Tag, You're It!

The award rules are as follows:List 7 things that you love, and then pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you love! Be sure to tag them and let them know that they have won. You can copy the picture of the award and paste it on your sideboard letting the whole world know...you are Kreativ!

Seven Things I Love

  1. Polo shirts. Especially Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and Lacoste (new pink one last weekend!) They are so classy looking and are basically my alternative to the t-shirt. Wear with dark-wash straight-leg jeans and moccs (pearls included, of course) or with classy-chic white pants, pumps, and a classic bag.

  2. Chocolate. The darker, the better. Self explanitory.

  3. Coffee. My fuel. The one thing that keeps me going. I am addicted. I am obsessed. Starbucks, Timmy's, Second Cup (vanilla lattes are a little bit of heaven!), or even the over-priced stuff in my caf.

  4. Fashion Magazines. I would have so much more money if it wasn't for the fact that I buy at least 5 every month, and don't even have any subsriptions, which would save me sooo much.

  5. Sewing and Design. What I want to spend my life doing.

  6. Spring, so many pretty things coming out (flowers, bunnies, new preppy spring/summer collections!) Also a great time to break in those summer dresses (worn with a blazer and tights when the weather is mild)

  7. Blogging. A chance to express who I am to the world...and post tons of pictures of totally cute things I've bought or am drooling over. Almost a form of retail therapy.

Pink Preppy Party Girl

March Break

Ahhhhhh...a break indeed.

Today and yesterday's agenda:

  1. Sleep in until about 10:30
  2. Drink coffee and eat granola bar.
  3. Go online and proceed to watch episodes of Scrubs until Mega Video tells me I have watched long enough.
  4. Take nap.
  5. Eat lunch.
  6. Work on cute summer dress I'm making *more on that later
  7. Watch more Scrubs (new show obsession).
  8. Work on dress some more.
  9. Think about washing face/brushing teeth/changing out of pajamas.
  10. Decide against all of the above.
  11. Snack and more coffee.
  12. Watch more Scrubs.

Eventually my mother came home from work and my sister dropped by for the evening. I was forced to then at least wash the dishes, wash my face, brush my teeth, and throw on some jeans and a polo.

I am dying to upload pictures of my new dress and some other cute things I bought, but I can't seem to find my camera charger!

Now off to watch more Scrubs.

Ahhhhhhhh. Heaven.

Who Ever Said Money Can't Buy Happiness...

...obviously didn't know where to shop! What started out as a day that would be devoted to picking out fabric and patterns, quickly turned into an adventure that cost me a few hundred dollars. I was dropped off at the fabric district street downtown, only to realize that all the stores are closed on Sunday! Too bad my ride had already left, didn't have a cell phone, and it was freezing outside! So I quickly found myself stranded in a sketchy part of the city all alone and with almost no street smarts. Luckily, a caught a bus and took it to another part of the city (which is even more sketchy, but still) and found, lo and behold, a mall! Ok. So it's the saddest ghetto excuse for a mall, but was a haven for a poor lost preppy in the big city on her own! Actually, there was only really one decent store in that whole mall that wasn't full of ugly cheap clothing and shoplifters...but I found it! Ah, Le Chateau! And if it wasn't for this whole twist of fate, I never would have discovered that this is the BEST place to shop for my work (co-op) clothes! Partly because they have small sizes that actually fit me and partly because they had everything that I've been looking for recently! I found the cutest little white shorts, pumps, belt, and pants! I also found some adorable dresses (I wish I had somewhere formal to wear them, to give me a real excuse to buy them) and what could possibly be the most perfect suit for me ever! Except it was pretty expensive for an impulse buy, so I'll have to think where I would actually wear it...and then save up!

Which reminds me of my lent/new years resolution to stop spending money on things I don't need. By the way, this little spree doesn't count. More like bringing coffee from home, instead of buying it everyday. Most of the time. Starting tomorrow. I swear!
