Israel, here I come!

Hey guys...umm long time no blog? With studying for finals and packing, I am way too busy to do anything...and too lazy.

Basically, schools out, and summer is here! But I am going to be away with no internet access for 9 weeks. I am going to 4 weeks of sleepaway camp, and then I am going to Israel for 5 weeks! I am definately going to take tons of pictures and buy a lot of cool stuff there, and I am determined to bring back some Israeli fashion magazines.

The dress I am wearing in this picture is a tube dress I made in my sewing class. The pattern is like one of those hawaiian louau (sp?) shirts and so I added my seashell belt to make it more beachy. You like?

Well, I'm off to more packing! See ya in September xD

100 degrees? Heat wave!

Today it was 100 degrees. And to think there was a day last week when it was in the 50s! Global warming is becoming more real to me every day... =[

While many a child were suffering in the smoldering heat, I was sitting in nice air-conditioned classrooms. When I was in middle school, none of the classrooms had air conditioning. Most high-schools do. After pondering this, I came to the conclusion that high-schoolers are stinkier than 5th graders under intense heat (oh, hormones).

To the applause of many students, it was announced during last period today that we will have a half day tomorrow due to "extreme weather conditions". Like an anti-snow day? I guess the reason that it is a half day is because it doesn't get too hot until around noon anyways xP.

We are in the homestretch, people. Just 2 more weeks of hell until wonderful summer comes along!

The skirt that I am wearing in todays outfit was a hand-me-down I received when I went to France when I was 8 (half of my family lives there). Skirts like these are typical of the South of France, and they are very beautiful (and one-size-fits-all, so it still fits me!).

"weren't vests a WINTER trend?!?"

I GOT NEW SHOES!!! YAY!! Unfortunately I don't have good heel-walking skills so I can't wear them to school (I just put them on for the pictures xD). The are way too tall, haha. My first pair of real heels...its about time.

My outfit isn't too interesting today...I was in a simple mood so I chose simple clothes.

Its weird...I've noticed that many style/fashion bloggers have an interesting sense of humor in their blogs, such as Rumi or Belle. I am a really funny person. But it is hard for me to be funny when I write. I am good at improv and stuff like that, but there isnt much of a way to get that into writing. Any suggestions on how I can make my blogs funnier?

Today I stayed home from school and was in my pajamas all day, remote in hand, watching crazy talk shows and soap operas. Fun. I do, however, have these photos from yesterdays outfit. They aren't very good photos because I was in a rush to head to the movies (I saw Sex in the City! THE CLOTHES WERE AMAMAMAMAMAZING).

I know, I know. I wear the same shoes like every day, blah blah blah. The problem is, I am very picky when it comes to shoes, and usually when I do find the right pair, they are too expensive (at least $60). I would buy shoes online, but past experiences have been frustrating and costly (shoes were too small/big/ugly-in-person, had to send them back, yadda yadda yadda).

Speaking of shoes, I bought these beautiful cowboy boots on Ebay a while back that ended up being too small and I couldn't return them. They are so pretty that I didn't want to give them away, and I almost chopped of my toes just so they would fit (exaggerations). Finally, I am ready to part with them and I just listed them on Ebay today, for $20. Its a really good price considering I bought them for $60 (crazy I know but at the time I was willing to blow all my money for them). They are vintage, so if you are interested, you can click here or you can email me at Auction ends on Sunday, so bid today!

Okay, I'm done with my sales pitch now.

Alexander Wang for Uniqlo

Oh. My. God.
One of my favorite designers, Alexander Wang, who had a steller show at New York Fashion Week for his Fall/Winter 08 collection has made a collection of 8 pieces for Uniqlo! The price range is $30-$100, and the Uniqlo in NYC began selling them on May 30th. If you dont live near the city, dont worry! Many people have already begun selling some of these clothes on Ebay!

Though it is still a little pricey, there is one dress in the collection priced at $40 that I am rather interested in splurging on. Belle, let me know if you are interested in taking a shopping trip to check it out =P

Also, while I was researching, I found that there is going to be an Alexander Wang Sample Sale in NYC on June 21-23. Obviously, it will still be ridiculously expensive, but I still think that it would be cool to go see the designs in person, take pictures, and maybe even try them on xP

Jumpsuits with heels..

Last weekend I was at a HUGE Forever21 in New Jersey and I bought this adorable denim romper (without trying it on; the line for the dressing room was ridiculous) for $30. When I got home and tried it on, not only was it too small (my torso is too long =[), but the friends who I was with said that I looked like a janitor. After lots of reasoning, I decided that I am going to part with the jumpsuit and return it as soon as I can...but first I had to get some pictures in it..hehe. It might not look too small on me in the pictures, but trust me; it is.

Oh, and last night I made a chictopia account! You can check it out here.
