Beanie Baby

My beanie,  is my new favorite accessory. I imagine it goes with everything, so I wear it with everything. The veil on the front, adds just the right amount of femininity to what is usually considered a more androgenous hat. Beanie style hats have a long associated history with all things grundge, as it's likley worn by construction workers, skate boarders etc. My first sighting of the embellished beanie, came from Vogue Italia streetstyle candids. However,  I couldn't find one locally, so mine was purchased from the overseas retailer, Missguided. Although it was a long wait, which is the norm for overseas buys, it was well worth it!

The Simple Things

Sometimes it's the small details that make a look speak louder. Paying attention to fit, style, and accesories really bring the look to life and separates your style from the rest. Execute your flair, while remaining true to yourself and it will make all the difference. Don't get caught up on other peoples opinions and just do what feels right too you, style is guaranteed to follow, if it isn't already present. Wearing a phenomenal dress perfect for all occasions doesn't hurt either !

Bow Tie

This Christmas season, most if not all of my shopping was completed online. I wasn't up for dealing with crowded stores or contending with the cold weather.  During my endless hours of trolling the internet for promo codes and adding things to my wishlist on pintrest, I stumbled upon deals that no one could pass up. My thriftiest find was a groupon, I bought from American Apparel. Although it can only be redeemed for an in-store purchase, it was worth me deviating from my online acquisitions, to make my way to their "Made in the USA' storefront. What I love about American Apparel, besides the whole ethically made stuff, is that they always have the basics, you know essentials, usually in every color, you could ever imagine. Of course i bought just that, essentials, but I couldn't leave without this awesome print skirt that was eerily reminiscent of the famous patterns of the Missoni design house. Below I decided to demonstrate how switching up your accessories can extend the life of one item.

Bedrock

My style is influenced by so many things. From day to day, there isn't one thing that I rely on to dictate, what I choose to wear. Today, my inspiration was from Betty Rubble of the Flintstones. Although I loved Wilma's white one shoulder frock, I identified most with Betty, with her black hair, infectious giggle and all around cuteness. So today my look is an homage to all the Betty's!
