Fancy Muscles Tees | OOTD

Processed with VSCOcam with m5 preset

Muscle Tees are major summer trend due to the hot weather of course. For my fashion sense, I either look like I did nothing at all or a little too much so I decided to not always wear shorts with my tee. I loved the tee as it has a cute list of some of my favorite things and of course it is a pretty color. I have been eyeing this skirt for a while as the purple colors and the pink that matches my top. It is kinda short on me as it is too small around my hips but pulling it up to my waist works. Nothing is ever too small or too big.

If you want to dress up your muscle tee, pair it with a skirt or over a dress. Boyfriend jeans can help as well to make it a cool casual look.

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.

Single Girls Valentine’s Day Present

As Valentine’s Day is coming closer and every couple has been sucking face, it comes down to those who will sadly not be receiving and chocolate or flowers tomorrow. For those who are not going to receive a treat from anyone, why not have a treat for yourself?

I am a girl who loves Gossip Girl, like most girls. For Christmas, I got a Chuck Bass sweater and for Valentine’s Day, Mr. Ed Westwick himself is releasing a t-shirt with him most famous line.

I cannot wait to receive this shirt! I love the sweater and I hope you guys will buy this beautiful person as well! Buy this shirt here!

Just because you don’t have a boy to share the love with, loving yourself is way more important. Treat yourself with anything and remember it is just another day.

My Girl Marilyn | OOTD

Don’t you ever have that time when you feel like dressing like a skater girl? I do! I recently bought this Marilyn Monroe t-shirt from Forever 21 (it was hard to choose between the Audrey Hepburn one as well. I have too many Audrey Hepburn things).I thought this outfit was rather different and made me feel like I should have a penny board. Yeah, I know I’m not cool. Haha.

Georgetown Loving

During Easter last week, my family and I decided to pack everyone into the car (mom, dad and my two brothers) and head down for the up to an hour drive to Georgetown, Washington D.C. I was super excited because MAYBE I could get to meet my favorite band as they were performing not so far from D.C., but sadly they were still in the city they performed the night before :(. Other than that, I actually had a beautiful walk around Georgetown including buying a cropped sweater at H&M!

I love the record players because like they are so adorable and everyone should have at least one record in their house if they feel like being artsy.

Sibling Portrait

I absolutely love the elegance of the town, the white bricks and (though I have not toured the University yet) Georgetown University looked like a real life Hogwarts. I would love to live here because it is so pleasant, I am saying this out of experience but it is amazing there that I cannot wait to go back again!

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.
