Sunday, Funday

 Racks, on racks, on racks of vintage clothes.
 A beautiful Sari that (sadly) was not for sale.
 What's this? More vintage? 
 Finally you guys get a glimpse of my bike, Tyrelle. 
Sweater: Thrifted; Shoes: Steve madden; Shors/Purse: f21
             The Davis flea market was set up again his past Sunday and even though I had three midterms on Monday (yes, I wanted to die multiple times the night before) I made time to stop by. As fate would have it, I managed to find three wonderful things! One goody for each horrible test. Anyway, I got a vintage striped blazer and a Cosby sweater for $6 total. Say whaaaat? Good deal, right? Well then I also got a blue crystal shot glass. Purely for decoration, of course. ;) Now that midterms are over (for now) I'm looking forward to a trip to the Vacaville Outlets this Sunday, going out Friday, and then the Drake concert on Wednesday. I've got a busy week ahead of me, which just means I'll have all the more reason to look fabulous.

Nothing But Business

Top: F21; Pants: Target; Shoes: Converse; Jacket: Borrowed; iPhone Case: Etsy
             Two things that a girl-on-the-go needs? Coffee and her phone. After a restful three-day weekend  in which I lounged around in yoga pants, read a book, and slept, it's finally time to step back into the real world. What better way to do that than with a venti coffee from Starbucks and a new iPhone and iPhone case? I must say, this outfit is one of my favorites simply because of the element of fun that the converse bring. It's like a mullet! Business on the top, party on the bottom. 
**Note: I do not and will not condone the use of a mullet. Ever. Seriously, those things should stay in the 80s.

Rugged Road

Jacket, Boots: Borrowed; Dress, Tights: F21; Socks: U.O.
              Happy Friday, folks! It's a three day weekend this weekend here at UCD so I'll be spending my time soaking up the sun, reading the last of the Inheritance series, and hanging out with friends. Before my bestie Lauren went home for the mid-quarter break we took these photos near the cow pastures behind our dorms; I definitely felt rugged wearing this thrifted Army Jacket over my lace dress.

Brights and Bows

Sweater: Thrifted; Dress: Urban Outfitters; Shoes: Steve Madden
              I may have been M.I.A. for a while, but I'm back-- with new installments to my closet! This lovely slip-dress just came in from U.O. and I am absolutely in love with it. I have become obsessed with fish-tail hemlines and the bright color of this particular one....well, I mean c'mon. I just couldn't pass it up. Also, I hope you all like this bow-hairstyle! I tried it out over the weekend and personally, I think it's darling. Such a fun look!

NYFW 2012

Photos courtesy of Alice + Olivia tumblr.
              It's that time of year again! New York Fashion week is well under way and so far, one of my favorite shows has been Alice + Olivia. Though I am not in New York for this wonderful event (I am a college kid, after all) I have been keeping tabs on the goings-on via the blogosphere and good ole' Google. I absolutely love the black vs. white theme with these particular dresses. The leather gown (bottom left) is to die for. Seriously! I would love to see a young starlet wear that to the Oscars this year. Perhaps Selena Gomez or Haley Steinfeld?

Leopard and Lace

Earrings, Blouse: Vintage; Pants: Urban Outfitters; Shoes: Steve Madden; Bracelet: F21
               Item One of my Urban Outfitters order? Burgundy cigarette pants. These things are literally the comfiest jeans that I own. You can't see here, but they're actually high-rise! Just add another check to my  'hipster' list guys, pretty soon clothes in general will be too mainstream for me ;) This week has been wonderful so far; I received two shipments of clothes, another is on the way, and I also ordered a new iPhone! I hope all of you are doing just as lovely.

Walk The Line

Sweater: Thrifted; Scarf: Gifted; Jeans: Kohls; Shoes: Target
               The first shipment of my newly purchased goodies has arrived! Anyone that knows me, knows that I have a shoe obsession. These lovelies are my newest addition to the collection and I couldn't be happier! They are unbelievably comfortable, and when I put them on, I feel like I'm about to go climb a mountain. In fact, I might just do that...

Bow Ties

Top, Pants, Socks, Bracelet: F21; Boots: Target; Rings: Vintage
             Bow ties are a thing of beauty. On a man, they're simply dapper; on a woman they can be the extra 'oomph' to any outfit. I used the satin belt to a pair of trousers I own as a make-shift bow tie and I rather quite like it! I'm also digging my tangerine and fuchsia nails (these two happen to be my favorite color combo at the moment!).
