Mod Vixen – Photo Shoot

My amazing friend Jess has a vintage store on etsy that you must visit: ModVixen. She has a great eye for timeless finds. A few weeks ago my friends McKenna, Kate and I did a little modeling photo shoot for her. We were all so in love with the outfits, that it was hard not to just open up our wallets and buy it all. It was tons of fun.

Be sure to visit her shop to buy any of what you see below. I’ve added the links for everything.

Not making excuses

I have so busy lately that I haven’t had any time to post anything. I am frustrated… but that’s life. I feel like my work life goes from being extremely busy to having too much time on my hands. How do we balance? Or do I only care about balance because I am a libra?

What I Wore: Feeling Latina

Who doesn’t like to connect to their heritage, eh?

Last week I was feeling a little inspired by a vintage embroidered blouse that I thrifted. I found it in the Halloween section and had to snatch it up. I felt extra Mexican in it (I am half), and added some gold hoops. My hair is also back to my normal color, brown. All together, the day was full of compliments, so I guess I should try the look more often.

Have you visited the the Halloween section of your thrift store? I have had the best luck finding great pieces.

Window Shop Wednesday: Fall Dresses

Fall is just around and the corner. Normally, it’s my favorite season. I love fall colors, boots, sweater… and my birthday is in October. This year, I feel a little sad about saying goodbye to the warm weather. To cheer me up, I spent some time window shopping around for some inspiring looks. Here are my favorites from shops including ModCloth, Dear Creatures, and Anthropologie.
