I was just typing in one of those passwords to verify my comment on a blog when I saw that the nonsense word was "coldaga."
And I thought: WELL IT AIN'T COLDAGA ANYMORE, PUNKS.
These pictures were actually taken yesterday, when I walked around campus wearing the bright yellow babies that I mentioned awhile ago. Because they were such an unexpected color, I had to plan out how to wear them. Call it garish if you will, but purple stripes + yellow seemed like a good idea in my head. I added on some basic black and pearls to ground it in classic elements, so the crazy fashion train wouldn't careen off of the metaphor track. Did that make any sense? It did... in my head.
One remark I got from a friend, who happened to be wearing some bitchin' aviators at the time, said: "I need sunglasses just to look at your tights."
I love dressing for fun, and bright colors are a must when it comes to putting the fun in fashion. Wait, that doesn't work. Fashfun? That just sounds like the most exciting fascist government EVER. Needless to say, these tights got me a good number of comments. Most of them were very nice-- like a schoolgirl (not that I'm NOT one, of course), I was very flattered by the pantomiming of "nice tights!" from a classmate, the random friendly-looking man walking by, and this one dude who said my legs looked like bananas-- wait, what. "Yeah, and with your brown shoes, you look like a banana."
Then I said he made a bad joke and he got all huffy. We're cool, though. But now I can't get "Banana Phone" out of my head. And now you can't either mwahahahaha.

Aw look, a decent picture of my photographer and I. Well, a decent pictures of her, at least. I feel like this image shatters the fashion blogging mirror OH MON DIEU.
Y'know how they sometimes feature an outfit and show the little changes "from day to night?" Well, this is one of those times, so hold onto your seatbelts (and belts in general)! Anticlimax aside, I just swapped my lovely giant purple striped sweater (though it has a slight pink stain on the back, boo) for an asymmetrical black top. What I do like in this version is that the pearls stand out more; 'cause I'm a totally classy broad like that, ahem.
