CityAmour bustier. CityAmour skirt. Vintage belt. shoes from Taiwan. Vintage jewelry. Oasap ring.

My very first day at FIDM's 3 Days of Fashion event in Los Angeles!!! I learned so many new things from these "workshops" they offer, they didn't seem like classes one bit. If classes are like this at FIDM all the time, forget NYU, sign me up for FIDM! (Just Kidding, NYU will always be my dream school <3) True story though- I actually drew something more advanced than a stick figure and it didn't look too bad.. i hope haha. Met two amazing fashionable people---> Marika & Maria!! (visit Maria's blog here) Above are a few pics I got to take (sorry for lack of pics, everything was moving so fast!) And yes, yes I am short. even when I am on my tippy toes. lol.

Pulled out this humongous lace dress out of my closet and decided to finally wear it. My mom got it when my family visited Japan, but she gave it to me when she realized the neck opening was about 2 feet wide. no joke. lol. Thank goodness for safety pins. :P Paired it with gold, brown, and black accessories to match, going for a girly/boho/vintage kinda look. Just recently got my double pearl ring in the mail yesterday c/o Oasap, and decided to throw that in with the rest of my arm candy as well. (: I have to say, I am LOVIN the ring :D I got so many compliments on both the ring, dress, and overall outfit at school today hehe *blushes :) Also got a message from a reader telling me how much she loved my style and blog, and it really made my day <3 Thank you Sarah Cebulski!! (: 
Also had a mini photoshoot all around my local park with my SUPER talented friend, Kaitlyn Gee. Like what you see here? She's got even more amazing photography on Instagram! Follow her @KaitlynLauren! <3
