Lindex Coat – Langford Market pants – Thrifted top – H&M handbag and necklace – Zara Shoes

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you have had a great weekend so far! For today’s look I opted for clean lines and neutral colors with a cobalt twist. I cannot believe I scored this top at Buffalo Exchange for 3$ over 5 years ago! It is truly the perfect color to make any outfit pop, over Christmas my friends and I had secret santa and I got this beautiful matching blue H&M bag. Doesn’t it go great with the top? For my neutrals I picked my flared Langford Market nude pants and an oversized white coat from Lindex. Hope you guys liked this look, and stay tuned for more posts coming!

Urban Outfitters Coat – Langford Market lace top – Lindex Skirt – Target boots – Karen Walker sunglasses – Prada handbag -

Hope your weekend is going well, I just came back from a early cross fit workout with my friend Elsa. It’s good to start off 2015 sticking to my new years resolutions. Did you guys make any? I usually make too many, but this year I only have one, to be more effective with my day. Which probably includes many smaller goals, like finishing my workouts before classes start or having the blog post ready by noon.

For this look I am wearing a new pink lace top from Langford Market. Whenever I saw it in store I immediately loved it, but I found it hard to pair it with anything from my wardrobe. Here I went with a pale pink coat from Urban Outfitters and a huge tulle skirt. As usual I kept accessories to a minimum, only wearing my Karen Walker sunglasses and a Prada tote. Hope you liked this look, and enjoy the rest of your weekend. If you live close to a Langford Market, check out their amazing sale!

Langford Market blazer and top, H&M skirt, Chanel handbag, Target over the knee boots and Urban Outfitters sunglasses

I love the color, fit and style of this beautiful nude/pale pink Langford Market blazer. I had been looking for a long blazer that could pass as a dress for a while, so when I found this piece I was sold! If you are feeling daring, try wearing this without anything, like you would a dress. Check out these two looks:   1 or 2). I paired it with a staple striped pencil skirt, over the knee boots and my all time favorite handbag, the classic flap by Chanel. I decided to continue playing with the pink/nude color palette with my U.O sunglasses and nude nails. The black Langford Market top I am wearing has become such a wardrobe staple, a super easy piece for effortless everyday looks as well as a good choice for dressing up for a night out or an event. If you live close to a Langford Market location you should check out their amazing sale, or click to see their selection here.

Hi there,

Hope you had a great weekend so far (or Monday, depending on where you are clicking in from). I am a huge fan of statement coats, jackets that make an outfit go from ordinary to chic. I paired this wool coat from Urban Outfitters with a simple black outfit and my new pearl sunglass bands (how cool are they?) I feel like a grandma for liking them, but they were just too fun to pass up on.

Studio Plant: Beard

DSC_0877
DSC_0872

Hi guys!
I have been so excited to show you my collaboration with Austin art collective Studio Plant. As some of you might now I am a huge fan of interior design and I also love hunting for fun, unique and cool prints and art pieces for our place. The piece entitled ‘Beard’ captured my attention as I saw it walking to campus, so I got in touch with the Studioplant team and we teamed up to show you some of their art pieces.

Studioplant is a conceptual lifestyle studio shop, with focus on handmade items, outsider art, and appropriation art theory. As I mentioned before the painting I fell completely for is entitled ‘Beard’ by artist Daniel K. Felicetti. If you are interested in Studioplant and their work, go check out their website at  www.studioplant.com  or contact them for more information at studioplantinfo@gmail.com. They also do custom art or commissions, what a fun and different gift for someone you love!

Here are some other great pieces:

Hi there loves,

I am so sorry for my absence on Fashion Conspiracy, hopefully you guys follow my Instagram: @fashion.conspiracy ? Usually if I am ever inactive here, there are still some posts going up there. I want to wish all of you happy new year, hopefully 2014 treated you well and you are ready for a new year with new challenges and adventures.

I am happy that I completely forgot to post these wonderful shots from this past summer. Alex and I travelled out to one of the oldest parks in Barcelona named Parc De Labyrinth D’Horta and I loved how the light and backdrop complimented one of my favorite dresses ever, can you believe it was 30$ at Lindex? Anyways, I hope you enjoy this lookbook and there will be more posts up on the blog today, so stay tuned.

Hi there!

