I will never get sick of wearing these

Welcome to the Jungle leggings by Bad Vibes, they are definitely my new
favorite bottoms. It doesn't hurt that they are the coolest and most comfortable pair of pants ever, but if that isn't enough, they are also created out of sustainable material by two LA babes who deserve major credit (check them out here and here). If you didn't see my last post (here), you will know I opted to do two consecutive outfit posts wearing them, showing two different ways they can be styled. I have to say I felt a lot groovier about this outfit, but what do you think?

Since moving to LA I have really been in more of a productive and creative mind set.
It feels good to be doing more of the things that make me happy (I know I talk about this a lot), but what else could be more important than realizing and moving toward what you are meant to do with your life? A lot of my anxiety and frustration has been stripped away and I feel myself enjoying more things. I am particularly, well, EXTREMELY, excited about the DESERT DAZE festival this weekend-a day of psychedelic music out in the Californian desert.

Check back later this week (and next) to read about some of the bands I'm looking
forward to seeing at Desert Daze, street style shots I've taken at the festival and to see my own festival look. And if you're reading this and are going to the festival too,
I would love to meet you!

   Life couldn't be any better now that I have Bad Vibes.

That may sound a bit backwards, but that's exactly what these amazing leopard leggings are. Bad Vibes is an LA based company that creates dreamy lace up shorts, leggings, rompers and bustiers out of soft velvets, vegan leather and the best prints. These are easily the most comfortable and stylish pair of pants I own and I am ecstatic to finally be the owner of one of my favorite independent brands, as well as support the creative owners (who are also bloggers: Madeline of Jean Greige and Brit of Disarming Darling).

Because I'm so in love, I thought I would show two different ways to
style the Welcome to the Jungle legging, so this is the first of TWO outfit posts
this week featuring Bad Vibes, check back Monday for the other!

sassy world launch

                    If you love fashion and female
          empowerment you're going to want to read this.

One of my favorite bloggers, Helena of Bells Fashion, launched the vintage site Sassy World over the weekend to give girls a vibrant escape into the thrill of fashion to empower and inspire them to wear what they want. The clothes reflect Helena's colorful taste, so if you like wearing bold colors, patterns, chunky shoes and plenty of jewelry, you are going to be in glitter and funky pattern heaven.

With the launch came TWO lookbooks (view the other here), which have me drooling with
the thought of completely revamping my spring wardrobe, as well as for the
goodies we will see in lookbooks to come!

               time to get sassy, the site has launched!

it's a sassy world

             I've discovered so many creative

             individuals since I began blogging

that I feel grateful to even know these people exist. Helena, blogger of
Bell's Fashion, and now Sassy World creator, immediately drew my attention when I first discovered her blog and has kept it because of her insane creativity, sincere personality and ongoing ambition. When I saw she was launching Sassy World, a site of collected vintage to reflect her colorful style, I was ecstatic and became more dazzled as I viewed the lookbook (another is coming when the site launches!) According to Helena, the clothes are meant to be an escape for girls "into a vibrant, girl power fuelled world, where they can feel inspired to have more fun with fashion," and I
wouldn't expect anything less inspiring or positive from her. I am looking forward to the
myriad of glitter and faux fur as well as future lookbooks, which will be
changed frequently!

                       official launch date:
                             APRIL 12

festival makeup

            If you're like me, you love any reason

     to dress up or get a little funkier with your style.

Coachella, coming up this weekend, is a great opportunity to be inspired by music
and style, including hair and makeup. Lately I have been loving glitter, colored liner, baby doll lashes, and a head full of flowers and braids, and these things can easily be exaggerated to create a perfect festival look. I also have some festival beauty etiquette to ensure that you look as hotass at the end of the day as you did when it started.

Day One:

Today you are going to be excited to get to the festival and will be fully rested
and not hungover (if you prepared correctly) so I would take advantage and go for a more
natural look. Apply a bright colored gloss or liner, let your hair be, and enjoy yourself.

Day Two:

Today you'll be feeling inspired and in full festival mode (as will everyone else)
so be a little more daring with your look. Try a glitter brow or head of hair. I would also suggest getting your hair out of your face with a couple of braids or slicked back with a flower crown, barrettes, etc, since your hair will be starting to get a bit greasy.

Day Three:

Today you're going to be a bit exhausted, and it will probably show. Apply a white
liquid shadow with sheen under your eye to help conceal just how tired you are and let
your tangly hair do all the work for you by putting it up in a messy top knot.

Also, drink plenty of water and bring chapstick. You're going to look as
good as you feel and it's important to stay hydrated!

lazy oaf summer '14 lookbook

Lazy Oafs quickly became one of my favorite brands

over the past year. They're quirky and original, and this collection definitely doesn't
disappoint (but I am a byproduct of the 90s and drawn to anything pastel). Shot in Tokyo,
this colorful summer collection has bold, feminine prints, the cactus being my personal favorite, in easy summer cuts and 90s teen dream flair. Lazy Oafs has a true dedication to weirdness, cartoon-like qualities and are indefinitely the wardrobe you wish you had when you were a kid.
