Leather Fringe, Emerald and Gloom

I think from this post and from a lot of my previous ones you can make certain assumptions about me: I like leather and I like those shoes. If you did make those assumptions, you are completely correct lol.

I have a really bad caffeine buzz right now so my thoughts are everywhere lol. I think I have had maybe 4 large cups within the last 3-4 hours....yea....I'm an caffeine-aholic :/ So everything makes sense, I;m going to number my thoughts for the day lol. Here goes:

1. I don't know whether it's because the weather is changing or if I'm just changing but my wardrobe seems to be gravitating towards the dark side. I took a step back this morning and realized I have so much black, dark red, leather...dude.....what's going on? lol.

2.Zara had that EXACT same skirt in the spring for almost $100 and guess what? Now Forever 21 has them for $30. If you are feeling it I say go get them like NOW because there was only one left in my size and that was last week. Speaking of which, I havent done a trend on a budget post in a while. My apologies; it seemed to have slipped my mind but no worries I should have a couple up this month.

3. This is my crazy hair when I haven't straightened it. One of the many times you will see it in this state this semester. So please dont judge me *in Chris Brown voice* lol

4. A friend of mine is in a iHeartRihanna contest on twitter so PLEASE RETWEET HERE so he can meet her <3 Thank youuuu! :) I hope it's not too late 

5. I keep forgetting to put this here. I have a Facebook Page now for DRS so if you want to keep up with my posts LIKE IT please  and tell your friends about it :) Click HERE

6. I should be a having a give-away soon *YAY* and this week you will be meeting my lovely photographer and makeup artist from New Orleans

7. Lastly, a little word about the Summer-to-Fall transition. Since the weather is still manageable, use this time to update your fall/winter wardrobe and deal with the occasional chill with an oversized sweater over any summer outfit. A nice leather jacket and tights should help you into fall.

Now back to le books, I have a 20-page lab report due tomorrow, topped off with an exam, oh and did i mention I have a presentation (which I'm not prepared for) on Tuesday and another exam on Thursday and problem sets due....FUN! -_____-  If anyone wants to skype....i should be up till 5am...or so? lol

Wish me luck and keep me in your prayers

September, it was real!

That Pop of Color

 Two somewhat different outfits, two somewhat different pops of color. I couldn't decide which way I wanted to go with this look - the neons shoes or the red lips? All i knew was that i didnt want to do both at the same time....just too much pop, no? So here's a sampling of both, you can decide which one you like best.

 REMIX! lol......The Red Lips :)

 HI :)

How could I go an entire TWO weeks in fall without incorporating leather in my look. :)

Today I had an AMAZING shoot with Ramzi. It was sooooo COLD but it was all worth it :) I can't wait to show you all some of the pictures. Also, this week I will be putting up a post with special guest features from New Orleans so get excited :)

Now back to work :)

The Meadow Dress

 I'm going to be short today since I have a pile of work to do. Oh, the life of college student!

I saw this dress at H&M and my jaw dropped. There were only three of these on the rack and I swear my heart skipped a beat. Fortunately, there was one dress left in MY SIZE! I was so happy that night, I decided to walk all the back to campus lol. This form-fitting midi, has this amazing graphic print at the bottom of the sleeves and the dress itself -perfect for a night out with le girls or on date and even for a formal. I guess the print is a meadow or swamp or creek or.....i don't know, it's just pretty and I love it.

Leather for Fall


I changed into flats as sort of a back-to-school / walking-around-campus look :)

Today it was announced that the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is THE BEST university in the WORLD! I am so very proud to attend an institute of such caliber. YAY! :) Go MIT!

ANYWAY, because I was oh so happy I decided to post something today. As some of you can tell, Leather is one of those things I LOVE. I really can't count the number of leather  or leather -looking items in my closet. When I saw those pant and THOSE SHOES (Gold and Studded perfection with a lady-like twist) and I was like, "MINE!" lol. Plus, it's actually getting pretty chilly here :/ so it's about time we all start preparing for next season.

I still have one more post from New Orleans which will go up end of the week AND I plan on introducing you all you Janine Joffe and Maria Barreda (my wonderful photographer and Makeup Artist in New Orleans) next week so keep an eye out lovelies :)

Happy studying everyone!

Off to office hours :)

Yours Truly,

Before Isaac Hit

Ok this post was supposed to be put up the week Hurricane Isaac hit Louisiana and it wasn't because well...I had to evacuate. I made sure I slept through the entire thing lol. This was my last weekend on New Orleans and ALL the other interns had left so I decided to go back to the French Quarter just to look around, eat some beignets and say my goodbyes.

First week of school is over and I have to say, I am actually happy to be back. This semester is definitely going to extra busy so I wont be putting up as many posts as I usually do so sorry in advance.

I have to get back to work now though

Goodnight Lovelies :)

Yours Truly,

White on Labor Day

I AM BACK IN BEAN TOWN Y'ALL! (I had to bring some of the south up north with me lol)

It's been a VERY busy three days here. Today, was crazy busy. I had to register for classes, a meeting with my advisor, the shoot, lunch with mes amies, not to mention moving and unpacking plus I lost my phone for like an hour ( made my life lifeless for a moment). Anyway, it's not yet the day after labor day so I guess it's ok to wear white, right?

Anyhu, THAT JACKET made me so happy for like an hour lol. I sound like a shopaholic.....ok maybe I am one  -_- lol. As i said before, leather is completely in this pre-fall/fall and the fact that it's denim AND leather just made it perfect for the summer-fall transition. You can just plop it on any of your summer dresses in preparation for Fall.

Happy Day-After-Labor-Day!! :)

Yours Truly,


PS: I really miss you Janine and Maria :) :)
