Tweed Jacket

I'm pretty sure this is another great find from one of my trips to Chicago, and I promise I don't go to Chicago as much as it may seem like I do! I'm always saying I found this in Chicago, I found that in Chicago. Chicago just has some great stores, ALRIGHT?! 
Extremely shitty weather we are having this week, I swear I'm about to just drive to a beach, any beach I DON'T CARE WHERE! 

jacket, F21 and the bow necklace, a gift from a great friend!

I hope everyone is having better days than I am because I have been stuck inside for the better part of the week! But for now...

Easter / Weekend

 Baby chick named Bella Donna.
This Easter was so much fun! I went out with my friend and not only did I get to play with baby chicks but I saw some horses as well! She took these pictures with her camera phone.

I really thought the horse was going to bite my braid if I got my hair to close! I saw that happen on TV once and ever since that I've been really cautious around horses, though I do love them!

This horses name is Mocha. He was so sweet and is very photogenic I think!

I hope everyone had a fun Easter!

Saturday Tunes and Relaxation

Im loving the Black Keys, Love Like Fire, Adele, and Jessi J today! What a weird mix, huh? Mostly just relaxing music minus Jessi J, she's somewhat a badass it seems and I'm loving her song "Do It Like a Dude"! Anyways is great to have the whole weekend (not to mention Monday) off! Perfect time to catch up on some reading. 

I cannot wait until Easter tomorrow! Going over to a friends to play with these new baby chicks she just got! How cute and she couldn't have gotten them at a more perfect time! I'll be sure to take pictures!

Target thigh high socks, F21 Shirt, Cardigan borrowed from sister.

Happy Easter!

Christian Dior Spring 2011

I am loving the Spring 2011 Dior shoes! The colors are beautiful and the rope straps are perfect for the warm weather coming up! My favorites are the pink and purple pair on the bottom left and the one with the red ribbon on the top middle. The colors on that one are CRAZY, I would love to get my hands on that pair for sure.

New Designs, the month of April has been good to me! Plus, weekend tunes.

All designs I have come up with this month! Its been a pretty good month (not to mention year!) so far!

Now, onto my weekend music. This weekend was pretty peaceful, mostly just hanging out with friends at different places, the park, out to lunch, their houses, etc.

Heart sunglasses, Ebay

Grizzly Bear - Slow Life

Grizzly Bear - La Duchess Anne

Grizzly Bear - Knife

Angus and Julia Stone - Big Jet Plane

Love Like Fire - My Left Eye
I really love this song! Heard it on the US version of Skins and I'm so very thankful for the free download gave out! I'm pretty sure this song takes home the gold for "best song of this weekend" or month, its just that good to me!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I can't wait for the next couple of days to get here, a lot in store for me!

Some Favorites - Jewelry

Just a couple shots of some of my favorite jewelry pieces of the moment!

 Chanel leaf necklace.
Found on eBay, obviously thats where I get most of my bargains besides thrift stores or this website my mom joined where you can get free items people don't want anymore, it was created to lessen the garbage in landfills! What a smart idea.

 Turquoise and silver necklace thats been in the family for a while, my mom passed it down to me and I believe it belonged to my grandmother before my mom.

Nicole Richies 'House of Harlow' necklace.
I love the aqua color design on this necklace! 

Juicy Couture 'juicy' chain bracelet, Fashion charm bracelet, Ribbon & Chain bracelet, Juicy Couture gold charm bracelet.
I have been obsessed over charm bracelets these past two months, I've started to aquire quite a few, the Juicy Couture charm bracelet I've had since about 2 or 3 Christmases ago, and the Ribbon & Chain bracelet is pretty old as well, got it on a trip to Chicago probably almost 2 years ago! The other two are brand new, and we're total bargains!

Los 100 Clasicos de la Moda

So I found this book at the library last week at its all in french, but I spoke with my mother and showed her the book and she could somewhat understand it, she said Spanish and French are a little similar and she speaks fluent Spanish so here we go! This book has some awesome illustrations in it by Ruben Toledo and from what I could decipher, this book is all about classic and timeless pieces! So obviously I couldn't resist taking it home to check it out!

The Chanel No. 5 perfume is a classic and known all around the world!
There's a quote in the book from Coco Chanel in french..."Una mujer que no usa perfume no tiene futuro."

 Rick Owen leather jacket. A classic and I don't just mean any Rick Owen leather jacket, I think all black leather jackets are timeless.

The Burberry trench coat! The trench coat has been around for a while! You can see Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn, and Catherine Deneuve wearing them in their movies such as Casablanca, Breakfast at Tiffanys, and The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.  

      Last, but never least, shoes! Classic brands like Manolo Blahnik and timeless styles like the Mary Jane.

Very good book if I do say so myself and have a great Monday everybody!

Spiked, please and with a drop of sound.

 Christian Louboutin heels, Forever 21 Tutu 
I love these Louboutins I found on ebay, they were a 19th birthday gift from my mom! I usually lean more towards different brands that aren't as popular (to me, at least) not like Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, and Jimmy Choo. Their shoes are amazing don't get me wrong! It just they are very well known so a lot of people have the same shoe and they are also very easy to knockoff. But I love a good spiky heel and have been looking around for some nice ones forever so these are here to stay!

This weekend was beyond perfect! I got to see all my friends who visited from college and had a little get together at my house Friday and Saturday. Now I'm working on redecorating my room today! Oh, and heres what I was listening to this weekend, basically a lot of songs by Animal Collective, Black Moth Super Rainbow, and one by Lionshare showed below.

Animal Collective - Peacebone

Black Moth Super Rainbow - Sun Lips

Lionshare - Trip to Feza

I hope you all had a fun weekend! I'm still enjoying this nice weather we're having.

Perfect Weather

Wow! Guess what? It's really hot outside today! I'm very excited, this couldn't be more perfect of a weekend! I had some friends over last night and today I spent the day cleaning the house, drawing a couple of new designs (I came up with a bunch of new ideas last night!) and photographing some awesome shoes that arrived in the mail last week, a late birthday gift but I'm not complaining!

I've been starting to put a lot of different braids in my hair, YouTube and fashion magazines are really a great source for new hairstyle ideas and I just love putting braids in my hair as the weather gets warmer. I recently purchased a clip-on braided bun! Only $5 and works and looks great especially with bangs and some big earrings. 

Perfect to wear on a hot day!

Wearing this awesome purple chiffon dress that's from Forever 21, but I found it at a thrift store! great find and I'm pretty sure I did another post with this dress before. I've been wearing this long dress with a black camisole all day but every once and a while I get super hot and throw on a tutu, also from Forever 21! Why I have so many clothes from that place I'll never know! They seem to be very popular not just at the mall but at thrift stores around where I live.

Hope everyones enjoying this perfect Saturday!

Sculpture Park (part 2)

 Let me just say that the weather here has been beautiful the past couple of days! I have a lot of good news to share aswell! More later on that.

Good thing I wore these combat boots I picked up in Chicago! We had to do some hiking to get to certain sculptures! 

Paige and I were watching some lady sing opera tunes to her daughter. It was hilarious! She was even dancing around and I'm sorry to say I didn't get a picture of it!

Sculpture Park (part 1)

Last week I visited this awesome park that I used to frequent a lot in the summer of 2010. I'm really glad that the one day we have nice weather and I'm off work, I got to go here!

 My friend Paige and I, getting crushed by this humongous eye ball.

 The sculptures around this park were crazy! I'm hoping to go back soon and visit the other half that I didn't get to go to, but was looking the most forward to of course!
more later! I have much to share!
