Give a little time to me...

So I guess I was just kidding about blogging before leaving for spring break.
I had work every day this past week so I didn't have time to post anything but now that I am officially home, I have a fun post for you all.
Of course, the first full day I'm back, where do I go? Yes, Topshop. I swear, actually earning money is difficult for me because I just buy shit and that's not good. I mean it's great but it's not good.
But anyway, yeah I got to run around LA with my fam (in our matching black and white outfits by the way haha) and it was grand.

It's been nice being home. I'm seeing my sis again this weekend so that's going to be fun.
Lately I've been loving just sleeping in and driving around at night with Christine and our shenanigans. I can always count on her to randomly run around Monrovia with me. Smiles.
Hopefully I can get another post in this week before I go back to SC.

Something in the way you move...

I apologize if you're getting tired of Fashion Month. I have to get these out of my system. There are only two more including this one so don't you worry. Plus Milan was gorgeous as always, such a production.
I'll keep it short for you if that's possible. So here are my favorites from MFW.

Versace
How can you not with Versace? I realize that once the Costume Institute announces their theme (which is punk), the fashion world goes a little cray for Fashion Week. This show was no different than the other punk shows save for one thing. It was so over the top with the vinyl and lethal spikes that it ended up being so great. The looks were super fetish-y with the contrasts of fur and vinyl, it was almost uncomfortable but not quite, which made it so fun for me to watch. Loved it.


Dolce & Gabbana
Okay I'm an art history major so I fell in love with this collection right away, from the first look to the last. Thumbs up to the mosaic prints and super meticulous hand beading. It was a refreshing show because it was so different from everything else we've been seeing at Fashion Week. The styling was perfect with the romantic Catholic, Byzantine slash Venetian thing going on, I loved it so much. There was one problem I had which was the amount of looks, okay there were over seventy outfits that walked out. I could have done without the break in the middle with the menswear material as well but all in all it was beautifully done.


Philipp Plein
This was definitely a show show with Grace Jones performing and being amazeballs. Basically if this is what I'm supposed to look like in the fall, then sign me right up. I felt like the collection was a party, it was everything I love put into one show. There was lots of fur, leather and sequins (oh my god the leather pants that look like there's stain glass going down your leg give me them now). The setting was gorgeous as well, I love when shows are not just the models and a catwalk. Philipp Plein was a stand out for me.


Fausto Puglisi
I love me some Brit punk revolution and this was the epitome of it. It was just beautiful to look at. The models looked like Scots that were about to kick my ass. I loved the tartan mixed with the leather and buckles and just everything about this collection. And more baseball caps! Love a good snappy and I want all of them. I mean they're plaid, come on it's perfect.


Emilio Pucci
I've had my eye on Pucci for a while now, but I was never really invested in it. Then I saw all of Rita Ora's outfits for her recent tour, every single one designed by Pucci. Gorgeous. So then I waited for this collection and I almost died. Two words described the collection for me and they are hell and yes. It was a show of 70s rock goddesses with the bangs and the fur and the suede. I loved the mix of pastel and black which really surprised me. And those super thigh high suede boots (particularly the red ones) I can't. Perfect. Peter Dundas did an amazing job on this collection.


Anyway, finals are coming up so I have papers to do and what not. I will blog before I go home though.
And I love you guys so instead of throwing Paris FW at you next I will give you a break. Smiles

As long as there's sun...

Hi dears!
Fashion Week is making me a little flustered how about you? I feel so behind, I can't imagine actually having to go see the shows (even though that would be amazeballs). 
But anyway, behind or not, I still would like you all to see my faves from London Fashion Week because they were perfect.

Topshop Unique
Let's start with the belle of the ball, Topshop. I had two favorite shows and this was one of them. First, the pieces were just totally boss and I want a lot of them for myself. Second, the people who attended this show made me fangirl for days. Third, the soundtrack to the show had this 90s nostalgia, I mean come on. And fourth, Cara Delevingne. Enough said. The pieces were a throwback to Brit pop (fitting) with the patent leather and weird textures. There was a great youthful chic feeling about them which was tough but nice and romantic. Give me everything.


Christopher Kane
This show was absolutely insane in every way possible. An MRI of a human brain printed on shirts, static looking dresses that look like I would get electrocuted if I touched it, I mean it was awesome. There was this gothic, Frankenstein-y feel about the pieces with big shoulders and color choices. If you know me, you know my favorite part of the whole (really long) show was the velvet pieces that appeared. I freaked out and I want them. Oxblood velvet? Yes.


Ashish
If sequins aren't your thing, look away. This collection was banana sandwich, which is very good, just if you didn't know what that means. I fell in love with the slouchy sparkly tough girl look, it was a mix of everything I love to wear. If you don't already know, I am obsessed with sequins and denim so this show was perfect. I went crazy for the all denim outfits and the awesome hologram looks. And that "I'm having a shit day thanks" tee, just oh my god want.


Jean-Pierre Braganza
This was so simple but amazing and strong. I think it gave either a love or hate feeling because it was so out there but of course I loved it because it was insane. It had this sci-fi feel with the prints that were used, I mean they all looked like aliens. When the outfit was sharp, it was super sharp, and when the garment was supposed to flow, it flowed like water and I thought it was phenomenal.


Moschino Cheap and Chic
So this was my other favorite of LFW. I couldn't handle myself with this one. I'm obsessed with everything British so the rise of British punk motif that was seriously screaming at you in this collection made me faint. It was rebellious and rough, but somewhat sweet at the same time with the pink and the leopard and the fur. I feel like people tend to overdo the leopard but this was done really nicely. I also love me some black and white all the time so basically a big yes to this collection.


Hope you enjoyed.
Sorry if Fashion Week (or month) is taking me a while to write about. And sorry that I haven't been posting either. I just got a job, finals are coming up, and all that jazz. To see what I'm up to every day, follow me on my Twitter or Instagram.
See you pretties soon. xo
