"Sitting in an english garden waiting for the sun."-The Beatles

All pictures were taken by me with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3
For the last three pictures I used this really cool app called Poladroid. All you have to do is drag and drop your picture into the polaroid camera and a few seconds later it pops the picture back out, and just like a real one, it takes a few minutes to develop! You can download the app here:

The top and skirt you may recognize from two posts ago where I showed some spring pastels. After my class at F.I.T. last saturday I went to American Apparel and picked up Lace Tee in Creme Sunshine($38.00) and the Full Woven Skirt in Midnight Green($38.00).
Thank god tomorrow is friday! 
Thanks for reading!

Back to 'Reality'

I've been off on a little, but much needed hiatus with the blog lately. Anyways let's get back to reality...FINAL SEASON OF THE HILLS and new season of THE CITY premiering tonight! Anyone else ready to indulge in this useless scripted reality? I'm not trashing the show, I love it, but it is really scripted. I think I'm looking forward to The City more to see Olivia try and sabotage Whitney's new clothing line. I think they dress better on The City too.

Whitney's Collection, Whitney Eve, Spring 2012 RTW

I have a few busy weeks ahead of me with state testing, test prep, studying for finals, and tryouts for my high school's kickline team! I'm going to try to post at least once or twice a week, even if its a random picture or something I found. I should have an outfit and new buys post coming soon! 

Thanks for reading!

"Sugar, were going down swinging."

American Apparel Sunshine Lace Tee $38

American Apparel Rigid Corduroy Circle Skirt, $39.00
American Apparel Nail Polish
Cotton/Office/Coney Island
Pack of 3, $15.00

K-SWISS Surf and Sand Hi, $55.00
I'm thinking of these as my spring kicks. What do you think?

I just love spring pastels! The American Apparel skirt is pre-order only for now. I really like the lace T with it though so I'm hoping they won't look to washed out on me if I get them. I used to be obsessed with Fall Out Boy only a few years ago and I finally just started to listen to them again!

-Enjoy the rest of your evening!

"These Big City Dreams are what you're about"-NeverShoutNever

This post is gonna be a quickie! I started my first weekend at F.I.T. and I loved it! I'm taking drawing from inspiration. I'm really not the best drawer but what ever. This will look good on my college record right? Anyways here's what I wore....
I look thrilled right? Hahaha it was so cold and rainy out today!
Top: Top Shop
Skirt: Forever21
Tights: American Eagle
Jacket: Marshalls
Beret: Forever21
Shoes: Doc Martens

I got my Doc Martens last year but I don't really wear them all that often so they give me bad blisters every time I wear them!
More NeverShoutNever anyone?

I've officially started the fourth and final quarter of the school year and the next couple of weeks I'm going to be really busy! I'm definitely not going to delete/shut down the blog so don't worry! I have a lot of ideas for posts but I don't know how often I'll be able to post them.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

"She's so Rock N'Roll and out of my league."-NeverShoutNever

So I went to the sample sale and came back with nothing. Surprising? VERY! I must've tried on 10 dresses and liked about three but they were too dressy for the occasions I need them for. To make this post less depressing I'll share what I bought at the sample sale over the summer and my little collection of Betsey Johnson.

Bought at the Sample Sale over the Summer, this is a sample and did not have tags on it. I paid $15 for it then a few months later I saw it retailed for $245!

I think I got this for $25 at the sample sale but it retailed for $275. This is from her vintage collection
"Naughty or Nice" necklace that I got from the sample sale. I think it was $15 I'm not sure though.
I think this is the prettiest dress I've ever seen! Four years ago when I started thinking about my batmitzvah(even though it was 3 years away) I saw this dress on Betsey Johnson's website. The second I saw it I knew I wanted it. It was so girly and fun to wear especially cus I paired it with my converse.

I bought this dress last spring at an outlet near by. I think it was memorial day weekend and their was a big sale going on and I bought this for a party that I had coming up. I have my 8th grade graduation this year so I'm thinking of wearing this. On the sides this has hidden pockets that I love.

I bought this belt a month ago when I was going to a party where you had to wear all black. I needed some color so I chose this.

Legitimate signature? I think so.
Okay, this is definitely going to sound cheesy, but last year in my Writing Enrichment class we had to right to someone we admire and ask for their signature. So I chose Betsey and wrote to her telling her the story behind my batmitzvah dress and all my admiration for her. This year in I want to say november, she finally sent back this card! I think its a real signature, what do you think?

I bought these sunnies and this necklace last year when I got a gift card to Betsey Johnson as a batmitzvah present.

I bought this at the sample sale last summer for around $5/$10 and saw it retailed last may for $45! I use this makeup bag/clutch every single day and I take it with me everywhere.

This is probably the first bag I have ever owned, I got it around 3 or 4 years ago at Century21. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Betsey is one of my favorite designers and I love all her stuff! I tried posting this yesterday but blogger was being really annoying and wasn't uploading all of my pics. Anyways TGIF! I have done so much state test prep that I really can't take it anymore! I'm off to get some homework done then tonight I'm going to the movies. WOW I almost forgot! Tomorrow is my first  day at my F.I.T. MiddleSchool weekend classes! I have no idea what I'm going to wear cus it's supposed to rain all day :( Enjoy your weekend!

Trouble-NeverShoutNever This is officially my new favorite song :D
