Menswear Mondays: Give it to me A$AP

It’s Menswear Monday BIIITTTCCCHHHESSSSS 

*snaps and applause*

lets do it up one time for the men, ya’ll only get one day a week so i’ll do my best to make it SPICY

So a few weeks ago I heard the song Wild for the Night by A$AP Rocky ft Skrillex from his debut album (not mixtape, album) Long.Live.A$AP. Like I’d heard it before in passing but never the whole thing ( you know how that goes)…and that song is PLAYA-5000. I love it! And it has been decided by myself and the bestie to make that one of the cardinal songs of our summer.

Great F’in Song.

But there’s another reason to take note of Wild for the Night and that is the video. A$AP Rocky wore some killer garb for his wild night in the Dominican Republic.

The matching patterned shirt-jacket combo was a smart & cool fashion choice, couple with white shorts to keep the pattern toned down jussssst enough. The fit of the shorts with a little cuff, was a nice style move as well. The gold rimmed circle glasses add another interesting element to the look and the backwards cap and gold chain make it just gangsta enough to be fit for the purple swag king.

A$AP’s music is great, but his style may be something to keep an eye on as well.

stay tuned men, & every Monday I’ll make ya remember why ya’ll never unfollow this girlie blog!

Raving Saturday

Hello my dears!

On Saturday I had my very 1st rave experience thanks to my best friend Philly :). We went to a rave club called Kryptonite and had tons of fun. Everyone was extremely nice and social, I even got painted! The whole evening was tons of fun and something I would definitely do again.

Philly gave me a little guidance on the look I should go for to be ‘rave appropriate’  and I’d like to share the outcome with you guys. Its a little hard to see our outfits in most of these shots ( we were a little too focused on having fun to take better pictures, sorry :/) but hopefully you see enough of our makeup and clothing to get a general idea of the look….ENJOY!

Check out the glow paint, GAHHH i love it!

My Outfit

Black Corset – Philly’s

Black Tights

Black Over-The-Knee Boots – Payless

Spiked Collar – borrowed

My Hair

Stretched Out Fro

(from old shrunken twist out that had been previously ponytailed)

My Makeup

Eyebrows – NYC Eyebrow Pencil in Midnight Brown

Concealer – NYC in 786 light (used to define brows and as a primer)

Eyeshadow – Coastal Scents 88 Palette (3 different purples and 1 gray, 1 white, 1 black)

Eyeliner- NYC Liquid Eyeliner in Black

Mascara – NYC Instant Lash in Black

Lipliner – NYC Eyebrow Pencil in Midnight Brown

Lipstick – NK Black Orchid 302

Philly’s green eyeshadow also comes from the Coastal Scents 88 palette, but her makeup is a combination of that and her own eyeshadows, lipstick, lip pencils, etc, etc…you get the picture. (I wish I could tell you everything she used, but I cannot, I apologize). But i can tell you, she got that wonderful deep berry lipshade by using a black eyeliner pencil and her burgundy lipshade on top. Creativity for the WIN!

What do you guys think of our rave looks? Tell me the kind of stuff you’d wear to a rave!

Until Next Time

XOXO Jaz’.

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!

Okay, Confessions of a Fashion Blogger: I’m really doing this post for no fashionable reason at all, but simply because I miss my little sister, Janae’a. She came out to visit me last week and its safe to say that I’m slightly saddened by her current absence :/.

However…

I know that you guys don’t care to hear me whining like a big baby soooo

I will get on to something fashion related….my outfit!

My sister and I were headed out to party with a group of my friends. Before I get into my outfit though, I must explain to you all the massive halo of hair atop my head. I had blown my hair out earlier that day in hopes to straighten it, but for a number of reasons I never got around to it. I had no clue what to do with my hair so I said what the heck, ill just be free and rock my big, crazy hair in all it blowdried glory!

Ok…now the outfit…forreal this time…

Patterned Top: Gift

Tank: Walmart-$6.99

Skirt: F21-$8.80

Camel Wedges: Payless – Gift

Juicy Couture Bag (not in the photos) : Juicycouture.com $169 (i got it on sale!)

