Prison Dress

I call this my prison dress because it totally looks like a prison jumpsuit but I like it!  I even have a necklace with keys lol:)

It's actually a real wrap dress rather than a mock one which is nice because you can tie it to fit.  They are hard to find nowadays... everyone is making mock wrap dresses even Dian Von Furstenburg who invented the wrap dress!

I thought it could use some color so I added a multicolored headband and blue Converse.  I've never had Converse before but I wanted some because I see them everywhere.  I didn't really like them when I was younger but I like to experiment more with fashion now.  They are definitely growing on me.  I also used to hate floral patterns when I was younger so people do change.  Life changes too-for the better.<3

#FAME

I love fashion with words and sayings.  I've seen them on bracelets, earrings, necklaces, shirts and just everywhere. Some popular ones are #I woke up like this and #You can't sit with us from Mean Girls. And then of course they then have the opposite sayings...#You didn't wake up like that and #You can sit with us (for anti-bullying).  The word trend started last year in 2014 and is still going strong!

Loose flowy dresses like this are either a hit or miss for me.  It depends on the fabric.  I'm kind of chesty so if the material is too thick and stiff it just hangs on me like a tent for the maternity look.  This fabric is soft and thin enough to give me a little more shape but it is still that loose flowy style I have to get used to.  I glamed it up with blue, silver and gold but this dress would also look very good with some bohemian accessories.  Just add some brown booties or combat boots, put a flower headband in your hair and get ready to go wherever you want to go;)<3

Casual Class

Neon yellow really pops against black!

Naudical, casual and classy;)

With this post I wanted to show you that you can be casual and comfortable wearing flats but still have class.

A black romper is a must have for every closet because it is so trendy yet versatile. Just add a colorful scarf, belt or jewelry to mix it up and make it more interesting.

Stripes are classic and another must have. A statement necklace or pendant makes them less casual and more classy.  Yes the theme of the day is classy;).  

However, the most important thing is to dress how you feel. Don't dress yourself based on what others think.  When you feel comfortable and confident it shows in everything you do.  Try it out.  Live a little<3

#Like so Familiar

I got my outfit idea today from Js Everyday Fashion.  She called her post familiar so I called mine #like so familiar because I realized I had basically all the same pieces in my closet already!

Military and especially plaid are trendy right now so this is a great look for transitioning into fall.  White jeans are also a closet staple you can now wear at any time of the year:).

I've been obsessed with plaid lately.  Don't ask me how many of those shirts I have lol!;).

One thing I've learned from J is that it's ok to copy people's outfits.  After all isn't imitation the sincerest form of flattery?<3

 

 

 

Heavenly Blue

My favorite color!;)

My favorite color!;)

So obviously I like blue.  It's always been my favorite color ever since I was a child. The thing is that when you start to shop as much as I do things start to match unintentionally because they only make so many colors lol!!;). 

A momochromatic look can be stunning and simple.  I especially like the cut-outs in the side of the dress because they are cool for summer and sexy in a subtle kind of way:). I look forward to making more monochromatic looks in the future!<3

White Khaki and Floral

Everyone needs some good basics like crisp white shirts and khacki shorts.  They might not be as exciting to buy as something with a colorful floral print but they allow you to wear the exciting pieces while still looking grounded in reality;).  It's like buying beautiful paints and fabrics but no canvas to put them all.  It's not a rule just an idea.  Fashion, like life, should have no rules.  It should be beautiful because you created it.

Hello World!;)

Silver sandals with military and a black and white striped dress

I live in Orange County but am going to to UCLA 3x a week to learn a few things:). Today's my first day so I wanted some serious street style.

Everyone's been wearing Birkinstocks or those Birkinstock like sandals so I got myself a pair at H&M.  Fashion right now is in it's ugly casual/cute phase.  Things that used to be really unfashionable like Birkinstocks with everything are now high fashion.  I even went into Brandy<3Melville and saw a shirt with pinholes in it on purpose.  Just goes to show how much fashion changes.

I think of our millenial generation fashion as lazy girl fashion (no offense anyone!;). We wear heavily distressed denim, soft oversized flannels, and tops that only come in one size.  And then there's always Converse, Uggs and Rainbows for shoes.  I guess we just want to be cool and look good naturally.  Hence the immensly popular t-shirt saying "I woke up like this" lol!;) 

 

Summer tropical nails with gold pointer fingers!;)

Summer tropical nails with gold pointer fingers!;)

So yesterday I got my first gel manicure ever at Happy Nails at the Irvine Spectrum Center!  I'm very pleased with the results and love the color.  What's great about them is that they dry immediately and last until your nail grows out too much or the gels fall off.  The estimated time is two weeks before you have to get them redone.  I'll let you know how they work out. Why would people get regular polish ever again?

Also I've noticed that people used to paint their ring finger a different color than the rest of the fingers.  Now people are painting their pointer finger a different color so I tried it out and liked it.  Hope you liked this lost.  Have fun fashion hunting!;) LKR<3

Back to School Plaids

I'm coming back to blogging!  It's been a while I've been trying to get my life together.  Anyways I'm sure you all have your opinions about leggings with pants...:). I happen to like them as long as the shirt is a little longer than usual to cover up!  I was at the Irvine Spectrum Center and saw about every other person wearing a plaid shirt so I decided to get one.  (Not that I didn't have one lol!;). Red is especially popular and eye catching so get on the bandwagon!  Just make sure the buttons don't gap because that's a sure way to tell the shirts too small.  Enjoy the rest of your summer everyone!<3

Floral Freedom

I'm just learning to post from my phone which is pretty cool!  It makes life a lot simpler and easier.  Life really isn't that complicated if you stay authentic to your values and who you are.  Breaking away from people's expectations is the only way you will be set free.

Happy Birthday!

So today's my 21st birthday!  I know it's a very colorful cake:)  I found the crop top and skirt on sale at Nordstrom Rack.  I love shopping there.  I've found lot's of really great clothes for under $10 on their sale rack.  They have a wide pricing range depending on the designer so there is something there for everyone!

When you wear a skirt with some structure, like the one in the picture, it helps to give you an hourglass figure and because it sits on the waist and flares out. As for the top I'm someone who usually avoids buying boxy cut shirts.  They sit on my chest and make me look really wide. Suprisingly though this one works.  It works because it's a crop top and the skirt sits on the waist so it's defined.  So the boxy top now helps create the hourglass figure instead of covering it up.  And of course you should always add a statement necklace.  I find I use my silver and gold ones the most.

Take a chance on something you wouldn't usually wear.  You might like it:)

Francesca's Interview

So I have my Francesca's interview today!  If you've never heard of them they're this cute little boutique store with locations all across the country.  Check out they're website here.

I think plain black suits are kind of boring so I decided to wear basic business wear with a little bit of added flair:)  Try adding color to basic black and white for added interest.  Plus the color will pop against the neutral background!

Tip of the day:

When dressing for interviews remember to dress for the job you want.  If you're trying to get a job in accounting you might want to pull out that plain white button down with a black suit and pumps.  If you're trying to get a job in retail take a look at what kinds of things the company sells before your interview and try to be a professional reflection of that.

For example Francesca's sells trendy, colorful, and modern clothes with a bohemian vibe to them.  So I decided to dress professionally but made sure to add some color and personality:)

Good luck on job hunting everyone!<3
