Yesterday's Outfit.

Yesterday's outfit. I spent my time sleeping, eating, watching plenty of CSI and Law & Order: SVU, and doing quite ridiculous amounts of homework.

teal cardigan, grey oversize v-neck, and latex leggings: Target
black bow headband, black rose earrings, black elephant necklace: Forever 21
tons of bracelets: everywhere

Sorry for the ridiculous facial expression in the first photo; I was all jacked up on Diet Pepsi Max. That stuff is seriously potent; it kept me up till 6:30 am!


Kanye West.

Kanye West. He's both loved and hated, there's really not much inbetween. Super cocky, but I guess he deserves it with the amazing music he makes. Unlike many hip hop artists, his music (usually) has a message to go along with it.

His new album 808s & Heartbreak is much different from his first couple albums but still great nontheless. Some favorites include Love Lockdown, Heartless, and Coldest Winter.

Not only is he a great artist, but he has a great sense of style as well and as of now serves for a little bit of inspiration, for me at least. Bright colors, blazers, cool sneakers, scarves, sweaters, are some of his signatures. Then there are the shutter shades, but those just happen to be completely ridiculous. I admit it though, I did have a pair at one point; the most worthless $3 I've ever spent.

Not Much To Say.

Just an oufit. I'm a little ashamed that I was too lazy to put pants on today. Notsogood. On the other hand, I was super comfortable and everyone just assumed that I was wearing leather pants anyways.

purple & grey plaid shirt: Pac Sun
long lace tank top: some rich lady giving away clothing
black elephant necklace: Forever 21
black bow headband: Forever 21
black rose earrings: Forever 21
shiny black leggings: Target
It's ridiculous how much I wear that black headband, but I love it.


super cute heels: Forever 21
I bought them for a Sweet Sixteen I'm going to this Friday (woohoo!). Surprisingly, they're extremely comfy so I don't think I'll have any problems standing or dancing. I'm just excited for the party; I'll finally have a good reason to dress up, wear makeup, and dance.


Tada! Outifts.

As you can see, I spend entirely too much time in Target dressing rooms.

Last night I went to a Cobra Starship concert and it was AMAZING; Forever the Sickest Kids played with them. Sing it Loud and Hit the Lights were the openers, and for opening acts they were really really good. I'll have a special update with pictures either this weekend or next week.


Oh Hai.

Lately I've been extraordinarily busy with school. After missing three days because of All State Chorus, I tried to start the new marking period with a bang. Grades for the first quarter came out on friday and thankfully I'm on Honor Roll! Hopefully I can keep my grades up this quarter.

Other than grades, the whole week was generally busy. Wednesday was Career Day and I met Nina Stotler! Even though I didn't get into a session with her, I went to talk to her after school. I asked about interships, networking, and tons of other stuff that I don't quite remember from being so shell shocked. Sadly, I didn't get a picture because I STILL don't have a new camera, but she did give me a card promoting her jewelry line.

Take a looksee:

It's a little blurry, but in the top right corner it says Nina Stotler. Von Kottowitz is the name of the jewelry line, and underneath is all the information.
For more about Nina Stotler see here:

Also, yesterday was the final performance for All State. It was really bittersweet, I'm happy to not have to wake up at 5:30 in the morning for 2 1/2 hour practices but I'll definitely miss all the friends I've made, the conductor, and singing the music. Everything was spectacular, the choir and orchestra together was almost unbelieveable. I'm superexcited to get my tee shirt and CD. I received this cute little pin as a first parting gift though; I love it.

The Pin:
Sorry for the extreme blurriness, but it says "NJ All State 2008, Chorus - Orchestra" and there's music notes running through the center.

My ID Badge:
Basically I used that to get around in the hotel in Atlantic City, and in order to get into NJPAC (New Jersey Performing Arts Center), yesterday.
So for now I'm sitting at home sick, in leggings, a tee shirt, and a scarf to keep my neck safe and sound so I don't lose my voice again. I'm just doing homework that I should've finished over the weekend. Expect a street style/inspiration post soon loves!


Tiggity Tagged.

So I've been tagged by Anna's Bizarre!
The rules are pretty simple. First list six quirks about yourself, then tag six others. Here it goes:
1. I just hit 4'11 this summer and I'm sixteen years old. This leads me to believe that I might still be growing, that's probably not true though.
2. I sing, and really well apparently? I've done two Eastern Regional Choirs and this past year I was finally eligible to do All State, that was AMAZING. I wanted to do nationals, but I didn't have time to try out sadly.
3. I'm a Halloween baby. Honestly, best birthday ever! I mean I get presents, free candy, cake, and unhealthy food in one large weekend extravaganza.
4. I have a ridiculous obsession with Chinese food, it's crazy. I could actually use some lo mein and dumplings right now.
5. I'm already picking prospective colleges and I'm a sophmore in high school. My number one school would be Columbia. I also like Princeton, Emory, and Cornell.
6. I'm ridiculously sarcastic; sometimes my best friends can't tell if I'm being serious. It's really, really fun though.
Yeah so there's six of my "quirks." Nothing particularly amazing, but it's the first thing I thought of. There's plenty more that I could add, so if you want to know more just ask?

Birthday Money + 3 1/2 Days in The AC = New Clothes!

Sorry for the lack of updates, I've been superbusy. I spent three and a half days in The AC -- better known as Atlantic City, New Jersy. Considering I can't gamble or anything, most people would think it a little pointless to be there. Buttttt, I was there for the All State Mixed Chorus Concert. I basically sang my butt off a long with 300+ other sophmores - seniors. It was pretty amazing, and I met some pretty great people. The performance was Friday night, and it was SOSOSO good, and I'm doing it all over again next Sunday. Super excited for that.

Besides singing I went on the boardwalk, and spent the majority of my money on food. Especially at this great candy place called It's Sugar. I bought about 3/4 of a pound of gummy bears. They were so good - strawberry, blueberry, and pineapple. I did go shopping with my mother & brother on Saturday (today) though. I got lot of stuff, well not really. I bought a "fair amount" I guess you could say.
Take a look:

colored v-necks: Pac Sun
leopard print jeans: H&M
blue & black bandage skirt: H&M
gold-ish/bronze-y bag: Old Navy
tall black boots: Bare Feet Shoes

Oh yeah and I did get real presents besides money.
Look look look:

purple & grey plaid shirt: Pac Sun (from a friend)
purple & black scarf + black & white scarf: my grandmother
So now I'm home catching up on missed homework, and trying to to relax. The whole relaxing thing isn't working all too well though, I'm a little too hyper. I'll be back updating a ton more later though, hopefully at least.

Oh and on a different much more serious and amazing note, BARACK OBAMA IS THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. I've been waiting to say this since about 2 years ago when he announced his running for office. As a young black person I now truly feel like I can do anything if I work hard for it. There's no more excuses now; the future leader of the country is black. The only more amazing thing would be a ticket with a female and a gay man, as said by my mother.Other than just being amazed I feel there is a revolution coming on. Change will come after these past eight years and I'm ready for it. The U.S. will hopefully regain its respect in the world. I'm extremely happy for this country to be made better in these next four years. I can't even explain my excitement for January 2009, it'll be amazing.
