decisions, decisions... i need help!

i need help! graduation just weeks away i'm torn between two dresses. please let me know what you think!

all saints, mohini dress

cushine et ochs, jersey drape

love both these dresses. unfortunately the cushine et ochs is a small fortune i don't think i can afford. i already bought it, but it is eligible for a full return. help!!!

also, with graduation comes moving... and i am dreading packing. any thoughts of me starting a "shop haute like wasabi"?

bag tag

so terribly sorry for the lack of updates, this must be the tenth time i apologize. i have two weeks of classes left in my undergraduate career! i was "bag tagged" about 2 weeks ago, so here it is!

clockwise, starting with my bag:
- bag, speedy 30, LV: totally my go-to bag. it goes with everything.
- umbrella, longchamp: for those unexpected florida afternoon showers
- 5-hr energy: i need this to function properly
- wallet, chanel: love the lining, it's bright pink!
- beer, mich ultra: yes, i am known to carry beer in my purse at bars. i am living on a college-student budget so i try to find ways to save money.
- pen, bic: you never know when you need to jot something down
- lipgloss, benetint: it smells like roses and gives the perfect red stain
- antibacterial gel: scent is fresh linen
- wallet #2: to carry my ID and cash
- aquaphor: my lips get awfully chapped, this is a miracle worker
- planner, LV: keeps my life together

what's in your bag?

edgy americana

being in business school has resulted to so many real-world case studies. this week, my management class analyzed the private equity firm, TPG, that controlled j.crew in the late 1990s when the brand was in trouble.... the case was boring and full of financial data. but inspired me to see the direction j.crew is currently heading towards.

the analysis: i love the fall 2010 lookbook. pretty much obsessed and cannot wait for it to hit stores! lots of slouchy layers and neutrals topped with the perfectly disheveled hair that screams: i just threw this on, but i know i look fabulous.
