Hot vs. Cold

I feel like it's so much easier to make different combinations of outfits in the cold weather (ie: Fall/Winter) compared to the hot weather (ie: Spring/Summer). I'm not complaining, but it's hard to layer things differently without overheating or being uncomfortable. Although, I do like the ease of slipping on shorts and a flowy top (or in this case, a dress and a thin cardigan!)

It's Getting Hot In Here..

Haha, you like my title :-) It was 95 degrees today and it's not even "officially" Summer! This is insane. I guess I didn't dress very weather-appropriate.

Feminine & Pretty

I'm loving the whole soft/feminine-ness that's going around right now. It makes everyone seem much more delicate, but still real at the same time. I got this shirt a couple of weeks ago and forgot about it, but I got a chance to wear it today! It was 85 degrees! I love the butterfly sleeves :-)

You love my recent one-word titles, yeah? Haha, I'm having an off day and I wore an outfit that I used to wear all the time but hadn't in a while- hence, me wearing it. (Bad grammar).

Last night was Sadies! It wasn't that great, the before and after were much more fun. (We had a sleepover after and were up till about 4. And then woke up at 8.) They were so strict on dresscode! It was ridiculous, but we got in haha. Anyways, this is what I wore to school yesterday and what we wore to Sadies. We were supposed to be Ariel from The Little Mermaid :-)

This is some of our group, sorry for the bad picture! (Click for bigger)

Pushin' Ninety

Does anyone remember that song? It was in this old, old sitcom that doesn't run anymore, and whose name I forgot, but it was very funny. It was pretty hot today, around 82, but it was nice. I just got back from the doctor (again) and I have to wear my glasses for 2 weeks to school! Bleh, he said before I could wear my contacts to school and put my glasses on at home, but apparently my eye is not healing sooooooo I have to "let my eyes breathe." Poo.

Cheap Skate

I got this top at a store for $5- no sale or clearance. At the same store, they were selling a pair of rollerskates for $500. Wierd?

So, the top makes me look like I'm pregnant...

But, I'm really not.

And don't worry, I'm wearing shorts :-)

Sinking In

I'm in a very happy mood today! I got to skip 1st period to go to the doctor (again, yay!) and apparently, I missed the most boring history class ever! So that's good :-) I finally got my contacts back, so I can see without glasses again! I also started passing out my sixteenth birthday invitations at school, so the reality of me turning 16 is finally sinking in. Even though I still have 44 days left to my birthday (yes, I counted) and 47 to my party, I'm super excited! The invitation is printed onto cds and Britney's "Oops I Did It Again" is recorded onto it, only because it makes me happy.

And what I wore today- my new shirt! It says "kicked out of the love club."

The Beginning Of The End

'Tis the last day of Spring Break :-( I don't want to go back to school! I was having much fun walking slowly around my house and the neighborhood. My friend and I plan on spending the majority of the day at Barnes and Nobles, relaxing and reading. It will be very soothing, seeing as how it is around 97 degrees outside! At least I'm getting a chance to wear my new shorts!

It's a very simple outfit, but who really wants to dress up when it's this hot outside? Not me...

Thursday, April 10, 2008


is what I officially am. Okay, well not yet, but my eyes keep getting worse and worse. After a trip to the optometrist yesterday, my doctor told me that one of my corneas is swollen (...?) and then I can't wear my contacts till my next appt. which we took for Monday morning so I wouldn't have to wear my glasses to school. It's not that I look ridiculous in them, but rather I feel weird in them! If someone took them off, I wouldn't be able to see anything! And wouldn't that be unfortunate?

Anyways, most of yesterday (before my appt) was spent painting shirts and trying to destroy my new shorts with my friend. I messed up on the shirt and then tried to erase it with bleach which was a bad idea. So then, I washed it and tried to paint over the bleach but, since the shirt was still wet, the paint spread everywhere so I put it in the dryer hoping to tame the stupid Shirt. Bad, bad idea. The paint got all over the inside of the dryer, my mom got mad at me, and my shirt was ruined! It was a sad day. But, on the plus side, my shorts turned out pretty cool. I sprayed some bleach on them, and splattered some black paint. The cheese grater didn't work (someone on TeenVogue said to do this..) but oh well! After the appointment, that same friend and I went shopping at the Spectrum. I got two lovely shirts- one is very springy and the other is very summer casual. I plan on wearing the latter to school Monday or Tuesday, so I'll post a picture then. The first one, however, I don't know when I'll be wearing, so here you go! (I apologize in advance for the sucky pictures! I took these last night.)

