Wednesday Addams OOTD for Wednesday

Date, Dress, Fall, Halloween, Uncategorized

I’ll never get over a simple black and white OOTD, peter pan collars, or bold lips for fall. Right now, I’m getting some strong Wednesday Addams vibes from my makeup & fashion choices, but I ain’t mad at it. In fact, I’m loving Wednesday’s simple aesthetic. I’ve been her for Halloween before, and wore a peter pan collar dress my Mom actually made fo me. (Pretty awesome)

Not going to lie, I’ve been on the lookout for Wednesday-esque peter pan collar dresses for ever!

So have you decided what to dress up as for Halloween this year?

Top 3 Trends I’m Most Looking Forward To Wearing for Fall

As many of you know, I’m all about fall. Living in LA is like living in a tv show…which is a good thing, but it seems like you’re literally living on a set that always stays the same. I guess life imitates art. It’s pretty much always sunny, but once in a while you’ll get a nice gray autumn-y day starting in about October. (September’s just plain summer.)

I also can’t help but be on the Pumpkin Spice Bandwagon. Love it and can’t get enough of it. You have no idea how excited I am about hitting up Starbucks for my PSL and Trader Joe’s for my other assorted pumpkin essentials as soon as September rolls around. 🍁🍂🍁

So here are the top 3 things I’m most looking forward to wearing this Fall;

  • IMAG1538.jpg
  • 1- bomber jackets. I cannot get enough of bombers right now. I’m literally obsessed with them and want/need one in every color. This gorgeous mesh one with floral embroidery as well as everything else shown above and below is from Charlotte Russe.

These gorgeous embroidered ones above and below are by Fashion Nova.

Fashion nova’s stuff is beyond on fleek. Especially this bomber. 🍓🍓💣

The lovely & stylish demonstrates how fun wearing bombers can be.

  • Military/army jackets

All of these are Free People items, except for the tights. 

I absolutely adore this Free People jacket. The peplum/ruffle gives the typically masculine jacket a feminine edge. As you can see, I’m really into stripes too. Always been.

IMAG1375_1_1.jpg

Here, they’re all by Free People except for the culottes. They’re by American Rag.

This super cute military inspired long vet below is by Guess and the crop top is by Free People. Seeing a trend? Yeah. I love Free People. 👍💕 I love juxtaposing masculine coats and shapes with feminine thingsthings, like the gorgeous Jules Sarinana below.

She’s so cute here in her early days! Love her.

  • Trench coats

The soft and pretty one above is by Laundry. The jeans are by Free People, and the top is by French Connection. I cannot get over trench coats. Every fall and winter season I embrace them and doll them up a hundred ways. They never go out of style, they’re so classic and they can make a decent outfit upgrade to elegant.

Love this trench coat on her and this outfit. Found this pic on Pinterest. Does anyone know who this is?

So that concludes the three things I want to wear the most this fall. Of course, there are so many other things, which I will be covering! As you can tell, I wish it were cold enough to wear outerwear in LA…or that I were somewhere else. I love you LA, but I’m over this hot weather. 🌞

What kinds of posts do you guys like to read or want to see in the future?

Hunt for the Perfect Jeans

So you know how it’s sooo hard to find jeans that make your butt look good and basically hug you in all the right places? Me too. So that’s why I’m starting this series; “Hunt for the Perfect Jeans”. I’ll literally go anywhere or try anything to find the elusive “perfect” pair of jeans. Does it exist? Will they all suck? We shall find out! I’m so excited. 😀😏 First up: Urban Outfitters’ BDG high waisted jean.

  • IMAG1329.jpg

Here’s me bending down trying to take the “perfect” selfie/close-up. Not so much, but it shows the wash really well. Love this medium wash and distressing. I’ll be judging these jeans mainly based on three criteria: wash, cut/fit, abd material. So here are the pros & cons:

PROSPROSPROS

  • This wash.is.like.sopretty. It’s a medium indigo wash & I love it.
  • The cut. This cut makes my thighs and butt look good and you know, that’s like the main thing good jeans should do.
  • The fabric. The quality of these jeans is very good. The fabric is thick yet stretchy, which I really like. I’m not in love with super thin stretchy or super thick unstretchy jeans. I’ve heard wonders about vintage unstretchy Levi’s 501s. I will have to try them!

