Plaid errthang. British plaid punk. Schoolgirl punk. 
This dress fits terribly.
I'm obsessed with these clip on earrings. 
That is all.

This dress was definitely a hit on the Greek row last night... I got told the dress reminded someone of a Pokemon character and then we discussed Exeggutor and Pikachu for a bit. At a frat party. I kid you not. 

I always end up wearing something that sparks up conversation when I go out.

Oh and my trusty JC boots: they will forever be my going out shoes. I don't understand why girls wear heels or super white converse when going to fraternity parties. They're destined to get wrecked.

Explicit

Channeling my inner Alexander Wang with this t-shirt and shabby chic look. My mane is so OOC; I'm going to go get it tamed by my girl Ashley at Chop Chop Salon later today. I'm kind of feelin' the tousled thing goin' on with this outfit though.

And my LF boyfriend jeans have made another appearance... definitely pick up a pair of bf jeans for the fall. I think this is one of the few outfits I've blogged in a while where I'm not wearing something high waisted.  

Side note: I'm so glad I bought these booties. I get so much use out of them and so many compliments.

Summer Nostalgia

Okay can we just talk about how fabulous Selena Gomez looked at the Versace S/S '14 show in Milan... Basically that look embodies what I want my uniform to consist of this fall. 
Girly silhouettes, dark colors and bold lips.

I've been briefly following NYFW, LFW and MFW through Instagram. My course load does not allow for internet fashion obsession. Nor does it allow for television watchin' (I've been sticking solely to glimpses of CNN whilst making breakfast...who am I?) I was completely unaware of the production of The Originals. Is this a spinoff television series? Is The Vampire Diaries going to air simultaneously? I mean, I'm not sure why I'm curious considering I dropped watching TVD a while ago. But in my opinion they are taking this whole series way too far...I think it's time to wrap it up. 

In other news, I attended a Mount Kimbie show the other day at the EchoPlex. Interesting music, intriguing slideshows and a lot of people watching... I'm definitely not a Silverlake/Echo Park person. Nor am I into trance music (though "Made To Stray" is a pretty good song). It was a cool experience nonetheless. It made me nostalgic for Lollapalooza. I'm in need of a therapeutic music festival ASAP.

Boy London

I'm feelin' very Scary Spice in this look. I find these pants extremely difficult to style, so I went for a shabby chic look and wore 'em to my 8 am class this morning. I'm obsessed with the Boy London print and harem pants are back this fall.

Look numéro dos. I changed in between classes because it's about 86 degrees in LA today. Get with the whole fall thing, Los Angeles! (And when it's cold I'll complain then too...)
This look is much more girly and definitely school friendly. 
Oh and yes, I purchased TOMS...ugh. They're horrible for your feet and not cute at all but so easy to deal with. Sue me! 
Which look do you like better?

(my awesome date)

I had invite this past Friday which is basically like formal. We (a group of 30 people...) started the night off with dinner and then we headed to the venue, Sadie Kitchen and Lounge in Hollywood. 

I wore this holographic Parker dress I picked up back in June from Bloomingdale's. 

I got my hair done for the event which is rare for me because I know how to deal with my hair better than anyone. But Alexis at Studio K in Pasadena did a great job. I had to adjust a few pieces to make it messier when I got home but other than that, I was pretty satisfied. I definitely recommend the salon.

I worked the door at the 7FAM event tonight in Century City. Basically, my internship rocks. S/O to Lauren Stillman!
I got to see Ashley Madekwe of ashley-ringmybell.blogspot.com and Revenge, for the second time. (I had first met her at esNAIL on Melrose.) As always, she was a sweetheart and looked gorgeous.
I also got to meet one of my fashion blogger idols: Krystal Simpson of whatisrealityanyway.com. She is one of those bloggers that I've been following since I started blogging in 2009. She was extremely down to earth and took a bunch of pictures with me. 
It was a super fun night and I'm so excited to have gotten this opportunity. 
P.S. shout out to 7FAM for the jeans!

School is kicking my ass--in a good way. I'm in 16 units, I have an internship, I'm writing for the Daily Trojan and I'm in a sorority. "No rest for the wicked" kinda thing goin' on...ish. 3 out of 4 of my classes revolve around writing and thinking about life in a philosophical manner so I'm pretty much brain dead by this time during the week and all I want to do is watch mindless television shows and eat multigrain waffles. 

Side note: I look very unkempt and that wasn't done on purpose. #shabbychic #naturally #lol #ineedanap

This ensemble is my way of protesting the arrival of fall. This cute, girly school outfit screams spring.
I've been loving this off the shoulder crop top action that has been going on lately. And of course, circle skirts are a wardrobe staple as of late.
