Know Who I Am

Shirt: Cozmic KillJoy | Shorts: DIY | Boots: Dr. Martens

The pants/shorts are still a work in progress. I have more patches and paint to add to the back. The outfit is quite simple but looks a bit more complicated, and that's what I like. The last photo is me showing off my big strange nose, loudly and proudly. A year ago, I would never be able to even look at such a photo of myself without either bursting into tears or wanting to break it or cut it completely off. A lot happens in a year. I am certainly not the woman I was then. I mean, I still have a long way to go before I am who I really want to be, but I am definitely happy with the direction I'm going and improvements I have made so far.
Anywhore... you can get the shirt I'm wearing at only ONE place.

On a slightly different note, I ordered my swimsuit for this summer already. #1 because I'm tired of falling in love with a suit and waiting until the weather actually gets warmer to find out that it's out of stock in my size. And #2 because I need something pretty to motivate my workout routine to get this body ready to rock it in May, when I head down to the Outer Banks again.

Make You Fall

Jacket: Target | Top: Thrifted | Pants: Rue 21 | Tank: Rue 21 | Boots: Vintage | Necklace: Handmade Gift

I am well aware it has been like 3 weeks since I've posted a look. I can honestly say I have had absolutely no time whatsoever to capture photos, resize them and post on here, lookbook and chictopia. I'm actually planning to spend one of my two days off [finally] entirely on putting on the outfits I've worn this past week or so and taking photos and just posting them once a day for awhile. We'll see if it actually happens or not haha
Anyway, I've been hooked on Marina and the Diamonds [who isn't] and I'm looking forward to snagging the upcoming BRMC album. Oh, and I spent a total of $40 on a hoodie, jeans, two tanks, a top and leggings Thursday. I'm fairly certain that grants me Bargain Huntress Level 100 status....not to brag or anything ;)

So what's up with you these days?

Back Down, Kid

Top: Forever21 | Shorts: H&M pants/DIY shorts | Jacket: Forever21/DIY | Earrings & Suspenders: Claire's | Boots: Dr. Martens

My boyfriend walked off a job site today because his mom's fiance [who is his boss] was talking all kinds of crap about me and after he was told to stop, he kept going. So instead of beating his face in like he said he wanted to, my boyfriend walked off, threw his gloves in the trash and kept walking. This dude doesn't know squat about me yet for some reason felt the need to agitate Dakoda about me being a b*th and a "blow mouth" whatever that is... Not sure where he got the information to make such judgements, but since he doesn't mean much at all to me, his opinions are invalid so they don't hurt me. But this outfit, I realise, is sort of my way of expressing my attitude towards the whole take what you want from it. I really don't give a d*mn.

Born to Fight and Fight

Top: Rue 21 | Pants: Hot Topic | Shoes: Dr. Martens | Vest: KillJoy Original | Wristband: Vintage | Choker: Hot Topic

not sure why everything looks dirty and grungy. I mean my pants are a bit old and faded, but my other stuff isn't really that grimy I swear xD must be my lense...hmm...
[and my phone is in my back that explains the oddly shaped bum lol]
Today consisted of a long, angry, tearful phone call, cooking, cleaning, laundry and finally a long walk with God. A lot of stupid stuff happens to us in life. But one thing I've learned is that even when humans hurt, lie, and disappoint us, my God doesn't change. He's the one solid rock I can stand on and know that He won't crumble and leave me helpless and alone. That's really all I have to say today :)

Oh, and the vest I'm wearing is a one of a kind and can be found here and only here:

Lack Thereof


Sweater: Cotton On | Leggings: Pac Sun | Shoes: Rue 21 | Hat: Forever 21 | Necklace: Handmade Gift

I am counting down the days until I can ride my bike, jump in the creek, drive with my t-tops off and run around outback barefoot.
