Baby Its Cold Outside.....

NYC is a winter wonderland, it started last night...we had a snow day 6 hour lab class!I was sleeping when my friend Sara pulled me out of bed to see the snow, we didn't go to bed until 3 am playing & frolicking in the snow. We had a huge snowball fight, then ran upstairs into our friends room hanging out the window while the boys tried to throw snowballs at us. It was like out of a movie, hysterical. Ashley Olsen lives on my block, we saw her driver bring her home ,..but they went around the block a few times because me and Sara chased the car and yelled " Ashhlleeyyy!!" - whoopps! 

I have the lucky amazing opportunity to meet Betsy Hilfiger & tour Tommy Hilfiger headquarters in a few weeks. I'm so so so excited...counting down the seconds!
keep your eye open my style guru bio is going up on any day now!

Loves it!

Lessons We Can All Learn From Coco Chanel

A girl should be two things: Classy & Fabulous.

Pearls will set you free

Identify with the most glamorous member of your family

The most courageous act is still to think for yourself.Aloud.

Throw yourself into your work

Rename the people who humiliated you.

Blame all your unhappiness on love.

Find a way to be generous.

Count your blessings.

Happy to hear that others think my headband Line has a real chance! The casting call is on March 25th, I still have alot of gluing, tying,pinning, draping,tacking to do but I'm super excited! I have my samples done, I know what direction and theme of the collection I want to stick with.
I finally named my headbands..they're on my facebook page. If you haven't had a headband named after you don't fret..there are still others in development! 

I've been doing some fashion illustrations the last few days forgot how much I missed these..test drove a new set of pens ,oh how I love the smell of new art supplies...I can do just as much damage at a art supply store than Lilly Pulitzer or Bloomingdale's!

Off to pack and clean this shitshow of a room...heading back to Manhattan tomorrow! 

Still working on my first assignment for
So excited to be the new style contributor for the Parson's Page...So now I guess that means I'm a style guru? I like that , maybe I should get that put on business cards or has a ring.
It always breaks my heart to leave all my purses behind...I know, I know as if thats the worst thing I should go through, but still...

Cheers To Round Two!

You Can Take The Girl Out Of The City, But You Can't know the rest

 Like Foundation threw up ...
 New inspiration/ Mood board ( Note my Betsey Johnson autograph! LOVE!)
 My dream book...from first semester at Parsons

I'm returning to NYC Saturday...You can take the girl out of the city , but you can't take the city out of the girl! I miss Manhattan & need to get back to the craziness, if you can believe it...If I'm not busy or creating I go crazy.

Cheers to Foundation( Hell ): Round Two!
