In The Deep

Button Jersey // 10 Deep
Triple Strap Heels // MakeMeChic
Black Croc Backpack // Nina Ricci - thrifted
Black Round Aviator Sunnies // MakeMeChic
Gold Band Choker // MakeMeChic

The best thing about having a tall boyfriend is that you have a whole set of dresses to choose from! I definitely utilize my boyfriend's or dad's shirts as dresses because anything oversized is my fave. I stole his 10 Deep jersey and have worn it more times in the past few months than he ever did in the past few years.

Taupe Lippie // Beeper by ColourPop

I'm always on the go, always busy and always have a million and one things to do. On top of that, being in the fast pace world of the fashion industry only adds to it. I'm a busy girl so there are some mornings where I'm either too tired or running out of time so all I can do is roll into work wearing cotton pants, a baggy tee and my Fentys. However, when you're in fashion, style is a given if not mandatory so looking somewhat decent is always needed. That is where the beautiful art of athleisure comes in! Athleisure style allows me to still dress trendy without looking bummy while staying relaxed and comfy all day long. With a ton of new workout and athleisure brands emerging, there's no excuse to sacrifice style for comfort. A big plus to the athleisure trend is you're already half way dressed for the gym so there's no real excuse to skip your workout!

PS. My dancer pose needs work - I know.

Fishnets + Creepers

Fishnet Top // Nasty Gal (similar)
Halter Sports Bra // Alo
Vintage Versace Belt // Thrifted
Distressed Denim Shorts // DIY
Suede Booties // MakeMeChic

Been wearing a lot of fishnet lately and I think it's just that time of the year. Closer to the holidays it's inevitable to pull out all your darker pieces, stockings, and everything bejeweled - well for me at least. I've probably worn something fishnet or mesh 25 days in the last month because it's the perfect piece in Cali. It's starting to get colder so you want to wear a jacket, but you can't commit because it will get hot so a mesh long sleeve top is a go-to. This week has just been everything but sane and peaceful. I've been so behind on posting my upcoming Youtube video that I told everyone would be up by last week :( Hoping to get back into things this week although it is October and everyone knows once October hits, the next thing you know it's January 2nd.

What was supposed to be a nice lunch get-together with my girl Momo that I haven't seen in years turned into a runaway mission from a creepy pervert - to top off my crazy week. With the little time we had not running away, we shot around DTLB. She just started her blog so definitely check her out! // //

BEAUTY/ ColourPop Ultra Matte Lippies

Out of all the liquid lipstick brands I've tried, ColourPop Cosmetics has the best forumla - in my opinion any way! These lipsticks glide on so smoothly, don't clump and last the whole day. For my second order I decided to pick up some neutral, everyday colors : Bianca, Beeper and Lumiere 2. Can't wait to wear these babies!

Been trying to keep it simple these past couple months. I know I say I'm always busy but life has been crazier than ever with this short, sudden move to a new home, new job, etc. The dust is slowly settling so hopefully I'll be able to pick up my blogging and designing soon!
It's always a pleasure shooting with my babe from Styles By Winnie - don't forget to check her out!

As a a designer myself, I love admiring the detail and materials that go into designer pieces. StyleWe is an online platform that sells designer clothing. I love the concept and idea of StyleWe because it introduces the consumer to new designers, underground designers and many more names that they have never heard of. I got the opportunity to select two items from StyleWe to review and share with you guys! Check out my review video above to hear what I loved about my two beautiful wardrobe additions!

All Meshed Up

Grey Fedora // Forever 21
Acid Wash Denim Jacket // thrifted
Bralette // Luxe + Lexie
Mesh Dress // Luxe + Lexie
Thigh High Boots // Qupid (similar)
Jewelry // vintage

I love mesh for those sunny, breezy days because it's still breathable yet keeps you covered - sort of. Found some outfit photos before my blonde days that I never posted. My family and I are all moving out to different cities within the next month, so I'll be posting old outfit photos for a while until I'm settled back in. Happy Friday!

DIY/ Tassel Garland

The Half Baked girls are in the midst of preparing for our Mother's Day Picnic and I was in charge of creating the tassle garland. Many of the tutorials we found for the tassle garland required tissue paper, however our color scheme is baby pink, cream, and white and we could only find a tissue paper pack of pastel colors with only 3 baby pink sheets. I didn't think it was necessary to buy multiple packs just for one color so I sat on it. I walked around the store a bit and behold - I found baby pink streamers! The streamers worked out perfectly using the same technique! I definitely recommend using streamers especially if you only want a one-color garland.

1. Streamers
2. Scissors
3. Tape
4. String

1. Cut streamers to 16". The finished tassle will be 1/2 of your initial length, so feel free to make them longer if you want.
2. Cut 5 more pieces, lay them on top of each other and fold in half to make a crease.
3. Cut each side into 4 strips leaving about 1" before the crease. Repeat to other side.
4. Starting from one side, roll the un-cut center and twist together.
5. Bend the tassle in half and continue twisting the sides together. Make sure you leave a tiny hole at the top for the string.
6. Secure with tape. We used gold glitter tape to add a metallic accent.
7. String all of your tassles together knotting each one at the top.

Have fun with your new decor!
