Paper Lashes

I just found out about cut paper lashes when looking for feather lashes on Sephora.com. I am so in love right now. I wore fake lashes for the first time at the fashion show and thought that decorative lashes would be a cool summer photo shoot idea. xoxo

La Belle Fleur

La Belle Fleur

I have really been inspired by flowers and floral prints lately. I think it has to do with the fact I am in a spring mood. However, this snowstorm really messed me up and confused all of the flowers. This gorgeous dress is from my love Elie Saab. I usually don't wear a lot of pink or florals right now. Most of my clothes are black, blue, or grey. I want to revamp my entire closet this summer with a classic/trendy versatile wardrobe. I have clothes in there from the 8th grade and I am finishing my freshman year of college. So, SPRING CLEANING AHOY! xo

And most exciting is that May 27 I am going to be seeing my favorite band, The Kooks, with my best friend!!! I have been swarmed with work lately, but this summer I want to start taking pictures of my outfits as a summer project and then posting them on here for you guys. xo

Happy Easter

Happy Easter

This Givenchy dress is the perfect dress for spring. The print is in the color of the season, orange, as a graphic floral. The orange pops against a complementary light blue background. I love how modest the cut is so that none of the pattern is obscured by a low neckline or super short skirt. I hope you all had a nice time this weekend! xo

A Dose of Norman Norell

Norman Norell: Evening Suit, 1963-65

I am enticing you to read this post with a picture of a gorgeous Norman Norell dress. Sadly, my life has been consumed with finishing projects- which includes my fashion designers paper about Norman Norell and Karl Lagerfeld. I get to go home Friday though because Saturday is my b-day and I will hopefully get an interview Monday morning for TJMAxx. For a small dose of Fashion History, Norman Norell was the first great couture designer in America making beautiful Ready-to-Wear during the world wars and the sixties. One of the many designs he was famous for were fully sequined "mermaid" gowns that were made to look like glimmering fish scales. So when you see something fully sequined or beaded, think of Norman Norell.
And if any of you do time on your hands, feel free to check out my Tumblr blogs!

"18th Century Cosmo"

I saw this when I was on memebase............ when I obviously should be studying. I found this fake Cosmopolitan magazine amusing since I was working on my fashion history homework earlier. Then of course, I had to inspect the image- making a mental inventory of what I saw: bell sleeves, rounded neckline, chemise, and so on. I find the "101 Ways to Drop A Handkerchief" very amusing because it reminds of when in Pride and Prejudice Lydia tries to drop her handkerchief in order for an officer to pick it up for her and later asks Lizzie if she dropped hers on purpose too when Wickham picks her handkerchief off the ground. My magazines of choice are Vogue, Instyle, and Glamour because of the amount of fashion content and beautiful spreads. I also like to look at all off the ads that fill up the pages to see what's trending in fashion, marketing, or to be jealous that I can't afford anything.
