"Artist Appreciation"

Photo May 01, 8 25 22 PM I've been eyeing and laughing over this shirt for at least six months now. I first learned about the artist through Instagram (seriously where I find out about anything cool) and finally took the plunge and bought it with some commission money from a recent art piece. In my opinion no one is more destined to be a closet metalhead than Ron Swanson, and judging by the smirks I got from passerby's at school today, I think many would agree. Confused? Watch Parks and Recreation. He had me at "meat tornado."

During a study break last night I also made this headband from some extra tshirt material! It adds some extra excitement to a pretty basic outfit. I was hooked and made another for myself and one for my roommate. I can't wait to show you the others in future posts!

OOTD_86: Studio Review

DSC_0762 Today was my mid-review for studio, so I always like to wear a dress or skirt, and wear something that is professional but still exciting. This dress is a go to in my closet because it's a neutral but it still bold and graphic. The cut of it really suits being paired with an oversized blazer like this one. You may remember this outfit a while back as well where I styled this dress for a school day. Finally, it's great to add a decisive pop of color to your outfit when making a presentation, so I finished off my look with this bright statement necklace I made a while back. This was a piece of a small "collection" my friend Ariana and I worked on a while back, which I plan to share more on later. This quarter we have been experimenting with other students and our professor with digitally fabricated jewelry which is really exciting!

Don't forget you can always quickly change up your look with your hair! I tried a middle part today because I feel like my hair is finally long enough, and I really liked how it streamlined my look.
