How WE wear our J's: Concord 11's





(His Fit: Levis Button-up, Levis Corduroy Pants, Levis Denim Jacket, Concord 11's; My Fit: Cheap Monday Bomber Jacket, Forever 21 Blouse, Levis High-Waisted Shorts, Concord 11's)

We decided to match J's on this day when we spent the entire Sunday afternoon together. This is my boyfriend, Jordan. This Saturday marks our three year anniversary. February 4 til infinity, baby! Although we have been together officially for three years, we have been dating a year before we got together. We've been dating since the 10th grade. Now we are older, we are both in our 2nd year of college. I'm going into nursing and he is going into criminal justice. I love this boy with all of my heart and we've gotten stronger through the years. Of course, like all couples, we've had our ups and downs but we work through it. We never leave things unfixed.

I love you, Jordan Michael Garcia.

How I Wear My J's: Black Cement 3's




(Cheap Monday Bomber Jacket, UO Leatherette Corset, Velvet Leggings [from my bf4lz], Black Cement Jordan 3's)
I'm pretty sure you have all seen my previous photos of me wearing these shoes. These particular pair of J's are very, very special to me. They were my very first pair of Jordan's and these are NOT from the 2011 Black Friday release. These are from the 2008 Countdown pack and they are the only J's I own that came with a special box (since kid size J's come in the regular Jordan's box while mens' size J's come with special boxes depending on the J's). These Black Cement 3's came with the countdown box and I got these for myself on Christmas of 2009. What inspired me was this picture of Amber Rose and Kanye West both wearing the Black Cement 3's and I remember wanting them so bad that I bought them. I wore these J's a lot because they were my first pair and they are my favorite pair. I love them so much. These are the shoes that started my beautiful collection. I hope you all enjoy this look!

How I Wear My J's: Jordan "True Blue" 3's




(UO Renewal Camo Jacket, UO Scarf, Jordan 3's True Blues)
I've never tried this before so I thought I'd try it out and it actually looks good. Its a nice contrast from the camo with the blue. I decided to do this outfit last minute. It came out nice. I hope you guys like it. The Jordan 3's are actually my favorite pair of Jordans. I love the fit of them and I love how they look. I feel like you can wear anything with the 3's because of the design. I don't know what it is about it that makes it so versatile. P.S. I've been sick for the past few days, I wasn't even going to do a shoot with my J's this weekend because I was feeling "under the weather" but I decided to do it last minute. I didn't even wear a lot of make-up because I just feel too ill to wear a bunch of shit on my face so here you go...I hope you all enjoy.

Gold




(H&M Blouse, Thrifted Gold Pants [which I turned into a maxi skirt], Turban/Infinity scarf from Flea Market, JC Lita's)
Like I said from my previous post, this look was inspired by Olivia Lo. I just think that the flowy blouse contrasts so well with the gold. So I plan to wear this tomorrow to my cousin's debut. Shoutout to you, Ceejay! She's turning 18. Isn't it cool how I turned these gold pants into a maxi skirt? I'm so happy that I did it. Success!

Xoxo, CuriouserLia.

Blazer Takeover





(Thrifted Blazer, UO Tank Top, Thrifted Levis Shorts, JC Lita's, Turban/Infinity Scarf from Sunday Flea Market)
I've had this blazer for a while now, I just never took it out of my closet and wore it because for a long time I didn't know what to wear with it. Now that I own my velvet wine Ford's, I can wear it with this blazer. I actually bought this off my friend, Suzie. Same with the thrifted shorts. She sells her stuff online, so I bought these off her a long time ago. I think I bought them back in the summer. I just never wore this blazer til now. I hope you enjoy!

Xoxo, CuriouserLia.

Vintage Renewals

So last week, I went to a thrift shop in Long Beach. I didn't really find anything at first, because all I was looking for were "Mom Jeans" and I didn't find any. As I was leaving, these funky gold high-waisted pants caught my eye...

I already envisioned them as a maxi skirt so I copped it! They were only $1. It was a deal! When I got home, I got my sewing machine out and started cutting up the pants into sections and sewed them together to make a maxi skirt. They were tight at the ankles so that I couldn't walk, so I decided to cut up 2 slits, one on each side. So I did that, and sewed the slits so they wouldn't look undone and this was the final result...

I am so in-love with this maxi skirt. My idea of turning funky pants into a maxi skirt was a success! What actually inspired me when I saw these gold pants was Olivia Lo when she posted a look with a gold maxi skirt...

This is why I turned those pants into a maxi skirt. This look inspired me.

That's not the only thing I copped this past week, I also went back to the Sunday flea market on Fairfax. I wasn't looking for anything in particular, I was just walking around checking out all the tents. The cool thing about this flea market, is that they don't just sell used/thrifted things. Some tents sell clothes that have been customized and renewed. And that is what I am blogging about today. I did cop 3 items and they were good deals for vintage-renewed items.


I copped this "hi-lo" skirt from this woman who had a tent full of vintage dresses, rompers and these maxi skirts which she customized into the trendy "hi-lo" skirts where its short in the front and long in the back. I've been looking for this kind of skirt everywhere and I'm glad I stopped by her tent. She sold it to me for $10 when she was originally going to sell it to me for $15. This skirt is gorgeous and I can't wait til spring comes...or not. I might do a look post with this skirt soon. Stay Curious!

Then I stopped by this tent full of infinity scarves/turbans. This woman's tent amazes me everytime. She makes her own scarves/turbans and what's cool about her scarves are that they are infinity scarves AND turbans. You can choose to wear it as a scarf or as a turban. She taught me how to wear her scarves as a turban and I thought that was very cool. I chose the cat patterned one cuz it was a random pattern and its a cute color and I chose the plain black one because I was in need of a plain black scarf/turban. I can't wait to wear these scarves! I'll also do a post on how I wear these.

Anywho, it was another good Sunday Flea Market experience. I love it there! Stay curious for outfit posts featuring the items I blogged about today.

Xoxo, CuriouserLia.

Standing Out in Camouflage








(UO Camo Jacket in Mens, H&M Lace leotard, Thrifted high-waisted levis shorts, UO over-the-knee socks, JC Litas)

Bought a new lipstick by Revlon today. Thought I'd try it out. It's really purple so I mixed it with my Bordeaux lipstick from Estee Lauder to make it a more maroon/burgandy color. Just thought it would go great with my camo jacket lol. Hope you guys enjoy this look!

Red Velvet Legs



(H&M Jumper, Forever 21 Feather Necklace, Velvet leggings from my bf4lz<3, Louis Vuitton Speedy from my mother)

This was taken on the first night of 2012 by my cousin, Shelby. She wanted to do a quick little night shoot at some random fountain in Cerritos. We were having a New Year's dinner with my Barnachea cousins. Funny story that night...we found a worm on the lettuce in our ceviche. We had a little appetizer in this Peruvian restaurant and we found a fucking worm. So disgusting. They didn't have us pay for the ceviche but our meals were 50% off. Then we went to Kabuki after. My boyfriend & I just got green tea ice cream while the rest of them had sushi. It was a funny night, but we were all shook from the worm. So gross! Happy New Year!
