Easily the best purchases I’ve made all summer are my collection of maxi dresses. I get complements every time I wear them, but in reality they’re so easy to throw on and head out the door without a second thought. The safest bet is sticking to empire silhouettes, I find the straight up and down tank versions unflattering.
I’m going to have to update my collection for fall, replacing light cardigans and wraps with blazers and jackets, and espadrilles for wedge booties with tights. I’ll be keeping the statement necklaces and belts though…
Modcloth - Demeter
Jully Kang Strapless Jersey Maxi
Ravon Navy Jersey Convertible Maxi Dress
Ella Moss - Daphne
Dorothy Perkins Burgundy Bandeau Maxi Dress
Juicy Couture Jersey Maxi Dress
As my distinct lack of blogging has probably made obvious, it’s been a wild summer. Sadly, September is now here and the dust is settling. My Bachelor of Commerce degree is in the bag as is my other major project of the summer: Grad Gala.
This was not my first rodeo in terms of project management within the Commerce Students Society at Gustavson. My previous project however was a world of differences away, primarily because it wasn’t an event that all your friends were looking forward to as one of the last parties of the summer.
I’m happy to report that the actual event went off without a hitch! That doesn’t mean that there weren’t some serious lessons to be learned from the whole experience…
In the end everyone had a great time, which was ultimately all we could have hoped for. Congratulations to my fellow Grad of 2011!
Holy Mother of Hiatuses, Batman!
As per usual, the UsedBlog has been keeping me busy; most recently, I relived the realization of one of my very worst fears (aptly titled The Worst).
The Sasquatch Festival also had me out of commission for several days, but fear not I’m back on my A-game now. Just to relive the memories…
