My Fashion Wish List

It recently hit me that I haven’t bought any new clothes. I missed the feeling of coming home with tons of shopping bags. Being at college means my funds are limited, so I can only buy new clothes when I have the money. To cope with the fact that I don’t have the funds to buy more clothes, I’ve decided to create my wish list for clothes I wish I had!

Lottie Moss Lace Bralette Top, PacSun, $26.95
It’s a little bit on the sexier side, but it’s not too over the top. The intricate lace detail of the shirt makes this the perfect shirt for going out. It could be paired with jeans for a fashionable daytime outfit, and then can be changed into a skirt to go out. I would love to wear this with a leather jacket, and go out all night.

Amara Top, Brandy Melville, $22.00
I instantly was reminded of springtime and vintage stores when I saw this shirt. I felt like I could wear a denim skirt and walk right into a little cafe. I adore the little white floral pattern against the dark blue color of the shirt. I feel I should be going out on a picnic in this shirt right about now.

Robbie Dress, Brandy Melville, $38.00
The elegance of this dress makes me dream of walking down the streets of Italy. I’ve never owned a dress quite like this, but it’s so pretty that I just need to have it. It’s a simple dress, and the light colors of the dress reminds me of summer. White flats and a silver necklace would complete this outfit for a sophisticated yet casual look.

Vintage Green Surplus Hooded Jacket, Urban Outfitters, $69.00
I’ve always wanted one of these jackets. They’re more on the expensive side but it would be great for fall. The green color is darker so it’s not too flashy. I can picture it now: mom jeans, docs, and a black shirt with this jacket.

My list goes on and on, but these are the most recent items that have caught my eye. Maybe in the near future I can make my wish list a reality! I hope you all enjoyed this week’s post, and that your fashion wish list come true as well!

My Favorite Clothing Stores

I love shopping; I mean, it is one of my favorite pastimes! Whether it’s online or at a mall, buying new clothes is the greatest feeling in the world. My bank account may not forgive me, but a brand new skirt makes up for it! I bet almost everyone loves to shop as well. I’m sure everyone has their favorite store, and I have several. There are so many different clothing stores that it’s impossible to pick a favorite!

PacSun:
There’s a good chance that you have seen this store in a mall near you, and it’s recognizable by the large brown entrance. I love this store because the clothing really shaped my fashion over the years. I wouldn’t say I have a specific aesthetic for the clothes that I wear, but a lot of my style is inspired by what’s trendy in California. PacSun was founded in California, so a lot of their clothing is based on what is popular there.

A good portion of my closet is from PacSun. It’s trendy and simplistic at the same time; nothing is too over the top or crazy. The only downside is that they tend to be more expensive. However, the clothes they sell make up for the price.

YesStyle:
This online clothing store is based out of Hong Kong and has some very distinctive clothing items. All of the clothes are Asian brands, so there is a variety of different styles on the website. They tend to stand out more because it’s not the same style that Americans typically wear. They have stylized blouses and oversized graphic t-shirts among a variety of other different clothing options. I personally love the individuality of the pieces that YesStyle sells, and I enjoy that they aren’t clothes normally worn over here. They aren’t limited to just clothes; accessories, makeup, shoes and bags are just some of the items that are being sold on the website. It can be relatively cheap depending on what you order, however, it can take up to a month to be delivered.

Brandy Melville:
Brandy Melville has a similar aesthetic to PacSun, which is probably why I like their clothes. A lot of their items are basics, so their pieces can go well with anything, and they’re quite minimalistic. Brandy Melville is not very expensive because most of their clothes are around $20 at the most. They aren’t located in every state, but PacSun normally will sell their clothes. There’s a section dedicated to their brand, so it’s worth it to see what they have!

Urban Outfitters:
This is a store that I shop at after I get paid. It is definitely more expensive, but the clothes are all very stylish. It has a Tumblr vibe that I’ve always been attracted to. It isn’t just the clothes that I love, but I also adore the decor that they sell. They have an array of fairy lights, lamps, rugs, and just about anything to create the coolest bedroom ever! Their clothes also vary from brand names to their own label. Urban Outfitters is incredibly fashion-forward, and they often sell clothes that are trendy right now. Whenever I walk into an Urban Outfitters, it makes me want to divulge into self care and dress to impress every single day.

