REALITY BITES.

I picked up this mid-nineties The Limited dress at a thrift store the other day because A) It was $5 B) fit me like a glove and C) it totally reminded me of my favorite Gen-X movie Reality Bites. . . Paired with some black combat boots and a jean jacket i'm a total shoe-in for Lelaina. . .
I'm trying to decide if the full length is working for me. . . That's a helluva lotta polka dots for just one girl. Maybe if i brought it up to the knee I could handle it a bit better. Then i could take the extra scrap and make a summer-weight scarf or something. Waste not, want not. . . or whatever the saying is.
Speaking of totally awful highlight grow-outs. . . I don't think i fully realized how bad mine was until seeing these photos. I'm really trying to get my hair to the length i want before i do any crazy dye jobs...but seeing these is kinda painful. I'm not exactly embodying the popular ombré hair trend with this look.

p.s. gonna try and be better about doing "outfit posts"

You look beautiful.

May I ruin Reality Bites for you, a little bit? I slept with the man who produced it, and he was upset when I asked for oral sex. Hahahahahaha! It's true! xo

FANTASTIC DIY on that jacket...or isn't it?! anyway really suits you :) and that dress is so Winona 90's perfection! a great look for you!

As for the rug...it's new and i got it on eBay so i think it's still too early for it too loose its fluffiness but i have to say i'm soo strict with it lol! i vacuum it at least once a week :) and it's as soft as it is fluffy which makes me so happy...despite how high maintenance it is lol.

i think the length looks good, not too overpowering.

How cute was Ethan Hawke in these days...fresh faced and lovable.

I like your hair and think it is quite sweet on you, color, length, everything.

Have a great day xo

so good, so good, so good. Personally, I know I wouldn't wear it very much if it was full length, so if I were you I would take it up to the knee for sure. But to each their own :)

Hiii everyone, check out and comment on KASH :)

you look like winona, except not in that last picture, where she looks like something horrible is happening on the inside

Polka dots are so fantastic. I actually am wearing polka dots on my most recent post as well. What a great find!
