birthday: revisited

i was caught off guard by the timer.

the tulle in this dress fulfills my wildest burlesque desires when i prance around in it. it's so fucking awesome.

 a few of my favorite things.

 a dainty ring.

 last week's gorgeous thing.

outfit:
nude/lace dress - a gift from friends, via rumors, $28  (they left the price tag on. lovable retards.)
vintage beaded necklace - a gift, via my mother
distressed leatheresque jacket - thrifted, $5!
diamante studded ring - rue 21, $8

gifts:
l'oreal lipstick in blazing sangria (714)
juju hearts (like swedish fish in heart form)
pier 1 peacock frame
thin silver ring
vintage beaded necklace

gorgeous thing:
bejeweled brooch from luxor vintage

Sorry for all the weird different tones in my pictures. I believe that 90% of a good photo is editing. i'm an odd child.
I would also like to not that in the process of this shoot, i lost the cap to my lipstick. Oops. And it is a true red; not magenta as in the first picture.

***

i over-exaggerated a week and a half ago. i was just quite mopey over my audition. but i did receive a call back and a dancing part. if you're familiar with Guys & Dolls, i am a Hot Box girl! woot.

***

On a completely separate note, i would like to apologize. I've been M.I.A. lately because of exams. They haven't been as bad as i thought there were going to be, and my hardest ones are over, but it's been a little stressful. I skipped all posts during the week this week, sorry, but i am going to try and resume them as of now.

(don't forget to enter the blog makeover giveaway; giveaway closes on Valentine's Day, sorry i never specified that before)

    I've just read your latest post and I agree with it, and found it hard to write something to you that sounded slightly different to what is already there.. so I have failed myself haha
    But you don't sound bitchy, just honest :)
