"All Hail McQueen!"

Just a little preview of my DIY accessory wall that I'm working on. I decided to pay a little tribute to my favorite designer of all time, the late Alexander McQueen. I bought the mirror, skull, and crystal accents at Michaels. It definitely looks high end, but it was amazingly affordable. I wanted to add push lights to let it stand out at night. I just think it makes my shelf a little more special. Stay tuned for the finish product!

Who is SC?


My name is Shawn, but you can call my alter ego SC.
Shawn's laid back, mellow, and reserved; however, SC is a whole different story.

Who is SC?
I'm a island boy with big city dreams! I'm a Fashion blogger/enthusiast in Las Vegas, Nevada; however, I'm originally from the island of Saipan in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I work in retail for a living and I enjoy what I do. I'm outgoing, optimistic, and an all-around-pal! I love thrifting, DIY projects, and anything else that allows me to get creative. My style changes depending on my mood. On my free time, I enjoy exploring and studying both men and women's fashion. Accessories are my best friends! 

Lastly, please don't light my fuse.:)



Vintage Designer Neckties


Christian Dior, Oscar De La Renta, Halston

I went to my local Goodwill only to discover these 3 designer vintage neckties! A gentleman donated his huge vintage collection and I snagged these 3 the minute I saw them. I wish I came in the day before because I must have miss some even better pieces, but it's okay. The print on 2 of the neckties are a bit crazy; however, I'm sure I can think of something.

Since today was 50% off of white tags I only paid $4.50... FOR ALL 3! What?! I know, I know, I can't believe it either!

Starbucks


I absolutely love Starbucks! Today, I was encouraged to mix both the Very Berry Hibiscus and Cool Lime refreshers together. I think it's an interesting combination. I always get excited when I'm given suggestions on a new drink. What are your thoughts on Starbucks and their new beverages?

Accessories Shelf


Just a tiny preview of something I'm working on. This 6 cube white shelf was 50% off at Michael's so I got it for only $27. What a steal! I found a bunch of decorations at Goodwill. You'll be surprise what you find in there.

My accessories are going to have a new home. I shall post the finish product in a few days. Stay tuned! :)

ASOS.com




Ordered from ASOS for the first time. I was really impressed with how they packaged their jewelry. My obsession for colored chinos and trousers is hitting the roof right now, but I couldn't resist! Each pair was on clearance and under $20. They're transitional pieces so I can definitely see myself wearing them in the fall. I will be shopping at asos.com more often.

PS: Please forgive me for using my Instagram photos. I promise I will make use of my SLR camera in the future.
