Even though it was really just the week before last, spring break already feels like forever ago. I can't help but want to go back, though, since the idea of warm weather and free time to relax seems too much like a distant memory. I regret not posting these pictures from that week right away because looking at them now just feels like they're taunting me. "Hey, remember when you could walk outside without tights and wear cutout oxfords, Elana?" "Wasn't that fun when you got to sleep in every day and do nothing but shop and eat good food?" Man, spring break Elana is kind of a bitch, isn't she? (I know I always try to not curse on here, but I'm writing this at 1 a.m. and I'm sleep deprived enough to think that the joke is worth it.)
I actually got this dress in Iowa a couple months ago for only $13, but never got any pictures in it the only other time I've worn it. I definitely wasn't going to get anything from Francesca's that trip, but I couldn't resist trying this one, and when the saleswoman told me it was on sale for that cheap, I had trouble passing it up. It's surprisingly really great quality, and the shape is flawless. Speaking of purchases I shouldn't have made in the past few months, but got peer pressured into, these oxfords were one of the only things I bought during spring break. They're Opening Ceremony, and I found them at Wasteland in L.A. for way cheaper than they should have been. I've always wanted something from Opening Ceremony, but a few hundred bucks for shoes? Not happening. $30 for a used pair in perfect condition is much more my language.
I can't say that there's much interesting happening in my life at the moment other than work, school, hanging out with friends, and TV. I kind of watched "Veronica Mars" nonstop (I didn't hang out with friends on Saturday night so I could watch more) and I might have already finished it and the movie. Obsessed is an understatement. I don't know how I could possibly watch anything else right now since nothing will compare for a while.
