Outfits of the Week: Week 7

What a week it has been! So many things are happening in the world and I cannot help but feel pretty useless just watching the news on TV. We have the wildfires in California, we have many of our government officials in Puerto Rico trying to pick up what Maria left behind, we have the mourning from the Las Vegas shooting, and the Harvey Weinstein news that makes me sick. Then we have our own personal lives. Whether it’s work, school, relationships or setbacks, life is just happening and nothing is going to stop it. I could have easily curled up in a ball after enduring everything I saw on the news, hearing about my boyfriend’s car window being hit with a bb gun and needing to be replaced, getting frustrated at work, overwhelmed with homework and feeling like I may be spreading myself out too thin, but the quickest way for me to instantly feel better is the way that I dress.

I may be struggling and be under a lot of pressure, but as long as my outfit is okay, I will be too. Here are the outfits of the week!

Monday: Denim Vest: Thrifted, Tank top: Macy’s, Skirt: Charlotte Russe, Shoes: Dillards, brand is Gianni Bini

Tuesday: I did not get to take a photo of my outfit since this is the day my boyfriend’s car window needed to be repaired. 😦

Wednesday’s Outfit: Pink lace blouse: Wetseal, Denim: Express, Boots: Dillards, brand is Gianni Bini

This blouse received a lot of compliments. I used to work at Wetseal and the company unfortunately went out of business about a year after I left. I have heard that they are coming back, but have not seen anything yet! It was one of my favorite stores and it will be missed greatly. I wear these jeans so much because the distress in them is subtle and the was is unique. The boots are a great fit for this outfit because I did not want to wear black shoes, but still needed a neutral shoe to go along with my outfit. These were perfect!

Outfits of The Week: Part 6

Hello everyone! Welcome back to my blog! It’s about that time where we reflect on the outfits worn this week so let’s get started!

Monday- This skeleton shirt is from Target and of course I was sporting a Halloween inspired shirt to kick off my week. Even though the weather here is all over the place, I am still trying to get into the Halloween spirit and get ready for fall. I paired this blouse with some faded purple pants and wore some grey shoes from Shoedazzle to top it all off.

Tuesday- For Tuesday I wore a burgundy skirt, also from Target, and decided to pair it with black tights, boots and blouse. Since red is my favorite color, I decided that I would wear red lipstick and a red rose necklace that I got from Hottopic several years ago. The skirt is a soft suede material and I love that the studded pocket detail gives it a vintage-y look to it. The necklace also looks like it would have been worn in medieval times, while the rest of this outfit was kept pretty modern. This outfit was my favorite one from this whole week.

Wednesday- You know I love my high-waisted jeans from Fashion Nova. I wore high-waisted jeans by them on both Wednesday and Thursday because they are the best pants ever! I wanted to look put-together yet stay comfortable on this day so I wore some comfortable flats and layered a skull kimono I got from Hottopic, over a simple black tank-top. Still in that Halloween spirit!

Thursday- Thursday is usually my most casual day out of the week as far as outfits go because this is usually my longest day and I cannot afford to have any wardrobe malfunctions interfering me. Simple does not have to be boring though! Luckily bright colored tops with lace detail can save the day! Now-a-days even sneakers are fashionable. I love these sneakers from Steve Madden. I have also worn them in one of my previous ‘Outfits of the week’ blog posts so I’m sure they look very familiar.

Each week continues to fly by so fast! I am pleased to say that I am surviving my classes and slowly but surely learning how to edit videos. I am very excited to see things come together! Let me know which outfit was your favorite!

Have a great weekend and stay stylish!

Things To Come

I’ve really missed blogging on here on a daily basis, but I know that this change was necessary in order for me to continue to grow in my fashion endeavors. Today’s blog is going to be a simple update on my whereabouts and I am currently working my butt off with being a full-time student and part time employee, but these things all make me want to try harder at being great at what I do and what I want to do is share my enthusiasm for fashion with others who feel the same way that I do. I am expanding my horizons by learning how to film and edit videos, become more comfortable in front of the camera during photo shoots, and just generally be more involved. I am doing these things on top of work, homework and studying, but just because this is challenging, it does not mean that it is impossible.

video editing

These goals are difficult and yes, I find myself getting frustrated when things do not seem like they are going well and I feel like no progress is being made, but great things do not happen overnight. I am still trying my hardest to be patient.

I am in the process of trying to learn how to film and edit videos so that I can start my own YouTube channel that revolves around fashion and who knows, maybe makeup every once in a while. I am using Halloween as an opportunity to recreate some costumes and makeup looks and I am pretty much filming the process so I can show you guys. I am planning on doing a total of 4 or 5 different characters so as soon as the weather here gets a whole lot better, I will be doing many photo shoots and videos. I really hope it all comes together in the end and I really hope that this endeavor will take me far.

