In which I out myself as a total slob

Want to know a secret? I haven't been posting outfit pictures lately because my outfits have sucked big time. I'm talking yoga pants and t-shirts paired with 2-for-$5 Old Navy flip flops. Instead of jewelry, I've been wearing Tostitos crumbs down my chest. That is how sloppy I've become since I got back to Boston.
How did I get here? Let me explain: you see, two weeks ago I made the biggest mistake of my life and decided to "pack light" for my trip back to school. Packing light is awesome if you're, say, spending a weekend at the Cape or backpacking through the Andes; however, I packed light for a 4-month-long stint in another state. I am dealing with such a random mess of clothing with me, I am at a loss for how to even create interesting outfits with what I have. What is a poor, broke, formerly stylish college student to do?

In steps Polyvore. It's this awesome site that lets you make outfit collages using clothes from your favorite stores. I can find my items (or items that look like them) on the site and mix and match them in creative combinations. Not to mention, I can make all the outfits I want using clothes I am lusting after but can't afford.

How do you like baby's first fashion collage?
All items via Modcloth.

Something tells me I'm going to have a lot of fun with this site this semester. That is, after I hit up the Comm Ave Goodwill for some cheap thrills. Old habits die hard.

Haha, I guess after your trip to goodwill you'll just have to do the 30 for 30.

I don't think I even know how to pack light, it's a skill truly lost on me...
