I had just about the most amazing weekend. I spent Friday night with the family, and caught up a whole bunch with my mom. Saturday night, I actually had my first few drinks at college, since being here for more than a year. My friend’s 21st birthday party was really great, and super classy, just like she wanted it to be. :) After that, I danced it all off at another party. Fun nights, and fun memories. This morning, I woke up with a very mild hangover, but am super happy and functioning better than a usual rainy Sunday morning. I concocted a weird outfit which is a cross between Blair Waldorf and Britney Spears’s Circus-inspired costumes.
Giving a little bit of attitude, of course. I just got these red shorts in the mail last week and have been waiting forever to wear them.
Kay’s wonderful artistic eye for photography suggested an opening up of my favorite bubble umbrella shot. :)
A view of the back, not as awesome as the front, I’d say.
And a close up, a la Anthropologie spread (September 2009) without the guy.
clear bubble umbrella [target – $17], white ruffle s/s blouse [5-7-9 – $3.50], black pinstripe suspender vest [rainbow – $11], red shorts [wetseal – $5], black burnout floral lace tights [urban outfitters – $5], black faux suede ankle boots [mandee – $12], red/gold heart ring [forever 21 – $4]
Says my coworker in reference to the guy I mentioned in the last post.
The past few days have been an unhappy few, as I’ve realized sometimes stories are just supposed to be 3 pages long. Sometimes, if you try to add a 4th page to it, you end up ruining the beautiful story you had. Thank goodness Jen’s been keeping the blog alive. :)
Nevertheless, here’s an outfit I have yet to muster up the courage to wear outside. I most likely will find something to put over my shoulders, or something to go under the skirt.
I will remember to remove the tag next time, I promise!
gray mesh crossback chain tank [urban outfitters – $5], blue patent belt [rainbow – came with jacket], gray twill button skirt [charlotte russe – $3], silver stilettos [payless – $20], dream dog tag [claire’s/gift from jen]
I promise I’ll be a better blogger and blog more often the next few days. Jen is going to Europe in another few weeks, so someone (me!) has to keep updating to keep you readers reading! She’ll take beautiful pictures for y’all while she’s there, and I will personally hunt her down if she doesn’t. :P
So…I backed out my original plan of visiting my college friends today and instead spent a day in front of this laptop, that is, when I wasn’t taking pictures with my sister. :P Here’s the results:
Let’s ignore the fact that my sister almost shot up my skirt. :P
blue short trench [rainbow – $5], white sheer ruffle blouse [5-7-9 – $3.50], yellow geometric belt [5-7-9 – $5], brown eyelet mini skirt [mandee – $6], silver and pink jeweled necklace [china], orange pumps [payless – $10]
First off, a little congratulations to Jenny for being on weardrobe‘s featured! She’s probably shaking her head in embarrassment as she reads this. We both thought it was funny – marc jacobs cardigan, zara sandals, stolen kimono belt? I again, have work today which means boring clothes, so here’s an outfit from the other day.
brown tortoise sunglasses [forever 21 – $6], silver flower necklace [china], white flower hair clips (worn as an extension of necklace) [mandee – $1.50], blue patent belt [rainbow – came with jacket], green pinstripe vintage dress [mom’s hand-me-downs] , tan buckle heels [payless – $10]
I promise a non-outfit post soon! :)
