It's Been A Few Days

Sooo, hey. I've solved the mysterious case of the painful Jesus shoes! I just needed to adjust them. Haha! Once I figured that out I wore them the rest of the week, :D

Guess what movie I just saw?!

Confessions Of A Shopaholic

It was sooo good. I thought maybe it was going to be stupid or lame but it was actually seriously cute. Some of the outfits they put on "Rebecca Bloomwood" a.k.a. Isla Fisher, were pretty far fetched. I mean, come on!--furry boots, a satin dress, a vintage belt, a HUGE white bag, and a fur shrug... what the heck. Nooo. A hugeee NONO. But anyways, it was a good movie, and I can't wait until it goes on DVD, so I can watch the stylist commentaries and stuff! XD

Speaking of Great Fashion Movies,[this is cliche] The Devil Wears Prada is quite the stunner. And if you're like me the highlights of that movie were the clothes. I mean, did you see that Chanel pearl necklace, and the Gucci boots?!

Oh yeahhh, and Marie Antoinette with Kirsten Dunst. It's not modern fashion at all, but it was just beautiful to see all the outfits. I mean the silhouettes, colors, and fabrics were mesmerizing. AGH. I could go on for days. Trust me, I've seen that movie about 27 times. And since there is only like 15 lines in the entire movie, I probably know the script, ahaha. I love you Sofia Coppola.

Speaking of her, did you know that she had like a Marie Antoinette-inspired store in Japan! I saw these pictures of it, it was champagne pink with like cupcakes and sparkles. That's like all my favorite stuff in one place!

Oh, yeah and Mahogany with Diana Ross. Dang, I hope that happens to me. Somebody saw that she had talent, believed, and then invested in her. And DANGGG, she was fly.

It Was A Cute Day ! :]

Hellooo. I have exciting news! So I mentioned in the first ever issue of Delish Kicks how I've never had a pair of gladiator sandals or "Jesus shoes." Haha. So yesterday I was just browsing shops with my mom and sister, and we decided to go into Payless. There on the bottom row of the 6 1/2 section, lay a black leather pair for $9 ! I was like "HOLY CRAP, thank you Jesus!" Hahaha. I was soooo excited. Of course, I bought them! They are the cutest things ever. Instead of wrapping like flip-flops, there is a strip of leather that goes around the toe and wraps around the ankle. Flyyy ! So I had to come up with this cute "indie-rock" outfit to go with them. :]

This isn't the exact outfit, but it's pretty close. The brands are different, but the shapes and colors are about right. :D

Delish Kicks - 1

Agh, so this morning about 3 seconds ago I checked, and they were spotlighting the cutest shoes ever, which inspired me to do a weekly thing about shoes. It's a MAJOR part of fashion, so why not do a segment on them?!

Delish Kicks:


Startas Suede & Rubber Shoe: The blue is just wayyy too cute. :]


Christian Louboutin Bilbao- Cut Out Patent Wedge: Perfect winter to spring transition shoe.


Jimmy Choo Maui Animal Thong: Oh, lordy, these are wayy to hot. I've yet to purchase a pair of of thong sandals! But I'm not gonna start off with these. Haha. $175? Uhh, not for my first pair. XD

Designers: My Style

Not a complete list. Using these famous designers is an easy way to explain my style, based on the designers' styles.

Karl Lagerfeld: Why wouldn't I love the head designer of Chanel? He's completely innovative, and a bit lavish with his spending, displays, and shows.. but you can't help but drool in awe of it.

Marc Jacobs: He's edgy, but classic. And me and my friend think he has a little bit of an industrial style. He has a nice urban flair, but always classy.

Isaac Mizrahi: He's just so cool. He seems so approachable. And I love the fact that he did a line for GO International for Target. His clothes are so cute but funky and the shoes he did for Target...AGH, to die for.

Oscar de la Renta: My friend has me hooked on him. She told me about his gowns that she was obsessed with. I looked him up and now I am hooked. He designed this beautiful silver/gray floor lenghth gown. I wish it were mine. Haha.

Christian Lacroix: His gowns are gorgeoussssss. They have this amazing vintage, couture vibe.

Betsey Johnson: I feel really valley-girl-ish for saying it. I've admired her for as long as I can remember. She just does what she wants and doesn't give a crap what anyone else thinks. She can be really wild, and her mini dresses make me foam at the mouth.

Diane Von Furstenberg: Let me start by saying that her last name is a pain in the booty to type out. Secondly, I was watching a fashion show from about 2 years ago of her spring line. Oh, lordy. I know her wrap dresses are the "shiz" or whatever but this was a floor-length white gown with huge aqua, green, and red flowers. Or atleast I think that's how it looked. Ahaha. It was just breath-taking.

The New Guy:

Jason Wu: I actually did love the gown he designed for Michelle Obama for the Inaguration balls.
Some critics complained about the little rosie-thingies all over it. I didn't care. She looked amazing.

I'm new here.

Well, hi! This is my very first post on my very first fashion blog. To be honest, I'm really nervous about who will look at it, how many people will look at it, how well it is written, people's criticism...blehh. So be nice to me, it's my first go at this. :]

So basically, I'm just trying to get my foot into the door of fashion. It's something I fell in love with at a very young age. And ever since then I can't stop thinking, breathing, or eating fashion. Yes, I am young but I would like to think that I know alot about the fashion industry. And whatever I don't know I would really love to learn.

My dream is that this blog will help me plan out my ideas, plans, and future into fashion. Or atleast help me to take my mind off of school, or whatever else.

My style is really different. I can be on top of trends at times, but other times I can pull an outfit idea out of thin air. It could be four or five pieces you would never think would go together.
