in the spotlight


dress, Guess. shoes, Nine West. headband, Gap. jewelry, custom made.


I'm working hard these days, and I'm thinking about getting a second job for the weekends at a golf club. It might not even be every weekend and it would be a good way to get some extra spending money. Anyways, today I went to the mall with my parents and I saw so many lovely things. I'm currently searching for staples, especially in the shoe area, but most of the stuff I really liked was full price, so I must now wait for sales...hmph. I have a huge wish list from Club Monaco at the moment, which has become my new favourite store. The best part about the store is that most of the things are very basic (simply put, they're staples), so I want to get some things that I could wear over and over again by mixing with more complex items that I already own. Plus, it's very good quality clothing.

Cute outfit! Good luck on the job front.
P.S. I'm taking one year off to "figure things out," after that I will either be in law school or graduate school...I have to decide still.

Oh my that dress is gorgeous!! Polka Dots my favorite! Cool thing you do the same thing I do, wait for sales or clearance (they're the best!), and buy clothes that match with everything. That gives a sense of diversity to your wardrobe.
Sincerely Louie, Ciao!

I need to get lots of staples too...and I need lots and lots of shoes...especially more heels...I'm trying to get a little more fashionable and wear a pair of gladiator heels with my capris or something...and I need lots more accessories. i went to UO today, but everything was full price. I guess I'm in the same boat as you :)
xoxo,

Ah I know that feeling of needing staples! But rest assured that you DO have loads of statement pieces at least!
And oh my god I love Christiane Amanpour! If you ever watched Gilmore Girls, she was Rory's idol, and Rory was basically my idol. I'm so pleased you mentioned her!
And it sounds like we'll have a similar academic track! International Relations is so exciting.
