Hard Candy Sky Review, Photos, Konad Design

2 Feb

I have to admit something to you all. I think a little bit of Her Royal Chicness Coco Chanel resides in my being. Beyond my tattoos and band t-shirts, I would really love to spend a few days of the week in an impeccably tailored tweed suit and pearls. You know, if it were even marginally practical for a college student who mostly gets around on foot. These little piggies cry WEE WEE WEE every time I wear anything but flat shoes, a quality that I think Mlle. Chanel would have frowned upon.

Hype and I don’t really get along. I’m one of those people for whom the hype surrounding a certain entity, whether it be a band, a movie, or a product, really doesn’t do much to make me want it. In fact, a lot of hype and buzz more often than not turns me off. What can I say? I have hipster tendencies, every last one of which I loathe. Continue reading
