My best friend moved thousands of miles away over a year ago and she had the idea of starting a fashion blog to keep in touch and share with others our love for fashion.

It's getting chilly here...

...and chilly, by Houston terms, means about low 60s.  Nevertheless, you'll find natives around here wearing big heavy jackets, prepared for the "winter".  I decided to give this furry hoodie a second chance - I was just about to give it away until I realized that it was one of the few "transition" jackets I had.  I was impressed that it managed to go well with some of my more fashionable items of clothing - and the fact that it managed to match my hard to match heels.

A close-up of the heels.  I had to make my photographer practically lie on the ground to get a pic of these.  She's absolutely wonderful.  Also, Kristania of monochromachic has the same pair - be sure to check her out, the girl's got great style. :)

A closeup of the necklace.  It came with a top, so  I guess it's technically free. ;)

Sore Throat.

I'm still in love with my giant blue scarf, but I decided to wear it around my neck this time rather than as a cardigan. I tucked it into my belt to keep it in place (and to show off the buckle). :) The warmth around my neck is also helping since I have a sore throat. Mucinex is my best friend for the next day or two.

Esperanza, as said in my previous post, is the annual fall formal held on campus.  This year, I helped plan it!  So...I guess it's fair to say it was a huge deal to me.  Unfortunately, I was running around being busy about half the night - so I didn't get a lot of pictures in.  I said to my suitemate, though, I need an outfit picture for my readers! :)

the title speaks for itself. but besides that little bit of news, the other day the weather was looking peculiarly nice for winter weather so i went on a photo shoot with robin who is an awesome outfit photographer :) i got this new dress from urban and i was dying to wear it for a while. i love photo shoot days; it means i won't have to take an awkward self-portrait in front of my roommate's closet curtain.

051i'm in love with these mustard tights. it's hard to match them with an outfit but i love them nevertheless.

i just got back from a weekend retreat this past weekend and it was a ton of fun. i met a lot of awesome people and bonded more with my fellow rutgers people :)

How many outfits do I go through a day?

Far too many.

Part of having a fashion blog almost guarantees shopaholicism for me.  At the same time, I'm lucky that I own as many clothes as I do because I average about 4 outfits a day.  The "going to class" outfit, the "lounging around" outfit, the "hanging out with friends" outfit, and the "hanging out with a certain boy" outfit".  That's of course, not including the "working out" outfit and the "going to sleep" outfit.
Yesterday I went shopping with my photographer Kay.  My Esperanza (fall formal dance on campus) dress finally arrived in the mail (though it needs lots and lots of ironing).  Therefore, I found it an opportunity to go and buy a silver belt to match it.  Kay and I trekked to XXI with limited time and bought home few things, but of course, wanted a whole bunch.

Here's the "going shopping" outfit for yesterday:

CIMG3436I couldn't take too many pictures, as this was downtown Houston - which means lots and lots of strangers from the real world and not the sheltered bubble I'm used to being in.
The earrings I wore are my favorite pair, and I promise a closeup for y'all next time. :)

so i have to admit that my halloween (and my mischief night) was full of non-stop drama, but regardless of all that i had a great time dressing up and hanging out with my friends.  (at least i think i did since i don't really remember most of it...;) )

on halloween night i dressed up as meeko (the raccoon from pocahontas) and my friend patrick dressed up as flit (the hummingbird). unfortunately we didn't have a pocahontas but it was awesome anyway.

087the size ratio isn't quite right :P he's an adorable flit, isn't he? you can see my tail in the photo below (my favorite part of the costume).

I hope you guys all had fabulous Halloweens as well. What'd you guys dress up as? (I'd love pictures!) :)

Until Next Time, Jen

My New Holey Tights :(

About two months ago, Jen bought me these lovely pair of side-ripped tights from Urban Outfitters.  The catch is, they only look side-ripped, but they're perfectly intact.  When I put them on this morning, perhaps in a bit of a rush, I accidentally tore a huge hole in the side of one leg.  While I brainstormed ways to make it look uniformly distressed, I put on a pair of boots to cover the hole up.  Don't you hate it when you ruin something you love wearing - especially when it's the first time you've worn it?  I figured, the tear would be even LESS worth it if I didn't at least get a picture in it.  I caught Kay on her way back to class and voila!

These are a Few of my Favorite Things

i just realized...i have two huge loads of laundry washing in the basement and i still have enough clothes in my room to wear a different outfit for at least two months. i really want to donate some to charity but i'm one of those people that can't bear to part with anything. i still have all my homework assignments from elementary school and middle school stashed in my basement at home! i mean really, when am i going to ever need those ever again, let alone look at them?

023this was one of my comfy outfits. the only problem with it, was the excessive amount of wind that day lifting up my flimsy skirt. whoops :P i love these tights that i got a few weeks ago. the color is gorgeous as well as the pattern. Elaine from Clothed Much actually has these tights too!

029 030shown above are some of my all time favorite things: my bird necklace (great memories) and these flats from blowfish. i'm pretty sure these flats are worn out to the point where i need new ones, but i can't part with them. they're just too comfy and perfect. <3
