Uh-oh! Tonight's outfit is a repeat offender, and I'm feeling absolutely shameless about it! First off, my first corset type top (from the lovely Tobi) quickly ascended to one of the top spots in my closet after my initial disappointment with realizing it was a crop top. But no matter! This beauty can be paired with so many of my cute high-waisted items and it even looks gorgeous under my see-through Zara dress.

I wore this look when I went to Vegas with my roommates for spring break, but didn't get a chance to take photos that time around. Luckily, the second time I wore this in Los Angeles (doesn't count as a repeat if you're wearing it in a different city with different people!) and my man was ready to capture it as we explored the Arts District! 

Fun fact: Part of the mural behind me was a carton of milk holding two milk-filled breasts! Four for you, LA! You go, LA!

Thank you so much for stopping by, pretty people! I'll see you next time!

Outfit: LBD + Sparkles.

Well, folks, here you have it. Probably the most experimental photography you will ever see on Fashamorphosis, courtesy of my sweet boyfriend. These photos were taken out in Los Angeles, upon our return from our 3 year (!!!) anniversary dinner celebration- a wonderful feast where we stuffed our faces with stuff like grilled octopus. I know, we fancy. 

This outfit is such a classic old-school Ada look- a mix of stuff from the thrift store, garage sales, my mom's closet (#sorrynotsorry) and a bit of Romanian flair. I think the item worth highlighting here is this beautiful body-skimming little black dress. Who would've known the perfect LBD is hiding in none other than the local thrift store? Of course, I've got my momma to thank for that one, although there's no surprise there. 

I've got a grand total of 7 days to go in terms of this semester (the weekend doesn't count) and I couldn't be happier to get it over with. 4 finals. 3 group projects. 26 hours of work. I can do this. I WILL do this. But don't worry friends, I won't forget you here on the blog, because this little corner of heaven the internet is the only thing keeping me sane right now.

Good luck with the last few weeks of school, everybody! You've got this!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Good evening, everyone!

Doing my shopping at the mall during my time in school has taken its toll on me. It's been such a long time since I was able to fall in love with an item- an item that I can't find on every other person. Well, take it back to spring break about a month ago and my wish was Plato's Closet's command. 

This gem of a top beckoned me from the moment I spotted it across the room. My mom really wasn't digging it (and many others may not as well), but it reminded me of the good ol' days when the thrift stores and garage sales were my second home and I wasn't afraid to get loud with my looks and take everything by trial and error. 

Recently I've had multiple opportunities like this- just taking a step back from the mall (nothing against my bae, Charlotte Russe- sometimes a girl just needs something different) and losing myself in the beauty of thrifted items. And that feeling, my friends, is the absolute best! 

You may not consider this look a hit. Actually, I'm not even sure if I love it or hate it. But sometimes, being a hot mess and embracing every second of it is the best thing you can do for yourself and your personal style journey!

Have a great evening!

Friends! Romans! Countrymen! 

Marvelous news! I am alive and sane (more or less) and still very much enjoy plastering my face and outfits on the interwebz! It's been a long few weeks without outfit documentation, but I'm coming back strong.

And by strong I mean I'm wearing the outfit I very unfortunately wore when my boss decided to send me to a lecture filled with members of the 50+ crowd (and to my delight, the president of the university) so I could snap some pictures for our social media.

While I'm one to usually stand by my fashion choices (and I feel my look so much that I'd probably crop my kid out of the picture and post it on social media), even I have to admit that it was far from being a good moment for me. My favorite part was having to leave in the middle of the lecture and hustle to class- an extra 30 seconds of all eyes on me- great stuff!

Going past that- it's good to be back, and I'm still absolutely in love with this outfit- no matter what my higher-up friends in the university administration care to think.

You do you, college students!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Style: February/March Haul.


Hello, everyone!

It's been a while, but I finally caught my breath and was able to put together a new post. School's reaching its peak for the semester, so doing things outside of that and work has been a bit difficult. While I haven't been able to shoot any outfit posts lately, I wanted to share with you guys my latest haul (everything was purchased in a 2-month span).

Hauls are somewhat of a mixed feeling initiator, as some find them inspiring and others find them annoying. I'm in between- mostly depending on the frequency of them. 

For the most part, I've been trying to steer clear of the mall lately, so Sole Society, Sosie and Tobi are three of my newest discoveries which I highly recommend. Also, can't miss an opportunity to bring up my little Plato's Closet plug! I mean, a brand new J.Crew skirt (with the tags on) for under $15. Amazing stuff, I tell 'ya!
