I'm back.

Wow, so it has been how long since I've posted? Well by count way to long! Hey guys so I've finally decided to get back on here and rejoin the blogging world! If you followed my blog at anytime you would recall that it was my friend (Ana Arredondo) and I (Rafael Romo). Unfortunately since we graduated High school and we have both moved our separate ways but remain friend. I (Rafael) will now be blogging' solo. 

So a little a bit of where I am now. I no longer live in lodi anymore, thank god, and have moved this little city called Los Angeles, perhaps you may have heard of it? I live in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles and absolutely love it. I am going to school at FIDM, The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, pursing a degree Associate of Arts in Fashion Design. I couldn't be happier and enjoy every moment of it. Living in L.A. and going to a Fashion school has so many perks. For example, recently I was invited to attend the Lookbook Launch Party for Rebecca Minkoff's denim collection, that was absolutely fabulous. I was also able to attend Blood is the New Black Launch Party for the new clothing line at Space 15 twenty, which was just as fun! Now that im back here I'd like to show you all the incredible events I get to attend to, what I do in school, what I wear of course, and maybe be able to snap a picture of a celebrity here in L.A for you guys! 
This is a picture of my school for you guys to look at! I love it and its a place where I get inspired everyday!
These are some pictures from the Lookbook Launch Party for Rebecca Minkoff's denim collection. The clothes for men we're beyond cute, I loved the whole dapper vibe. They had a huge wall for us to be creative and at the end of the night it looked like a piece of art, I might say.
 These are the pictures for the Blood is the New Black Launch Party clothing line at Space 15 twenty. For those who don't know, Space 15 twenty is a pop up shop that host events and is connection with Urban Outfitters in Los Angeles. The top picture is some of their rad clothing and the bottom picture is of me and my roommates at their kissing booth! They had all kind of fun stuff like kissing booths, nail art, and fortune tellers!

So this is just a very little dose of my life since last time I posted! I hope you guys keep following and reading!

Pretty Little Liar.

So this outfit is on the feminine vintage side to me. We loved the color combo! The shirt has so much we love! It has a high neck ruffled which we never seen before and we love! There is pleating running down the middle that again we love. Big sleeves to be balanced out with the cuffs at the end. We paired it with this coral redish flower belt. We loved the colors together and the femininity the flower gave. The skirt is really a dress we layered everything on top of. We loved how the cream lace went with this and again kept the femininity.

We loved the way the shirt looked untucked and tucked. Which way do you like better? :D

A little bright.

I made this dress (Rafael Romo) to make it pop, and Ana wore it beautifully! I loved how I did a low V. I think it looks super sophisticated. I kept it clean up top to add all the draped ruffles at the bottom. I love the way the flowed and just laid on the body effortlessly moving as you move, kind of reminds me of seaweed in a beautiful way. I wouldn't recommend for all body types since it is a lot going on at the bottom, but Ana always wears it beautifully.

Its hard to keep a secret.

So this outfit is about the color combo and the structure of each piece. We loved the little cut out shape of this blazer up top and how it is sort of two layered? Its structured and a great pop of color. We also loved this pink pants obviously because of the color but also because of fabulous draping work on the sides of the hips. We paired it with a yellow belt that fit the color poping palette. We did a nude shoe to add the balance.
