Flower Child

Dress, shoes, belt, necklaces, and earrings-vintage; tights-tj maxx; headband-target; bangles-forever 21
This has to be one of my favorite outfits that I have ever put together.  I got the dress and shoes for less than five dollars combined at Salvation Army's half off Wednesday.  Tragically though, my school just banned skirts made from tight materials like this because a bunch of girls wore them so that they looked super trashy and slutty.  Not sure if this dress would be banned, but something tells me I'd earn a lovely trip to the office if I wore it with those fishnet-esque leggings!  My freshman year, I got in trouble for wearing a blue-striped mini dress with hot pink leggings, and the principal said it was because "those hot pink leggings really accentuate your long legs, Ellen."  Creepy much?  But I hate it when people who wear something trashily ruin good fashion for the rest of us.

shirt, shorts, & flower necklace-forever 21; shoes-tj maxx; headband-target; heart & striped necklaces, earrings, & ring-vintage
These were all taken by Hope, from Pink Champagne, who actually also gave me the shorts I'm wearing in this.  We took some photos for each others blogs, then made some butterbeer (which is DELICIOUS by the way, it tastes like liquid butterscotch) and watched Pretty in Pink.  Definitely a fun day!  This is actually the first ever photoshoot that I've done that is based mainly on the fashion.  It amazes me how a tiny little alleyway with a few trees and a field off to the side and a Rite Aid in the background can be made to look like an enchanted and magical place.
This is also probably the last photoshoot I'll do before school starts this Monday.  I'm going to be a junior in high school, and I'm actually a bit more freaked out this year than even before my freshman year.  Oh well, after the first day is all over, I'll be more than halfway done with high school, and that's something I've been looking forward to since before I even started it!

Hello Darlings

 dress-tj maxx; sperry top siders; headband and all jewelery-vintage
Let's get to know each other, shall we?
I'm Ellen.  I'm 16 and basically am the stereotype of a girl who finds her small town in Pennsylvania that is surrounded by cornfields to be the most boring place on earth.  I thoroughly wish I wish British, can be somewhat cynical, consider myself disenchanted, and love all things sparkly, pearly, and lacy.  I'm the girl in the dress in these photos.
Oh, and did I mention I'm addicted to fashion?  Greatest accomplishment is not having worn sweatpants in two whole years this winter!
I have another blog on piczo, but that is mainly for rants about my life that you probably don't care about.  This one will be more fashion based.
(none of these photos were taken by me by the way-photography is NOT my strong point!)
