i think this is the type of dress i would like to wear to my university graduation (i know, i know. it’s many moons away, but when you spend as much time looking at dresses on the internet as i do, it’s nice to at least pretend you have a purpose.) i want something really fun, colourful and festive. something that i can wear again—unlike my high school graduation dress. also, i want something weather-appropriate, as the ceremony will be held in february. this is a miu miu dress from yoox. i can see wearing it with a great necklace or bracelet and unique shoes. what do you think? i am so curious: if you went to university, what did you wear to your graduation?

this summer, i decided to create an inspiration board. i used some photographs that i took before the world went digital (i miss the anticipation of waiting for my film to be processed), photobooth pictures, cards, etc. i included some cutouts from mary-kate olsen’s harpers bazaar shoot a few years ago. i also really fell in love with lady gaga’s vanity fair shoot. i like her as much as the next girl.. maybe a little more.. but i couldn’t narrow it down and now i have four photos of her on my board. it looks like i’m a rabid fan! i have to say, i really like the lavender hair. i have chosen to post these two (love the mcqueen gown in the first picture) instead of spamming you with nudie pics at work/school/wherever you are. if you are thinking of making an inspiration board, i highly recommend it.
