you'll never guess where i found this dress and in other news Dick is a misleading title for a movie

I'm in love with my new dress! AND YOU WILL NEVER GUESS WHERE I GOT IT. Yeah that's right the clearance rack at JCPenny. I know, I know, I'm still in shock, too. This is going to be a quick post, because I'm almost done with the new season of Arrested Development and then I need to catch some Z's. On the bright side I have about a week left of school and then SUMMER. The only downfall about the next week is finals, because I can't exempt any since I've missed too many days. I'm not too worried about finals, but I have really bad testing anxiety...The two finals I'm really worried about are Algebra II and Physics (mainly because I don't remember anything I've learned). So wish me luck! I've made a recent discovery: I use "oh" a lot whenever I'm speaking or typing and I'm going to try and cut back on it. Oh! (strike one) My theatre company and I are most likely going to perform A Midsummer's Night Dream for our Christmas show next year and I AM PUMPED. Lastly, one of my friends' grandmother cleaned out her closet and gave me a pile of vintage clothing!!! Holla~

 the other night I sat down to watch the film, Dick, and it's probably one of the best movies ever! It's about these 15 year old girls who end up being Richard Nixon's dog walkers, because the administration thinks they know about the Watergate scandals. If you ever have the chance to see it, I highly recommend it!
 I don't know the maker of these shoes or where to find them but i need them

i don't want to be afraid i want to take you on

an outtake of the photos I took in Austin. The rest will be on the Pulp Zine by the end of the month, because I'm a part of the staff now!!! Below are random photos from the past week and a half or just inspiration. I've been swamped with school work and new episodes of Arrested Development (GOD BLESS NETFLIX). I have finals the next two weeks and then I WILL BE FREE (until late August). There will be more blog posts soon have no fear!

the mad mod shop is open!

As I type I'm wiping tears from my eyes, because I'm just so happy (more like exhausted). I finally have my own physical real life shop! AHHHHH! It's actually a booth, but it's so large it's my own mini store. My dad, a few friends, and I have been busting our butts on this thing and now it's something we can be proud of. The entire booth isn't open yet, but so far I have the large room and the dressing room done! The first picture below is what the booth looked like before we did anything to it. It was basically falling apart, smelly, with no electricity AND NOW LOOK AT IT! The location is in Downtown Conroe (Texas of course) on the corner of Simonton and N. Thompson at Conroe Central Market (which, as a whole antique mall, basically the best place in the world. It's turning into my home away from home). So if you're ever in town please stop by! And some days I'll be working at the antique mall which is even more awesome.

P.S. I'm going to Austin for three days tomorrow with my theatre company! and of course there will be blood- I MEAN PICTURES!

 Happy Mother's Day everyone! I spent the day with my mom (whoa shocker) and we went to see the Great Gatsby (WHICH WAS PERFECT- leo 5ever) and then got Japanese food. So I'd say a day well spent. I decided to put this quick outfit post today, because the weather is freaking perfect outside, and I don't know what was up with the sun but it was just amazing and magical and yeah. The pictures explain what I mean. On another note my antique mall is slowly but surely getting complete! My dad and I spent all day yesterday painting the walls and shelves and are really close to getting done. (I've been putting updates on my twitter) Originally the booth was supposed to open on the 15th, but we've had some setbacks so it's now opening May 19th! I can't wait to be done and post pictures. Well, that's it for today~
P.S. I'm going to be in Austin in two weeks!!!
