Last Minute Costumes!

Last Minute Halloween Costumes
So I'm sure a lot of people out there are coming up with some interesting Halloween costumes to wear to different parties or events. But if you're anything like me who procrastinates when it comes to costumes, then quick and easy last minute ones are the way to go. Now I know some people go all out and buy their entire costume from head to toe, but I just hate the fact of buying a whole outfit that I know I'd probably never wear again. I prefer rummaging through my closet or the thrift store. You can definitely get creative with things you already own. I came up with two costume ideas for two different parties featuring a lot of what I already had in my closet.
First was this "Disneyland Tourist" costume. Super simple, except I had to keep explaining to people that although I had the ears, I wasn't Minnie Mouse! Haha! Everyone thought it was pretty clever for a last minute idea. Check out Jack Sparrow on the left and Psy aka Mr. Oppa Gangnam Style on the right ;) HEYYY SEXEH LADIES!

Then pin up girl! I was inspired by the whole navy pin up girl style and I really wanted to try those pin curls/victory rolls for the look. The cropped shirt, shorts, and garter were all found from the thrift store. That just goes to show that you don't have to spend very much to create something fun!

What are you guys planning to be for Halloween?

Sister Tag on YouTube!

My sister and I are pretty into YouTube lately, and her having her own channel, we decided to do the "sister tag" that's all over the YouTube community. Even though we're more than 2,000 miles away, we made it work ;) That's the power of technology.. lol! Sounds like a cheesy apple commercial. But anyways, check it out! It was pretty fun and interesting to see how much we knew each other and our likes & dislikes. I encourage any sisters to do this tag! YouTube or not!

Shop's on Vacaay!

Vacay time! Well, for my shop..
Le etsy shop is currently on vacation right now as I try to work on new designs and items to list up. Also, I'm making/designing products for Graffiti Beach so I don't want to overwhelm myself. I'm pretty excited for the new items coming soon! A lot more fall weather friendly items, although I'm thinking about still including some shorts. I mean one can never have too many pairs of shorts. Lately, I've been having this goal of waiting until I have a pretty full stock of items to reopen the shop from this short vacation. I think it would look a lot better aesthetically in my opinion. I just love looking through shops with lots of options to go through. I've even read somewhere (most likely an etsy tip) that it attracts more buyers as well. Anyways, check back soon at the shop for new items! I'll do a blog post once they're all up :)

Hey guys, just wanted to mention that my sister started up a youtube channel! It's a mixture of vlogs with her husband, hauls, some beauty stuff, etc! If you're into that go check her out ;) I know I'm pretty much into the whole beauty/fashion/vlogging youtube community so it's pretty cool to have my sister do her own thang! You'll liiiiiike!

"No Spend October"

No Spend October!
Similar to the idea of "No Shave November" that many of my guy friends take part in, I've decided to take the rest of this month of October to NOT SPEND ANYMORE MONEYYYY! Technically, it should be "No Spend November" since it rolls off the tongue a lot better, but I knew I couldn't wait that long for November to stop spending. I mean why not start now? So I guess it'll be a "No Spend October+November" up until the holidays. I'm officially going on a shopping ban! Seriously, this is much needed. I've probably spent a lot on buying clothes & what not for myself that my closets got an overflow of items. Plus there's so much I NEED to be saving up for! So posts about hauls and current buys will be paused for the mean time. Wish me luck!

Guilty Pleasure Buys

Utility Jackets/Anoraks
top left: M's Boutique - top right: Forever 21
bottom left: Nordstrom - bottom right: Thrifted

Current trend I'm loving? Utility jackets & anoraks! Especially military style ones. What can I say? You can never have too many utility jackets, and I think it's pretty essential for fall. Although I must say, it's still pretty damn hot here in southern Cali. *crosses fingers for colder weather* Believe it or not, I'm still looking for MORE to add to my collection. The newest addition and my current favorite right now is the jacket on the bottom left. Olive green with faux leather sleeves. Something about the contrast of faux leather sleeves that always gets me. Hint my spiked shoulder denim jacket in this post. Anyways, I found this jacket to be perfect! Ever since I saw the safari jacket that Zara makes, I instantly wanted it. But one, it sold out ridiculously fast making it impossible to get, and two, even if it was in stock I couldn't cough up that much $mula$ that I didn't have. So I searched high & low. And dunn dun duh dunn... I found it at nordstrom for a fraction of the price at Zara!

Blu Pepper Faux Leather Sleeve Utility Jacket (Juniors) $68 at Nordstrom

Love! Obsessed with anything olive green right now as well so it was perfect! Can not wait for those colder days so I can wear this out already!

Featured in Graffiti Beach's Magazine

Graffiti Beach Magazine - view online now

Featured by shegreetstheday are skull cutout tops & ombre high waisted shorts

Oh, I've been featured in an online magazine. No big deal ;) haha! I talked about Graffiti Beach before when I did my first trunk show at their shop. It was an awesome experience and a few days after the event, the owner actually contacted me about doing an in-store opportunity. Of course I said yes! What better way to get your brand out there than to actually have it in a successful shop? Amazing! So I've heard news about Graffiti Beach doing a magazine, and they finally released it! They even included some of the items I'm selling in their shop!
