Summer to Fall Transition: The Slip Dress

I may be a bit late to this trend, or maybe slightly early.  But slip dresses.  Once used exclusively as undergarments are becoming an easy, breezy choice for the summer months.

This is definitely a trend I want to try, and I know thrift stores will be able to help me with that.  It's also a good transitional piece to fall.  Just add a leather jacket, tights, and some boots and you'll be ready to go.

Neutrals and a Musical Conundrum

Back to blogging after a long hiatus.  Hopefully I can maintain regular posting for this school year.

Inspiration for the new school year.  I'm thinking neutrals with some stellar accessories.

Recently my musical tastes have come to a standstill.  I've gotten the urge to once again find new music.  And rather than going forward, I think I prefer going back.  Specifically 70s and 80s rock, with a synth-y feel.  Think The Smashing Pumpkins, The Cure, and most recently, Tears for Fears.

The first rule of Clone Club is...

This post comes courtesy of the amazing Tatiana Maslany, a Canadian actress currently playing...well, pretty much everyone, in Orphan Black.  The show is in the middle of its second season on BBC America and she is incredible.

And my personal favorite: Tatiana as Sarah Manning in "Orphan Black"

The Road to Graduation

Ten.  There are a mere ten days left until Commencement.  Ten days left until undergrad is over.  Like all seniors, the common question of "So what are your post graduation plans?" is a not so pleasant reminder that the end is really coming.

For me, that future is partially planned out.  After a well deserved vacation with my family and a real summer with my friends, I'll be returning to WM to start a Master's program in Chemistry.  Ack.  What was I thinking as I signed my life away for the next two years?  Only time will tell.

With all the reservations I have about grad school, and there are many, there is a silver lining.  I get to both delay my entrance into the "real world", but will be able to get my own place which is one of the only real benefits of said "real world."  And anyway, it is every Pinterest-er's/thrifter's dream to be able to furnish an apartment from top to bottom.  Fingers crossed, I do hope I end up living somewhere in the Fall and that there's some semblance of personality in my place.

Printed pillows, bold artwork, and plants are a definite must have for next year.

Not So Intrspective Introspection

With less than three days and a laundry list of things I need to get done before Spring Break, I've swapped Swem Library for the gym as my second home on campus.  As for Spring Break plans, I don't need to work my brain too hard to figure out where I really want to go.

New York City.  I don't need a Buzzfeed quiz to tell me that NYC is my spirit city.  Everything I love most about life, Broadway, fashion, art and history, has a distinct home somewhere in the city.

I want to walk.  I want to visit Grand Central Terminal.  I want to walk down Broadway and take pictures at every big theatre.  I want to "go see a mother f***in' Broadway show."  I want my first meal in NYC to be a hot dog from a hot dog stand.  I even want to smell the oh-so-nauseating smell of the grimy NYC streets.  I want to visit a real Chinatown.  I want to take the Subway down to the artsy part of the city.  I want to people watch on a bench in Central Park.  I want to not so coincidentally run into Lin-Manuel Miranda.  I want to take the Staten Island Ferry there and back again at night, with the silhouette of the city lit up in the background.  I want to see an evening show at 54 Below.  I want to window shop in the Garment District, and maybe even splurge on something that costs and arm and a leg.  I want to visit the Strand Bookstore.  I want to go vintage shopping in the East Village.  I want to see an up and coming show off-Broadway.  I want to stand in the middle of Times Square and be deafened by the cacophony of taxis, cars, and people.  I want to never be finished discovering the city and its hidden treasures.

I want to take in all New York City has to offer.
