Look Familiar?

So I've spent some time trying to find the best photo location. At the moment I've enjoyed taking pics on my back porch, but my old faithful has been my brothers room where I can prop my camera on the desk and then pose in front of the horrid blue wallpaper. Last week my mom spent hours stripping the wallpaper off of the walls in an attempt to make the house more "buyer friendly." Sadly the desk has always been moved so i was having some trouble trying to figure out where to place my camera to take pictures, but these were the final results.

vest: j crew; tank: j crew (i didn't mean to be so branded - i borrowed the tank from my mom) jeans: gap; shoes: the same ones i've been wearing, you know; necklace: mom; bracelet: gucci (gift from my grammi)

Today was First Friday in Philadelphia. All of  the local galleries open their doors to show of their latest shows. Next week my friend is beginning an internship at Fuel Gallery (home of Real World Philadelphia) so we stopped by there to check out the place. Then we headed up to the Pennsylvannia Academy of the Fine Arts to check out their student show and it was amazing! If you're in the greater Philadelphia area go check this show out. Their students are so talented. We ended the night buy having dinner at Continental which is one of my favorite Philly restaurants. The Lobster Mac& Cheese is my favorite!

Ahhhh, the infamous plight of the independent fashion blogger. . .the photos. I have simply resigned myself to the fact that my friends and my little point & shoot digital will just have to do :) You look fantastic by the way. Looking forward to seeing more from you! xoxo, Nicole

I love that bracelet of yours!
And I know how difficult it is trying to take pictures of yourself. I think next time I'm just gonna beg my little brother to become my photographer, haha!

Mm, mac and cheese.

The last time I was in Philly was for the King Tut exhibit. I loved the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I was surprised to find on the top floor in the back the collection of Knight's armor and beautiful medieval tapestries.

Love the colored vest and your accessories. They bring your outfit to life :)
