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.

New Year! + New resolutions = better blog

Hi all! I know my lack of posts have been devastating to you the past month or two. I just wanted to say, I'm sorry. I've been busy with finals, life decisions, ect. My only new years resolution (besides, you know, to loose weight like everyone else) is to blog more often, post more outfit shots, and make fun of more people all for your enjoyment. And mine.

In the mean time before life starts and I really get into the swing of this things, I am obsessssed with this song! I'm sorry there's not a video to it, but its a good song I promise. Deal with it.



"It's always wrong so I guess I'll dance tonight
Try as hard as I can to have fun tonight"

Kind of my motto in life lately.
