South Western

 Hi everyone :)
I went to the FIDM "Sew Like A Designer Workshop" and made this skirt!
It's not my best work, but I am very proud of the lace applique I hand stitched on.
(The lace itself took 2 hours in case you were wondering.)

Macrame Top :: F21
Skirt :: DIY
Belt :: F21
Boots :: Tilly's
Bracelets :: DIY

To style this skirt, which is actually a stretch denim, I paired it with
my white macrame top from Forever 21, a floral belt for a pop of color 
and my Soda boots for some edge.
It ended up looking kind of south western, which is quite different for me.
Hope you all have a great day!

Back to School Backpacks

It's that time of year again.
But I can try to make it better with fashion, right? Right.

(Just a side note: I am not paid to promote any of these products nor brands.)

What are you planning to wear for your first day of school look?

Fashion Forward : DENIM

The trend in the spotlight this week is... DENIM. 
I know, I know, denim will be "in style" forever, but people have been going ALL OUT this year.
This 'trend' is as classic as black + white, which I talked about last time.
Wow, I am not very good at this :)

I have a couple theories about this trend, one is that dungarees, or overalls are in style; which are mostly made of denim.
Second, colored denim has become so popular, for all genders, that commercial designers just slap it on everything. Denim is so comfortable and easy, so why not push it even further?

Lazy Days

I just realized I have been extremely lazy this summer.
Typical me.

Logan Lerman is my all-time favorite actor of this generation and he is so gorgeous. 
(I do not apologize for fangirling. Just deal with it.)
