style profile: ariele guieb

"I have a little accent. Many people describe it as a very 'soulful' accent. I can't really control it, it's funny. It decides to let itself out depending on who I'm talking to or what I'm talking about. I'd really like to hear myself in the 3rd person persepctive, but until then I stay in a slight denial that I have this other side to me."

do i wanna know?

I'm on this sort of Arctic Monkeys high right now because I'm seeing them in August!! My concert habit got started with IM5 last August and I don't think this addiction is going anywhere anytime soon. The money I made by taking others' Sadie's pictures went straight to concert tickets (not sorry). Alex Turner, I'm coming for you ((;

Forever 21 mesh crop top and sandals // H&M pleather pinafore

This outfit is totally inspired by "Do I Wanna Know?". I figured sheer mesh, pleather, and an all-over black outfit is the perfect way to emulate the rocker babe (or dude) that comes to mind when you listen to the song. (I'm not an expert in music genres so please don't kill me if I'm getting this all wrong) The only thing this outfit needs is some killer sky-high cage stilettos to really complete the look. Which I would totally get if I didn't just break the bank to buy those tickets.

Love always, A.

the cool bus

My hair never really seems to get over the whole 'baby hair' phase. I'm trying to grow my hair down to at least the waist before the end of senior year so I've been settling with whatever whacky shape my hair decides to take on instead of taming it with heat and an assortment of hair products. Honestly, this was one of my better hair days so a photoshoot in a random school bus parking lot was kind of necessary.

I decided recently to (finally) clean out  my closet and try to fix my hoarding habits by getting rid of stuff I haven't worn in ages. While cleaning, I found this skirt and was about to donate it but Kritika convinced me to keep it and I'm glad I did actually. This is the first time I've worn it since I bought it (which was Black Friday of 2012 oops) and I'm really surprised I haven't worn it more. You'll probably end up seeing it so much on the blog that you'll get sick of it. Oh well.

Love always, A.
