Hello, lovely people!

It's been a while since I've been able to take a moment, breathe, and do some blogging. While everyone around me seems to be getting busier, my semester is (finally) slowing down and I have no shame in admitting my daily activities= sleep and hardcore Law&Order: SVU marathons. I guess that's the upside to torturing myself towards the beginning of the semester.

Since I came back to school, it's been difficult not only to find time for blogging, but especially for outfit posts- there's a select number of people that I feel comfortable asking for help, most of whom are not currently around the area/ not able to help cause they have their own lives and schedules, so I was pumped when my beautiful coworker (you rock, Jocelyn!!!) took me up on a quick photo shoot during our girls' day shopping trip.

I've been rocking this scarf quite frequently since fall began, and I even turned it into a toga for a party (though now there's pin marks in it and I'm not particularly happy about that). I can't remember where I got my hands on this beauty, but I thiiiiiiiink it might be one of the (high number of) scarfs that my grandma received as a present at some point and decided to share. Few things make me happier than my grandma getting scarfs as presents- my family has great taste, and my grandma always feels generous towards her youngest granddaughter :)
This particular day was my button down's death day. After wearing it one last time, I finally parted with one of my best wardrobe friends. You can't tell in the photos, but I've my mom has stitched the crap out of the back of this, since it started ripping about a year ago. It really was time to say goodbye!

And for now, it's my time to say goodbye to you all! Thank you so much for stopping by, and I promise I can't wait to be able to spend more time working on my little blog and finding new victims volunteers to help document my outfit posts!

Have a lovely evening!

Style: My Oscar de la Renta Favorites.

Confession: High-end designers aren't my cup of tea. Give me an H&M collab or a line with Kohl's, and I'm sold (cheers to you, Lauren Conrad!), but going out and spending an obscene amount of money on one item of clothing is something I just can't justify with my broke college kid wallet and ability to get bored quickly.

However, there are a handful of amazing people whose designs take my breath away every single time and who I hope to one day be able to integrate into my closet. This list is topped by Oscar de la Renta, who sadly passed away on Oct. 20, 2014. De la Renta is one of a handful of designers (alongside Elie Saab, Prabal Gurung, Diane von Furstenberg, and Maria Lucia Hohan) whose items feel like treasures- something I'd be able to hold onto for a lifetime. 
I've never been one to cry over celebrity deaths, but for some reason this one hit me hard. His designs are a fairytale, and his creativity and words of wisdom shall be missed. I still hope that one day I can be fancy in an Oscar de la Renta creation. 
For today, I just wanted to share a few of my favorite de la Renta creations with you guys!

Thank you for stopping by! 
P.S. The only Oscar de la Renta dress I will admit to hating on is that Sarah Jessica Parker Met Gala dress. 




*Disclaimer: The photos very obviously were not taken by me. Had I been able to attend an Oscar de la Renta show, I probably would have freaked out and had a heart attack. Thanks to my homie Google Images for the help.

Hi, everybody! It's been a while. But now that I'm done with mad amounts of school work, I'm finally back at this blogging business. For now, just a short post- my parents came to visit last weekend, and I got my little mini me to take a couple of photos. He wasn't doing very well, hence my mid eye-roll caught in the second photo.

I'm so excited to be done with the most difficult part of my semester (and my entire undergraduate career, for that matter), and be able to take some time off and focus on my passions (namely blogging and Law and Order: SVU marathons). 

I've already registered for classes next semester, and I can't wait to have time to get more involved on campus- I'm done with classes and work by 4 p.m. every day! I'm going to be finishing my required classes next semester, so I'll only need some electives, and then bam! Hello, December '15 graduation! 

I suppose what I'm trying to say is that I'm doing real swell right now, and I truly hope you are as well!

Thanks for stopping by!
