Party Wear

I went to a friend's birthday party last night in Beverly(my last night living in Beverly, actually!) and I wanted to wear something nice, but I didn't want to wear vintage. I go through that battle constantly. Especially at school, seeing as people still smoke in their apartments. That is one thing I'm happy has changed since the 40s/50s/60s/ is that people don't really smoke indoors too often.
So while collecting vintage I have been trying to find the best look for myself in reproduction type clothing. I've found a pair of jeans thats come up to my hips, so just shy of where my trousers hit, and they are a good classic blue. I also love me some striped tee shirts.
Good mens vintage reproduction is really hard to come by, especially for an affordable price. There's great companies like Ole' Woogies, Freddies of Pinewood and Tarantula Clothing but I can't afford any of their clothes. I can afford vintage over these companies though.

SO Im pretty much posting about nothing. I'm running on 3 hours of sleep on my moving day.

Packing up again.

I did hop back into the vintage swing of things. THis was my outfit today. some 40s mens trousers(not the ones I wanted to wear today but these will suffice I guess) and a non-vintage but still old sweater. most likely from the 70s/80s. I just threw on some plimisols for basic footwear. I need to Shave, pretty bad. haha But I figure I would show you guys(via crappy web cam photos since my camera already made the move Im working on) what I looked like while I've been at school. I was really into goth again hahaha. Below is my outfit I wore while I was packing up my stuff and dancing around with my roommate. A pentagram shirt cut into a tank top(gift from the roomie) and my red shorts from H&M that I cuff shorter. oh yeah, and 6 inch black patent leather platform heels. No big deal.

So I am working on Move number 4 since August.
One from old to new house in Palmer,
One to Revere,
One to Beverly,
Now this one back to Palmer.

I am in the process of packing up all of my dishes. Again. I hate that part of the move. I have so much stuff. I am exhausted just thinking about packing and unpacking all of this stuff. and then setting up a whole new room. But this one is a bit bigger which is nice. I need to make some drapes for it and I need a new bed spread. I want a chenille one, I just don't know what color. my drapes are going to be made out of that green atomic print fabric I posted about a few months ago.

Welp, I'm back-ish I think

I went to and left school. Hated it.
Beck and I don't really talk anymore. I really miss her, I don't think she cares.
Now Im moving back to Western Mass to get on my feet.
I know a lot of people are going to judge me for leaving but frankly I wasn't enjoying it to the point were I was just drinking to avoid dealing with life. Then I figured out I had to do something about it before things when too far.
So Im moving back home to work and figure life out. haha
I havent really worn any of my vintage clothes in months. I haven't done much vintage hunting but I have stumbled onto a few GREAT pieces(like the Heywood Wakefield twin bed frame I found.)

So I don't want to talk much about school, but if anyone wants to know anything you can leave questions in this posts comments.
