Spiked Headband: Urban Outfitters, $19
Floral Shirt: c/o Romwe
High-waisted pants: H&M
Shoes: Vintage

Today, I finally got to wear two of my most favorite additions to my closet: my spiked headband and my floral print shirt from Romwe! I love moody, picturesque prints and when the Zara floral shirt came out, I wasn't quick enough to catch on and they sold out. But when I found one just like it at Romwe a few months later, it just goes to show that good things come for those who wait (or are forced to wait) ;) You can't see from the photos but the buttons on the shirt are mother of pearl, another thing I am obsessed with! It's a small reference to the current aquatic trend of the moment as well. If you ever fall in a love with a designer print but can't afford it or it's sold out, just stalk Romwe.com and there's a good chance you will find a spin-off of it on there! :)

The spiked headband is something I picked up on the LA trip in March from Urban Outfitters! I'm really liking the whole spikes and headpieces or hats combination right now. The headband kind of reminds me of the Statue of Liberty! It was $19 but I always find that spikes are a lot more expensive in comparison to studs so if you like this headband, you might as well just buy the real thing instead of making your own unless you already have spikes lying around.The spikes are screwed into the headband so you don't have to worry about them falling off either. This headband also comes in pink with silver spikes, and black with silver spikes.

I also got to go to the de Young museum to see the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit with my Fashion class! It was an incredible experience; very inspiring and thought-invoking. It's really hard to imagine how much work gets put into these haute couture garments until you see them in person for yourself; it was not uncommon to find garments that required over 300+ hours of work! I don't want to spoil anything else about the exhibit but the bottom line was that it was very engaging, and innovative with how they went about executing that. You are also allowed to take photos (no flash though) so I'm really regretting leaving my DSLR at home now too. All in all, if you have a chance to go to the de Young museum before August 19, you shouldn't pass it up!

PS: Rachel Schwartzmann from The Style Line recently did a style interview on me at her Tumblr here! Her Tumblr blog as well as her personal blog, le style child, has a lot of solid and fresh content so if you have a minute to stop by, you should follow her :) Stay tuned for another interview she did on me that focuses on my design work!
