Those iconic lyrics are from "Masquerade" from The Phantom of the Opera. I'm working on a a scene in a book, and there's a masquerade involved. I've got to choose what the main character's mask looks like, and I thought, "Why don't I ask my blog-readers?" So, I am. :) The options are below, the poll to the right. Please vote! Your mask choice will also help me determine her dress because they've got to coordinate.
Have any of you seen this the ABC Family TV show, Jane by Design? I have, and it's pretty good. There's some objectionable content, but I love all the fashion. Recently, I hopped on ABC Family's website and found out they had an album of all of Jane's outfits. I practically went "Squee!", haha. Just wanted to show you a couple of my favorites. ;)
What I like about this outfit: It's basically an LBD (Little Black Dress) with a twist. It's got a vintage-y look, and Jane's necklace livens up the simple top.
That dress... O.O Gorgeousness wrapped in retro-chic. I would wear that, if it came in my size. Not sure where, but I'd definitely wear it, haha.
If I wasn't so darn tiny (barely out of kids' sizes, to my chagrin), this is similar to what I'd love to wear every time I go out in public. Dark-wash jeans, a classy blouse, and probably some amazing high-heeled boots. Epicness. <3
I kept a secret from most of you. I kept most of you thinking I didn't have my iPad yet. Well, Friday, I got it. At Best Buy (so it's not engraved). It's white. And I got the pink polyurthane (sp?) cover for it. I've been loving every minute of having my iPad. My mom says I'm obsessed,and it's detracting from my schoolwork, but I beg to differ. I got schoolwork done before she got up this morning, plus French assignments and the remaining biology questions from the current chapter. Who's to say I'm not keeping up? (Well, keeping it up when I'm behind already from other factors...)
Please vote in the poll appearing shortly! It is tres important. I'm going to be getting my iPad soon (since the iPad 2's are on sale), and I might possibly be getting it from the Apple website. If I go with that option, I can get something engraved on the back for free. So, I want your help deciding what to put on the back. You can choose one of these three options.
Option 1) "Fashions fade, but style is eternal."~Yves St. Laurent
Option 2) I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end He will stand upon the earth.~Job 19:25
Option 3) "No one can be called friendless who has God and the companionship of good books."~Elizabeth Barrett Browning
The poll will be up through the weekend. My parents are making me wait until next week to get it. :P
I'm getting very excited because tomorrow is the release of the new 39 Clues book! The Dead of Night, it's called. The problem is, my mom is working tomorrow, so she can't take me to get it, and her schedule wouldn't work for her to pick the book up for me. So I have to wait until Friday. :P At least four days isn't as bad of a wait as six months. Yup, that's how long they're making us wait for book 4. I think that's outrageous. The first book in the new 39 Clues series (Cahills vs. Vespers) came out in August. The second, December. This one, March. Those are only about three months apart each. So why a six month wait for the next book? I'll bet they're trying to stretch the series out as long as possible. Blasted marketing tricks.
In other news, who's getting excited for....The Hunger Games?
