BOOKMARKED! #2

School has started and I'm way beyond busy now! I have yet to work out the kinks of my routine yet, but I promise there will be an outfit post soon! For those who are interested, I am a Clothing & Textiles major working to get my A.A. If there's some awesome projects that I'm doing, I would love to post them on here to give those a glimpse of what the classes projects consist of. Anywho, that's my life update!

Here are my recent discoveries that I've bookmarked! Tell me your favs!
NYLONshop Favorites
I know all of us are no noobs when it comes to the stylish Nylon Mag, but have you actually looked at their shop? NYLONshop carries all your favorite brands on one website! It's the best way to discover new, upcoming, and independent brands and boutiques. Seriously, I'm in love!

YOUNG HUNGRY FREE FAVS
Young Hungry Free is a boutique based in Singapore that carries goth-like clothing to the bare basics. What really caught my eye was that almost everything on the website is trendy like the monochrome look as well as minimalistic. Definitely bookmark them if you're down with the monochrome-goth style!
FRONTROWSHOP FAVORITES
Front Row Shop is an online retailer from Shanghai that carries fashionable products from clothes to shoes. Carrying many trendy clothes, you can be "front row" of this online fashion show to be in the know and VIP.


ACCESSORY CONCIERGE FAVS
Accessory Concierge was started by two Dallas girls who met early in their corporate jobs. They had an awesome idea to start doing flash sales on their Facebook page, which sold out instantly, thus Accessory Concierge was borned. They still do these sales if you're interested. It's every Monday & Wednesday at 8pm!

Did you guys catch the pattern of my favorite picks? Yeah, they're all monochrome pieces with boho jewelry. Odd mix? No such thing! lol. I have to say that I'm obsessed with Front Row Shop (as you can tell). You definitely have to bookmark that online store! Until next time!

AMI CLUBWEAR X ALEXISSPLASH


AMI Clubwear is a women's clothing shop located in Southern California that carry trendy, fashion-forward clothing, killer shoes, and amazing accessories. AMI Clubwear was kind enough to let me choose anything, literally, anything from their website to style here on my blog. Below, I chose to style these Denim Distressed Overalls and Shaggy Faux Fur Mini Tote Handbag.

Phone Case: eBay

 The Denim Overalls is 100% polyester and totally essential for every girl for this summer and next. The distressed details gives it an grungy look and what works well with grunge other than the color black?! I've been having a weird love for pairing distressed denim with all things black (if you haven't noticed in the Boyfriend Jeans post lol ). It just works to so well together! I paired it with MeUndies lightweight Rawk Tank (not going to lie, it's great for showing off skin, which I like to do but in a subtle way, ya know?), Image's crochet bralette, Steve Madden's chunky Schoolz Sandals, and of course the fun Faux Fur Mini Tote Handbag, which I'm in love with! I love all things faux fur because it adds such an oomf to the outfit. The bag came with an adjustable strap, which I like to wear mine pretty long because I'm too lazy to hold it by the handle lol. It's pretty spacy and I can actually fit my camera in it! Say hello to my new stylish camera bag!

SPICY AVENUE'S BREEZE BOXY DRESS

This is probably the shortest post I have ever made for this blog. Due to working and the heat, I have beyond tired and lazy to do anything. I literally woke up from a nap, put on this dress, and started taking photos. The lighting was not right and I felt horribly sticky from the heat. *sigh* I want to continue complaining about the heat, but it wouldn't do me any good. Must think of swimming pools and ice creams, and awesome breezy dresses.



Boots: eBay

Thank god for Spicy Avenue's Breeze Boxy Dress. I guess you can say it's the best thing besides practically being naked. It's 100% cotton aka perfect for the summer heat! I'm not going to lie, it was a challenged to style this dress. When I first put it on, I looked like I belonged in the hospital due to the oversized look. But once I put on my tawny boots, it didn't look bad at all. Somehow I embraced the boxy cut of the dress where it doesn't look overbearing. Think I did a good job? How would you style the Breeze Boxy Dress? Let me know!

