Say You'll Be There

Finally a new outfit post!! It's been a few months since I posted an official one but here it is. Lately, I have really been inspired by European street fashion especially from London. Even though Missguided has been around for a long time, I'm just now falling in love with their brand. I have avoided shopping there for so long solely because I thought everything they had in stock would be too overpriced but I was pleasantly surprised. Most of their items were reasonably priced and very fashion forward. I picked out this long sleeve shirt dress from the store online. The material is very light and smooth and I look forward to wearing this as a dress and pairing it with a strappy pair of heels. I'm not use to wearing pieces like this so if anyone has any styling advice on other ways I could wear this shirt dress let me know :)

Fancy Friday

Hey everyone, I'm sorry that I've been so absentee on this blog lately. This month has been a whirlwind. Due to my classes,my internship, and other personal commitments, I haven't had much time to blog :/ Also, the weather in Chicago has been complete chaos so I haven't had the patience to go out and shoot outfit posts in the cold. Hopefully, I can start posting more regularly and consistently soon. In the mean time, enjoy Iggy Azalea's latest video masterpiece :)

What I'm Listening To

With all of the things going on in my life, I definitely use music as an outlet to escape reality for awhile. Listening to music helps me relax,especially on those long train rides to and from school. Below I put some of my favorite songs that have constantly been on repeat. I hope you guys enjoy them and if you have any song suggestions feel free to let me know :)

A Night At The Circus

On February 7th, Circus Magazine collaborated with the Hispanic Journalists of Columbia and threw its first event. The event included live performances and a fashion show. Local Chicago acts like DJ 13laculaAshton Martin, Afro Fuzz, and the 151s performed all throughout the night. The fashion show was at the dead center of the event and I was so happy that I had the opportunity to help style and organize the show.

The event had a great turnout and mostly everything turned out exactly as planned. The decorations, music,models,hair stylists and the entire team at Circus were amazing. I can only hope that the next event we throw will be just as good. P.S. the promotional photo shoot for the event was shot by Lyndon French was perfection and you should definitely check that out.

Don't Worry Be Happy

Photo via untrustyou.tumblr.com

This morning I woke up with a million and one things on my mind. I was just laying in bed and thinking about all of the things I would have to do within the next week. Basically, I was stressing myself out and worrying about whether or not I couldn't handle all of it. Then I stopped and realized that worrying about things I can't control is only going to make things worse. I definitely had to play some happy music to help calm my nerves. Don't Worry Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin made me feel so much better. Every time I hear this song, it makes me think of my early childhood and how simple things used to be.

 Happy Sunday :)
