Incredible news and deals

Woo! New starts for Clearing Preppy’s Name! YAAAY!  If you’re reading this, I recommend glancing up at the URL and absorbing how fabulous it is to see instead of  A small step for the page, a huge step for fashion preps everywhere!

New steps for Allison too!  Guys, my dress wardrobe just expanded considerably.  I don’t even know where to start.  Today, Momma and I went shopping.  It was rather uneventful, involving stops at Kohls, Target, and a microscopic mall.  Inside that tiny mall was Charlotte Russe though, and I now take back the times I’ve bashed the store.. well a little.

There customer service still sucks, but there dress selection is *muah* magnifique!

I bought 9 dresses for 75 dollars. Let me repeat that: NINE DRESSES FOR SEVENTY FIVE DOLLARS.

..please finish reading this post before you dash to your local CR.  I have more to say!

I combined my student id discount of 10% per item on this fantastic deal.  All the dresses were $6-15 dollars.  I feel ike it’s a steal when I find one for 25…

Below are some of the dresses I bought:

They have open bow cut outs in the back.  Absolutely darling.  I am a sucker for the A-line shape too, it’s so figure flattering.

While I was trying to find some of the other floral dresses I bought online to show you, I found these babies:

FLORAL COMBAT BOOTS! Do you know how long I have been looking for a pair? #idied

Guess Charlotte Russe will be seeing more of me, especially since I get paid tomorrow! 🙂


The side effects of prom hair

Now that I am revived and on a normal sleep schedule, I am back again to blog :). Not much has happened since Sunday night, it’s been great haha! Monday morning I slept until 10, I love saying that. It was so “not productive”. I needed it. I had high school in the afternoon, of course. That was a snooze.. Same people, same place, different work sheet, different chapter. I think the shorter amount of time I’m at school for, the longer it seems. My eyes move to the clock on the wall almost the instant I sit down. Tuesday, Andrew had an eye appointment in Utica. It was at 9 and since Utica has a mall I went along for the trip ;). I had some skirts to return and I had Victoria’s Secret free panty coupons. On the way back, we stopped for lunch. I was so incredibly full as we drove home, I couldn’t possibly function enough to go to school. I mean it’s a bore as it is, but throw in a full stomach and a crazy sleep schedule from 2 nights before? No thank you. Some how some way I convinced my mother that I can make up any work I miss in less than an hour, which is practically true, and she let me stay home. I don’t know why Andrew got to stay too, but I think it was an all or nothing deal. My parents were preoccupied with the new Realtor, they’ve changed the price on our house AGAIN and are insisting we will have a sale in 30 days. I hope they’re right, but I can’t help but feel they’re being completely unrealistic. I don’t know why anyone would want to move here, with the crappy schools and the small town bull. I love our house, that isn’t the issue at all… I just think I would be scared to move to a town where half the houses in it are for sale.

Today I was much more productive than my last 2 days, and it’s already 12 oclock. Ogg (my baby brother) has the nerve to wake me up at 8, and I’ve been going ever since. My mom has been packing stuff in boxes, I made an 8 page list of all the stuff I am going to need for college.. but I just realized I forgot to put an iHome on there so maybe the list will get longer.  I set up my debit card so I can check the amount on it through an app on my phone, I set up a savings account *GASP*, I got myself looking put together and fabulous in my new Ann Taylor patchwork blazer, and even breathed every once in a while. The only thing I wish I could’ve done but didn’t?? Gotten rid of prom hair.

I believe prom hair is a real thing. I’ve washed my hair like 20 times since prom and it won’t go back to it’s original form. I blew it dry, straightened it.. used conditioner, didn’t use conditioner, tried 3 different shampoos, and scrubbed with my fingers. Nothing is working. I cannot get the bottle of hairspray out of my hair. At least I can say that bottle of hairspray was worth it, my hair looked great.. but the aftermath? Is gross! I feel like I can’t get my hair completely clean. This was another reason I was excused from attending highschool yesterday afternoon.

I looked up some ideas online for curing said prom hair and I’ve decided because lemon juice didn’t work last year and I’m out of carbonated water (2 methods) I might need to try Apple Cider Vinegar. *BLAHHH*

Cue the gagging noise.

I hate apple cider vinegar. Just the 3 words next to each other sound repulsive. I can’t be on the 1st floor of the house when my parents decide to clean the coffee maker with it, and I refuse to gargle with vinegar of any type when my throat is sore.. but that’s how bad my hair is. My roots are growing in -already- and I don’t need to draw any more attention to that with additional hair spray and grease. UGHHHH.

If anyone has any brilliant ideas, I may pay the $15 and get a macadamia mask and renewal hair treatment on Saturday.

Pretty soon I’ll have sunk $300 dollars into this head of mine. Smh.


Two more days until the college part of me is on Summer Vacation.

I’ll never ever ever ever do it again.

Okay, maybe.. like if someone dies in my family, or I’m in a coma.. but I’ll really try to never ever ever leave everyone out of the loop from my life again! I can’t go without my blog, I talk about it so much! But I just didn’t blog for like 2 weeks? So what’s happened to me? Hmmmm.


I made that 4.0 possible. I’m not saying I got it, but I’m saying after some major blog deprivation and super studying I am coming back from the 3.9 possibility haha

I’ve become best friends with my roomate and suitemates. I CANNOT wait until college. I got an e-mail about orientation and started getting nerves about the outfit I will wear already.

Besides planning that far in my future I’ve been planning a little closer too. In the next month is FASHION CAMP and after a few bumps in the road, I’ve figured out how I can be compensated for what I deserve (I mean this in the least greedy way possible) and I’ve decided on some project for my little minions to complete! Haha I mean that in the most endearing way :).

Last Saturday I went to a Fashion Show. Herkimer style. It was REALLY good. All this surrounding of fashion.. you would think I would never change my mind about what I want to do with my life/major/college experience.

I thought so too.

But I guess we both thought wrong dolls 😦 Very wrong.

I’m not meant for this! I decided on Canisius, except I thought the whole time I was meant to be on the Retail Buying end of Fashion. And everything is so much clearer now, I’m not!

Who would want to make the girl that failed the Trig Regents a retail buyer? What girl that failed the Trig Regents would WANT to crunch numbers?

GROSS. Not this girl.

So last minute, per usual, I changed my mind. The thing is, it’s for good this time. I am not allowed to change it back again!

I am going to Canisius. But I am highlighting my skills, like writing and talking.

So guess what I’m going for?

I should give you time, maybe a cliff hanger.. but I’m not going to. Because I have ranted in almost 2 weeks and I feel you deserve to know that I am going to be majoring in Communications with a concentration in Advertising and Public Relations.


None of my hard work will go to waste. And I will still make you all proud. After all, preps are known for their stubborness and hard working attitude aren’t they?

Wouldn’t want to dissapoint!
