Deep breath in the mirror

T-Shirt - Nordstrom's Rack// Faux Leather Skirt - eBay// sneaker wedges - eBay// Necklace - Forever 21// Watch - Betsey Johnson// red wrap - Nordstrom's Rack

So I either start off my 'graphs with school or how horrible/confusing this weather is in Cali. Now I'm gonna start off with my fun experiences on eBay! Yay! After loading up on the Poshmark App. funds and trying to stretch my dollar I, of course, looked to eBay. A long time admirer of well priced clothes + free shipping (thought it takes forevs) I finally gave in. I bought the faux leather skater skirt for a mere $11 and it's the shortest skirt I own! There goes the risks of buying on eBay from a totally different country BUT, I still love it. The other purchase that might make some bloggers cringe are Inspired Isabel Marant's Betty sneaker wedges. I know, I know, but I had to. If you follow me on tumblr then you know I've wanted these for over a year!(Can you believe I still wanted them too? They are a perfect modern/hip staple) They sell for about $70 (shipping included) on eBay but I found a lovely user who was re-selling them, unworn, due to a shoe size problem for only $25 (with expedite shipping!!). And I am glad to say they fit me perfectly and I wear them probably 5 days out of the week. Not sure if they are still even on trend, but here at the Deathly Fashion, I wear what I want to, trend or not

In other news, anyone pick up Tay Swift's new album, RED? Two fav songs off of it are Begin Again and 22. Just putting that out there. 

Enjoy the week, loves!

NAVEN FASHION SHOW EXPERIENCE

So I'm in hiatus heaven much? Sorry about that, so much going on and so little time. But I'm back and here to tell you about the awesomesauce experience I had at the NAVEN fashion show at Siren Studios during LA Fashion Week on October 16, 2012. 


So let me just note that this wouldn't be a possible experience for me if it wasn't for the amazing Kelsey from Runaway In LA. Seriously, her blog is the koala-tea of quality blogs if you get my play on words. She has true talent and will definitely go far in whatever she plans to. Love you girl, I had a great time with you!


The Style Club LA, an  upcoming online fashion community where you can talk, share, and discover everything fashion with friends and celebs, was so kind to allow me to tag along with Kelsey to the NAVEN Fashion Show which, may I add, was on a school night. (You can only imagine the time I had at school the next day) Our job was to work as camera reporters and interview celebs and the hottest people. Faces like Jillian Rose Reed from MTV's Awkward and Samuel Larsen from Glee had me starstruck. Can't wait to see how my face looks while interviewing Samuel Larsen - most likely it will be a 'I'm trying so hard not to fan-girl right now' face. Others who were at the event were Hanna Beth, Taylor Spreitler from ABC Family's Melissa and Joey, Nick Simmons, Debby Ryan, Kym Johnson, and more!


My first fashion show, even though I was standing on my tip-toes trying to get a good view, was ultimately everything I dreamed of. The theme of it was Candy Land, which resulted in free candy plus Kelsey  and me in pastel colors. NAVEN showed sexy and simple cuts, an amazing digital butterfly print on a long maxi, and my favorite - a mint colored quilted leather jacket, beyond amazing. The runway was even graced by America's Next Top Model's Allison Harvard. Like experiences I've had watching runway shows via internet I expected the show to feel short, which is ironic because you wait about 2 hours at the showcase until it starts. 


Nonetheless the show was amazing and I had a great time interviewing the guests as well. This experience and opportunity was so rare for a rookie blogger like me, so I cherished every moment of it. It was a great peak into the industry I will one day be working in and let me tell you - it was confirmation that this is what I want to do. Which is perfect time because college applications are happening right now! 

Me and Kelsey 
Dress: Boutique from the Del Amo Fashion Center// Heels: B. Makowsky// Clutch: Urban Outfitters// Necklace + Bangles: Forever 21//

 Scored some free goodies after the show including NYX products, a NAVEN tank top and skirt, UNITE 7 Second Conditioner (In love with this), and The Style Club Stickers!

So sorry for the hiatus again, but I hope you enjoyed reading this experience that I got to share with you all! Thanks so much to The Style Club and Kelsey from Runaway In LA!
