Everything is Embarrassing

Varsity

Sunglasses, Rue 21; Jacket, Forever 21; Blouse, Old Navy; Jeans, American Eagle Outfitters; Boots, Steve Madden

I should probably mention that I did not actually wear this outfit to school. The top is against the dress code, and the first and only time I wore it to school was cheerless because I was scolded by the principal. I’m currently playing with different kinds of outerwear, particularly varsity jackets and sweaters. I think I’m trying to become the female version of Jim Stark. I’ve also started listening to the Talking Heads, and I’m scandalized that their song Psycho Killer has never been used during a high school power walk movie sequence. I bought the sunglasses impulsively because I felt the need to be a character in a John Hughes movie. I’m not smiling at the camera because I am an angsty teenager.

I wore this outfit to school because it was appropriate and because it is so unironically preppy. I’m grimacing at the camera because I was starving when this picture was taken, and because I am physically incapable of genuinely smiling at any living thing. Also, I have chronic bitchface.

An Intro Post

Hello, my name is Isabella Cantillano. I love large cities, vintage dresses, nouveau gothic clothing, and I enjoy turning ballet skirts into capelets. I hate exposed zippers, crowded subways, sweatpants, and green eyeshadow.
