SCALLOPED & PIERCED. I finally manned up and got my cartilage piercing (7/9)! And no, I didn't go through with the DIY at-home disaster or Claire's shatter-prone guns - I went to a professional (Scotti) at Iron Age, a tattoo parlour. It was super quick and surprisingly painless and I love the results! Badass? Check. More unnatural holes in my body? Check.

It's funny that I wore soft pastels and my Threadsence/Lush mint scallop hem shorts to get a hardcore little steel hoop threaded through my cartilage. Contrast is for more than photo editing. I know a lot of you have been waiting to see these shorts styled - apologies for the wait and backlog of posts! It's really easy to throw them on with anything and go - pockets are nice and deep, the length is on the conservative end, but overall the fit is poor. The waist is too loose for an S and when I put anything heavy in the pockets, the shorts are dragged down. The butt area is unflattering, but maybe I need a little Booty Pop action too. They also wrinkle very easily, if you can't tell (Tencel). If you're still interested in these, check out my Scallop Shorts Shopping Guide to find this pair!

This was the day I hit the mall post-piercing and got my double-faced Urban Outfitters watch. It's just too unique of a quirky timepiece to pass and I must say it's been getting its wear! I've retired the pink panda watch from the Taipei zoo for now - that's how much I like this watch. Currently black face is set to San Diego time and white to STL (not that I can't +/- 2 hours in my head). Also, I went Skittles-happy at UO with the nail polish. The ear cuff/earring chain is something I've been seeking forever and I finally found one at Icing. The wrapping-leaf ear cuff I also picked up unfortunately is made for the right ear exactly where I got my piercing, so I'll be selling it in my blog sale soon. It's super pretty and gives off a boho/elvish vibe.

Things to address: Yay I am getting more patient with making easy collages in Photoshop. Apricot cheese from Trader Joe's - goes well with white wine and crackers, but actually not that great alone. Still, fruity cheese is pretty awesome. I threw on my Ann Taylor white blazer for a fancy schmancy secret bar party and changed into my white chunky low pumps for a "smart casual-ish" look. Housemates made yummy rice balls with furikake yummm. Okay, time to stop writing an unnaturally long post with an unnaturally large compilation of photos. Have a great week! This is my last before I start my senior year in college ... time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana.

Readers - how many piercings do you have?

I don't normally like unconventional piercings (the most adventurous I've ever been are second ear holes which have since closed up) but I really like how you've worn that with the chain - it actually looks feminine despite the initial idea of the piercing.

And love your feminine outfit too - fresh, cool and whimsical :)

Lots of love from Sydney,

I love the color and the cut of your shorts but too bad about the fit. My little girl had her ears pierced when she was 3 months old =) She cried for 5 mins and was happy after that.

I love the bow on the back, it's so cute!! And the pastel shades appeals to me :D

If I remember correctly I have about 4 ear piercings left but I think I pierced my ears about 8 times :P
