I'm not a big fan of bright color. My normal wardrobe is black on black or denim with darker tones or neutrals. I really would like to add some pastels to my collection though to brighten and soften things up a bit. Some colors I really like are peach and mint. I really like the way peach looks with my skin tone. It's bright and warming without being too overpowering. And mint is one of my favorite colors! I don't really have any white shirts or light colored shirts either so that would be nice to have. I tend to steer from light shirts because I cannot control how much I sweat and that a) is gross, and b) ruins light colored clothing. However a nice dolman sleeve top can remedy this. :)
High waisted high waisted high waisted. My favorite trend ever. I have a very defined hourglass figure (37-26-40) so I love showing off my tiny waist. I hated the low rise trend with a passion and it was awful trying to find anything but when I was in middle/high school. I'm glad this trend is back to stay. I also am a big fan of 90's fashion. I love denim and have been dying for a denim jacket or collared shirt for a long while. It was grungy and I love the crop top trend paired with high waisted bottoms.
I first saw the Laura Mercier lip stain while reading a blog post from Keiko Lynn and I fell in love with the rosy, pink color. I have been lusting for it for a while but just never got around to buying it/asking for it. Same with the watch necklace. I think it's a cute, whimsical little accessory that is also very practical! I don't like wearing accessories much since I feel like they just get in the way so something like this would be a good thing to own! I always use this one green purse my parents bought for a me a few years back, and it's nice to have but it sometimes gets in the way when I'm walking around with my boyfriend. I think this denim backpack has a nice grungy feel to it and can hold a lot. Plus it would be easy to sling around my back and have it out of the way.
I love wedges so much (so much so I got some shipped straight from Canada lol) and I want to expand my collection. I have mostly black heels I never wear so I want to add some color to my shoe collection. I also would like another pair of nice brown boots. I really like the Forever 21 pair I own. Flat boots are so comfy but stylish!
I hope you like my picks! Tell me what trends you are looking forward to trying this coming season.

Oh dear god what is that thing
Here you go Kirsten you asked for it. This is what I look like when I wake up. Photoshop told me I was that pale ;-;Guess what I had for lunch today? Protein+Animal style, no cheese, always.
OH let's have a looksies at my room. You can see in the second photo a quarter of the amount of clothes I still need to photograph and put up for sale somewhere.
Basically I've been getting over being sick this whole past week. I went to a rave last Saturday I was stuck in the rain for about an hour trying to get in even though I had already purchased my ticket! It wasn't so bad though, I actually had a lot of fun! But I don't enjoy the 102 fever (worst night ever ;-; )and disgusting cough that still haunts me.
My classes are going pretty well. I already have some friends and my teachers are all good. It really helps to use ratemyprofessors.com before you sign up for classes! I have a mythology class, math, photography and human studies class. I wish I had the time to take a PE but I am already running around between campuses. I'll just have to get my exercise from running around outside.

What do you think of the new hair? Thought I'd come into the new year with a bang. ;)
Don't fret though, it's only a wig! This is my Utena wig that I still need to style. It's so soft and lovely~
I drove 2 hours away just to get this sweater. I fell in love with it but my local store didn't carry my size, so I called every store in the bay area until I found it! It's so cozy and warm.
gold rings, sweater, and shorts from H&M
tights from asos.com
glasses from proopticals.com
boots were thrifted
These lovely glasses are from my sponsor, proopticals.com. The pink color sort of washes me out, but they matched my wig so nicely! Plus they would be fun to wear to a rave. :P
I hope you are all having a great new year so far!
