It’s getting chilly here…

…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. ;)

These are a Few of my Favorite Things

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?
023this 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!
029030shown 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

(jacket pacsun, shirt wet seal, skirt wet seal, belt wet seal, tights forever 21, shoes blowfish, necklace forever 21)

Greetings from Europe! (pt.10)

I just had my first midterm of the semester and I’m so glad it’s over. Accounting is absolutely no fun whatsoever (at least to me). Let’s continue on with my europe pictures (they’re neverending?!):

Day 9: Prague, Czech RepublicPrague 041once again, keeping my outfit simple. (who wants to travel and run around with heels and massive amounts of jewelry?) ;) I love these shorts to death, so basic/casual yet it adds a little bit of classy to every outfit. i’m standing on the gorgeous charles’ bridge and you can see the prague castle behind me in the distance.
Prague 063i’m for sale :) thought that was funny…sorta.
Prague 162
Prague 081isn’t the scenery gorgeous? it’s my view from the grounds of prague castle.  well enough of that, i’m off to my human ecology class then dinner with a huge group of people from my dorm. :)

A Little Bit Bold, and A Little Bit Lacy

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.

CIMG3281Giving 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.
CIMG3292Kay’s wonderful artistic eye for photography suggested an opening up of my favorite bubble umbrella shot. :)
CIMG3293A view of the back, not as awesome as the front, I’d say.

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]

Girls Night Out!

So, I’ve been a total lamebutt and dying to post an actual fashion post instead of a…this is my life, and this just happened to be the outfit I wore that day kind of post (see previous post). :P
Tonight, I went with couple of the girls in my dorm for dinner, frozen yogurt, and of course, some shopping!  We did a mini Secret Santa for each other…and got each other little gifts under $10 within the two hours we spent shopping.  There was some speed shopping involved. ;)
I ended up buying a beige/white piped boyfriend cardigan from New York & Company for myself, and burnt red braided flipflops from Urban Outfitters for my friend Kelle.  From my friend (though most of you recognize her as my college photographer) Kay, I received this Christmas plaid s/s open cardigan from Urban Outfitters.  I swear it’s pretty unique. :)  Nevertheless, some pictures from today!  Pictures that were taken to be actual fashion shots! :D

CIMG3271I tried to get some cool jumping shots for y’all…but I’m sort of a fail at those.  Next time, I promise, the trampoline will do the trick. :)

CIMG3274And with some of my favorite girls – Kay (first time the photographer’s in photos!), Kelle, Me, and Laura.

white rib tank [wetseal – $4], yellow crochet tunic (worn as dress/jumper) [mandee – $7], siena braided belt [mom’s hand-me-downs], magenta long summer scarf [ny&company – $6], orange quilted chain purse [target – $6], gold woven sandals [payless – $13]

Dear Clothes…

You are so much more than just a piece of fabric that I choose to keep me decent and warm everyday.  This weekend, I learned that you pretty much make me who I am.  One day, I’ll reject you, but the next, you might just be the one I’m looking for.  That’s the weird kind of relationship we have.  It’s sad to say that you’ve taken up such a big part of my life, but with all the money, thought, and selection I’ve gone through with you – it’s fair to say that you’re one of the most important things to me.  You’re my second skin – rip you away from me, and I’d be better off half dead.

In the past few days, I realized how stingy I can be with my clothes.  Now, I’m the type of person that’ll share pretty much anything with anyone, especially my close friends.  When my suitemate asked to borrow some stuff for a party, I, of course, initially had no issues lending it to her.  But as I thought about it more and more, I just felt so much less of an individual.  My wardrobe is me…bits and pieces of me.  Each item has memor(ies) associated with it, and when seen on another person, it no longer feels as if I own them.  Perhaps I’m completely overreacting, but any of you fashionistas out there feel the same way?

But, I got it all solved.  I tried to come off as not bitchy as possible, and of course, her being the understanding friend she is, took it all rather well.  I’m glad we’re able to have this kind of friendship.  Now, for some pieces of “individuality” (although I admit, not too much thought went into this outfit), here’s some pictures for y’all.

brown boyfriend cardigan [mandee – $9], cream embroidered tank [wetseal – $5], brown braided belt [wetseal – $7.50], olive green corduroy shorts [walmart – $5], brown hemp charm necklace [claire’s – $1], hunter green mary jane heels [payless – $10]

P.S.  Jen’ll probably kill me for posting this…but here’s a fun fact on the topic of individuality.  Back in 8th grade, she had started sketching her own (short-lived) fashion line by the name of individuality. :)

New Photographer!

Dear Readers,

Sorry I’ve been so incredibly lame on updating.  With the transition back into college, school work, meeting new people – there just hasn’t been time to find someone to take pictures for me.  But none of that anymore!  One of my “tower neighbors” (because we’re the only suite on the 5th floor, therefore our only neighbors live below us), Kay, offered to take pictures for me!  She is just the sweetest girl ever, and shares my love for fashion! :)  Oh, not to mention that she has great photography skills too – of course, my sister Dora isn’t too bad either for her age. :D

Nevertheless, I present to you a long overdue outfit post.  I promise more of these, more frequently in the future.  Meanwhile, Jen’s Europe pictures look amazing, don’t they?  I’m still incredibly jealous she was touring beautiful cities while I was cracking down on work. :P

CIMG3202I look a bit silly in the face, but oh well. :)

CIMG3203My favorite picture that she took.

white bolero [wet seal – $3], yellow tank [delia*s/gift from jen], black origami pencil skirt [charlotte russe – $8], navy & white floral scarf [china], black patent peep toe slingbacks [kmart – $12], blue snakeskin mini tote [express/gift]
