VINTAGE VALENTINO.

ImageImageImage

 

My best friend Dakota and I were killing time the other day before our dance rehearsal and we figured we would pop into a great little thrift store here in Vegas called Electric Lemonade. What character that store has! I love vintage shops because you always find the most interesting pieces and sometimes there are even opportunities to barter.

Dakota and I found some really cool stuff and I am beating myself up for not getting this pair of rad sunglasses I came across, but I DID find these gems! 

These are amazing vintage authentic black leather Valentino short boots. I am dying over everything about them, especially the lizard-like panels on the sides. These boots are so versatile and are a great height. I HAD to have them.

Again, these babies are from a local Las Vegas vintage thrift store called Electric Lemonade.

I am pretty sure they retailed for around $40. PLUS they are from the 70′s. ;)

Super happy to have these added to my collection. Comfortable Valentinos? Um, yes.

PRABAL GURUNG FOR TARGET. PURCHASE & THOUGHTS.

I stopped by Target the other day to check out the new collection designed by Prabal Gurung, one of my all time favorite designers. I had an invitation to the launch party while I was in New York Fashion Week but I sadly had to turn it down as it conflicted with something else. I had very, very high expectations for this collection so maybe I entered the store with the wrong mindset.

I can’t blame the selection on Prabal, I can only blame the stock at my particular Target location. The rack was not amazing and everything in my size had already sold out so I was quite disappointed. I definitely should have jumped on this collection a little earlier, and maybe just shopped online. The collection can be found HERE

BUT I am obsessed with this pair of shoes that are from the collection. I had to get them especially with spring upon us (I think. The weather here is quite manic depressive). 

I love these shoes because of the mirrored almost plate-like accents on the straps and back heel. It gives the sandal a slight gladiator or warrior silhouette. Plus the shoes are very comfortable!

Definitely posting looks with these shoes soon!

SCHOOL STREET STYLE. VOLUME I.

Image

 

I know 98% of the time, I have about 2.5 seconds to get dressed before school in the morning. I am always half asleep grabbing whatever seems like it goes together, and an oversized sweater is definitely my go to piece. 

I have always found the most inspiration not only from the clothes on the catwalk, but hanging on the bodies of the people in my surroundings. I took my camera to school and decided to compile a bunch of pictures of styles I loved. There is enormous range within these outfits so here is a look into some “school street style”.

First … my best friends. My soulmates. Khalah & Dakota. Without them, I don’t know where I would be.

AMERICANO.

I am definitely jumping on the “American Flag” trend! It is so fun and the contrasting patterns are fun to play with!! I also love mixing denims, like darks with lights or distressed with acid-wash!
