Blogging Apathy.

I have plans to do some actual blogging/writing about my feelings/thoughts on the blogger subject lately, for a few months now, but when the time comes I somehow can't be bothered. Mostly I don't feel that I have a space in it anymore, or at least not in the same way, but I also don't want to stop doing it. I like snapping a few shots of an outfit here or there, but it's kind of hard not to feel like I should be making some of it, or that I'm holding on to some weird internet space that doesn't really exist in the same way anymore.

Dress: vintage from jessjamesjake on etsy, Sweater: vintage L.L. Bean thrifted, Shoes: vintage from allencompanyon etsy, Bag: J. Crew (current season)

I also like, kind of don't care? That a lot of people seem to have moved on from it, or that it's a whole new animal now. Maybe I'll just keep doing this funny little thing. 

I've always liked to record things in a somewhat public fashion--blame it on those early days on livejournal. It's nice to have a record of things. My skin is changing, I'm trying to grow my hair out, rewriting resumes, trying to work on little creative projects, reading old favorite books. It's that all the usual while starting to look for change kind of thing happening around here. 

I'm not certain how to uh, style myself lately? I'm constantly switching between a messy layered mess of sweaters and leggings and clothes appropriate for doing something messy, and a pretty polished made-up look. I can't decide if I want milky pastels or darker things, I have days where I absolutely can't deal with vintage and others when I'm totally obsessed with it.

I picked up this dress from Jess over the summer, because I'm a sucker for a dark floral, before she even got it into the shop. It's one of those really good 1970s Young Edwardian dresses I always hope to find in a Salvation Army somewhere and never, ever do. She did though so, I'm lucky enough that way! The sweater is a bit old, I'm not sure how much life it's got left in it but I like it's bulky, itchy character. I didn't realize how terrible it smelled of mothballs till I got it home (one of those, when surrounded by old stuff problems) and away from it's dusty environment. A nice little sun bath, and an actual spray bath of various liquids seems to have done the trick. 

For now I just wish it would snow, although I'm pretty okay with not wearing boots for a little bit more.

Thanks to my very nice boyfriend David for obligingly snapping these before heading out for haircuts and coffee <3 p="">
