This is Noise

Years and years since I've last posted. Or something like that. I have two days till my dance show. I am so excited/nervous. I want to do really well and be amazing and wow everyone and earn myself a spot in senior. One can only hope. If I don't get in, so it goes. I mean, Sharon knows what she's doing and she knows if I'm ready or not. And if I get in or not, I still love dancing and it will still be super fun.
So the other day (yesterday) I read on Perez Hilton's fashion blog, Coco Perez, that Taylor Momsen apparently told all her fans to stop dressing like her and to have their own style, that people were copying her hair, makeup etc. See Perez's story here. In my personal opinion, I think this is kinda self-centered and silly. I mean, the whole bleach blonde, eyeliner, edgy style is all part of Momsen's style from Gossip Girl, her character Jenny Humphrey dresses that way, so isn't Taylor gathering her inspiration from the character? I mean I hardcore dig all of Miss Jennifer's outfits in the show, but aren't there wardrobe people that give her those clothes? So it's not like Miss Momsen had these great, unique, and intense ideas for clothing all on her own either. She's kind of taking credit for a personal style that isn't really hers.

Those are some super hot pics of her badass look. But lest we forget her original Gossip Girl look, she doesn't seem to be taking any credit for that cutesy "Little J" attire...

Not that it's a bad look... Just a hell of a lot different. Don't ever forget your roots :]
Enough of my Gossip Girl obsession, for now.
You know you love me, xoxo, Beans

Bien la.
GaGa ♥. I am listening to her. Mmmm.
So yesterday I went to dance, and my lovely dance teacher Sharon got one of those multi-tying dresses. You know, the ones that you can tie like 25 different ways... Most popular ones are probably from American Apparel.. But anywaysss, that got me thinking, I don't have a plain jersey summer dress. When you're at a loss for what to wear cuz it's just to stinking hot, they are so handy. And if you get one that you can tie many different ways, you don't get bored too quickly. But, since they are so often just a plain colour, you need to do something to add a splash of colour. Or at least I do, because plain is not me. Whatsoever. Normally I would say pile on the accessories baby, but if you're wearing it cuz it's too hot, you wouldn't want three heavy necklaces on anyway. So I'm in a bit of a conundrum. I'm thinking of investing in some wooden beaded bracelets, or hemp braided bracelets, because they're not insanely hot. And crazy cool sunglasses obviously. It doesn't sound like much of an inspired outfit to me though, any ideas on how to spice it up that wouldn't make one fry? Summer fashion is difficult that way, I mean, there are many great pieces, but sometimes you're just too sweltering to make cute outfits, you'd rather throw on shorts, a tank top, and flip flops. I vow to try to not to fall into a fashion rut this summer.
Oh gish, at work today there was a mass rushcat and I felt as if like the Subway spirit overtook me, and I worked like a fool, making sandwiches like a pro. It was pretty intense. As far as Subway sandwiches go. Hehe.
I am having a date night tonight with my boyfriend, we are going to see movies and eat and love. I am excited, we haven't been on a non-bar, two-person date in a long time. I'm hoping to wear a very pretty ensemble as well. :]
I need to get a notebook or something beside my bed, I always think of interesting things to write at night, and I'm like, 'OH! I should blog about that!" But then the next day, the thoughts are gone, poof. So it goes. Point being, if I had a notebook I could write down said revelations.

Oh yoginis unite.
We did this massive bullshit knee job in yoga today that consisted of rolling a wooden stick through our knee joints to "open them". It was horribly painful. And I have a bad knee to begin with. It started in a moshing accident. Oh Chiodos ♥ What can I say? Craigery tells me to beat the shit out of people and start a circle pit, I can only oblige happily. It resulted in a rather awks fall, which I did nothing to take care of for quite a few months. I got it checked out and I had tore my lateral meniscus, had some bone stabbed into my cartilage, and have something long name itis, which means I have water in my patella or some shit like that. So then I had to get physio and have my knee electrocuted twice a week but it was wicked expenseive so I was like peace i'll wear a brace when it hurts. And i take pills for it. But anyhoo it was not so pleasant in yoga today. Pleasant looks like peasant. I'm debating buying a chill peasant blouse soon, but i have a huge bum, so it might just make me look like a square. Flowy tops were not made for the curvy.
I'm really excited for what I'm wearing tonight, I'm going to take pics and post them, I have a feeling it'll look fab.
Now I must go work.
