It was AMAZING I was in a trance of beautiful rap rave and insane mind melting visuals. We were front row for a lot of it here is what I mainly remember:

1. I still can't believe Yo-landi is real like omg
2. I saw two people from my school which was actually pretty cool to know there are fellow weirdos there
3. Ninja wore his boxers and did the zef side dance like two feet away from me
 4. I saw both of their asses
5. Sixteen Jones came out at the end and Ninja back flipped into the crowd right next to us and we touched him.

 I also got a tee- they were out of NINJE!

nifty thrifting

a pretty boring outfit with a neato striped shirt i got for 2 dollars and some mens shoes for $9, they are only slightly too big for me... I got them with a certain DIY in mind

I plan on painting toes on them CDG style vvv soon, so they will get cuter (? are toes rlly cute tho ???) 

so yeah, a DIY IS SOON TO COME! 

hopefully they will turn out as rad as these

Anyways, my posting may be kinda mellow, I am currently at my grandmas just chilling, so no DIYS til I get home (most likely)

"my grandma didn't even show up"

Tiana's work at the show!!! Her stuff is amazing, I love her still lifes. 

 one of her rad still lifes she did

The dress I wore in the photo a little closer- it was thrifted. I was up super late in the computer lab workin' on my stuff.

A polaroid of me that a kid named Julian used in his installation! I have a larger photo but idk if I should post it since idrk him very much??

πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ art museums πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

At SAIC we got passes into all the art museums for free!!! It was a dream c: I saw the GIANT RenΓ© Magritte show and it was fantastical, no photos were allowed, and I didn't have my camera anyways. I did buy a big book of postcards and another book of surrealist party games! Then we went as a class to see some Frida Kahlo and her contemporaries at the MCA. Frida is a massive inspiration to me, and they had some other really amazing works about gender in society. I have seen Frida's work in person before, and its level of detail always amazes me.

I don't know why but I didn't take photos of that exhibit, but I took some of Isa Genzken's art. It is found art- and I am not too sure if I am on board with it really, but i must say she has an eye for color for sure. Also, I took some selfies c:

 the modern art of the selfie

🌺🌿🌳 big sky looking down on all the people 🌺🌿🌳

shirt: Hollywood Mirror, skirt: American Apparel (on super sale!) shoes: Payless

Tiana and I went to Millenium park to draw and hang out and she took a photo of my outfit c:


I thought these stues were super cool, they were like an optical illusion.

a tiny photo journal

sorry i am such a busy (lazy) blogger lately


I went to SAIC's ECP in Chicago for fashion illustration!!!! That's where I have been for pretty much the past month- I am sad my outfits didn't really get photographed directly, I was really busy with a lot of homework! I am going to do a little photo journal thing of it in this post. I do actually have a lot of photos of me and my friends though.

Heres some pics of my outfits first! Some were taken by my friend Emma, some by me, and the professional looking ones by the awesome Tiana.

Me and Sam and Emma who I will miss very much :c

Me and Emma took mirror selfies almost every day! I miss everyone so much :c

Tiana (who did photography, duh) took these awesome pics! I got this dress thriftin' there too.

Me and Mark hanging our fashion illustrations on the last day (MYYY BEEEEAAANNSSS) Mine ar ethe ones mounted on white which I may or may not post. 

I wore these on the last day- found at a messy and creepy fabric store, along with baby doll heads and arms (too be seen in later DIYS I assure you).

 Us on the last night after the show, I wore my silver mini dress.

Me and all the fashion kids and our amazing teachers Annie and Chiara! I love you all and this has been one of the best experiences of my life c: I will never forget this amazing two weeks, all I learned,  and all of the friends I made from around the world. c':

I will post some individual outfit posts fromt the trip next


These are some photos from about a month ago when I went to Third Man ( AKA JACK WHITE'S RECORD LABEL in Nashville). It is dreamy (especially if you are an extreme Tesla dork like me).

Dress- thrifted in Nashville, I match third man's color scheme!

