The Calm Before the Storm

School Days. I literally love my school. As much as I hate a lot of the teachers, the administration at times, and some other little things, I have a general love for my school. I love that I am able to dress however I want and as creatively as I want without looking weird or like I'm doing too much. How I dress is literally my outlet for all creativity. When I was younger, I loved to draw potential outfits. Of course back then everything matched like if I had a star on the shirt, I added the same star to the shoes I had my model wearing. But, I'm able to express how I feel through my clothing mixing and matching things as I see fit.
On this particular day, I was as usual stumped at what to wear in the morning.Then I realized that I had never worn this particular top. This shirt was actually a dress that I found on one of my many thrift store trips, but of course I didn't like how it originally was made so I made some minor alterations. Also from the extra material that I had from the alterations, I created a little headband that has been worn in a previous post. Altering things from the thrift store is so fun for me and there are a few items that I'll be posting this season that I've altered so I'll be sure to point them out. Hope you all are enjoying the changing of the seasons, I know I am.
Until Next Time,

It's Beginning to Feel Like Fall

 Ahhhhh Fall is here. It can be felt in the change of temperature, seen as many throw on light jackets, and experienced as I have terrible allergies. I absolutely love the fall, its my favorite season. I love the fashion of the fall as we transition from crop tops and shorts, to light jackets and printed pants. The changing of leaves and the changing of colors in wardrobes to deep and vivid oxbloods, emeralds, and greys.  I don't know why I can't stop my life from being continuously busy and chaotic. I just finished a major performance on Sunday and now I must balance school, work, and our homecoming fashion show. In my last post, I told you all I would be switching my hair again, so yes I'm back to the long hair. The short hair was fun but it's more so a summer look, I love my long curls. 
This posts outfit was really random, it was somewhat inspired by one of my line sisters. She has the coolest vintage wardrobe full of oversize thrifted blazers, vests, and cool brooches. I'll definitely have to do a feature on her soon. Thus when getting dressed on this particular day, I threw together a fully thrifted outfit and paired it with booties. You'll see throughout the fall season that I truly love booties and I'm looking to add more to my shoe collection. Can't wait to show you all the newest fall trends! 

Until Next Time

As Summer Fades Away

Is it September already? It's so crazy how fast time flies in my life. It feels like just a minute ago it was the middle of the summer and now I'm back in school mode. My first 2 years of school went by in literally the blink of an eye and I'm so excited to see all that this junior year holds for me.  I already know that things will be great between being a new member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated, my new job, working for our homecoming fashion show, and my other obligations. The weather in DC is so unpredictable. One moment it will be super hot and the next minute you could need a light jacket. On this particular day, the weather was a little breezy so I chose to throw on one of my favorite short suits. The weird part about this outfit is that I actually bought these shorts and this blazer at 2 separate times not even realizing that they were a set but I sure am glad that I did. I wish I took a closer picture of my blouse so you all could get the true effect of how cool the plaid is in this thrift store find. I can't wait for the weather to begin cooling down because I absolutely love fall clothing. In honor of the changing seasons, I will have changing hair again soon so look out. 

Until Next Time,
