Today's Look: has multiple statement pieces, from the velvet-tiger sweatshirt, spiked backpack, white Dr. Martens, to the "Fearless" charm bracelet. Today's outfit is special, because my brother, who is a professional photographer and videographer, is in town visiting. He was the photographer of today's photo-shoot. To start the look off, I chose my light gray, embellished sweatshirt and white-washed, charcoal skinny jeans. Next, I chose my white leather boots, spiked backpack, and white/black, charm bracelet. Since the outfit is edgy, I wore my hair in loose curls to soften the look. Finishing off the outfit, I wore three rings, black stud earrings, and cat-eye sunglasses.

Fashion Tip: If you're in the United States and considering buying Dr. Martens, it's somewhat of an ordeal. Not only is it difficult to decide what color to pick, but it is also difficult to figure out what size to buy. Dr. Martens come in so many different shapes, colors, and patterns, and only are sold in U.K. whole sizes. Even though so many funky option are out there, when buying Dr. Martens, I recommend going with a solid color in the classic cut. I'd say red and black are the two most popular colors of the brand. Now, with which shoe size to buy, it can be tricky. I researched the comparisons of U.K. sizes to U.S. and came to the conclusion that the U.K. sizes are one below the U.S. sizes. Therefore meaning, a U.K. 7 is equal to a U.S. 8. I am a 6-6.5 so I bought a U.K. 5 and it fits great. Even if you order your boots online, I definitely recommend going into a local store to try on a pair, making sure you like the fit.
