obsessions of the day

Today has been a fashion obsessed day.

{not that I ever DON’T have a fashion obsessed day…but today was particularly fashion-y}

To start, I wore my faux fur vest for the first time…definate mood booster. Secondly, I stumbled across the most immaculate picture of Zac Posen…fashion god and delicious eye candy.  yum yum. Thirdlyyyy, I became more familiar with a few of fashion’s fresh faces {Abbey Lee Kershaw, Imogen Morris Clarke, Anna Selezneva and Kemp Muhl to name a few…}. AND FINALLYY, I organized my internship schedule for the remainder of the semester {fashion brunches, shop walks, launch parties, fashion week model castings, and photoshoots galore!!}. Is it possible to be high off of fashion? I believe so.

Zac Posen. eihroihfljwrwqpoidlkfhs SO YUMMY! Don’t you agree?

(sorry for the excitement)

Kemp Muhl. Somewhat of a scandal {Daisy Lowe-type persona}. That’s why I love her….

Imogen Morris Clarke. Doe-eyed, 17 year old goof-ball. So cute.

Anna Selezneva. Walked in AWang, Balmain, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, etc. etc…..she’s got the whole alphabet!

Abbey Lee Kershaw. Aussie. Pierced Nose. Tats. Nuff Said.

shopping day

FINALLYYYYYY…a shopping day!!! I have been lacking some Fall/Winter essentials which NEEDED to make a way into my wardrobe. Here are some staples of the season that I picked up during my Thanksgiving break and the pictures that inspired my purchases:

Faux Fur Vest: Obvious must have for warmth and fashion purposes. I have be suffering without one forever and my life finally feels complete.

Black, lace-up, wedge boots: Practically EVERY designer from AWang to Phi to Chloe to Proenza to Mui Mui have created a pair of these immaculate commodities…I felt like I was the ONLY person without some! Not anymoooorreee… {acne wedges}

Statement Bauble/Chain Necklace: I bought 2 of these…the first is a thick, gold chain entangled with smaller ribbons and chains. The other one is layered silver and gold chains. Perfect bold pieces for my typical black ensemble. {oscar de la renta & dkny necklaces}

Embellished, Cropped Jacket: Doesn’t have much of a warmth-factor but looks chic and professional at the same time. SUCCESS.

Grey Wrap Coat: The coziest thing I have EVER tried on. It reminds me of my college sweatshirt… minus the “library sesh” look.

decorate me

It’s the holiday season and it’s time to decorate! Ornaments, wreaths, lights, baubles, tinsel…RINGS!  Like I’ve said before, I love rings…I always wear at least 4. However, when it’s hot and sticky outside, rings are the last things I want confining my fingers (humidity = fat fingers EW!). It’s just starting to get cold in Charleston and it’s time to break out the decorations. The festive season calls for festive fingers…red polish and cocktail rings GALORE! These pictures put me in the holiday spirit…almost as much as a decked out tree.


(most pictures feature the Olsen’s…they know how to decorate!)

body is art

nudes. the body as a canvas.

This post is inspired by my drawing class. This week, we are drawing nudes. Most people are scared, embarrassed or disgusted about the thought of staring at a random person’s naked body for 3 hours. To be honest, I don’t know how I will react or what I will think during the first few minutes. HOWEVER, I do know that I read way to many fashion magazines picturing half naked… or fully naked models….to be fazed. I should be used to it right? The idea of the body as art is something that the fashion industry thrives on….what are models? – Canvases for fabric artwork of course!! So that will be my exact mindset when walking into my drawing class this Thursday.  I CAN’T WAIT! Isn’t it fun comparing fashion to real life?
