The Holiday Season

Happy Holidays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I haven't posted in over a month, so I guess one of my new years resolutions is to post more.
Urban Outfitters is having a sale!!!!
One thing I love the most about the holiday season are cute mini dresses that just screams "wear me to a Christmas or New Years Eve Party NOW". I rarely ever see these kind of dresses in black, but today on the Urban Outfitters website, I saw one!, and it's on sale. If only it wasn't so expensive. In case the link doesn't work;jsessionid=E68DEEB4B7B1D845D1BDC5A863936F8E.app12-node7?itemdescription=true&itemCount=60&id=13858097&parentid=W_APP_DRESSES&sortProperties=price&navCount=7&navAction=poppush&color=

I think I would probably wear it with red shoes, or with colored tights (red maybe) and black mary janes.

...I am currently loving Rachel Bilson's style, and I found out that there is even a website on her style called so yea.

it's been so long-pic overload!!!!!!

I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving.
Today is Black Friday!! I didn't go shopping, did you?
I've been so busy with college apps, school work, ... that I really haven't had time to sit down and post a blog.
...Teen Vogue's Fashion U was amazing. I met so many girls from all over the United States, and one girl from Europe. I met people form different part of the fashion industry: editors, designers, and people who in advertising and Marketing.
My favorite seminar was X-fit Lycra, we were divided into groups and had to come up with ideas for an ad for them. My ad wasn't the winning ad, but the winning ad was beautiful-you'll see it in an upcoming issue of Teen Vogue.
It's amazing how they turned our ideas into an !!!
I got so much from that weekend beside all the goodies. I learned so much about the fashion business from people who are in it. How cool is that! I found out that I'm interested in advertising/merchandising-so I might major in that in college.

It's been a whole month and a day since I last posted. Let me just say, I took the SAT and I'm getting my result tomorrow-maybe. I don't think I used contractions, practicing on this blog did pay off.
So I went on this college trip, and let me tell you I am excited about college, and I realized that I want to go away to college, but not that far. I kept comparing everywhere to NYC.!!!
Fashion U!! I am excited !!!!
I really wanted to wear this Alice Temperley dress with ruffles from target, but I couldn't find it, and I tried to get the store to reserve it for me, but of course that was not going to happen.
SO I went to Macy's one day sale on Saturday, and I bought for less than $60, 3 dresses, a cute bubble skirt, and a nice shirt. Except for the dress which was red by Marc Ecko, everything was American Rag!!
I'm thinking the skirt should be for Fashion U graduation.
And I was also accepted to attend an event, CosmoGirl! , Girls' night in tomorrow. I'll tell you how it went. so yea.

I have not written in so long.
Update: I was able to get into the Levis after party and X-fit Lycra class for fashion U-I'm excited about that.
Gossip Girl premiered on Wednesday-and it was awesome. The fashion is amazing.
I hate sparkles or sequins but this is beautiful, and I would so wear it, and buy it if it was not $450.00.

So before I Gossip Girls premiered, I was actually at Teen Vogue offices for a focus group. They bought us to element, Roxy, Billabong, and quicksilver, and we had to basically give our opinions on stuff. I got a cute Billabong bag, a pencil case kind of bag, hat, and planner. I met some of the coolest girls ever, and I got to see a bunch of cool Billabong ads that I guess I should not talk about, but all I can say is they're different. I learned about Design for Humanity, which you should check out. so yea.

fashion U

I got accepted to teen vogue's fashion U!!!! I found out yesterday, I am excited, what to wear, what to wear.
I really wishes I could have post about fashion week, but I have been super busy with school and college essays and stuff.
I must say that I am extremely proud of Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. I really did not think it was going to be that nice. The dresses are not so bad.They can make nice prom dresses, especially This black one (I hope the link works-if it does not go check out
so yea-what do you think? Prom is coming up soon-well in June.

