Glass Bottles



Hello! I'm home right now for Easter and my wardrobe has left me pretty uninspired. So during one of my breaks from cleaning out my closet I made these little vases out of some old wine bottles my mom gave me. It was also a good way off getting off my computer for a bit. Instructions are after the jump.

Turn Back Time





Peplum Top: H&M Boyfriend Jeans: Gap Shoes: G.H. Bass & Co Nail Polish: Topshop in Hidden Treasure


Hello! For my birthday one of my friends got me this awesome time turner necklace and I instantly knew I wanted to feature it in a post. The necklace is so cute, but a bit of an awkward length depending on how many low cut tops you have. Despite that, with something like this peplum top it works so nicely with the gold in the front and the gold zipper in the back. Receiving this necklace kind of coincided with the news that the Harry Potter film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is going to be a trilogy. This news doesn't particularly excite me because I'm kinda over the the whole 'everything needs to be a huge trilogy franchise' thing (it worked for the last Harry Potter book because that represented a whole generation and really we needed that closure but after that any other movie thats done that just makes me go blah). Either way I'll most likely end up seeing them all simply because I'm curious and wholeheartedly from the potter-head generation so I'm dedicated for life. 
I hope you have a great week!

Space Invaders

Spring Wishlist



Blue dress, $53 / Tee and Cake red top / American Eagle Outfitters black jacket / River Island high-waisted jean shorts, $50 / Pixel Bird Print Top Koshka / Zara leather shoes / Mini zip bag / COLOR REVOLUTION

Hello! I've been having some pretty winter like weather recently, but hopefully spring is on its way. In the mean time I've been lusting over spring and summer clothes and my procrastination has inspired this post. Like every other season I'm excited to purchase some new clothes as well as bring back some old ones from storage, but I'm particularly thrilled now because I think I've got a clearer vision of what I want my style to be. I think now's the time I can truly start rebuilding my closet from the mess that was high school. Let's hope that works out, but for now here's my wish list:

Blue Dress: I was never a big dress wearer but I've been falling in love with so many recently. This one is just all around great. The color, the unexpected zipper, the preppy touch of the collar. I've been eyeing up some floral, flowy frocks as well.

Leather Jacket: I've been meaning to diversify my coat collection beyond more than just function, so of course the long quest for the perfect leather jacket for me has begun.

T-Shirts: I can't resist a good tee especially when it relates to me. One of my favorite sodas and a print that reminds me of Space Invaders Galactica - it's a no brainer. Plus they are easy to throw on over shorts or a nice skirt.

Backpack: I'm not really sure whether to call this a holographic or reflective or whatever print but it reminds me so much of my childhood and it's quite possible I might buy everything with this print on it.

High Waisted Shorts: I've official become obsessed with anything high waisted.  As for shorts I prefer a darker, sleeker pair to the the typical light and cut-off style.

Buckle Heels: With all of the practical college shoes I've been wearing recently I miss heels a lot. This pair is perfect for me to get my fix, plus they seem pretty wearable so no major pain.

Sunglasses: I love these sunglasses!! I'm seriously hoping I can find a cheaper alternative soon.

That's all for my wishlist. I hope you have a great week! :)

Seize the Day



Tee: H&M  Pants: Gap  Belt Bracelet: H&M

Hello! I didn't intend to have two posts back-to-back with star wars shirts, but I'm not going to complain. I took advantage of the one nice day we had last week with a bright and playful outfit. I was wearing nude colored flats, but they were hurting my feet a lot! My feet need to stop fluctuating between two sizes. Do yours do that?

Birthday

Hello! Last weekend I had my birthday, so I treated myself to a trip to the Guggenheim Museum and a walk through central park with some friends.


The museum was like no other I've been to. The architecture of the place is one of the most interesting aspects of going, and the openness made it easier to not lose my friends. I practically liked the Carrie Mae Weems exhibit Three decades of Photography and Video. Her views on the topics of modern women and African Americans were very interesting and the way she portrayed it through photography specifically was striking. Go check it out if you can, I enjoyed it a lot.

Some of My Favorite Things

Hello! The fashion weeks (or fashion month) consists of me constantly being on style.com and avoiding my homework as much as possible. By the time Paris comes around I usually have to cut back and come back to reality and take care of all the things I've avoided, but I still think it's worth it. I was going to mention my favorite part of the entire month on my roundup but I decided it deserved it's own little post. 


When I looked through Rodarte's show for the first time and saw the Star Wars images I freaked out. A piece of clothing that is well made, unique, fashionable and includes something super nerdy that I love is my dream and I couldn't believe I was actually looking at it.

Not only one but two shows using Star Wars images? Be still my heart! I especially love the blouse, it reminds me of the Vadar pillow I have. The Preen by Thornton Bregazzi show mashed soft femininity with the harsh robotic like structure of Darth Vadar's helmet beautifully. 



With all of these awesome Star Wars pieces I had to break out my dark side t-shirt. I've also recently become obsessed with these pants. They are way more wearable then I thought disco pants, and pants like them, would be. As for the runway pieces, I hope this unexpected pop up means there will be more clothing that references some of my favorite nerdy things. And with that I'll leave you to soak in the awesomeness. Hope you have a great weekend!

Quick Take







Hello! Here are a few quick pictures of a day spent in the city about a week ago. I really enjoy easy, calm days like this because they are so far away from where I am now. My spring break, where I was suppose to be productive, ended up with me really sick. So, these pictures are up a little later than I wanted them to be, but I've got a lot of homework and medicine to get to. I'll resurface soon enough. I hope you enjoy your week!
