Victoria La Mode x Uniqlo

Let's be real - I'm the kind of girl who needs the AC on at all times. I'm always slightly warmer than the average person, and now I'm literally staying cool thanks to Uniqlo's AIRism line!

The thinkers at Uniqlo don't mess around. They envisioned a functional product to be sweat absorbent, while staying cool and dry, eliminating odors and made from the finest fibers. And so AIRism was born! 

Not only does AIRism eliminate sweat and moisture, it releases heat from the body, contains anti-odor properties, and the fabric stays cool to the touch. Let's not forget that the material is smoother than a baby's bottom. I've been wearing this Uniqlo lounge dress, running errands in 80 degree weather, and the verdict is in: AIRism is everything it promises to be!

I'm wearing one of their lounge dresses that I dressed up with a statement necklace, and threw on some gladiators for extra pizazz. I finished the look with my cat-eye sunglasses, also from Uniqlo.

I hope everyone is out enjoying these sunny days and warm nights. Some of us wait all year for summer. Now that it's in full swing, let's make the best of it! Catch some rays, cruise aimlessly with the windows down, maybe even dip your feet in the water. 

I'm going to be at VidCon in Anaheim, California this week. If you're also going, be sure to say hello!

As always, thanks so much for reading!

Cut It Out

Dress: 2bella Boutique, Sandals: Michael Kors  |  Capture by Lux

Hi, friends! Today's look is all about cutouts. I've been seeing more and more cutouts on dresses, tops, pants and even shoes and I think they keep things interesting. If you're like me, you might have different variations of the same top. There's nothing wrong with a basic top, but it's nice to change it up and wear a different cut once in a while!

Caged, strappy or cutout tops show just enough skin to catch someone's eye without showing too much. How pretty is this caged dress from 2bella Boutique? I love the details such as the tiny rings connecting the straps and the embellished hem. Isn't the caged neckline more interesting than a basic tank dress? Because the dress is flowy, it pairs well with my Michael Kors gladiator sandals. Since this look is cute and a bit edgy, you could wear it day or night. I hope everyone is having a fabulous week! Thanks for reading, guys!

Schoolgirl Feelings

Top: Tildon (also worn here), Skirt: H&M (also worn here), Necklace: Xevana, Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell  |  Photos by Carl Mahoney

My skater skirt strikes again! I love the scuba-suit neoprene and the way it flounces as I move. It's probably my favorite H&M purchase to date! Naturally, I paired it with this sheer button-up and stockings for the classic schoolgirl look. If you have been following my blog, you would know that I literally live in my Xevana necklace--it goes with everything! Or perhaps I just wear it with everything? Embrace who you are and do as you please: That's the beauty of personal style!

I'm not sure why I'm drawn to juxtaposing a pretty outfit against a run-down place. Yet here I am once again exploring dark and desolate areas. I thought it would be interesting to switch it up and do a nighttime shoot. The darkness adds a cinematic touch, wouldn't you agree?

It's that time to reload on my caffeine. I hope you all are having a fantastic week! Thanks so much for stopping by!
