I suck at titles

7 Aug

Not sure if anyone caught my post this morning. I definitely deleted it promptly upon waking but then as I was unposting it I found it pretty comical. So now I’m essentially reposting it, but I’m putting it with other *sober* things to try & class it up a bit…

yes, so after working 13 freaking hours I finally got to my phone & realized my friend Eric’s party was happening. I said I would go & I did honestly want to. The only problem was getting into shoes & not collapsing onto my bed when I went in to find the chosen shoes. I’m good at bailing, I do it all the time, but there was a mention of CHAMPAGNE &… Well, I’ll go anywhere for Champagne. On top of that it was a “Classy Liguor Party” & I’ll take any excuse to dress up. I avoided the bed & surprisingly turned my “30 minute appearance” into “4 hours of fun & makin out” haha

I changed into this

As you can see I was still struggling with my shoes. I set up the camera, hit the timer, & oops don’t have shoes on. haha. Fail.

The dress was a Christmas gift from Anthony when we were together. This was actually the first time I wore it. It’s a great dress. As my style hero Rachel Zoe would say “I love me some sequins!!” ūüôā

Btw how cute does the bow on my foot look? It’s so much darker now I love it! It’s obviously much more noticeable since being touched up. I had THREE old men compliment me on it at work yesterday. Old men! I love that. So unexpected.

As for the party.. well I didn’t keep it to classy. But I did make out with the hottie I’ve been eyeballing for a while. &…. well that might have happened in front of my friend Thomas. & that didn’t make him too happy. Now I am trying to do damage control & minimize the situation (even though I say, unless you’re in a relationship, or exclusive, you’re GOOD TO GO).

I wish this blog was a little a lot more anonymous. At least not connected to my name because MAN I ALWAYS HAVE SO MUCH MORE TO SAY!!!! gah.

To the outfits!

[Dress – Target. $20; Heels – Target, $6; Sweater –¬† Victorias Secret, FREE]

LOOOOVE this new dress! Definitely should not have made the purchase.. cuttin it close this pay period, but ohhh it was only $20, it looks so retro, &it’s really well made. It’s one of those crazy originally $50 dresses at target. pfft. Does anyone pay full price for clothing at Target anymore? I always wait & I generally have great luck.

[Tank – Old Navy; Pants – NY&Co $10 (I think); Wedges – Walmart $5; Belt – Thrifted with a dress; Shirt – Target $4]

I wore this to my first night at Mt Vernon. Minus the wedges. First thing the woman training me says: “You better have brought other shoes!” Luckily I happened to have some white flats in my car to save the day.

(btw I thought I would really dislike my trainer but she was AWESOME! She’s even from my home town in FL which makes it a suuuper small world! Sadly she’s out for 8 weeks now, so I only got one night with her)

[Pants – NY&Co; Flats – Target; Tank – no clue; Cardi – Target $6; Belt – came with a shirt]

Look at that badonkadonk in the mirror! yowza! I did NOT like this outfit & in fact was at target to buy another shirt to wear for the 2nd job. I didn’t find anything. Blahhh.

[shirt – Old Navy; Skirt – Thrifted $4; Heels – Steve Madden $20; Belt – came with dress; headband – target $1]

Really loved this outfit! I think I’m gonna repeat it this coming week for the restaurant since I only wore this to the office…

and yesterday!I feel like this was so much cuter than it photographed.. I just really needed to wear a skirt to the restaurant. I can’t suffer in pants for 13 hours. No way Jose! Surprisingly, EVERYONE loved this outfit & mgmt was so pleased with me. Additionally as the customer base is of the much older set, the customers seemed to love me more too (I also got way better at seating but whatever it’s the outfit!) I’m excited, I obviously touch back to a retro look & I think at this place it will be really appreciated.

Gotta get ready now actually!

Recently…

25 Jul

Just a few recent things that have made me happy (& that I was able to get pictures of!)

My mom made me these adorable “Teepee” treats. More on the reason later. Aren’t they cute?! Brownies on the inside! yum!

This boy & his shirt

This intensely sequined dress. It didnt have a price on it & at the thrift store that I was at, if it doesnt have a tag they take it to the back & theres no way to put claim on it or leave your number. So I may have illegally stolen a tag & attached it. In my defense, 1) I needed the dress, 2) I chose a decently priced tag as to pay for its worth & 3) I, for some strange ass reason had a safety pin attached to my scarf that I was able to use to secure the tag. Thats just the universe telling me we were meant to be together. I plan to wear it to NYE in Paris. Yes thats right, Paris France. I’ve decided & if I get the job that I interviewed for, & then decide to accept (I’m all twist about it… more on that later) I’m savin my money!

This painting that was ridiculously overpriced & I plan to recreate.

More sweet Cece’s dates. This time I went on Two Punch Tuesday & sweet talked my way to THREE punches.

Bryan Harvey. Oh Bryan Harvey. Such a great kid. He shows up to Flippong (which btw I am HORRIBLE AT!) wearing this. Best costume change ever from the concert we were previously at.

oh & btw the concert we were at was populated by EVERY guy I am currently dating. Oh my. It was intense. & Just when I thought I managed to narrow it down to two…. everyone shows up to Flippong at the after party. (Bryan Harvey excluded – though I did profess my love for him in that outfit)

Seeing this number.

My mom decorated my front door on Thursday. God I love her! Isn’t she the best?! I had been complaining all day about work.

Which I’m framing to hang on my art wall!

a clean bedroom!

Watched the Karl Lagerfeld Documentary: Lagerfeld Confidential this morning & this made me lol so hard – its posted in his office bathroom!

Part of the epic project I told you about & still need to post! Oh & one of the tattoos I recently got that I hadn’t posted (because I suck at blogging, obviously) It’s a hello kitty bow! duh!

Found during morning run. need.

aww shucks. Meant to post this a while ago.

so much more but these pictures took a million & two years to upload! talk to you tomorrow!

night night!
