saMAN

So, like I mentioned a while ago, I've hid my secret love of nerd glasses for a couple years now. My desire to be unique/different can sometimes prevent me from following a trend...even if I dig it. So, clearly, this is dumb. And clearly, I have some now. They're so fun I want to wear them everyday!
thrifted white lace crop top
thrifted blazer
aa disco pants
payless lace up heeled oxfords

This is basically my uniform, disco pants and blazer, but hey it keeps things simple. I wore this risque lace crop top underneath, don't worry, the jacket never came off. So guess what I did when I was wearing this outfit? I saw...
Samantha Ronson!!!
HARHAR
Okay, lamest shit ever, worst night ever. I can't believe that this club paid her to bring her here.

1) She didn't look up ONCE the whole time I was watching her
2) She played top 40 hits a la Beyonce and Lady Gaga
3) She played TWO beyonce songs in a row and TWO lady Gaga songs in a row

She is ridiculous. Not that I was expecting much more, but honestly. I showed up for the novelty factor...strictly.

bleaching your teeth smiling fresh talking trash under your breath

Yesterday's Outfit
thrifted silk shirt
thrifted brown pumps
bdg ankle cigarette jeans

It has been dumping snow all week so I def did not wear these shoes to school.

RAW

So, I mentioned in a previous post that I am trying out the Raw Vegan diet, and by diet i don't mean diet-ing i mean...the food you eat aka everyone has a diet. I think I'll make one big post about it this weekend but all in all I'm really excited so far. Today is day 9 of eating close to 100% raw and I lost 4 lbs the first week (added bonus)!

I've had to do a lot of guess and test experimenting. I bought a blender last Monday so I can start making green smoothies, but unfortunately this has involved a lot of food going to waste.

For example, last night i turned this beautiful assortment of veggies...
into this...
HARHAR that definitely went down the toilet! maybe this blender thing isn't such a good idea...

inner outer wear

lookbook
So like WOW. I am totally into this look. Ever since seeing the picture of Z in her lil white bustier i've been obsessed with finding something similar and incorporating it into my wardrobe.

here are a few examples of using black bustiers...



but here's the thing...I'm weirdly enamored with (caucasian) FLESH TONE garments
I think that this would give the look a quirky unexpected twist...and un-hoochify it.
I'd also make sure it was a noticeably different color than my skin. I'm pretty pale so I wouldn't actually appear nude.
okay imagine this...
nerd glasses
high waisted trousers
a half bun a la wang
and i have no idea what would go over top of it
it was hard finding examples in the color i'd like...but this is the general idea
ps. strapless is key

so what do you think?
am I crazy?
could this work?
