My Dream Destinations

I recently finished off the school year and one of my favorite courses was World Geography. It wasn't really because of the absolute or relative location of the countries, although that is totally helpful, it was more for the beauty of the places that I got to study. I have always wanted to jet off to Europe because my mom inspired me with her college backpacking stories. Even more than that was the description of each place that she went to. Going to London and Paris were obvious givens but I would have never thought to visit certain places had it not been learned in class. I now want to visit the beautiful tulip fields of the Netherlands, Balmoral castle in Scotland, haggis is not part of my wish here. I am prone to adventure, but I'm no Andrew Zimmern. If I think about what it really is, I don't think that I'll go that bizzare with foods.I want to marvel at the wonder of these places and immerse myself in the ways of the world. I am most likely to go to Spain and Germany one day as well, these being some of the top spots on my list. Greece is the top! I want to...... let's just say.....go everywhere. Life is short. I plan to live it globally, because travelling is always and always will be......quite frankly, in fashion.
Here are a few of the many places that I want to visit:

 Buckingham Palace. Prince Harry anyone? Santorini, Greece is beautiful and so are these tulips in Amsterdam.

Fashion in Editorial

Just because I have been off of the radar for almost a year, that doesn't mean that I have stopped reading fashion magazines. Fashion magazines are an addiction for me because after six years of reading them, I haven't tired of them yet. At this point in time, I don't think I ever will. Some of my favorite publications of the industry are of course both American and British Vogue, Teen Vogue, Elle, and NYLON. (one of my all time favorites). What I love in the magazine world right now is the June 2011 issue of Vogue. Why do I love it? Well:
1. The cover is beautiful.
2. The fashion layouts have made it clear that summer is finally here.
3. The photographs inside are amazing, (they always are).
4. Grace Coddington, renowned fashion editor showcases her amazing talent yet again. She is an inspiration to me due to her ability to capture a moment beautifully everytime, no matter what the theme of the shoot, her creativity is always new, interesting, abstract, and utterly fantastic.
5. Reading the articles only makes me want to go on vacation more.
I love Vogue because it is always classy. Best of all, it is always in fashion. Best $3.99 I ever spent.

Here we go AGAIN!!!

So, I know haven't exactly been the model blogger. I mean, I haven't actually blogged on a regular basis. With all of the school work and my busy schedule, I have had no time to write about what I love. Fashion. In the time since I last posted, I have added several new vintage pieces to my closet. Best of all, I redid my closet! This makes my job so much easier in the morning by enabling me to see ALL of my clothes at one time. Anyway, now that it is my first official day of summer, I plan to and plan to keep this plan of planning stay faithful to all who follow and to meet the expectations of a normal blogger. I aim to go beyond this time around, by keeping everyone posted frequently. With that, let this be my first official post of my new, improved, I guess, first OFFICIAL and up to date blog.

 The Look A Like Jean Jordace Jacket

 The Look-A-Like Inspiration

Countdown to Class: What Am I Going to Wear?

Well, here it is, 2 days before school is to start and I finally know what I'm going to wear... I decided on a blue Gap V-Neck (on sale) and I will pair it with the Material Girl belt I just bought at Macy's for $15. I will wear my tried and true frilly black skirt from the thrift store that I have had forever and black socks with my black ankle boots that have silver studs on them. I wore those boots everyday trekking around New York. They are from the Nordstrom Rack and are normally $165 but I got them for $42!!! I will top the look off with my awesome Jordace jean jacket from the 80s it is acid washed and has bows coming up the back. As for jewels--- I decided on a multistrand pearl necklace from Forever 21. It was $7.80 and it instantly dresses up a plain t-shirt. However you girls want to dress it up or dress it down for your first day make sure that you feel like a million bucks. Who's kidding, you know you will. Happy Shopping to all!!! Here are some pieces to my look with the prices.

What makes Ms. Bardot so fabulous? Just look at some of her iconic fashion moments....

The beehive......need I say more?
 This is my all time fave
 Brigitte captured classic...

There's Something About Brigitte........

Hi everyone! I have had tons of icons but one of my all time favorites is Brigitte Bardot because she was one of the 60s icons. She sported the beehive like no other and her style has gone on to inspire runway looks and hollywood stars alike. I love her style because it was one word. Classic but with an edge....What's best is that thrift stores have so many pieces for one to recreate her closet. Her poise was part of her class. Her clothes were timeless and when you think of 60s bombshells you automatically think of Brigitte Bardot. She was so multifaceted when it came to her appearance. She could be classic and elegant one minute and high fashion "don't mess with me" the next. She was French, flawless and fabulous every day 24/7 and she set the ground for generations to come.


Even Halloween is a Fashion Opportunity!

The Bride

My Mom made this Fashionable Bride costume. She bought a vintage old wedding dress, soaked it in black dye so it would get that "old" look. She quickly rinsed it so it would not totally dye all the way. I worked at a haunted house for charity and we stained it with fake blood...I also found an old wig at the thrift shop. My total costume was like $8.00.
