Stop Looking Down! Start Looking Up!


Ever since I started this entrepreneurial marketing course I have been taken on an psychological roller coaster.
One week I do very well and the prospects of passing are looking bright while the next I bomb an assignment or test and think there is no chance for me. 
It keeps on happening and I keep stressing. Now that I am close to the finish line, it's just an endurance game! In the end I realize that no matter what happens, I will come out much stronger than I was back in January as this is the true purpose of this course. 
So from today on, I will try to stop looking down and hopefully things will start to look up for me!



Sweater: Club Monaco
Skirt: H&M
Tights: Calvin Klein
Bag: Mulberry
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
Brooch: Vintage

Eu nu-s asa o mare iubitoare a SUA si Canada, ma cam sperie distanta si stilul de viata foarte diferit....insa cu siguranta iubesc faptul ca acolo fiecare poate fi el insusi si exista maxima toleranta, te imbraci cum vrei fara sa se uite lumea ca la circ cum patesti in Romania daca indraznesti sa inovezi si sa fii aparte. La noi daca nu ai "uniforma" strazii, esti fie depasita, fie ciudata. Imi plac asa mult constructiile tale evstimentare si fotografiile, aici cred ca te-ar arde pe rugul prejudecatilor :)) Eu daca port scurt si ruj intens nu o data am auzit calificative urate la adresa moralitatii, pentru ei si mintile lor inguste scurt = bitch.
Imi place mult fusta, nu m-as fi gandit ca da asa bine inclusa intr-un outfit casual-relaxat.

I love the outfit: you did an amazing job pairing the glittery skirt with that wonderful white sweater cape, the beret and brooch also look great. As for your resolution I think is the best one: you can only try and do your best, the stressing won't help a bit just drug you down, looking up seems like a great plan!:)

Oh that skirt is so wonderful!! So sparkly :X An well..from what I've heard ASE has a partnership with our University or something so they held a few exhibitions before there. Sure there are other galleries and I've seen them too during my first year when I didn't had my blog. And I guess they wanted to show the works out of the school grounds for more people to see.

Good luck with your course, I hope it goes well for you!

I really love this combo, the two textures are so pretty together. Also, I was so close to buying this skirt :P I wish I had, it looks so fabulous and versatile!

Just so sweet, the nails, the ruffles, your pretty face... You look so beautiful looking down, but do look up! I know about mental roller-coasters. If we just stick to it, sit through the difficult moments - not so easy, but doable - the sun always comes out. And we can feel proud of making it through.

Ow, you shouldn't feel left out:(. We would have loved to have you here with us!

Yet I understand you, that's how I felt when I wasn't able to attend the AbFab fair.

Anyway, hopefully it won't be long until we finally meet :D.
