LACE & LEATHER

I always love to find gems in my parent's closet! The gem I stumbled across this time was a leather jacket that my mother didn't even remember that she had and boy was it a beauty! It was a little over sized for me, but over sized things are always wonderful in my opinion. Pairing the jacket with this lace shirt and lime green clutch really brought my outfit to life. Tell me what you think.






1. Lace Shirt - Rue 21
2. High Waist Shorts - Forever 21
3. Leather Jacket - Mom's
4. Spiked Heels - Karmaloop
5. Lime Green Clutch - Charlotte Russe

Also, I'm excited to share with you guys that I am the cover girl for the August issue of a women's magazine here in my city of North Carolina. I will be on stands in over 100 different locations and this is definitely a stepping stone towards my fashionable future!

A DAY LATE.

I was a little late for dressing for Independence Day, seeing that this outfit literally came the day after. I've never been too big on dressing for holidays and in the end, I loved putting all of this red together. Red is a bold color, but looks so good against the skin.

LONG JOHN CROP TOP

Lately, I've been working more and more on creating things, checking out DIY tutorials, and sketching my own ideas. I am an Apparel Design major at my university and now that I'm venturing towards my late two years, it's time to start creating my own things. I found an old long john top in my closet and decided to quickly construct it into a simple, sleeveless crop top. I'm going to soon take the remaining pieces, such as the sleeves and collar, and turn it into a matching high waist skirt.








1. Crop Top - Hand Made
2. Dress turned skirt - H&M
3. Sandals - Shoedazzle
4. Vintage Baltimore Baseball Jersey - Dad's Closet

ADVENTURE TIME!

I was given the opportunity to collaborate with another Storenvy store called 'Amni Fashion'. They sent me this colorful, eccentric, awesome 'Adventure Time' dress and I instantly fell in love because I am a fan of the show.  Plus, the material of it was very smooth and fit perfectly to my body. You can check out more of their items over at http://amnifashion.com

FUNDRAISER

Everyone has a dream, right? Of course. It has always been my dream to visit New York City and be a part of the fashion scene there in someway. After college, I want to obtain a career in the fashion industry, specifically in New York, but I want to have the opportunity to intern there first before I take the big leap in moving there. I've started this fundraiser to help me raise money so that when I do score an internship (which I know I can) I will have the correct funds for housing/living. Any dollar amount can help, even one dollar! So far, I've gotten about three donations but I would really love to have more. Please click the link below to donate and I promise, it's not spam at all!


Thank you in advance!
