WASTELAND - My Current Favorite Online Retail Store! =D

One day...I looked into my closet and thought to myself, "Wing.... you have way more than enough clothing. There are so many pieces in there that you don't even wear more than twice a year, perhaps not even once in the entire year... so why are you buying more clothing?"  I think this is a reality that many people face haha.  When I was younger,  I used to buy clothing like there was no tomorrow.  Ok ok I'm being a little overly dramatic here, but what I mean is...I used to buy clothing without thinking about whether I actually needed it or not.  And the thing about me loving that my style always changes, which means what I liked last year might not be something that I'd currently wear...

Anyway, since my realization...I've seriously bought less clothing.  I realized that I could be using my money on something more important, and perhaps just saving the money up for more practical and useful things in the future!  Despite shopping less, haha there's no harm to online "window" shopping right (haha get it?  Using Window 7?  Sorry that was dumb LOL.)   There's no window that I'm actually looking through, but it's the same idea where I'm browsing but not buying!   So yep, that's exactly what I've been doing, and my current favorite online retail store is......Dun dun dun......


Below are some pieces that I am currently in love with & would love to share on my blog!  Check it out! =) 

Evil Twin
Bruise Easy Babydoll 

I am absolutely in love with this dress.  Scary though...cause it's almost as expensive as my prom dress!  Anyway, I'm in the phase right now where I adore over sized garments, so this dress works perfectly!  What differs this from other dresses is seriously the unique tie-dye color as well as the black dipped bottom!  I haven't seen something quite as daring as this, and how nice it would be if I owned it! LOL 

One Teaspoon
London Boys Call Playsuit 

Alright, LOL, so this dress officially surpasses the price of my Senior Prom Dress!  It's super pricey, but I love it!  I love the shape of this dress.  It's tight enough to give the body some shape, but loose enough to exude comfort!  The front lacing is absolutely stunning, and I love the subtle yet stylish shoulder cut-outs! 

Evil Twin
Bad Scene Dress 

Here's another dress from the Evil Twin.  So far the Evil Twin is my favorite brand when it comes to dresses that Wasteland carries.  I love this dress because of the print and color, and most of all because of the super flattering shape it provides!  This bustier dress with a sweetheart neck-line act likes a flattering corset that compliments our upper body, and a flared bottom that gives our look some "ooomf" LOL!  I love this dress!!!!  

Panthers Lace Dress 
Originally: $128.00
Now: $89.89

To be honest...I have mixed feelings about this dress.  I think the peplum shape of the top is absolutely stunning...but I don't think it's something that'll compliment everyone.  Despite the nice shape, I think this dress is super duper dramatic.  The contrast between white and black already calls attention, but the super dramatic floral lace doubles the drama.  I think this dress is stunning on the model and she pulls it off..but I'm not sure how versatile this dress would be.  It looks amazing, but I think it'd be a little too dramatic for a casual day out, interview, or even an evening party.  

Evil Twin 
Ungrateful Life Tank 

Another item from Evil Twin!!! =D  My new fashion trend is.....TIE DYE! =)  I think tie dye is quite dramatic and some people might even see it as tacky, but who cares, I love it!  I don't have anything that's tie-dye but I do see myself getting my hands on some LOL!  Besides the pattern, something else that I like about the top is that it's cropped, which is super popular this year!  Though I favor this trend...I don't think I'll be able to wear cropped tops until I lose some of my belly!  haha  

Cotton Candy Dream Top

LOL this top matches the name perfectly!  It seriously reminds me of some sweet and yummy cotton candy! The vibrant colors are very pretty and eye catching, and not to mention it has a  Tie-dyed pattern!!!!  I love the style of the top, and it's actually pretty affordable compared to everything else in the store!  LOL  It's interesting how the Ungrateful Life Tank (Top: Above the Cotton Candy Dream Top), is more than double Cotton Candy Dream Top's price!  

Striped Hot Shorts 
OMG how adorable are these hot pants?  I love the striped pattern, I love the colors, and more importantly I love how these pants have a high waist line & have slits in the front!  Slits are extremely popular...especially for next Spring, and I think the slits make the perfect finishing to these shorts!  

Jamie Short
These shorts are too awesome!  =)  hehe  It's interesting...cause I probably would have never guessed that I'd end up liking something like this.  I used to be a jean shorts fan, and would never really put any thought into trying pants like the Jamie Short.  I think the shorts are so fun!  The colors, like almost all the items I favored, are fun and colorful!  Again, like the pair of shorts above...I love how these shorts are high waisted!  haha and I think the black lace brings uniqueness to the shorts!  <3

Alright, so this is it to the Wasteland items that I am currently in love with! =) I've never actually been to an actual wasteland store, but I'm seriously aiming to visit their store(s) in the near future!  I heard their stores are split into 2 sections, 1 with clothing from brands their carry, and the 2nd section with thrift items that they purchased from other people.  I think that's pretty cool!  One thing that I love about thrift stores is that some of the most unique clothing can be found there, which minimizes that chances of other people owning the same item the buyer.  haha  Anyway, Wasteland carries some of the most unique and stylish street chic apparel I've seen, and their fashion style is something I seriously respect and love! =) <3!  I'm most likely not going to purchase anything...but it's just nice to share what I love on my blog! =)

