I am registered for classes! The excitement is real, I couldn’t be happier. I had to take 17 credits which is 9 classes I am getting ready to have no life at school(haha!). I know I signed up fashion drawing, color theory, pattern making, draping, sewing, fashion history, and I forgot what else…… Anyway now I am going to start getting dorm stuff. I am also still trying to find ways to pay for the school (yikes!), which is $66,000 a year. I think it is worth it since it is the top fashion school in the U.S. And third in the world. Definitely proud to say I got into a school like that! Well my boyfriend took me shopping yesterday to congratulate me, we were going to go out to eat but I don’t really need food. I got a beautiful white dress from Express I am going to wear to my going away party and cruise.
Happy Mother’s Day to those great moms that put up with ur brats 24/7!!!! I know my mom put up with my ish for 24 years, she still loves me though. My mom and I didn’t do too much today but we did go to church and spend time and that is what matters most. Without my mom I would be nothing, she has pushed me in every way possible so I could be successful. It worked too with me getting into Parsons. I cried so hard in church today I am still trying to figure out how I deserved that…
Shirt oldnavy, dress papaya, leggings New York & co, shoes Nine West, Kate spade purse, Liz Claiborne brooch, forever21 earrings
So I was trying to figure out what to wear today for church. Knowing my limited options I picked out things that I could fit and were suitable for church. I had this dress hanging up in my toom because it has a mystery stain on it that I wanted to remove. Too much cleavage shows when I wear it so I seen my striped shirt and was like “ah!”(the light bulb in my head went on). Okay put this outfi together went outside it was windy as heck….nobody is trying to see my goods (or are they?). Not having time to change I slipped leggings on and here I am.
I LOVE my mom’s closet. I find so much inspiration from it, she always had great style. She has clothes from the 80s untill now, but alot of the pieces you are still able to wear! From Liz Claiborne dresses (Liz Clairborne back in the day WAS NICE) to jumpsuits, shift dresses my mom has it all. There is a dress I’ve been eyeing for awhile that she bough back in the early 00’s that I didn’t like at first but grew on me. I can say some of my style choices have changed over the years, which I am happy about( being more open-minded). The things I love most about the dress was the style and vibrant colors, it is a beautiful dress.

Morange lipstick by MAC
The yellow really sets off the dress and the orange lipstick compliments the blue. Oh and that purse, my mom was like you can have it *tears of joy*. It is a yellow leather Coach purse and I was waiting for my mom to give it up. I love the color yellow it brings me alot of joy and boost my mood. I really want every color purse and the yellow bag is a great addition to my closet.
Maybe my mom will let me keep this dress…..
It is 12:45 am and let me tell you I had one heck of a day. You know alot of things eventually come to light…don’t think it won’t. So much came out tonight it is not even funny, I really learned alot about people today. When I say that that’s not a good thing either, I am just upset and shocked it even happened. People watch who you hang around with….besides that I went to another Mary Kay party for like the 100th time. I swear Mary Kay consultants are always so happy. Probably because they don’t have ro wake up every morning go to a job they hate and listen to a boss nag all day. I really have thought about being a Mary Kay consultant especially since they can dress up : ).
Mix prints again!!! I’ve thought about pairing these two pieces together for a long time and never did. Glad I decided to wear this outfit today, I received alot of compliments.
I like peasant blouses, they are feminine but are bohemian at the same time. The ruffles on the sleeves of my top make the shirt romantic-like and the print makes it vibrant. I wanted a gypsy look so I paired it with a pair of soft shorts that had a tribal print at the bottom. The shorts are kind of hippie-ish too so it went perfect. You can also wear the top with a pencil or pleated skirt to make it a more modern type of look.
Top new york and company
Shorts and shoes target
I wanted to point out that these pretty flowers bloomed in my neighborhood…..I had to stop and take a pic. Oh and of course sniff them : )
I really need to invest in a good camera…because cell phone photos suck. My post from yesterday I used my mom’s galaxy phone, which has better quality photos than iphone(shake my head). Today though the camera sucked. I am very disappointed in the camera today because my pictures did not come out all that. My outfit is cute though : ), you know I had to put that in.
Old Navy top
You guys remember that skirt I wore for V-day? This is the same skirt but in a pretty pastel hue.
I did a whole outfit today around pastels, lavender, light blue, mint green. A mixture of the three is always a pretty combination.
I will never judge a store again. Let me tell you guys I was never really into cheap stuff. Always believed quality over quantity, you can call me materialistic but I believe into getting expensive things. Now I do have some clothes from forever 21and a couple of other places but not much. Before I continue I want to say I am not coming at anyone who doesnot mind buying cheaper products. That is your decision and your pocket so if that is what you prefer I respect that. Anyway Gabe’s was always a store that I turned my nose up from, but that all changed today. My dad and I went into Gabe’s today, he wanted some new shoes. Well I’m looking around and spot some sparkly shoes….I thought “OH…..who are these made by?!?!?!” I looked at them and surprisingly they were Nine West (but I seen Steve Madden shoes but they didn’t look real……) so I was skeptical about if they real or not. At the same time though I didn’t care because they were so cute, my size, and were on $15. I went right over to my dad smiling he was like “what’s wrong?” Of course I am spoiled and asked if he could buy them and…he did!!!! Gabe’s I swear your a come up.
I also love these shoes because they are similar to a pair I seen at ASOS that I wasn’t able to get.
