Who said prints were DYING??

It was to nice outside not to wear a skirt,,granted it was 50 degrees but the gold ol' sunshine made it feel 10x's better. I love mixing prints and this was no exception. I got this tweed blazer from Torrid and the skirt from Target mixed random accessories.

What do you guys think of prints?

 It's midterm week, which I think are weeks and I'm dying!! Back to studying and projects they are my weekend pleasure (LIES)

Coat Fever!! Yeah I said it

I actually can't wait until the FALL/WINTER..some may not like it BUT I do. There is something about being bundled up in coats, boots, and the like that makes me feel so GOOD!

Winter is the best excuse to layer, layer, and layer some more and for that I am ecstatic! I am pulling out scarves, coats, and boots but I cant help want to get some new things for the brutal weather us Chicagoans are usually battered with every winter. Blizzard of 2011 most horrible experience ever, so I've been looking.

I am really interested into so many looks that I've narrowed some possible purchases down to 4 coats that I'm Dying over. Like I've mentioned in my earlier post I love things out of the ordinary and these coats are no exception. Some are traditional with a flair but others are "BAD" in a good way.

I searched many websites and this is what I found.


I am thinking pairing some leatherette leggings, rich red scarf, and with leopard print wedges from the coat from asos, but I am loving the print coat.

Ugh!! decisions, decisions..

Leave a comment loves and I'll chat with you guys later

Usually in fashion sticking to one type of style is not a good thing, hence fashion is always changing and never is the same, sure there is somethings that comes back from a era before, our recent trends being vintage and minimalist, which seem to re-invent themselves whenever the economy decideds to "re-invent" or fail (honestly) we become less reliant on new ideas and stagnant on reliable items HOWEVER!!!!!!!! BLAH BLAH BLAH


There is no fun being part of the ordinary (FOR ME) being out of the ordinary is my take on self expression, take Janelle Monae or we all know Lady Gaga; (I'm not that extreme) but these people help solidify the need for me to be expressive in my own way.. Yeah you get the stares and the occassional laughs but WHO GIVES A F**K,  like it or not we will all be judged but these people on make it unbelievablely hot!  Weirdness and all.

Oceanic Waters...THEN...emerge beauty

Sara Burton again has created a collection Mr. McQueen himself would likely be proud of. There is such an attention to the detail, drape, and fit represented in every piece.

To me this is a modern day goddess of the sea which has every texture, tone, and color. BUT with a dark side..... LOVE! Always fun to have a good and bad side.

It's as if the collection begins smooth, very fresh and easy, pure then progresses into something rough, harsh and dark.

This is one of my Favorite collections by Burton I love the very McQueen feel but a touch that is strictly her own. She has bought a femininity to the collection that McQueen didn't, whom of course had a more structured and tailored silhouette.

I am anticipating more from her soon. Maybe she could do a capsule collection H&M or Target maybe hint.hint....Sarah Burton Pullleazzee!

Just a thought! :)

So I have been M.I.A due to work, school, and just plain LAZZZYYY! Yes I know not really good excuses but sue me, I couldn't help it the laziness took OVER!!

Since I last updated I have been through a lot BUT I'm gunning for a big comeback considering I've changed jobs and my major like underwear! HAHA

Seriously, I needed a clearer head and my focus has came back to me and I am striving for it, as I type.

Leave me some feedback....See ya Lata Explorer's!
