Rendez-moi ma santé mentale

It's been a whole two weeks since he's been gone. A whole goddamn two weeks. I totally regret not documenting everything that we did. I remember around the time we were constantly hanging out every day, I bought a tiny little camera and took pictures of EVERYTHING. I managed to take pictures of everything but my dear cousin. It drives me crazy that I don't have as many pictures of him as I thought I did. Goddamnit if only I could explain to you guys better. But if I could give up everything that I have now, which to be honest is not a whole lot, just to see him again for 15 minutes. Just to see him, hear him, smell him, dance with him, ride in the car with him, rap with him, whatever, I would give it all up in a heartbeat.

Another update on my personal life, the owner/president of Forever 21, Mr. Chang, will be visiting my area this week. He is expected to fly in tomorrow afternoon. I will be slavin' for the next 24 hours. Hopefully I don't get fired.

Now, onto la mode de Yeye. Anyone that I work with can tell you I am fairly versatile. I go through phases on comfort. Sometimes I find comfort in just a simple pair of tights with "coochie cutters" and a hole-y t-shirt. Sometimes I find comfort in sweetheart floral dresses. Sometimes I find comfort in ruffles and sometimes I find comfort in maxi skirts. It all really depends on the time of year. Lately, I've been on a knack for floral prints and denim textures. Again, the whole Marc Jacobs thing is in full effect still this season. Mixing a floral dress with an oversized chambray top is totally the deal. Even a floral top with a denim jacket and some dark skinny's. And I also learned too with my mixology that one can mix SUBTLE leopard print shoes with vintage floral prints. I'm talking real vintage, liberty floral prints. Not so much watercolored realistic large floral prints. Denim shorts are obviously too a hit this season solely due to weather and the fact that denim looks so good with floral prints. But! This doesn't mean that I wear pants ;]
