White lace bohemian sun.

White c/o Hardcouture lace long-sleeved top, Brown thrifted woven belt, Coral American Apparel high-waisted shorts, Brown H&M fringe bag, Tawny Jeffrey Campbell clog wedges, Turquoise/silver Crossroads & F21 rings.


Hi Beautifuls!  It was yet another pretty day outside, so wanted to wear shorts once again.  And sorry in advance if I overuse this fringe bag, it's seriously one of my all-time favorite bags -- and I think, went perfectly with my JC snick clog wedges.  Another goodie I received from Hardcouture, was this beeautiful white lace long-sleeved top.  The lace is gorgeous and is perfect for summer with the loose and light fabric.  It reminds me too of the 70's, with long bell bottom sleeves, a fashion era I lovee currently.  Wanted to also make it more spring by adding these American Apparel shorts in a bright pretty coral color.  Again, another bohemian look from me, with fringe and clogs together.  Sometimes I feel like I belonged in the hippie days and I was a flowerchild....maybe that's why I ended up in Berkeley? lol.
Found these oh so pretty purple flowers near my house, and decided to take advantage of its springtime beauty.  Love how I can still take pics even when it's 5pm, <3 me some Daylight Savings Time! :)

So wanted to share with you a few things fast approaching..next week/weekend is going to be my busiest!
Thursday: Run-through for the Paul Mitchell Fashion Show (hair/makeup/clothing), Friday: Meet up for the first time w/ one of my faave blogger girls, Joellen at Haight St. SF, Saturday: Morning: Alameda Vintage Faire shopping w/ one of my girlfriends Kaitlin, Evening: My little brother's girlfriend's Cotillion at SF, Sunday: Modeling in/styling my own look for Paul Mitchell Fashion Fantasy Show in Pleasant Hill.
Wowza, yeah, so I'm pretty busy.  Sorry for listing everything, it kind of helps me too --to go through what I have planned lols.  Btw, one random fact about myself, ever since elementary school I've been using a planner, any kind whatsoever, I feel it really helps to stay organized! So if you do not own one yet, def recommend getting one! :)
Alrighty, blogger loves, I'm bout to browse and be amazed by all your beautiful looks/blog posts, and will go work on trying to figure out how to use a thrifted sewing machine me & my mom recently bought.
--
Also!  Am happy to announce the three winners of my personal giveaway!!....
You lovelies will be receiving an email from me shortly.  Congrats to FASHION ICE (will get the white floral headband), I FLY A STARSHIP (will get the gold clutch), and A Trendy Blog (will get the yellow floral headband)!  Thank you to everyone for entering and stay tuned for more chances to win many other giveaways to come on Inspirafashion! :)
