And a Happy Halloween to You

Happy Halloween! Hope everyone has a great night! All my plans got canceled, then changed, then back on, then canceled, and then changed again but I'm looking forward to a fun night of watching movies with Alena (who refuses to update her blog...)

This week has been crazy! I've been so stressed out with school and it doesn't help that almost everyone around me is just as stressed. I've been fighting with my family all week and struggling to balance school work (especially a stressful persuasive speech in AP English) and everything else (trying to make plans with people and finish getting all the costumes ready for my Drama department's plays in three weeks.) Luckily it seems like everything is getting better!

Tomorrow I get to help paint our amazing set and then go to a costume party for my friend's birthday. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

p.s. sorry, I have been so lazy and have not taken any outfit posts, let alone have an outfit worthy of any this week. :(

p.p.s. on the bright side, I've found a few college options that I'm excited about!

The debut of the $6 Dior shirt! Worn with Forever 21 belt and headband, PacSun jeans (my brother got me a discount, surprisingly really comfortable jeans!), Target flats.


Found this great pencil skirt when I got the Dior shirt. Old Navy white tank, Goodwill blue pencil skirt, Forever 21 feather hair clip

Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend and is ready for a great week!

So Basically...

...this has pretty much been one of the greatest weekends ever...

And this only adds to it:
Today I and three other people from my Drama department's Design committee- we're in charge of costumes and props for shows- went on a mission to get costumes for our two upcoming fall plays ("Black Comedy" and "From Whom the Southern Belles Tolles"). After trying two stores which were both closed at that time of the day, we went to Goodwill and hit the jackpot. We got SO many costumes and a few props for about $80.

The greatest part is, I also came back with this amazing treasure, thanks to finding of Michelle and our other friend:
BEST part: It cost me $6 :D

Hope everyone is having a just as amazing weekend!

p.s. Does anyone have any good halloween costume ideas? I'm stuck! I want a creative one, but I can't think of any.

Inspiration Lies in Eye of the Beholder

I hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready to face the week! I keep making inspiration boards on photoshop but they keep coming out really small, even though they seem big when I make them. So sorry if you can't see it.

I will be posting outfit posts soon. I took a few pictures this week, but I'm waiting until I've taken a few more and know that I'll keep it up before I post them. I hope I get to take one tomorrow, but unfortunately I left my camera at a costume party on Friday and my friend is giving it back to me tomorrow. Speaking of costumes, what is everyone planning on being for Halloween? Anyone have any good ideas? Maybe once I get my camera back I might put up a picture or two of costume on friday... ;)

Everyone try and have a fabulous week! I know it all seems so crappy working/school but just stay positive and smile and laugh as much as possible :D

"It's looking VERY McQueen to me.."

yes, yes, yes!! The first thought that ran through my head when I first saw Kenley's wedding dress in last nights Project Runway was "Serously? SERIOUSLY?? Are you TRYING to rip off McQueen?? The judges arent stupid! they called your stuff out ALREADY for looking like dolce & Gabanna AND Victor & Rolf! SERIOUSLY??" And then what is the first think Micheal Kors says about her dress? "It's looking very McQeen to me... VERY McQueen..." To which I shouted at the tv "THANK YOU MICHAEL!!"

Last Nights Epsidode: (spoiler alert) How amazing is Leanne? Her dress was gorgous! it was the only the one that I could imagine a normal everyday bride wearing, while still being modern and stunning. Her bridesmaid dress was great too. Kenley: AT LEAST she did a good job, and it turned out really great, plus her bridesmaid dress was adorable! Korto/Jurell: Korto definitely should have gone! I'm so sad about Jurell!

In other news: I am really excited that the The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art now has an onlin database where you can view all the displays. I was drooling over the stunning creations by designers in their prime such as Coco Chanel, Christian Dior, Jeanne Lanvin, Yves Saint Laurent, etc.

Yves Saint Laurent:
Madame Vionnet:
Madame Gres:
Vivenne Westwood:

Oh to be inspired

I hope everyone has had a good week and is ready to enjoy the weekend! My week was pretty uneventful... I really need to find a way to take pictures of my outfits so that I can start doing outfit posts.

Fashion Week: thoughts? LOVED McQueen, the detail was incredible! Dries Van Noten was so insanely wearable and perfect. I cannot wait for Lanvin, Chloe, and Miu Miu! Oh and was anyone else not surprised that Alessandra Facchinett got the ax? With exception of a few lovely looks, it was unbelievably boring! There is such a ginormous difference between her snore fest and Valentino's last ready-to-wear collection (spring 08) filled with bright, girly cocktail dresses and GOWNS, you know, gowns, one of the many reasons Valentino was so loved? Yeah, I think she missed out on that part.

p.s. if you're a tv junkie like me... we need to talk. Who else is angry that The Office wasn't new this week? AND who else thinks that Serena needs to stop choosing random times to be bitch and stick with one personality? (Gossip Girl)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Boredom. Lack of Inspiration. No one to take a picture of outfits/ a camera that captures me full-length. Because of these reasons- mostly boredom- I did a mini photoshoot a couple of nights ago. I mostly accessorized with hair accessories, but there are a ton more pictures which I may post in the future. Then out of more boredom, I went to and made them look pretty :) *yes that is Voge Britian from May, I tried to find the best cover with a celebrity that I don't hate and this one has the prettiest colors and Natalia Vodianava.

Oh and how cool are those blue lace tights? I actually wore them today, maybe I can get my brother to take a picture...

--will be posting my fashion week thoughts shortly. hope everyone is having a great week!
