we were boxing the stars



Enlisted the help of my bff Sandy to take pictures as we frolicked around a random strip mall. How very quintessential jersey.

We also went thrifting. After five minutes in the store, I had managed to scour a dozen blouses. With the help of Sandy, who has an extremely discerning eye compared to my very lenient one, she was able to help me narrow down the choices to two blouses. I also picked up the most AMAZING dress (well, at least I think so. Sandy thought otherwise) for 6 bucks. Will show in the next post :)




^What an awkward face



Boots: Hunter, Leggings: AA, Shirt: Express, Blouse/Bag: F21, Glasses/Hat: UO, Jacket: Sweetface

Prom is tomorrow and I don't know what to do with my hair or makeup (both of which I'm doing by myself). I also have to brave false eyelashes and stick on nails (both of which I've never used before). Did I also mention that it was going to thunderstorm tomorrow? Wtf.

Please excuse me, as I have to pluck my heinous eyebrows and start to fathom about what the hell I'm going to do tomorrow.

have fun at prom! my high school is having their prom now (obviously the year below me) and apparently it's pouring there! sucks because school tradition every year is to sleep outside of the school on the night of prom after an afterparty but the after party's been cancelled (idk why) and thanks to the lousy weather, no school tradition! sucks.

i too used fake eyelashes for the first time last year from MAC and i can't believe how dumb of me. i think back at prom and i'm like, k, i probably could've gone dressed up in my nice dress but there was really no point in me getting my hair done or make up done, etc. i just felt kind of uncomfortable, but that's just the type of person i am i guess! fake eyelashes are SO weird. i ended up taking mine off the minute i got to the venue, after dealing with them for the good 2 hours at the preparty.

good luck with your fake eyelashes!
