Such Great Heights


These pumps are clearly not made for walking! These sky high heels are longer than the shoe itself making you stand at an uncomfortable pointe like ballet. Although the shoe is unpractical it's a masterpiece to those with a fetish for the art of shoes!

Just getting over one of the most tragic/ yet somehow still fun, nights of my life...
i would have liked to stay home in bed, but its one of the last nights I have to spend with my girls so out we go!

I chose to keep i simple tonight because thats how i was feeling. This outfit was soo last minute but somehow it came but looking really cute. Going by the colors i would call it Sailor-esq!

I even got us into the club for free! the guy at the door said i was gorgeous!  lol

Wearing: thrifted blazer, jeans, & Jessica Simpson red suede platform bow tie pumps.

Feeling like a LumberJack layered up for the first snow day of the season!
finally decided to get out the bed and do something with my life so off to lunch and thrifting.

Meet Jack!

We went to Mai Thai, and the food was sooo yummy. Chicken skewers, and shrimp spring rolls.

Wearing: AE hat, green Jacket, Wrap scarf, Nothface fleece, jeans, & UO Boots

Never Go Wrong With Neutrals

Had an interview today (CrossingMyFingers) hoping for the best.
I tried to go for a more casual look: the blazer and jeans, paired with a pump to establish that "I'm here for the interview!" Without being to over the top.

My roommate told me that whenever I'm trying on an outfit i stare at myself in the mirror with my thumbs in my front pockets, lol. i Guess it's a habit.

Wearing: Vintage Tweed Blazer, Silk Blouse, Jeans, Nine West Wooden Wedge Heels

Off To Class With Class

I decided to wear a dress today! Thankful for the beautiful weather, not hot but the way a fall day should feel with the sun shining bright. Today accomplishments have to be made, and yearbook pictures have to be taken.

My roommate thought i needed a change in background. lol

Wearing: H&M Peacock Dress, H&M oversized shrug, belt, riding boots.

Night On The Town

This was one of the most fun nights i've had in DC with the girls.
we went on U street and Adams Morgan searching for something to do and had the night of our lives.
First we went to a really cute restaurant called Bus Boys & Poets, i had a really good turkey burger with sweet potato fries.
On the way back down the street we stumlbed upon a little salsa club that was giving salsa dancing lessons so we went in to check it out and ended up having a great time!
so much fun

Wearing: Thrifted Zara Jacket, Nudie Jeans, Cranberry U.O. flats, navy O.U. V-neck

Last night was wild! We went to a total of 4 clubs, and for each lets just say i was 21.
So 1st we went to an open bar, after one pineapple&vodka, three cranberry&vodkas, and one ginatonic, we were off to the next few clubs.
After the 4th we decided to call it a night and had the cutest brunch at Kramers around 3am
As if that wasn't enough i got in the car and realized that after changing into my flats i lost a pump and we went searching the town to find it... thankfully it was by one of the places we had parked, it got a little wet but I'm just happy to have my shoe!

The flats, couldn't go the whole night without them.

I love this suit case style purse i found while thrifting.

Wearing vintage pink blouse, vintage oversized blazer, and Dolce Vita pumps.

"Take an Elle" is simply a play on the term "take an L" which stands for taking a loss.
in this case "elle" represents me. So welcome to my Blog, a place where i will showcase my lifestyle focusing on the fashion aspect.
So welcome and Take an Elle, or take me for who I am;)
