Wednesdays are always a bit frustrating for me. Forget the fact that we are two days closer to the weekend. I have a four hour gap in between classes, and that usually means venturing a few short miles down the freeway to my local shopping mecca. I hesitate, because do I really need to be spending money when I could be studying, writing papers, reading? Yes, yes I do. Despite the wet wintery-like weather yesterday, I hobbled on over to Nordstrom. Frizzy hair, zip up hoodie, and all. I tried on a few things, including an adorable silk top with little gold buttons and lace cascading around the neck. I knew it was a no-go as soon as I put it over my head, so I preceded to take it off. Or I tried. I tried a few times, but I couldn't get the darn thing off! I squirmed, wiggled, and shimmied, desperately contorting my body every which way to no avail. OH CRAP. What the hell Noelle, I thought you were more flexible than this?! All those hours spent at the gym and you would think I'd be able to get a sleeveless top off of MY top. I started to panic. I thought, maybe i'll just have to buy this! Then I heard a voice: "How's it going in there?" My reply: "Ah, um...I can't seem to get this top off!" So, the sweet salesgirl walked into the room and helped bring the top up and off my body. "Don't worry," she smiled. "This happens all the time." Um, really? Cuz that was super humiliating for me! God I hope that never happens again. I felt like a complete moron.
On a better note, I did manage to buy some cute things for Spring and Summer, one of which happens to be this romper:


I never in a million gazillion years thought that I could pull off a romper. I already look like a teenager because of my height so I just dismiss the trend when it comes around every so often. Except this one fits my body really well. Not too short, not too loose. I really like the little pockets on the sides, as well as the big ruffle around the neckline. I figure I can dress it up for nighttime with some low pumps, a belt, and fun accessories, maybe a jacket or cardigan. Then for day I can wear some flat sandals and keep it beach or pool appropriate, bathing suit underneath and all.


I also FINALLY found a big tan belt:

I had been searching everywhere for one of these!

And just for the hell of it, and because shoes are a girls best friend:

I remember around Christmas time that I saw a pair of Steve Maddens that looked somewhat similar to these, but I couldn't afford them at the time. Well, a few months later and Voila. These little knockoffs are mine and for a fraction of that price. I don't own any shoes that resemble these, so that's a great justification in my book. I can't wait to wear them with a little dress. Speaking of shoes, anyone who has managed to get a hold of the Cynthia Vincent for Target wedges is blessed! I doubt I'll score a pair, but they are mighty pretty.


Thanks for reading girls. It's almost Friday!

  4. Ohhh I love the romper! makes me want to wear mine. I bet you look great in it. And girl, lemme tell you-- it wasn't any easy feat getting those wedges! You have to plan it a week in advance. haha... (I call a million stores several days ahead of time, then keep calling each day until I think they'll get 'em. I get annoying and obsessive but I always end up scoring what I'm looking for!)

  5. Such a cute romper! I love how easy they are to throw on - though being a very petite 5ft tall I totally understand feeling like a teen sometimes! Probably why I always rock my rompers with heels :)

  8. Elle: Being short can be a disadvantage, but we just have to work with it ;)

    Andi: Ohh, I know! It was really mortifying! At least the salesgirl was nice though.

  10. Jodi: You are so sweet, I'm happy you enjoy reading my blog :) My advice is to just have fun with clothes! Try a bunch of things on when you shop, even if you are unsure of the fit. Just play around and see what works for you, and more importantly, what you like!
