BLUSH

Customized Strapless Mermaid Gown c/o Fame & Partners

There is nothing I love putting on more than a formal gown and going out to a fancy event! :) I was so elated when I had the chance to style one of the lovely gowns from Fame & Partners, a new evening wear brand that started up recently that I wish was around when I was desperately looking for a prom dress that I felt was unique enough for my taste, yet also fell under a reasonable price point. Fame & Partners has an amazing selection of designs, from more edgy or avant garde dresses to ones in a more classic and timeless style. You can even customize your dress by adding on or removing certain features to it, or having it made in the color of your choice.

The fit of the dress was great, especially considering my difficulty in finding strapless dresses that stay on properly on me! This particular dress is available for $250 which in my opinion is a bargain for a dress with such a long train, not to mention that for $250, it sure looked a lot better than some of the dresses that girls had purchased at my high school for $500 or more. As my new go to place for evening wear now, I highly suggest anyone looking for a formal dress to look through what they have, especially for those of you already looking for senior prom dresses (I know from experience how early you girls start looking)! You'll easily be the best dressed, and have done so without breaking your wallet! ;)

A special thank you to my boyfriend and little sister for helping me out so much with this photoshoot! <3

BACK TO SCHOOL W/ INTEL

Transparent Glasses c/o Kensie, Cashmere Sweater c/o Everlane, Grey Tank c/o Gypsy Warrior, Black Belt from Forever 21, Blue Plaid Shirt from Hollister, Grey Skirt c/o Gypsy Warrior, Navy Blue Backpack from H&M, Ankle Strap Heels from Ivanka Trump

Also featuring the Intel 2 in 1 Surface Pro 2!

Many things have happened since this past May. To sum it all up, I completed my first internship at Seventeen Magazine where I worked in the fashion closet, I cut my hair short, and now I'm back home in California again which means it's time to get back into blogging again! As school starts again soon for many of us, I thought it would be fitting to create a back to school themed look. One of my favorite pieces in this outfit is my cashmere sweater from Everlane, a brand that makes luxury basics and is always transparent about their production process and doesn't mark up their prices. For someone who has begun to value quantity over quality more, I am happy to support this company! As part of this BTS themed look, I also want to show you guys a new gadget I'm excited to use this year for school!

For this post, I had the chance to work with Intel to try out one of their Intel 2 in 1 tablet laptops, one of which is the Surface Pro 2. I'm pretty excited to use this for school because it's lightweight and much more convenient to carry around to class than my heavy laptop! I still prefer my larger laptop when working on Adobe programs of course, but the Surface Pro 2 is perfect for my seminar or lecture courses for taking notes. Which may I mention, you can do so by utilizing the magnetic, snap on keyboard or by using the pen to write directly on the tablet! It's also great if I want to work on updating my blog or responding to important emails in between class. If any of you guys are thinking of getting a new gadget for school this year, the 2 in 1 tablets are great for the lightweight design of a tablet while keeping the increased functionality of a laptop. I'll be updating you guys on how I've been using it once school starts too!

Thank you guys, as always, for reading and for continuing to support my blog! xo

FRESH PICKED


Yellow Statement Necklace c/o Topshop, Cutaway Crop Top c/o Topshop, White Skinny Jeans c/o Articles of Society, Thin White Sweater from Forever 21, Jeweled Transparent Clutch c/o Topshop, White High Tops from Converse

Two very important and exciting things happened this week: I finished my first year at Parsons this Monday and started my first internship at Seventeen Magazine on Tuesday!! I have learned so much this year at Parsons and cannot wait to delve into my fashion design studies come this fall. And I can't wait for the valuable skills and experiences I will have at Seventeen this summer! I'm a fashion intern so a lot of the work I do entails assisting in the fashion closet, which in case you are wondering is every bit as amazing and expansive as you would imagine it to be. I'll be sure to share more about my experience as the weeks go on though!

This outfit is my second look for the Chictopia x Topshop project I got a chance to take part in. I went to the Topshop store in NY last weekend and got to pick out a few new pieces: this statement necklace, the jeweled transparent clutch, and the cutaway crop top! I have really been loving all the jewelry and accessories that's been combining neon beads with classic gems. They are a welcome addition to my closet after wearing so much black this year. As I wanted the focus to be on my necklace and bag, I opted for an all white look and paired my Topshop crop top with a pair of classic, white skinny jeans, and comfy Converse high tops. Once you live in New York for a while, comfortable shoes really become a priority (if not, a requirement) when you know you'll be walking around the city a lot. I never thought it would happen, but I am definitely a huge fan of sneakers again :)
