Slippin' It

by Lauren Corbett


Yes! I am back! I know that I have not posted since February and I apologize for that. There were a lot of personal affairs that I had to deal with and you can read more about my break in my monthly newsletter. I really wanted to come back with new sections on my blog, but I just could not wait, so here I am! I will add new sections within the next few days. 

I have been wanting to shoot this look for a long time. Originally, I planned to wear a black and white baseball jersey, but I lost it. You would not believe that I my whole outfit is from the thrift store except for the jewelry. And yes, I am wearing an actual slip! You can't see it, but I tied the back with a hair tie to make it look like a fitted dress. I love exposing intimates on occasion (like New Year's Eve), but of course this look would be worn at night. It would be a little too risqué if I worn it during the day. 

What do you all think about wearing exposed intimates?

Overachiever.

by Lauren Corbett


These pictures are more recent. Taken in late summer/early fall. 

Overachiever. As most of you know, I attend Virginia Commonwealth University and major in Fashion Merchandising. What you may not know is that I am an overachiever. I have always had a strong work ethic, which has resulted in good grades and a slew of awards (not saying that in a boastful way). While I believe my desire to succeed and do well in school is great, I realized that my well-being comes first and foremost. 

Last semester was rough, which is why I did not post as much as I wanted. I was dealing with teleworking full-time, attending classes where I was required to be a part of semester-long group projects, increase in rent, struggling financially, and etc. It was definitely stressful and I finally realized right after the semester that I took on too much. Every other day, I was probably crying or snappy. I finished strong though -- All A's and one B.

I am happy to say that this semester, I have a lighter workload and am more focused on my well-being. The reason why I wanted to write this post was to tell anyone reading it, please do not take on more than you can handle. Your health (physical and mental) come before anything else.
