"lady talk/times" over vanilla ice cream and stuff

I'm still here! And if you are reading this, you are too! Was kinda looking forward to chillin' in da afterlife with my crew and your crew and meeting up in heaven's bar around 2 (Biggie reference, showing off my ~culture and ~good music taste) but sadly (?) that was not meant to be. Which was a good thing because really great people like Tavi are around to hang out with on unexpectedly warm and always expectedly windy Saturdays. Chicago = Windy City is no fucking joke. We sat on a park bench for a while talking about lady things but the wind kept blowing our hair into our moody gothy girl lipstick, which is a Real Problem facing goth girls in America today. Equally difficult is eating food, so we blotted as much as we could and the result was kind of lulzy:

(some of these photos are on her blog but I want to post them anyway so uh, deal with it? INTERNET.)




Wearing spooky lipstick is really enjoyable but not so conducive to normal human biological things, like consuming food. 


 (Comme des Garcons for H&M jacket, Comme des Garcons shoes, AA mesh blouse, UO skirt, thrifted bag, spike necklace from a fetish shop)

Still dressing like it's Proenza Fall 2010. That collection has sunk into my consciousness so deeply, I don't forsee myself being unable to shake its influence anytime soon. Leather and black and blue and green and babydoll dresses and collars and pleats and spooky schoolgirl moods are all things that = me. It touched me so profoundly for a multitude of reasons which I should probably write about at some point.


Tavi looked incredible and riotous as per usual. Floral prints everywhere, a sight for sore eyes after a seven-month-long Chicago winter.

These outfits are balling, especially your skirt/motor jacket combo. And who needs normal human biological things, anyway?

Thanks for your comment on my blog re: non-D-bag Chicagoans. Happy to count myself among them, and you as well. Now, where are the others? ARE there others?!

Amy Creyer said...

That's the skirt we both have!

And Gentlewoman, yup, that's my new absolute favorite magazine. Now I've just got to find issues one and two...

Haha, what a vision. Two goth bloggers, blotting before eating.

And my, Tavi is really growing up. It's weird that I've been aware of her for so long that I can now see how her face is changing as she's growing up.

Awww you two look really really lovely <3 What a blog by the way I'm going to follow you!

I love that you and Tavi are friends but I have to say you are a very credible blogger in your own right. Absolutely adorable posts etc. I'm in love.
