Hello everyone! While I absolutely do not consider myself a fashion blogger, I have jumped on this athleisure trend and have gone HAM with my Adidas trefoil purchases.

I’m absolutely not an expert (far far from it), but I planned my trip to Mount Hood, Oregon a few months in advance so I had plenty of time to ask everyone I knew about what clothes I needed to stay warm and comfortable while skiing. If you’ve never skied before, you’re going to need to buy or borrow the following: Continue reading “What Clothes You Need for Skiing”

If you’re like me and always expending tons of energy trying to figure out what to bring on trips in order to be prepared for any weather/situation/temperature/
Coachella is 3 days long and the fashion is almost as important to Coachella as the music. Coachella is one of those few rare times that you can dress in basically a costume in public and no one will judge you. I will warn you that at 28 I’m a pretty pragmatic young lady so if you’re one of those girls that has no problem wearing Louboutins all night, bold lips any day without worrying constantly that lipstick is on your teeth, or outfits that are basically taped to your naughty parts you probably have a much higher commitment to lookin’ fly than I do.
Here’s my tips are on what to wear to Coachella including affordable clothes and accessories. Be sure to check out my What to Bring to Coachella post.
Shoes for Coachella
Coachella is enormous I’d guess depending on how active your group is you will be walking up to 6-10+ miles per day in a grassy field. I wore flat boots when I went because my friend Meagan told me to wear boots that “don’t even have a 1 inch heel. Not even the littlest baby heel. Flat. On the ground.” And I think that was really good advice. If you wear heels you’ll probably hate yourself and end up barefoot. If you wear sandals they are going to get jacked up by all the dirt and your feet will be stepped on by fellow festival-goers. If you’re even more chill than I am you could wear sneakers and be comfortable as well.
Dresses and Skirts– Pick some that are long enough so that when you sit on the ground you’ll have a little bit of a fabric barrier. Also consider wearing shorts underneath for added comfort and because it can get super windy. Continue reading “What to Wear to Coachella”

A few weeks ago I was invited by a friend to go to a show at LA Fashion Week. It was my first “big time” fashion show I’d ever attended. I originally thought it was the first fashion show I’d attended period, but then remembered back to my days in Gainesville, FL supporting my model roommate walking the runway (miss you Val!). Anyway the show was Sue Wong “Fairies and Sirens” on October 15, 2014 at LA Live and after watching the video on the invite I was immediately obsessed with Sue:
In this video Sue talks about her brand and she is such an artiste it’s just great. She also discusses how her 3 different mansions inspire her dresses so yeah the video is pretty amazing. As far as how to get invited to the shows unfortunately I don’t know how one does this. I was lucky enough to be invited by a friend whose aunt knows Sue. The show was on a Wednesday evening and the dress code was cocktail attire. I decided to go a little more casual, but yet still chic and in all-black which seems like a fashionable thing to do, right? Here’s the outfit I wore:
I had so much fun getting vampy for Halloween this year that I wanted to share the details on my hair, makeup, costume, and accessories on the blog for you all.
I started off my costume hunt at the LA area beauty mecca Naimie’s Beauty Center. If you don’t know, Naimie’s is a two-story warehouse filled with wigs, drugstore and high end makeup (MAC, Makeup Forever, Lime Crime, Ben Nye, Red Cherry Lashes), hair products, special FX makeup, and more. It is an awesome place for beauty lovers. I bought the Ben Nye Vampire Kit for $18 that looks like this:
One of the guys there recommended I check out Halloween Town in Burbank because they had a surprisingly small selection of fangs at Naimie’s. The products I ended up using from this kit on the night of Halloween were the Vampire Character Base (which I was worried might be the color of my actual skin, but luckily it was lighter) and the mint flavored fake blood. I did use the other cream colors when practicing for my look a few nights beforehand, but didn’t end up using them in the end because they were harder to blend than the powder products I ended up using. If I was doing it over again I think I would just buy the blood and possibly the base. Here’s the video that inspired my practice run:
And here’s what the practice one looked like:
For the makeup I ended up doing, I used Shaanxo’s video as inspiration:
