Thanks for capturing just a little piece of my life for that past year. I started this blog in hopes of becoming some sort of celebrity, and I finish it leaving behind a few memories and a little bit of myself. I hope you (readers) have enjoyed the ride and my quips while they've lasted. I've enjoyed the ride, but it's time to put thewardrobenottaken to bed.

So. I am lacking relevant, meaty, or otherwise interesting posts right now. I apologize. I had a quite terrible weekend. Two car breakdowns, on a road trip no less, a party filled with twenty crazy children? wild banchees? all under the age of seven. I'm just glad to be home. All this translates into a lack of outfit posts. Whoops. At least I scored this smiley face head wear. YIPEE!

Hey hey hey readers. I apologize for neglecting you. I've been working non-stop for the past month as a camp counselor. Between the crazy hours, CRAY-CRAY temperatures (105 degrees and no A/C... PHEW), I've had no time or motivation to blog. However, since I am now back in touch with civilization, I give you my latest blog post. Huzzah. That was it. Hold your applause. I promise something more creative and inspiring soon. In the mean time, in honor of "Midweek Music" I suggest you check out Foster the People if you haven't already. "Call it What You Want" is stuck in my head, but I'm not complaining. That tune is music to my ears.

Hey, hey, hey. I made a trip to the grocery store with my mom today. I even managed to find Pocky (Poe-key; a Japanese treat that tastes pretty much like chocolate covered pretzels... that aren't salty) and Ramune (Rah-moon-nay; a Japanese soda... tastes sort of like a fruity cousin of Sprite mixed with a splash of Sangria). Basically, I was a happy camper. I love trying out all the things in the International aisle. It's kind of like an adventure sans annoying TSA rules, baggage claims, and scenic views (unfortunately).
Speaking of adventures, I rediscovered this Hard Rock hat today. I forgot that I bought it for my dad as a souvenir from my People to People trip to Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji, a few years back. I think I will be "borrowing" this hat for a while.

(GAP Free Bird Hoodie, GAP sweater, Juliet and Company necklace, Madewell jeans, Vintage Salvatore Ferragamo riding boots)
I'm not a sweatshirt girl at all. I can't stress that enough. However, (my) rules are meant to be broken, for two reasons. One, I love this sweatshirt. It's cute, comfy, and a lovely shade of blue. Second of all, it's FREEZING here, and under sixty degrees. Not only is that unacceptable for the summa time, but it's just plain cold. Sweatshirt time!

(WalMart floral department flower, American Eagle tunic, Juliet & Company crochet necklace, woven bracelet from the Bahamas, Dillon Rogers leather stamp bracelet, Low Luv X Erin Wasson thunderbird cuff, Vintage ring, Chan Luu wrap bracelet, Swiss Army watch)
So, I've finally jumped on the Chan Luu train. I received this leather, coral, and rose gold bracelet as a birthday present. I have to admit that I was not a fan of Chan Luu products until I got this bracelet a couple of days ago. I won't buy something just because everyone else seems to have it. In fact I tend to dislike things if everyone is buying them, even if they are cute! I am happy with my new wrap bracelet though. It goes with everything. You can catch a few of the other members of my (pretty sizable) bracelet collection in these photos. I almost picked up another bracelet at the mall today, but I'm trying to save bookoo bucks for grad school, so....

I don't know how I called myself a Vampire Weekend fan without having heard "The Kids Don't Stand a Chance". There is even a sweet remix featuring Miike Snow. How can you go wrong with a Miike Snow and Vampire Weekend collaboration? Exactly. You can't.
In other news, it's my BIRFDAY (birthday if you desire the word to be spelled correctly...I can't decide which one to use. Maybe it's the English major in me?) So far so good as far as the birthday celebration goes. Hopefully I'm another year wiser along with the obligatory year older!
Here is a collage I made, a sort of birthday present to myself if you will. I'm planning to put it on my dorm room wall, but for now I need to find a place for it in my room.

I realize it's been a while since I've done a legitimate blog post. Here is a photo diary of sorts from the past few weeks of my summer vacation. I've been doing a lot of coloring in my Indie Rock Coloring Book. I love that thing (and coloring, which is so cathartic). The first picture is inspired by the singer Joseph Arthur. The second picture is a view from my bedroom window. I'm fortunate to have a lot of natural light. The bracelet in the third photograph is from my jaunt to the Bahamas, my tan feet can be seen in Bass sandals in photo number five. Picture number four features some enchiladas I made. YUM!
Typically, I don't watch the MTV Movie awards, why bother, the award will just go to Robert Pattison (or R. Patz... affectionately). Said affection does not come from me. BAH. Anyhoo, I watched a very awkward clip of the award ceremony yesterday, for "Best Male Performance" (Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake sure know how to keep things strange). Also, the opening sequence for "Best Male Performance" was even more awkward. I suppose MTV stopped pretending that young impressionable children, or people who value high standards ceased watching long ago (cough JERSREY SHORE cough). But I digress, there is a point to my MTV related rant. During the list of nominees for "Best Male Performance", I discovered a cool Australian Band, Empire of the Sun. If you like MGMT or think trippy psychedelic synth pop sounds like your cup of tea (or coffee... if you must), check them out. Look no further than below this rant.

A far out, lunar inspired collaboration between Jeremy Laing and Scott Treleaven for their Fall Collection. Consider me a fan!

Who knew CNN and streetstyle would mix so well? I didn't.
Baby pandas are hilarious. So are otters.
I love Marais.
Every Teardrop is A Waterfall is a neat addition to Coldplay's repertoire. I approve.
Another song I approve of? "The Look" by Metronomy.
This guy's cartoons never get old and are a breath of fresh air.
Shop Ban.do. Do it(but only if you like headbands as much as me).
Self explanatory. I really wish that show hadn't been canceled. BOO!
Hopefully your Onion horoscope isn't as bad as mine.

Hello readers. Hola appetites. I don't have an outfit photo for you today, but I do have a photo of something I whipped up in the kitchen... a fruit tart! You can find the recipe here. I was pretty sad to cut into the tart and ruin it, so I made my padre do the honors. Taste testing verdict? DELICIOUS. Phew (my hours in the kitchen weren't wasted)! Plus, it's puuuuuuurty (if I do say so myself).

This week's post is in honor of Foster the People's release of their first full length album Torches. I haven't listened to the entire album yet... but what I have heard has yet to disappoint me. Plus, today I learned that Foster the People can pull off a pretty sweet live show. Check them out at SXSW here.
