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?

First of all: I love florals. I’m not a girly-girl, okay, but I’m always down for a feminine, floral print. Usually, I pair it with leather, fur, or something contrasting like that to make me look not-so girly-gal-ish. Here, I added some converse for some down-to-earth vibes.

I like the sexiness of the neckline with the casual tennies. Also, I’ve worn this with a cream-colored, lace bralette and it looked b.a.ll.i.n.’. For real.
