OOTD: October 25th

OOTD: October 25th

TGIF. If you’re not spending your weekend cooped up in various study boxes crying over how many midterms you have, this is the perfect outfit for a night out! On top I am wearing an asymmetrical top that can be worn several ways – essentially its just a circle of cloth with arm holes that can be draped over your torso however which way. This item was thrifted. On bottom I am wearing a short black pencil skirt by Bloom, and flats by HotCakes.

The main statement of this outfit is, of course, the gold necklace and bracelet set! These were sent to me from OKA Jewelry, and I can’t say I’ve every owned anything like it! It’s out of my comfort zone, but once I experimented with it, I saw many wardrobe combination possibilities.

So this is what I came up with! I think that the gold goes very nicely with dark navy. I feel like this jewelry will also go great with the “little black dress.” Another possibility would be to wear this jewelry for Halloween! OKA Jewelry also sells a great deal of costume jewelry for fun occasions. I imagine the necklace would go well with an Egyptian-styled costume.

Hope this is of inspiration for a fancy Friday.

College Fashion – Twerk Team Sorority Fashion Shoot

As promised, here is the long awaited suite photo shoot! Huge thanks to all these lovely ladies who let me play photographer 🙂

Image

We call ourselves the Twerk Team Sorority. The theme for this photo shoot is Girls Night Out.

First up we have Palak sporting light pastels for an overall casual, yet cutesy look. The grey wedge heels make this look appropriate for a nice dinner out at let’s say… BJ’s!

Image

Next we have Maxine, pulling off my dream outfit. Here we have all the fall essentials displayed at once: the black circle skirt, a beret/beanie, stockings, black boots, and a long sleeve crop top. Black and maroon are worn best during the fall.

Image

Again with black and maroon, we have Christina also sporting a black circle skirt (I’m telling you – a must have). Circle skirts are best worn with either a cropped top or by tucking the top into the skirt.

Image

Next we have Alyssa wearing all dark navy blue – another great color for fall if you’re not into the whole maroon palette. I remember when tucking in shirts was regarded as dorky, but now it is very fashionable with the styles they are coming out with today.

Image

If you live in SoCal, it’s still pretty warm here. No need for heavy coats or many layers. Here we have Rebecca wearing a patterned dress suitable for most any season, but toned down by a black cardigan.

Image

Let’s take a moment to appreciate the craftsmanship of this waterfall braid (done by Waing, bow added by Cindy).

Image

Next we have Cindy, looking cute as ever in a beautiful flowered top from Forever 21. You can never go wrong with neutrals and black pumps – stay classy.

Image

And now we have Waing, pulling off a black laced romper (I am so jealous). Like I said, it’s still pretty warm in SoCal, but as long as you stay with dark colors, you can still incorporate summer clothes into your fall closet.

Image

Here is yet another example of combining summer wear with fall wear. Here is Christina pairing white lace shorts with a warm-toned sweater and neutral flats. She is not usually this serious.

Image

And now for Natalie (who I think looks likes Anna Kendrick). She looks absolutely adorable in this 50’s themed blue dress with cutouts, and curled ringlets.

Image

Is that the black circle skirt you’ve been blogging about in every single post lately, you ask? Yes, yes it is. You must wear it every single day! I do.

Image

Phew that was a long post. Surely that counts for an entire month of blogging! I hope you enjoyed. Comment down below which outfit is your favorite!

OOTD: October 15th

Ever since I came to college, I have worn this skirt most every day. I suppose that’s an exaggeration, but I just can’t stop wearing it. So here is yet another OOTD with me wearing the infamous black circle skirt.

Image

 

Also, my awesome suite mate curled my hair for me (since I have difficulties understanding hair styling technique).

Image

 

On top of that, I wore a pair of sunglasses my volunteer group found in the sand during our beach clean-up. They are a bit crooked, but overall in pretty good shape. I like their vintage style.

Image

And finally, the accessories: a Betty Boop watch with the stackable bracelets from OKA Jewelry.

Coming up: This Friday (hopefully), I will be having a photo shoot with my suite mates. Which means lots and lots of outfits, in one day! That should make up for my relative lack of presence on WordPress lately.

That’s all for today.

OOTD: October 10th

Being at college for the past couple of weeks has opened me up to something greater than small town fashion. Being in a greatly populated area has challenged me to play around with my style; I see so many people on the daily wearing clothing combinations I never thought of trying. So here is my take on college fashion.

Triathlon Man

I woke up early this morning to go see my amazing boyfriend do a triathlon. Today was our last day together. It’s too bad he had to spend it biking, swimming, and running while I probably walked a total of half a mile. He’s a stud.

Glitzy Glam

My friend from across the country just sent me this gift of a personalized hairbrush and compact mirror. I really like the fact that the compact mirror lights up. Yes, there is an “M” on both of them, but for privacy reasons I won’t give away my real name.

Both of these products can be found at http://shopglitzyglam.com.

The Headband

The Headband

One of the few things in fashion that is both stylish and functional. Looking at each photo, I can clearly see all the phases I went through during high school. There was the bow stage, the flower stage, the athletic stage, and currently as a soon to be college student, the minimal stage. For the most part, I don’t actually like wearing headbands anymore – the exception being to go workout and not having my overgrown bangs whacking against my face while I try to see where I’m running. But I thought I would put a little collage together as a bit of inspiration.
