Some days it is quite the task to put together an outfit that I deem both chic and comfortable enough. There are many factors that go into deciding this, but the most important thing I look for in a great outfit is the way it makes me feel. Outfits like a t shirt and jeans make me feel calm and collected, while looks like this one that are a bit more “glitz-y” make me feel sexy and confident. I love incorporating standout pieces like this sparkly cardigan with classic ones like vintage Levis shorts because it’s a great contrast to add to any type of look. This is definitely a look I could wear over and over again! Have a great weekend and stay fab!

I’ll be on my way to California by morning, so I figured a quick post wouldn’t hurt! I am absolutely 100% infatuated with this Vintage Dior knit that I scored awhile back! It is one of those rare finds that reminds you why you thrift/vintage shop in the first place! I’m very glad I found one in black because it’s so easy to style and pair with! Obviously I chose my classic and most favorite pair of Levis 501s to give a 90’s vibe to the look. To continue the 90’s vibe, I threw on these insane vintage New Balances I thrifted. They’re my $6 version of the Balenciaga Triple S and I couldn’t be more in love! Have a great weekend and make sure to stay tuned for all my Cali antics & looks! Stay fab!!

Every now and then I come across a piece that I fall head over heels in love with, and then proceed to wear consistently after. This top is one of those pieces. When I saw it I was instantly reminded of a Céline top from a few seasons back. It was not cropped when I purchased it but I wanted to make it more summer appropriate! Tops like this are so much fun to style because there truly is countless options of what to pair it with, which makes getting dressed a whole lot smoother. I wore this look to my moms graduation so I added the super high waisted, grey plaid trousers to dress it up a bit. My snakeskin Urban Outfitters boots were the obvious choice of footwear because they add a more original, unique flare to any outfit! I’m also dying over the rounded, rectangular shape of these sunnies! It’s a fresh and modern shape of eyewear that I have been dying to try! I’m getting ready to leave for California to celebrate my mom getting her masters and I am so excited to shoot and share content from my favorite place on earth! Make sure to stay tuned! Have a great week and stay fab!
My long search for the perfect white jean has finally concluded!! White denim is such a versatile and timeless wardrobe staple and I feel like I jumped on the bandwagon a bit late, but better late than never right?! These are vintage Wranglers that I thrifted the other day and they’re honestly so beautiful to just look at. A beautiful stark white wash, vintage fit, and noticeably made with expert craftsmanship! All of those things are what I was searching for in a white jean, and I’m finally victorious! I knew the second I got these that I wanted to pair them with my snakeskin boots! They’re obviously my new favorite shoe, but not only that, white and snakeskin are insanely complimentary to one another! I hope everyone has a wonderful week and as always…stay fab!
As I write this, I lay in bed wide awake with no hope of sleep anytime soon. It just so happens that it’s also Christmas Day as of an hour ago my time, and honestly that blows my fucking mind. I have no recollection of 2017 but all I know is that it drained me. Not only was it personally draining, but as a world & a human race, it was especially draining. My mind is currently racing with thoughts of what I’ll be opening tomorrow and there’s also an ongoing battle of whether Rey is Luke Skywalker’s daughter or not?!?!
This outfit is a prime example of my uniform this winter. A comfy turtleneck, even comfier denim, and even comfier slip ons! Can you tell I’m all about comfort for winter? Living in a desert, when we experience a season, we experience a season. We get all that the season has to offer, so obviously that means when it’s cold, it’s COLD! Because it’s so cold, my instinct is to automatically reach for my comfortable and minimal pieces. Also, I love tucking long sleeves into vintage denim because it gives me the ultimate 90’s vibe that I’m flat out infatuated with. Add some croc skin slip ons and you’ve got a comfy, yet ultra chic winter fit! Have an extraordinary Christmas and an even better rest of your break! And always stay fab!
This holiday season, I’m trying to incorporate fresh and unique pieces into my looks because I’m in the process of rediscovering my personal style. Don’t ask why or how I came up with that, but I did and I’m stickin to it!
My personal style has always been very trendy, but uniquely me, and I love that! It’s just that I want more from my personal style. I want to feel like a showstopper on a daily basis! I scroll through my Instagram feed and I see women & men who are unashamedly themselves in terms of their personal style. Sometimes I feel like I get too caught up in what everyone would say or how on trend something is, and my outfit ends up becoming no longer for me, but for everybody else. I want my personal style to be 100% fully & truly….me. I don’t want to dress for others, I want to dress because it’s what I love and what brings me the most happiness. So, what “rediscovering your personal style” looks like for me, is attempting to morph my own personal style by looking at it in a completely different fashion. I’m tired of thinking about if something matches or not or if people will compliment my look, I just want to feel good in what I’m wearing. Who gives a fuck if my shades of green don’t match, I’m wearing them & you’re not. I’m all for people being wacky and fun with fashion. In fact, it’s recently become a major obsession of mine. I’m so infatuated with the people I follow in the fashion industry because they all are so distinct in their own ways. Think of it this way, you would never catch Leandra Medine & Caroline Vreeland wearing the same thing. They’re two different & amazing women with killer senses of style & their differences are what makes them, them.
This outfit is the first step of my process of rediscovering my personal style. It’s simple, with little intricate details. For instance I used a knit sweater instead of a plain black long sleeve because it adds little yet impactful details. Also, matching the silver metallic shoes with the western belt was a last minute detail that really hit home with me. I felt fulfilled when wearing this because I was warm, comfortable, and let’s be honest I look hella chic. Have a great week, and stay fab!
I’m such a sucker for a classic staple piece. I lose all control when I see a white tee, plain jeans, or even a plain blazer! When I first began to love fashion, I had no clue what I was doing, but I knew that starting with staple pieces was a good way to begin! So I rounded up some of the more classic/minimal pieces in my closet and now 4 years later here I am wearing the same stuff (but on a higher & better level)!
To me, the classics that will never go out of style are things like white tees, Vintage levis, a classic black & white sneaker, and even western belts! These are all such amazing pieces alone, but when paired together, it can be the most glorious of pairings possibly ever! However, I think that being fun and weird with fashion is a great thing, and that everyone should try being adventurous at times. That being said, sometimes I don’t have the energy, and a tee and jeans is all that I feel comfortable in and that’s %100 ok! So, these jeans were recently Thrifted and I am sooooo ecstatic over them! They are the perfect light wash, Vintage Levi 501 that I’ve been searching for for a very long time! I’ve wanted a pair just like these for so long, I just never had the money to afforded the amazing/high quality pairs that I want! So that’s why these are so amazing, they’re exactly what I’ve wanted, and I only paid $1 for them!!! I think these are a pair of jeans that everyone should own! They’re classic, comfortable, and SO CHIC I CANT EVEN! Thanks for reading my ramble, have a great week and stay fab!
