Reclaimed Vintage: 60’s Inspired ( What I Wore to College Fashion Week )

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!

Accessory Overhaul #2

20140804-223808-81488418.jpg So, badazz jewelry is pretty much my favorite thing since sliced (gluten-free) bread. I did an Accessory Overhaul post waaaayy too long ago, and since it seemed to be a hit, I’m gunna make this a little running post every once in awhile. Here’s some of the cool stuff I’ve scored since then::

20140804-235708-86228338.jpg Have you ever seen something so b-e-a-utiful? No. You haven’t. It’s going to fit seamlessly into the white + cream + gold + purple thing I’ve got goin’ on in my room. AND it was only $40. What a steal.

Also, I have a little announcement for y’all:: I am starting my own ROAWO jewelry line launching next month ( hopefully ). After looking around ( too much ) online and in stores, I’ve gotten sick of the jewelry I see everyone and their moms wearing.. And it’s hard for me to find pieces that fit my style at ( relatively ) good prices. So, I’ve started to collect objects/pendants/rocks + good-quality beads/chains/etc. that are one-of-a-kind to create jewelry that no one else will have. I’ll be hosting a giveaway once I get my Etsy shop up and running ( follow me on Instagram for updates ). In the meantime, here’s a lil’ sneak peek of what I’ve collected in Colorado, thus far::

Casual Monday: Overalls are Rad, Right?

I’m loving a little overall action for both Fall, Spring, and Summer. If you do them right, you feel a little more like a chiller, and a little less like a giant 5-year-old. Free People makes these awesome overalls, and they really aren’t THAT expensive. Also, look at it this way: overalls have been in style since forever, and you’ve probably worn them since infancy…. what an investment, right?

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.
