Lack of time, Love of fashion.


Amidst the college chaos, I do not know when I can possibly write for fun any more.

It’s the definition of depressing, if we’re being completely honest here.

I really want to keep up with writing about everything fashionable. Not much has changed, I am still sporting trends.. but when 3 papers on average a week are being shoved in my face about nothing pertaining to fashion.. and I am going to bed at approx. 3 am. I just haven’t found the time.

I got out of one of my classes early today, and today is the start of the long weekend so I am taking these precious moments to clue you in.

I left my laptop in my room so I’m at a quick-and-go computer standing station. That’s how much I just need to gush.

I’m wearing pink and green plaid sperry top sider rainboots that are squishing my toes, black skinnies, a lime green polo and a pink blazer. I look like some type of sweet treat just exploded. Sadly I hadn’t had time to put on green eye shadow, but no worries the hot pink lipstick was a must have.

Kate, my purse, compliments the attire flawlessly. I really to captivate attention.

I can’t wait to go home this weekend and not though. I just want to lay around and do nothing. I am bringing my friend Kristina home with me, it’s going to be incredibly fun.  Today, my best friend is also coming to Canisius! Well one of them. I’ve gushed about her before: Rebecca. She’s coming from NAZ for the night and I am thrilled.

Everything is falling into place even when I don’t have time. What is your quick go to fashion look? As crazy as mine? Thats what you get for planning at 3 am.

Eh.

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

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

COMMENTS:

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!!!

QUESTIONS:

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!

CONCERNS:

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.
