If I weren't a grad student ...

Grad student stipends are pretty miserable, and so I daydream quite a bit about what I'd buy if I had a little more expendable income.

(And speaking of expendable income, you all have the opportunity to win a nice little chunk of change - $1,000 to be exact! - by entering the Luck of the Irish $1,000 Visa gift card giveaway! I've teamed up with 34 other bloggers  to offer one lucky reader $1,000 to spend on anything you can imagine/want/need!)

But back to my fantasy land. If I had a grand to spend frivolously right now, I'd most likely spend it on clothes.  I'm really loving the black and white trend that is so popular for spring, so here is a wish list of what I just might buy, student loans be damned. I think I may have exceeded the budget by about $16. Fantasy land, people.

If you could spend $1,000 on anything right now, what would it be?


  1. Oh wow! I love all of this stuff, but the Modcloth dress is my absolute favorite!

  2. All your choices are great! Totally love the color block heels and polkadot pumps! I am also your new followef, feel free to stop by my blog anytime.

  3. Love your choices. My favs are the modcloth dress and the Kate Spade shoes. To Die For!!!! If I had $1000 I would buy my michael kors purse and the Tory Burch flats that I've been eyeing forever now.



  4. I feel you. I am also a grad/doctorate student, and I've never felt so poor in my life. I would definitely spend it on clothes and shoes of course. I would really like a pair of Valentino heels or J Crew shoes!


  5. Madewell tote, marc jacobs purse, and a few pairs of jcrew shoes

  6. I love that tote!! This is such a great collection of pieces. xx. McKenna Lou


  7. I feel you. I went to the mall yesterday with my mom (it's my spring break-- woo-hoo!) and saw this beauty in person. I had pinned it as soon as I saw it floating around the internet. My God. She's a beauty. I'd wear that bag all day, everyday.

    I'm SO entering this giveaway! I already follow a lot of the bloggers too.

  8. I love EVERY single one of these items! If I could spend $1,000 right now, I would probably buy a J.Crew blazer, Frye boots, some makeup, and a new pair of really good jeans!

  9. I'm pretty dang lucky ;) Well, because I'm Irish! Hah. Love your blog. Happy to be your newest follower. nauticalowl.blogspot.com

  10. I am sooo wishing I wasn't a student right now! There are so many cute things I want to get right now!


I love receiving your positive comments and feedback, and read and appreciate each and every one!
