Holiday Outfits 2016

During this time of the year, it is always hard to figure out what to wear to holiday parties and different events. I have created a few outfits that I would wear to celebrate the holiday season! I hope you will be inspired by these as well.

The dress is involves on of the trendy fabrics of the season, velvet. I love velvets especially when they are a garnet color, I am also a huge fan of the leather collar. The leather collar has a cut out to give it an edgy feel. I wanted to match the color to the shoes and the bag soI decided to pair more black leather with the outfit. The shoes are my absolute favorite as they have a chunky heel. I wanted to add a cute plaid scarf along with sparkly eyeshadow with a plain lip.

This outfit is rather glamorous and bombshell like. I love this pale pink because it is easy to add statement pieces of it. Hip hugging and body con dresses are a major trend of the season. I absolutely love this fur coat, faux fur of course, as it gives it a diva feel. I paired it with red pieces because it represents that holiday colors along with making the outfit more dramatic.

You don’t always have wear a one piece to dress up. I paired this velvet tank with this leather skirt with the most amazing design at the bottom of the skirt. I wanted to have the focus more on the top so I decided to make everything black or a neutral color. A teased ponytail would make this outfit feel more edgy.

There is always the one to dress up a bit girly like, including me sometimes, so I decided to add gold and soft pink tones. I love the design of the dress and the bag can help provide comfort by adding a few pick me ups or hide a little emergency kit if there is a wardrobe malfunction. I absolutely love the hair style because it is not too much and the eye shadow has more of a bronzy tone to it.
I hope you all had a nice holiday season and happy new year! Let’s hope 2017 is even better!

Trend Alert: Off the Shoulder

One of my favorite trends right now is the off the shoulder look. I find this look to be sophisticated yet edgy at the same time. Shoulders have been considered scandalous, mostly at my school, for the longest time and it is time to show some skin.

Burnt orange is a big color for the summer and this outfit reminds me of something that I would wear if I was visiting a beach in another country. I like adding a few pieces of jewelry so the focus is not taken away from the dress. I love the hat how it adds a bit of a bohemian touch to it so I decided to add a bag and shoes to match it.

This is a different type of style, known as the ‘cold shoulder’. I love the top of the dress it is quite different with unique colors. I like to match shoes with the bags. I imagine this dress being worn on the islands of Greece just enjoying the view. With a high ponytail, the hoop earrings will look amazing with the outfit.

 This look is a bit edgy with the ripped shorts and the black shoes. This is something that I might possibly wear to a music festival or just a night out to town. I love the top with the lacey details as it contrasts with the rest of the outfit to give it a soft touch.

 This outfit is also different as the off the shoulder trend is on a romper. I love the bright colors that are perfect for spring and summer, especially the blue is huge for the season. I love blue and to be able to add color to this outfit, it creates the perfect touch. Since the shoes have gold metal, I decided to add a few pieces of accessories that match the metals. The beach hat also adds a fun touch to it.

This a casual outfit where the floral top juxtaposes distressed boyfriend jeans. I added espadrilles because they are easy and fun to wear. Espadrilles are the perfect summer shoes because they do not have to horrible to wear in such hot conditions.
I absolutely love this trend and you will be able to find similar items at Urban Outfitters, Zara, Forever 21 and many more!

Prom 2016

High school has finally ended for me, so despite my busy schedule I had one last hurrah with my friends at prom. I knew there was a lot of hype around prom but I went in with an open mind and I had one of the best nights.

I had gone with a date, who I had asked, but it is perfectly fine going with just friends and not with a date. The whole date concept is something that is implanted in our heads so I thought it would be better to go with a good friend of mine to have fun one night before I leave for school.

My track teammate mentioned I looked like Angelina Jolie in my dress and I literally died! After a fun night at prom we ended up at a burger joint by my school known as Steak and Shake where we pretended to be rich people who wear such clothing as an everyday thing. Although my feet did hurt, I could not have asked for anything else. I am going to miss everyone next year.

First Day of Work | OOTD

Processed with VSCOcam with m5 presetThe other day I had started my first day of work and let me say, I was completely out of my comfort zone. Personally, sometimes I do not know what I am supposed to do but good thing I am getting help from others as work continues. Surprisingly I did returns, rung up others and many things I did not know before I started. I hope I learn and become a better sales person to eventually hopefully own my own store.

2015-07-13 22.33.27This is just the start of something new (High School Musical feels).

I personally feel like Zendaya in this outfit (also I had wanted to added a bun but my hair was not being nice). My top was tight and an easy essential to add a simple piece to an outfit. A black top will pretty much go with anything to make you feel like Audrey Hepburn. I absolutely love this skirt I took from my mom’s closet as it had a slit, making me feel like Angelina Jolie, I tried her pose but was rather unsuccessful. It can make a simple outfit more chic.

Fool’s Gold | OOTD

Today is like my 10th snow day and I have put an outfit together, took okay pictures and filmed a video and it is 11:30 am. This has been the most productive morning for a while and I felt like Christie’s Closet for some weird reason. Maybe because I was playing around with my clothes.
