Hey everyone! I'm sorry I haven't been able to post all week, I have had an English Essay/Project due and have had no time and I'm completely exhausted. I've come this close to Friday, though! Can't wait for the weekend at my friend's lake house!!!
Oh, and this "Lace and Satin Jacket" has made it's debut in Forever 21 stores for the Mother's day collection! The bold shoulders are so amazing, so sorry Mom, I love you, but I'd be keeping this baby for myself (Not really your style anyway :)!

My Love of A Feminine Skirt...

Lately, I've been wearing all of my voluminous skirts from Forever 21. This one, which came with the belt, is so feminine, yet it has an edge because of the black and red plaid print. I'm in love with the lace overlay as well, it adds a layer, which I am always for. The blouse is thrifted and my sister actually wore it as part of her Pirate Halloween costume, but I guess in a way I reinvented it in this ensemble and in my wardrobe. The collar ruffle detail is stunning, and extremely me! (Sorry for the lousy hair today, it's a weekend so I, and my hair, needed a break).
Working on the blog layout right now. It might keep changing around a bit, but I hope you all like it!
Not much to say today, have to work on my poetry project on Maya Angelou, wish me luck :)
Thanks as always for all of the lovely comments!

Flying Purple People Eater...

Wow, I wore a ton of purple, but oh well I guess it's the color of my day. It was extremely windy out today, so I piled on the layers! I really like my necklace today, it's from the Goodwill and its gold! I think gold is the best for any jewelery. It's bold and looks more classic and antiquey (Ok, I know that's not a word but you get the point)! The skirt is polka-dotted and so young, perfect for a 14 year old like me! Of course I raided my mom's closet again. Have you ever noticed that someone elses clothes look so much more appealing than your own? That happens to me way to much. I promised myself that for the next few posts the clothes I wear are going to be strictly from my closet. This isn't my favorite outfit looking back at the photos, but I might as well post it.
Quick story! The song from the title of my post is one from my dance recital back when I actually took lessons. I know realize how uncoordinated I am....anyways I also danced to a song called "Clean Your Room Blues" in the next number I did with my class. The cowgirl skirt I wore as my costume was a little loose on me and my mom asked if I should pin it, but of course naive as I am I refuted her suggestion. Well that day will go down as the most embarrassing moment of my life thus far....I went on stage, and my skirt fell down!
Thanks to everyone following and commenting on my blog and on my chictopia! :)

Loving how the khakis turned out with this. It kinda looks effortlessly chic or something. Not usually into pants but what the heck?!?!?!?!?? I was on vacation with my cousin and I was dying for a leather vest and Voila! My aunt took my literally EVERYWHERE until we found this one and I am extremely thankful! The hat is also from my trip to NYC last year with my drama club. My bff and I got fedoras and walked around like little girls would thinking they look so "cool"! Haha! The purse was only about $5 at Icing! It's always so afordable there and the accessories are radically versatile!

Not much else to say...anyways thanks to everyone as always!

Print Play!!!

Quick Post Alert! I decided to play with a few very different prints with common cohesive colors. I quite like how it turned out as a matter of fact. I threw on my dads work shirt under my Thrifted Ralph Lauren Child's Size Dress which I got for Easter after I picked it out a few weeks prior. The scarf was picked up at the local thrift store for our school play "Aladdin". It has officially been added to my closet! The shoes, also thrifted, are Calico and I am in love with the gold accents and bold color! Chic and simplistic.
I have been in love with nautical colors lately. Navy and Red are just soul mates! I really want a Red and Navy fitted striped blazer-keeping my eyes out next time I actually have money to spend...
Thanks to all who come across and read my blog!Love!

Scully's Exploration

For chictopia, I did a "The Chic And The Fuzzy" contest entry, starring my princess Scully (yah, I know, he is a guy princess)! I thought I might as well post it on my blog as well. It was his first time that he was actually allowed to come outside, and he was a complete and utter scaredy cat (pun intended)! I love my baby nonetheless! I matched my outfit to go with the sort of vibe I was looking for to portray Scully's personality! Because he is pampered and spoiled, I wore this completely feminine, self-indulgent dress with an over-sized sweater to tone it down a bit. The sweater gives it a cozy feel, which reminded me of cuddling with my baby. Our story and entry is on my chictopia! Feel free to comment!
I got the necklace from a garage sale when I went out to stay with my Grandma and Aunt for a week last summer. The elderly lady from whom I purchased it must be one chic woman, because all of her jewels were incredibly classy!

Oh Yellow, my Yellow!

This dress is so vibrant! The day was all dull and melancholy that I spent the day wearing pajamas, and I currently am still wearing pajamas. I know, I'm a lazy bum. I put this on for photos and love the mixture of the different elements! I think it makes it a bit more urban- with my own classic spin on things! I got the scarf when I went to NYC last year from a vendor. Me and my friends went with our drama club and had a blast! It never gets old riding the ferris wheel in Toys 'R Us!
Thanks everyone who follow me! I am truley grateful!

Well, I wore shorts to school today, and soon to my dismay I realized that was a wrong move because it was extremely windy at my school due to its hilly location. So, I came home and bundled up but wanted to keep the spring feel alive. I put on this Express Marshall's dress with fuschia flowers to add that sort of sensation. Got the coat for Christmas for only about $5 at Forever 21! Steel or what?!? Love the oversized sequins on my H&M cap as well! Anyways, I am swamped with homework tonight, go figure, so I can't write much.
Thanks to all that view my blog!!!!!!!!!!!

I Wish I Was A Youth In Paris....

I really wish I was in Paris right now, or atleast not in my town. Anyways, I paired my top with different bottoms and am still on the fence on which I admire most. The jeans outfit is casual, but the skirt ensemble is just plain old fun! I had fun with it, thats what fashion is-or atleast should be! I stole my mom's shirt....but what else is new?????
Help me on which you prefer, need some advice!
