Finally an OOTD =] With Forever 21+

Yes yes I know it has been like forever since I have made an Outfit post well I thought it was about time I get back to blogging. As you can see here i took a summer dress i had in my closet and transformed it to work for me as a cute winter outfit. Living in California Iam able to do this i couldn't imagine getting away with this in some other parts of the world i would freeze my butt off . The most exciting part of the outfit would be the affordable boots i picked up at forever21+ for the amazing price of $35 and they are wide calf =] I should got the ones in black to but I just got the dark brown ones. Lord knows i have to many boots as it is.

Matters of the heart

It really has been a struggle for me lately to blog i am really on some kind of crazy roller coaster ride with emotion some really personally i just rather not share. But what i can share is i have been in some kind of weird rut ever since I graduated in June. I'm sure im not the only one who goes through this when it comes to finishing school even though im not all the way done im done with part of it and working on a higer degree but gosh i feel like my life is not going were i want it to go and must admit i do miss my group of friends i spent the last 3 1/2 years with our study groups the support system we all had, some of us stay in contact and some have moved on with there life's. Along with all of that I have found a partner and although our relationship is still fairly new I have been spending a lot of my free time with him our schedules our both hectic so finding time is some times a challenge. I am very happy but I do not feel very accomplished right now and due to the economy I'm not working,and dedicating myself to being once again a full time student. I really i'm tired of sitting at home and want to work in the field I worked so hard to school for. I some times feel as if im losing my sense of self and the direction everything is going. Its been so bad I dont even get on blogger to get inspired by my other fellow bloggers I am in just a BLAH and want to get out of it already,finding the motivation is challenging right now if any of you can relate please leave me your thoughts and what you did to pick your self up. I am usually a go getter and very determine person but even with all those I still fill broken. That is just what has been going on with me these past months and finally I am able to vent and let them out.

Thanks for all the continued support xoxoxo

Also I have listed some things from my closet that Iam no longer going to wear if you want to check them out I will be adding more things soon

Torrid's gives me a hot lo0k for less

Who doesn't like Torrid clearance I know I am obsessed with them great way to pick up on some awesome deals.

I enjoyed my date night and Torrid always gives me that extra boost of confidence.

Graduation Update and Outfit with IGIGI

Yes its over with the long dedication I have put into the 3 year Direct Study Psychology Program has came to a bitter sweet end . Now my focus will be working on my bachelors I still have a a couple more years of schooling but the hard part is over at least I think lol . On to my outfit I wore the So Talented Dress in Purple by IGIGI for my graduation over all I'm happy with how it turned out just wish there was a little more stretch in the upper half especially around the arm area it fit but I wish a more stretchy fabric was used. The dress is Beautiful and felt great in it. The Bottom half of the dress was very figure flattering especially when at comes to certain areas of my bottom half  other than that i was very pleased with this dress.  I had an amazing day and now can enjoy a couple weeks off bbefore I start school again and prepare to take my State exam which I'm kinda nervous about ..   Once again thank you all for your continue support  =]

DATING IS NOT EASY ! yes ladies that's exactly how I feel at this point and I almost feel that maybe its not even for me. I hate it and most of all I hate the wolf's disguised in sheep clothing......... If its not one thing its another and frankly am so over it. After the last guys I meet I dont think my Heart can handle anymore let downs. Oh Johnny you gave me a run for my money I must admit his game and bullshit sweetness was good and me being a fool and trying to allow myself to take a risk once again got let down. Talking to a few of my girlfriends am not at all surprised to see that am not the only one with MEN problems as am sure 1000 other women have the same dilemma. All i have to says is if you have someone your with and blessed enough to find love then I encourage you to be thankful for that person sometimes I feel as if Iam meant to be alone. Me as a women Iam complete I love myself and have lots going for me having a man is not needed To complete me,am already complete as the strong independent women I am but it would be nice to have someone to share life with lets just keep it real loneliness SUCKS ! So I am @ the point i was a year ago with dating giving it a big thumbs down for now anyways

