Poisonous

I never knew that the following two words could put so much misery into my life:

or for all I know, poison oak or sumac.
(the doctor wasn't sure: he said it could be any of the three.)

But whatever it is, it's itchy and it sucks. Anyway, it was spirit week in honor of homecoming which basically means being able to dress up like a fool and not get looked at like you're too crazy. So, to match my poison ivy and my irate mood last week, it was accordingly class color day. Which for some reason unbeknown to me (but sort of ironically) is red!

So, itchy itchy itchy...but still, I'm managing.

(And crossing my fingers that it will be gone soon!)
Annie's shirt, Forever 21 necklace, mom's skirt, gifted headband
Until then, long sleeves for me!
P.S I hyperlinked poison ivy for your benefit, dear reader, so you can visit the official poison ivy site and avoid the dreaded plant at all costs.
(You're welcome.)

You are very funny. And you look pretty against all the flowers. And I hope your poison ivy goes away soon! We should ward it away with breakfast and thrift shopping.

Leaves of three let them be D: I hope your poison ivy gets better sooon! It's certainly not dampening your style at least, I see! The third picture is very neat looking :]

Sher said...

If it's any consolation, you look so lovely in red though:)

Oh no!
The dreaded stuff grows around my school. A poor friend of mine found a caterpillar near it, stumbled and, well, lets just say that she wore nothing but pants for a month.
And even then she was constantly itching.

I love you blog, by the way.

Love all the red. Poison ivy is the worst and I'm highly allergic to it so it's really awful whenever I get it. I suggest baths with Epsom salt!
