A Few New Goodies

posted on: March 2, 2013

new things

I’m happy to announce that my blog is up and running again, not that you couldn’t already tell. I was experiencing a few minor difficulties, you know, growing pains.

I made a few purchases a while ago from forever21.com and gojane.com that of course I want to share with you all.

I’ve never really been one to buy clothes with words on it, but when I saw this white sweater with the quote “Good things come to those who wait” written across it, I thought the words were fitting. I really do believe that good things come to those who wait, but you must hustle while you wait.

When I was a child, my mother had a pair of hoop earrings that were similar in style to the multi-link necklace in the photo above. To me, they were “old lady” earrings that I would never wear, though I liked to pretend they were rings when I played dress up.

Fast forward to 2013, I have now purchased a necklace that looks almost like something I thought was so old fashioned. Either this means I have now become old fashioned or that fashion repeats itself. I believe it’s the latter. There is nothing new under the Sun.

I’m pretty much an addicted to any piece of gold jewelry that is chunky and “loud” so these lion earrings are now my favorite pair. They’re inspired by the Versace earrings that look similar, but will probably disable my back account. Gojane.com has sold out of them, but with a simple “Versace inspired lion earrings” search on google, you may be able to find a similar pair.

Since writing this post, I’ve worn this sweater in a “Good things come to those who wait” OOTD post. I’ve also worn the necklace in “my 22nd birthday” OOTD post as well as a “Citron & Monochrome” OOTD post.

I pin all of my online purchases to Pinterest immediately after I buy them. Check it out my “What’s in My Closet” board.

Chunky Heels are My Weakness

Pleated Cut-Out Platforms2

Thank God it’s Friday.

I just got back to Minnesota two days ago because school opens back up on Monday. Sigh. I almost missed my flight though because somehow I thought it was booked later than it actually was. My mother had been harassing me to check and see the specific date I was leaving and when I checked, I saw that I’d be leaving the following day. #ThankGodForMother

Anyway, I have some new shoes to show you. I got a thang for chunky heels so I purchased these Pleated Cut-Out Platform shoes from gojane.com.

They also come in black and mint green and I actually bought the mint green last summer, but that version of the shoe did not have pleats (click here to see the outfit I wore with them).

They’re definitely not winter friendly (at least not Minnesota winter), but I did not want to wait because the mint green version of these are among my closet faves and of course they won’t be there when the weather is more appropriate. Besides, when parties roll around, it’s amazing the things I’ll wear, and the cold I’ll endure, just too look good.

I know that for some people these shoes are a lot to take in, but I’m extra like that 🙂 Meanwhile, I’m in the process of editing my senior thesis…#LordHelpMe
