Stop The Hate :: Street Style

In my Fashion Forecasting class we had an assignment 
where we had to wear our best street style outfit and present it to class. 
Of course it had to be on a day where it was torrential downpour. 

It was definitely a day where this bustle meme was right on the money:

We also needed to share outfit pictures, perfect opportunity to stop by this 
"Stop The Hate Someone's Watching You" store front across the street from the FIT campus:



What I Wore: glasses- c/o Faniel, lips- NYX "Alabama", necklace- Hunt & Orchard, top- vintage, fur- from boutique in West New York, pants- Old Navy, boots- vintage, bag- from market in Bangkok, Thailand   







I am obsessed with me new spider/skull necklace from Hunt & Orchard
it is definitely a favorite! 

Here is my little explanation for this outfit and how/why I put it together for my class: 
             My Street Style outfit is called “Mixed Patterns with Western Fringe & Fur”. I decided to pattern match in this outfit because I feel most comfortable when layering patterns. I wanted to keep the color palette mostly black, white and grey with a pop of color with my vintage red boots. The grey fur coat tops off the outfit with some texture. The fringe detail of the gingham top makes this look have little bit of a Western vibe that is trending on the most recent runway show. I also tied the front to make the top more flattering and be more spring appropriate.   
              I like to match my eye makeup to a similar color palette of my outfit so I went with silver and red combination. I also wore a red lip to bring the red color up and tie in the boots. I decided to wear my black Faniel glasses with silver stone details on the sides. I love Faniel glasses, they are so different, intricate and pretty.   
              The bag I decided to carry today was a purchase from my recent spring break trip the Pat Pong Night Market in Bangkok, Thailand. I love this bag because it looks black in normal light with an almost gasoline shine to it. When this bag is in black light or when you take a picture of it with a flash on, it becomes a light-bright neon masterpiece. This bag is an interesting shape that can fold up and can also become a bucket bag shape. This was one of my main purchases on this trip and I am so happy that I picked up this bag.

Fashion school is awesome.

It is hard to even get out of bed with these cuddle bugs:

I love how bright this orange is on this yellow plate and on our red table,
so colorful 🍊

"We're only tourists in this life" :: Phuket, Thailand Adventure Day 10

Day 10 Recap of our trip to Thailand for the Z's Turn 30!
{trip still available on Groupon- it is an amazing deal!}

Our last day in this beautiful place,
we had to check out of our room at 12 PM 
but were not leaving for the airport until 10:30 PM.

So we decided to spend the day at the beach and pool, 
use the hotel showers and just relax.



I miss these mango smoothies with rum, they were amazing! 

We had lunch at the hotel, 
I had the Wonton Soup and Shrimp Spring Rolls, both were very good

Charlie had the Mussaman Curry:



A day of relaxing allowed me to finish the book I brought,
such a cute story, I enjoyed it! 

We headed to the roof top bar for our last sunset 


Charlie's Sunglasses- Rayban
My Sunglasses- c/o Glasseslit



 What I Wore: glasses- c/o Mo Eyewear, top- from Old Town Phuket shop, shorts- k/lab @ Kohls, sandals- Target, bag- from Floating Market in Bangkok





Had to get one last rolled ice cream... this one was mango!

In Thailand, like many places, you have to pay to use some bathrooms, 
this one had SO MANY signs about not washing your feet in the toilets... 
EW.

 When we got back to the hotel we noticed these two frogs chatting away, 
I thought this was especially fitting since it is kinda how I met Charlie 10 years ago...

Good night and good bye Novotel
it's been awesome. 

When we finally got home, after over 24 hours of traveling, 
I could not wait to unpack.
I love our elephant that we got in Bangkok, 
he is a perfect addition to our fireplace mantel

I added lots of little coral pieces to our book shelves:

Thailand was a beautiful, crazy, amazing experience. 
We would definitely go back. 

Time to get back to the grind in the US of A
