I’ve renamed this blog post about 4 times, but I think I finally have a title that’s going to stick. Here I have two blogshoots, both using my new Givenchy lipsticks, although ones a pretty raspberry and the other is a light nude rose. Two completely different outfits, but both are representations of some new things in my life. I can’t wait until I get new clothes but for now, I have this to post!
Interesting story I just remembered…When I was in 3rd or perhaps 4th grade, I was stylin’ and cute as ever (of course). I think that was the time when I was transitioning from buying everything from Gymboree at my younger ages to Justice. I always had like one store that was my designated store for as long as possible before I got tired of it. First it was Gymboree (I still remember adding stuff to my cart and creating wishlists on there and ordering from there every season when I was like 7) and then it became Justice, which I became SO passionate about. Neon green jeans, peace sign tees, neon everything actually… Then it was briefly Kohl’s at I transitioned into middle school and junior high. And now it’s Nasty Gal. It’s been Nasty Gal for years. BUT back to my point…
In 3rd grade(ish) I was wearing such an adorable outfit one day. But when I went out to recess and saw that it was raining, I was SO cold. My friends asked why I didn’t have a jacket and I’m like “Because I’m wearing this shawl thing!” my mom and teachers kept telling me that a shawl isn’t a jacket, lol. So I hid in the corner of the blacktop just waiting for the cold to end, but dang I looked so adorable. These light pink colors with fun soft patterns — I don’t even own a shawl right now, but it’s cool that I did at some point! I’ve always been so fashion savvy. Hmm wait maybe I have old pictures. HAHAHA I was looking for old fashionable pictures of myself but all I found was a bunch of super hilarious pictures from 2007-2009! HAHA omg like when I got my first eyeshadow palette and Maren and I played with it… Or when Maren and I made music videos to the songs Can’t Be Tamed and Toxic. I was such a funny child.
That’s so funny. Alright we all can have some great laughs at that. Anyway. Moving on.
Lately I’ve been wanting a pair of white sneakers. Pretty random, yes, and I’m not really sure why I want some. But the last time I got new sneakers it was my black vans, like nearly 3 years ago. And other than that I have another pair of vans but in bright orange that I got from Plato’s Closet and then I have these interesting high-tops from Shoedazzle from like 4-5 years ago. Other than that, all my old adventuring sneakers and stuff have retired. So I’m thinking…wouldn’t it be cool if I got a pair of those white Gucci sneakers? They have like a MILLION different designs for them. Tbh, these are the ones I want. Aren’t they so cute? OR THESE but I’m not sure how they would look with the heel down. Cool idea though. But I don’t necessarily have $600 to spend on a pair of sneakers…Like I would totally use my credit for them but my credit limit is $500! haha. But I don’t know, I was thinking of just getting these Kendall + Kylie ones, because they’re affordable and adorable and obviously that’s one of my favorite brands. Hmm… By the time I post this I’ll hopefully have bought one of those already. It’ll be so perfect! For all my adventures walking a longass time in the woods, they’ll get dirty but they’ll show so many memories!
Last weekend, I wore something pretty interesting. Honestly, the outfit was…just so Abby. So completely in tune with me, and that’s not a bad or good thing. It was a strange outfit and I’m still not even sure if I was able to pull it off, but it’s definitely something that I would wear and it definitely spoke volumes. There were some little pieces to this look that were really annoying, but mostly it was a super fun outfit and I’m glad I wore it. I only got a few pictures, but I thought I’d show them anyway.
It’s such a bright beautiful day outside! I’m so happy, things really have been looking up. I didn’t know it could be this good. But anyway, still haven’t been shopping as much, however I did order from The Kylie Shop and get a flame lighter, Kylie socks, two iPhone cases, and these awesome flame sweatpants. They’re size S but they’re really huge, and SO comfy! This photoshoot is called Girl On Fire.
In 2002 (age 4), I was trying on a dress using the slip that my mom bought for it. After putting on the slip, I thought it was so cute! I asked my mom if I could wear it by itself but she said no. But I was so excited about how it looked so I threw on some purple socks and used a head-flashlight thing as an accessory. I started modeling for them until my mom finally got the camera. I had loved this shoot, it was so fun, and that’s one of my earliest memories when it comes to fashion. And so on life went…
I don’t think people even realize how crazy that New York trip was to me. My boring life, my lack of lust for life in my “photoshoots”, and yet I proved so many things for myself.
