OOTD: Independent Soul

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.” – Charlotte Brontë

Hello Spiiirits! I hope you had a marvelous 4th of July/4th of July Weekend. Though I’m not big on the America-centric holiday, I know I did. Nothing like a little celebration with friends &/or family to kick off the month right? Speaking of kicking off the month can you believe we have now entered the 7th month of 2014???  Summer is in full swing and we are more than halfway through the year! Crazy. But I couldn’t be more thankful.

At any rate, I wanted to share my 4th of July outfit with you lovely spiiirits!  Triiin & I were invited by our lovely friends Ash & Kwith to enjoy some backyard chillin’ & grillin’. We had the most delicious grilled veggies and grilled seafood (salmon, lobster, & shrimp to boot!). And the night was topped with a wicked fireworks show from an amazing view. Great day 🙂

Crotchet Top: Thrifted, Burgundy Bandeau: Shasa, Skirt: F21, Scarf (for turban): Walmart, Pinstripe Sneakers: Target, Choker: Bombay Fashions, Pyramid Studs: F21, Crossbody Bag: A street vendor we call “Rasta Man” :), Mixed Metal Bracelet: Glitter, Rings (Snake Ring, Coral “crystal ball” Ring, & Earth Tone Oil Paint Ring): Gift + Beauty Supply, Cat-Eye Sunglasses: Santee Alley

The daytime was HOTTTTTTTTT, so I aimed to wear an outfit that could handle the heat, while being stylish & comfortable. No matter how hot in the day, LA tends to cool off substantially at night, so I brought along a yellow cardigan to keep me warm when it got cool out.

As you can see by some of the pictures, Triiin’s outfit was fab & killin’ it, also! If you want details to Triiin’s outfit, just let me know in the comments below! Also…we sell cute custom crops like the one she is wearing at FreeSpiiirit. Email for inquiries.

Hello Lovely Spiiirits!

This past Thursday night Triiin & I went out dancing with our friend Kwith. We went to a spot called Footsies that was full of good music & good vibes. Here are a couple shots from the night as well as what I was wearing. I couldn’t take any good outfit shots until after so excuse the deteriorating condition of my chunky braidout, lol.

OOTD: Updo’s & Thrifted Pleasantries

An Outfit of the Day from a couple days ago…

Actually, it was last Thursday, which was an awesome day for a lot of reasons. It was my last day of Summer session I, my mommie and grammie came out to visit me, and they packed me down with a house full of groceries. I also got a job on Thursday for which I had to go in and do paperwork. As I watch my days’ progressions, it just amazing to see how many blessings God lays in my path. Can’t be anything but thankful.

gold studs – F21, gold charm necklace – SB, shirt – Free Spiiirit Vintage, cobalt pants – Thrifted, seahorse ring – Glitter, bicycle ring – SB, belt – Thrifted, camel oxfords – Thrifted

Every piece of this outfit (minus the studs & rings) was thrifted at some point. Even the necklace, which was borrowed, is a vintage gold piece that was picked up in a thrift store. Ahh, I love my thrifty days. They give life to my inner frugal fashionista! The updo was a quick, easy twist on a simple hairstyle. If you guys want a tutorial, just let me know.

Twenty One : The Birthday Post

As many of you may know, I just made 21 this past weekend. I am still reeling with excitement from all the festivities! ^_^ . On Friday I got my nails and toes done and went to dinner with my family. On Saturday (my actual b-day), I had an early dinner with my family and got to see a couple friends who came from out of town to visit me for the occasion. When I got home my lovely roommate had hung streamers from my door and had a bottle waiting for me. Later that night, my lovely and very awesome friends surprised me with a surprise party for my birthday!!! It was a glow-in-the-dark/blacklight party and it was sooooo much fun!! I also received many gifts with include but are not limited to, bottles of wine and liquor, the Hunger Games DVD, and my very own blacklight!!!!!! The next day my friends and I hung out and went on an excursion to a little place called Dago’s and shared quite the bonding experience. I just want to share my bday experience with you all as only photos can so….here goes!
