Blazer:CostaBlanca; Tanktop:RazzleDazzle; Necklace:Expressions; Bracelets:Random; BallCap:NYstreets
Well I admit I have been rather lazy over the last week; hence the lack of blog posts & casual outfits. It's tough balancing my single/social/school life...
I know this isn't the blog post you all are waiting for, but I promise pictures from Saturdays fashion show are on their way.
I really love the idea of toning down a blazer. Say all you want about my choice of ball team, you can't deny a girl looks good in a ball cap. The purse is a recent purchase and I honestly wear it everyday; who doesn't like a little hippie love.

While I was in Vancouver I realized I am not shy... at all.
I don't really know why I ever considered myself to be shy in the first place.
What led me to this realization was the fact that I approached a lady on a street corner after noticing she had the same scarf as me. It turned into a great conversation and I managed to get a picture out of it. Turns out she is a writer for a travel magazine.
Just goes to show you, you never know who is walking beside you and there is no harm in stepping out of your comfort zone every now and then.

Small.City - The Starving Stylist
I apologize for going MIA on you. I made an impromptu decision to head out to Vancouver, my home away from home, for the weekend. My good friend helped me pull off a wonderful surprise since no one knew I was coming.
It was an amazing 5 days with lots of laughter, fashion & a whole lot of edge. The best part of going back was realizing that nothing has changed and some friendships can pick up right where they left off...
I returned home with some fierce new songs, a new list of outfit ideas and of course loads of photos.

"Some women choose to follow men and some women choose to follow their dreams..If you're wondering which way to go, remember your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn't love you anymore" ---> Lady Gaga [April 2010 Cosmo]
I'm coming back as Lady Gaga in my next life...
Love her/hate her, you can't deny she is fierce. She is comfortable with who she is; I mean who else would dare to wear a nude bodysuit in pubic. I find her style refreshing because it is so different&outrageous.
This girl is on top of her game and she knows how to keep people talking about her. The video for 'Telephone' came out today and it certainly is leaving people speechless.

It's not even Spring & the Fashion world is already looking towards Fall. It's been an exciting past few months with the "Big Four" holding their own fashion weeks all over the world.
I was thrilled to see that one shoulder dresses made a return; especially in bold patterns such as the ones pictured. I would highly recommend investing in one this Spring because they will make a great carry over item to Fall. These dresses make such a statement on their own, but also work well under a great blazer.

FakeFur Vest:LeChateau; Sweater:JoeFresh;
As much as I love Fashion, I have never been one to follow the rules. Lately with the nice weather, I have been asked about my thoughts on wearing white. I would say white bottoms are definitely off limits for the months of January & December.
After that you should get a gut feeling of when/what is appropriate. White jeans are okay when paired with the right thick winter sweater, but keep the white shoes until you see flowers in bloom.
Please do not take this advice and dress head to toe in white; you'll end up looking like the abominable snowman. Your wardrobe should change from season to season. Keep your lighter colors boxed up during the dreary winter months, it gives you something to look forward to when the nice weather hits.

It's true, it was a little ridiculous. It was a time of living the "American Dream" but I'm not saying we should aim for that. I'm not a believer in living the ideal life, however there were a few things I wish carried over into today's society....like greasers ;)
