American Girl

americangirlLast Sunday, I had the opportunity to volunteer for Hackensack University Medical Center to raise money and benefit their children’s hospital.  It was a day I wouldn’t trade for the world. I managed to rise up early 6am to get ready.  I threw on a Radiohead t-shirt, my Ed Sheeran varsity jacket, blue jeans and Steve Madden boots.  The hospital is only a short 15 minutes away and we had to arrive by 7:30am.

My friend, Leah, had signed me up prior to even asking me because I had been telling her how much I’ve been wanting to volunteer.  We were given the position of backstage-Model Dressers.  This fashion showcases girls ages 6-12 and they had multiple costume changes.  Being a fashion major, I’ve always wanted to witness the hectic nature of being backstage at a show.  This was no big fashion week show but it was still a lot of pressure as they needed to head off to hair and makeup after we dressed them.

The Beginning of the End…of Internships?

Via Sprudge.com

Internships are a gateway to a career.  In this day and age, unfortunately, most are unpaid which leads to heated debates and lawsuits being flung left and right like a frisbee.  While it would be nice to get paid for the work that I do as an intern, all I really care about is being treated right and gaining experience from it all.  I’ve been blessed that I’ve never been taken advantage of (knock on wood) and my bosses are the sweetest in the world.

Read Your Books and Wear Them Too

IMG_0341I can’t go anywhere without a good book stowed in my bag.  At times, I wish I could show my appreciation of a good book by showing the world.  I didn’t think there would be a way until I found Tori’s store on Etsy.  I stared in awe at her original works of art based on literary novels such as Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre.

3.1 Philip Lim for Target

target-phillip-lim-fw13-01The anticipated designer collaboration has hit stores and online today and the was much frenzy.  I wasn’t shopping or aware of these collaborations when Missoni was launched, but from what I hear, it was a chaos.  I began shopping these collaborations starting with Jason Wu for Target.  It was not as bad but I did have to stay up past midnight to snag a few items online and then try to see if I could get lucky in store.  I’ve grown wiser since then.  Last night did not run smoothly, however.

Tadashi Shoji Spring 2014

Tadashi Shoji

Hello Spices!

New York Fashion Week kicked off last week and I have been watching the multitude of designs strut down the runway with bated breath.  There are plenty of designers that have caught my eye and my heart, but the one who stole it was Tadashi Shoji.  He was by far the most different from the others.  I absolutely loved the surprise plaid in his designs.  Plaid? In the spring? Unheard of.
