I GOT A PS1 AHHHHH!!! My 18th birthday is coming up, and Ive been wanting a PS1 for ages, so this was an early birthday present from my mom! I really love taupe handbags right now and this is large enough to fit everything I need for school… (which might change because I dont have to stuff an apple and cottage cheese in there like I did for those long days in high school)
I love this skirt so much (Ive worn it on the blog twice now) but if youre thinking about buying it, Id recommend getting the black. It’s dry clean only and unfortunately I got some food on it and decided itd be a good idea to wash it…oops. Ill send it off to the dry cleaners and hopefully they can take care of it.
My mom on this skirt: *concerned look* “Sonum make sure you don’t get caught on anything and hurt yourself!” Hahah…she cracks me up.
I’ve worn this lipstick in the past two blog posts–LOVE IT. It’s MAC’s “Chatterbox”. It’s not too light and definitely not magenta so it goes well with my skin tone making it my favorite pink shade (and it’s perfect for summer).
This top is from Nikki Lipstick (yay for independent designers!). I really love how punk and cute (mixing hard and soft people!) it is but it definitely turned some heads today and middle aged women stared at the shirt in awe (the bad kind). But hey, Im a fashion blogger not a people pleaser.
Extra Large “nude” PS1 aka THE LOVE OF MY LIFE:
Clear glitter nail polish on top of my natural nail. Everyones obsessed with nail art…so why not do the minimalist thing and keep your nails nearly bare?
Side note: trying to grow out my nails so I can try a cool nail deco place in NYC with *hopefully* my natural nails in an almond shape.

& I’ve been asked to also list the make up products I’m wearing:
Foundation-Benefit Oxygen Wow (works wonders for your skin!)
Powder-MAC Studio Fix
Brown Eyeliner Pencil (waterline)-MAC “Teddy”
Eyeshadows-MAC “Wedge” “Brun”
P.S. Wasn’t the lighting lovely in these photos? Took these at around 10:30 this morning.
I’ve been seeing a lot of photos on Tumblr of girls wearing “tikkas” (Indian headpieces) with Western clothing. I found this one lying around and decided to wear it with my punk, casual outfit.
I really love the Japanese Kawaii/deco style. I don’t want to take it that far, so here is a pink/cute/sweet/girly look for ya.
Finally debuting these puppies on the blog! I absolutely love this concept. I know that Charlotte Olympia has some like these, but they’re cats.
I came across Mr. Kate’s video of her experience at ES Nail on Melrose Ave. I think I might check out a salon like this while in NYC.

See what I did there with the title? Heheh. As a contrast to the crazy things I usually wear, I wanted to tone it down today. Both the top and the bottom are from Pins and Needles at Urban. I bought them both for $9.99 each but I found out later that the cami is $4.99 online. Urban has had some great pieces lately. Anywho, there were a ton of sales yesterday (Verameat, The Pokey Hat, Solestruck, and Motel Rocks) because apparently it was “national splurge day” which is something I’ve never even heard of…but hey, I’m not complaining!
I always feel the need to pair leopard with red so I went for this deep red lip. I used a lip stain by Smashbox in the color “sangria”. The stain itself is super drying and I was hoping it was more of a light tint but with the tinted lip balm, it’s actually a really nice lip color. Oh and my hair’s tucked into my blazer ’cause I’m super trendy and runway aware like that.
I picked up a few make up things while in Roseville the other day. I have Lime Crime’s “Cosmopop” but I’m not a fan of how it looks on my skin tone so I got this deeper tangerine shade by MAC called “Morange”. I also picked up another Hourglass liquid liner. I’ve tried so many liquid liners and this is definitely my favorite. It’s hard to use at first because it has such a fine tip but with practice it’s definitely worth it. The Bobbi Brown didn’t last me very long along with the Urban Decay and Kat Von D liquid liners. I like how this one has more of a matte finish and doesn’t flake. Lastly, I got MAC’s lip conditioner. I usually use Vaseline lip therapy but with lipsticks and stains, this Shea butter product is definitely a better choice.

P.S. I’m incredibly excited to get my hair done at the Butterfly Studio in NYC next month, I’m thinking about going a tad shorter.
Don’t mind the bizarre title, it’s the first word I thought of while looking at this top and skirt combination. Tying up t-shirts and wearing them with high waisted skirts is literally my summer uniform. It’s effortless yet still chic. These photos weren’t taken at my usual location because I had just gotten back from San Francisco and I wasn’t in the mood to get all elaborate. I didn’t even take the time to powder my nose *le sigh* summer has made me such a laggard.
I actually bought this skirt today. It’s funny because I usually never try things on at Urban Outfitters because I know my size but when I got home, I realized I have gone a size down thanks to Insanity. Also thanks to Insanity, I herniated a disc in my back so needless to say, I returned that nonsense. ANYWAYS, back to fashion. The tangerine color attracted me because it’s the color of 2012 of course, but also one of the colors of Pepperdine University, the college I will be attending this fall (only this fall, then USC for the rest, just to clear things up). I got a laptop bag in this same color.
I broke my promise with myself about Wildfox. I had decided I wouldn’t invest in such poorly made clothing but I have been wanting this top for ages. I like the swimsuit version as well, but it doesn’t seem too flattering. I noticed every store I checked was selling out of this top so when I found it at the Black Label Boutique online, I couldn’t help myself. Apparently the neons and pastels of spring are out and now it’s time to go for monochromatic white looks (according to Who What Wear). This isn’t anything new in my opinion, it’s the quintessential resort wear look. Wearing all white is something I will try out but I feel like stars such as Kim Kardashian or Olivia Palermo can’t be looked at for inspiration, because their take on the trend is far too aging for someone of my age.
I jumped on the Michael Kors gold watch bandwagon today. I love the way gold looks on my skin tone and I don’t really have a great watch, so this ended up being my graduation present from my mommy. I really love the white version but the rubber attracts dirt and the ceramic is way too heavy. #firstworldprobz
P.S. Sky blue nail polish is totally underrated. *valley girl voice* it’s hecka cute! #sarcasmintended

P.S. My legs look slightly orange on camera because my genius butt decided to spray tan my legs (Sephora brand self tanner)…My arms are white and my face is somewhere in between. Oodles of awkwardness.
