OOTD: Thrift Shopping 11/25/17

Hey everyone! A few weeks back, two of my friends and I went thrift shopping in the East Village and Lower East Side of Manhattan. I've always liked the idea of thrift shopping, but I never end up buying many items. There are so many thrift stores in New York, so I am excited to start trying to find more items from these places. On November 25, I went shopping at AuH2O (Goldwater - located 84 E 7th street) and The Monk (located on 97 E 3rd street). I only bought two items, a blue and back flannel jacket and white sunglasses (now known as 'clout goggles' or Kurt Cobain sunglasses). There will definitely be photos of me wearing the sunglasses soon...(possibly on New Year's!).

                                                                             My outfit
                                       Fake Ripped High-waisted Jeans - American Eagle Outfitters
                                       Black and Blue Flannel Jacket  - AuH2O (thrifted for $17)
                                                             Adidas Stan Smith Sneakers
                                                    Long-sleeved black shirt - Forever 21

                          My grandmother had a huge scarf collection, so my pink roses scarf is from her.

Originally Nikki, Marina, and I went into The Cure (a thrift shop located on 111 E 12th street), and it is very nice in there, but the prices aren't really what we were looking for.  We found a fur coat that was over $300, so we decided that this place was a bit too expensive, but they had some very good pieces of clothing. Unfortunately, we weren't willing to pay those prices.

The Cure has very eccentric items of clothing. Unlike other thrift stores, such as L Train Vintage, they have a certain aesthetic of clothing they are trying to upkeep. Many of the pieces have bright patterns on them.

The Cure had everything from home decorations to sandals to ugly Christmas sweaters.

After going to The Cure, my friends and I went to lunch at Wagamama (located on 210 5th Ave).  We all got different orders of ramen. My order was ramen with tofu, sprouts, an omelette, and mushrooms. We also had edamame and a chicken dish for appetizers.

After we finished thrifting, Nikki and I went to ViVi Bubble Tea (located on 5002 5th Ave). This place's bubble tea is so good. We ordered our drinks with cotton candy on it, and there is a whole order on how to drink the bubble tea. I definitely recommend this place!

I hope you enjoyed this post. I plan on doing more posts similar to this because I love doing different activities in New York City. 

Have you ever been thrift shopping? What places where you live do you recommend?

Book Review: Turtles All The Way Down

Hey everyone. Happy December! I know that lately seems that my posts have been sporadic, but the month of December has always been a big posting month for This Fashion Girl. Today, I am going to do a review on Turtles All The Way Down by John Green.

I am a fan of John Green. I've read The Fault in Our Stars, Looking for Alaska, Will Grayson Will Grayson, and Papertowns. I started an Abundance of Katherines, but I didn't like it at the time and definitely need a re-read. John Green hasn't released a book in five years (because of writer's block & a multitude of other things), but he recently released Turtles All The Way Down. I  didn't purchase it, but it was in my school's library so I had to read it.

Synopsis from GoodReads:
Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.

Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts. 

My Thoughts:

At first, I wasn't very fond of the book. The point of view is a teenage girl named Aza, who has severe anxiety. Half the book is her brain "spiraling" as she calls it. She'll be eating a sandwich and her thoughts will go from the sandwich to all the bacteria in her stomach digesting it. She doesn't connect with any characters well and doesn't relate well to her best friend, Daisy, until more than halfway through the book. Daisy is the only character who actually calls Aza out on how she doesn't seem to have an interest in anyone but herself. Aza's thoughts and anxiety cause her to do some crazy things such as drink hand sanitizer, periodically open up a wound, and obsessively wash her hands.  It was slightly awkward reading about Aza in the beginning because John Green does a scarily good job of writing from the view of a 15-year-old girl.

I am not going to keep talking bad about Aza because she does eventually become more interesting. My favorite character is Davis. He is the son of a rich billionaire who went into hiding the night before his house was supposed to be raided by the CIA. Davis cares a lot for Aza and for his brother. He makes endless compromises to try to ease Aza's anxiety. He is very multi-dimensional and writes a blog where he quotes Shakespeare and relates it to how he is feeling at the moment. He also knows a lot about astronomy, and there are a ton of references to the stars in the book.

