Girl. Gworl....GWUUUURRRRLLLLL. GYAL! This dress tho... I'll wait...

Food printed on clothes, food printed on or shaped as accessories, food in my mouth....I think it's safe to say I'm a fan.

And all things that shine, sparkle, glitter, shimmer, flash, glint, etc...I'm pretty much a fan of as well....

I was pleasantly surprised on my Day-O-Birth, with this dress, by a significant someone, who knew me well enough to know that this print is right up my alley. They also knew that the last two prints from my most recent posts were up my alley as well (HERE & HERE). 

Out of all three of the dresses I didn't know which I was more excited to wear and I didn't know which really to wear first, but life really did pick for me. When it comes to clothing...there really is a time and place for it all, you have to feel it and sometimes it has to feel you. On on this day we were feeling each other.

I had this image in my head, over and over again, with me in one of my most fave jackets of all time (which is out of stock and upsets me because i wish you all could get it), and my safari hat...don't know why...just couldn't shake it.

So I just knew it had to be done.

I got my hat, my jacket, the dress, my boots that I've nearly crashed to shit (but trust me I still wear em' cuz there are no fucks given), I stacked a bunch of bracelets, and my finishing touch was a pair of pink leopard shades. PERFECT.


Don't you just love when you have an outfit on that has all of the elements that make up who you are, in one? I've had several on the blog, and they all look so vastly different from each other...but they still fully embody my style aesthetic completely, without skipping a beat. What outfit best hits every style note in one look, for you? Comment below, or show me using #CompleteStyleBeat

Let's just take a moment to appreciate the view of the back of my wrinkly jacket, for the win.

As for the dress? They wouldn't let me know where they found the dress at first (for fear I would buy everything up and not allow them to gift me thing slowly...they'd be right), but I did manage to get some info out of them.

  1. Hat from Jcp. $15 (On Sale)
  2. Necklace from Burlington Coat Factory. $7

Soooooooooo.......I consider myself a fairly authentic and unique individual, but sometimes (somehow) I end up coming up with like-minded ideas as others.  I know you may be thinking to yourself, "Chill's not that serious...", but to me it kinda is most times. I've gone so far as to not post things because others have, even if I've independently thought to do it. I just really have something against being like any other crayon in the box (or being in a box period). 

But sometimes...I really just don't care. This was one of those times.


When I first saw this duster blouse thing-a-ma-bobber, I knew more or less how I wanted to wear it and it didn't matter the external influences. And though there are several ways it can be worn (to which I will eventually showcase here on Le Bloggitay), I went with the no-brainer approach, but put my edgy spin on it because...have we met? 


As hard as it is for me, this isn't the first time I've had a "twinning" moment. I usually steer clear of it unless I'm dedicating a post to someone, but I think most people who have this piece kind of went in a similar direction off the bat. There's actually a few looks that didn't make it on here because I didn't post it in time and then BOOM, someone comes out with almost an identical outfit. **Waves fist in the air** #SOB #BloggerWoes

And then the world crumbles around you and you have to reevaluate life because you spent all this time on a shoot for no reason....LMFAO!!! Too real a moment? No seriously, I'm not that torn up about it, even though it can get annoying sometimes, but it's a reality I feel is not discussed at it's kind of funny to me.

In any event, here we are.


I paired this long and lovely, window pane printed duster, with varying textures of black on black on black. And if you're not entirely sick of my studded belt and my moto boots yet...don't you worry, there's plenty of time, I'll be playing these out for all of eternity.

What I'm Wearing:

  1. Duster button down from $24.98 (On sale)
  2. Noir tank top from $14.90
  3. Studded belt borrowed from my home skillet. 
  4. Motto leggings from $29 (On sale)
  5. Boots from $15 (On sale from $45)
