My Trench

A great trench coat is a staple piece that will always be in style. I got this one from H&M for $60 I believe, I also I have a gray one in a different style. Trenches seem to class up anything you wear; even a simple outfit like a sweater and jeans like I have on.

Hot Pants

School hates me and I hate school. Grrr.

Anyway, I want to thank those who responded to my last post. It was just nice to hear from people on that matter. Also, I was surprised to be called brave for speaking about my insecurities; it was kind of cool actually. I just spoke from the heart and was intent on writing a sincere post.

Insecure Much?

We all have insecurities; I was just wondering how you all deal with them?

I've had acne probably since I was 13 and I'm 20 now, so it has plagued me for a long time. Not only do I have acne but I have the scars to prove it. It's my number #1 insecurity, it precedes any body issues I may have. And I've noticed because of my insecurities about my face (along with other things) I'm guarded and my self-esteem is lower than it should be. I deal with it by...I don't think I do deal with it actually. Humor covers up a lot of my issues; I turn to humor to say "everything is alright" when it sometimes isn't. So my personal mission is to figure stuff out and be confident. I think I can do it :)

Label Whores

label whore

A label whore is someone who only wears brand name clothes, with the name of the brand usually placed somewhere for all to see. A walking advertisement for a clothing store or brand.
(definition from Urban Dictionary)
So I was watching a reality show the other night and one of the women featured went on and on about how she loves all these different high end brands in a really obnoxious way. It was as if since the items were these big name designers they were then fashionable. NAMES DO NOT EQUATE STYLE! It's unfortunate that some people think that way; money sometimes caters to delusion.

Lordy, I had to get that off of my chest! I just never understood the reasoning.

Hello, Hi

Just another school day, womp womp. Decided to have a little fun with these photos, brought out a pair of sunglasses I no longer wear; they just seemed fitting.

Happy Friday to you all!

Today: Spiderweb

The weather has been awesome here in NY these last couple of days. It's amazing how I went from scarves and layers to walking out of the house with only a cardigan. I wish it was warm all year long; I'm dreading the frigid winter that's coming :/

Good Day

I had such a good day; I went thrifting on Long Island then went to a family friend's daughter's confirmation party. It just felt good to be home.

Though it was a good day it started off rocky; I had an idea of what I wanted to wear today but it so didn't work so I tried on something else, that wasn't working for me either. So what you see here is my 3rd attempt at getting dressed lol The first pic is me making sure that it looked alright before I headed to my folk's place (I wish I had better skinny jeans, that's my next must buy).

p.s. the pictures of me in the suburbs were taken by my father, it was such a relief not to have to fuss with a tripod.

Working Hard, Unfortunately

Sorry for the lack of posts, I have papers due for all of my classes so I've been really busy writing papers and hating life. I don't think I've ever gone this long without posting an outfit pic. Something is coming soon; I promise! I'm going to leave you with this image; damn, cats are smart.

I remember when...

...Brandy was "just sittin' on top of the world"
...SNL was funny
...everyone had a Livestrong band (sometimes) unconscious of its meaning
...I felt I could do anything
...the Twin Towers could be seen from my 7th grade classroom in Long Island
...boys didn't affect me
...a song couldn't make me cry
...I wore a uniform five days a week (for 13 years)
...books used to be fun (college made them tedious)
...Britney was wholesome
...the guys I know were only boys
...teenage love was a possibility virginity wasn't something I needed to be cured of
...AOL chatrooms were cool
...I got my first cell phone
...I cried in my mother's arms about the broken relationship between me and my father stung to be called an Oreo oldest brother called me a dumb broad and meant it
...New York City was a far away place

The Weirdness

I just came back from Abercrombie & Fitch, the huge one on 5th and 56th, and it was something else. The music was blaring, it reeked of cologne and it was super dark for a place where clothes have to be seen. On to the staff, everyone and I mean everyone is really good looking. My friend works there (which is why I went) and he's a hottie and so is everyone he works with. He said "you could work here" and I'm thinking no way! That place totally messed with my head, it was like the jocks, cheerleaders and popular kids decided to work in a store lol.

Feeling Pretty

This dress is one of those things in my closet that I turn to to feel pretty. It has accompanied me to a dinner in celebration of a friend's high school graduation, barbeque hopping in the summer of '07, a reunion of classmates from my 8th grade class and sunny days here in the city. I love you dress, you have been nothing but good to me
