JennifHsieh is a space for my rambling thoughts and snaps of my everyday style. I'm based in Astoria, Queens and I share a home with my two derpy cats and my equally derpy fiancé.

This past Saturday, I made Jeremy drive me to the DMV (which, like most DMV trips, was unsuccessful). But when I got out of the car, I shut the car door on my pinky and a million tears automatically came streaming down my face. I literally could not stop sobbing for a good five minutes as that little sucker experienced pain its never experienced before. Sure, I've slammed doors on my fingers before, but never has the door fully closed and I'm just grateful my finger stayed intact in comparison to the horror stories I've heard.

But why am I telling you guys this? Because this is my blog and I can say what I want. No, but seriously, I'm telling you guys because the tip of my pinky is entirely black and blue and you can see it in the third picture above. That's not nail polish, my friends. That's a massive bruise on a swollen pinky. Luckily, the constant pain that took over my pinky over the weekend has diminished and the pain only returns when I put any pressure on it. Never have I realized how much of a purpose that little guy actually serves. Pinky, you mean the world to me. 


  1. oh man, i'm practically in pain just from hearing that. i'm surprised you didnt rush off to urgent care or something.Ouch! On another note, great fall hues here.

  2. Oh, you can see it but I am wincing in sympathy and hope that it is feeling at least a little bit better. Ouch!

    Also, I adore this outfit. The red is lovely but my favorite is the dots layer you can just barely see.

  4. I'm surprised you didn't go to the emergency room. i had a friend who had the same thing happen to his thumb and we had to rush him to the hospital because he was feeling sickly-feverish all over his body. hope it gets well soon!
