Pandaphilia Featured on Suddenly Darling 2-7-2011 to 3-30-2011

When I logged into Suddenly Darling today, I was surprised to see that I was the featured member for February 17, 2011. Read the article here! I've been so caught up with exams and craziness that I haven't even noticed until now! Thank you so much - I'm super flattered! It was an outfit I submitted for a Darling of the Month contest a while back and it made me smile to see all the nice comments. Sometimes when you feel completely un-gorgeous after a straight week of non-stop intense work, a little thing like that can absolutely brighten up your day. 

The Darling Tip was: "Lose the tights and boots on a sunny day! You'll still look darling!" I would love to agree but it's still freezing temperatures here in STL. Please, spring, come back !

Suddenly Darling is a site run by Katelyn Rose, and the key is modesty in how you dress yourself. I first learned about this site from Kristy's DOTM contest entry (I love this girl - she has such refined style!). This site is nice for girls to learn and share how they can dress fashionably without showing off too much skin and I've seen a lot of adorable outfits. 

Whew! An update on life: After a long week involving 3 difficult exams, a neuroscience summer research application, and more sleep-robbers, I finally got to exhale and have fun Friday and Saturday! It's been a long time and I realize that blogging is what keeps me sane during the school year, but time is short and my to-do list is long. I have been taking photos every once in a while, so I can sneak in a few posts every once in a while. 

Yesterday I went out with my research lab and we had a blast at a sushi bar. It was pretty affordable and I really enjoyed getting to hang out with my co-workers and let loose. My friends and I then went to a karaoke night and followed up with a costume party. My boyfriend and I went as Popeye the Sailor man and a Sailor Girl (I didn't want to dress like Olive Oyl haha) and I even used black lipstick to draw on fake anchor tattoos onto his arms. Of course we took photos and I'll have to post those later. 

Last night, I slept for a grand total of 14 hours to make up that accumulated sleep debt and went to the mall to celebrate. At H&M I picked up some interesting pieces, like an adorable swallow print skirt, some sale items I have been craving since early winter, and a butterfly cropped top complete with bowler hats. As the weather warms, I'll be taking photos outside again yay! I also discovered the gaudiest store ever: Love Culture; much worse than F21 in terms of layout and store decor. Speaking of which, at Forever 21, I scored a faux fur leopard jacket that I've always wanted and a shearling jacket for $10 each. We had Five Guys to keep us stuffed and happy (you MUST eat there if you ever pass by one - such amazing burgers and fries!) and I did a whole lot of walking in my furry boots. Maximum relaxation, accomplished. Other than that, how I relax is watching animal documentaries. Has anyone noticed how mean David Attenborough is to nature? He likes disturbing the balance for the sake of getting a nice look into a termite hive. I still love the old man - what animal show would be complete without his charming British voice in the background?

Tell me how you guys have been! I have missed you so much : )
♥ Angie

Your outfit does warrant such a great feature! Congratulations and the bright yellow and blue really go nicely together. WHOAH 14 hrs is enough to put a nice deposit in your sleep bank, now you can withdraw as much "no sleep" as you need heehee. Good luck with your studies, the end is certainly near!

Congrats on the feature! I was hoping you wouldn't be able to stay completely away from blogging forever :) I'll look forward to seeing more posts from you!
