 I'm wearing a Chloe vintage blouse over an H&M maxi dress, with Jeffrey Campbell boots, Calvin Klein pleather newsboy cap, and borrowed sunglasses. Wow that sounds like a mouthful, WOO. 

The past 24 hours has been one of the craziest days I've ever had. Seriously, it was a crazy bomb waiting to explode (me being the bomb of course). Yesterday, I received an e-mail from Fashion Institute of Technology, informing me that I was put on the wait list for Fall 2011. I was completely shocked. After all, I felt I had a large chance of getting accepted immediately. My grades were average: I couldn't complain, because I tried to the full extent of my ability to get As and Bs during my last two years of high school . I definitely wasn't lacking experience in fashion: I interned as a production assistant for a show during NYFW, plus I worked backstage in a few runway shows, AND I attended shows to blog about. So, I pondered last night. I pondered. I slept. Pondered some more. Slept some more. I repeated this cycle a couple of times last night.  Plus, I added some crying to that pathetic cycle. 

 I knew that I couldn't cry to solve the problem. So after a load of advice coming from different sources, I decided to fight for something I felt like I deserved. Normally, I would throw in the towel, and say, "C'est La Vie," but this time I didn't want to. I wanted to try to improve the situation and make sure my voice was heard by the admission office. I walked in, asked why I didn't get in, and bam! I felt so much better. I felt a huge load of rocks have been lifted off my back. I can finally breath.  

Ok, I wrote a whole Dr. Phil synopsis of my current life story. Normally, I wouldn't write these long personal journal entries, but I wanted to reflect on one of the biggest life lessons I've learned; never give up and always fight for what you believe in. Never take no or maybe for an answer, because you're worth a whole load of yes's. And even if you try hard and still get a no, move on to the next project or opportunity.  

Like my friend, Jose said to me last night, "keep your head up high," so that is what I'm going to do.

Anyways, it's been a while since I did a streetstyle post. I was skimming through my blog, so disappointed by the lack of personal style photos. So, here's one of many more! Also, this is late, but did any of you like the fall collections for 2011-2012? I can't wait to spend my money on the fall 2011 archives, especially for Paris! 

I'm wearing vintage fur coat, vintage boots, urban outfitters sweater dress, (on sale!), necklace by sydandpia and vintage hat....vintageeeeeeee! Notice this ...buying anything full priced or completely new is not my style. ;)
