Moving In

I feel like you guys have seen these overalls a half a dozen times already on the blog, but that really isn't stopping me from posting them again because they are so amazing, and I don't think I can ever tire of the concept of overalls in general. These particular overalls I saw on a girl walking around the Fairfax Flea Market, and I had to stalk her until I worked up the courage to ask who they were by. When she said Current/Elliott, I logged it in my brain and then got on eBay later that night and miraculously found these babies just waiting for me. Sometimes, the style gods are looking out for you. Only sometimes, though.
I wore these overalls two days in a row because I was hauling things to my new apartment at USC. Living in an apartment off-campus has completely changed my perspective on college and life in general. It is so much fun to just be on your own, you know? Last year I lived in a dorm that was populated by the worst kind of people (a.k.a the incessantly drinking and throwing-up-in-the-halls type of people) and it wasn't fun or interesting to be around at all. Plus, my dorm had crazy security (good for my mom's habitual worries, not so good for me) and I'd literally have to get past four different locked thresholds and up three flights of stairs just to get to my hallway. Now, I'm in charge of basically everything. I can leave the door wide open or locked shut, throw-up in the hallways or not, and cook (or microwave) all the food I want. I think the moral of the story is: things get better.
