I'm Loving > > Fluorescent for Fall

Those of you who follow me on Pinterest (pssst.. follow me!) know that I sort of have a pinning obsession. Pinterest is a great tool for giving you a visual representation of the trends you're drawn too, even if you haven't consciously realized it yet! I logged on today to discover that in the past couple weeks I've pinned tonnns of fashion and design in bright, pulsing, fluorescent colors. It's a far cry from the typical deep jewel tone colors usually seen for fall, but I just love the unexpected!

Dress to Impress.. on an unemployed budget.

We had our career fair this past Friday, and with no job lined up for after graduation this was a pretty big deal for me. I know this is an issue a lot of people are dealing with right now whether you are graduating this year or have been layed off, so I thought it would be fitting to do a Dress To Impress segment with a poor college kid's budget. Eat all the Ramen Noodles you have to, just don't look like you do!

Inspiration:

It's simple but still says HEY I DESIGN SHIT AND AM AWESOME while still looking like they can take you seriously. Red is always a good color to catch someone's attention and say hey look at me! but the tan tones it down enough for office wear. (I think I also subconsciously picked red because it's Cincinnati Red's opening day tomorrow. Hollaaaa!) Also note: don't wear the shoes you wear out to a job interview. Thats just dumb. You will look like a hooker and you're feet will be miserable because you're not drunk to block out the pain (or you shouldn't be anyways..). Go for a low conservative heal or flats.


Recreated with a Ramen-Noodle budget:

Done. Winning. Hired.

{Inspiration Post} SPRING

The past few days has been in the 70s and sunny. Mother nature is finally starting to thaw cold Ohio and all I can think about is warm sunshine, bright pops of color, hammocks, the Kentucky Derby, sandals, freckles, and blonder hair.

Bask in the glory of spring after the jump.

I don't speak German, but I can if you like.

I'm sure this isn't new news to anyone now but DAMNIT I just CANNOT stop listening/watching Lady Gaga's remix to her new song "Schei├če" that she did for the Thierry Mugler menswear show, which took place in Paris on Wednesday.





You did it again Gaga. Never cease to amaze.

Classics for Class

I KNOW. Everyone wants outfit shots. I love blogs with outfit shots just as much as the next person and I'M SORRY. I just feel weird taking mass amounts of pictures of my self, okay? Does anyone else think it's a little... awkward? Anyways, I won't let my phobia stop me from sharing with you some of my favorite outfits and styling. My InDesign skillz are way more advanced than my photogenic ones anyway.
I love how simple yet comfortable everything is. I had a teacher in high school that once said that if she bothers to look presentable for us everyday then she expects her students to look presentable for her. I'll admit I have worn sweatpants to the occasional 8am class but I try not to make a habit of it. It's a proven fact, people judge based on appearances.
