Here are a few things I've been lusting after. Mostly stufff from my wish list with a few extras added.

Most of the stuff in Forever 21 is trash but if you search through the piles of shoddily made trends you can find a few gems. This dress piqued my interest in the store because the shilloutte is similar to that seen in Mui Mui SP08 collection. However, I hesitated to buy the dress. With more than enough party outfits in my wardrobe this one needed to translate to daytime. A black blazer and some futuristic glasses helped to keep me from looking like I was heading to the club.

Time for a switch.

My style is a mixture of bright prints, neutral separates inspired by my preppy high school environment (Midwestern boarding school) and my hipsterish college environment (New York City). I usually focus on one facet of my style until I get sick of it. My outfits have consisted of tons of bright prints these past few weeks. Today I went with some neutrals instead and added one bright accessory. Focusing on one aspect of my wardrobe for weeks at a time and then moving to another theme makes all of my pieces seem new and fresh to me at some point and time. I paired this outfit with my Marc by Marc Jacobs bag and Prada sunnies.

Running Errands

Today I headed to work to see if someone could pick up my shift, got my eyebrows threaded (long over due), and went to Starbucks to study. I choose something lightweight since it was kinda of hot today. This dress can be thrown on bc it doesn't require much effort in terms of styling. The print is bold so the accessories were kept minimal with simple studs and my black Gryson for Target bag. I love wearing this dress as it reminds me of the great deal I got. The dress originally cost $200 and I got it 75% of at $50. I own another T-bags dress and am def a fan of the line.
Any thoughts on how to style this especially in the cooler months?

A Look I'm SICK Of

I am tired of the Rayban Wayfarer. Admittedly this may because I lost mine last week and am jealous as an ex-member of the Wayfarer club. However I think it's more than that. When debating whether to repurchase the aforementioned sunnies I began to mull over a few thoughts.

1.Popping a pair of these sunglasses onto a simple outfit used to denote coolness now similar to skinny jeans everyone and their mother has them so their mystic has been lost.

2.In April I saw a 50 year old man rocking the sunglasses. While I do go to school in NYC, when a 50 year old man starts to rock something it is no longer edgy and cool.

3. The Jonas Brothers a bubble gum pop boy band have been spotted wearing the Wayfarers at almost event they attend. I know this because my little sister is a devoted fan.
So.... Old men and teen pop stars have been spotted wearing the look. It might be time to move on. My new favorite artsy black glasses are a heart pair similar to what Nicole Richie has been seen wearing.

I am sure circular frames are on the horizon as the Olsen's are fans. As the famous twins go so does the rest of the fashion industry...does boho ring a bell?
Although I missed out on the infamous Chanel pair I am looking forward to buying similar glasses by Miu Miu this season.
So what do you think are the Wayfarers old news? And if so what is in contention for new edgy sunnies?
