You know we're on each other's team...

Happy late Christmas babies!
I'm back in Santa Cruz after a great week at home. I actually didn't know I was getting back so soon after Christmas but I think I might be back next week anyway. Also I surprised the boss man today at work and I feel like it really made his day and yeah I'm a happy girl. Smiles.

If you have followed me for a while, you know my fam and I celebrate together on Christmas Eve. And it was awesome. I'm really into the plaid trend thing right now so when I saw this skort at work, I knew I had to wear it on Christmas. It was kinda perfect.


With work and what not, maybe I'll see you guys in the new year, maybe sooner. I don't know but I hope you all have an amazing end to 2013! Love yous.

I just started living...

So I know I said I was going to post an outfit before I left for LA but I didn't so I'm sorry about that. Everything was so hectic when we were leaving. I just wanted to spend time with certain people and finish shopping and what not up in Santa Cruz. But anyway.

I just got back to my parents' house from hanging out at my sister's all weekend and of course I had a grand time. We got the traditions done like watching Little Women and taking a Christmas tree picture at the Grove. It was a little short for me but sweet all the same. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my adventures.

As far as my outfit goes, I felt so Christmas-y with the red plaid pants and the fur. But it was a good thing. Also my shoes are a new addition to my collection thanks to the boss man and they're basically perfect. He's a good listener. Smiles.


I'll see you all soon! xo
So excited for Christmas!

We sink, we lift our love...

Hi lovelies!
So I'm super excited for the holidays and all the fun stuff that comes with it. I thought I'd post some goodies from my wish list since it is now December.
This next week is finals week so I will a little busy the next couple of days. However, I will definitely see you in a week after the crap festival is over. Just wanted to leave you with some pretty things. What's on your list this year?

And time is frozen...

I'm back in Santa Cruz after the blur that was my holiday.
My Thanksgiving was really short and sweet. I had a couple days to see my favorite people and it was all I needed. My parents drove me back and they are currently still here enjoying Santa Cruz.
I'm surprised I even have the time to post since I'm working this whole weekend. I worked yesterday, yes I worked Black Friday. Not something to be desired. 

But anyway, here are some snaps of what I wore on Thanksgiving.


I saw this dress at work about two months ago and I knew I wanted to wear it on Thanksgiving. I'm really digging dark florals for the holiday season and this was kinda perfect.
I was really bummed out when I thought I wasn't going to get to come home this year, but it all worked out. So it's a happy story. Smiles.

Bound to fall in love...

It's late and I should be sleeping, but I have left packing to the last minute yet again. I think it seems to be some sort of tradition for me.
Yes, by the grace of Yeezus, I am going home for Thanksgiving. It's only going to be for a couple days but that is enough for me. I mainly just want to see some awesome peeps, eat food that I didn't buy or make, and take a break from Santa Cruz for even just a little. 

I decided I would just do a quick post about my current favorite thing at the moment which is this dress.


It's kind of perfect really, especially since I had been looking for something exactly like this for ages and then it just showed up at work. Smiles.
Also can we please talk about how wonderful Catching Fire was? Go see it if you haven't.

By the way ya'll should watch this version of Kanye's weird ass music video. Thousand times better.

Dancing through the fire...

Yes we are well into November and I'm barely posting about shenanigans from Halloween.
It's been a busy couple of weeks with midterms and working and all that good stuff. I feel like I'm always making excuses on here and it makes me mad. 
I love talking to you guys about my life and showing you what I'm up to. I promise this month will be better. So here's a little quick post from Halloween night.


There wasn't much time to take pictures since we were havin' a ball but I did the best I could. We mainly just hung out in downtown Santa Cruz which was insane since they close off Pacific Ave. on Halloween night. I hung out with some awesome peeps at the Red Room and it was great.
As for my costume, I knew I wanted to be a zombie of some sort because Veronica is amazing at doing the make up for it and also why wouldn't you want to be a zombie? Duh. Plus I didn't really want to have to buy a costume so I just looked in my wardrobe and found a lumberjack outfit. Plus it was functional and comfortable enough to wear downtown, walking a lot and gettin' dranks and all that jazz. Smiles.

We jumped never asking why...

