Heavenly Couture GIVEAWAY!
Hello Lovelies! I was contacted by Heavenly Couture recently and they asked me to do a review on their online shop. They’re known as the “$16 store” because EVERYTHING is $16 or under! I’ve been eyeing camo vests but hadn’t seen the perfect one, so when I came upon this vest I was super excited! Not only was it exactly what I wanted but it was also only $16! I paired it with my DIY studded/torn shorts and a simple beige crop top. It stands out perfectly on it’s own.
A quick review on Heavenly Couture:
Price: Amazing! how could you go wrong with $16 and under?
Shipping: Super fast!!!
Quality: Perfect; like anything you’d get from pricier shops.
Selection: A great selection for the price you get, unlike some other online shops that may have the price but not the selection.
So anyway, to the exciting part… I’m giving away a FREE pair of their Striped Washed Denim Shorts (size small)!

Recently I’ve reawaken my love for pastels (in reality it never died). I fell in love with these UNIF shorts that had a combo of my favorite pastels! I had to print an amazing cat shirt to go along with it, and thus I have myself a pastel kitten look! I pushed the look even further with these amazing lilac creepers that I got for a steal recently… and then put on my lacy thigh highs! With recent garter + thigh high trends, especially with those oh-so-popular garter leggings, I still couldn’t help questioning, were these socks pushing it too far? Nevermind, I love them, so who cares?!
Shed Some Skin
Talk about heat wave! These are the days when I question weather or not Southern California supposedly has “perfect weather.” I’d rather travel through freezing cold Europe again than spend a day walking in the heat! ’Tis the perfect day to wear a crop top and my comfy snakeskin pants! I love that these pants have a bit of green in them so that pairing it with a light chiffon shirt really adds a bit of a color to what could be an all-nude/brown outfit.
I went to Melrose the other day for the first time in a long time. (I have not excuse, living so close, but I just HATE finding parking!!) I happened upon Joyrich and was astounded by their new collaboration with Gerlan Jeans! I’m in loooovvveee!! If they had my size, I would’ve shelled out the moolah for a pencil print dress! (So I guess it’s good they didn’t have my size? haha) Across the street is a great store called Wild Style that Joyrich opened at the end of last year. It’s like a giant store of my dream closet! Super funky and crazy clothes that most people wouldn’t dare wear. This outfit today is slightly inspired by this funky style, although it’d definitely not even close to being completely bizarre.
Oh My Goth!
Is purple not really my color? I think I accidentally gothed myself out with this mesh dress-turned-top. Oh well! Mesh, chiffon, and anything see-through is becoming more and more a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. Will the trend ever die down? I hope not!
Oh and excuse my poor attempt and Angelina Jolie’s sexy leg pose—I wasn’t really trying to be sexy, I just had to show off my ombre tights! ;)

Cat in the Hat
I’ve been wanting to don this cute cat ear hat for the blog since I got it for Christmas from my best friend Emily! It’s super adorable and matches a simple vintage look like the one I’m donning today =)

Today’s Post is Brought to You by the Letter…
My amazing, wonderful, beautiful, kind, and… did I say amazing—boyfriend gave me a Topshop shopping spree for my birthday last weekend. (In case you don’t follow me on instagram, here’s the pic I took of my celebration with my BFFs) Because of that, and also because Topshop is having a sort of amazing sale right now, I finally realized my dream of owning this full crop top + skirt set. I don’t know why but I love being matchy matchy with these sets, and yes it’s somehow different than if this was a full on dress. I also got the amazing UNIF cross trainers which were heavily discounted by a stroke of luck! But anyway, it’s a hot 91 degrees Fahrenheit in LA right now and I’m wishing it away!

I had two people ask me if I tattooed or painted my legs today! In reality they’re nude stockings with cool velvety shapes on them. Tattoo tights have been incredibly popular in Japanese street fashion so I picked up a few pairs in Harajuku. I have a feeling the rest of the world is going to catch up soon with this trend and I’m ready! The floral overalls I’m wearing were so cute on the hanger I couldn’t resist! I’m still looking for a regular ole denim pair to join in on all the overall fun but instead of overspending, I’m obstinate about thrifting a pair. I’m excited that overalls are in again! They were the only thing I would wear as a kid!
Dweeb in Tokyo
Hello again! I’m back from the dead! My boyfriend and I have finally come back from our months of backpacking through Europe and we couldn’t have had more fun! We also made a surprise trip to Tokyo due to a crazy stroke of cheap plane ticket luck!
If you want to see some of my trip photos, I updated my Instagram (@unravelingsky) pretty thoroughly throughout our trip =)
After months of wonderful traveling memories, it still feels good to be home. I spent the first couple of days enjoying good ole Los Angeles weather, but I’m back to missing the cold, haha! I’d rather freeze than sweat any day!
These photos were from a beautiful day in Tokyo when we visited the Imperial Palace. We were lucky enough to be in Tokyo during the ONLY 2 week period in the whole year that the sakuras bloom! It was absolutely gorgeous!!
Also, I was super excited about my bear ears beanie!!! =D
Hey there palace kitty! =^.^=

I am so horrible! I left for my three month European backpacking trip without another word since Christmas! I’m terribly sorry but things happened so fast and there was so much work and packing to be done. Since I last blogged, I have been (unfashionably) backpacking through Europe: It started with 3 week trip through all of Ireland, then one week in each of the following cities…Scotland (Glasgow, Sterling, Edinburgh), London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, and now Budapest! It’s been quite the adventure and I feel so blessed to be doing it! Only three more weeks left of my trip until I have to face reality again! My next destination is a surprise though, it was sort of on a whim and I’m EXTREMELY excited to go!
But since I’ve literally been backpacking, I didn’t have any outfits to share… but I couldn’t help myself in London as well as getting a few things here and there at vintage shops through Europe. I ended up buying an extra luggage bag to hold what “little” treasures I would allow myself. ;)
Finally it’s warm enough to wear some of them! Budapest feels amazing in 55 degree weather! I never thought a native Southern Californian like me could think that 55 degrees would feel like sunbathing weather but it really has come to that after weeks of 20 - 35 degrees. But I can’t complain cause I quite love cold weather! Basically everything I’m wearing is from Topshop, hahaha. I know it’s kind of stupid of me to be so excited about Topshop in London when one literally opened up in Los Angeles in February. But I wasn’t there for the opening and oh my goodness have you seen the flagship store in London?!?!?!?!?! I think I could spend my whole life in there. I got lost quite a few times in that maze of a store!
So yeah, nothing fancy, just plain old black and white love! Hopefully I’ll be able to blog again soon but I never know! Usually I’m out wearing my ugly ole tennis shoes since walking in anything else is hell for my feet! haha
Oh, did I mention I got a haircut before my trip too?!?!! I don’t know if I like it or not. I do quite miss my long hair although I haven’t had un-dyed hair in years so it’s quite a nice change!
I wanted to get something from Ragged Priest but only settled on a beanie, haha. I’m still going to covet it though!
^ Couldn’t help but get some POW! socks hehe. Shoes from Zara! I love loafers!
^ had to throw in a picture of me with the River Danube in the background. And the super beautiful Parliament building! Budapest is so beautiful!
Until next time (which is hopefully soon~!)
