I've always admired Alex Prager's beautiful photographs. Here are a few of my favorites and the ~vibes~ I feel from them. You can see more of her work here.

Alex Prager photos from her website, Valley of the Dolls book, Valley of the Dolls screencaps, a moodboard I made this summer (complete with a bottle of Holy Water), Jawbreaker screencaps from here, here and here.

I'm going to try an outfit inspired by these vibes tomorrow. Three day weekend!!

Love, Caroline

P.S. I'm about to watch "The Clique." Alone. Why....

dreary friday

I wore this outfit last Friday, which was the last day of an exhausting week. I was really comfortable and warm, so I didn't mind the messiness of the outfit.

 Target sweater, thrifted skirt
Here's a close up of the skirt. There are little scenes on it, i.e. a woman pushing a baby carriage, a couple sitting at a cafe, people shopping etc.

Because I have a three-day weekend, expect some exciting posts! With actual words... It's 10am on Sunday morning and I'm still groggy.

Love, Caroline

valley of the....

Hi guys!

The next two weeks are super stressful for me in terms of schoolwork and all that. I'm looking forward to my Senior Class Trip (sledding, inflatable bouncy castles etc. for a weekend? Yes). The night before we leave, I'm going to try and pick up a disposable camera from Walgreens.

I made a quick little moodboard the other day. I was thinking pink/60s prints and vibes. Also a little bit of "old" Hollywood. I made a collage over the summer that was supposed to be a critique on old Hollywood and the drug culture of it. I wish I was more clever and original, but you'll have to forgive me this time!

Valley of the Dolls record and Life magazine from 1971 were both gifts, Valley of the Dolls book from Amazon (I believe?), thrifted skirt beneath it all, hair clips from dollar store, thrifted Barbie sweater set, Sweethearts from Valentine's Day last year!

Hope you're all having a wonderful start to your week!

Ever since school started up again, I've been sort of blue. I usually become quite introverted in the winter. It starts with the fact that the cold Chicago air is really bad for my extra-sensitive skin. So I spend a lot of time inside. I think I'm probably just a little bummed to be back at school again. I feel like the school year should be over, but I have 4-5 more months.

Here's a little compilation of my mood.

Lime Crime Lipstick in "No She Didn't"

 A picture my friend took of a 4th of July swim in Lake Michigan (I can't tell which one I am...)

Girl, Interrupted

Lana del Rey's "Bel Air"
So beautiful and eerie. The lyrics are heavenly



Hi all!
I'm not exactly new to the whole blog-o-sphere, but I took quite a break and now I'm starting fresh. It was too embarrassing to look at my blog from Freshman and Sophomore year, so it's been deleted...
I'm a senior in high school now, and I'm getting ready for the finale (June 13th!).
I probably like the things you like: hot chocolate, thrifting, reading, Ouija board-ing, records, and giraffes (maybe that's just me?)
Anyways, I hope you find something new or interesting on this blog/journal. Otherwise, thanks for stopping by!
