4/27/07: Roman Holiday

"Your foot talks, you know." - John Galliano

I just received these beauties in the mail on Wednesday. I bought the pair in cream as well. Practical and very grecian-like, I'll be wearing them until the day they fall completely apart. At a great price of $16.80, who could turn them down?

4/21/07: School Daze

"Fashion is crud. Style is what matters." - Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide

Uhhhh, I'm not quite sure about the quote above ^^. Here's a picture of a style savvy girl at my school. She was voted, "Best Style" in our school yearbook this year.

4/17/07: Graduation Time, Come On!

“A witch and a bitch always dress up for each other, because otherwise the witch would upstage the bitch, or the bitch would upstage the witch, and the result would be havoc.”- Tennessee Williams

June 15, 2007 - the last day of middle school. Just thinking about it makes chills run up and down my spine - high school, here I come. Well, there has been a lot of talk about graduation dresses. Krystal says, "I'm wearing one for the ceremony, one for the party." Hayley says, "You HAVE to wear black to the party - the theme is red carpet!" I say, "I need to be an individual... I'm not going to follow the crowd and find a beauty pageant-esque Macy's junior department dress. I'm going for a more - grecian approach. On an attempt to find my mum a tablecloth for her dinner party on Saturday, we ended up at Bloomingdales - yet the linens were in the most obscure, ugly colors and prints. I dragged her up to floor 4, my favorite - and we scouted throughout all the racks of Free People, Juicy Couture, Splendid, and BCBG until we found this perfect beauty. It was totally me - and fit well, too! I'll pair it with some gladiators, or cute brown flats - to make it totally unique - and totally my own. The price was, eh.... pretty high, but the dress is now my "8th grade graduation present." I have many ideas of ways I can dress it up for parties, and dress it down for school or shopping. No doubt about it - I'll walk down to receive my graduation certificate in style looking chic.

4/12/07: Fashion Hits the Bullseye!

“It is difficult, if not impossible, for most people to think otherwise than in the fashion of their own period.” - George Bernard Shaw

Spring has sprung, and summer is on its way. One problem - my old shorts are too small, my shirts seem too 7th grade, and my flip flops and flats are worn and dirty. My resolution to this fashion funk? I logged on to, and immediately clicked to the junior's section, where I found tons of great spring and summer pieces that will work with my wardrobe. Dresses, shirts, flats, and accessories - I've got it covered. The best part? They're all inexpensive, leaving me with extra bucks for something splurge-worthy.

4/11/07: Vacation's Where I Wanna Be...

"Fashion is an imposition, a reign on freedom." - Golda Meir
Due to my lovely spring break this week, there will be a lack of posting until Sunday or Monday - I'm at the beach and my little brother won't give up his beloved Mac for one second. I'll refrain from posting till I get back home on Saturday. Sunday is going to be spent with my mum at Bloomingdales, H&M, Forever 21, and other shopping meccas.
Who What Wear Daily can tide you off for now :)
Have a nice week!
- Lauren

4/5/07: Feeling Groovy

“As to matters of dress, I would recommend one never to be first in the fashion nor the last out of it.” - John Wesley

I need to take a Union Square run down to one of the many H and Ms in San Fran to hunt down this beauty. It reminds me of the clothes my mother would've worn in the 70s as a teenager. Perfect for a cool, breezy spring day at the beach or in Starbucks, huddled in the squishy booth in the corner, sipping a mocha frappucino. Oh, I need to get into the city and raid H and M of all the cutest, hippie threads I can find.

I'm also gushing over these Free People sandals. Would work perfect with a burnt orange hippie dress and big leather belt. I'm reminiscing my third grade trip to the Miwok village, where we spent the day frolicking among the tall grasses, learning about the Native American culture. These are the perfect mix between California hippie cool and Native American clothing. With all the bright colors, they'll fit perfectly with my jewelry and array of multi-colored belts.

4/3/07: The Fanny pack is Back?

"My dream is to save women from nature." - Christian Dior

The horrendous pouch my mother wore on her butt in the 90s has returned - as high fashion? Gucci sells fanny packs - this is stooping too low. The fanny pack is unnatractive, highly unfashionable, and is a disgrace to the fashion world. This is one 90s trend that shouldn't repeat itself.

4/2/07: Yellow Like the Sunshine

“Style is an expression of individualism mixed with charisma. Fashion is something that comes after style.” - John Fairchild

All my life, I've hated the color yellow with a passion. It looks like puke on me, and I only admire it when people with dark skin wear it, because it brings out their lovely skin tone. I've always thought it was bland and putrid, yet now, my opinion has changed. Strangely, all the yellow accessories and apparel this season has made me want to go out and buy an entire yellow wardrobe! I'm especially fond of these picks for the spring.
