Leather, Houndstooth, and Carlos Andres Gomez

Last night I went to see a poetry reading of Carlos Andres Gomez, and I gotta say it was pretty amazing. If you have never heard of him you can check out his bio and work here. This was in partial celebration of Martin Luther King Jr since his death was on April 4 as well as a promotion of Carlos' new book. I will definitely be purchasing his book eventually, unfortunately he sold all his books the day before so there weren't any available at the event. Definitely check him out, and if you get the chance to see him live, I'd go for it. 


Coat: A.N.A. Lace Tank: LYS. Under-tank: JMS. Leggings: Fashion Bug. Shoes: Kmart.


This is at the college I did my undergraduate degree at, I thought it was so cute that they planted tulips in the school colors.


How awesome is this jacket? I got it at JC Penny  for about $20 and I am so in love with it.

    1. Thanks, these pants are so amazingly comfortable. It's nice because they are basically leggings, but dressier.
