Alis in 2013

I started this blog about early September of 2012 for a try in fashion and writing, I was not very into fashion back then but I wanted to see where it would lead me. I also had been writing poems, and reviews for my school newspaper that I dream of inspiring others through difficult times (but there is not that many posts about that on here).
Alis is like my name Elyse (A-lees) but I did not give that blog a name until later. It was actually the name the Starbucks person put on my first drink from there after I had freshmen orientation. I guess by ordering a drink from a popular place could lead into this, or it was the only idea I had to change my name. I had a blog post about the name change a while ago but I don’t feel like finding it oh well.
So as I sit here inside the little place where we are staying in the mountains of Colorado, while stars like Christina Aguilera, Shaun White and Leonardo DiCaprio are skiing (I’m literally sore from my lesson yesterday that I could not even walk back to the condo and I can barely even walk around, so don’t be like “girl what are you doing inside for writing this post about”) I would like to share my favorite posts of the year before 2013 closes.
I would like to saw thank you to everyone who has followed me, read my posts or get annoyed by my posts on instagram and twitter, you have made me all so happy as I have gotten over 2,160 + views and over 100 posts. A few websites have contacted with me about my outfits and I hope that soon, that you guys can get the courage to be my buddy (or not but that is perfectly cool because like, I really don’t know how to interact with others through online). Anyway, I should start rambling and share my favorite posts of the year that either inspire others or I absolutely loved the outfits, pictures or writings that I have shared with everyone of you!

I hope everyone of you has an awesome new year and hope 2014 treats us all well. I am currently in Colorado so I do not have any fancy as I did not think I should have brought something for New Years. So I might watch the fireworks in town or watch the Doctor Who episode that I have been trying to watch! Oh well, have a nice and safe New Year.

Christmas Haul

Hey everyone! I wanted to upload a post before I leave! I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and hope that Father Christmas treated you well! I won’t be able to update until after the New Year so I decided to show you guys what I got for Christmas. I would like to say that Christmas is about family and celebrating the birth of our Savoir (I respect that everyone believes in what they believe or not). But since this is a fashion account, I got a few fashion items!

015
The leather jacket is from American Eagle. It has a quilted pattern which is absolutely trendy!

017 018
My family knows how much I love photography so my mom got me a camera charm for a Fossil necklace that will come soon or I can use it for my Pandora bracelet.

020
I probably annoyed my mom about how much I wanted this book for the flight and I literally wanted to go to Anthropologie to use my gift card to use this Christmas Eve.

006 007 009

I literally thought this little jewelry holder is unique! It is like a weathervane. I have looked up this collection on PBTeen and I absoltely want everything from the Emily and Merrit Collection there! Everything is so magical and whimsical and ugh it is like killing me that I can’t get everything there!

I also got some sweets from Crate & Barrel (including a marshmallow snowman)! I guess I’ll wait until I get home to eat them!

When I get back I will probably have heaps of posts about my trip so stay tuned!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Rainy Lazy Day

It has been raining for the past two days and I have been lazy, you know just the usual. I have this obsession on wanting to update as often as I can, but I do not have ideas popping out like daisies, so I decided to do this little bit!

1. Watching Doctor Who and catch up on Bloglovin’
057
Since Matt Smith is leaving the show, I decided to watch most of the episodes he is in!

2. Try to take a picture with my brother and dog in front of the tree,

059
and have it not being as successful as I hoped.

065

3. Wishing I was at Hogwarts for Christmas

066
Yes that is my wallpaper and yes that is the 4, from like 4 years ago.

4. Turn on my Christmas tree for a little holiday spirit!

070

5. Wanting to read every fashion book I have but not wanting to at the same time.

069

6. Trying on eye shadow that I had for months but never really used it.

077 078 079 081
I used Impulse on my lids and added Glance on the bottom.
5. Pretending to be French while waiting to be picked up to go to mall also for Peter Pan to be on TV.

Monochrome-ing

Today is the part of the year where every girl wears heels and dresses that are not even on the dress code and boys wear Christmas themed ties and “handsome” shirts. It is the last day of school before the two week of Christmas break and literally there is no learning involved during this half day of school. Having fighting over wanting to wear my J. Crew wedges (which I should have brought to school) but I ended up wearing boots that make clicky clacky sounds down the hall.
Sorry for my awkward face.

Polyvore-mas 12/7-12/13

I have not been updating about my sets on Polyvore, which you totally should check out! I have been slowly getting better at putting these sets together and I want you guys to know what you think!

y
This is the kind of outfit to wear when you plan on being lazy, the only time I wear boots or Uggs is when I do not feel like being in the mood to tie my converses. I love the pattern on the pants and the robin egg color sweater is to die for!

y
I tried to mix up some patterns a little bit to make it more fall like. It would be a nice outfit to wear when going to the bookstore which is one of my favorite places to go to!

y
I absolutely adore these shorts from TopShop!

y
Mixing different patterns together makes everything so exciting!y
If you have not noticed, I am very into the black and white trend as shown above. And that is one of the reasons my friends believe I am the reincarnation of my fashion idol, Coco Chanel.

y
Tartan, oh my gosh tartan. It is everywhere and I cannot get enough! I literally love these shoes from TopShop and my best guy friend found this adorable beanie at Forever 21 in NYC.

y
Cool colors are beautiful when… well.. when it is cool. Adding a fierce edge with printed heels and oh my gosh the beautiful, I cried of perfection, wonderful, too expensive that it is making me cringe bag by Alexander McQueen (RIP you legend).

y
I noticed a teacher at my school wearing a beautiful outfit, I had to create it!

Hope to see you again before Christmas as I will be in Colorado for a while and probably won’t update until after! But I promise I’ll be back before than!
