14 weeks until I am officially graduated.


Hello preppies. My outfit today, may be a new favorite. Comments? Questions? Concerns?

Let me tell you some of mine. Starting with the head..


UGH. Those are the blonde high lights I impulsively purchased friday. They could be much worse, but it’s taking a lot to adjust to them, when I’m used to my boring brown. She also cut it and it has layers and has been thinned.. I’m not overly happy with it for the hundred dollar price tag I just expect more. I’m debating going back to the salon tuesday and demanding my hair be fixed without paying anything more, because quite honestly? She didn’t even dye the bottom of the bottom of my head and I paid for a full head of highlights. Ahem. I won’t be going back to Sheer Pleasure if this is the way it stays.

Anyways next are my sunglasses! They are so cute. I bought them at rue 21 at the outlets in Georgia for 3 dollars. Totally cute. After that come the GIANT crystal iridescent earrings. I love them, they were from Pinkheart at Altantic Center in Georgia, same as the pearls and dress. If I could bring the store home with me I would. They were ten dollars and I know I will wear them constantly, well worth it. I matched my dress with some emerald and lime green eye shadow blends.

My dress, as I mentioned was from pinkheart. A 40 dollar steal, I love it. It came with the nude slip underneath because it’s kind of sheer. It’s so flattering, I want more peplum collared dresses that are this cut. It’s a Blair Waldorph-esque dress and I love it. Please tell me if you can find any more that are this style online at such a steal because pinkheart doesn’t have a website and that breaks my heart because I don’t live in Georgia or Cali, where they’re located.

My pearls have crystals intermingled between every ten pearls of various sizes. I will wear them constantly, I know it. The 15 dollars was worth it because they definitely dress up this outfit, and anything I pair them with.

No tights! It was 65 today :). Not quite Georgia temps, but acceptable. My shoes.. I can’t remember where they’re from 😦 but the company is nine and co and they have a hefty heel without a platform. Very vintage-esque to complete my outfit. Wait till you see all the other retro styles I have in store for this week :)!!! Happy St. Patrick’s day!!!


Why the hell did I let myself stain that lucious crepe fabric already? At the St. Patrick’s St Joseph’s Church dinner, they didn’t supply cloth napkins that I had adjusted to using over the last 9 days at elegant restaurants and I forgot to cover my lap. Whyyyyyy?!

How will I get it out? The deacon’s wife suggested chalk because it’s an oil stain. I’m scared!


The slip rides up if I am not careful.

The stain is not going to come out, because I haven’t put it in the washer immediately.. and I can’t find chalk.

I don’t know where I’m going to college.

Oh, sorry I know I was supposed to stick to the outfit.. but it’s easier said than done. 14 Weeks until I am officially graduated and I can’t express how excited I am, but where should I place my fashion forward self? Where is best fit for me? I have been gone a full day and I am still mentally on vacay in Savannah, but this coming weekend will I change my mind when I’m back in boston? What if I don’t get the scholarship money? What if neither school is a fit and I am stuck in small town America forever?

Tears just welled up in my eyes. Not even kidding.

WHERE IS MY NEON SIGN!!!!!!?!!?!?!?!!!????


Pssst: Today’s song of the day is Bulletproof by La Roux. It’s been on repeat for the entire day and I can’t seem to become sick of it.

Why do I still feel like I need to cry? I miss Georgia.. I want my spring break back.



I don’t know how, or why I’m awake right now.. oh wait.

Yes, I do. I inhaled dark chocolate at approximately 8 oclock this evening and now at almost 1 in the morning I am paying the toll.

I am wide awake, as if the caffeine just planted itself conveniently next to all of my fashion inspiration in my mind and now I’m just completely focused on this blog.  I keep commenting on other people’s blogs and trying to gain an understanding of what attracts people to a blog, what people write about, and how to keep the flow going, but I think in the end as long as I am satisfied with what I write about that is what matters. Writing a blog is almost like wearing an outfit.  There are certain trends that are obviously in style, and it feels great when people note what you are wearing, but you don’t have to wear those trends to be successful. You may be successful as long as you are confident and happy in the outfit you are wearing.  That being said, I am not your ordinary seventeen year old girl.  Hollister skinny jeans and graphic tees aren’t found in my wardrobe, instead pleated skirts and shoes dipped in glitter have taken their place. I do have a preppy style, but if you looked at my entry about prom dresses, I do prefer a classic statement with slight edge.  I believe that over all, my priority with style is to dress my body type properly.  I do not have a modelesque build, but I am on the taller side.  I am curvaceous with a little more to love in the mid section yet not embarrassed.  I believe that knowing how to dress your body is key in being successful in fashion, whether age seventeen or seventy.  By reading fashion blogs and keeping up to date with fashion magazines, I don’t only expose myself to a variety of trends, but also a variety of styles that may not reflect my own.  If I want to be a successful retail buyer, I must purchase for the mass markets, not necessarily me -although is JCrew or Ralph Lauren were the retailers I worked for I know I would perform phenominally-.  To end this rant, even if I enjoy seeing my multicolored nails fly across the keyboard, I would just like to leave my blogettes (readers) with something from one of my many fictional icons, Blair Waldorph:

So go out into the world, whether its one in the morning or five in the evening.. and make something happen.
