Sometimes you have to fight for what you want in life because its not going to just fall in your lap. Sometimes seemingly simple things to others can be one of your biggest fears or obstacles. Lately I’m learning how to fight for what I truly believe in for myself, something that I haven’t had to do for a while. Moving to a new city and aspiring to finish school here in Chicago but not receiving support from anyone else and regretfully not putting my proper stones in place to support myself I am left with a major decision of how to make this happen and am lucky to have my fiancé who is willing to back me up 100% on any choice I have to make to put myself through school to come out the other end with my completed degree. 

Lately I have been feeling very rebellious like a teenager again so I’ve reverted back to my Converses which are super comfy to walk around in and my fiancé is always trying to get me to wear jeans, tee and sneaks, I guess I have to take it as a compliment… I named the title of this look ‘”B.C. I.J.D.G.A.F.” which is shortened version of “because I just don’t give a fuck” because of my attitude lately and feel that it is a great title for this grunge teenage 90’s look. 

Also I am sporting a super soft, super in this fall, flannel shirt that I chose to wrap around my waist in some shots. 

This flannel is from Shop Akira, which is a Chicago brand. I purchased this shirt in store but they have many items available online. I also purchased my favorite tall Workin Q Jeffries from them, they often have rare Jeffries that are sold out everywhere else online.

If there is anything that I have learned through life and blogging is that anything can happen, you never give up and you just keep thrusting forward. So many unpredicted events, both positive and the opposite have occurred in the past few months, all that I could do was handle each situation one at a time, and yes at times I was overwhelmed, but now here I am in a new city, with my fiancé, the love of my life and the one that makes most of these photos happen. 

One of the hardest things that I have endured after leaving home besides the obvious missing my family, friends, friends who I made my family, searching for a new job, relocating all of my belongings and animals across country, regretting leaving half of it at home, crying over forgetting all of my Christmas decor (don’t worry the tears only lasted a minute and my fiancé bought some fall decor immediately to brighten my day) is just to take it in and not let anything truly dismay you. Over the years I have had to take unexpected breaks from my blogging due to family matters, and just life, but not once have i let it stop me from living. Through my painting, continuous use of my creativity, writing, school, learning, and making sure that the ones that matter the most come first, I never give up.

Theses photos were taken after am unforgivable amount of truffle, burgers, and bourbon we shot these photos in Bucktown. Chicago. This is where I will be working and hopefully living soon. I fell in love with this part of the city when we came to visit in March, it is filled with so much inspiration and can’t help but feel this is where I was meant to be. I am so happy to be here with the love of my life, the possibility of a dream job in fashion, and the start of a new chapter. 

There pants are from Karmaloop and today I paired them with Jeffrey Campbell boots, and a jean shirt that I left open with a white fringe crop top underneath. I love these pants and somehow snagged them on sale from Karma loop for 5$ when I was in a giant search of velvet bellbottoms, they can easily be dressed  up or down and are so comfy and warm for fall. 

Why This Fall is the Sexiest Season For Women

By : Neon Cherokee

Ok I suppose this sounds a bit ass backwards but ladies when your men think of summer do they immediately picture a Victoria Secret model in a teeny weenie bikini strutting back and forth down a runway in heels? Or a Kate Upton version of you straddling the shoreline with a beer waiting for them? Well all us ladies know that not every girl feels sexy in a bikini and walking around in stilettos pool side does not bode well for an afternoon of drinking on a a wet surface in 100 degree heat, and aren’t girls sexiest when they feel sexy?

I know that once fall hits, I can check out of my two to three day a week gym routine, maybe even cut down to once a month, but hey who cares! We are going to be slipping into our tight leather pants (don’t want those to sag) knee high boots, short skirts, panty hoes, chunky sweaters and leather gloves! Theres more need for staying perfectly tan, and even love the way my cheeks turn pink when I stop my tanning bed summer obsession (spray tans only stay safe girlies). Oh and with fall this season comes red! Imagine your red lips cooling down a steaming hot latte to lead to down to your leather gloves, fur coat, leather knee high boots, and thigh high stockings under a plaid skirt, yummy!

Also this fall season we don’t have to go strait to black, were going to be seeing a lot of mints and pastels! I just picked up a blush pink wool coat from Zara, so you can stay pretty in pink this season. Also we are seeing a LOT of school girl inspired outfits this fall, and what boy doesn’t love a school girl uniform? I think that look can go for any age as well! You can also check out Victoria Secret very sexy fall line (they specialize in more than just lingerie and bikinis) and pick up your riding boots there for this fall. I also recently purchased a surprisingly warm wool trench from them along with my statement leather moto jacket. So don’t think of fall as hiding all of your lady parts, think of ways to accentuate them and feel sexy falling in love with fall!

I recently picked up a whole inventory of vintage clothing for my company Shop Hell Cat on eBay. My friend Anthony Calla who is a professional photographer from Arizona helped me out with our last Hell Cat photo shoot. Him photographing the models while I flew around styling models with our latest vintage finds and prepping their make-up, we made an amazing team! I am so excited to see how they all came out! 

The skirt featured in this picture is one of our finds. I love it and it completely gives off a 90’s vibe to me mixed with definite 60’s flower power. I feel you’d be able to pull off a spin of either generation in this cute tie around skirt. Check out Hell Cat for more vintage finds and stay tuned!

Spent my days with a woman unkind,Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine. 

Made up my mind to make a new start, Going To California with an aching in my heart. 

Someone told me there’s a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair. 

Took my chances on a big jet plane, never let them tell you that they’re all the same. 

The sea was red and the sky was grey, wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today. 

The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake 

as the children of the sun began to awake.

They flew down the Overseas Highway in the darkness where the “Drive Safe” signs littered the ditches. She thought of his father driving that day, face pressed against the glass. 5, 6, 7,…13,…19,… she lost count surrounded by what she knew must be ocean, smelling the salted air. All she could see was black and blue paired with the flash of passing by cars. Maybe it was better this way she thought.
I really love this jumper. At first when I saw it in the window I thought it was a dress and after pulling it down I saw that it had legs with slits. I’ve never seen anything like that and was discouraged at first until I tried it on! I had a Veronica Livingstone from “Anchorman” moment where Ron Burgundy tells her she has the an absolutely  breathtaking hiney and wants to be friends with it. Oh yeah it was that GOOD! I have to say, being given small breasts, (not to toot my own hornmy badonkadonk is my biggest asset and this jumper from Shop Akira Chicago truly does it justice. Thanks Shop Akira!

There’s something wrong with your love story, baby. They may love you, but they will never love you as much as they love each other. Otherwise, they wouldn’t share you.

Sometimes she wishes she could kiss all of the boys taking their sadness away, even if it became a part of her.
