Don’t you forget about me!

I have looks I will update within the next week! Fistfloyd is back in business and there are oh, so many ensembles I’ve got in store to knock your socks off. Figuratively, though. You can keep your feet to yourselves. ;)

Take It Or Leave It.

I struggled with this outfit — a lot. I was very indecisive about which parts I felt belonged. Ultimately I picked the funkiest pieces I could put together. The ensemble is a bit bizarre; much like this song, much like the artist. Listening to Cage The Elephant makes me feel rebellious, sans cause - if you know what I mean. I was definitely feeling my outfit and myself (because, holla, I’m a powerful young woman with so much potential, you know) and this song encourages being self aware while managing to stay true to one’s feelings!

The print on the turtle neck (thrifted, somewhere!) mixed with the print on the windbreaker (my roommate’s) is an unconventional pairing but something about it felt right. I can always count on my lace top and my “Annie Hall” vest to complete me - uh, I mean, to complete my outfit. Finally, another important part of this is the handbag I found for five bucks at the Salvation Army nearby. It is the perfect size and the perfect accessory for any outfit, something that my photographer (hi, Meg) pointed out to me.

This is from a while back, and it’s been a while so I wanted to post the thing!

KYABELL I LOVE YOUR BLOG. THIS IS CARRIE BY THE WAY. SORRY I HAVE A FANDOM BLOG BUT UGH YOU'RE ADORABLE AND LOVELY. BYE <33

Haha, I love it! And I miss you, girl! Much love. ❤❤

Afterlife.

The object of this blog is to express how certain sounds (songs, music) give you a feeling. And everything, I believe, is set up exactly the way it is supposed to be. This song always brought on many different emotions, but I feel it’s titled perfectly. “Afterlife.” Being in Chelsea Market this day, for the first time and with two of my favorite people, was like that. It felt kind of surreal, as if I was outside myself. And I felt so comfortable. This is the same place I took the pictures for my last post (with lordglyphics in it, holla).

I don’t look very amused in these photos, but I swear I was having a great time! I’m wearing my favorite dress, which I bought several years ago (from Forever 21) for Thanksgiving. A cool d.i.y crop top which used to be a regular black t I got for free (free new, at SUNY Purch). And the jean jacket was a gift from mom (from Old Navy, who has the best sweaters, man). It was a fun, pretty outfit. And yes, the shirt has a stain on it. It might’ve been toothpaste? Eh, who knows.

I’ve got drafts, they’re multiplying!

Actually, though, there are several drafts I am trying to perfect before I show you all. They are piling up so you should see them very soon. It is finals and my laptop is dead, but these are minor obstacles. So, stay tuned!

In the meantime, if you have yet to hear these folks I do recommend:

Empire M.A.F.I.A, for those who are into Hip Hop. They are innovative and genuinely talented. Check out this recap video of their Redemption concert beginning at SUNY Canton.

Flight of the Navigator.

Now, let me tell you, I have been backed up with so many photos I haven’t had the time to put up. Since I started fistfloyd I’ve started finding inspiration in so many different aesthetics and styles. Here’s one of three outfits from a day out with good friends (all of which you’ll get to see, here! aha!”) This is Jairo, who happens to be quite a photogenic darling.

Song: Flight of The Navigator - Childish Gambino

The song in itself expresses everything I felt, and the tunes are blissful.

That night I was feeling free, and timeless in a way, moments of that night made me realize the youth in me as I traveled to places in the city that I never knew existed. There was nothing to it; nothing very exciting happened, but all I needed was the cool spring breeze and good friends to help me realize, that little moments like those that happened that night, are all you need to be at peace with yourself. I felt like I could go anywhere, do anything — forever — even if it was just for a moment. Crazy, I know. I was the epitome of the lost youth that we should see more of today.

Oh my outfit, short sleeve obey button down, H&M pullover hoodie, Abercrombie & Fitch Skinnys, Jordan’s Fire Red 3s, Obey Snapback.”

wow hi you're really pretty just wanted to let you know i'm like intensely obsessed with your style but i was just wondering, i'm in the process of deciding colleges and i wanted to know your general opinion on purchase? like i'm sort of hesitant to say yes so i wanted to talk to people who actually go there and experience everything so any input you have would be gr8 thanks :))))

hello there! thanks a million for your compliments, i’ve checked out your blog as well, and let me tell ya, the appreciation is mutual. my style isn’t nearly as developed as i wish/hope it will be in the next year or so.

as for Purchase, i love it. i knew for a while it would be the perfect place for me. there is an amazing music scene, which is very important to me. as it’s predominantly art based, there is a whole lot of student art all around campus; from sculptures to paintings to performance arts. coming from new york city where there’s this detachment between people, purchase is the perfect balance of that art-heavy, fast paced life i need and the “friendly neighbor”, forresty environment i crave.

does that make any sense? anyway, i think purchase is great. it’s really small, though. like, if you live on campus you’ll probably see the same 20-30 people after all the commuters are gone.

good luck choosing a college to attend! and let me know if you decide to join us at purchase. :) ♥
