Noble Days

This necklace was a Christmas present. I know that the bar necklace style is a mite out of fashion, more like Spring/Summer, but I love this piece so much I've been wearing it ever since I got it. As you might have figured out already, I'm loving my cardigans. I love a nice long style, that can be worn effortlessly over the shoulders and down to the wrists. These photos were actually taken on a trip to the mall. We spent most of our time browsing in Barnes and Nobles, like we always do, and then had a long lunch after I was able to snatch a table from the mob scene that made up the food court. The sweater-white jean-and boots combination has dominated many posts on my blog of late, I actually wear this in everyday life - it is my new uniform. The French think that the idea of a "uniform" in a woman is a sign of definite style. I think that if my side of the hemisphere accepted the uniform look, it would be a lot easier to rewear the pieces I love!
#messyhair is my new look :)

Singing With The Lights

This is what I wore for a Holiday concert at the Meyerson. A great dress, great shoes, great necklace, I guess you could call this outfit a collection of a few of my favorite pieces. Anyway, the bag is an old one from Vogue, probably from the late '90s or early 2000s. My mother let me borrow it, as well as the cardigan in the photos below. Speaking of my mother, below is a duo selfie. And the performance? Awesome. Except for one thing - I was recovering from a cough, and coughed through the entire duration of Bring a Torch Jeannette Isabella and two other songs (literally, like I was having a coughing seizure or something, without stopping for a second) until a lady was kind enough to give me a cough drop. Funny now, embarrassing and night-marish then.

Bits of My Week: Queen of Hearts, Holiday Concerts, and The Nutcracker

I got to play the loathsome Queen of Hearts in my school's Production of Alice in Wonderland. It was nice to be able to scream my lines (when in doubt, a simple "Off with his/her head was needed." Here I am with my Dad, who came with my mother to see the production.

Pre-Fall 2014 Collections, My Favorites

Here are some of my favorite Pre-Fall 2014 collection photographs. I feel that if one photo from a collection is able to capture the entire mood of the rest of the collection, then I'm dealing with a talented designer.

Glitter Over The Top

Glitter is taking over. Glitter is showing its never dulling self on faces, jewelry, craft boxes, and now on clothing. For me, whenever I think of glitter I think of silver glitter, and whenever I think of glitter, I think of Andy Warhol and his factory. The intentionally over-the-top, aluminium-like silver, instantly makes me think; "Okay, it's not necessarily the minimal glitter I'm used to, but it's better." These photographs make me feel like the future is coming decades early. You remember the cold metallic look of the futuristic films? Clean silver and white, and sheen to materials. Movies like The Host, The Hunger GamesGuardians of the Galaxy, and others all display that future look. Which makes me think of silver glitter. Of course, not all of these images consist of just silver glitter, but they all convey a sense of party, the future, and I love them.
