I don't usually get excited about TV, but tonight is the season premiere of Downton Abbey season 3. I've been rewatching season 2 for the past couple days now to prepare myself for tonight, and I'm hoping it's a wedding episode. For everyone else who was lucky enough to see it, pleassssse don't spoil it for me! For the past year, I've been restraining myself from looking up ANYTHING remotely related to Downton, so the anticipation has really built up.
But enough about wealthy lords and ladies, servants, and tea. I've finally figured out how to wear red without looking like a Christmas tree. I just wear it with a lot of black! Actually, this outfit was built around my felt X-men hair clip that I've been dying to wear, so black and red just seems common sense to pair with it. The gold flats are an homage to my favorite X-men subteam: The X-men gold team, leader: Storm.
When I was a kid, I saved up my measly allowance to buy X-men paraphernalia. Most of the time, I could only wait long enough to buy Fleer cards, but sometimes, I'd actually have enough to buy current single issues that I hoarded like gold. Because I couldn't buy them all that often, I'd have to read and reread every single bit of info on those cards and comics, and sometimes, I spout of useless bits of X-men info.
