On This Day: June 6

Denim. According to Webster’s dictionary, denim is defined as a “strong usually blue cotton cloth that is used especially to make jeans.” Skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, flared jeans, jean jackets, jean shorts, denim skirts, jean shirts, and so on. It would be hard to imagine the world without denim or our favorite pair of jeans (you know ladies that pair you have in your dresser that’s your go to and make you feel confident and have people staring). When I was thinking of a post to write I wanted to put away my camera and focus on some fashion history… View Post

Denim And Leopard

We all know the popular combos like oil and vinegar, peanut butter and jelly, fire and ice, milk and cookies, and so on. In the fashion world, I have discovered some combos that work so well together, including denim and leopard, hence the name of this post. The denim trend is so hot this season. Lately, head to toe denim is the way to dress, which is why I love my denim dress from Forever 21. It has easily become my summer staple because of the endless ways to style this dress. It’s a simple dress with stitching and faux… View Post

Shop Now: Summer Must Haves

Shop Now: Summer Must Haves Summer might not officially start for another month, but the heat has got us excited about all the upcoming adventures and holiday getaways.  The traveling, the beach, the parties, makes summer arguably everyone’s favorite season, and we love all the lightweight clothing that come with it.  Although all the accessories of winter and spring might be fun to pile on, let’s face it: as Travel Republic iterates, we long for the days that we can leave the layers behind. We all have our own summer essentials and favorites, but we’re curious as to what the… View Post

Boho Chic + Link Up

Boho chic is defined as a type of style being influenced by bohemian and hippie looks. Think floral prints, warm colors, fringe, round sunglasses, flowing pants and skirts, and so on. Look to celebs like Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Vanessa Hudgens, and Nicole Richie for inspiration. I am so excited to be the co-host of Michelle (Michelle’s Pa(i)ge) and Ana’s (Northwest Blonde) weekly link up post. It’s an honor to be part of this fun theme because it is so me. I love the boho style and these ladies certainly know how to dress, so make sure to check… View Post

Hot Mess

Last week was crazy; I finished my junior year of college and turned 21, all on the same day. I think I had one to many margaritas on my birthday because I am still recovering from the festivities. Not to mention that ending a school year means packing up all my stuff at school and moving back home. My room these last couple of days perfectly describes my life as messy and in shambles. But just like I can get my room all nice and tidy, I am starting to get in the groove of being home, getting back to… View Post

Pretty In Pastels

When life gets boring…add color. As much as I stick to my neutral colors, I can’t help but to incorporate more color into my looks especially when I have been bombarded with the signs of spring…warm weather, sunshine, and the abundance of flowers. After all, the right pop of color in any look makes for the perfect statement. Lately, I’ve been really getting into thrift shopping and hitting up consignment shops, instead of the usual Forever 21. Something about these types of stores really get me excited because you never know what treasures you will find. Not to mention the… View Post

Show Me Your Teeth

It’s no secret that I am a huge Lady Gaga fan.  From her unique personality, her distinct style, and her catchy music, I try to channel my inner Lady Gaga whenever I get the chance.  No, you will not find me wearing a meat dress like Lady Gaga did at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, but whatever chance I get, I love wearing more edgier pieces, especially ones that feature sparkles and of course some quirky detail.  Of course, I had to name this post after one of my favorite Lady Gaga songs, Teeth.  Recently, I can’t stop listening… View Post

Subtle Pops Of Color

Hello again.  So sorry for my absence on my blog.  For all of those who don’t know I decided to go blonde and I was to busy testing out the theory if blondes do have more fun.  Just kidding (well half kidding).  I did dye my hair blonde but I have been super busy with school work. Being a second semester junior is not easy.  But now I have more time for my blog and fun things, so I will get back to you on the theory if blondes do have more fun. I am so excited to show you… View Post

Street Style

When temperatures rise above 60 degrees, it is the perfect day to walk the streets of New York City and explore Central Park. If this warm weather pattern continues, it is safe to say that spring has sprung. Nothing was better than welcoming the warm weather than being in New York City. I had a wonderful time visiting all my favorite shops uptown and having a nice picnic lunch in the sun, sitting on one of the massive rocks in Central Park. Best part about this trip to the city was that I didn’t have to plan my outfit around… View Post

NYFW RECAP

If you were in hibernation this past week or living under a rock, let me give you a recap of one of the biggest events in the fashion industry, New York Fashion Week. This year, New York Fashion week began on Thursday, September 10 and ended the following Thursday, September 17. Throughout the week, designers featured their Spring and Summer 2016 collections. I find it fascinating that autumn hasn’t even begun and we are already focused on spring and summer 2016. I wish I was able to post a recap everyday during Fashion Week, but being a full time college… View Post

Trend Alert: Bright Colored Hair

Coloring your hair is all the rage now. Bright colored hair is not just for punk rockers or circus clowns; instead women of all ages are experimenting with new color dyes for their hair. The bright colored hair trend is especially popular among celebrities, like Kylie Jenner, Hilary Duff, Katy Perry, and Nicole Richie. Celebs are embracing beautiful shades of pink, blue, and purple. These beautiful hues are soft and fun and can make anyone look like a mythical unicorn or a mermaid. Who wouldn’t want to look like a mermaid, especially for the summer months? Color looks great with… View Post

My 20th Birthday

Last week was a crazy week to say the least. I finished my sophomore year of college, packed up my college dorm room, moved back home for the summer, and left my teenage years behind. I celebrated my 20th birthday on Sunday, May 10th. Sunday was a day of celebration because it was not only my birthday but it was also Mother’s Day. Shout out to my beautiful, amazing, and inspiring mom. I was so happy to share my special day with my mom.          I can’t believe I’m no longer a teenager. It’s so weird to be in my… View Post

The Makeup Show- NYC

On Sunday, May 3rd, I was able to take a much-needed break from studying for finals and took a trip to New York City. Most of my adventures to NYC are special, but this trip was extra special because I was attending my first ever The Makeup Show with my best friend, Christina, by my side. Coffee in hand, we both boarded the train at 9 A.M. and arrived in the city an hour later. The entire train ride, it felt like I had ants in my pants, or in my case my romper. I was so excited not knowing what… View Post
