I absolutely love this channel on youtube. The youtube channel is called clothesencounters. These two ladies put together wonderful outfits from thrift stores, the buffalo exchange, urban outffiters and american apparel. And the pieces they manage to put together are pieces I wish I had in my wardrobe. The vid above is basically their take on fall trends.

Yesterday afternoon I was bored out of my mind, so I decided to go thrifting. I'll admit I've never gone thrifting before because when I thought of thrift I thought about second- hand. This shopping trip came to mind when I saw thrifting hauls on youtube. Let me tell you one thing people the first time you walk into a thrift store, you will feel really overwhelmed both by smell and all the clothing and things you see around you. But you need to take a deep breath and relax. Once you do that the experience is really amazing and fun. I came across a tanish shoulder bag that I fell in love with, I think its mainly because of the gold clasp. I then went to the jewelry side of the store where I found vintage-esk earrings. If you do end up buying earrings from a thrift or vintage store remember that you need to disinfect it, and the best way to do that is to clean it with rubbing alcohol.......soap and water will not do the trick.
I really enjoyed my shopping trip to the thrift store and I see another thrifting haul in the near future.
p.s. had to use my webcam to take the pics, my camera broke.

I am very proud of myself because I was able to have a new post
every other day. I really don't want that to stop but as
midterms approach I'm pretty sure that will all change.
So now during the following week, there will be a new post
every two days or three days. Yes I know its sad, but im really
hoping I do well on my midterms and I'm pretty sure
you guys want me to do well too. But who knows
maybe when I take a break from studying I might put
up two posts in one day.

I was on youtube today and came across a clip from Aladdin. And then it crossed my mind...why not have a disney classic night. Disney has had a major influence in my upbringing..it didn't raise me or anything, but it was a major part of my childhood. I remember being four or five and watching Cinderella everyday. It kind of wore my mother out, but I wanted to be like Cinderella: become a princess and marry a prince.(Sigh) that still hasn't happened but who knows what's in my future.

This collection was absolutely beautiful. It reminded me of a whimsical garden. It was more mother nature meets fairytale. Everything from the delicate fabric to the detail that went into each piece made this collection stunning. Sarah Burton McQueen's assistant for fourteen years did an amazing job. She made a collection that embodied McQueen as a person and a designer.
LONG LIVE MCQUEEN

honestly im sick of the people who say you can't dress up a frilly feminine dress with a huge bag. There's no rule that says "thou shall not wear dress with huge bag". To me its honestly whatever looks good. If the ensemble is on point then who cares how big the bag is. It needs to all come together. Which basically means UNITY. Sure dress it up with a clutch but you can dress it up with a HUGE CITY BAG.
Welcome to my new blog people. For some reason I wasn't really feeling my old blog. As I get older my style changes and the music I listen to changes as well. So it's more of a new beginning. On my blog you'll find everything from fashion, music, photography and me everyday. So sometimes I might blog about my day and things I found interesting or things I bought that day (I know interesting) I promise you I will not bore you :)
So stay tuned.
