how do I count the ways?

these fashionistas made it easy for us to take our most basic wardrobe pieces and transform them 20+ ways...without having to use scissors.

let's face it, times have been tough and it's not likely for many of us to go shopping every other day like we used to. at least that's the case for myself. that said, I find it enthralling that bloggers, vloggers, social media-istas (I totally made that up) are posting videos that show us common folk how to wear our clothes multiple ways.

here are the best guides:

fly in style

airports. I have a love/hate relationship with them...with traveling in general.
tonight I finally set off to NYC again. it's bittersweet especially after spending more than a month back home. seeing my friends & family on a weekly basis makes it a bit hard moving back to the big apple where I'm practically alone.
I am excited for school to start up again. going back after completing my first semester of grad school is a weird feeling. I'm used to going back to LA after visiting home, not doing anything, working from home, yadda yadda.
I have no idea what to expect this semester and that's sort of what I'm worried about. more than dealing with the snow and ridiculously cold temperature. I got a pair of Hunter boots over the weekend so I'm sort of prepared, but barely. just wish me luck.

so that brings me to why I'm posting here...airport attire! I loathe dressing up for the airport. I remember the days in undergrad where I'd settle for sweats and uggs and call it a motherf***ing day. 
now that I'm in my 20's and actually feeling like an adult, I find the urge to dress a little less casual when I'm traveling.
of course, celebs always have to look their best on a day-to-day basis, what with paparazzi snapping their photos every 5 I always look to the stars to see what they're wearing to the airport and usually, I'm liking what Vanessa Hudgens & Nicole Richie sport while traveling

essentials: boots, good jacket, sunnies, jeans/leggings, giant carry-on purse

what is your go-to travel outfit? let me know in the comments!

vegas preparation

brb for a few days...I'm going to vegas!
this trip is long overdue. part of what I miss about living in cali is the accessibility to vegas. we don't have this kind of ish in the east coast.

(right) whatever makeup I managed to find in my parents' house
(left) you need your outfit options. I'm so indecisive so I brought three to choose from for 2 nights. again, what I managed to put together from my closet at home
(right) I'm not too big on accessories for vegas so a few rings will suffice

cheers to da freakin weekend
