why?

Dress from FCUK   Leg Warmers/Belt from H&M  Boots from Steve Madden   Necklace from Winners
**the scarf was a gift
I heard this story about a University student in Toronto (and take this with a grain of salt, people have very creative minds) who might have written the most epic essay in the history of ever.

It was a philosophy final, and the broad question that the professor asked the class was:
 
"Why?"
 
The entire class spent the whole three hours mauling over their essays, while one particularly awesome guy finished in aproximately a minute and handed in his paper. He later got his final mark, which was an A+. He had written two simple words (and a punctuation): 
 
"Why not?"
 
A pretty good philosophy to live by ;)

My mom always taught me, never answer a question with a question ;)

I love how you wrapped the belt around the scarf. Great way to maintain the tiny waistline! Plus, that scarf is amazing!

Also, thank you for your sweet comments on my blog (District Dress Up). I am a HUGE sale shopper and snagged a ton of great FCUK dresses. At the end of the season, they marked down most of their dresses (from $200 to $120ish) and then added a 50% off of all sale items. They usually do this december/january so I'd pop in one day if you have a store near you! Also, I've sold a ton of my FCUK dresses on EBbay for around $50/$60 and noticed a lot of great pieces on there. That is also a good place to look if you like a piece from a previous season.

Anyway, my comment turned into a novel! Love your blog and thanks so much for checking out mine!

Katya said...

That's amazing! Honestly that's so epic. And kind of inspirational :) Thanks for sharing! And I really love your belted scarf :)

Katya said...

Awesome story!:) And your outfit is gorgeous as always!:)Xx

Katya said...

wow! you are beautiful. you're glowing! and that is hilarious. I wonder if I would have been smart enough to come up with "why not?". ha ha.

Katya said...

Katya said...

That is so true! I really like the belted scarf and the over the knee socks are so fun! Heather

Katya said...

Why not is right! :)

You look lovely, all the layers here are gorgeous!

Katya said...

Love love the scarf, not just because of the brand but also the colour and the stracture of it.
Why not- great answer. I think if I had gotten this topic on a test I would've written so much crap haha

Katya said...

Your bun look perfect! And what a way to earn an A+. I wish it were that easy.

I just found your blog and look forward to reading more. Hahah on Why Not. As a teacher, I've had some pretty awesome work turned in that qualified under the more is less scenario. :) Beautiful outfit and I love the idea of the socks outside of the boots!

Katya said...

I absolutely love this.
And that outfit of yours.

Katya said...

As a teacher, part of me is like, "smart ass" but then considering it was a philosophy class a "why not?" answer seems appropriate and it made me smile. Thanks for that post.

Katya said...

Love it! Good story. Also, I love the outfit. Very cute. Also, the scarf was an awesome gift. :-)

Thanks so much! Speaking of awesome work turned in by students - I think you'll really appreciate this site: http://shitmystudentswrite.tumblr.com/

Katya said...

Oh so many teachers commenting. I have to share this link with all of you guys! I think you'll really enjoy it! http://shitmystudentswrite.tumblr.com/

Katya said...

Ditto, my hand would have been so sore after three hours of trying to cram every possible word into the essay. If only all answers were as simple as "Why not?"

Katya said...

Thanks so much! Making me blush over here - probably not the kind of glowing you meant ha ha ;)

Katya said...

It's a good thing I love to read ;)

Thanks for the awesome tips! I'm always swooning over their dresses, especially around the holiday season!

Katya said...

Haha that's an awesome little story :) Love your outfit and the pop of color the belt adds. I'm a new follower!

Love your boots/socks combo! That story's so funny, I heard a similar one but the question was 'What is bravery?' and they wrote 'This is bravery.' And left it at that! Who knows if it's true though xx

Katya said...

I think the message is what's so great about both of those stories. I doubt they're true, but, makes one wonder doesn't it :) xx

Katya said...

I *love* that site. It's hilarious and I admit: I have a small black book that I have been using since I was hired ten years ago that is filled with funny student stories. When I have a bad day I go in to look for a laugh :)

Katya said...

great outfit hun! love that LV scarf :)

Katya said...

Always a fan of all black! Can't go wrong. You look great!

Katya said...

I love the belted scarf look so much and the over-the-knee socks+boot combo is great as well!

Stylin' as always lady!'

BUT WOW, what an awesome story. Being a philosophy student this really made me smile :)

Katya said...

I thought that happened in my University! But it may have happened in yours! But I've definitely heard that before--somewhere in Canada, hey? ;)
How awesome, haha!
I love that.
I love your outfit girlie. I think I may try putting a belt around a scarf sometime soon. It looks so cute. Love your socks/boots. :D HOW YOU SO CUTE?
