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.

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.

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!

DIY: Dip Dye Hair

I’m so excited right now because I just dyed my hair! I have never done it before, and I dyed the ends “dip-dye” style at home. I wanted to share a little how-to so if any of you want to try, you can!

First, here’s what you need:
20120915-173838.jpg
Towel and tshirt you don’t care about
Creme developer (I used Salon Care 20 volume)
Powder lightener (I used PrismLites)
Color dye of your choice
An applicator or comb
Plastic bowl
Gloves

Step 1: section your hair to the length you want it

Step 2: mix 1 packet of the powder with 2 ounces of the creme developer, mix until it’s like icing. Wear your gloves!

Step 3: spread the mixture through hair, making sure to cover inside and out, then wrap up in grocery bag and set it for 40 minutes (or as long as the directions on your bleach say)

Step 4: rinse out the bleach with warm water, and condition. Let it completely dry. It should look like this, or lighter.

Step 5: put color in, covering the blonde area. It’s ok if you get some on the not bleached parts, it won’t hold the color if your hair is dark. Wrap up in bag and wait as long as your dye directions say.

Step 6: rinse out and put more conditioner in. This is how mine turned out!

Also, if you can, get someone to help you. It’s a lot easier if you do. Thanks to my lovely father who helped me!
