Four years ago my friend Katie suggested family camp to me, and the thing that got me there (because it certainly wasn’t the camping aspect) was Disco Bingo Night.
I love that my friend Alice and I were twins! We didn’t plan it.

I was so happy to meet Cynthia today! I’d heard about a student who looked and dressed like me; she’d had confusing interactions where someone would wave at her from far away and then look baffled when they got up close.
We were both at the Resource Fair for new transfer students. I loved that she had on the button I designed! And that furry fringy jacket!

I love: the fit of this dress, the exposed zipper, the giant spots.
I never shop at Bloomingdale’s because I figure it’s out of my price range, but the Ladies Room is really awesome. Somehow I found my way to a half-off-the-sale-price rack, and this was there, waiting for me.

Like a Mod Stewardess
And my purse reminds me of a travel bag. I love the navy accents on this dress, and wearing mostly cream or white always makes me feel really chic—look, I can keep myself clean all day!
I am so happy I got this bag! The navy/brown combo looks good with so many more things than I imagined.

Tess on Safari
When I found this dress at the Goodwill, it reminded me of Melanie Griffith’s character in Working Girl. But in these pictures it seemed much more chic, and made me think of YSL and his Safari collection.
