Summer always goes by way too fast. Luckily, living in the warmer part of the Bay Area allows me to wear tanks and skirts even up till October sometimes! Brandy Melville may be every teeny bopper’s dream store, but I’m a fan due to it’s ’90s-meets-modern-day style. I’m especially a fan of their graphic tops, skirts, and basic tees that are super soft and comfy. You might say this moon phase tank totally has me “phasing” out of summer. :D
Even when I’m not dressed up as Lady Vader, sometimes I still feel like I’m channeling my inner Vader. I actually wore this outfit the other day to work and someone commented that my skirt looked like a cape. That may sound a little strange, but it actually felt like the perfect compliment considering Vader’s cape is a big part of his dark and looming presence. Even though this skirt is far from terrifying, maybe it’s enough to bring you to the dark side? :D
I don’t know if it’s just the math nerd or the fashion geek in me, but I’ve always been drawn to geometric patterned clothing. There’s something very logical about these kind of pieces – from the way the shapes in this blouse fit together like a puzzle or the way the square textures on the skirt are so evenly placed. I even love that the details on these shoes are laser-cut to precision. With all these shapes, patterns, and textures, I figured why not mix them all together? Happy Friday and have a logical and fabulous weekend!
There’s something so fun, vintage, and whimsical about animal prints. It’s actually quite silly if you think about a fish bone printed top being “cute”, but apparently that’s what this is! It might be the print or maybe the rolled up sleeveless cuffs, but this shirt definitely took me back to more of a ’50s inspired look, which is really how the rest of this outfit came to be. I definitely admire those girls who dress in vintage or vintage-like attire all the time, but if your’e like me and just want to add a touch of vintage to your wardrobe, I recommend 3 things to start with – T-strap sandals, red lipstick and something high waisted. So, what are your favorite vintage looks?
With fall just around the corner, it’s about time to pull out some transitional pieces of clothing. By “transitional”, I’m talking about pieces of clothing that can be worn in between seasons. For example, I love dresses like this one where you could wear them with sandals in the summer and tights and boots in the winter. Plus they are not only comfortable, but super easy to accessorize. Today I’m wearing my Millennium Falcon “potato chip” necklace made by my favorite laser cut jewelry makers, Unpossible Cuts. Last time I wore it, everyone thought it was a potato chip (at least in this photo). I guess I’ve been mistaken for a space slug! Happy Friday and have an awesome long weekend!
I must still have armor on the mind because today’s skirt definitely has an “armor” feel to it. I’m loving these gold and silver intricate beads on this skirt that make it way more metallic looking than it really is. Paired with one of my favorite shirts that combines Star Wars and a classic arcade game, it’s just a win-win situation. Even though this is a men’s shirt, tucking it in and rolling up the sleeves a tad bit really makes a difference to the fit, don’t you think?
I just realized it’s nearly the end of summer and I haven’t done my typical yearly wedding outfit post! Even if wedding season is almost over, this year I’ve been pretty inspired by armor (both seeing it in person in Paris and making armor for my Dragonslayer Ornstein cosplay) and with that, you’ll understand why I am loving this lace dress. The front lace designs remind me of something that might be on a shield or some medieval wear and the long sleeves make this dress something you could wear all year round. With so many weddings and so many dresses, it’s always nice to find something a little different. So, what is your go-to wedding outfit?
