Baby is a city girl and LA is her kingdom.
$ THE FIT $
I love love love this outfit. It's super badass and the monochrome theme totally works through the entire fit. The outfit started with my cute new cleated sole boots and my checkered socks and just kind of grew from there. I found out I could stretch my fishnet socks all the way under my knee so I finally fulfilled my dream of cute sock layering lol. Love how it turned out. From there I picked out this Dimepiece shirt I got like 2 years ago on their online black Friday sale. I unfortunately cropped it alittle short so I paired it with some fishnets I cut for an edgy under shirt. Then I just topped it off with crushed velvet and fur! What else does a girl need?

Life has been so crazy lately. Awesome, but crazy. I almost don't know how to take it all in!
So to begin I got my first "official modeling job" ever which is best put into words as so freaking cool. I got to shoot for Tunnel Vision which is this DOPE online clothing store that sells vintage and other really really amazing clothing. The gal that makes the magic that is Tunnel Vision happen is Madeline Pendleton, the boss lady (along with her rad friends). It's safe to say she's the sweetest person alive. I want to thank her for asking me to shoot I had a blast. The exposure that gave me has led to me being asked to model for others and has also brought a lot of attention to my Instagram, my style, and then inevitably my blog!
Only 2 weeks later another very delightful thing occurred. If you didn't know I'm launching my clothing this next month! My first ever designs produced are these African print fishnet shorts I've been dreaming about making for about half a year now! They have finally come to life, Hell YEEE! *available for pre- order June 5th btw*. Anyway, one day last week My internship Rojas was having a shoot with The Fabulous Stains for the Stay Dripped event. I had some of my shorts at the shop and little did I know some of the girls had picked them out to shoot in. So I get on Instagram and see my friend tagged me in a photo. I follow the link & see my 2 favorite stains, Luna and Robyn, in MY shorts!! At first I was upset cause I didn't get any credit for it but I just told them and got the word spread to the other stains and everything was peachy. It was just so cool, seeing my shorts already appearing on Fashion Bloggers pages, giving me tons of exposure, and I hadn't even launched them yet!!
ALSO, I just got back from EDC!! The infamous Electric Daisy Carnival, WOW. It was my first rave and I've never experienced anything like it. It was definitely an experience, one of the best ever. The overwhelming energy and blaring bass from the DJ's brought me into a whole new world. I loved it to say the very least. It all came together last minute after thinking for weeks I wasn't going. I was going to sell my ticket because my BF had to sell his ticket to pay for school (UGH, stupid grown up life decisions you have to make) but luckily my girl Karyn hit me up to go with her and her group of friends. I was sketched at first to go with a group I didn't know at all, I felt like EDC should be something I go to with my close friends, none of which were going :( BUT, it ended up being awesome!! Everyone in the group was super nice, we all took care of each other, vibed, and had a kick ass time! Now I have some new friends out of it too! This past weekend was def one to remember.
Here's a picture of my shorts available soon as well as some pics of the Lovely stains Luna and Robyn wearing them!
