Etsy ideas...

So.. I was snitching some inspiration off of one of my favorite websites - - and I have come across these adorable bows! I'm thinking they might be pretty easy to make, and the posibilities would be endless for fabrics and so on. Not so sure about the veil though. What do you think of them? Any ideas? Color suggestions? Let me know!

Vera Bradley to the Rescue!

Hey everyone! So I know this post is a little out of season considering it isn't exactly the time of year for back-to-school shopping :P but I just can't resist mentioning this must-have backpack solution! (because I know I'll forget by the time back-to-school season rolls around haha). Anyway, being a freshman, I was quite surprised that nobody seems to use backpacks anymore in High School. Everyone carries these tote bags that fit MAYBE one binder or some just carry a designer shoulder bag. These seem totally impracticle to me, so I chose the backpack route - which induces much taunting, etc. It also detracts from my oh-so-adorable, carefully-selected outfits. I knew there must be a better way. And yes! Vera Bradley has come to the rescue with the most fashionable and FUNCTIONAL backpacks! Not only are they actually usable sizes with many compartments, but they come in all of her awesome prints, too! My favorites are the Mod Floral Pink and the Pinwheel Pink :). Find them at for $92.00!

Favorite Teen Vogue Shoot ♥

So this is my all-time favorite shoot (so far) from Teen Vogue in the December/January 2008 issue, and yes I know that it's old but it's still my favorite. It's called "La Dolce Vita" and the setting is Venice.. which already makes it amazing. I love how perfectly the photographer captured the old world feel of Venice; I truly hope to visit the beautiful City of Water some day, but for now I'll have to settle for seeing it in pictures. However, what truly adds to the shoot is that lovely male model named Gabe *swoon*. It disappoints me that so few of the Teen Vogue photoshoots include male models. I find their clothing is sometimes even more interesting than the girls! Anyway, my rant is over, but I just wanted to share a couple of these fabulous pictures with you.

Fake Glasses!

So I've seen many of these "readers" lately.. and I'm wondering what you think of them. I personally think they're adorable, but I'm sure that people who actually wear glasses think it is silly to wear them if not necessary. They work really nicely for the whole "geek chic" look, and they come in really awesome colors :D
Here are a few of the best suppliers:

Super (My fave! A bit pricy though)
Urban Outfitters
Hot Topic

Most of them range from $8-25, however Super readers are more like $125 :/
