tonight was my last athletic banquet. ever. why do i go every year? the opposite of "lexy" is "athletic." ooh, AWKZ.

My mum is black's number one fan. Yes, black. This isn't code for some sort of rodent or sporty figure or ninja or anything. Simply black. The colour. BLACK. You know how they say it's best to lead by example? To inspire others through actions? Her utmost support of black - i.e. SHE WEARS IT ALL THE TIME - is exemplary of these notions. Whattta leader!

The point of this pointless story is to place you in my shoes. Picture this: Mum always wears black. Mum buys awesome bag. Bag has COLOUR. Lexy is shocked. Lexy wants to steal bag. Lexy uses bag (and therefore plans to steal the bag, duhhh). COOL BEANS. Basically, I just wanted to brag about this awesome bag that is practically my own. I enjoy it's shape and circular pattern. YUPPERZ.

ALSO WOAH DUDE CHECK OUT THE CLASP? (okay, admittedly, the clasp isn't on properly. the clasp on the zipper is supposed to attach to the clasp on the bag, so it acts as a kind of "lock" and all that fancy jazz but, oh gosh, sheesh, i forgot to clasp it. um, I MEAN, i wanted to stimulate your minds and provide you with intellectual inquiries. like a puzzle. figure it out. BAM.)

Anything else? Um, not really. Actually, quite a bit. Like PROM tomorrow. I'm actually really giddy and excited. My dress is possibly the most ridiculous thing I've worn up to date. Seriously. I erupt into a fit of giggles every time I wear it. I'm excited. It's wack that 24 hours from now, it'll all be done. I hope I have oodles of fun. OH WHO AM I KIDDING. I will be spinning the entire night away, so of course it'll be fun. Even if I'm a lone spinner on the dance floor. *Oh, giggle giggle, as I'm sharing an inside joke with, er, myself....*

But enough about me. It's more about YOU. Why? Because it's the much-anticipated vlog, OF COURSE! (Gosh, I know you were just kidding with me! You've been counting down the days!) (Kidding, but this is to stimulate some sort of "ooh la laaa" and "let's watch this oooh" et cetera et cetera.)

Apologies for 1) extreme awkwardness and 2) potentially wasting your precious time.

Response to the content of the video?
(If you saw that video than consider yourself a part of the ELITE group.) (i.e. me and my dog - the two only human beings creatures that witnessed such glory awkward embarrassment.)

I love love love the bag! Super 70's chic and definitely of this season. Since I have no life I actually watched your full vlog and I must say that I LOVED the questions asked and I did like the answers you gave. They were pretty clear(a bit repetitive like you kept mentioning) and you certainly covered some specific points which I think people need to know. Especially kids in high school. I don't want to sound weird or creep you out BUT you and I have like the exact same ideas on the questions. If I were asked those questions...I would have given the SAME answer. LOL! Over all I loved it. Also...coincidence or not...I am posting a video of me today! First video I ever post and hopefully there will be more to come. Thanks for your comments...I have told you this before and I will say it again...they make my day.
Check out my trendy blog!

Your Canadian accent makes me laugh/smile when I hear it, haha :) But in all seriousness, I wholeheartedly agree with everything you said in the video! Fashion is all about making yourself happy. I didn't realize this until like... the second half of my senior year in high school, so I'm glad you figured it out sooner than I did! You're great!

Hey, Lexi!
Because I check your blog obsessively and I have no life, I actually watched the whole thing. I really liked the questions and your answers were really inspiring. I have to admit that my style is a lot more toned-down than I'd like because I just moved to the United States from China and I'm pretty self-concious about how I look to everyone else. I have a blog, too, and I feel like the Internet alone is where I can express myself creatively. I'm trying to push past my awkward transition stage from little kid to teenager (I'm 13) clothing-wise, and this video was really inspiring. I'm going to try to be more confident in what I wear, like you. (trying not to sound like a stalker!)
Thanks for being so confident! I love your awkwardness and Canadian accent.

HAHA. You sound so awkward in the vlog - but it's okay, it's just really hard talking to a camera :(

I don't know why, but I've never been in to brands - but then again, I can't think of a brand like Hollister etc in Australia. (I actually have no idea what's in Hollister) :| But yeahhh- having the same stuff as others just looks ..really awkward and embarrassing.

In other news, my mum also is a black fan :|

Savannah Burton said...

I love the bag! You and I have similar thieving technique. WE are rascals! I still need to watch the vlog! I am in my living room right now with my family! It'd probably be awkward :)

Jess ♡ said...

AWW YOU'RE SOOOO CUUUUUUTE. My mother is also a black fan, and, awkwardness ftw ;)

I only got to watch the first 2 minutes as I am currently rushing off to work. I WILL BE BACK. DO NOT FRET YOUR PRETTY LITTLE HEAD <3

Ambercrombie DOES smell!! And it's dark so you can't see the hideous low quality shirts you're paying tons for!! It's all a marketing scheme :D
The same thing happened to me expect I was in 5th grade. I begged my mom to take me to Abercrombie and I left with nothing. It just smells so awful in there.

Jen said...

Great vlog by the way!!

Ruta, Look Ugly in a Photograph said...

I love that bag!!!! And yay for PROM!!! I really want to see your dress!! Please post photos.

Haha, awww your vlog is so cute!!!

Your last outfit is amazing too. I want your shoes.

You make an amazing point in you vlog and I really hope more people try to be unique and be not scared to stand out from the crowd.

Bonnie said...

I LOVE YOU EVEN MORE NOW.
You are just as adorable as I imagined you would be in person.
I want to meet you and hang out so we can have awesome adventures together.
That would be perfect.

Woow! It's funny how your mom loves black, which is completely opposite of you who loves colour colour colour. But that bag! Must've been a "close your eyes and do it" moment for her! You would look fab holding it. And omg prom!! I had mine two weeks ago and it was fabulous (as you might have already seen on my blog). Hope yours is just as fun!!

"Amidst a sea of old people clothing" hahaha. I know EXACTLY what you mean. I adored your vlog because you tell stories just as well as I have been lately. As always, you crack me up and have great things to say all at the same time. I expect that your passion and sense of self will carry you easily through life. (One last cheesy thing, okay?) Seeing you in the vlog really highlighted how beautiful and unique you are. In a non-creeper way.

Like I said before, you NEED to show us this prom dress on and in action, mkay? Enjoy the night and hopefully you have a much better date than I did, haha.

I've always wanted to be able to say that I am a member of an elite club and I finally can! I completely agree with everything you said and went through a similar situation a few years back. Fortunately for me, the closest Hollister store was a 4 hour drive so I said screw it and continued to wear dance recital costumes. I also can't stand it when people take fashion too seriously. In the words of Alexander McQueen, "Fashion should be a form of escapism and not a form of imprisonment." Too many people become slaves to fashion and forget that it should be fun and all about wearing what makes YOU happy. I'm glad you wear whatever the hell you want and your style is completely unique and just pure awesome.
p.s. I love black because I indeed am a ninja, so are you sure your mother is being completely honest with you?... :/ Tis an amazing bag regardless. and you must show your prom dress asap!

You crack me up every time! I just love reading thru your awesome blog. It never fails to make me smile, laugh and stimulate my mind. LOL. :)

Eli said...

The cool thing about always wearing color is sometimes wearing all black and it feels so oddly refreshing. It shocks people so much because they're used to seeing you in color!

duckalicious said...
