I went crazy

I came home for about 3 weeks. I'm technically still here having fun my last week being home. I went crazy at the malls. Literally. I don't want to post everything just yet mainly because the lighting is terrible in my boyfriends room back home, and that is where I am currently staying. I'm just going to wait until I am back up at school where I know the lighting is not absolutely wretched.

My main places where the bulk of my money was spent were BCBGeneration and Urban Outfitters. Every other store was probably just a little tid bit of things. Some stores included American Eagle, where I bought two pairs of jeggings. This may not seem like a big deal, but it is to me because finding bottoms I actually like is quite a hassle. I also perused through Banana Republic, Steve Madden, Dillards, Forever 21, American Apparel, and that's all I can think of  off the top of my head as of right now.

This wasn't just useless spending. I needed outfits for rush and what not, and I have also lost about 15-20 lbs., and most of my clothes no longer fit me.

I really took this time off from school and being home to really think of how and where I want to be in the fashion industry. It's going to be hard I know that, and I know I'm going to feel like giving up sometimes, and thinking it might not have been the career path for me. However, deep down it is. I know that I'm going to have to persevere through everything that is thrown out me if I'm going to make it in an industry such as fashion.

That's all for now folks. Ta ta :)

My creative side

So, my mom has held onto a pair of levi's since high school. And what a coincidence that levis's are now the new hit high waisted shorts. Luckily for me, my mom was the same size as me (almost but she had wayyyyyyy bigger boobies!) and I finally grew the courage to snip them! 

Unfortunately (even though it benefited me), I destroyed the pocket a little too much, and it showed some of my lady parts. But, after a quick run to the fabric store, I had stitched (very sloppy on purpose) some black lace fabric! Ta-da!! I actually love how they came out! The only thing I might change is I might cut them a little shorter once I lose a little more weight! Right now they hit at a perfect length without showing all the goods (the way most girls wear them!)
