I Love College

So, the past week I've had a chance to do a couple of fun photoshoots, but no time to share any of the pictures I took because I've been so busy! It was the last week of classes, so naturally I had a ton of work to do... and yesterday was slope day, which is basically a celebratory day of drunken debauchery with concerts on our giant slope. And yes it does have it's own wikipedia article, haha. I didn't see much of the concert itself- though can't say I'm all that upset about missing the Pussycat Dolls or Asher Roth- and I did have to do a presentation in class at 12:20, which was kind of a bummer, but the day was still great. Tonight we have our formal, which I should start getting ready for soon, but I thought I'd share a few photos with you, especially seeing as next week starts studying for finals... aka I am probably not going to have very many photo worthy outfits... though I will still find things to blog about I'm sure.

Anyway, the final presentation that culminated yesterday was for my theater design class and I was doing lighting design. I only wish I had realized sooner what a great place to take photos the light lab is.

You can click the pictures to enlarge them if you wish.

Oh, and the lovely bald lady's name is Mannique. She is one of our lighting models.

You can also kind of see my "new" watch in one of these pictures. It was my dad's from the '70s and I'll try to post about it later this week.

Also, I finally got a chance to photograph the sailor dress I've been talking about. I bought it kind of on a whim when the dress I really wanted, from libemarlene, was way out of my price range. I was afraid I would regret it, and while it's a little small (I can't button the top and it's a bit tight in the shoulders) it's still perfectly wearable and I've decided I'm really very happy with it. One bonus is that it's a slightly more wintery dress, and while I'm lusting after light, summery dresses right now, over time, I'll probably get much more wear out of this one.

Also, a big thanks to the stylish wanderer for these shoes. I got them after seeing them on her blog and they are now probably one of my most frequently sported pairs of flats -- I adore them!



  1. I love the last picture of the 2nd outfit. The lighting is perfection and the shoes are really cute! I've been in love with those other shoes since seeing them on the stylish wanderer, too.

  2. I love your flats! Thanks for the comment. It's really encouraging to know that someone still reads my pathetic little blog haha. Hopefully, Oberlin will be what I hope for. Thanks again!

  3. Your feel-better list was amazing. Thank you so much! I feel much better actually, especially after reading your delightful comment.
    And I'm really into those jeans. They're such an unexpected cut but I am enthralled. And that shade of teal is spectacular on you.

  4. I love the dress your wearing!! and those shoes are amazing.

  5. I love the bow flats. And that red dress. Buy it!
