Hey guys! Sorry about the lack of blog posts recently, I've just been incredibly busy at school. However my dad sent me a music video of "Love Has Left the Room" by A Camp and I had to post it. I have no idea why my dad felt compelled to send it -for the song or the clothes-but the lead singer's outfits are so awe-inspiring that no matter what the reason, you all have to see it. Random fact: I'm pretty sure the lead singer was also in The Cardigans (Lovefool anyone?) :)
You're probably wondering: why is there a picture of hot pink flowers in a black and white photo....on a fashion blog? Well, first off, I love this picture obviously, but this actually started when the same good friend who introduced me to Old Gringo boots (see blog below) asked me what the hot nail polish color is for this month. After a meeting with my good friend Google, I came across an article on the Glamour magazine website that said this month's hot nail color is-wait for it-hot pink. And next thing I knew, I was on a pink rampage. For those who know me, you probably already have figured out that pink is my favorite color. My wall at home was painted pink, so of course it was my destiny to love pink. Going into my room at school, it's hard to find something in my room that isn't pink-pink bed, pink desk lamp, pink alarm clock, pink snuggie (yes, I have a snuggie, don't judge me), etc. Why pink, you ask? Other than the fact that pink is universally known as the quintessential girl's color, I really believe pink speaks to every aspect of my personality: joyful, open, energetic, bold, not afraid to speak my mind, and-you guessed it-fierce. Pink is also a very appropriate color for Valentine's Day this coming Monday, and its bright, fun attitude really makes me want spring and summer back stat. In short, Audrey Hepburn fearlessly proclaimed her belief in pink, and I am happy to join her as a pink believer.
Feel free to post your thoughts as well! What's your favorite color? What color do you believe in and how does it speak to you?
If you strictly prefer minimal shoes that stay mute, don't read the rest of this blog. Today, one of my really good friends sent me a picture of these incredibly cute floral cowboy boots. Where did they come from, you ask? These beauties come from Old Gringo, a family business straight out of Mexico. While these boots don't come cheap, you can splurge with a clear conscience since the workers who made these boots are paid very handsomely. And they should be, especially judging by all the little intricate details in every boot. I absolutely love the floral boots for spring, but these boots shown here are fabulous for fall as well. I'd recommend these boots for the daring, fearless bohemian, bold and not above taking risks. As the Spanish would say about these shoes, Que hermosas! :)
