DRESSed in Denim

I'd been searching for the perfect denim dress for a long time. You'd think I'd say this is it, but no, not quite. It's a bit short and bulky, particularly at the sleeves. Cute...yes. But then again, what is?

Splurge Alert $$$ and Fashion Find $: Two Pairs of Michael Kors Shoes

I recently hit up DSW and scored two pairs of Michael Kors shoes that I am absolutely in love with.

Priced at $120, these gray suede heels were a bit of a splurge for me as I am not working at the moment. But I love them so much I don't even feel guilty for buying them!

These brown leather heels were a real bargain. They were originally priced at $109. What did I pay? $32! I made use of them in the city on Friday, and they proved themselves extremely comfortable.

Sweets for the Soul

I've been sick lately, which the recent lack of posts may be attributed to. I figured a sugar rush would perk me up, so I decided to make cupcakes! One would think to rest up while sick, but I did just the opposite, making sure not to shirk any responsibilities(like going to school), and even taking on more projects that I normally do. Somehow, it worked for me; I'm feeling better!:)

Little Shopaholic

The title is named as it is because when I first heard the song “Little Shop of Horrors”, from the musical of the same name, I heard “Little Shopaholic”. I guess it’s the actual shopaholic in me, but that’s what I heard when I first heard this song as a kid, and for years since then, that’s what I sang when I sang what little I knew (or thought I knew) of that song.

Anyway, here are the bags from the fall shopping I’ve done in the past month or so. I find it curious that looking at these bags, one really can’t tell the style of the person to whom the bags belong.

The bags are from the following stores: Urban Outfitters, H & M, Target, Victoria’s Secret, American Apparel, DSW, Nordstrom, American Eagle, Forever 21, and a dance store located in New Jersey.

Not a Night Out

I bought this dress because it was hot, the perfect nightlife outfit, and an inexpensive one at that. After buying it, I told my boyfriend we had to go someplace fancy in which I could wear it, and, chuckling, he agreed. Yesterday, he broke up with me. After a year of dating, the breakup was unexpected, on my part. But we do plan on remaining friends. Anyway, I’m left with nowhere to wear this dress; I’m not exactly a party girl. So rather than wearing it out, I wore it in my house to take a few shots. I have yet to decide whether or not to return this.

Two Weeks After Giving My Two Weeks (Notice)

Today was my final day working as a cashier at a supermarket. It was my first job, and I held it for four months. I know I will soon miss receiving a paycheck. And soon after that, I may consider applying for another job. So this ensemble was to be ideal for a job interview. But I think if a skirt is worn for a job interview, it should fall past the knees, so really this is more the kind of outfit that should be worn at a job AFTER landing it, hehe. It produces a professional, yet striking, impression.

London Fashion Week: Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010 Collection

After nearly a decade, Burberry returned to London Fashion Week (after having shows in Milan instead), and did not disappoint. The soft colors, belted waists, twisting and draping of chiffon, and iconic Burberry trench coats (in an updated, thigh skimming fashion), all took my breath away.

Season Transition: Summer '09 to Fall '09

Autumn has officially arrived! Goodbye to tank tops and hello to sweaters! This outfit keeps me warm but isn't bulky. And these colors truly epitomize the season. Simply put, this is my ideal fall outfit.

This last photo is very "school picture day". As I'm a college student, I no longer have a picture day, but this is around the time that picture days are held for those in high school and below.

Styled Like a Schoolgirl

I've never attended a school that required the wearing of school uniforms. If I had, I'm sure I would've been a bit rebellious in following that rule, as I highly value expressing myself, through personal style and otherwise. Anyway, here is my take on the schoolgirl look.

Top: Forever 21
Skirt: American Eagle
Socks: H & M

Reminiscing those Summer Days

To piggyback off yesterday's post, here are some of my beach shots from the summer.

These are photos from a four day beach trip I took with my boyfriend in Wildwood, NJ back in August.

My boyfriend thought these balls weren't attached to the ground. Please take a moment to make fun:)

Trekking to the beach.

Sand castle? More like a sand ancient temple!

Jellyfish on a boogie board.

Polish Water Ice. One word: yum!

And the photos below are of a short, one day beach trip taken with my boyfriend in Long Branch, NJ today. The last beach trip of most likely the entire year:(

The waves weren't as fierce as they were at the previous beach, but they were better than none at all.

A seagull pecking into someone's plastic bag, presumably filled with food or garbage. Priceless.

Seagull rock.

Seashells I collected! I'm thinking of using these for a project or two, and if so, I'll definitely post the final products of them!

An interesting seashell sculpture we stumbled upon.