Do you own a pair of red pants?  I've always had a love for colored pants, but I guess it's a trend that I never "dared" to try!  I'm all about versatility, and something about colored pants made me feel a little intimidated with the amount outfits I'd be able to match them with.  For some odd reason, I bought my first pair of red pants around 3 months ago.  I don't think I've EVER...thought I'd have the courage to pull off red pants.  I'm not talking about maroon or burgundy...I'm talking about Rainbow Red!  LOL  Anyway, so far, I'm pretty much in love with my red skinnies!  They're actually one of my favorite pair of pants!  They're super comfortable, and whenever I see them, I'd start feeling pretty excited to mix and match them with a new outfit!  

Anyway, here's one of my favorite outfits with my new RED PANTS

(The vibrant exposure pics were actually minimally adjusted.  haha that's pretty much that day's natural lighting! =)  Pretty awesome huh? hehe) 




I had so much fun during this photoshoot, as well as editing the pictures!  I love how dramatic, yet classy my outfit looks! =)  Though it was super hot that day, I felt extremely content and happy posing with my outfit, because it's a look that I don't usually go for!  
BTW: The 2 pictures above were probably two of my favorites!  

And lastly, here's a cheerful picture of me!  =)  I feel like it's been a while since I've uploaded a picture of myself actually here it is!  Anyway, I've been really loving my red pants, and dramatic pants in general!  I can't wait to wear them more during the Summer, cause eventually the color will be too bright from Fall and Winter!

Dressing According to My Mood

Today pretty much went by like....."that" (with a snap).

However, I am excited though cause I will be having another photo shoot tomorrow for lookbook!  Something that I realized about me is that I don't really follow a specific trend.  I don't follow a specific look or style, because I basically go with whatever I feel!  

I suppose that's a good thing cause there's versatility LOL in my style?  Anyway, after writing my blog, I'm gonna head to my closet and choose some outfits for tomorrow!  I know..super last minute, but that's when I get my inspiration.  =)  

Anyway, I feel like I've been wasting a lot of my day today watching America's Next Top Model.  The difference between watching the show on TV as opposed to online, is that I'd have to watch through the entire show without being able to fast forward to other parts, and on top of that I'd have to wait a week before watching the next episode.  So far, I've watched the first 8 episodes of America's Next Top Model Cycle 13.  I should really slow down with it cause it's never good for anyone to stare at a screen for that long.  On the bright side, I'm just glad that I'm finally filling in on what I've been missing out on for the passed 9 cycles!  

For the sake of my eyes though, I'm going to stop the watching for today!  I'm feeling quite mellow content right I'm happy with everything, just a little down?  haha does that even make sense?  Anyway, I hope everyone has been enjoying their weekend!  Only one and a half more days till the beginning of another week, so definitely make use of your time!

LookBook OOTD: Floral Dust


Wow...I can't believe it's been 3 months since I last posted an Outfit of the Day!  Anyway...I'm back lol, and I'm back with my most current OOTD! =)  I don't think I've ever shared this on my blog, but I've always had a small obsession for Floral Prints!  I think they're so girly and fun, and nothing's better than being able to wear them all season long, perhaps even for summer! =)  

This is actually one of my most favorite outfits.  Why?  Because not only does it speak my fun loving and girly personality, it's actually one of the most comfy outfits that I've worn for any LookBook shoot! LOL.  It's nothing too fancy, and it's definitely something that I can wear out on a daily basis!  I would describe this look at a Girly Hippie look.  The dress of course is the main center piece, and from that on, I basically just built my outfit around it!  

Because the bodice of the dress was formfitting and complimented my upper body like a corset would, I was able to balance the dress with a loose fitting white cardigan.  This cardigan is by a brand called 213 Industry, and it's like none other that I've seen!  The knitted pattern is extremely unique, and it definitely added a unique touch to my entire outfit.  Though the dress's and cardigan's fabric and texture differed, both were dominant in white, and ended up complimenting each other!  

As for my shoes, I decided to pair this outfit with some earthtone sandles.  Wearing such a colorful dress, my brown sandles were appropriate for the season, and balanced out the dress in terms of color!  

I'm not a huge fan of jewelry or accessories, but I just had to finish Floral Dust off with my white and pink floral headband!  =)  I love how the colors of the flowers on my headband matched the ones that are on my dress, and haha I think adding this accessory definitely helped complete this outfit's Girly Hippie look! =)  


Wearing: Floral Maxi Dress (Urban 1972), Knitted White Cardigan (213 Industry), Floral Headband (Forever21), Sandles (A Store in Spain) 

And yep, this is Floral Dust!  Anyway, I miss blogging so much! =(  It's been such a long while since I last blogged consistently or updated my OOTD, so I definitely look forward to doing so in the future!  I hope everyone has been doing well, and until next time, Take Care! =) <3
