My most intricate look yet!
I was so excited to make this dead look come to life, especially since "Dia de los Muertos" has been a part of my culture for so many years. When I used to live in Mexico, I remember that every year my mom would buy my sister and I a sugar or chocolate skull. Of course I liked the chocolate skull better because I could actually devour it while the sugar one was for decorative purposes only.

Anyways, about the look...the makeup was definitely the hardest part especially the teeth but I thought it turned out well. My flower crown (which I wish I could wear every day) took about an hour to make but was very simple to do. I just got a decorative crown, a bunch of flowers and cut roughly 3/4 of their stems, then placed each flower individually into the crown. Like I said before, very easy.
Even though this costume took more time than my usual procrastinated Halloween costumes, it was well worth it and I hope you guys like it too.

My amazing partner in crime.

Feels like Fall

I don't know about you guys but I'm ready for fall to get here already. I do hate the cold weather but love the clothes that come with it: leggings, coats, blazers, leather jackets, boots, scarves!
Texas weather is unpredictable and most of the time it's hot, so take advantage of the few 70 ° "cold fronts" that come along (like this weekend!) and take your boots and leggings out and pair it with a cute flirty top.

Gallery D

I decided to do my next blog post on one of my favorite stores in Austin, Gallery D. It’s a combination of Austin’s relaxed attitude, New York’s edginess, and Paris’ effortless chic look that draws me into the store every time. The name Gallery D originated back when Emily lived in New York’s SOHO district in which each floor in her apartment was called a “Gallery.”
It’s been three years since Gallery D opened and owners Emily and Beth have not looked back since. Their dream store has flourished into a 2nd Street must shopping destination and there is no doubt these lovely ladies will continue to grow their business.

Hope you guys enjoy the clothes I picked out from their new and vintage collection along with some inspirational color palettes from nature :)

Starting off with this Barbie bubble gum Pink dress
