Bubblegum

Spent my Sunday on a relentless quest for the most massive travel tote ever and the perfect stonewashed Levi's jacket. I found the Levi's jacket, but no luck with the carry-on luggage... well I found an old Louis Vuitton duffle bag, but I'm still not quite sure how I feel about logo-splattered luggage. 
Wore a vintage silk blouse, an old Topshop bustle skirt, Karen Walker sunglasses, Aldo shoes (I've worn these to death), and Karla's Closet for Coach clutch...
Sorry for not brushing my hair! I think I'm chopping it off next week. 

Happy Manic Monday!

Naomi said...

The blouse is amazing!

Your blog is absolutely my favorite one! You really help me to develop my sense of style. You also gave me the guts to get a short haircut, because you look so good with short hair, and I'm so glad I finally did it! When I'm done with high school, I would really like to study fashion.

Thank you for being such an inspiration!

That mustard blouse looks really pretty with your skin tone and hair color.You look really cute with your "messy" hair, you shouldn't trim it.

Sarah said...

i love your hair as is! and if you didnt brush it and it still looks that awesome then I'm jealous! I'm glad you're promoting your own design. It means you back it and are proud. Not doing so would be silly! It's an awesome bag! :D As always, I love your blog. :)

You are honestly one of the most beautiful people I have ever seen! Messy hair or not! The outfit is beyond chic and that bag, is flawless.

I agree on the logo infested luggage, or logo covered anything! I'm not a fan of being a walking billboard.

beautiful shirt, looks great in the sunshine. I have those shoes too and find they are hard to walk in, not because of the heel height (I'm a pro) but because they seem to sort of push me forward. I call them rocking-horse shoes, they just seem to rock forward....maybe its just me?!
