Thrift.

IMG_20170818_185925_632

This past month I have been thrifting every week and I have found some amazing clothing pieces. I love finding clothes when they have the original tag intact or when I find something still in good condition without the original tags. But overall I have been getting lucky. I have a lot of great tips that I have learned when it comes to thrifting that I know wi be helpful to you all who want to get into thrifting.

I did do a thrift haul on my sisters youtube channel, so all of you can see what I picked up over the past month. So go ahead and check it out and subscribe if you want to see more videos on my sisters channel. Thriftmeout is a fun channel about my sister showing her thrift finds and styling magazine & celebrity outfits off thrifting pieces, if that makes any sense to you all.

Get into my closet. N1.

Spring is coming and I am already thinking about my Spring wardrobe. Today I want to share some of my picks that I’m currently wanting for my closet so I can wear. I will be starting my Spring cleaning soon, (my closet) and donating clothes I wont be transitioning from winter to spring. I want to make room for some new clothes. While looking for new pieces for spring, I want to pick out clothing I can wear over and over again but in different ways of course. I want classic pieces with a hint of trendy. I hope you all enjoy this new series on the blog called, Get into my closet which will be about me showing you what I want in my closet so I can wear on a daily basis. Hope you all had a great weekend.

1. Dress with frilled sleeves. – I have a denim dress with lace-up details on the chest area, with short sleeves in a dark wash color but this one from Zara is so pretty. I love the frilled sleeves and I think it will look cute with my cropped leather jacket and the frills peeking out of the sleeves for a date night look with some cute strappy heels.

2. Denim crop top. This is a perfect crop top. So wearable for the day with some black or grey joggers and so cropped ankle jeans for the night time.

3. Long denim jacket. When I saw this long denim jacket, I immediately pictured myself wearing it with my floral mock neck bodysuit, medium washed, distress denim skirt and some sock ankle booties.

1. Cropped shirt. The sleeves on this top gives the blouse a girly, romantic feel. I can already see myself wearing it with some white skinny jeans and nude espadrille wedges.

2. Gingham check top. I remember Gingham was a huge trend a few years ago and I never purchased anything in that print because no top caught my attention. I love the silhouette of this top, it has a fun and quirky look.

3. Colorful metallic top. I do not own anything with jewel tone stripes especially something with a metallic finish. I love the colors, I love how it’s stripes, (classic print) this top will look adorable paired with a high-waisted leather skirt.

1. High-rise mini flare jeans. I feel like every girl has at least one pair of white denim but not ones with frayed hems. I love how these are flared, frayed and cropped. These will look cute with just about anything and are a perfect staple for spring.

2. Fringed hem skirt. I can already tell this skirt will be perfect for a nice beach day with some slide strappy sandals and some pretty heels at night time. The slit gives this skirt a nice and sexy touch.

3. High-rise wax trousers. I have been wanting a pair of wax trousers but I have been having a hard time finding a pair that fits me good. Hopefully if I decide to get these they will fit perfect.

1. Crossover suede sandals. The crossover strap and color both are a wearable and trendy must have heel for my wardrobe because they will go with everything.

2. Stretch leather ankle boot. This color is so pretty. If paired right, yellow can go with anything you wear.

3. Crossover leather wedges. This type of shoe I would be scare to wear because they look a little granny-ish but the leather detail and wedge can give a outfit a nice casual edge.

*Not sponsored. I just decided to pick Zara because they always have the cutest things.

D.I.Y. Uneven Hem

photogrid_1485477750436

As most of you know from my two previous post, here. I’ve been wanting to try out this trend for a while because it just looks different, fun and cool. The uneven hem makes the Jeans look more better and gives it a nice touch. While on pinterest I saw a lot of cute pictures or women styling this trend. Just recently I saw these uneven hem jeans at H&M and I wanted to buy them but I thought I would cut up some of my old jeans and test it out first. The jeans I was going to use, I ended up cutting them into shorts, so I went with a pair I bought two years ago at my job. I don’t like how they look from the bottom so I thought I would make them look a little better and trendy-er. Also previous to falling in love with this trend, I watched a video from Ashley Brooke and followed her steps. I hope you all enjoy this post.

Have any of you tried this trend? If you are going to DIY some uneven hem jeans, please be careful because I ended up cutting myself. I couldn’t find my seam ripper and ended up using my X-acto knife.

