Can I even call this a “crush” without it being misconstrued for some sort of child objectification? Please, anyone reading, don’t be alarmed; I merely just mean I’m crushing on this child’s style.
I’ve spent the evening listening to Willow Smith and perusing her Tumblr and InstaGram and I just have to say; she is the coolest F-ing 11 year old I’ve ever seen! and how can she not be, with such exceptionally cool parents? I almost feel bad for being sartorially inspired by a child of that age, but you know what? I don’t care. And whether it’s her own personality or a stylist, I don’t care; this is STYLE and one that I love.
And even cooler? After her smash hit “Whip my hair back and forth” came and went, Willow cut her hair, and her loving and endearing parents supported her whole heartedly. Cool parents=cool kids.
Willow’s style staples seem to be very similar to my own; combat style boots, oversized tee shirts, a never ending supply of denim cut offs, and ofcourse, some studs and spikes. Also, I’m incredibly envious of her blazer/jacket collection. And her hats. I’m clearly pretty upset over losing three fedoras in the past year.
Green tea Frappucino? Me too, girl, ME TOO.
What do you think of young Willow Smith’s style? Are you inspired? If so, how do you feel being touched and inspired by such a young member of the world?
Now, I leave you with one of Willow’s ADORABLE gifs, found on her Tumblr:
I woke up to a chilly day, comparatively speaking to yesterday’s 88 degrees. I decided to take advantage and don this sweater I found in a pile of my father’s “too small” clothes. Apparently, YES, this sweater is a men’s. Maybe my dad was just a hipster in the 80’s, I don’t know. But, I knew it had the perfect colors and adorable print to mix with my previously white dress. Previously white? Yea, this little city dweller did her laundry and accidentally threw in this perfectly white dress with a red towel with some jeans. I’m planning on bleaching it back to it’s pristine shade, but for now enjoying the subtle spring hue.
Did you know I have glasses? These aren’t your quintessential hipster glasses, they’re my prescription I’m supposed to wear while reading and driving. I mostly don’t while driving, but since a recent excursion to the library on a sick day I picked up this travel book on Costa Rica and have been doing my research for next week.
Shenae Grimes is the epitome of a California beauty. He style is effortlessly cool, with a slight tinge of edge, and a TON of her fun personality. Seriously, I feel we would get along so well if we ever had the opportunity to hang out in real life! Also, I’m starting to plan a trip to LA for next month, and her style is the perfect inspiration!
That smile, her goofiness, laid back chic….she’s everything I wish I could be in California!

Now that that’s over! You may have read that I recently moved and am now living with three other, fashion fun and fierce, lovely ladies. We’re all fairly new to the apartment so we went on and threw ourselves a little party inviting more fashionable people’s around for a night of debauchery and many things I don’t remember.
I’ve legitimately already worn this outfit three times. Begging my roommate to take photos of it and he always refused, so I’d wear it again. Why not? It’s cute, comfortable, warm…It’s my perfect fall uniform! So, in lieu of football being on ALL day, I was able to strike a deal in exchange of photos for the television rights.
Say What? tunic sweater
DIY skirt I made in High School
Target Over The Knee knit socks
Aldo boots (old)
R&Em gifted bag
I made this skirt, and a matching vest, straight out of high school. I have never attended a private school but I sometimes ponder how things would have played out differently if I had. Would it have hindered my sartorial experimentation, or would it have challenged me and forced me to hone in on proper accessorizing?
In present times, though, my only problem is that I’m not currently in school. I miss education, learning, and challenging myself with projects and my high aspirations for good grades. Who knows, hopefully I can go back to school someday but for now I’ll keep wearing my burgundy plaid skirt and working my dream in the fashion industry.
If you haven’t noticed by now my style is a little out there; influenced by a more rock’n’roll culture (as well as classic glamour-yay versatility!). All of my girl crushes have something unique to their edgy style. Now, normally I do other bloggers, but today’s girl style crush is a singer and performer who goes by the name of Porcelain Black.
Real name Alaina Beaton has been a long time coming to the culture scene, starting out as a cliche “scene girl” but hey, we all went through that phase, right?
Now, she’s figured out one hair style (two colors) to stick with that makes her memorable. And besides her gorgeous tresses, this girl has tattoos, killer style, and not to mention a rockin’ BF (Bam Margera). Let’s look back at my favorite, inspiring looks of hers:
She is the definition of Glam-rock in sky high heels, black and metal, and just the right amount of sheer. She is everything I aspire to be sartorially, if only hot pants were a less frowned upon form of public clothing.
