I Think A Big Part of This is Affected by my Menstrual Cycle

I'm a horrible person, I have abonded my little corner of the internet for educational pursuits (yay for readings about Lay Investiture in the medieval ages!) and work.
But, I'm back. For a short period of time atleast. I'm probably going to be spending the rest of the week working on an essay about Chaos and Order in medieval England and doing random art history readings. But, let's forget about that and talk about homecoming dresses.


This is such a Leith dress. Which is funny because me+strapless=nipplegate 2.0. Seriously, I am quite small in the chest area. I know it's not your classic homecoming dress but I like it. And I would wear it, if it weren't for the previously mentioned fiasco. $425 from Adam + Eve. Which is insane. No one buys actually nice dresses for homecoming. Forget I ever mentioned it. And the model looks totally constipated.


I don't care what anyone says, this is the perfect party dress. Except for the whole bubblehem. What is with all these dresses being almost perfect. I hate this. I'm just gonna stop talking about this dress. $330.


I really love this dress. I love the hair too. What is my obsession with hair lately? Anywho, the only thing wrong with this dress is that it only comes in size two. Which really isn't so sad. Get off your butt and go exercise. I have a bit of a fat ass and I can still fit into size 2 dresses. And, OH EM GEE! Eva Mendes wore it. $295.


About 20,000 people are gonna see this dress and say "THAT'S SO UGLY! It's a grandma dress!" and I'm going to sit here thinking to myself, "You are a moron." Maybe I'm in a bit of a bad mood? I do believe so. Whatever, with the right body type you could look unbelievably hot in this dress. APC pleated dress, $237.

I give up. I'm too tired and in too much of a bad mood to deal with this. I'm gonna either wear a black dress I bought at Urban Outfitters last year (I'm so up to date) or this will be my latest purchase.

fabulous post leith! the sequin bubble dress is a personal favorite.....i discovered it like 3 weeks ago when i was watching disney channel (with my little sister!) and the girl from high school musicals music video came on and she was wearing it, i love it! She was swinging randomly on channdleirs and i was like " wow......thats so freakin cool!" although that song is so bad,....she wears some cute shit in it (im very jelious.) I love the As u Wish dress.....i might buy it for my holiday ball because its so damn sweet. I like it in the red personally.....in wear it with leapord print shoes! It would tone down the sweet-im-a-daddys-girl-ladida vibe. With....im not at all so thats good. As for the comment about being a size 2? shut the fuck up. no one want to hear that. good for you for shoving your ass in jeans till the button pops off but no thank you....if im a 4, im a 4....if im a 2 im a 2, just work with what you have. The "grandma" looking dress, although i wouldn't wear it, is delightfully cute.....id pair it with pumps.....like the white christian loubutins? or the mary jane ones?! ohhh! yeah....with a chanel necklace. I dont know where im getting all of this money all the sudden....but its fun. I love the eva mendes dress! its so sweet and flirty and elegant! The pockets are so cool.....you wouldn't need to worry about a clutch all night and could just party away with your cell phone in one pocket and your lip stain in the other.....plus anything eva mendes wears is automadically amazing. I also love the cut of this dress, its very angelic.....it reminds me of something mischa barton would wear on the OC (except unlike her....were not wearing it to hide the fact that our collar bones are jabbing through are skin.) That dress just automatically made me happy. Its a little rebellious to....id wear it with pumps....white ones or black ones. Not red though....to i worship satin. The adam + eve reminded me of something the bitchy girl from legally blonde would wear, yeah if ur a 00 you could pull it ff....but id be tough NOT to look like a stringent bitch. plus....homecoming is about having fun....letting loose and dancing the night away. You prbably cant even walk in that dress. But its cute if your at an office party! So thats all i got....very nice leith......

