ONE SHORT LONG DAY. Yesterday (9/6) felt like a good day to wear a satin kimono top with my new H&M Pants Collection slim fit (super skinnayy) forest green jeans. I got a lot of stares around campus and a few "Are you a leprechaun today?"s but it was worth the Wizard of Oz inspiration. Inconvenient truth about these jeans: no pockets! The side zip is nice to prevent unsightly crotch bunching. It has a hotpants kind of feel, a bit of high-waist going on. The kimono top had a weird stain in it, but that just means I got it for only $7 at Pitaya :) Love that the back is really long - gives it an elegant feel.

I really want a pair of those dorky green Wizard of Oz sunglasses they had in the movie to go with this. It was my favourite movie in kindergarten for sure. I remember playing Glinda over and over again for the class play despite not being able to speak English. Inspiration: Dorothy outfit, Tin man, maybe others! First, do lots and lots of homework. Notes: It's getting chillier yay! Need a reliable spot for 5 minute shoots in the morning. Lighting is very tricky at 9:30 AM.

Rest in peace, Dean McLeod. You will be cherished and missed.

You look so pretty in the 1st photo Angie! I love that smile of yours ^_^ I love the green top on you - bright colors definitely are the most flattering on you. I don't like pants without pockets either - they're very inconvenient if you want to stash away snacks haha :P
