Converse

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!

Denim Hues.

My favorite aspect of this denim jacket from H&M is the actual fit of it. I love how it has a military vibe that kind of elevates a simple outfit. When I pair it with denim, I don’t really care what wash my jeans are because the jacket is the perfect wash of denim that is super easy to work with. I haven’t pulled out my white converse in a long time, but I figured it would add a little classic touch to this look! I’m also sooooo head over heels for the tiny sunglasses trend. I honestly didn’t think it would last as long as it has, but I’m crazy happy that it has! I think it’s a very new and fresh way to really elevate any type of outfit! Have a great week and stay fab!

Twist.

Lately I’ve been really immersing myself in all things fashion in hopes of gaining some new tips and tricks to elevate outfits. I’ve been nonstop searching through fashion accounts, magazines, blogs, editorials, and even just through Tumblr and I have to say I’ve found quite a few great new ideas. One of those great ideas, was how to style a white button up 8 different ways from the amazing Aimee Song of Song Of Style! I absolutely loved how she took a simple piece like a white button up and completely manipulated it to her advantage and created 8 on point looks. The specific way I loved was tying it and pairing it with classic denim, so that’s exactly what I did! I chose a longer denim short than I usually would because I wanted this outfit to have a heavy 90’s vibe to it. There’s nothing I love more than the way that white & denim look when they’re paired together. Also, I’ve been trying to incorporate pieces in my wardrobe that I feel I don’t wear enough so that explains why I’m wearing my Converse for the first time in ages! Have a great week and stay fab!!!

The 4th Fit.

HI!!! My biggest apologies for being so absent in my posting. So far my summer has been incredibly hectic and I just haven’t found the time to post, but obviously I’m attempting to change that! 

This year I went on another intense camping trip to Telluride, CO with my two best friends. We had a insanely exciting time because none of us are really nature people, but we still made the absolute best of it. On the actual 4th of July we went into town, explored, ate a ton of pizza, and walked until our feet ached. I chose an outfit inspired by one of my many fashion role models, Gigi Hadid. I saw her wearing a look exactly like this a few days before I left and I immediately knew I had to wear it. On another note, let me tell you about my new favorite jacket in my collection. I discovered this denim jacket at a yard sale a few weeks ago and I’ve never been more in love with a piece at first sight. It’s the jacket of my denim dreams and I’m so glad I happened to stop at that particular sale. I paired it with a thrifted DIY cropped red tee, a pair of my favorite 505’s and my classic white cons of course! I’m also very into white accessories as of late. Something about the crisp-ness of white makes me weak when shopping for accessories. These glasses and this belt have been on constant rotation lately and I don’t intend to stop anytime soon! Have a great week and stay fab!

Cali Diaries Day 3: Disney Day 2 

In my family, one day of Disney is never enough. We have to go at least two days to get our full fix. So for the second day I chose an outfit that was equally as simple as the day prior, but still had a little bit of an elevated edge to it. I chose the same Levis 550s from our day to Hollywood and paired them with my new H&M tee from their all unisex line. If it isn’t already obvious, the elevated piece in this look is the mock neck style of the white tee. And  let me just say that I admired H&M before but after this collection was released I knew that this was my favorite store for a reason. Any brand that would throw caution to the wind and release a collection knowing it would cause controversy and backlash is so wonderful to me. So props to everyone responsible for the Uni Collection! Have a great weekend and stay fab!

Back to Black.

Not only is the Beyonce & Andre 300 version of this song my current fav, but that phrase is very relevant to my current fashion mood. I’ve been finding myself gravitating towards the darker clothes in my wardrobe. It’s probably not the smartest idea considering it’s almost summer, but I’m rolling with it! I’m head over heels for these Levis I got from a yard sale. I love mixing different textures and shades like faded black with velvet. Have a great week and stay fab!
