November 1: Checking how many Instagram likes your costume got last night. The time changes (good thing, because your Halloween festivities basically required that extra hour of sleep). We get a little more daylight in the morning (beats waking up in the dark). Now ready for bed around 5:30pm. Everything Halloween on clearance (taking advantage of the candy sale, specifically). So what does it all mean? Cue the Christmas commercials!
Or as we’d say on AIM circa 2001 — BaCk 2 SkEwL kEwL. Whether you’re still in school, still paying for school although you’re no longer in school or just want to feel a little nostalgic for second / have an excuse to go shopping, then listen up.
I’m not sure why now, but in the last couple of weeks I’ve had many conversations about social media (more specifically Instagram). You’ve heard it a few times on Fashion Friends and it’s not like it’s the first time I’ve brought it up here on CCF, but because ‘gramming gets so much attention, I’d like to focus on my OG friend, Twitter.
Last year, I decided to go a different route here on CCF for this weekend’s popular music festival — instead of a “what to wear to Lollapalooza” type of post, I thought I’d get all Anthony Bourdain on you and create The Lollapalooza Layover — basically what to do this weekend if you’re in town for Lolla and will not be at the festival from open ’til close. But a lot has happened in a year. So it’s time for an update!
