Lobster Tail

Hat and Tank: Urban Outfitters, High-low/Fishtail Skirt: Akira, Boots &  Alligator Skin Bag: Thrift Store: Watch: Nixon, Sunglasses: Chloe

Will last week was my first week of classes and the start of my last semester, YEAH!!!!!!!!! 

Anyway,  lately I have been obsess with fishtail hems, or what some might call High-low hems.  I've been trying to buy everything I can afford with a fishtail hem and so far I collected 3 items. This skirt been one of them. If your asking why didn't I wear it the wayI did? Its because if I wore it the regular way my lady parts would probably show and I can't be having that. Next week I'm headed to Atlanta for their Fashion Night Out and to support my friend Lesly who was selected to representing SCAD at one of the events. The following weekend I will be in NYC for a friends wedding and it should be great to catch up with all my lovely friends. The best part about the upcoming weeks will be that I will be getting a new camera. Which means better photos and more posts. So look forward to the new look for Remnants.  

If anyone knows of any cool places that I should hit up in NYC please let me know.

Peace & Love..........LivvyV

Look of the Day

Meet this lovely lady while I was selling clothes at Funky Monkey. I'm totally loving her turban and brouges and the red bag pops against the dress. I wanted to ask her name but was in a little bit of a rush. So who every you are you definitely have style.

Peace & Love.....LivvyV

On Repeat

Johnny Polygon: The Riot Song

This song has been on repeat on my Itunes, Iphone, my radio, my head lol. I just love this song. 

Days Lost

Unused Photos

Its been a while since I've updated my blog.  Mostly because Theo needed to be fix ( Theo is my Mac) lol. And not having the options of connecting to the interweb has done me good.  Plus, its been too hot to actually give a hell about what you wear in New Orleans so I didn't feel like taking pictures or doing anything else but trying to stay cool. Sad, I know.

Anyway, back to the good of lacking a computer did me.  Without my computer I started going through my things to find what I wanted to sell for my garage sell. And while I was cleaning and separating my wants from my sell, I found my old journal. You every rediscover something that instantly made you smile?  My journal is it.  Looking through it, seeing the words and the drawing that I was doing a few years ago made me wonder if growing up means that sometimes we not only gain certain knowledge but we lose it too. Seeing the poems that I wrote about love, insecurity, hurt, pain, about my life made me remember that not too long ago I was not the confident girl that I'am today. Looking at the notes and pictures of things I would like to do, know, or go made me remember that I have not achieved all my goals yet, and made me happy for the new ones I set for myself.  It made me notice that I sometimes get so caught up in the world of the internet: facebook, twitter, tumblr, ichat, and everything else that I forget what it feels like to just sit and be.  In the days without my computer I rediscover music I love, my love for writing, my love for reading about ancient Eastern religion, cutting out pics in old magazines,  I discover my love for just being.

Peace & Love......LivvyV

July's Purchases.

Sunglasses: Chloe, Bag: Coach Vintage Seafoam green leather bag, Crop Top: Urban Outfitters, Shoes: DV by Dolce Vita, Jacket: Vintage,  Fragrance: Gucci Flora Pink Edition.

Hey everyone. I've been on a little hiatus mostly because it just to damn hot to do anything and care about what I wear. Sometimes I felt like not wearing anything. But that wouldn't be polite HAHA.  Anyway these are a few things that I pick up last month and I love every one of these items. The Chloe glasses I've been wearing non-stop they are so huge and cool. Every time I have them on people do a double. Or maybe thats just in my mind.  The coach bag I found on Ebay for  a steal, as well as the jacket. The DV by Dolce Vita boots are killer and quite comfortable. I will be rocking these piece a lot over the fall and winter season. Especially the boots and the jacket.  Well I'm off to work now which it seems thats all I do. I work 30 + hours this week and next week too.
On another note this Saturday during White Linen Night I'll be attending an art show that a friend part together for the event, so look out for that post. Also I'll be taking a break from my busy schedule to chill with my BF
Lesly  when she comes into town.

Peace & Love.......LivvyV
