Freshman Formal

When I was in high school you only went to formals your junior and senior years, but now they have a dance called Freshman Formal. Although I loved shopping with Raleigh and getting her all primped up on the big day, I have mixed feelings about this dance. It's clearly a reason for girls to buy expensive dresses and have their hair and nails done since most 15-year old girls are not allowed to date yet (and yes, Raleigh is not allowed to date yet!).  

As you can see from Raleigh's girl gang, there were 10 girls without dates. And they weren't the only girl gang posted on social media. So who and why did someone decide to put together a formal dance so that the girls could get all gussied up to go out with their girl friends? I'm sure I'll never know, but at least the girls had a blast looking like young princesses ;)

Side Striped

Ahh! The side stripe pant. It doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, huh? I love this pair I got at Zara. It's made of a silky polyester type material so it's not clingy - the perfect airplane pant! I paired it with a white button down and Stella McCartney platform shoes. I can wear this outfit anytime, anywhere....perfection! 

A deal's a deal!

There's nothing better than a deal, right? I love looking online at the end of each season to see if there are deals on items I think will still be in style the next time it's in season. The best way to do this is to look on Pinterest to see what street style personalities are wearing at Fashion Week. It's your own little crystal ball!

I found this Diesel brown leather studded jacket on Yoox for a steal. The white sleeveless shirtdress came from UAL (need I say more?) and the Valentino nude patent leather studded boots came from the Real Real.
