Austin, Texas is home to an abundance of artists. One of them is Sue Zola.
Her medium of choice isn't paint, or pastels, or clay. She uses something less common in the adult world of art. 

She uses glitter.

Recently, she had a series of contests on her facebook page 
and I had the pleasure of winning some of them!!

There are two of Jackie Beat and one of Lady Bunny, which was actually a reject but looked beautiful to me. Enjoy!

What's that I see?

I don't want to call it a trend because that would mean it's a temporary stop in the history of fashion. I guess I could call it a phenomena.
Coloured eyebrows are a phenomena. 

While the idea of changing your eyebrow colour seems new to some people, it's been around much longer than you think and even survives in our generation. It's amazing.

Boy George was always known as being a fashionista/o. In the mid 80's (pictured below), he played around with makeup and coloured his brows! They're a subtle colour, navy blue, but this wasn't the only instance, as I'm sure you'll be able to find. 

More recently, Balenciaga had a show in 2010 with colored eyebrows!! How could you look at the clothing when those eyebrows are there?!?!?!

"is that a donut?"
"can't wait to eat after this."

I love the pastel take on them. CUTE. CUTE. CUTE.

Even celebs are getting in on this craze...

T.O.P., from Big Bang
Byron London and Jamie Ryan Dee are 2 well-known bloggers who took the plunge recently too...

Two seasons ago, Chanel decided to spice up the decorations and glued sequins and beads to their models!
What do you think about this wacky phenomena? Would you do this?

Shopping on South Congress!

Today I was social (GO ME!) and I hung out with my friend, Jack. We went to South Congress Avenue in Austin and I did some shopping. It's like 2 miles away, how cool?! I went to American Apparel and got some shorts I've been eyeing for awhile, I wanted to try them on though so I just waited for me to move to Austin first. It was the longest wait of my life. ANYWHO I got them.

THERE THEY ARE!!! I might wear them to the barbeque tonight so if I do, I'll post a lookbook with them. They're chambray and they're supes cute. Blythe Smith has a pair of these and they're always adorable when he wears them so I wanted a pair too so we could be twinsies! (update: here's the lookbook)

Next, I got this sky blue shirt from American Apparel. This color always goes well with my skin tone but I don't have anything that fits me currently in this colour. So I basically needed it. Right?

Sorry for the ugly background. It's my wardrobe in the dorm. I couldn't think of anything else to hang it on. But the colour is what I wanted to show. It's cute y'all.

After the American Apparel escapade, we went to the thrift store right next door. It's St. Vincent's Thrift Store. Let me tell you, if you live in Austin (or even driving distance) you should go here. They have really cool stuff and it's all really well priced too. So without further promotion of St. VIncent's, here's what I got.

It was only $2!! How could I not get it? I think it's meant to be a belt, but it could totally be worn as a necklace or even some kind of abstract shoulder sling. (update: here's a lookbook with the shorts AND the belt!The back straps are elastic which is why I think it's a belt but here's me wearing it as a necklace...

Copenhagen Fashion Week started today and the first show was the CIFF trends show!! There was a mass load of clothing there and it was quite impressive, they had four different sections of the show with music changes (it was great music too) and all four were very different from each other. The trends they predicted are amazing. Everything from european-dance-kid to business casual to Saudi Arabian to pilgrim. Here we go....

This first outfit was as strong starter, it's like a pink silicone monster face printed on flesh tone mesh dress kind of thing. Can I just say it's 100% amazing? Like look at it. *moment of silence*

I really like this furry vest. It says "POP!" on the back and I thought it was a great piece, it's very colorful and I would absolutely love to own it. It's right on trend.
Crop sweaters for men are definitely going to be all the rage this season! They're mega awesome and I've actually really been wanting one lately, and was going to make it and it just solidifies that I really should just buy one or make one because they're obviously on trend. Also, aren't they kind of sexy or is that just me? I'm not feeling the sweatpants just because I'm partial to jeans. I think jeans would've looked awesome here....or leggings. 

I liked the personality of this piece. I'm really attracted to clothing that has different elements. This shirt is not only sheer but also has a golden-ab-structure-cutout underneath it!! How cool!

Hopefully I'm not the only one who thought this Stepford-wife dress was adorable. The trainers are a bit disconnected but the main part of the outfit, the dress, was gorgeous. And I liked the lime green belt accent. 

Most consumers are scared to mix metallics together and this combo proves it can be done. The metallic mixing was a reoccurring motif in the collection and it made me happy to see that CIFF was being "daring". 

Onto to this jacket. The above blue/white/tan fur bolero jacket just did not work. It made a very loud statement, but it was loud in all the wrong ways. It was too many colors to look good and way too overdone. Don't get me wrong, I love love love weird fashion but this was just not cute. 

I really want a quilted jacket, they're coming back in and I need one now. My only problem: it's smothering hot in Texas. 

This jacket was a bit derivative of Comme Des Garçons' latest collection, with it being oversized, and I was looking forward to things a bit more fashion-forward and predicting trends rather than playing off of trends that have already been shown. 

Ooooooh prettty ooooohhh shinnnneeeee

Fuchsia socks (or any other bright colour really) are exciting! I hope this does become "trendy" because I will rock some coloured socks in a hot minute. Regardless of trend. 

Not much to say about this outfit other than, doesn't it look like it could belong in Moonrise Kingdom?

The pace changed up and they started bringing out a series of outfits I didn't really like. At all. So I'm not going to cover them but here's a taste of them....

And the good clothing started again.....
CAMO IS HERE TO STAY!! BOOM! This jacket was in-your-face-camo. Fur+Camo=

Here come the pilgrims!

The grey sheer/cashmere number was lovely. Just lovely. The way it flowed was magical and I really just appreciated that piece. 

For some reason I've been really getting in to chunky heels. Here they are again. I'm in ♡.

The CIFF show was undeniably trend-setting and fire hot! They know what they're doing and I can't wait to see next season.

Silver Hair is ALL THE RAGE

I made a video detailing how to get the coveted colour...

  • Make sure to foam up the dye as much as possible, unless you do want purple streaks. 
  • Have fun and just go for it!
