Loving the Leaves

A beautiful fall day, a perfect opportunity to wear fall colors! Everyone always focuses on the reds and oranges of fall, but green always pops into my mind. Recently olive-green has become a spotlight color in stores and magazines. Walk into any Forever 21 and the color is everywhere from tights to light-weight jackets! I took that color as inspiration for my outfit. Today I'm wearing an olive-green cotton shirt (Thrift-store), a floral skirt (Forever-21, $16.99), tan socks (Borrowed from my father), tan boots (Wet-Seal, $19.99), and I carried a tan envelope purse (A gift). Channel your own olive-green outfit this fall!

Trick or Treat!

Halloween has always been a large part of my life. From spending endless hours making costumes with my Mother to watching the classic horror films again and again with my older sister. Every year I make the most of October, spending weeks making or designing my costume. I have two costumes this year, one for a party and another for the actual night of Halloween. Yesterday I was a dead ballerina, wearing my old ballet costume, complete with skeleton makeup and a black tutu.

I've never been a girl to turn towards short tight costumes, every year I have to be dramatic and some could say glamorous with a twist. Heavy makeup and sometimes a wig are necessary for the full look to be complete. This year try to be creative with your costume, take old clothes from your attic, dig through your mothers old makeup from the 80's, even try watching a couture runway show. You never know where you'll draw inspiration from!

I had taken Ballet for 9 years when I was younger, that is why I happened to own a black tutu

At the party, my friend CJ was a vampire. We couldn't pass up the opportunity for a dramatic photo!
Happy October!
