi'

It's Gypsy again! ♥ ISN'T SHE ADORABLE? Gah, this cat is so sweet. I love her lots. (Don't tell Jasmine; she'll KILL me.)

So I know I seriously JUST wore these jeans in a recent outfit (with a white top, pink bindi, and JCs...oops). I have another photo shoot done and had planned on posting that and then this one, as to avoid a sense of repeat. As it turns out, I have grown to really, really hate the outfit and the shoot all together, and I really don't want to post it. Sorry, guys.

But I feel this outfit is really different! Better, perhaps, than the last one including these jeans. This is what I wore on my 21st birthday (which was a little over a week ago now, huh?) out to Cambridge. Kathryn gave me this gorgeous necklace, vintage from Etsy, along with a gorgeous sake set from the local oriental grocery that I had been wanting for a while. (It has a pair of peacocks on each piece!) The necklace is showing Vishnu's feet, which is significant, in that it is said the river Ganga originates from his feet. She bought it for a whole other bunch of significant reasons for me but that's all sappy spiritual stuff you guys wouldn't be interested in. ♥

I picked up the earrings and sunglasses on my outing for my birthday, as well as an awesome backpack (that is sadly already falling apart, due to the fabric used to make it, so I'm not too upset; easy stuff to fix) and some awesome buys at Urban Outfitters. I plan to shoot one of the things I bought this Wednesday since the weather is supposed to be nice. (If you can call 54 degrees 'nice'.)

--Huh, what's that? My hair? OH, RIGHT. Yeah, it's blue, isn't it? Well, it's supposed to be purple, but I'm an idiot. I went to a grocery store looking for kool-aid to dye my hair with, and saw 'sugar free grape'. I derped and thought, 'that's without sugar, right?' Hah, wrong: aspartame! I was meant to buy unsweetened kool-aid. I didn't even notice until AFTER I had put it all in my hair the night before my birthday, which is why I think it came out the colour that it did. To be honest, I LOVE IT. It's still pretty blue a week later and I'm growing a liiitle bored of it, but it'll wash out.

But dudes, don't make my mistake, unless you live in the arctic tundra like me and don't have bees around for six months out of the year. My hair reeked like grape candy and was actually SWEET. Like, sugary tasting. For dayyys. Keep an eye out on Jean Greige's next kool-aid dye that I saw her mention on Twitter, if you wanna know how to get blue hair with this stuff. Last she mentioned, she's going blue as well!

Okay Imma shut up now, but before I go, I just wanted to share a few adorable photos of the wife-to-be:

...Weaing my jacket. She looks way better in it than I do. :(
