Alternate Universe; where are you?

Heya just got back from grocery shopping my mom and I saw Megan! Hi, Megan I know you're reading!!

Anyway another outfit, what? 
This morning I headed out with the family to eat some Chinese Dim Sum, I took some pictures for my next post because who doesn't want to see some yummy Dim Sum. I know, a lot of people, but man whatever. Since school's about to start I thought I'd take my maxi dress out for a spin seeing as it's not exactly orthodox parading down the school hallways dressed head to toe in a floral print that could have came out of my granny's closet. What makes this dress even more overwhelming is the sleeves! But oh how I love my dresses with sleeves, I think it adds a little quirkiness and modesty! Albeit I had to change afterwards because this maxi is obviously not appropriate for the current weather, I still had a good few hours in it.



I tried to do a little tumblr spin here, but obviously my dress was not cooperating.




This is how the dress would look hemmed, what do you guys think? I feel like the maxi may be a little too overwhelming, should I make this maxi into an over the knee dress instead?






Outfit Details:
Maxi Floral Dress - Flea Market, Vintage presumably
Shoes - Michelles! (Again)
Pearls - Granny's (Again)
That's pretty much it, I'm not wearing a lot at all! (Haha, perverted thought*) How immature.


 Just a Picture Board of what is Currently on my Mind:



|| How I'm ever going to improve my sleeping habits ||
|| Am I going to meet new personalities that I click with this year ||
|| Dreading the desk waiting for me at school ||
|| I wish we were more festive this X-mas ||
|| Why aren't my disco pants here yet, get your act together asos ||
|| Need to find a good foundation ||
|| When will I get Inspiration to write, draw and DIY again? ||
|| If only I had a money tree or a piggy bank made of real silver ||
|| How to be as productive and as efficient as I can before night falls ||
|| Why are my lashes so god damn short! ||
|| I want to travel ||

So today officially marks the end of my Christmas break, and thus begins the hellhole named 'school'. Why can't there be such a thing as all the free time in the world? Out goes leisure reading and movie marathons and breakfast! Let's not forget about breakfast, with school round the corner, popping it's head in my face, I won't have time to even eat what is claimed to be the most important meal of the day! I'm not prepared to face the classes, the excessive workload, all my IAs and exams, the teachers and not even my peers yet. But then again, if I had the choice, I don't think I'd ever be prepared. There's something so nostalgic about the end of a break. It marks the end of jovial bliss, the end of possibilities, the end of having so much time in the world you could do anything you've ever wanted! Not that I do anything during these breaks, ironically. Though if I had more time I definitely would. But right now, on the day before school starts, all I want to do is lie in my bed for the next week and watch one movie after another on end whilst sipping on my delicious cup of mint tea, and only have the company of my parents because who am I without them and belittle myself as much as possible. Sometimes it's kind of great to be a nobody, with no goals, with no friends, with no expectations to meet, with no care in the world, and thus with no strong feelings towards anybody and anything. I might as well be soulless, haha. Call me an introvert or whatever, but sometimes I revel in being alone. That's it, I love breaks because I can revel in being alone, not necessarily lonely, just blissfully alone. I'd love to fall off a building and land into an alternate universe with books and movies and all things beautiful where no one can find me, except my parents when they need to summon me home for dinner. That way I won't have to converse or socialize. I just sometimes feel socializing and keeping up an image can be as tiring as giving blood. Don't you guys think? 

Ciao

  2. That dress is gorgeous! It'd look cute long or short. And I totally understand what you mean about long school breaks, I have a few weeks left of mine. I agree that there's something amazing about having nothing to do. :D

  11. lovely post darling. i am really loving this outfit and urge you not to hem it - there are plenty of dresses you can find which would look like this dress if it were to be hemmed. i love the maxi quality to this dress and the grandma feel, but sometime grandma style is just perfect. i agree with you about breaks - i think tho for me during too long breaks i get annoyed and want to be busy and proactive again, but it is always the week before break ends that i wish it would continue on forever. earlier this week i was thinking - i am ready to go back to uni - but now tonight sitting here with my last free night, i am putting off the homework i need to do ;)

  19. Lovely dress. Vintage finds are always fun, I also like how it ties. I also feel you about being alone. I actually enjoy my own company, so i'm never sad if I have to do something alone or I can't hang out with friends. Have a great school year, I totally don't miss school. haha
