Oh yes, I did

IMG_0466 IMG_0470IMG_0462IMG_0473

Blazer: Thrifted, Top: F21, Skirt: F21, Belt: F21, Necklace: F21, Watch: Vintage Gucci, Shoes: Steve Madden
Ok, well for one, who else noticed that this entire outfit basically came from Forever 21? Seriously gotta cut that addiction/obsession/addiction. And two, yes I totally pulled my skirt right up and made it into a top. Bam, y'all! This whole 30 has seriously eaten into my work options. {and I'm feelin' craftyyy}
So I'm laying in bed right now and I've got the munchies. But far too lazy to actually get up and eat something. Probably a good thing, eating right before bed is bad. Right. Don't worry, I'm not going health nut on you guys. I really am just lazy.
Also, I totally have the video, I finally have it uploading through Veoh and we are at about 80% after about 8 hours. So yeah, I'm feeling pretty good about that {aka, psyched after about a bazillion attempts through every other photosharing site.} Just don't make any wagers over when it will be up.
See ya tomorrow guys!
Love,
Ramsey

I think I'm addicted to F21 as well! Isn't it amazing? Plus, it's cheap, haha. Perfect for a broke college student!

I love how you turned your skirt into a top! :) Very smart! And I ADORE those nude pumps! I so need a pair of those in my closet.

And, last but not least, can't wait to see the video!

Mmmkay. Here's the thing.
I got a notification that you commented over in my neck of the woods, so I was just going to stop by tonight and then comment later so I didn't look so stalkerish, but I can't help it.
#1. Your style I am loving
#2. Your photos are incredible.
#3. You are stunningly beautiful.

...so I'm sorry. But I'm just going to have to continue stalking you! :)

Skirt into a top? Genious. I will have to see if any of my skirts can transform like that as well.

Lots of cuteness here as usual!

Saidah said...

Hahahah. You make me laugh. But the skirt works. I say keep it.
And while an addiction to a company that turns over its inventory ever three weeks is not advisable, there are probably worse things. Loving the necklace!

Human Sparkler ♥ said...

you are soo freakin' cute! I did a post where I tucked my dress in as a shirt. It works, but not something I would have ever done before! Very cute outfit!
