an emotional girl recommends red outfits

Hi internet void!

In December a bunch of the emotions I’d been gleefully and stoically suppressing started to demand I stop ignoring them! LOL was truly the most wonderful time of the year.  In the year 2019 I went through a really painful break up the most painful and only one I’ve ever had.  I am still processing it and working through the trauma and just intensity of it all.  We were living together at the time and then had to go through a horrible fire, friends staying at our house to visit and of course, both of our individual resentments and mental issues clashing and it was pure stress and suffering.  December was mourning and joy cause it was the first month I realized that everything ends and that was a pain and a relief for me.

I always look forward to the Christmas season though cause even if I’m truly going through it all the music and people tipping well and decorations cheer me up and keep me engaged and excited for every day of the year.  Last December I was going through a red phase and wore 3 red outfits that I really loved.  I was feeling really into red as it seemed to express my year and how I felt about it.  I was in red hot love and everything felt very intense. Here they are:

  1. I wore this dress to go see the Rockefeller Tree with all my friends. We put some baileys in our coffee and then danced in some midtown overpriced bar after and demanded they play bachata.  We got one song of it.   This dress is light and breathable.  I love that it comes with a belt because hourglass girls like me love to cinch our waists any time we get the chance.2. I wore this dress to see the neighborhood tree lighting with my best friend.  I made really delicious buttered apple cider and brought it there.  We got tons of nasty looks from insecure couples and from rude parents cause we didn’t have kids with us and we were taking flash photos of our beautiful selves 🙂  This was my first day wearing this dress and the rotweiler puppy I take care of decided to be a total dick and bit the side.  She made a 4 inch hole which I “fixed” with tape and a stapler cause I didn’t have time to go home and change after work and also I love the fit.  The dog still hasn’t apologized and I am still procrastinating sewing it.
  2. 3. This is probably my favorite look.  I went to look in the Adika pop up in NYC because I have a pair of biking shorts I love from them.  Most of the stuff was ordinary and too trendy for me but I instantly fell in love with this and had to have it as soon as I tried it on. I wore it to my dad’s holiday party and crowned myself in the top 5 best dressed. You can also wear it a bunch of sluttier ways but didn’t want to do that at my dads work party lol.

very late oscars best dressed

These are my Oscars best dressed (in no particular order cause making decisions are hard and it is 1:41 AM).  The best part of the Oscars to me is the fashion and thinking of all the people it took to make that one person look that good.  The Oscar’s are sometimes inspiring and sometimes sickening cause I can’t stop thinking about all the people who have so so much less than these people (including my lovely self who is sipping her cup of noodles as she rights this).  But anyways here are some very beautiful people in very beautiful dresses. And I hope we all get raises this week!

Amandla Stenberg

I love a 20’s look and she looks like such a goddess.

I love it cause it’s elegant and fun and dramatic all at the same time.  Also, I really appreciate how minimal they kept the hair and makeup.

I think this is a really pretty color in her and I love how elegant and sexy this dress is.  I’m really obsessed with it and how it looks like she’s wearing a glamorous scarf but she doesn’t actually do have to deal with wearing it and positioning it right.  Perfection.

Ruffles were really big this Oscars.  I love how sexy this dress is and I love a good fit and flare, though I would have made it a different color.

I am so obsessed with this dress.  It is lavender and sparkly and those are two of my favorite things in this world. I want it.

This is one of my favorite colors and the jewelry on this dress is so intricated and delightful.  This is such a princess dress and I love.  I would have worn a different necklace though.

This is giving me bad ass Carmen Sandiago on a date vibes so obviously I’m a fan.

I love this dress. Again this was a big Oscars for ruffles.  Love the gold accenting and the strategic ruffling.
