Coven Party 2k13

shirt by Wildfox (circa 2010)
skirt from American Apparel
cardigan from UO 

So as you all (should) know, last night was the premiere of American Horror Story: Coven. It should be clear by now I have a true, undying love for this show and the fact that this season's theme is Coven has made the show even more important to me. I have been so fascinated by witches and witchcraft since I was young. I was a witch every year for Halloween and I was so sure that one day I could become a real witch. Update: it still hasn't happened...YET. So when one of my friends asked if I'd like to do something for premiere night, of course I said yes. I've had my themed outfit picked out for weeks and I decided to make 'coven cookies' with 'blood cocoa' (hot chocolate with red food coloring).

Wild for the Night

22. Best friends in a hotel suite. Bottomless mimosas. Candy bracelets and unicorn lollipops. A haze of neon and glitter. Harry Styles playing the role of Alien. Flashing strangers on the streets below. And we danced all night to the Best Song Ever.

Spring break, spring break, spring break forever.

c'mon I know you like little girls

I feel like my nymphet-ness has been on point this summer. Strawberry blonde, tan skin, the shortest shorts, and converse. This is the first Summer I'm actually proud to show off my body. So if I want to wear booty shorts in Disneyland then I'm gonna do it.

While I was in Newport I went to 'Brandy Melville' for the first time. It was an overwhelming experience to say the least. Basically it's one tiny store with hundreds of cute completely affordable clothing items. It has an American Apparel vibe only with Forever 21 prices. I think all the tops were under $25. The one I'm wearing in the photo above was only $12! It's my new favorite top. I bought it because it reminded me of something Buffy Summers would wear. If there's a store near you I definitely suggest you check it out! There's also an online store but it doesn't have nearly as much stuff as in store.

Willow Rosenberg

dress by Unif + crop top from American Apparel

I've been watching a lot of Buffy lately (and by a lot I mean the entire series twice) so it's pretty obvious that Willow Rosenberg would become my style icon at some point. I originally bought this dress only because it reminded me of the dress Willow wore in the pilot episode. Clearly I've modified that outfit to make it more Ashlee but I feel like I achieved a 90's vibe. Now if I could only achieve Alyson Hannigan's level of cuteness...

Sometimes you reach a point where you stop being bitter about love and decide to embrace the adorable heart-shaped everything holiday that is Valentine's day. Of course I don't have a date and won't be spending the day or evening with the boy of my dreams (can you hear me Harry Styles?), but I do have a day full of plans I'm actually excited about. So to all my fellow single ladies: Get out of bed.  Put on your favorite pink dress and red lipstick. Buy yourself a bag of candy hearts and a bottle of pink champagne. Turn on or go see a horror movie (ok this might just be my idea of a perfect Valentine's but if you really think about it, it's quite fitting). Celebrate the fact that you don't have someone tying you down (seriously gals, take a closer look at half the people who are in relationships).

blogging is hard :(

I obviously suck at blogging which is something I hope to get better at this year. I'm going to try to convince someone to help me make my blog pretty because I believe that would motivate me to post more. Until then I'll try to post at least once a week, most likely outfits or photos from recent shoots. I have really great intentions of posting my thoughts and inspirations but I can never finish anything. You should see the amount of drafts I have saved.
