i wanna be a rock stahhhh.

I'll let you in on a little secret: sometimes after I get ready in the morning, I pretend that I'm so fly and glamorous, living in NYC. I'm about to rock Fashion Night Out, and hang out with the likes of Alexander Wang. I'm about to dance down Times Square and flourish in the city lights. I'm about to have my photograph taking for the Sartorialist! And then ... I remember that all I'm doing today is having brunch with the family and tackling an english essay and math assignment. Please don't tell me that I'm the only one that does this!

I always feel so cool wearing homemade clothes. I hope it's not a sign that I'm an egomaniac, or anything..

I'm always wrapped up in my own bubble when class gets boring (which is, like, all the time!). I pretty much always pretend that I'm in NYC. Sometimes high school seems petty, which is probably a really rich statement for a high school student to say. But I think that it's just that I'm really excited for the future! There's so much that I want to do with my life!

For all you fashionista friends out there, what crazy dreams do you have? Anything that has to do with this crazy industry called "fashion"? I'm really interested in what kind of dreamers you guys are! :) Thanks for stopping by!

laur. said...

I completely understand! I do the same exact thing.. I just always tell myself that I have to preserver through high school (which is most definitely petty) so that I can accomplish everything I want in the future. My dreams: either a fashion magazine editor, fashion stylist, or an actress :) Haha I guess I dream pretty big. Also I am in love with your outfit!

Thanks for the comment!

Carrie said...

Sweetie, you look so cute in the last picture. You look so happy when you're laughing. I can relate to your post. I remember what it was like to be in HS and have this desperate feeling to move forward in life. Don't worry; you'll get there. And once you're there, you'll still want to keep moving forward.

Lovely outfit! Love the pink, lace blouse and your necklace as well. Happy halloween, and I hope you have a good weekend.

Uniqua said...

Gabby said...

Again, great outfit. And ya, I've had that dream many times but mine has more in it. I'm the new It Girl, partying with the hottest celebrities and wearing the new collection from Marc Jacobs that I got as a gift from him. :)

Diary of a Young Designer said...

Lol, dear you are sooo not the only one! I totally space out in class also and dream about living in London, walking around the city in a lovely trenchcoat and boots and carrying a starbucks latte in my hands while I search around for inspiration for designs.

Andie said...

i love your skirt and your top!
haha i daydream all the time too. okay not really like that, cuz my closet totally ruins the mood like i sometimes i fall asleep in it...
i daydream about me being a part of the fashion industry. im a super awesome like young designer, and my name would be plastered on papers and magazines "ANDIE DOES IT AGAIN", okay well not exactly like that because thats probably in every film montage about some kid doing something extraordinary, but you get my point right? oh and then im off to my private jet to meet up with my super hot boyf who just adores me. dont know who though, maybe indio downey...OMG IF WE GET MARRIED THEN ROBERT DOWNEY JR. WILL BE MY FATHER IN LAW!!! SCORE!!!
oh but one time i was daydreaming in school and my teacher burst my bubble with "1 more minute left" *pop! looks to her desk* OMG I ONLY HAVE 1 MINUTE TO FISNISH THIS QUIZ AND THE ONLY THING IVE ANSWERED IS MY NAME!
dont let this happen to you
KEEP DREAMING SISTAH!

Joanne Faith said...

Firstly, might I saw that I love that look of yours. The top is gorgeous, I have a think of pale lacey looking pieces.

Sometimes when I'm walking home I like to pretend I'm walking along 5th Avenue to my apartment...dreams a free!

catherine said...

love this look, wearable and vintage. Denim with soft fabric it's great

Erika said...

I don't think it's a sign you're an egomaniac. I just think it has to do with the fact that you're thrilled to know that you are wearing something original - you won't spot anyone else donning the same thing as you! :)

The only crazy dream I can think of is about over the knee boots. I kept saying to everyone that I was too short to wear them; then I'd go to bed and have these wonderful dreams about wearing a pair of black suede ones. Needless to say, I finally broke down and bought a pair - and I adore them! :)

Couture Cookie said...

I wish my life was like that... I live in NYC and for me it's pretty much just about working, paying rent and once in a while meeting up with other friends who are just as overworked and stressed out as me. I'm dreaming about a VACATION.

Blau von T said...

Posh said...

This is great, you look so cute! Really love your hair too, it looks like silk! <3

Sophie said...
