rain, rain don't go away

beanie + tights from Target, tank top + shoes by Unif, leather jacket from Urban Outfitters

Just a little outfit post to tide you over. So glad it's finally cold in California, and by cold I mean below 70 degrees. San Francisco trip on Monday for my first big photo shoot in a long time.

-Early meeting at work. (Pullover by Wildfox, beanie from Target)
-Carving pumpkins with my bean.
-Tate and Violet pumpkin.
-Obsessed with my Dimepiece pullover.
-Violet Harmon for Halloween. Halloween wasn't perfect but it wasn't horrible. Either way I miss it already. (Cardigan & shirt & leggings from Target, dress from Free People)
-It was 'wear your costume to work day' in Ashlee world but I made it more Ashlee appropriate.
-Casting call day at work. (Beanie from Target, crop top from American Apparel, skirt by Unif)
-Last minute photo shoot with Paul Beattie. The photos are for a submission so they probably won't be posted any time soon but I think they'll be worth the wait.
-Peppermint mochas are the best part about holiday time. The 'Gwen' skirt is one of the best purchases I've ever made. (Tank top & skirt by Unif)

I hope everyone's week was perfectly spooky.

Happy Halloween!

It's officially my favorite day of the year. 
It's currently perfectly overcast outside and I'm drinking pumpkin coffee while flipping back and forth between all the perfect horror/Halloween movies on tv right now. There is almost nothing else in the world that makes me happier than Halloween. Although it's always hard for me to fully appreciate today because within a matter of hours today will be over and I'll have to wait another year.  I'm about to start my American Horror Story marathon to pre-game for tonight. I'm already wearing my Violet outfit (costume). The photos above are from Saturday night. If you don't know who I went as then get off my blog. I went bar hopping and it actually ended up being really fun. As of right now I have no idea what I'm doing tonight. I can only hope it lives up to last year. Whatever I end up doing, I look forward to no one understanding who I'm supposed to be. Pictures of my second costume will be posted soon! 

~May all your dreams come true this Halloween~

A review of my week (top + from right to left):

-Thrifting for costumes: Jacket, shirt, & shoes by UNIF + jeans from Urban Outfitters.
-Costume shopping part 2 in my: thrifted crushed velvet dress, beanie from Target, shoes by UNIF
-Rediscovered my Betsey Johnson sweater dress after it spent the last 3 years buried in my closet.
-Selfie at work: Dress by Evil Twin, shoes by UNIF.
-Halloween part 1. I'll be posting more photos from my Saturday night on Halloween. Had to save something for the day of. Cliche prom dress from Forever 21, tiara from Previews, blood harvested from every boy who tried to hit on me that night.

I can't believe the best month of the year is almost over. I've been cherishing every second. I'm going to spend the next 2 days carving pumpkins, watching horror movies, and putting the finishing touches on my second costume.

paranormal ramblings + Evan Peters' butt

beanie from Target, shirt by Unif, flannel + jeans from Urban Outfitters

Thursday night I went to see Paranormal Activity 4. I have gone to every movie's first showing (except for the first one because it didn't start playing in my city until after it's original release date no judging). It's probably my favorite horror movie franchise and I'm not even sorry about it. I have a thing for ghosts and demons and stuff ok? Also the fact they throw a really funny (jewish?) boy in every movie that I fall in love with. My only complaint is that the 4th movie just wasn't scary enough. I do like how they tied everything in though. If you're a fan of the series then I suggest you go see it but you're not really missing anything that hasn't already been done. Although I'm kind of glad I took the Kinect out of my room last week.

The Vandelles 'Miles Away' Official Music Video

As you may or may not know a couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with Claude Cardenas of Stagnant Cult on a video that was to be a part of his 'Daydream' series. Video work had been something I wanted to experiment with for a while so when I was given the opportunity of course I was thrilled. The video was finished and released a week later and I was so happy with the outcome. Anyways the video featured a song called 'Miles Away' by the band The Vandelles. Somehow the band came across the video and loved it so much they decided to make it the official video for 'Miles Away' and it was officially released yesterday! It's really crazy to me that this little video that was basically made for fun turned in to an official music video. You can check out The Vandelles here: Make sure to hit like and send them all your love!

