Finally an end to my floral-with-everything crusade. You're all sick of it by now, I'm sure. I wore this outfit a couple of weekends ago, and it was the perfect mix of some-what studious and terribly cute. If I were still a student, I would wear this to class! *sigh* Sometimes I think about high school and university and what I wore back then. These spurts of reminiscing usually end with a bad taste in my mouth. I have always had an interest in clothes and fashion, but growing up my parents never had the money to buy me anything. I always got *crappy* hand-me-downs from my older sisters. When I did start to make my own money when I was 15, I shopped at the ever popular American Eagle (grooooooan). Nearing the end of highschool and for the entirety of university I went through a weird emo-alternative-skater-indie phase. This involved buddy holly glasses, studded belts, graphic tees, hoodies, beanies, skinny jeans and Vans -- all the while oggling at fashion magazines at Chapter's for hours.
As soon as I escaped the education system, I think I finally started to discover my mature girly inner self. Haha. Anyway...I digress. Onwards (..or downwards) to the outfit I'd wear to class if I wasn't such an old stinky post-grad geezer...=).

Until recently I nearly forgot I had this pullover sweater. Ryan got it for me last year. This colour (oatmeal) has since been discontinued at American Apparel, but I've provided a link above where you can still get it in other colours =).
This skirt is by far one of the CUTEST things I bought in Korea. I remember I kept seeing it EVERYWHERE, but just couldn't justify the price (a lot of street vendors were selling it for $60). Finally, on my very last shopping trip I found a street vendor who was selling it for just $45. Knowing it was my last chance, I HAD to get it. I can't really say I got my money's worth though. As cute as it is it's QUITE poofy, making it rather difficult to wear in a casual fashion. No matter--I still love it!
Also note: I've been experimenting with watermarking my photos; what do you guys think? A girl I follow on Instagram started doing this because someone was reposting her photos without sourcing her. This hasn't happened to me (tumblr doesn't count because everybody reblogs), but if it did I'd be pretty cheeeesed! Anyway, what do you guys think? DO you think it's necessary to watermark your own photos before you post them? I mean, it's good insurance...but I can't help but feel that it ruins the photo a bit =P. Anywhoots...

What else to update on...OH!
I'm thinking about starting to do videos...What do you all think of this? Really! Please do give me your input! It's something I've wanted to do for AAAAGES, but have just never had the nerve or the necessities to do it. Now that I know my boyf can take video for me, we've been making all these fun plans to shoot video! So let me know if it's something you'd be interested in seeing!
Wednesday Humpday everyone!
