River Island

The first time I saw scarf and leopard print combined was on a pair of River Island leggings. I’m not so much of a leggings fan so I decided to recreate the same feel with a skirt.

I was looking for my original inspiration photo and then came across this. Juliette from MAFFASHION can pretty much rock anything!

I Don’t Like Galaxy Print

Photobucket


I loved galaxy print last summer but now I’m over it. I bought this skirt in the mountain print from the Motel.com sale. They sent me this one for some reason and it’s funny because I had just tweeted about how I don’t like galaxy print anymore. But when I threw the skirt on with this top, it seemed to work.

This top was made to wear at my high school that starts at the ungodly hour of 7 am. I got it at dollskill.com when they were having their Friday the 13th sale.

These boots are more like a heel because they have absolutely no platform but they scream spring and I’m in ❤ with them.
PhotobucketMy sister bought this spike bracelet from eBay but it was too tight so she gave it to me (I love it when stuff like that happens). Apparently this style of bracelet is super popular. Kind of like the mini rainbow colored skull bead bracelets but those are hideous in my opinion. Oh and the YSL arty ring is a knock off because I couldn’t even tell the difference between some of the knockoffs and the real thing. I have never bought a knock off anything before because designers make quality items and that’s what you pay for, not the logo.

Tropicana

This skirt came with the ink a little smeared in some spots which was annoying but I love it so much that I had to keep it. Pencil skirts are totally my thing so when you mix that with a tropical print…HELLO RESORT-ESQUE SPRINGTIME SEXY. I find print on clothing sexy, I’m weird like that. Anywho, as you can tell I like pairing casual with not so casual so this whole tied up tee thing is my favorite lately. This tee is from Black Magic at UO. I feel like lots of brands are trying to do the whole high end trendy tee thing like UNIF and Wildfox. UNIF doesn’t come out with a lot of variety and Wildfox is slightly over priced in my opinion so I like how other brands are jumping on this bandwagon.

I got this necklace from Rocks Paper Metal on etsy after eyeing it for about a month. I was under the impression that the stones were colored and it would be high quality for the price that I paid. Turns out the stones are actually painted (which I could have very well done myself) and the cord came out this morning so I had to super glue it back. I talked about this store a couple of posts ago and if you’re thinking about picking yourself up some pieces, don’t say I didn’t warn ya.

On another negative note, these shoes gave me the gnarliest blisters ever today. But fashion hurts, right?
I chose these in black because they’re going to transition easily into the fall and winter. I am obsessed with studded loafers and, well, loafers in general. I searched for these babies online but I could never find my size. Same with the black and gold UNIFs so when I saw these at the Nordstrom in Santa Monica last weekend, I jumped on it. (Tip: if you’re looking to buy these online, stay true to your regular size if you want extra room to wear socks but size down 1/2 if you want them snug because they will eventually loosen up.)

Blue Fur

Colored fur. I love this stuff. I kind of ended up matching a lot today. I like how I can dress this floral skirt down with a retro, casual tee. I knotted the top instead of tucking it in because I feel like it gives it a punk feel which goes with the distressed nature of it. Plus, it’s sort of 90s which is all the rage. I’m still kind of in winter mode because it’s still pretty cold where I live. But I feel odd wearing completely winter pieces so I invested in colorful but cold weather friendly pieces.

Now I totally want to wear this outfit out to a punk rock concert instead of sitting in my room writing about the beautiful harmony of spring colors present in this look. Why does my town have to be so uneventful!? 


In other news, I will be visiting my future college next week. Should be interesting. I can’t believe I’m moving in a little over four months.

Found these celestial-esque earrings at asos; I’m totally in love with them even though I wish they were bigger.

Finally found a mid knuckle ring! The quality of this ring is impeccable I feel bad having to wearing the other crappy rings I own next to this piece of amazingness. I now get to channel Phoebe Buffet.

Black Leopard

Just received this UNIF coat in the mail from Nasty Gal and I absolutely hate it. The sleeves were made for someone with abnormally skinny arms. My arms are pretty skinny and literally, my blood circulation was cut off while wearing this which is such a shame because it’s fully lined and would’ve been so comfortable and warm. I would return it for a larger size but sales at Nasty Gal are final. Also, the jacket is asymmetrical and fits weirdly so that’s probably why the model is holding the collar in the photo, I presume.

I like the bright colors in the top and I obviously never let one piece dominate a look, so I paired it with my brightest skirt. This is as far as I go with the whole mixing prints trend. To be different, I put the python skinny belt super low.

I know, I know, I look like I’m sleep deprived or high on something when I’m not wearing black eyeliner. But I’ve gotten way too comfortable with dark make up and I’m trying to change that up for spring. I went a little eyeliner crazy today at Ulta and Sephora. I have a few ideas with what I can do with them so stay tuned for some weird stuff. I may try an Effie Trinket look, who knows. Photobucket
PhotobucketI recently got this top from Romwe and I love the colors, concept and drugged out facial expression on the black leopard but Romwe’s tops suck to be honest. First off, everything is one size. This isn’t a big deal for me for the most part but this top is over sized until it hits the bottom hem. The top tapers in and is super tight at the hem. It’s not just this top, it’s all of the chiffon and silk ones. I have bought two similar styles and both have had the same issue. This makes it hard to wear the top with pants and it loses all of it’s charm tucked in. I assume Romwe knows they have an issue because none of their chiffon or silk boxy tops are modeled. I may cut slits in the sides or something, but beware y’all.

Leather Skirt

I’ve been wearing pleated, leather skirts a lot lately. I feel like they dress up every top I pair with them. This skirt from Forever 21 is one of my favorites at the moment. I’m usually not very pro-Forever 21 but this skirt is pretty good quality.

I was drawn to this navy sweater at the LF store. It reminds me of something Spencer Hastings would wear.

This outfit is from today. I wore the skirt with a cropped velvet bustier style top, oversized pastel button down, mixed bracelets and gold necklaces.
