something refreshing for you

its so hot in new orleans during the summer time ... i need something refreshing to cool me off. i am so jealous of the girls in the picture since i have to work in this hot office with no a/c. i think instead of fixing the broken a/c, my office should invest in placing a pool in the backyard, which will be a nice way for us to refresh .. ahhhhh <3

p.s. i'm going tubing today, that should work right?

dress me up

one of my favorite past times in my younger days was playing dress up. me and my little sister would dress up in my mom's clothes and pretend we were famous actresses out to lunch on melrose. of course my mother loved the idea of this and would help us in our wardrobe. she would even layer our faces with blush, eye shadow and lipstick. i remember one time specifically, when we decided to bake with my easy bake oven, and dress up for a tea party. the only problem - i was seven and had no idea about baking, making an awful tasting cake that to this day, still causes me to cringe every time i say or hear the word "easy bake oven". i can absolutely say that my baking skills have improved (or at least i think so) , but i definitely miss those days of playing dress up. <3

summer days

woven top: millau(LF), floral shorts: LF, boots: Jeffrey Campbell (purchased from Karen )

this has to be my official look of summer. sheers tops, floral printed anything, and of course, the "fro"(as fashion roux would say). although its so warm and beautiful out here in new orleans, most of my days will be spent indoors at work. the fitting rooms are my favorite place at work because of the rare type of sunlight that occupies the room, making it feel like its summer in the store.

pomp and circumstance ... i'm a graduate now!

dress: millau(LF), shoes: jeffrey campbell, necklace: banana republic
drink: the champagne of beers, miller hi-life

take a good look at this image. this is a young girl who has spent her youth in the dreary classrooms of xavier university. studying night after night biology, physics, biochemistry, and everything else that you can think of that sounds dreadful. the worst part of her years of studies was the realization that she no longer wanted to be a doctor, nurse, or anything having to do with the awful subjects previously mentioned before. despite her sudden change of heart, she was forced to endure three more, long , treacherous years at the university, studying night after night biology, physics, biochemistry, and everything else you can think of that sounds dreadful. but alas, she saw the light at the end of the tunnel. although she was miserable all of these years studying what her heart did not desire, she saw that she would accomplish something that does not happen everyday. she would soon be a college graduate, she would be free from her treacherous studies, and she would soon be able to study what her heart truly desires. so if you're wondering why the girl in the image looks the way she does, it's because she finally GRADUATED!!!

gigi: the bartender of the night - that made me a fabulous grad drink made with fresh watermelon, oranges, and mixture of different liquors. this drink was the beginning of the end of my night, or the reason why my actions were a little "intoxicating" ... hey you can only finish undergrad once right? why not live it up

i love, love, love xmas lights. i don't know why but they make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. if you have ever been to one of my parties, you will see how i always love to decorate with xmas lights. i will most likely be the only person on the block with her xmas lights on all year round.

fyi: the guy on the far right is my boyfriend, DJ, the "cinematographer"- please do not call him a camera man, he hates that. anywho, he's the one that so generously donated this picture taker to me, without which i may not have any shots of my grad party.

ok so i haven't been on blogger in a minute, i feel so terrible. there is just so much going on right now with life - graduating from school, work, and moving in two months ... sheesh! however, throughout the craziness, i have inherited a nice picture taker aka my boyfriend's camera, so that i will no longer have to rely on fashion roux for photo taking. so you will be seeing some pictures posted very soon ..... until next time <3

p.s. so i found this site that has a lot of really cool pics. you'll probably be seeing lots of photos since they are so inspiring. i sooooo feel like taking out the picture taker and having a photo shoot in an abandoned skating ring or something like that. check out johnny's bird.
