70's flare lovin'.


Light pink H&M lace blouse, Brown thrifted belt, Dark blue H&M flare jeans, Gray Jeffrey Campbell suede Foxy's, White Goodwill vinyl bag, Brown Forever 21 feather earrings.

Hi Lovelies!!  The rest of my week has been veryy hectic for preplanning for the photoshoot I'm styling for this weekend for the fashion website called Trendy Rose!  I am soo very excited to share with you all the lookbook once it's all finalized and put together :).  I put a lot of hard work into this so I hope it turns out good!  Anyways, that is the reason of my little hiatus, sorry loves for the absence :/.  I definitely want to still create a vlog post soon for my Youtube channel, one will most likely be created soon before school starts! :)

Aand along with preparation for the shoot, I have been on-and-off shopping, sigh I went to the local mall with my boyfriend just to window-shop, came out with two BIG bags from H&M and F21.  Sigh, I can't help it!  And here I am wearing one of my newest purchases from H&M, a 70's inspired flare jeans..they fit me perfectly!  And the price was aamazing for the great quality, only $40!  Definitely recommend visiting your H&M because they also have other flares for only $20!  Love that thrifty shopping right there ;).  And also, wearing my other H&M lace pink blouse.  To make the outfit even more 70's (a fashion era as you can tell I'm simply looving at the moment), decided to wear my sky-high Jeffrey Campbell foxys :).  
--
I recently was contacted by the lovely Mina of Even Artichokes Have Hearts Blog, who nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger Award!  Thank you so much girl!!  I really appreciate it :).  So I will now pass on this lovely award to 10 bloggers I feel have made a creative contribution to the blogosphere, as Mina has said in her blog post about this: "whether it be through a creative design/photo's or creative and unique posts, crafty diy pursuits, or simply some great creative personal style."  In all reality though, each of my readers, definitely deserves this, your creativity inspires me everyyy dayyy :).
Also, along with this have to list 10 things about myself:
1) I have been a pescetarian (no meat but fish) for about 6 years now and still going.
2) Which leads me to..I can't give up fish, because I love sushi WAY too much, and also for Filipino food, theres a dish called "Sinigang," really good fish soup with veggies, SO GOOD.
3) I'm a food lover, but I'm more of a sweets-lover -- all time favorite sweets: Red Velvet cupcakes and Banana Cream Pie from Nation's, YUMM.
4) In junior year of high school, I dyed my hair a burgundy red, just because I loved Hayley from Paramore THAT much haha.
5) I have three younger brothers, and I'm the oldest and only girl -- which makes it kinna annoying cause my dad is always so protective of me. sigh, yea im a daddy's little girl.
6) I was in AP Studio Art in high school for two years started in junior year.  Which is a great passion of mine -- I loove art, I love drawing though more than painting :).
7) My first year of college I was one of the models for a fashion show the theme of empowerment for women..they did a craazy hair-do on me where my head felt like it weighed 10 lbs. (yea i exaggerate) but they teased it so much I looked wild and crazy. Took me ONE HOUR to detangle all the knots in the shower.
8) One time in freshmen year of high school I found out I was in the top 10 friends on the John Tucker Must Die myspace page..I thought that was SO cool lol.
9)  I loooove nutella SO much, whenever I pass by this one crepe place in SF, they have this HUGE jar of it..I always contemplate if I should grab it really fast and run away with it. Then..I think again that would be weird running through BART with a big jar of nutella :P.
10) When I was a little girl, I practically dressed up as ALL the Disney princesses, I was even Megara from Hercules..is she a princess?  Well, I thought she was lol.

Hope you all will have an aamazing weekend!!  TGIF! And keep inspiring beautifuls, am now going to browse for some fashion eye candy from your lovely blogs :).

<3, Kathleen.

Kathleen, this is probably one of my most favorite outfits of yours ever. You look like a doll! I love how you channeled the 1970's look. I just invested in a pair of flares myself, I'm so glad they've made a comeback! And that white purse is such a fantastic thrift find.

Have a lovely weekend dear!
