All that Glitters and Such...

Merry Christmas!

Almost. I have been in college, which is why I have not posted the rest of the Hunger Games themed outfits.
Never fear, I shall continue that eventually. 
For now though, I am going to show off what we college people do with our spare time.

We dance!
(And yes, that is a Pokemon mask...)

During this past semester my darlings friends and I have taken every opportunity to shop for and wear all things glitzy and glamorous. 
We threw a ball, attended a bridal shower, randomly sacked thrift stores searching for perfect dresses.. 

And we were in a play. 
That too. 
(Thanks, Modcloth, for a majority of my costume!)

So I thought I would share some pictures from our most magnificent moments. 
We truly do dazzle. ;-)

Some of the ladies at the ball!

Being princesses for a bridal shower. Best. Idea. Ever.

My dress!
A friend of mine at church made it for me! 
Fairly priced, excellent quality. 
If anyone needs a princess dress, I recommend her!

Faith decided she wanted to get in on the action.
Fiona took a fantabulous Modcloth dress

 and turned it into a PHAntabulous dress!

 And of course, our fabulous "temporary" dressing room. 
That's all for now, folks! 
Stay glitterized!

The Fashion Games: Outfit#1- A Hunting We Will Go..

Happy Hunger Games!

While I've yet to see the movie, 
I have read the book(s).
Thus the inspiration for this next CNM series!
It's been awhile since Alice in Fashionland, 
So I thought we were due a few new fiction based outfits.

In the Hunger Games series, Katniss Everdeen 
is a ridiculously poor girl who has been taking care of her mom and sister, Prim, 
since the tragic death of her father. 
In an attempt to protect her sister from certain death,
 she volunteers to take Prim's place in the abhorred Hunger Games.
But before this valiant act of love takes place, 
Katniss goes hunting.

 *Note: These outfits are INSPIRED by The Hunger Games. 
Not meant to be worn in them. 
Therefore, I'm using skirts, and possibly heels.*

So, this jacket is actually what inspired me to create this outfit series.
I saw it and thought
"That's what Katniss would wear."

The green will help camouflage, I'm sure. 

I love floor length skirts. 
If I was going hunting in a skirt, this would be the one I wore.

Lace-up boots are the bomb. 
(That is not Hunger Games humor, by the way...)
These actually would be fairly useful out in the woods. 
Tie them up tight, and there is no chance of spiders getting in your shoes!

Mmm, I love this bag!
Cross-body bags are so stylish! 
The flap on this one is adorable. 
If someone ever actually used this as a forage bag, I might cry.

Jacket: ModCloth
Tank: Dillards
Skirt: Anne Klein
Boots: ModCloth
Bag: Ebags

May the odds be ever in your favor!

School Dayz

Georgetown College.
Just down the road from the ever yum-o Fava's diner, 
this little patch of collegiate-ness serves to educate youths from all over the world. 

It comes complete with food that is only good in the morning, 
Dorms that I most definitely will not be staying at, 
and this thing called a G-Card which is actually quite awesome.
As this is where I will most likely spend the next four years of my life 
(It's always a good time....)
I figured I should do a blog post about it.

So Georgetown's mascot is a tiger.
This means our colors are black and orange. 
How lame is that? 
What is not lame, is the fact that the little Eiffel Towers,
 and other such French-y symbols on this dress, 
are in black and orange! 
The lovely Robin's Egg Blue background definitely helps 
tone down the Halloween-ish vibe those colors normally have.
I own this dress, and I must say, it's fantabulous.

Wedge heels and peep toes.
I'm a creature of habit. 
This is a great transitional shoe, 
And what's more transitional than college, right?

So, apparently, kids that go to real school have to tote their books all day.
This inspired some kindhearted soul to invent this lil beauty,
The backpack.
 This chic edition of this fabulous invention is just the thing for a sophisticated college student.

While I'm not a fan of the colors, I do have to show *some* school pride here..
And this cute little tiger bracelet is just the thing!
Subtle, yet styling, this shows just the right amount of school spirit!

Dress: Modcloth
Shoes: Payless
Purse/Backpack: Coach
