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!

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::

Floral Maxi :: ROAWO Floral Maxi :: ROAWO

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?

Fall Favorites x ASOS & more!

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 ::

So, Did you catch my ballin’ interview with my friend Sarah of Serendipity Fine Lines on Monday? ( << If not, you GOTTA check it out. She’s amazing.)

Are y’all getting super pumped about my upcoming giveaway?? Allll the gift basket items are coming in the mail ( rather slowly ), and I cannnnnot wait to share the amazing products Meghan ( from Boho Nouveau ) & I have chosen for the giveaway! And remember to Follow Ramblings of a Wild One on:

THE OUTNET.COM :: Best Shoes for the Transition from Summer to Fall

shoes the outnet Happpy Tuesday, gal pals.

I thought I’d celebrate the end of Monday ( whoop, whoop, one day closer to the weekend! ) with another post featuring more of my must-haves from The Outnet.

In case you haven’t been following ROAWO + my ongoing obsession with The Outnet ( ummm, why not? ), you can find the Best of Pants, Shorts, & Skirts here, the Best of Handbags here, & the Best of Dresses & Jumpers here.

As we transition from Summer to Fall, the shoe game changes big time. We start shifting towards boots, darker colors, & an overall heavier look. As much as I LOVE Summer ( really, it’s my favorite season ), I can’t get over how badass Fall & Winter shoes are. I die for anything studded & leather.

On that note, here are some of my top transitional shoes from Summer to Fall/Winter. I start off with some heavier sandals & end with a couple pairs of bad-bitch boots for your inner-Kardashian ::

The Outnet Shoes

1. Schutz // 2. Jean Michel Cazabat // 3. 12th Street by Cynthia Vincent // 4. DVF ( Only 1 pair left! ) // 5. Robert Clergerie // 6. Jimmy Choo ( << I die & Only 1 pair left! ) // 7. Schutz // 8. Schutz // 9. Pour la Victoire

Like I’ve said a trillion-billion times before, The Outnet sells-out fast because, well, look at those freakin’ prices… And how to-die-for are numbers 6, 7 & 9 ?? Those are my tippity-top picks for the week!

Which shoes are your favorite ??

Basically, since I’ve been home from a looooong summer of traveling, my activities have included: online shopping, cuddling with my dog, talking to my dog like he’s a human ( I’m seriously waiting for him to respond one day. Its coming, I know it. ), online shopping, cooking / baking, writing, sleeping, and .. did I say online shopping?

Luckily for y’all, I’ve been looking around online a LOT ( even more than usual ), so I have a whole new round-up of favorites to share.

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::
