An Exciting Announcement on LHWIW!

I have an exciting announcement for Lavender Hair and What I Wear! I was recently given the opportunity for an internship at College Fashionista! College Fashionista is a website for college students (all genders welcome) to get fashion inspiration and to see what other students are wearing at your college, and colleges across the country. It's an extremely exciting opportunity for me, as fashion journalism is what I'd ultimately like to do with my life, and I'm blessed to be able to participate in this internship.

I also thought I'd share this outfit, as this was what I used for my "Style Guru Bio" which will launch on College Fashionista this week. Enjoy! xx

In this outfit, I wore a black long sleeve velvet crop top, American Apparel easy jeans in Merlot, an open-front patterned poncho, my favorite pair of black cut-out booties, and a wide-brimmed hat complements of OASAP. This outfit was perfect for my New Year's Eve day festivities.

I hope everyone had a happy holidays and are ringing in the New Year surrounded by people they love. And if not, come steal a kiss! :*

Caught in a Purple Haze

Hey all! So, I know I said that I was going to try to post more frequently, and I also know I've failed at that thus far. However, it's still a goal of mine to maintain this blog at least monthly, so bare with me!

Oasap has sent me some lovely goodies once again, and I'd love to share them with you.

The first item I was sent was this Cableknit Sweater in the color Violet. I picked this because I've been getting really in to chunky sweaters, and it matches my hair color for the most ~kawaii~ of looks.

Oasap is selling this sweater for only $16.90, and it's more than worth it! The material is thick and soft, and it's not overly baggy. It's labeled as "One Size," and fits like a medium. 

The next two items I received were the Semi-Sheer Yoke Blouse in white, which retails for $18.51, and the Sweet Candy Color Beret in Black, which retails for $5.90. 

This blouse is probably one of my favorite things I've ever received from Oasap. Although it's a light material, it's not see-through in the slightest and I absolutely adore the upper mesh part of the top! It adds a unique dimension that a normal short-sleeve button-up just wouldn't accomplish. I paired it with houndstooth print shorts and black thigh high socks, but I'm also daydreaming about doing a completely white outfit using this top, a tulip skirt, and some chunky heels from Topshop; I think I'll have to wait until next spring for that, unfortunately. The beret was chosen last minute on a whim, but I'm so glad I got it! The material is thick, and it's a perfect addition to any outfit because although it's a plain color, it adds that cute/quirky feel an outfit is sometimes missing.

I hope you enjoyed my dorky webcam photos. Until next time!
