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 http://www.clearingpreppysname.com instead of .wordpress.com.  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! 🙂

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

 

My father says he feels bad for the man I’m going to marry.


Hello darling preps ❤
I hope you had a better day than I did! But I was over due for an "eh" day after such a wonderful week last week, so I'm accepting of my ying and yang concept here. Anyways, I wore the cutest dress today. It was covered in red and pink rose buds. Simply adore. I wore my pearls again, but resisted those tempting heels. My feet had to rest. I am tired right now, but unfocused. I want another spring break, I'd love you forever if you'd give me one.
My hair is growing on me (hahahahahahaha play on words, get it?) a little bit. I still am going to call tomorrow to see if they can improve it for the hefty price tag but I like the blonde. It looks a lot better than some of the changed hair colors I've seen lately.. Oh dear. It does look a bit like a box of dye threw up on their head, but I'm not judging.
Going to Boston Friday! I cannot wait to meet people! I'm not sure what to wear.. My parents gave me this whole speech about how the way I dress can be intimidating -which they just need to get over- and that doesn't typically concern me, but you only get first impressions once and I want to look fabulous yet not trying to hard when I go to Lasell. Any suggestions? I have a bunch of new clothes… But if I wear anymore of this cheap jewelry I bought I'm going to blow up into a giant ball of hives. Being allergic to nickel is a curse. I have high taste in metals because I physically can't stand others (or I break out) and I think that transfers into my whole champagne taste beer budget mentality.
Whatever. Maybe I'll marry a rich guy which gold jewelry and Ralph Lauren cufflinks. I could live with that.. My dad told me he feels terrible for the guy I marry one day.

Personally?

I just think he'll be one damn lucky man.

Xoxo,
Allison
