Ahhh English problem is resolved, hence the title. Haha :)

I have this pair of jeans that I wear the majority of the week, so I'm trying not to wear them for a while. That's why probably most of the outfits I'm going to post will include tights which I have refound my love (does that make sense?)

Anyways, outfit was simple/casual but I think it worked.

Also, which sandals do you guys think look better with my formal dress?
I posted the dress before but so you don't have to look for it:

I'm probably going to change into one of these for dancing. Heels are for pictures/dinner.

I like the bead ones better but my dog bit off all the beads on the other sandal. I glued them back together and it looks kindof bad/messy but my mom said no one will notice because it will be dark. What do you think?

Channeling Scandinavia

I've fallen in love with Scandinavians. They always look so adorable and effortlessly chic!
I stumbled upon one blog, Lisaplace, and let me tell you, this girl is the possibly the coolest person i've ever seen. Although I can't read any of the blog (it's in Scandinavian) her outfits are gorgeous. I hope she doesn't mind me posting some.

So today, I tried to channel my inner Scandinavia and this is what I came up with.

Okay, so the only common things are the tights and shoes but I liked it. I should probably get a highwaisted skirt to really look the part :)

high & wasted

Haha I am so funny :)
As I said would, I tried on some tops with my new high waisted jeans. I still have yet to conquer the art of tucking in long things without there being a bulge, but I think I did pretty good.

^ Okay so I couldn't hide both of the bulges in this one :(

(My hands are in weird positions to sneakily cover the bulges hehe. And please keep in mind that none of these are accessorized yet.)

On a side note, my mom has been giving my old clothes to Goodwill for as long as I can remember. But recently (today) she said I could sell them to Buffalo Exchange. You have no idea how excited I am. Don't get my wrong, I love to help out the needy but as a sophomore in high school with no job who survives off gift money from family/friends, leftover lunch money, and the occasional money from the parents, I would really like/enjoy the extra money even if it won't be that much. Also, this gives me motivation to clean out my closet...

Apparently, they're the next Target GO International designer: arriving March 2, 2008.
Sorry if I'm ruining this for anyone :)

It's made up of LA based Milla Jovovich and Carmen Hawk. I was looking through their Spring 2008 collection and I really enjoyed it. Hopefully, they bring some sweet clothes to Target becuase I find that the GO designers don't always bring the best looking clothes from their collections. You know?

These were some of my favorite. They're classic Spring colors, but the designs are just beautiful. I especially liked the purple/pink polka dotted romper (the first one). I usually despise polka dots, but this is just amazing! And then because I was having SO much fun, I went over to the past collections and looked at Holiday 2007. I feel like it was more safe design-wise, but they did have some very, very nice dresses.

The green jacket/dress thing was my favorite :)
So basically, I'm very excited for Jovovish-Hawk to come to Target!

P.S. I finally got some high waisted jeans! Outfits tomorrow for you!

Sooo I finally found some shoes for formal!

(I need a pedicure. Ignore my feet and face heh)
This was a useless post. I'm going shopping in 20 minutes :)

are almost over! Yay!
I'm so excited, I think I did quite well on the ones I've taken so far.
And after tomorrow's finals, it's a 4 day weekend! I'm going to Pheonix for my mom's cousin's daughter's son's 1st birthday. There's supposedly really good outlets right near their house, so that's exciting. Friday, I'm going shopping and (hopefully) getting some highwaisted skinny jeans, EXCITING.

I've been wearing really boring outfits this week because of finals but I PROMISE to post some snazzy ones starting next week!
Also, I was wondering what you guys wanted to see more in the blog?

