FNO


(Custo Barcelona coat, French Connection top, Jeffrey Campbell Tardy boots)
This is what I wore to go out to Fashion's Night Out here in Chicago. I picked this coat up one day this summer when my mom and I were aimlessly walking around SoHo. I instantly fell for the painted woman on the front of the coat; she stared at me and essentially said "buy me." Who am I to argue with a coat? Paired with my skinniest black pants and my favorite FC top. I loved the look of the collar draped over the top of the coat.

Ive gotten a lot of wear out of my new clutch; its super tiny, but perfect for toting around chapstick, a credit card, and an ID. I would highly recommend it, it has the look of Calvin Klein collection at a fraction of the price! My grandma bought me this watch as a going away gift for college. Ive never worn a watch before but I am in love with it, especially the grey metal color...it goes with everything! Have a great week, I'm off to do my computer class homework!

An Old Lady's Bathroom

Coming to you from Chicago...Via my backyard. This lovely set of pictures was taken on my last Fat Girl night before leaving for college
(French Connection "Bucket Floral" shirt, Forever 21 spike necklace, Pour La Victoire heels, clutch from The Dressing Room)
 I was so excited to wear this shirt! I have loved it ever since I helped merchendise it last summer. I love the old lady wallpaper feel of the print and the shirt; it was literally the first thing i packed for college. I cant wait to pair it with my heavy leather jackets and thick grey knits
Happy almost Monday....I really need to start my homework!

Fifteen Days.....

Anyways, Ive finally settled into my dorm room at SAIC! So happy to have my stuff unpacked and in my closets. These pictures were taken at the last big dinner gathering with my friends before we all parted ways for college.
(DKNY jacket,VersacexH&M top, Seven jeans, Mossimo belt, Pelle Moda boots, Kate Spade bag)
Before heading off to school, I went pants shopping and was very, very pleased to be buying size 12 trousers, a great improvement over the size 16's I was buying this time last year. I thought why not go with a green theme and before I knew it I looked just like Poison Ivy. This bag is actually one of the few "nice" bags I brought with me to college. It was very sad saying goodbye to a lot of my purses.
In case you were wondering, there are no spirits in this picture, its just summer's hair
