A slice of my brain

I found a bolt of vintage fabric at a thrift store in Orange and had my grandma make me this dress for my 18th birthday. I just need to find another occasion to wear this dress to!
A collection of curiosities that line my bookshelf. Why golden retrievers aren't always depicted as wearing backwards baseball caps...I'll never know.
I like to make little felt pouches for my gadgets 

I need to hang this up!  

A glimpse into my room up in LA (I'll be moving out before Friday...sad). The dress is from a thrift store.
Everything but the skirt (Which is from AA) is thrifted. I can't play guitar at all but this pictures almost makes it seem like I could.
me and a lamb guy. I have a pet peeve about fashion bloggers always making the same dumb smirky/sexy face hence I like to post pictures of me smiling like a normal person. 

It's been a hectic week and it's just heating up. I have 3 finals on Wednesday and I have to move out of my apartment before Friday so I've been busy, busy, busy! I just finished writing my part of a group research project and I'm so glad I'm finished but I have to read like 500 pages of material between now and Wednesday. GAH. I promise I will visit everyones blogs and see what everyones been up to but for now, as soon as I finish writing this sentence I have to hit the books :*(
