What I Am Wearing

I cannot believe it is already almost the end of October! I am counting down the days till Thanksgiving, Christmas and then my birthday in January. For many living in the Midwest/East Coast the weather is already starting to get cool, however not in LA. The other day it was in the high eighties while other days it will be in the sixties. The weather is not the bad part, its what to wear that really messes with your wardrobe. Going to a fashion school (FIDM) one day everyone will be in their trendy summer clothes while the next day everyone is in head to toe layers. I officially give up haha

Obsession #6

Timberland Trend…

So I have seen this trend SO much in LA. I was very hesitant about it but then the more I kept witnessing people wear these boots I slowly started to want a pair. FINALLY today I bought some, being completely honest they are not name brand Timberland boots but they are such good quality and I instantly fell in love once I tried them on. These boots are SO 90’s but I kinda love it. So many celebs have been spotted wearing this trend, especially one of my favorite Kardashians.

I really want to experiment with different looks I can pair the boots with and today it was the perfect temperature for an over sized sweater.

Back 2 School

I officially started my VERY last quarter at FIDM! I thought I would share my first day of school look with all of you. This past week I have been so busy, I have moved into a new apartment with my friend Drew. Be on the lookout for an apartment tour. Also, I am still interning at both Rachel Zoe and Chic Little Devil so that is keeping me busy. I can not believe I am in my very last quarter, time sure does fly.

Obsession #5

As I said in my last post, I have done a lot of summer shopping. Nordstrom had a huge sale these past few weekends and I took advantage of that. From shopping and going to FIDM, I am always noticing new trends and trying to incorporate them into my wardrobe. I have been obsessed with the knit sweater sleeveless crop top, and I have seen tons of celebrities and students at my school wearing them. I love the look and high neckline, along with how cute they look on. The 90’s is making a comeback and I love it!

Obsession #4

Hellooooo alll,

I have some exciting news!!

1. I am almost done with my fourth quarter at FIDM.

2. Summer break is just around the corner. This means more obsession/outfit posts and whatever else I feel like posting.

3. I have recently bought SOOO many new clothes and I can not wait to post them!!

School this quarter has been VERY crazy. I have been so busy with projects, homework and learning stupid photoshop. Also, I have been applying for various internships, so keep your fingers crossed!! I also have exciting plans this summer, I will be taking a trip to NY. There I am going to tour FIT and of course explore the city. I promise to document everything and post all about it. I am looking into going to FIT for my bachelors after FIDM, since I will only have my associates degree.

Anyways, on to my latest obsession!

The overized coat trend, is a trend we saw appear in winter, and is making its way through spring/summer. This trend is also known as “The man coat”. The oversized coat is shapeless and straight through the back and torso but it is structured on the shoulder and hip. However, do not mistaken “oversized” for poor fitting this is where the challenge is. An oversized coat has to look intentional, fashion forward and drape in just the right way. Basically, all of the Kardashians have been rocking this trend. Love them or hate them, they know how to wear this trend perfectly.

Below is my version of the trend. I found my oversized coat at Nordstrom Rack. I had to get it because it was the very last one, it was my size, and most importantly it was originally $150 and I bought it for $16. Any fashionista would not pass that up!!

Second Year Tote!

As many of you may know, I officially started my second year at FIDM! Second year means you get your mini tote bag, this is a BIG deal at FIDM. When you first start FIDM you receive a huge tote bag to carry supplies/carry around, but second year students get a smaller version. I could not wait to get my mini tote and walk around FIDM with it!

I had my first week of classes and along with my first week of homework. The way FIDM works is that classes are 3 hours long, once a week, which means you get 6 hours of homework. So the quarter gets a little crazy, but goes by quickly. For those who do not know the quarter system is used at FIDM, this means students go to school for 10 weeks and then get 2 1/2 weeks off. I honestly love this system!

As a present to myself this quarter, I bought myself a Marc Jacobs watch. I love it and I have been wearing it everyday since I bought it. I liked the gold and silver mix, so I can wear both colors.

Lakers Game

This past Sunday I had the opportunity to attend the LA Lakers VS the Memphis Grizzles game. I brought along my friend Hailey from school and we had a fun Sunday night. While walking around LA Live before the game we got to watch the celebrities arrive to the MTV Movie Awards which was being taped right next to the Staples Center. LA Live was crazy crowded but it was fun to watch the madness.

We had amazing seats at the game! The game itself was close, and the Memphis Grizzles won.

I decided to wear a cute black boyfriend blazer, with a grey v neck t-shirt, black skinny jeans, and pointy toed kitten heels. I call it casual fabulous!

San Diego got a dose of Marie!

My last few days of spring break were spent in San Diego! I have never traveled to this part of California and took a train ride along the coast to get there. My aunt, uncle and two cousins were there while my uncle had a convention/meetings to attend. They invited me to tag alone and hang out with them at their hotel and explore. Of course I said yes! Vacationing with my aunt involves a lot of good eating, drinking and shopping. Which we did!

DAY 1

I arrived in San Diego in the late afternoon, we stayed at the Hilton Bayfront hotel. It was BEAUTIFUL, our room was on the 30th floor, overlooking the bay.

Image

Image

We quickly walked to San Diego’s Little Italy and explored. It was such a fun little town. I am basically 100% Italian so it was nice to finally be around some true Italian culture since moving to LA. We had reservations at this Italian restaurant Bencotto. The restaurant was amazing, they served all homemade pasta and everything was made from scratch. I ordered homemade black squid ink gnocchi with lobster bisque sauce with shrimp.

Image

DAY 2

The second day of my trip we went for breakfast and walked around the Gaslamp Quarter. It is filled with restaurants, shops and art galleries. After we took a 2 hour boat tour. It was so nice to be out on the water and see how beautiful San Diego is.

Image

Image

After we took the boat tour we got ready for dinner. We had reservations at the new restaurant Juniper and Ivy. My aunt and cousin are huge fans of  the show top chef and the winner Richard Blais opened this restaurant. We got to talk with the chef, Richard Blais, himself and he even gave us a private tour of this kitchen. The food was amazing and was one of my favorite meals of all time.

Day 3

The third day we went shopping and laid out by the pool the rest of the day. The pool was crowded but it was nice to finally be laying out in the warm sun.

Day 4

The fourth day was my last day! It was so much fun to see my family and I had such a fun time. I took a train in the afternoon and back to LA I went.

Obsession #3.

This post involves two trends that I have been liking, harem pants and cropped tops.

When people think of harem pants you think of, the baggy, slouchy trousers tapered at the ankles? Images of Aladdin and MC Hammer then pop up in your head? Well the harem pant is the go-to statement piece. After witnessing many FIDM students sport these pants with such confidence and ease, I had to try the trend. This effortless beach/boho vibe just screams comfortable.

While wearing these pants balance the silhouette with a form fitting top in a solid color and slip on sandals or heels. A higher heel will lengthen the look and make it more formal for a night out; wedges or booties look great too!

Image

While shopping for this trend I came across a crop top, which is a trend I normally don’t wear. For years I have kept wishing and wanting crop tops to go out of style. The new way to style a crop top is to just show a small bit of skin, Kim Kardashian rocks this trend.

Image

After trying on this crop top I figured why not, and paired it with my new harem pants.

Image

Image

This is my new favorite “going out” look, and I recommend everyone try this trend.
