i just want to be a unique special snowflake.

So, Refinery29 was nice enough to include me in their list of "Best and Brightest Chicago Bloggers". Me, really?! I'm that kid that got mercilessly teased in school and ate my sandwiches alone at lunch and secretely pined away about being friends with the Plastics even though they were the ones mercilessly teasing me. So something like this is a pretty big deal and truly goes a long way towards resolving my Emotionally Damaging Teenage Years. Who needs thousands of dollars worth of therapy when you can just write a blog?

If you care: I'm wearing a vest as a top and bag both from a thrift store, spike necklace from a fetish shop, AA skirt that I probably should have ironed, and Gareth Pugh shoes. I was going for a Versus Spring 2011 silhouette (drapes n' pleats, BRILLIANT), except with mall goth vibes. Because mall goth will never stop being hilarious to me.

I just discovered your blog and I really like your style. AAAh, you had to eat lunch alone!! That made me so sad because the same thing happened to me for a whole year in high school, I used to go home and cry everyday... but hey, I think it's people like us who are forced to be creative and end up with mad style. Anyway, congratulations.

You look great! Teenage goth styles that were SO IMPORTANT AND LIKE SERIOUS WHY DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND ME?!?!?! back then are such a great inspiration for today's outfit choices.

I have been following your blog for a month, and I really enjoy coming to it to see an update. I am always inspired by head to toe black ensembles.

This is definitely so mall goth, takes me back to my high school goth days haha. Love those shoes forever and ever.

Roma said...

Congratts! You are cooler then you give yourself credit for. I really like your gareth pugh shoes, they are beyond amazing. Also I love your title, it sounds like something from a kids tv show

Sabina said...

How cool about being featured in Refinery 29! Congrats.

Also I think it's cool that you dress in a way that amuses YOU. Fashion without humor is just dull.

Brandon said...

Mall Goth vibrations will always be a good part of life. Thank you for being my injection of it!

How did you get those infamous pugh shoes I do not know. I only have seen them once before on a girl that works at Seven NY.

I really appreciate that you don't take it seriously and that you really have fun with everything despite the lack of colour. You are the monochrome jester :)

Amy Creyer said...

@Sabina I was talking about this with my friend Rhianna (of Breakfast at Barneys) today. People who take fashion SUPER seriously are missing the point. It's frivolity at the core, so humor is a necessary element. Otherwise it falls flat!

@Meagan - YES YOU, really :)

Mat said...

that's well good news, damn right about the school. i can relate to that. pugh shoes, i'd be sweating at the price of them

The shape of this outfit, upon first look, looks like a dress! A great vintage one, that is! I love how you look something and made it not how it was supposed to be but how it could be." Loved your quote in the previous post!
