belated easter

mornin' sunshines!

first of all, thank you for listening to my little rant yesterday. no, i don't regret it. and yes, i still stand by what i said it felt GREAT to say actually, and it's awesome to know a lot of you feel the same. i hope it goes without saying, but i didn't AT ALL mean to slam anyone personally... just some general frustrations.

next week, maybe i'll do a "coffee talk" based on the ways that musicians suck (maybe...)

anyway, it's been soooo long since i did an outfit-related post (two weeks!!), so i thought i'd try and make this one extra-special for you. how do you feel about some hot pink, hot yellow, and turquoise action?

this was my easter outfit... so many awesome colors! i'd been pining over this dress at modcloth for like five months... but i can't really afford modcloth, even on sale. then one inexplicable day, the dress went down to $20, and became mine!! i've had it for a few months now, but this is the first time i've actually worn it.

this is a lady tie, made by the lovely flapper girl. i practically squealed when i received it... i. LOVE. it. scarves are always my go-to accessory, and i'm so glad to have this now to change it up with! the color i'm wearing is pastel floral.

one other thing...

(yes, it really does warrant that many exclamation points.)

i can't stress how many agonizing hours i spent doing the artwork. the whole time, having nightmares about the stupid little typos i'd inevitably spot... questionable packaging material quality (it was my first time using this printing company)... surely, i would accidentally send them a 72 dpi version, rather than a 300 dpi version, and the whole thing would go kablooey.

but no. they are perfect.

magically perfect.

unicorns, rainbows, and cupcakes **blogger** perfect, okay?

and in case you were wondering, you can totally preorder one on my super-cool bandcamp page.
