I'm an art student at San Diego State University. For the most part I'm all about the art. But fashion is springing up on me like wildflowers! I've become obsessed lately.

Embracing Ugliness

It's been a while, a long while, since I last posted anything on my blog. Life's been hard but I'm not gonna get into that. In the months between March and July I finished my first year of college, moved all my crap from my dorm back to my little house in Cal City and then come back to San Diego to take summer classes with lots of stuff in between. Now all that's over and I need to find a job BAD. I haven't taken any pictures of outfits because, well quite frankly, I haven't worn anything worth taking a picture of. Well I might have but was too lazy to do so. And what I've realized is that in the summer I don't dress up nearly as much because it's so damn hot. Even though summer is my all time favorite season I've come to realize that I much prefer winter or any other colder weather soley for the fact that I can layer and wear much more clothing then. I'm the kind of person who likes to cover my body because it's not so pretty uncovered, so when summer comes around and I'm walking around flaunting off my not-so goodies in crappy old jeans with holes the side of small children in them I tend to get un-encouraged to do a fashion blog. Not to mention I brought the bare minimum back with me to my brother's (where I'm now staying til I can get a job and save enough money to get an apartment with my bestie. wish me luck!). But because I haven't posted anything in a while doesn't mean I haven't been keeping up with other lovely fashionable blogs, as well as some non-fashion blogs that I love. Today I stumbled upon a website called www.hel-looks.com and I've seriously been looking through all the pictures of, I THINK, Swedish street style. And I've got to admit, I'm really liking their strong love of everything ugly. These everyday people are so passionate about what they're wearing, no matter how ugly any average person would think it was, that it somehow becomes beautiful. I'm really enjoying it and they're so inspired! I just love it! I wish American people were so open minded and passionate about embracing ugliness like these people are. Gosh we're so stuffy! They make me want to go there. Get away from drab ol' American antics.

This is one of my favorite street style outfits that I've looked at so far. I probably like it because 1.) it has leopard print and 2.) it's something I'd probably wear.

You see why I'd prefer winter right now? Look at how much more versatile clothes are when it's colder out:D
Another thing I really like about this site is that it isn't exclusive to stick thin model-esuqe looking people. There's some fat chicks in there! Hells yes!! And they ROCK their personal style. I can't get enough of it.

Anyway, I apologize for the hiatus and as soon as my life settles itself out I promise I'll update more often. In the meantime go check out wwww.hel-looks.com. Ravage that shit!!

Love the mix those people are wearing. Very eclectic.
P.S. Ironically you asked what nail polish I was wearing in a post where I said it...the bright blue Sephora, but I usually mix my own.
