MCMLXXIV















Pants; H&M | Jacket & Boots; UNIF | Shirt; The Chain Gang Of 1974

Photos by Megan Lane

The only thing running through my mind while uploading these was, "WHY DID I CUT MY HAIR?!?!!?" Yeah... I chopped off all my hair just a couple days ago. Mostly because my undercut was getting annoying, and because I had all these weird layers from how thick I kept my bangs last year. Sigh. It needed to be done, I think. 
But anyway, hi, these are my current favorite shoes. They're comfy and easy to walk in but still give me the extra height. Also, this shirt is by one of my buddy's bands, called The Chain Gang Of 1974, which I'm very fond of, and would recommend checking out. 

Until next time!

Bad Sport









Bad Sport 2 piece; UNIF | Boots; Nifty Thrifty | Leggings; Target

Photos by Megan Lane

These photos are kind of funny, because you can see how tan the lower half of my left arm is compared to the rest of my arm... Blame this on the fact that I have to cover my tattoos at work, so that's the only section of my arm that gets any sun. These photos are also funny because I used to absolutely detest matching clothing sets like this, but, I guess UNIF managed to change my mind on that. These were taken up in Merced when my best friend Megan and I went up to visit her sister. It was a fun little mini trip. I can never complain about trips with my best friend though. 
How was everyone's Christmas?! I've probably had the best one yet this year. Life is really good at the moment, and I hope you all can share in that sentiment. I cannot believe this year is almost over, just a few more days!

Happy holidays to you all!

Customized












Skirt; eSkakti | Top; Nasty Gal | Boots; UNIF | Jacket; H&M | Purse; Target

Photos by Megan Lane

So, this is a really, really late post, and I'm sorry for that. eShakti contacted me a few months ago (back in September, that's how behind on things I am), and offered me to choose a custom piece from their collection! You can customize any piece you want to fit you exactly. I loved the pattern of this skirt, and decided to go with that. I was really excited when I discovered I could even choose what length I wanted the skirt to me. I don't have many long skirts that aren't too long for my short little body, so being able to enter in your height helped a lot with that. I chose the ankle length, and boy, is it gorgeous. It is a tad bit big on my waist, but it's nothing super noticeable. Overall, I'm really happy with it.
This crop top (which I adore) was given to me by my best friend for my 26th birthday in October. I can't believe that I'm that old now. Time sure does fly, and it's true what they say, that the older you get, the faster time goes. Also, hello new favorite shoes! These are the Trench Highs by UNIF, and I am in love. They're three inch high platform boots, but they're perfect because they're not heavy in the slightest. They're also super comfortable, incredibly easy to walk in, and probably the warmest shoes I own. 

Again, sorry for the lack of posting. Life takes over sometimes.
I hope you all have been well!

Witchy






Outfit 1: Dress/skirt; Forever 21 | Hat; H&M
Outfit 2: Top; UNIF | Skirt; H&M | Lipstick; Lime Crime "Wicket" Velvetine

Photos by Yezemene F.

A couple weeks ago, Yezmene and I decided to get together and do something witchy in the spirit of Halloween. I absolutely love how these all came out. She just keeps getting better and better. That burgundy skirt with the UNIF Penny Crop have become my favorite combination for the season. 
Now, I guess it's time to welcome in November.

Cut Outs






Skirt; Wasteland | Tank top; H&M | Boots; Urban Outfitters | Lipstick; Serpentina by Lime Crime

I'm really, really late on posting these. These photos have just been sitting around for months and I haven't taken the time to post them? Anyway, I NEVER thought I'd ever like a circle skirt on myself, but this leather cut out one I found at Wasteland I somehow fell in love with. I guess it's not my typical style, but I really like it anyway!
I've done a couple cool shoots with some photographer friends of mine, so I'll post those in the coming days. Tomorrow is my birthday and I'll be turning 26... I'm not even sure how to feel about that.

How are you guys?

Slayher






Sunglasses; Cole Haan via Nordstrom Rack | Shirt and shorts; UNIF | Boots; Nifty Thrifty | Lipstick; MAC Pure Heroine

So, I'm pretty behind on posting some looks I photographed months ago now. These sunglasses are some of my favorite. Originally $130, got them for $30, hell yeah! Gotta love the deals at Nordstrom Rack. If you guys couldn't tell, I have a serious obsession with UNIF. Yeah. These vintage leather boots I got from Nifty Thrifty, and I absolutely love them. I've been wearing them more often than not since I got them. Took a few times to break them in, but now that I have, they're perfect!

What's new with you guys? Got Halloween plans?

Record Inspiration



Jacket and bralette; UNIF | Shorts; Bad Vibes via Tunnel Vision ; Necklace; Forever 21 | Lipstick; MAC's "Pure Heroine"

I shot these with one of my good friends Demi a couple weeks ago. We pulled inspiration from a few different sources to create these images. For those of you who know me, you know that music has always been a huge part of my life. So we pulled inspiration from that and ran with it. I love how these came out. In case you guys are wondering, here's the bands of the records pictures: WhirrThe Chain Gang of 1974Mansions, and Joseph Arthur. All records that I love. Whirr's "Sway" is the newest to the collection, and it's a great one. The Chain Gang of 1974's "Wayward Fire" isn't a new release, but it's still one of my favorites. The Mansions record is actually a test press of their album "Dig Up The Dead" that I won a few years ago. Then Joseph Arthur, a record I picked up while in Portland, because why not buy records while in Portland, am I right?
Life has been busy, but good lately. Keeping busy with school, work, and the boy. I have been missing my best friend pretty bad though. Come back from Arizona already, Megan!

Hope you all are well.
