Wishlist Wed: Ignoring the Real

Wishlist Wed: Ignoring the Real
You know who loves shopping?
This girl.
You know who is completely broke?
THIS girl.
The sad truth has come to light, I make up countless outfits using items that are way out of my budget (some of my recent daydreams include this and this) but I recently found a solution to this horrible way of self destruction.
Splurge vs. Save options!
Take a gander at the options above, the cheaper items aren’t that different than the expensive version.  For a college girl who loves clothes too much for her own good, this is like a gift sent from heaven.
Research into the item you want and try to find a dupe, no one will ever know the difference :]

girl gone wild

…with colors! (is it M.D.N.A or Madonna?).  Don’t know anymore, but I do know that color blocking has been one of the funnest trends to try.  A week back, Derek (http://fromshoestospecs.blogspot.com) and I embarked on a photo-shoot with Colin, a super talented student with mad camera skills.

I went for a bold approach (obviously) and I loved the end result.  I kept it casual by adding the trusted jean jacket, a serious wardrobe staple.  Color blocking is one of the trickiest trends to pull off because it has to be cohesive.  Try combining soft colors within the same color wheel first, for example mint with navy, then progress into diva territory.  Go for yellow and purple, orange and pink- be fun and fearless!

With the heat creeping up on us rather steadily, I suggest the outfits below for a summer friendly version.
