New Years Dancing | OOTD

Happy almost 2015! I recently made a video (which you can find below) with hair, and outfit ideas for New Years Eve. This is my absolute favorite out of the two outfits and I was so pleased with my hair that even while I was filming I was ‘Oh my gosh! I did that!’.

Here comes my awkward faces!

I did not notice that I had the headband like that!

I bought this dress Sophomore year hoping to wearing it to homecoming, but ended up not to. I have had this in my closet for a year and I have been wanting to wear it to. I love how the black dress has a simple flirty skirt and at the top it is sheer with black polka dots giving it a rather feminine and fun touch to the dress. The headband is gold with pearl and it gave the outfit a nice touch of color. I wear black so much that I never add a dash of color. I am also wearing my nude heels so it doesn’t distract so much from the outfit.

Dress: H&M | Headband: Forever 21 | Shoes: Lord & Taylor

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.

How to Style a Puffy Jacket

Today, where I live is about to be hit with a winter storm. I am obviously procrastinating with math homework and decided to go outside in the snow to take pictures! I have been thinking of different outfits to style with this puffy jacket from H&M.013 014 016
Sweater: Nordstrom

I thought of a Christmas party look as well. I recommend not wearing heels in the snow, I was slipping and so close to falling down, but I surprisingly did not. And I did not notice how short the dress was, but I was not cold at all.

Dress: H&M
Shoes: DSW

Homecoming 2013

Homecoming has officially come and gone with the longest Spirit Week ever and I am officially exhausted. It consisted of these guys annoying me, a teacher pretty much hurting his leg at the pep rally and having to be rolled out, having dance practice all week, feeling sick for the past few days, dancing at the game which we won 35-34 and I can’t not wait until I am able to sleep in but can’t since I have an Italian family and they are absolutely loud as a vacuum close to my ear.

Last night I had my Homecoming dance as earlier it took me a while to find the perfect shoes and a necklace to match. I literally took my shoes off within the first five minutes as I was jealous of a friend of mine wearing Converses -_-.

I thought I would make this into an Audrey Hepburn inspired outfit! I did not use the necklace that I got earlier since I thought pearls fit more.
Dress: Bloomingdales Shoes: Aldo Necklace: Mom’s closet (literally my mom’s closet)

I did not have as fun as I hoped because 1. I can’t dance to their music that they played 2. it was really awkward, I don’t know why though! So yeah I had gotten that Nasty Gal dress from a few post ago but I felt very self conscious so I had to send it back.