Cons

  • The price. 69.00 (+ 6.90 for shipping if you’re ordering online) they’re not exactly within my budget. If they’re within yours, I wish I could borrow your credit card cus I would order them in every color. I know some people spend $400+ on designer jeans, but some of us have college debt/a real life so..yeah. However, if you’re a 27 snag these now on Poshmark! I saw them there for $25. 😱💙🙌

That’s the only con I came up with though. I will definitely buy more and recommend them to friends. I once had a pair of BDGs for 7 yrs…wait I still have them. I will definitely buy more.

That sums up my first venture into the hunt for the perfect jeanss. By the way, if you love to read fashion magazines like me check out the articles on denim in the current issue of Elle. They are literally everything. Especially the one by Lizzy Goodman on jean shorts and the trajectory of badassery and rebellion they have had and the role they have played in her life. This issue seriously encouraged me to do this series, even though i was already thinking about it. 💙💙💙

This article is so literally me. 😍😍😍

Some more denim-y shots from this week:

The supercute bomber jacket, jeans, and keyhole body suit are all from Fashion Nova. 😍❤💕

IMG_20160722_082427.jpg

Couldn’t decide which top to get….so..you know..I need both. Top on the left from Free People and the one on the right from Lucky Brand. Both adorable. Lovely, sexy, and gorg skirt from Levi’s.

IMAG1277

All of these items are from American Eagle except for the sandals. I usually never shop there but I’m challenging myself for this hunt! I’ll be covering their jeans for sure because I loooved all this stuff.

IMAG1382.jpg

These are the Lucky Brand shorts I distressed and reworked myself a few weeks ago that I showed you guys. Still working on merch, just gathering funds! The t shirt is a Ramone’s tee I’ve had since high school. This shot is from a walk I took to the store. How exciting!

Love you guys! Thanks for reading! How do you like this hunt so far? Comments please. 😊😍💙

Today’s inspiration for new creations. I’ve been wanting to visit NYC for as long as I can remember (thanks Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Sex and the City, Friends, Seinfeld, Gossip Girl..and wait, well every one of my favorite shows! 😨😱😍) As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m working on some new threads that will be up in my Ebay & Etsy shops soon. Army jackets & jeans with patchwork would be so on-trend and chic for Fall. Believe it or not, Fall is my favorite season. As much as I fawn over summer fashion, fall weather, colors, layers and pumpkin spice lattes are so much better! 😀🍁🍂🚕👠🎨

Love you all for reading! What’s your favorite season or fall 2016 trend?

It’s took me a while to post these, but here they are! I distressed them myself, applied patches, and personalized them. I’m into the patch trend this summer and I’m planning on stocking my Ebay and Etsy shop with more styles! I’m currently gathering supplies. 😉🎨

Fashion Illustration // Inspiration for Design Project I’m Working On

Design, fashion, Fashionillustration, Illustration, Nature, Skirts, style, Summer, Uncategorized

IMG_20160629_140712I’m very excited to say I’m working on a design project. I’ve been researching and gaining inspiration for a little while, and I’m almost ready to make the actual products! Before doing so, I’ll be posting fabric swatches, more illustrations, (of the actual items) and more on my inspiration! So far, I cam say I’m being inspired by the natiral California landscape & traditional Mexican folkloric garments. 😀👖👒🌹

My vacation officially starts tomorrow and I am beyond ecstatic that I can dedicate all my time to my project, blogging, and music making. Yay!

Hope you’re all having an amazing summer so far! Make the most of it.

😉🌞✌❤

  • Chokers

res_1467085598577

What makes chokers so chic? I think the fact that they’re part 90s, part it girl. Loving pom poms too. ❤

What are your current obsessions?

Happy Monday!

Remember, it doesn’t have to suck as long as you do one thing you love today.

Love,

Maggie
