the life of a teenage fashionista

TGIF, amen, we did it. If you didn't check out my last YouTube video where I collabed with KKW Beauty, make sure you do. The highlighters will have you glowing like the star on top of a Christmas tree. That last line may or may not have been strongly influenced by my holiday music Spotify playlist that I have been blasting since the first day of November.

I'm at that point in college where Thanksgiving break is creeping up which means a bunch of deadlines are about to hit me like a brick. Don't fear though, luckily I've been meticulously planning and as long as procrastination doesn't hit in the next week I'll be just fine. I've got my eyes on the prize...Black Friday.

Cold-shoulder and off-shoulder pieces have to be one of my favorite trends of 2016. I love this oxford-esque top that reminds me of my school uniform days, but in more of a Serena van der Woodsen chic way. I paired it with these ripped jeans because if fabric is missing from the top, why not rip the jeans too. I am obsessed with the bold color of these pumps, and it fit in perfectly with the hues of blue. 

Have a beautiful weekend!

As promised, here I am with another video, finally! I'm totally, completely, 100% shook that I am typing this, but I am so excited to have collabed with KKW Beauty to do this review. Yes, THE KKW BEAUTY, as in THE Kim Kardashian West's line. I did a first impressions video on their Powder Contour & Highlight Kit, so watch to see if I think it is worth the cost, how it works on my skin, and more.

HAPPY FRI-YAY! This week literally flew by and I have to say it was a 10/10 in terms of getting stuff done. It went something around the lines of:

Saturday. shopping + developing content
Sunday. New York Jets football game (God bless that we were able to somehow finesse indoor club seat tickets because the nor'easter storm was rough)
Monday. conference calls about an upcoming beauty collaboration with one of the hottest items of the moment (video coming soon), oh and my attempt to finish a paper while pretending to be a Spotify DJ
Tuesday. NYC Halloween parade  
Wednesday. Louis Vuitton 'Volez, Vogue, Voyagez' exhibition tour, lunch at NoMo Kitchen, and a Hobo Bags private event
Thursday. completing a heaping pile of schoolwork and cleaning because I guess I'm supposed to be adulting now
Friday. ready for the weekend and lowkey not feeling this quiz I'm about to take (which I must get a 100% on because I've gotten all 100's so far in this class and the lowest grade gets dropped, so since I have all perfect scores I get to skip the last quiz of the semester as long as I get 100% on this one..if that made any sense)

 Today is another one of those bipolar days because we're back in the 70s again in NYC and it's November. This baby doll top with ribbon shoulder straps from Shein literally has my heart. I go from street style to girly, frilly pieces like this so fast. You feel?

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend..xx

Well it took about two months to get it together, but I think I can finally say that college feels as normal as it's going to feel. Therefore I'm back on the blog. The school workload isn't bad at all, actually much easier than I pictured, but everything else is pure culture shock. The best part by far is the fact that everyday I wake up in NYC. Rise & grind.

I can say that I have had a creative enlightening during my little time off and I have so many ideas I've been working on. I've realized that a lot of my Instagram is pretty much what my bio says: life(style). I love my job in the industry, exploring, and doing fun things while keeping it stylish. I want to keep Omnivogues in line with that and roll out more lifestyle & real life content. I love my fashion and it isn't going anywhere, but let's be blogs are everywhere, but there is only one Raquel Ringgold and my adventures that are unique to myself. I don't want to show off the same cookie-cutter looks because everyone else is doing it. With that being said, I will do style like this post, but there will be an even larger variety of content coming out soon.

Halloween is next week (what even) and usually it is North Face, brick cold temperatures going on in New York, but recently it has been warm. Warm enough for this floral crochet shift dress from Shein. I'm not complaining because I am in love with this dress, but I'm just a little shook. Anyway, I've really been liking soft blues shades lately and finding myself wearing lots of tops in this range. This dress really gives me Parisian vibes. It's so chic, but classy, and can we talk about how ah-mazing the floral crochet neckline is.

In the midst of NYFW, I took a break from the usual shows and instead teamed up to do a rad collaboration with Teen Vogue, Millie Bobby Brown, & Converse. A handful of Teen Vogue It Girl's were chosen to represent the mag at the private event, so this past Saturday we all met up at the Converse store in SoHo, Manhattan, to do some cool things (or should I say Stranger Things...!)

It didn't take any time for Millie to head on out and join us downstairs at the Blank Canvas studio to design Converse. Before we arrived she spent time picking out her top ten sneaker designs. I've done DIY projects many times in my life, but there is nothing like DIY with Millie Bobby Brown by your side. I can't even begin to explain how adorable and infectious her personality is. Especially being in such a private setting, it was cool to see Millie just doing her thing without all of the cameras around. 

For what felt like the hardest life decision ever, I picked one of Millie's favorite designs featuring the NYC skyline and customized them on a pair of denim Converse with pink ring holes (which Millie was veryyyy happy about) and grey laces, oh and Millie's autograph on the inside. I can't wait for them to get delivered to me to see our final masterpiece.
