Like many times in secondhand stores, these shorts had a minor defect (the zipper on the fly doesn't work- oh no!), but will be fixed easily thanks to my mom's great seamstress skills.
Another favorite purchase of mine is this chunky, gold owl ring that I snagged for a dollar at Rue 21. I usually never have luck in that store due to over-picked clothing or shabby quality, but I love this ring! My obsession with owls will never end.
In other news, after a year and three months of embarrassment, agony, and being mistaken for a 14-year-old, my braces came off today! Today is certainly a wonderful day.
If you're feeling like your ears need a quick pick me up, take a listen to a live version of Maroon 5's next single, "Give A Little More." I cannot get over how amazingly talented these guys are, and they fact that I never grow tired of listening to their music. Although I usually don't listen to "radio" artists, they are the one exception. I can remember back to the days nearly eight years ago when I fell in love with their funk-inspired pop-rock; they are simply timeless.
