Lookbook

Put together a short lookbook using pieces you probably already own! Basics never go out of style. 

It was so fun diving into the realm of video. With practice I’ll get so much better at editing, but you have to start somewhere. Enjoy, and subscribe!

Something you’re interested in watching from me? Anything in the realm of makeup and fashion, I’d love to know.

I missed expressing myself so much. I get mental blocks sometimes but it’s funny how the outcomes of my own life give me the creativity I felt I was lacking. I’m a very emotional individual, but my own emotions helped me create this project alongside a dear friend of mine (@organic.honey_). It really blew my mind that she listened to me, understood the mood and concept I wanted, and truly put it together in front of my eyes. In order to understand this project, I recommend you listen to the song that inspired it in the first place. You cannot understand my emotions or train of thought, but this song conveys them perfectly. EVERGLADE is my interpretation of the repercussions of love. I know that to most people this seemed like a well put together outfit shoot, but “point-and-shoot” content has become progressively boring. Also big thanks to (@shhbbyisokay) for jumping in and taking additional shots.

Hoping to continue to create better content for my platforms! Happy Friday

Let me know what you’d want to watch if I started a Youtube channel. Still contemplating it, but it would allow me to expand DBD! Leave a comment if what you’re interested in is not on the poll already.

TUBE TOP / AMERICAN APPAREL
CULOTTES C/O AKIRA
TRAINERS / H&M
SUNGLASSES / TENDENCIES coming soon

 

As some of you know, I love Korean fashion, but I am also very inspired by everything Japanese. I’ve been listening to 80’s Japanese disco and it’s the best shit ever💕 This look was my twist on Japanese streetstyle, and it has become one of my favorite outfits of 2017. I thought the culottes combined with sneakers would make me appear shorter than I already am, but the tube top definitely helped elongate my body. And okay these sunglasses are SO COOL. They pulled the look together, and I’m crying over the Kurt Cobain inspired frame (and the red-orange tint). If you’ve read my previous post you’d know that red was one of the IT colors on the runway this season.

I had alot of fun editing these photos, btw. Will post again soon, じゃあね!

RUFFLED

TOP C/O SHEIN (here)
LEVI’S SHORTS / THRIFTED
HEELS / ALDO
EARRINGS / PRETTYLITTLETHING

Another rare moment, wearing a color other than black AND ruffles. Girly much. Loved this top the moment I saw it, simply because the silhouette was so interesting. Not only that, but this top also combines the seasons off-shoulder trend with puff sleeves and pinstripes. I’m wearing a size XS and I’m petite af. Hope that helps *shrugs*.

UNDERWORLD VIBES

MESH BODYSUIT C/O AKIRA (here)
SATIN DRESS / PRETTYLITTLETHING
VELVET BOMBER C/O SHEIN (here)
MINIMALIST HEELS / GOJANE

 

Finally some mesh!!! It’s so cool to layer it, especially under unexpected pieces like a satin slip dress. The combo incorporates both feminine and edgy pieces that really gives it a *cough* Underworld vibe. There’s just something about vampires that is romantic, yet kick-ass. This mesh bodysuit from AKIRA is a thong so it’s basically invisible under a delicate fabric like satin. Recently picked up another mesh item at Forever 21, somebody stop me. Also, I bought a pair of enormous black platforms. I need to show you all…….

ANKLE BOOTS / PUBLIC DESIRE LIBBY  (sold out)
DENIM / LEVI’S (thrifted)

 

I love my new biker jacket more and more each time I wear it, and this outfit hit peak #lovelevels. I wore a killer lace up tee, courtesy of Forever 21, which I had actually tried on in-store. I really like the laced up tee shirt trend, and of course I had to have it in black. My new boots, though, were an impulse buy. I originally wanted the Tony Bianco ankle boots, which are idetnical, but Public Desire always comes in clutch. Any footwear that’s trending….you’ll find it on Public Desire. If you all remember from older posts, I have some cylindrical heel ankle boots, but I ended up noticing that they scrunch around my ankles because your girl has lil’ tiny ankles. This new pair, which still feature a block heel, are tight around my heel and are EXACTLY what I wanted. They are Lycra, and are stretchy and very comfortable. I do, however, recommend that you size up. I am a 6 1/2 and I usually size down because PD does not offer half sizes. Usually their shoes run slightly bigger, but because of the material of these boots you NEED to wear socks to get them on. Therefor, the size 6 is a really snug fit, and a 7 would have been better for me. **This is only a recommendation, because everybody is different.  In other news, there’s a new collab coming up soon with AKIRA Chicago!

MOTO JACKET / ZARA

 

For the first time in my life, I’ve worn a patterned top. Not any pattern. STARS. I once saw the owner of SaboSkirt, Thessy, wear a polka-dot top and I fell in love. Did I have the courage to wear something similar at that time…of course not. But the time has come, and IT’S LIT (jk, but for real it is). This Forever 21 top has subtle lace up detailing that only adds to the stars. I styled this outfit with a 70’s vibe in mind, hence the yellow tinted sunglasses. For being totally out of my comfort zone, I definitely felt most confident while shooting this outfit. A huge hug for the Forever 21 team, for allowing this collab to happen! More looks to come.

Have you been listening to my likes on Soundcloud? I update it daily, and I’ve been listening to Che Ecru’s Benefits on r e p e a t. Lastly, want to know where I get outfit inspo from? Check out my Tumblr, and my Pinterest! Hopefully you’ll find something that inspires you too. XOXO
