Glam Rock

I recently styled 3 looks in response to the Glam Rock subculture of the 70s.

I recently styled 3 looks in response to the Glam Rock subculture of the 70s. I looked to the greatest fashion icons of the time for inspiration, including Bowie, Marc Bolan, and Elton John (at the start of his career). As you can see I had so much fun with the colors and textures, including sequins, glitter, and metallics. My style is usually 90s grunge or 2000s Britney spears era inspired, so this was a huge contrast to me, but I absolutely LOVED the challenge and the outcome. I hope you all enjoy!

Manchester

24 hours in Manchester…

I recently spend 24 hours in Manchester visiting my sister, and I was so surprised by how my I enjoyed. First and foremost, let’s talk about the Intu Trafford Center shopping mall. THE most amazing mall I’ve ever seen/been to in my life. Not to mention, that I found a stall with the best candy floss I’ve tasted. My sister and I haven’t spent much time together before this trip, so it was nice to do a bit of retail therapy, get lunch, and take busses and ubers all over Manchester for a day.

Later that night, we went mini golfing at the Roxy Ballroom, which was one of the hardest mini golf coursed I’ve done, but it was so fun and I really enjoyed it.

Another concept that I wanted brought to life. I am so proud of the outcome, so I’ll just leave the photos here for you to enjoy.

Sea Blue

My favorite place

Some photos of me at my favorite place. One thing I love about my home so much is the beach. I’m an earth sign and the sea just makes me calm and relaxed. On this day, the waves were rough and the water was murkier than usual but I still enjoyed it all the same.

Instyle Cayman

Last month, I was apart of a new local fashion show that involved beautiful designs and lovely people. I was lucky to have 8 looks (very hectic) in the main show, and one in the pre-show. I wish I could model every day. I love runway and editorial, and love modeling so much. I hope to get into it semi professionally for a bit just to experiment! Anyway, here are some of my looks below.

Milk Train

Introducing… my favorite ice cream

Milk Train cafe in Covent Garden is one of my favorite places in London that I’m missing and craving a lot right now. They have some of if not THE best soft serve ice cream I’ve ever had. They have so many quirky topping like cotton candy and popcorn, and you get so much served to you for what you pay for. I definitely recommend it if your in or around London. Here’s a couple of snaps from my most recent visit with my parents.

Bristol

took a quick day trip to Bristol and fell in love.. here are some things I saw there

I’ve never been to Bristol before this, and didn’t really know what to expect. It was suck a laid back and genuinely cool place and I loved the difference in the vibe compared to London. It was full of creative art and skateboarders all over town. Below are some of the places I explored!

The Market

loved this OOTD!

Today we walked down to Shepherd Bush market during class and took some experimental shots for a project we’ve been working on. So I used this time to create a little outfit of the day post for you all. I actually felt so good in this outfit and loved wearing it (until my feet started hurting later in the day).
