welcome to the jungle

Vintage Ann Taylor dress  Grey Dog, Target knee highs/socks & bag, F21 belt & boots 
Oh hey! You know me, just flexing my guns…sorry if the awesomeness blinded you. I found this amazing silk dress where I work and instantly fell in love–the color and the fabric is absolutely dreamy. And it makes me wish I was in Jumanji, hence my “get back you tiger, before I whip you” face in the second photo.

It’s my first full week back, after almost 2 weeks of snow days! Which leads me to my slow response to replies and so on. I don’t want to be one of those bloggers who never answers back…so give me time. 

Another distraction….NYFW?! Favorite collections so far ( I won’t bore you with a bazillion images you’ve already seen) :  Marc Jacobs ( “Beautiful People” is still on repeat in my head), Marc by Marc Jacobs, Jason Wu, DVF, Badgley Mischka, Donna Karan, Chris Benz, Thakoon & Rodarte. 

I’m feeling some runway inspired DIYs coming soon! Any suggestions on what you want to see?

my iron-on heart

 DIY denim top, Gap jeans and beanie, F21 boots & clutch

I present to you–the DIY top from my previous post. Nothing too complicated but it definitely brought new life to one of my favorite denim button ups. As you can see, the snow is melting! But I still want the cold weather to stick around, I was made for it! I’m peacing out for a few days (snow days do not mean rescheduling tests, they mean I need to start studying), but I’ll get back to all of you wonderful peeps as time permits! 

Finish the weekend off strong…whatever that means to you!

DIY: denim heart patch

When it comes to shopping, I’m a bargain hunter. Sometimes I can wait the two weeks, just to see the item I want drop to 50% off. I won’t invest on pricey pieces unless I feel like I HAVE to have it, and usually if that does happen I end up finding a way to live without it or find something similar. Once such way, are DIY projects. 

I love J.Crew–but I would never drop $100 on this adorable chambray top, even with the cute heart pocket. On a college student budget, a fashionista/o has to improvise and work with what you have…which is a good thing because you should always have your eyes open to be inspired by the world around you. Even the smallest alterations and updates to a piece in your wardrobe can make the biggest difference and will leave you and your bank account happy!

J.Crew= $98
itty bitty bomb way= Under $3

This was so easy and helped me beat cabin fever. I added a patch on the back just for a little more fun. You can also sew on the patches if you’re feeling up for it, or make them actual functioning pockets (I never use front pockets)! 

sun child, you’re a sun child

90s sweater dress, Target earrings, F21 boots and belt

I found this sweater in my mom’s closet a while back and love it. The pattern on this knit sweater is so fun, not to mention the billowy sleeves. This was taken before we were dumped on again…with an additional 12″+ of snow! I’m trapped in the house again, but this time I’m prepared! This is a fake flower I had laying in my room, because Zeus decided that chewing it off would be more suitable. Well, I guess his mischief turned out positive.

Speaking of Zeus, he is the best little cuddle buddy during this weather but he finds it fun to take up half of the bed. Ok, I’m starting to sound like a crazy cat lady! The last photo was me playing around in photoshop of course, it almost reminded me of my favorite dress from the McQueen’s 2010 Resort collection (here) …ok, well at least I wish!

***Note: for those who asked about my “ring” in my last post…well, it wasn’t a ring so shhh ;)

Allen B leather jacket (thanks mama), Target boots, thrifted dress, 
 F21 beanie & tights

I’ve been taking full advantage of this weather, in terms of taking photos. It wasn’t too cold today, but we’re getting dumped on with more snow. This is what I get for wanting so much snow right?! But seriously, this is not good for a busy-body like me.

This has to be one of my favorite dresses, its so long and comfortable. I feel like Morticia Addams (I wish) lounging around. If you couldn’t tell, I was feeling a little edgy and this jacket is so perfect for those days where I’m a little girly and tough. 

I focused my energy and finally did another DIY and I will be posting that soon! Productivity & boredom at its best! I hope you all have a warm and safe weekend!
