Hi LOVEs!!!
Do you have the problem when you decide just to do a little window shopping but end up buying something because the price is too good to pass it up? Well...that always happens to me whenever I go to Forever 21. And that's how I scored this perfect denim jacket! It was one of the deals of the week and was only $21, and once I tried it on, there was no way I could resist it.  Even though I have really narrow shoulders, the fit is amazing and I didn't have one with this length yet. I can imagine that this classic jacket can be worn in any season and makes me look so stylish. For the current season I would layer something underneath like a huge sweater, style it with a chunky scarf and a beanie or hat, or put another outerwear over it... The options are endless...!

This time, I wanted to make a 90's inspired look around this jacket since I already have this crazy (in a good way of course) mermaid/colorful hair. What would the 90's fashion be without denim styles? You know, history tends to repeat itself and that saying definitely comes up in the fashion and beauty world. So I just mixed up a lot of 90's fashion and beauty staples to create the look, which I paired the jacket with a high waisted denim and a cropped top. I should have swapped the chain neckless to a choker, but adding my new clear aviator gives a fresh and fun effect to the look with a cooler 90's vibe. I opted for a pair of gold pumps so that the look is elevated in more chic way. 
I recently ran into this beautiful deep berry lipstick from Milani when I did massive cosmetic shopping with Fred Meyer. ( The haul post is coming soon! ) I've been so in love with it. It's not too dark, yet it's deep enough for a pop of edginess! Guess what, it matches the bag! 

I am going to my FIRST Halloween party tonight and will be modeling with an awesome costume and makeup, so hung out with me via Instagram or Snapchat -- @fashionistaika
It's almost Friday, hang in there babes! ♥

Hi my LOVEly readers! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! My last week was pretty busy but really satisfying with launch/reception parties, photoshooting, and some work! ( My Sundays are typically a work day! ) The weather over the weekends was really killer as well! I love doing a photoshoot on such A M A Z I N G sunny day! 

My current obession centers on GRUNGE and PLAID trends! What an cool and bold trend, isn't it? Purple is one of my favorite colors in addition to red, and I've had this flannel oversized shirt from Forever 21 for years. I am glad I've kept it around! I wanted to add an 90's touch, so I paired it up with a wide brimmed fedora and high-waist shorts. Layering triple necklaces plus over-accessorizing clearly adds a distinctive effect to the look, and I buttoned the shirt only partway to showcase the lacy bralet and add a seductive tone to the outfit as well. Finally, I had to add my ZOE boots to create a touch of wild!  They are amazingly fabulous and always give an extra playful touch to my look because of their eye-catchy designs!

This whole look is also about the makeup. I finally got this dark purple lip stick at MAC, which color is definitely a must-have this year to easily achieve a grunge look. I picked

MAC Satin Cyber

. I totally adore the color, even though I was sort of afraid whether the color would look good on me or not... However, any doubt was gone right after I applied it to tryout! I am so flattered to have the color now! This fall I really wanna try other colors as well! :) What color should I go for?

I hope you like/love my first grunge look and make up!!!!!
