     Shoes: Lord & Taylor 

Shoes: TJ Maxx

 Shoes: Nordstrom Rack

         Oxfords, Oxfords, Oxfords!! 
These shoes are my all time favorite. I really love shoes with patterns and my cheetah print oxfords are so quirky it's unbelievable! While taking these shots I thought doing this Michael Jackson-esque relevae would be really cool until I truly experienced the pains of a pointe dancer. Once I went up on my tippy toes I came down mighty fast and I'm so glad I didn't take a whole shot of my body because I was surely not Pillsbury Dough boy happy. On to the next pair, my  all black oxfords have a little ballet flat twist so they're very comfortable. I plan on wearing these pair to school (yes I just  said the dreadful S word, school) since my school has a dress code. This pair has subtle speckles of silver and with silver accessories the speckles are really brought out. Now for the finale, my last pair are the dressiest. Whenever I slip these bad boys on my Michael Jackson alter ego turns on as soon as they're laced up. This pair actually has every color of my drab uniform in them so I'm going to wear these to school also. Even though dress code states each student is suppose to wear all black shoes I'm going to be a rebel this year! Talking about school makes me depressed now that summer is slowly leaving, but I plan on customizing my uniform which will brighten up my day just a bit. In the future I do plan on making a post centered on uniforms and school so stay tuned. 
Which pair of oxfords were your favorite 1,2,or 3 leave a comment it would make my day!

Who Are You?
   Diop (Dee-op) Russell  
Big haired dreamer with a blog.

Diop as in:
Aloha saying, twirling elf, pointy shoe lover, professional internet user, artsy kind of girl. 
The purpose of this post is to get you to know me and depending on how fast you read you'll be welcomed into my world in no time.

1. Honestly, the only television show I watch is "The Carrie Diaries" if you asked me to recite the first episode for you I'd change my voice for each character and everything.

2. Ditsy is my favorite word and I use it to describe every walking form of life.

3. Chipotle is the bomb!

4. I get mistaken for a 10 year older WAY too often

5. My day consist of listening to Lorde (not as in the Lord, but the artist Lorde), reading old magazines, reacting The Great Gatsby, and taking pictures. 

6. I really love converse with all my heart

7. Cold weather is the best, I rather lay around in covers than sweat in the sun.

8. My sisters and I could sit around watching Grease 2 on a loop and never get tired of it.

9. Me: Never been on an air plane. You: Whaaa ?!?

10. Polka Dots or Floral Print? BOTH!

Now you are all prepared to stalk me! Just kidding with ya!! Hopefully, we can be friends now and virtual high fives all around for reading this!!

 Blouse: TJ Maxx Sweater: TJ Maxx Jeans: Gap Shoes: Converse Sunnies: Handmade 
Necklace: Betsy Johnson Purse: Coach

I really didn't know I had this much navy blue! I really dig today's outfit because its quite basic. One color outfits actually save you quite a bit of time when you're in a rush. This morning I literally just gathered a collection of things in the same color family and headed out. Now before you say anything, it was blinding outside so I had to put on my sunglasses and my neon sunnies aren't one bit navy blue so just excuse them. On a different note, today we went to Whole Foods (one of my favorite places) where my sisters and I had a photo shoot. I pulled out my handy dandy camera and we captured every step we took. I realized two things today:
1. I have the world's weirdest walk.
2. When at Whole Foods laugh very quietly, or all the elderly women will grim you to an extreme!
(I didn't mind because I was enjoying my pizza way to much and my family is quite entertaining.) 

Farewell for now my little fashion forward munchkins.

Skirt: Forever 21 Tank: Forever 21 Necklace: Betsy Johnson Shoes: Nordstroms Rack Bracelet: Claire's

Today I wanted my outfit to take on more of a monochromatic vibe, but as shown I didn't really go down that route. While picking out my outfit I heard a little cry come from my closet, it was my all time favorite clickity-clackity combat boots begging me to wear them. I couldn't resist and threw them on. Then I added a couple more neutral accessories so my babies (my over worn combat boots) wouldn't look too out of place. 
Oh, if you haven't heard the news yet my birthday was just three days ago, and I celebrated with some of my chummies, Zoe left and Tamia right. Our day consisted of staring at a gigantic screen watching little blue elves prance around (or in other words watching Smurfs 2), shopping, and eating at Red Robins! I must say today was pretty awesome, plus I had a good hair day which is always amazing.
