Cavalry come, cavalry go, cavalry leave me alone.

I've come to realize that for some reason I'm always half asleep and desperately bored and lazy during the day, only to be wide awake and racing with inspiration when I attempt to sleep at night. As I lay tossing and turning trying to slow the thoughts in my brain, inspiration thrusted me out of my bed to my lap top where I've been researching this random inspiration.

First, I put together of some items that I feel that I must obtain. Those items being plaid shirts (think D&G status), black and red pencil skirts, a black mini dress to wear under a shirt, over sized black and white t-shirts or tank tops that I can spice up with fabulous accessories or shoes, leopard heels, white lace flats, a big white bow to wear in hair, button-up shirts, neon sneakers, black ankle boots, floral print dress, and a cropped leather jacket. I know, crazy much?

Second, I've found the inspiration to design again! After I sucked the life force from my "Alice in Wonderland" phase, I couldn't even stand to look at my sketchbook. So I buried it away in a drawer until time would reunite us once more, and now it has! There isn't exactly a "theme", persay, but it is definitely full of my lustful contradictions! Like...clothes for a girl who wants to be dominated, but she isn't going down without a fight. Like she won't just "submiss" to anyone, you have to overcome her. A little hard to explain, sorry, but it makes perfect sense to me.

And plus, it is late night delirium, but I couldn't wait until morning in fear of forgetting. I'm sure you understand.

And what do you know, this video just about summarizes it up (and it's not techno! :P)

I am the same. I am so bored during the day, and full of inspiration in the evening, and I can't get to sleep.
