Game of Thrones High Fashion
I know this isn’t news to anyone, but there is this show called Game of Thrones…and it’s kind of a big deal. I recently just got sucked into the fictional world that is, the Seven Kingdoms, and I got to say, it’s a dark hole you don’t want to travel down if a.) you need to be even the slightest bit productive this summer, or b.) you don’t have a strong enough stomach to watch a horse be skinned for a good 5 minutes. 
One thing I did notice while listening to hours upon hours of British accents and sword blades clashing was that they have some sick coats on this show. But really, they are all awesome - donned with piles of fur and chains pretty much wherever they want. I would love to get my body in one of those bad boys, but then I realized, I totally could. 
The overcoat brand I work for Oba, definitely has coats that look like they were stolen right off the GOT set ( a set that’s probably in the middle of Burbank, CA and not really in the Seven Kingdoms thousands of miles from here). One in particular, the Teresa, which was inspired by Mother Teresa, looks very similar to Master Luwin’s glorified snuggie. With an attached scarf that can be worn a billion different ways (including over your head), the Teresa has multiple faces while still maintaning an elegant look. Check out the other ways you can wear the Teresa at Oba.asia. 
So, as a return to my bed and to the fictional lands of the North and South Kingdoms, I feel at ease knowing that when I close my laptop and the Targarians are no longer reality, I can still pretend I am a Stark lady in the Teresa.

Hey, Fancy seeing you here.
I know I haven’t posted on this blog in legit like 2 months, but it’s because I was pretty busy MOVING TO CHINA and all. Yup, that’s right. 
I am living in China. yup, right now. Cold, Hard, mainland China. and you know what? it’s been great. 
Besides the smog that I am pretty sure is causing me a slow death and the scooters that you or a newborn baby crossing the road couldn’t shake, China has been an amazing experience so far (and a cheap one at that). 
I didn’t just come to eat unlimited chow fan and dumplings, but rather to intern for a luxury outwear brand called Oba. (shameless plug here - visit their website at oba.asia)
I wanted to learn more about the fashion industry and that is definitely what is happening. As soon as I started, I was thrown into working two big events that Oba was a part of in the month of may. One was modeled after a little market with pop up shops, and the other was a huge scale runway show production with brand tents and food and booze for days. 
While I knew designing clothes was difficult and took a creative mind, I never fully understood all the other stuff that came along with it, like branding. I thought, if you’re stuff is good, people will know who you are. And Oba’s stuff is definitely good. WIth a line inspired solely by influential woman throughout history, with each coat telling their stories in the stitching, to chic reversable blazers that literally look like two different pieces, the designs that come out of this brand are incredible. I couldn’t understand why something with so much meaning was not being recognized on a larger scale. The reality is you have to fight to get your name out there, so friends, I ask that you help me.

I will be updating this blog more this summer with the crazy shanghai street style my eyes are still adjusting too, as well as more posts about some Oba coats specifically. seriously guys, outwear has never looked so good.

Summer Time and the living is easy…and hott! Finally got to break out this open-back Brandy shirt that’s been collecting lint balls in my closet all semester. It’s the first day of summer and finally in the upper 70’s!!
Paired with my dip-dyed DIY cut-off denim shorts, this was the perfect “move out day” attire. Though I did get a few stares at the local Starbucks, I am happy warm weather is back in my life…and also Brandy. Let’s not forget Brandy. 
Happy Friday!

The only thing getting me through this Thursday is my new studded denim shirt! I scored tis baby at the pacsun outlet in Palm Springs this weekend and couldn’t wait to get to work on making it my own. The only thing missing is a red bandana and I’m ready for the Fourth of July! 

This is one of the first times I wore my collar buttoned all the way up, but surprisingly, I felt less like urkle’s girlfriend than I thought! The silver necklace definitely gives any collared shirt a feminine look. 

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Where the wild things are. 

