OOTD: December 2nd

For the first time in the past few years, I didn’t actually go all out during Black Friday. Poor college student syndrome I call it. I did however acquire these cute plum booties from Rack Room Shoes. It’s still pretty warm in California, so I like to turn my summer dresses into fall outfits. I was so excited to find a cardigan with elbow patches at a thrifting event, and my knee high socks are finally being put to use.

Girls’ Night Out – Holiday Shopping

Unless you’re the type of person who does their holiday shopping mid-summer, the mad rush of shopping has just begun. Stores are preparing for the notorious Black Friday and Cyber Monday, malls are playing the Carol of the Bells, and Bath and Body Works has all their Christmas scents lined up. There is a sort of hype in the air; an excitement, a warmth. If you plan on participating in the chaos that is Black Friday, or leftover Saturday, take some friends along, and dress up! Here are two outfit ideas for a girls’ night out of holiday shopping:

Image

First and foremost: wear comfortable shoes. I prefer my combat boots. In addition, I am wearing one of my favorite summer dresses turned fall with my cut-out black tights and burnt orange cardigan. To add that touch of class, I am wearing my pearl necklace (always does the trick). Rebecca is wearing this great maroon and dark navy top from Target, black leggings, a gold collar necklace, and a gold dragon ear-cuff.

So there you have it: two different takes on fall outfits. I hope this is of some inspiration for the holidays 🙂

I’m feeling a little under the weather today, so to counteract the sniffles, I’m dressing it up – casually. I kind of wear a lot of black during the fall and winter. A lot. So it’s no surprise that that is what I turned to in my closet this morning. Here is the result. Happy Friday!

Here is today’s outfit of the day. My thrifted orange cardigan is my new favorite piece to wear. The dress is also thrifted: from Goodwill. It’s more retro than anything, but I toned it down by adding a belt from Forever 21.

Happy November! Today I am wearing some thrifted items: the orange cardigan and bird printed top. It’s a bit of warm November here, so I decided to wear my pleated Forever 21 skirt with thigh-length stockings and combat boots. This look seems to be popular on campus; I can’t help but conform!

More OOTD’s coming soon!

Halloween: Mean Girl’s Mouse

Halloween: Mean Girl's Mouse

Happy Halloween! Best excuse to wear excessive make up and eat unhealthy amounts of candy with minimal judgement.

For you last minute Halloween-ers who just want candy: Here is a cute costume that is easy to put together (as modeled by Palak). Look familiar? http://igniteuf.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Im-a-mouse.jpg

Her dress is from Forever 21 and the ear cuff is from OKA Jewelry. Even though the cuff has an elephant on it, I still think it goes well with the overall mouse theme. What I love most about the ear cuff is that it’s not just costume jewelry. It’s very simple and dainty, and perfect for any fall outfit. It’s easy to wear, and it’s a nice accessory to have in your collection.

Hope everyone has a fun night!

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!
