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

Menswear Mondays : Costume Ideas for Men

Hola all, Halloween is drawing near!

And I realized that I had given some options to my ladies as far as costumes they could put together from their closest, use a little DIY to make, or cheaply buy, however I offered no recourse for my guys! I apologize my dears, and I am here to fix the situation.

Here are a couple of last minute ideas for costumes you guys can be that won’t break the bank…

The Hobo

This little man did it best! This costume is easy an inventive. Wear a flannel shirt and some ripped jeans, add a little dirt effect for flair, get a styrofoam cup or cardboard sign and put a funny “will work for…” type statement on it and its one and done. Don’t forget your beard! Which can be drawn on or fake hair fuzzies glued on. Your perrogative!

The Zombie

Just like with the girl version, you can wear regular clothes and bloody-fy them. All you need to do is maybe put in some creepy contacts and add a little undead like makeup and you’re good to go.

Clark Kent

Superman! Dun dun dunnnnn!!! Well, not quite…but a much easier way to achieve an even cooler costume. All you need here is a suit and some “nerd glasses” (an easy way to get these is to pop the lenses out of the ones given for 3D movies…perfection). Open up the suit slightly to reveal a shirt with a superman logo on it, just so everyone knows you’re a superhero in disguise. You can easily buy a cheap superman shirt or make your own from a basic tee and an iron on.

The Fireman

Probably one of the easiest to achieve. Especially if you’ve got a nice bod. Boots, pants, suspenders, oiled torso, and a fire hat. One and done.

And there it is! Hopefully I have inspired some good, quick, and easy last minute costume ideas for my men out there. Stay tuned for more men-friendly fashion & advice next week!

Until Next Time

A Belated OOTN

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!

OOTN: Cobalt, Black, & Kickback

Hola chicas (and chicos if your reading, shoutout to you) ! I’m here with an Outfit of the Night for you guys. It was yesterday, June 8th and I guess I was in a really striped-mood yesterday (given what i was wearing earlier that day). The occasion was a kickback/house party of sorts, for a friend of mines birthday. I wanted to look spruced up, but not overly dressy or clubby to be just sitting in someone’s house. So this is what I chose…

ImageImageImageImageImage

Striped Dress (worn as a top): Forever 21 – $19.80

Chain Necklace: Forever 21 – $7.80

Ring: Forever 21 – $6.80

Belt: Forever 21 – $8.80

Bubble Skirt: Forever 21 – $11.80

Sandals: Don’t remember – $9

Purse: Charlotte Russe – $9

(whoa, just realized exactly how much of this outfit came from forever 21, yowzers!)

This look could have been made more downtown-club scene ready by adding heels, wearing the strapless top as the dress it really is, or wearing a bold lip. However, for the type of event I was attending, I feel like this combination was just right.

What do you guys think? Like it? Hate it? Let me know in the comments below.

Until Next Time!
