If you give up New York, I'll give you Tennessee.

Forgive me for my lack of updates. The past week has just been a huge mess with a great deal of highs and lows. I'm at this stage in my life where nothing makes sense and the whole world is coming to an end. Over-dramatic I know. I have learned new things about myself that I'm not completely proud of:

  • I have very low confidence and put the guys I like above me.
  • I allow others to walk over me.
  • I have a hard time saying no.
  • I run back to the people who hurt me.
  • &I feel like I can't do any better than what I have now.

    I think I need to stop myself and reevaluate everything going on in my life. I need to focus on something or else everything else will literally fall apart. School work and getting my grades back up are all that I should be concerned and focused on. Until then I can't be on the computer constantly and updating my blog. I know I just started this blog but I'm in a desperate need of a hiatus. Nothing to do with the blog, just personal things going on in my life.

    Spiral Staircase.

    - Fall. Fall. Fall! Yet it feels like a cold Spring. Curse you Vegas. I'm ready to be cold and shiver, I want to wear thick jackets and coats, not sweaters. I'm hoping that within the next week or so the weather changes drastically or else I'll be a very sad girl. Along with the cold weather I want clothing to match the weather. I told my mom the other day that I wanted new clothes but I didn't want to spend any money so she suggested I make my own clothes. Now I've been thinking about this for a while but I've never really taken the initiative. I mean I have a sewing machine, I have a dress form, I have everything I need, you know, except the skills and motivation. So I've decided that I am going to take up lessons at Cynthia's Sewing Center. The only place in Vegas that I found that actually offers sewing classes. Las Vegas apparently isn't too big on sewing. So hopefully within the next couple of weeks I shall begin my sewing classes. I'm excited!
    On me:
    black leather jacket - rhapsodielle
    white/cream top with pearl beading - rhapsodielle
    navy blue ruffled skirt - F21
    black madden girl booties - burlington coat factory

    Revenge is sweet not fattening.

    I recently decided to change my way of eating, well at least breakfast. Baby steps. I planned out 6 different meals for my mornings in any order I desire (Saturdays are my cheat days). My options are plain Ouaker Oatmeal that are 100 calories a packet, I figured if I got plain I could just add fruits and whatever I wanted, another option is Fruit Salad with orange juice, or a bowl of plain Cheerios, another one is mini cinnamon raisin bagel, or eggs, and lastly, toast with jelly. This way I have variety and I don't have to eat cereal every morning. I thought to myself, if I can give up meat (4 months going strong!) I can give up junk food. It's not that I have to lose weight, I just want to eat healthier and if the weight falls off, well hey!

    I didn't have much time to post what I wore the other day. I had so much school work to do and just not enough time. Not to mention I took a very unwelcome nap that kept me asleep for a good 2 hours. Anyways I have a particular style, I enjoy skirts, leather jackets, and boots. Those are my main three essentials in life. Spring, Summer. Fall. Winter. Thats what I wear. I'm more interested in a sense of style rather than fashion and trends. So I'm not really one to wear the large belts with the zebra print and moccasin shoes. I'm not saying they're ugly, just that in 2 years will I still be wearing it? if not then why waste my money? I stay clear of that and go with classic pieces and neutrals. I'm a boring gal I know I can't help it.

     On me:
    -a top I bought from Marshalls
    -skirt from F21
    -Knee high socks from Walmart
    -Boots from Rack Room Shoes
    -Pendant Necklace from Luann
    -Pearl-like necklace from Luann, Reconstructed by me.
    -Bag from Savers

    Then today I just put something together this morning before school. 
    On me: 
    -Shirt from Marshalls
    -Skirt & shoes from Burlington Coat Factory
    -Necklace from Luann
    -Ring on right index finger from Vanessa
    -Ring on left index finger from my dad at the Rio.

