Whats wrong with having a little laugh, poking fun at fashion and the people who sometimes fail at it? I stumbled upon this blog called Go Fug Yourself today and it's absolutely hilarious!( thank god millions of people don't scrutinize me daily, or I would deff. be on this! We all have our moments, right?) I can't help but actually laugh out loud while reading some of the entry's. I guess it's refreshing to see someone looking at fashion in a realistic, light-hearted way. I would check it out if you need a good chuckle on someone else's expense!
I don't know who she is.... but I'm in love. Makes me want to dye my hair red again ( actually not 2 years dye free and counting!). I don't think I've EVER seen red done so well. The perfect color for fall. Though, I'm not sure if I can pull it off head-to-toe like this hot tomale!
One of my favorite trends that seems to be rolling from last year to the present is animal prints. They can be worn in so many different ways to achieve a multitude of vibes. From the over the top-over-all or just a pop of leopard here or there. Leopard is by far my favorite! Here are a few of my favorite from around the web. Most have an unknown source.
Recently came across Carolines mode online and instantly fell in LOVE/LUST/HEADOVERHEALS... you get the drift. She is stylish, simple, beautiful, and so much moooooore. I would totally check her out if you have the time. I've been scouring through her blog for a full day now. That's how obssesed I am! i love that she's posts everything in English at the end so the rest of us non-worldy people can enjoy everything she has to offer. Check her out.
First we had Chanel & YSL tattoos... now nail art? Not too sure how much they will cost when they come out, but would you wear them? I love nail art, but anyone can do the interlocking c's on there nails. I don't think we need to pay fr it. The handcuffs are cut, though!
Excited for a few things I may be starting soon. Maybe an additional blog with a friend who is moving back to the area soon. Check out here blog here, she's really adorable. Were are starting a collaboration of sorts and I'm overly excited about it... More info soon I swear!
I got a few cute new things in the mail this week that I'm super excited about. Pictures this weekend, I actually promise I will this time. I'm pretty lame when it comes to featuring myself on my blog. Kind of ironic I guess.
I'll leave you all with some pics from around the web that I love.
The guy with the beard is my favorite. I love a man with an epic beard! (my bf grows a pretty intense one, so lucky me!)
As another year adds itself onto my life, my brain has shifted into overdrive on what I should really be doing with my life. I'm a BIG dreamer but it seems that's about all I've been capable of achieving at this point. It never bothered me much... time is endless, I always thought. I'm starting to realize how wrong I might actually be.
As I start to come to these conclusions I feel myself not actually wanting to feel this way in any form. I've never been much for taking risks but I feel if I buckle down, go back to school, decide my career I feel like I might be giving up my only opportunity to start living life more 'by the seat of my pants' if you will. Then I start telling myself ' what if just giving in and actually doing the said ' buckle-downers' ... what if that's the biggest risk of all? Fully submersing myself in what may actually turn out to be my future. The fact that 'm not even 20% sure what I actually want to do is the scariest thing about all of this.
Do I do what will make me happiest? Make my life more exciting? Make me $$? Make my parents happy? My boyfriend?
I know when all is said and done, at the end of the day it's my life, my career, my choice... but really, when I think of what my life is... it's not just about me.
I know people must think I'm silly, of course it's my choice. But is it? My life oddly enough doesn't solely revolve around me.
Yes, It's almost half way through most peoples , but in Monterey, Ca we don't have the 'traditional' summers. Indian summers are what I hold out for every year. Some last longer, some come sooner, sometimes it doesn't come at all. Never the less, I sit and I wait. I love nothing more than the feel of a summer dress against my skin... A warm breeze through my tangled hair. As the weather finally starts to look up for me I'm on the hunt for a simple summer frock. Asos is having a great sale right now and I think I found one on the cheap. White, embroidered and the perfect length. I can easily be worn in the fall with a pair of tights.
I think I shall purchase this today. In fact, I know I will!
Off to Sacramento tomorrow to die in the heat and take my boyfriend to a Tool concert. I've never ventured to my state capitol so at least it's some what of a new venture. Brainstorming on outfits tonight to try and stay as cool as possible.
I'm disgustingly obsessed with a blog called Green Wedding Shoes right now, even though I'm not engaged or even planning a wedding currently. While browsing today I saw this photo and I cried! I'm a total sap, but it's still adorable beyond words. I'll leave you all with this happiest of happy pictures to brighten up the weekend.
So a sewing school opened up in the building that I work in this past may. Recently I have gotten close with the owner and have decided to take a on- going sewing class starting this fall. I'm so excited. All I have ever wanted to do in life is make my own clothes, sell enough to pay the bills and just enjoy my life. So starting September I may finally be on my way. I've been looking into fashion marketing classes to start in the fall as well. I'm pretty excited at this point.
I was doing my daily online browsing and saw a cute simple white blouse on ModCloth and really think I want to try and replicate it. I wish I was taking my sewing class now so I could wear it this summer. Oh well, all in time. Right?
Pictured above is the shirt I would love to make. well, obviously. Hahaha, Hope everyone is enjoying the week. It's been cold a dreary in Monterey this week. I really hope it gets better before summer is totally gone.
Been on an unexpected hiatus from blogging. It's been really nice, actually. It's been mostly unintentional, work has been keeping me off the computer. I had an amazing birthday and have just been trying to enjoy the 'summer' weather ( we use this term summer loosely here in Monterey) It has been at least nice enough for a few days out of the week to be spent in my summer-ish clothes.
I have so many things coming up this summer, so I may actually start posting more picture! My blog is always a good excuse pay better attention to my wardrobe choices.
Sorry, but that's all for today! Hope everyone is enjoying the summer!
