Rest in peace to my sweet soul mate summer, because you are basically Justin Timberlake “Dead and Gone.” Of course if I lived somewhere like say Laguna Beach, CA (where I’m headed to tomorrow) it would not matter so much because the temps don’t drop faster than a Diplo beat there. Unfortunately I am still a north east bitch & I’ll be breaking out my faux fur coat in no time. This summer has been different than the past few, as I graduated college in December and am not partying a few months away until the next semester starts. I have spent part of the warmer months working in the corporate office of Ralph Lauren, which now qualify me to compare myself to Jennifer Aniston as that is where Rachel from Friends worked. You probably think that I took the job for the sole reason of comparing myself to the holy grail that is Jen, and I am not going to confirm nor deny that… But since that gig is not full time I have also been interviewing half of my ass off, exercising the other half of it off and spending some time with my family at the beach in between. As I anxiously await to hear back from two different companies as to whether I will be offered a position as their showroom assistant, one is a jewelry company and the other is a yoga wear company, I will be heading to my future home town of Laguna Beach, California to spend time with my sister, and my floridian father along with his girlfriend who for geographical reasons I have not seen in quite a while. I will also be visiting my uncle who lives in Los Angeles, so stay tuned for a post on my Cali inspired fashions when I get back! For now, I posted a few pictures of outfits I wore so far these past couple of weeks and where you can find my fashions. And please, if you do one thing for me, I ask that you enjoy the rest of your summer and spend some quality time with your loved ones as well!
Headed to a Bridal Shower to celebrate my beautiful friend Dianne. Michael Kors dress, American Eagle necklace, Free People sandals. My 23rd birthday celebration with my beautiful friends Gab (who I share a birthday with) and Gianna. My maxi dress is from Urban Outfitters. I loved the two slits on the sides. I paired my Jeffrey Campell boots and Breedazzled necklaces and bracelets with this dress.
One pieces can be sexy too! This one is from American Apparel which I rocked in Miami for Fourth of July weekend.
My world is all white, or at least my apartment is! This dress is by Bohemian Bones and my amazing leather jacket which you cannot really see well is by All Saints, a special item I treated myself to for my birthday.
An all black look for Alicia’s grad party, picture taken in my sister’s messy ass closet. Top was hers though so I can’t complain too much about her! It is by For Love and Lemons and she wore it to her Junior formal. Paired it with Dr Martens (also hers, whoops) and Gypsy Warrior shorts. Bag is by Reiss of London.
That is all the fashions for now. Above is a picture I took in the West Village of NYC where I live. I liked the “Protect Your Magic” because it is so true. Everyone has a talent, something special that makes you, you! Do not let anybody steal or conceal it. Protect it with your heart, and live a magical life doing what you love, with who you love, where you love. And of course, wearing what you love!
