+ American Apparel Cotton Spandex Jersey Bra Bodysuit + Vintage Marks & Spencer Tartan Midi Skirt (Similar 1, Similar 2, Similar 3) +
It’s finals week! Ahhh! So close to being done but not quite there yet. It’s been a while so I thought I’d get a post out to you guys.
I’ve had this skirt for 4 or 5 years and have never worn it! My mom bought this kilt in England back in the 70s from Marks & Spencer and I guess I’ve inherited it. It’s my favorite tartan combo..blue and green. I was going to pair it with a muscle tank and combat boots but I hosted a school event that night and opted for dressy instead.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday treated me well so expect some haul videos after my stuff makes it out to me!
Also, How have you all been?!? I feel like I’m so out of the blogging loop.

Here are my entries for Miista’s A/W ’13 ‘Midnight Waters’ competition in conjunction with Solestruck. We had to make a mood board based on the theme and it had to include at least one shoe. I chose the Amaya perspex heel boot in potpourri. I decided to step it up to the next level and make some videos, which took a couple of days to record and made me lose lots of sleep because of homework. (I think I’m running on under 20 hours for the past 4 days.)
I promise you all that I have not forgotten about the blog! If you’ve been a follower for a while, you’ve probably noticed that this is the time posting slows down for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, it’s getting cold outside! Brrrr! My tripod is almost unbearably cold to touch when its outside, haha. Not enough to deter me from posting though, but certainly discouraging especially when considering the second factor: finals! It’s time for me to buckle down and get on my work! I’ll be posting an outfit or two next week for sure since I’m going home. Can’t wait to be in the sun! I want to go straight to Lincoln Road and get lunch, omg.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy my entries as they were a whole lot of fun to make. Follow me on Instagram to see more of my occasional creations…illustrations, videos, and pretty photos of new clothes that I get in! (Like this one of my new Miista Siri pumps!)

Boy, has it been a long past couple of weeks for me. I’m the type of person who usually maintains a sunny disposition on everything, not at all in an “ignorance is bliss” perspective but more in the manner of, well, lots of things (you never know if your smile can change someone’s day, it’s not worth being upset when you might as well spend the time being happy, projecting love reciprocates love, etc, etc). I’ve been pretty bummed out lately and I’ve sadly been filling the void with online shopping (hahaha, retail therapy is such a thing in my book) but I’m working back to feeling like myself.
H&M generously sent over this scarf from the Isabel Marant pour H&M line that comes out today! My plans were to skip my morning class and head to Boston to get in on the action but my school schedule is seriously winning in our constant love/hate battle. Anyway, if you know me, you know that I absolutely am not into wearing scarfs…I feel like they just get in the way! Haha. So I found a way to wear this scarf as not a scarf and I must say, I’m in love with my new cape, hehe. It’s super high quality and keeps me warm even as not a scarf!
The collection boasts so many well-tailored, quality pieces at a great price point. I recently read somewhere that Isabel wasn’t sure she wanted to do the collab, and didn’t know what she wanted to do, but when the ideas came to her she realized it was a way to thank her fans for loving her. So sweet. Prime example of projecting love, and then getting it back in return. Her love of her craft gets her love from people like us, and then our love gets awesome affordable collabs! Haha.
Only two photos because sometimes less is more, right? Sometimes I have to remind myself that even though its 30 degrees outside, outfit posts seriously take only 30 minutes minimum which is like nothing.
