Eclectic Variety

Friday, January 23, 2015
Well well well, I never thought I'd be comfortable in flats, especially a pair with a platform sole. I've made it a priority to buy flats because I literally own 1 pair outside of sneakers. Which has proven to be a pain in the ass because it gets slick out in the winter time. Can't really wear heels and having only 1 option for flats, means I have no options at all.

I stalk street style images and I love how Europeans make flats so chic. My brain seriously finds it hard to conceptualize looks that don't involve heels. But just like with everything in life, this will take some getting use to. These shoes are from Zara and I thought I was gonna have a hard time figuring out how to wear them. I literally came up with this look in 15 minutes...actually quite shocking!

I just bought this sweatshirt, and when I pulled down this skit and noticed the hint of orange on both pieces, as well as the contrast in texture, I knew they'd work perfectly together.

Art is Art

This top is the most unique vintage piece I own. It's one of those things I'll probably own forever because I'm afraid if I get rid of it I'll regret it. I definitely have a greater appreciation for art after visiting Paris. I've always been artistic in some shape or form, but lately I feel I'm really starting to connect with all types of art. It's been really exciting getting to know some insanely creative people with talent far beyond mine. That really makes you test your limits, more importantly, you can never have too much knowledge. New people and experiences are refreshing.

It's Layers To This Shit

Friday, January 16, 2015
My go-to, that never fails me, is layering. For some odd reason, when I start piling clothes on and playing around with different textures. I create looks I really love. This outfit is a result of that, but I'll admit, it does take a lot of putting things on and taking them off for me to get to what I like. I was actually throwing on this sheer nightie to go change the laundry. This pencil skirt was in my pile of laundry and I thought, why not put it on over the nightie...and that was that.

Plaid Attitude

My first outfit post of the new year!!! A few posts ago I mentioned I'm gonna buy at least one vintage piece in every city/country I visit while traveling. So I thought what better way to bring in 2015, than with this amazing vintage jumpsuit. I picked it up at a vintage shop in Paris. I wasn't sure about it initially but Trisha convinced me to get it and I'm glad I did.

Me and vintage have an on again/off again relationship. The thing is, it's so easy to get sidetracked. The annoying thing about trends is they kind of cloud your vision. I mean, I'm guilty of gravitating towards them even when I don't particularly care for them. I guess for convenience, better yet laziness. When I don't wanna hunt for amazing/one of pieces that actually add to fashion conversations, instead of conform to them. Wait, wait...I actually always wanna do this, who am I kidding. "What the hell's the point of blogging if you can see my look on a shit ton of other blogs?" Is what I asked myself coming into this year, my third year of blogging, my all or nothing year, my get my shit together year. Soooooo I promise I'll keep it fresh and new from now on, because that's what I wanna do.

Bare Don't Barely Bare

Bare - To uncover a part of the body or other thing and expose it to view. Before I get into the nitty gritty this year, I want to explain why I share. This blog started solely as a creative outlet. What I've learned over the past 3 1/2 years is STARTING this blog was a turning point in my life.

When I set out to do this, I had no real goals or agenda, I didn't have a plan but I had passion. Over time that passion turned into plans, and those plans started to breathe life behind what it is I aim to do on this blog.
