FOTD: Grade A

makeup1

This….is the face of an A.

This is from Wednesday (I know, long layover time, but what can I say, I’ve been SO busy!). On Wednesday I had a presentation for my Media Criticism class and I chose to do it over an analysis of Mean Girls from the Visual Perspective. I was sooooo nervous about it,  you guys have no idea. Plus,to add more stress, I had just finished preparing my presentation that morning! But I confidently presented my work and, all glory to God, I got a 25/25! I was so happy. At any rate I wish I could show you guys my entire presentation look. I was quite cute if I do say so myself! But sadly I didn’t have time to get someone to take a full picture of me before I had to go off to work. I did get some makeup shots, though. Hope you guys like!

OOTD: Dabbling in Aztec

Today was a blazin’ hot day in the southern United States. I spent the majority of it inside filing papers and preparing for final exams (session 1 is almost over, yippeee!!). This is how I faired the weather today..

Gold Hoops: Beauty Supply – $2

Gray Tank: Old Navy – $9

Jean Shirt: Walmart – $10

Belt: Forever 21 – $8.80

Aztec Skirt: Forever 21

Sandals: Don’t remember – $9

The jean shirt was worn in the cold offices and classrooms that i spent much of my time in today. Outdoors, the jean element came straight off, otherwise i’d risk a heat stroke. This outfit is centered around the skirt. A touch of aztec never hurt anyone! &if you glance at this little aztec number, you’ll see I got a little mint in there too…trend bonus!

Until Next Time!

Trendspotting : Mint

Hello blog-loves! I do these trendspotting post to keep you all abreast on what is hot, hot, hot right now. & right now mint is the IT color of the season. This cool color is blazin’ up the runways, fashion mags, and the streets of fashionable cities worldwide. Incorporate a little mint in your style by wearing a mint nail polish or piece of mint jewelry, or go all out with a pair of mint skinnies or a mint blazer. Check out a few of my picks for adorable mint pieces below…

Trendspotting : Retro Swimwear

Doesn’t Marilyn look beautiful? Gotta Love Miss Monroe. And the style of swimsuits that were popular in her hay-day are making a major comeback in Summer 2012. Many designers are creating fashionable one pieces cut similar to the one she is wearing while others immolate the style in bikinis by using bandeau style halter bikini tops and high-waisted bottoms. The retro style is very complimentary to a curvy shape, accentuating curves without making them look bulbous or slutty and the extra fabric that comes in a swimsuit style like this does well to hide any major problem areas you might have. Retro style swimsuits are very chic and trendy right now and they are a great way to look fab while being comfortable in your own skin at the beach this season. Here are a couple of cute ones I’ve found.
