Pleat Loving

Dear Diary,

I'm sure you were all fed up with me putting clothing sets together... trust me, I got tired of looking at them too LOL. I was swamped with tons of work and didn't have the chance to blog about my own outfits,but I'm backkkkk!
Anywho, today's posting is on pleats. Pleats are one of the hottest repetitive trends seen on the runway . They have been showcased in almost every designer's resort, spring and even fall collections. But nothing was able to have me as swooned as this glossy leather accordion from Gucci's 2012 resort collection.

I found a budget friendly version of the Gucci skirt last year at h&m. This baby has just been sitting in my closet,begging to be worn,so I finally decided to take it out for a spin.

                              I paired the skirt with a Versace for H&M Men's jersey t-shirt.

               To make it less rockerish,I layered  the tee with a sleeveless bubblegum pink collared shirt.

                   Versace for H&M t-shirt, Melrose Chiffon shirt, Vintage belt, H&M bag, Zara pumps.
                                                         Happy Saturday peeps!

Wishing Coachella

Dear Diary,

 It's here again...COACHELLA!!  For those of you not aware of the madness, coachella is a three-day music and arts festival that happens every year in Indio,California. I still can't get a friggin ticket because they are always sold out months in advance, and this leaves me stuck with a live stream of the show every year *sighs* it's that good. However, my gloomy mood is not going to stop me from sharing my "what could have been" outfits with you guys.

Early morning at the Gap

Dear Diary,

As some of you may remember, I did a  post on a Who What Wear event that took place at the Gap a few months back. Attendees were told to come dressed in colorful attire, and the best outfits received a $500 Gap gift card. You can say I was one of the lucky winners of this competition, but I certainly could not have done it without all the amazing people that voted for me, thank you guys! :D.
Here are some iPhone flicks of my purchases.

I was getting a little carried away while grabbing the clothes, but I mean come on, everyone knows it's always a great feeling when you don't have to come out your own pockets. Am I right or am I right?

I am in love with these tie dye skinnies! I can't wait to wear them this summer..

So I spent two and a half hours trying on clothes, and my sister,who was also my photographer that morning had to rush me out of the store. Explains why my shirt is half way buttoned lol. Hope you guys saw pieces that you may like to add to your closet for the summer.
