Ruffles and Lace

The lack of posts and blog time can be attributed to me starting my first week of school last week. Busy, busy, busy. And its only the first week. phew. I will do my best to make an outfit post at least once a week though.

Today I'm wearing a ruffles and lace tank from Hollister, Gilly Hicks skirt, shoes from Abercrombie and Fitch from years and years ago and Kim Kardashian handbag.

Christopher Kane Fall 2011 RTW

3 of my favorite looks from the Christopher Kane Fall 2011 RTW show. With his whole collection you need confidence to wear something like that, I love these particular looks because in some imaginary world I wish I had that sort of confidence.

Black one shoulder top

I don't wear black often. I'd like to wear the color more but most of what I have and what I buy tend to be blue, gray or white. And in the summer I rarely ever wear jeans, I usually migrate towards short shorts, dresses and skirts. Here is a black one shoulder top from Zara, Hollister jeans and shoes I got from Payless- a complete steal by the way.

What's in Your Purse?

I love reading the columns in magazines asking various famous people "whats in your purse".  I'm always fascinated at what they have. Some can be so typical for a celebrity like a plane ticket or a sharpie for autographs or something just like what I carry like Rosebud Salve or a pack of gum. I think it can tell a lot about a person, their personality, their habits. So I decided to do my own.
Share yours, I'd love to know!

Jessica Simpson handbag since the bag is too small I take the important things only which are: money, identification, sunglasses from Target, hand sanitizer cause I'm a germophobe, a pack of gum, keys, Rosebud Salve, Tarte face powder, a rosary that I always have with me from Italy and Lady Gaga's M.A.C lipstick and lipglass.

Baskets of pearls

forever 21 of course

Olsenboye Summer Dress

Today I opted for a simple summer dress from Olsenboye its flowy and makes me wanna salsa dance, Jessica Simpson heels and yellow Jessica Simpson bag.
I went to Schlitterbahn Waterpark yesterday with my family and boyfriend, so I'm definitely tanner. And I'm not one of those people that likes to be tan, it looks good on other people just not me. Oh winter please come soon.

My favorite books

Here is a handful of some of my favorite books, of course the list is bigger. It was really hard to pick just 5.

Breezy shirt and tan wedges

It was a 110 today in blistering hot Texas, which called for a light breezy, breathable shirt from the Gap, a nice airy skirt from Hollister and towering tan wedges from Jessica Simpson. If only this oufit were enough to withstand Texas heat.

On my mind

I've been wanting to start a blog for years, but have never really had the guts to put anything out. So I have less than 3 weeks before I start nursing school again and I decided with my free time I will do what I have had my heart set on for awhile. And then we have "pursuing poise", thanks to my wonderful creative boyfriend on the blog name.
There are lots and lots of blogs out there. I hope that "pursuing poise" can offer something a little different. As much as I adore expensive clothes, shoes, handbags and other countless items, the reality is I don't have the money for any of them. As a struggling college student all I can do if admire them from afar. My blog will consist of clothes people my age can actually afford, thoughts, obsessions and whatever else plagues my mind. enjoy it.


Definition of Poise:
     1. to hold or carry in equilibrium
     2. to hold suspended without motion in a steady position
     3. to put into readiness
