I just had this crazy LookBook (and some My Modern Metropolis) binge...I probably saved like around twenty photos of styles I'm drooling over. But my absolute FAVORITE was this:

I'm not a huge fan of the random 90's-floral-print trend that seems to be everywhere right now, but still. I want to wearrrr it. I love the light,springy dress and pearls with the dark tights and dramatic and contrasting. LOVE IT.
I even know where to find like 80% of it from (or at least stuff that looks similar)...sigh.
I am such a seven year old, dress-up-obsessed little girl.

PS: here are some others that caught my eye:

what I did today....

she sort of creeps me out when I'm sitting on my bed, and she is on the easel staring back at me...
but it is a start. First portrait I've attempted in about 6 whole months...!

already looking at her on the computer monitor, I can spot about six billion things that are wrong/different and that I am itching to fix...but I think that should have been done in the pre-coloring stage so damnit. oh well, c'est la vie.


It's kind of odd lately because it hasn't fully, recognizably felt like summer yet. Even though I've been out of school for over a week, the whole "summer stoke" hasn't hit me. I've continued my normal routine that I established, which was some internet browsing, collaging/misc art, cleaning, chilling with friends, etc. This was all stuff I could have done while in school. Maybe that's the reason summer hasn't hit me...because I haven't had one of those stereotypically "summery" outings I usually have (day trips to the beach, walking to 7-11, bonfires, etc). So I'm thinking to myself now: "gen, you need to step up to your freedom and UTILIZE it, yo."

So far, so not-so-good.
I feel like my summer is being wasted away (but not really, because I've still had my share of fuuuun) but seriously, I need MOOORE.
I wish either I had a good supply of money or plane tickets were free so I could travel somewhere....I've got the travel bug as they say on the Travel Channel...Australia sounds lovely right now, no?

I just imported some new (to me, anyway) Sigur Ros to my beloved iTunes library,
and now I'm deciding which songs go best with which of my many playlists....and then I shall perhaps listen to said playlists outside while creating something. What I'll create, I have no idea. Maybe I'll just draw. I dunno. Any suggestions?

Oh, I also (like the dork I am) uploading some art to Facebook. Why? I have no clue. But it's there, oookay? :)
