Happy Sunday, and even better happy Oscar's day! I am so
excited to watch it tonight. It is my favorite award show and
the only one that I genuinely care about. Some friends are
coming over for a mini-Oscars party, yay. This outfit is quite
simple, which is actually what I have been craving after
the months of layering. As fun as layering is, sometimes it
is nice to just throw on a top and run out the door. The flats
are also super comfortable. I thrifted them a few months ago,
and I cannot wait to wear them with socks and cute skirts/dresses
this summer!

Hope everyone is have a lovely weekend, and hopefully
a lazy Oscar's Sunday.

Floral Friday

25 February 2011

Happy, happy Friday! I am so happy that the weekend has
arrived. A day full of #FF tweets, my favorite coffee blend at
my favorite coffee shop, and no school/work. I am particular
excited about this Friday, because this week has been quite
stressful academically. Anyways- hooray for the weekend!

This skirt is one of my absolute favorites. I found it at the thrift
store last year where it originally came down to my ankles. I
hemmed it to this short but sweet length and wear it all the
time now. It is so crazy how clothing can be so easily transformed.

I hope everyone has an amazing weekend! Relax and have fun.
Today I leave you all with this feature from Mama's A Rolling Stone about
street style. It is such a neat online magazine, and I feel honored
to be featured! Read the article here.

are not helping one bit. Anyways, for todays post I am going

Spring Feeling

21 February 2011

Before I go any further, let us take a moment and fully understand that
it is STILL FEBRUARY. Yes, I am a fanof sunshine and warmth,
but I live where I do because Iexpect to have a full-on winter that lasts until
at least early March. So winter, please do not leave me yet. I still have tons of
sweaters that have not gotten proper exposure to the world.

On the bright side, I was able to wear the 'Flashes of Style' dress that Modcloth
so generously named after my blog! It is definitely one of the coolest
things that has happenedto me since I have been a blogger. I just love
the criss-cross detail and the dots/floral print combination instantly won my
heart over. It will absolutely be my turn to dress this Spring.
Okay, off I go to study for my biology test this afternoon. School is consuming
my life right now, but these next few days I finally have a lovely break.
I cannot wait to catch up on all of your wonderful blogs! xx

PS- I was featured on Sarah Loves wonderful blog! She has amazing style
and is such a talented artist. Be sure to check her out.

Flashes of Style Q&A!

18 February 2011

First of all, this is one of my new favorite outfits ever! It is so
comfy, and I feel so feminine in it even though it is not a dress.
Which is usually tough for me. I basically cannot take this
soft peter pan collar off!

Okay onto the bigger news. Below
is my first vlog ever. Is it vlog or v-log? I don't even know.
Anyways, I hope you all enjoy it! It's obvious that I was
a little nervous to make it, but I think it turned out okay.
I was not able to answer all of the questions, because I only
answered a few and the video is already almost ten minutes!
I really did not want to bore you all, so I will answer the other
questions in writing in my next post. Enjoy!

NYFW Street Style Faves

By now, all of you fashionista's have most likely already
stalked and are thoroughly informed about the
new styles from NWFW! The A/W shows brought us a lot
of lovely things, and my favorites included Proenza Schouler,
Marc Jacobs, Marc by Marc Jacobs, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Bodkin,
and Rodarte. Because it would simply be wrong to not
dedicate an entire post about fashion week, I have composed this
little snippet of my favorite NWFW street style photos! These
ladies have layered immaculately and have left me craving
mixed prints, new lengths, and surprisingly flats and pig tails.

Sweet as a Peach

16 February 2011

Happy mid-week, everyone! I am so excited to share with you all
that I was featured on WWW's Style Stalker for February. It is
really crazy, because even before I started seriously blogging I had
aspired to be on their Style Stalker feature. So yay and thank you
so much WWW for featuring me. Also, thank you so much for
all of the support I continue to receive on this blog. I appreciate each
and every single one of you and the kind words I hear from you all.
Anyways, the outfit I am wearing today is a little similar to the outfit
in the feature, except the detail on the shirt is a little different. I just
had to purchase the blouse because of the peter-pan collar and ruffle
detail. SO- I will be selling the old peachy pink top in my shop very
soon. Stay posted!

Oh and I am preparing for my vlog, so if you have any more Q & A's
for me, ask away.

Happy Valentines Day, Loves

14 February 2011

Look at me! No tights, and bare legs. Can you believe that after
those two crazy snow storms I am able to wear this spring-like dress?
I just recieved it in the mail from my sponsor, Paint A Dress' Etsy
shop this afternoon. I'm feeling quite festive all of a sudden and
I am going to wear it tonight for my and my boyfriends Valentines
adventure. I am obsessed with the details on this dress. The white
buttons are so beautiful, and the roses are just perfect. Of course
I had to do a detail shot.

Okay, so I am finally mustering up the courage to do a VLOG.
But I need your help! To save me from rambling and getting awkward,
I am going to do a Q & A vlog! So.... game on.

Ask me anything

I will most likely make the post in the next few days or so.
Oh! And of course my NYFW favorites re-cap. Hope you all
are having a fabulous Monday and Happy Valentines day!
