LUSHoween haul 2014

Style Icon: EMIKA

For a change of pace, I decided to start up a new written segment about some of my favorite Style Icons.
I'll be kicking things off with one of my more recent lady loves, Emika. Emika (aka Emma Jolly) is a Czech babe who makes some of the most beautifully haunting electronic music I've ever heard. She currently is residing in Berlin and has two albums under her belt, her self titled album Emika in 2011 and the second 2013's DVA. I love her not only because of her bold beats but also for her bold style.
Emika is  bold chick who is always taking risks. Her outfits in her music videos are always playing with light and dark concepts a Emika has a signature intense make-up look, she is always playing with intense black shadows and vivid red lips.  

Professional Loving:
2011



Emika provides the perfect music for getting in the fall mood!

OOTD: Santa Ana Art Walk

Outfit Of The Day Details:
Dress: Xhillaration @ Target
Shoes: Buckle Boots @ Forever 21
Black Leather Backpack: Vintage
Green Jacket (pictured below): Army Surplus

Last Saturday I went to down town Santa Ana's Art Walk with my beau, met up with his cousins and watched Repeated Measures play. The gig was at a vintage store which had a Studio Ghibli Themed Art installation up. The pieces were fantastic, lots of Totoro and some Mononoke Hime (which is my FAVORITE Ghibli movie of all time!). There was even these really cute Pokemon brushes with characters painted on the back but I sucessfully stopped myself from buying the Vulpix one because I do not need a fourth brush for my hair.
I pieced together this outfit because it was super humid during the day, so a dress is always easy to just chuck on and go. I paired this dress with my buckle boots to give it a more casual vibe (plus they're super comfy for strolling around town) and the black leather back pack to match. The jacket I threw on when the sun went down to keep warm.

Nail Art

I've always had a bad habit of biting my nails and to break myself out of the cycle I use fake nails. I bought a big pack of kiss nails, some nail glue and made some magic happen. I shaped the nails into an oval shape painted them this pretty iridescent icy blue with silver tips. If you have trouble biting your nails and want to grow out the real deal, this might be just the trick! It helps me entice myself into growing out my real nails and giving them a well deserved break from my bad habit.
