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.

This….is the face of an A.
This is from Wednesday (I know, long layover time, but what can I say, I’ve been SO busy!). On Wednesday I had a presentation for my Media Criticism class and I chose to do it over an analysis of Mean Girls from the Visual Perspective. I was sooooo nervous about it, you guys have no idea. Plus,to add more stress, I had just finished preparing my presentation that morning! But I confidently presented my work and, all glory to God, I got a 25/25! I was so happy. At any rate I wish I could show you guys my entire presentation look. I was quite cute if I do say so myself! But sadly I didn’t have time to get someone to take a full picture of me before I had to go off to work. I did get some makeup shots, though. Hope you guys like!

What do you guys think of this makeup look?
Hello and happy Saturday my dears. I got inspired by the season changes of the incoming fall and decided to translate that into fashion! I took to polyvore and made a few outfit combinations. I even submitted two of them to Polyvore’s Fall Wardrobe Contest, just for the heck of it. Here’s what I put together….
Well there it is! Hopefully my look creations inspire you just as much as I was inspired to create them!
Let me know which is your favorite. What’d you’d wear or what you wouldn’t.
and until next time!
Hello my lovelies, I know it’s been a minute since the last time I blogged, but I’ve been uber busy (so bear with me). But guess what today is guys???? My birthday!!!! I am making 21 today and I am excited about it!!! I got my nails done and I wanted to share them with you all. I bought the pink color in a hair store for $1.18 and its called Pastel Pink. It looks like more of a “barbie pink” in my opinion, though. The ring finger color is Champagne (fitting for 21, ehh?) and I have a gold glitter with light pink hearts coating the Champagne nail. I chose a mix between a natural and stiletto shape, because I didn’t want my nails too pointy (no witch nails here!). The same pink color is on my toes. I thourougly enjoyed my super deluxe mani/pedi and I personally lovveee how my nails and toes turned out. Pictures are below, tell me what you guys think! 🙂
P.S. : There will be other birthday related post to show you guys my hair and my various birthday looks (there will be a few, SO STAY TUNED!!)
Until Next Time!
A couple weeks ago, I did a post on Gold vs. Silver. However, you don’t have to choose! You can wear both at “the same d*mn time” *2chains voice*. Let me give you guys a couple of quick tips for how to do it, and pictures for inspiration….Leggoo!!
Buy pieces already mixed…
Why not let the designers do the work for you and buy pieces that already have gold, silver, copper, or whatever your metallic combo choice already pre-mixed?? It takes a lot of the thought process off your back, while ensuring your success as a metal mixing connoisseur!
Use rings to mix it up…
Rings are a simple, no fuss way to mix a variety of metals into one outfit with out looking forced or tacky. Put on three or four of ’em in a variety of metal shades for a look that adds a sprinkle of edge to any outfit.
Layer, layer, layer…
Bangles, necklaces, whatever, layer them up with varying metals! It can give the allusion of a cohesive mixed piece of jewelry and this method allows you to choose what metals you want to mix versus it being dictated for you by an already mixed piece.
Now be inspired by a couple of photographs…
The tips I gave are just a few easy ways to incorporate a little edge in your outfit via metal mixing, however there are many other ways! Ultimately just do what looks and feels right. Trust your fashion instincts!
Until Next Time!