Wow serena has alot of spare time lol as for me I think the adam+eve dress is a little dull but the second dress looks like alot of fun although I'd be freezing because it looks so teeny. As for the black dress its really pretty, but I don't really like the pockets, even though it'd be convienent. Yeah i'm one of the 20 000 who don't like the last dress lol sorry :P but its drab.

hey leith, as you may know, time to time i talk shit about your blog, and try to be superior to you by saying what's good that you do, and what isn't. I would like to take this time and appologize. I don't have a good blog and i know that, barely any visitors, and i am unoriginal. you are obviously good enough to get your blog in a magazine and have more than ten thousand people visit it. So i hope you can forgive me of my bitchiness. I was just jealous and didn't realize it.

best of luck,
rin

the first dress is amazing! it is unique and instead of being the dance piriah, everyone would love how different (in a good way) you would look! but yes, she looks just a tiny bit constipated lol...i love the black too, it's sexy in a subtle way! btw, i've been there w/ lay investiture!

okay. i have a proclamation.
i want the old wafflesandfashion back. i mean, i really don't care that much...but it would be nice to have the old, witty, stylish blog back. whatever. the whole blog thing is getting dull anyway.
why do we all center around this one particular blog, anyway? is it because leith was in ellegirl?
i know i'm going to have hordes of angry commenters saying things like "if you don't like it, stop logging on to it! we love leith! she is our queen!" blah blah blah. but hasn't anyone noticed that leith never comments on your blog, never adds you to her list of blogs, never really does much, and doesn't deserve your attentions???
whatever.

whatever your friends like? or what?

Blogger Meredith said...

Please don't say "you Americans"
It makes you sound ignorant, which I'm sure, anonymous, you are not.
And I'm sure our sense of fashion is derived from the same infuences YOU have: friends, our mother's vintage dresses, celebrities, and...GASP our own creative selves. So before you sound so condescending, do your homework.

has anyone ever noticed leith seems to pretty much hate everyone who visits her blog? she never responds to comments, never links anyone who asks to be linked, and always treats us like dirt. i mean, yea, she's clever and witty and oh so cool but come one, she'd not god. don't live by what she says is fashion. i mean, she's just a teenager, like a lot of us are. it's only her opinion. don't feel bad if she rags on something you just might like. don't cry over it. take it all in stride. leith isn't the queen of fashion. she's just a big headed, spoiled, and waaaaaay too sure of herself girl who thinks she knows all about fashion.

i like this blog but sometimes, leith can just be too much of a bitch.

okay leith. get off your butt and go exercise. ill be sure to mention that to the majority of american women- i.e. a size twelve. everybody cant be a size two girl, and big can be very beautiful. i understand how girls like you can't appreciate that, but i come from a long line of people with booty- obviously not something you need to worry about.

you know everyone says we should try harder to appeal to the average woman, and i agree. but it's also frustrating trying to shop as a size 0 when most places carry mainly over size 3. and unlike women who are overweight, skinny girls are automatically given shit about being anorexic or bulimic. trust me, i don't want my enormous ribcage sticking out anymore than it already does =P

Shes just writing in a blog, its not real life here....
Everyone has bitchy moments when they want to rag, it's part of being a normal person and
in my opinion it's SO much more interesting when someone puts emotion, whatever it may be, into what they are writing.
As far as adding people and responding to comments, come on!
It's called privacy, not having enough time etc, not being a bitch. Some people are way to immature.

I saw your post above, but I decided to comment on this one.
people were actually angry with you because you said "go exercise"? how ridiculous! have we really become so whiney as a whole that we have to complain about someone saying "GO EXERCISE"? I don't even get it. saracstic or not, that was not a big deal. stop being so damn concerned about other people being politically correct and DO get off your ass and exercise. no sarcasm intended.

Woaahhh guys, I don't think she meant it THAT way. Like she wasn't saying that all fat people are fat because they don't exersize. she wasn't saying that people who are over a size two are ugly. Why do people keep on bitching on Leith? and everyone else who comments, for that matter. People just can't take jokes anymore.. but centering on the actual fashion, I loved the sequined bubble dress. How much... 200? 300? me wantey for bat mitzvah dressey.... hehe.
