Ahhh. Saturdays (7/23). Letting my hair revel in all its frizzled waviness, glasses on for maximum librarian cheekiness (chic-iness?), grabbing a late lunch at one of the local restaurants a few paces from my place. JJ and I split two CBW Teriyaki and Fajita wraps, the former being smaller but yummier.

Outfit breakdown: Thanks to Soyfashion as my new sponsor! Rachel is super nice and generously put together a package for me to review. One of the tops was this lovely lace back tank, great for those hot days but still sticking with feminine style. It is so detailed and comfortable and the basic front is easily jazzed up with a multilayered or statement necklace. Once I get a neon lace bandeau, there's another look ready for this tank top. The rest of package is coming up in another post. Finally found a scallop hem skirt at Forever21, and the bright orange one I've been scoping out online. Unfortunately the only one left was a Medium, but it works as a paperbag waist skirt when belted. Lastly, finger mustache - be jelly.

Finally I got to browse SKY Boutique, a little clothing store that I always drool at through the window display  but haven't visited until now since it closes at 5 PM and heaven knows I never get off work that early. It was blazing hot as I ran across the street in my 4-inch + wedges after finishing another MCAT Bio chapter and to my dismay the shop owner was closing up early. Luckily, she saw my "nuuuuuuu" face and unlocked the door and omigod I never knew a room could hold that many beautiful pieces. Almost every single thing called my name but they were way out of my budget (most clothing $40-80). However, there was a $20 sale rack and I found the cutest sleeveless royal blue romper that I can't wait to show you. I tried it on and the slightly flared bottom did me in and the owner helped me cut off the tag. In the end, I introduced myself to Ariana (sp? super pretty name) as a fashion blogger and it was a crazy IRL moment. Soon I'm going to interview her and hopefully show you lovely pictures of her wonderful store (St. Louis readers - you're in luck!). I proudly wore the romper to an impromptu trip to the theatre to watch Captain America in 3D. Pretty good, and the guy is really dapper. Girls, go get some eye candy xD

Later, friends came over and made dinner and it was all good fun. Sunday, I went into work for a good 5 hours to test subjects. Beep. Chair. Beep. There's something calming about blasting nostalgic music while doing some work in the empty office surrounded by an empty hallway. Here's to break room coffee and Miss American Pie *cheers*

Trying out this new thing: text right after a few pictures. Do you like it or is the old way better with all the photos first, then my blabbing?

What kind of bra do you wear with the top? I avoid tops like that because I think it looks so tacky with your bra showing through!

Love the skirt! I saw a scalloped shorts online and when I inquired at the mall it's already sold out. Huhu. The top looks so lovely. Very delicate and dainty. :)

Same thing I heard about Captain America haha. I adore that bag you thrifted, Angie! It looks like a great piece and the color matches everything!

A VS strapless bra! It is a nude colour so I guess it blended in with the holes :) I can't figure out fancy straps and those weird stick-on things either

I love the lace back of the top. And the cracked nailpolish is badass. A lot of my friends have been using that. :P
