1994

   Summer is finally coming to an end soon and that means back to school for the Fall semester. This will be my second year of college and I'm pretty excited to attend Santa Monica College! I'm pursing a career in Fashion/Visual Merchandising. Any of you guys starting school or already started school? Tell me what you guys are pursuing a career!  

Cat Denim Jacket: UNIF 
Shorts: Thrifted

 This whole look was based around 90's for the Steve Madden x Nordstrom contest that I found out from Eugenie from Feral Creature! I think I was going for a total 90's valley girl because in all honesty, that's what I am at heart. You can peep my Pinterest to see where I got my 90'a inspiration from. Now for the look, I based it all around denim and funky designs. I wore some thrifted high-waisted shorts and a crop top from AMIClubwear, with my UNIF jacket. To finish off the outfit, of course I had to wear my all time favorite Steve Madden chunky sandals. Is this not screaming 90's to you? lol. 

   Want to join the 90's fun? Show your best 90's look for a chance to win a trip to NYC to hangout with Steve Madden himself! Post your look on Instagram with hashtag #SMxNordstrom to enter. The top interpretations will be featured on Nordstrom.com. Let me know if you guys are going to entered so I can be on the look out! Can't wait to see!

WITCHY VIBES

   I'm getting the hang of everything all over again! Thank you everyone who has been supporting me throughout the year! I don't know how long I've been doing this but I have made a lot of online friends doing so. Just a little reminder that nothing gets the job done but you. Give it all of your 10000% and things will get better. Trust me, I know it's easier said then done. I've gone through periods of time where I would just be depressed and not want to do anything at all. Life happens all the time and sometimes you just have to punch it in the face and let them know that you're here to stay. That's enough ranting for now, lol. I'm not good at giving advice at all lol.

   My Nasty Gal bodysuit has been sitting in the closet for over 2 months and to be honest, that's not acceptable at all. The last time I wore it was the first blogpost I introduced here. I wanted to style it different so I decided to go with more of a. edgy boho feel. I paired it with a basic H&M taupe skirt, fringe booties, and my Deandri Beltspenders-Harness to spice things up. I'm totally getting witchy vibes from this look!

ANKIT ELEPHANT TAPESTRY

   Surprise! I'm back with another post! Wasn't expecting that, were you? Well I'm back and ready to kick some ass! lol. 




   Thanks to Chictopia Connect, I was able to collaborate with an amazing company called Ankit! Ankit is a fashion design house that designs cool fashion accessories for you and your home. They collab with big companies such as Anthropolgie, Forever 21, Nasty Gal, and Zumiez, just to name a few out of many. They were so kind to let me choose an item from their website and let me tell ya, it was so difficult to choose! One reason is that there is too many cool designs and gadgets. The second reason was that tons of items were already sold out!

When I saw this Elephant Tapestry, I instantly fell in love with it! I really love the combination of the colors. They're so vibrant and then there's designs of elephants which are so damn cute! Here are some of my other favorites from Ankit.

MINIMALISTICALLY EDGY

   Hi friends! It's been so long and I can honestly I miss being on this platform so much! I finally got a camera in the house and ready to shoot so many outfits and catch up on some projects and collaborations. Hope all is great with you guys. I moved into the Santa Monica area and just finished my first Summer semester at Santa Monica College. I took a Dance History class with my cousin/best friend Stasi, which was a very fun experience. Now I have the rest of the summer to catch up with my social life and to achieve some goals of mine. How's everyone summer going so far? Get me in the loop of what I've been missing these past couple of months! ♡

Boho Dress: Hand-me-down
Ankle Boots: H&M ( similar )
Necklace c/o Crystals & Casings

   I've been in such a simple mood lately that all I pretty much where are minimalistic pieces like this bell-sleeve dress. But of course, I always have to edge it up a bit by wearing my Salem Bra and booties. Minimal & edgy, right? 

   I'm not going to lie, I've been thinking about dyeing my hair back to brown or maybe black. This blonde hair is very challenging to style. I mean, a challenge is always fun, right? Well I think I've somewhat overcame it.....maybe, lol. Let me know what you guys think because I'm torn from choosing blonde or another color. I'm all for suggestions! ♡

BAD TO THE BONE

   Hi friends! Hope you guys aren't suffering heat strokes like I am today. I literally just want to go to the beach and attempt to go swimming (a.k.a just dip my feet in the water). Well I have good news and bad news. Good news, I'm leaving off to my new home in Santa Monica! Bad news, I won't have a camera for awhile so I don't know what my blogpost consistency will be like. I'm pretty bummed about that, but I promise I'll save up fast to get a camera soon. From now on, follow my Instagram and Snapchat, yeah? @AlexisSplash 

I'm making this nice and short because I haven't packed anything and I'm leaving tomorrow morning.

All eyes on the Nasty Gal bodysuit, please. Yes, let it sink into your eyes and soul because this is the best thing  I have in my wardrobe right now! I first saw the bodysuit on Erica Lavelanet of The Fashion Philosophy and instantly fell in love! When I went to go buy it, it was already sold out! So I waited, and waited, and waited. Until it finally came back in-stock! I purchased it in a size small, which ended up being a little bit big around the arms. It does fit true to size, I just bought mine in the wrong size. I made a giant sacrifice and sold my favorite UNIF jacket on my Depop just so I can buy this bodysuit. Am I a little salty about it? yes. Do I regret it? never.  Unfortunately, the bodysuit is already sold out and I haven't found anything similar. You can always request to get an email to notify you when it restocks.    

   Of course, I'm in this "All Black" phase right now and I'm really trying to get out of it. I promise next blogpost will consist of color. Pinky promise. By the way, I apologize that I always leave my stupid scrunchie on during my shoots. It's just a horrible habit of always having it on incase of a hair-emergency.
