"My limbs hurt."

I'm too tired to be creative. So, probably one of the most unoriginal and possible lamest things ever, I am stealing a line from myself. Yes, that's right. I just tweeted (?) "my limbs hurt." For anybody observant, this is my title. Nonetheless, this is very true (the hurting limbs thing), due to the fact that I have field hockey practice after school, every day. Please do not misunderstand me. I am not athletic in any way. (Seriously. I dropped gym as soon as I could.) This whole field hockey thing is quite the debascle (I'm thinking of a word, but I can't think of it. This is the closest thing I can get to it. Debate? Maybe, but it's too boring of a word.) Basically, I am forced onto a higher/ more intense team if I want to play, but that's a whole other, boring story... Anyyyywaayyys, the point is that: I am very sorry I haven't had time to post! Between field hockey and homework and eating and sleeping, I simply do not have time! This, honestly, saddens me :(

Anyways, please forgive me and here's Sunday's outfit :)

(Dress [worn as shirt] - thrifted <$1, Belt - thrifted $1, Shorts - Value Village $3, Tights - DIY, Shoes - Mum's)

This "shirt" is actually a "mini-dress." And this "mini-dress" was actually a long dress (literally - to the floor!) before I hemmed it. It's really fun, despite kind of gaudy and medieval. I say this because it's made of this sparkly gold fabric and black velvet. I was rubbing my stomach all day. I hope that's not weird.


I like wearing this ring too. I think the best thing about it is that people compliment it, unknowing that it's really Halloween costume jewelry that I bought at Value Village for $3. It also came with this brass knuckle ring that's kind of like "BAM." It's kind of awesome to tell them that.

(Ring - Value Village $3)

My weeks and weekends are getting pretty chaotic, but I'm always reading your comments and will respond as soon as possible! You can always follow me on twitter if you're interested in, um, my life? I guess? Seriously, I love my followers :) Mostly because I feel less of an idiot documenting the random thoughts of my life on a computer screen. twitter.com/girlwithebowtie
I'm the kind of loser that doesn't get a ton of emails. I was flabergasted when I opened my email and saw that I had some regarding my blog! Seriously ecstatic. You can always contact me there, too! (Wow. I feel like such an arrogant dork...)

On the arrogant dork thing, I might as well go all the way. "*siiighhh* It feels like it was just a few posts ago (maybe because it was? I don't know) when I was celebrating my 50 followers. Here I am at 75..." (Okay, enough of that mumbo-jumbo...) I'm seriously so excited! In celebration, I am opening up a question and answer. (Actually, I am opening one because I secretly always answer questions on blogs/ facebook in my head and I think that it is fun. But let's just ignore that minor detail.) I feel like I won't get a lot, but I want to get some questions so

Please ask me any questions for some good ole' Q&A!

Have a good week everybody! I hope I can post soon and look forward to visiting all your blogs! As usual, you guys rock my purple socks off. (I say that because I just bought colourful socks and I'm kind of excited for my uniform-filled week to be over...) Tata ladies and gents!

Who plays the piano? Hahahahaha! I had to ask it because I trained myself like 2 years ago to check out the background in pictures first and then the people in them...yeah, I know, weird! Woah! Sundays clothing? I don't blame you at all! You know the Kid Cudi post I did..yeah well I died(literally) the next day because I went to bed around 2 that day and partly(mostly) because of that post! I follow you on twitter! I can't help but still admire your ripped tights! LOL! That's hilarious..the ring thing! I would laugh if I complemented someone on something and they told me a funny story like that! I like the ring but the story behind it is so funny! You look Chinese or Japanese from the belt up..like one of those cool dresses originally made in China or Japan. I say China or Japan because I don't know which one, and I hate being ignorant and say something without knowing. First picture in my opinion is the absolute best!!! Thank's for the comment! It's good to know you check my blog out all the time! I do the same just as an FYI. I consider you more as a far away friend I have never met in my life but feel like I have at some point..hmmmm? My piano question was NOT my Q&A question. This is my Q&A question..Like around what age did you start to dress crazy and very unique like you do now? I have another Q&A question! What or who inspired to become a fashion blogger? Oh, by the way..I still want to know who plays the piano. (Thinking what else to say..) Oh, I know this is going to sound really creepy but I will just come out and say it..on twitter there is an option to follow people on twitter on your cell phone and I follow you on my phone just like a few others that I follow on my phone. So whenever you tweet after 12pm I get it on my phone...just letting you know.
check out my trendy blog!
