Biker Jacket || Vintage Crewneck c/o Perennial Merchants || Boyfriend Jeans 

There's nothing I love more in fashion than vintage pieces! I styled two vintage pieces in this look - a vintage biker jacket and a vintage Tweety crewneck c/o Perennial Merchants. A genuine leather biker jacket is a great investment. It's an edgy piece that will likely never go out of style and it's durable and lasts long when properly taken care of. This jacket was my older brother's in the early 90s and its still in great condition! I definitely recommend using a water resistant solution to keep the leather as good as new! 

Cropped crewnecks are definitely an obsession of mine. They're so 90s. They're the perfect statement piece. I brought the attention to the Tweety graphic on my crewneck with this bright yellow tote bag. Coordinating colors in this way is a simple key to looking effortlessly chic. Boyfriend jeans add balance to the edginess and add some extra comfort to the outfit. Black pumps dress it up just enough to take the look from comfy to elegant.

WHAT TO WEAR: CASINO EDITION.

Wednesday, February 17, 2016












GET THE LOOK

 Are you feeling lucky? If so, the Casino is the perfect place for you. There is just something so hopeful about the possibility of winning free money. But what does one wear to remain stylish while trying their luck? I always associate the colors red and black with Casinos. Maybe it's the poker chips, or maybe it's the cards. A sexy burgundy velvet dress is the perfect choice for a night of Black Jack & Roulette. Burgundy is in the red family, but it's more fun and mature win my opinion. I just love the deep cuts in this dress! they're super sexy but made well enough to make the dress secure and comfortable to wear all night long. I've been obsessing over Windsor lately. They seem to always have what I'm looking for, before I even know what I'm looking for myself. I guess their job is done. After all, that's how the entire fashion industry works. 
The texture of velvet is very reminiscent of casino furnishings and upholstery. Velvet is one of my favorite fabrics and it is definitely trendy this season. A statement necklace is like the missing puzzle piece when you have a plunging neckline. There's nothing worse than a naked chest. A V-shaped necklace mimics the hemline of the dresses neckline, which is a rule of thumb I like to follow when choosing a necklace. Ankle strap heels add a little something extra on the lower half. They give the eye something interesting to look at, in turn making the legs appear longer. Personally, I love ankle strap heels because I'm slightly bow-legged so I feel like they balance out the shape of my legs and make my calves look much better than regular pumps do. If you wanna go all out but you're working with a small budget like this broke college student right here, finish the look with a faux fur coat. Hey, if I win the jackpot I'll be able to purchase an authentic mink coat. Until then, faux fur will do! LOL
I spent my birthday weekend in Atlantic City and this is the outfit I wore to the Casino. I definitely felt super elegant and stylish as I passed the slot machines. I sure felt confident that I was going to score some big cash. This was only my second time at a casino in my life, so I'm definitely a newbie. I shadowed my friend until I felt like I could give it a try myself. I played a game that's similar to Wheel of Fortune, Black Jack, some slots and Roulette. I was so scared at first, but I eventually got the hang of it. Unfortunately, I didn't didn't get so lucky, but maybe next time!

BLUE VELVET.

Saturday, February 13, 2016



















GET THE LOOK

What's better than Red Velvet? BLUE VELVET OF COURSE. It's safe to say velvet is a long lasting trend that we can expect to see on the runways and streets for many seasons to come. It's a super comfy fabric that easily adds texture to any piece. A two-piece velvet set is a must have in my opinion. You can dress it up with simple pumps and a long trench coat like I did here or you can dress it down with flats or low top sneakers if you really wanna be comfy. This set was designed and handmade by a friend of mine from college. She recently launched her online boutique, Destined Boutique. She is super talented and makes quality and trendy pieces that every girl would want! NO bias at all, I swear.

EDGY & DVNGEROUS.

GET THE LOOK

Windbreaker c/o Dangerous Clothing || Top || Pants || Socks || Boots || Choker

You know whats perfect for those cold and wet Winter days? A windbreaker! They're comfy, they keep you warm and dry and they're so much fun to style. I kept the look pretty urban with this windbreaker from Dangerous Clothing. Mine is a size Medium, which is perfect because I prefer my clothes to be a little oversized. I paired it with these black joggers, striped socks and platform boots. A sexy white crop top that reveals some skin is the perfect way to add some femininity to balance out this look. A choker and dark lip adds some edge to pull everything together for a BADA$$ ensemble.
