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!

The Carpenter Jean.

Ok but where the hell did September go??? It feels as if 2017 zipped by in a millisecond! Sometimes it blows my mind how fast time can fly! While it’s already October, things in Farmington are as bipolar as ever. In the day it’s hot and dry and at night it’s stormy and flooding! So at this point I’m just wearing whatever! 

Can we take a moment to not just appreciate but oogle over this amazing vintage Nike mock neck top! I scored this gem at my town’s Salvation Army and I’ve been counting down the seconds until it’s cold enough to wear this! And it’s finally beginning to cool down enough! Not only do I love the design itself but the sleeves are slightly balloon-y which I’m sooo obsessed with! It’s going to be my go-to this Fall/Winter! So, onto the real star of this post, I ordered these Topman jeans about a week and a half ago and I received them the other day after tracking it’s every move. They were a steal for only $17, but not only that they’re such a modern, cool fit and style that I absolutely couldn’t resist! I’ve seen the white stitching on black denim style around lately, so I’m glad I finally hopped on the trend! I like to take pieces that are trending and mix them with an older more classic piece like the Nike top! I think it adds some great defining layers to an outfit! Have a great week and stay fab!!

Back to Silk. 

Yes, it’s that silk shirt again! I honestly can’t help it sometimes, if a piece is really good I have to get a lot of use out of it! I believe that repeating pieces is nothing to be ashamed of, I think if you wear a piece once and never again after that, you’re not getting the full effect.

This particular shirt is one of my favorite pieces at the moment. It’s such a classic staple, but a little bit more elevated. I’d go as far to say that it’s the white button up I’ve been searching for my whole life! I love that in itself, it’s a statement piece that can be ever so versatile. Every time I wear these vintage Calvin Klein jeans I feel right at home. They’re soft, have a great fit, and hug me just right I’m all the right places! Incorporating soft pieces like a silk top with darker and edgier pieces like black ripped jeans or patent leather sneakers can really help elevate a simple outfit. Have a great week and stay fab!

LFW: My Favorite Collection

This LFW was one of the most optimistic and exciting I think in awhile. For the most part the designers showcased many fun collections as they usually do in London, but the one that stuck out the most for me was the upcoming designer Molly Goddard. Mollys big breakout into the fashion scene was when none other than Rihanna wore her lime green poofy tulle dress and took our breath away. On top of that, the picture of her holding a wine glass while in the dress went viral and was referenced in the show. Goddard did what she does best for her SS18 show, and that’s dresses. The collection was full of amazing new sillhouettes, textures, fabrics, and the colors were extraordinary. The models glided across the runway in intricately designed gowns paired with riding boots and some were even barefoot! What I loved most about the show was that Molly creates such unconventionally beautiful pieces and I think that’s why she’s resonating with the fashion world so much right now. I mean wait until you see the poofy crystal embellished dress, I DIED! I need to see Rih in that asap! Goddard’s designs are original and crafted expertly but they also bring a certain playful/childlike mood to fashion. Bravo Molly and congrats on another stunning collection! Stay fab!

NYFW: My Favorite Collection

One of my favorite things to write about is fashion shows. I love everything about fashion shows to be honest. I know what you’re thinking, “coming from someone who’s never even been to a real fashion show” yes you’re correct, but I don’t feel I have to physically be there to give my input on a collection. In today’s world one can simply pull out their phone and type two words and immediately be inside a New York fashion show.

 Anyways, this season, the designers put out some extremely eclectic collections that really switched things up. We saw many new silhouettes, shapes, colors, and pattern plays etc. My personal favorite was mr Prabal Gurung’s S/S collection. Prabal is most definitely one of the most beloved shows of NYFW because of his never ending sense of wonder and innovation. His designs are constantly sleek and sophisticated but with a little hint of feminity and power. With his collection prior being one of the most talked about of the season, the fashion world was genuinely dreaming of what he’d come up with next. The slogan tees of his February show truly shook up the fashion world for the better. This season Gurung took shapes to a whole new level with things like corset/blazer hybrids and even corset/topcoat hybrids that are truly a sight to see. Once again we see a hint of menswear inspired pieces and I’m obsessed. Not only were his shapes expertly executed, but the colors and prints he presented were sublime. Also can we talk about those sunglasses!! I need them in every color asap! Dainty sunglasses are still having a moment and honestly I don’t ever want to see the trend disappear! It’s such an easy and modern way to elevate an outfit. 

Also, Gurung’s casting has been spot on as of recently. The otherworldly beauties Ashley Graham and Candice Huffine were among the many diversely elegant girls to walk the show. The fashion world will forever be indebted to Gurung for his never ending sense of optimism and diversity. He’s a spokesperson for feminism and female empowerment all around! And what better way to end an already exceptional show than with the incomparable Gigi Hadid in quite possibly the most show stopping red dress of this NYFW season! The shape and silly outside were practically created for Hadid herself! She brought new life to the 💃 dancing girl and I’m all for it! Bravo Prabal I absolutely adored the collection!

19th 

Somehow I made it to 19, but don’t ask me how because I haven’t the slightest of guesses. Nevertheless, I am absolutely thrilled to be 19 even though I still feel like the same uncoordinated, scruffy, and chronically late teenager. I don’t really know what’s gonna be different this time around (as far as my age goes) but I can tell you this, I welcome 19 with an open mind and heart and I’m hoping that I can grow in many ways than one. I want to set some goals for myself but honestly I don’t know if I’ll ever get around to it what with all the homework I’ve neglected. 

So about the outfit, for my big day I wanted to sport a look that was both glamorous with a hint of me. And that’s exactly what I achieved. Every piece cooperates exceptionally to create one amazing look that I’m so satisfied with. Lace and denim is having a moment and I am no exception to the trend. There’s something about the delicacy of lace paired with classic quality denim that really gets me going! My silver Docs are the absolute perfect statement shoe to pull the whole look together and honestly can I just say I’m 100% obsessed with this fit! Have a great week and stay fab! And thank you to everyone for the warm birthday wishes & love you sent out! ❤️

A Silk Spell.

It seems I’ve been under some sort of spell lately, and it makes me only want to buy shirts that are silk? I don’t know if that’s logical but I’m gonna go with it because I love me some silk. This shirt is one of my favorites to date because it’s so simple yet chic. I love how well it pairs with my 501s so that’s a major plus! Have a great weekend and stay fab!
