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!!

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!

A Belted Blazer Moment.

This is me making an effort to give you quality and consistent content! This is my first time shooting actual blog pictures in awhile and I’m so proud of myself for finally getting around to it! Just a forewarning, I start my classes this week so that might sometimes interfere with my posting but I promise I’ll try my absolute hardest! 

For this look I was inspired by Emannuelle Alt (The Editor in chief of Vogue Paris and one of my biggest fashion idols) because the belted blazer is basically her trademark look! There’s something about the sophistication of this combination that really drew me in. I thrifted this blazer because it reminds me so much of the high end versions I’m currently seeing everywhere and on everyone. It’s such a classic design that I just couldn’t resist! With the belt it just really gives you that perfect waist cinching vibe. Also, these new patent leather look sneakers from H&M reminded me why I love H&M so much in the first place: the best deals! I saw these in the store and immediately fell in love, and when I saw they were only $7 I was instantaneously attached! This is definitely one of my most Parisian inspired outfits I’ve worn recently, yet I wanted to add a little bit of my own flare so I threw on my vintage Levis 560s in black! And these sunglasses were purchased at a random yard sale and I was not supposed to buy anything that particular day, yet when I saw these I caved. They’re definitely a different style than I’m used to, but I love how unique yet effortless they are! Also how MAJOR are these pics?? Thank you Faith for making me look and feel so much better than I actually do! Have a great week and stay fab!

WIWW: J. Crew Picks

J. Crew is one of those stores that dreams are actually made of. I dream of their clothes so often that I’ve bookmarked their website on my browser. While I have yet to actually purchase one of their pieces, I do see myself buying something in the near future. Anyways, their overall aesthetic is simple and clean style, which is one of my goals for my blog’s aesthetic as well. Their eccentricity is extremely minimal, but has a noticeable aspect to it. Little things like sequins on a button up, gingham on gingham, or revamped 90’s white kicks have the effect of an overall chice evocation out of its customers. The pieces I’ve curated all have simple looks, and that’s a good way to start from somewhere you’ve never shopped from before. (Also did I mention they have an entire section of STRIPES) So check out my picks below and have a great week, and stay fab!!
