All You Can Eat

Posted by Picasa
I think everyone needs a hot date shirt that they can feel comfortable in, cute, and feel like it flatters- particularly when you're going out to eat a burger the size of your head. Yes, I did it. Did I mention these shirts are better when you considered paying full price at Anthro and then found it at a consignment store, where you traded in shorts to get it free?

At Last

I found this vintage shirt way back in Feb. when I took my trip to LA. For some reason I never pulled it out to wear until today- what was I thinking?

Something about red and black takes me back to that magical night during my study abroad in Mexico where a Mariachi band came and played for my entire class. We danced under the moonlight, and I remember thinking how it was the most romantic setting in the entire world. Red and black with a flower behind the ear will always bring that kind of nostalgia out!

J Crew

I drool over the JCrew catalog every time it comes, but my budget conscious self always swashes hopes of purchases. I can't tell you of my excite when the summer clearance event happened, I now own 4 JCrew shirts. I will say, these polos are so amazing, I may consider full price in the future!
Polo: Jcrew, $8, Jeans: Gifted, Earrings: $4, Shoes: Kohls, $13 ( I think, it's late and I have midterms:) )

Little Girly

I am told often that I don't look my age, and thus I try to dress to look a little older to be taken seriously at work and with my professors. Today I scratched that entirely, I felt like a young girl, looked like a young girl, and decided to bask in the mid 20's!
