I'm close to 30, can I wear a Crop Top?- short answer, F*** yes!

Araceli V.

Hey bbs!

I hit up Ross just to see what kind of deals they had and came across this super cute crop top. Then I got a feeling in my gut, like should I get it or nah. My main issue was that I'm fast approaching 30 and thought to myself, can I wear a crop top at 29? Is that appropriate for my age?

This just made me sad/mad that I was having this legitimate convo with myself. I'm not sure how many of you are ever out shopping and think these thoughts but I'm here to tell you, wear the fucking crop top/mini dress/whatever your feeling at the moment. 

Act your age< wtf does that even mean?!

I used to feel like people should act their age in how they act, carry themselves but as I've gotten older and now live a life as a struggling entrepreneur, I realized life is way to short to stay in a job you hate, not wear that cute crop to the grocery store.

Gucci Gang Gucci Gang, but not really. Thrifted Gucci Inspired look

Araceli V.

Hey there!!

How is everyone's January going? Mine's been pretty busy but pretty awesome if you ask me. 

Today I'm serving you with a designer inspired thrifted look. Gucci is on fire right now and I've been seeing bloggers with all their Gucci merch. And I'm digging it. Since I don't have Gucci money, I've been watching all the fun happening, admiring and whispering "yassss" at every post. 

I was thrifting per usual and came across this gorgeousssssss turtle neck that was screaming Gucci vibes and I snatched it up quick! 


I paired the turtle neck with my new (to my closet) 501 Levi's featured in this thrift haul and my comfy suede tan Pumas for a day at the Treasure Fest on Treasure Island, Ca.
