Red skinnies.

Red Target skinny jeans, Gray Forever 21 cardigan, Black Anarchy Street sheer cape blouse, Brown Qupid lace-up wedges, Brown thrifted bag & belt, F21 and thrifted accessories.

Hi Beautifuls!!  Wanted to share with you the brightest item I think I have in my closet haha, but one of the quirkiest and unique pieces I own -- my red skinny jeans!  Believe it or not, I got them during high school junior year, and who knew? -- 5 years later they'd still be in style??  I've been seeing on the blogosphere so many unique colors in pants/jeans, I particularly love the coral/peach color jeans (I'm eyeing some at UO right now lol).  But for now, I have my red skinnies.  I actually wore them on campus, but from the convincing of my fellow tweeters, I decided to wear them out :).

Today was also the Sway Spring Fashion Show, a local clothing store that sells really pretty pieces, a little reminiscent of Free People with a little bit of Forever 21.  One of my close friends (and soon-to-be model for one of my shoots I'm styling!) was also one of the models at the show, so definitely wanted to support her :).  The girls really looked so stylish in all their pieces, such a great marketing idea of having a fashion show and then a sale right afterwards where everyone was buying/trying on things left to right :p.  I also attended with my fellow Berkeley fashion blogger loves, Deanna of A California Dreamer and Anisa of The Laugh Slut, sadly was missing Sherrie of Closet Hound.  Overall the event was really a success and I left with two aamazing pieces I can't waaaait to style and share with you!!  (I'll keep them as a surprise haha).
A few outfits I looved from the show, the models were so pretty!

Wow, k so I've been noticing a trend lately..I've been attending a lot of fashion events!  Speaking of fashion events, I was invited to model for a charity fashion show for Paul Mitchell!!  I'm super excited, the theme is:  fashion fantasy :).  In addition to all the fashion shoots.  I just love the thrill of going to all these things related to fashion..I can really tell this is something I love to do.  Makes me so excited for the future :).  

SO, big news, well for me I guess haha, I'm having my hair appointment tomorrow at Edo Salon!!  I'm so excited.  K, for a $300 gift certificate I'm praying my hair will turn out right! lol.  I'll def take pics once it's done, but I'm getting a whole new color and possibly long layers :).  Also, spring break is coming so fast! (Next week!!)  I caaannot wait!  Alrighty lovelies, I hope you all are doing well.  And once again, thank you soo much for all the blogger LOVE.  A personal giveaway from me is coming 'atcha sooon! ;)  Good night beautifuls and have an amazing rest of your week!
PS. Exciting blog news coming soooon!! :)

<3, Kathleen.

That's so neat that fashion styles make comebacks. Good thing you kept those red skinnies, they are hot! (I love how your purse and wedges make a perfect pair, too.)

Can't wait to see how your hair will turn out, so exciting!

and whooooaaaa $300!!! i cut my own hair :P

Karyn said...

I love the red jeans look. I was tempted to run to Target and buy a pair until I realized they were form back in the day -- exactly why I hate to give up many of my clothes, since they always come back in style.

Oh and I love SWAY! I lived in SF for 8 years, I completed my MA and BA at SFSU, so I can honestly say I left my heart in San Francisco! Love the Bay!

Anisa said...

Girly, you rocked those red skinnies so freakin well! You and only you can do such a thing! As I've told you last night, I am completely in love with your top, sharsies ;) ahaha! Last night was really fun, i always love hanging out with you at these fashion events, I can't seem to drag any of my friends out with my anymore, sigh!

KATHLEEN! Your posts always make me sad that I'm missing out on events/outtings :( But I love those jeans on you girl - and I doubt I could fit in my high school jeans if I tried bahaha oh I hate you college food. And I remember telling myself when I saw this outfit on facebook that "Shoot I need to ask her what size those boots are so I can borrow them..." Those shoes are killer, girl!

Love the red jeans, don't you just love it when something you've kept comes back into style? I had a pair around 10 years ago and they definitely didn't look that good on me!

I feel like I can never wear anything red now that I go to UCLA (USC Trojans rivalry). Is it the same for you guys at Berkeley since that is also Stanford's school color?
