Plane ride to LaGuardia


Hello fellow preppies,

I am currently aboard  a CRJ700 on my way to Manhattan.  Well, LaGuardia to be exact.  I have high expectations for the concrete jungle where dreams are made of, lets hope they are fulfilled.  Tomorrow is my interview with Coach.  I packed a few options to wear, because it’s really crucial I have a nice professional outfit.  Tonight I am going to a comedy show, so whichever dress I don’t pick for the interview can be used for that.  Sitting near people on their way to Florida and other warm places leaves me disappointed in the weather of New York.  My flight was canceled yesterday due to this disastrous winter.  Don’t the weather gods understand that it’s March?  I am comfy yet fashion forward.  I am wearing my cream steve madden boots I bought last summer, gray ponte pant leggings, a beige oversized sweater, floral scarf, and navy polo hat.  My jewelry is minimal due to the security measures at the airport and my nails are a chipped lavender.  I didn’t have time to put on the banned emerald green that I can only get away with on my days outside Coach.  It’s a shame really.

From the airport I am taking a super shuttle to my apartment.  It’s so weird to say, and know that I am responsible for getting somewhere on my own.  I am meeting my friend Amy there, but I am not sure when he bus gets in.  The Wifi let me down on the airplane, GoGo wasn’t feeling it today.   We’re currently descending, and my ears feel like too balloons with electric razors on them.  Odd description I know.  LIM was closed due to snow today, so it doesn’t look like I will be visiting the school.  FIT is too stone cold to let anyone look around with out an organized tour.  It looks like I will be ordering delivery sushi and organizing a shopping expedition until Amy comes.  Can you imagine relaxing in the city that never sleeps?  That’s an oxymoron.  It’s nice to be away from the quaint town I live in.  I am slowly getting nervous to see giant skyscrapers and complete unfamiliarity though.  It will be exciting!

Dressing casual when you only own dresses and pearls.


Well. That was the most frustrating event of the day, after finding out my mac mail isn’t compatible with my Canisius email. Yes. You read correctly, I am writing this from my new mac :). Overall, I love it. Obviously. But there has been frustration like the email, that frustration? WordPress wouldn’t let me post blogs. I restarted and its fine, but oh my God. I would probably have returned the computer over being forbid to blog. AH. Anyways, the reason I wanted to blog today was because I’m having a tough time packing. ME. With a phenomenal wardrobe. Why? Because HALF OF IT is packed for the move and college. And because where I’m going August 5-9th isn’t exactly calling for a ball gown or anything tremendously fashion forward. It’s Kingdom Bound. The Christian Rock Music Festival held in Darien Lake, NY. It’s huge. Yet, churchy events at a theme park aren’t exactly calling for decked out attire. And I’m opposed to gym shorts when in public surrounding that many possible cute guys. What is a girl to do? I don’t own in between clothes.. I just know I have a pro-life shirt that would probably go over well at such an event. Speaking of clothes though, I do own a bunch of new stuff. And yes, I bought the Mac so you’re probably like how the hell does that work out? ALLISON YOU HAVE NO JOB. But it does. Because I had a gift card and I am impulsive. Psh, I still have $500 for college.. Like that’s gonna last me 😦 But anyways I bought a ton of jewelry; pearl choker, pearl bracelets, rose quartz bracelets, silver bangles, & gold bangles, 2 scarves, a little black dress for the fall (quarter sleeve length and synchs at the waist), a turquoise and black polka dotted top, and jeans. For sixty dollars. I adore Forever 21 for that reason. The even better thing? The clothing all fits. Believe it or not (LOL) I am not your sample size modelesque girl, so this is kind of an accomplishment in itself. I am in between sizes so it’s tough to order online. What is also hard to order online? Shoes. Riding boots to be specific. I have one foot that is an 8.5 and another thats a 9. Like what the heck is a girl to do? Order boots. Impulsively. Duh. And that’s just what I did. I went online to Steve Madden and I found the most adorable boots for the fall :). And they fit too! I’m sooo excited, that I am going to show you them. YES! I can easily show you guys my purchases now that my laptop has a webcam (welcome to the 21st century I know).

Well, I almost had a heart attack. I’m not used to such an interactive touch pad.. I went back a page and practically lost my post.

I hope this isn’t to technologically advanced a computer for yours truly.

Allison

Pink power ranger pajamas and the fashion capital of the world.


When I write a blog, I cant start with a title. My blogs are from my heart, when I rant? I don’t know where I’m going to go with it until I’m done. I don’t know how people do that.

Anyways, to start, I have to say I wore a cute casual outfit today. It was dark slim boot jeans, riding style boots, a white camisole, and a coral and black polka dotted cardigan.

This is the cardigan from papaya, except mine is not blueeee.

Guess where the boots are from? I love this game.

K-mart.

🙂 tehehe. They’re currently on sale for $12 and change, so if you feel the urge to get them in different colors, I understand.

Oh, this is Owen. The only man I need in my life, aka my little brother. He gives fabulous kisses, and has good taste in polos. He learns from the best!

Last night Owen and I were doing homework on my bed.. taking videos on the webcam and eating m&ms I mean, and I was thinking about how next year I won’t have a study buddy.. not one that makes buzzer noises when I say the wrong vocab answers and shares a love for ribbon covered headbands. Yeah, Owens is a smidge effeminate for the average male 2 year old, but Andrew is 14 and perfectly straight, and his favorite pajamas were the pink poweranger ones.

I’m sure he’ll appreciate that being on here.. Oops.

Whatever, speaking of pink.. I changed the format of the blog to pink and pretty!  I did it in honor of my last post, pink money, but I talk about pink enough in all of my posts that I think I’ll just keep it there anyways.

I never ended up applying for scholarships last night. Homework takes over my life… the fact that I’m posting right now is completely against my maintaining a 4.0, but my sanity relies on venting and talking fashion with all of you, so it’ll get done later.  After all, the Kmart clientele doesn’t exactly give me my dose of fashion each day and I work at 5.

I wanted to go to a Masquerade ball tomorrow night, to meet my one true love. It’s totally part of my life plan -sarcasm- but that fell through, I have to work and apparently you don’t wear dresses. Just tacky masks.  I’m working this week more than usual, and I hope it pays off.. because one of my friends asked me to go with her to the city for a day over my high school spring break and I need to shop. That would require missing a day of classes in college, which I haven’t done all semester.. but I need a break.

I wish my professor would make an exception for such incidents involving the fashion capital of the world.

The good news is, my mom might. It’s up to me in the end, if I want to go, she said. I am the one that has to make up the work, and I am the one drilling myself for a perfect 4.0 this semester, on top of last.. so I can choose if I’m going.

I just want to live and breath fashion lately. I have to pinch myself to stay awake during Government and I’m really good in history. I just have to make it until June. Why couldn’t college end in June and high school end in May?

I’m sick of the people from both places, but at least I could focus on what I consider more important if highschool were out of the way.

I suppose that’s what next year is for.. Oh well. I never played by the rules anyways.

Love,

Allison

Don’t play by the rules, successful people think for themselves.
