King Cat

I just spent three hours baking a cheesecake for tomorrow's Christmas Eve dinner which is weird because I have never been so dedicated to baked goods before, unless of course I'm eating them. I'm oddly excited about this Christmas and I think that has something to do with the lack of gift buying and receiving. So far, I have only prepared pleasantries for Daniel and vice versa. Other than alleviating the pressure of pleasing everyone and having to fake gratitude for receiving lame gifts are no longer the biggest issues, my minimalistic approach to gift-giving this year I think will really allow me to enjoy Christmas for what it really is --- eating and drinking with those you love.
Foccusing on something relevant to fashion, it is no news that I love the 90's and am obsessed with the stylings of grungers. Lately, I noticed that while I do enjoy going about in different styles, but I am absolutely in love and most comfortable with dressing up by "dressing down", grunge style. To me, nothing says " I am way too cool to care about what I'm wearing, but I still look rockin' " more than those anti-hip Seattle kids.

Perhaps I should look more nonchalant to match the carelessly ripped tights?

I was content with just a partial showing of the overalls but I figured in order to appreciate just how 12 I look, a full view is necessary.

I got this meshy/lace shirt from a Value Village in Seattle. It goes with the theme of the outfit, don't you think?

Aww, hell yes! I love the ripped tights/grunge look like no other, as of course you would know.
