Gray DIY cropped top, Navy American Apparel skirt, Brown thrifted belt, Tawny Jeffrey Campbell Snick Wedges <3.
I've toyed with the concept of minimalism for a while now, in my mind, but now, I've made it my fashion reality. This look basically, no pun intended lol, sums up what I feel minimalism means to me. I of course thought of American Apparel, their basics and key pieces are so versatile that just the shape, form, and beautiful colors can create a lovely silhouette for any outfit. I'm wearing my DIY cropped shirt and AA blue skirt. And in addition, the point of creating this outfit as minimalistic as possible, was so that I could show you my wonderful thrift-find!!
I found them at Crossroads in Berkeley :). And I haven't told you lovelies yet about the Impress For Less Contest by Crossroads/Chictopia..I was one of the winners! The style-profile will be up soon on their website :). I've kept it a secret/on the hush-side for a while now haha, but I guess I should share the great news! :) Soo, I've used about half of my $100 gift certificate towards these epic gorgeous Jeffrey Campbell Snick Wedges. They said "Size 8" when I saw them from afar on the shelves, but I decided to just try my luck & try them on. Luckily, they fit! Just like a Size 7 & I couldn't be any more happy :).
Onto more exciting news! Found out just yesterday, I was featured on Forever 21 The Skinny Blog on a fashion face-off alongside the beautiful Dylana of Nana in Wonderland, so far I believe she's winning the round, but I don't mind, at least I'm lucky to be compared to her :p. Check it out here!
Ooh and today, visited what's known on our campus as "Calapalooza," where you can find out about the hundreds (ok maybe i'm over exaggerating that number lol) of student organizations on campus by visiting their tables and such. A friend and I visited the BARE magazine specifically, I can't wait to join!! I'm going to the general meeting next week, and will def tell you all about it :), ooh and maybe take pics too!
Also, an update -- Meeting with the Trendy Rose Team this weekend to start the planning process of the Spring Lookbook Photoshoot I'll be styling/modeling in! Among other projects I'll help with. I can't wait! :) & Def recommend following this website, it will keep you up-to-date on anything fashion-forward <3.
