This spring I’m jumping head first into a season of denim. It’s currently the biggest part of my wardrobe & the way I put together looks. The key to any killer look is to begin with a base, and for me my base is always denim. Basically I select one pair from my collection and decide the rest of my outfit based on those jeans. It helps me to organize my thoughts and speed up the process a bit. Don’t get me wrong, I’m fully aware that eventually my jeans will have no place being worn due to the excessive heat and dryness where I live. But, nothing, and I mean nothing stops me from slipping into a good pair of jeans. Also I’m dying over the oval shades trend, you guys know I’m not much of a sunglasses person, but I couldn’t resist these bad boys! Have a great week and stay fab!
Recently I went to Durango, CO for some lunch and downtime with my family, and I figured it was a good time to pull this ginormous button up I purchased from a thrift store awhile back. I’ve been extremely hesitant to wear it out because of how large it is and how it basically swallows me. Nevertheless, I love the color and I knew it would add an edgier element to my already simple outfit. Adding oversized pieces to any outfit can be tricky because it can seem a little out there for some people. But my biggest piece of advice when wearing oversized pieces, is to just let go and completely disregard any thought of what someone might say or think about it. Have a great weekend and stay fab!!
For the past year I’ve been absolutely infatuated with all things thrifted. What started out as me just browsing while I happened to be in a thrift store, turned into an all out love affair. I find that thrifting clothes can be almost therapeutic at times because you’re browsing through clothes that have a story and a past. You’re not just buying a piece of clothing, you’re adding to its story.
To those who’ve never thrifted or are too afraid to try it, I urge you to either suck it up or get off your damn high horse because there’s nothing mediocre about thrifting. Sometimes I’ll come across a piece and envision myself or my best friend wearing it and it completely changes whatever mood I’m in. Another tip for those starting out, bring a friend! Sometimes thrift stores can be a little run down and sketchy but that only makes the experience better. But if you insist, bringing a friend is always a good idea because I know from experience that when my best friend and I are thrifting together, there’s an endless amount of surprises in store. One last tip would be to be open minded as hell! You can’t be picky with thrifted clothes, after all they are secondhand clothes, but just be patient and give the piece a try before you toss it. Do not ever second guess a piece on a stain or a rip because you may just be missing out on the piece of a lifetime. I hope these tips will encourage someone to take on the amazing activity that is thrifting! Enjoy some of my favorite thrifted pieces and finds below and stay fab!
I thrifted these metallic docs in Durango a few months back and I’m so so happy that I did because they’re the perfect statement shoe.
These Levis 560’s were actually purchased at a yard sale, but they’re still one of my most prized finds.
Quite possibly my favorite find ever is my perfect condition Levis 501’s in one size higher than mine, but I mean come on, they’re 501’s.
This crewneck is my lifeline currently. I cropped it to give it a modern edge and to obviously stir up some conversation between the conservatives in my town.
This zip up sweater (which was $1) has been such a lifesaver on days when I’m wearing something I deem to simple. I’ll grab it and it’ll completely transform my entire look.
This vintage Yves Saint Laurent button up was actually my first thrifted find and holds a special place in my heart because of that. It’s one of the softest things I’ve ever put on my body and it was $2 YSL, only a fool would pass that up.
This graphic tee has completely changed my outlook on fashion. I bought it because it was $1 and because it reminded me of something my fashion icon Bella Hadid would wear, so I had to!
You read that right, this is my personal comeback. I realize I’ve been extremely absent and incosistent with my posting, but I have promised myself that I’d commit to posting truly exceptional content, consistently. I figured that this mega cool combo of black, metallic silver, and white would be the perfect way to make a return to my blogging ways.
In other news, obviously I want to touch on the recent remarks made towards bloggers by none other than Vogue Magazine. For now I’ll just say that I’m utterly disappointed and upset that an institution like Vogue (who has the utmost respect and influence from the fashion world) would demean and bully bloggers who have assisted in their site and magazine’s recent success. (Stay tuned for full post) Have a great week and stay fab!

As usual I’ve fallen behind on my blogging, so once again I’m sorry for the absence. I just started school on Monday and it’s been tough transitioning from staying up all night, staying out all night, and having 0 responsibility to waking up early & having crazy amounts of responsibility. All in all, I’m gonna need some patience from you guys! Bare with me as I make this transition and begin to give you some quality content! Have a great week and stay fab! (Enjoy some iPhone pics I took with my friend the other night)
Vintage Levi’s denim // Thrifted jacket // H&M sneakers
While I really wanted to shoot this shirt with a real camera, I really haven’t been in the mood to shoot pictures lately. Not that I’m uninterested in posting on my blog, but my best/closest friend has been visiting from Texas most of the summer so I’ve been soaking up her presence as much as I possibly can.
This shirt might be my favorite camel colored piece I own. Not only have I been searching for the perfect camel button up, but I’ve been desperately searching for a suede piece of any kind. And when I first laid eyes on this, I knew it had to be mine. It’s a comfortable and versatile piece that has the capability to elevate an outfit 10x. Have a great week and stay fab!
I’ve been the world’s biggest critic/skeptic of Wranglers denim. Something about the mediocrity and overall vibe of the jeans really threw me off. UNTIL I came across this vintage pair at a thrift shop and my whole perspective was eroded before my eyes. The fit, the wash, and the price obviously all drew me in and hooked me. I instantly fell madly in love with them, and just like that my denim collection has grown by yet another pair of astounding jeans. Have a great week and stay fab! (Sorry for the low quality, it was late and the lighting was terrible ,and they were taken on my iPhone)