Ready for a day at the LACMA with my new nastygal cheetah print dress. The hot pink collar is the tiny touch needed to make this what would seem ordinary animal print dress into one of a kind! I will probably add some studs to the tips of the collar because let’s face it, I have a problem, but for now, it’s business on the top, jungle on the bottom ;)

Happy Saturday everyone!!

Today, I went to melrose trading post, a.k.a. Every hipster’s dream. It was a huge flea market in LA full of denim jackets and Pinterest furniture. 

Because I was overwhelmed with baggy sweaters upon sweaters, along with the grandpa smell that accompanied them, I didn’t end up purchasing any. I did buy a couple vintage frames and head scarves. 

Another item that was popular at melrose were leather bags, which I didn’t need to buy because I had my own. I brought back this newest addition to my wardrobe, a leather afghan bag, from home, and I absolutely love it! 

It’s rough exterior and weathered brown color is perfect with literally every casual outfit.

It’s time to travel!
Guam to California, once again, I must make the journey. 

Being from Guam, I’ve come to think of myself as an experienced traveler, picking up certain wardrobe traveling tips throughout my life, 3 of which I deem the most important… 

1. Dress warm. 
After sitting on a plane for Seven hours feeling cramped and hungry, the last thing you want is to be cold also. Do yourself a favor and keep that cute short sleeve cropped top packed away on the suitcase. 

2. Dress comfortable. Air travel is not the place for your 5 inch stilettos and a pair of your tightest jeans. Personally, I always go for leggings so I can put my feet up and move around in the huge amount of space I am given in an economy seat. (That was sarcastic for those of you who were wondering.)

3. Dress cute. 
You might think this is impossible after reading the two previous tips, but as long as you are wearing an air of confidence along with your oversized sorority crew neck or baggy cargo jeans, you’ll be walking around the airport like the next big thing. Plus, you never know who will be sitting next to you on the plane ;) 

Today’s flight outfit consists of…
BCBG sweater knit
Bar III leggings 
Steve Madden boots
Sock bun

*note* they will check your sockbun at security.

My first OOTD insta!
I should have started doing these sooner, but oh well, it’s never too late to start.
I found these Levi’s mom jeans at a thrift store for 5 bucks - cut em up and hemmed the bottom because with my thighs, the shredded look just doesn’t cut it. Afterwards, I made rips in the front with a screwdriver. NOTE: this works a lot better than scissors because a screwdriver isn’t as “clean” and comes out of the wash with that real ripped look. And if you know me, you know I love my studs, so of course, I added a little studded accent to the butt pockets. 
My shirt was a Large men’s Ruca shirt I bought at a thrift store for $2. I made it a cropped top with a tie in the front. A template for that is easy enough to find on Pinterest. Then I rolled the sleeves to a more feminine length and sewed a couple corners tight so they wouldn’t roll down in the wash. 
Also, rocking my new Steve Madden boots. love them.

These are my New Steve Madden Studded Combat boots I dropped $170 bucks for.
I needed them though. Not solely because of the studs, though that was a main reason, or the fact that I wouldn’t need to carry around pepper spray anymore because I could simply kick any perp in the balls and injure them greatly, but because my favorite pair of black boots that you would think were permanently glued to my feet, finally fell apart.
After the miles of cobbstone roads in Europe I walked with those boots, it was sad to see them go, but madame sirena forsees a great future for these new steve madden ones. 
Literally able to pair with almost any outfit - dressing up, dressing down. 
If you don’t have a pair of combat boots, I highly encourage you to invest in some. They’re the edge every woman needs in her wardrobe!

Today’s OOTD is all about that GOLD. If I were any more blinged out, I’d have grillz and be singing an auto tuned melody. Regardless, I decided to dress it up a bit for one of my last days home. 

You know the drill, places to go, people to see, eyes to blind with your bling….wait, maybe that third part isn’t right… Oh well! 

A crazy barbadian once said, “Shine bright like a diamond?”
- oh, I intend to ;)
