I love fashion, I love clothes and jewelry and bags and all the things that come with fashion. I love looking at magazines and I admire a lot of the fashion- but more as art than as something I would actually wear. I look for ways to take what I see in fashion and make it more practical and wearable, but I don’t bust my ass over it.

I’m never going to wear floral print goucho pants with 5 inch stilettos and a satin blazer. I have to walk around on campus. I’m never going to wear a quarter inch wide rainbos braided belt with frayed high-waisted shorts and a sailor hat. It’s normally pretty cold and damp here. Shit like that looks cool to me in the magazines, on models, in photos shot in artsy fartsy ways. It also looks cool online where so many bloggers seem to have a well developed sense of style and knowing what’s on trend- but also know how to balance that with what looks good on them.

When I see it on the street, honestly…which I do sometimes, god bless those brave souls….the wearer usually looks ridiculous and extremely uncomfortable.

To each their own though. I like pretty things, comfortable things, wearable things, layers, sparkles, and cute shoes. I don’t think style has to be cutting edge/italian vogue/totally avant garde to be awesome 🙂

i love me some polyvore, especially when I can take a set like this:

So handed in my women’s lit midterm today- a few pages on each text we’ve read so far. It wasn’t too bad to write in little bits over the weekend, but I do think that the selections I chose to write about from the books don’t cover all the bases I want to. We shall see how it goes.
So we are starting Sandra Cisneros’ Woman Hollering Creek and Persepolis….I don’t know what I think of either one yet.
SO MUCH HOMEWORK TOMORROW, but I’m excited to have a baby girl and mommy day….there’s a slight chance I’ll go jewelry shopping for a navy blue and leather top I got, but I have to make sure I get some of these assignments done first.
Hubbie and I were looking at my transcripts today and I have like 3 more required courses to take and then after I get the Russian out of the way, I HAVE MY B.A.!!!
I can’t believe how long I’ve been working at it and its finally here! YIPEEEE. I want a job- any job, IDFC. I just want to be an adult and work and contribute to the household so we can buy a damn RV. 🙂

Mom is visting Sissy in L.A. She’s stuck in sissy’s apartment while she’s at work, so she’s entertaining herself by watching Breaking Bad LOL.
All day I’m getting texts like this:

-HANK JUST KILLED TUCO!

-“I AIN’T NO SKANK!”

LMFAO. My mom is cool.
