American Rebel

First off, a big thank you to Thrift Store Runway! I entered this outfit into their monthly contest and ended up being one of the five winners! Check it out here! I'm so happy and thankful!

These cute little shorts I made myself! I am obsessed with the american flag apparel out in stores but I'm not a fan of the price tag so I made these little bad boys myself! I went to Goodwill and found a pair of old jeans so I could cut them up then went to the dollar store and bought a little flag. Then I called all my girls over and we did all our DIY projects together! It was so much fun! A shout out to my friend Christy  for her amazing sewing abilities, Thanks love!

5.Thank the person that nominated you and link back to their blog.

11 Things you must know about MiMi

1. I have a stutter but for the most part people don't notice it and when they do I just smile and say I have a stutter so they know not to make fun. 

2. I have a beautiful, talented, and amazing twin sister and I love with all my heart! She is my best friend and sister. 

3. I curse like a sailor not because I don't have a good vocabulary but because I enjoy cursing. I know its not ladylike but I find it fun!

4. I love dancing and I'm constantly dancing or singing! I love to preform so my life is always a show and you know what they say, the show must go on! 

5. I'm very competitive! I was told that I'm a sore loser and even worst winner but I don't think I'm that bad.

6. I am OBSESSED with kitty cats but have no desire to actually own a cat. I like the funny pictures and their behaviors but the cat hair or the kitty litter kills it for me. 

7.It is my dream to be a Disney Princess! I'm just too short (5 foot) to be any princess but Tink and I would love to be Jasmine or Snow White. 

8. I work full time and go to school full time so this blog is my little escape from reality.

9. No one ever calls me MiMi in real life. 

10. It kills me to get out of bed before ten but I can't stand to be in bed after 11:30. I am a night owl forever and always.  

11. I am addicted to social media and constantly on my phone on either Instagram or Pinterest.

 Easmin's Questions

1. Describe yourself in 5 words? 
Sarcastic. Goofy. Blunt. Moody. Passionate. 

2.If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? 
New York! But I really do hate the cold and have never seen snow so California is more ideal climate wise.

3.Who inspire's you? 
That's a tough question because there is no one thing that inspires me. I get inspired by the amazing people I follow on Instagram, the wonderful people in my life, and myself.  I can find something inspirational anywhere!

4.Whats your favorite brand of cosmetics?
I'm not a big make up girl so I don't know much about the different brands but I enjoy my Mac make up for the most part.

5.What can you not do without on a daily basis? 
Social Media. I start going through withdrawals if its been too long.
6.What is your favorite movie? 
How the Grinch stole Christmas: Jim Carry. I quote that movie at least once a day, it is absolutely amazing!

7.What does your blog say about you?
I have no clue! You tell me cause I don't know but I hope it says that you don't need to be rich to look amazing and its the confidence that makes the outfit.

8.Describe your personal style?
Statement! I love statement pieces because they give so much personality and I like my outside to match my inside.
9.What is you addiction?
Besides social media...Food! I love going out to dinner and trying new restaurants and just enjoying food.
10.Are you a pessimist or an optimist?
Pessimist but I'm trying so hard to be less of one! Its one of the things that I'm really trying to impove about myself.

11.Where do you see yourself in ten years?
Hopefully in New York or California working in the fashion world but if not is a cute little loft in big city with my sissy enjoying our young adult life together.

Aztec Warrior

Okay so I have very big legs and thought I could never pull off a tribal print legging but I saw them at an amazing deal (70% off clearance!!) and decided to try them on and voila! They didn't look bad all, in fact they looked pretty darn cute! Its really all about trying stuff on. I tell most women to just try it on and if you hate it, you hate it! Who cares?! At least if you tried it on you know for a fact it doesn't look good instead of just assuming it wont it. And who knows it might look amazing on you, you will never know unless you try it on! 

That jean vest was really an old jean jacket that didn't fit me anymore so what I did was found some gold studs and put them on the front and on the back of the jacket then cut off the sleeves. After I found that gold tiger iron-on press at Micheal's for 10 bucks and put it on the back of the vest for a finished look. You don't always have to go to Goodwill to find DIY projects sometimes they are right in your own closets! 

Jean vest: DIY $15
Leggings: Pacsun (Feb. 2013) $9
Shoes: Target (Aug. 2012) $35  [Also shown in Western Wear]
Necklace: Charlotterusse (Feb. 2013) $13
Tank: Forever21 (Old) $5

Total: $77

Pretty in jean

The jean shirt, how do you wear it? Well I love my jean shirt and always find new wears to wear it, to me it is a staple piece to every wardrobe. This is just one way to wear it, I  say that a jean shirt is a good way to casualize an outfit so if you are going to wear a bold bottom it would be ideal to wear a jean shirt to balance out the print or bright color. Unfortunately they do not come that cheap, I found some for as high as $50 dollars but if you shop smart (Shopping rules) you can find them at a much cheaper price. I found mine at Goodwill for $8 bucks! Goodwill always replenish their stock but on Friday is when I find the best stuff because they are getting ready for the weekend.  

Shirt: Goodwill $8
Pants: Stylesforless $25
Belt: Goodwill $2
Boots: G by Guess $40

Total: $75
