81; A Seance in the Dark

Top: JC Penny • Skirt: Pacsun • Creeps: eBay • Scarf: Fanneuil Hall, Boston • Necklace: birthday gift (try eBay) • Skull bracelet: Waloosi's, N. Leominster • Other bracelet: • Belt: Delia's • Earrings: vintage

Firstly, thank you guys so much for your wonderful support for SOULMATES! As I type this, I've sold three pieces -- more than I had figured! I'm going to keep working on new pieces and designs, and perhaps even a discount code for you readers! I think I can afford that for you guys, especially if I keep selling stuff. You're more than welcome to help spread the word about the shop; here's a few ways:

My hair's almost not blue-green anymore! I've actually recently bleached it again, and it's sooo white now. It's actually kinda weird seeing it back to this colour after over a month. I'm thinking I'll keep it blonde until I have to do my roots, and then I'll Kool-Aid it again. I've bought packets of Orange and Strawberry, and Kathryn says she wants to see me with pink hair. Well, I've always wanted pink hair, so that's probably the colour you'll see me with next!

Also, you can totally see my mis-matched socks three photos up from here. Well, sometimes, a girl just can't find a matching black sock.

I keep getting fashion block, you guys. I've bought some stuff recently, and can't figure out how to wear any of 'em. Then I look at my existing pieces and go, "eugh," and struggle through finding a decent outfit. Perhaps it's partially due to the weather: it was really freaking warm, but it's getting back to chilly. Below fifty for the most of the next week? Are you kidding me, Massachusetts? You tease.

Also, title reference:

Modeling Contest for BCBGMAXAZARIA

Hey guys! Today starts a week of voting to select one lucky chick to be featured in BCBGMAXAZARIA's Spring 2013 campaign, and I'm in the running for this awesome opportunity. I really don't know if I'll win this, since it's based on votes to narrow it all down to ten girls, and my height challenge isn't really going to help me determine this, I think. Still, there are runner-up prizes, and that would be pretty awesome too!

If you think I deserve to win a modeling gig for BCBGMAXAZARIA, vote for me here! I would really appreciate the support. ♥

80; WE ARE SOULMATES (Blogiversary + SOULMATES launch!)

Top: Pacsun • Pants + belt: Target (eek, don't judge) • Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell Stevie • Bandana: Hot Topic (okay, you can judge now) • Earrings + beaded bracelet: The Garage, Cambridge MA in Harvard Square • Bone-carved bracelet: Waloosi's, Leominster MA

It's my blog's first birthday! Don't bother going to find my first posts from a year ago; they're pretty embarrassing. I was such a newbie. (Though I still am pretty proud of the earcuffs post I made shortly after making my blog. I should do more posts like that.)

I really enjoy this outfit; it's kind of like if the music video for Lady Gaga's "Judas" took place in the 70s...with a little less skin showing. Also, how freaking awesome is this shirt? A glowing white tiger flying out of a horizon at your face via rainbow bird wings. I have half a mind to wear this to the next gay pride event I attend. Pacsun's sale section never manages to dissapoint. I seriously just shopped there the other day and found the most comfortable jersey maxi skirt ever, built in slip and everything, on sale for $6.99. YEAHHH you better believe I'll be sporting that on this blog in the near future.

Okay okay, so I wanted to have a giveaway all set up for my blogiversary, but I'm a little strapped for cash and didn't manage to get everything in order, mainly because I spent some cash on some SOULMATES supplies so I could FINALLY launch the store and start selling stuff. So...consider this my gift to you guys? I also mentioned in my last post that I really wish I could afford giving out a coupon code, but with six pieces and no idea of how successful (or unsuccessful) this will turn out to be, I'm just too nervous. I will keep my prices as reasonable as possible, and if I do generate some good business here, I will certainly do giveaways and coupon codes in the future! I'm already going to give people unique 10% discount codes for leaving positive feedback on my shop, so...!

I do, however, have one crystal pendant at a discounted price, as it was my first attempt at making these pendants, thus there are some cosmetic compromises. It's overall a nice pendant (I think) and I've worn it out a couple of times to certify that it won't fall apart, and I've gotten TONS of compliments on it. Check it out and see if you like it!

So, without futher ado, here is SOULMATES! (Click the banner to get there!)
