Jeans were a gift from my mother.

This is the last edition of a three-part collaboration with Jodie’s Touch of Style and Sheela Writes. The idea was to showcase various ways of dressing with the colors red and gold. Also, though unintentional, it is a collaboration amongst mothers and daughters ❤️

The last of the series is to wear red and gold with another color.

This is also my second collaboration with Ettika.

It’s an online jewelry store perfect for the bohemian girl with a bit of an edge, based in one of my favorite places ever – Cali.

dsc_0263dsc_0261dsc_0258

I’ve recently become into chokers and other types of necklaces, so when the opportunity to wear one of Ettika’s presented itself I was more than happy to oblige.

It’s called the Lovely Loop Bolo Wrap in Pink and Gold.

I’m in love with its bright color and cool .

But if you’re someone who’s not into necklaces or chokers, then check out the other items Ettika has. Like rings, bracelets, earrings, and body jewelry.

I myself have been eyeing the Desert Ranch Bolo Wrap in Light Grey and Gold as well as the Age of Innocence Bracelet in White and Antique Silver.

Project Sister Act, created by Sheela Writes, is a collaboration amongst bloggers to prove that style is ageless.

This month our theme is RED.

I rented this dress for my stepbrother’s girlfriend’s Debutante Ball. My mother and I had never attended something so formal, so we figured that we’d have to bring out the big gun: Rent the Runway.

One of the most awesome places ever!

DSC_0464.jpg

 

This dress made me feel like such a princess!

I had never worn a gown up to that point so initially I was trotting around in those heels (which hurt like hell at the end of the night) and pulling up that skirt like I was walking in mud. It was a bit of a struggle.

But once I got the hang of it, I started twirling and swishing and whatever else it is you do in long dresses that put a huge smile on my face.

I admit that letting the dress go was both physically and emotionally painful, but that dress was way too expensive for this high schooler’s wallet. Not to also mention that the probability of having an event to wear it to was low. Actually, nonexistent.

dsc_0454dsc_0458

This goes to show that what you wear has an impact on how you feel and how you behave.

When I was at the ball my posture was on point throughout the night, I placed my hands gently on top of my lap when seated, and crossed my legs the Princess Diaries way (if you don’t know what I’m talking about then go watch that film, it’s the best). The dress made me feel beautiful, confident, and graceful.

It’s important to wear what makes you feel those things.

When you do, you feel like you can conquer the world.

Rock Out

dsc_0513dsc_0518

I have to admit that I’ve never been a fan of large headphones.

I always saw them chunky and unnecessarily large.

But after trying these, I have to say, they’re well worth the hype.

They’re incredibly comfortable to use, have great surround sound, and make me feel hella cool like some DJ at a rave.
