merry christmas to all and to all a goodnight!

Hope those of you of celebrated Christmas had a good one. And to those of you who don't hope you had a good couple of days. Hopefully in 2012 I will be more dedicated to this here blog. Cause lord knows I wasn't in 2011. If I don't post until then, Happy New Year!

you'll be my ever after



So, I'm in love with the brand Tibi. The dresses are so chic and cool. The attention to detail is tremendous. I would have to save for months to get my own. Seriously considering one of these for prom though.

if you're looking for a good time...

...check out some of these wonderful films:


The Prestige
Directed by Christopher Nolan
Starring Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, and Michael Caine

So many twists and turns, classic Christopher Nolan flick. So good though. I would definitely recommend if you think you can keep up with the plot.

Almost Famous
Directed by Cameron Crowe
Starring Patrick Fugit, Billy Crudup, and Kate Hudson

Classic rock and roll film, pretty sure it's based on a true story though. Patrick Fugit's character is so sweet (:


 
Miracle at St.Anna
Directed by Spike Lee
Starring Derek Luke, Michael Ealy, and Laz Alonso

EXCELLENT cast. So good. It's a war movie, so it got depressing at times, but the ending is good.

It's Kind of a Funny Story
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck
Starring Keir Gilchrist, Zach Galifianakis, and Emma Roberts

This movie is really funny. And cute. It's as if 500 Days of Summer was set in a psychiatric ward and Zooey Deschanel and JGL were teenagers.

in my ears part nueve





Every Evening by 2AM Club
This song. This band. I can't even.



Happier by A Fine Frenzy
Such a good, quirky and lovely song. This album was really good.



Slow Love by Michael Alvarado
Discovered him via tumblr. His is so smooth and lovely.

Take Care by Drake ft. Rihanna
This is my favorite so far off of this album. People are already calling it a classic.


Chin Music for the Unsuspecting Hero by Foster the People
Pretty sure I love every single song they've ever recorded.

find myself against all the odds again

WASTED WORDS STYLE TIP #1

cuffed/rolled sleeves and pant legs.

I pretty much automatically do this when I get dressed. For some reason it makes me feel more cool and put together when I do this. Here are some examples:











hope you enjoyed/got inspired!

you and i may just be the best thing.









The above three videos are from thefashioncitzen channel on youtube. These girls know how to find cool and unique clothes for super cheap. And they know how to style them. They're fraternal twins, but they have very different styles. But both of them incorporate quirky and one of a kind items into their style. A lot of their clothes are thrifted, something they inspired me to do. I'm thankful that I stumbled upon their channel. Check them out !

take over the world



so these pictures look like s*** because i was too lazy to edit them. sorry guys :(

but anyway, I personally DIY bleached these shorts. I didn't really know what I was doing, but I think they turned out pretty cool. They kind of have an ombre effect, the very top is the original color, but the middle is bleach white and then fades to a light blue at the end. The shorts only cost me $3 at the thrift store. Pretty good deal if I do say so myself.

later gals.


p.s. comment if you have any giveaway ideas!

8.09.2011

k thanks (:

the edge of glory.

this is part two of my THRIFITNG series. today I'm going to give you all some tips for when you go thrifting.

1. DRESS APPROPRIATELY
     This is essential. Especially if you're going to a thrift store you've never been to and you don't know if they have fitting rooms. And most of the time even if they do, you probably are limited to three or five items and the employees probably don't want to be bothered with monitoring you in there. So make it easy for everyone and wear something like this : leggings and a long tunic-y top. I'd also recommend wear closed toe shoes, just because thrift store floors are not the cleanest.


 2. Don't get blinded by the prices.
    You may think that $2 for a top is not that bad, and it's not at all, but if you get five tops, three skirts, four pairs of shorts and two bags...you'll get up to the register and it will be like $60...I guess my point is get things that you REALLY like AND are in good condition. Don't get something you don't need just because it's cheap.

3. Try not to get things similar to something you already own.
     This is pretty much a general shopping tip. It may be 99 cents, but do you really need another v-neck?

 4. Look for quality or well known brands.
     Brands like Levi's, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, etc. are abundant at thrift stores.

5. Make sure you have a minimum of an hour to spend.
    This mostly depends of the size of the store, but an hour is usually a good amount of time to go through everything and then get in line.

