-Laila Rowe aviators
-Gap blue & white striped shirt
-Kohls' necklace & belt
-Cheap Monday skinnies
-Chocolate Uggs ; (It might've been too early in the season to break these out, but I was just dying for a chance to warm my feet with them!)
At the mall today I picked up some goodies including Chanel mascara, a rust-colored (or "curry"-colored, according to my mother) knit tunic, and a knit floppy hat from H&M. I was a bit disappointed with my mascara results, especially after my mom told me my eyelashes didn't look much different than when I use my cheapy Maybelline mascara. Oh well.

- Dairy Queen's cotton candy blizzards; Everyone else thinks they're too sweet, but they satisfy my sweet tooth in a way no other ice cream can.
- America's Next Top Model reruns; Seriously, are they either on VH1 or MTV every day? I think I've seen every episode of each season at least three times, yet, I continue to watch. (ATNM Fact: They film "____" Next Top Model in over 180 countries!)
- Nickelback's "Rockstar"; This is such a catchy song that I always find myself belting out the lyrics to in my car rides.
- T.J. Maxx; I found the coolest plaster-cast peace sign there the other day. (And the most hideous Salvatore Ferragamo shoes--at $299.99, though, they didn't seem like much of a bargain to me.)
- Procrastinating; Not a good thing now that college application season is right around the corner...

P.S. If you haven't already, check out these Girls Gone Styled videos via Fashionista. They're so fun to watch!

Another positive? No school tomorrow! Thank you, Rosh Hashana. It will be spent sleeping in, relaxing, and working on my portfolio.
Have a good night everyone, and to everyone who may be Jewish, have a good holiday!
P.S. Check out the previous post; I've finally been able to post that picture!

Ever since then, I have used Sunday mornings as my excuse to try out new (appropriate) trends before wearing them out (if they are a little bit dressier) or to school. I love the challenge I give myself to mix pieces together in ways previously unimaginable. I may get a few strange glances from elderly members of the church who are a bit more conservative about their Sunday looks, but it's my small way to have fun and be different from the rest.
Here's what I wore:
Blue, green, and purple plaid H&M jumper
Navy 3/4 sleeve Gap zippy
(barely visible) gray-stripped tee
Purple American Apparel leggings
Gray, bow-tipped flats
Does anyone else do something similar to this? Use a common place they go as their advantage to dress up in new ways? It's fun! If you haven't tried it, thing about your outfit a little more before going to: the grocery store, out shopping, the library, a park, a bookstore...anywhere, really!

I'm really dying by the lack of updating websites have been doing. I want to see some runway shots! I was interested by this post regarding the BCBG show. Selita Ebanks, being the celebrity she is, sat and watched whilst texting the magazine via Blackberry. Some interesting texts about the show? "Orange matte lipstick", "marigold organza dress worn with a belt", and "floaty transparent pieces". I'm absolutely dying to see some pictures, here!
Some more runway shows I can't wait to see coverage on:
Thursday: Miss Sixty
Friday:Vera Wang, Behnaz Sarafpour, Thakoon, Proenza Schouler
Saturday: Lacoste, Y-3
Sunday:Derek Lam, Diana Von Furstenberg, 3.1 Phillip Lim
Monday: Carolina Herrera, Nanette Lepore, Anna Sui, Marc Jacobs
Tuesday: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Betsey Johnson, Tory Burch
Wednesday: Donna Karan
Besides obsessing over how glamorous fashion week is, I've been back at high school as a senior. My classes this year are definitely challenging, but I am doing an independent study in environmental science that I am especially excited to start-- more on that later though.
