where are you, fall?

 shirt: unknown.
jeggings: unknown.
boots: forever 21.
necklace: forever 21.

It's practically October, and people are still wearing shorts. Does anyone else think there's something wrong with that? I'm ready to make use of my huge scarf and sweater collection! It was definitely nice to see the sun out today after the rain. But still the temperature is still too hot for the fall that I remember. I am so ready for the smell of the air that I always associate with fall!

On a side note, I really need to take better pictures of my looks. Currently I am using my phone's camera with self timer on top of my microwave (so the angle makes my legs look even shorter!). I need friends with cameras, so I can take pictures in places other than in front of my dorm wardrobe....
Also, I really need to start remembering where I buy my clothes. I feel so dumb putting up "unknown" for half of the things in my outfit. I will try my best to either remember where I get the clothes from or just buy new clothes so it's easier to remember. I'm thinking the latter ;)

Speaking of shopping, my birthday is coming up. And my family is coming into town the weekend after, and I am sad to say that my mom still pays for pretty much all my clothes. I feel terrible, but how else am I supposed to pay for them right now? Poor college kid...but I am looking for a lot of versatile basics that I can wear this fall. I am currently working on my fall fashion wishlist, and I will post it up for all of you to check out!

Can't wait to really get this blog rolling. Thanks for reading and sticking around while I get my feet on the ground!

welcome!


Hello, everyone and welcome to my personal style blog!


I've never had my own personal style blog before, but I’ve always been crazy about fashion and the excitement that goes into the whole industry and art, so this is why I am here!

Just a few things about myself…

My name is Bria. I am 17 years old, and I attend Virginia Commonwealth University as a Dance & Choreography major and a Biology minor. I am also currently a trainee with the Richmond Ballet. I am known on the interwebs as briaballerina, and I have a personal blog that I have had for about 3 years now at http://briaballerina.blogspot.com. You can check that out for all my dance/college adventures, and I will keep this blog strictly to fashion and the things that inspire my personal style.


Random facts about me: I was born in Orange, California. I’m a caffeine addict – coffee, tea, rockstar energy drinks, and diet coke are my weaknesses. I am a pescetarian. My favorite animal is an octopus, but since they’re hard to keep as pets I love cats almost just as much as octopi. I am addicted to electro/house music. And I’m a movie, book, and video game junkie.


Recently I have been a featured fashionista on a style blog – breckenridgeclare.com! Please check out Breck’s blog During the interview, Breck informed me about RVAFB, and it sounded like something that I want to be a part of. So you will also see me being involved with that fashion blog too!


I have too many tons of social networking sites that you can check out to get to know me a little better!
twitter = @briaballerina
tumblr = briaballerina.tumblr.com
lookbook = lookbook.nu/briaballerina
youtube = youtube.com/briaballerina


…I’m sure you’re starting to see a trend here. I love getting questions about anything + everything, so if you have any questions or have any requests of what you’d like to see on this blog, you can shoot me an e-mail at briagepitulan@gmail.com or ask me a question in my ask box on tumblr!


Thanks for checking out my blog, and I can’t wait to get this all started!
