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

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!

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.

Its been awhile…

So first off, I want to apologize for not posting in awhile 😦

I have been SO busy since I last posted, which was November. So I am going to catch you all up so you can be in the loop!

I went back to Chicago for Thanksgiving and happily finished my 2nd quarter with all A’s and one B. I then went home for Christmas/winter break. During my break I spent time with my family and close friends. I tried to stay warm when the temperature was -40 degrees. YES that’s right -40 degrees I wanted to cry, but my tears would freeze.

Break quickly ended and I then started my 3rd quarter at FIDM. The quarter went by slow at first and then quickly ended. I took many fun classes such as Fabric ID, Trends and Fashion Forecasting, and CAD, which I have a hate/love relationship with. I also had the opportunity to take on an internship. I currently intern at the Daniel Rainn showroom, it has been such a fun opportunity to see the wholesale side of the fashion industry. Lastly, I had the opportunity to attend MAGIC in Las Vegas. I got tickets through my school since I am apart of the Premier Product Development Group. There I got to see all the upcoming lines for spring/summer ’14, went to fashion shows and seminars. Between that and school I have been very busy! I ended the quarter/my first year with straight A’s which I am very proud of!

Currently I am on spring break and will start school again on April 10th. I was selected to intern for another company with their product development team so I am excited to begin that internship when I start the quarter!

Here are some pictures from my 2nd and 3rd quarter!

3. I love, live, and breathe fashion.

4. I can be extremely sassy…just ask…anyone.

5. I am an only child soooo…this whole sharing a room with someone in college isn’t really my cup of tea.

6. My grandfather is the type of person I aspire to be.

7. Cupcakes. Cupcakes. Cupcakes. I love….and Pancakes (:

8. Quotes and music inspire me to write.

10. I don’t know what I would do without the support of my friends and family.
