This will be the MVP of my closet.


I really want the Nike AW77 half-zip.  But the Men’s version, not the women’s.

I also want the same but in a reversible jacket form.

Mmm…Nike Men’s hoodies are the best.

And it helps that Manny Pacquiao is the model for it.

i love my fashionable girlfriends.  while i’m mostly still a sweats/jeans/t-shirt kind of girl, i’ve definitely learned from them.

Purdy Ladies

What I’m wearing:

F21 Black & White print pleated skirt, F21 ruffled halter top, F21 wide yellow belt (which roomie lent). also, can’t see it, but i had the most fabulous pouf in my hair courtesy of miss EV.

dinner was at Blue Dahlia in Downtown LA.

  • the place was really cute, with a back patio that was lit up with string lights and japanese lanterns
  • service was pretty awful, with our waiter taking YEARS to take our order & get our orders out.
  • but the wine list is commendable. we ordered A. Mano fiano-greco
  • i ordered the ahi tuna salad which was fabulous — despite the fact that the food came out almost an hour and a half after we ordered it.  sigh.  i swear, i think our waiter was just a spazz.

When we got home, we hung out, pulled out the microwave popcorn, and what else? Watched Sex and the City: the Movie!

love u girls!

So what if I’m wearing Black Tights, with Brown Shoes and a Navy Blazer?  Have I broken some code of fashion where blacks and browns don’t mix, or blacks and navy bring on the blues?  I don’t know.  You tell me.

The shirt is from H&M and was about $24.00.

The blazer is from Forever21 and was about $17.00.

Tights are from the Fashion District in Downtown Los Angeles for about $4.00.

Shoes are Steve Maddens for $89.00 –> but these were a gift from Mom!

The effect of having a fashionable roommate is to make the fashion unable aspire.  I’m still hoping her fashion ability will enable my dormant one.  Or maybe create a non-existent one.  It’s a long shot, but as Merlin sang in the Classic Disney Film, The Sword in the Stone, “It’s up to you how far you go…if you don’t try you’ll never know…”
I know, I know, it’s a cheap shot quoting a cartoon and using a quote that applies to everything…but *shrug* if it works, it works.

So, I went to school on Monday and felt like I ought to wear something NOT jeans and t-shirt (which is what I normally wear.)  Here’s the result:

H&M Black Jumper Dress + Forever 21 Black Woven Belt

H&M Black Jumper Dress + Forever 21 Black Woven Belt

This outfit cost less than $15.  The dress I bought off the H&M sale rack on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving when everything and their mom is on sale) for $5.99 and the belt came with another outfit from F21 that was also on sale for under $10. I topped the outfit off with a dark wash jean jacket from Guess (which I bought my Junion year in high school and still fits — no matter how hard I hoped I would still grow).  The jacket cost $40+ dollars over ten years ago.

Also, it’s awkward to the MAX trying to take pictures of myself, but Roommate says it gets easier in time. I hope so.

However, personality kicked in later that day.  I went home during a break in classes and changed into black Adidas track pants and a black t-shirt.  Ooops…
