Back from the Dead?

alternative text

The title of this post is very topical, since zombie season is in full swing on my campus. I really wanted to do it because hey, who wouldn't want to play out that role of zombie-huntin' badass? You know it's awesome when Stephen Colbert covers it. However, I was lame and forgot about it/figured that I'd "die" and become a zombie within a few hours. If a real zombie apocalypse ever came upon us, I'd totally be screwed.

It feels like an eternity since my last outfit post. Prolly 'cause of the whole ahhhh-freak-out-cram-no-time-left-why-are-you-watching-youtube-instead-of-doing-shiz that
was my week so far. So I felt less than stellar, and I didn't think my outfits were up to par.

Uhh... crap, I'm delving too far into that black pit called negativity. Begone, begone, I say! *waves around wand*

I actually threw this on at the last minute (how was I supposed to know my friend was ready in the car so soon??), so I wasn't completely happy with it. To me, the proportions seemed off, though I did feel a little bit like Tom Cruise in that one well-known movie. I'm not quite sure if that's a good or bad thing.

And oh oh *gushes a bit like a schoolgirl, oh wait* voila, these are the socks that I ordered from Sock Theory. The only problem with me and knee socks is that they're never technically knee socks. They're always right-below-the-knee socks, no matter how many times I pull them up in vain. They would bunch around my ankles a little bit, but since they were this thin lacy material, I didn't think it mattered. I'm actually very pleased with these socks, they were a hint of sexy without being overt. I would definitely recommend this site (free shipping, what the pancake??) if you have a stocking fetish like me, or just want to wear pretty socks.

I apologize for the craptastic flash, it really doesn't do it justice. When I first saw this, I acted like those people on the home make-over shows: "OH MY GOD OH MY GOD THIS IS AMAZING."

Beautiful socks! And yes, I've been in the same mode all week. Hulu and YouTube are just so else would we procrastinate instead of doing schoolwork?

So I fell in love with your outfit in the first picture and I kept scrolling down and I saw the socks, I'm even more in love with your outfit now.

You can never go wrong with an over sized white shirt-EVER!

THANK GOD YOU'RE BACK! I looooove that first photo of you. Beautiful! Speaking of beautiful, I am jealous of your socks. And your ability to pull them off. Your black and white ensemble with the red scarf is perrrrfection. Mothers are perfection too. This comment is full of connections.
And now rhymes! (?)
