Trying to blend in but somehow always standing out. I never fit into the cookie cutter setting around me. I was destined for something other then the norm, I was destined for greatness. The day i realized standing out wasn't something to be ashamed of was the day I started my journey.
I'm currently on spring break and am more than happy about it because school was tiring me out and finals kicked. my. ass.
I plan on staying productive during my break, focusing on my line development and perfecting my sewing. I finally have a place to sew so it's time to get down to business. THE HUSTLE NEVER STOPS. Even know I'm going to stay focused don't doubt that I'm going to take a well deserved vacation. I need it. I have a pretty much free stay at a hotel suite in Palm springs so I'm trying to get a group together to relax, turn up, and just have some fun.
I started out my break by going to Connected fest. It's a fashion festival presented by The Well that brings together fashion + music + art + community. It was so fun! and I scored some seriously dope stuff!! and saw some pretty dope people. And I had pizza, thumbs up all around I even ran into Pia Mia! Random story about her: I found this really cute vintage vest at connected, wheat leather in the front and stretch cotton in the back. I put it down for a sec to look at the rest of the clothes and when I came back to it guess who was purchasing it? Yes, Pia. "You mad?" Hell yeah I'm mad! but it'll look cute on that little fashion killa.

Anyways, speaking of connected fest, that's where I got half of my outfit! It's a new age army girl look. The Halter I got from The Cobra Shop's booth at connected. The colors are what got me, so funky and they gave the camouflage a refreshing look. Although I've loved camo forever, the trending of it kind of played it out for me so I was happy to find this. The skirt is the black pvc circle skirt from American apparel. I'm just wearing a plain black bandage skirt I got years ago underneath. I've wanted a skirt like this forever and I was lucky enough to score it cheap at the factory! I still want it in pretty much every other color. It's perfect for layering over dresses or just pairing with some shorts or a skirt. I want the completely clear one so when I wear patterns underneath they'll completely show through. The shoes are from YRU. I got them from The Well's booth at connected for only $35!! (Thanks Alex) They are black platform sneakers with quilt detailing and hiking boot laces. Can you say badass?

I also wanted to add this little selfie I took wearing this outfit because I was wearing my clueless feather choker from The Cobra Snake! It wasn't showing up well in my photos cause we just did a quick little "Iphone Photoshoot" lol. It was just for fun at first but I ended up liking the photos. It just looked like I had something on my neck so it didn't make it into the post. But trust, it made the outfit.
LISTEN TO THIS!
