16.1.10

at risk of sounding supremely mainstream... you're looking like a fool with your pants on the ground.

What would the world be without quirks? As much as society pushes us to conform to one another - telling us what is beautiful, what is trendy, what is in - I think that it's the quirks, the off-beat stuff that make the world amazing. It'd be boring otherwise. Plus, they're hilar (that's cool kid talk for hilarious. GET WITH IT.). For example, when my dad gives out codes (ex. postal codes) on the phone he doesn't say the letters - he says a name corresponding to it. Point: instead of saying "The code is VLNLBG" (note: not an actual code of significance. Don't you go plotting against me. Insert evil face.), he barks at the phone, "Victor! Larry! Nigel! Bob! Greg!" Such a weird thing to do, but also funny. Um, probably one of those "youhadtobethere" stories. Because I was ROFL. (for real. I was on the floor. Laughing. And rolling? Okay, maybe not rolling.)

Pretty simple outfit. One of those "RUREADYYETZOMG?!HURRYUPLADY" outfits.

This had to be posted. Solely because I look like a bunny. If Macs had Paint (anyone know how to download Paint on a Macbook?! Send me a link?!), then I would totally draw bunny ears on me.

Headband obsession continues. This one kind of looks like a diseased holly, and I enjoy it.

Love this ring. My sister has a similar one in mint green, so I must plot a way to steal it/ wear it/ own it, without her knowledge. I ponder how this will be accomplished.

Special thanks to everyone who has given me awards the past few months! I'm such an ungracious awardess (you know, like "host"-ess. But not.. ?) and haven't recognized them on my blog. So to you all - THANK YOU SO MUCH. It totally makes me feel special and smile on the inside. Anyways, I thought I'd share some of my own "quirks" (slash I'm not that interesting, so I'm really pushing for these ones).

RANDOM QUIRKS YOU LIKELY DON'T CARE ABOUT 101:
- I strangely get along better and converse better with quiet people over loud people
- I get progressively boring after I meet someone. Like, I don't know what to say to you? This is awkward. I'm bored of you. You're probably bored of me. It's actually a rather unfortunate trait.
- At school dances (ha-ha, yeah. go spirit!), I often have to pretend I know the lyrics to the songs they're playing. I really need to gain knowledge about mainstream songs.
- I hate malls. Period.
- I love a good pun. Or a bad pun. Essentially all puns. Recently, my friend's jacket pocket broke and I called it a "RIP-OFF." Hahaha. Get it? I thought it was kind of hilarious. Kind of pleased with myself.
- I wish strangers would smile at me. Why are people so unfriendly these days ?
- I dislike American Apparel. I feel like I'm the only one.
- I secretly find Facebook notes incredibly fascinating. They give so much insight on people I don't even talk to. Is that weird? (Um, never mind. Don't answer that.)

Anything weird about you? A fun fact or two? What your kwurxzzzz? (aka, QUIRKS.)

Thanks so much to everyone stopping by! Big thanks to Style Fool for this supaaaa awesome featchaaaa. (Yes, I just created new blog slang). I'm so excited, thanks girl!

Happy ohmygosh-its-mid-January-already!

P.S. Nice to hear all of your thoughts on the last Haiti post. Regular posts are resuming (as you can tell), but still keep the victims on your mind.

Love the purple jacketness! As for bunny ears: http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?name=Shop&op=listing&product_id=985173 ? Haha.
And I am the queen of horrible pun making--to the point where my friends are like "shut up -_- you're embarrassing me" but in a good way of course!

Erika said...

Ohmigosh first of all I cannot stand malls either! I prefer standalone stores - like huge Forever 21 shops. They are so much more pleasant!

Second, I absolutely love your blazer - it looks just like the one on the Louis Vuitton runways. J'adore!! :)

emily said...

like everyone else, looooove the purple blazer. :) and haha, i do the lyrics thing too. i'm actually quite goos at it. it's a skiiiiilllllllll....

Gizelle said...

i know! i like the quirks...it's what makes things interesting... normal is sooo boring..:D

quirks about me..hhmmm, i hate the smell of orange peel... and i like the scars on my body as it reminds me of what i went through (mostly from being a kid..and playing flag football!)...:D

ps. love the close-up of the purple blazer..:D and the floral dress!

Emma said...

-I also dislike malls
-i can't get enough of the colour seafoam green
-i have an undeniable love for my cat (please don't think i'm weird)
-the first thing i notice about people (sometimes the only thing) is their outfits
-i could seriously watch skins or glee all day long
-for me, a hot cup of tea makes every situation better

The ring needs to be stolen. Definitely ! :))

Have a fun weekend!

malou said...

Awww, i love, love, love that picture of you looking like a bunnny. Cutestuff. Hehe, hotstuff but as in cutestuff. Okay i'll stop being strangely odd. :) Odd. (LOVE THAT WORD. IT SOUNDS SO BRITISH. AND THAT's NOT A BAD THING.) Okaay, anywho. You have an awesome blog. <3
Love, Malou. Hehhe, I've never written such a LONNG comment. With so many CAPITALS. Love , Mallou.

Ali said...

If you want your sister's ring, all you've gotta do is take it then replace it with something similar, like an avocado. Mission accomplish'd.

I lovelovelove your blazer. *___* It's such an exciting color!

Michael Tornato said...

I really like single buttoned suit jackets. I think it's different and very simple. Like simple-elegance. I used to have a tan suit jacket which apparently I lost, but I really want it back because it would have been perfect to roll up the sleeves and wear. I like the idea of rolling up the suit jackets sleeves because it makes it look more casual than formal. Your dress is to die for! I love it so much! Your ring is wicked cool as well! By the way, I agree with your speech on how the quirk's of the world is what make this world interesting. I think I love them as much as you do. Well, maybe just a little bit less, but you get what I am saying...or maybe you don't.

that purple blazer is rad. i love this whole look. and i know what you mean about quirks. i also wish strangers would smile at me! i always feel so odd when i smile at strangers and they give me a blank stare as if saying, "why on earth would you dare smile at me.' i don't get it. & i also dislike american apparel- you are not the only one. i personally thinks its overrated. xx

IDYLLE said...

Your ring is cute and I don't like AA either. Everything is expensive and never goes on sale and their models all look like scanks.

Anyways... I don't know what channel Project Runway is on (I realize this is after the fact, but whatevs). I just download it on my computer because I don't even think my tv is hooked up! Sorry!

Wendy said...

So its currently raining where I live. And I'm pretty miserable because I have seasonal affective disorder (S.A.D.) but this post totally lightened up my mood.

I get progessively boring, I run out of witty remarks. I hate malls, they are depressing. I always pretend I know the songs at dances, and american apparel is nothing special in my book.

you are adorable, bunny face and all, haha. i love this look, very eighties without feeling overdone. you should try smiling at strangers first, i do it sometimes when i'm in a decent mood, and the results are usually pleasant!

Kiki said...

Hi there, just found your blog and am in love! I'll definitely be following now.

Oh gosh I couldn't imagine my life without the ability to amateurishly alter my photos on paint (there's a quirk for you). Your outfit still looks awesome though, even without the bunny ears! x
