...or at least that's what I told my friends when I coerced them to ditch the typical prom in favor of In n Out and Ironman 3 with me.
and you know what?
It was awesome.
In n Out is always good (Come to Cali, eat our burgers, you'll never leave.)
Ironman 3 was amazing (I mean...Ironman)
and getting to wear this gorgeous dress I picked up (when I say picked up, I mean I fought this woman with hideous acrylic nails who would. not. give. it. up.) at a local thriftstore.
It was the perfect evening, full of wonderfully random conversations, insane giggling, me explaining how I trip on air, laughing at people who stared at the incredibly well dressed group of teens, and making plans for summer.
Everything a good prom should be.
Also, I discovered that you really can blind people with glitter.

I don't know why, but these shoes make me feel like Taylor Swift.
There. I said it. It's out.
I think it's because they aren't just sneakers, and they aren't just glittery, they've got this cool lace up thing happening that is very oxford-ish. And you know who wears a lot of oxfords? Taylor Swift.
Makes sense now, doesn't it?
They're also dead comfortable, which has inspired a lot of skipping. Just thought you'd like to know. Skipping is a lot more fun than yoga.
I'm not really sure what's happening in this outfit, but I know it's good.
My all pink Casio? Good.
My blue plastic sunnies that are a throwback to my preschool days? Good.
My sparkly pink "Cute" necklace (just in case you weren't clear)? Good.
I've hijacked another neighbors yard in the name of a post. I think this is what they call a "gateway crime". Next I'll be stealing their cars to drive to Fashion Week. It's all a matter of time.
Speaking of time, next week is my last week of school! holllaaaaaa
I should probably go finish the 103803290329038 projects I'd rather not do.
Someone come find me in 48 hours,
I'll be the sparkly shoes sticking out from under the house of biology papers.
I ahhhhdore Fitzgerald, but am still rather unclear on my feelings about The Great Gatsby.
I mean, gorgeous technicolor shooting with beautiful original costumes, (there's nothing sexy like excess) but all the people in them seem a bit...sad. In a boring way, not a ooh this could be rather interesting in a Lana Del Rey music video way.
Speaking of the music, I am still not talking to Beyonce ever since that horrendous and tragic excuse of a cover of "Back To Black" they dared to put in this film came to light. I can't even deal with that.
pink and purple, pink and purple, pink and purple, pink and purple
Sometimes, my hair just gets it right.
Then my nails looked like they were matched to my sweater by fashion angels,
and my eyeliner looks good
and it's just a really good day.
I found out Rex and I are in an ad for Don't Feed The Bears in Company Magazine UK (can someone pick me up a copy of that?) and got to have possibly the greatest conversation I've ever held with Laura Brown (look here soon for the sum of that). And that all went down before 10 am.
I'm making "skiddly" a thing. If Eloise can say it, so can I.
How do you guys feel about more beauty (obviously I'm always a beauty but y'know what I mean) posts rather than those spaz shots we call outfit posts?
I'm off, spending the weekend in a forest full of fairies.
If you got all excited because you thought you were going to see photos of snow in the valley...no.
If you actually think it snows in the valley,
I should ask you if you've seen my unicorn wandering around.
I named this post such because I felt like if Snow White had been really California, this is how she would have dressed instead of that silly and impractical dress she would insist on living in.
I know, two posts in a row with the overalls, but you know what?
They're so fabulous I don't give a dwarf.
See what I did there?
I feel so much love for this shirt. It's actually a vintage piece that was clearly meant for a small child due to it's strange shortness, but I dress like a small child so broken rules.
It looks a bit like a dirndl, so I channeled my German roots (Do not say Heidi, Heidi is SWISS, not German) andyodeled during this shoot.
Justina's Got Talent, anyone?
Per a request, I made a bit of a film-ish type deal for this look. Got a bit artsy too. Nothing says artsy like Lana Del Rey. Ok, gotta go round up my dwarves and unicorn. The unicorns' name is Maxine. Just incase you were interested. xx, Justina ps. who is your favorite Disney princess?