The overall plot of the book is a young girl's life in Indiana, where her thoughts overtake her actions. The way the book is written gave me a bit of anxiety because John Green makes it seem as if you are spiraling with Aza's thoughts. The subplot about the missing billionaire is relevant to the book, but it's not the entire book. I did like this book, but it is not my all-time favorite John Green book (that would be Looking for Alaska).

Turtles All The Way Down is recommended for young adults, and I believe it's perfectly suited for that age group. John Green, as usual, has done an amazing job writing this book.

Some Favorite Quotes:

“The worst part of being truly alone is you think about all the times you wished that everyone would just leave you be. Then they do, and you are left being, and you turn out to be terrible company.” 

"I thought, lying there, that I might love him for the rest of my life. We did love each other- maybe we never said it, and maybe love was never something we were in, but it was something I felt. I loved him, and I thought, maybe I will never see him again, and I'll be stuck missing him, and isn't that so terrible"

"You remember your first love because they show you, prove to you, that you can love and be loved, that nothing in this world is deserved except for love, that love is both how you become a person, and why."

“Spirals grow infinitely small the farther you follow them inward, but they also grow infinitely large the farther you follow them out.” 

“One of the challenges with pain--physical or psychic--is that we can really only approach it through metaphor. It can't be represented the way table or a body can. In some ways, pain is the opposite of language.”

“Most adults are just hollowed out. You watch them try to fill themselves up with booze or money or God or fame or whatever they worship, and it all rots them from the inside until nothing is left but the money or the booze or God they though would save them. Adults think they are wielding power, but really power is wielding them.”

I hope you guys liked this review. Have you read this book yet? Comment below!

See you all with more posts this week, it'll be a shortened version of Blogmas.

Book Review: The Dollhouse

Hey everyone! I'm back with another book review. Recently, I joined my school's book club and we read The Dollhouse by Fiona Davis. I am really glad that I am apart of book club because I feel like I wouldn't have discovered this book if it wasn't for it.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Fiona Davis's stunning debut novel pulls readers into the lush world of New York City's glamorous Barbizon Hotel for Women, where in the 1950s a generation of aspiring models, secretaries, and editors lived side by side while attempting to claw their way to fairy-tale success, and where a present-day journalist becomes consumed with uncovering a dark secret buried deep within the Barbizon's glitzy past.

When she arrives at the famed Barbizon Hotel in 1952, secretarial school enrollment in hand, Darby McLaughlin is everything her modeling agency hall mates aren't: plain, self-conscious, homesick, and utterly convinced she doesn't belong—a notion the models do nothing to disabuse. Yet when Darby befriends Esme, a Barbizon maid, she's introduced to an entirely new side of New York City: seedy downtown jazz clubs where the music is as addictive as the heroin that's used there, the startling sounds of bebop, and even the possibility of romance.

Over half a century later, the Barbizon's gone condo and most of its long-ago guests are forgotten. But rumors of Darby's involvement in a deadly skirmish with a hotel maid back in 1952 haunt the halls of the building as surely as the melancholy music that floats from the elderly woman's rent-controlled apartment. It's a combination too intoxicating for journalist Rose Lewin, Darby's upstairs neighbor, to resist—not to mention the perfect distraction from her own imploding personal life. Yet as Rose's obsession deepens, the ethics of her investigation become increasingly murky, and neither woman will remain unchanged when the shocking truth is finally revealed.

My Thoughts:

I really liked this book because it had a very unique plot. The book switches between Rose, a journalist, whose life has turned upside down in the span of a few days in 2016, and Darby, a woman who moved from Ohio to New York, in 1952. I love books that have flashbacks and the point of view of multiple characters, hence why All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr is one of my favorite books. 

I found the character Rose slightly annoying. She becomes obsessed with the lives of the women that live in her building that were alive when a maid was killed in the '50s. I understood that she was a journalist, but I feel like there should have been more consequences for actions, especially living in someone's apartment for two weeks without them knowing. She deals with a lot of relationship problems (both romantic and with family), and it's obvious that her coping mechanism isn't the best. 

