Fashion U Class of 2013

This past weekend has been a great one. I was able to attend Teen Vogue's Fashion University. I has the privilege of seeing so many people who work in the industry. I learned a lot and had a great time in New York City. I made sure to document everything to share with all of you. 

    Friday night was a pre-party hosted by Express 
The first seminar on Saturday morning was of Amy Astley and the Teen Vogue Editors, including Andrew Bevan, Gloria Braucht, ElaineWelteroth, Sheena Smith, and Dana Mathews.
The next seminar was by sisters Danielle and Jodie Synder, the jewelry designing duo of Dannijo.
 After Dannijo was Teen Vogue intern turned fashion designer Thakoon Panichgul.
Jessie Randall was one designer I hadn't heard of before this weekend. Jessie and her husband started the Loeffler Randall shoe brand launched in 2005 when Jessie couldn't find shoes she wanted anywhere.
Express designers Dean Mickelwhite and Anna Wen also had their own seminar. It was really interesting about how they work with such a large design team where each of them is in charge of a smaller design team for their category (Dean is head of Menswear and Anna is head of Knits).
The last seminar on Saturday was a bloggers seminar. Emily Weiss & Nick Axelrod of Into The Gloss and Stephanie Mark & Jake Rosenburg of The Coveteur talked about how they started their blogs a few years ago as a side project and their journey of becoming full time bloggers.
After a quick chat with Amy Astley, there was a viewing of The Editors Eye, which is a documentary about the Vogue editors.  

And that was a quick summery of my weekend at Teen Vogue University. If you were there this weekend leave a comment below and let me know what you thought.

Kepping Leather Cool

Hi my loves,

So it is almost Fall, but we still have a few more weeks of summer and warm weather left. I decided to create a transitional outfit inspiration for the leather trend. Leather can be found everywhere this Fall and its never to early to start rocking a trend.

This outfit incorporates leather shorts and boots. The stripped crop top and beanie add a punk/grunge look to the outfit, which is also a trend for the upcoming season. Touches of gold add the final details to complete the look.

If you like these outfit posts and want to give me an idea for my next outfit inspiration leave a comment!

Lot of Love

This Past Week...

Hello my lovelies,
Hope you all had a good because I know that I did and I wanted to share my experience with you.
So last Sunday I made the car ride from my house in South Jersey to New York City. Being an upcoming Senior in high school, I have been thinking about college. I know in my heart that fashion was in my future, but this past week I got to spend the whole week taking classes at LIM College. I stayed in the dorms, made amazing friends, and took great classes.
The my morning class was Fashion Magazine. I was lucky enough to have one of my two roommates, Madi, in that class. We partnered up to create a street style magazine called STREETS.

I was thinking of uploading some of the pages of STREETS for my next post. Let me know in the comments if you would like to see them.
Madi also has a blog called Imagine MADness if you want to check it out.

My second class was Celebrity Styling. This class led up to a photo shoot on Friday. The concept for the shoot was: to style Taylor Swift in a Punk Chaos spread in Nylon. Her are some behind the scenes of the photo shoot.

These are just pictures I took on my phone, but I will be posting the real photographs from the photograph in a few weeks.
I loved working on this photo shoot and pulling the clothes. Although all the research was a bit annoying, I was so happy with the outcome.
Just so you know the matching top and bottom are from H&M and the shoes belonged to the model Olga.  
While researching for the shoot, our class took a trip to the MET's Punk Chaos exhibit. You weren't suppose to take pictures there but here are a few that I got to take.

I would recommend everyone to go to see this exhibit before it closes. The achieved clothes were absolutely beautiful.
So there's a little wrap up of my week at LIM. Let me know if you like these kind of posts in the comments :)

Summer Dresses

Hi Loves,

In the summer dresses are my favorite thing to wear in the hot weather. Their simple, easy, and cool to throw on in the morning and your all ready for your day.

Here are some cute summer dresses anyone could wear this summer.

The first dress is a simple floral dress paired with neutral sandals.
The second is a monochrome dress with black loafers. This look is simple and chic, perfect for a day to night look when swapping out the loafers for heels.
The third dress is a black maxi dress. A black maxi is a staple summer piece because it can be dressed up or down. It can be paired with a flower crown for a festival ready boho look, like above. Or you could dress it up and look ultra chic.
Each look is complete with a pair of fun sunglasses which tops off every summer look.
How do you like to pair your summer dresses? Let e know in the comments!
Until next time...

Alber Elbaz for Lancome

Hey Everyone!

Hope you are all having an amazing summer so far.

I was on YouTube for my daily fix of fashion and beauty videos when I came across this adorable ad for Alber Elbaz for Lancôme. Usually, like most people, I don't pay attention to advertisements or skip them if possible. But this commercial just drew me in. It is just so cute and adorable that I wanted to share it with you.

I also did some research on Alber Elbaz, because I didn't know much about him. Alber Elbaz is an Israeli fashion designer who has worked for the Paris fashion house Lanvin since 2001. Elbaz won the International Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) in June 2005 and was named one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2007.

Let me know what your thoughts are on this commercial in the comments below. Also if you tried the makeup from this let me know because I was thinking of stopping by the Lancôme counter.
