Do It Yourself Tuesdays: High-waisted Skirts

Like most of you, I am a (recently graduated but not willing to accept it) college student who would rather dish out money for fashion than food. But sometimes, like in a recession...or when I'm really hungry, that doesn't work out so well. A girl's gotta eat (and look fabulous), right?

While waiting at JFK for my ride not too long ago, I was passing the time by sipping on some much needed coffee and people watching. Airports, with their mix of cultures and characters, are the best places to people watch. All was going well until...out of nowhere...I saw it: a fanny pack.

With the PGA Championship going on, I've truly been trying to take interest in the sport, but before I know it, I'm watching reruns of One Tree Hill on Soap Net and I have no idea how or when it happened. I can't help it, I'm smitten for Chad Michael Murray.
