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!

Target Finds | Sun Dresses

If you are currently experiencing a very dreary day filled with a mixture of snow and rain, like me, you are probably wishing it was summer. Although summer is not coming for another few months, it does not hurt to look at the pretty sun dresses that will be perfect for those few sunny spring days. Here a few of my favorite finds that I found online and in store.

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!

Review: One Direction Makeup*

They are known all over the world for being the popular X Factor boyband One Direction! They have sold millions of records, their own perfume, toothbrushes and now their own makeup collection. Having million girls loving these boys, they came together and brought something out that can fit the unique girls who are in love with the British/Irish band! Every girl has her own personality so reflect out through each set. Find your own way to show everyone who you are by experimenting with each different set! Make sure you check out the “Take Me Home” and “Midnight Memories” set and see how you can stand out of the crowd. The collection have received was called “Up All Night”, a very bright, colorful, party makeup.

 IMG_3163

The makeup was absolutely fun to play with including a few messy mishaps all over my hands which will be included in a video. As you can see in the picture below, there are a lot of bright colors and a small little lookbook on how to put the eyeshadow on.

I LOVE this mascara, I have been wearing it ever since it came in the mail and I even brought it to dance camp. Even my mom loves to wear it! It is much better than the drugstore types. Unlike the drugstore mascaras, they do not clump on your lashes and when I put them on my bottom lashes, they don’t stand out so much.

I love these colors! The blue eye shadows are bright and go on rather smoothly. The sparkles are pretty but make sure you put on a few layers of it or it won’t be noticed. I used the skin color to outline my eyebrow bone and the light blue to outline my eye and on the corner of my eyelid. I added the sparkle shadow also on the corner and I thought it was a fun look.

I swear every time I test out the eyeliner on my skin, it is hard to take off! It is a good type of eyeliner that will stay on all day and night for a dark look. I love putting on eyeliner on my bottom lashes instead of my top and maybe you can try that some time!
IMG_3171
This pastel pink lipstick, by the name “I Should Have Kissed You”, is not just great for a night look. Put it on during the day to a edgier outfit to make it more girly or play it up with a dress. This lipstick makes me feel like a total girly girl and it is just so much fun to wear!
IMG_3172
Who doesn’t want a little hot pink lipstain? Personally, I can not wear this lip product as my skin is a color that makes it look weird on me. If you don’t want the whole va va voom factor on, which includes sparkles, I insist putting on “I Should Have Kissed You” first and applying this second. Also the cool thing is that this lipstain glows underneath UV lights!
IMG_3173
I swear this color is so much fun! “Na Na Na” is a medium with a few sparkles that can give off a fun look without going too crazy! I swear you can wear this color any time of the year and it will perfectly work! This my “back to school” nail polish must have!
IMG_3174
Who doesn’t have to draw on their body? If you want to spice up your look, try out the stencils which include so many fun designs. In my experience with these, I suggest using the blue eyeshadows instead of the eyeliner which I used. The big mistake I did was use the eyeliner and that kind of got messy! So try something that doesn’t get all over the place!

Fabuleuse

Hello everyone! As I am currently writing a very deeply written post of a Disney character for my 150th post OMG! I thought why not do a post on an outfit that I put together not so long ago. As you guys know, I kind of dress up whenever I go to the mall! I really don’t know why I do but I did! So other than the mall I also wore my outfit in the  latest YouTube video which I still need to edit.

Fabuleuse also the word for Fabulous in French. Oh me and my French. I recently bought this cropped sweater at H&M as my limit when we had gone to Georgetown, yes sadly I am not those bloggers who can buy everything they can. I seriously have a problem shopping because I seriously cannot just buy one thing and I also have to think how or where I would wear it and if it is appropriate for school! So much stress! I have recently loved the trend of crop tops because recently I have started loving my body no matter how oddly shaped it is and I do not care if I show a little skin! I barely ever have my hair in a braid and I am not really into a lot of different hairstyles because my hair is short and won’t do what I want. But I thought why not tried a braid, and I finally made one after like seven different failed times. Also I have decided to try something new with my eyeliner that I had for awhile now. I am not an eyeliner person because I can’t really put it on like everyone can and it frustrates me so I decided why not try the bottom lid. I absolutely love how its different and I am super excited for that but excuse my awkward face because like the sun was kind of shining in my eyes!

Glitter Lips

Hey everyone! The other day I filmed a short video that I have been wanting to do for a while now. Over the summer, I found a new way to play with my lips. I absolutely love it but since I am supposed to wear subtle makeup to school (well others don’t even try to be simple) I have not tried this makeup look for a while. I am super excited that I learned how to edit, still trying to make it better, and also super excited for this new video!

Above is the finished look, you can barely see it with the edit but I hope you watch so you have a new way to spice up your lips along with seeing how weird I am. This is my first tutorial, I guess, and let me know what you think!