Okay, so first off: I was going to Teen Vogue in NY and so I had to pack up for the weekend. So the night before, I was sitting there with Ally and I realized I needed to pack my clothes for the trip. I grabbed a few gorgeous shirts, with lace and mesh and all that jazz, just because I loved them. Then I grabbed some typical bottoms, including some bold pieces…and I totally brought those red long pants with the lace halter top and how the colors match perfectly its like crazy! I didn’t try any of this on before going! It’s amazing…
So I wrote that on May 19th as a part of this Diary of a Shopping Enthusiast. Honestly what was I even talking about? Yeah the New York trip was super cool, and yes it is cool that I ended up with such great outfits even though I just grabbed a bunch of random things, but I always do that. (By the way, as I write this it’s May 31st). Heck I mean last Tuesday I had to bring 4 outfits for my headshots, and all I did was take a ton of shirts and pants and shoes and put them into a bag really quickly because I was running late. Turns out I picked SUCH great pieces! My photographer picked out outfits from the bunch of random clothes that I had, and they all turned out to be dope. One of my favorite dresses (a cute blue one) went so well with my retro-esque floral chunky sandal heel shoe things. Hahaha it looked so good, and we found a cool alley and I can’t wait to see the pictures.
Good morning! I know I haven’t been blogging as much lately, and that’s because my life has been HECTIC. Not going too much into my personal life but there was a breakup and blah blah, so I haven’t felt as inspired as I typically used to be. But hey! I did a photoshoot last week (in collaboration with Seattle Talent) where I got some new headshots done but we also did 3 modeling shoots. It was so fun! I walked around Seattle in like 6in chunky heels for like 5 miles, but it was so fun. I can’t wait to see the pictures next week. BUT! I should show y’all the last shoot I did before I lost inspiration.
I got this dress on sale from Nasty Gal and it is most definitely in my top 5 favorite dresses list! This and a blue one (you’ll see that next week) I got last month and I’m so in love with them. This shoot is kinda different because my makeup was a MESS, I went through a whole day and then just slapped on another lipstick over the mess and it was a pretty messy makeup look, but who cares? I love this outfit. These shoes with this dress >>>>

I’ve got that fire in my soul.
Aww so here in Seattle we had a few really good sunny days, and I was able to kind of shoot outside! It was totally test-lighting though, with lots of different settings on my camera. But the best part of this is my Mirina Collections famous necklace, and it’s called Abby! (which is also my name). This was such a fun shoot, kind of more artsy than the others. I want better scenery pictures. But here we go, here’s me myself & i, Abby wearing an Abby necklace!
This is definitely more of an artsy-experimental shoot, rather than fashion. I should’ve shown off this dazzling necklace better!
Good morning world. How are you? I need to show you guys my shoots from The 1975 concert. What I wore to the concert, and how I wore the merch I got. I attended the show on April 30th, 2017 in Seattle at the WaMu Theater. One of my favorite traditions. I’ve begun to start experimenting more with my fashion, so I haven’t been shooting as much. But I wanted to show these! These shoots are called The 1975 and By Your Side!
“So I’ve got edges that scratch, and sometimes I don’t got a filter. But I’m so tired of eating all my misspoken words… I know my disposition gets confusing,” – Banks, Beggin For Thread
Banks is one of my current favorite artists. My favorite song by her is Trainwreck, but the song Beggin For Thread is so iconic! So I was listening to her Goddess album while I was trying to decide what to do next for a blog outfit. Finally I got the idea! Mostly I wanted to use the new goodies I got from Mirina Collections, but I also kind of wanted to stay casual. So I whipped up this look, denim on denim, kinda raw and if you notice the fact that all of it is ripped/distressed/cut then that’s a good observation. That’s why I used Beggin For Thread as a name. The lyric is “You got me beggin for thread to sew this hole that you ripped in my head,” and I don’t actually have any holes in my head that can be fixed with thread, but I thought it was interesting that I was listening to this as I was uploading this shoot to my laptop. My jeans are ripped, my jacket is distressed, and I chopped my tank top in half jaggedly like 4 years ago. And I added a blingy Mirina Collections necklace, and the look was complete!! I’m so happy with how it ended up. I took a bold statement blingy necklace, threw it on with some destroyed clothing and I felt so bomb. The look is bomb! Now finally I’m going to show it to y’all.
