stormclouds gathering

[ :: AE scallop hem dress :: Michael Kors leather jacket :: We Love Colors tights :: ]
[ :: Guess booties :: Arden B bag :: Swarovski earrings :: ]

Yup. It's totally pouring out but I took photos anyway! I've been waiting for ages for the weather to cool down enough to wear these tights from We Love Colors. They're so soft and comfortable, and I love the blueish tint of the charcoal tights. They also have a fab style blog that shows many different bloggers styling their items. So cute! I'll definitely be wearing these again on a day where the weather is more forgiving so I can take some better photos of them!

Back to packing! Remeber, today is the last day to enter the SimplyBe Giveaway! :)

Yours, Etc.

P.S. This bag is going up in the shop! Email me if you're interested! :)

New items at CurvyGirlShop! :)

I uploaded 30 new items to CurvyGirlShop today! :) There are a bunch of great fall pieces, including some fab outerwear like the full skirted trench and houndstooth jacket. I'm also kicking myself over the Banana Republic flared skirt that I can't fit into anymore. :( It's the perfect color for Fall!

Anyway, I hope you'll take a look! :) As always, purchasing instructions are at the bottom of every page. :)

Thanks guys!! Don't forget--last day to enter the SimplyBe Giveaway is tomorrow!

Yours, Etc.

running out of time

[ :: Guess booties :: brandless clutch :: H&M headband :: ]

Of course it's raining. I have a million and a half errands to run for packing/moving but it seems the weather gods don't feel like cooperating! Hmph.

Anyhow! I found this awesome vintage Ralph lauren blazer last week and have been waiting for the weather to cool down so I could wear it. I love the shiny gold buttons! hehe. :) 

Okay, gotta make lunch then back to packing/organizing/cleaning!

wind in my sails

[ :: Banana Republic ruffled top :: BP tank :: H&M slouchy skirt :: ]
[ :: AE leopard flats :: Banana Republic bracelet :: F21 bag :: ]

Went in search of a giant hammock today! There's some sort of installation or something made out of recycled materials. It was cool, but already camped out on by a bunch of people. It just happened to be in front of one of my favorite buildings in Boston--the Intercontinental Hotel. See how it's kind of wavy? It's supposed to be inspired by sails. :)

Anyway, I snagged this cute skirt at H&M for $18. It's comfy, slouchy, and I love the oversized pockets. I can't wait to play around this more come Fall!

Okay. I'm off to pack and watch TV! hehe :)

new finds on a dime

[ :: H&M vest & shorts :: Gap tank & jacket :: ]
[ :: Forever21 boots ::  Melody's Addiciton earrings :: ]

On one of my recent forays into Gap, I was lucky enough to snag this jacket on sale for $26. Considering that I'd wanted this when it was full price ($69.50), I didn't need to think twice when I saw it was my size! 

Another recent acquisition is the pair of earrings I'm wearing. I saw them at a stall in Brooklyn Flea--Melody's Addiction--and completely fell in love! The sis bought them as a birthday gift for me. Thanks jie! :) I love big earrings but don't like the weight, so these fabric/lace ones are perfect! There were also some gorgeous leather strap ones as well. So fabulous! If you guys are interested, she sells her gorgeous pieces at Brooklyn Flea as well as on Etsy. Support handmade, guys! :)

In a trip filled with good deals, I also found these awesome boots at Forever21 for $28. They're exactly what I've been looking for, and at a very good price point. Can't wait to wear these into Fall!

Yours, Etc.

nocturnal for a day

[ :: Faith21 lace top and skirt :: BP tank :: Guess booties :: ]
[ :: Banana Republic necklace and bracelet :: ]

Stayed up till 4:30am helping my sis pack last night. She came to Boston to steal my furniture (and some of my clothes!) before I leave for Cali. It was awesome having her here and I'm totally going to miss being able to hop on a bus to go see her. :(

After she left, I proceeded to PASS OUT for the rest of the day, waking just in time for dinner and a movie. :) The top and skirt are from my recent trip to NYC--the Forever21 in Times Square is like a miniature mall! It's a must-see if you're in the area. I snagged the boots at an awesome price at DSW--they're super easy to walk in and I love the zipper and buckle detail.

Hope you all had an awesome weekend! :)

Yours, Etc.

Had a lovely time meeting and shopping with you guys! Hopefully we'll be able to meet up again sometime. :)

Photos from yesterday! Today's my bday so I'm off to go celebrate (a.k.a. EAT!) muahaha. :D

Bye guys! :D

P.S. Thanks for all the birthday wishes!! ♥

I had pushed these shoes into a dark corner of my apartment because I knew I couldn't do much in them (except maybe teeter perilously in a 3 foot circle). Surprisingly, when I slipped them on today, they felt fine! Almost...normal? The heel is a bit slippery and the incline is still 5.5 inches, but they were definitely walkable.
This tank/vest thingy is one of my new favorite pieces. It's a sweater material on the front and back and it has black mesh side panels. It's super breezy (obvs), and a nice swingy shape. 

Anyhow, today was so effing hot. After a brief stint outside, I returned to my ac-ed apartment to watch a marathon of The City.(lol. I'm so productive. -_-') That's okay. NYC tomorrow!! I'm so stoked--this trip is going to be amazing! :D Now I just have to figure out what to pack!

Yours, Etc.

sunday fun

[ :: gifted City Chic white ruffle top :: h.i.p. cardigan :: AE skinnies :: Evans boots :: ]
[ :: Coach tote :: Urban leaf earrings :: ]

The lovely people at City Chic were kind enough to send me this top--it's a suuuper soft, ruffly tank with lace straps and back with zipper detail. My only gripe about it is that the ruffles don't go all the way around. I like my tops extra frilly! haha. :P

Anyway, I just realized that I've only posted an outfit with these boots once before. I love love love them! They're a little wide both in the shaft and at the foot, but so comfortable with a pair of thick socks and more than wide enough to tuck any pair of jeans in. These are definitely my go-to boot during the Fall. :D

Anyway, the bf and I hit up South Street Diner today! It's open until 5am, so clearly it's a favorite of drunk college kids and well...drunk high school kids or drunk people in general. Awesome buffalo wings and Belgian waffles (with strawberries)! :D Even if you're sober. Yummm.
