Just got this adorable vintage skirt from poetryforjane, and I'm even more in love with it in real life than in the photos (didn't think that could happen).
Also, I found these shoes in my mom's closet. Love love love.
So I've been reading Lullabies for Little Criminals like a maniac these past few days because the author, Heather O'Neill, was invited to our english class (yay for living in the place the book takes place in!). Unfortunately I didn't finish in time for her visit (had only like 20 pages left lol.. so sad), but it was okay anyway, depsite one of my classmates giving away a critical part at the end which I will not mention for those who are reading/plan on reading it. She was so awesome and funny. It was funny because I found her really relatable (considering I plan on taking up writing as a profession some day.. on the side maybe..), and then my friend tells me today that the author reminded her of me. Nice! Us street-kids-with-messed-up-past-lovers gotta stick together :'D
She signed my book too! It was funny because she had an Aileen in the novel at one point towards the end of the book and I squeed, but then I still had to spell out my name for her when she asked.
