I'm a Burger!

Tank- American Apparel, Shorts- DIY, Pin- Burger Records 
     I got this pin from this cute little record store in Fullerton called Burger Records. They often have low key shows going on, which has been on of my favorite things to go to this summer. If you haven't heard of them, you should really check them out (which you can do here)
     Yesterday was my 19th birthday, which has been interesting considering this is my last year as a teenager. Part of me feels really young, but part of me feels really old to think my time considering myself as a teenager is ticking away. I actually share my birthday with my dear friend Pranaya, but unfortunately I had to spend the day in the car while my family as we drove to Oregon. I do absolutely love Oregon though, and will be heading up to Portland for the first time ever in a few days. So if anyone has suggestions of things to do in Portland, please let me know!

Top- Forever 21, Shorts- H&M, Creepers- T.U.K., Sunglasses and Earrings- Flashbacks 
     When I saw this top I gasped. Even though I try to not support Forever 21, it was one of those things I would have been dumb to pass up. I had been looking for just a cropped top like this the day I found it, and not only did it support my checkers obsession but it was only $8. So sorry. Not sorry. It's the closest I'll ever come to the Louis Vuitton fall/winter 2013 collection from my dreams.

Why I'm freaking out over Saint Laurent

Something very important happened recently in the world of fashion. I'm talking about Saint Laurent Spring Menswear.
     These are just a few of my favorite looks from the show. In all, the whole thing was absolutely wonderful; the use of stripes, the colors, the whole rockabilly vibe. In general there is nothing I love more than a man in a fitted suit. But mix that with stripes and rock and roll and you've got a collection that I could only dream about. 
     However even with all these wonderful combinations, that is not the reason I'm freaking out over this collection. The reason I'm so excited is because of two of the models used in the show: Fletcher and Wyatt Shears. 
     Fletcher and Wyatt are twins from Orange County that make up this wonderful punk band that I've recently become obsessed with called The Garden. It's already known that Heidi Slimane loves to work with musicians; for example he's used Marilyn Manson in some of his ad campaigns before. Not only that but he's used Fletcher and Wyatt to model before.  
     Now lets completely ignore the fact that they walked in this show and talk about how great The Garden is on it's own. The Garden is possibly the closest thing we can get today to an authentic punk band. 
Here are a few of my favorites :

     Are you obsessed yet? At least over the fact that Fletcher wears women's clothes and lipstick? Because you should be. So you got the coolness of this band and the fact that they modeled for YSL, I think my obsession is understandable.

California Dreaming

Dress- DIY (yeah, das right), Socks and little baby barrette- Target, Shoes- Forever 21 
     Not going to lie, I'm super proud of this dress. I took a sewing class second semester and in it we made two pieces; I chose pants and a 60s styled shift dress. I made the pants first, and let's just say they make me want to throw up. So when I started making this dress I was pretty discouraged. But then I ended up pleasantly surprising myself and regaining courage in the idea that maybe even I can sew. Also, I totally chose baby blanket material for the fabric so its ridiculously soft. 
    The title of this post is referencing a song by easily one of my new favorite bands, The Cosmonauts. This summer I've been getting pretty into the local music scene in my area. I've already seen this band twice including last night at this cute lil music store in Fullerton called Burger Records. I highly suggest you give them a listen. Or check out their facebook page. Trust me, they're cool.
