Citrine


hello darlings! I missed you guys ♡
I have been loving the weather lately, it's the perfect feeling you think of when you hear the word autumn. I'm so excited for the holidays, I think I will make some holiday gift tutorials on here in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out for those! I'm in the process of completely re-doing my room as well as starting a new job, so please bear with me here but please keep sending me lovely suggestions and comments, I always appreciate them :)







I love how mod this yellow/citrine dress is! It kinda reminds me of the 60s Star Trek tv show.
I paired it with some cute mickey mouse head patterned tights, and my favorite ankle boots with gold buckles that I got on clearance at Target! Also kind of in love with this gorgeous floral painted handbag! It has removable straps so you can either carry it like a purse or use it as a backpack! The print is so pretty, it's slightly textured and reminds me of beautiful old oil paintings.

Also if you haven't already, please check out my online shop: Picture Posy! I'm selling some cute patches, comics and bags!

I'll see you guys soon ♡

Black Black Black

Hey guys, it's been a while but I'm back!
The end of summer is approaching, and as bummed as everyone is about it, it's bittersweet for me. Less fun in the sun, but autumn is my favorite season (my birthday is in autumn!) and I can't wait. 
I don't know if you know this or not, but I'm obsessed with Halloween, always have. I love the gothic decor and cutesy ghosts and pumpkins, and witches! Anyway you can probably tell anyway from my outfit. This awesome chandelier dress is from Better Stay Together on etsy!

 These suspender leggings are amazing. I just got them from Deb! When I was in middle school, Deb was every girl's place to shop for dresses for the school dances and whatnot, but it never appealed to me or my style. I think they totally stepped their game up in the past few years and have some awesome finds. Their Plus Size section is pretty cute too!


Talk to you guys soon ♡

Tough Girl


Lately I really love pairing really feminine pieces with masculine elements, it helps keep things from looking too formal, and more chill. I got this amazing army vest c/o of Oasap, and it goes so well with everything, I also love that it has waist ties so that it still gives me an hourglass shape. If you're a little too timid about wearing form fitting dresses, I recommend pairing it with an oversized jacket or sweater, it's nice added security and looks cute in comparison to your figure!

Scarlet Fever

Today is too beautiful a day not to spend outdoors, it finally feels like spring is here! The weather had been so gloomy this past week, I was starting to get the blues, but my go-to remedy for the blues is lots and lots of RED! It probably sounds so lame, but wearing red (be it red lipstick, red shoes or a red dress) makes me feel so powerful; a force to be a reckoned with! I encourage you all to try it.


Real talk, how perfect is this dress?! It's vintage from etsy, and it fits like a glove! It's so rare for me not to have to do any alterations to a dress because I'm short and have mondo hips and bubs but a teeny waist.  ANYWAY, amen to this dress, amen to this day. Hot Damn!

Shoes are Guess by Marciano, Maeve boot pumps from Solestruck, lipstick is Nars Fire Down Below

Happy April 25th ♡

DIY Donut Purse

NOPE



a while ago, joe from nope was so kind enough to send me a shirt from his brand, and of course I was super excited! I cut mine into this sleeveless crop-top, for maximum badassness. I paired it with a pair of high waisted shorts for a slim silhouette and sunflowers to make it a little more girly. this shirt just makes me feel cooler. joe’s designs are bold, clever, funny, and just plain awesome. oh and of course the shirt’s super comfy too! definitely check out his shop and support his work, he puts care into every package and even sends along little goodies too! I can’t wait to see what else he comes up with.