I hope finals week is not treating you guys too bad! I have been at the library all week it feels like. Atleast it`s all over soon, one more week guys! thought I would post a more casual look on the blog, since most of what I wear on the blog is more dressed up. I love this look, it`s super simple and comfortable! I got these jeans at Langford Market, and I cannot stop wearing them, they are so easy to move around in and fit great! I paired my white jeans with a pair of black converse (a staple every gal should have in my opinion!) and my favorite checked coat from River Island, which is on sale now guys! To make it a little more put together I accessorized with  a big chunky necklace, a pair of mirrored sunglasses and a simple bangle. I hope you like this look, and good luck with finals everyone!

Handbags 101

DSC_0951-1024x682

Everyone who read Fashion Conspiracy knows my endless love for handbags. There is something about a high quality bag that can elevate an look instantly. So when Rue la la approached me to do a post about handbags and how to care for them, I was thrilled. I have wanted to give you guys some tips and tips regarding handbags for example how to store them, handbag care and types. I think the reason why I love handbags so much is how they transform a look. I typically wear my more pricy handbags with a 20$ H&M dress, and voila the entire outfit looks more expensive!

My favorite type of bag is most definitely the tote bag, it stores everything you could want in one bag. As a student I need enough room for my notebook, planner and MAC. That is some of the reasons why I really liked the Prada Saffiano Lux tote. For those days I am bringing more than usual to class I switch to the slightly larger Michael Kors jet set tote, such a spacious bag at a great price. Also, if you are looking for this type of tote and want something in between the Prada and the Michael Kors, this Tory Burch Robinson bag is perfect!
I also really like the tote style for travel, it is a great way to get all your essentials on board.

lthough I love the tote styled bags, I must say that my favorite all time bag has to be the Chanel Classic Flap bag. It is such a timeless handbag that I feel goes with everything. I tend to use it if I am going out for dinner with friends or for a date night with Alex. I would probably never use this bag downtown, so for nights out I typically use my Michael Kors trio handbag.

DSC_0863-682x1024

DSC_0616-682x1024
Also had to include this red crossbody bag from 3.1 Phillip Lim. It’s the perfect pop of color and it is surprisingly spacious, I can fit a large sunglass case, wallet, phone, lipstick and some makeup (for extra space inside the bag, simply unzip the sides!). The leather is durable and the bag does not scratch easily. Looking at it now, I think I tend to choose handbags that are made to be more durable, both the caviar leather on the Classic flap, as well as the Saffiano leather on the Prada handbag are super user friendly. It is not that kind of leather that your keys will ruin the look of the bag.

So, on to some of my handbag tips: 

1. When storing your bag, stuff it to maintain the shape of the handbag. I usually use foam, but I recently discovered these genius base shapers that maintains the shape of the bag and avoids bag sag!

2. Avoid storing your handbags in direct sunlight. I typically do not store them in their original box, but rather in their dust bag. If you bought your bag used or it did not come with a dust bag, most department stores sell them or maybe if you ask nicely you can get one for free from the designer. You could also protect the handbag by using a pillow case as a dust bag!

3. For more delicate leather types, make sure you purchase some leather care products to maintain the look of the bag.

4. Handbags made of natural fibers and leather handbags should also be stored in a climate-controlled area.

Jumpsuit – Longhorn Fashions, Shoes – Zara, Classic Flap – Chanel, Faux Fur – Lindex

Happy Friday everyone! I hope your week has been good so far? I am so excited to share my first ever collaboration with Austin boutique Longhorn Fashions. As I mentioned earlier this week, this is the look I wore for Theta and Pi Phi semi formal, I loved not wearing a dress and this jumpsuit might be up there with some of the most comfortable pieces I have ever worn. Super easy to move around in, and more importantly dance in! I paired it with my oversized faux fur for some extra drama and kept all accessories to a minimum. I really opted to the jumpsuit to shine on its own, and hey it’s pretty low cut, so I did not want to overdue the look adding to many elements. Add a pair off black pointy heels and my favorite Classic flap by Chanel and the look is complete. If you are looking for the perfect night out look, or maybe a semi formal outfit this jumpsuit does the trick. If you are not from Austin, click on this link to order one too (ps. it’s at a great price!). Or if you live in Austin like me, visit their store on 23 and Pearl.
