Be Free!


Happy September! Can you guys believe it’s already September…I still think it’s March! Haha

Well September brings school back into my life. With so much more time invested in work, I will definitely have to stay focused on school to stay on track. I’m always to start a new school year with more knowledge.


Today was the second day of classes and I’m really to keep up some cute, yet easy looks since I have a full day of classes. I found this mustard colored skirt by Free People at my job a few weeks ago.


This type of draped skirt is really in trend and I’ve seen on it Instagram on bloggers and “Instagram famous” people. Is that really a thing? Yeah, I guess it is. Ugh.

I always have the problem¬† of having really cute bottoms, but I always lack in the tops to go with the look. I kept the look fairly simple with a white tank and white boyfriend sweater over it. I would’ve preferred if the cardigan wasn’t as long, but it’s all I had.

I added my favorite wedges to add more sensual effect to the look. How’d I do?


And hello to anyone from my speech class who is checking out the blog! ūüôā

Feeling Godly

So in the previous post, I shared my all white look with Niki. We did take solo shots and I wouldn’t be the narcissist I am if I didn’t post them.

My look was styled around my white skinny jeans. I can’t remember the last time I wore white jeans… I’m lying! I had a pair in middle school from that store from Gadzooks… does anyone remember that store? Okay… that was very off topic!

I was a tad bit “unprepared” and went to search for a top today of the shoot. I went to my local Forever21 and found these white mesh top. I loved it because it was see through without looking tasteless. I will definitely be wearing it through out the summer.

You know I love, love, love COLOR so I couldn’t let this look be head to toe white. I added my pop of color with my Prabal Gurung heels.



Since the heels have every color on them, I can accessorize this look any way I want to. I actually decided to minimize my accessories for this look to keep it clean and sleek.
This look was out of my normal style and I really loved it. What do you think of my look?

It’s nice to enjoy my days off styled how I like. I knew we would be heading out for lunch today and I wanted to keep my look spring chic. My mother owns this Alberto Mikali top at Nordstrom Rack awhile back. I knew I wanted to match my look around these new Sam Edelman gladiators.

My Alberto Makali top was a perfect match to the gladiators and my yellow shorts brought the entire look together.

When I originally picked out my look, I paired the top with white denim and was told that I looked like a Orange County Housewives. I had to improvise the look keep it to my age group. Lol.

rain rain go away…

Today was a rare day in desert rained!¬†Which, honestly, is my least¬†favorite weather. I hate being wet and the nasty clouds rain brings.¬†I also have the¬†“I don’t want to get my hair wet” mainframe. #blackgirlproblems ¬† DSC_0261

The rain messed up the shoot I had planned for the blog, but it did force me to actually relax on my full day off. I needed to run a few errands and since all my rain boots are in storage, I had to suffice for this rainy weather. I bought these new booties from the Nordstrom site, Haute Look earlier this week. I have been on the search for a pair of brown booties since Coachella and how nice….I found these a month later! And you won’t guess how much they were $22!

I like to multi task¬†during shoots… I was recording my sister ¬†on snapshot complain about having to stand in the rain. Boo Hoo.. sacrifice… sacrifice! Follow me on snapshot @trappednfashion

I caught this awesome shots of the foggy mountains behind our house. How random is that… fog in the desert? It looks great though.

got a bad b*tch, she’s a masterpiece…

when Rick Ross said that line, i’m pretty ¬†sure he was talking to me! actually i just thought that was a clever title next to the ART SIGN.¬†DSC_0171 DSC_0148

This awesome ART sign is in front of the Art building at College of the Desert. The college I currently attend! The art building is one of my favorite structures, because it is so sleek and simple. as I was parking for class, I just knew I had to snap a picture there today.

the spring semester is almost over…one more week! I have finals on Tuesday and i’m so happy! this semester I took Intro to Mass Media, Psychology, & History of Film Music. Today I presented my final project for Mass Media, which was on How Social Media changed the Fashion Industry… yes, everything is fashion related! it went very well and if I can i’ll put my power point up on the blog. my presentation turned into a whole discussion on the trapped fashionista… so hey classmates! ūüôā DSC_0199 DSC_0151 DSC_0196 DSC_0189 DSC_0190

the sunglasses I bought on a recently bought on a recent trip to the Montclaire Nordstrom store. It was the last pair and I am completely obsessed with them. I think I have been wearing them at least twice a week. (say hey to my sister brandy’s reflection)

Uptown Funk!

‘Tis the season for holiday parties! I have another holiday party to attend tonight and this beautiful sequin dress from Nordstrom Rack might have to be the winner. We are going to a casino, so I don’t want to overdress, but I can’t resist wearing this! What do you think?

FullSizeRender-1Should I be #teamoverdressed or #teamunderdressed???


When life gives you lemons…

Shhh…it’s a secret!
How elegant in this house…and me!

..sneak in front of your neighbors house to take your pictures. There is a fantastic home in my neighborhood with this beautiful grass arch that i always drive by and lust after. I didn’t want to walk all the way so I took my shots outside their main gate.¬† DSC_0077My look for today was inspired by the lemon-y goodness of Kate Spade. I’ve had my lemon printed keds for a few months, but recently acquired the lemon charm necklace and the “when life gives you lemons” pouch. With the shades of yellow and green, I thought the green arch was the perfect background!
