Philadelphia Fashion Week - Macy's Front Row

Monday, September 26, 2016


Hey, lovelies! First off, I apologize for my infrequent posting. I had to abandon my usual schedule because I have had a ton of school work and top top it off, my laptop was malfunctioning and I had to send it in for repair, so I am computerless for 5 business days...(currently borrowing my brother's). I feel like I lost a limb.

Anyways, last week was Philadelphia Fashion Week and I was lucky enough to be invited the Philadelphia Incubator Show at Macy's. I got a preview of Macy's latest ready-to-wear styles. This was pretty neat because after the show, the audience was able to shop the runway pieces right away. As far as fall trends, there was a lot of shades of deep red and it was all about the accessories.




We also got to see a preview of upcoming spring pieces from the current class of Philadelphia Fashion Incubator designers. This is a non-profit collaboration between the City of Philadelphia, Macy's, and the Center City district where they take local fashion designers and work with them for 1 year to help build their brand by offering a variety of resources, workspace, and mentoring. Hands down, my favorite were the designs from Milano Di Rouge a beautiful collection of men and women street wear styles.






Lastly, they brought out Mah-Jing Wong, a previous Project Runway contestant, with stunning denim pieces. Absolutely in love with this graphic tee!


This was such a lovely experience and it makes me so happy to see such wonderful talent coming from Philadelphia. Our city is definitely rising to the top of the fashion game and I am glad to be here in the midst of it!

I'm in a Magazine!?

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Hey, lovelies! A couple of weeks ago I was a interviewed for a new company, Model Citizen, a creator platform and magazine. Just recently introduced in June, Model Citizen is the newest place to find talent. Owners, James Panarettos and Macky Suson, incepted MC after they witnessed a beautiful model crying for not landing a job, but the two of them could see her huge potential. This inspired them to create a place where talent, big or small, could be recognized because the fashion industry should be a collective community. Their online magazine recognizes a plethora of models, designers, photographers, and bloggers and honestly, looking at the faces in the latest September issue really makes me question how I made it in?!

Anyways, if you're interested in reading the issue, check out the digital issue here and find my interview on page 196! Let me know what you think!

Wishlist #6: Lazy Love

Wednesday, September 14, 2016
*Click product to shop it!*

Happy Wednesday, lovelies! Maybe it is because I do not have to be physically in school on hump days (cheers for 1 online class), but I have been obsessing over sleepwear and loungewear lately. I am usually the type to wear an old t-shirt to sleep, however there is something so romantic, Parisian, and dreamy about wearing a nice set of pajamas -- especially for lazy Sundays.

Divided We Stand

Monday, September 12, 2016







Happy Monday, lovelies! Let me tell you a quick story about this t-shirt. As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be the perfect Christmas gift for my boyfriend given the upfront saying, eagle graphic and his genuine love of the Fuct brand. However, it's a size small and he usually wears a medium and so here we are. He ended up giving it back to me and I swear to you I never meant for this to happen. And can  I just say this one shirt sums up my entire feeling about this upcoming presidential election? Not to bring politics in but I think we are pretty much #fuct.

On a side note, is anyone going to the Bloglovin' H&M Awards tonight in NYC?! I won tickets from H&M to attend but unfortunately the event starts at 9PM and not ideal for my commute from Philadelphia and my class tomorrow morning. I am so bummed I had to pass up the opportunity, but if any of my followers are going let me know. I would love to hear about how it was and sulk about what I missed (jk kinda). Anyways, let's have a good week! :)
