I wish I lived in the 1970's

Friday is finally here! Thank goodness, because I have really been
needing a break. Although let's be honest... I still have to study for
biology all weekend! Oh well, I really cannot complain because I am
going to be completely finished in two weeks. Oh boy, oh boy!

Anyways, onto the outfit. I received this amazing jumpsuit from
Anarchy Street and I am completely obsessed! The long vertical stripes
make me feel super tall. And who doesn't like feeling super tall? I also
received this lovely bracelet/ring as well and I have been rocking it
with simple outfits to add a little flair lately. As for the bag, I was
eyeing it at the vintage boutique I work at for weeks! Just a bit
inspired by Becky-May's beautiful woven baskets as bags, I decided to
put my little twist on the trend.

Well I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

best boots

I'm a sucker for an awesome boot with a mid-heel (comfy for walking AND gives you height) like these gems by Alexander Wang (top), 3.1 Phillip Lim (middle) and Jean-Michel Cazabat.

kanye in céline

know you've all prob seen this image of Kanye performing at Coachella wearing the beautiful silk blouse inspired by vintage foulard prints from Céline's spring 2011 collection. I love that he pairs it with faded denim and multiple gold chains. But how he wears it is irrelevant. What is relevant is the fact that its a womens' blouse and he's still rocking the shit out of it. Gender neutrality is what's now in fashion. Read more on what dubs the new new androgyny here.

$25 Ruche Giveaway!

Happy mid-week, yay! Things have been so busy lately. I feel
like I am always saying that, but it is oh so true. However, May awaits
and I could not be more excited. Lots of new things to come in May.
Once exams and presentations are over things will slow down for a
bit, and I absolutely cannot wait. Anyways, I have been waiting to
show you all this dress for literally months! I purchased it in the winter
months, waiting for a sunny day to bring it out. The print is so vibrant
and fun. It just screams 'hello summer'!

In other exciting news, Ruche is hosting a $25 giveaway on my blog!

Bit O' Inspiration

1970's YSL

Needing to look at something pretty on this drab and dull Wednesday.


Oh goodness. Is it Monday again? I am past the stage of denial. Really, I
just have so much work to do, making it somewhat difficult lately to
keep up with blogging! So I apologize for the little absence. Once this week
is over, things will get back to normal. These photos were taken last week
before what is apparently a new found 'monsoon season'. I made this
DIY headband on a whim, using a bow and a piece of fabric. Rain and
thunderstorm nonstop has rendered me lazy and hermit-like. Can't
wait for some sunshine!

Anyways, I am making this post to present to you a lovely
giveaway from CHICWISH! They are offering one $75 gift card,
and if the giveaway reaches 400 comments, they will give away TWO! I am
so excited about this giveaway, because they have the most lovely vintage
inspired pieces. Honestly, I can't see one not feeling pretty in any one
of their pieces!

So, the rules:

1.) You must like Chicwish on Facebook, AND go to the Chicwish page
and tell me your favorite item/how you would style it.
2.) Follow me through Bloglovin'
3.) Leave your e-mail or a way to contact you.

Good Luck!!
Can't wait to hear how you all would style an item :)
