So this day was spent with some of my favorite people who threw me a surprise party for my 18th birthday. 18. That’s a pretty pivotal moment in a teenage girls’ life. Maybe I won’t be at the club every weekend but 18 is still another year older. I could get that tattoo I’ve always wanted (haha no I can’t thanks to my parents), or i could get married (again not happening) but still knowing these are tangible things is pretty crazy to think about. I feel like my life is just starting with the commencement of college- new people, new classes, new ways of thinking. People say when they turn 18, they have a different outlook on life. Their priorities change, their interests change, and everything in between. It’s all too exciting to think about and I can’t wait to see what 18 has in store for me!

Desire

IMG_9187

Desire is the strong feeling of wanting something important to happen to you. Looking back on it, the only desires I  had growing up was the desire to get the boy in math class to like me, but those have changed along with age. Now my desires fall under careers and personal goals that I hope to achieve in the future. Many people are scared of their desires because it means they have something to work toward that they may fail at, but in reality that should be more of a push.

One thing I probably have the most desire for is fashion. I have the desire to grow in the world of fashion and find my true calling within in. Growing up I always loved fashion, even though I didn’t really understand it. I knew I always had to have cohesive pieces so I didn’t look completely crazy, but it also gave me joy when I put a specific outfit on. Fashion is a way to display your personality on a different level from others because you call the shots. With that much power and decision you are allowed, you are bound to make something magical from it.

With the infinite amounts of bad days and heartbreaks we experience in a lifetime, desire keeps us sane. It’s a way for us to persevere and consummate our hoped for milestones, which should be enough of a reason to see desire as a positive and not an intimidating and daunting task.

Celeb Spotlight: Emma Watson

We are crossing the pond today with this celebrity spotlight and focusing all of our attention on Emma Watson. (or Hermoine, for all you die hard Harry Potter fans) When I think of Emma Watson I think of class, because she is probably the classiest woman out there. You can see it in the way she speaks, but also in the way she dresses. She is effortless and chic where ever she finds herself.

Take this outfit for example. It is the simplest thing, yet she pulls it off so well with her accessories and hair. She knows how to make an outfit cohesive with even the simplest pieces (considering this outfit is only two items).

She has also nailed the monochromatic look as you can see in these pictures. She has a naturally put together and chic look that compliments her outfits unbelievably. (I wish i could look that good sprinting to the store in my overalls)

Celeb Spotlight: Selena Gomez

I’ve been a personal fan of Selena Gomez since Wizards of Waverly Place. Anyone else? I loved her, but I specifically loved her fashion choices. Starting off she was a bit of a tomboy, which I loved because she embodied my style as a thirteen year old, but as she grew up so did her fashion.

As most can see from the copious amounts of pictures of her leaving an airport or picking up some food, she loves monochromatic and basic pieces that she tends to put her own twist on.  She ranges from jeans, a t-shirt and heels to a cute dress and booties, which makes it that much more interesting when new pictures surface.

Another thing I love is her effortlessness. Everything she wears looks like she put A LOT of effort into it, but probably thought about it an hour before walking out the door. Nonetheless, I would kill to have her wardrobe and pull off half of the things she does, so hats off to you Selena.

 

 

Fashion Week

Fashion Week has just wrapped up and it was such an eventful one! Shows from Rihanna’s to DVF’S sent their guests to another world for the five minutes they were present.

Rihanna Fenty Puma:

Let’s begin with Rihanna’s show. This lady can do no wrong, and she definitely proved that with this collection. She showcased her edgy and risqué designs that incorporated some of the coolest and ingenious pieces to feature on the runway. She was not afraid to bring her love for street style and multiply it by 50. Maybe because it’s Rihanna, maybe because it was genius. Nevertheless, her casual attire mixed with the offbeat and gritty fabrics created a memorable show.

DVF:
DVF’S resort show left people with a nostalgia people couldn’t shake off. (of the 70’s that is) Although she incorporated eccentric pieces and colors to her normally classic designs, her genius visions made this show cohesive and impressive. She kept the femininity of her clothes while adding a fun and light twist with the colors and cuts she manifested. We can all agree her runway show kicked butt, but nobody can deny her interactive show featuring some of the hottest models took the cake. Guests watched the most fashionable ladies walk around the venue in some of the coolest and pleasing outfits.

Kanye West:
Like always, Kanye West definitely put on a presentation. His release party meets fashion show that took place in Madison Square Garden had people talking for days. The release of his new album and showcase of his new line left people speechless and maybe a little bit confused. His signature nude collection made a comeback as models strategically stood on blocks while his album played. Continuing his unconventional ways, he invited people to dance and model by his runway leaving people impressed and a bit envious.

DUMBO, BROOKLYN

IMG_2224IMG_2228IMG_2258IMG_2237IMG_2259IMG_2261IMG_2262

Dumbo, Brooklyn the smallest, but busiest “town” in New York. One main street connecting to a bunch of tiny side streets makes this place both quaint and modern, making everybody who enters fall in love. I know I did walking through on this chilly and windy day, but don’t worry we braced the cold and got the pictures down!
