Delta Zeta Formal

This past weekend, my chapter of Delta Zeta had our fall semester formal! I thought I would share my outfit and a new skincare secret!

Since it is in November, most people opt to wear darker colors for fall formal, and then go all out with patterns and colorful dresses for the spring. Fall also tends to be less formal.


Here I am with my little and little little! I wore a black lace dress from Delia’s. I know what you’re thinking… is she 15? But since I am a very small person, if I don’t want to have to take in a dress, shopping at a “juniors” store gives me more fit options. Also, this dress is very adult looking, the perfect length, and it was about $20.


I chose to accessorize with pops of bright pink, my shoes from Sam Edelman, a skinny Kate Spade bangle, (not shown) my Kate Spade cross body bag, and with my handsome boyfriend!

I curled the bottom three inches or so of my hair with my Jose Eber Clipless Curling Iron. It is actually my favorite hair accessory.

Leading up to formal, I was worried about the effect that the cold dry air was having on my skin. Luckily, I got a special delivery from Influenster: A full size sample of Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion. I already use Vaseline lotion with Cocoa Butter, but this new formula really seems to penetrate deeper into my skin. It has worked absolute wonders, especially my legs, which get so dry from shaving.


I had an amazing time at formal and couldn’t be more excited to continue using Vaseline lotion!


Halloweekend and an Influenster Surprise

Once again, I have fallen behind on my blogging. I promise I’m having a super stressful semester (because otherwise it would be totally unacceptable) but now that my Honors Thesis Proposal has been submitted, and everything is kind of winding down, I have a little more time to write (if writing at 2:30 in the morning qualifies as more time).

Just before Halloween, I received a $50 Victoria’s Secret gift card from Influenster for completing their brand badge on my VSX Sports Bra! I finally got to spend it at Pink, and I spent it on new undies and a really cute limited edition Halloween tank!



While I don’t feel the need to post a picture of my underwear on the internet, however cute they may be, I will say that the Date Collection is stunning and really comfortable… especially if you’re, ahem, smaller.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, so I thought I would go all out this year and attempt a pinterest worthy costume: a piñata. I spent a week gluing crepe paper to a dress and making it perfect. Then, the night I was supposed to wear the costume, I tried it on… and got stuck in it. Both of my roommates were out and I was just on the floor of my living room, crying while stuck inside a rock hard piñata dress.

Luckily, I pulled myself together and put on my ultimate white girl costume.


No one could figure out what my sister KC and I were, but we were a mouse and a panda. duh.


I had a really great night, and my nose stayed on the whole time I was out. I’d say that was an accomplishment!
