• Cats Eye Sunglasses
• Pleated Sleeve Blouse
• High Waisted Shorts
• Wedge Booties

So when I was little, I HATED pleats (also collars). But as I grow older, I gain more liking for pleats! Pleats make any outfit look chic. I really like this outfit because it is really comfy while having that put together look.

Animals Are The New Animal Print

So as many people know, animal print is becoming less popular. The replacement for that major deficit is animal faces. While many think that this is a new concept, it really isn't all that new! I have recently been watching some old Lizzie McGuire episodes and I ran into this image. I thought to myself... Heyy! This looks really familiar! And indeed it was. I saw a denim vest on Pinterest that had this same tiger thingy on it! So I give all my trend kudos to Lizzie McGuire! On another note, I have this week off from school so I am going to be in and out!

My Fashion Truck Story

Once upon a time, there was a girl. She was listening to the radio when she heard there was going to be a fashion truck in a nearby city. She thought, " What is a fashion truck?" She looked it up on the Internet and found that it was just like a boutique in a truck. Kind of like a food truck except with clothes! She was so excited that she made her dad take her to it the next weekend when it was scheduled to show up. When she got there, she was awestruck. She could not believe how amazing this truck was. She found lots of cool stuff that she had always been looking for but could not find in any of the nearby stores.  She found this awesome dress that was original and very much her style. She checked the price tag hoping that it was within her price range. Unfortunately, it was $99 and way out of her price range. She had an amazing idea to D.I.Y. it. So she asked permission to take a picture of it and the owner was very gracious and let that girl do her thing. That girl got some sunglasses and a bralette but was determined to make that dress. A couple of days later, she went to the JoAnns near by and got her materials and a couple of months later, she was finished. She was so excited and could not keep her happiness within herself. TRUE STORY. Left is the boutique's and mine is on the right. Tell me whatcha think!

Happy Thursday! It's my first official post! So today I am going to talk about ' Litas'. As many of you know, this is a quickly growing trend. There are many knockoff versions ( like mine ) but the non-knockoff version is by Jeffrey Campbell. (Link below!!)  I personally don't do knockoffs but I couldn't resist getting these on Melrose Ave.  They are pretty much platform lace up booties. I first discovered them in a YouTube video by clothesencounters (check her out! Also link below) and immediately fell in love with them. I have never known the definition of love at first sight until that moment.

About Me

Hey guys!
Before I actually start blogging, let me tell you a couple if things about myself...
  Well, I love everything vintage or recycled. My main goal in life is to become a successful fashion designer. Many people call me a hipster ( or a 'OG') but I just like to call myself original. I live in a small town with lots of interesting people and don't get me wrong, I love it but sometimes I wish I could go live in a big city. Anyhoo,  enjoy this blog and don't be afraid to leave comments!
