my enemies are all too familiar

in 2001 i had a brief obsession with uh..yellow ribbons? like..that you get for horse jumping? yellow = 3rd place, that was the most hilaretarded and amusing. anyways, i used to wear them on jackets and bags and stuff, like a lunatic.

this morning i had an overwhelming urge to wear one on my dress.


dunno who i was today. F21 shirtdress and fauxleather AA leggings- ROLLED UP and marc bonkers penny loafers.
unclear, it felt interesting though.

once i got to work i had to run it by someone i trust:

beep boop boop boop [numbers being dialed]

alex (at his desk on the other side of the floor): ga?
me: gaaaaaagaa. GAGA. um...a rolled up legging?
alex: noticed, love it. dope.
me: gaaa.

aaaanddd SCENE.

full disclosure, in the end i went with a SPANGLE JANGLE from h&m that i made superlong with extra chain. blue ribbon stayed home, too bad so sad.

it was a tough decision, but i am already the weird girl at the office and some days i can't take all the wtf looks.
know what ahm sayin?

happy friday, homeslices.

I freaking love this! Ribbons, yes! I think my Aunt has a shitload of equestrian ribbons in her barn. I might have to hit that up with a little thievery if ya know what I mean?
