Trendy holiday gifts, animal print edition

27 Nov

Well folks, the holidays are upon us! While this is the most wonderful time of the year, we’ve all had our difficulty with finding the perfect gifts for those we love. A leading trend this year that has been seen on numerous runways and street wear is animal print. Designers for luxury and affordable brands alike have incorporated animal print into their garments and products, making this trend more popular than ever. I am a huge fan of this trend and have a lot of animal print clothing as well as accessories and products such as phone cases. If you know fashion forward women in your life who love animal print, I highly suggest you find items in this trend to gift to them this holiday season. As with all things fashion, there are some items that are expensive quality products, while other similar products can be found at more affordable price points depending on where you shop and who you are buying for.

This Tory Burch animal print hard shell phone case is incredibly fashionable and the color looks excellent with the print. It makes for a wonderful holiday gift and can be used year round due to the neutral color.

Victoria’s Secret apparel is great quality and they know how to attract their target market. This VS Sparkle Leopard Print top is an excellent choice for the fashionable young women in your life.

While Dolce & Gabbana may be out of many of our price ranges, this Leopard Print Neck Blouse can be purchased at Nordstrom for a more reasonable price and would be an elegant gift for someone special in your life.

How do you guys incorporate this trend into your looks?

Gobble ‘Til Ya Wobble!

Happy Thanksgiving weekend everybody! I hope you all spent it with loved ones and lots and lots of delicious food, I certainly did! This Thanksgiving was especially meaningful to me because last month my dad had intense surgery to remove the tumor that was surrounded by other organs that also had to be removed. We are so grateful that they got it in time and although he has a long recovery ahead, he is one tough cookie and is pulling through. Now lets get down to business, what did you guys make this year that is so yummy you have to share with me?! Thanks to my obsession with Pinterest, I made some adorable Turkey Cupcakes. Not only were they cute, but they were scrumptious as well.

After stuffing my face for a full day, I decided to work off the pounds with some Black Friday shopping, I mean, that counts as cardio..right?! My mom and I decided to skip the craziness at the mall and instead went to the outdoor shopping avenue near our home. I got incredibly great deals at VANS and bought some comfy jackets for this cold weather. We then went to Francesca’s boutique (which I LOVE by the way,) and I couldn’t believe the great deals that they had going on as well. I got a cute belted snow jacket for 40% off and of course couldn’t resist some scarf headbands and matching gloves. Did any of you go Black Friday shopping, what was your experience like?

Street Style, Fashion Forward

7 Nov

 

This is a picture of a friend of mine named Austin, who was visiting me in the city today. I have always loved her style and she is a great example of street wear trends. Street wear is about people creating their own looks and trends, which is why I chose to photograph Austin. She is 25 years old who just became a Doctor of Physical Therapy. Austin defined her style as one that is ever-changing and that can not be defined. Fashion blogs are a huge inspiration to her and she looks to her favorite bloggers, such as Emily Schuman, for new trends and inspirations to try. She considers her fashion sense a mix of preppy and feminine, which I agree with. When asked what she would define fashion as, she said “Whatever styles are currently popular or up and coming, including apparel, accessories and so on.”

 

Street Style, Hippie Chic

7 Nov

 

Street Style is a huge inspiration for me, from friends to strangers, street fashion is a huge part of the industry. This is Heidi, she is 21 years old and lives in Santa Cruz, California. Heidi is a nursing student, as well as a fashionista. I took this photo of her in Golden Gate Park in the city. What attracted me to her look was the youthfulness and uniqueness that came across in her ensemble. When I asked her how she would define her own style she said that she would consider herself a “modern, feminine, fashionable hippy,” a description I loved! She said that she loves creating her own looks and playing with accessories, as seen from her hip headband and bracelets. She said that in her opinion fashion means being able to express yourself through clothes and creating looks that make you feel confident.
