hang on every word

I haven't checked anything off my 30 Before 30 this week, but I'm working on stuff. for instance, I've started the vocabulary expansion by learning a new word: elegiac. it means to have a melancholy quality, or be wistfully mournful. isn't that a great phrase? wistfully mournful. honestly it sounds a lot nicer and more poetic than elegiac, which kind of reminds me of a yak sneezing, but hooray for synonyms!

dress- vintage // shoes- Modcloth // necklace- Lia Sophia // bag- fr. Marrakech market

this dress is one of those items that, no matter how I wear it, never looks the way I want it to. I trot around town, imagining myself as vintage-clad, easy-breezy hipster type. but then I look at myself in pictures and it doesn't strike me as very put-together, nor very easy-breezy. yet I keep wearing it, and I'm sure I will continue to wear it, because I do love a sartorial challenge. 

I will make you flattering, dammit!
