This past Saturday (4/18/15) I was at the Midtown Farmers Market with my plum (aka little sister). Scouting cool styles. If you weren't there you totally missed out! Seriously. The amount of cool style in Sacramento is bananas. Unique, eclectic, trending, hip.
It's not any ordinary farmers market where you go pick up your veggies, eggs, fruits, flowers, etc. and go home. No! Midtown's Farmers Market is different, special. It's located in a fantastic area (between J and K, on 20th st) one of the busiest areas in midtown. Lots of amazing restaurants and shops surrounding the market. At the market you have wonderful vendors with amazing produce, there's a play area, bike valet, sweet eats, music, sitting areas. I mean it's literally a social gathering more so than a farmers market.
And don't worry if you didn't make it out this weekend, the market happens every Saturday!
Graffiti walls are usually not my jam. I mean, sure they were super cool when blogging was booming. But it seemed so cliche. EVERYONE was doing it. I tired to stay away. But I figured it's been a long time coming. Plus this particular section of midtown had some pretty rad looking writing.
Gaucho pants...get them. Consider them your cool staple in your closet. Seriously, they will elevate your look. If you're scared or think you can't pull them off at least try them. Bring a bunch of tops with you to the fitting room (i.e crop tops, slim fitting) whatever you know will compliment your body type! Plus, honestly, jeans, they're awesome/perfect but every now and then- change is expected.
****Also, if you live in Sacramento, CA or surrounding areas come out and hang with me at the Midtown Farmers Market!!! This Saturday 4/18/15 located between J & K on 20th St. I'll be hanging out taking pictures of fashionable peeps. So bring your grandma, pets, neighbors, parents, friends, everyone- and dress cool...if you want. Wear your best cologne and/or perfume/body spray!
Hope to see lots of beautiful faces!!!

I've been in an absence from the blog because I haven't bought anything new in a long time. My closet feels basic, uninspiring, uninteresting, just a huge blahhhhhhh! Typically, I'm really good at reusing old clothes to create new/different looks. But even that wasn't coming to me. Like, I at least wanted something new to wear. So basically, I've been a struggle.
Lucky, I have my blogger bud who constantly pushes me (love her!) aka gave me a day notice to get ready! I was in a time crunch and had been starring at my closet for a solid 30 minutes. Finally I decided to move over and pick through my boyfriend's side. I picked my favorite piece, his "abuelo" (grandpa) sweater. So cozy and oversized, perfect for the kinda gloomy/ windy day we were having!
You know, recently, bras have became an obsession. Literally. Never have I cared for bras. Don't have boobs (well, tiny ones), so I never really cared for them. They just seemed so unnecessary, until recently. All I want to do is buy cool bras and wear button ups unbutton real low. And it doesn't even matter -for me- because my boobs are small, so it looks totally appropriate.
Anyway, here is a little guide on my must haves or the coolest ones:
Top Row: The Nude Label, MSGM, Love & Lemons
Middle Row: Calvin Klein, Free People, Topshop
Bottom Row: Cosabella, Samantha Chang, Victoria Secret
Here I am! Exposing my short, minion, untanned legs.
But totally necessary. I've been wanting to buy a pair of One Teaspoon's since...FOREVER. I didn't make any moves. According to lots of peeps they fit like underwear and girls with butts cant wear them. So, automatically I gave up hope on owning a pair, you know, since I have a big-o-butt.
A few days ago I experienced one of the biggest let-downs of my life. My favorite local boutique, Madam Butterfly, started carrying One Teaspoon! I could finally try them in real life. And guess what? They fit. Apparently my ass is small. All this time I considered myself the very least a JLo type. Nope! More like a...idk a celebrity with a small butt. Sad, right? Depressing! Better believe I squat whenever the opportunity arises; washing dishes, folding socks, while doing absolutely nothing at all. SQUAT!
However, this isn't about my butt. It's about finally owning something I've been wanting! And how prefect they are and how I want them in every single color in the exact same style. Like the black w/ rose gold buttons! Mind Blown.
My advice for you; if you want something- just go for it. At least try it. Even if it means you have to up a size or look foolish or hurt your own feelings. Give yourself a chance.
