Fishnets: On Trend and Fabulous

Now a couple years ago, I was completely against the 90’s grunge vibe but recently I have come to LOVE it. I’ve seen the fishnet grunge look all over and wasn’t sure how I wanted to pull it off. While browsing Pinterest I came across these two photos:

I used these for inspiration and went on my search for the perfect fishnets. Most places sell then for $10-$20…..For tights?! While I was at the Augusta Mall last time I went home from school I was just casually browsing and I found the perfect pair at this little store called Edge! They resembled the first picture almost to a tee and I knew these would be the best plus…..they were only $5.99! I had a friend from school (@so.tres on Instagram) ask to shoot me so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try out my 90’s grunge look interpretation. IT WAS A GREAT IDEA. He took amazing pictures but my outfit also turned out perfectly.

The tee shirt was a gift from my mom from a concert she went to with my sister (Free), the tights are from Edge ($5.99), and the boots are from Just Fab ($14.95 w/ shipping)! It was an amazing experience and showed me that you can make a super cute grunge look for not too much money. Hope y’all enjoyed this post! Keep a lookout for more.

Collars Make Me Holla

Ever since I was younger I’ve loved statement and Peter Pan collars. The more color the better am I right? The other day I was stuck in my room sick but I can’t ever just lay there unless I’m really dying so I starting DIYing (HA!). I love the Instagram account studiodiy and found this on their blog. A DONUT COLLAR. Me being an extreme Dunkin’ enthusiast was ecstatic to find this. 

So while laying in bed I decided to pull out my old paints and give it a go. My interpretation is not as adorable as theirs but it’s still super cute! I linked the webpage for it so if you guys wanna try it out too go ahead! This is my version of it. 

Hope you enjoy and try a DIY for yourself some day!

Iridescent-esque 

Lately I’ve been very obsessed with iridescent colors and clothing items. This gave me the idea for this adorable skirt! I’ve been seeing many see-through garments with this idea but I wanted to make mine a bit more fit-for-campus than some others I’d seen. I went to the Walmart down the street and found this awesome see-through iridescent fabric and used a gray woven fabric underneath. I zig-zag stitched them together (my surger is broken) and then this lovely skirt appeared! I also got this pattern from Walmart for $2.97 I believe. So I got this cute skirt for virtually $15! Perfect for the summer and super on trend.

Closet Organization: Spring Edition

Spring has sprung! At least in Georgia where it’s already in the 70’s in February. Today I came home from class and realized I needed to 1) fix my closet completely and 2) re-organize it for the spring/summer! I normally put the things I wear that season the most in the middle. So I’ll start from left to right on how I organized it. The first thing I have on the left is flannels and then sweaters/log sleeved knit items. I put them to the side because I might still use them for a cool evening or dinner event. I then have my long sleeve chiffon tops/wovens, short sleeve chiffon tops/wovens, and lastly short sleeve knits and wovens. These are all together because I wear them with pants or skirts year round. I next have my dresses and skirts since it is, of course, spring! Pants are next followed by sweaters, blazers, and vests. This is how I set up my wardrobe and I hope it helps you with yours!
