Wearing this particular outfit made me feel very art dealer chic/standard model off-duty. Although I'm neither of those things, I am a student meaning that I have to forfeit some of my hearts desires in order to focus on school. I have one year left and though it is not a long time it is hard constantly admiring things I cannot obtain. I know, I know...there are people far worse off and I should be grateful for what I have. Believe me I am! But I am also constantly searching for beautiful pieces of clothing, accessories and decor in hopes that they will magically appear or that if I look at them long enough in their glossy pixel form I will somehow be satisfied. But it is the Holiday season so maybe if I make a wish list consisting solely of luxury goods some will MAGICALLY APPEAR under the tree. DEAR SANTA, ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS A PAIR OF YELLOW MANOLO PUMPS (oh wait that's another post ;).) In the mean time I will have to continue putting affordable outfits together - luckily there are plenty of great options listed below.
