Ruby red vintage

5/15/11



vintage leather vest, Forever 21 lace vest, vintage floral dress, vintage leather purse, UO watch, Kanna suede wedges

You know when you're really exhausted but you force yourself to stay up to finish some assignments and then you just reach that point of no return - godforsaken insomnia? I'm at that point. Not sure why blogging seems to be the most viable thing to do at this hour because I really cannot form coherent sentences when I'm running on five hours of sleep on any day... but uh, here's my attempt at a post. My apologies if I make no sense.

Weekend was filled with loud music and food! The outfit pictured above is what I wore to the Sun God festival in San Diego - it was great, and Jimmy Eat World even better than great :). Watching them live, after years of yearning to catch them perform just one song, was surreal. They were my favorite band in middle school and seriously brought me through my years of teenage angst/puppy love heart break haha! Jimmy Eat World was amazing, to say the least. Nostalgic goodness. My music-infused weekend ended yesterday with a 7-hour concert at Wango Tango in downtown LA. I thought I had quit Wango Tango for good two years ago but when my sister told me she won front-row (pretty much) tickets to the show, I couldn't resist. Definitely a great experience getting to be SO close but I'm not sure if I can handle a bajillion girls screaming their hearts out for new Bieber lookalikes (Cody Simpson?) anymore.

It will be yet another busy week but I'm hoping to get my blog shop finalized and ready to go by the end of this week. Be on the look out! x

Insomnia is the WORST. And it always seems to strike at the most inopportune times! Like when papers are due!

I can't believe you saw Jimmy Eat World! They were one of my favourite bands in highschool too! I went to see them so many times around when Bleed American first came out and they were still playing small venues. So many amazing memories of those shows! I would love to see them again! So jealous!

Love that dress too BTW!

Your weekend sounded like so much fun! what I wouldn't give to have a music filled weekend with concert faves that bring back middle-school "good" memories! I love the nostalgic feelings you get from certain smells, music, and places. Even though my childhood wasn't the bestest, there are definitely times I wouldn't mind re-living. You know, like the best ever kiss behind the house at midnight when I snuck out for the first time...yeah those kind of good memories haha

I adore your dress... that's such a perfect skirt length - demure but ladylike.. and I totally understand what you mean about blogging being one of those things you can do in the middle of the night..

Also, this is random but I also saw Jimmy Eat World live in Australia last year! They were tight... glad you enjoyed!