    Happy Alone

    Today is just one of those days where I did not feel like doing anything! My hair is greasy, my make-up is a mess, just everything is gross. So I basically re-wore last nights outfit with a twist. Last night I went to my schools playoff football game and decided to get dressed up. I already knew that girls from my school would be wearing the typical Hollister/A&F sweatshirt/hoodie with ripped/True jeans paired with Ugg boots. Blegh. How boring. Anyways I decided to play with my outfit so I wore a white, layered, flowy shirt that I think I got from Ross. I also wore this really thick and warm tights that my mother bought me from T.J.MAX (note: I'm 5'1" so the shirt can pass off for a really small dress haha!) I paired that with the new booties I bought in the blog below. To top things off I wore my leather jacket I bought about 2 years ago from Rhapsodielle. (You'll soon come to see that I wear this jacket with everythingg.) 
    So today, being the lazy person that I am, I decided to wear the same thing minus the tights and booties but switched it up with a black ruffled skirt underneath my shirt and the flats I bought the other day. For accessories I wore my class ring, a flower ring I bought for a dollar at the swap meet, a purple band I got for 50cents at First Friday and a bracelet or two. My favorite piece of jewelry though is the long feather necklace I bought at the Gypsy Den for $14. I have been wearing it to death lately. haha 
    Excuse my messy room, It's a work in progess (:

    For the mean while..

    Currently I'm unemployed. BUT my dad was so gracious enough to buy me 3 pairs of shoes today from Burlington Coat Factory. He spoils me from time to time, he's a good man. I told you I was in the mood for Shoes! They're all black because I sort of am afraid of color. I never know what colors go with what and it just overwhelms me. I stick to the black, grays and white. I know it's sad, it's a problem. Anyways, I bought black flats with these like crystal jewel things on the tip and a bow for $7.99.

    So you know how in my last post I posted the most beautiful booties known to man? Well at this moment I cannot afford them... sooo in the mean while I bought these ones for $29.99 [madden girl] . They may not be as fierce but I still think they're cute and totally affordable. But I still plan on buying those other ones ;)

    My next pair of shoes are suede heels with these awesome studs on the heel.
    They had them in red...but like I said...I'm afraid of color haha. My dad bought them for only $19.99!

    Overall a good day. I'm pretty sure I won't be buying anything for a while but I'm totally okay with that.

    Love Rosy

    No Money.

    I have this recent need for combat boots and wedges. It's like the Lord is calling me to them. OH and booties. Actually I think I'm just in the mood for clothing but cheap clothing, I hate using money haha. I'm usually a real penny pincher but when it comes to shoes, for some reason everything my parents have taught me about bargains and clearance sales finds its way out the door. I feel like shoes are the real investment in an outfit, everything else you can get thrifted or somewhere cheap. But anyways I wanted new clothes but didn't want to pay a dime so I went to the only store I know thats free, my mothers closet. I recently dug up some clothes that she doesn't wear anymore and I took the padding off of some and they make great layering pieces. Vintage from your mothers closet is the way to go. Recently I've been spending a LOT of money -_- I spent $14 for a necklace from the Gypsy Den and $5 for another necklace and then I bought two 50cent rings. I also bought a shirt from threadless Its a guys shirt but I never follow those rules anyways,
    Anyways so back to shoes, I have been looking around and I found some shoes that I know I cannot live without and need to buy ASAP!
    1) Senso from Solestruck - $189.95

    You can seriously dress these up or down or left or right. They're a dream come true!
    2) I want combat boots. Not these exactly but you get the point.

    3)Lastly I want some shoes I thought I would never want in a million years.
    Jeffrey Cambell - Lita from Solestruck - $159.95

    Getting a job VERY soon. Mama Rosy needs new shoes <3

    Here and there. My thoughts are everywhere.

    I've never been much of an avid blogger. I have blogged here and there but never have I really had the patience to actually stick with it. So here I am, trying to actually commit.
    Well, with that out of the way, lets meet shall we?

    My name is Rosy.
    My choice of life is designing clothes.
    As you will get to know me you will begin to see that clothing
    isn't my only love. I adore animals, art, and generosity.

    I live in Las Vegas. Despite what everyone hears, it's quite boring and unoriginal here but I can't help to call it home. I was born and raised here and am a pretty cool cat if I do say so myself. I love clothing and being able to play with what you wear. Fashion, to me, isn't about being ahead of the curve and so serious. It's about loving what you wear and wearing what you love. 
    So as I blog more, the more you'll get to know me and vice versa.

    This is what I'm about in a nutshell:

    The love of my life, without her I'm nothing.

    Helping others is what I do. I volunteer for charities
    and go to a program for children with disabilities.
    Good deeds make you feel good.

    I could not imagine life without listening to these guys!

    &Last but not least. I'm an adventurer. My life is measured by all of my explorations.
    I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate.

    Love, Rosy.