S&M Princess

dress & shoes by UNIF
leather jacket from Urban Outfitters (3 years ago, it's time for an upgrade)

"You just had to be a princess today..."

Today I ran necessary errands and ended up with some not so necessary items. Most importantly I got my hands on my first special effects make up items for my kit. I played around with them today and I'm really excited to perfect my ideas by Halloween.

I wish I'd been a prom queen fighting for the title.

So as you may or may not know, my 21st birthday is in 3 days. I guess it's one of those birthdays where you plan out how you'll celebrate it for your whole life. Well at least that's the case with me. When I was a teenager I always imagined having some extravagant 16th birthday party (thanks MTV) but of course that never happened. I didn't even have a birthday party. I don't think I even did anything to celebrate it unless you count getting my license. The point is I feel like this is the last birthday that's a 'big deal' and for once I want to make it memorable.

♡ photo update ♡

These are all from the last 2 weeks or so I believe. I have completely lost track of time because I've had so much happening lately. I really love where my life is going right now. I'm keeping as busy as possible doing what I love while putting all my time and energy toward achieving my goals and I know it will all pay off. This summer will be full of big changes and accomplishments. I finally feel like I'm on the right track.

rainbow sherbet


jacket & pants from Urban Outfitters, crop top from American Apparel, shoes by UNIF, necklaces from my childhood & my mom's jewelry box, pins from Disneyland/thrifted, sunglasses from Previews

 After I wash my hair, since it still contains a fair amount of orange, it ends up looking like sherbet and when I wear it in a bun I feel like an ice cream cone. Not necessarily a bad thing. I wore this outfit a couple days ago but I loved it so better late than never. I felt so cute I wore it 2 days in a row (oops). In my defense it was mostly to take advantage of the perfect cold weather. I hate dressing for warm weather. I just really don't like when my arms and legs are visible, weird I know. Anyways I think I've won the universe's worst blogger award. I have a shoot today but afterwards I am coming home and working on a few new posts. I've actually been busy kids, neat huh?

Last night I went to an advanced screening of the movie Brave. It was pretty cute but I definitely don't think it lived up to all the hype it's getting. If you want to have that 'oh my god I miss Disneyland' feel good feeling then it'd probably be worth your money but it ain't no Tangled.

So after contemplating it for about 6 months, yesterday I decided to go out and buy a hula hoop. Basically it's my new favorite activity. I've been trying to find new ways to exercise that don't make me feel like I'm exercising and I think I've found my solution. I might try out a hula hooping class over the summer. Next I want to start taking trapeze classes. It's something I've wanted to do forever but never looked in to classes. They're pretty reasonably priced for a weekly class and the place the classes are held at is about an hour away. Super determined to start going, if not over the summer then definitely taking myself for my birthday in September.

So ready for the weekend. Spent this week going from red head to pink head. I did a re-bleach and dye last night to get rid of some of the orange left in my bangs and it was a success so new pictures soon. Currently trying to decide on an outfit. I'm so bored with my wardrobe and I always feel like I'm wearing the same thing over and over. Anyways here's an update!

♡recently: photo update♡

Had a lazy whatever day today. Lots of coffee, bubble gum, and magazines in bed. I was going to make another video for you guys but I wasn't feelin it so expect one tomorrow! Here's something new I plan on doing every week, my week through photos. I figure it's the best way to catch everyone up on what I've been up to! Also I apologize for the lack of updates lately. I've been feeling so uninspired, which is the absolute worst.

Inspiration: Dolores Haze

Dolores Haze is probably my biggest source of inspiration, which is no secret if you've happened to notice my Lolita tattoo. So since I'm doing a Lolita inspired photo shoot tomorrow I thought this post was appropriate. I did a Lolita shoot 2 years ago when I first started modeling but it wasn't my concept so I didn't get to have a lot of input. This time around I have all the necessary props and clothing, as well as a great location and amazing photographer who is just as excited to do this as I am! This will be the perfect farewell to my red hair. It's safe to say I'll be watching both movies before I go to bed.
