Prior to attending FIT I was obsessed with The Style Network (before reality TV took over and when I would actually enjoy watching Elizabeth Hasselbeck...), MTV's House of Style (which coincidentally was also my first introduction to Kevyn Aucoin!) Fashion Television, Behind the Velvet Ropes with Lauren Ezersky, you name it, if it was available to watch, I was all in.
Not too much has changed since then aside from maybe not being AS clued in as I once was. I mean who has time to sit and immerse themselves in all things fashion all day long?
Now, thankfully, if I have a question I can hit my younger brother up since he is a student at LIM in NY (and he ALWAYS knows the answer, he is my walking fashion encyclopedia) so I stay current with what time allows me to.

No, not necessarily setting up difference scenarios in various vignettes using the latest most expensive camera and/or camera person, and/or tripod possibly with lighting and a decent dose of photoshop and filters...just my handy dandy iPhone and me with an armful of clothing...or 7 pieces maximum, you know whatever the dressing room attendant allows; and I get my try on, uh, on!
|Forever 21 dress that I thought was ugly but cute. Very hippie chic|
NOW? The weight is still on my side...and on this side, and that side...and in the front...in the back. You name it its there! So now I MUST try EVERYTHING on for the most part or go home and stare at my self in horror.
|Another Forever 21 excursion f. a Biggie 'Brooklyn We Go Hard' sleeveless tee and an asymetric sheer skirt. I got the tee!|
|I have wanted a striped blazer forever...and I still dont have one. Can we say referee? And the whole return of the hammer pants trend? Eh...I wasnt convinced. I still want a striped blazer...this happened at H&M|
|Bustier c/o the Mrs Carter collection at H&M...yes I purchased it. I dont think they ready for this jelly! HA!|
|Freakum dress also c/o the Mrs Carter x H&M collection. It was like $18, of course I got it!|
|H&M trip again - golden bralette was $5! The dress not so much but paired together I liked it. SOLD!|
|Grecian goddess flow|
|oh look! Its the striped blazer again, on yet another day...and I STILL dont have a striped blazer LOL or a peplum top but it was cute and I still want it...the blazer and the top|
|see? you could tell I thought it was cute...I hope its still there...|
