Winter Projects

Hellooo everyonee. I'm really glad I'm on break again! Today I'm wearing two of my very own DIY pieces. The first one is this awesome necklace I made last week and the second is this purse that I studded last year. I actually also changed the straps on the purse for these chains that I bought at Michaels and i braided it with some leather i had leftover from the original straps. I always get so much satisfaction from doing DIY projects. It really is a great way to renew old clothes and keep entertained for a couple hours (or a couple days in the case of the purse) Worn with an Alexander Wang-esque gray tank top, leather pencil skirt and leather ankle foldover boots.

Thanks for reading! :)


DIY: Statement Necklace

Now that school is out, there's definitely more time for DIYs and projects I've been thinking about all semester. I was cleaning up my closet when I found bags of buttons and broken bracelets. I knew I was saving them for a reason!. So After an spending an hour each with some cement in my hand and "Funny Face" on tv, I turned all these little bits and pieces into these amazing necklaces. I'm really pleased with how they turned out (the black one is not finished yet) especially since I didnt spend anything on them :) hehehehe

Hi everyone! I’ve been a busy bee!. The necklace sales have really picked up and i’ve been making them non-stop :). So here’s a post about a bunch of rings that I had already and that I bought when I was in Peru.




Dream come true!

yes! yes! yes! yes!!!!!! The Sam Edelman "Zoe" boot aka the look-alike balenciaga harness boots are coming!!!!!!!!!!!! It's 2 am and I am sooo excited! cannot wait to have these babies on my feet!! I just got an e-mail saying they will be available begining of august. SOOOOO excited! I'm wondering how much they will be? Also I went missing for 10 days in peru :) so that explains the lack of posts. I will update you guys more pretty soon. Too excited to type fast enough lololol.
I just realized august starts pretty soon! where's summer gone to?? I can't believe its almost over.

Photobooth fun

This is what I do at work lol. Photobooth with my coworkers Bridget and Jonny. lololol

Voting Poster

This is a voting poster I made for my graphic design class last year. If you can't recognize the person in the poster, it's Stefan Sagmeister. The famous graphic designer known for his typography work as well as intricate designs. The poster is really self-explanatory. Simple and to the point. I think it's an effective solution in my opinion. So let me know what you think. I have outfit posts coming up really soon ;).

Graffiti on Canvas


First off, I want to apologize for the lack of posts. I have been feeling a little sick and have been super busy so I haven’t had the time to take pictures of even turn on my computer lol. So this is the second post of my paintings series. This particular one took me about 4 hours and its acrylic on canvas. So lots of things going on:

*Getting ready for my trip to Peru in 2 weeks

Went to a vintage boutique and found a truly great dress which i will snap soon. Just to give you an idea of what it looks like just think sequins, mesh and fringe :). I need to get it altered because its a bit long on me so once that’s done I will start wearing it.

Florida is hot as usual with lots of rain lately so my outfits have consisted of lots of body con skirts, acid washed shirts, shorts, and lots and lots of jewelry. On slightly cooler days (ie 90 degrees) i’ve been wearing a pair of DIY Studded ankle boots which i purchases a couple years ago. pics up soon!

lastly, thanks for all the sweet comments, I will answer them all pretty soon so no worries ;)

Hi everyone! I’m going to start posting some of my paintings on the blog! :) I already posted some of my graphic design work as my first couple of posts on the blog so I decided to post my paintings as well. These are just for fun for when I was really bored at home so there’s no deep meaning associated to them necessarily lol. This is painting #1.

what should i call it? :)

Hope you guys like it

Snakes and Cages

My luck, I woke up late for work today leaving me with only 10 minutes to get ready. So this is what I came up with while I was tripping over stuff. As usual, Florida weather is above 90 degrees today so that really limits what i can wear. I have a love/hate relationship with Florida really. I love the fact that the beach is 20 minutes away and it feels like i’m on vacation 365 days a year but the heat really gets to me sometimes. I’ve always wondered if i could fry an egg on the roof of my car… This is something i need to try lol. I did some vintage shopping today after work and came across some pretty great finds. (I’ll post about them later) In other news, we’re getting a brand new radio booth at work :) and i’m very excited!!! I’ll post pictures once we move into the new stationnn. This is what I wore today :)
