In the Flowers







I often see these strips of flowers in the garment district, and I always spend a few minutes debating on whether or not to pick some up. I inevitably leave without them, because anything that involves an exorbitant amount of hand sewing makes me want to gouge my eyes out, and I rather need these eyes of mine. One day I will find the ambition to do something a little more extravagant, but in the meantime I like the simplicity of one little flower on the shoulder of a t-shirt. Best of all, I didn't have to make it.

p.s. Completely off topic, but I'm really excited about True Blood tonight!! Anyone else?

  5. This outfit looks so classy and yet so cool! And your face ... I really love it :3 You're so pretty!

    And I wish I was living in the States ... hardly no one here is interested in True Blood. I've read all the books (except for the last one I think, gotta catch up on this) and I just ordered the 2nd season on dvd from the UK. Didn't have the time to watch it yet, but now I MUST! ^^

The walk by celebrities down the red carpet at the cheap pandora bracelets annual Academy Awards is probably just as anticipated by television viewers all over the world as the presentation of the awards themselves.
