Interview Phase 2

So as part of the second phase of interviewing to be a junior stylist I had to put together a few instagram shots that I thought would work for the company.  I didn't have to use their clothes or merchandise because they obviously don't expect me to have a wardrobe full of their clothes but they wanted to see my creative side. Here's what I put together:

I got a reply back from the head stylist and she said these were great and that she'd let me know what's up with the position on Friday. Hopefully it's good news! I really really enjoyed doing this project and honestly can't believe that an opportunity like this presented itself to me. I was in there interviewing to be a returns processor and was asked to interview for the junior stylist position instead. So stoked, styling is one of my favorite things to do, preparing myself for the worst but hoping (dreaming, praying, wishing) for the best.

Lucid Dreaming

Went on a stroll through the local college here and I was blown away by all the beautiful nature around. Stopped to snap a few shots. It was a warm breezy day, the weather has been so gorgeous lately.

Top - Vintage/Thrifted
Skirt - Lolita 
Shoes - Converse
Sunglasses - Burberry

I really adore colors and wearing colorful outfits. It really brightens up my mood, I really dig burnt orange and absolutely adore the print on this shirt I found at Salvation Army. I found the skirt in a Buffalo Exchange in the Mission in SF. The majority of my closet is from thrift stores, I used to go thrifting first thing every Wednesday (and probably more often than that). I've always said thrift stores are like my church. Anyways, I'm getting more used to remembering to take pictures of my outfits and I'm really enjoying sharing them.

trippy vibes

I'm making it a point to find all the cool artsy stuff in my new town and love love love this Beatles mural I found as well as an astronaut painting that I discovered in downtown.  So dope! And also so stoked to share another outfit post with y'all, think I'm starting to get the hang of this. 

That jacket means so much to me. It was my dad's when he used to race corvette's in the 80's, it's covered in the sickest patches. Definitely making a post on that jacket soon.

  • Mezon - Crop Tank
  • American Rag - Jacket
  • Liz Claiborne - High Waisted Pants
  • High Top Converse 

My boyfriend (pictured above) is my unofficial photographer. I'm actually pretty decent with photography and have been teaching him and he's catching on quickly. Yay! He's been a good sport about it and I'm really happy that he's supportive of me and this blog. 
This was a really fun outfit shoot, we walked around downtown and he showed me dope murals. I'm super stoked about this outfit too, the Mezon tank I'm wearing is SO comfy and so are those pants. I love finding Liz Claiborne clothing in thrift stores, it's like vintage gold to me!  Also got that necklace from a guy on the street, and it's one of my favorites now. It has a little piece of black tourmaline in it and I'm obsessed. I always carry a little black tourmaline with me in my bag but now I have some to wear around my neck! How lucky am I! I've been having wonderful days lately, the weather has been beautiful and so have the humans, I'm hoping these lovely days keep on rolling through. I have a good feeling about life, good things are to come. Hope all of you have been feeling the good vibes too!

aye bay bay

Recent trip back to the bay! First day back was all fun and games before I came down with a cold. It was so nice to be back where I grew up and spend some time with loved ones. Wish I got more pictures  but here I present you with a few shots from the first 24 hours of the trip.

Yes. That is indeed a log in the room. A second story room, mind you.

That just about sums up the first day back, tbh I don't have too many pictures of the rest of the days but most of them were spent with good friends and at my mom's house recovering from my cold with homemade orange juice and collaging from old TIME magazines.  Perhaps I'll share some collages and artwork in later posts. We'll see!

TOODLES!! xo, Meow ^__^
