Holy shit has it really been two months since my last post?? FUCK. I have fallen behind on so many things in my life but the one thing I’m most destroyed by is my blog. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, my blog is my baby (and from the looks of it I’d be a ludicrous parent in every way possible). I’m not completely sure how I let myself fall so horribly behind on my posting, but I know that it was most certainly not purposeful. A shit ton of stuff has occurred in these past two months and I’m not gonna lie there’s been periods when I’ve doubted myself beyond the point of return. Things I never dreamed would be thrown at me, were thrown at me and I didn’t handle any of it healthily that’s for damn sure. I won’t get into the gritty details (to spare you and myself the pity), but I want you to know that I have every intention of getting back on track. Now I know what you’re thinking, “Where have we heard that one before?” Yes, I realize I say that every time I fall behind on posting but at this point in my life it seems that my blog could be the one thing that can bring me complete and utter joy. So anyways, my shitty and immensely convoluted life aside, how has everyone been?? How’s life? What did I miss??
Onto the stuff you (maybe) actually care about- the outfit. I’ve been on a serious shoe binge lately and to be honest, my bank account is paying for it…hard. These Topshop strappy sandals went on sale literally days after I purchased them at full price, but I swear I wasn’t even bothered a smidge. They’re so incredibly, me, that I couldn’t pass them up!! On an incredibly unrealistic and difficuly quest to find a dupe for the ever so chic Phoebe Philo era Céline strappy toe sandals, I stumbled upon these emerald colored gems. At a fraction of the price of the actual sandals, I absolutely could not resist. Although they squeeze my feet in painful ways I never knew possible, I’m absolutely infatuated with them. They compliment a plethora of pieces in my wardrobe and yes I am just telling myself that to make me and my bank account feel better about blowing a hundred bucks! And what about it?! Not only do they transform any outfit instantaneously, but they’re the statement shoe I’ve been mindlessly scouring for my entire life. I am obsessed with the way they pair so harmoniously with these sick vintage velvet Wranglers I found awhile back! Obviously I had to polish off the whole mime-vibe of the look and throw on my trusty ASOS striped top. Throw in a subtly bejeweled mini top handle bag, and you’ve got yourself a lewQ! Hope you enjoyed my blabbering after all this time! Have a fab and safe Halloweekend loves! Stay fab!

Hellloooooo lovelies!! In case you were wondering, I am in fact still alive and well even though my lack of posts says otherwise. I recently had a longtime, extremely close friend visit our hometown and I soaked up every last second spent with her! She does not get to visit often but when she does we have the most fun imaginable. Because she comes from Texas she doesn’t get to see the mountains very often so doing a hike was a mandatory activity. We hiked a beautiful 2 mile trail that lead to an insanely scenic lake called Spud Lake. It was quite the work out, but like all hikes, worth it in the end! Also I figured it was far past due that I jump on the bike shorts trend, so like any crafty blogger I cut some old Target workout leggings and voila!!! A chic pair of shorts for every occasion! Have a great week and stay fab!
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’m baaaaaaaaAAAck!!!! Miss me?! I sure missed blogging! So I know I said I would be updating from Cali, but to be honest something comes over me in California and it’s like when I’m there I just completely space off my real life responsibilities and duties. Anyways, I had an otherworldly time at Disneyland, spending time with my family, eating anything even remotely considered “junk food”, and just basking in all the greatness that Cali has to offer! I truly live my happiest moments while I’m in California, and it’s not just because of Disneyland (which is a big factor). It’s because it is a place where I feel 100% without a doubt comfortable and well, happy! I also love to pull out all the stops in terms of my wardrobe. It is appropriate given the fact that where I live is not in the slightest bit stylish. When I say “stylish” I mean the people just don’t understand the things I wear and all the intricacies that come with fashion. In Cali, no one bats an eye, and some even compliment my looks! Stuff like that just does not happen in New Mexico, so you can imagine my excitement!
This look was a super quick and comfortable fit that I threw on to do some light souvenir shopping (which rapidly turned into a 2 hour long trip). I’m obsessed with these vintage Adidas track pants I got awhile back. Not only are they crazy comfy, but they’re very reminiscent of the Y2K vibe that I’m so wildly into right now. To add to the vintage nature of this outfit, I threw on my trusty old New Balance dad sneakers and called it good! At first I was skeptical to pair the two together because I felt it would be a little too much, but they complimented each other harmoniously! No outfit of mine is complete without a white tee, so naturally I gave it a nice west coast twist by tying a knot. I find it to be a simple yet chic way to spice up a summer look! There are so many more pictures that I’m dying to share with you guys so make sure to stay tuned! Stay fab my friends!

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!
You may be wondering “what does he mean by unconventional denim” or you may not. Either way, what I meant by that is that I’m currently on the prowl for different ways to style a denim piece, this being one of them. I’ve always admired the way some people in fashion have a knack for coming up with new ways to style certain pieces. A fanny pack over the chest, sweaters as scarves, and even layering belts! The options are absolutely endless!
I buttoned this denim jacket kind of assymetrically to give it that dope look of the thousand dollar Balenciaga denim jacket that i dream about. It’s a simple trick that has a monumental impact on any outfit! I paired it with these new trousers I thrifted. Grey plaid had a huge moment this past fall, and I intend on carrying it out through spring/Summer! It’s such a timeless print, with endless amounts of styling options. I love the contrast of the grey & green from my Stan Smith’s so much! It’s a color combo I never thought I’d find myself utilizing, but I looove it! Also, this baby Adidas bag is on major rotation right now in my wardrobe. It’s classic, easily portable, and so fucking cute I can’t even comprehend. It’s the perfect finishing touch to an already, “fire” outfit, good one huh?! Have a great week and stay fab!
