Most importantly – shoes: Steve Madden Leopard Carnabys, shorts: cut off, top: H&M bustier, duster: not really, vintage dress

Style Diary – Colatta Khakis

15 Nov

Wore this to work today.

Well, without the spikes.  Today was a looong work day. I’m in the last few days before I leave this 9-5 job I’ve been working, slightly going insane. I sit at a computer from 9-5 and by the end of it I have a migraine, my eyes hurt, and I feel like I might snap and do something crazy.  I took the train home and after standing in those shoes for the trip I made my way to the free seat once someone moved. As soon as I turned the train came to an abrupt halt and this strawberry colatta flew out of my hand and all over this guy wearing khakis….don’t wear khakis.  Of course, I was apologetic but I secretly thought I did him a huge favor….humpf, khakis.

Style Inspiration: THE END

15 Nov

Jacket: Talbots, t-shirt: no idea, stole it from Michael, skirt: thrifted, arm candy: Isabella Louis, rings: Forever.

Woke up this morning feeling a bit preppy but not so – tight polo and pearls preppy…I was feeling – uniform breaking, cig smoking, skipping out on the bourgeois with my motorcycle riding boyfriend from the wrong side of the tracks preppy.  So instead of wearing a camisole and a tennis bracelet I decided on a tee to dress it down and some chains and spikes to rock it up. Go for tees with BIG graphics (text only with a printed skirt) for major effect.

And never fear a colorful blazer. We’ll need it as New England gets more gothic for the season ahead.

Style Diary – Wishes

11 Nov

Today is 11.11.11 so if you missed 11:11am you MUST make a wish at 11:11pm.  That gives you all day to think about it.  If you had one wish what would you use it on? No cheating…no wishes for magic lanterns or 3 extra wishes…just one. Tough. Heck if I know. To keep my family and friends around forever, a lifetime supply of clothes, endless amounts of shoes, a million bucks, a business investor, a wardrobe job on a movie, Ryan Reynolds in my bed…who knows!

Here’s what I’m wearing.

Top: Thrifted $3

Skirt: Thrifted $7

Belt: Mommy’s closet $free

Shoes: Steve Madden Carnaby’s $179. On sale now for $99

Style Diary – UNDERWATER

8 Nov

That title has nothing to do with what I’m wearing right now but listen to this as you scroll through this post.

Today wasn’t very eventful until I decided to apply for the Real World during my lunch break.  Granted, I still need to make a video but I filled out my info, wrote a nonsense bio, and submitted a few pictures.  I did take the train today, however, and was followed home by a creepy man that’s followed me before. I once again had to walk around the block so the creep wouldn’t know where I live.  And the fact that I gave him that “you’ve gotta be f**king kidding me, I’m sick of your s**t” look must be an indicator that I’m more annoyed than afraid of creepy men following me on dark nights down dark streets. I mean, I am 5’10 in 5 inch heels and look like I could kick some major ass. Just sayin’.

Here’s what I wore and I’m pretty sure the entire look cost me less than 70 bucks including shoes. Bet you wanna know how I shop, huh?

Do wait.

I will tell.

Oh Schnaps 23 Part II

3 Nov

NONETHELESS, I made it back to Boston in one piece and then it hit me. Whoa, I’m 23! As a child, maybe teenager, I told myself by the end of my 23rd year I should have accomplished something amazing.  It’s sort of a deadline for me to become a famous actress, or designer, or writer…I don’t know, something.  I just felt a calling and for some reason 23 danced around as a deadline. Perhaps it’s written in my fate and I had a prophecy.  Sounds right.

Oh em ger, I only have a year left.

So, forget New Years. My new year started October 29th and I officially have 360 days to put some fire under my ass. And for this short time I’ve narrowed my goals down from superstardom and focused on my desire to work in film, design, my nifty Boston Bazaar, my move to Australia or London, and, of course, finish that damn novel I’ve been working on (Stewie voice). Oh, and totally being Tumblr famous 🙂

Oh Shnapps 23 Part I

3 Nov

The night before my birthday I worked late then decided to get some food.  Needless to say it was about 11 by the time I got back to my place.  Instead of rushing to make it to the bar by midnight we did this…

And then we headed to Copley, ran into some peeps on the street and then made it to the bar and I realized I forgot my ID. We get back to my place and head out…again and its 1:30 so we just head over to TITS and take some shots!

And then iHop because that’s the ONLY place open late night in Boston.

Next morning…woke up hungover, had a few glasses of champagne, headed to Louis Boston for Louis Exposure, had a glass of wine….

The the weekend went downhill from there.

-Everyone bailed on my extravagant birthday dinner.

-I said f*** those b****es and headed to my mommy. Whatever, I’ll have some time to write.

-Got caught in a mad blizzard on the highway, car slid the whole way, could barely see, and almost died…my phone was also dying.

-finally made it to Springfield only to be greeted by an entire city blackout and a freezing cold house and no way to charge my phone or laptops. And all of the groceries were going bad! I couldn’t return my redbox, couldn’t go to the atm, couldn’t get gas!

….it was such a tragedy that I ended up laughing the entire freezing night, snuggled with my mom in bed and a bottle of champagne.
