Failure To Launch

words to live by.. 
DO NOT RATIONALISE CRAZY IDEAS UNLESS THEY'RE SOMEBODY ELSE'S AND YOU'RE DOING IT TO MAKE THEM FEEL BETTER.
the past few weeks have been chock-full of dumb shit that i've rationalised instead of facing the reality of the situations and dealing with them accordingly
1. wearing all black in the hottest week of the year..

2. convincing myself that attempting to make my graduation dress from scratch would result in anything other than a nightie for a midget.
the finished product...

jewellery, courts, bag; Primark
in its entirety the ensemble cost less than £40 which I'm proud of because now I've graduated I need to watch all my moneys until I get a paid job (snooooore being a grown up is boring)
I'd like to think I ended up looking like the love child of Amber Rose and Grace Kelly!

Well, considering that Amber Rose is mom, this is a good thing. The dress is cute!!!

And there's nothing wrong with rationalizing. Half the time, no one else is there to appreciate the crazy.

i wish someone had warned me about the stress of making 1 itty bitty dress before i started, nevertheless I'm glad i was broke and had no choice but to finish it [or go to graduation naked/in leggings!]
@Lauren the brand is Rimmel and the shade is 175-Signature Red!
