Stylin' and Profilin': Zach

Special Blog!

Since Zach (my boyfriend) is always making fun of my facial expressions and stances in my pictures, we decided to switch places. He was going to model his outfit. I must say, he was pretty stylin' lol. He modeled and I took the photos.

Note: He is totally mocking my pictures....fool.

Ladies and Gentlemen without further ado... let me introduce my boyfriend... stylin and profilin... Zachary!

He's a jokster... beware lol

He's a fool... lol

Big Day...

(Tunic and Shoes, Urban Thread. Jeans, Gap.)

November 4, 2008
Dear Diary,
Here is what I wore a few days ago but now for more important matters. For the first time in my life, as a 20 year old, well informed (I might add) woman, I voted in the United States presidential elections. It was incredible to know that all american voters hold the fate of the presidential nominees. History is in the making in so many ways.
"Americans are voting in one of the most historic U.S.
elections. Democrat Barack Obama could become the first African-American
president. Republican John McCain could become the oldest president elected to a
first term. Sarah Palin could become the first woman elected vice president.
Record voter turnout also is predicted.

I know most individuals don't publicize who they voted for, but I'm not most individuals. So I will proudly say who I gave my vote for and why. I voted for Barack Obama not just because he could potentially be the first (mixed) African and White-American to hold the presidential position but because of what he respresents. Barack Obama represnts a new wave of politicans whose focus lies on the people. He represents the unification of the different races around the world. This hope for unification between the people made tangible by the mixture of his skin color. He stands for the rights and political freedoms of the people. He is a beacon of hope for a world starving for it.

Good luck Barack Obama and Joe Biden!

Hiatus No More?

Woooooaa... I ususally start out my entries like this, but darn it this saying finally seemed fitting, "it has been an extremely long time since I have blogged".

School is as usual, extradinarily intense. The architecture program at UF has not changed since last year (as if I was expecting it to). It is hard as hell, but strangely enough I love every minute of it. The only thing I miss doing is my newly favorite pass time...blogging. Anywho, here are my inspirations for the fall/winter. Umm... can anyone say, "I can't wait to dress for fall!" because I surely can.

So in an attempt to celebrate fall's homecoming... I shopped. I shopped so hard, I dropped... I dropped a lot of money. And it felt soo good. I can't wait for the weather to really change (if it ever will... it's Florida). Hopefully, I can find some time to take photos of my outfits. Hopefully...
Best New Fall Color... Yellow

Florals in the Fall... What a noval idea...
We are not in Kansas anymore... Kiera wears red shoes so well

M.I.A...Goodbye Summer

Goodbye Summer...
Here are a few images in remembrance of summer and the birth of my little blog.

Today, I said goodbye to summer and (it's about to get a little personal :) my best friend, who also happens to be my boyfriend. We go to different universities (about 3 hrs from each other) and today, due to Hurrican Fay, I had to say my tearful 'so long'. I shouldn't have cried as much as I did. Oh well! I will see him 2 weeks from now...

I will miss this summer.

But at least I have something to look forward to... decorating my apartment!
On Thursday, I move back up to school and I will dive head first into putting the finishing touches on my room. These interior spaces make me so happy and one can only dream of having a room like this.

As I say goodbye to summer, I wave hello to fall.

MIA...I have been missing in action and I will probably be for a little while longer. School starts next monday (25th) and it will probably require most if not all of my time...

Banana Pancakes and Dreamscapes

Currently, I'm working on getting my FIRST apartment together up at school. All summer I have been dreaming of a unique room primarily draped in rich colors such as yellow, green and turqiouse. Unfortunately, I have been dreaming of a room that I can't quite turn into a physical reality. Don't get me wrong, it is getting there, but it is also taking a bit longer than expected.

So to help me gather my thoughts, I refer to the numerous blogs that provide interior design inspiration. Blogs not unlike the one I happily stumbled across a few weeks ago. Banana Pancakes and Dreamscapes is a collection of witty commentary and beautiful photographs that define my ideal living space. I fell in love with the rooms and items that were featured on this delightful blog. Good thing too, because the author of this blog just so happens to be my roommate!

Take a look for yourself...paradise

Elle UK

I know it seems as though this blog is slowly turning into a shrine to the olsens lol... but it's not lol. This blog was just designed to pay homage to inspirational individuals be it; interior designers, fashion designers or fashionistas. It heavily concentrates on individuals who take risks with their look in a simplistic form. Without further adu, I present you Mary Kate Olsen in Elle UK magazine.

September 2008

This may be a bit irrelevant to this specific post, but have I already mentioned mentioned how much I cannot wait for fall/winter. I have already started gathering images that, for me, describe the perfect fall looks. I cannot wait to post them all...I will probably do it within the next few days or weeks or months... whichever :)

New shirt...

New shoes...

Test driving them. Anywho, I saw this top and thought it was too cute... but unfortunately my photos don't do it justice. Oh, well I still love it.

Salute Your Shorts

The other day, I saw this picture of Victoria Beckham and loved her outfit from the edgy bob to the baggy jeans to the feminine top. She looked so comfortable... so this picture became an inspiration for me.

So with Victoria's outfit in mind, here is what I wore today to go furniture (and even a little clothes) shopping. I stole my little brother's camo shorts and wore them today with a simple tank and my gladiotors.
Oh, and I will let you in on a little inside joke... the big smile today is for my boyfriend. He thinks I should smile more in my pictures lol. There you go Zachary, a smile on my blog... just for you and so is the extra 'scowl' in my last photo.

(Ribbed Tank, Target. Belt, Vintage. Shorts, My brother's. Gladiators, Urbanoutfitters.)

Question: Does anyone remember the 'back in the day' Nickelodeon show Salute Your Shorts? Such a classic and a fitting title!

P.S. Thanks for all your lovely comments...I greatly appreciate them all :)

Jean on Jean Action

(Tank, Gap. Vest, Vintage. Jeans, Express. Sandals, Urbanoutfitters. Bangles, Vintage. Clutch, Vintage.)

Style can be either one or two things: Simple or Complicated. Each can be complex in very different ways and each can be extradinarily beautiful. When pertaining to my style though, I perfer to keep it simple. Less is more in my book, yet that does not mean I am not inspired or in love with the more complicated looks that I have seen. It's all beauty to me...

Anywho, I'm usually not a big fan of the "jean on jean" look, but today I could not resist. I hadn't worn my 70's inspired vest in a while so I thought I would take it out for a spin (check out the back of my vest...too cool hehe). . .So I paired it with some cigarette jeans and called it a day :)

Question: Again, I'm wearing my new favorite shoes, but I am unsure as to what to call them... gladiators or bandage style sandals? I mean, it really does not matter too much, but I've been wondering hehe

Thursday, July 24, 2008


Here is what I wore today in the sweltering heat (wore the sweater at work when it got cold). Nothing ground-breaking... just a tank and shorts.

O yeah, and my sandals that I have been waiting for came in the mail today, so I wore them! YAY

Summer Inspiration Part II

^An substantially upgraded version of Amy Winehouse. I like... I like.

Yeah, sure this model's underwear is totally hanging out... but there is something I find so stylish about this outfit. She low-rides like a pro...
Here are a few pictures and outfits that I simply adore... maybe it can inspire me to wear something other than a tank and sweatpants. It's incredibly hot here and lately I am in a clothing funk. Bounce back Nikki...
