Candy Stripes

It’s no secret I love novelty prints, but lately I’m starting to get into novelty shoes. I got a pair of see-through heart-printed oxfords (yes they are just as amazing as they sound) at Crossroads the other day, which will probably make an appearance in an outfit post in the near future.

I also got these holographic sandals from Crossroads which I love so much! There’s something about fun prints and footwear that makes me so happy! Speaking of making me happy, my mom and I just launched a lip balm to Drifter Organics. It’s called Smile Balm—because you can’t smile when you have chapped lips. You know you want it—especially with these chilly months AKA chapped lips season coming soon *wink.* I swear I have so much fun working on the branding for Drifter Organics. If you don’t have fun doing what you do, then what are you doing? We’re going to be selling at the Re:Make Festival this Saturday, the 1st, in SF if you’re in town!

Speaking of events, I’m co-hosting a Crossroads Customer Appreciation Party with Aimee and Kendall tonight! At their Market Street location in the Castro neighborhood! It’s from 8-10pm, so swing by, say hi, and get some shopping on if you’re in the area and free, will you? You can get the full details here.

You may remember my posting about Act Three‘s past two collections. Sarah, the designer, just launched the new Autumn Winter 2016 collection last week.

The inspiration this season is a ballet opera from the 1950s called “The Tales of Hoffmann.” In general, I gravitate towards playful and quirky rather than dark and serious, but I’m reaalllyyy feeling this collection. Really—yes yes yes. The collection is very much ballet inspired as well as pretty whimsical. The elegance these photographs exude is just beyond superb.

Pin it to win it

Pin it to win it

When I was in Seattle, I saw a political sign for a candidate running for lieutenant governor. The slogan read, “Yin it to win it” (Yin is his last name) and it’s kind of stuck with me since. When I was editing these pictures, I couldn’t stop thinking of my own pun “pin it to win it,” so pin it to win it is. Cheesy? Yes, but I’m a total cheeseball.

You know how I love color, so I was deeply disappointed when Urban Outfitters only had grey, black and a random cheetah print Herschel backpack in their store. Instead of ordering something more colorful online, I took this opportunity as a challenge to jazz up a simple grey backpack with pins. I never had a pin collection as a child, which I somewhat regret because it would be fun and nostalgic to look back at my old pins, but, at age 22, I’m well on my way to starting up my first pin collection. I have Valley Cruise Press and ban.do to thank for the start of a solid pin game—and my mom to thank for a pretty sweet fishtail braid.

I have to say, my favorite pin is the BFF emoji pin from Valley Cruise Press. I got a set of two: one for my mom and one for me. ARE WE SO TWEE IT MAKES YOU SICK? Valley Cruise Press just launched their Fall 2016 collection too, so some fresh new styles guys.

Around this time of the year, I’m influenced by the back to school season and dress more collegiate, which in my mind, translates to a little preppy. Being originally from the east coast, I feel like I always have prep in me—sometimes it makes its way into my outfits more prominently than usual.
