Met Gala 2014 Favorites

I have been slacking on this blog lately because I’ve have been so uninspired …until yesterday. The met gala is one of my favorite “fashion events” because it’s the only time I personally feel designers and celebrities show case the good stuff. The best pieces are saved for this event, & when it all comes together it turns into a true high fashion experience. Here are some of my faves. And maybe because I’m biased and I love Beyoncé, but she killed it. Her look this year worked so much better than last year, & Jay Z’s tux complemented her look very well.

Oh hai awesome.

As a journalism major I’m required to take every type of journalism course and at the moment I’m taking video journalism which involves alot of me filming on a giant camera, and hours of editing on adobe premier  Its funny to think just a few weeks ago I had no idea how to film or edit and now I’m a pro at it and have new appreciation for really good editing (especially in movies). I love this video because of the awesome editing, the clothing including, and also the girl in it who is one of my favorite youtubers right now ohhairclaire

Yay or No Way?: Sneaker Wedges

I remember first hearing about this trend last summer and thought nothing of it because I thought it was a trend that was going to leave as quickly as it arrived, however these sporty take on wedges are still here. I have given in and will have to say I’m really do like them. But are they too sporty to work in a young woman’s everyday wardrobe??? Comment down below if you think yay or no way?

Confession of a Shoeaholic

If your not part of the youtube fashion/beauty community then you’re probably not aware of what tags are, but their basically just a series of question that go around to each youtube guru. I’m not a youtube guru AT ALL so I dont know how I was tagged, but I havent had time to film but I really like this tag so I’m just gonna write about it instead.

1. Do you prefer heels or flats?- if I had to choose one to wear the rest of my life probably heels, cause I’m more comfortable being overdressed then under dressed for anything.
2. what are your go to shoes?- My doc martens, if I dont know which shoe to wear I wear those. They somehow just work with everything in my closet.
3. what is your favorite shoe trend at the moment?- My favorite shoe trend right now are really creative unique cool looking boots, both flat and heeled variations.
4. what is your least favorite shoe trend?- my least favorite are the UNIF shoes, they dont even look like shoes they look like costumes, and the platform sneaker. Just no.
5. what is your most expensive shoe?- my most expensive right now are my Jefferey Campbell black crochet litas which were actually on sale for $113.00 when I bought them. But I’m in the process of selling these cause I ordered the spiked ones literally an hour ago.
6. what are your most wanted pair of shoes?- The Steve Madden Madhouse Booties are sitting in my amazon.com wishlist just waiting for me, but they’re so pricey!
7. most embarrassing shoe story?- When I started wearing heels and started dating about my sophomore year of high school I went on a date with a very good looking guy and I was so nervous and a wore my brand new pair of VERY uncomfortable ankle boots that had 4 inch stiletto heels, and twisted my ankle walking in front of him. I twisted my ankle really badly too, it was just so bad lol.
8. pick a shoe and share a story?- When I was in the process of trying to find a pair of doc martens I was looking on ebay constantly, and my now ex-boyfriend who was pretty wealthy wanted to buy them for me but I didn’t let him. However a month later we broke up, and were not on good terms and he kept talking about how I would never get those shoes now because I wasn’t with him. But I promised myself I would get them to prove I didn’t need him, and I did and I still dont need him 🙂
9. how many shoes do you own?- Oh my, no idea. Half my shoes are here in my dorm, and the rest at home. And I’ve bought more shoes since being here so no clue.
10. when was the first time your wore heels?- Since I was like 3, I wore lipstick and heels like a boss. My mom’s friends were concerned lol.
11. how much do you usually spend on shoes?- a year ago I would’ve told you know more then $30 but now that I’m older I’m learning if I should invest in anything its shoes because the higher the price the better the quality is so recently I can justify spending about $30 to $120 on shoes
12. where are your favorite places to buy shoes?- DSW, Target, zooshoo.com, and nastygal.com
13. do you have a pair of shoes you regret buying?- I bought a pair of Jeffery Campbell tardy’s about a month ago from nastygal.com for $80 and they were originally $180 so I jumped on it, but about 2 weeks ago they were marked down even lower to $50. I really wish I waited, I like getting the best deal possible.
14. what are your favorite pair of shoes?- my favorite pair of shoes right now are a pair of ked like sneakers I got at target on clearance for $4.00 they’re so comfortable and I can just slide them on. I’m really lazy in the morning, shoes that dont involve me to tie them are just awesome lol

Fall Trends I’m Falling For

I havent done a fashion post in a while because nothing has really inspired me to do one. I’m not going to post okay pictures of girls who dress okay in okay clothing. However lately, as in fall 2012 the trends have been ON POINT. They are so fresh and so grungy but elegant and not crazy stupid will last very shortly trends, but trends we have seen before that have just got an upgrade. I’m obssessed with about 90% of what’s happening this fall.

1. Camoflauge/Military- I love this trend, this print somehow doesn’t scream “I watch Duck Dynasty” when you wear it right and instead screams “bad ass girl” to , and hey dont we all want to feel like that.

2. Oxblood/Wine Color- this isnt really a trend but to me I think everyone rediscovers how amazing and flattering this color is during the fall, its a really substitute for just black or dark blue, especially with pants!

3. Leather/Pleather Pleated Circle Skirts- I really hope this trend doesnt die cause its lovely and very simple but classy. Girly girls to tomboys can incorporate into any outfit. I hate skirts with a passion and even I bought one.

Boy Your Summer Fine

So I did this style series 2 summers ago and I so many people who loved it, so of course its become a thing on FNL, and the tradition continues. I have this obsession with mens fashions, I much rather style men then women anyday and thats where this whole idea came from. I just go on the interweb and pull my favorite pictures of super fashionable & STRAIGHT men. I’ve had a couple guys comment telling me how this has helped them become more creative with their style. Enjoy boys….and girls!

Style Crush:Miley Cyrus

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the serious style swag Miss Miley Cyrus has gained recently. Maybe its her new body, her reborn career, or her recent engagement but what ever it is this girl exudes the idagf attitude with her newly defined country/punk wardrobe. Her staple high bun and combat boots are definitely far from her alter ego Hannah Montana and I’ve been definitely been trying to find my Miley Cyrus alter ego now. Officially style obsessed.

Nails to die for & from!

The last thing I have to do is get my nails done. Now first let me explain I live in Texas, and prom night mights as well be a pageant down here every little detailed is looked out, including your nails. Everyone usually get boxy french tip acrylics nails but I want something a little different. The new trendy stiletto nails.