What's In for Spring 2008

Yes, I am psychic.
Naht. I was browsing and came upon the 2008 Spring Style Trends. They consisted of "bare market"- basically, showing some skin and see through items; "boy meets girl"-androgny everywhere; "hippie revival"-fringe and tie dye; "neon bible"-dazzling shades of green, orange, yellow, pink, blue, etc; "nice stems"-floral everything; and finally "style tribes"-bold african/indian inspired prints. My favorite would have to be the latter. Ever since I got back from India (beginning of this month), my eyes have just been drawn to everything with an ethnic print. It's like the dormant ethnic side to me has finally been revived. I also can't help but to notice the prices of everything printed I look at. I actually bought a top in India for about 10$ converted in this beautiful black and white print. And as it so happens, I was browsing Net-a-Porter and saw an identical printed top for like 500$. Moral of this story: Go to India and buy clothes.

I am horrible. I worked on my history project/english project all day, so I didn't get to take a picture of my dress. But here's the picture I took last night , hopefully you can see something!

I still need to find some cheap shoes!
And I don't really have anything to talk about so here are some outfits (recent and old).

Hello bloggers/blog-readers! I didn't realize that I haven't been on since TUESDAY. Sorry!

Like most everyone else, I have finals next week so I probably won't be on much because I'll be busy cramming everything into my head. Yay finals! But, on the plus side, I have A's in ALL my classes except one but I have a 88 in there so hopefully it'll raise with my finals.

On to other things, my winter formal is coming up! (Also like most everyone else.) I went dress shopping today with my momma to Mission Viejo Mall. I was planning on getting some cheap thing from Forever 21 becuase I have to pay for everything myself and everything is becoming quite expensive (Ticket was 60$, Limo is 40$, then there's pictures, dinner, dress, shoes...) But the first store we went into was Express becuase we saw some sale signs. It was CRAZY in there. There were such big sales, and they were everywhere!! There were those like 9.99, 19.99, 29.99 bins and then 30% of everything that's on sale! It was amazing! I ended up getting my dress from there + these sweet purple yoga pants for a combined total of dun dun dun...23 dollars! I was so happy! (You can probably tell by my exclamation marks) I still have to buy shoes somewhere but this dress makes me so happy.

I'll post some pictures tomorrow, because it's night time right now and my room is dark (even with the lights on.)
Don't die of anxiety!
(I'm lame.)

These days, I see many "hipsters" wearing their American Apparel v-necks, skinny jeans, beat up shoes, and camera around their neck. Some of them take pictures becuase it's the "cool thing to do," while others are actually very good. I would think I'm the latter (minus the hipster part) although this is probably not the case. So, I'm dedicating this post to show you a few simple shots. Enjoy.

(Sorry, the last one won't rotate. They are all unedited, except the first one.)

MaryKate and Ashley

Possibly two of the most debated-about girls, fashion wise. Personally, I love them, especially Mary-Kate. There's just something about her "thrown-together" style that appeals to me.

I am absolutely in love with the last three dresses. I would probably die if I got my hands on one of them. And to make it better, that last dress is from their very own line, Elizabeth and James. Gorgeous, no?

Oh, Proenza

So I have a confession. I used to never really follow fashion shows and all that jazz. Sure, I knew all the big designers and the ones I stumbled upon in Vogue and Nylon, but I never went online looking for shows, etc. But I’m starting to get really into browsing the Ready-to-Wear collections on First collection I looked at: Proenza Schouler. I have to say, I never really looked at any of their clothes besides when they had the little line at Target going on, but the collection definitely pleasantly surprised me.

Runway collections always seemed extremely unpractical and exxagerated to me (which they are). But Proenza Schouler's Spring 2008 Ready-to-Wear collection definetely changed my opinion about that. I could totally see people wearing these or variations of these outfits outside. I used to hate the whole tailored look, but I think I could really get into it. If I was cool as Stephanie (writer of the blog boomshakkalakka), I would recreate this looks. But sadly, I am not.


Okay, so I decided I should probably start writing in this thing. I don't know where this blog will go, but I know that I definitely want to post my own outfits. I want to post the pictures of inspiration I have saved in a big folder on my desktop, comment on designers (maybe? I need to start getting into looking at collections online), and basically give my opinion on everything and anything I come across.

So I guess I'll end this with two pictures, hopefully you'll enoy them as much as I do.