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I've posted on this.
Life has been grand in every which way, trying to balance my time between school life, work life, and my social life. It's a struggle but for the first time in a while, I'm extremely happy with pretty much everything. And that's that. I'm just happy.

I just wanted to post about my lady love bester's 21st birthday that happened over a week ago.
Her birthday basically spanned over a whole weekend and I hope she had a grand time. We've been waiting for both of us to be 21 for almost four years now and I just feel like this is one of the many milestones we'll hit together. I never expected to get a best friend in college but here she is. I can honestly say I wouldn't have been able to get through the past three years without her. But enough of the sappy. Smiles.

I got to wear my new favorite dress on her birthday night. A week beforehand, I had treated myself and splurged on some UNIF and I have no regrets. This dress is everything to me and it's even on display in my room. Is that too much?


This last photo is us celebrating at midnight. And it's basically my favorite picture.

Only two posts in October, I know. That's really bad. But the holidays are coming up and I'm stoked.
I'll really try and post more on here because I do miss it when I haven't in a while.

See you soon. xo

Kiss the ring and let em bow down...

So I know I'm way behind on Fashion Week. I'm also behind on posting on here so I apologize for that.
School and work and life have been really hectic but really exciting so I've had no time for anything. I haven't even had a proper outfit post in a while either. If you really want to see what's going on in my life, follow my Instagram or Twitter which I always link at the bottom of my posts. You can expect to see a lot of exciting stuff coming up.

Okay so I figured I will still post on my faves from Fashion Week because why the heck not. It's super late but better late than never. Here are my favorites from London.

House of Holland
This was some dreamy 90's romantic kind of show and I loved it. With the purple clouds in the background, I loved the boyish shapes but feminine patterns and colors. Also the fact that he used a tattoo artist friend's designs made me super happy.

Meadham Kirchhoff
The details of the pieces in this show took my breath away. There was a sense of haunted playfulness that I loved and I felt that each look had something for everyone. I mean dead roses, lace, and punk babydoll dresses. Gimme it.

Sister by Sibling
You can totally tell when the models have been told to smile on the runway, like in this show. I mean it's cute but a little distracting. Despite that little setback, I actually enjoyed the 50's with edge look that they were going for, a sort of Mad Men-esque feel with even more Valium and alcohol. She was quite messy and a little more sinister, which I love.

Topshop Unique
I think the goal of this collection was to show the wide range of girls that can wear Topshop. Every look had something different going on but all seem to work cohesively together. Lots of low backs, no bras, and spaghetti strap 90's-ness was happening and I loved it. Oh and that yellow jumpsuit, yes please. Lady boner.

Ashish
Sequins galore every time but I'm not complaining! Ashish is always fun and we can all agree to that. I love the fancy messy girl look and I can't wait to rock huge destroyed jeans in the spring. Way to mix leopard with zebra as well as making it actually look good. And one more thing, Chloe Nørgaard is perfection.

See you soon babes. x

Just hold on we're going home...

I know I know! It's been like a week since I've posted which is really bad.
I mean I was home so I was rarely near a computer, I was going out every night and spending time with people. I got back to Santa Cruz on Sunday and then worked for the next couple of days and then hung out with more amazeballs people that I missed. I was in my own little world with them. To be honest, I'm really happy, which is new for me if you didn't know. You guys who have been reading for a while know that when post something personal on this it's a big deal, and it's usually about problems in my life. But this time it's not so be happy that I'm happy.

Anyway enough with the excuses. I have also missed you amazeballs peeps so I thought I would have a little chat with you before my first class as a senior which is really scary to think about but I kinda stoked on it.
My sissy bear turned 28 this past Saturday and I already miss that lady. I spent the whole day with her and our bam fam and also Veronica since we were lucky enough to still have her in town. And I also spent the night at her house which was super fun. We were in one of my favorite places ever, Pasadena, and we just had a grand old time. Smiles.


I'll update you more on the past week or so when I get more time. Wish me luck on my first day!
Also you will get the rest of the Fashion Week stuffs soon too.

Some people talk about ya...

It's always hard deciding on my favorites from Fashion Week. But I did manage to do it.
I know I know, London's done and Milan is happening, I am well aware, but other things needed to be blogged. I am also currently home in Monrovia at the moment so I've been a busy bee.
With that said, here are my faves from NYFW.

