” The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.” – Coco Chanel
So I’m a bad person, I haven’t updated in four months and I have a half done fashion week review thats been waiting to be finished much longer than that. But before I finish it I feel like I should inform all of you lovelies what I have been doing, because I’m just so interesting.
First it was spring break and I set sail on a 7 day cruise with my best friend, Nina. I was gone for a total of 10 days all without my parents and let me tell you it was bliss. What does this have to do with fashion you ask? Well obviously not a lot seeing as it was a cruise and there wasn’t much clothes wearing going on. However when we went in we went hard. With the amount of dresses Nina and I packed we could have been going on a 7 day ball. Of course there were more than just dresses, skirts were involved along with an array of tank-tops in different cuts, patterns and colors. We had the most extensive wardrobes on the ship to say the least, luckily the closets were large.
Then, 3 days after arriving home from my journey, my family and I took a whirlwind, long weekend trip to Maryland for my cousins Bar Mitzvah. It was filled with fabulous outfits, wild children and tons of family. Unfortunately, I didn’t get anything new to wear to the service and ended up wearing a favorite of mine, a mismatch-y strapless number from Urban Outfitters. Fortunately, I did get a new outfit for the party, which was at Dave & Busters, so nothing fancy just a tunic like shirt, from Urban, of course, and a pair of black leggings. And incase you were concerned I, unlike my sister, did not travel in sweatpants. Instead I opted for a long sleeve, empire-waisted, grey, thigh-length, t-shirt dress from Forever 21 with a lacy, off white vest from Hollister paired with floral lace up sandals and or course a statement necklae and flower adorned headband.
Then there were finals, but we don’t need to re-live that misery. Finally the last day of school came and I wore a purple floral, tiered, halter style dress from American Eagle. Next there was cheer camp, 5 days of cheering, chanting, stunting and matching outfits. Of course the bus did break down on the highway and we waited at a local mall., unfortunately the stores were closed so no shopping there. That following week I began a Physics summer course so I won’t have to take it next year. Now these 3 weeks were not my proudest, they were filled with sweatpants, t-shirts and nike shorts. It was not a good thing, and of course there was the dying of the hair. Yes, you read correctly, I have a purple chunk and to be honest I kinda love it. I feel pretty bad-ass in a cute, girly way and because my hair’s dark-ish brown and I didn’t bleach before dying it’s not super noticeable. The fashion point of all this? It makes a great statement with every outfit and gives me a great excuse to tie in seemingly random purple accessories. Next was 3 weeks of drivers-ed (eventful summer, right?) aka 3 weeks of nothingness, I’m working on re-decorating my sisters room while she’s out of town so the most eventful fashion moment was buying a shirt to go with those floral leggings I bought forever ago, it’s from Urban, of course, and blue with floral detailing along the neckline.
I’ve also spent much of the past 3 weeks watching the entire Sex and the City series multiple time, along with the first movie which I’ve seen about 400 times. I’m officially a Carrie, she’s what I would’ve dressed like if I hadn’t been like 4-10 when it was filmed. Not to mention her personality, and the shoes, oh the shoes, thats a prediction of my future, I will go bankrupt for Manolos. This past week I was at our beach house (which, for the record, is 30 minutes from my actual house…I don’t get it either.) with my parents. My aunt and her boyfriend visited for a long weekend and 3 days ago my cousin got here. We literally went to the beach all day, every day and although I’m tan I have yet to pair it up with some great outfits, other than the jean shorts (jorts), oversized t-shirts and some cute dresses I sometimes call cover-ups the week consisted of. Luckily I’m dry and at home now and said cousin is fast asleep nest to me, which makes sense seeing as it’s 6:30 AM. But I, of course, drank 5, 8oz glasses of iced tea and had 2 caffeine filled Excedrins, so no sleep for me, but it’s lucky for you.
I’m going to the Yankees game tomorrow, I’m a big Yankees girl so I’m super excited. I have my Jeter shirt and hat all ready and we’re going early to try and get autographs, now that’s a fashion forward day. Then 4 days after that my sister comes home, joy.So I’ll be spending that time before hustling to finish her little suprise, luckily my little helper’s here now. The week after that Thomas’ (afore mentioned cousin/not-so-little helper) mom, younger brother (aka my aunt and cousin), her boyfriend and his 2 daughters are coming down. They’re doing Disney, I’ll do one day at Universal, purely for Harry Potter ( which I’ve already done, thank you Physics. I wore a cute outfit, expecially considering it was a theme park.[grayish-blue Urban shirt with exposed zipper down the back with dark washed jorts and an awesome necklace]) and maybe a water park. And then cheer practice will start and the back to school shopping will commence, aka my faveorite part of the school year, besides breaks, which I also use for shopping purposes. I’ll actually update this month, I promise. Probably this week, I hope, maybe. Stay stylish. xoxo.
