I Found My Long Lost Oxfords!

Yet another past purchase that I regret giving black and white oxfords I brought my senior year of high school. I went to a private high school (uniforms and all). So for us fashion savvy students we got creative through our accessories...including shoes. This weekend I found a very nice replacement for my high school kicks. At Bloomingdales I found the above Boutique 9 oxfords. Not only do I love the stained toe and back to give them a long lost vintage look, they are extremely comfortable (wore them all day Saturday!). It didn't hurt that this weekend was Bloomingdales Friend's and Family Sale too so I got an extra 20% off...nice!

This is my homework???....awesome!

My new fave thing to do while on the internet....polyvore!!! The cool thing is the picture above is my homework for an intro to styling course...nice!

No clogs coming my way…

One trend that I cannot commit to this Spring 2010 season is clogs! Don’t get me wrong ladies (and gents! work it), I think many of this season’s styles are absolutely adorable but I just can’t pull them off. My first time around with the clog trend didn’t work out due to my miniature ankles as a teenager. I did own a pair regardless of my petite below the knee frame but I probably shouldn’t have. (I know you guys wish I had a picture of that! haha). And though I’ve grown physically and my fashion sense has matured, I still can’t bring myself to exaggerate and expose my scrawny ankles with those chunky heels. However I encourage those with substantial calves, ankles and confidence, to march to your own drum and don the famous footwear of our pioneering Dutchmen! Check out the awesome selection of clogs Bloomingdale's is offering for the season (pictured in photos above).

Make it POP!

Anyone that knows me knows that I love the color blue. No only do I like the color but it also looks very good on me J Check out the photos of me in my birthday outfits this past January. And that’s birthday outfits….not my birthday suit! I love using a color like cobalt blue to accent an outfit. Colors like blue, red, fuchsia, and orange are great ways to make an outfit POP!
