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