I liked Darby because her point of view was so interesting. She is a young girl that moves from Ohio to New York to go to secretary school. She meets Esme, a maid at the Barbizon Hotel where she lived and gets introduced the jazz scene of the 50s. Darby's life becomes so much more interesting once she meets Sam Buckley, a chef at a downtown Manhattan jazz club. There's so much character development that happens to Darby. She goes from this shy, small-town girl to a woman who truly finds herself. Unfortunately, when there's the time jump she's not like that. 

This book is meant for adult readers, but there's a very thin line between young adult and adult The Dollhouse. There are a few sexual scenes, but those are only a few pages long and not a huge part of the overall plot. I recommend this book because it's easy to read and gets you hooked on page one. 

I hope you look into this book because it's definitely a great read!

Question: What books are you currently reading right now?

Halloween 2017 + Life Update

Hey everyone! I know it's been awhile, and I should've have posted yesterday to be back on track, but everything has been hectic lately. I've been very focused on my school work and applying for college, so I needed to take a small break from posting. As of now, I am finished with my applications (which is so scary!), and I am ready to back into the weekly schedule of posting on Sundays. There will be a few more posts to catch you guys up on my life, but get ready for your weekly posts again! On another note, I have been writing for Affinity Magazine, and GLUE Magazine to further expand my writing. Both are teen run magazines, and super fun to be apart of! You can see all my posts in the tab on the top of the page called, 'Other Places I Write'

Another reason why I haven't been posting lately is that I have been planning a feminism/gender equality summit at my school, and that has taken up a lot of my time. I am the co-president of my school's feminism club, which put me in the position to plan the summit, and it has been a lot of work but I am so excited for it. Some of the speakers are Maria Cuomo Cole, Doreen St.Felix, Jeannie Gaffigan, and so many other wonderful people. I can't wait to meet them, and write all about it!

Every year I write about Halloween (ex: 2015 and 2016) and this year is no different, despite it being a few weeks late.  This year, I dressed up as Steven Hyde from That 70's Show. The actor, Danny Masterson, has been accused of sexual assault recently, so as much as I am not a fan of him; Hyde is one of my favorite characters from the show.

My Outfit
Denim Jacket - Forever 21
Patched Jeans - American Eagle 
Turquoise Socks - American Eagle (?) - purchased in 2015
Keith Richards for President shirt 
Pink Sunglasses - Urban Outfitters 
Gray Turtleneck - L.L. Bean 
Adidas Stan Smiths

Picture of Steven Hyde from That 70s' Show

My friends and I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to take photos in our costumes.

Trudi was dressed as a fairy.

Marina was dressed as a character from Stranger Things (so...80s style). 

Nikki was dressed up as a bear. 

Almost everything thing I am wearing is my own. The only thing I borrowed was the Keith Richards shirt because the only band t-shirt I own is One Direction from 2013.

What did you dress up as for Halloween this year? I hope you liked this post, and I will be back with another one in a few days!

Book Review: The Hate U Give

Hey everyone! I have recently read an amazing book called The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. Back in August I had done a post about books I wanted to read, and this book was number one on the list. Since this book was published in 2017, it's more expensive because there are only new editions out, I borrowed it from my school's library. I haven't been reading a lot recently, which I am quite sad about, but I am getting back into it.

Synopsis from GoodReads:

"Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.

Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil's name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

But what Starr does or does not say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life."

My Thoughts: 

The Hate U Give needed to be written. In the news for the last few years, there's been talk about the #BlackLivesMatter movements and police brutality; this book hits it all. Starr, the main character,is a witness to her unarmed friend getting murdered by a police officer. She has to deal with the scarring incident, but also with a series of other events. Starr deals with people from her neighbor not thinking she's "black enough" because she goes to a prominently white school and has a white boyfriend. She deals with people from her own school calling her friend, Khalil, a thug because he was involved with sketchy business before getting killed. She deals with news reporters making it seem like Khalil deserved to be killed, and that she was an unreliable source. The list goes on and on about the things she goes through, yet she's incredibly strong throughout it all. 

