Fashionably Dumb

So it has been snowing off and on since Sunday. (speaking of which someone’s posting has been extremely off lately…ehhhh) Apparently the snow on the ground and the snow falling from the sky did not register in my head this morning as I headed out for my trip to campus.

I had to dress up today and I take the opportunities, as they are rare, seriously. Very seriously.

Tweed gray and black skirt, light pink button up layered under a magenta crew neck sweater, gray tights and last, but not least, Emily’s new pumps.

Yea, I love them too. I have my own black pumps but the heal is only 2.5 inches…I wanted more. Greedy, Greedy me choses to wear the almost 4 inch heels out into the blizzard: Fashionably Dumb.

I had Sally with me on the way to class. Very helpful. She is tiny and I am very tall (especially with the fabulous pumps :)) so she fit right under my shoulder for support as I walked with tiny, tiny steps down the icy hill leading to the Willard building. A passerby even felt my pain as she said “That sucks” (in my direction) to her friend as she witnessed my struggle.

Good news: I didn’t fall. After class I had planned on using Mifflin for support on my trek to the HUB. Instead, I got a text.

3/4 of the way through class (we watched an excellent movie, ehhhh, not so much. Sally and I are pretty sure we are 3rd graders with ADD) I receive this : “Yo ldb i’m out kiddo.”

Unprepared to yell across the silent room to him, quickly I responded: “No. I need help walking.”

He was already gone. I am pathetic. I can walk by myself. Yes. I . Can.

I walked s l o w l y. Annoyingly slow.

I make it without falling.

After class I had to trek to the Library…where I have been since 2 p.m. trapped because of Emily’s amazing shoes. And I still think the are amazing, regardless of their attempts at trying to kill me today. I should probably point out that there were a few slips, but no falls. Minor details people, really.

I make it to the library.

Only one more trip. Halfway through campus to the Disney meeting, the whole reason why I am even wearing these shoes.

I haven’t taken a digger yet.

I am not stupid. I know there is no way I can get away with this outfit in these weather condition and I understand and accept the fact that I will fall today. I just have to “wait for it, wait for it.”

At least its dark now and I have had the whole day to plan my graceful fall and recovery 🙂

And I’m off….

I Love Everything.

It’s a problem.

Some people are shoe people (Molly), accessory addicts and of course clothes obsessed.

What am I?

I am all of the above. Plus some.

I LOVE shoes.

I love Franco Sarto, BCBGirls, Nine West and alllll of the fabulous people I can’t afford.

And the higher the better. I may be 5′ 8″ and wish I was shorter…but when it comes to a heel it better be at LEAST 3 inches.

I also LOVE sneakers. The funkier the better. I love Puma’s and very HipHop almost ’80s NIKE Dunks…but I have not purchased a pair in a year. I am attempting to grow-up.

I will never buy a pair of Steve Madden shoes. Ever. Uncomfortable and you can get the same EXACT style 9 times out of 10 at…GASP, TARGET.

I LOVE Necklaces, Earrings, Rings and Purses

True story. It’s bad.

I have the BEST Chanel Necklaces (from Canal Street…please, I am a college student).

I love long necklaces, I love short necklaces. I am a lover not a hater. Clearly.

Earrings: In high school I was the queen of the HUGE earrings. I had a pair of hoops I could fit my fist through…yeaaaaaaaa. Now I mostly wear my 21st birthday present: diamond studs. I have 4 piercings in my ears and I almost always have them all adorned with something silver and shiny. Unless I am wearing gold. Then they will be adorned with gold, of course.

I have the most fanatastic ring in the world. I got it for my 18th birthday. She is a blue topaz white gold ring with diamonds. Her name is Beyonce. Don’t ask.

I also have a decent collection of big guady rings. I have fun with them. And apparently that is the trend now, one big ol’ fun ring on your hand. Love it. Love it.

Purses…my dad worked in Korea and Japan. Who has an amazing Louis Vuitton knock-off? ME. And a leather backpack, and a canvas tote. And the most fabulous furry clutch from the city. Uhhhh. Love bags.

I LOVE Clothes.

 Cheap. Expensive. I love them. Pants with suspenders. Wideleg dress pants. Wideleg denim. Sweaters. Vests. Uhhhhh. Love them all. And honestly I believe it isn’t good to have A “style” because you should be free to wear WHATEVER YOU WANT. Yup, that’s what I think.

If you couldn’t tell I am the mood to shop…and let me tell you State College, PA has absolutely NO shopping. It is horrible. So I can’t wait to hit up my good ol’ Banana Republic outlet when I come home for Turkey Day.

I LOVE Make Up 

 I just bought fresh Masacara. Love when I get to do that. And of course, I use Maybelline Great Lash mascara. And you should too. It never clumps. Also, I always use an eyelash curler, my mom never does so I don’t know how I picked up this habit but I do it even if I don’t wear mascara.

I am also a HUGE fan of Bare Minerals. So amazing

I don’t wear a lot of make up but I have a pretty good collection of eye shadows and eyeliners…it’s always fun to try something different every now and then.

Speaking of which someone told me yesterday that I have pretty eyes. I never got that line before. It wasn’t in a corny romantic way either. It was a friend of Mifflin’s. He just casually said to Mifflin, “Doesn’t she have the prettiest eyes?” Never thought they were that great, but hey, I’ll take that. 🙂

Well that was fun, talking about all life’s Girly things! Now it’s back to Accounting.

Which is not girly.

Or fun.

And it does not look good with ANYTHING in my closet.
