*sniff sniff*

UGH!
Allergy season yet again...it's like my face hates me...
WOOOORRSST!!

Anywhoo...I'm finally done for the semester (WAHHH-HOOO!!!!) so it's now time to start thinking about what fashion decisions I'm making for SUMMER 2010...

Inspiration:
* Pucci
* Halston
* Haute Hippie
just to name a few...

ShopBop makes fashion-ising much easier. I'm kinda lazy about it; for someone that proclaims they're this much into fashion...EPIC FAIL.

HAHAH!!

Oh well...

According to the Bop...I'm somewhere between Downtown and Casual Chic.
WHO CHOOSE???

I say all the above!

Also because I'm broke on a budget, my plan is to make the following:
* use thrifted jeans to make myself some BF jeans
* mini A-line skirts
* dolman sleeve dresses
* t-shirt dresses

This summer I want fashion to be an after thought yet effortless. I ascribe to the whole notion that style is eternal (YSL). As long as every piece I acquire/buy/make make me happy, I should be good to go. Plus, I'm habitually distracted and have been known to run late due to obsessing over what I should wear.
NO MORE!!!

I'm going to be sassy off the jump so daily sassiness is automatic.

(hmmm...hopefully all that made sense...if not...eh....happens)

Shoes...Oh My Gad! Shoes!

OMG Shoes!



But then I saw these...



Ummm...ewww.
("these shoes suck!"- Kelly)

I understand trying to get on the bandwagon but COOOME OONNN!!!!!
Makes it even worse when other places (who shall not be named) endorse them...

Good try Nike...try harder next time.
Don't just do it...

It's finally starting to warm up...


I was on hiatus...but I'm back!

Soooo I realized that I'm OBSESSED with Halston...
Halston makes my life. I made a long black dress in homage, I gotta take pictures of it, it's suppose to be in the 70s for the rest of the week so I'll get out there and picture it up in the lovely sunshine!

INSPIRATION...

Spring 2009




Spring 2010


Which Halston wonderfulness is your favorite?

Happy Face!!!

This makes me very happy.




That is all.

Hippie Chic!


So I lost my cam.
UGH!
Oh well...on with the show...


I have just realized I have a love affair with Haute Hippie.


Really super intense, fast burning love affair.

And I already know that as soon as I'm able to get out of the house...I'm TOTALLY gonna DIY these puppies...
(I'm also probably gonna DIY some of the other pieces too, I'm soo BROKE!)






Sooo excited!!


Once this dag-on snow leaves us be!!


Thoughts on Haute Hippie..?

A Look At the Week(End)

Hello hello!!

Ok so I live in MD and currently it is SNOWWWINNNG!!!!


 It's really quite pretty outside, besides the whole "dangerous to drive" in thing. This snow storm is suppose to be pretty serious...like 20-30 inches serious. Not sure how to feel about that...


It's suppose to be so serious that EVERYTHING closed today around noon; schools, my work, government offices, tons of stuff. Closed. Many places already announced they were closed on Saturday too. I think it was a tad premature but I got off work so who am I to complain?

We'll see how this snow situation unfolds.

Since I'm suppose to be snowed in all weekend, all I'm gonna do is chill, catch up on my blogs, possibly get bored and play dress up and then do as much homework as I can muster out of myself. Also plan on documenting all the snow shenanigans that go on in my backyard. My Mugzy has a love affair with snow so this could end up being pretty hilarious...


Should be a pretty solid weekend.
What are your plans?

My Style!!

Ahh Monday...

Snow is still on the ground and there was a chill in the air...
But I'm still sassy!!

Boho Student
*white knit beret
*long gray scarf that I crocheted a looong time ago
*black long sleeved T-shirt
*blue/black/white dress
*black cardigan
*black opaque tights
*gray over the knee socks
*black, heeled, knee high boots

I thought I would try my hand at exposed socks peeking over boots: I like it!!
I felt so adorable today!
I even got hit on at Safeway by some dude pushing carts hahahah anything to raise the ole self esteem

I mean don't you see why..?













Ok enough shameless self promotion.
Today was such a good day. It was insanely productive. Also, I've decided to become more "domestic"...whatever that means. Basically I'm starting to cook more. I made breakfast (Baked Oatmeal<--massively good btw!! Just add dried fruit!), dinner for me and the boy and lunch for myself for Tuesday and Thursday so I don't have to leave campus or spend money on anything larger than a coffee/soda. I'm brizzzoke and I gotta start saving money where ever I can. It's gettin' there :-)

My Style!!

