Pants and Prom time

So I uh tried on my Earnest Sewn and they are skin tight. The measurements were 24x34 but apparently my waist is not 24 inches, so if I get any fatter they won't fit. Aren't these jeans really just another trend or something. . .I don't really want to be uncomfortable anymore. So I vow that these are going to be the last jeans I buy for a while, for the very least.
Chambray trousers in spring and wool trousers in winter might be a better idea. . ., and since my mom gets hers all custom made in Shanghai I guess that's what I'll be doing. It's about the price of the Topshop ones, ($80), and superb quality. Because yes, in China, these craftspeople are not appreciated. Complicated haircuts cost $2, Jesus Christ.

Oh and on another note, all the prom happenings. Is it just me or are the little skiny F21 style tubes getting to be too much? I mean I understand that not a lot of people can get high couture gowns from Jean Paul Gaultier or Dior, but there are costumes out there for less than $200, that actually resemble dresses, and not shiny tubes. The F21 ones are just. . .ew.

Modcloth is where I'm going to get mine, if all else fails. they have all the unique designs from indie designers, and if they close down before my prom happens I would have to do a lot a lot of math. (See I'd only get to New York with all those shops if I can make this girls math contest. . .pretty much)

This dress was already sold out. . .to prom kids with good taste. It's under $100 and looks like something a girl would wear, not a cheap hooker.
This one is not sold out, and has such a painterly print. . .I think it was under $70.

The cut and design of this one is beautiful, so is the color. It's simple and beautiful in a subtle way, and much better than F21. Oh this is $200.

Yeah the lace inlays are absolutely my favorite. This was sold out, and it does sort of resemble a tablecloth but not in a bad way at all.

Navy blue is what I want. . .a cooler design than this though. But any normal person looking for a dress, not art could pick this baby up.
I guess thrift stores are really good places, and consignment shops, but only through many many trips could you actually find the one dress you really like, and that's a bit annoying.

Because I'm a very inspiring person.

Junya Wantanabe Spring '09, Mandelbrot fractals, wannabe Mandelbrot art, flowers, flowers, baubles, flowers, chocolate bars wrapped in paper, butterflies, pretty person in even prettier mask.

Junya Wantanabe Spring '09, colorful loop, crystal apple, flowers, foresty background, spider web, crab, flowers, butterflies, birds.
I didn't post mostly because of some big tests in important classes. TRUE
I didn't post because of my sister's long AP exams. FALSE.
"Junya Wantanabe looks like she went to a picnic and wrapped the thing around her head." -my sister.
I don't feel like clothes right now, so this is supposed to all inspire you and your mom so much that you want to wrap your Mother's Day picnic around your head.
Happy Mother's day!
Happy AP exams!
Happy there is month of school left and fun finals!
Happy picnic blankets!
Happy grass inside the blankets!
Happy hello kitty!
Happy Mandelbrot!
Happy butterflies!
Happy I took a walk and the little green worms didn't land on my head today!
