trend alert: holographic hues.

.holographic meets galactic meets futuristic.

That's right all you babes!
Metallics are being taken to a whole nutha level. 
Silver and gold just aren’t cuttin it any more.
It’s time to step out of that comfort zone of yours and... go gallactic.

But remember ladies. That one simple key rule--"Everything is fun in moderation." 
So with that said, don't get too crazy or you'll start lookin like a Hershey's kiss, or even worse, the Tin Man.  Save these ideas for Halloween.

valentine's day 2013.

Happy Valentine's Day my lovely blog readers! 
I appreciate each and every one of you, although there ain't much of a following. 

I'm not usually huge on Valentine's Day, but this year, I am proud to spend it with the most amazing man ever, my boyfriend Jeremy.  I'm not really an emotional person and I'm a bit of a pyscho-betch for almost any dude to handle. However, I found a quote that describes myself and my reasoning behind dating Jeremy and it goes something like this:

"Maybe some women are not meant to be tamed. 
Maybe they are supposed to run wild until they find someone - just as wild - to run with."

Perfect, right?
Jeremy is just as awesome as I believe my self to be and more importantly, just as psychotic.   
And for all those single laydeeeez (and men if you're reading this) out there, Valentine's Day doesn't have to be spent sulking in your single life sorrow... being single isn't a bad thing! 

Use Valentine's Day as a day to appreciate all that you love: your self, your family (pets included obvi), your friends, and above all, simply appreciating the life you live. 

{I hope ya'll have a great Valentine's Day!}

Go Stud Yourself.

It's no secret that studs are IN. I don't know about you, but I most certainly do not have the money to drop on a jacket/blouse/backfannypack/shorts/etc. that has an added $50 to the price because it has precious studs on it. Why these items are so expensive due to studs, I'll never know. It's not like they are freakin' diamonds. 

Recently, I found the perfect item to try and stud up... a military-style jacket. I haven't exactly thought about where I would like to stud on the jacket, but at least I have an item worth trying to stud on. And if I mess up, hey... it's too dark/camo-ey to even notice a difference if I pulled the studs out.

For beginners, try and find something in your closet that you never wear anymore and see if you can add a lil' somethin-somethin to it by studding the shit out of it! In my case,  that "something" would be an item balled up on my closet floor. Studding an item you never wear may just make it something you will LOVE to wear!

What you will need:

 {Item of your choice to stud}

 {Studs.. there are all types of studs.. it just kind of depends on the look you're going for}

Directions are as easy as...

1. Start by figuring out what pattern you want. Line up the stud and punch the spikes through.

2. Once you've done this, you will need something hard to press down the spikes. I used the end of tweezers. Push the spikes up into the back of the stud. This will prevent you from getting scratched while wearing your studded piece.

3. Once the stud is pressed down, the inside of the stud should look like a little 3-prong triangle or a 4-prong square, depending on which type of stud you are using. If you are using screw-on studs, use a sharp knife or scissors to poke a hole through the desired spot, stick the screw through, tighten the stud, and voila! And that is it! It's as easy as that!  Now, go crazy people.

Here are some photos to get you started on your studding project!

Socks or Sans Socks?

When it comes to one's outfit, socks usually play an insignificant role. 
This blog post is all about making your socks the star of your next outfit! 

Fall has finally arrived and it gets me so pumped because I can finally bust out my cute socks again. This time of year is special because while it is cold enough to wear socks everyday, it is still warm enough to show a pair of socks off against bare legs.

Below, I have posted some inspirational photos that feature how to wear both ankle socks, mid-calf socks, and tall socks with all types of shoes! 

 So, to answer my own question.. never sans socks from your outfit. 
Your socks need love too!
