Fashion’s Night Out

Fashion’s Night Out at The Bellevue Collection was a super great experience. It’s not a fashion show or anything but it was still really cool.

Lizzie Parker

They had designs from local designers like Lizzie Parker and Lisa Van Hunter. I actually saw Lisa & Lizzie at the party.

Lisa Van Hunter

Speaking of the party, I got there early enough that I was on of the first 200 people (who RSVP’d) to get to go to this party and get a free swag bag.

Inside was a super cute bag from Free People and a bunch of coupons for a bunch of stores in the mall.

Also, at the party were snacks from Pinkabella Cupcakes, TopPot doughnuts, and Cinnabon. It was awesome!

After the party, my mom and I walked to a bunch of stores that were promoting giveaways and special discounts for this event. My favorite store that I visited was Kate Spade New York. I love her style of clothing. It has a vintage flare. Plus, the shop itself was so cute looking. I was in love. But of course I couldn’t afford anything.

I loved Fashion’s Night Out and I would definitely go there next year. Maybe I will even try to get into another fashion event during Fashion Week. It would be a dream!

Back to School Tips and Tricks

Here are some useful tips and tricks for back to school.

What I like to wear is a dress on the first day of school. I like to wear a dress that is not to much to worry about but something easy but still very cute because you will be walking around a lot.

One trick I do on the first week of school is I plan out what I’m going to wear for the whole week. That makes it so much easier in the mornings. And to make it easier when planning out for the week, I always check the weather. I check the weather because I can know if it will be hot or that morning so that I know how many layers to wear or if I need to wear jeans instead of a skirt.

The second tip for school is to be prepared. I like to get all my stuff ready in the morning so that means my outfit, backpack and even lunch. And also be prepared with things in your backpack. I always keep a pair of pants and a shirt in my backpack just in case I need it.

For school, you don’t always need to have the newest and trendiest clothing. Everybody has a different view on fashion. Wear clothes that make you feel confident and comfortable. You don’t want to wear a skirt if you’re on of those people who just don’t wear skirt, just because everyone else is. Wear something that’s eye popping. Something fresh and new. I always wear my new clothes n the first couple weeks.

I hope these tips were helpful and you will be able to use this for your back to school routine.

Birthday Shopping 7/9/12 *UPDATE 3*

All I wanted for my birthday was to go shopping (of course!) Here are the items that I got for my birthday!! And don’t worry, there is more to come. I will be update the post throughout the summer. Enjoy!

Half-Zip Hoodie- PINK

I love this jacket because it is very thin and perfect for summer. I also got this because it’s lavender and that’s my favorite color.

Dark wash Denim Jacket- Love Culture

I have always wanted a denim jacket. For me, denim jacket match with about everything. I wear this jacket with my new dress up above and it looks fabulous. I think it finishes an outfit.

Brown High-Low Dress with belt- Forever 21

I got this dress because I love brown colored dresses. Plus I thought the belt was super cute and I could wear it with other outfits.

Mini Bailey Button- UGGS

I have wanted UGGS since the 4th grade. I thought they were very stylish and cozy. I also got chocolate color because I wanted something different from the usual tan colored boots I get.

Indo Classic Slip-On- TOMS

It was so hard for me to pick a pair of toms. They have so many cute styles! But I finally picked this grey patterned shoe. I thought it was going to be a good pair of shoes I could just put on a pair of jeans and a top and wear these shoes.

Orange Pencil Skirt-Charlotte Russe

I like this skirt because it’s not as short as other skirts I tried on and plus this color is very flattering on me.

Essential Linen Blend Sweater- Forever21

I like this sweater because it is very basic and casual. Plus you can layer this sweater under a blouse which looks very good.

 

 

 

Neons!

Neon clothing, or as I like to call it, highlighter color clothing, is super fun! I love neon colors because it’s so bright and everyone will notice you. Plus, it is the perfect thing to wear during the summer. There are also a lot of different styles you can wear from shirts to shorts to dresses and accessories. What’s really perfect is to wear one neon color with another. My personal opinion is that if you wear, let’s say, a neon yellow shirt with yellow pants, I think it is a little overpowering or tacky. But it would be cute if you wore a neon pink shirt with neon green shorts and a neon pink thin belt.
Here are some of my personal favorite neon clothing:

 

Mossimo Supply Co. Juniors Denim Short

Neon Animal Bodycon Dress

Black Light Optional Neon Yellow Fuchsia Dress

Dolce T-Strap Sandal

Printed Crochet Fringe 2fer Top

Summer Maxis and Rompers

The best thing for me to wear in the summer is something that is comfortable and keeps me cool. I think Maxis and Rompers are the perfect thing to wear this summer. I love maxis because they can be beautiful, long, printed dresses that are very flowing so it’s very easy to move around. These kinds of dresses are perfect with a pair of shades and thong sandals.

Rompers are perfect to wear anywhere. There are also many different styles. They range from just one color to different prints. If I were to wear a romper I would either wear it with a pair of Vans or sandals, sunglasses (of course!!), and a medium sized belt to help distinguish the romper.
