Editorial Fashion: Quarantine Style

Editorial fashion has always been a source of my inspiration, its raw, a fantasy and triggers passion. Since I was a little girl I was always in awe at high fashion ads in Vogue, every look was more impressive than the next. The reality is we’re not all walking around in editorial fashion 24/7 – we’re human. Who doesn’t love a good pair of loungewear or to throw on jeans and a tee? Every now and then I become inspired to get dressed up. Where am I going in these outfits? 

Probably to go pick up a pizza.

Mind. Fashion. Beauty

You might be wondering why the name change? To be honest when I first started this blog I was so deep with my anxiety that I couldn’t decide on a cool name. I knew that I wanted it to be memorable and had a great story behind it. As my blog grew older and I began to explore more options of what could potentially become of this little old blog, I realized a few things.

  1. The name is a mouthful
  2. My indecision was my key niche 
  3. I was more than just fashion and style any more

Creating a Character for my Anxiety and Depression

By the title of this post, you are probably wondering what the hell am I talking about right? Let me explain this a bit before you think that I am absolutely insane. Whenever my anxiety is building up or has just arrived (always at the worst possible time) I often say to my friends “that damn bitch is back.” Before I tend to curl up into a ball and sit on my floor for a few hours feeling like absolute crap because of my anxiety, I realize how crazy these thoughts are and poke fun of myself for thinking these absolutely irrational thoughts. 

My humor has gotten me through the best of times and the worst of times in my life. To give a movie reference, I am like Carrie Bradshaw cracking a small joke after Mr. Big didn’t show up to their wedding. 

“Oh honey, you cracked a joke! Good for you.” Samantha Jones thank you for one of my favorite statements for my anxiety and depression.

Anxiety: Learning to just sit in it

My anxiety often can take over my day, my week, my month. Its exhausting to even recall when I’ve lived in those moments. You go to bed at night thinking “will this feeling still be here when I wake up?” and before you know it your alarm is going off and that feeling is still there. This is a battle that anyone with anxiety knows all too well. 

What I have learned to do over the years is to communicate how I feel in a sense where I’m giving someone an analogy to explain what mess is happening in my mind. Mental health is often brushed aside, your feelings are disputed and even those who you think would be there for you… are not.

March Wishlist

Given that February was a short month and a hell of a month at that. My wishlist is rather short because I was slowly purchasing things to make myself feel better. For March I’ve decided to put that focus into working out rather than items and maybe next month’s wishlist will be even more colorful and full of spring….

How I styled an Oversized Jacket

When I initially purchased this oversized plaid jacket from Zara I had no idea how was going to specifically wear it. I knew that it would probably look cute with leggings and be a statement jacket since it is an oversized red plaid jacket. Although I felt that it was specifically best for Fall, I really wanted to force its way into my winter wardrobe. 

How was I going to do that?

Amazon Look Under $50

Here is a great Amazon outfit for under $50! Yup, you read that right – this look cost me under $50. When I purchased this top and the faux leather skirt I wasn’t anticipating them to be part of the same outfit. And since I can’t make a decision I allowed my Instagram followers to decide for me…
