  • Leather & Leopard

    What’s leather, leopard and striped all over? Me – this past weekend!

    And that’s all the witty banter I have for you (for now).

    The jacket is literally an old man’s vintage bomber jacket I got a thrift shop (cause shit it was 99 cents!). The striped blouse is from Forever21 (plus size here), pants are my favorite skinnies from GAP. My booties are c/o Aldo and have become a fall/winter staple for me. The faux-ostrich bag is a wonderful item that Rehka of Outrage Fashion sent over to me – and I’m completely in love with it! The scarf is an old favorite I picked up in London years ago, and the hair is all mine. That’s right ladies – real Natasha hair.

  • Seattle Show Fit

    Most people who live in Seattle are frequent attendees of live shows – rock bands, underground rap, indie groups, even open mic nights with unknowns. This short post is the typical outfit I usually wear to shows, the particular event was in Capitol Hill.

    The Outfit: J.Crew jean jacket (Summer 2012, similar here), J. Crew necklace (similar here), gifted cross-body purse, Forever21 top, H&M booties (but I like these and these).

  • 12 Lessons from 2012

    Another year has gone by. I’ve now been blogging for over 2 years, and while I haven’t had time to post every other day as I’d like to, my posts this year were some of my personal best.

    As every year passes, and we arrive at New Years Eve, everyone thinks about the last 365 days of their lives and how each one has changed them. We also think about the next 365 days, and refresh our passions and drive for goals in the upcoming year.

    For me, 2012 has been a year of lessons. A year full of experiences, some which ended the way I was hoping, and others ending in ways I couldn’t have ever imagined (both good and bad). However when I look back on every decision I made, everything I consciously participated in, I regret nothing. So to close out 2012, I’d like to share 12 lessons I learned this year – things I learned by making mistakes, taking risks and putting myself out there.

    12 Lessons Learned in 2012

    1. Life is about nothing but relationships. Your relationships with other people, and especially your relationships with yourself. And not about shoes or clothes or cars. 
    2. Reading books can actually change your perception on life. You can leave your own mind and travel through someone else’s thoughts page by page – and your view on life and what matters can be altered by just a few amazing books.
    3. You are lucky to have even one good, old friend. So many people don’t even have this. A family member that you actually chose. Appreciate this/these people.
    4. You cannot rely on anyone else to make you happy. You may think you can, but eventually you’ll realize that the only person who can make you happy is you. 
    5. Sometimes a night out drinking too much with good friends and dancing like an idiot the the cure-all. You can make better decisions tomorrow. 
    6. You can’t solve all your problems at the same time. You have to tackle them one at a time.
    7. Sometimes things happen with no explanation at all, and you have to let it go. This has been my hardest lesson yet. 
    8. Don’t stress about things you can’t control. This is much easier said than done.
    9. People will disappoint you. It’s part of life (and dating, and friendships). Know that this will happen for the rest of your life. And people will also surprise you, in a good way, sometimes.
    10. Forgive your parents. And your best friends.
    11. Some of my worst decisions have been my most memorable moments. Bad decisions make good stories. 
    12. Happiness is actually about little moments, not big ones. You’d think that a huge anticipated moment would affect your satisfaction with life, however it’s the sum of little daily moments that actually do.

    And THANK YOU.
