I haven’t blogged in a while…

Every night for the past week, I always remember that I needed to post a blog for the day. I ALWAYS FORGET!

But im back bitchessss. haha, jk. you’re not a bitch, it is just my form of saying hi.

So lately, I’ve been up to a few things. I haven’t told the world this but I am starting my own clothing brand! or brand in general. It will feature my own designs that will be printed on t-shirts, bags, anything, you name it. The type of feeling you will get from seeing my designs is like you’re in a crazy dream in Hawaii. Every design I make is out of the ordinary. Say for example if you see a palm tree, the normal colors are green and brown. My design will feature colors that are much more modern and funky rather than the traditional.

The name of my brand is called WANDER & DAZE.

How did I come up with this name you ask? well, I have gone through two names that I tried to make for my brand. I guess I didn’t research enough but those two names have already been taken in my state. I was in a super big funk because I didn’t know what else kinds of names I could come up with. TILL ONE DAY, I jot down a bunch of words that describe life to me. Words that make up my life. What I am currently going through. What life is for others. Just a whole bunch of stuff.

So I came up with WANDER first. we wander through life not knowing what’s next. every day is not guaranteed and we don’t know what our path looks like for life. As far as DAZE goes, to me it means like your mind is in a different place. Like you are unable to think properly, kind of like confusion. I feel like life is full of that. We get into mishaps and situations where we are stuck in a rut and don’t know what to do. Also, I did like how Wander & Daze flowed together.

I just looked up on google that Daze means to verb:

make (someone) unable to think or react properly; stupefy; bewilder.
noun:

a state of stunned confusion or bewilderment.
When you look at my designs, I want people to be like whuuuuh? or whoaaaa, that’s pretty cool. something untraditional. something out of the norm. In Hawaii, you see shaka’s or aloha in every picture. I want to capture that but in a different way. a unique way.
anyway, I plan to come out with some products within the next few months. How long? well we shall see. As long as I get it done. Im a go getter, however, I take it day by day. Because throughout my life, I wander not knowing what’s next.

I honestly don’t really take full body shots of myself (maybe because I’m a little insecure, who isn’t right?) but this one happens to be my only and favorite one. I believe this was taken back in October of 2012 when I was attending a friends birthday dinner. Let me just tell you a quick story before I get to the outfit details. My friend and I had finished school that day and we knew we had nothing to wear to the dinner. I didn’t want to go to the mall just to get an outfit for the night but, we ended up going. Being a broke college student, you don’t really want to spend a lot of money on things you don’t need. However, this entire outfit felt like a spontaneous splurge for me. We headed to Charlotte Russe, one of my all time most favorite stores! I couldn’t decide on what kind of dress to buy so I got two. They were both the same color, minty green. The other dress was a skater dress that came with a pink belt. (I’ll probably take a picture of it later and post it, just in case anyone wanted to see. And I most likely lost the pink belt.) Anyway, I ended up buying the white blazer as well, which I shouldn’t have because it was too tight and my arms were suffocating. Beauty is pain I guess. Plus, it looked good for the dinner so I can’t complain.

Fast forward and whilst walking to the restaurant, a strap on my sandal broke. I was devastated because it was my favorite wedge heel. I got it from Jeans Warehouse, I believe that store is only located in Hawaii. But hey, I had the sandal for a long time so the time had came to break, but at the wrong time. All in all, I definitely rocked this look at my friends 21st bday dinner.

Here’s a list of my outfit items:

Charlotte Russe

  • Blazer $40
  • Mint Dress $20

Jeans Warehouse

  • Black Wedge Heels: $20

Earrings

  • My Own 🙂

Stick around for my future outfit of the days and possibly make up looks that come with it. Toodles 🙂
