velvet skirts and knit shirts

Hi Blogosphere!

These are some pictures from a last weekend thrift shopping trip downtown I did with a friend.
I'm in love with my new high-waisted velvet floral skirt (Can you tell. I totally became a camera whore with it on! By the way...only $6.00!) AND I also love knit cropped sweater I also got, but not as much as a bargain as the skirt, but still $14.00. It was a great day :)

I miss u all!! I am sorry for the rather boring and slow posts lately; I have finals coming up next week, so as usual, school has got me all tied up. Its like a rodeo really: school is the cowboy and I'm the thing being lassoed. I have no choice but to be antisocial this weekend and hit the books. Although, I think that in reality, the only hitting of the books I'll do is my head hitting the book and I pass out (Wow, im really crakin the jokes tonight). Well, I'm off to do homework, but I will find every ounce of time I can to check up on all your blogs and see what you're up to! I'm in the mood to be inspired!

Much love to all. I will be back, promise.

Hey everyone! My weekend is going great...

Friday I went into town with my friend for a nice day (long day!) of shopping.
Saturday my sister came home after being away for 4 months in Barcelona.
Today I am hanging out with my sister cause I'm so glad shes home and doing my homework :/
Monday I'm hopefully going to my friend Zack's house for a party.

I'll completely fill you in on all my lame, but interesting to me, details as soon as I can.
Enjoy your weekends!! Let me know what you're up to :)

OH AND I HEART MOM JEANS!! I gotta find a pair that looks good. Bye!



I woke up at about 11 today after crashing on my bed as soon as I got home from the party. I wish I took pictures of the party, but I stupidly forgot my camera.

The night was...interesting. It was fun though, there was thing inflatable Twister on the lawn out back and there was a band that was really good. And, of course, no party is complete without Rock Band. I rocked the drums.

Peace :)



My latest inspiration! She proves that less is more. Her simplicity and carefree vibe is what makes her stunning. I am going to a party tonight, and I think I might lay off the jewelry for a fresher look.

Hope your having a dandy weekend.
Kisses :)



The cherry blossom girl is a beautiful blog created by the tres tres chic Alix. The freshness and simplicity of her outfits inspire me so much. I don't think I could picture anyone else pulling off these looks.

I might have an outfit post coming soon. Maybe, err, possibly! Nothing as quite as chic as Alix though. I hope you find her as fashion forward as I do.

If not...your kinda a fool.


I heart...

Some of my favorite pictures from various blogs and fashion web spots that I'm just totally in love with.

I been tied up with school as usual. And I still have not got my mom anything for mothers day yet! I might make her a card. I always love making gifts for people over buying them. And I'm sure most of you can agree with me on that, its just more special and personal.

I also though about donating money to Trees For the Future and have trees planted in my moms name. That would be something cute that's also helping the environment.

p.s. green is the new black!

I'll figure something out, I always do ;)
I hope you all are having a relaxing weekend, happy mothers day tomorrow! xoxoxoxoxoxooxo
