It's so crazy how addicting social media can be. Just scrolling for countless moments on a screen to see what other people are doing, when ironically they are probably doing what you are doing and it becomes this big cycle of always being up to date. It's great, don't get me wrong, but those expectations to always be in the loop didn't seem to fit into my daily life anymore. 

A lot about fashion blogging is being able to share your thoughts about fashion and show everyone your newest outfits/favorite products. You share those blog posts through your social media handles (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, etc.) and hope it gets a response with your well-thought-out hashtags. People are professionals at this, they live for this, it's their job, and their passion. Reaching out to people through the internet has changed the game for careers. Bloggers, vloggers, musicians, teachers, professional selfie-takers; they all have gotten noticed through their presence online and with a lot of work. That is magical; being able to make a difference around the world through the power of technology. I applaud all of you. All of you dreamers and curious people who took a chance and put yourselves out for the world to see, not just for your high school yearbook or your daily gazette in town, but the actual world. One click, and someone could discover your talent. 

I've found some of my talents right here in this blog, but I know I have more and I'm finding them. I promise though, fashion is my first love and will always be, plus I'd die for a spot at W Magazine. But as college has come and pretty much has gone (I am a senior next semester, can you believe that?), I found new interests that I'm exploring and I'm so excited to learn more about. 
 The year I've been off The Deathly Fashion has been a year of self reflection and a year of figuring out me, because sometimes you think you've got life down but you don't. Now I'm not going to get all personal and deep but the most important thing I've learned was that trying matters the most. I never gave up on myself or this blog, I just had other things I wanted to try and dedicate my time to. However, I still post from time to time on Twitter, will snap a photo of my new shoes I'm obsessed at the moment on Instagram, and stay updated with news in the fashion industry.

So let's fast forward to now: I'm a junior in college continuing my study of Fashion Merchandising and starting a new chapter as a Film and Electronic Arts minor. I have to say, being able to figure out where I want to be in life is great and totally beats the guilt that hung over me for leaving my online persona. I can assure you though, I'm pretty much the same as far as my Harry Potter obsession, shoe- addiction, and love for styling go. So it's the same me plus a little of a new me. How cool is that? We can change as humans, guys! We can change to be better but that doesn't mean you lose who you were before. So don't be afraid of your new curiosities or thoughts that may alter your planned out life from high-school, just TRY it out. 

Don't just dream of success; work for it too! Whatever that success may be, I wish you the best of luck wizard friends.

SoCal Summer

Overalls - Nordstrom BP // Top - Nordstrom // Sunnies - Michael Kors // Shoes - Sam Edelman // Mickey Ears - Disneyland // Watch - Betsey Johnson // Backpack -Roxy // Nails - Sally Hansen Gel Strips'

Turkey dinner at Flo's V8 Cafe in Radiator Springs, Disney California Adventure

With Kelsey from Runaway in LA

The summer sun came out on a beautiful Tuesday in Southern California for us (me and the fabulous Kelsey from Runaway in LA) to venture off into Disney California Adventure park. Though I am an annual passholder, the experience is different when you wake up early, pay to park in the actual Mickey and Friends lot, and get fastpasses. I felt like a full blown tourist; taking photos and carrying a backpack. I even bought new Mickey ears! I'm not gonna fully admit that we walked around the entirety of the park just for the perfect hats ... but we may have. It was worth it. 

Now usually I stay at Disneyland parks for a couple of hours on my regular visits, but for a full blown day from the time the gates of the Magic Kingdom open to the time they kick you out I needed to make sure I was comfortable all day. And oh boy I've been SO excited to show you all my new overalls! Call it fate on the Nordstrom's Half Yearly Sale rack! These babies are super comfortable, if I could I would wear them everyday. Just the perfect amount of distress, pockets, and the legs are a skinny cut. Pure perfection I don't think I'm wearing anything else this summer. And I also won't be using any other type of nail product this summer besides the Sally Hansen Gel Nail Strips. I'm seriously addicted! They look so clean and last for two weeks, it's a miracle. Summer is a miracle. Everything is a miracle.

Enjoy your summer breaks and congratulations to all grads!

