Feelin' Fancy

 Skirt: Free People Shirt: Gap Shoes: Forever21

I wore this outfit last week and I had multiple (okay fine two) people tell me that I looked very nice and fancy. Almost as if I was about to walk into a business meeting or head into work for the day. Apparently, this leather mini skirt gives off those sort of vibes, especially when paired with a crisp chamber button down.

Senior Prom

My senior prom was on Friday night...
It was a blast! I love getting all dressed up, and taking tons of pictures and having the entire prom experience.

I had the amazing opportunity of designing my own prom dress.
 I applied and won a contest with Fame & Partners, an Australian based formal occasion dress company. The first part of my prize was designing a prom dress. Basically, I was able to take one of their designs and make it my own. Over the past few weeks I have been collaborating with the company; I had a video conference call with the head designer and she was able to sketch out exactly what I wanted. I chose to change the print of the skirt from a darker floral printed fabric to something lighter. I kept the top the same stark white color, but changed the back from a criss-cross to two wrap around straps. I had an amazing experience working with the team and creating a one of a kind dress.

Too Cool For School

Shirt: Forever21 Pants: Urban Outfitters Shoes: Converse

I am just way too cool for school, right? Yeah, okay.
At this point, I am so over school work in general, not that I am ready to graduate just yet. The ironic thing is these pictures were actually taken at my elementary school. I love the combo of fierce red lips, a classic tank and some stellar ripped jeans. This look just screams edgy and a little rebellious to me, and thats just what I was going for. 

Tomorrow night is my senior prom.
 I have to say that I am not usually one for school dances but I am excited about this. I have a gorgeous dress to wear and I can't wait to get all dolled up! And then spend the entire weekend with my friends.
 Be on the lookout for a prom coming soon.

Follow The Yellow Brick Road

Overalls: Thrifted Shirt: H&M Shoes: Free People

The title of this post might be slightly misleading, there is no yellow brick road to follow. But hopefully you all get my Wizard of Oz reference, especially because I am in my "Dorothy" shoes. In an ideal world, these little red booties would send me home as I click my heels together. I find myself repeating "I want to go home! I want to go home!" way to often in school these days, to bad my shoes aren't sparkly enough to have any magical powers. 

I did a little exploring for an interesting location for these photos, we have some really cool abandoned greenhouses in my town. They are filled with evidence of pervious use and the marks of people who have passed through. Right now they are extremely run down but I am sure that at one point in time they were just as beautiful as they were useful. All in all a very cool spot.
