tired of waiting

Salutations, babes!
I've been very tired lately. I hate living a routine, and it feels like nothing exciting is happening. Don't get me wrong, life is what you make it, but I can't be positive all the time. It's really hard to be positive when you're static. Maybe that's my problem... I'm greatly considering to pick up jogging in the mornings. Hopefully that will help me get out of this funk. I'm just tired of waiting (for moving and film school tbh)

ANYWAYS, I feel like I should care more about NYFW (and LFW and basically every fashion week) than I actually do. Don't get me wrong, I always drool over all the amazing, unique pieces that hit the runway every season. But does anyone else find it so overwhelming? There are so many designers and such little time! And on top of that, I'm only hurting myself, because, let's face it, I can't afford any of the wearable art or anything that comes remotely close to it. I don't mean to be a negative Nancy about this, but is it frustrating for anyone else? Maybe I'm so grumpy about Fashion Week, because deep down I just want to drool over everything IRL. I would love to be able to attend at least one event in New York City for Fashion Week once in my lifetime. I don't know if it will ever even happen, but I feel like it's a nice (slight-realistic) long-term goal.

All this being said, I do want to talk about one designer that is really, really important to me. DI$COUNT UNIVER$E is basically everything I've ever wanted in clothing and more. Although I don't own a lot of pieces, sequins are my absolute favorite thing to add to an outfit. Don't get me wrong, vintage clothing will always be the top dog in my heart, but oh man, DI$COUNT knows what they are doing, let me tell ya.
 I think the reason why I love them so much is the fact that I have never seen anything else like it. I'm trying to branch out (even more, I suppose) into a very unique, eclectic look for myself. Besides attending film school and moving out, it looks like it is my year's goal I have set for myself. At the same time, I have to tone it down for work. Luckily, I'm grateful enough to have a job where I can still flaunt my personal style, it's just in a different way than what I would wear to a lunch date with pals or a concert (aka get dressed up and chill around the house, but you know what I mean). It's as if there are two separate versions of me when it comes to my style nowadays. There's work/business Tessa who wears midi pencil skirts, stiletto heels, and blazers. Then, there's full peacock Tessa who sports funky patterns, mismatch ensembles, and bright colors.
Here's my favorite video of Betsey Johnson that I've been meaning to share with y'all! Whenever I feel uninspired I always watch this, and feel so much better about myself.

P.S. I applied for a sales position at LUSH cosmetics so please cross your lovely fingers for me!!

Hey there, humans!
A few weeks ago the amazing Disha took some wicked cool photos of the lovely Cass and I. Hope you enjoy~
P.S. I've changed my hair again (which some of you might already know hehe)!

sneeze attack

Howdy, fellow humans!
I just wanted to share this simple outfit I wore to work the other day.* It's getting chilly again in Texas so I am able to pull out all of my warm coats for one last go-around! It's weird though, it feels like everyday this week has been a totally different climate. I don't mind it one bit, but it's taking a huge toll on my allergies. That being said, I think I might have a sinus infection! Which is really bad, because I'm going out of town to film a web series (that I'm acting in!) this weekend. Hopefully I can at least get it under control (aka only have a sneeze attack 50 times in a day vs. 5000). Anyways, nothing else is new with me. I hope all is well with all you cool cats!

*I would just like to note how amazing my eyebrows looked. I've been experimenting with new products and new ways to fill them in!
