Diamonds in the Snow

February 1st, 2011

I am now back to school full time after a two-year hiatus! I’m excited about my film and philosophy classes more than anything. I might not be able to write as much with every post because of that, but I will at least take photos of my outfits whenever I get a chance! I am wearing costume diamond jewelry from when I was a bridesmaid at my friend Imon’s wedding last December. I admit that I thought it was tacky at first, but it makes for a good photo shoot session! I should just remember not to put it on when I walk around the bad parts of the city to avoid looking too flamboyant with big, fake diamonds around my neck. I shan’t risk it.

Also, I am very excited to let you know that I was chosen to be featured in Print VA magazine this year. I will post the fashion editorial soon!

What I Wore: Knit dress and leggings from Burlington Coat Factory – Necklace from being Imon’s bridesmaid (thank you!) – Cardigan from Accents

Because I have a regular point-and-shoot camera and can’t afford an SLR right now, it’s hard for me to focus on my face when taking pictures. Here are a few webcam photos if you’re interested to see a closeup of my typical makeup:

    Thank you! I would like to know why it is—is it because it’s something you see yourself wearing or because it’s the least bizarre? :)

    I Love the necklace, not tacky AT ALL. I prefer costume jewellry to the real thing. To me big diamonds that are real are more tacky, I’m not sure why I feel that way. I think I like the democracy of costume: anyone can afford it. Swarovski jewellry is my favourite and it is surprisingly affordable depending where you get it.

    Adore this outfit! You look cozy and chic! Love the makeup, it is nice and fresh. :)

    Congrats on your feature, that is awesome! And my philosophy class was my all time favorite so enjoy that for me :)

    Rach, I want to copy your cateyes. The problem is I always end up with raccoon eyes. lol!

  13. Rachel @ à la Modest

    I used to too! Just make sure you use the right eyeliner. The pencils and retractable eyeliners don’t work for me because they tend to smudge—thus, the “raccoon” look. I use the liquid kind.

  14. Rachel @ à la Modest

    Haha, algebra was my favorite math!

  15. Rachel @ à la Modest

    I do agree with you on costume jewelry. Almost all of my jewelry are costume, but it was just this particular necklace that didn’t look quite attractive to me the first time I saw it. I like it now, though.

    The necklace might be artificial but it is gorgeous. And I really love your coat….it seems to be shimmering in the bright light reflected from the snow.

    Look forward to hearing from you
