Currently Craving – Back-to-School Fashions

back-to-school-college-3

Ahhh! It’s that time of year again; back-to-school! No more late nights, road trips and movie nights, it’s time to get back to the books, studying and forgetting that you ever had a social life. Summer came and went in the blink of an eye, and if you’re like me, you’d do anything to have another week or two of summer relaxation. Then again, a part of me, is ready to stand in front of my closet and pick out an outfit for the first day of school. Yes, even as a college senior, I still get excited about what to wear on the first day back. I know I’m not the only one out there.

The first day of class is always scary, especially if you have no idea where you are going. For those who may be starting their 2014-2015 school year starting for some next week, here are some outfits that will have you looking and feeling good on your way to class. You will definitely get an ‘A’ in style on the first day, even if you have no idea where you are going!

Outfit #1: Laid back and Comfy

With this particular outfit, instead of wearing the sweater, you could wear the wear a white tee and have the sweater around your waist for when it gets cold. Unless you live in windy cites, like Chicago, then you should wear the sweater and a shirt underneath it so you won’t freeze to death.

Outfit #2: Preppy meets Boho

Are you a Pretty Little Liars fan? If so, then you know this outfit has Spencer Hastings written all over it!

Outfit #3: Minimal Fashionista

Outfit #4: The Girl Next Door:

This is a girly, yet simplistic outfit for the girl who doesn’t go out of her way just to look cute. Keeping it simple with a watch and a pair of sparkly flats, she’s all set!

Outfit #5: California Glamour Girl

It’s still summertime, so taking advantage of pastels and bright colors is the way to go whether it be with skirts or dresses. Accessorize with different kinds of jewelry, aqua would be my go to color with this coral look. If you aren’t looking to be a “California Glamour Girl”, try adding leather accessories to give this look some edge.

Outfit #6: Sporty Urban Chick

This look is for a girl who loves her vans and isn’t that into shopping. If you love tribal prints, this look is for you! Keep the accessories to a minimum; all you need is a pair of skinny jeans, a tee, and your vans and you’re all set!

Outfit #7: Hanna Marin

Another reference to Pretty Little Liars, this look has Hanna Marin written all over it; girly patterns and purses. Wanting to be comfortable during the day, a pair of white chucks will complete this outfit.

Mad Men’s Mad About Fashion


I hope you all watched the Mad Men season premier on Sunday. If not, please go watch it. That show is so amazing. The plots and the writing are great, and keep me locked in. There is so much going on in the story, but it isn’t like Lost or True Blood where it is hard to keep up if you haven’t watched the other seasons. I do suggest you watch the other seasons, but only because it is so good.

Anywho, I decided to make Polyvores of the show’s three main leading ladies. You have Betty Draper, the ideal housewife. Joan Holloway is the femme fatale who happens to be conflicted about her role in society. Then you have Peggy Olsen, the innocent copywriter. I identify with her the most because she is just trying to make it and move up in her career.

First up is Betty Draper

Next is Joan Holloway

Last but not least Peggy Olsen

Just for poops and hah hahs is my Mad Men makeover, which can be done here.

Progress, Progress, Progress…I’m integrating Sterling Cooper Y’all!

A New Obsession


If you are just getting over your addiction to Polyvore, don’t try Looklet. It is basically like Polyore except you can dress real models like paper dolls. I am so addicted right now. I really didn’t need anything else to take up my time. The picture above is of my first try. I think I did pretty good. The last one is the second one I did, and looks like how I dress on a regular basis. I am spending way too much time on this site. Time to log off.

The Original M.I.A.


Neneh Cherry is the original M.I.A. She caused a stir by rapping onstage while preggers way before M.I.A. did it. I remember when the song “Buffalo Stance” first came out, and I was singing about gigolos like I, a toddler, knew what a gigolo was. This song is still awesome now. If you don’t remember her, then you may remember her brother Eagle Eye Cherry and his song “Save Tonight.” Photo from NPG.

La Roux

I am so excited about this new singer. La Roux and her signature haircut are amazing. I wonder how much product does she have to use each day. Her music and music videos are so 80s-tastic its crazy. I said on twitter the other day that the 80s caught the flu and has been throwing up every since 2005 but I am totally ok with that because I love the 80s. I guess that is why I like La Roux so much.
Here is a polyvore I did based on her look:

Here is her newest video for , what I think is her 3rd single, “Bulletproof”:

Here is her second single “In For the Kill”:

Spring 2009 Fashion Trends

There are too many spring fashion trends to count. How are you suppose to count all the trends that 100s of designers put each spring? Well you start with what colors stood out. For some reason, the only colors that popped were light grays, pinks, creams, and yellows. Jeans could range anywhere from skinny skinny jeans to wide boyfriend jeans. Spring dresses will be light and airy with lots of ruffles. Also look for oversized accessories from huge purses to huge necklaces. As the spring cool turns into the spring heat, jackets will be de rigueur for anyone who wants to layer a look, especially jackets with a slim fit and cuffed sleeves. Last but not least, structured heels are still a must.
