Red Carpet Affair

Feb 27, 2016



Hey Luvs!
The Oscars as we know it in 2016 is the topic of much conversation, in fact we can say it's probably one of the most controversial. Politics aside we all watch the Oscars primarily for the fashion, seeing how our favorite celebs shine or fail when they are walking down that red carpet. 

And I in particularly, obsess over which looks killed it, which looks I would edit if I put it together, and the ones that I need in my closet. I know you do it too, we all do, there is no shame in the game. 

So in preparation for the Oscars, along with the tuxedo and suit rental experts at The Black Tux I wanted to show you how I would style my favorite male celeb and the look I would rock if I stepped out on that red carpet.

CELEB OF CHOICE

 
Yes Ladies and Gents, Mr. Michael B. Jordan in all his glory.

MY OWN LOOK

                        Vneck Jumpsuit                                     Tuxedo Cape                                                       

Because the cape is the statement piece in the outfit you don't want to draw away attention from it, so its best to pair with something muted and elegant, I chose a jumpsuit with a v neckline because it is clean cut, feminine and simple. 

I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Light Denim + Army Green

Hey Luvs,

First I want to address the lighting, anytime you shoot in natural lighting expect a few hiccups, like the sun going in and out, hence different lighting for different photos. However, I kind of like it that way it gives off a different depth to each photo. I went a little crazy with the photo taking and couldn't decide on what to omit, but it's my blog right!

I am always running late to school because I was taught to never leave the house without dressing well. And as I have been feeling extremely casual this last few posts, I have started to realize that I enjoy stylish yet comfortable clothing. Today's outfit was just that!

Financial Fitness for 2016

Feb 25, 2016



Hey Luvs,

So my blog isn't just about style and adventures its also a source of inspiration and advise. My previous post about my 3 steps to achieve your goals this year got a lot of amazing positive feedback and well I got a lot of people asking me about financial advise and just my luck that I was emailed and asked to do a post on helping bring awareness to financial stability for 2016. Today I bring to you my plan to be financial fit, this is in collaboration with Credit Card Insider.

Many of us own credit cards or debating on getting some and it is a very big step in our lives financially. But it is a very necessary step in order to build our credit, so I'll share my Financial Fitness Plan.

So in order to build my credit CCI suggests that you must already know where you stand so you can
move forward and create a plan specific to you. On their website it gives you knowledge and guides on how to establish credit based off where you are in life (student, new card owner, owner of multiple cards, etc.), very helpful information.

I am in no way a financial guru (the complete opposite), so I'll leave the big things to the real pro's. Remember to check out Credit Card Insider site in order to get knowledge and create your financial fitness plan for 2016! And when you create it let me know so that I may check it out. It is never too early or too late to get your life together financially!

I really enjoyed creating this post for you all because I know a lot of us, especially college students, like me, don't really think of how to organize, create, and know how our financial options will impact our life in the future. So I hope you guys feel inspired and go create your own financial fit plan for this year!

Sincerely Fay,

Dress: Urban Outfitter
Jacket: Forever21
Shoe: Nike

Hey luvs!
 I have another ensemble post for you to keep you posted.
This look was very casual and street tbh.
I opted to take off the snapback I was rocking the whole day because it was 
hindering my hair and all its glory!
For me, a girl who don't really rock dresses, to be able to wear something,
be comfortable and look amazing is key.
I like to take clean cut basics and pair them with layers and amazing shoes.

Hint ~
If you have a neutral piece its best to layer it (coat, sweater, jacket, vest, shirt) and to pair it with something that contrasts (statement shoe, vibrant color, different cuts, jewelry, mixing textures etc.)
I am in no way a "fashion" expert but as far as style goes,
it's something everyone can attain and make their own 
or own the style.

Be comfortable in your own skin! That is the true unique design.
Rock with yourself  and the rest will come.

The Pink Wall

Feb 16, 2016







 


 

 






Hey Luvs,

Last weekend I had a me day, and that included having a latte and pastries (yes I'm talking multiple) at a boheme spot in Long Beach, eating and thrifting in Little Tokyo, wrote some poetry at a cafe in Little Tokyo and headed to Melrose for the infamous Paul Smith Design wall otherwise known as "The Pink Wall". You aren't an official LA native if you haven't been nor heard about it (joking- lets be honest its a tourist attraction), very well known LA bloggers or aspiring have took at least one photo here.

I had the pleasure of "conversating" with the property security and he told me it doesn't even surprise him to see groups of people at all times of the day anymore. He said it's entertaining, and I agree. I managed to get a space because I was the first to arrive when I did; within 30 minutes 3 other groups arrived. Anyways I love colorful spunky settings and this wall will be the first among many to be apart of revamping my instagram (sigh). I am taking my city by the gutters.

Hi Luvs!

I have officially returned to the blogosphere, okay I went on a mini hiatus due to prepping for school, fixing my car,  and work. But enough of the excuses, I am back and ready to dive into all my plans for this blog. And there is no better way than to start it off with a outfit post. 
But I wanted to especially focus on styling this cool olive two-toned Tee from Urban Outfitters.
Enjoy!
