apartment story

Against my public vow (as posted on my Twitter) to go on a shopping strike until further notice... I caved and purchased the above scarf and blue polka dot skirt from H&M this past weekend. In my defense, the skirt was purchased in attempt to replaced a beloved piece that had a tragic mishap with the iron as soon as I arrived here. The scarf... well, is something I guarantee will fulfill its cost per wear. 

I'm really missing home this week due to the holidays, but I've managed to work Thanksgiving into my lesson plans. Thus, I wanted to dress appropriately. I love rich colors this time of year. and I broke out the bow flats because it's usually what I do when I want to feel ultra feminine. 

Hope everyone has a safe and fantastic holiday!

cold dust girl

Hello, lethargy. I woke up this morning with the indications of a slight sore throat coming my way. It could be all the strain on my voice I've been abusing from keeping my 6th graders in check. Yesterday happened to be a whirlwind of calamitous circumstances after the other, so I'm soaking in my freedom to be lazy this weekend. At this point, I just want to lounge in oversized clothing and leggings forever. However, I will break out of the comfort of my little Korean apartment to have dinner in downtown Uij and get my Brad Pitt on to see Moneyball.

change of heart

I just received this skirt in the mail earlier this week, and I la-la-love it. I have another chiffon midi skirt stashed away in my closet that I can't seem to fashion correctly, therefore this is only my second attempt at the trend. It's still a work in progress. I'll continue to play around with it as I finish listening to the no. 1's of The Supremes.

what have you done for me lately

So, my addiction to singing reality tv shows (hay, Sing-off) has me reminiscent of old Janet videos. I had totally forgotten about this song until recently... not to mention the styling in this video, in true 80s fashion, of course. It's also my favorite Janet era; it trumps The Velvet Rope slash 90s days. Although Halloween just passed, this is giving me ideas for next year. 

Must find a gold lamé shirt to add to my wardrobe of impractical purchases.
