Welcome to With Love, Banke! I hope that you enjoy my posts.





Today had to have been the longest day in the history of the longest days. I woke up around 8 AM, went to Long Beach around 10 and didn't get back home till I'd say around 9 pm. I regretted creeping on Instagram in the early morning because it left me phone-less for the rest of the day and as I write this post, my phone is still dead and I honestly have no clue where I put it-ha! Go figure. 

On the bright-side of my never ending day, I was able to get a lot of things done today--I wrote a list or what I would consider, a scroll of tasks that need to be completed before i'm shipped off to UCLA for graduate school. Get things for my apartment, get contacts, read for leisure (something that I haven't been able to do in YEARS) etc, etc. Crazy how I begin soo late when all of my fellow peers have already began their journey of graduate school but hey, I'm not complaining, I was in DIRE need of a break.

As usual, I'm again late on the Phillip Lim 3.1 x Target collection. Forgive me, when you're in school, you tend to not keep up with what's trendy or new. I can't believe his collection for Target came out in 2013! I really think I'm going to buy all of his pieces. I swear, whenever Target does a collaboration with a known fashion designer, the pieces sell out within a week and here's me the troll who waits and waits until it's on eBay :) because I don't like crowds.

What I really like about this leopard dress is that it's very how do I say, unique? No, that's not the word....chic! Depending on how it's styled, it can be worn to the club if you live in Los Angeles, it's suitable for Greystone or The Standard or a dinner/date with your significant other in a trendy upscale restaurant. You'll definitely have a lot of eyes on you...in a good way :)

I decided not to showcase shoes for this post I wanted to leave it up to the readers imagination on the styling of the shoes :).
