Since I haven't posted here in quite a while, here's a redo of my initial post, Launchpad McQuack, with what I'm currently into. Most of it's the same, but I think I can now give a more accurate visual representation. Check it out under the cut!

back to school

back to school

back to school by style-scum featuring white cotton tops

This one is a back to school look that features a grungy mix-match sort of style that I'm really fond of at the moment. Subtly mixing patterns is always fun! Hopefully I'll get a picture of my actual back to school outfit tomorrow morning before I leave.

Untitled #8

Untitled #8 by style-scum featuring a flower crown headband

Today's post features a set I just posted over on Polyvore! This one is an outfit (plus some filler!) that I put together that I think embodies this, like, 70s or 80s nostalgia from an adolescent perspective that grew up in the 90s. It's a bit of a hard feeling to really describe, but I think what I just said is about as close as we're gonna get. 

I really like the look of having something monochromatic with little pops of color here and there, so this is like that gone wild. I also really love the look of varsity jackets, they make me think of 90s teen movies which is why I threw it in there. I also really like platform sneakers and I've always wanted a pair, so they ended up in there simply because I like them. Also, the bracelet reminds me of one my friend had strung together for me when the two of us were having an "art day" a few months ago. I brought over a jar full of beads, some paint & brushes, an instant camera and some other supplies in a bag, and she decided she wanted to make me a bracelet and necklace set out of the beads. It was probably the cutest thing anyone has ever done for me, but I digress. The bracelet reminded me of that, which brought out nostalgic and sort of bohemian vibes for me so that's how that ended up in there.

There still is strength inside my bones, but they're thin like saplings and snap like they've grown old

Just a little black/grey polyvore set because I'm not feeling too great this morning. I was listening to the song Daisy Garden by the Provincial Archives. I'm really loving that big black hat I used here, I need to pick up something like that some time soon!

I am not Tavi Gevinson

But I sure as hell wish that I was!

Tavi is about the same age as me (just a year older, I do believe), but about 600 times more stylish.

This is the bow-hat that you may recognize her for - it made a bit of a stir when she first wore it! This picture is one of the first to pop up when you google her name. 
Here she is at about 11 or 12, probably better-dressed than I ever have been in my lifetime and ever will be in the years to come (sigh):

And I can't believe I'm saying this (I think it's a sign!), but, I'm sorry the picture above is small, if I make it any bigger it'll go all pixel-y.

(I was reading Tavi's old blog posts from when she first started writing the style rookie, before Rookie was a thing, and she wasn't very tech savvy at the time, so all of her pictures were tiny and if she made them any bigger they would go fuzzy, and she stated that the first few times she posted pictures. I sincerely believe that this is a sign from the fashion gods that I am going to succeed. Yes.) 

Anyway, so here she is in more recent years. I mean, just look at her! She's gorgeous, and so fashionable, and I adore her style.

Finally, here she is, with fucking LORDE FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE

Jesus christ.

Launchpad McQuack

So here it is, the ever-dreaded "first post," probably the worst part of starting any blog.

Well, I shouldn't say worst. But I could certainly list off plenty of things that would be more enjoyable than this.

My mission statement as a style/fashion blogger is to provide my readers with style inspiration through both my own style and the style of others, as well as just every day life (photography and what not.) I think this would be as good of a time as any to try and describe my style, but since I can't exactly do that with words, here's an array of pictures and polyvore collages that basically sum things up, under the jump.
