Bells and Lace

One of my biggest wardrobe flaws is this: I never ever get anything hemmed. I’ve only ever gotten 3 things hemmed as an adult: two pairs of jeans and one gown I wore to a wedding last year. Honestly, I regret hemming the jeans, it changes the whole shape and look, so I’m really hesitant to ever hem anything. However… these velvet bells… they could stand to see a least a centimeter go I think.

These velvet bells were part of my holiday wardrobe last year, AND this year. I love that they’re still in style. Truth be told, they’re so comfortable and flattering I’d wear them even if they weren’t. Follow your own trends, I say! I wore this exact look to my boyfriend’s company’s holiday party this year. He works at a gym so I was like what’s the dress code? He gave the usual guy answer, “just wear whatever you want.” As I expected, some people were dressed up and others literally came right from the gym, so I thought this was a good middle ground look. Not TOO fancy, but festive none the less.

See what I’m saying about these pants being a hair too long? I feel like clothing companies do not make clothes for the average sized human being. Like yeah I get it.. some girls are 5’9 and 110 pounds… but hi, not me. It’d be nice if everyone made clothes for petite lil ladies like myself, and KUDOS to brands that do!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. It’s so hard to get motivated to go out and shoot when it’s legit freezing outside. ;]

Day to Night with Closet London

A couple weeks ago (yes, a couple… I am so bad at blogging right now! Yikes!) I showed you guys how I styled this full skirt from Closet London for a day time look. Today I’ll show you guys how to switch it up for a night on the town by just swapping out a few pieces.

I switched out my lace up sandals for some sky high platforms, changed into a crop top, and added a bag with a little more attitude to bring this skirt from day to night. This is the last post from me with light hair! Gasp. I must say though… everyone seems to like me with darker locks. It feels a little bit more… “me.” Like throwback Rachel, if you will. You’ll see. :]

Remember my beloved pockets? Seriously. I love them. I’m a little bit sad that the blog posts are going to feature more layers soon. As in like…. the next thing I post. WAH. I love fall but it’s been a pretty cold one already, right?
