Zaful Lovin'

TOP // SKIRT // WATCH
Zaful has become one of my favorite online stores because they have an endless amount of items and I constantly find myself putting together potential outfits. Here is just a little bit of daily inspiration to envision serving looks, as I sit here suffering from allergies. xoxo.

Status: Feeling Motivated


Jeans and a bodysuit are becoming my new uniform and I like it. This bodysuit is a little bit more on the sparkly side, but who knows the party might start earlier in the day. Zaful just keeps on keeping on with the trends. Speaking of keep on keeping on; I just brought the song Motivation back into my playlist and hence the title I'm thrilled, ecstatic, relieved, etc. that there are only two months of school remaining. It's out with the old and in with the new (not a High School Musical pun at alllll).

I've been overly inspired lately and thank goodness because I have lots of plans for Omnivogues, along with life in general. Living the que sera sera life is great, but making a general outline will smooth things out through the process. Eh what am I saying, que sera sera my darlings.

xoxo Raquel

Spring Floral Sleeves


Happy First Day of Spring! At the slightest brink of warmth in the air, every blogger breaks out the basic spring clothing necessity- the black crop top. By warm I mean fifty degrees, but whatever it was nice while it lasted. Then I had to throw in that little floral bit to keep the spring vibes going with this lace sleeved zip-up jacket which is also from Sammydress.

This weekend I was really spoiled with having nothing scheduled to do. That's a first. I decided to keep it low-key and I went to see Beauty & the Beast on Saturday (I'm still on a Disney high from my trip) and got brunch at The Roundhouse in Beacon on Sunday. It was a nice break, but I'm really looking forward to this upcoming weekend. There is a lot to do in the city and I can't wait. Can't wait to take you behind-the-scenes for a fun experience. You'll just have to wait and see! xxx

Shamrock On

Happy St. Patrick's Day! We're all Irish on the 17th..
What a perfect day to wear a green jumpsuit. Looks like I'm spot on with the theme of the day. I need to mention that I am so glad this jumpsuit has pockets. Not sure if it's just me, but pockets literally give me a sense of comfort. Also, I am reaaaaaly liking the off-shoulder look right now. This whole outfit is from Amiclubwear, shoes included. I'm just glad I found another one of those perfect chunky heels that can be dressed up or down. Ohhh, and no you don't have to sit there and buckle each strap for five minutes. The zipper is on the back. Your welcome.

So, I'm back home from Florida which was nice as always. Gorgeous weather, amazing food, Disney princesses...the most depressing thing was coming back home to a massive blizzard. One second I was gazing at palm trees with a piƱa colada in hand and the next I was battling the snow and wearing five layers again (aaaaand I was still cold). It was a nice little break though and now I am hyped for the next breaks where I will have no worries once again..ex: spring break, summer vacation. I'm ready to break out the warm weather outfits.

Breaking the Rules

Okay, this jacket and white silk dress from Gamiss is my new favorite combo. The silk frenzy has been right up my alley. While I was wearing it I kept thinking about the belt and figured it is probably supposed to be worn as a neck tie, but what even are rules. Besides the unsaid rules of fashion, I've recently been trying to slow down overthinking by setting less rules and more fashion goals.

Fashion Myths Meant to be Broken

prints should match - glad this is dead and gone

only wear sneakers to the gym - come find me in Nike's 90% of the time

daytime/nighttime looks - I reallllly don't think a clock should determine an outfit

sweatpants shouldn't be worn outside the house - joggers and heels are quite the combo

bright colors are only for warmer weather - be the pop of color in the swarm of black winter coats

socks and open toe shoes - okay, I still can't feel the socks and sandals thing, but I'm all for socks and open toe heels

Only Queen

It was all over my social media, but my birthday was Feb. 26th and I am finally an adult now..but not really at the same time! I failed to do a birthday recap post on the blog, but if you follow me you definitely saw a good glimpse. I received a bunch of messages from you all and I responded, so thank you very very much. My birthday weekend was really fun. I was at The Plaza Hotel for a bit pretending I was Eloise (ha!). There I had afternoon tea at The Palm Court and the staff surprised me with special birthday macarons. How did they know that's my favorite? Definitely got the royal treatment. After I went to see Cirque du Soleli on Broadway which was fantastic. Then on my ACTUAL birthday I had another party and then a dinner. I'm so grateful and excited to see what I'm going to accomplish as a now official adult. 

How perfect is this Zaful bomber jacket for a pageant girl? Like pink AND a crown!? I'm a very happy Teen Miss U.S. of America today and I will be for the next few days because I'm headed to Disney World this week. I haven't been in almost two years, so I am due to go on Space Mountain and finally see the new outlets. Like the crazy, insane, OCD person I am I packed the other day and everything is perfectly organized. I'm that person.

Aisle Style

Wedding Party 1 | 2
You know what's approaching? Wedding season, prom season, pageant season...I need new dresses season. I was recently introduced to a popular dress store, Aisle Style UK, which provides the looks I obsess over in magazines. They have every type of dress you can think of: long bridesmaids dresses, special occasion, wedding party, and even plus size. I know many people shop online for dresses nowadays, but a lot of amazing options can be missed by only shopping in one physical store. Also, it is 10x easier if you're ordering pieces for large groups, like bridesmaid dresses, because Aisle Style has styles that are sometimes harder to find in every color like lace bridesmaids dresses and short bridesmaids dresses.

Personally with dresses I love two-pieces and mermaid style, but nothing beats a classic, simple gown. When it comes to the evening gown competition for pageants I usually think of two key things: something that flatters me + a gown that the judges will think is different. I've been seeing so many girls lately at competitions wearing the coolest dress colors that most people wouldn't go for, but it always looks on point. Seeing the same style/pattern dress gets boring at a pageant, prom, wherever. Enough is enough! Anyway, I picked some of the top picks from Aisle Style to inspire you for your next big event. 

What dress is you favorite and where would you wear it to?