In Summer

Dress - TheStyleClub // Shoes - Sam Edelman // Hat - Forever 21 // Rings - Forever 21 // Necklace - Flea Market

What is that? Is it me, really back on the blog? Oh yes. I have two more weeks of school and then back to sweet bliss blogging without having to think about which painting is in the Rococo time period or Romanticism (of course I do know, just FYI). With summer coming quickly I panicked as I really don't have a summer wardrobe yet but, thankfully, I received this bell sleeve, boho floral dress thanks to TheStyleClub! I'm really feeling it, it flows very well and the back of the dress... can we just have a moment for it. It's so beautiful! I'm really into open back dresses and tops for this summer for reasons like: (1) I won't be wearing a backpack to cover my back and (2) keeping cool in the hot weather coming ahead. And yes, I will risk weird tan lines for this, I'm so serious. 

So lets talk more about The Style Club! It is a site for shopping, getting inspired, sharing, and talking with other fashion lovers about, well, fashion! You can add friends like me (here) and we can chat about the stylish clothes, shoes, and accessories on the site. (They have a chatting option, how cool is that?) You can add things to your virtual closet like a wish list, post your own outfit pictures, and see other girls' style. Now they are in beta at the moment, but take a look around and shop! Add me as a friend and show me your style on the site, I'd love to see!

Disney Princess Inspired Prom

Prom season is here again! Ahh, I remember my proms (I went to two, lucky me!) They were some of the best times I have had. Cliche, but so true! Anyways, me and my Disney infested mind decided what better way to put out some prom style boards than ones inspired by princesses? You don't need to win Prom Queen to be the most royal person in the room, just feel it! 

This would not have been a good Disney princess related post if I did not mention Queen Elsa from the newest movie, Frozen. Seriously, I know you all have 'Let It Go' on repeat and your number one most played song on iTunes. I KNOW IT. So let it go, and shoot for the stars in light blue and sheer fabric! Give your hair that famous side braid with a pretty clip, and simple sparkly shoes! You will rule all of Arendelle, or the ballroom in this case. 

You don't be sleeping beauty at this party! Aurora seems like the most simple of the actual princesses. She seems like the girl who can wear a short dress to prom and rock it because of her classic taste. Another blue number, the applique on either side of the dress gives off the royal vibes. It's the little things that matter, like the scalloped edges of the sparkly heels and the tiny bells in the hairband. A simple prom look that will earn you respect and top of the best dressed list without being flashy! 

Pocahontas is my girl. Out of all the female figures in the Disney realm, I have always looked up to Pocahontas; a free spirit and beauty inside and out. I took some inspiration from a bohemian look, and found is amazing ruffle dress, with a lot of drape, meaning a lot of freedom for the body! Add a turquoise necklace to match Pocahontas's, color up your nails like her tattoo, and add some simple silver strap heels. But at one point of the night, you'll end up barefoot like she is. 

1. HAIR // 2. NECKLACE // 3. DRESS // 4. SHOES
Our little dreamer! Rapunzel seems to signify the most youth out of all the girls and I love that. First off, you won't be much of a Rapunzel without your braided hair and flowers, glammed up with some beaded bobby pins. It's a must! As for the dress, stick with the lighter purples to represent her bright attitude! Add a sunburst symbol in your jewelry to rep your kingdom and strappy jeweled heels to perfect your look!
Liked my Disney inspired boards? Want me to make a look from your favorite princess? Let me know in the comments below!

P.S. I know, I'm horrible and have been off the blogisphere for FOREVER. I just got a job and am adjusting to dealing with that and school work at the moment. I'm really enjoying myself but don't think I didn't forget out The Deathly Fashion! xo

Pop of Pink

Beanie - Cotton On// Crop Sweater - Nordstrom// Pants - Marshalls// Skull Kimono - Sister's Etsy Shop// Backpack - LesportSac// Slip ons - Aldo Shoes

I'm really feeling this hair for beanie-wear. I bought this on a limb at Cotton On during the holidays and couldn't resist the cute pink and heart, I was bound to wear it some day. I thought this was the perfect day with my very dark outfit. I basically put all my favorite things together: my ultra comfy harem pants, skull kimono my sister made me, crop sweater with textured polkas, ALDO slip-ons and my bright pink beanie. This hair is just giving me all sorts of vibes! I swear the day after this, I was in a plaid mini skirt and a high pony-tail. Gotta love the magic of clothing.
