What's Hot & What's Not!

Well in my previous post I talked about what outfit I could team up with my new black booties without looking outrageous. I surfed through some fashion websites to check out the structured dresses I had in mind and Lady Gaga made my day. Here she is flaunting the jacket I want and a black smokey leotard. Though I hope leotards don't become an in-thing someday, nevertheless, I'd love to own one. Risky and Dangerous fashion!This pretty glitzy black dress is just what I need but sporting bare shoulders would be over-rated. Plus, its all black and I wouldn't want my outfit to scream DISCO in broad daylight. While I had more subtle colours in mind like beige, light pink, nude, I'm not so sure if just-wishing-I-had-that is going to work out. I have like six days to decide, search, buy and be happy! But it'd be quite a thing to actually find floral skirts here and quite another to get the kind I want. The ones illustrated below are exactly the ones I want. Aren't they fabulous? These skirts look so awesome with loafers too. While I may be drifting away from the topic I have to pick out these pretty white and brown loafers that can look both casual and stylish at the same time. And of course if you can get lucky enough to find a bowler hat, you're chic! While these loafers are hot, these Christian Louboutin studded loafers are to die for.. I'd love to own one.

College had been over even before it had started so I went window-shopping with friends to Metro Plaza. Since Freshers' Day is just around the corner, I went with the sole intention of buying a nice dress for myself. But like always, I ended up buying shoes and not just any shoe. These chic glossy black lace-up booties are awe.. wait for it!.. some!!! And grabbed them for a handsome bargain. As I am unable to put up a pic of my latest purchase, the shoes illustrated below are quite similar to the one I have. Now since my budget is tight at the moment - I'm an almost broke first year college student - I have to make up my mind and fast, as to what I can wear with the shoes. While there may be ample choices, I have to do with what I can get here. Here's Taylor Momsen doing it the right way. Her jacket is so adorable, plus the leather studded bag. But since I have to stay on the more formal and sophisticated side, I might as well go with 80s-shoulder dress or high- waist skirt and black stockings. Floral prints, perhaps, as they are so in! And of course not to mention my mom's GUESS leather purse which I will be teaming up with my outfit. Sweet!
PS: I might have also dyed my hair red by then. Awesome-ness!!!
