new post at new blog!

If you haven't clicked over to my new blog,


, do it now! Pretty soon I'm gonna stop reminding you here at The Right Hypotenuse. So go go go! NEW POST HERE!

Monday, August 30, 2010



Oh, The Right Hypotenuse. It's been a long time, Old Blog, and I'm sorry but I think we should break up. It's just that we were so young when we met, and I think it's only natural that as we grew up, we also grew apart. I have to leave you; it's over. Also, I met someone else. Someone new. New Blog and I have a future together, and you, Old Blog, you and I just don't. I'm sorry. I loved you but it's time to move on.

No, no, you didn't do anything wrong. It's not you, it's me. I've just become a different person than I was 3 years ago, and I have to move on.

What's New Blog's name? Oh, it's ape-z. Yeah, it has the same name as my etsy shop and my facebook page and my twitter account. You were just the odd one in the bunch and I had to change that.

Look, I'm really sorry. I hope we can still be friends. We can still get together sometimes and look back on our years together. I love a good trip down memory lane. Like, remember our first post? Crazy.

Okay? Are you going to be okay? Okay good.

Please don't stalk my relationship with New Blog, ape-z by following the blog with bloglovin' or subscribing to its feed. That would just be creepy.


That was weird.

But seriously, I'm moving to a new blog!! I hope that this one will be prettier and funnier and better and smarter and generally more attractive than my ex-blog. Just like all boyfriends should be in relation to ex-boyfriends.

the new header at my new blog!
So go ahead and read my first post on my new blog! And then read my second post on my new blog! And then continue to read all the future posts on my new blog!

(count the number of times i linked to my new blog in this post? first person to answer correctly wins a virtual hug? ehhh? ehhhhh?!)

love and right triangles,

finally found the perfect leopard print flats

In 9th grade, I bought a pair of Rocket Dog leopard print flats for $15 in the clearance section at DSW.
And I wore them to death. I still have them and I still love them but I can't wear them as much because they get very gross very fast.

So I've been on the hunt for a new pair for quite a while, but every pair I found was either weirdly shaped, too expensive, or had some strange feature that I just didn't understand (like being metallic or bejeweled or fuzzy).


Target saved my life. But it wasn't just any Target. Out of the four Targets in my area and, only ONE Target had these shoes. Seriously. They weren't even online!
Given the mysterious elusiveness of not only these leopard print flats but of all leopard print flats known to mankind, I had to buy them, even if I had to shell out a whopping 25 bucks. (kidding, though I never really spend that much on shoes)

I took the opportunity to wear my romper to work training today since rompers are really ridiculously impractical for wearing in many other situations. PLUS, it's finally nice and warm and sunny and August-like. Wearing boots and tights in August is just not meant to be.
Lexy at Quirky Explosion (one of my most favoritest blogs) requested a tutorial on my nails. Since I love her so much, I will totally do it, so stay tuned for that! :)

What else can I do for y'all? Tutorials? more DIY? more nail polish? Let me know!

romper, Marshall's, $7
cardigan, H&M, $15
shoes, Target, $25
earrings, Claire's, $1

inspired by proenza schouler spring 2010.....even though it's basically fall

When I wasn't at work this summer, I was probably at Marshall's. It was pretty bad.

But there was this tank top which looked exactly like this skirt:
Proenza Schouler Spring 2010 (

And it was on sale for $7. So I bought it, and then I went to a local fabric store and bought some wide black elastic, and this outfit was born:
had to take these photos in the bathroom.....
now that i'm back to school i have no place to take photos......
note the radtastic nails :)
Maybe I'll just suck it up and awkwardly take my photos on the quad where everyone can see me...miiiiight have to think about that for a while.

skirt, diy, $7 + $2
two yellow tanks, Old Navy + Urban Outfitters, $3 + $5
cardigan, Marshall's, $7
shoes, H&M, $13
belt, F21, $2
