[last post] See You On The Flip Side!

My new blog is UP AND RUNNING! Go check it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't you tell how excited I am? As they say, all good things never last, so I regretfully say au revoir to my readers here. That's right, this is my last post :(

But not to fear! The only thing to change is the domain name (you don't even have to pay me! cough cough Netflix) so expect all the fabulousness from this blog, except better. Yep, #senior status.

Haha, see you all there!

Peace and be wild,

[me] Discrepancy?

So in case you haven't already noticed, my blog name has gone through quite a few changes over the year and some change that I've had it. (For the slower readers among us, here's the quick version: my blog title is was "The Reason Is Camille..." but the URL is "No MJ Here". I've become acquainted to "TRIC" and I like that name, so I'd really prefer to stick to that. Essentially, that means that in the coming months, you won't see as much of me here, as I'll be working on my new blog. Just for you guys, I'll include the link of my new blog in my last post here. Change is good, and I'm excited!

Sleep well, clones.

[music] Crucial

Today is Prince's birthday. Actually (according to him), on this day in 1958. So here's to it! I'm gonna spend the rest of this day like I would any other day, discovering new music!

It's no cake, but it sure is sweet!

That wasn't corny. You just didn't understand it's depth :)

[fashion] The Blue Period

The title is more ironic than I would dare explain. I did plan this outfit, last night....but it seems to match so perfectly that it was probably my destiny. I have 5 days left of school, and as shown by the picture above, I'm basically losing my mind. Everything is so close, and yet so far away. Is it any wonder that it leaves a girl feeling blue?
Gray shirt by Nordstrom. Shorts by Topshop. Scarf by Target. Wedge Flip Flops by Colin Stuart for VS (out of frame).

I've got a secret, but for now I'm gonna keep it.

Have a fantastic weekend!

PS- Like my couture hunch? I've been practicing just for you :)

[fashion] You Got Me

Honestly, I have no words. Beyond the fact that Erykah Badu's hair is fabulous, LOOK AT HER FACE. No, really, look at it!!!! She inspires me. I wish I could carry these pictures around with me for the rest of my life. THIS IS STYLE!!!! THIS IS SOPHISTICATION!!!! THIS IS FASHION!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nothing left to be said.


[fashion] Slammin'!

^^That's what a girl called my outfit today. At least, that's what I heard in my head :)

So this description will be quick because it barely came from my head at all. This outfit was a fulfillment of a request to wear black with red accents, so here's what I came up with after half an hour of scouring my closet. I got a lot of compliments for it today, so here's to breaking the rules every once in a while!

Black dress by Forever 21. Red glasses from H&M. Lita Heels by Jeffery Campbell from Solestruck. Red belt from Momma.

Camille The Great

PS- 1. I have one more week of school left!!!!
2. I haven't followed my outfit plans for the past 2 days GASP.
3. I just might become an exercise freak in the next month
4. At night, I pray that I will never leave home without my chapstick.
5. And yes, I'm starving right now.

[fashion] Hale Yes!

Thank GOD I didn't trash this issue of 17 magazine like I'd been doing for the past few months (why don't I just unsubscribe? I don't know either!). Lucy Hale was on the cover, and it was just further proof for me that 17's mission is to make their cover girls look as grimy as possible to try to make self-conscious preteens  more comfortable with their bodies, and to try to dispel the myth that celebrities are always attractive. Blegh. See why I've lost interest? Well, after looking through Lucy's other pictures from the shoot, I will concede to my friend who has been maintaining for months that Lucy Hale is gorgeous. I just couldn't see it. Yesterday, I saw it. I'll include the pictures from the shoot that I liked, along with snappy comments about each. Snappy comments is what I do. Get used to it.

This is a good picture. Her skin looks luminous, but not ridiculously tan (pale people as a whole have succumbed to the false idea that they MUST be tan in the summer, and that during the winter, when their tans fade, they look like ghosts. Pish posh.), and the feather earring gives me fond memories of Prince circa 1987. Good deal, good deal. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE COVER. THE PICTURE AND SUBSEQUENT EDITING OF THE  ACTUAL COVER PICTURE IS A DISGRACE.

I love this shot. It's playful and youthful, but the 17 stylists/makeup artists didn't attempt to make her look like a 14-year old experimenting with fashion for the very first time in her life. Applause is due.

"When the elevator tries to break you down, go crazy." The lipstick actually compliments the shirt (which is more than I can say for the picture above this one, cough cough) and the styling is yet again understated. The fact that 17 had 2 great pictures of the person they were featuring is truly remarkable. Next time, will they shoot for 3? Let's not be unrealistic.

So it turns out that she's cute. And she has pretty hair. I finally admit it, happy now?

Don't get used to this sort of thing. I'm not wrong often.