I am open to any advice or suggestions any of you guys have when it comes to photo shoots, filming or video editing, I am all ears and it’s much appreciated. This is all I have for you all for now, as soon as I get the first video up, I will let you all know!

Stay Stylish and Good Night!

Outfits: Week 4

Hello everyone! I have already completed a quarter of the Fall semester and cannot believe how fast time is flying by. The world of college is a fast-paced one! This week was a little different for me personally because my Monday class did not meet at my school, but instead took a trip to south side’s chamber of commerce were we had a conference with the chamber’s vice president. On this day, I dressed up a little more formal that I would’ve if I had gone to the classroom instead so as you will probably notice, I am wearing a pale peachy-pink blouse with a leopard printed skirt and some black flats. I took this picture right before I left work that day.

Tuesday also had a different schedule than usual since my second class got cancelled! I had a super short day and just went with the outfit that required less effort than usual and laid-back compared to how dressy I was the day before. Even though this outfit and simple makeup look took me about 10 minutes total, it’s still a super cute outfit and was my favorite one this whole week! You guys know I am a crazy cat lady! I am obviously super happy in this photo!

Caturday

Wednesday it was just a day with me and my boyfriend so I decided to go back to my dressed up self and decided to take on the world wearing my new favorite skirt from boohoo which you guys saw earlier this week!

Thursday…my school gave out free food. Brownies were involved. I am a messy eater. So I ended up getting chocolate on the original blouse I had which was a light blue color. Not cool. This is pretty much why I ended up going to Target because I wanted to get a different blouse. I found some pretty cool stuff on clearance and wore this new top happily as my original blouse paid a visit to the washing machine. The blouse I am wearing in this photo is one of the blouses I bought at Target and the leggings and lipstick shade make it perfectly suitable for a fall outfit. Happy Fall by the way!

This week was definitely more different than usual since I was only really at school Tuesday and Thursday, but if I only did two outfits, this blog would have been way too short! Up next on my blog is all things in celebration of CATURDAY!

Stay tuned and stay stylish!

A Great Shopping Day

I was not supposed to go shopping today, but when it came time to take a picture of today’s school outfit, I looked down at my blouse and saw that it had some chocolate stains on it from the free brownies my school gave out. I never say no to free food.

My boyfriend and I decided to make our way to Target and yes, my intention was to buy a top to wear instead of sporting chocolate stains on a light blue blouse. About an hour later into Target, I walked out with two tops, a dress and a skirt. I got all these items for under $40!

While at Target, I also noticed some cute styles that were calling my name. Target has been really stepping up their game! I walked out very impressed. So first off, everything I bought was from the clearance rack. Secondly, clearance items are my favorite!

In the images below are all the items I bought today while shopping at Target.

I spent a total of $38.34 on all four of these items. Just look at the receipt!

Yes, I am so aware of how wrinkly these clothes look, but I will iron them and model in them so you guys can have a better look at them! So what do you learn from reading today’s blog? Don’t dismiss the clearance section!

Stay stylish!

 

Never Say Never!

Can you recall a time where you said you would never wear something like that?

I remember all that time and laugh while shaking my head side-to-side in disbelief. I remember how not even a year ago I said that I would NEVER wear white pants or long pencil skirts. It’s funny how these items made their way into my closet. So what changed?

I began this fashion blog in order to give some outfit inspiration and talk about things relative in the fashion world that I hope is relateable and/or enjoyable to read.

Today I am going to show you some photos I took earlier today where I am wearing a long pencil skirt that I thought I would never, ever wear. So here it goes!

Everything in this outfit are all things that I said I would never wear!

Starting from the shoes, I remember how I said I would never wear shoes that showed my toes. I used to be self-conscious about my toes because of how little they were. My pinky toe is so small, the nail looks like it’s hardly there when I cut my nails!

The skirt, as I mentioned earlier, was that long pencil skirt that I said I would never wear yet this snakeskin one from Boohoo is my favorite! I love skirts, but long length skirts and dresses always intimidated me because I am a short person (5 ft. 2 in) and I felt that I could not pull it off. I think this skirt is very figure flattering and I am really thinking of getting another skirt like this.

The top is a band top! I LOVE band shirts, but I recall a time where I only wanted to wear a band shirt if it was a t-shirt. I used to hate tank tops. I didn’t want to be showing my arms. I had twig arms my whole life and I felt weak. I wouldn’t leave the house in a tank top or in a sleeveless blouse because I didn’t like the way my arms looked.

The choker necklace is also something I thought I wouldn’t wear. I always thought that it looked like a had a collar like my pet cat or something, but the choker necklaces I am seeing everywhere are so cute! I’m obsessed!

Never say never to things without giving them a try. You’ll be surprised to see what actually looks good on you! Keep an open mind and stay stylish! 😉
