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.

WHAT I WORE: PINSTRIPES & TRAINERS

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!

WHAT I WORE: FIRST DAY OF FALL

Today marks the first day of fall! A new season brings in new ideas. I know I’ve been gone for way too long, but I’m happy to say that I have been exploring my creative freedom. I’ve been having fun messing around with different editing apps for iOS, and submerging myself in Tumblr, YouTube, magazines, and music. Hope you enjoy the rest of my content from here on out. It’s time to grow.

So if you live in Texas you know that fall/winter doesn’t really happen until like November. It’s about to be October and we are currently experiencing 106 degree heat out here. With that in mind, I knew I couldn’t throw on my thigh highs (as badly as I wanted to), but I was able to substitute them for my go-to ankle boots. This oversized sweater dress was waaaay too oversized so I had to cut a chunk off the bottom. A little DIY, right quick. But this color though!! Sage green. I don’t have anything this color, but I liked that it still falls under the neutrals. I’m being stubborn as f**k at this point, because I know damn well that red and purple are THE season’s colors. But anyways, anything oversized looks sexy with thigh highs, so I’m hoping it gets cold soon so I can wear this outfit out.

/WHAT I’M LISTENING TO

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*.

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!

In collaboration with Forever 21, I present to you my favorite shoot to date. I’ve picked up a couple of sweaters at Forever 21 before, but I have to say that I was absolutely surprised by the quality of this one in particular. I LOVE that the sleeves are extra long, because they gave me those Korean style vibes I’m into right now. So, sleeves [check], but what about the material? This sweater is T H I C K. The sweater alone kept me warm during the shoot, without having to layer a jacket over it. Next, the holy grail: my new ring belt. I’ve literally seen it on Korean celebrities, aswell as on the streets of Seoul. I had to do it, and I didn’t think twice about it. No regrets.

If you liked this outfit, stay tuned for more looks I’ve put together with Forever 21! #sponsored

FRESH FRAMES

The coolest prescription frames have officially launched their Spring 2017 collection! I love the minimalistic approach of both the frames and the color options. My favorites from the collection, shown above, are Caspar and Durand. I’ve actually decided to use the site’s “home try-on” option, which allows you to pick 5 frames to try on at home for 5 days, free! Not sure what style of eyeglasses are best for you? Take their quiz here. Nobody said eyeglasses can’t be funky.
