Hiatus

Hello friends,

It looks like I'm taking a break with She'll Be in Black. I just started a full-time job and time management is something I just haven't grasped yet. I promise I will be back, either here or with something new. I think about blogging, fashion, photography, and all those wonderful things on a daily basis so this is not me giving up. This is me focusing on my job that will bring me money and pave my future. Once I feel confident, comfortable and familiar to my new routine I will be back in FULL force. I cannot wait, you have no idea. As much as I want to try and balance it all right now and at once, I think it'll be more beneficial if I take care of the tasks at hand first- keeping this amazing job I landed, moving to the city, and starting my real adult life. :)

Wish me luck! And I will see you guys soon enough.

+Outfit+ Bathroom Mirror Edition


I don't normally take outfit photos in my bathroom mirror but this day I had no other choice :)

It's hard to balance yourself on 5" wedges and take a steady picture of yourself.
I painted these shorts the night before. There's my headscarf worn as a belt this time.

Mirror "selfies" are awkward and silly but I had to share with you my Fourth of July outfit!

Rug by Ikea, face wash by Neutrogena, Dina boots by JC (obvi)...

Happy Fourth of July America!

EZ-DIY: Tinted Lip Balm *that doesn't dry out your lips*

I carry a tub of Vaseline everywhere I go. It is amazing for chapped lips/skin! So you can imagine my excitement when I came across THIS DIY!


1) All you need is Vaseline and any color eyeshadow or blush. I used purple eyeshadow because I knew it would create the dark tint I was going for that is similar to my lipstick that dries my lips out.

2) SMASH the eyeshadow *smash smash SMASH* until you get that pretty colored dust and sprinkle it onto a clump of Vaseline.

3) Swirl it around until the dust is mixed perfectly with the Vaseline. I love this color!!!

And, ta-da! You have a tinted Vaseline-based lip balm! So in love and so ready to create more tints!

You're Welcome For Sharing ;)

Silver Platter Wisdom + Photographs + Short Story


My favorite place on earth (my room)...is 20 miles away from the city.

I've created an ideal space for myself but some day I will have to/ want to relocate to the city.

And when I do, I hope I am able to recreate the charm it has now. If not, I'll be sad in the city.

The End.

By the way... "THE TIME IS NOW...NOW IS THE TIME"

+Street Style+


I'd like to introduce you to tattooed hottie, Sara + wild child, Julian- friends I "ran into" on the streets of Denver looking stylish as always!


Sara just bought these shorts and I believe they are Levis. They fit beautifully and I love the detail! Sara is also rocking her signature brown boots, a nautical shoulder bag, and this colorful striped tank perfect for the hot weather.

Julian, who was spotted placing upcoming concert flyers around Broadway, has a great sense of style and a great head of hair. He's seen here wearing blue-rimmed glasses, a red sportswear tank, + cuffed jeans.

But my favorite part of his outfit is the combination of striped tube socks and working boots!

Love + Love

Photo Inspiration

Visited the Downtown Aquarium yesterday. These fish photos I took on my iPhone turned out great!

I love the colors in this tank. + I saw Glass Cat Fish for the first time and fell in love. They're completely see-through!

The Jelly Fish display is one of my favorites. I love the lighting. They are so naturally beautiful!

Harley Davidson tee + Lace

This Harley Davidson tee was having some issues. So I fixed it by adding a lace back to it! First sewing project since the beginning of She'll Be in Black :)


(see...)

(ta da!)
