The Messy Project Reveal


I cannot tell you how excited I am to be apart of this month's Messy Project! I signed up months ago in hopes that one day I would get an email saying it would be my chance! And what better month than August!

If you've been paying any attention to my constant rambling then you are well aware that I am in no way girly or fashion forward at all. I have no idea how to style myself or even act like a proper girl. True story. I've been making several attempts to get into hair, makeup, and all that shit in hopes that it will one day rub off on me and I'll magically be transformed into a smokin hot woman in the coolest outfits, aka Katy Perry. 

When I stumbled upon Kelly's blog I instantly fell in love. She was making a statement both to herself, women, and fashion in general; bringing a quirky and unique twist to how she styles herself and looks at an outfit. My kinda girl. I knew I just HAD to be apart of her vision, and that it would help me with my journey to awesomeness. Hopefully I succeeded in some small way.

The item I received was:
A black&white striped maxi

When I opened my package I'd be lying to you if I said I wasn't a little disappointed. Not in Kelly's choice, but the fact that I was looking forward to breaking out of my comfort zone with something I wouldn't normally buy for myself. I would buy this for myself. In fact, I actually have three dresses that look like this. So at first I was pretty bummed. However, it was still a challenge to think out of the box. My first instinct was to pair this with my burgundy leather jacket and steel grey buckle boots.

 I decided to turn the dress into a low-waisted skirt and go for a
 relaxed "beach babe" vibe. 

Paired with:
Loose waves// Hair
Woven crop-top// Wet Seal
Bead bracelets// Icing
Butterfly ring// Claire's
Snake ring// Claire's
Neon bracelets// Gift

All of these pictures prove that J should never be a photographer and I should not look into modeling as a career. My failed attempt in curling my hair didn't surprise me at all. It also didn't bother me considering I wasn't at a real beach but my neighborhood's tiny pond. We'll pretend, though. I went barefoot with minimal makeup to keep with the natural look. So how did I do?

Make sure to check out the others!
