Goodbye Poundcake Pirate. Hello Call It Catherine.

Just to let y'all know, there is a new blog underway called Call It Catherine. Poundcake Pirate will be deleted. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Lookie lookie what I just found.
Vintage 80's YSL Black Pumps for 99 cents. (Plus $11 shipping, but I can deal.)
I considered not giving you the link, but I decided that that's pretty jerkish. Click.
Thankyou, Sea of Shoes, for inspiring me to peruse ebay.
Although I'm convinced that it was meant to be. 99 cents, my size, and they're even residing in Herndon, VA, which is where I spent 4 years of my childhood.
Destiny. Seriously.
G'night. Sleep tight. Don't let the bed bugs bite.

Forever 21 has some colored skinny jeans for only $13.50 a pop. There are three colors that I like, and I need some help deciding what to get. There's white, which would be a nice staple. There's grey, and grey is one of those colors that I really love right now, but I'm a bit worried that I won't want to wear them once the weather starts to get a bit nicer. And there's purple, which is the most intriguing of the three.
So, should I get all three? Just two? You tell me.

P.S. Go get yourself some! Click.

Goals, I suppose. Oh, and I'm weird.

Again, I am so sorry for the blog being so dormant. Insert lame excuse about no time here.

This summer my family and I are going to the big island of Hawaii for 3 weeks.

**Side note: If you have the choice, go to the big island instead of Oahu. Oahu is so industrialized, and it's hard (at least for me) to see it as paradise.

It's been the only thing I've been able to concentrate on for the past couple of days. Which is bad, because what I need to focus on is ball handling for basketball and "patience" in my breaststroke. Boo Coach Gill!

I've decided to "design" an few articles of clothing to wear on our trip. I think this will help pass the time, and give me the inspiration to get my gosh darn sewing machine running. I'll try to blog my progress.

BTW - Threadbanger has had some wonderful tutorials over the past couple of weeks! Go make some panties out of a flannel shirt or a super cute dress out of an old sweatshirt! Go!

How have you been?

"Oh goodness! Oh my!"

I apologize for being so absent these past few weeks. I just haven't had much desire to come and blog about how my life consists of school, swimming, and basketball. That's no fun. But, I really wanted to share this bit of news about my life because it is uber exciting.....

My sister is most likely moving to Milan! Ahhh!

Well, close to it. 21 miles away from it, to be exact. She's a freshman in college, and she just found out that she can study physics and engineering next year. Free tuition, because she exceeded her AIMS.

Pretty sweet, eh? I told her that I have to fly out for the spring fashion shows. I don't actually want to go to the fashion shows, I just want to hang around outside of them and drool at the oh-so wonderfully dressed fashionistas and...fashionitos?.
