I had a great shopping week on ThredUp

 Friday, May 8, 2015

There's no secret that I love ThredUp. I've blogged about the online consignment store several times. ThredUp is one of the only stores I check daily, I have several bookmarks for my favorite brands on the site! Nothing beats finding a holy grail on sale so I often find myself browsing the site.

This week was an exceptional week! I got three awesome deals and I had to share them with you.


This morning I purchased my first longchamp bag! I've wanted one forever but never wanted to spend more than $75 for a nylon bag. I'm still trying to figure out the name of this style. I love the black on black and the size (listed on ThredUp) seems like it is somewhere between the Medium and Large Shoulder tote. I'm sure Ill get some great use out of this next year in NYC. I'm always looking for shoulder bags that zip all the way and can carry a good amount. This bag on thred up was only $59, a steal considering this same bag would cost over $125 online!

I also picked up this great little J.Crew sweatshirt today. I love embellished sweatshirts (cute and comfy!) and this will go with so many of my skirts! For $18, it was a great staple in my closet.


I thought Lilly Pulitzer Wool dress was a great find for less than $40. It's hard for me to find sweater dresses and this one has two of my favorite colors! This will be a great fall dress to own!


Finally, my holy grail purchase! The Lilly Pulitzer Quinn dress is one of my all time favorite lilly dresses. It fits me great (I have it in Yellow/Multi Patch) and it is an effortless chic summer look. Everyone complements me on my yellow one and can't believe this is a dress and not a shirt/skirt combo. I'm debating whether or not to wear this for graduation!

That was my fantastic week of ThredUp purchases. Have you bought anything on ThredUp lately? Use this link to save $10 off your first purchase!


Spring Must Have:: Charles River Rain Jacket from Marley Lilly

 Wednesday, May 6, 2015

It's May! Spring is in full bloom and summer is just around the corner. I am enjoying the last few weeks of my college career and trying to get the most out of being on campus with my friends. I've been spending a lot of time outdoors and will not let bad weather get me down. It's been raining a lot in Virginia and I need to be prepared for all kinds of weather that will come my way.
That's why my new essential is my Charles River New Englander Rain Jacket. The jacket is waterproof and made with tons of smart features. I love that the jacket is lined in grey mesh which helps for air-flow circulation. The jacket is surprisingly warm! Recently, Ive been grabbing this even if it hasn't been raining because it's still a great summer jacket. The jacket comes in so many great colors but I chose Coral.

Here's the jacket!

You can even get this jacket monogrammed! Marley Lilly is one of my favorite sites to buy monogrammed goods and they have a monogrammed version of this jacket for $55! This is my third product from Charles River brand and Ive loved them all. This jacket will last me a while and Im sure I will put it through some hard times!

I'm sorry for the awkward pictures in my sorority bathroom but you can see the fit on me! Overall, I absolutely love this jacket and can't recommend it enough! I love the color, fit, and the quality!


Let your jewelry shine!

Just look at these beautiful outfits!

lace dress and jewelry
blue jeans

My favorite part? The jewelry! Picking up a few beautiful pieces of jewelry can really change your wardrobe. But, what happens when you get sick of your jewelry? Usually I just put the pieces that Ive worn-out in my jewelry black hole (a.k.a. the back of my closet).

That's why I really love Rocksbox. It's kind of like the Rent the Runway for jewelry! Every month you get three amazing pieces of jewelry for only $19. When you get sick of your pieces or want something new you can return them and get a new set! If you like something- buy it! You even get monthly spend on Rocksbox that you can use towards the purchase of your new love. Ive bought a few gorjana pieces because of my subscription, I hadn't even heard of the brand before getting it. 

All of the jewelry in these outfits are featured on Rocksbox! Use the code preppystudentxoxo to get your first month free. What are you waiting for?


Shows to watch! (Or to binge watch)

 Sunday, April 26, 2015

Hello everyone! It's crazy to think that I just completed my last full semester in college. Four years just flew by right in front of me! I'll have the next couple weeks to relax and study for the GMAT before my next big adventure. In that time I hope to get some R&R and to watch a few great shows.

1. Mad Men.
Ok, so my suggestion to watch Mad Men isn't exactly new or novel. Mad Men is still my favorite show on television. Yet, my favorite part about watching Mad Men comes after I finish an episode. I've turned into one of the geeky television lovers who read recaps and blog posts about each episodes. Mad Men's costume designer- Janie Bryant- is simply genius. The costumes alone are a reason to watch this show and if you have time I would whole-heartily suggest reading Mad Style or other mad men style related blog posts. The only problem? You can't find the recent episodes on Netflix or Hulu. But if you haven't yet watched the first couple seasons you can find them on Netflix.

2.  The Kroll Show & Broad City
I am a sucker for Comedy and I get my fix from shows like the Kroll Show and Broad City. These two shows will make you laugh. That's reason enough to add them to your Hulu queue! 

3. Flip or Flop
As I've gotten older, my obsession with HGTV has grown. I love watching Flip or Flop (now on Netflix) as a easy to watch show. Yes, we know what's going to happen (surprise! the gross house becomes beautiful) but it's still a fun ride to see a decrepit house become an expensive home.

4. The Paradise
Ladies! This is what I imagine all romantic historical fictions books to look like. Paradise has elegance and beauty and fun characters. I feel like Ive traveled to a whole new time and beautiful world watching this show. Even though I like the supplemental characters more than the main characters, I enjoy following this story about the first department store. The show is made by BBC and you can find it on Netflix.

5. Shark Tank
Entrepreneurship is pretty cool. Nuff Said.


Still looking for a summer internship? Check out Campus Job!

 Sunday, April 12, 2015

I hope everyone has had a great weekend! I am just finishing up my last full semester in college. It's just absolutely crazy how fast four years flew by! I cannot believe that I only have a spring semester left before graduation comes on by.

This year I've been staying in the sorority house (because of my recent presidency) so I've gotten to know and build relationships with a lot of underclassman. I am so sick of hearing some of them complain about not knowing where to look for summer internships! Over the past few weeks Ive been helping some friends with internship searches and I came across this really cool new website- Campus Job!

Campus Job is a cool new venture that hopes to help college students find opportunities and internships. It's really pretty cool! Some of the postings are for cool established companies while others are for new ventures.

If you're a student looking for a summer internship you should definitely check the site out! And if you already have a summer internship, check out the site for a brand ambassador or college rep role for next year. These are great positions to gain some experience and money while in college.

That's it for me today! Hope y'all have a great week!
