FEATURE: Trilodee Summer Website

My lovely #StyleBunch,

How goes it?

Over these past few weeks, I have came to the conclusion of taking part in any opportunity. Not for exposure per se, but just for fun and experience. A friend of mines, Domonique, or as I love to call her 'Dom Diva', brought a fun opportunity my way. She owns her own fashion line and company called Trilodee.

She posted a photo via Instagram calling all of her custom works for a special photo shoot.

Now two years ago, I asked Dom to help me out with a birthday outfit. I wanted a double split skirt made especially for me. She made it and I was in love. Still am, don't get it wrong but I haven't had the chance to wear my skirt in a while. When I saw the post, it was an automatic 'YES'  because not only would I be able to do something for her in return but hello, I get to wear my skirt again (LOL). I don't get to go out that much so of course I would. I was so excited but nervous because this would be my first photo shoot, ever. Yes, a rookie I am! I'm so happy I took on the chance.

It was so much fun and I even got to see a few old friends. Dom is beyond talented and just by looking at the other works she has done, it's no secret that this is her passion. I still can't thank her enough for my skirt, the experience, and also just being a positive influence as well.

Don't forget to check out her work at Trilodee.com

Here's a preview of a few shots:

A little bit on the style: I wanted to go with something different because I always wore my skirt to the club. I wanted to bring out something different. I paired my skirt with an old crop top from ASOS for the simple or traditional aspect. I brought out my favorite red pumps for the POP. Then to set it off with my Old Navy army fatigue jacket for the 'dare' of it all. Loved it.

Stay Stylish!

OOTN: Western Chic, Yee-Haw!

Honestly what's more fun than a themed party. I haven't been to many but all of the ones I have been have been a time to remember!!

A good friend of mines graduated from UCLA and had a Western themed graduation party. Sounds like fun, right? Of course passing up the fun was totally out of the question. Plus, I haven't seen my friend in so long. 

To be honest, I've never been to a western themed party but I have seen some western movies. Clearly, that's my guide. Of course there are the essentials, cowboy boots and hat. I used to have the boots. Smart move, Britt *side eye to myself*. Now hats, I never thought about getting one. I didn't plan on spending much money either.

Shorts were a must. The heat was not going to get the best of me by wearing jeans . I also had booties that I knew would something off. Lately I've caught myself wearing thin headbands and since I couldn't get a hat, I thought that would be a good alternative especially with the long hair. I called it my "Cowboy-Indian" look, LOL. Lastly, my shirt. Remember I told you about me going crazy insane at the H&M clearance sale. I thank the sale for pulling off the entire look !! 

Shirt & Headband: H&M (Clearance)
Shoes: Target (Old)
Shorts: Old Navy
PS. Congrats Ari Sweetheart! <3

OOTD: Times Three

I don't know why but when I dress and feel I look older or more mature, I'm at my best. I'm not even sure where I get that from. Not to diss myself though of course. This past weekend I was too much, LOL. 

I went to a convention with my family. Being a religious event, there's a certain way to dress. You know how I get when I'm under pressure by now. I feel there is nothing to save me. I've been working so much I really didn't even take the time to think about it. Not to mention that's three outfits. It was very real!

It all started on Friday. All I wanted was comfort. I just threw pieces together and said 'there it is'. Easy Peezy Lemon Squeezy! 

I was probably more worried about my hair. SWEAT was my worse enemy for the entire weekend. I would a good job then all of a sudden I would feel sweat. I got to the point where I didn't want to even move, LOL. 

All in all, it was a very wonderful weekend. Great outfits, amazing words of encouragement, and great vibes. What more is there to ask for?

Enjoy the rest of your week, Style Bunch!
