Pink Things

I made this sheer, ruffled top a few days ago out of some polka dot fabric and gathered trim. I layered it over a graphic tee shirt I bought in Tokyo. I really like how the two pieces work together.

These super cute diamond-print socks were sent to me from Sock It to Me, a super-cute sock company based in Portland, Oregon. I'll be wearing more of their adorable socks in my next few posts!

Orange + Blue

I planned this outfit around this dress I recently thrifted. I've just recently gotten back into thrifting, and I've found some really awesome pieces. I layered my clear vinyl harness by Gnat Brilmyer over the top; you can buy one on Etsy. It was given to me by my best friend Dori. Wearing a harness is like wearing a belt and a necklace at the same time; I love how this piece can totally transform a garment. 

I'm also sporting my new Kenzo bag in this look. It's my latest and greatest Ebay find, and I got an awesome deal on it! Kenzo is probably my favorite brand right now. All of their pieces have great prints and patterns, complimented by edgy details, like the zippers and snaps on the bag.

The lip gloss I'm wearing is a cheap one I found at a beauty supply store. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect blue lipstick, ever since my favorite shade of the MAC Pro Paint-stick was discontinued. Does anyone know of any good brands to try? I'm looking for a light blue, super matte lipstick.

Gerlan Jeans

 I recently wore this outfit to do some thrift shopping and visit the art museum in Nashville. (I accidentally left my museum sticker on my jacket!) This Gerlan Jeans jacket is included in my Fall/Winter personal style moodboard (below). I've recently fallen in love with the brand-- so many amazing prints and unusual silhouettes. My top is an old piece from Forever 21, and my bike shorts are from Academy Sports and Outdoors. My pink necklace and bracelet are some jewelry samples I'm currently developing. My "Selfie" necklace is from a boutique in San Diego, and my black and white bracelet is from Anthropologie. The hand cursor earrings are from MariniFINI on Etsy, and the eyeball rings are from BuriedDiamond on Etsy.

I made this fall/winter moodboard to organize some of my current personal style thoughts. I'm already so excited to wear faux fur this winter, especially brightly colored faux furs! I'm also very inspired by the F/W 2014 Marc by Marc Jacobs collection, Gerlan Jeans, and Nasir Mazhar. I like colorful sportswear made out of unusual textures and materials. I'm planning to order a Print All Over Me jumpsuit for the fall, but I haven't figured out a textile design for it yet.

Summer Days

I found this top at a boutique in Hong Kong in June. It's by the brand Mini Cream. The garment can be worn like this or upside-down. It's symmetrical, so both the top and the bottom have a neckline and snaps- definitely a very unique piece! It's not quite long enough to be a dress, so I layered it over a pair of black bike shorts.
I styled the top and bike shorts with a pair of platform Prada shoes I recently scored at UAL, a discount designer store in Nashville. I'm also wearing a headband I recently made out with some Perler bead shapes and rhinestones, as well as a corsage I made with a mini Croc shoe.
My "Zoe" signature name necklace was a gift from Snake and Fawn. I sent them a picture of my signature, and they made it into a necklace! It's very beautiful, and it's a great piece to layer with other necklaces!
