Snow Day- Shop Day!


You know what that means? No work! Since the university closed I didn’t have to go to my office job so I got to be snowed in all day with my boyfriend and his family. Don’t get my wrong there was a lot of shoveling to do and cocoa to be drank.

Since you surely caught up on all of your other work here is some reading to peruse for the rest of the snow day.

This Refinery 29 article about 2011 legging fashion trends. Currently I am just going to get some plain black ones (ones pictured are from Victoria’s Secret), while all those ones look fun, they are not practical for my uses currently and no one has invited me to any fashion shows yet.

This Blogging for Daters article by my friend over at Dear Winnie. It’s nice when bloggers are so welcoming AND helpful. Chelsea is my blogging fairy godmother.

This article on Stylish Thought I found today. A gem of a find I might add, this blogger adds a little inspiration to her fashion blogging. The article is dealing with a lot of my recent fashion issues, lest I remind you of the fit-of-rage-clothes-throwing episode?

This article rounding up the top IPhone cases from At First Blush! I must admit I have been lusting after one since day one, but it was never worth switching to the horrible AT&T service we have here. Mine would for sure be donning the Kate Spade retro telephone one!

Well there you have it! I did some online shopping today, thank you Urban Outfitters for the discount code today (valid until 3am, you still have time!) I bought myself a lovely coat. How did you spend your snow day? Stay warm!




Make a Statement

Happy Monday!

Even though I’m pretty sure that’s an oxymornon.

Was your weekend filled with copious amounts of homework like mine? Luckily the weeks have seem to be flying by and I’m just one step closer to busting out in the real world. Dressing this morning seemed to be an extra difficult task, and I felt the need for some pizazz, I think it’s only appropriate for a Monday. So I put on my $12 bracelet from Target I got ages ago, it doesn’t take much to spice up a simple outfit!

Recently I’ve seen on the wedding blogs and in the more nontraditional weddings brides with awesome statement necklaces. Melissa from The Loveliest Day featured some brides rocking the trend. I think it is be a great way for women who really express themselves. The photo’s are pretty gorgeous too!

I decided to do some procrastinating online shopping this weekend for some statement pieces on the cheap. I need to bulk up my costume jewelery collection if every Monday is going to feel like this.

Hubba hubba! This necklace from Topshop is a steal at $30 and also can count as your something blue!

I really like this one from Forever 21 however not a huge fan of the quality of jewelry from Forever, but what can you expect much more for $5.80?

Ooo Sparkley! This Urban Outfitters rhinestone mesh bib is beautiful! I wish I had an event lovely enough to wear it to, definitely adding it to my wishlist! Pretty good deal at $34.00.

Now that I have successfully put off my homework long enough, I must get going and be productive! Do you have a favorite place for costume jewelry or do you only wear the real thing?
