Where have you been?

Hello Loves, 

It has been over a year since I even had a chance to post anything on my blog. My creativity has been glowing everyday, but my fingers could not seem to type. What happened to me you may ask. Well life and school. Last year I finished up my Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering at Howard University, while working as an intern and involved in too many activities. I wanted to post so many times, but never had the motivation. School overwhelmed me and drained me out to the point I was in the hospital twice. Good news is I still finished in May. Over the summer I decided to take a break from engineering and I worked part time at Abercrombie & Fitch and Urban Outfitters. My view on fashion and seeing the retail life expanded as well as my closet lol. I did sell and donate a lot of clothes as well. Still trying not to tear up. Now I have relocated from the East Coast and am officially living in the Bay and am attending grad school at UC-Berkeley to study Environmental Engineering. School is once again difficult, and on a totally different level then expected. However, I will never stop expressing myself through my style no matter how things get. I hope that I can keep up my blog, doing at least one post a week. I have tons of outfits and selfies to post so hopefully they inspire you. Welcome to my page. Comment and follow I will follow back :) 

Love, 

Bria O.C.

Out of the Box

 Hello Loves,

For so long I was afraid to try something different with my style. I was afraid to step out of the box and show people how I love fashion and I love creating pieces in my head. There are so many of us out there who continue to buy new pieces for our wardrobe, but then stare at them for months until we can finally get the guts to wear them. This was my first try. These pictures were taken in June and it took me forever to finally post them, but now that I have I feel great. I took this outfit from so many of my youtube inspirations including:

So take your pieces out of your closet and create a masterpiece. Hopefully I will have more to come :) 







Crop Top: New Look/ Shorts: American Apparel / Bag: Zara / Hat: Cotton On/ Shoes: F&F / Necklace: Spain / Sunglasses: Firmo

Tips: For people who want to wear crop tops, but may not want to show too much skin put them with a pair of high top trouser shorts. Wear a piece of statement jewelry. I have on my choker necklace, and small earrings to balance them off. Since it was a sunny day I wore my amazing hat to keep the sun out of my face, plus my Retro Shades I won in a giveaway. 

Thanks for reading, hope I gave some good tips. Please comment and follow and I will do the same :)

Love,

Maxi Skirt: Day to Night

Hello Loves, 

I hope all has been well. Where have I been you may ask? Well in the past two weeks I finished finals in London, now I'm back home in America and I literally just started summer classes last week. I don't think I am jet-lagged, but boy am I exhausted. It's tough trying to balance 2 summer classes, research, and just trying to live life. Hopefully by next week I will get back into the swing of things, and catch myself up to where I need to be. So the other day I was thinking about how I don't really have any maxi skirts, I think I have one, but when I wore it I really didn't dress it up. So it hit me to just go on Polyvore and see how I can turn a maxi from day to night. Hope you love the little collage :) 



Maxi Skirt: Day to Night



Knit top, $23 / F.A.V tall shirt, $30 / Ted Baker pleated maxi skirt / Nude wedge / Topshop shoes / Chanel vintage handbag, $4,740 / Fat Face leather shoulder bag, $69 / GUESS straw hat

Day outfit:  Makes me think of a more beachy type. It's for if you are just walking close to the water, and you are not planning on getting wet. It is always breezy by the water so the long sleeves keep you arms warm. Wear Sandals to be comfortable, and the hat to block the sun from your face. 

Night Outfit: This can be worn if you are going out to dinner or a night with the girls. The bandeau shirt shoes of your arms and adds a little more appeal. The wedges give you height, but also takes your outfit from a casual to a more dressy. 


Hope you enjoyed my post, please comment and follow :)

Sunday's in London - OOTD


Hello Loves, 

Here are some OOTD picks from a couple of weeks ago. I was crazy for some of the trends I saw in London and of course I had to follow. I finally wore my leather armed motor jacket and my lovely creepers. I spent my day roaming through the market, spending money on delicious food and admiring the styling work of others. Enjoy :)
