Pink money.


Mmm. 🙂

Good afternoon bloggers and blogettes, I’m eating lunch as we “speak”. Today has been hardly as eventful as yesterday, but that’s okay! These white cheese and garlic noodles are perfectly non-eventful and delicious. It looks similar to what is shown below, but don’t expect too much.. I am the girl that messed up easy mac.

Anyways, I’m wearing a pink dress I purchased in Atlanta, with a black and white polka dotted floral belt, black ruche sleeved cardigan and sequin flats.

Haha :). Anyways, I was told by the lady at Fastrac this morning I looked snazzy.. so hopefully thats a good thing! And there was a semi-cute guy at the college that said he liked my dress, so maybe it was a good purchase. I like it.

Sadly, there’s not much on the agenda today, which is completely out of the ordinary. I have no where to show off my dress, I might actually exchange it for athletic shorts and walk on the trail by the canal to burn off some of those noodles. My hours after this week at KMart have been severely cut so I can’t even waste my time online shopping. I have like 100 dollars to my name, and I’m supposed to get used to under 300 for the next 2 weeks? And go to the outlets? And go to the Carousel mall?

That’s a joke.

I supposed I should fill out more scholarships..

For college, not shopping. It’s so hard to get scholarships in fashion for merchandising and now design.

It’s so boring and feels like it’s really for nothing because I’ve heard nothing back.. but if I want these insanely expensive schools I need to try something.  I wish I could raise money showing tours of my wardrobe. It would be a total win-win situation.

How am I expected to save money to have functional and fashionable wardrobe, while saving for college and a vespa?

These summer jobs are going to come in handy, but I can’t even win the lottery because I’m 17…

I need to start planning fun stuff for the summer. Since I’ve done Boston and Atlanta, I really don’t have any big plans. Maybe a concert?

I WANT TO GO TO MALL OF AMERICA.

Always have wanted to.. but something tells me I won’t be getting there via vespa. And even if it gets fabulous gas mileage, I’d spend all of my money getting there instead of living it up when I am there.

If anyone has a spare thousand dollars they’re just looking to get rid of? Let me know.

I can surely take it off your hands.

Xoxo,

Allison

 

All fabulousness must come to an end


Hello preppies ❤
I'm still in foreign territory, but I am officially outside of Savannah. It's been wonderful, so wonderful I'm considering going there for the next 4 years of my life.. But that's such a huge decision I don't know if I want to make it yet. Anyways, today consisted of an early morning INSTRUCTED tour of SCAD. It was lovely, to say the least. They show you the nicest possible parts of the campus, and honestly, the real SCAD probably lies somewhere in between Caroline's description and theirs. The fashion connections the school has are amazing, I was shocked. I could get used to life in such a wonderful place.. But nothing is wonderful and free.
The school is nearly $50,000 per year. I can barely wrap my head around that total. My family doesn't qualify for much federal financial assistance, so I better be a kick ass retail buyer or something to make up for all of this later. I'll be completely honest and say it worries me.. I need a lot of outside scholarships. I also need to lower my level of taste. Easier said than done.
We went into the most adorable shops in Savannah today. The stores where the REAL shopping is done. That REAL shopping comes with a very REAL price tag too. Thousand dollar cocktail dresses capture my attention before anything else… The shops were right around the corner from Jones street. That's where the phrase keeping up with the Joneses came from for crying out loud.
Anyways, were on our way back to Atlanta -and to the outlets-. We had lunch at a darling little cafe before we left and quickly packed up our belongings from the townhouse. I'm going to miss it significantly. Having my own bathroom.. That's a prize in itself.
Thank you for following me through this journey dolls. I remain stuck with my small town budget and high class taste, but I still have you. I hope you feel loved catching up like I am via iPhone. My thumbs must rest now. Check out a few pictures from my trip, I definitely owe you those ❤
Allison
