So we are coming up on day 7 without power; I have decided to just use my phone and take the best pictures possible with the limited resources I have. Once I regain electricity, which I think I will appreciate much more after this, I will start to use a camera that will hopefully produce higher quality photos than the ones you see here-fingers crossed!
Anyway this is the outfit I have decided to wear to school tomorrow for my first day back post-hurricaine. I thought an homage to America would be a nice way to get back in the swing of things. People have been wearing a lot of sad colors lately and I decided a bright red would make those people smile. I think at this time, with so many organizations like the Red Cross, etc. helping those affected by this disaster, it is appropriate to show some American pride because it is, after all, a fantastic place to live dontcha think?
And Patriotism is nothing new in fashion either. Designers like Catherine Malandrino, Dannijo, and the designer of this Katy Perry dress have been part of the action for years. The t-shirt that I'm wearing is super soft, probably because it came from the men's section of Urban Outfitters. I find men's clothing is so much softer and cheaper than women's, and it provides an all around better fit...Seriously! Go try out this hypothesis for yourself and report back.
These jeans are again from LF. I really hope they start selling online soon but if you happen to find one of their stores (Florida, Ny, Boston, etc.) make sure you find out when their annual sale is because everything is 60% off; It's the best! The combat boots are from Steve Madden. I used to think they were really cool but I estimate about 70% of the girls in my school own them so I don't wear them too much anymore, but they do go well with the whole patriotic theme.
Here you will see my arms are clearly having a party (love that phrase by The Man Repeller) with this stack of bracelets. From top: vintage necklace that I wrapped around my arm four times, Madewell bracelet, Marc by Marc Jacobs watch, and double skull bracelet from Urban Outfitters. The ring is Forever 21.
A couple more detail shots in case you thought my accessories we so amazing you just had to see more. The bag on your left is Marc by Marc Jacobs and all other jewelry I haven't mentioned is either fine or vintage.
So, everyone cross your fingers I regain power soon, and if anyone wants to donate to victims of the hurricane, click here. I will be returning to school tomorrow-a depressing thought-so I will likely see you all here again in a few days after I get used to the 10 hours of homework I will be back to forcing myself to stop napping to finish. Well wishes to all those affected by Sandy and Happy Monday!

I didn't even realize this because I am not old enough to vote (sigh), but this outfit is perfect to show your election day spirit! Happy Voting!!