There can never be enough clothing stores in the world, and it’s hard to narrow it down to just four. I’m sure there’s a possibility that you know all of the stores mentioned, but if you don’t, you should definitely check out their clothes!

Who knows, maybe you’ll find a new favorite store as well!

TikTok E-Girl Essentials

Recently, I caved into peer pressure and finally made a TikTok account. I physically cringed at myself while typing that, but here I am with four 15-second videos, digging myself into a hole.

If you aren’t familiar with the app, TikTok is where you post videos of lip-syncs, trends, and just about anything you feel like.

There is already notoriety regarding “e-girls” on the app. I’ve come across quite a few e-girls already with their chains, layered shirts, and little hearts drawn under their eyes. I felt it would only be appropriate, since I clearly am experienced on TikTok, to try and dress like an e-girl!

I realized that I had a lot of clothes that would resemble what an e-girl would wear (I’ll blame my emo phase for that), but I had to narrow it down to a few pieces that I thought would sell the look.

I finally decided on a Dolls Kill cropped long sleeve shirt that was mesh. I bought it a while ago in high school, but only recently started to flaunt it because I have been feeling more confident. I know many e-girls wear long sleeves under their graphic t-shirts, so my mesh shirt worked because of the longer sleeves. To go with my e-girl look, I picked a black t-shirt with the word “VIBES” in cursive writing on the front. I felt it was simple enough to not distract from the mesh sleeves.

Now, I was choosing between two skirts that would go with my look. Originally, I had a black, front-zippered skirt with red checkering on the sides that zip. However, I felt it was too tame for what I was going for. Instead, I opted for a black and white checkered skirt. It was more attention-grabbing and it went better with the white lettering on my shirt. Doc Marten boots were essential for this outfit because they were a great, edgy addition.

To accessorize, I added a chain belt and black velvet choker for a more “goth” look to help me pass as an e-girl. Now, I’m no makeup artist by any means, so unfortunately I couldn’t do the thick eyeliner or the hearts under my eyes, but I felt my style got the message across.

Hopefully I’m doing this e-girl thing right! I hope you all enjoyed watching me attempt this transformation! I’ll see you all next week!

My Fave Fall Looks

Summertime is coming to an end, the leaves are changing, the smell of pumpkin spice is in the air, and the weather is starting to get colder (kind of). A change in the seasons always means a change in wardrobe, and breaking out my fall outfits is one of my favorite things to do!

I love being able to wear all of the layers and cute jackets that I couldn’t wear during the summer. I’ve decided to share my favorite fall looks with you all, and maybe you can replicate them in your own style! Below are some of my absolute favorite outfits that I busted out just in time for fall!

This black and white polka-dot wrap dress is one of my favorite dresses of all time. While it’s a cute dress for the summer, I prefer wearing it in the fall because I feel like it fits the season more. Brandy Melville sells a lot of wrap dresses, and that is where I found mine. Pairing this dress with Doc Martens boots gives a bit of an edge to something so feminine. I love how this look isn’t too dressy (no pun intended), but it’s not totally casual either. I usually accessorize it with a long silver necklace just to add a little more to the outfit before I head out. This is a cute look for going out or for a date night! 

I love denim jackets because they are such a staple to have in your closet. I have a lot, but it’s too humid in the summer to wear them. So, autumn is the ideal time of year to break them out! I decided on a pair of green plaid Brandy Melville pants and a black tube top that zips up to go with my jacket. I love how the pants and jacket work together to make a statement. Vans work perfectly with this look, so just add a chain belt and voila! Your outfit is complete, and it’s super comfortable as well.

Flannels are a fall must-have, and they’re just so timeless. They came back into fashion, and I am very happy because they’re so trendy. I decided to go for a more “’90s grunge” look and picked out my ripped mom jeans to go with my gray and black flannel. This flannel is a bit thicker, and I like how it appears a bit oversized. A simple white cropped shirt is a great addition because the flannel is what really makes the outfit. To fit the “grunge” aesthetic that I was trying to go for, I styled the look with my Doc Martens and boom! Another outfit done! 

Fall can create so many cute looks, and hopefully, my favorite fall outfits gave you some inspiration! Until next time, I’ll see you all later!