The ending results turned out good but I will be distressing them more and add some shredded details to the bottom. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Hopefully I get to find some uneven hem jeans in my size soon because I am obsessed and I think they will be perfect for Spring.

1. Off the shoulder peasant top.  – I wore this top already with some blue jeans and black booties. If you follow me on Instagram then you would know that I posted a outfit of the day on Saturday. The top is super comfortable and it stayed on very well throughout the day while running errands.

2. Faux suede choker set. – This choker set looked so cute paired with the off the shoulder peasant top. I love how the chokers are individuals so I can wear them separate if I wanted to. Towards the end of the night I ended up wearing the black choker by itself to a festival.

3. Round sungless – I couldn’t find the link to these exact ones for some odd reason but I was able to find these round ones. I wanted to return the ones I bought because I don’t like them as much anymore but I threw the tags away. Or maybe I will learn to love them. The ones I purchased have black lenses and gold hardware.

4. Floral mock neck bodysuit – I immediately became obsessed with this bodysuit when I watched my favorite youtuber Ashley Brooke How to style prints for winter lookbook. Ashley actually hauled that bodysuit first and you can watch the video here. I love how she dresses. Anyone else watch her videos? I am very sorry the top is no longer available. I ordered mine in December and I got lucky enough to find one for my sister at the actual store and it was the last one there.

5. Faux leather Chelsea boots. –  I’ve been on the hunt for some Chelsea boots and when I saw these I had to order them because they are affordable and has a nice little heel. I also wore these with my off the shoulder peasant top and they are the most comfortable booties ever.

6. V-neck cami tank. – I needed just a basic tabk top to lounge around the house and wear to a two day event festival I went to this weekend. It was super comfortable. I love wearing these basic tanks almost everyday with some layers or with none.

7. Distressed denim cut-offs. – These shorts were a last minute purchase because I needed shorts for my festival as well as one more top I will mention. The shorts have the perfect amount of destress and I love how it is at the bottom of the thigh area.

8. Plaid cotton shirt. – This top kept me warm after the festival I went to was over. I had it wrapped around my waist the whole night because I was hot but once I got outside it was freezing.

 

I am very sorry I didn’t show a better picture of the striped crop top with the knot. I did not find a link for it and forgot to take a picture of it by itself when I was focused on the cover photo.

Thrifted denim. A new project.

I recently went to the thrift store and I have been on the hunt for some Levi Strauss denim in two specific colors, medium wash and light wash. Sadly on this visit I only found a medium wash in my size, I did find a light wash pair but it wasn’t in my size and I was super bummed. My plan was to make them into high-waisted jeans for spring and summer. But now that I’ve been seeing vintage Levi’s with uneven and fringed hem lines, I kinda want to cut up my jeans hem and try these two trends I’ve been obsessed with. The denim I thrifted fit good and the jeans are nice and stretchy which I love. I am still confused as to what to do with my newly thrifted gem but I’m sure I will come up with something. I can do so much with them. What do you think I should do with my pair? Should I try the uneven trend, fringed hem or cut them into shorts? What are your lovely thoughts?

Uneven Hem Jean. 

I love the look of the uneven hem. This is a very popular trend right now and I’ve been seeing a lot of bloggers styling this trend in such unique ways. I love this trend with some black booties. This trend gives the jeans a nice little detail that isn’t too boring and plain.

Fringed Hem Jeans.

The look of fringe hem jeans is so cute, it will make a plain outfit look so much cooler and fun. This look will add some fun flare to your outfit, it can make pumps, sandals and booties look amazing paired together.

I’m really loving the white-t under a slip dress or a tiny tank top, (so Clueless) this trend is making a come back and everyone seems to love it including retailers because I’ve been seeing this layered trend almost in every store. I’ve had this black dress for two years now and I got it at my old job, G by Guess so its not available anymore and I added my Victoria’s secret white-T underneath. I really want to buy this Tee and lace Cami from Express it is super cute and you can wear it with any bottoms you want. You can really just wear any black tank dress or top and where a plain white-T you have in your closet already. Doesn’t have to be a black tank, it can be any color you want. But I really want to go back to Express and buy that top.

Be confident and love yourself. ❤
