I’m a brat, I’m a selfish punk, I really should be smacked

   Lets ignore the long absence and jump right into the stellar outfits.  Thats right, outfits-plural, because I have a fashionista buddy!  Introducing Derek, my Kirk to my Annie (wearitbothways.tumblr.com)

Dip dye has been my latest obsession, and its something easy to DIY as well.  Get ready because…the shirt below was thrifted and DIY’ed.  While you pick up jaw off the floor, let me explain the super difficult process.

1.  thrift a shirt

2.  getcha self some bleach

3.  find a cheap bucket and fill it with the bleach

4.  dip the thrifted shirt into the bucket and let it rest for 3 minutes

5.  wash and wear-repeatedly

Now wipe the sweat off your eyebrow because it was crazy complicated and enjoy our own version of wear it both ways!

Shorts: Old Navy (now on sale for $10!), Top: Thrifted & DIY’ed, Sandals: Old Navy

wishlist wed- update my closet

wishlist wed- update my closet

There has been a drought in my closet! haven’t been shopping in what feels like forever so todays wishlist wednesday is what my closet needs- go to outfits for any occasion!

Crochet dresses are a must for the summer (have my eye on this LC for kohl’s one!) but i added some funkiness with the boat shoe trend.

Every girl needs a modern dress reserved for sassy events and the Alexander Wang dress is calling me.  Paired with those super cute and super cheap Zara sandals and neon accents, this outfit just screams my name right?

The $50 BB Dakota dress is perfect for summer dates (with friends or your significant other!).  I chose the nude heels to elongate the leg and stand out accessories to keep the look interesting.

what do you need in your closet right now?  xo, Marcela

wishlist wed: summer jewels

summer jewels

accessories are crucial during the summer, because unlike clothing, they don’t cause much discomfort in the sun.  invest in colorful pieces that can take your outfit to another level, and remember to have fun with them!

Dinner with Anna Wintour, racing with Anja Rubik

lets add some bright color into our lives! Wearing neon during finals might just do the trick in keeping you from crashing on top or your desk, and as a bonus, you’ll look completely put together and trendy during this crazy time.

Now, I wasn’t really sure about the neon trend when it first hit the runways, but after seeing different variations of it, I decided to give it a try with this neon tank top from Old Navy (a steal at $3).  I paired it with my Forever21 sleeveless trench to tone it down a bit, and I keep the rest of the outfit relatively minimal and simple.  Baby steps!