Tired of Love games

♥Saturday Fun in Hollywood OOTD with FOREVER 21 + ♥

So since I have no car right now which sucks but hey times are hard and I just cant afford to invest in money to fix the one I have let alone think about trying to buy a new one I guess I have no choice but to be okay with it it does limit the ability to go were you want but I do not let that stop me from having fun I just use the subways to get around and go places I have been hanging out in Hollywood a lot lately because its easy for me to get there the subway drops me right off on Hollywood BLVD I refuse to allow myself to get stuck @ home ! I go out a lot with friends but the way gas prices having been soaring to the sky even my friends with cars would rather take the train to get around its cheaper ,fast and you dont have to worry about traffic. I had a fun time yesterday had a great lunch  @ Maui and son bar and grill off of Hollywood and LasPalmas did a little shopping and enjoyed my day trying to get my mind off all the bullshit that has been going on when it comes to matters of the heart =X So enough rambling here is my OOTD Hope you guys are enjoying your weekend and can you believe we are already in MAY were does the time go?

What am wearing


Trying to feel great even when I dont feel it

I am having one of them days were I feel crappy I have allergies and also experiencing "THE BLUES" yes my emotions have been like a roller coaster,regardless of all that its so easy for my to fall into a depression were all I want to do is sleep let alone try and fix myself up. Well am not letting that happen so as i struggle to find motivation to try to be somewhat descent looking this is what I came up with nothing special just a lazy day outfit , I choose the bright colors so maybe it would rub off on my mood it didn't but never the less I tried am praying for better days which I know will come this funk shall pass in the meantime I will just ride it out xoxoxo Thank god its Friday tomorrow =]

♥Easter OOTD ♥

I Hope you all had a wonderful Resurrection day for those who celebrate. I was lost in my closet and didn't know what to wear ,after about a hour trying different things I just decided to go with this dress I picked up from Jc Pennys. I had a great time today and for the recorder I am on food comma status. on to some details about the dress, I love the style but because I have been losing weight the dress fits a little big which makes me look larger than I would like so I might return it or sell it am not sure I just bought it and wore it for a few hours, I haven't decided but I know I wont be wearing it again kinda sucks If i exchange it I would rock the dress again because I love the style just not the fit.
  • Jean Spring Dress - Jc Pennys

Yesterday ,was such a beautiful day here in LA not to hot and not to cold a perfect day for a Maxi dress . I bought this awhile back from Yours Clothing  when they were having a great sale. I was excited to pull it out of my closet and put it to good use. I love the draping on the front of this dress. I spent my day in Hollywood yesterday ate lunch and needed to go by the MAC store to buy some foundation.  I think am obsessed with Maxi Dresses and will be adding more to my wardrobe.

♥ City Chic Weekend Out fit of The day ♥

Since I have been doing some dating and wanted to make that lasting first impression,I thought I would do it with one of my dresses I had gotten from the City Chic sale am so in love with this dress. Well I guess I did because he kept saying how awesome I looked. Which I already new who wouldn't feel awesome in a beautiful dress as this one .
I am wearing
  • Chiffon Spot Bow Dress with Belt (City Chic)

    • Red Bow Shrug ( City Chic)



Yesterday after finding out about the mid season sale @ ASOS  I was drooling over these pieces all though there are so many things I want, these 3 items stood out for me and unfortunately are not on sale and due to me budgeting my spending because it has been out of control =X   I will just add them to my wish list in hopes that maybe they will go on sale sometime in the future. I did pick something up from the sale something I have been wanting but wasn't willing to spend $62 for  but thanks to the sale I only spent $ 34 so below is what I picked up

I am crazy when it comes to shopping am I the only one that goes online window shopping all the time and add things to my cart I have my cart filled with stuff in so many different websites. Its funny when I do have $$$ I will go back to those same shopping carts and  not want everything .  Yeah what can I say I live to shop and shopping lives in me =]

