Over-all of it

blog3

I think I have always been afraid of wearing overalls. They either looked too country, too 90’s, (the bad side of the 90’s) or just not my style. I never thought I could pull them off! BUT things have changed. I was looking online, and all of a sudden I saw overalls in a new light. I don’t know what changed, but now I’m all, I could wear them with the right styling! They can fit into my wardrobe! Luckily, my sister found these for me and now I’m in love. I think my message as a blogger is that anyone can wear what they want as long as they wear it with confidence. And I definitely need confidence to pull off wearing overalls!

These are Mossimo, so they were pretty inexpensive! I paired them with a Forever 21 t-shirt and shoes. I love the detail of the collar and sleeves because it makes it not just a basic tee.

Denim on Denim

Happy Spring! I’m excited about the new trends coming up this season, and I have been working hard on my Youtube videos, so I hope you have been watching! A trend I love this season is wearing denim on denim. The spring is the most appropriate time to wear denim on denim because it looks the best! No more boots, and no more bulky coats and scarves! (If you even had a winter where you live.)

Anyway here are some of my favorite looks, these people have done denim right!

Thrift Shopping

I haven’t actually blogged in forever. I know, it’s horrible – but I’ve been doing a lot of other good, productive things. Mostly I’m working on YouTube, and I’m loving it. I want to use this as my outlet for writing about fashion, and mentioning topics that are on my channel.

So this week I went thrift shopping. It was sort of a challenge for myself, I wanted to see if I could create cute outfits based off of thrifted pieces. I would consider it a success! The Goodwill I went to is amazing. It had so much stuff!

So here is what I ended up buying:

This blazer is a few sizes too big, and it had ridiculous shoulder pads, but I cut those out and am wearing it as an oversized, slouchy look with a romper.

The jumpsuit was thrifted, and I put it together with some clothes I already had to create a night out look. I felt very Miami.

This sweater is so comfortable! I threw it on with some skinny jeans and it looks way more expensive than the actual price.

This dress was only about $3, and it fits perfectly! I paired it with a shirt for a more grunge effect. I can’t wait to wear it in the summer too.

Hopefully this will inspire you to check out more thrift stores! Sometimes the best pieces are found there.

Met Gala 2013

The Met Gala was a few days ago, and I’m so excited to post about it. Lately I haven’t been excited about any red carpets. The Oscars weren’t even good! People have not been dressing their best and I have been so disappointed and just bored with everyone’s outfits. The Met Gala let all the people I love redeem themselves and they did! I was so happy as I scrolled through these amazing outfits. I think this is the best my favorite celebrities and style icons have looked in a long time. Here are my favorites!

Anne Hathaway actually looked great. (I usually don’t like her outfits) But she looks so cool and edgy in Valentino.

I am absolutely in love with Nicole Richie in this look by Topshop. She looks so fantastic. My favorite.

I usually don’t care about Taylor Swift on the red carpet, but she looked so good! In J. Mendel

Who was your favorite? I think they really took the opening of Punk: Chaos to Couture and put it into their fashion. I love that style, so this was the best red carpet I’ve seen in a while.

A Winter Sunburn

013a 014a 016a 018a

It’s very warm today. I don’t know why I always talk about the weather on here, I’m trying to make small talk with you I guess. When I say warm, I mean it reached the 50’s today and that’s pretty crazy considering two states over is a blizzard. I thought since I had time today I would post. I’ve been very busy and have some exciting stuff going on in my life right now! This outfit was inspired by Kenley Collins. I love her clothes! Check her out! I hope you are all having a great week, and happy Friday!

Wildfox Couture

I just found Wildfox by some miracle on the internet, and now I’m obsessed. I don’t actually know why I’m into it so much, because it’s not typically what I gravitate to, but I just love everything about this brand. The clothes are very pastel/edgy. I especially love the ads, they are like modern Marie Antoinette. On my very specific Christmas list, I included “Anything Wildfox,” because I don’t think I can afford it on my own. (Insert sad face here) (Insert your pity for my broketeenageawfulfashionbloggingskillz) Anyway, I love love love Wildfox Couture.