Real color:

Sass and Bide

Is anyone else seriously obsessed with the Sass and Bide Fall 2008 RTW collection? I love the tight lame pants/leggings (what are those?) and the gold glitter and the all-black combinations!

Home Sweet Home

If you couldn't tell from the title, I am back from my 1 1/2 day trip to Vegas! :-) It was very relaxing, I have to say.
We stayed at New York New York:

The view from our room:

We reached there Sunday night- ate at a Mexican place in the hotel and walked around some. In the night, my parents went to gamble (good parenting skills, ya?) and I was left to myself in the room. But it was okay, I watched some tv and finished up my book that I hadn't been getting any time to read. The next day, we went to this huge mall called Fashion Show Mall. It was probably the biggest mall I've ever seen (besides the HBK mall in Thailand but that's a different story!) It had some good shops and I bought some sweatpants from Express (haha!), a white top and necklace from Forever 21, and some new jeans from Zara. I've been needing new jeans for a while now. They're not as tight in the leg as I'd like, but they make my butt look nice :-) And while we're talking about jeans, does anyone know what brand/store sells tight-in-the-leg jeans? Not too tight, but pretty fitted? You would be much help! Anyways, I wore this shopping (sorry for the bad picture!):

Marroon shorts (Old Navy), White pinstriped button down (Kaitlyn), Black & White swing-type jacket (Gift), Necklace (Urban Outfitters), Sandals-not shown (India).

I'll probably be wearing what I bought soon, so I'll post the pictures then!
That night, we went to see Le Reve, which was amazing. It was an aquatic show and I would have taken pictures for all of you but you weren't allowed to :-( But if anyone if going to Vegas soon, I definetely reccomend it! I wish I could do what the performers did, they were crazy. I did snag a picture of the "stage":

It was basically a pool of water, with occasional "floors" coming up every now and then. It was pretty cool :-)

I wore (cheesy pose!):

Top: Forever 21, Cardigan: American Apparel, Navy Tights: Albertsons, Boots: Steve Madden via Famous Footwear

After the show that night, my eyes were bothering me so I went back to the room and ordered room service by myself :-) The food was delicious and huge and wonderful!

Nachos, guac, salsa, and french fries!
The next day (today), we left :( We stopped at some outlets and I finally found some denim shorts that I've been searching for! They're a little loose but I'm hoping a few rounds in the dryer will fix that! Also, does anyone know how to destroy denim?

And now my huge post is done!

I'm Lagging

and I am truly very sorry! Yesterday was a minimum day (first day of spring break! Yay!) and didn't wear anything too blog-worthy. After school, some friends came over and we made (or rather, my mom made) our outfits for Sadies. The theme is Under the Sea, so we're going for an Ariel reference with green skirts and purple tops. The material is pretty cool, I have to say. We kindof ran out of time since I had to go work on a science project (...yay) and so my mom didn't make mine yet. But once she does, I will definetely post it! I like how it turned out :-)

Tomorrow, I'm leaving for Vegas until Tuesday. It's a short trip, and we're basically only going because a hotel there sent my dad free room tickets for his birthday (the 12th). I think we're seeing a show (I forget which one) Monday night and hopefully shopping earlier that day! I'm excited, and will most likely bring my laptop so I can post my outfits/pictures.

I might go shopping today to get those shorts I posted down there, I hope I do! Yeah, so that's basically it. I have to go shower, I just got back from the gym. And so this post isn't sucky, here is some (maybe) inspiration!

Horizontal Stripes...

Are they really that unflattering? Everyone is always saying that they make you look wide, or fat. I found this top in my closet last night and thought I would wear it and see if what I hear is true. I decided it wasn't, but I guess it depends on your body type? Oh well.

Jeans: H&M, Top: H&M via gift, Cardigan: American Apparel, Necklace: Urban Outfitters, Rings: Urban Outfitters & Forever 21, Bracelet: Lucky via friend, Sandals: India

PS- These are really awkward pictures :-)

Been There, Done That

I honestly wear this combination of clothes too much. I don't think I have recently (or maybe I have) but oh well. On the plus side, I got new tights! They are navy blue and I wore them today to "spice up" my omnipresence (does it make sense to use this word here? outfit. I also got a chance to wear my new bag :)

Blue tights!
