it’s finally thanksgiving break! it’s amazing being home and taking a break from college. there’s been way too much drama lately (thanks a lot, boys :P) and too much work. i still have a sore throat but it’s getting better. hopefully i’ll be better by thanksgiving.
these pictures were from an photoshoot expedition that i went on the other day with my friend Monisha. we’re pretty big camera whores (she’s a better poser than i am). it’s always fun having these photoshoots since when we usually see each other we’re sitting in class.

…and chilly, by Houston terms, means about low 60s. Nevertheless, you’ll find natives around here wearing big heavy jackets, prepared for the “winter”. I decided to give this furry hoodie a second chance – I was just about to give it away until I realized that it was one of the few “transition” jackets I had. I was impressed that it managed to go well with some of my more fashionable items of clothing – and the fact that it managed to match my hard to match heels.
hunter green faux fur hoodie [joujou – $17], cream embroidered tank [wet seal – $5], brown beaded necklace [charlotte russe – free], teal woven belt [forever 21 – $3.50], boho print skirt [wet seal – $4], brown tights [target – $6], hunter green mary jane heels [payless – $10]
A close-up of the heels. I had to make my photographer practically lie on the ground to get a pic of these. She’s absolutely wonderful. Also, Kristania of monochromachic has the same pair – be sure to check her out, the girl’s got great style. :)
A closeup of the necklace. It came with a top, so I guess it’s technically free. ;)
Esperanza, as said in my previous post, is the annual fall formal held on campus. This year, I helped plan it! So…I guess it’s fair to say it was a huge deal to me. Unfortunately, I was running around being busy about half the night – so I didn’t get a lot of pictures in. I said to my suitemate, though, I need an outfit picture for my readers! :)
Salmon Chiffon Tiered Dress [Charlotte Russe – $24], Silver Leaf Earrings [Forever 21/Gift from Jen], Silver Stilettos [Payless – $20], Silver Skinny Belt [Forever 21 $2.25]
the title speaks for itself. but besides that little bit of news, the other day the weather was looking peculiarly nice for winter weather so i went on a photo shoot with robin who is an awesome outfit photographer :) i got this new dress from urban and i was dying to wear it for a while. i love photo shoot days; it means i won’t have to take an awkward self-portrait in front of my roommate’s closet curtain.

i’m in love with these mustard tights. it’s hard to match them with an outfit but i love them nevertheless.
i just got back from a weekend retreat this past weekend and it was a ton of fun. i met a lot of awesome people and bonded more with my fellow rutgers people :)

Far too many.
Part of having a fashion blog almost guarantees shopaholicism for me. At the same time, I’m lucky that I own as many clothes as I do because I average about 4 outfits a day. The “going to class” outfit, the “lounging around” outfit, the “hanging out with friends” outfit, and the “hanging out with a certain boy” outfit”. That’s of course, not including the “working out” outfit and the “going to sleep” outfit.
Yesterday I went shopping with my photographer Kay. My Esperanza (fall formal dance on campus) dress finally arrived in the mail (though it needs lots and lots of ironing). Therefore, I found it an opportunity to go and buy a silver belt to match it. Kay and I trekked to XXI with limited time and bought home few things, but of course, wanted a whole bunch.
Here’s the “going shopping” outfit for yesterday:
I couldn’t take too many pictures, as this was downtown Houston – which means lots and lots of strangers from the real world and not the sheltered bubble I’m used to being in.
The earrings I wore are my favorite pair, and I promise a closeup for y’all next time. :)
mustard braided flutter sleeve shirt [charlotte russe – $5], teal braided belt [forever 21 – $3.50], black and white floral button skirt [mom’s hand-me-downs], sky blue crocodile print mini-tote [express/gift], metallic cutout platforms [target – $7]
i just realized…i have two huge loads of laundry washing in the basement and i still have enough clothes in my room to wear a different outfit for at least two months. i really want to donate some to charity but i’m one of those people that can’t bear to part with anything. i still have all my homework assignments from elementary school and middle school stashed in my basement at home! i mean really, when am i going to ever need those ever again, let alone look at them?
this was one of my comfy outfits. the only problem with it, was the excessive amount of wind that day lifting up my flimsy skirt. whoops :P i love these tights that i got a few weeks ago. the color is gorgeous as well as the pattern. Elaine from Clothed Much actually has these tights too!
shown above are some of my all time favorite things: my bird necklace (great memories) and these flats from blowfish. i’m pretty sure these flats are worn out to the point where i need new ones, but i can’t part with them. they’re just too comfy and perfect. <3
