The Winning Shoe

Dear Diary,

I purchased a flared jumpsuit over the week that I was ready to take for a spin, but before I did so, I  played "pick my shoes" with my Instagram  followers on Friday afternoon. There were 3 shoe options, and they had to choose which one would suit the attire best. Thanks to their funky pick, I strutted my stuff in the pop of color platforms and received loads of compliments! Let me just say, my folks on instagram know their FASH-UHN honey! *snap snap*

            FINDERSKEEPERS flared jumpsuit (in black), ZARA platform heels, TOPSHOP pyramid earrings.

Givenchy Had A Baby

Dear Diary,

During Autumn/Winter 2011, all I kept seeing were animal faces plastered onto garments coming down the Givenchy runway. Before I knew it, the trend spread through the streets like wildfire.

The thing I loved about Riccardo Tisci's collection is the fact that a lot of the pieces could be worn separately. The only problem is, they break the bank lol.  Thanks to Forever 21, I found a more budget friendly option last summer, that I cannot get enough of.  Here are the different ways that I styled my tee.

Look 1: Back to School

Worn with: ZARA boys flannel, perforated track shorts, COMME des GARCONS sneakers(also  HERE).

Look 2: Casual-Chic

Worn with: ACNE high waist skinny jeans, LUXURY REBEL kenny pump (on sale), H&M necklace, TOPSHOP earrings,  ZARA clutch.

Look 3: Grunge

Worn with: Wide brim fedora (purchased in London),  ZARA faux leather skinny pants, ROMWE boots, FOREVER 21 denim shirt (seen HERE).

Moschino Fall 2013 Collection: Menswear

Dear Diary,

Why must men go for the same ol' boring solids in Fall? Just like ladies, they are entitled to mixing/matching, and Moschino has proven that by adding fur collars to tartan coats, pairing leather jackets, bow ties, with tapered brocade pants, and adding satin lapels to novelty print pantsuits for your night time extravaganza!
Here are some of my favorite picks from the collection.

New Year, New Beginnings

Dear Diary,

Crazy how quickly 2012 came to an end, but i'm grateful to still be alive and have all the amazing supporters on my blog, and for that I say thank you to each and everyone of you! I am still growing as a writer, and brainstorming on ways to keep you guys entertained on the blog. Some revamping will definitely take place. One of my New Years resolutions is also to make sure I update more frequently than I used to. The procrastination must come to an end from today onwards lol.

 My roots were getting a tad too dark, so I finally got my hair redyed. What do y'all think?

Special thanks to topshop for allowing me to visit their showroom location in L.A. I got this khaki contrast hem skirt.

Paired it with my white fringe Zara blouse, that you may recognize from my champs elysees post.

ZARA fringe blouse, TOPSHOP contrast hem skirt, FOREVER 21 leopard brogues (also worn here), FOREVER 21 earrings.

Christmas Eve photos long overdue

Dear Diary,

For some reason, my outfit always looks better when it's picked out at the very last minute. I can't seem to figure out what it is, but I'm not complaining, heyyy lol.

  DENIM JACKET(my brother's old one), ZARA blouse, EXPRESS hoop earrings, CITIZENS OF HUMANITY coated pants, H&M cap toe booties( also worn here).

Another night with the boys! My sister and I took them to the Grand Luxe Cafe for dinner, and of course it wouldn't have been a regular dinner without our very own photo session.
The brothers.

The sisters

For those of you who are not familiar with this adorable lady, meet my sister. A very impatient photographer at times, but she's definitely the reason I am able to share  many outfit shots on my blog .

Did I mention she has the best accessories in her closet? Don't be surprised if you see a future post with me wearing this sweater ;-).

                       ASOS jumper, H&M coated pants, TROUVE booties, BALENCIAGA arena bag.
