Power Animal

When: March 1, 2011

Blazer: Mossimo Target via Goodwill
Top: Nordstrom B.P. 
Skirt: H&M
Heels: madden girl via TJ Maxx

Where: To an interview for OSU Office of Admissions TOUR Ambassadors 

Why: Readers, I'd like to introduce you to my new nude pumps. They are my new crush (sorry, Paul). I threw this outfit together before my interview. According to the weather, I should totally be wearing tights, but I feel like it's wrong to wear tights with nude pumps. They are nude. They should match my skin, which looks pink, but that's beside the point. Because I am lacking in the "business casual" department, I paired a flowy summer top and covered with a blazer. 

The interview went well! I have no idea where I stand, because there were so many qualified and well spoken candidates. Worst case scenario, I met some really cool adults that run campus recruitment. They all had senses of humor, which I totally dug. 

I got a laugh from one of the interviewers when I switched from my heels to topsiders after the interview. I was working business up top, party on the bottom. That's how I do. 

Recycled Fashion Show 2011
Thursday, March 3rd, 7pm
MU Ballroom

I saw this poster today in the library for the Dumpsters to Diamonds: Recycled Fashion show 2011. Are you excited?! I am.  


  1. Lakin, your style is AMAZING!

  2. Hi, I got to know aout your blog through a group on IFB. I'm totally glad I checked it out because your style is awesome! I am definately following.
    About your comment on the nude pumps, I agree. Going monochromatic on the bottom half goes a long way in elongating your legs.
    I hope you'll like my blog as much as I liked yours! You'll find it at http://throughtintedglass.wordpress.com

  3. I love that blazer!!
    Glad to hear your interview went well! You look very professional in this outfit :D
    M xo

  4. love love these shoes. and your hair is too cute.
    now following! i'd love if you did the same :)

  5. love your blog! just found it via IFB. You have such a classic Hollywood beauty, so rare! I'm sure people tell you that : )

    keep in touch! xo ann

    Holier than Now

  6. Thank you, very much! I idolize Marilyn Monroe and Ingrid Bergman. The funny thing is, I don't try to emanate them, I just do.

    That's the best compliment I've gotten all day. :D

  7. I think I would've liked if I had a higher waisted skirt. Any thoughts?

  8. I agree on the higher waisted skirt, but I'm gonna have to disagree with the no tights thing. I think that black sheer tights would look fab with this outfit, they'd make your heels really pop. But I understand what you meant about the nudeness (lol). I hope you get the job! They'd be stupid not to choose you. :P

  9. Wow!

    I read a lot of blogs, but when I saw your photo pop up I stopped and said "Oh wow" out loud. You are really, really gorgeous. Well-dress, of course. But there is something about your face that is really unique and captivating. You look like a vintage femme fatale, my dear.


    P.S. Thanks for being a part of the CleartheWay community at IFB. Contribute often, it is greatly appreciated.

  14. You look great. I hope your interview went well!! I must agree with you. Nude pumps are AMAZING. They make your legs go on forever, and go with everything.


  15. Thank you, all! I have an individual follow up interview on Thursday. Get ready for more business casual.


I love hearing what you have to say!
Questions, comments, and feedback are all appreciated.

Always, Lakin
