Back to School

Back to School

Back to School by wanna-be-fashionista featuring stud earrings

I'll admit, I had some trouble creating this (and I'm still not sure I am happy with it) maybe its because I don't even know what I am wearing for my first day. I mean I'll be starting my junior year, usually by then most college students are done trying, but I just can't leave my house in something typical, I like dressing up, plus, I'll be doing it in two years anyway, what better practice than to do it now.

I think my problem with this outfit is that its a lot of trends in one outfit: lace shorts, peplum top and pop of color blazer. I love them all, but I'm not sure they would all go together. Plus, with missouri weather, it'll probably be too hot for a blazer anyway.

I guess it comes down to rocking whatever you feel comfortable in. I'm sure I'll end up in black shorts and an oversized vnecks and just play it up with accessories, it comfy and easy. 

I'll be headed back to Columbia tomorrow for work training and I am excited, but not quite ready to leave, I think I just wanted a day or two more to sleep in, but seeing as though I don't work until 1:3o the rest of the week, that may be possible.

Anyway, I wish you all the best of luck as you start school, strut around your campuses and hallways with style like I know you will.

Stay beautiful,

A New Beginning

Hello everyone! Well, it's probably no surprise, but I did it again. I neglected this blog. It's crazy how much I can be on other social networking sites from day to day, but forget this one. I even update my weight loss blog more often! I decided once school starts, Friday will be Ramen Fashion day. I don't have Friday classes and I won't be working until around noon, that gives me all morning to whip up an outfit! I also hope to be doing some styling for a friends upcoming event, I just need a photographer, or a camera, so get started. 

This summer it kind of hit me that I am half way through college, I've got to start creating a name for myself. I mean, the competition at Mizzou alone is fierce, I can't imagine it nationwide. I want to be great, I will be great and as  Public Relations major, I have not been doing a very good job publicizing myself and building my brand.

Think of this as a new beginning. All of my sets will have my blogs name at the top (which I soon up to buy as a domain) and I will update this blog at least once a week once school starts (August 19). I really want to have something great to show employers as I begin to apply for internships and even jobs. 

So here is my promise to all of you, I, Brittany, will absolutely, postively get better at updating this blog. I love fashion and I know it is the industry I belong in. So no longer will I let my laziness or my timidness get the best of me!

Until next time,

Spring over :(

Spring over :(
Well kiddos, Spring Break is officially coming to a close and I am so sad. No I didn't lay out on a gorgeous beach or anything, but sleeping in, eating whatever I've wanted, not going to the gym has been perfect.

But classes and work start again tomorrow. This is pretty much what I lounged around in all day (except I wish my vneck had giraffes on it!). Didn't do much, but read a bit for my lit class, sit on Tumblr all day and I signed my lease! So yay for a little productivity, but I'm going to have to do better. So much to do this week!

6 weeks and the summer, I can do this!

Easter Attire

Easter Attire

Happy Holy Week to my religious followers! I'm still trying to get into the habit of updating this blog more often, the posts definitely won't be this frequent once I head back to school, but I figured why not post since I've got the time.

Unfortunately, I'll be spending Easter alone in my dorm this year, but it's all good. If were going anywhere, I feel this outfit would be ideal, a bright skirt really makes the entire outfit pop and the wedges are perfect for spring, especially in nude, still a huge staple this season and of course a black blazer and pearl earrings are timeless, you can never go wrong with them.

What are you alls Easter plans? Going to church? Going out with friends or dining alone like myself? No matter what it may be, enjoy your time!

Watch Me Work

Watch Me Work

Not much to say about this, watches are just my newest obsession!

Let's go to the Beach, Beach!

Let's go to the Beach, Beach!

I may be snowed in during my Spring Break, but maybe creating beach inspired Polyvore sets will bring in the spring weather.

But alas, I am in Indiana looking at mounds of snow outside my window, but when I do finally make it to the beach, I hope I can rock this.

This set is plus size inspired, I'm not a size 2 and that's okay because I can still show off my rocking new body on the beach. This suit is perfect, the black slims the entire body and the rouching of the tummy area actually makes your stomach appear flatter than it may be. The halter feature and the keyhole right below the chest draws the eye up at your goodies, which is always nice.

As far as accessories, going to the beach should be simple, diamond studs, your favorite pair of sunglasses and a cute beach bag to carry books, magazines and especially sunscreen, maybe even an inflatable beach ball, just in case you run into some beach cuties ;)

Whether you're shoveling snow today, or laying out on the beach I hope you stay safe, warm and enjoy it!

What a Stud

What a Stud

If you've been watching the award shows this season you know that earrings are a perfect staple to a plain dress or paint suit. In many cases celebs earrings made the outfit. Now, I'm not a fan of dangling earrings or big flashy hoops. but I believe a girl can still get attention with bold statement studs.

These were just a few of my favorites, but this certainly isn't all. Some of my favorite places to shop for earrings are Claire's, Icing, Charming Charlie and Forever 21. Where do you guys like to shop for accessories?

High Low, Anyone?

High Low, Anyone?

Peplum tops aren't the only hot thing out for spring. I've been seeing this high low effect in almost everything: dresses, skirts, shirts, it's very cute (especially for girls like me who like to wear leggings and need their but covered)!

This material is light, will blow just perfectly in the wind and is dramatic enough on it;s own that huge statement pieces aren't really needed. I immediately thought that wedges were the way to go, but then I couldn't find any cute enough, but I love these white shoes and I think it's a nice touch!

Much like the peplum top I have not found a style (in the dress and skirt that is) that I absolutely love, so I'll keep looking I suppose. Anyone know of any good places to look, especially if you're in the Missouri area!

Well, I'm signing off fore thing night, that 8 hour car ride left me pooped.

Stay Beautiful <3


Well, it's been a while hasn't it (so sorry!) It's Spring Break for Mizzou and so naturally I am home for a week, which hopefully means a post a day.

I wish I could say I had an awesome internship lined up this summer or something, but I'll be in Columbia, working and taking a class or two. Sad, but it must be done.

I really need to sit down and look at my schedule to see when I am available to just sit down and post for 30 minutes to an hour. I figured if I am not interning I could at least keep writing and posting polyvore sets. Styling is my ultimate goal, I've got to continue to perfect my eye for fashion.

Unfortunately, I haven't updated my personal wardrobe in some time (*tear*) but with the whole weight loss thing it's been a bit pointless to fall head over heels in love with a clothing item that simply won't fit the same in a month or two.

Anyway, peplum tops seems to be the thing right now and I love it! Prints are also making a come back, so when I saw this shirt, I thought best of both worlds, how perfect! I'm not sure how a peplum skirt, shirt or dress would fit on my body type, but I sure am willing to try one on! If I find one I like pictures will be posted!

What are some of your favorite trends you have been seeing so far?

Stay Beautiful <3
