Soooooo plot twist: University of La Verne was not for me! The people weren’t right, the food was MOST DEFINITELY not right, but overall the vibes of the the whole college were just not right! And the fashion? Literally non-existent, unless someone was going to a frat event. So after withdrawing from La Verne I’ve taken up my new career path: Stripping Across America under my new name, BoBo!
Ok sooo maybe not that exciting but a girl can dream.
I’ve actually switched to LA City College because who doesn’t love the city of angels and pollution? So you’d think that after such a big move from a small town to one of the biggest cities the outfits would be poppin’ 24/7, right???
My biggest style icons have been reduced to a boy that smells like hot dog water and a woman who’s hair looks like strands of ribbon.. Tragic, I know..
So until I can make more style conscience friends, I’ll have to be my own style icon.
So the first things that I wear almost everyday are GLASSES
I have a couple pairs of glasses/sunglasses that I love to throw on with any outfit and it always seems to throw everything together or add a little flare!
I picked up the Purple-ish ones from this nifty little swap meet in LA called the Melrose Trading Post. It’s pretty much another attempt for Angelenos to appear chic and hipster (but it was pretty cute so I can’t complain LOL). There was a booth filled to the brim with sunglasses and they were all SO CHEAP, so I picked these up for a good $7.
The Scary Potter glasses also came from LA! A group of friends and I took a trip out and made a stop at the Fashion District; known for it’s low prices and even lower quality… BUT I GOT THESE GLASSES FOR $5 SO WE’RE LIT BINCH!
Lastly the Narc glasses came from Cotton On, a new favorite store of mine due to their low prices and super stylish clothes. Only down side to that store is their creepy ass lifelike mannequins… but the glasses were $10 so again, WE’RE LIT BINCH!!!
Lastly we have Desmond’s orange glasses. The glasses are from Forever 21 and he paid about $7 for them!
Okay so while y’all may be thinking “Sweaters.. in the Spring.. when its getting hot???” don’t worry, I have reasoning!
In LA it highly gets chilly in the morning and so its always good to pack a light sweater that you can aways just shove in your bag.
The first sweater is a windbreaker from Hollister. I was first turned off when I walked into the store because the work said “HI WELCOME TO HOLLISTER!” I walked right out.
But eventually my friend made me go back in and I found this gem. It was about $60 but thanks to my Club Cali Member status (and my friend paying for half of it, Shhhhhhh..) it was only like $30. GREAT RIGHT???
The 2nd & 3rd jackets are from Forever 21 (as much of my wardrobe is tbh.) The first one ($30) is great because it makes me look way more fashionable than I actually am, and the 3rd one ($25) is fantastic because it’s distressed! Since it’s a little heavier the distressed holes make it really easy for air to move through it! Functional and fashionable!
Lastly is the S H O E S
I haven’t purchased too many shoes in the past couple of months BUT two that I’ve had my eye on are Adidas Superstars ($80( & Black + White Checkered Vans ($55). I’ve literally seen everyone wearing both of these, from YouTubers, to celebrities, and even my friends! So when I saw these starting to pick up some talk I knew I had to buy some for myself. They’re both black and white, meaning that they pretty much go w any outfit. On top of their style flexibility they are also super-duper comfy and great for walking, which we all know I don’t actually do sooooo idk why i mentioned that…
So that’s pretty much it for this time and next time I remember this blog exists, I’ll post some more! Bye binch!
