283 / FFFWEEK FINALE: QRISTYL FRAZIER




384 / checking in…

I haven’t forgotten about this blog, I’ve just been super busy lately. Hopefully things will calm down soon and I’ll have more time to update! The good news is that I’ve started shopping for summer ’12 so I’ll have stuff to post soon! I can say that it’s all about bustiers this summer, word to Selena. Also, a new hair color will be debuted soon, I’m really excited!

If you want to somewhat see what I’m up to, you can follow my Tumblr: xtinathegreat.

That’s it for me, I hope everyone is doing good!




383 / ootd: zig-a-zig-ahhh

(Hopefully everyone got and appreciated the Spice Girls reference that is the title of the post.)

I usually don’t update during the week but I really liked this outfit so I snapped a quick photo after I got home from work. Both the long sleeve printed dress and the racerback black dress over it are from ASOS (size uk18). I put my faux leather vest from Forever21 over it and wore the metallic blue skinny belt from ASOS Curve.

Sidenote: I have such shitty lighting in my apartment so that’s why it’s in black and white.

Also since we last chatted, I got a few new tattoos!

Details.
black dress, printed dress, belt – asos
vest – forever21
tights – avenue
pin – indiegoespop
wedges (not shown) – juicy couture




382 / during the week…

Since I’m usually too busy during the week to take photos of anything I wear, I tend to rely on good ol’ Photobooth to take snapshots of my day-to-day looks. Granted you can’t see the entire look but ya know, something is better than nothing right? Basically this post shows how terrible I look everyday at work haha. Happy Friday everyone!




381 / ootd: weekend carma

In a recent post I mentioned that I placed my first Carmakoma order since they were having their big end-of-the-season sale. Since arriving, I’ve been wearing the dresses nonstop as they serve as great throw-on-and-go pieces (I’m sure everyone knows by now just how much I hate mornings). This dress is the Gull and I bought it in an XL but I should’ve sized down to an L for a more fitted look. Because it’s too big and made of knit, it doesn’t really have a shape without a belt. However, I love love love the leather patches on the shoulder and the fact that it has a hood. The overall length is perfect and the fact that that back has an additional two inches or so added is great because it’s annoying to have the back of your skirt/dress be higher than the front because of all the junk in the trunk.

I paired the dress with my new favorite thigh-highs from Hips & Curves. They have a backseam which makes them that much better. Prepare to see them a lot.

380 / ootd: saddle up

If you follow me on Tumblr, you may have heard about my love of saddle shoes. Ever since Jeremy Scott sent down his rendition of them with a super chunky pink heel, I have been needing to get my hand on a pair. So a week or so ago during a late-night texting session with Brittney, she linked me to these AMAZING Jeffrey Campbells which were everything I loved. I immediately purchased them and have been resisting the urge to wear them with everything. I even purchased the more practical version from Payless for those random trips to the store where 6 inch heels may be too much. The blazer is one I picked up from SimplyBe a long time ago and it had been sitting in my closet ever since. I had nothing to wear it with but now it goes perfectly with my new shoes!

379 / ootd: black, red + sheer

As usual, I went out for brunch today and used the opportunity to wear my black and red vinyl bra that I scored this past summer on eBay. I layered it under the sheer mesh dress from Hips & Curves and a sheer high waist skirt from Jibri. This outfit combines my love of sheer everything and vinyl anything, which is why fall/winter is my favorite time of the year.
