Hola everyone!

Today was the first day of school for the fall quarter!!! We're starting with embryology, and I'm pretty excited because I touched base on this topic in undergrad (during two of my favourite science courses). Babies, sperm and eggs, oh my!

   Anyway, here are a few photos of a dress that was sent to me from Sheinside back in May. I know, I know... I'm that behind. It's another garment that was subject to tailoring before I got to wear it, so props again to Montgomery Alterations. The dress itself is spot on with the high-low skirt trend of the season, and the color is a classy neutral. I paired it with a thick belt I found in my mom's closet in order to give me a bit of shape, and a funky pair of cage pumps. You have no idea how much fun I have prancing around in dresses that make me feel like a fairy. I just die with glee. If I were reincarnated into a fictional creature, I'd definitely be Tinkerbell or one of her minions.



And a quick update: I made an August resolution that I would not buy any fashion-related purchases until December. There's a new purse in my collection that I will blog about soon, and it was the last purchase before I began my lockdown. I totally went out with a BANG. You'll love it!

Cheers,
CC
