The Violaceous Peacock: African & Aztec Fashion


Hola Peeps!
Great day and the final day of school. Its all over. Thank goodness. So next week I do plan on seeing peeps of mine I have not talked to lately. I have been doing my own thing. Which is normal I hear. Life is still going good. Still a bit anxious at the fact that its August. Thing are coming together in there own way. So much happening. So much I wanna yell out but Im such a caged bird at times. Im enjoying this week I must say, even though its going slower than usual. The bedroom looks amazing. I redid it and organized everything. I love it. I want to be more clean and less messy. I feel once you bring a child up their going to look at you and what you do. I would hate to be such a junky person and to pass that habit on to her. Then again my parents were clean freaks and I became the messy junky daughter. Who knows. All I do know is I am becoming someones role-model very soon. Sounds crazy. Last year I would have never thought. Im cool with it though. This is a new chapter in my life that was bound to happen one of these days. Just earlier than expected. I love looking around and seeing change. Change in the room, change in myself, change all around me...
Its very satisfying.
Enough with my life, on to fashion. I was flipping threw my Tumblr wall and saw this awesome magazine cover. Talk about inspiration to rock a head scarf. I have been on this ethnic/Aztec/ Tribal look for months now and I don't see it fading away anytime soon. It looks great with my hair and skin, can't lie. But its so fun looking at patterns and fringes. I love it. So when I saw the cover I thought "Ima rock the shit outta a headscarf..."

Inspiration:

Wasn't hard to wrap at all. I thought about the many ways you can wrap a head scarf and I decided to stick to this one. I found this scarf in the back of my closet, I remember buying it from World Market for about 9.99. World Market is another store with cool jewelry that is pretty tribal influenced, I get it a lot of my buddha stuff from there as well. Headscarfs are an awesome accessory if you think about it. You don't even have to do your hair...
Top: Target
Blazer: Torrid
Jeans: Torrid "Source Of Wisdom"
Head Scarf: World Market
Jewelry: Forever 21
Bag: Forever 21
I can't get enough of this bag. I think Forever 21 has the best bags these days. At least to me...There expensive sometimes but...sexy as hell.
More Shots Below:



*Sigh*
I wish I could buy more tribal looks but I have noticed they are cut for the smaller crowd. Forever 21 has the best tribal shirts EVER! But sometimes I can't pull off every damn top they have in that store. Especially now...given the boobooski...
Here are some extra accessories that I would buy in a heartbeat if it was my size or around my budget..

Tribal Bracelets:
Oooooooh...

Aztec Pants:
I want, I want, I want....but never in a larger size..
Hippie Bag:
The purple one has my heart. Why don't I ever find stuff like this...?

Chief Scarves:
I would wear these on my head honestly....

Native Moccasins:
I would die for these, I want these more than Oxfords! Ughh I wish...and Im sure they don't have a size 11 or 10...

Boho Tee's:
Sure these stop at large...

Native American Sacks:
*died*
I want all these things. Ughhh...the pain....

Rose's Shoe Challenge:
She is still going. Those who are new to the blog Rose my b.f.f has challenged herself to wear a different pair of shoes everyday for a month. Yes, she has that many shoes. If you look closely, her nail polish color changes by mood from pink to violet. So both pictures are the same polish just different colors. Pretty sweet right?
We'll here are her shoes from the past few days:

Red F-Me Pumps:


Beaded Pink Wedge:



Celebrity Candy

Zoe Kravitz:
Did you know her dad is going to be in the Hunger Games movie? Can't wait. Love her style. So Lisa Bonet mixed with Lenny Kravitz...pretty much her parents...lol! Love her shoes.

Angela Simmons:
So Angela is having a new line of clothes coming out. She posted on her Twitter her in some of the clothes. I love her. She is so cute and I adore her. I wish he would post more of her fashion. Her style is crazy.
Killer Shoes...
She is so hot.

Solange Knowles:
Need I say more?

Kourtney Kardashian:
Not my favorite Kardashian (that would be Khole) but when it comes to clothes she kills them all. Im sure given she is the smallest one. Love the romper. Love her colors.
hot.

More Kourt:
Kim K:
Yeah Yeah...I can't stand her but the outfit redeemed her..and that bag. Jesus! Gimmie her money!

Jessica White:
Beautiful yellow...I lovie...

Tika Sumpter:
Um..this chick be doing the damn thing. Im a huge fan.
I hear her and Trey songs are kinda "close"....just sayin...
"Owwww"

Mya:
Love her body. She use to be so skinny. I wonder how she started thickening up? I mean wow. Greg would fall out of his chair... ekk!

Welp! Tonights The Night!

Can't wait to watch it, hopefully Greg comes home on time. We can chill and eat some good food and laugh at Snooki and crew. Yay! The crew is back!

  1. You're not wrong, you really do suit the aztec/tribal look! Loving the accessories today. I need to get to a Forever 21; too bad there's only 2 in England and they're nowhere near me -_- And it's interesting to hear someone say they love seeing change. I hate change; I am absolutely a creature of habit!
    Do you have a Tumblr? I want to follow you :) x

  3. I love your shirt. I could waste so much time in Forever 21. As far as Mya, I'm glad she thickened up. She was so skinny that I wanted to throw a sandwich at her. She looks healthier.

  11. Sooo your shirt is superrrr cute!! Love it. Love the bag too, anything purple makes me happy. And i totally agree Forever 21 can be outrageous with their bag prices!! Target & H&M have less expensive and better quality bags in my book.

    I need to talk about Mya for a minute...her body is RIDICULOUS!!! I just got a little upset...lol.

    Khole is my fav Kardashian too...she has the best style and personality out of the bunch.

    Angie & Tika can do no wrong in my book....love those girls. Cant wait for Angie's clothing line to debut!!
