Bachelorette Party Fashion

Dress: Guess | Heels: Zara | Accessories: Watch, Fossil; Ring, Forever21 | Make up: Naked3

My friend is getting married in October so we decided to have her bachelorette party this weekend, especially since so much is happening the next couple of months, with her graduation, moving, new job, etc. We decided to surprise her and get dinner at Drago Centro, a really high scale Italian restaurant in downtown LA, and then we moved the party to drinks at Silo Vodka Bar. It was a great night! We went into their Freezer and tried different types of vodka! Their "freezer" was actually a cold room, haha, we use a cold room for our experiments in lab and it was kind of cool seeing it storing vodka. Although that means its a cold room storing ethanol, and is a fire hazard, according to EH&S. 

I wore a mint green cut out dress from Guess, that I bought a few weeks ago with a friend. I fell in love with it with no occasion to wear it, and this seemed like the perfect time! I dressed it up with some nude heels from Zara, and some silver jewelry (Watch, Fossil and ring, Forever21). I also used my Naked3 palette for my eye makeup, although these pics don't do it justice!
What do you think of the outfit? 
Have you been to bachelorette parties before? What did you wear/would you wear?

Kayaking at the Marina!

This afternoon, it was beautiful and I went kayaking in Marina del Rey with the boyfriend. I took my new camera out for a spin afterwards and I got some awesome shots! I am wearing a tube dress I got from another vendor at UCLA Bruin Plaza for $20, there's no brand. Perfect summer dress and cover up for the beach! I am wearing my Victoria's Secret swim suit from last year/season. 
What are you doing to enjoy the nice weather this weekend??

Summer Brunch in LA

May in LA means summer. Quite literally. While today wasn't that hot, we are expecting a heat wave this week (so I can't enjoy it while I'll be busy in lab.... great timing mother nature) in the 90s-100s. I went to brunch with some friends and I decided to wear this cute gold trimmed sun dress I bought from a vendor at UCLA. It was handmade, so theres no brand, but its just so cute! I'm in love with the flower print! and the gold accents, too cute. I matched it with gold bangles/bracelets and my nude Jessica Simpson pumps (my favorites, they are so comfortable to walk in!).
How is the weather like where you live? What would you wear to brunch?

Meet my new little friend! Nikon!

via Instagram May 10, 2014 at 04:14PM

So I have been looking for cameras for a while, and I figured I would get some good use out of it, for this blog and for my own photography. I tried out my friend's Canon DSLR when I was in San Diego and I fell in love. I love being able to have full control of the shooting -- I use the camera more in manual than using any of the preset programs! SO EXCITED! Can't wait to shoot some HD 1080p videos for here, and brand new higher quality outfit photos!! Get ready PhD Fashionista readers! It's about to get good! :D

#MayIHandstand Challenge

So I decided for May I was going to try a Handstand Challenge, as I have been following several Yoga Accounts on Instagram and it really is amazing the core strength involved! I started trying to do a handstand on April 20, and Here is my 10 day progress -- At first I couldn't even get up to the wall -- I was too scared! and now I can get up on the wall, next is trying to balance without the wall! I am doing this 30 day challenge that @Beachyogagirl is hosting, and I'm super excited to see how the next 30 days will go if I can progress so much in just 10 days!
Check out the video on my Instagram! give it a like and join in on the challenge if you want! :)
