Quilted Orange

Posted on by Dez Offril


These past few weeks have been pretty hectic! I've been neglecting my blog because of it and I feel so behind! My boyfriend recently moved in so we've been going back and forth grabbing shit (we did this without ANY moving boxes because he is so unorganized). OH AND CAN I JUST SAY, FUCK IKEA. Fuck Ikea to god damn hell! ALRIGHT, I like our furniture for the time being but FIRST OFF, their employees are fucking clueless. We went to this guy for help and showed him EXACTLY what we wanted. Ended up giving us the wrong shit. Fucking asshole. Punch that guy in the face if I could! SECOND, their bedroom models DO NOT include ALL items you need. We fucking went back and forth to Ikea cause shit wasn't included with the packages that we were not aware of. All I know is, I took a fat shit in their bathroom and that smell lingered there for quite sometime. YOU'RE WELCOME IKEA. 

BUT BACK TO THIS OUTFIT. This pencil skirt is also worn here as a tub top. I mean, why the fuck not use the clothes you have for different purposes right? I actually saw a picture from a J.Crew fashion show thingy. They paired olive with orange and this is just my interpretation of it. Wish I had a pic to show you guys but Im too lazy to look for it. Enjoy!

Yeah I've been pretty fucking lazy lately to blog hahaha. I still have tons of pictures I need to edit and shit. Ugh! Going back to work after taking a few days off is always the hardest but FUCKKKKKK. Can being asleep all day be a full time job? 

Trying REALLY hard not to buy any more new clothes. The bottom is actually part of a dress my auntie gave me a few years ago. The dress itself seemed to fancy and I could never find an appropriate time to wear it. However with the added sweater, it brings the dress down to a more casual level making it easier to wear. Let me know what you guys think!

QUESTIONS FROM MADDIE:

1. What's the story behind your blog name?
-I am a HUGE TV show buff. One of my favorite shows of all time is Nickelodeons "Avatar : The Last Airbender". If you're not familiar with the show, certain people have the ability to manipulate the elements of the earth and they are called Benders. Hence, The Style Bender. PRETTY AWESOME, #AMIRIGHT?

2. Where are your favorite places to shop?
-Off the bat, ASOS, Urban Outfitters and Ambiance SF. These places constantly have sales and are reasonably priced. I do enjoy J Crew, Banana Republic and most recently Top Shop. 

3. If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
-If I could visit anywhere in the world….great question. My goal in life is to simply relax haha so I would say Hawaii or somewhere tropical. As long as I'm relaxing I don't really care where I am. Just no bugs please. 

4. What is your "go-to" outfit?
-Oh jeez , good question. Lately since I've been in and out of the airport I've reached out to my boyfriend jeans or these plaid leggings from top shop paired with a long cardigan and sneakers. Its comfortable, cozy but still appropriate without looking like a bum. 

5. What book(s) are you currently reading?
-Hahaha does BuzzFeed count as a book? Currently no books but I'm starting to think I should get into some. 

6. Who is your favorite fashion icon?
-I have TONS but my first and foremost would definitely be Solange Knowles. She's always so bold and creative, its truly inspiring. 

7. Coffee or Tea?
-Tea. Coffee makes me shit really bad hahaha 

8. What are your plans for Summer?
-Oh summer. I wish I still had summer vacation and didn't have to work! But i do have a few trips lined up that I'm excited for; going to Las Vegas for my sisters wedding and an annual trip to Tahoe with my friends (woohoo!) 

9. What beauty product do you splurge the most on?
-I definitely splurge on my skincare products. For most of my life I never used a cleanser and used body lotion for my face. After being told I should start washing my face I turned to Neutrogena which FUCKED UP my fave PRETTYYYY bad. I found Mary Kay and am a devoted subscriber. I don't trust any other product to put on my face. 

10. What is the last concert you've been to?
-Michael Buble!!! It was so much fun and EPIC. When he sang Cry Me a River…I could have just died right there; it was amazing. 

11. What do you look for in a blog?
-Hmm I guess it depends on the type of blog. If its fashion, nothing really specific, just an easy, user friendly layout.