I dressed my sister for the night as well and did her makeup! She is wearing…

Dress: F21-$19.80

Levi Strauss Jean Vest: mom

Black Oxfords: Thrifted-$1.25

Until Next Time!

OOTD: Dabbling in Aztec

Today was a blazin’ hot day in the southern United States. I spent the majority of it inside filing papers and preparing for final exams (session 1 is almost over, yippeee!!). This is how I faired the weather today..

Gold Hoops: Beauty Supply – $2

Gray Tank: Old Navy – $9

Jean Shirt: Walmart – $10

Belt: Forever 21 – $8.80

Aztec Skirt: Forever 21

Sandals: Don’t remember – $9

The jean shirt was worn in the cold offices and classrooms that i spent much of my time in today. Outdoors, the jean element came straight off, otherwise i’d risk a heat stroke. This outfit is centered around the skirt. A touch of aztec never hurt anyone! &if you glance at this little aztec number, you’ll see I got a little mint in there too…trend bonus!

Until Next Time!

June Wishlist !

Hi guys, I wanna share with you all some things I’m really wishing I had my paws on this month:

Image

Jeffery Campbell Night Walk Pumps

I adore these ! Especially in this mint color that is oh-so hot for the season right now. I could just see myself wearing these with an LBD out on the town one party-ful night. *sigh* dare to dream. They can be found on Solestruck.com for $169.95 and they are to die for in pink, also. One of these days…

Image

 Sparkle Polish

I am SUCH a fan of the glittery sparkle nail right now! The last time I did my nails I did them in pink sparkles and I love, love, loved the outcome. I think the next I wanna try is all silver sparkle…we shall see.

Image

Maxi Dresses

Ahhh maxi dresses, ill take one in every color (and pattern) please ! You can never have enough of ’em, especially the racerback style…so relaxed and cute at the same time. LOVE!

Image

Ombre’ Hair

Its still something I have been dying to try! Its sadly not in the budget right now though, which leads me to my next wish…

Image

Money, money, money !

Infinite amounts of cash would be ever so clutch right now! Especially because lately I have had the incessant yearning to shop till I drop, a yearning I have had to reluctantly deny as a woman on a strict budget. Oh how I wish I could spend spend spend with no regard to the responsibilites of life. But sadly this is not so, especially this month. One day my bags of money will come…one day. Maybe i’ll marry rich *shrugs*.

Lastly but not least I am wishing for…

Image

DEATH TO ALL CRICKETS!!!!

Okay before you think, she has gone off the deep end and this has nothing to do with fashion at all, I’m gonna just tell you…you’re right. But I just HAVE to share this story with you guys.*WARNING: A RANT WILL ENSUE* Okay, so I wake up yesterday morning a bit earlier than normal because I planned to shower and get ready then do a little reading before work and class. So its 7 in the morning and I’m just showering it up and what do I see when I look over at the sponge on the corner of my tub, but a ugly little cricket! Ewwwwwww!!!! I froze at first sight but then cut off the water and got out as I thought of a plan. Let me just let yall know that I HATE bugs. &one that hops AND flies???? A definite recipe for disaster, so my plan was to take two large cups and douse it so I could ring it down my tub. I do this and just as the cricket is about to go down the hole and away from me forever my stopper closes right in the way. AMAZING. Just my luck. So after freaking out some more I regroup and try to drown it with hot water. THAT didnt even work, because amazingly the stopper closed just enough to not let the cricket go down, but to let the water drain out. Ultimately I had to end up calling a friend of mine to kill it, with only minutes to spare before work. And to make matters worse I kept seeing crickets, dead and alive, all day. They were following me!!!! Yuck. I just want them all to die, even down to Jiminy. Yup, thats right I said it.

Okay….Rant. Over.

Well these are the things I deeply desire this month, what’s some things on you guys wishlist??? Let me know!

Until Next Time!!

XOXO Jaz’
