I've been trying my best not to shop at the moment. I haven't bought anything since spring break, and I even passed on Modcloth's stylish surprises, which I never do. In an effort to actually have some self control this time, I've been digging into my closet, pulling out items I haven't worn in a while, and trying to put things together in new ways. I actually wear this dress much more than it appears on the blog (I actually think I've only taken pictures in it once), yet somehow this is the first time I've worn it as a skirt. It has such an interesting pattern though, so I think it really livens up an outfit. To be honest, the only reason why I haven't worn this button down in forever is because it's been wrinkled, and I've been too lazy to iron it. I'd like to not admit how often that happens with clothes I own. And to top off an outfit full of rarely seen items, I decided it was time to bring this Hello Cheeseburger necklace out again. It's gorgeous, but it's sometimes a little too much for class. I decided to hell with it yesterday and figured that even days filled with nothing but class and work are deserving statement necklaces.
I'm really excited about today's non-outfit news, but I don't think I can go into too much detail yet. I've been lamenting about my struggles with the job market, but remember how I said that hopefully one week I would just hear back from a ton of places? Somehow that joke turned into a reality, and as of Monday, I lined up four interviews. They're all with unpaid internships, which isn't exactly ideal, but I do need to get internship credit for college. Plus, with the job market so terrible, I don't think it's a bad idea to start off with an internship (or two) and hope that I prove to be so much of an asset that I get hired on at the end of summer. I had one interview that went extremely well yesterday, and I'm particularly excited about at least one more of them. They're all fashion/media related, so I can't wait to share whichever one I end up with. Look, Ma. I'm finally maybe going places.
But let's focus on what's really important: who watched Sunday's episode of "Game of Thrones?" We need to talk. Never has an ending been so satisfying.
