So many outfits, so little time

I finally got around to taking some outfit pictures in the past couple of days. I'm really excited to be finally trying out the turban look and thanks to Calivintage I finally figured out how to do it, although I don't have the American Apparel sash to try it with I figured out how to make my silk scarf into one although it was a little too short. I think it looks pretty good, but I have to get the courage to actually wear it around school - I already get enough looks because I actually dress up haha!







This is the first time I've actually worn the Rodarte for Target dress I was so excited to buy, it's a little dressy for day to day wear but I finally figured out how to dress it down, and I really like the way the tulle looks coming out of my skirt :)!

Tiffany & Co. silk scarf
Rodarte for Target dress
American Apparel Skirt
Christian Siriano for Payless heels


I enterd the Forever 21 and Chictopia contest for Valentine's day with this picture, you can vote for me here

Everything from Forever 21, boots thrifted

I also entered the H&M and blue contest on Lookbook, it's not my favorite outfit but I thought I'd try, hype it here

Everything H&M but the heels and the scarf is from NYC



Also I got another Best Blogger Award from Amy at The Bargin Hunter Extraordinaire, and I got the Happy 101 award from Andrea at Sitting In Booths! You can find my ten facts about myself here.
Also I have to list ten things that make me happy, so here they are:
1. My dog Crystal
2. Fashion
3. My boyfriend
4. Cheese Ravioli in butter
5. Polaroids
6. My family
7. DIY projects
8. Going to New York City
9. Seeing the skyline of NYC from my dorm
10. Styling new outfits

Thank you both so much :) Bloggers check them out, they both have great blogs!

Mary Catherine Moody said...

great turban...and the 4th pic is bad ass! you so cute

cαro said...

i checked the rodarte collection out in target and was really disappointed with the quality . . . i mean i know it's target, but come on. i didn't see that black dress, though, so you probably got the gem of the lot

Marta Represa said...

Looooove it! Crazy about the 20's feeling of the turban.
And it's better to get looks because you actually dress up than being average and transparent!

daisychain said...

emily kendall said...

Steffani Alix said...

OliviaDias said...

Love the turban look! I wear scarves in my hair all the time, and I know how you feel getting funny looks when you dress up for school, I'm the same, I come in wearing my fur coat and vintage lace up boots whilst everyone else is in hoodies and uggs.
Also, you look so good in red lipstick!
