Motel + Betsey + Rebecca, perfect for a great party

Last night was my cousins Confirmation party and I haven't been to a family oriented party in a while so I was pretty stumped on what to wear............until I came across the perfect dress from Motel. I actually ended up with the dress for this party on accident! I had bought it with the intentions of wearing it for my birthday party last weekend but when I realized it would take about 2 weeks for the dress to ship, I needed to go buy myself an emergency dress last minute. To my surprise, 3 days after I bought a last minute dress that I ended up really liking, the Motel dress was dropped off at my job. I was going to return it until I realized I still didn't have a dress for last night! I didn't really want to wear a typical black dress or dark colors so it came at the right time. I paired the dress with my favorite pumps and my favorite bag and threw on a statement necklace to match. I also wore it with a new pair of earrings and a few rings but since this was a last minute style post I actually didn't get a chance to photograph them :(

Demi Lovato at MTV

A few weeks ago I was off to MTV for the Demi Lovato "Stay Strong" documentary screening and after show with Demi herself! It was a really exciting and emotional night but I had a great time. I've always looked up to Demi ever since we were around 15/16 years old and she's always been one of my style icons as well. I found her style incredible and unique for somebody around our young age back then and through the years even after everything she's gone through she's still kept up with her incredible style. I have a lot of respect for her and she is always an inspiration behind some of my outfits, especially the outfit this post is about. After thinking and brainstorming for a few days of what I was going to wear, I came across a picture on Tumblr of the pop princess herself wearing a fur vest, sequin leggings, spiked litas, and a pretty shirt and that's when it hit me! I had found my outfit. I had a vest similar to the one she had on, shoes similar to her litas, and I couldn't wait to put it all together. I hope you enjoy the outfit as much as myself and the director of her documentary did! Davi Russo, the genius director behind "Stay Strong" stopped me outside of MTV to photograph me because of my outfit, I was taken back by it and I am still in shock about it even a few weeks later.


My Version of Demis Outfit:

Vest - Forever 21

floral docs, leg warmers, and burgundy lips kind of saturday

Soooooooo today I was off from work and I decided to make it a mall day!(Post of everything I bought coming soon!) When I was younger I would just go to the mall to hang out in a Victorias Secret or Hollister sweatsuit and a pair of Uggs but my style has changed a lot in the past 6 years and the only time you'll find me in Uggs & a sweatsuit is at work, the gym, or if I'm sick. I really love the color black and when I do black i either do black from head to toe or black with small things that pop against it.

I love stripes, fur vests, and anything floral so it didn't hurt to pair them all together and anyway........the best time to wear a striped sweater IS ALL THE TIME!!! hahaha okay that was lame, sorry. I feel extremely comfortable in this outfit and I think that leg warmers go perfect for any situation and I love the way they look paired with the high waisted leggings and Docs! 

Vest - From the 90s, found it in my moms closet(hehehe)

High Waisted Nylon Leggings - American Apparel
Black Leg Warmers - American Apparel

Cross Necklace - Beyond Trends

What would life be without a little detail?

MY BABY. This is the GREATEST bag I'v ever owned. My parents gave it to me as a Christmas present and I am in love, it goes with everything and is perfect for almost every occasion. I recently took a less than 12 hours trip to Philly and I was able to fit everything I needed in it.

Let's play a little game called hair or vest?
