eBay Wishlist

Hey guys! I've been away for quite some time and I figured it's time for me to get back to blogging. I thought I'd jump right back into the swing of things with a quick wishlist. Just to wet my feet a bit. I've been seeing tons of Xmas related wishlist amongst the blogging atmosphere lately, so I thought I'd do one too! Now, this is not my Christmas wishlist. (I still don't know what I want at the moment.) These are just some of the shoe items I've been eyeing on ebay lately and wish to soon buy... Or receive as a gift! *wink, wink*

*Just a quick note: I am posting from my iPhone and therefore can't post the links to these items. So if you see something you like, just comment below and I'll let you know where to find it! Hope you're all having a great weekend!

"Carpe Diem"

Top - Thrifted
Bralette - F21
JC Tardy's - Nordstrom
Sunglasses - eBay

Is anyone else like completely over Summer? I know I am. I truly can't wait for the Fall season to make it's arrival. I haven't been very consistent with my postings, as usual. But hey, I'm only human, and a pretty busy one at that... Anywho, I thought I'd share with you some photos from the other day. The boyfriend and I spent the day snapping pics of me in random Downtown areas. I brought my JC Tardy's out because they're just so freaking perfect. They add just the right amount of edge to any outfit. I hate looking too "girly"... I swear, I can wear those shoes with anything!

DIY | Ragged Priest Inspired Shoes

I'm sure you all have heard of Nia from NiaSays (YouTube). And if not, then stop what you're doing, open up another tab on whatever device you are currently browsing on, and go check this woman out! Her style is so sick! Infact, I pretty much just love her whole persona. (Can I be more of a creeper?) Of course when I caught her feature of a certain pair of badass Ragged Priest spiked cowboy-esque shoes, I couldn't resist doing a DIY! These boot shoes, I purchased from eBay for $40.00 and the spikes are from the old trusty site I simply used Nia's shoes as reference because I pretty much wanted mine to look as identical as possible. And may I boast a little by saying I did an impeccable job?! Especially considering the huge price-tag that I did not have pay? DIYs are great ways to "ball on a budget"... Look expensive without the actual expense! Anywho, here's a few pictures of the shoes before and after the intense spiking...

Oh, and by the way, the denim vest I've had you guys anticipating on seeing is done. I really haven't had the time to style it and take photos. I will post it up as soon as possible!

Red Forman's Basement

My uncanny sense of sarcasm never gets old... These photos were taken in my boyfriend's basement. It looks nothing like Red Foreman's basement of course, (That 70's Show reference). But due to the simple fact that we spend 90% of our time down there, I think the name suffices. Somewhat old and shabby, with the most perfect random, vintage knick knacks sprawled about in strategic areas. I mean, there's Egyptian head statuettes down there! I think it's a wonderland of vintage. Of course I forced my boyfriend to capture my outfit amongst the grunginess of it all! I'm not sure how old the armoire you see in these photos is. But I've been scheming on how I can make this bad boy mine for years!

OUTFIT | "Red Brick Road"

Me and the boy-toy went to see The Avengers this past weekend. (3 THUMBS UP! Btw) Afterwards, we decided to flip out the good old Canon and flick it up on "the bricks". His photography skills are getting a little better! Not too many pics of me... I mostly played paparazzi on him.

This is somewhat of an outfit post as well. I was feeling kind of Tom-Boy'ish and opted for sneakers and denim. I "dressed" it up a little with a blazer. I'll call this look, Tom-Boy Chic.

Blazer - Thrifted 

Shorts - Thrifted/DIY
Belt - Thrifted
Sweatshirt - Brother's
Sneakers - Finishline
