Eeeeeek, I’m so excited to show off this outfit!

This weekend, I jetted off to San Francisco for College Fashion Week ( << if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already seen a million pictures ). Obviously, for an event like that, I had to find the perfect outfit. When I came across this Reclaimed Vintage Co-Ordinate duo from ASOS, I knew I had to have it. How perfect is this 60’s-inspired combo. PLUS, it’s SO comfy it almost hurts.

I wore it with my favorite go-to wooden wedges ( I also love these suede heels with this outfit ), a couple gypsy-inspired necklaces, this cool AF snakeskin clutch, and my must-have bralette ( << because if I can get away with NOT wearing a real bra, I’m going to do it ). For the CFW Fashion Show, I rocked the bronzed-bombshell makeup that I talked about last week and a blowout ( called the Mai Tai ) by the Drybar in Union Square.

I’ll be posting the low-down on my new favorite app (<< helped me choose this little number for CFW) & all the details of my little San Fran getaway this week! Stay Tuned!

Balancing Act :: Floral, Fur & Studs

TGIF, My Fellow Freak-shows.

First things first: I have a very exciting announcement that I’m sharing with just about anyone who will listen.

I decided a couple of months ago that I was going to do a little life-switch-a-roo, and apply for some internships in Los Angeles. Ya know, keep myself on my toes. Being a Political Science Major, I didn’t think that I would find a company that would take me seriously, because I wanted to pursue an internship fashion/fashion PR, not Poli Sci. Welp, I was wrong. I interviewed with one of my favorite companies :: For Love and Lemons :: and got a job working as a PR intern! If you haven’t checked out this beyond amazing company…1) wtf? and 2) go. now. do it.

So, I’ll be moving out to the city of angels come January, and I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED. Basically, an opportunity like this is the reason I started ROAWO.. and all my work has definitely been worth it. For those of you who live in LA now: do y’all have any tips as far as living location, things I gotta do, etc? Comment/Contact me with your sage advice!

Now, onto the previously scheduled post::

Alright, I have something to admit. I’ve worn this dress at least 3920348302 times. Okay, well actually two times, but I get all weird when it comes to outfit-repeating. But, how could I help it??? Esp for summer, this dress is one of my favorites. It’s comfortable, airy, and well-fitting.

It is also sticky-bra/nip cover-friendly, which I like, because I hate underwire, real-people bras with a passion. I’m sorry, I’m not going to wear one of those contraptions unless I have to.

The best part? This maxi is under $40!

When it comes to my outfits, I diiiiee for texture mixing. I like the fur with the floral, to make the whole thing more animalistic & boho, and then the studs on the sandals add a little something different. My personal style is all about balancing a variety of contrasting styles that end up coming together as a finished product. I’m not refined & polished, boheme & free spirited, or a bad-ass leather/studded shoes fanatic… I take elements of all of those ‘types’ to make a little something of my own. Ya Dig?

P.S. Will any of y’all be at Austin City Limits this weekend? I’m going so get excited for a little wrap-up post of the festival, along with a post about some new Redken products I’ve received recently. Two words: colored. hair. How perfect that they came just in time for ACL?

Happy Wednesday, y’all!

The other day I was meticulously organizing all of my fall favorites into my very neat bookmark folders: Clothing I want, Clothing I need, Shoes I want, Shoes I need, Accessories I want, Accessories I…. you get the point. I’m crazy.

While I was tediously organizing, I noticed one thing that my bookmarked products had in common… most of them were from ASOS.com! Well-priced, trendy, lots to choose from, etc… no wonder, right?

With a couple of things from Nasty Gal + L.L. Bean and a LOT from ASOS, Here are some of my fall must-haves ::

Clothing Emergency ft. Free People, H&M, and Forever21

So, on my way back home (to Dallas/Fort Worth) from Los Angeles (Click here to see the coolest things about LA, according to a future-resident), I decided to deplane a little early in Austin, TX to go to the X-Games….. which was a totally spontaneous and exciting decision. The only problem: I’m a diva, which means I always check my big-ass suitcase, which means all of my belongings were in Dallas.. and I was in Austin with only a purse, two pairs of shoes in my carry-on tote, and exactly one outfit.. what I wore on the plane.

At this point, as you can imagine,  I had a little bit of bargain shopping to do. I headed over to the closest shopping complex in ATX [The Domain] and went directly to Neiman’s. Okay, thats not the bargain part.. but I’m addicted to Chanel makeup and I can’t stray from my loyalty to those products. The lady at the makeup counter totally hooked me up [and became one of my best friends] and gave me a full face of makeup, my essentials [here, here, and here] and a ton of samples of cleansers, moisturizers, perfumes, etc. Extremely helpful considering my situation.

Then, I needed clothes that weren’t going to cost me five bajillion dollars for a weekends worth of outfits. So I hit up Free People [favorite], H&M, and EVEN Forever21 [<– I was actually pleasantly surprised with what I found here.. usually not my style]. These stores sold clothing that ended up being perfect for the X-Games.. super light and airy for the sauna that is Austin, Texas.

These outfits were perfect for an event like the X-Games.. especially for the concerts. Basically each night consisted of idiots throwing their beverages around the crowd and bumping into everyone else, and these clothes held up nicely. I also wasn’t too concerned about them getting ruined. So, next time you are attending a festival, outdoor concert, etc. stop by a store like Forever21 or H&M and invest lightly in some cheap, trendy pieces.

OH:: and the X-Games were SO badass. I hate to admit it, but Kanye West’s performance was absolutely incredible.. Yes. I said it. He was really good. And yes, I kind of hate myself for coming to that conclusion.
