Now A Diva Is A Female Version of a Hustla.

I just have to start this post by saying - those glasses, from this post? HOLY SHIT I LOVE THEM SO MUCH.

Zara Motorcycle Jacket, FCUK top, Bongo Jeans, Forever 21 rings, sunnies off EBay, Kensignton Market sandals.

What I wore to work today - Fridays are casual at the bank. I think the rings might have been a bit much for the office (all the ladies at work were like OMG THOSE ARE CRAZAY) but I don't really care, because on Friday I get to dress like myself, and it's extremely refreshing. Also, these might be the most comfortable sandals I've ever owned in my short, 19 year long life.

But seriously, these sunnies make me so happy.


Also, I'd like to take this post to spotlight two particularly thought provoking articles by one of my favourite bloggers, The Queen of Hearts

The first one is an article on what we could call "Fast Food Fashion" - huge chains like Forever 21 who produce cheap clothes for the masses and the effect that this clothing binge has both on us, and also the workers who work as little more than slave labour to produce it. Read it here.

The second one is an opinion piece about the rise of fashion bloggers as celebrities. The new breed of fashion blogger has daily photoshoots in incredibly scenic areas, receives crazy amounts of swag, and shops 'til she drops. These qualities don't really seem to capture the essence of what a blogger really is (at least to me) - an everyday Joe putting their opinion/look/ideas out there, and giving themselves a chance to be heard. Read it here.

Anyways, time to get my study on kids. My Orgo exam is on Monday and a fair amount of my future is riding on it.

That's me staring into the future in horror at the vision of this exam. And yes, those are totally the 3D glasses from the movie theatre with the lenses popped out, worn as personality glasses. Ironic, since I own real glasses and am pretty much blind without them.

Titular Song: "Diva" by Beyonce

P.S. I would like to dedicate this post to the talented, beautiful, FLAWLESS Beyonce Knowles who inspired me to buy these sunglasses (or ones exactly like them that happened to cost at least 200 dollars less.) I wouldn't be here without you!
