"it's a skin condition."

I'm going home today! Good lord, I am SO READY for my puppy and my own bed. I look awake because this photo was taken on day 1 of Fashion Week, which feels like so long ago that it may as well be its own epoch of my life. BFW (before Fashion Week) and AFW (after Fashion Week) will be the new guides of references for my twenties. Pathetic, yes? Anyway, these moon leggings are my ~new favorite thing~ and I think it's funny how they make me legs look like I have alien legs. It reminds me a lot of the pilot episode of Invader Zim where Zim is trying to pass for a human in his new classroom, but Dib is pointing out all of his alieneqsue features and Zim responds simply with "it's a skin condition." Kind of a great metaphor for how I feel about fashion blogging in general! Don't understand the reference?! Watch here (start at 8:08)!

I FOUND A FASHION BLOGGER WHO MAKES INVADER ZIM REFERENCES!
I would buy out Hot Topic in Invader Zim merchandise if I could. Such a great show! Still rewatch it time to time.
Awesome outfit too. Imma fiend for your glasses, I own a similar style seeing I collect vintage frames. Been following your blog for a while now, love u/ur style!

those leggings are soooo magical. Invader Zim happened when I was about 5 but I respect the old Cartoon Network reference. I was more of a Dexter child.

I love everything about this outfit, but the leggings top it off. Welcome back to Chicago and it sounds like you had a very lovely NFW experience!
