Taking Flight | OOTD

Yesterday, my mom and I went to the mall to go job hunting and I went to Forever 21 and my mom noticed this dress. I fell in love with this blue dress. It is fun and whimsical with the bird pattern. The back is very unique and confusing to put on but I love the breezy feel to it.

As you can see, I cut my hair and I had wanted a change. I am so used to seeing girls with long hair so I decided to go against it. As you can see, my dog is also excited.

PS. my mom took these pictures so I trying to teach her how to.

Trend Alert: Winter Pastels

No one has to wear dull dark colors in the Winter anymore! Pastels may seem out of place in the upcoming cold seasons when they are more common for Spring and Summer. It gives this upcoming season full of life and much more to enjoy about shopping. Despite me wearing a lot of dark colors, I am excited for the beautiful pieces to style.

Here are a few of my favorite styles of the beautiful colors placed together.

Old Pieces | OOTD

 Ever since I was young, I always wore the same pieces together for the same outfit over and over again. I grew up, I still do that and always end up getting new pieces but nothing ever changes. When I started this blog, I was first starting out experimenting with outfits and I always thought buying new pieces of clothing was the answer. Not all the time. Yes, I will admit I am a shopaholic with sadly a small budget (I will get upset and not buy anything if I can’t get like 2 items I don’t know why but I need to stop that).

The idea came the other day when I wanted to do a back to school outfit ideas video for my YouTube. I went through different items in my closet until I found a dress and a jacket I had for maybe 3 or 4 years now. I remember having each of these items back in middle school, including my converse, and I was super excited to see what it would like together!

Dress: American Eagle | Jacket: unknown | Shoes: Converse

I remember when I got this jacket, I was in a fashion show for my finishing school and my class had the theme of safari. I think a green neutral jacket would be a better fit than the gray one. Having a shorter jacket without it being wide would work much better

I love this sundress it has a few different patterns, lace on the skirt and dots on the bustier. There is always different ways that one can dress down a sundress to 1. wear to school or 2. wear it during the fall time. If your dress code allow you to dresses, lucky! Here is an idea that if you need help thinking of what to wear, how about a pink dress, white converse, green jacket and you can also add a gold necklace.

Who knows maybe you can put together a few older pieces together to create a new favorite outfit!

New York, concrete jungles where dreams are made of

There is nothing you can’t do in New York

Yesterday I felt like Carrie Bradshaw on the streets of New York, amazed by the stores, inspired by the lights. I had went on a school like trip, it was not mandatory it was for those who wanted to go see a Broadway show. This great city is where I would love to move after high school to pursue a career in fashion, like writing for my most favorite magazine or hopefully creating clothes or putting an outfit together for someone on the red carpet.

But that is in a few more years… So here are some of the pictures I took yesterday. Sorry for my awkward face.

I was surprisingly sweating at 49 degrees, maybe because I’ve been living up north for 8 years or something.

It took me four floors and two times of going to Forever 21 to finally buy something in New York along with five other stores.

037Romeo and Juliet

Oh yeah can I officially say that I kinda met Bethany Mota, with someone that accidentally walked into the picture, sorry.

046We had pizza at John’s Pizzeria, which was decorated for Christmas. Surprisingly we were allowed to do whatever we wanted before the show so a couple of sixteen year olds walked the the streets of New York alone, during the almost “Christmas” season. It was awesome!

051I obviously had to go into the Disney store!

052 053 054 058
060As I left the theater to go back to the bus, a leaf fell onto my scarf. It made me smile because New York has been a home to me, with every time I go there, no matter how old I am, it gives me this sort of happiness that even though I am becoming older, my childhood is still with me. 

065The last glimpse of New York.

“you’re shining, like a 5th avenue diamond.
And they don’t make you like they you to
You’re never going out of style.”

So today as my mother and father have traveled to the wedding of my old babysitter’s (which I should be invited to) my aunt and her friend came to visit by taking me to a vintage shop.

I decided to dress up, as to me its casual but to others, wearing a dress is dressy. So I add a little crop top to make it simple.

072Like seriously I love these vintage finds! I got the coat in the first picture as it was cheaper than I thought it would be.
