The Good, The Bad, and the Say What?

The Good-


I really like the color and folding of this dress...even though I doubt that I could ever pull it off.

The Bad-

It reminds me of an ugly-rain poncho that I would have burned a few years ago.


Say What-

Seriously there are no words.

Winter Wonderland

I woke up today and I experienced a feeling of uptmost estaticism, is that a word? Truly I have no idea. For the first time this year snow lay on the ground. I had an awesome outfit picked out for today too. It was a plaid dress with a striped shirt over it, a red sweater over that, gray leggings pulled down over my ankles, and black flats. However the weather outfoxed me. There was no way that I would be able to get around with my just-a-bit-too-big flats and my treacherously(sp?) clumsy body. I almost slipped and fell on my face wearing sneakers because some genius decided to build our school on a hill. Seriously, a bit of dynamite would have totally solved that problem. Just kidding. All the stairs help me to keep my legs in tip top shape for ski season. So my question for all you readers out there is, How do you manage to maintain your individuality and originality in your clothes while still staying toasty warm. Check out one of my new favorite blogs Strawberry Milkshakes. Sorry for no pictures on this post.

Cover Me With Your Lovin'

I am in the search for the perfect coat. It is nearly impossible. They are all either too small, too big, too itchy, too tight, not the right color, etc. Here are some of my favorites.

Sickness

I am very tired...I caught some sickness from my cousins over Thanksgiving and I am feeling absolutely wretched. I have a piercing headache and a queesy (sp) stomach. When I feel sick I usually just watch tv and movies but alas today I had to do homework all day because I have school tomorrow. When I am sick I crawl into the cosiest clothes that I have, often times this consists of gray baggy sweatpants and a ratty old life is good sweatshirt. However, I am in the market for Christmas presents and I realized I could use a new pair of sweats/cosy/sick outfit. These are just a few of my favorites.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

I am tired. But I tore myself away from the sleeping my body craves after my five hour drive to New York to wish you all a very happy thanksgiving. For those of you who are international readers or don't celebrate Thanksgiving with turkey, stuffing, and lasagna(don't ask) I hope you all will still give thanks for that new Prada bag and all of your friends, family, loved ones, and all the materialistic objects that this blog is about. While fashion and style is what adds details and color to life, things are not the most important things in life. On Thanksgiving I like to give thanks for the good life I have been given and all of the opportunities I am able to have. Thanks Mom, Thanks Dad for everything you have sacrificed and done for me. I love you.

Watch Project Runway

Don't forget to watch Project Runway tonight. Cross your fingers that Lauren gets picked up by another designer. I know the season just started but I already think that she is my favorite model. Comment or email me with your favorite designer/model.

Do the Turkey Trot

I will be leaving for Nueva York tomorrow and visiting some colleges on the way back. I for one never plan in advance what I will be wearing for trips and I end up just throwing everything I think I might wear into my bag. i end up wearing only four of the twenty items I bring and a few end up in a black hole never to be found again. However, I will attempt to make a plan of what to wear for Thanksgiving dinner with the family.

Casual but still Classy and Conservative enough for Grandma-


For Those of Us Who Need To Impress Grandma and Still Show Some Individuality-
The Outfit That Will Make You Look Like You Always Dress This Put Together and Fancy-

Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it

Rawr!

Having just finished reading the literary classic The Great Gatsby my Seminar on American Literature teacher assigned us a project. The options for this project were endless and bountiful. Of course, just as any fashion blogger I chose to create a project on flapper fashion. I had so many ideas for what I wanted to do, I hoped to create some clothes resembling flappers and bring them in. Time was against me, just as it is against Gatsby in the book, and I ended up doing a PowerPoint presentation on Fashion, Music, Literature, and Art in the 1920s. After that though, I found everywhere I went I saw clothes resembling some sort of fashion statement of the 1920s. All the outfits I have been creating, drawing, and wearing end up looking like they came out of the 1920s. I almost got my hair cut super short like a flapper would…but I have a round face and my hair stylist refused. Thank god, she did because somehow I doubt I could rock that style right now. Plus, my ears would get cold.
