Aug. 12: the thunder that i stole from your windowsill.


I measured my waist the other day, when I was yet again searching ebay for a nice red belt (eyeing one as we speak) and much to my surprise, I have quite a tiny waist. I didn't lose any weight but it seems like volume has been shifting over the past few months. Is it the final moments of puberty? Is it a change in eating habits I'm completely oblivious to? We'll never know. 
So I'm guessing this whole *my waist is completely straight and I hate it* thing is in my head. So I wore this dress without the red belt I don't have yet. Mildly deriving the attention to my legs though; I love how overknees give an outfit a bit of a twist. And oddly enough, they make my legs look really thin. 
In case anyone's wondering, the dress and overknees are from H&M, the booties from Urban Outfitters.

Lookbook's being a total fuckhead lately, so no hype widget today. I tried uploading this pic and it seemed to work just fine but then it kept vanishing and shit, it got on my nerves. It's been like this for a week now, very annoying.
Besides from the site being one huge bug, I don't know if I like LB much anymore. Too many 14-year old wannabe hipsters that come from their tumblrs full of galaxy pics to worship the skinniest girls there and then moan in the Secrets thread that they want to have an eating disorder too.
It fuels my need for trolling. Not good.

For funz, I joined Chictopia. It's fun actually, the site's quite hard to navigate but the general atmosphere is so much more positive.

I'm in physiotherapy for my hip now, and well basically the treatment to my inflamed tendon is RUBBING THE ACHEY BIT FOR 15 MINUTES STRAIGHT. Eight more sessions to go, god I wish it was over already.
No pain, no gain.

The dress looks great on you. I share your opinion on Lookbook. It seems like the clothes don't even matter anymore. Some of them look like they're past dead, so freaking skinny, and everybody's shouting they look amazing.

I came across your blog through chictopia & it's lovely! This dress looks gorgeous on you & makes me sad I passed it by the other day. I picked it up, admired the dots, and put it back down telling myself I didn't need it. But it looks absolutely darling!

Lovely blog! We just found it on The Fashion Spot. Looking forward to reading through all of past posts. We totally agree with what you've said about Lookbook. Chictopia is so much more postitive, and hopefully it will stay that way and not turn into the skinny praising paradise that Lookbook has become!

Hey there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. If you'd like to ask a question, be sure to leave an e-mail address or whatevz so I can get back to you, because otherwise I'll just get all awkward and forget to reply, which comes off rather shitty, but I swear I'm actually a pretty okay person in real life.
