In one of my many online window shopping excursions, I found this little gem of a PERFECT ring. Mix 1 part love of Octopi and 1 part love of chunky rings, and this ring is the product and my dream ring. I. Must. Have. This.
I am now on a Mission.
These are the shoes I wear most often. My 3 favorite pair of boots (studded:Forever21, Lace up:NineWest, Oxford:UO) have been lifesavers over the past few months of mondo bizzaro weather. Thru rain and mud and cold, they braved the weather and kept my feet dry/warm! Other than boots, my 2 pairs of TOMS (grey lace-ups and classic corduroys) are absolutely the most comfortable things. I plan on acquiring even more pairs as the years come. My Volcom sandals have done their part on the occasional sunny day, I wore them more in 2009, during my senior year of HS. However with spring coming around soon (hopefully) I think it's time to dust them off and wear them more often. And last but not least, my manmocs. A simple little pair of moccasins I found in the guy section of Payless, of all places. They're super comfortable but I mostly wear them to class when I'm feeling lazy, ha. As you can see, I'm a child of comfort. I love nothing more than my feet to feel good (not to mention the fact that I'm constantly running/taking the bus/rushing over uneven terrain when I have little to no balancing skills.) I hope to expand my shoe-drobe to include more heels (I own about 5 pairs). But c'est la vie!
Another notable obsession, Oxford shoes. On boys, on girls, everyone and anyone. I love to pair them with my dresses and tights. They add a little tomboy touch to my love of feminine things :) I own one pair (the all black with patent heel and toe) but I want to find more hopefully, when I visit NY!

Last night I had my first experience working with my close friend, Jennifer. She's an aspiring photographer/model, and she's been doing small shoots for friends/fellow models she knows. I tagged along for a brief Vampire themed with models/friends Krystal and Katy. While not an ideal shoot, mostly because of the time crunch and the fact that I was feeling out the situation, the girls turned out a share of lovely shots. Here are a few:
I have a confession. I am slightly obsessed with chunky rings. I'm really picky about them and I can't seem to find a great deal of them that grab ahold of me and won't let go till I own them. I own about four (including one that was a gift from a friend and the Cheshire Cat ring from the top pic) I've seen a few on urbanoutfitters.com that I really can't get out of my head. Time will tell if I actually buy them tho, ha. There's no Urban in my town, so when I head up to NYC for spring break, I'll definitely have my eyes on the look-out :)

but I've decided I needed a whole different blogging world to keep track of my fashion/design aesthetic eye. I'll be posting pretty/interesting photos, styles/fashion news I find interesting, maybe my own outfits at some point, house/apartment decor, ect. Basically anything that I find pleasing and thoughts for future reference on my behalf :)
