you guys have to forgive me for the lack of posts lately - things have been going at roughly 100 mph lately! most notably - fashion week AND i'm 12.5 days away from taking my GRE (in preparation for grad school!) and i've been studying like a mad woman. i know i'm probably over-doing it - since it's really not beyond 9th grade math (and i do have an engineering degree....that's like a bajillion semesters of math), but you know...fortune favors the prepared mind.
as a result - my outfits, admittedly, especially on the weekends, have been erring on the side of yoga pants. please don't judge - 4 hour stretches of vocabulary words & math problems.... ugh. but i've tried to keep it up during the week!
as if! totally channeling Cher Horowitz. didn't even drink coffee that day. i want to be 5'10", like Cindy Crawford. skirt, unknown (very old), long oxford, Target. sweater, J.Crew. tights, Wolford. flats, J.Crew
eehh a studying look. not great, but still cute & functional. jeans, Banana Republic. sneakers, Jack Purcell. tshirt, Free City. sweater, J.Crew.
an experiment in layering. leather leggings, Kova & T. striped dress, T by Alexander Wang. draped cardigan, T by Alexander Wang. hacking blazer, J.Crew. motorcycle boots, Frye.
what i'm listening to this week...
- Everlong(acoustic version) - Foo Fighters
- Sweat - Snoop Dogg vs David Guetta
- Skinny Love - Bon Iver
- Barton Hallow - The Civil Wars
- The Build Up - Kings of Convenience
- Bad Girls - M.I.A.
- Boys & Girls - Pixie Lott
- My Love is Your Love - Whitney Houston(RIP girl!)
- Colorblind - Leona Lewis
so fashion week - right? it was a week of very technical fabrics, and a lot of red, Asian (Year of the Dragon, perhaps?) influences. lots of red, lots of Asian architecture in the clothes, a lot of knee high boots, and fur accents allll over the place. also, the hemlines are still below the knee, which i think is surprisingly and refreshingly super sexy! i actually particularly liked the seeming return of the "dandy" on the runway - the proper lady, even perhaps in a sharply tailored pantsuit a la Ralph Lauren. lots of great artistry this week! (the alien chic minimalism of Calvin Klein was a particular favorite..expect more later)
so it's almost March - spring is nearing (it doesn't even feel like winter ever arrived, right?) and so much is coming up. like i said..GRE, then school applications, and then the waiting game. oy vey. spring is always that time of rebirth - and i've been feeling it more than ever this year. even my horoscope (whatever. astrologyzone.com
is the best ever and i'm not ashamed. i love it) says this year will bring about things that will change the course of my life
for at least the next 17 yeas - so it's hard not to feel that energy, you know?
fortune favors the prepared mind. fortune favors the bold. fortune favors the brave. well-behaved women seldom make history... and all that. you know....
