ZEBRA season!

Monday, September 21, 2009 4
Hi All,

I'm looking for a little black (or white) dress to wear to my first black and white ball! I'm extremely excited, but I have no idea where to look. I guess I don't fit the 'every girl' mold because the fashion literature definitely says I should not only have one LBD, but two. I'm way behind the curve! Right now, I'm looking online, but I would love to know some actual stores I can stop in. Please help a sister out! And men, I would love your input on what kind of dress you like to see women in...this is a group project, thx!

I hate getting on here after years of being away, however, I only write when I'm extra excited or confused about something and need the opinion of fellow, fabulous peers!

Now, to the real reason why I'm writing this fine day (I'll be short and sweet): I have to admit that I have fallen prey to the Charlotte Russe monster! The clothes, um...not really my thing, but I goes nowhere else for my accessories, bomb diggity (how was that for hood?)!

I was in the store a few weeks ago to buy another pair of the fabulous earrings I already own, but this time for my little sister who recently turned 8, and is just as grown as me I might add. Anyone that's already hip to the CR bomb, you should already know that you can always come out of there with two pieces of jewelry for 8 bucks. I scooped up the old earrings for lil sis and grabbed a new, fun pair for my weekend dinner party. Got to the register, happy to have found what I was looking for and decided to give the ring basket on the front counter a quick look-through.

Wasn't I happy I did because it was then I spotted a small sign behind the registers stating a 10% discount to all students and military personnel. I asked the cashier what I had to do to receive the discount, and she told me just show my school idea. ALL STUDENTS receive 10% off, EVERY PURCHASE! Now, I know 10% is just tax, at least in Chicago, but during this recession that the rest of the world is going through (seeing as I'm not participating), I thought this would be most helpful to any and everyone looking for a break...Stop on by and be on the lookout for anymore of these "small signs"! Happy shopping ;)

Mental Break

Saturday, September 5, 2009 1
As you can see there's definitely been a lack of updates, usually it'll be cause I'm busy etc. but I've just been might be a bad case of writers block. I feel like I've just lost my motivation...with getting ready to move, applying for grad school, and life in general has got my mind in a totally different place. I'm definitely not depressed just...blah. Ever had one of those moments?

So I'll call this hiatus a mental break. I promise I won't leave you guys hanging for too long but please bear with me as I'm going through this awkward transitioning phase. I still appreciate everyone's support and please continue to support and once I get over this I'll continue to bring you posts. :)
