work day un-uniform


At my work, we never abide by "uniform" rules, which are black bottoms and white collared shirt. Such an outfit in my opinion (and my manager's, so it's okay) is far too stuffy to wear while selling Hello Kitty merchandise. However, it makes it seem more appropriate if I at least cover a large portion of my body in black.

This is a "work" dress. Usually, the equation is as follows: dress + shirt/light sweater underneath, belt, tights, shoes. Simple enough and can be dressed either up or down depending on my mood. I dressed it up today.

yes, I should iron this dress.



I really love everything that I'm wearing. The belt, bag and shirt in particular. The bag is actually a Coach hand-me-down that my boyfriend's mom gave to me. I love the color and how well it matches with my shoes, which have a tiny bit of a heel though it's hard to tell.


It is off to school tomorrow. Spring term! With no Architecture studio. It's back to my graphic design roots :)


Yep. And I have pictures taken at an actual location again, even though Robert, the boyfriend is in a different state. My friend, Sarah, who goes to the same University as me, who also blogs (at Just Take a Bow) is spending the night. We're planning on making a habit out of this co-operative picture taking game. It makes life a lot more easy and awesome.

  3. Your outfit is adorable! And uhm... i ADORE your glasses! They are so colorfully sweet :) And to respond to your comment, I'm really not much for colors. I was pretty surprised that I actually wore all the colors I did. AND! Oh man I love Little Twin Stars. I used to have a huge collection of them until... I got married :( And now, Sanrio hardly ever makes any LTS stuffs. (plus, there isn't a Sanrio where I live. double sad)