Dating confessions # 2

Insanity with men , maybe because i have been out of the loop with dating am seeing some shit that just does not tickle my fancy lets talk about it shall we, What is up with men and them being so overly sexual like really it does not turn me on when you say you want to get to know me and  some how  you bring up sex in our conversation. Lets talk about Ronnie  dont get me wrong he is a sweet heart but is just a crazy  nympho I like sex  I am  in no way all uptight about it but its like dude i just meet you we have bumped into each other a few times and you just want to bore me with your uncontrollably sexual drive. I'm so over him with a passion  but this knuckle head will not take no for a answer i have expressed how i feel because(I have no problem telling someone whats on my mind) But he still bugs like we will hang up from  talking and he will totally call me back with in 15 minutes of me telling him am going to bed I dont know about this one. We have awesome conversations but its when he starts with the sex talk and ask me to send him a picture of  myself in my BRA ((WTF)) okay so last night I had to break it to this dude and tell him that he is a sweet heart  but am really not feeling it and he stalked me the whole night with phone calls  and voice mails. OKAY RONNIE AM OVER YOU AND ON TO THE NEXT .........But its not just Ronnie its a lot of men am not surprised by it maybe just maybe i have went in with the wrong attitude every time i meet someone am thinking in the back of my head maybe this could be the one and when i find out its not  i really get disappointed .So I have a new outlook am not searching meaning Ill go out on a date if it doesn't work out so be it am not going  to allow myself to get let down by this. I think am learning by trial and lots of error  I have always been the girl with a boyfriend for a long periods of time so this is kinda new for me and a bit awkward but if we dont take risk in life than we dont get anywhere ether !  IAM GLAD I  HAVE A GOOD RADAR FOR DOUCHE BAGS !


I really think this season am so crazy over florals not so much last season maybe because it has taken  me a while to warm up to them and the florals that came out this season are far more feminine than last spring so today was casual Friday @ work  it was a good time for me to wear yet another floral piece which was good because after work  I went with some of my friends to go shoot pool in long beach at a place i have never been to called Yankee Doddle I had so much fun maybe to much it was a great way to start off my weekend  I hope you  guys have a awesome weekend and find some time to yourself  remember its always good to take some time out to pamper yourself even if it means just to take a relaxing walk and collect your thoughts.

Dating confessions # 1

I decided that I would share some of  most intimate  feelings that am having with this whole dating thing . So when I first started dating just a couple months back i meet this guys on my way home from work ,he was with his friends goofing around i was so cranky that i just wanted to get home ,mind you I was on the bus because my car broke down and to find out that he sold his to get a new one, but back to the story they sat next to me and started craking jokes  I couldn't help but laugh bunch of knuckle heads is what i thought to find out  as his friend got off the bus  he started to talk to me  you could totally see the shyness   almost for a minute I  felt like i was back  in high school we exchanged numbers and the rest is history, we talked and text and hung out  when i was with him  he was so shy he told me that i made him nervous  a complete gentlemen he gave me butterflys  like no other man could ever give me it was strange   but , he was not very good about telling me  how he felt , so it was very hard for me to figure this guy out to make a long story short he texted me this morning and told me  that he was leaving to go back to the east coast to live and he just started to pour out his feeling that I was a amazing women and that he didn't want to get too close to me in fear he would fall in love and he knew in the back of his head that he was leaving soon .Why the hell did he have to go there uggggggh my heart dropped to the bottom of my dam gut . I have been dating others guys but Adrian was by far the one that i could totally see myself with and the one i was excited to talk to and now he is leaving , I guess this is the hard part of dating and i must admit that  am kinda bummed out even more so with all that he told me ! So I close  the chapter of ADRIAN  and hope the best for him and sit here with the thought of what could have been.

We sometimes encounter people,
even perfect strangers,
who begin to interest us at first sight,
somehow suddenly, all at once,
before a word has been spoken.

xoxo- Crystal