This book also talks a lot about how the media discredits many witnesses to unarmed murders, and changes the way the deceased person is viewed. In the book, Khalil is made out to be a thug by the officer who shot him because the officer didn't want to be put in jail for murder. The news made the officer seem like the victim and how he was "fearing for his life," even though he's one that pulled the trigger. This situation is incredibly real and happened with many cases in the last few years. Starr mentions a lot of these cases such as Emmett Till, Eric Gardner, Trayvon Martin, and so many other black men and women who were unarmed and killed by police officers. 

Another thing I liked about this book was that the main character is a strong female. Although the amount of female characters in literature is growing, there's still a lack of female black girls. On this note, men have been writing for a lot longer than women have in history, so it's important that there is more female representation. Starr is a unique and comedic character, and gives representation to many girls throughout the world. Angie Thomas really did a good job with character development of Starr, but also with her family. Starr's mother is a very successful doctor, and she is a great influence on Starr. Even the other girl characters in this book like Maya and Kenya were very three dimensional. 

The Hate U Give is very important because Starr shows how a girl can do anything, but also how you have to speak out to be heard. The book sheds a light on how to advocate for something you believe in. It doesn't have to be just by marching, but through social media; Starr makes a tumblr account to show who the real Khalil was.  Starr shows how to cope with death, deal with broken friendships, start fresh, and to be an overall good person no matter what happens. This book will be a look into what it's like to live in 2017 for years to come. 

Some Favorite Quotes:

“Sometimes you can do everything right and things will still go wrong. The key is to never stop doing right.” 

“At an early age I learned that people make mistakes, and you have to decide if their mistakes are bigger than your love for them.” 

“That's the problem. We let people say stuff, and they say it so much that it becomes okay to them and normal for us. What's the point of having a voice if you're gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn't be?” 

“I’ve seen it happen over and over again: a black person gets killed just for being black, and all hell breaks loose. I’ve Tweeted RIP hashtags, reblogged pictures on Tumblr, and signed every petition out there. I always said that if I saw it happen to somebody, I would have the loudest voice, making sure the world knew what went down. Now I am that person, and I’m too afraid to speak.” 

I really hope that you read this book. Also, this book is being turned into a movie! Starr Carter is being played by Amandla Stenberg (from the Hunger Games!), and Sabrina Carpenter is also in it. 

Thanks for reading!!

OOTN: Dinner at Nobu

Hey everyone! I am back for another Sunday post (I know I skipped a week awhile back). Last month, it was my dad's birthday so we went to Nobu for dinner. Despite how hot the weather has previously been in New York City, I wore pants and definitely had to take photos in them. Also, the food at Nobu is so good and I took photos of that too.

Pictures of Food ( I don't know the name of it, but it's very pretty)

 This was a tuna tar tar dish, that my family split between the three of us. The green olive-looking item was actually a small peach.

 I believe this was also a tuna dish, but I am not certain. I loved the display of this dish.

 The lobster dish was absolutely amazing, and once again the presentation was so nice. The lobster corpse was there for show, and we didn't have to do any of the work to eat it ourselves.

 This was an octopus appetizer. I keep describing everything as amazing, but this restaurant is a bit pricey, but 100% worth it.

 Nobu is an Asian Fusion restaurant, and they have everything from sushi to cooked meals.

                                  Mochi!!!! I am absolutely obsessed with this dessert.

 Nobu Downtown is located in the original New York AT&T building, and it was cool to see the old building with such a hip, new restaurant.

My Outfit:
Red Top - Macy's
Pattern Pants - Macy's
Heeled Boots - Thrift Shopped from Buffalo Exchange

I know this was a quick post, but I am back on my posting game. Hope you guys like this insight into my life. Also, we are so close to 70,000 views on this blog (that's crazy!!). 

See you guys with a new post next Sunday (it's a book review!)

I Was Nominated for the Liebster Award

Hey everyone! Last month I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Chloe from Chloe Isabelle Turner to answer the questions she's asked. So, I am just going to get to it!

1. If you could meet a celebrity dead or alive, who would it be and why?

I would love to meet Emma Watson. I think she's such an inspiration because she's a human rights activist and creator of HeforShe, went to college while acting, a style inspiration, and an amazing actress. She is so classy, and I overall a great person. If I ever had the chance to meet her, I would probably cry. 

