AHHHH so this weekend is a huge weekend. It is my boyfriend's birthday, his mother's birthday, and his brother's girlfriend's birthday. haha I know confusing! We are renting a limo and going to a nice restaurant in Raleigh called the Angus Barn. I have been stressing out all weekend because I had NO IDEA what to wear. I mean its hard to find the balance between too casual and too dressy. However, I think I found the perfect dress at Nordstrom today. I had to get it altered because the length was just a little dated before. Here is a couple pics of the dress, give me your honest opinon!! Like I said Nordstrom is hemming it up about 9 inches so it will be about fingertip length. I plan on wearing it with some sheer black tights, Steve Madden heels, and some Betsey Johnson earrings.

Shape Project for APD 242

Well I really LOVE sweets so I decided to use that as my inspiration for the project. I found pictures of my favorite sweets then found some new Spring '10 runway looks from Giles and Alexander McQueen and compared the shapes. As you can see I also incorporated colors, but mainly focused on similar shapes. I thought the comparison in color would help assist in the whole overall aestetic experience.

The shape of the Giles dress really resembles the shape of a Gummy Bear.

This Giles dress resembles the shape of a short piece of Bubble Tape.

This Giles dress really looks like and upside down icecream cone.

This Alexander McQueen looks resemples a lollipop with the models legs resembling a lollipop stick.

The sleeves on this Giles jacket really resemble a twisted wrapper of a candy.

The shape of this Giles skirt is very similar to a Little Debbie cake.

This Alexander McQueen blouse is very unique and resembles the same shape as a marshmallow.

The skirt on this Giles look is very similar to the top shape of a cupcake.

This dress by Giles really has the same shpe as a piece of chocolate from a candy bar.

This Giles suit resembles a long piece of licorice.

Hot New Buys

Here are a few fall favorites I just picked up to add to my wardrobe. I will hopefully be featuring them in some outfit posts if my camera decides to cooperate.

I work at Express and get a pretty good discount so of course I am going look there for some great fall essentials.

(Minus The) Leather Vest from Express
I paired mine with a white ruffle top for a romantic/rocker style!

(Minus The) Leather Jacket from Express
feels very real and is very warm!

Jessica Simpson "Angie" Slouched boot in Dust Suede from Nordstrom. Very comfortable! I'm loving the "worn in" look they have going on.

BCBGeneration "Pony Boot" from Nordstrom. Attention grabber! They go great with both skinny jeans and tights!
