THUMBS UP FOR AWESOME SWEATERS
AND THE PARK HOUSE
AND UGLY COLOURS
AND ARIEL RAHN
AND CHICKEN WINGS
AND BEST FRIENDS
AND DOG POOP.

okay... maybe not the last one.
BUT REGARDLESS:
all of the above things have a meaning attached to this sweater. and NO MATTER how gross or weird or wacked they may be, they all seem to be good memories.

i love clothing that has stories attached to them.
i know that all of my faves have hidden stories!

i want to know about your lovely clothing stories. what article has been with you through thick and thin,
warm and cold,
north south east AND west!

email

bless!

f r e s h e f f e c t s


im a big girl that has finally caught up with the rest of the lookbooking crowd.
i installed photoshop to edit ma photos! thats how the above look was created.
(not that i actually know how to use it... it actually took me 3 hours to get the finished product, and i wasn't even going for anything like that. and the one on the right was a mistake gone right. ima twit.)
 
regardless;
 
i am going to try to be creative for lookbook. apparently people are looking more at the quality of the photo/ how good they edited it rather than the actual quality of what they are wearing.
which bugs the shiit{ake mushrooms} out of me.
 
BUT LETS LEAVE THAT FOR A LATER POST
 
this is a response to an email that i recieved from Emily R. of Washington DC.
she states:
 
"hi cassandra!
{rest of email body}
could you do a post about what's in your purse? i am just kinda interested to know lol. not being nosey, just curious to see what weird things you carry!haha"
 
suuuure 
 
here we go!
 

pictured above is the amazing guess purse that my mother and father bought for me last christmas!


1) My Planner:
Alysia Plowells. I love you.
This thing is a life saver, especially with my new and very different schedule in korea!
AND IT IS BARBIE. HELLO.

2) Jesus Keychain:
Cause jesus is awesome. And so is Ariel Rahn ( who bought it for me! )
And it holds me house key!

3) BURBERRY WALLET:
I am an amazing shopper and discovered this gem whilst looking in the $1 BIN AT MY LOCAL SALLY ANNE. BURN SHAKALACKA


4) Blush:
Because people who know me KNOW how much i love my blush.


5) gummy gum gum:
Great entertainment when you are bored. Tastes good. Nice to have when you are a bit hungry!

6) Lip Stain:
I fit right in with the girls here in Korea. Everyone LOVES lipstain, and thanks to Jesus Christ, i have a very high quality / expensive lipstain.
<3

7) Floss!:
Because I hate it when i have a piece of steak caught between my teeth. So annoying!

**not pictured above but still as equally important is:**
ipod
cellular device
tampons
more makeup.
aunt jen's goddess stone

thanks emily!
i hope that this answered your question!
^ sorry if my stuff wasn't as weird as you thought it would be. teehee ^

things that crawl in the night

LET'S TALK ABOUT THE THING THAT I WAS DREADING THE MOST:

THE SCHOOL UNIFORM

for people who know me and my school, they know that i have never had to wear anything close to a uniform. everyday was my chance at a fashion show, i always made sure to never wear the same thing twice in a small period of time (around 3 months). sometimes, i only wore something ONCE a year.

 Now I have to wear the EXACT same thing.
every flipping day.


now, it isn't as bad as i thought it would be. { note: AS bad }
the design of it and the colours don't drive me as crazy as the fact that i can't wear any accesories!
ITS SO PLAIN, I CAN'T DEAL WITH IT!

nonetheless, here is a photo of it!


vest, button-up dress shirt, KNEE LENGTH SKIRTKEEGANDOHERTY, 5 year old tie { see below } and HELLO KITTY SOCKS. EEEEEK!


{ NOTE THE ZIPPER }

~~~~~~~

** to my peeps, homeboys, and bitches back in canada**=
STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT HOW TOUGH THE RULES ARE AND ETC. YOU DO NOT HAVE IT HARD AT ALL. YOU CAN WEAR WHATEVER YOU WANT. AND YOU CAN WEAR MAKEUP. AND JEWELRY. AND SHOES.
STOP IT.

oh yeahhhh. forgot to mention the shoe thing:
customary in korea, it is VERY rude to wear your shoes indoors. hense, everyone wear slippers. (adidas sandal things) 

^^ these uglyass things^^

if you forget your slippers, guess who is walking around in socks for 9 hours?

now that this rant is over, give me your opinion below:
