FROM MIXED DRINKS TO TECHNO BEATS

July 17, 2011

{neon-john mayer}
thrifted neon button up, h&m suede/leather skirt, f21 black chandelier necklace, 
nine west ankle buckle black wedges, cornflower blue betsey johnson purse

This has been the busy bustling summer I've always wanted to have. With a fashion internship with Mélange Productions, a part-time job at the local childcare near campus, and summer courses, I've hardly had time to enjoy the serene beauty of doing nothing under the hazy dazy summer sun. But I'm definitely not complaining, I love the feeling of utter exhaustion at the end of the day, knowing I'm actually doing something with my life, especially with it being things I truly love.

To go along with the bustling and hustling summer I'm having, I went for a sort of bold city lights feel with my outfit and experimented a little with colorblocking. I'm super loving the clash of neon and leather with the accentuated softness of the cornflower blue and the suede panels. I am still freaking out about my new amazing Nine West ankle buckle wedges that I picked up from Buffalos Exchange for $18, a fraction of the retail price of $90. When I first laid eyes on these puppies, the reasonable part of my brain thought to myself, "do I really need another pair of black shoes? I have so many pairs at home already." And then the more awesome part of my brain thought, "ankle buckle--->ankle monitor--->Lindsey Lohan--->Mean Girls--->--->baby prostitutes--->awesome--->got to have them," and then I was completely sold. My train of thought is rad, huh?

Hi Anisa! What an amazing style! The color of your blouse is stunning and those shoes are WOW! Plus I need to borrow your bag :-)..

And about relationships..yeah, I've been severely heartbroken twice and it hurts like crazy but I seemed to just get back into being hopeful again. xoxoxoxo

Castle Fashion said...

That's an awesome deal for those wedges [High five] And I love the not so obvious color blocking. A lot of fashion bloggers have just been wearing orange pants and red tops; this is kind of a new twist :D

I wish I had more to do with my summer. I've been working and just planning out for the year. You sound like you have a lot of awesome stuff going on!
