Subtly Colorful Sunsets

When the hair tie broke lol

Bonjour! Bonjour! Today, I am sooo sooo happy and I have no clue why! lol I've been all smiles for the last week or so and I really can't say that theres been a reason. Hey! Who am I to complain! lol
It's just interesting how I have a cold and a 10-page paper to write for my Anthropology class (which, by the way, I haven't started yet) and I'm still all smiles and zero panic. I guess I just woke up on the right side of bed today (and for last 8 days)!

Anyway, as you all can tell I am wearing my new babies (the nude booties) with my outfit. :) I was so excited when I got them I just had to wear them with one of my looks this week. I decided to tie my hair up for this particular look but then the hair tie broke and I didn't have extras so I had to let my hair down. It was kinda funny! We worked through it though and now i present to you two different looks - hair up and hair down. Take your pick! haha

 I am wearing my booties with a shirt from H&M and a maxi skirt. H&M has a way of surprising me a lot - this season (and the last) they seem to have very unique ( and on-trend) pieces, like the shirt I'm wearing. I was just drawn to it and it fits in perfectly with the trends this Spring. You all should make a trip there and patiently scour through the store, I guarantee you will find something that will make you go "Wow!" :) ANDDD Marni for H&M is coming soon! So keeps your eyes and ears out :)

Right now, I need to concentrate on the blank page which is soon to be a complete 10-page paper :). Wish me luck!

Au Revoir Mes Amis!

  1. Hey Marcelle,

    Love your blog - it's really great.

    I noticed that you recently started it, and I think you should consider moving it to Tumblr. On tumblr you could add "tags" to describe your

    You could also submit all your pics / posts to Black Fashion (http://blackfashion.tumblr.com/), which would quickly allow you to strengthen your following and userbase, as your images would get reblogged and spread like Wildfire. You could then link everything back to your blog, even if you decide that you don't want to move it to Tumblr in the end.

    Let me know if you're interested and have questions - Good luck!


    1. Hey Dorian!
      Thank you so much :) :) i'm glad you like it!

      I actually do have a Tumblr (http://live-love-vogue.tumblr.com/)and I publish all my posts on my tumblr too. I didnt know about Black fashion and I will definitely utilize it. I guess I opted for blogger as a main blog because I could use google adsense for ads on my page and google analytics to analyze the traffic on a daily basis. But i do have a few more questions. Does you MIT email address still work? If not, email me (check my blogger profile) and I will email you back with the questions! Thank you again sooo much for the help! It's much appreciated :)

  2. Girrrl forget that paper! Go get more looks together and post them! :D Kidding, do your work and keep being fabulous :*

  3. loving that h&m blouse, the print is absolutely amazing! haven't been in there in awhile (oh school and the mountain of work it brings...), will have to make a stop in!
