HEYYYYY guys! Please don't disown me, haha I have been gone for a while, sadly that is what happens when you try to balance school and up coming projects which results in a lack of sleep and the cycle just continues day to day. I am on SPRING BREAK now **happy dance**. It will literally consist of scouting thrift stores, flea markets and places for some treasures for my online store along with making like 50 shorts AND tie dying stuff, ANDD photo shoot! Although it is so much to do, I LOVE IT and it sure beats doing assignments.
 So I cut my hair extensions and dyed it again. I was initially going for a vibrant purple color, inspired by Diane's hair from DeeVine Anonyme,, but I ended up with multiple colors, lol. I think it's because the blue color and  pink color that I mixed to make purple were from two different brands, so they didn't chemically mix well when I dyed it...I don't know, but whatever the reason, I LOVE the end results. This vintage cardigan is so lovely, I got it from the thrift store the other day. I picked it up so last minute too, I said "Let me do one more round before I leave" and saw it when I was going through the XXL section for women!
 (THRIFTING TIP: Go through ALL THE RACKS, things aren't always placed in the correct places)
I am looking forward to my next post (DIY: tie dye) WOOO!
And as always,THANK YOU to those who left sweet and lovely comments from my last post, I always appreciate the comments I get. I seriously read over them more than once everyday (no lie), they make me smile, LOVE YOU ALL!

The "GOGO Rethread Threads"

Racks and Racks of vintage AWESOMENESS!!!!!
Stacey M. Chambers, Founder of "GoGo's Rethread Threads"
One of my purchases from "GoGo's Rethread and Threads," this awesome Aztec print vest! I love it!

I went to a conference last Saturday sponsored by my college called the Women's Expo. The conference was all about promoting businesses owned by women and empowering them to grow. There were many workshops and speakers there, and me wanting to open an online store this summer thought it would be really beneficial if I attended. Out of the many vendors that were there, my favorite was "GOGO's Retread Threads," a vintage store that sells one of a kind female and male vintage pieces in a funky decked out bus. It was like the magic school bus except for vintage fashion lovers. The founder Stacey Chambers has been doing this for almost three years, she stops at different locations through out the month to sell some vintage treasures for affordable prices. I definitely plan on purchasing some more stuff from her one of these days! Her pieces are so unique and like any other vintage piece, carry so much history in them. You can stay connected with GoGo's Retread Threads through:

 I have been in a "I want to wear trousers" mood lately! So I have been trying to stock up on pants and trousers, especially trousers with prints on them. When I saw these at H&M it reminded me of a print that would be on African traditional attire, which I love, so I had to get it. I paired it with my cobalt blue blazer because that is just how I roll. 
I hope everyone has a lovely week, mine is really going to be busy full of school assignments (as usual), I really am looking forward to Spring Break so I can have some time to breathe.Oh, I cut my hair, so no more green ombre, I was getting tired of the long length, it's a bit shorter now with some color or should I say colors (purple,pink and blue.) As we speak I will have some aluminum foils in my hair to redo some of the colors, ahah! Photos of course will be in my next post!

 Out of the 50 plus photos that I took, I settled for these few.. I accidentally set the ISO on the camera  too low so it resulted in a grainy effect in the photos and I didn't realize it until I uploaded the pictures..BOOHOO! So I just decided to play with editing and I think it actually turned out cool in the end.
 I am definitely into menswear at the moment, I am inspired by boxy blazers, printed suits, pants that stop at your ankles, ties and all that good stuff. Plus as spring season is slowly approaching, I want to start developing my spring/summer style, and try to leave behind my glory outfit days during the fall/winter season.**teartear** In other words, Spring Equinox, take your time getting here. Have a blessed week everyone!
