50 percent off

♥ DIY bat clip ♥ Kohl's necklace ♥ vintage dress ♥ thrifted shoes ♥
Oh my goodness, hello everyone! I have been slacking so much lately, and I am so so sorry. I just got done doing costume crew for Rent, and that literally took up all my free time (plus I had to wear all black so I looked really boring for a week). But I promise I'm slowly but surely getting back into the hang of blogging- minus the fact that my camera has died and I can't find the charger...(it might be at home but I don't know.) Anyways, as you can tell from the last post and this one, I am orange now! I felt like it was really appropriate to do for the season, and I'm actually really happy how it came out. I was really afraid of what it would do with my pink hair, but I figured a way to get most of the pink out and ta-da (the secret is Lush's "BIG" shampoo)! The best thing about my orange hair is that I can wear red tops again, because with pink it just looked really bad. 
It's still really hot outside, but I'm making the best of it. I just can't wait to wear scarves and boots, okay!? I'm not too overwhelmed with homework right now, so it's pretty nice. I'm just soooo done with most of my classes and I can't wait for this semester to be over with. On the bright side, I've been acting in a few graduate theatre directing scenes, and I'm also going to be in a student's show, so that's good! But yes, overall, this semester needs to end already.
Below I've conjured up some of my biggest inspirations lately. Which is really funny, because my outfit above doesn't match this at all, haha. Although my taste seems to change each day, I've mainly been into pale blues, pumpkins, heels- shoes in general, mom jeans, and lingerie. So I hope you cool kitties enjoy the photos as much as I do! (and look forward to thigh-high boot inspo pics)
A moodboard I made for a photo shoot that I did this morning, that will be on The Pulp Zine later this month. (most photos can be found on rookiemag or tumblr)

cult leader

♥ Forever21 crop top ♥ gifted belt ♥ thrifted jeans ♥ Blue Velvet sunglasses ♥ thrifted saddle shoes ♥ Modcloth bag ♥ Claire's phone case ♥
Today I actually had some free time, and instead of doing my homework, I walked around the park with one of my friends, and actually got to dress up. It was so freaking hot outside and I immediately regretted wearing jeans, but whatever~ I'm sad to say I haven't been dressing up a lot lately due to the heat and classes, but hopefully that will change soon! I just need this weather to cooperate with me, you know?
Recently I was sent sent a Kohl's eyebrow kit to try out, and I finally got to photograph it! Although I really love how dark I can get my brows with it, I wasn't fond of the texture it leaves. I can't rub my eyebrows at all without getting some of the make up on my hand, and that doesn't even happen with my dollar store eyebrow make up. So if you never touch your eyebrows it's a pretty good kit to invest in, but I wouldn't get it again unfortunately.

filthy fall

♥ gifted shirt ♥ vintage skirt ♥ Adidas sneakers ♥ Urban Outfitters spike bracelet ♥ gifted bracelets ♥
Howdy friends! Life has been very crazy this past week. Between watching Pretty Little Liars, volunteering at the costume shop, and meeting my hero- Oh, what? YEAH, that's right! This past weekend I was graced by the magical presence of Betsey Johnson!!!! This woman was the reason I got into fashion, and I still can't believe I got to meet her! Of course, I couldn't go without making her a custom flower crown (that she is wearing in the picture below and SHE LOVED IT!)~ The minute she saw me, Betsey actually got up and hugged me, and I just don't have words to describe how happy I was. Gosh, I just can't stop looking at this photo of us. It was just the absolutely best day of my life (minus the fact that I was really sick but shhhhh). Meeting her was everything I have ever imagined and more. Betsey is just so angelic, bubbly, and dainty. AND DID I MENTION SHE DID A CARTWHEEL in the middle of Nordstrom (which is where I'm trying to get a Summer job)!? I still can't believe this happened to me *cue big fat smelly nerd grin* and also, if anyone is interested, I made it on Betsey's Insta page! 
A sneak peak of what to expect from The Pulp Zine later this week~ All I can say is that is filthy fashion inspired by John Waters, and art done by none other than Queen Essine

All right, I'm going to leave on a bit of inspiration. Fall is making it's way, and I couldn't be happier! Overcast, windy, rainy days is what I live for, and I feel like it's coming early (maybe just for me, haha). The best part about the cool weather is the fact that I finally get to start dressing up again (because I have seriously been wearing yoga pants and t-shirts lately since it is so dang hot). I can dream of owning Marc Jacobs newest daisy perfume and $500 coats and skirts, but when shopping on a budget, I can always depend on SheInside. The second college is all the pieces from the site I have been drooling over since they've been added! I mean c'mon, do you see that eye sweater!? It is everything I never knew I wanted/needed, and now I seriously cannot get enough of it.

damn fine cup of coffee

♥ diy flower crown ♥ thrifted/diy top ♥ necklace from some cute shop in Switzerland ♥ Forever21 leggings ♥
This weekend was one of the first in a while where I had absolutely nothing planned except for studying and homework. It was relaxed, but a bit depressing. Since I had nothing planned, I had the whole weekend to myself, and had a lot of time to think. I started thinking about how I don't really have many friends (and the ones I do have are busy a lot of the time or far away). It really bummed me out, and then I went deeper down the rabbit hole, and realized how homesick I've become. Most of my pals at school think it's funny I miss my parents and everyone so much...Ugh, I don't know. I just need to get busy so I don't get in this funk again. I guess this is what it feels like to be an adult. Once I adjust I think I'll get a lot better, but for now I want to go home! 

Well, on the bright side, I found a really great coffee shop in walking distance from my dorm. If there's anything in this world that makes me feel better (except shopping of course), it's coffee. And Wake The Dead has some kick ass coffee! So one of my friends and I ended up chilling out and studying for a majority of the day there. It almost immediately got me out of my funk with it's chill vibes and damn fine coffee.
A really great playlist Arabelle made that I've been jamming to all weekend.
Well, that's all that is new for me. I hope all of you had a great weekend. What helps you cool cats get out of that awful feeling funk?
P.S. Don't forget to enter my Oasap giveaway that ends tomorrow!

fashion fuddy-duddy

The pictures above is basically how my life has been lately. I've been wearing that outfit a lot, that tea has been my life (along with other herbs and chlorophyll hehe), new jacket, new shoes, and I doodle too much in class. Also, don't forget to enter my Oasap giveaway the ends 3 days!

Don't get me wrong, I love fashion as much as the next cool cat (if not more), but sometimes comfort is key. Especially when you have six college classes, and are in two theatre productions on top of a million extracurricular activies. Oh yeah, that's right, you heard me! Starting later this month I am on costume crew for Rent, and then in October I start rehearsal for another show, Blue Window (more details to come). So, yeah, life has been pretty great to me lately, but that being said, I have been super tired. On top of that, the weather has been brutal, so I've only been wearing really comfy, basic clothes. It breaks my heart to do this, but I would rather not drown in my own sweat at the moment. 

Now just because I've been a total fashion fuddy-duddy, doesn't mean I've been finding inspiration for Fall! My goal this season (when it FINALLY cools off) is to have lots of pastels, 1950s/60s vibes, and just be a sophisticated 12-year old dream boat that might possibly be a John Waters creation. But who knows what I'll end up wearing, that's just the goal here.
