Bleached Bombshell

Ending 2016 fiercely, is a great way to start off the new year! This look was inspired by the countless bleached tee’s. An amazing trip to the thrift store is where I found this “Back to the Future” shirt, and of course with me being an 80’s baby it had to be mine. I customized this shirt by cutting it like a V-neck, yet leaving the collar to give a choker effect. Then I bleached the shirt in random places, and cut different variations of slashes and holes in it. Unexpectedly the shirt bleached into various hues of grey which made it that more unique, and right away I knew the perfect jacket to pair it with. PAM & GELA are very unique designers, because I have never saw a motorcycle jacket so detailed perfectly. They didn't over do it, they did just enough for you to really gaze at the jacket and say “WOW NOW THATS A LEATHER JACKET!”. The coat and shirt were the eyecatchers of this outfit so pairing it with all black balances the fit, but to continue the edgy vibe I finished the look with some chunky bold platforms.

The Everyday!

Lately there's been a flouring trend, of pairing street style with edgy chic. I was never the type to pull out a pair of sneakers, but sneakers must be getting cuter or this trend is just making them look cuter either way I'm loving it. Now we can showcase our fashionable side and still be incredibly comfortable. For this outfit I decided another “simplicity at its finest look”, where I have the simple T-shirt dress, with a polka dot fitted cap. Then for my shoe choice I went with the classic all white shell toe Adidas and my choice of pop was that bomb lavender fur bag! Topshop is on a roll, this bag had lavender fur with gold trimmings and a gold chain like strap, it was one of those gasping moments when you feel like you just hit the lottery. Plus you can never go wrong with a pop of FUR! A perfect look for any laid back occasion.

The Prairie Gal


I always find it innovative when a brand can successfully combine two eras into one garment. Something about this dress made me think of “the little house on the prairie”, from the high neckline to the long sleeves and the floral print this was old meets new and I fell in love. Topshop really made this dress appealing to the young eye with the lace up in the midsection and the deep slits on each side of the dress. I paired it with a boat hat and a bomb lace up chunky sandal to give a even more edgy look. When you have an overpowering print like this one there's really no need for a bunch of accessories the dress is your attention grabber already. Great job, Topshop!

Even though I love being overdramatic through dress, you don't always have to be. Sometimes the best outfits are the most effortless. I like to call this “Simplicity at its Finest”! It’s the ability to put a few simple items together without trying to be extra yet through the midst of it all you actually just put together one of your best outfits. We've all seen the uprising trend on basics, which has made staple items more and more trendy to have. This denim jumpsuit is simple, yet versatile since you can achieve so many different looks through it! I loved the light blue wash of it, and it was also extremely comfortable. These white mules are also another basic that's versatile, and they gave you a little edginess with the clear strap in the front. I think this a perfect look to go out to brunch with bae!

Unbelievable Jumpsuit

Usually when I imagine a jumpsuit I think of something casual but this jumpsuit was the absolute opposite. I was attracted to the sharp precise cuts on it! It gave you amazing cleavage but not to much which makes this look versatile. The belt is conveniently adjustable which makes it so easy to  accentuates your waist and we all know that's what we're looking for these days. I paired it with this classic white clutch giving a elegant chic look and a chocker just to give it that edge. Now these heels are so bomb they can be the pop for any outfit because there attention grabbers and we always have to have that pop in our outfit! Thank you ASOS.

Fishnet BABE

Missguided always ceases to amazes me! This jumpsuit exemplifies my true definition of buying the pieces that make you gasp. As soon as I saw this beauty I was in awe, and knew It was going home with me. Putting it on my body literally gave me life! I loved the neckline and how there was built in undergarments and the pattern of fish net was amazingly constructed. Now I know many people shop for items that are practical and this is isn't one of them but sometimes you just have to step out of that box, and don't be afraid to try new things especially in your wardrobe! Some of my best outfits were discovered impulsively just out of love or spark of interest. So remember the next time you shop don't settle for I think I like this, but gasp and know you love it!

Blowing in the Wind

This dress made me feel like a modern day Keira Knightley, when she played in the Pride & Prejudice. It was giving me the ultimate 1940's vibe with the hugged crop on the sleeves and the tie up in the front yet the twist was the polka dotted mesh pattern. I thought it'd be a great way to complete the look by wearing all black and giving it a kick with my high black suede platforms.

LACE-IT UP!

I was so infatuated by the thigh high boot! It was feeding me sexy and edgy all at the same time so I just had to cop me a pair. At first I was a little unsure of what to wear with these extremely long shoes but something told me denim was the answer. And denim it was, because free people knocked it out the park with their stylish shirt/dress. Not only was it denim but it had the perfect wash of blues and even incorporated that lace up look that were all digging right now. Then, for my pop I decided to go with a cheetah print clutch that tied the whole look together.
