sweater | EBAY   shorts | FOREVER 21   heels | ZARA
I had been wanting an American Apparel 3D Rosetta Sweater for a while now, but honestly I couldn't afford it (seriously! $85 for a sweater? no thanks!). 

So instead I went on my good old friend - eBay - and found a perfectly acceptable dupe of the American Apparel sweater. The quality isn't great but it will do since the sweater is not a piece that I will wear often. Also according to other bloggers that have the original sweater their sheds also so I'm happy with my "cheap" purchase. Hahahahaha...

Have you bought any clothing items on sale lately?

p.s: click on the EBAY link to find out the seller of the sweater.

Today is the first day of Autumn fashionistas! Are you excited?

Here in Florida it will take a while for true Fall  weather to come but its ok because that way I can plan some outfits ahead.

Since I was little Summer was my favorite season of the year. But now as I've gotten older and my style has changed Autumn has taken Summer's place instead.

Now I'm more inclined to somewhat darker colors and a singular color rather than the girly prints and colors that I have worn before. You can see what I mean if you look back at THIS past look.

So, now that Fall Season is here its time to bring back those cozy sweaters and comfy knee-high socks - my personal favorite.

My staple colors for Fall Season 2012 are: burgundy, pastels, neutrals and grays! I already have a lot of outfits planned in my head and I can't wait to show you guys.

Below are some of the things I've been eyeing to purchase specifically to welcome Autumn:

1. Coated Skater Skirt FOREVER 21 (similar HERE)
2. Two Tone Beanie FOREVER 21
3. Media Lipstick M.A.C COSMETICS
5. Two Knuckle Rings GLINT & GLEAM

What is on your Autumn Wishlist?

Cropped Bustier & Skirt  \\ PACSUN  Tibetian Cuff  \\ EBAY
There was a period in my life when I thought gypsies were some of the coolest people on earth in terms of their wardrobe. I love their overwhelming use of jewelry and their utter fondness of the color black.

For this look I used gypsies as my inspiration of course. I thought this skirt was perfect for the look because it screamed gypsy to me but since I'm not used to wearing mostly black I added a pop of color with this colorful cropped bustier that I snagged during the labor day sales.

Behold my new favorite lip creme: Antwerp!
Antwerp has a soft pink color and a matte finish. I picked it up at ULTA the other day when I decided
to go find Antwerp's sibling "Sao Paulo" [un]fortunately it was out of stock. So, I decided to give Antwerp a shot in turn.

Here are the results:
*These photos were taken without flash to show Antwerp's true color. I also wore RIMMEL Eastend Snob lip liner.

Its such a pretty pink color. The matte is perfect as well. When you first apply it the texture is creamy and after a few seconds it dries matte. In these shots it took me about 2-3 coats of it and I applied a lip balm - eos lip balm in mint - underneath to prevent any potential dryness to my lips.

Do you like Antwerp?

Have you ever taken a closer look at the sky?
Its so vast and grand isn't it?
I have this infatuation with it that over the years has progressed more and more.
The sky captivates me because it eases my eyes; blue is so easy on the eyes. Blue is by far my favorite color. Yes, I do love pink as well but blue is different for me. Its like blue and I were meant to be together. Perhaps that is why my room and various items I own are this color.
As you can guess this sweater is one of my favorites for its color. To me this sweater is just "so easy on the eyes" just like the sky. This sweater is a classic piece with a classy touch.

What I'm Wearing:

Mint Sweater/Skirt/Accessories - FOREVER 21 
Flats w/ Bow - ZARA

I cannot believe we're halfway through the year already! Summer is almost over and Autumn is right around the corner which means that Freestyle Moda's birthday is coming up. I get impressed every year when I look back and see how much my style has improved...
I truly feel like I'm a Moth that has come a long way on her journey to discover her style.

Its official... I parted ways with my Senegalese Twists early! 
As much as I loved them and how well they turned out I couldn't handle them because of the heat.
Florida's weather is as insane as ever and the twists made it even more uncomfortable.

However I did save them for when it cools down a little.
