Cropped Grey & Black Denim.

Although it’s November, it’s somehow still plausible to wear a crop top out! I’ve found that crop tops are an ingenious way to take a simple outfit a little bit more over the edge. Crop tops are new and inventive and I’m infatuated with the looks they can create! I paired this DIY crop top with a great pair of black orange tabs that hug every last curve of the body! Levis are my favorite jeans not just because of their long and iconic legacy, but because they give the body of whoever wears them, a great definition and even sophistication! No matter what fit I’m wearing, I always feel my absolute best in a pair of Levi’s! I’m posting this because I will be too busy inhaling any food in my way to work post it later, so have a great thanksgiving to everyone! Stay fab!

In-N-Out-N-Levis 

Nothing screams fall like a shearling lined denim jacket. It’s my absolute favorite piece to transition from warm to cold! The fur lining is really just the ultimate fall fabric, and honestly I’d be lost without this jacket. Not only does it keep me extra toasty, but it pairs well with many types of pieces! One of my personal favorite pieces to match it with is (unsurprisingly) a pair of Levi’s jeans! The mixing of denims is something I may never grow tired of. There’s endless ways to style denim on denim, but also it’s a classic and chic combo to use when you’re in a rut! 

Also, I recently scored this In-N-Out burger tee shirt and I’m still swooning over it. I grabbed it not only because it’s super cute & soft, but it reminds me of my second home, California. It kind of depresses me because it makes me really miss everything about the place, but at the same time it makes me feel like I have a piece of Cali with me. I’m also trying to accessorize as much as possible this fall! I’ve recently found that it’s a chic way to add some more elements to my looks! This maroon croc skin handbag caught my eye at the thrift store because of the shape, but also because of the autumnal vibe it gives off! Have a great week and stay fab!

Classics x A Twist 

Recently I’ve tried to broaden my horizons in terms of fashion and try stuff that’s a little bit unconventional. I recently read an article about “dressing weird” in Vogue, and it really enlightened me! After reading the piece I tried to sit on the words I read and really apply them into my personal style. It touched on things like adding wacky accessories and mixing prints in order to add new elements to one’s personal style. I really resonated with the article because that is something I find myself attempting to apply in my own life. So thats where this outfit comes in, it’s a play on my own personal uniform. I absolutely adore a white tee and denim combo, and I’m currently adoring belts even more! The belt/corset trend is taking the world by storm and I am 100% on board! I love the cinched waist that it gives and the depth it can add to one’s body! Not only does it give the illusion of curves and definition, but it adds an element of enticement! I challenge my readers to try to be more fun and weird with your personal style once in awhile! Be fun and be yourself and it will always look A1! Have a great week and stay fab!

All Black like Bella.

One of my biggest fashion inspirations is the transcendent Bella Hadid! She has hands down one of the most eclectic and chic senses of style I’ve ever witnessed. With every outfit and every red carpet, she further proves to the world that’s she one bad ass bitch! Not only is her wardrobe refined and diverse, she also brings a certain level of sex and class to every single outfit. I absolutely love the way she finds new ways to style things that wouldn’t generally work together! For instance she basically pioneered the grand return of vintage Dior saddle bags! The girl has an incomparable fashion sense, and on top of that she is one of the most beautiful people on the planet! I figured she’d be the best person to channel this Halloween because she is just so risky and chic and that’s what I look for in a costume! I threw together this look on the fly and I have to say it turned out perfect! This vintage Gap blazer and these lace look pants were both thrifted finds that I will forever cherish! The blazer instantly caught my eye because 1. It’s vintage Gap!!! and 2. It’s classic and chic! I also thought that by adding a chic little black handbag, it would really take the Hadid vibe over the edge! Throw on some classic cons, a cropped white tee, and an eccentric yet interesting pair of sunglasses and BAM you’ve got yourself a Hadid approved fit! Have a great week and stay fab!!

Classic Camel & Black.

If you know me, you know I love a camel & black combo. I’ve always adored how well the two colors compliment each other, and also how many options there are with the pairing! I recently took a weekend trip to Albuquerque with two of my best friends, and while there I came upon this beauty of a sweater at a thrift store! It’s Banana Republic and it was $2!!! I absolutely had to, right? Anyways, I’m sooo in love with the way it pairs with my vintage faded black Levis 501s! The two were practically made for each other! Have a great week and stay fab!

Pinstriped.

The pinstripe is one of the most cherished prints in my wardrobe. I love how they can make me feel taller and even more sophisticated at times. It’s a very versatile print, yet sometimes it can be difficult to find the perfect complimentary piece. For this look, the complimentary piece is the silver shoes obvi! They’re also the statement piece, but they really compliment the pants exceptionally. Something as little as tying a knot in a tee can make an outfit that much more interesting. I love how something that small can completely morph my perpesticve on a look. Have a great week and stay fab!

Blue Jeans. 

A forever classic song by the transcendent Lana Del Rey, but also my absolute favorite thing to wear. I know I’m living my best life when I’m in denim. It’s just the most timeless piece and I’m just obsessed with playing with the shapes and washes etc. This top was such a score! The second I saw it I knew I was in love! It has a flannel-like material that almost resembles a sweater, but in tee shirt form! It’s a tad big on me but I would never dream of passing up anythimg vintage tommy!! Also, this jacket is a fave because it has a slightly cropped fit and it really just sits right on the body! All in all I OBSESSED! Have a great week and stay fab!!
