Because I'm slacking on outfit posts, and because my life is busy, busy, busy (and I'm loving it!), here's some insight as to what's been going on with me via Instagram! (feel free to follow me: @maddiejayy)

Christine and I after her show!

Megan & I at bible study.

Silent Planet putting on a great set at Kuppajoe.

Cut my mom's hair at school on Saturday, and I am so proud of how it came out!!

Outfit for a little summer night get together with some friends.

My hair is getting blonder and blonder!

Had a 20's themed fashion show at school on Saturday! I helped out with makeup.

My baby, Truffles. PROTECTOR OF THE BALL

This is my other baby, Magic. Also Truffles' sister.

Lookin albino. My makeup was on point though.

Two of my best friends, Demi & Megan.

Forever looking infinitely cooler from behind some shades.

My good friend Christine's band, Amoret, playing at Fulton 55!

Chinese food = Me forever eating way too much.

Heading out the door in this gorgeous abalone necklace.

Forever 21 was having a buy 1 get 1 free on all their sale items. I couldn't walk away.

At the dentist, which I HATE. Nice, clean teeth though.

I've been keeping myself busy with school, and Kuppajoe, and friends. Another random thing, I have been getting a lot of people trying to define my style lately, and some of the quotes I've gotten are amazing! Here's some examples:

"Beautifully eccentric"
"Hippie meets early 90's goth"
"Flower child in the cemetery"
"Glamorous beatnik with a macabre flair"

I died when I heard half of these. I can see where they're coming from though. What do you guys think?

Fierce Creatures' Catacomb Party!

Last night was an incredible night for the Fresno community. Fresno locals, Fierce Creatures, had their huge CD release, known as the Catacomb Party, in downtown Fresno's Fulton Mall. It was a huge community event, and events like this haven't been seen here at Fulton Mall since the sixties. The turnout was amazing. Loads of great bands played, and so many different companies came out to support and sponsor. Food trucks, Fresno Brewing Company, Dusty Buns Bistro, and so much more. Seriously, last night made me overwhelmingly proud to be a Fresnan. The sense of community and the insane amount of talent last night was something indescribable. Check out KMPH's news bit on it here. Seriously thanks so much to Religious Appeal and Fierce Creatures for putting this event together.

Here's some instagram shots from the night!

Katie and I!

Have You Forgotten Me For Flowers In Your Hair?

Dress; MinkPink via NastyGal
Belt; Target
Shoes; Dolce Vita via Urban Outfitters
Turquoise choker & rings; Vintage
Pyramid ring; The Laundry Room

Let me apologize in advance for the shit ton of pictures. I was stoked on a lot of these shots and am absolutely in LOVE with this dress by Mink Pink! I'd had my eye on it for quite awhile, and when I saw that it went on sale on NastyGal, I jumped on it. It is seriously perfect. The lace, the bell sleeves. Ugh. My friend Megan Lane shot these, it was quite the adventure. We had cows mean mugging us, and we were sweating like crazy by the time we were done. Damn you Fresno and your hellish summers!

Blonde, Baby

Top; Forever 21
Shorts; Cheap Monday via Urban Outfitters
Boots; Kohl's
Turquoise rings; vintage

That's right, of all things, I went blonde. I'm actually loving it way more than I thought I would. My plan is to go platinum, but obviously that wasn't happening in one try with all the hair dye I've had on my hair previously (I've had my hair black for over two years.. That's a bitch to get out). I think it took me a total of six hours to get it to this color? Quite time consuming (turned into a triple process), but I'm loving the outcome! More of a red blonde right now, but I'm kind of obsessed with it! I may keep it like this for awhile before I try to get to platinum.
