Start Over

Ok. So right now I’m feeling very optimistic. I’m in a sort of transition stage right now as well. Even though Sophmore year is half over I am just now realizing the consequences of procrastination (more than the obvious). And I thought I would share this with you. I recently am doing a very large research project and it was due today. Last night it was not done. at 12pm I went to bed and admitted to myself that I had failed. And then all of a sudden a feeling suddenly swept through me, a very very relieved feeling. Because i had procrastinated on this project for the past week and a half my life has been consumed by it. I am good at coping with stress so I didn’t feel that, but my brain couldn’t think about anything else. And after I admitted that to myself I realized that it’s school. Education is important, but it’s not the most important part of life. It’s not life. And I realized that God has been neglected in my life for a while. So I’m starting a new chapter. I’m not procrastinating anymore, and I can know I’m serious when I say that because I know there are more consequences than bad grades. I started that this week and my grades have all ready gone up. But today has just been good. I’ve felt very lifted, despite the fact that I kept falling asleep. Going to bed early tonight! Here’s a song that I love, reminds me of New Years Eve (good times, good friends, good dance parties) and is kind of my theme song right now mainly for the chorus. Some of the words are questionable to my cause, but it makes me feel good so… 🙂

Dog Days Are Over

So that’s that! Now to continue with my long needed update!!

Ok, I know I said I would put up pictures of the things I made, and I will, but not today! I have to many things to say!

First order of business- a warm winters outfit. A couple weeks ago I wore this outfit.

a winters day

that’s my least blurry picture. A navy dress ( I call it my sailor dress.) It is now available on Modcloth as

Coach Tour Dress

but I got mine at Forever 21. I plan on resewing the buttons on mine. They will be smaller real brass buttons. I then covered it with my favorite gray cardi (which I seem to work into every outfit because it’s so versatile) unbuttoned and belted with my dad’s old brown leather belt. To finish off the outfit I used an adorable scarf that my friend gave me for my birthday to cover up the buttons on the collar of the neck and added my silver rose necklace

very blurry picture of rose necklace

which you can see is very rose like. I got that from my other friend for my birthday. And I double layered my textured off white tights over my gray ones, to stay warm and to look not so pale.

After that I finished off with my my lovely mid calf brown faux leather boots. And that’s the outfit of the day for the past month. Sorry for the delay. But other stuff comes first.

Fashion trend: Layers. In the winter it gets mighty cold! In my look i dressed it down with layered sweater, belt, and scarf. Then I layered my tights to stay extra warm.

My favorite part: My boots. I’m totally crazy about them they really make the outfit more classy. And I can’t really get enough of them. I don’t wear them as often as I would like, but whenever I do they make me feel very special!

Next order on the agenda are some designs I’ve been working on. The first it coming and going. It’s a long term project, but i hope to have it done by the last day of school so I can wear it then. The golden thing about this dress is that because I’ve taken time to design it I have it in my head. And I can fit it with my clothes and I can see myself wearing it a lot. It is going to be a cream colored dress with lots of different shades of off white. It will either be a strapless dress or a one shoulder, most likely strapless. The top half will go to about the bottom of my rib cage and it’s hard to describe but the picture will help. It will have strips of fabric sewn in a sort of twist. Then the bottom will be gathered at the waist and be loose and good for twirling! it will go down until about an inch above my knees. Here’s the sketch.

I’m very excited about this dress. I’ll wear it with my brown boots and a pair of fake gauges that I want on (I will get them! They are next to buy on my list. even before the yellow leather gloves)

Sankofa Wings

I also really love this pair as well. This whole shop is great! Fake gauges galore!! It’s called tribal style.

ma'ayan curls

they do really really beautiful work at that site. Anyways either of these would look great with my dress! So yes I’m excited about that too!

It’s late and I’m getting tired. So maybe Sunday I will do another post with two more designs of mine as well as an outfit of the day and Christmas presents! I’ll give you a sneak peak. Really I’m just so excited to wear it out on January 22nd when I go and see the opera  The Barber Of Saville with my friend Cassandra. It’s going to be the best thing ever! So here it is, probably the most fashionable thing I got all Christmas!

my new beaded clutch

Isn’t it just divine? Yes I think so. Score one for Grandma! I am just too excited for this! So on that happy note. I’ll leave you!

All my love! I love all my readers. I really do.

OH! Also! I now have something called And basically what you do is take a test type thing so they can figure out your style. Then you go “shopping” and say whether or not you love things. And it is addictive. You can also follow another botique. I follow three. Here’s my site

so come and visit!
