Trends I am over & Styles you won't catch me in. The alternatives I would rather see.

Let me start this off by saying in no way am I wanting to offend anyone with what I am about to post. I have seen these styles and trends on others and I do see them pull it all off. However, they do not settle well with me and I do not want to sport them.













       Fishnet tights! fishnet tights? I have rocked these in my early years. By early I mean EARLY. I am talking my gothic phase in elementary and middle school. Purchased in the adult section with the help of my mom or at Hot Topic. I mean... Here is my sister and me years ago. I was in 7th grade. My sister and I are wearing them as shirts and have worn the tights as well.  They are just not for me anymore. I have done them, I did them often. I am over it.


     I would say the alternative to this trend of tights under jeans would be a simpler tight. I really enjoy how girls are pressing flowers under nude tights. It is so romantic and pretty. God forbid you had to pee in public and rearrange those delicate flowers, but it just looks gorgeous. Definitely not practical. Another alternative is beaded or sparkly tights. It adds detail and interest without looking too young.


     I like the look and all, but again, this just brings back memories of adolescent awkwardness I do not ever want to relive.















     Never will I ever sport this upcoming trend. Sorry Rihanna. Not even your iconic fashionista-self can not change this dead-set mind.


     Camouflage is another of those styles I relate to childhood or simply what it was made for: hunting. I find it unattractive. I have tinkered with this look a few times. I had one jacket my sister and I both got. It was okay, but every time I wore it I felt out of place. It is not my style.


     An alternative I would rather see pop up is watercolor fabrics. I compare the two together due to the collision of colors randomly placed. Water color is much more appealing to the eye. It is fluid where it collides verses camouflage are divided and cut-out.  Aka *cut it out* with the camouflage and bring in the watercolor!















     This one might sound harsher than intended. I can not find any better term to describe this fabric I just can not stand. Floral fabric that looks cheap. Often used in cheaper brand stores such as Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe. It is cutesy and I can see where that is appealing to some girls, but for me I can not stand a cheap floral fabric.


     Cheap floral fabric to me are the ones with wide set flowers. There is little to no detail in them and/or the colors are too bright. They look too feminine -- in a bad way. A great floral is usually full of detail and the color hues go well together. As above you see a vibrant blue and pink. They are pretty colors but do not compliment one another. Verses the orange skirt with orange/white/red/black tones really flows well.


The alternative is just simply invest in a better fabric. Do not go cheap on a dress because ultimately you will look more put together with the better print.




















    Here is just a little piece of fashion I never thought
    I would touch: wide leg pant. Not sure if these are
    classified as coulettes as well? Whatever. I would have
    never in all my years thought I would wear anything other
    than tight pants. These are flowy, elongate your legs and
    thus you look slimmer. I have a pair I plan on photographing
    soon. They are so comfortable and flattering I am so mad
    at myself for not discovering them sooner.










What do you think of my choices? 
Think I am nuts? 
Comment below and let me know what yours are!

Treat every day like it is Valentine's Day.

 Treat every day like it is Valentine's Day.

This is a stupid holiday in my opinion.
I am a sappy gal, don't get me wrong. Get me flowers and chocolates.
I am simple. I do not want diamonds or a 5 star dinner.
I just want attention, love and adrenaline ;)


I believe strongly you should treat any day and every day like Valentine's Day. Why settle for one with someone you love? That does not mean gifts and expensive trips. Simply put give them your attention and affection.


 My boo-thang and I got together quick. I believe if you have a connection with someone why play games? I am 24 years old. The rules of dating and one night stands are a joke. If you found someone awesome jump on it quickly. They will get to know you sooner or later anyways, who cares if they find you crazy.


You could loose them if you wait too long.

Pardon my Obsession






JULIA BRANT MAGNOLIA JACKET marshalls
FAUX LEATHER CROSS-BODY BAG wet seal
JEFFREY CAMPBELL RUM MOTO BOOT nasty gal
CHOKER forever21 (sold out)
SHORTS local shop
BELT yard sale
SHIRT diy



 Pardon my obsession.. but I love my style.

My Clothing > People. Why?
My clothes do what I want. People bug the s*** out of me.
My clothes do not speak. People won't shut the f*** up.
My clothes do the speaking for me. People... bug the s*** out of me.


I have a long term relationship going with my clothes and it is going great! Let us just call them 'he.' He makes me feel great about myself. I can express who I am in front of him. He gives me space when we just do not click together. And he does not mind sharing me with others when we do not click. Aka I can change him and mix-and-match whenever I please.


I have a boyfriend. Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and I will be spending it with my lovely lad. He is surprising me with what we are doing.. That being said I asked what I can wear then and he just answered pants and normal shoes. To me heels are my norm, so bad choice of words for him.

I hope if you are not spending Valentine's Day with a significant other you spend it on yourself. Easier said than done. But remember that you are the only you in this world full of 1827498104701827048120847081204908274 people... that is amazing! Love yourself. For now enjoy you and Parks and Rec says "Treat Yo-self!"

GOLD + PAISLEY




STRIPED TURTLENECK SWEATER zara
GOLD PAISLEY PANT thrift
FAUX SUEDE BEIGE WEDGE gojane




Goal: Wear less black.
Question: Is wearing grey cheating?


I recently got these pants altered. They are not perfect but if you had seen them before you would love the transformation. I have been holding these hostage in a drawer for over a year hoping to get them fitted. The button clamps at the waist as you can tell do not fit me well...opps. But I honestly do not care if they pop out like that.


Does that make me lazy or just stupid?


Gold has never been my color. But these pants just called to me.
Hope to be posting more soon.
