Out of Sight, Out of Mind






We all have that one favorite piece of clothing that we let take over almost all of our outfits. For me it has to be my mom jeans and for Christina its oversized flannels... But it doesn’t always have to be that way. Hide and put away the clothes that you always run to in the very back of your closet or at the bottom of your clothes drawer. This way you’ll be forced to wear the clothes that you abandoned and show off the old but new stuff. Then after two months you can switch and rotate your clothes so you’ll get a chance to wear everything in your closet.

Christal is wearing a 1.) Jean button up, 2.)Riding pants, 3.) Black cami top, 4.) Kufi hat, & 5.) sandals.
Christina is wearing a 1.) Brown blazer, 2.) Jeans from GAP, 3.) Grey cami top, 4.) sandals & 5.) kufi hat.

XOXO, 
Christal & Christina

First Day Of School Outfit Tips






Hey guys! Christina & I started school today. For many of our followers and readers you may have already started school, about to go back to school, or are officially done with school. For those who have to go back and those that have already finished all thought about first day of school outfits. We’ve all done it. On the first day back every one wants to show off their style and fresh new clothes, but it only lasts for a week. That’s because you guys are so eager and wear your new clothes in one week and start repeating the same outfits next week. 

Here are a few tips:

On the first day of school from now on mix it up a bit. Wear some of your new clothes and old clothes together so that way you have more options and won’t run out of your fresh new clothes. This way it’ll last longer than a week. You don’t have to do it just for back to school shopping, make it a habit and stretch out your clothes options for future events or parties.

When you’re comfortable you’re confident. A lot of people over-do it when showing off their style at school on the first day because they bought so many clothes and don’t know how to act. When getting your outfits together remember to dress comfortable because on the first day you’re getting used to finding your classes, finding your clique, and finding yourself. So don’t go walking around in 5 inch stilettos, short shorts, or mini crop top.

Three times out of ten, no one remember the clothes you wore from the previous year. With that said, go and try it out. Explore your closet, experiment, be creative, and put different outfits together using the clothes you bought with the clothes you already have. We both do this every year and it’s worked out successfully.

Can you guess what’s new and what’s old?  Exactly you can’t! Christal is wearing 1.) NEW boyfriend jeans  from Cotton On, 2.) NEW oxfords from Forever21, 3.) OLD button down shirt from the thrift store,  & an 4.) OLD Varsity jacket from Forever21. Christina is wearing 1.) OLD Jean Button up from Forever 21, 2.) NEW Black crop tops from H&M, 3.) NEW black jeans from GAP, & 4.) OLD Dr. Martens.

See without stating which of our garments were old and new you guys wouldn’t have had a clue. With that being said, try it out the next time you go shopping.

XOXO, Christal & Christina

Twins Meet World



We’re back! This summer we both thought that we’ll have time to blog more since we graduated from high school. Boy we were wrong! Besides the fact that we didn’t have a computer. 

Before we knew it summer was over. Today is move in day! I love that we chose a college that had our major and a college that was close to home. Not too close, but close enough. Yes, we are dorming together. We’ve been sharing a room for 18 years so it just seems easier to share a dorm. Plus, we don’t have to worry about a crazy roommate trying to kill one of us. Here is how we decorated our room so far. Our very first day of being college students is on August 25th where we will be majoring in Fashion Design and Fashion Merchandising. We’ll be blogging much more (we promise) now that we finally have our own laptop!

Dorm shopping is always fun and stores like target, k-mart, ikea, and wal-mart will have everything you need. Exploring the internet and blogs such as pinterest, instagram, and tumblr are helpful for diy projects and decorations (because no one wants to sit in a boring room) and you'll be living there for about 8 months so being comfortable is most important. Don't panic if you can't  find decorations in stores, try going on ebay, etsy, or amazon (super cheap stuff and free shipping!)


Oh yeah, we reached our 2nd year of blogging on Twin Vibes (Woot Woot)!

Spin Cycle

















We woke up super early to take pictures at the laundromat. Both of our outfits were purchased at the Goodwill except for our tank tops which were purchased at Forever21 and H&M, and our shoes  that were purchased at asos.com and drmartens.com 

*Big thanks to our close friend Val for taking the time out to take every single one of these photos and for taking us to in-n-out, she is truly talented and appreciated. #splitsontrees

Happiest Place On Earth



If you ever come to California, make sure to visit Disney Land. Just like the movies, everything there is full of happiness and joy. When you go, make sure to bring your camera, lot's of money, and comfortable shoes. Everything taste better at Disney Land, even their water fountain water taste like heaven.  We've been a hand full of times, but for our grad nite we got the chance to stay from 8am- 4am the following morning and experience everything. Despite the walking lol, hanging out with our senior class made up for it and it was truly a night to remember.

We wanted to incorporate our outfits to Disney Land while being fashionable, simple, and comfortable all at the same time. Christal was inspired by Minnie Mouses dress and made her flannel, while Christina made Mouse ears out of pearls. When you're comfortable you're confident, and we think that's very important, especially in the fashion world.

Thank you Valerie & Miguel for taking our pictures!
