You guys, this past weekend I finally got to take actual photos with a real camera! **studio audience cheering**
My pretty friend, Rachel Ruiz, and I traipsed around Kensington and North Park while I played dress up. A few things I learned: 1) Taking pictures is actually kind of exhausting. 2) You shouldn’t change your top in a car without tinted windows while stopped at a stop sign near a restaurant with patio seating. Of course this only applies if you have boobs. Men, feel free. 3) Rachel is a genius. Which I guess I already knew, but you can’t make a list without putting at least 3 things on it.
We photographed 5 outfits— this one’s going first because it’s my favorite. I was originally thinking of waiting and being like “noooooo I’ll save it for later” but I lack self-control so here we are. First of all, I want everyone to look at this AMAZING FUR COAT. Do you see that shit??? Fifty bucks at Flashbacks in Hillcrest! I know, I couldn’t believe it either. I mean, I understand that there is absolutely no reason for me, living in San Diego, to own a fur coat, but like, look at it! Even if I never wear it for anything real in life, I feel like I made the right decision. NO REGRETS TAKE NO PRISONERS. Okay maybe that last part is different haha. Oh and btw the fur is fake you guys, don’t call PETA okay thanks.
The dress I got from Urban (that’s Urban Outfitters for all you non hepcats). I paid way too much for it (standard) but it is a great dress. Bodycon, pencil skirt length, racer front, all black, nailed it. For my hair, I’ve recently really gotten into tying headscarves. I’ll credit this to that Tumblr blog I follow, blackgirlsrpretty2—which, just quick side note, I really recommend everyone follow beauty blogs that show pictures of people who look like you. Representation is important and I think it’s too often overlooked. So black girls, find black beauty blogs. Hispanic girls, find Hispanic beauty blogs, etc. White girls, you can just turn on the TV or open Vogue/any other major magazine publication and you should be fine. #shotsfired #sorrynotsorry. BUT ANYWAY as I was saying before I decided to fight everyone, I love that beauty blog and I’m super into headscarves right now. I just put my hair in a bun and then I wrap a scarf from Target around it and all of a sudden I look like I own a country or some shit, it’s tight. I’ll post more of the outfits in the coming days, but I was too excited not to share this one now! Enjoy!