Sass & Bide
This show was so polished but also fun and that's really difficult to pull off. I loved the mix of masculine cuts with the feminine details. This was one show that used a lot of white that I actually enjoyed.


Peter Som
There were so many pieces from this collection that were easy to wear. It wasn't some production but actual clothes that people can buy. The cuts were so fluid it was amazing. A great mix of patterns and fabrics that somehow all worked together.

Altuzarra
Another show that showcased real life wear. This collection made separates sexy even with the random mix of that blue patchwork print and all the fun fringe. And gah that last silver dress, gorge.

Rebecca Minkoff
I love the sporty Frida Kahlo thing that was happening here. Racing stripes and lace? Who woulda thunk? And color. Thank you. Also, Janelle Monáe, enough said.

Alexander Wang
I wanted sexy sets for spring and these were sexy. I also loved that the colors were muted. There was a lot of white at NYFW and I was getting annoyed by the end. The mens fabric took me by surprise but it was a nice change.

Opening Ceremony
More color yay. For their first runway show, this was pretty epic, straight up street badasses. There was a good mix of high fashion and streetwear and you don't get a lot of that nowadays. It was definitely not the plain whiteness that people were starting to get used to during NYFW. Loved it.

I fell in love with a lot of others, many honorable mentions. Jeremy Scott with the teenage aliens, Steven Alan got me with those reflective sunglasses, and Rodarte is always gorgeous to watch.
A couple things:
I'm currently in LA at the moment so I will try to get you London and Milan Fashion Weeks to you quickly. I might sneak in an outfit post from a couple weeks ago as well.
Another thing, if you don't already know from my Instagram, I chopped all my hair off. It was a pretty spur of the moment decision, but I have been planning on cutting my hair for a while now. Change is good, and there have been some really good changes in my life at the moment. Smiles.

It's all in your eyes...

So this is the final Vegas post! I'm still counting it as Vegas even though this entire post was taken when we stopped for a stretch in the middle of nowhere, Nevada, on our way back home. It was ugly hot outside and my hair was no match for the wind but George got some great shots of our surroundings.


We had a great trip. I miss the desert so much. Smiles.

By the way, if you don't already know, New York Fashion Week is over but say hello to London Fashion Week. Got my NYFW round up coming soon!

We crave a different kind of buzz...

More Vegas stuff for ya!
This was what I wore later on in the night after all the hardcore shopping we did earlier in the day. We got all dolled up for my momma's birthday and had an awesome dinner at the Paris Hotel and saw a show there.
It's unfortunate that I didn't get more photos of my outfit but we worked with what we got. The dress I wore has this amazing lace panel that spans my entire back and it's amazeballs.
I miss Vegas so much.


Anyway so we're almost done with this Vegas thing, don't worry. I got some fun New York Fashion Week stuff coming soon and a recent outfit post from this last Friday in San Jose. 
Another thing, I'm going home for a couple days next week and I'm going to have a ball. Smiles.

Also in honor of today, we'll never forget. RIP to the victims of 9/11.

And we won't stop...

Here's the second part of the Vegas extravaganza!
This day was my mother's actual birthday so we made a whole day of it. We had brunch at the Bellagio and shopped til we dropped over at Fashion Show mall, especially since Topshop was there. The malls in Vegas are literally theme parks. You can't see everything in only one day. That night we had a lovely dinner before we went and saw a show at the Paris Hotel which I may or may not blog about, I'm not quite sure yet.
This top is kinda one of my favorites right now, I can wear it with anything. Everything DimePiece is just incredible and I can't wait to add more to my closet. The denim skirt was one of the things I picked up from Bolo Vintage in San Jose about a month ago. It's so easy to wear. This outfit kept me pretty cool, especially since it was hot as balls in Vegas.


The third part of our Vegas trip will be up soon! Sorry it's taking me a while.
Also a couple things:
Yes, I will be doing a New York Fashion Week post after the Vegas shenanigans.
Tonight is First Friday in San Jose again and Veronica and I will be going. Expect a post from that soon.
Hope yous are having a great September so far. xo
