Post 201! A few things I love right now.
Miike Snow - a fantastic electropop group from Sweden that produces tracks that manage to evoke big city lights and big city alienation, frozen lakes and stretches of snow, and smoky little bars, simultaneously. Probably my favorite tracks on their eponymous first album: Sylvia, for starting out with a simple piano and heading off into an orbit of synthesized otherworldly gorgeousness; and Animal, for maintaining a perfect balance between its shouty exuberance and laid-back tempo. Plus, c'mon, who doesn't love a jackalope?
These little flowers I've been seeing everywhere. When I leave for school in the morning they're folded up and look a little like ballet slippers. They also happen to be just about my favorite color ever.
This is the first time that I've ever noticed them open. Anyone know what they are?
Feeling better. I also really like feeling better. Still wearing the mask, though, which has produced a surprising number of kind words and "feel betters" in the last two days.
This dress, from goulash on Etsy. Serious classy cute happening here.
Antique rose petal wrap bow belt. I've been crushing on this and her obi belts in pretty much every color for about two years now. From elizabethkelly on Etsy.
I haven't knit in about four days, between being sick and being busy with schoolwork. Must make effort to remedy! Must not blog instead of getting important things done! Must not read style blogs in procrastination of homework! Must be a good student! Oh world, why don't you have more hours in the day?
