The Streets That Drove Me Crazy

I remember the first time I wore black nail polish. During my junior year of high school, my AP English Language teacher assigned a video project where we separated into groups and wrote screenplays. My group chose to focus in on the downfalls within stereotypes and I got to play the school goth. Going along with the stereotype, I bought a cheap bottle of black nail polish to look the part. I'm pretty sure my performance in the film was Oscar-worthy but that's just a whole other story. Back in 2007, black nail polish was not the coolest color choice in the world and I remember getting weird looks from everyone and secretly loving it. Now a days, you're chic and daring if you wear black nail polish so I like to think I was just ahead of the game and setting the trail ablaze.

It's the start of a new week and I'm already craving the weekend! I spent this past weekend in Philly with my favorite group of girls that I've known since middle school. The four of us haven't hung out together in over a year and every time we plan to meet up there is always that one person who can't make it. Finally, we succeeded in rounding up the whole gang for a night of rowdiness and forgotten memories. This upcoming weekend will be a repeat except for the change of city. This time around it'll be in New York City (my home base) and I couldn't be more excited! What do you guys have going on lately?


  1. FIRST COMMENT (who does that anyway?). You look super cute, seriously, and now I'm regretting my decision to not pick up the $2 Joe Fresh poppy red tights. DARN.

    I'm super excited to be eating at Momofuku IN NEW YORK in a week's time, and we'll be taking dorky photos on the street as well. Yay!

  8. cute look. And I totally agree with the black nails comment you made! It's funny how the conception of black on your nails has changed! =)

  9. The crotch shot after the picture of your collar is scandalous. And your stance in the nail polish pic has such sass. Finally, if the video of you as a goth is anything like your hair dryer video, I MUST see it
