Here's the Dilemma...

Hello everyone!

As you may or may have noticed, I haven't been posting frequently (at all). I'm not retiring this blog, I am simply informing my followers and anyone else who reads my blog, that this is the way it's going to be for quite some time. I started college at the beginning of September and I live in residence. The problem is that everyone who lives in residence has a weekly allowance of only 5GB of internet...let that sink in...to put it into plain terms, that is not a whole lot of internet. Blogging consumes a ton of that 5GB, which is why I've only been able to do 2 posts a week, tops. I'm thinking about possibly getting an external service provider (more GB) in the near future...but, for now I won't be posting frequently, which makes me sad. Please bear with me! I really appreciate all the love and support I've gotten from everyone who frequents my little bloggy!

xoxo, Quinn

Very Fancy





 Wearing: cardigan-thrifted; skirt-Topshop; wedges-Guess

Hello everyone! I can finally say that my (unannounced) hiatus had officially ended. I needed to focus on my school work for the past two weeks since I had a whirlwind of studying to do (the dreaded midterms...). I'm hoping to return to posting normally, though. I must admit that it is quite difficult for many reasons, one of which being that my weekly allowance of internet bandwidth is 5GB and if you've ever used the internet (which I'm assuming you have if you're reading this) you'll know that is a very measly amount! I'll probably be posting 3-4 times a week, ideally. 
On to the outfit! Yes, I realize that I've basically worn this skirt in my past outfits quite frequently, but I'm honestly just trying to justify the fact that it cost $70...

Sparkle Motion






Wearing: top and shoes-thrifted; skirt-C/O Oasap; tights-C/O Tights Please; sunglasses-C/O Giant Vintage

I was contacted by Bernadette from the UK based Tights Please and asked to review a couple of pairs of tights from their shop. My first choice was these Pamela Mann sparkle tights! I love how they add an interesting spin on the otherwise plain black hosiery that we're used to seeing each fall. I immediately thought of the Chanel Fall 2012 couture collection when I saw them and was inspired by one of the looks from the collection along with one of my style icons, the always adorable Alexa Chung.
