thought i'd try another hat.
1)hat-savers 2)sweater-jetrag 3)polka dot dress - vintage 4) belt - u.o. 5) brooch- mom's 6) boots- vintage, fairfax fleamarket
I just discover(yeah sorry I'm still learning lookbook) the contests portion, so Mango has a fall fashion contest and I'm having fun putting together fall outfits. I love this new orange wool sweater i found at Jetrag, I thought I hated orange but this season I am finally re-embracing it. I also refreshed this little polka dot dress, it actually used to be a jumper, but it was a bit awkward looking so i cut it and made it into a dress. These vintge boots just go with everything so that's great. The brooch is my mom's vintage piece, i was going to sell it at a garage sale cuz i never wore if for many years, but his collector old man told me to hold onto it cuz it has sentimental value and is worth something, so i did, and i'm glad i did. Cuz now I covet it and love it. thanks old guy. And you can't really see them but i'm wearing my dad's switchblade necklace, and my treble cleft necklace a gift from nadine. :)

Beautiful faces, beautiful makeup

Pumpkin spice & everything nice

Happy halloween and soon happy thanksgiving, my bf bought me this cute little pumpkin so i had to include it. :) I got this sweater (and the shirt) at the Jetrag sunday sale and it was so ugly it was cute, ya know?. The sleeves were a bit wide but i was determined to make it work so i threw on the belt and pulled on the sleeves in the picture and it actually turned out alright. YOu know how you think things are ugly but then you see them on other people and they look good? THis is one of those pieces I feel. Also have on my favorite owl necklace and my new Zara socks that I love love love, they're so comfy and warm going into fall and winter.

Glendale Artwalk

 what a sweet bookshelf this one artist at the artwalk had in his studio/house
 at the art walk in glendale a few months ago

 apparently there is chalk board spray you can buy, this artist used it for this piece meant for viewers to draw on. And who's that? Nickey Davey, 2011, go cop the album

I can't express how much i love this necklace, even moreso paired with this shirt. Love it, kind of grunge glam. xo

admiration/inspiration +

This is one of my favorite Zara skirts, and i love the way she paired it with the belt and the-color-of-the-season simple camel tshirt.

love glasses and the pastel hues, especially this amazing blue vintage truck and her pale purple nail polish.

Maja Demska a la The Jealous Curator

I love this collage piece by Maja Demska! A broach, a feather, tribal face paint, fangs, a bleached blonde, so currently and fashionably brilliant!  I spotted it on the Jealous curator's blog, which is fantastic blog, especially for you artists out there who can appreciate cool art - that this blogger is "jealous" of in the most admirable of ways.
      Also check out Maja's "Hidden Similarities" series, luvs it.

I've been in this blog-shout-out faze recently I'm noticing, so here is another one I'm sure most of you are familiar with but that is
   Rumi Neely, the creator of this blog, idealizes in her photos what I think many young fashionistas desire, a fun party-filled life centered around fabulous clothes. On another note, a girl came into Zara the other day and was asking for this dress as she saw it on fashion toast, and when she showed me the picture it took me a minute to figure it out since Rumi wore it completely different than how it is hanging in our store. Got to give it to her, part of fashion is about originality and uniqueness and creating you own look while still staying within current fashion trends and she succeeds on a regular basis. Hyped+

below is the dress as featured on :)
