Cloud Print Top c/o Sheinside, Forever 21 Belt, Spiked Headband (worn as bracelet) c/o Oasap


In this outfit, I'm wearing a bat-sleeved cloud print shirt from Sheinside! At first, I belted it to add shape but it was long enough on me that I could wear it as a dress. To add volume and a slight gradient effect, I wore my fuchsia H&M skirt underneath to make the dress poofy and give it a pink tinge on the bottom half :) I also am wearing a new moon and star necklace which I ordered off of eBay for $7 and my spiked headband as a bracelet. 

I spent most of today at the art studio working on my first oil pastel drawing which is of a cat! It doesn't sound that exciting but I'm very pleased with it and glad to be learning more of the basic techniques of art since I never took actual art classes, only classes in fashion. Today is the day that I have 3 classes at the studio, so I was there for the majority of the day :P I thought it would be a lot to take 8 classes a week but judging by the fact that on my off-days, I'm just at home lazing around, I think I may increase the load to 11 classes each week so I can get work done faster. If anyone who reads my blog is planning to prepare an art portfolio (even if you're not a rising senior like me), heed my advice and get started on it right now, whether it be on your own or through outside classes. Even if you're going into fashion, if you plan to apply to an art school that has other majors other than fashion, you should be prepared to present a fine arts portfolio, especially if the schools you are interested in require a foundation year (and even more so if you want/need a scholarship). I've been told by some of my readers that they appreciate my school/college ramblings so hopefully this is helpful to those who are curious!

  2. Very interesting outfit. The cloudy design on the dress is fabulous, and so is your gloriously long hair. The buckles and the studs offer a tough touch to the outfit along with the chic lace-up booties. Nice outfit, Jennifer!

  15. So I may or may not be back to commenting, though I never replied to that email and I really think that I should. Basically I'm really bad at being online these months, but it's being fixed? (I miss talking to you!) It's so great to hear about how many studio classes you're taking and I have no doubts that your portfolio is going to turn out well; you're right, early preparation is definitely key. Very cool print in your top and hope you've had a great weekend! xx