Today was butt-cold.

See. FEELS like 19.
It did.

Rather painful.
So I dressed accordingly.

Snow Bunny!!

*long white cardigan
*black leggings
*Fuzzy boots by Sporto
*layered black and white long sleeved t-shirts
*fuzzy bomber hat
*striped mittens
*pink pashima


So warm!
When we went outside, I was rocking my black peacoat.

The Boy took me to a late lunch at On The Border. Delish! I was so stuffed that I had to roll myself back to the car. Such a good feeling hahaha!

Lazy Sunday

Well it snowed allllll day yesterday.
Weather-people said "a light dusting" and "maybe an inch"...

My butt.


This doesn't look like a light dusting to me...



It's been so cold the last few days, me and my Mugzy have just been chillin' around the house.


































This is what we do hahahah
But if Mugz isn't being lazy inside, she's running around enjoying the snow.
Too cute.

Oh and on another note, I was blindly meandering the ole inter-web and I stumbled across this story.
I've never been in that situation and I'm not entirely sure how true it is...but it's massively hilarious either way.

Enjoy the last bits of your weekend!! 
Start the countdown for Friday!

Oh Kanye...keep the crazy to yourself

So Kanye and his gal-pal left the house like this.


One question...


WHY?


I'm all about being fashion-forward and a trendsetter and an individual...but there is a limit.
I think the limit is around Amber Rose's bikini line.


To be fair, I'm okay with Kanye's ensem. I think the shoes scream "my toes are fancy" and I think it's perfect for fashion week. And Amber Rose's booties are adorable...but her fashion sense is distracting. I think partially exposed nipples are a bit much...unless they're decorated tastefully.


Thoughts?

My Style!

Another daily outfit. I ended up going and grabbing lunch with my friend since this is my last day of vacation until my semester starts...yay...

Simple and Chic

















* wide leg jeans
* black turtleneck sweater
* pink and brown flats
* big ridiculous sunnies
* Nine West handbag
* amazing pink skinny pashima from Five Below




Super comfy. I felt quite glamorous, didn't even put make up on.





Then I had fun camouflaging how terrible I look messin' with effects...I do what I want :-D

Oh and yesterday I got my package from Go Jane, 3 pair of amazing heels for $36, including shipping.
Fist pumps!
I'll post them sooooon :-D




Damn you MTV!!!!

So I got hooked on Jersey Shore...
I'm really not proud of that fact.
But I can't help it.

The word is that Snooki (quite frankly my favorite to watch) *might* get her own reality show. Not sure how I feel about that...Ok ok ok...I admit it, I'll watch it religiously because she's insane to watch. Rumor has it that in February, she's suppose to make an appearance at a bar in the city near my house...who's gonna go and attempt to meet her..?

Me...
*sad face*

I'm so depressed that Jersey Shore has stolen my heart hahaha!!!

FIST PUMPS!!


And just for fun...if I was a Guidette, I clearly would rock my hair like this.

Dang it!!!
I'm actually glad my semester starts in 2 days so I can go back to ignoring popular culture and focus on Sociology, Investigation Discovery and adultswim. That's when my life can make sense again.

Umm...I can see your legs through your pants...

Ok my thifting has gotten out of control hahaha!

I found Gap jeans for $2!!!!
Whoo hoo!!!!!!

Long, lean, stretchy, lovely!!

And I reeeaaaally wanted a pair of "going out" jeans.

So I decided to DIY some.
Here is the before.


And during.


And the afterrrr!!!!


And of course how I would style it. I think a tiny, little top would look a little...floozi-fied...
But that's just me.

I think these jeans need a slouchy top.


But ahhhmazing shoe porn in the shape of 6 inch stilettos from The Russe. I bought them a while ago so I don't think they're in stores/online anymore.

But they're insane nonetheless.

How'd I make these jeans..??
Easy. Seriously.

Take jeans.
Cut slits into jeans where you see fit.
Wash said jeans and see the frayed goodness emerge.

These jeans were snug on me so I won't be drying them but if you do dry them, the fraying intensifies in the most wonderful way. If I lose a few lbs I might dry 'em...but I like where my booty's at so any weight lost will be accidental.

If my instructions aren't clear enough...lookit here. Or heeere.

Go forth and make sassy jeans!!!
