Show Me!

Jacket: G.E.T (sold out) Crop Top: Tobi Jeans: H&M Shoes: Nike x PRS (nike store) Sunglasses: Brave Heart Collection

   Remember when you wanted to switch your style up? Most people know I am a heels and pencil skirt type of girl majority of the time but as I said before I've been letting my inner tomboy out lately. Starting with my shoes, I had these Nike x PRS sitting in my closet for a month or so and I was just waiting to wear them. Everything is from my closet except for the sunglasses from brave heart collection. The jeans ripped a little bit when I was moving some furniture but instead of crying about it I took it as an opportunity to cut them up and I'm pleased with how the jeans turned out.  Another mission I have been on lately is, "Getting the look for less". I bought the rose bud sunglasses from brave heart collection for $25.00 and they look like the Prada sunglasses like what a steal! As a blogger I am trying to be aware of my audience and realize that everyone does not have $300-400 dollars for Prada sunglasses. I'm trying to always make sure I show how to get the look for less more. Nevertheless I enjoyed this shoot and it definitely is one of my favorites.

Good As Gold

Blazer: Ralph Lauren T-Shirt: Express Denim: American Eagle Tennis Shoes: Ralph Lauren Accessories: TopShop

   I've been in the mood to be a little more tomboyish lately, I'm talking tennis shoes, hair tied, blazers etc. I feel this outfit is a different type of edge but it still remains feminine at the same time. I love the shoes I bought from Ralph Lauren! They are perfectly gold and as soon as I seen them I jumped on them immediately. It was crazy how fast I whipped out my debit card to buy them. I have been in need of some awesome new pieces to bring to the closet. I also purchased the blazer from Ralph and looking back I made a smart decision! The blazer is so soft but it still has weight to it without being heavy. I wanted some ripped up denim and I just so happened to have a pair on stand by; lucky me.

  As you all know I have been trying to shop my closet a little bit more. I think I did a great job. The t-shirt and jeans were old, the blazer and sneakers were new. Learning to reuse what I have and colliding it with my new pieces. I'm trying to bring in the spring just right!

All Tied Up with Shirts









Photos by: Leland Stanford
As of lately Chicago has been so cold, mucky, and yucky! But yesterday it was 45° outside so, of course I had to go enjoy the weather. Due to short notice for my Chipotle run I was in a crunch for what to wear. I was very frustrated because everything I put on was just like, NO! NO! NO! NO! So I finally took my own previous advice from one of my previous post and I shopped my closet.

I took two of my striped buttoned down Ralph Lauren shirt and made them become a temporary skirt. I found my faithful H&M white stretch tee that was perfectly stuffed at the bottom of my draw. It was so wrinkled, thank God for irons.  I placed my Ralph Lauren belt around the shirt skirt so wouldn't have to worry about it moving and I thought it added a Roman gladiator vibe. For accessories I borrowed my best friend necklace, which fit in perfectly with my relax gold vibe. My booties I hardly ever wear and I don't know why because whenever I wear them I'm always thinking,"Hm, why don't I wear these more often? I really like them." For makeup I went simple with an Egyptian inspired eye look with Nyx liquid eyeliner and a soft pink lip "Amplified"  by Mac Cosmetics. 

I find the problem with my closet and maybe yours is perhaps we need to take the time to perceive our clothes differently. Some items in your closet have more than one function. Think about what you can revamp in your closet. Before you throw it away experiment. See what DIY are out there to create a new look. You be surprised how easy it is to revive old clothes and make them feel and look brand new. Most of the items I have revamped I have tended to like better than when I went and purchased.

"Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others." -Johnathan Swift

Since the New Year has been in I have been trying to focus on what life will bring me after college. I have been finding myself in one if not all of these three emotions, frustrated, optimistic, or confused. I'm in Chicago right now and I'm torn between moving to Los Angeles or New York after college. As of recently I have done some soul searching and prayed to God and I'm going to make the best decision I can when the time comes.

I think we are all scared of making the wrong mistake, well at least I am. But, I have realized that there is strength in not always getting it right. Being wrong make us appreciates the rights and stops us from being bored with ourselves. I have realized that sometimes we put a right or wrong value on decisions to quickly. 

All I'm saying is sometimes the beauty of something is merely in TRYING.

Now... for this shoot I tried something a little different I went to an Art Gallery and took my 70's scuba vibe dress in there with me. I felt like reflecting and thinking critically so what better place to do that but in art gallery. An art gallery is a place where not everything is handed to you but more so abstract, perceptual, and engaging to the mind. 

Of course I couldn't take all my pictures inside so I did a few outdoors but I wanted to capture the essence of images that spoke to me as well as showing a different side of myself.
