Jean Genie

So, here is my indescribably beautiful Betsey Johnson denim jacket...it's quite possibly the bestest thing I own. Besides my drawing tablet.



Best part? $15.
I kid thee not. It has a tear on the left side of the chest, but in all honesty, I don't care if it was missing an entire sleeve.


(it has safety pins all up and down the sleeves; probably the only reason I didn't wear it through airport security last week.)

Jacket: Betsey Johnson New York
Dress: Mustard Seed

I'm soooo excited for the long weekend, guys! My college doesn't observe a lot of holidays (not even Veteran's Day!!), so I was pleasantly surprised when my professors reminded us not to come to class on Monday. :D

I don't really have any new drawings today....most of the morning was spent painting (and those are horrible; they will never be seen by the light of day).

Here's some old stuff, though, if you want a look:

Sorry for the long post! D:
