Cara Delivigne being generally perfect

Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted lately, my computers basically gone haywire and until I can fix it please enjoy this video of Cara Delivigne singing (yet another talent of hers) along side Will Heard.  It's magical.

Black is Baack

sweater- Target, jeans- Bullhead, Shoes- Steve Madden #teenvogue #black #modern

You heard me, 
black is baack..
and more fabulous then ever.
Black has always been somewhat of a statement color.
Whether a black pinky nail, or *gasp* black lipstick, (yes, it does exist, and I do own it), black always seems to draw glances in your direction.
It used to be practically a crime,
anyone who dared to wear black was labeled as a punk or a goth,
and shunned from sleepovers and parties and even lunch groups just because they dared to wear black.
Over the past 25 years or so,
 things have loosened up,
diversity has become more of a positive than a negative,
and people have all together eliminated the words goth and punk from their vocabularies.
A person wearing black is simply making a statement.
It's a statement of:
"I want to be seen.  I am modern,  I am strong, and I am fierce."
Some people,
are not comfortable making such a statement.
Not everyone wants to stick out in a crowd, even in a good way.
I get that,
I used to be one of those people.
It takes years really, or for some, maybe just a day or two of thinking,
what am I hiding from?
Maybe your hiding from those sideways glances in the halls that trigger that little bit of insecurity right inside you,
or maybe there's a boy that makes you so shy you just want to disappear, and black just won't help you do that.
Think about it.
All your life you'll be faced with judgmental looks and boys that give you butterflies,
but it doesn't mean you have to spend your entire life hiding from them, and hiding from black.

Sweaters, Socks, & A Cactus

 excuse my "Sherlock Holmes" shoes, they've had a tad bit too much wear.. #teenvogue

I've been very controversial about sweater dresses lately.
They're super cute, and they keep your shoulders and tummy warm,
but your legs freeze.
And especially in fun bright colors or patterns.
Fun Tip:
If you can't keep your legs warm, 
keep your feet warm,
and your entire body will feel instantly warmer.
I find it so difficult to style my shoes in the fall/early winter because it's so cold that you want to cuddle up in boots every day, but boots get rather boring after awhile and so do jeans.
I got this neutral pair of what I call "Sherlock Holmes" shoes, they're super warm (and they're actually mens, I thought I'd try out a masculine look this Fall) and they add a sense of heaviness and punk-ness to every outfit.
Is punk-ness a word? Am I making up words now? In that case, fabulicious is a word now too..