2. Would you like to move to another country? – If not, why? If yes, where?

Although there is a lot of political turmoil in the United States, I am very luck to have grown up in New York. The U.S has so many different areas to visit. For example, California is so warm all year around, but then Nevada has a desert, and Kansas has cornfields and farms, and the East Coast has mountain ranges. I don't think I would ever move out of the United States completely, but I would definitely live in other countries for different amounts of time (definitely England, and or some other european countries). I really want to travel, but I think America (New York more importantly) will always be my home.

3. Would you rather sail around the world in a small boat or climb Mount Everest?

I  rather sail around the world in a small boat because I don't think I would be able to handle the whole climb up Mount Everest.

4. What fictional character would you most like to meet and why?

I would 100% want to meet Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series. She's the ideal female character because she never left Harry, independent, intelligent, and can stand up for herself. She is also such a role model to young girls to work hard in school, and be their own person. 

5. What 3 destinations would you most like to visit? 

 I really want to visit Portland (Oregon), Paris (France), and Thailand. They are such different places, but I always watch so many Youtube videos about them.

6. How would you describe your style?

I am starting to learn my style a lot more lately. I really like 90s styles like boyfriend jeans, denim, and turtlenecks, but I am more into bohemian styles. I love pattered pants, and flowy dresses in purples, reds, and blues. 

7. Do you have any favourite bloggers or youtubers? – Who are they?

I have a few blogger friends that I have definitely mentioned in the past who I adore. My favorite youtubers are Acacia Brinley Clark, Amanda Steele, David Dobrik, and DamonandJo. 

8. Why did you start blogging?

I originally started blogging when I was about 11 on a Hunger Games Blog that I created which is pretty embarrassing. I started This Fashion Girl because I always liked the idea of having a blog, and then I saw the Disney movie called Frenemies and there's a part where two girls (Bella Thorne & Zendaya) start an online magazine and it became popular. I wanted to be able to have my own part of the internet and maybe have some success in blogging eventually.

9. Describe yourself in 3 words

Imaginative, Overthinker, and Passionate

10. Who inspires you?

I am a huge feminist, so basically any woman who is pushing herself to better the planet and make strives to equality inspire me. Women like Emma Watson, Zendaya, Rowan Blanchard, Millie Brown, Yara Shahidi, and Elaine Weltheroth are all very inspiring women.

11. What’s your favorite post you have written so far? 

This post: because it was my first fashion post in a very long time and I loved spending the time to talk about all my favorite trends.

I don't have a ton of bloggers that I can tag because a lot of people have done this tag. I am tagging everyone that wants to answer my questions! Just let me know if you do it because I would love to see the answers. Here are the questions:

1. Where is your favorite place to go? (Can be anything from a restaurant to a country)
2. Do you have a pet? What's their name?
3. What are your hopes for your blog?
4. What is your dream job?
5. If you could learn any language, what would it be?
6. What's your favorite book?
7. Who's your favorite musician at the moment?
8. What's your must-have clothing item?
9. What's your favorite sport? (if you have one)
10. What's one thing on your bucket list?
11. What's your favorite past time?

If you want to comment any of the answers to the questions, go for it! I want to know your answers to these questions :)

Fall Shopping Haul *September 2017*

Hey everyone! How is September treating you? As you know, I love everything about the Fall/ Autumn. I love the styles, and the weather so much. The only slight sadness is going back to school which means back to studying, tests, and waking up early. But, there are so many back to school sales! In August, I went to the Tanger Outlets in Riverhead, Long Island to get the best deals on Fall Clothing. I go to a catholic school, which means that I wear uniform, I took the opportunity to buy clothes I can wear on dress down days and weekends. Here is what I bought :)

Vera Bradley 

I have quite a bit of trips planned for my senior year such as weekends at my friends' houses, skiing, and to Washington D.C., and I needed a new duffle bag that would fit everything I need. This bag was originally $120, and it was 70% off, which meant I only paid $36 for this huge duffle bag. I love the pattern of this bag, and the colors all go together so nicely.  I can't wait to use it!

Nine West 

 As much as I love handbags, I needed to be real with myself...and get something I'll use more. I bought a cute, small-ish, fashionable backpack from Nine West. I've never shopped there before, but my mother took me there and I was immediately drawn to the backpacks. I can definitely use this bag for going around the city, a day trip, or just to bring my computer and books on a vacation. I like the bag because it's small enough to make the distinction between going on a day trip and going to school. I can also style this with an array of outfits.

