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.

♡ weekend review + recently acquired ♡

Photography by Danny Fung & make up/hair/styling by me

shirt: American Apparel, shorts: Forever 21, belt: Target

A couple shots from the photo shoot I did with Danny Fung on Friday. Danny and I always have a great time shooting together and he is definitely one of my favorite Sacramento photographers. His use of natural light is amazing! Check out more of his work here: www.dannyfungphotography.com! I'll be posting more from our shoot together this week. We're also currently in the process of putting together an underwater mermaid photo shoot which I could not be more thrilled about. Please ignore the massive amount of roots on my head, I'm letting my hair fade/grow out as much as possible before I dye it pink. To be honest though I've always liked the grown out roots look.

my weekend in hell

shirt: Unif/my best friend's closet, flannel & shorts: Urban, belt: Target, sunglasses: Previews (This store in downtown Sacramento that's half costume shop, half thrift store, I always find the best stuff there.) I also had on creepers but I didn't get any full body pictures.

My weekend was super uneventful which is almost never the case. This is what I wore Sunday out to lunch for my best friend's birthday. I have been so excited over those glasses ever since I bought them. Neon and cat eye heaven. Forever channeling Rose McGowan in Doom Generation (which I still haven't watched but am obsessed with her look any way). Me and my two best friends each have this shirt but mine is no longer in my possession. I won't go in to detail as to why I don't have it because it's a really frustrating situation but it's been missing for nearly a year and I miss it. This is one of my favorite shirts ever so whenever my friend lets me borrow his I wear the crap out of it. Which is why I ended up wearing it on Saturday too.

Closet Case

Check out this little Q&A feature I did for a fellow blogger's blog! This was so much fun to do and Erin (owner of the blog) was incredibly sweet. Would love to do more stuff like this in the future.

Take a look:

Spending my Friday night experimenting with new make up tutorials, cleaning make up brushes, and painting my nails while eating popcorn and watching Enchanted. Figuring out a way to get back to Disneyland by next month.

spooky mermaid

flower crown made by me, dress: American Apparel, jacket & shoes: Urban Outfitters, studded bracelet: thrifted, pins: Disneyland/thrifted

Living life like a Disney princess. This dress is probably one of my all time favorite pieces. Every time I wear it I feel like a princess. Just looking at it gives me a ton of inspiration so I've had it hanging up in my room where I can always see it. Pastels make my heart swoon. Today I finally bought the shoes of my dreams. I have been drooling over them for months now and I scored them for 50% off. A match made in heaven. Kept walking past mirrors and almost cried every time I saw them on my feet. I don't remember the last time I was this excited over a pair of shoes. Also picked up Pink Tea and Full of Joy blushes from MAC's new Tres Cheek collection. Possibly going to do a separate post about those later if anyone's interested? I'm really diggin experimenting with blushes right now.
