Off I go

21 September 2009










So it's a day before I leave for school and I am going absolutely C-R-A-Z-Y.
I'm pretty sure I've checked my luggages about one hundred times and I
have definitely ran back and forth from probably all of the rooms
in my house, making sure I have not forgotten anything. To an outside
observer I most likely look nuts. This outfit photo above is most definitely
from last night when I was in a calmer, less frantic, state of mind. This rosette
skirt is one of my absolute favorites. I love feeling so feminine in it. My hair was
most definitely inspired by Alexander Wang's Spring 2010 hair stylings. To be honest,
it was probably my favorite part about the show.

I leave for Ireland tomorrow at 3:00 central time, and I will be arriving
in Ireland Wednesday morning (for a few days until school starts).
I'm anxious/nervous/feeling feelings I've never felt before. The blog
should be updated very shortly though, as I will indeed have my computer
and internet in my hotel in Ireland.

Anyways... Good bye America!

I loved the hair too, I really hate my hair for being too short to braid. definitely getting extentions as soon as my natural hair is long enough to blend them in. Oh, and I totally relate to the going away to school stress, I'm feeling the same way right now. You're so lucky to be going to London!

leen said...

your skirt is sooooo cute i love it!

Hiya bonnie i'm new on here but realy like your blog and have been through some of your posts, and looked at your various styles which look realy good on you! Im from England and live near birmingham i read that your going to be living in London for a while in Camden, Ive been to camden town lots of times and its a great place to shop, i find that you can find the best buys in camden town market on a saturday morning, they have beautiful little unique things like bags, accessories, clothes and nearly anything your heart desires, :]. The obvious places like oxford street are always abit expensive but the little boutiques are great for them one off finds! Anyway i hope this has helped and look forward to hearing about how you got on in England in your blogs, have fun!:] And P.S wrap up warm it's starting to get very cold here now!!

the baggy t-shirt turns the possible goodness of the skirt into a frumpy excuse for an ensemble.

blorange dice said...

oo la la! you know how i love a good side style on any head of hair. you look beautiful (:

and i forgot about that skirt!!!!! best ever. best ever.

love you! and miss you. haha, i'm such a broken record, but i don't care. can't wait to talk to you again soon!

blorange dice said...

p.s. oh my gosh, anonymous. how are those rude comments helping anyone? please don't waste your time and use your energy to post on the blogs you actually like. if you don't like flashes of style, just look elsewhere! jeez.

Jenna said...

Ohhh you are going to have so much FUNNNN!

Love yor rosette skirt, and you pulled off the Alexander Wang hair beautifully. =]

Anonymous said...

is the point of a fashion blog not to receive feedback? just because i didnt say \"omg i love ur clothes\" like every other cliche comment before me doesnt mean i cant share my opinion. if she just wants to hear how much other superficial people like her clothes that seems like an insecurity problem and cry for attention to me.

Stain On My Red Shoes said...

i can see why the skirt is your absolute favorite. it's pretty! can't wait to hear about ireland!

Carissa said...

girl, you look super lovely. I love the simplicity in your outfit :)

I want to tie my hair like yours tomorrow! So pretty.

Claire said...

You look so cute! The skirt looks amazing.
Have fun in Ireland!

kateasaurus-rex said...

Christen said...

You are ROCKING that braid! I wish my hair was long and thick enough to pull it off like you do. Phenomenal :)

Sylvia said...