Fashion Week-day2

I get out of school at 12 and I start at 7:45, which is still fabulous although I really wanted a 7AM-11:10.
So any ways, I'm in my last class-government and I can not help but daydream about fashion week. I seriously would skip school to go to a fashion week show, it is only an hour away or about 10 stops on the train.
BUT of course I'm not invited, so yeah. I will just have to read the many fashion blogs, fashion websites, and newspapers to know what is going on.

1st day of school!!!

I wore these really cute pair of black skinny jeans that I bought at Dr. Jays. (only $20!!!)The name is No Label, which I thought was kind of cute. I wore my 2 inch flip flops. I believe that skinny jeans should always be worn with heels, although they look nice with flats.
Speaking of flats-I do not like them much. They do look cute, and they are comfortable, BUT they are flat!! I like height, I was so much better and so much more "lady like" in shoes that are 2 inches high or more.
I wore this shirt-jersey inspired, that was really pretty. I bought it at Kohl's- first time shopping there, and I found some great stuff. I love that store, but I still wished I found that jumper Fergie wore in Big Girls Don't Cry. I was so mad. So yeah.
Let's not forget the simple accessory- a gold AK watch.
No HW, but I really should review some stuff, and get started on my millionth draft of my college essay.

Great Minds Think Alike

On Tuesday, I bought these cute pair of Mary Jane heels at target $19.99-they remind me of these Christian Louboutin shoes(625.00 at SAKS) which I cannot afford. I was joking around with my sister about how I should use red nail polish to make the sole of the shoes red so they could actually look Christian Louboutin. Well, on Fashion Fanatics with Stacey London on TLC, i learned that Mr. CL got inspiration for the red soles from red nail polish. (great minds think alike)

On Thursday, I went to the Whitney with some friends. The Summer of Love Exhibit was awesome. Then I went shopping. I went to Steve and Barry's to check out Amanda Bynes' line, Dear. It is a very cute line. Too colorful. I bought the black skinny jeans, a black jumper, a vertical stripped and a button down shirt. I bought this cute jacket from Bitten SJP. Then I went in search of the perfect flats-did not find them.So yea.

Booties everywhere

I can't help but notice that booties are everywhere. I went to pay less yesterday-and that was the first thing I noticed. I later went to target-and that was the first thing I noticed in the shoe department. I am not personally a fan of them, but I saw some at the Urban outfitters website that were not so bad.

back to school shopping

If you watched the Fashionista Diaries, then you know Nicole resigned from her job. Does she not know how many girls would have loved to be at her place. BUT she did follow her heart, and I admire her for that.
I saw it coming though,because I noticed that on the website, there was a cast picture minus her. so yea.
While I was walking to toys R' us, I saw a Roxy/billabong/quicksilver store.
very exciting
I cannot wait for back to school shopping.
I don't(do not) know what I want exactly, but I know where I want them from.
2. Steve and Barry's
3.Wet Seal
4.Charlotte Russe
7.Victoria's secret
and many more.

Dear by Amanda Bynes

I was so excited about by Amanda Bynes coming out tomorrow. AS much as I want to meet her, I really do not want to go., but the lines for the dressing room will probably be too long. So, I will probably go next week. I will be in Manhattan though, for I want to go to toys r' us with my little brother. (He is now eight years old!!)
I went to the Dear website, and I could not help myself. I made up some outfits.
check out the website at
random: the time of my first post is totally wrong-I posted it around 4PM.
and this one-10:39
so yea.

my first

My name is Daphney. I am a high school student. Seniors '08!!!!!!
I am preparing to take the SATs in October and I have to practice my writing and not using contractions and all that good stuff. So bear with me as I write: I am instead of I'm, I will instead of I'll. so yea.

After reading so many fashion blogs-I thought I should have my own, BUT it will focus on much more than fashion.
so I will probably be writing about my life: fashion, High school, clubs, lacrosse, boys, fashion, and the SATs.
