acid fever..

Jacket - Vintage Levi's Acid Wash
top - f21
watch - Michael Kors
nails - Light my Saphire by O.P.I
earrings - topshop
bracelets - ALDO, soho
pants - Bershka
boots - American Eagle

This jacket came in the mail this morning and I was so excited - I could pick nothing else to wear! I ordered it from eBay a while ago and had been counting down to it's arrival! I got a really good deal on it too! I'm so impressed with its quality and condition especially considering its age. It's a Men's Large - really oversized, but you know that's how I like it. I always heard of people getting such treasures on eBay, but I always wondered how they managed to sift through the many options available there! We all know how overwhelming the platform can get.. Luckily, Wendy from Wendy's Lookbook let us in on their little secret, here! With this lovely treasure of mine, I henceforth, consider myself a member of the league certified eBay Bounty Hunters™!

soho in a day..

The cutest M.A.C store I ever saw | DASH soliciting for ROB votes | Two floors of Longchamp | Pretty Jewelry on the Streets - Hamsa bracelets and such | Couldn't help myself, I just HAD to get some | Me going camera happy outside theory | *sigh* the stores that lined Prince Street | How cute is that little pink store? | Ahh, le Starbucks | Me derping outside Pret a Manger. 

Finally got round to putting these pictures up.  I had so much fun in ny, but it's back to school for me now.. In other words, excuse my recent lack of posts. I also wanted to do a recent finds post, but I wasn't sure if you guys would prefer it as a video or just pictures - let me know! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving / Black Friday / Cyber Monday holiday.. What did you get? I'd like to know!

these stripes in my eyes...

striped top - new look
pants - H&M
shoes - f21

on my lips - MAC 'Lovelorn'

I came down to the city for Thanksgiving break and I've fallen in love with it [again]. The skyline, the bright lights and the pollution - lol - every part of it.. For the first time ever, we left the numbered streets and ventured into Soho. I might even make a photodiary out of my whole experience there! These photos were taken in front of the Kardashian's DASH store (which I wouldn't say was anything to write home about..) I wished greatness on myself as I walked in and out of theory, rag and bone, vivienne tam and chanel.. I did however purchase a very fine vintage piece from Cheap Jack's that I cannot wait to show you guys in a 'recent finds' post!

DIY: Studs..

For some reason, I've been very stud-happy lately.. I had this strong urge to stud everything I own! So I just went ahead and ordered these lovely nailheads from eBay. They're very cheap and they refurbish any old piece of clothing.. Watch!

what you'll need

  • Nail heads [Studs]
  • Knife
  • Any piece of clothing you want!

Studding anything is pretty simple..

You push the studs through the fabric and bend the claws down onto the fabric with a knife.

And with a denim vest...

Go crazy with studs! I mean, you can never really go wrong. Use as many as you want, however you want, and on any piece of clothing you want! Stud your socks if you want to.. Just be careful about the claws behind  the stud, they do get fiesty! lol. I'd like to see what you guys try out!

Fall/Winter Ideal Wardrobe

Fall Fantasy

Can you tell I'm obsessed? This is my ideal wardrobe for the fall /winter! With a nice strong jacket for when the snow storms roll in, of course.. Mix and match them if you like - they'd make a bangin' outfit every time!

strokes of watermelon..

knit - Topshop
shirt - f21
jeans - True Religion
motor boots - Dolce Vita

Feeling ever so casual on this beautiful fall day.. Oversize knits are definitely my best-friend this season and this one in particular is one of my favorites! Despite its obnoxious color, I still always find loads of new pairings for it. I got these boots last year and I'm still very much in love with them. It's one of those staples I know will always remain in my wardrobe and can be recycled year after year. Seriously, I don't think [motor] ankle boots are going anywhere any decade soon!

woo me in my sleep..

hat - H&M
necklace - f21
snake ring - asos
spike ring - f21
shirt - H&M
jumper/sweater - H&M
trench - London Fog
jeans - f21
socks - miscellaneous
1460 Purple Shimmer Dr. Martens

[lipstick - Ruby Woo (M.A.C)]

As you all can tell, transition weather is coming to an end. Rochester will be unexpectedly hit by full blown winter, and all the fun will end. Oh joy! And you know what? That can't even spoil my mood: I'm surprisingly ecstatic today! Bet you could already tell since I'm wearing Ruby Woo.. Even after waking up at 5am this morning to register for Winter classes, rain and classes til 8pm! smh.. The secret to my happiness? - learning to take things one step at a time and not worrying too much. If I keep this up, I will never have a bad sad dull moment in my life again! Speaking of no dull moments, Halloween is just around the corner! (do not compare mine to a witch's hat :-p) I have no idea what to go as.. What are some of you guys' ideas? I'm curious!

first and forever..

Dr. Martens - 1460 - Purple Shimmer

I got these babies in the mail yesterday and I don't think there are sufficient words to describe the way I felt! I actually had my countdown to their arrival and I couldn't wait to rush home after classes yesterday and pick them up! My first pair of docs - yes, it really is that deep! I woke up this morning happy it was a rainy day so I could 'launch' them! They're perfect for grey weather and I think they'd serve their purpose in the snow as well! They're nice shiny and more purple in person, they look sort of black here. I took these pictures in an excited spur of the moment under the bad tungsten lighting in my room so excuse the quality.. I would have snapped up the outfit I wore but it was raining cats, dogs and lizards all day. x_x

if gypsies were fairies...

tank top - H&M
belt - ASOS
maxi skirt - ZARA
necklace - f21

ft. Gold/Brown Arm Party

Does anyone else laugh as hard as I do? No? Okay.. lol. Today was a wonderful day in Rochester. 70 something degree weather, just the right amount of sunshine and breeze - I couldn't have asked for more. It made me realize how much I loved this tank top: the airiness, the lace detailing around the neckline and back. I also love the peplum effect the belt creates for it and I hope you guys do too. I am currently being weighed down by the project I have due Wednesday that still needs work. (I should probably get back to it now.) Besides this, things in my life are getting better. I have a surprise for you lovely readers soon and I will only give one clue: "firstandforever". Can you guess what it might be? 

Have a great week!

one of the boys...

blazer - Charlotte Russe 
tshirt - f21
acid wash jeans - f21
flats - Dorothy Perkins

Hi everyone! I hope you're all well.. It's been a while since I've blogged and I do miss it dearly. I've just finished my midterm exams (already! right?) and I should have more breathing space soon. This was my outfit today - Its supposed to be my take on androgyny! Like? I'm trying to hold on to every last bit of summer so dearly. Sadly enough, it dropped about 1000 degrees this evening alone! lol, no I'm kidding. On the upside, its about to be snuggle weather! Hello oversize knits, large mugs of hot chocolate and the exciting things about late fall and winter. Hope you're all making the best out of your days!
