My "First Love" Dress

Are you guys ready?!

My Dress is heeeerreee and I couldn't help but share it to you guys as soon as they gave me a go! When I heard Dahlia Wolf (site here) wanted to work with me, the feelings were a mix of confusion, awe, and excitement. I didn't know what to expect at first and what they wanted to use from my inspirations that I gave them, but the results are in the photos haha

Sooo, what do you guys think?
The somewhat mesh/see-through peeks here and there adds just enough of skin for any kind of occasion. It isn't too much nor is it too little, plus the length isn't so short that you'd have to feel uncomfortable or worried haha (I honestly feel so burdensome worrying about the length of a skirt that i'd need to pull it down or adjust it every second or two).
I decided to name it my "First Love" since not only is it my first dress that I help to inspire, but it also resembles my first love to God, and my first real love with Josiakim.
It's always more than a blessing to know I've got so much love from my family, church, friends, other half and all from my readers. I'll keep thanking you guys, so yes don't get tired of me thanking you guys! hehe 

With so much love from me to you,

Who Said Baggy was Bad?

I've always been a fan of androgynous styles, and I can honestly say woman can feel sexy in them too if they tried haha I had to work my way around these heels and sure enough I succeeded in making it the focal point of this outfit. These little babies from Zara hasn't seen much sunlight, since my efforts in wearing heels these past couple of weeks were a no go for me - only because I've been so busy running around Nordstrom in my H&M snakeskin sneakers that have been slowly wearing out...maybe I should buy myself another of the same pair..hmm... But anyways, so here's to masculinity in it's finest mix of femininity. How would you guys wear your baggy jeans?

 Much Love,
Heliely xo

Hey everyone!

I must completely apologize for being gone for such a long period of time, but thanks so much to those who have recently followed me and those who still are :) You guys are beyond awesome! But, I will give you guys a sneak preview to my recent shoot for my dress that I helped "inspire" for Dahlia Wolf (check out their site here). I really wanted to do something different since it was my first dress that was made for me, so I hope you guys will support and end up buying it? Maybe? Or just spread the word!

But anyways, it's a sneak peak so you wont be able to see the whole dress just yet!

Crops + Prints

Hello Everyone!
Are you guys enjoying your break?
I was able to snap a shot of what I wore today and so here it is! haha
That skirt belongs to my mom, buuuut naturally I like to scope my mom's closet once in a while and add a little twist of my own taste into one of her pieces hehe
A good combo? haha hope you guys liked the pictures - my little sister Elizabeth (a.k.a Evee) took these shots and she's only 11! Amazing right? Right?!
