As of late, I’ve been wearing whatever is convenient and comfortable. Surprising, I know. It’s just that time of the year with classes and what not. I’m so ready for the semester to be over, my goodness. 
This UNIF dress doesn’t have much shape so I use it as a sort of kimono instead.
I’m really loving all of the Civil Clothing pieces from their fall collection and I was lucky enough to be sent some pieces from their new collection, “Dare to Be Different” which is going to be released on December 2nd. Their muscle tees are simple and effortless. You can throw one on before running out the door and you’re rep-ing an awesome brand. 

If you’re in Los Angeles on November 30th, head to the Civil Clothing Warehouse Sale.
23510 Telo Ave. Unit 2 Torrance, CA 90505

Casual school look. If I wanted to dress it up a bit more, I would’ve added an oxblood lip (MAC’s “Diva”) and a chunky necklace.

Obsessed with this punk-esque Yeezus shirt designed by Kanye West. 
Surprisingly, I really like Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s PacSun collection. Kylie’s style is right up my alley. I bought this shirt after I saw a photo of her donning a similar one.

I’m excited about dressing for fall but unfortunately Los Angeles isn’t havin’ the whole cold weather thing. Like…give me overcast…something to work with cmonnnn. 
Anywho, here is a list of items that my fall wardrobe is/will be inundated with:
-oxblood (duh)
-forest green
-cable knit sweaters (American Apparel)
-midi skirts (TOPSHOP & asos)
-gingham print
-boyfriend jeans
-matching crop tops + bottoms
-mesh/jersey tops
-over sized coats (duh x2)
-off the shoulder body-con dresses (quite specific, I know –> Nasty Gal) 
-t-shirt dresses (as depicted in today’s outfit)


Saturday Nights

 This is a quintessential going out outfit for me. Something chic and classy put with a punk edge. Yesterday I had this epiphany that I really don’t like structured blog posts, YouTube videos, etc. I post when I feel inspired and that may not be every week or sometimes it might be five times in one week. I get that that isn’t professional but that’s precisely why I started my own personal blog.

As you can tell I still love mesh. I’m on the lookout for something like this but in white so I can attempt to channel Givenchy A/W 2011. I would live in that collection if I could. I’d wear it everywhere, school, the gym, etc…
Yay for awkward facial expressions! My sister likes to see if she can make me laugh while taking photos of me. Oh and I decided to do the stereotypical blogger jacket pose with it thrown over my shoulders. Pretty awkward and uncomfortable if you ask me!

Black Out

I’ve been deeply drawn to black and dark hues of purple lately for no distinguishable reason.

I was asked about the trends at the moment, and this is my take.

Cropped Flares

 Cropped flares are great because you dont have to wear them with wedges or heels. 
 I dont know if Im feeling the whole half turban half beanie thing I have going on, it doesnt really fit correctly because the material is too thick. I picked up this sweater on sale at Zara for $20. I was immediately attracted to it because it reminded me of Beetlejuice. (I ordered the Beetlejuice collection from Models Own about three weeks ago and Im still waiting for it to get here.)

 These platform moto ankle boots are super versatile.
 Dip dyed my hair gray! We added a lilac dye too but my hair didnt pick up the color. If youre a brunette like me, I definitely recommend going to a professional to dip dye your hair. Working with an extensive amount of bleach by yourself is very risky.

These cropped flares are at ASOS for about $25 right now. They can be paired with just about anything but my favorite tops this winter are boxy sweaters. Theyre super effortless and comfortable. They also look good on all body types. 
Ive also been into hardware for a while now. Im still on the look out for a neck cuff/collar but Nelly is the only place that makes them. Im sure stores in the US will catch on soon enough!
I love the Steve Madden “Madee”. I recall there being a studded, black leather one but I guess it’s out of stock. The leopard and royal blue ones add a pop of color to these overall simple looks. 


I’m waiting on that fall weather

Pretty toned down look minus the orange striped socks. 

I love the weird looks I get from my neighbors while taking photos of myself.

I’m in love with bolo ties as of late.

Autumn Tones

Elizabethan, gothic inspired outfit. I like the whole bustier look. I had said I really wanted the emerald accordion skirt from American Apparel; this one’s my sister’s. 

Pixlr is my new favorite editor (not including Photoshop). To go with the muted, autumn palette, I added the glamor glow filter and messed around with layers.
We had our first thunderstorm yesterday. I’m ready for fall!

I feel like I belong at Oktoberfest with this fall inspired outfit.

This is another one of my headdresses. The muted color palette goes hand in hand with fall and the bright flowers are the center of attention.

Not going to lie, this feather earring really hurts after a while!

I cannot even tell you how much I love this crochet skirt. I paired it with a black body con skirt underneath. Body con skirts are super versatile and useful, they can go under all of your sheer maxi’s.

This year, Im in journalism and Im trying to convince my teacher to let me have a fashion section in the newspaper. Im pretty excited about that!
