And The Oscar Goes To...

It has been my dream for a very long time to host an Oscars party. And tonight my dream came true! I hosted my very first one. A few close friends came over and we voted on who we thought would win and of course wore our red carpet finest.

I even had a little piece of red carpet to take pictures on. Here are a few of the best shots of the night...

But I know the question on all y'all's minds is....who am I wearing?

J. Crew.

But my favorite look of the night was Ms. Cate Blanchett, wearing Givenchy

Hey Y'all

I might be a little absent in the coming weeks. I know sad right? But don't worry. Just because I'm not blogging doesn't mean I'm not wearing clothes.

Oh My Goodness, Yes!

Please look here. College Fashion. You're my hero.

New Things

I'm trying a couple of different things today. One: this outfit. But not in the "this is the first time I have worn this outfit kind of way", in the "this is not something I would normally wear kind of way." I have been wanting to wear winter shorts for a while but I never had the courage to do so. Apparently, today I was feeling a little ballsy and decided to try it. I think my first attempt turned out okay. Although I was pretty cold, but there's not much difference between wearing shorts and wearing a dress, warmth wise.

two: see the numbers on my photo? I wanted to do something different to show where my clothes are from. I was getting bored with just listing it at the bottom. So I'm doing this.

1. Forever 21
2. Target
3. Target
4. Kohl's
5. Forever 21

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For Ice Cream

I love reading Sydney's (The Daybook) Awesome and Awkward Thursdays. Most of the time I find myself laughing and cringing right along with her awkwards. So today I decided to do my own...

- The fact that Sydney had turning your feet in in a photo as an awkward. I do that all the time.
- Having someone say, "hey I'm in that class with you." You are? Oops.
- Noticing that a guy in one of my classes was wearing a $335 Burberry scarf....with sweat pants. Actually, that's just awkward for him.
- Saying you're welcome before someone says thank you. That's the worst.
- Talking wayy too loud on the bus. Sorry y'all.
- Calling Robinson Crusoe a sociopath in class.

- Waking up, snuggled next to Chris
- Not working for the next 5 days
- Overhearing someone of the bus say there is 32 days until spring break. NYC here I come!
- Sweet Eugene's cinnamon roles
- Vampire Diaries with my friends tonight. (psst chelsea & chelsey...I'm making enchiladas!)
- The pizza that's in the oven right now.
- The awesome scarf I wore today. Ice cream cone, how cool are you!
- Which reminds me of...making silly jokes with Chris. We passed by Cold Stone last night around 6 and it was closed. There was a note on the door. Our assumption of what it said: "It's freaking cold outside. Go get a hot chocolate."

I Got A Great Surprise Today

It was 9:45 and I was at work, 15 minutes away from closing, and I was super ready to go home. I look over across the room and see a shirt that looks familiar and then I see a face that looks familiar. It's the boyfriend!

He surprised me at work! Which is kind of a big deal because he doesn't live in my town. So he drove all the way up here to see me. Aren't I a lucky girl?

Project "Cleanin' Out My Closet" Is Complete

I did it you guys! I successfully clean and organized my closet. I even got some dry cleaning done that I have been needing to do for probably about three years. And goodness gracious is dry cleaning expensive!

But here it is, my new closet.

Now that my closet is cleaned I have noticed some things that my wardrobe is lacking. Things like:
1. A light colored blazer. I have 3 black and 1 navy, but no light color blazers.
2. A blazer is the only thing I can think of right now. Don't judge me, it's been a long day.

Just Around The River Bend

Okay, don't laugh at me, but I didn't know that Pocahontas didn't marry John Smith. Instead she married some bloke name John Rolfe, who she just so happened to fall in love with after she was kidnapped and held prisoner in Jamestown.

This kind of ruins everything for me. I really love Disney's Pocahontas. But there are so many historical mistakes in that movie it is insane. They probably shouldn't have even called it Pocahontas. They should have called it Avatar....oh right, that's another movie with the same premise.

But all of this knowledge was brought about from my children's literature class. Guess I did actually learn some stuff in college.

On to my outfit...I'm in love with my shoes. I have been eying them at Forever 21 since I finished my 30x30 in the Fall. I finally got them and boy, I couldn't love them more!

Phase 1 Complete

I have officially cleaned my closet out! Aren't you proud of me?

I spent a good portion of Monday going through my clothes and getting rid of the ones that either A. don't fit, or B. I couldn't remember the last time I wore it. It was a lot easier than I expected it to be, considering I have cleaned out my closet many times before and never had the kind of results that I had this time.

So check it out...all of my clothes boxed up.

Now on to the organizing. Ugh.
