Photo overload.

haha this was an outtake, but thought it was funny how sometimes it's so hard for my bf to catch a pic of me walking :p.
 Tan H&M crochet sweater, Brown thrifted belt, Navy blue asymmetrical Sway skirt, Brown H&M fringe bag, Silver/turquoise Crossroads and Forever 21 rings, Dark brown Qupid wedge boots.

Morning Beautifuls!!  Since I haven't updated a lot this week, prepare for a big post of picturesss! :)  My outfit above just wearing everything I feel comfortable in, my essential belt, crochet sweater, comfy wedge boots, and of course, my go-to fringe bag, and to add something diff my high/low hem skirt.

Enjoy the photos below of my past weekend(s)! :)

Paul Mitchell Fashion Fantasy Show - 04/17
For last weekend, I was a model for the Paul Mitchell Fashion Show, the stylist students there had a theme of "Fashion Fantasy," where they had to interpret it their own way.  One of the students allowed me to come up with my own idea and style my own look (which I was SO excited for!).  So I chose something I've always wanted to do -- An Ice Princess theme.  I LOOVE glitterr and sparkly things! haha
Loraine Laurente, a counselor and part-time student there, did my beyond aamazing makeup.  The wildest I've ever had but the most detailed and pretty work on my eyes!
My hair was also done by another student, Claire Mayo, who is such a sweetheart.  She poofed up my hair and made is soft/wavy yet big and fierce :).
The middle one is when I was practicing a run-through for walking down the runway with my regular clothes.  First and last ones, of course were during the fashion show in my own DIY dress!! (I bought the dress from Goodwill, but glued on all the little crystals all over the bodice and flowed it down to the bottom of the skirt).  Paired the look with a vintage fur coat and grey suede Jeffrey Campbells.
And then after the show we all got to take photos with family and friends.  My boyfriend's to the left and my beautiful mommy is to the right.
Loraine Laurente for makeup! :)
Her other model was dressed as a peacock theme, Alyssa and then the lovely hairstylist to the right, Claire.
Alameda Vintage Faire - 04/16
Last Saturday, I also went out w/ one of my good girlfriends, Kaitlin (she is such a stylish girl forreals tho! check out her tumblr !) ;).  And we found aamazing pieces in that faire for such great deals, she found a vintage fur coat for only THIRTY dollars!!  Afterwards we ate our fave Cheeseboard in Berkeley :).
Blogger Meet-Up in SF - 04/23
Just yesterday, hung out with the beautiful and super sweet Nat of La Vagabond Dame.  Shopped at H&M, Sephora, Zara then ate at a local cute diner.  Was so funny and cute tho that we both, being true bloggers out in the city, had our huge cameras on hand with us.  Lets hang out around where you live girly, love ya Nat! <3

And now I'm off to a blogger meet up in SF (with lots from the bay area!).  I hope you lovelies are starting off to a wonderful weekend!!  Thank you so much again beautifuls for all your support on my blog, really now, your comments just make my day!  Tonight will be off to browse all your lovely blogs! <3
PS. I really really am going to make it a point to update my Youtube with a video this weekend!!  Stay tuned loves, including more exciting posts!!! :)
<3, Kathleen.

What a fun week! I love how the skirt is long in the back. Super cute. AND THAT EYE MAKEUP! Whoa.

Kathleen! You are SUCH a busy girl. I love your asymmetrical skirt - and your boyfriend is a great photographer. He takes better pictures than mine does, at least.

I wish I could've gone to that Paul Mitchell show! That make-up is crazy - I love it though. You are such a gorgeous model. AND Deanna was telling me on the BART ride back that you are going to be in BARE's next issue - I had no flippin' idea! But I loved hanging out w/ you today! We need to go shopping/hang out/eat/whatever soon.

Isabel Hendrix said...

wow, wow, wow! what a full post! I am going to go from the top: I looove your rings, especially the turquoise one with the two stones.. and your dress is great, the shorter in the front and longer in the back is such a nice look I think. That fashion show looks like so much fun! I love how your hair was done! really fabulous! It sounds like you had a nice time with your blogger friends! None of my good friends are bloggers, so I am jealous of the connection you can have with them.. Have a fun time in San Francisco (my hometown) with the blogger meet up! And I cant wait for your next youtube video, they are always the best!

Natalie Suarez said...
