Summer Sale Fashion Haul

Upon going through everything I bought, I realized that I didn't really buy anything summery... I didn't really shop with a goal in mind, so these are pretty much all impulse buys that I found good deals on!

I MADE A VIDEO. Obviously I need a lot more practice in front of a camera, so bear with me. It's so funny because the first two pieces I got were the neon pink sweater from H&M and the Brandy Melville muscle tee, and the next day I recorded a little video of me talking about them with my webcam - that video was 7 minutes long! I was wearing glasses and no makeup and recorded it in the morning right after I ate breakfast in one take. It's pretty interesting to note the differences in my comfortability since, when I set up my tripod and went to film this video, I stumbled over my words so many times before there was a decent take.

Anywho, here are some photos of what I got since I did a horrible job of showing you in the video lol. Apologies for the weird coloring in the sweaters and lace tops pics - I edited them to try to give an accurate representation of the colors of the clothes.

Just a quick post of my current nails - coral has got to be my favorite summer lip and nail color! I'm wearing American Apparel's Neon Red with China Glaze's Snow Globe on my ring finger.

Hot pot is so good *_* Went out for lunch with two of my favorite girls, Jojo and Kelly :) They're always so supportive of me being a fashion enthusiast, and I really appreciate it. Shout out to you guys! I love you ♡ ♡ Jo made me that collage - it says "SoCal will miss you Alli" - and it's honestly the sweetest thing anyone's done for me! It was so random (well, I mean I still have a month before I leave) and really touching T_T thank you again :)


oops, i did it again

I need to stop buying clothes... here's a quick post on what I just ordered online from Cotton On!
I love Cotton On, but it's a hit or miss for me. A few years ago, it quickly became one of my favorite stores, but I haven't bought much from there recently because I haven't been impressed with their selection and quality of items. One thing that sucks about their return policy is that if you buy something online, you can't return it to the store - meaning, you have to pay to ship it back if you want a refund. That's a huge deterrent for me, so I usually never order online from them. Today is an exception, though, because I ordered things either cheap enough that I wouldn't regret it, or things I'd already seen in store.

  • It's hard to tell in the photo, but the top left item is a black waffle knit sweater. I actually already purchased it regular price from the store and am going to return it because I got it for 30% off online :) I try to look for sweaters with cotton in them because they tend to be a bit better quality than the all acrylic ones... let's just hope this one doesn't get snagged too badly like my sweaters always tend to do -_-
  • The only thing I'm worried about are the boots because the quality of Cotton On's shoes aren't too great. Hopefully I can work something out - I couldn't pass them up for the price! I've been dying for a pair of the Sam Edelman Petty's since last fall. 
  • The socks were an impulse buy (well, technically this entire order was), but I figured I couldn't go wrong with three pairs for $1.
  • As for the circle skirts, I really don't need them, but I love the silhouette and don't own any! I thought the striped one was toooo cute. Love how the lines go in different directions.

Hey, guys, I've just really missed blogging lately and wanted to share some pretty pictures to show what I've been into lately. I realize I've barely touched this blog all year - I was just so busy with school, work, and all of the end of high school activities. Yup, I'll be starting college this fall (well, technically August)! So unfortunately that means I probably won't be able to post anything when school starts again :( but honestly I have been doing nothing this summer. Hope to see you soon! :)