In the store front: crop top- wet seal i think (ew), skirt (actually a dress) jc penny, shoes juju jellys

This look isn't very exciting, but my colors remind me of Godard films c:

dress: vintage lacoste, shoes: topshop, tights: target

LOOK AT THIS! I got it at goodwill for 7 dollars. 

I think it is pretty great for a 7 buck find. 

Also I got my Cherry Glazerr record! 

It is so qt!!! I am adding to my collection of colored vinyl they are so cute!! I have purple and yellow Mac Demarco records, a banana yellow syd barrett, and now this one! Also I got that lil kewpie doll at an antique store recently.

✿✿✿✿ MAY VIBES ✿✿✿✿

AHHHHHH!!!!! I haven't blogged in so long! I have not done anything except synchro, eating, and sleeping as of late. I had to temporarily take down Rad Bones to :c It has been a little rough lately--- and today is the last day of synchro so I will be able to post more outfits!!!!

So, for now I am going to do a May/Spring vibes post compiling everything I am into/discovered when I was not bloggin FOR A WHOLE MONTH (I was miserable for most of it haha)


I am so excited to wear colorful skirts and this new denim romper thing I got!! I love summer and walking around at night when it is all warm c: Also this summer I will be in Chicago for a fashion design summer camp!! I am so stoked about it!!!!

⚛⚛⚛⚛ MOVIES ⚛⚛⚛⚛

Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas

THIS MOVIE IS THE BEST THING EVER. I am reading the book now and it is even better- Hunter S. Thompson is literally the coolest person ever. My little brother is actually going through a Hunter S. Thompson phase so I bought him some yellow glasses and now he wears them w his acapolco shirts, and he read the book too c: Anyways I loved it. 

We Need To Talk About Kevin

I recently watched this movie and omg it was amazing- even though the whole time I was seriously gritting my teeth bc it was chilling and very idk, it made me feel helpless I guess-- it is about a psychopath kid basically, and the ending made me cry like a lil baby. Also, I am kind of in love w Ezra Miller bc he is an amazing person and actor (and a cutie). Tilda Swinton was, as always, amazing as well. i really liked this movie because it was actually sympathetic to mothers of psychopaths-- which our society usually shuns and blames even when it isn't in their control. 

I have also been kinda obsessed w Dane Dehaan- I mostly know him from The Place Beyond The Pines (I saw it in theaters and it is seriosuly amazing on everyone's part) but specifically just this shoot: 

ughhh I just love the styling, colors, poses, and also he cute. (I have literally reblogged this on my tumblr at least 8 times). PS my tumblr is also martianteen and it is basically my mood board. 

♫♫♫♫ MUSIC ♫♫♫♫

Toro y Moi

CAN'T EVEN DESCRIBE IT. His music is amazing and I can't stop listening to Anything In Return. My favorite song is probably Rose Quartz, or High Living. Also, Toro y Moi is hecka cute too, legit just watch this music video he is literally the best- he just does his lil Napolean Dynamite dance and hugs trees and it will make your day. 

Cherry Glazerr

Ughhhh they are so perfect, it is a fuzzy noise-rockesque sound with Clementine's fucking magical voice and lyrics that are so good and it alll just comes together and is magical. I am waiting for my Haxel Princess pink vinyl to come in the mail still I am getting so impatient! My favorite song is All My Friends, as of rn. 


I have also been listening to a lot of FIDLAR. My favorite is probably Stoked and Broke bc idk I really like that one line "all my friends r pieces of shit" haha. But yeah, they are a p great band. 

I might make a list of things (clothes) I am achin' to buy a little later today (I have a lot of free time, I am at an all day synchro meet) and some makeup inspiration I have been feelin. I also experimented w some resin casting and it turned out alright-- I will post some stuff when I get home! I am in a jewelry class again and I just cast a silver ring, and now I am making a spoon, and I threw (idk what verb to use?) a bowl on the wheel in ceramics that suprising turned out alright for a newbie like me!