Nine West Backpack $60

Calvin Klein

At the Tanger Outlets, other stores give coupons that are valid only for that day. For example, my family and I went to Nike, and they gave us a 10% off coupon for Calvin Klein. I bought a sports bra (with cool back straps), and an "athletic" shirt that's so comfy I would rather wear it as pajamas.

(Kinda) Funny Story: I recently bought a black and white Calvin Klein dress from Century 21 for $50, and I saw the exact same dress but in red in the store for around $90. This has happened a few times, when I found the same article of clothing for cheaper at other places (it's a good thing to shop around).

American Eagle Outfitters

AEO is one of my favorite stores! I can always find good jeans, fun dresses, and cute shirts. First, I bought a $30 book bag for my senior year. I was in need of a good bag to fit my computer and binders. Since it's my last year of high school, I decided that I would go with the bag I found the best, rather than the usual one I always used (it's been through a lot).

AEO was having the buy one get one half off sale on jeans/jeggings. I bought three pairs of high waisted "jeggings", which are more like really stretchy jeans. Honestly, how did the early 2000s celebrities where low-rider jeans! High waisted are soooo much better! I can't wait to where these pants throughout the Fall and Winter.

I love socks! I bought two pairs of shoes on this day too, so I needed gray socks to go with it. AEO has the comfiest socks, and honestly if my mom wasn't there; I would've bought more pairs.

I'm not the biggest fan of shirts with words on it, but I really like this shirt. If you've been reading this blog for awhile, you would know how big of a feminist I am. I am glad AEO is selling shirts with sayings like this to promote feminism and women empowerment. Girls can do anything! Also, I will 100% be wearing this shirt with one of my new pairs of jeans.

 My camera was being annoying, and this is the only shot of this shirt I got (but, there's an outfit of the day coming out with this shirt on!). This shirt is cropped and long sleeve, and has an elastic around the waist. I pair it with high waisted jeans, and it black boots or slip ons.

 This is just regular gray t-shirt with flowers, but I thought the pattern was so pretty. I am planning on wearing this shirt with a ripped denim jacket (from Forever 21 below!).

Forever 21

For me, Forever 21 is a hit or miss store. I can sometimes go in there and find tons of clothes, and other times I'll get only a few items. This time, I bought two items and I am perfectly happy with them. The denim jacket was $32 and is a sturdy jacket. Usually denim is so much more expensive, and I wasn't originally looking for a jacket, so I was pleasantly shocked with the price.

I got a pair of shorts for $12.50, and they are good for just hanging out around the house or pairing with a t-shirt.

Steve Madden

I bought two pairs of boots from Steve Madden because they were having a buy one get one half off sale (which is my weakness when it comes to shopping).

These rose-velvet boots are definitely the cutest shoes I own at the moment. They are so easy to get on because instead of lacing them up, you just zip them up on the side. I believe these shoes were around $70.

Yes, I already own about three pairs of black boots with heels. The difference between those and these are that these boots zipper on the side and is about 5x more comfortable. I can't wait to pair these boots up with dresses and jeans. These shoes were about $90 before the discounts.

Eddie Bauer

Northeast winters are freezing, and I needed a coat that would last me for years and keep me warm. This coat is from Eddie Bauer and was originally $275, but it was on sale and I bought it for around $130. I really like this coat because it's the perfect length and I can wear it over my uniform on the train. Also, there's fake fur on it which is good because I wouldn't have bought it if it had real fur.

Victoria's Secret

At Tanger, the VS outlet was one of my best buys. I bought these two sports bras for $10 each, and a regular bra for $19. Usually these sports bras at least $25, and I wasn't willing to pay that much. I was in desperate need of sports bras for my field hockey season, and VS did not disappoint.


 I'm going to a christening for my new baby cousin in the end of September, and I needed a dress to wear. I've never been to LOFT before, but my mother is a big fan of the store. I automatically fell in love with this dress. It was originally $82, but I got 10% because I asked for a student discount. I can't wait to show you all my OOTD.
