A sunny spring day: OOTD

I finally thrifted the perfect blue jeans! I am so excited to show you guys this pair. They fit nice and snug on my waist so I don't have to pull them up too often, and they're very loose and straight in the legs. I've been looking for something like this for months. I paired…

Almost ripped my pants today (OOTD)

Today I put on my favorite pants to wear to work: these pinkish-beige pants that practically feel like pajamas. They have a zipper in the back and a little hook. And guess what happened during my bathroom break... Yep, the zipper would not zip up! I spent a good five minutes in that stall trying…

OOTD: Esmeralda Edition

My brother and sister called me Esmeralda today (as in the Hunchback of Notre Dame lady). They almost always have snarky comments about my outfits. Usually they're something along the lines of "Hey, grandma's home!", or "You look like [insert cartoon character/BTS member here]." I find it funny most of the time... Emphasis on most.…

On Caring Less

I often get comments from well-meaning family members about how the way I dressed and styled my hair in the past looked more flattering than the way I do now. It irks me to no end when they say that, because I am in a much better place now when it comes to my self-esteem…

89 Degrees

My computer overheated. The amount of oil on my face could cook a KFC family dinner. MY FEET ARE SWEATING, PEOPLE. It's 89 degrees outside today, and I almost didn't go out to take these photos. I have a bit of an issue. I only have one pair of shorts that actually fit me, and…

Clip on Earrings and “Painted” Shorts

Yesterday was a pretty good day. I got a lot of work done in my printmaking class, and I managed to develop some film in the photography studio. Plus I had an awesome burrito from a place called Cantina Grill (free of cost, thanks to my friend Shannon!) This was the outfit that I wore: a…

My Favorite Etsy Shops

I love Etsy. I LOVE Etsy. I go on Etsy every day. (P.S. That was an Oprah reference. #Bye) I usually don't mind browsing through pages and pages to find the perfect item. But, when I'm feeling lazy I can definitely count on the following shops to find great items: Myron Street Vintage I don't know…

OOTD- 3/10/16

My camera is officially useless! I've had the same Nikon point and shoot for about three years now, and it's been giving me issues for months. It randomly overexposes shots, and it doesn't really focus that well most of the time, hence the grainy photos below.  Let's pretend I was going for that aesthetic ;)…

February Thrift Haul

I've decided to go without shopping at fast fashion stores like Forever 21, H&M, and Zara. It's difficult for me to support clothing companies that aren't transparent and ethical in their practices. Instead, I plan to purchase clothing secondhand online or from thrift shops. The only exceptions I'll make are for shoes and maybe some accessories, because those are the…
