Friday Fashion: Ice Cream Date Outfit

"I want it to look like I'm afraid the airplane is going to crash into me."

 bag, shoes, belt, and plaid shirt: thrifted | jeans: Forever 21 |
shirt: Qwertee | necklace: Zombie Valley | hat: Wish

Last week I had a doctor appointment and afterward Jordan and I went on a date to a thrift store and then got ice cream at Molly Moon's.  I am so in love with their vegan coconut chunk ice cream!  We got a KitchenAid blender at the thrift store for just $7.50!  Hello smoothies :)  And I got a cardigan and another hoodie because the clothing was all 50% off.  It was a nice way to spend such a sunny day.

Friday Fashion: What to Wear to Target

We went to Target and Ross earlier this week because we needed some things and actually have money to spend on things now that we share a room.  The bus took forever to get to the stop so we entertained ourselves by taking selfies and outfit photos while we waited.

This is what happens when I suggest that we take a picture with only half of our faces in the photo.

so fashion-y

Balancing weirdly is one of my go-to poses.

bag and top: thrifted | boots and flannel: Valley of Roses Boutique |
jeans and hair bow: Forever 21 | necklace: Honeybee Alley

Jordan and I bought a total of 5 vintage flannel shirts from Valley of Roses Boutique for under $100 total.  This is one of those shirts.  The one Jordan is wearing in the first picture is another one.  We share them because they fit both of us, which is really cool.  My old jeans have been wearing out lately and two pairs have zippers that will not stay up so I bought some new jeans.  Forever 21 is the only company I can buy jeans from online and know that they'll fit so I went there first.  I found these ones and two other pairs for under $8 each!  And I bought this cute hair bow too because it was just 99 cents and I couldn't resist.

Book Wish List

If you're anything like me you shouldn't go in a book store unless it's a used book store, and even then only sometimes.  Well I went in a bookstore and then I drooled all over the books (not literally though because gross).  Here are three that it took all of my willpower not to buy.  Okay, so to be honest I probably would have bought at least one if I had money besides my rent money.

I never really read non-fiction before because I thought it was boring, kind of like how I used to not watch documentaries.  I found out that non-fiction can be super interesting when it's about topics I find interesting.  Seems like a no-brainer but it's a pretty recent revelation for me.  I especially enjoy reading biographies about mental illness, medical history/quackery, and curiosities.

If you want to catch up on what I've been reading lately and see my never-ending always-expanding wishlist, follow me on Goodreads!

Do you have any good non-fiction recommendations for me?  I'll add them to my list!

Where to Shop in Seattle: Monster Art and Clothing

I love monsters, art, and clothing, so when I heard the name of this shop I knew I had to go there.  I went after I got off work on the same day that I learned of its existence.  And I was in love.  It was all I could do not to buy one of just about everything in the store!

the sidewalk outside the shop is so pretty!

Justin Hillgrove is my absolute favorite artist!  I love his Imps and Monsters art and I picked up the first issue of his Implands comic book at the store.
These skirts are so good!  I ended up coming back and buying the Marvel superheroes one.
This store is great and I keep wanting to buy more things!  They carry art, clothing, gifts, and accessories from many different local artists.  And there's plenty of nerdy monstrous goodness everywhere you look.
