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.

Aliens, Miniskirts, Hair

T-Shirt - Brandy Melville// Skirt - Modern Amusement// Belt - Gifted// Shoes - Aldo Shoes// Bag - Michael Kors// Watch - Betsey Johnson// Sunnies - Michael Kors

I did it everyone. I cut my hair. Godric I feel so different, but of course in the best way possible. It was a really easy decision about cutting my hair - one day I just told myself "hey I think I should cut my hair" then bam got it cut within that week. No stress, no second thoughts. I just did it and I love it. Aside from the haircut, my sister decided to get me a Valentine's Day present, which was this lovely simple black pocket t-shirt from Brandy Melville featuring a tiny alien. She thought it was pretty appropriate to buy me since the emoji next to my name on her contacts is the alien one. Such a great staple that just tells a tiny bit about yourself! I know NYFW just ended and boy do I have some catching up to do. First grip of exams are upon us and as always, school comes first. So until then, stay fabulous!

Small Adventures Count Too

Jacket - Courtesy of my dad// Sweatshirt - Target// Denim - Current/Elliot// Watch - Betsey Johnson// Slip Ons - Aldo// Necklace - Love Culture
Oh gosh, I wear variations of this outfit all the time really, but never had a chance to document my everyday uniform. Nothing like making a statement with pink denim, and fortunately they are my most comfortable pair of bottoms I own. I wore this on a quick outing to drop my dog off at the groomers and stroll around Disneyland for an hour or two until he was done (Lucky the grooming place is so close, right?). It was windy and gloomy that day so I put on my trusty multi-washed denim jacket courtesy of my dad (Yes folks, my dad) circa 1985, Madonna and Cyndi Lauper pins included. Surprisingly the jacket fits perfectly so it screams for me to wear it a good portion of the week. I just love it so much. Also, I just purchased this rad black quilted sweatshirt with rad hidden pockets from Target. I've never bought clothing from them before, aside from designer collabs, and I'm pretty happy with it. Just adding another great staple to my wardrobe! Now back to endless hours hitting the books and getting distracted by snapchats and fashion week.

Red Carpet Personas feat. Haute Couture Spring 2014

Back on my runway game and I have been studying the haute couture collections like it's a final for my Philosophy class. What I love about this time of the year is the fact that it's a HUGE red carpet season as well, and then I think, is it fate? Do the award shows schedule around the time between Spring Haute Couture? I mean everything should revolve around fashion though, right? 
Thought I might take some of my favorite looks from the haute couture spring 2014 shows that are red carpet worthy (AKA Oscar's worthy, really) and fit them into the categories of the princess, the sexy one, and the risk taker, and I also added in some dresses in there that I just want to know the publics' opinion about. What do you all think?

Always love this category, as out of the three I would put myself in the Princess area (no less from a Disney fanatic). I see that a lot of celebrities love to "experiment" one time or two to wear a huge ball gown and try to remember their glass slipper at the end of the night. The top three selections totally fit the image of this persona but no one is hating. The mix of pinks and purples and draping of the sleeves, from the top left Elie Saab gown is everything of a punk princess, talk about best of both worlds. Aside from the voluminous dresses that define royalty (even though everyone there will be considered that in one way or another), I find that you can still show off your princess look in slim fitting dresses like the ones on the bottom panel. My favorite out of these would be the Oscar de la Renta number on the bottom left that combines a very simple fitting dress with a cape-like style (I think I love capes.)

Oh how I love the standout stars on the red carpet who take it a step further to make an iconic moment for themselves and their stylists. It may not be everyone's cup of tea but I'd love to see someone rock that trench coat dress we got going on from Zuhair Murad; I have faith. Also, let's add another member to cape town (Lupita Nyong'o in Ralph Lauren at the Golden Globes, yes?) with this standout piece from Alexis Mabille (bottom right).  But I have to say, my favorite is the bottom middle pick from Giambattista Valli, I'm a sucker for a voluminous rose colored skirt. 

It's sometimes hard to draw a line off what is appropriate and also sexy on the red carpet, as the Oscar's is a huge event. I felt like appropriate "sexy"was showing just a little bit of skin on the upper-body. All three were some of my general favorites from the season surprisingly, especially the white Vionnet number, love the extra drape atop the belt. 


So what do you all think of my red carpet picks from the Haute Couture shows from Spring? Which were your favs? 

Can't wait for the actual day! Who will be tuning in?
