Feathers and gladiators.

Black thrifted straw boater hat, Light peach top (swapped from my friend), Light blue Levi's high-waisted denim shorts (thrifted from Wasteland), Brown paigie wagie sells things feather earrings, Urban Outfitters gladiator sandals, Brown thrifted bag, Brown thrifted belt.

Hi beautifuls!!  Soo yesterday, well actually, the entire week was pretty hot outside in terms of temperature.  And so with this outfit, just had to wear some comfy casual clothing..this would most likely be my go-to summer outfit, but just felt like wearing it out now :).  I'm really loving the color of my new top, which I recently swapped with one of my friends -- it's a peach coral color and very bright!  To add on to the brightness, I wanted to finally wear my coral/rose YSL lipstick!  It's a subtle but bright pink?  Very ironic but I love how smooth it is!  Wearing my comfy comfy thrifted Levi's from Wasteland and my new Urban Outfitters sandals which were on sale!!  Definitely if you're looking for cheap pretty gladiator sandals, visit UO! :)  Also, wearing my new purchase and loving at the moment in terms of my favorite jewelry piece -- long feather earrings!  I bought them from an etsy shop called paigie wagie sells things, the owner makes AMAZING feather earring pieces, for such a great thrifty price, mine were only $18 including shipping.  I definitely recommend, if you love feather earrings, to get some from her shop :).
Yesterday was super exciting as I got to attend a Project Runway Macy's event with the lovely Theresa Rose of Trendyrose.com, and we got to see Mondo!!  He was so energetic, funny, and aamazing in person.  There was a styling competition, but he randomly chose people from the crowd, sigh haha.  But I really enjoyed seeing all the clothes the models wore, was definitely one of my fave fashion events so far!  Best part though, Mondo complimented both our outfits :).

Soo another update I wanted to share with you all..just on Thursday, after submitting my resume, I was asked to come in for an interview for an upcoming jewelry line called chloe + isabel, it is NYC-based and the jewelry designers also designed for Kenneth Cole and Tiffany & Co. to name a few, I was so excited and the description itself definitely fit me well: entrepreneur, tech-savvy, fashion-lover, etc.  So I went there all jeweled up and after the interview, found out I was hired!  It's for an entrepreneurial merchandiser position, so I'm super happy to get started!  I'll have my own personal website underneath their main company website to sell their jewelry on as well (kind of like a virtual corner office).  Once everything gets up and running for me, I will definitely let you know all about it soon..and give you all first dibs on what the jewelry line will be about!!  I definitely would super super appreciate all of your support on my business venture with this company.  Can't wait to have you all along on this exciting ride in my life with me :).
To be up-to-date when the website will officially launch, definitely subscribe on their website at Chloeandisabel.com :).

Thank you once again lovelies for all your sweetest comments and support.  In addition, a separate giveaway post will be made by this weekend forsure!  Sorry for the delay lovelies, school & work once again!  But, definitely keep a look out for that post :).  Have an aamazing weekend beautifuls!! :)
PS. A new video is up on my Youtube channel! :).
