Yom Kippur

Even though I'm only half a Jew I still like to celebrate Yom Kippur. My cousin Dan and I fast every year, then go to our relatives' house to break the fast with the rest of the family. I was disappointed this year to find my 2nd cousin 3x removed had forgotten all about the kugel-- my favorite! Oh well, maybe next year. Or I could try to score the secret Saltzberg family recipe and make it myself...
Conservative and sexy. Good thing I wore a slip cause the wind was out with a vengeance when we left my building.
This next one is really posed but I had to get one with the shoes in it:
Speaking of shoes...

Tough Choice

This one's from last Saturday. I woke up at 11, took forever to get ready, then set out to run some errands. I got a few blocks from my apartment, realized I had about 100 hours' worth of homework due on Monday and decided to go back and finish some of it. I did not regret that decision. One more step towards responsible adulthood!

The top I wore today was originally a strapless dress. The night before I left for school I hacked the top off to make it into a skirt. It also works remarkably well as a belted tunic. I love versatility!
I used Liz's camera for today's shots. Although my dad offered to give me his I'm thinking about just biting the bullet and getting myself a new camera. Thoughts on what model is best for a starving college student/avid photoblogger?

Taking the Plunge

I had been wanting bangs for like... a week and a half now. And my roots needed a touch-up at the salon anyway, so I just went for it:

Thanks to Alex and Joey of Bradley and Diegel!

That's Dedication

Pictures courtesy of roomie Monique's camera. I'm still not sure what I'm going to do about this whole camera breaking business but hopefully I'll be back in action sometime soon.

Killing Two Birds with One Stone

Since my camera is not repairable and I have a very intimidating Arabic quiz on Wednesday, I figured I would mix business with pleasure and give you guys a little vocab lesson! Let's begin:

Dress = ﻓﺴﺘﺎﻦ = "fus-TAAN" (via ModCloth)
skirt =ﺗﻨﻮﺮة = "ta-NOO-ra" (via Ruche)
Blouse = ﺑﻠﻮزة = "BLOO-za" (via Ruche)
shirt =ﻗﻤﻴﺺ = "qa-MEES" (via Forever 21)
Sweater = ﺑﻠﻮﻓﺮ = "BUL-ofer" (kind of like "pullover") (via ModCloth)

OK, now onto the other 100 vocab words I have to memorize. Wish me luck!
