50 Shades of Ye (or what I call Fall Fashion)

Kanye West

 No, I won't be going through the 50 different pairs of Sunglasses that Kanye might have. ::Shutter shades in EVERY color:: I actually want to highlight some new looks for fall that I fancy or have fancied before and they are coming back!

You see these pants? I would totally rock them, IN FACT I have rocked them! I own a similar pair that I got in Spain circa 3 years ago. I'm not sure if Boston is ready for them, but I plan on  bringing them  back out this fall season.  This style is actually from's new female counterpart Miss KL, so I have them to thank for bringing back some much needed attention to my B/W striped pants currently in my closet!

Above you see some new Nike: Zoom Rookie Galaxy Glow in the Dark Shoes + Laces... and you also see my affinity for a life in Tron or Metroid. Yep, these sneaks are HOT and glow in the dark. More things should be glow in the dark, just saying.

Finally, because color blocking doesn't seem to be a dying trend and solid colored slacks have hit the masses this summer in full force, I think the only way to go from there is chameleon. What I mean is adapt. Adapt your pants into the Fall, like the example above.  You can totally make it work through to Fall. (Yeah, and if you are wondering- I did have a red and a green pair of pants also influenced by my time in Spain. That or I am just that ahead of the game =D). 

Don't forget the other big trends:

  • Striped shirts (as you see above)
  • Sheer shirts are gaining steam still, but be sure to wear them... with fashionable taste. It's not always about the skin showed-- it's about rocking the style and bringing the style to life with your own personality. 
  • Full Shoulder Nudity (not full frontal, but just as sexy.)

Big Room Makeover!

HEY hey,

There are so many great changes going on and I figured why not redo my room! This actually happened a few weeks ago-- but I put a video together about how I used decals for my dressers!

First of all, I was inspired by Lisa Pullano of Beauty Splurge and her Damasque inspired room! I've had my room Arabic styled for awhile and I wanted a more contemporary look.

Dressers were from Craig's list! Make sure you have a friend with a Truck =) and maybe some pepper spray on the slim chance you end up meeting a pornographer killer guy. I ended up meeting some Brazilian guys-- who used those cabinets for holding alcohol.

Decals were from and I looked long and hard to find the right style of Damasque that I liked. These were more pricey than just buying a stencil and painting the doors, but I wanted to keep the option later on for removing them---- and maybe so I didn't spill black paint all over my room.
  • Item: 10973446
  • Description: Damask Silhouette Vinyl Wall Deca
  • Quantity: 2 @ $13.99
  • Shipping was AWFUL though.

and lastly, I threw together a painting really quickly to tie the room together! That was much easier to do than it looks! If you want any more on this just let me know! Byez.
