Just one look and I can hear a bell ring

I think people at school are starting to-gulp-like my outfits. CRAZY, right? Even some of my teachers do, and teachers are supposed to be boring old hags that listen to Mozart and like pinstripe suits and bring books about biology to pretend to read during school hours but once they're home they whip out the romance novels and get cracking. People who you least expect (preps?) are complimenting the least expected...of...things...to...uh...be complimented. It's not like I'm wearing something that is easy to understand and simple like skinnies and a big tee, it's like crazy CDG-inspired stuff that has like a billion different prints and fabrics and layers and dead cats. Well, not layers, that's an exaggeration. But everything else is true.

Wow. I'm an ungrateful goat.

So, this is motivating me to dress more CRAZY. CONFUSE these people like an SAT problem. Mess with their MINDS. CONFUSE THEM SO HARD THAT IT SCARS THEM FOR LIFE SO THEY'LL HAVE SCARY FLASHBACKS AT RANDOM WHEN THEY'RE OLDER. FLASHBACKS OF A ZEBRA WEARING A FLORAL DRESS RIDING A MOTORCYCLE IN OUTER SPACE WHILE SINGING A SONG FROM THE "LEONARD COHEN ESSENTIALS" ALBUM.

Sound like a plan? Good.

Outfit from a few days ago. This is TAO/Japanese street style-inspired.
I would've written on my face, but it looks mad stupid with my glasses on. Plus I've done that before, correct? I thrifted these shoes a while ago and they are the solution to my every outfit. See, I have small feet (YOU? OF ALL PEOPLE? NO WAY!) so it's hard finding good shoes. Naturally, I bought these as soon as my beady eyes spotted em: And you know how annoying ebay ads are. "Rollover to expand! You know you want to!"
The shoes are a little big and clunky and awkward looking (and Land's End...), but that's just the way I like it.
I have Belle here because she is my CDG/Tao buddy. We stalk Rei Kawakubo together, and actually recently made the addition of manslave Nigel Barker to our marriage. Not. Too. Shabby.