6. If a place or person seems shady or dangerous, LEAVE.
     I recently had a bad experience with a creepy man (he followed me around the store..) So I left very quickly. And I will not be returning to that store. A $4 bag is NOT worth it.

7. Try to go on sale days (if you want an amazing deal)
    All stores have sale days, call your local store to find out when. Keep in mind that sale days will be CRAZY busy, so be prepared.

8. Go early and on weekday.
    Stores will be less busy then, so you can take your time.

9. Bring cash.
   Unless your going to a place like Goodwill, most thrift stores do not take credit cards, so I'd recommend bringing enough cash.

10. Go through EVERYTHING.
      You seriously never know what you could find. You might even find something cool in the housewares section. I usually don't go through the t-shirts, but I did recently, and I found my amazing Paris shirt for only 99 cents!

11. Don't be afraid of a little DIY.
      Sometimes you might love the pattern of a skirt or dress, but you hate the length. Cut it and hem it! If you can't sew, pay a pro. If you buy the dress/skirt for $3, and it costs $10 to get it hemmed, then you paid $13 for the dress/skirt, which is worth it if you really love it.

12. Clean your things immediately when you get home.
          Most things can be tossed in the washing machine. Bags, shoes and jewelry should be wiped down with alcohol or any other disinfectant.


okay so now on to more of my recent finds:




These shoes which remind me of Jeffery Campbell El Carmen heels.








This bag which was just too good to pass up. It's perfect.

i close my eyes, on the dancefloor

okay, so today is going to be part one of a two part series on.....drum roll.....THRIFTING! YAY!
and today I'm going to show examples of trendy things that you can find at thrift stores for really low prices.

 As you can see the above two dresses are similar in print and silhouette (mine was a maxi dress but i cut it.)
The left dress is selling on asos.com for $50. My dress was only $4. and it's victoria's secret brand.


These two pairs of shorts are the exact same brand. And personally I think mine look like they're in better condition. The left pair is selling on revolveclothing.com for $121. Mine were $3.

Again, two fairly similar denim shirts,the left selling for $103 on asos.com. Bought mine for $3. (those shorts were also thrifted, $2!)

Now these are not necesarily similar, but they both are small backpacks. The left is $129, mine was $4.

Okay, so next i'm just going to show you some really cool things I got.

Tan Blazer, that still had the tag on it, for $4.


Floral maxi skirt $4.


Lace top, which is actually from Lauren Conrad's line at Kohl's. $1


American Apparel sweatshirt $2. Silk skirt, that still had the tag on it, $5.

Paris tee (which I ADORE) and I got it for only 99 cents!!

so there we go! hope you all enjoyed and have been inspired to go thrifting. part two coming soon!

in my ears part ocho.


I can not even begin to explain my love for these boys. I was surprised to discover that I haven't blogged about them before. But if any of you have seen my tumblr, you're well aware of my love for them. This is my favorite song by them, even though I love pretty much every single song on their album, Torches. If you don't know Mark Foster, Mark Pontius, and Cubbie Fink by now, then you're pretty late.

p.s. I'm going to see them in OCTOBER!!!!


Another band I absolutely adore. And they're also coming in a few weeks, but they're opening for the goo goo dolls(who I have no desire to see) and the tickets are $40 :(
But anyway, I LOVE this song, and their new album. It's fantastic.



Literally just discovered these guys two days ago, and I can't get enough. I had heard of them before, but I didn't bother to listen to their songs...But then I saw the video for "Hawaiian Air" (LOVE THAT SONG) and I was intrigued. I listened to all of their songs and loved pretty much all of them. This songs has an amazing groove...And the lead singer has some pretty sick dance moves that never fail to amuse me.


I haven't invested a lot of time into listening to his music, but this is probably my favorite song by him. Mostly because Chiddy Bang is in it and I ♥ them.



I stumbled upon this song while watching a wedding video on youtube...I had heard their song "polite dance song" before and thought it was okay. But I pretty much fell in love with this song.



Houdini by Foster the People
YES I will put another FTP song on this post. They're so good I wish I could just put their whole album on this post. This song is AMAZINGGGGGGGGGG. just saying.

so anyways, I hope you all will discover your next music obsession from this post/playlist.
I have some REALLY good posts coming for you very soon. Probably in about 2 days !

(:
