Mom's visit

My mom visited me today. Visits always ensure something new.

We went shopping at various shops, I bought her a bra from the bra boutique I work at, and she bought me new Victorian boots, a much needed wallet, and some used books. She also brought my roommate and I some pictures for our bare walled livingroom. Woo! I am sad she had to leave so soon :(

boots $25, Great Expectations and The French Connection $6 total, wallet $10.

Who is Lina Lee? And why are these boots $210.00? Thank goodness for consignment shops!

new top

I'm trying to buy up some tops, I have none I really like...except my stripey tank.

Bought this at BR last night. I think it's prettty.

It's kind of low cut..but what of mine isn't!

I just ordered these bottoms, $15. yay.
I hope I can find a halter top at old navy or target. My chest will not fit in that dinky bandeau top.

Summer SALE

Summers sales are everywhere! Sadly, nothing good is in them!
I went shopping yesterday with hopes of finding a few key items.

I found nothing.
A vest from Anthropologie, a top from Arden B., and 2 pairs of Victoria Secret unders.
I hate shopping. Why is it that when you have cash in hand, the racks are bare. When the bank is dry, there's clothes everywhere! AH.

I look chub. I paired the vest with this pencil skirt and a tank from Old Navy (which a lot of people have!)

I wear this tank entirely too much. Today was work so I paired it with these stripey navy pants. The stripes on tank are navy as well.

Theme: France

(Just a french prop, don't worry I don't smoke)

Last night a friend of mine and I had a dinner party with a French theme. It was so much fun! Amazing food and too much wine!! We danced til 2:30am. My legs are killing me. I'm so glad you like my shoes.


Back, back, back it up. HA..Me and my roommate dancing.

They are too much! Trying to be oh so french.

Stripes girls! How cliche are we?

My skirt is BR. Tank as well. I can't wait for the next dress up dinner party!

The idiots over at hot_fashion on livejournal said they were hooker shoes that look bad from the side.

I can't wrap my mind around this. They do not look like hooker shoes nor are they any less hot from the side? Furthermore, is anyone REALLY going to be staring at my feet from the side??? Is this really something people consider when buying shoes? Sure, I look in the mirror at all angles, but the front is what matters most to me. I guess I'm just weird? Whatever.

Someone even said gladiators are 3 years ago. Um, hello? Have you been on a shoe website lately? In a store? Or read a magazine? That's all that's out there! People never cease to amaze me. And while I can realize that may true, as my gladiator flat sandals are circa is cyclic so get over it.

Rant done.

They were only $20 and worth every penny!

I can't afford $600 dior or some such designer gladiator heels so in my mind these are just fine. They make me think of Carrie Bradshow and runways. Suits me! As long as I can walk...

They're 5.5 inches. My tallest shoes ever. Now, I just need to play with my wardrobe and see what fun things I can put with them.

As you probably do not know, I majored in Psychology in college and I want to be a social worker. Yesterday I received a call and have an interview set up! I am very excited and very disappointed at the same time. My first choice was to stay here in this city and the 5th or 7th choice was a county close to the beach. Well, one of those latter choices is the one that called me so the open position is in the middle of no where!

Do I take it if offered the position? You're probably screaming YES but..I have a lot to think about.

In fashion news, I ordered a pair of shoes that should be here on the 12th. Super excited. I haven't had new shoes in ages!

I feel like dancing! And kissing and sexing and swimming and laughing and letting it all go.

When you think french fashion what comes to mind? Go! Tell me now. I think all the cliche sort of things.

Yelle in the summertime

I can't even begin to tell you how hot it is in my room in our apartment. Why did I volunteer to take the no AC room again?? I bought a bar of chocolate last night from the store and it was melted within minutes. I'm not lying. I put it in the fridge this morning and got it out about 30 minutes ago. Melted again in the living room. This place is a regular inferno!!

It didn't help that I wore a sweater dress today. From Banana Republic's (in case you've forgotten, or didn't know, I work there, and ONLY shop there because I get a 50% discount) Spring 2 or Summer 1 line. It's a thin sweater material but no less HOT HOT HOT.

I'm going to see the Sex and the City movie tonight. I guess I'll just keep this on.

I'm listening to some sort of french pop music. Yelle's album Pop Up. Have a listen!
