A thousand different versions of yourself... ft. Lulus.com

I've been the biggest couch potato recently, with my eyes glued to the sports channel. I love the Olympics. Say what you will about it, but I love the spirit of the games. Also, the commercials become increasingly more tolerable with all the Olympic-related material. That's a huge plus. 

Anyway, if you want comfort, I highly recommend the following outfit. I probably could've fallen asleep in the below ensemble, and that's saying a lot considering that I cringe every time I see somebody lay in bed with their shoes in movies and that I hate wearing anything other than pj pants and a t-shirt when I sleep. Thank you LuLus. If I ever need to pass out in an outfit, I will know exactly what to wear. 

Studs and stuff

I've been getting a couple questions about my DIY studded denim jacket, so I thought I might do a quick post about it. All it cost was a denim jacket from Value Village ($14) and 150 spiked studs from etsy (which is actually more expensive than the jacket... but so worth it). These studs.

Okay, so here's the down-lo. All I did was use a sharpie and ruler to mark and space the studs an inch apart on the upper back of the jacket. With a paperclip (anything sharp, really), I poked through the denim and screwed in the studs using a 2 mm screwdriver. As for the shoulders, there really was no order or system to which I decided to place the studs. Just my judgement, or lack thereof. 


Also, the oh so lovely Lisa Dengler from Just Another Fashion Blog and Just Another Fashion Magazine has included me yet again in the street style section of her super freaking awesome interactive magazine exclusively for iPads. Yeah, I'm pretty excited about it too. Thanks Lisa!

Edge of Desire

I finally finished studding my denim jacket. Now it has two shoulders of studs, which I've already stabbed myself on it plenty. What can you do?

Anyway, I've been in love with the whole lingerie and sporty-chic look recently. Heck, I don't even pay attention to trends because it simply requires too much energy to do so,  so if it's sooo yesterday, I apologize. Back to topic, as you can tell, I just threw a mess of clothes until my outfit-making-radar started beeping like crazy. Alas, I present to you a mixture of clothes that should probably never be thrown together. Oh, and tgif.

Some Tumblration for Wednesday

My chair is so squeaky it's killing me right now. Every time I move it sounds like ten million cats are wailing. Why?! Why this torture?

Anyway, here are some Tumblr photos that I've been slurping inspiration from. They contain a mixture of cute animals (which I think is essential for a good day), interior design ideas, and fashionable people. Thank goodness for Tumblr. Fighting boredom day and night where Facebook fails to. 

PS: Romwe is having a pretty big outlet clearance. Check it out.



Instagram photos because I feel left out

Now that I have an iPhone, it is only expected that I have instagram and take photos of anything and everything that will look sweet with a filter. It is my duty to do so. So, I've assembled some photos as bloggers do to show you guys pretty photos of a very mundane life. If you feel like following my journey as a new and self-proclaimed iPhone lover, add me @ALYYYSSALAUU. Yeah, I know. There are an obnoxious amount of Y's and U's. 

Also, I'm trying to persuade my mom that our household is in need of another furry creature--preferably another one of Mulan. It's not taking so well.


oh, how whimsical

No matter how much I love my shoes, sometimes, there really is no need for them. Such will be the case when I become a hermit and move into the forest and develop hobbit-like feet. Just kidding. But really, there's nothing better than being able to walk outside shoe-less in lush grass. If there's a stick, then that just ruins everything.

Anyway, I hope everyone's been having a fine start to the weekend. Being as lazy as I am, I've left all my e-mails to accumulate over the past few days so now I have to sift through them and answer them. I wonder how many lotteries and/or cruises I've won in the past few days. People on the internet are always so kind.

Oh, and the word of the day is guffaw. I guffaw all the time. Except I hear it's more of a cackle than a guffaw. Le sigh.

Creeper jeepers, more studs, and some ombre too

I have finally emerged from my cave of darkness for another outfit post. I don't get anything done on the weekends. And honestly, it's pretty embarrassing how much I look forward to school now.

Anyway, I shan't write much in this post because I literally have nothing sweet to talk about. Except for my love of creepers. The shitty thing is that the ones I currently have are much too small for me. But my determination has resulted in cramped feet and squished toes. However, after stretching these babies with ice, hopefully my feet will no longer have to suffer.
