so the 20th was my 16th birthday and it was a blast! even though i was really upset in my last post, things have taken a turn for the better, or at least for now.
i’m really scared that february will suck because i’m always ‘superstitious’ that bad things happen in february, but idk…so far things are okay.
here is a HUGE haul of all the things i bought after christmas that arrived in january in time for my birthday, plus some really old things i forgot to blog c:
super old from octoberish, but here is a free people rayon dot dress i bought off ebay for around $40. i really like it, but the waistband always rides up when i wear it because my torso is short, so i have difficulty styling it…any advice?
this is a pleated lace dress i bought from topshop with a low V back.
i’ve mentioned on my formspring a trillion times that i’ve always wished for this 3.1 phillip lim silk flower and pleat-embellished dress, but it’s $900, so…
but then i saw this lookalike on topshop that i was stalking in case it came back in my size, and luckily it did AND it was on sale for $35 when it used to be $75!! so i jumped to it and i’m glad i did, because it sold out immediately after!
on the site’s stock picture it was more of an ivory but in person it’s tanner. i like it either way tho!
please excuse this absolutely shit quality photo of me wearing it…i look great i know..T_T
this is a house of the gods shirt i bought from urban-eclectric! i saw it on miranda cosgrove and, as you all know very well now, i love her style and when i saw her wearing this i was dying to have it! they are the only site that carries it, and it was on sale, so i bought it :)
house of the gods is one of my new favorite shirt brands, their shirts are such great quality!
the shirt features deborah/debby/debbie harry, aka blondie!
next is a free people ‘we the free’ crocheted jersey shirt. it’s a cool orange color with crocheted sleeves, with little embellished(?) flower things. i really like it!! the black shirt underneath is also free people but i bought that over the summer XD the best part is, it was only $15 and it was originally $110 on the free people site! wooo.
i also bought this minnie mouse shirt from target as a sleep shirt. it’s slightly cropped but i bought it a few sizes larger so it fits loosely! whoopeeee!
my free gift from sephora for my birthday!! it’s a lip duo from the brand fresh. these are the best chapsticks i’ve ever used!! :)
and finally, one of the best purchases i’ve ever made: the lucky brand jeans canvas carry-all bag.
it is so perfect. and gorgeous. and sturdy and huge. i LOVE it. no words, people. no words.
and even though i’m going to make a separate post about my birthday and pics, here are the things my friends gave me as presents :)
ryan higa as hanate! LOL
yeah, i…don’t know. HI PATRICK LOL SO CUTE
i’ll go more in depth about it in my birthday post, but it’s ironic that i got a forever 21 giftcard because i got kicked out of forever 21 on my birthday!! like i said, another time :)
‘remedial’ because one of my friends apparently has a different present that is in the mail or something? idk haha!
so derpy i love it!
such a pretty bracelet, i love turquoise!
okay, SUPER AWKWARD AND FUNNY STORY ABOUT THIS PICTURE!!!!
so one of my friends and i have the same birthday, and we basically became friends last year because we found that out. so sometimes at lunch when we’re bored we go to the library to watch SNL skits or jimmy fallon snippets because we’re really popular. and so i recently showed her the thank you notes segment of jimmy fallon and she LOVED IT! (who doesn’t!) and so i bought her this book and kept telling her i had a surprise present for her, and then randomly she told me she had a surprise present for me that was coming in the mail.
so then the monday after my birthday, we exchange presents, and mine is wrapped around the book but her present to me is wrapped in like 5 boxes so that i wouldn’t know what it was, and…
WE GOT EACH OTHER THE SAME THANK YOU NOTES BOOK BY JIMMY FALLON!
TROOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLLLLOL. it was LEGIT the weirdest and stupidest thing that has ever happened to me. many lols were had that morning.
anyway. so one of my friends followed a collar tips DIY by honestly WTF and made me these cool pins that attach to your collar!! they look really awesome with my flannels.
thanks for reading this haul post! i promise i’ll be more interesting in the next few weeks.
