If you follow me on Instagram (_carmenalexandra) then you've probably already seen and fallen in love with my python print leggings. Last week my boss asked me to pick up a few things and stop by and see some new arrivals in various showrooms in the fashion district. The moment I laid eyes on these leggings I fell in love and immediately ordered it in stock for the store, the ones I'm wearing never even made it on a hanger, they didn't stand a chance! They will be available for purchase online later this week but for now you can call ShopDAME to order. As I mentioned a while back, I'm also doing costume design for an elementary school production of The Wizard of Oz, we have shows Wednesday- Sunday and I'm super excited, of course,I recycled everything I could in it. My schedule is about to get a little crazy but I'll still be blogging :) Happy Sunday-Funday! xoxo

I found this skirt (100% leather only $8) at Gdub! I'd been wanting a knee length leather pencil skirt but the fit of this one at the bottom was awkward. No love lost because I couldn't help but to recycle it into this! I've been in love with the asymmetrical skirt and skort trend so when I got the idea I HAD to do it! My electric top is from my the most stylish boutique in Santa Monica, CA called DAME, their online store is still on the come up but you can call to order! I found my heels at Forever21, they had a white strap at the toes but I painted it black and gave it a matte look on accident but I love it! Have you recycled anything lately? I'd love to see it!
Stay tuned for recycled Christmas gifts and a ugly sweater D.I.Y!

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving,I know I sure did! I'm not only thankful for good food and fun family times but I'm also thankful for my readers and followers! xoxo. The two favorite items from thanksgiving OOTD were both from gdub, my plaid wool shorts ($5) and lace top ($3). The shorts actually went down to my knees so I def had to do some cutting and sewing lol. I can't believe it's almost Christmas! Who's ready for a ugly Christmas sweater D.I.Y? :)

More random than that Lyss and I also ran into Tyler The Creator while taking blog pics! Is it Thanksgiving yet??? lol

After going through a bunch of boxes I finally found all of my colored and printed tights! I'm so excited! My addiction to them started about two years ago, I'd buy them ALL of the time when they'd go on sale. For the past 8 years I've lived in a place where it doesn't get too cold but but cold enough for fun tights and light sweaters :) I can't wait to blog in them again!

While I;m home for a week I figured it was only right to take pictures here. Some of my favorite blog pictures were taken in front of these doors, the back doors in my house. I've never been a big fan of the color red but this fall and winter I've been gravitation toward it so much lately! My blazer is from a Gdub in LA, it was only $6! The denim pearl bracelet as well as the leather bow bracelet are from my bracelet line, the leather wrap bracelet was a birthday gift from my mommie. I fell in love with my glasses last week in the fashion district, only $5! I've never been much of a silver girl but lately I've been getting into it! Apologise for the pictures looking a little grainy, didn't notice until I uploaded them :/ Have an awesome week!
Comment below and follow my blog, I'll follow you back!

Anyone in LA is probably wondering how in the world I'm wearing a sweater in this 90 degree weather but I'm in Georgia for a week!I decided to surprise everyone, mainly my mom. I didn't want to spend my birthday week with anyone but my closest friends and family. About my outfit, I wore this on the way to my favorite pizza place for dinner with my mom. My sweater is from a gdub in LA, probably my most favorite find in a while! I wear it all of the time now, it's Calvin Klein and was only was $5 which was a pleasant surprise, gdubs in Cali are more expensive. Happy Thursday!