SPICY AVENUE X ALEXISSPLASH

I'm so glad to work with awesome brands thanks to Chictopia Connect. If you're a blogger/brand looking to connect with fashion brands/bloggers, sign up for Chictopia Connect! You won't be disappointed! 

Thanks to Chictopia Connect, I was able to work with Spicy Avenue, an online boutique that carries trendy Korean fashion and delivers to you in a short amount of time worldwide with $15 for shipping. Literally, I received my package in 3 days all the way from Korea! Not to mention that their items are super affordable! I was able to pick items to my liking and got Spicy Avenue's Breeze Boxy Dress and Vintage Denim Pants. Today I styled the Vintage Denim Pants!

Tank Top: Vintage,

Is there such thing as being casually sexy? Because that's how I feel wearing Spicy Avenue's Vintage Denim Pants with this Crochet Bralette. The vintage pants only come in a medium or large to give it that oversized boyfriend jeans look. They're super comfortable, and I kinda wore them to work two times in a row! (Sorry if that goes against all fashion rules, lol)

I paired the pants with a casual loose top with the crochet bralette underneath to give an illusion of a deep v-cut. And to dress up the look a bit, I wore my AMIClubwear One Shoulder Body Chain I got today (haul coming soon!) and of course my Joni Wide Brim Hat. Hope you like the look! I have one more item to style from Spicy Avenue! By the way, did you catch the photo of me holding Gucci, the new family member? lol

RECENT DISCOVERIES #1

LIFE UPDATE: Sorry for the absence. I've been busy with work and getting ready for school. (Dude, Wal-Mart has the best school deals ever!) I'm taking my driver's written test next week. Hopefully I past! I also have my fast food coupons ready because I know I'm going to need them as soon as school starts lol. Talk about being prepared, right?

I thought it would be great to share some new online stores that I discovered when I'm online window-shopping. Fun fact, this blog first name was "Window-Shopper" or something like that and was actually supposed to be about gems that I find online since I was too (still) broke to purchase anything. Down below I posted my favorite items from each store using Polyvore!

ARK CLOTHING
Ark Clothing was created in the UK by three lovers of music, fashion and the 90's rave scene. They opened up a shop to sell tickets for raves, started creating their own brand ( Cloak and Hearts & Bows ) and became apart of the Leed's fashion scene while finding great underground brands to stock up their store. Eventually they would have 7 stores open up and hold great brands in them such as Cheap Monday, Motel, and The Ragged Priest to name a few. They're always first in bringing us the biggest trends!

1. Hearts and Bows Anna Striped Co-ord Top and Skirt
2. Ark Kai Sunflower Print Blouse
3. Hearts and Bows Paula Boyfriend Jeans
4. Hearts and Bows Black Fuchsia & Blue Hippy Top and Shorts
5. Hearts and Bows Lyddia Black & White Gingham Top and Shorts
6. Ark Black Tish Platform Boots


DARKPINK
I can't really tell you much about Dark Pink besides that their basic wear is ah-mazing! If you didn't notice, I'm obsessed with triangle bralettes and have been eyeing them for weeks now. I can't wait to dress them down for Fall (if I ever get one)!

1. Black Lace Trim Deep V Dress

2020AVE
Okay, I'm not going to lie. I've known about 2020ave 4-eva now! (Am I getting on your nerves yet?) But lets face it, they have the best deals! If you don't know about 2020ave, here's the breakdown. 2020ave is an online women's boutique (of course) based out of LA and carry trendy unique pieces that every gal drools over. Like the way I said.... typed that? lol. 

1. Golden Chain Arm Bracelet
2. Hot Lips Halter Bodysuit 
3. Tie Dye Shorts
4. Striped Flare Pants
5. Lush Clothing Oversized Lightweight Coat 
6. Rehab Clothing Double Strap Floral Bralette

I hoped you guys enjoyed the sets and bookmarked these stores. You might catch a great sell going on soon! Which were your favorite stores/items? Let me know!
