what's in my purse + summa outfit

Wow, hi! It has been a quite a while. I've been doing extremely poorly with keeping up consistent blog-posting, and I'm frustrated with myself because of it because I know I like to write so I don't know why I've been so M.I.A recently. I don't want to write too much though because I've made an almost 10-minute video on WHAT'S IN MY PURSE. It sounds ridiculous and it's not something I would normally imagine myself doing, but hell, why not. I can be a YOUTUBE GIRL too, right?

Anyways, please excuse the weird jittery noises my camera makes in the majority of this video, it's just the lens focusing. And excuse my deep voice, I actually really hate it.

Whoooot yay to my first ever (serious blogging sort of) youtube video! I hope you all liked it and could hear through my anxious mumbling. I kind of want to make more videos, considering this one was surprisingly pretty fun, but I'm not sure what I'd do one on so if you have any suggestions, please please please let me know <3

Here's my outfit (on the same day this video was made) that is themed: "Favorite Summer Go-To's," for lack of a better category.

My obsession with lingerie has lingered on for quite a while now. I'm still trying to figure out exactly what draws me to it so much. See-through, lacy garments aren't a BIG THANG nowadays-- so I think it's simply the act of wearing what is socially SUPPOSED to be something worn only during private, intimate, vulnerable moments for a female in public that makes me love lingerie. 

Everything I'm wearing here is thrifted!

Gold bone earrings - Internets (Etsy)

Polka dot socks - Forever 21
Shoes - Buffalo Exchange

Here is a photo of the ever sick-ass Miles, as promised:

And check out my cousin, Joana! Here's a photo from her blog of her channeling Mulan:

I guess that's all for now! But before I go, I just wanted to mention that I've been spending a crazy amount of time lately on the internet doing these two things: 1. Reading random tumblr blogs on feminism/white feminism/racism/GLBTQ community/etc to try and educate myself from a relatable perspective on all of these topics. And 2. Watching beauty guru/fashion youtube videos.

For the first thing, I've only been reading a good two or three blogs and have been searching for something more, I guess, fresh, and inspired so if anyone has some favorite blogs out there tackling any of those topics, please suggest them to me!

And as for the second thing, even though I find myself hypnotized and compelled by all of these videos, I can't help but to feel like they get extremely redundant at some point and that something about making a youtube video for viewers forces some sort of routine in the way these youtubers talk/interact with the camera and it gets sort of creepy at some point.... I guess what I'm asking is, if anyone knows any fashion vloggers on youtube who just hypnotizes them in a way (where it doesn't eventually get creepy, idk) then suggest those to me too!

Okay, that's all, thanks.


  1. I've been watching grav3yardgirl's videos obsessively. Hypnotizing is exactly the right word for it! I don't know what it is about youtube hauls and makeup tutorials, but they're kind of soothing to me. At first I thought they were silly and made fun of them, but I guess there was something there that made we want to keep watching and now here I am.

    I also really like your outfit! lingerie forever.

    1. i just watched a few of her videos! she's so whimsical and down taaa earth i love it-- thank you thank you thank you!!

  2. Your layering is excellent and those shoes are too cool!! And your cousin looks exactly like the disney movie mulan in that photo :P I love clothes encounters on youtube for fashion videos!

    1. thanks! and doesn't she?! my cousin watches her youtube channel too, i'll check her out :)

  3. If you want a "makeup education," I highly recommend lisaeldridgedotcom, MissMavendotcom, NikkieTutorials and pixiwoo. KlairedelysArt mixes it up; think art and makeup put together. My sister and I both watch emilynoel83, and she's pretty amazing because she mostly uses drugstore makeup. Hands down my current favorite Youtube guru is CloudyApples; watch a video and you'll understand why.

  4. awawwaw you are such a sweetie, you're video is perfect. i love how you have swimming goggles in your purse ahhaha you're the best. i've always wanted to make videos, so you've definitely inspired me to maybe take a stab at it!

    1. aw yes please do it!! can't wait for it :)
