Lust List #2

Lust List #2
Tuesday, April 26, 2016
Read post


I can almost taste summer vacation. The only things standing between myself and freedom are my finals and the move-out date for my apartment. To distract myself from these stressful situations, I do what I do best: window shop. I have compiled a small list of things I hope to find as soon as I purge half my closet. (Most of the things I'm lusting after would be great to have for the adventures I hope to have this summer.) Until then, I'm just going to continue to complain about the heat as I walk from class to class.

Keep on reading to see my current lust list and tricks to make spring cleaning/moving out/finding something of value to sell to second-hand stores as effortless as possible.

Driving through the desert is pretty picturesque. Although the gigantic windmill farms are equal parts ugly and terrifying, everything else from the mountains to the dozens of palm trees are worthy of a few snaps on your phone. Instead of boring you with photos from the festival, I thought I'd show off my favorite outfit and my favorite spot from this weekend.

My Perfect Music Festival

I am currently en route to Coachella, so this marks the beginning of my "sorry I won't stop talking about this music festival and adding salt to your FOMO wounds" period. By the end of the weekend I'm sure all of you will have sworn off social media after seeing yet another photo of a girl eating a watermelon slice on the Polo Fields. My apologies.

Festival Season 2016

Festival Season 2016

Festival season is both the best and the worst time of the year. I love it because of the promise of new music, fashion inspiration, and quality time with some of my best friends. However, it also brings out the worst in people like: elitist music fans who critique the festival or the groups of Instagram models/photographers who claim they're free-spirited but shell out tons of cash so they can make it on a "Best Dressed" list. (Is it salty in here or is it just me?) 


All of that aside, I really enjoy it. I embrace the clichés of it all and have a gr8 time doin' it. I'm also the kind of girl who will take any opportunity to dress to the 9s. Music festivals are the best place to try different looks because no one's judging you. (Everyone's far too busy worrying about themselves.) 

This year will be my third year at Coachella (and I've already secured a ticket to Lollapalooza) and with it only a week away I wrote this post to get psyched. 

Keep on reading to see my spin on festival wear.

Trending Threads Vol. I

Trending Threads Vol. I
Tuesday, April 5, 2016
Read post

My blog title, “the trending thread” was meant to reflect current clothing fashion, but my inclination towards trends doesn’t stop there. I find myself immersed in everything on-trend, whether they’re new pieces I lust for from the feed of Vogue Runway or fulfilling my constant need to discover new (or simply new to me) music and films. The longevity of trends is both the best and worst thing about them: some trends fade while others latch on.

I couldn’t pass up using the ultimate pun…my own blog name. Welcome to a new segment on the blog, “trending threads.” Here I’ll be talking about a few things taking over my life, both fashion-related and not. I’m ditching the cliché “Monthly Favorites” format because 1. I’m no YouTube kid and 2. my favorite things do not change on a monthly rotation.

Keep on reading to see what stuck with me over the past few months what has faded since then. Let me know how you like this format by tweeting me at @torixcat or by leaving a comment below.
