June is here! And with June in mind, summer is just around the corner (but if you live in California like me, summer begun months ago ..yea thanks to the icky hotness in cali!) The good news is, there are a few things I get to look forward to. Jason and I are taking a trip to LA next month and I am participating in my first designer challenge downtown Sacramento! I am so ecstatic to be sharing my work with others in my local area! So yes I will be creating a look. As a contestant, I can only choose 5-15 pieces (of clothing, tops, bottoms,..etc) from a local thrift store. I am responsible for using these pieces on my own model (which includes her hair and make-up). I'm fortunate enough to have a friend who is gorgeous and tall and agreed to model for me. Basically I will be creating a theme and story behind my look. I have so many ideas in mind, but I want to keep it a secret until the event. This is my first fashion/designer show! The prize includes exposure in a local newsletter, magazine and website. Wish me luck!
So speaking of thrift store pieces, I found this colorful dress at a local thrift store downtown Sacramento for only $15. The store is called Free Style Clothing Exchange . I LOVE thrift store's especially this one. If you live in the Sacramento area, visit this store! You will not be disappointed!
Of course, none of my outfits are complete without accessories. So I charmed up this dress with my new brinabox.com yellow statement necklace. This dress is so rad and cute already but this necklace just made it say va voom!.
Last week, I wore my J Crew inspired necklace with my red and white striped dress. Great combo!
Over Memorial weekend, I got the chance to hang out with my long time beautiful friend Gardenia. Gardenia is currently a writer and a blogger as well. She is such an ambitious young woman. Check out her blog if you have a chance ---> Social Flower
I also discovered a fun little app called "A beautiful mess". The photos from our camping trip were edited with this cute little app.. <3
Camping was tons of fun. I even came home with a major tan! :D Just in time for summer
Have a Beautiful week Everyone!
