OOTD: Hello Helgas

Back in January, my friend Kevin spoiled me with a pair of Deandri Helga's for my nineteenth birthday. Deandri is a brand based in Los Angeles, California that design and sell their own clothing, shoes, and accessories (harnesses to be specific). I've been lusting over their handmade shoes for years now so I was ecstatic to finally get my hands on a pair of my own. (THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS) Unfortunately, I've been pretty comfortable this past year when it came to fashion and dressing up so the Helgas have been collecting dust under my bed for the past eight months. -- I'm over staying stagnant and I'm currently in the process of becoming inspired and rediscovering my style because it's definitely more grown since high school. 

Gloomy days in the northwest call for all (or mostly all) black so I slipped into a mock neck leotard and paired my high waisted black skinnies over it. Added the "FUCK OFF" heart necklace my boyfriend gave me to keep the top from looking to empty. There wasn't much going on with my outfit in the first place so I decided to finally break in my statement shoes (which surprisingly aren't as uncomfortable as they look). I'm so in love with these Helgas and I grow an extra six inches with them on, so it's like a whole new world.

VLOG: So Childish! (8.24.14)

WATCH IN HD!! -- Last weekend Baesquad and Donald Glover took over Hawthorne. Nicki Minaj has been able to brainwash kbae and ebae with her new song "Anaconda." Also, Erin secretly copies Kevin in order to steal his powers and reign as the next Supreme.
Probably my prettiest vlog yet. Minus the screen cap... Not cute.

After another 6+ months, I have FINALLY filmed and posted a new YouTube video. Here's my apology (again) and explanation. I really loved making videos until it started feeling like a job and the pressure to constantly come up with good content made the whole thing less enjoyable for me. So I'm not going to make any promises when it comes to consistency. I'll post when I post.

I'm not sure what exactly I plan on doing with my channel besides vlogging. I like documenting my life whether it be through writing, blogging, pictures (like instagram), etc. I want to be able to look at old videos too.

Also -- I'm easily embarrassed. Watching some of my old videos was painful so I took most of them down for that reason. (+ I wanted a fresh start, + a lot of it wasn't very good content. ) I'm not sure if I'm embarrassed because I've grown and I don't feel like that same person anymore or simply because I feel like my whole existence is an apology/joke. (lol kidding...)? Whatever it is, I want to get over it sooo this is what I'm doing.

OOTD: Post July 4th Crybaby (7.8.14)


So serious. Lol. I sit on chairs weird.

The other day I went shopping and caught up with Kevin (@killahouston) over iced coffees (so typical). Oregon's been hitting the 90's lately. To combat the heat, I wore these blue denim high waisted mom shorts and paired it with a cropped muscle tee that simply skims over the upper region of your body. The graphic muscle tee features young Johnny Depp with a tear streaming down his cheek from the 1990's musical rom com "Crybaby." Alone, this outfit seemed too plain so I added a bold lip and a braided plaid bow which played into the color scheme of the whole fit. The bow unfortunately kept slipping off my head throughout the day so I eventually took it off. And I found out heat = sweat = bold lips w/o lipliner = bleeding lipstick. Bleeding lips = too high maintenance.  (Lipliner is so important!!!) I was going to see my boyfriend later on in the day anyway so I decided I might as well just take it off.

Although this looks very festival or July 4th appropriate, I didn't wear this over July 4th weekend. (I wasn't very festive at all actually.) I spent the weekend with my love. Celebrated the fourth with his family. (Independence day also marked our 6 months!)

Thanks bb!

Hello hellllo. So it's been seven months since the last time I've posted and I apologize for the sudden and very extended hiatus. Life kind of just took over and I lost interest in lookbook, blogging, and the whole OOTD thing in general. And although I have been wanting to get back into this again for awhile, my laziness convinced me to keep putting it off till later. Typical.

Lame excuses aside, I'm back now and I plan on posting at least once every two weeks until I've gotten the hang of things again. (It's not too ambitious.. reasonable, right?) Deleting everything on this blog and coming back with a clean slate was something I've been debating but I suppose there's no point in abandoning this baby only to recreate it.

Yesterday was a 3/4th BAESQUAD day -- Spent some quality time strolling around downtown Portland with my not-so-little little sister Erin and brudder Kevin (killahouston). Unfortunately it was another one of those days where Oregon forgot what summer weather should look like so I threw on something pretty basic. Nothing too special.

My mom had this thin worn down Lacoste v-neck that was only collecting dust in her closet. The neckline was stretched out so instead of resembling a v-neck, it looked a lot more like a deep scoop neck. Of course instead of throwing it out, I gave it a home in my closet and wear it whenever I want something over the shoulder. Paired the top with a lace bralette so I'd be covered if anything was to peek out.. Lol. Wanted to keep it effortless so I wore some boyfriend jeans and some ankle boots to keep it from looking too sloppy. Accessorized with two fistfuls of rings. (Silver over gold any day!) Aaaand that's pretty much it. 

As you can see, I put a lot of effort into looking somewhat homeless.
