February '14 • "Windy City"

Monday, February 24, 2014

New York in February is so far...pretty brutal. We've had snowstorms, freezing temperatures, and on the off days, somewhat warm (and I mean only 50 degrees...someone save this California girl) days. Today, I got the chance to hang out with my actress roommate and we went to get our nails done/ eat yummy food. Walking around wouldn't have been as bad if it weren't for the gusts of wind, but hey, I can't control that! I try to layer as much as possible because I easily feel overheated, practically running around the city to get to class. I am wearing my favorite boots from Zara which I got on sale for only $20 and I am also wearing my newly DIY-ed ripped jeans. I must have said this multiple times, but when it does warm up in the City, I will get out of my room and throw off that heavy winter coat!

February '14 • Happy Valentine's Day!

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Happy (early) Valentine's Day!
Here are cheesy pictures of me smiling and making a hand heart for you all!
I think I complain too much about my weather situations, but today was probably THE WORST. My Doc Martens sunk right into the inches and inches of snow on the ground, but I still had to go to my morning classes. So sad. Plus, the wind made it even worse and I was soaking wet by the time I made it back to my dorm. On a brighter note, tomorrow (Feb.14, actual Valentine's <3) is suppose to be sunny and warmer, so hopefully everyone can have a fuzzy, warm, loving day! <3 
I have a Valentine, but I think this day should be celebrating every kind of love, not just the romantic ones! Make sure to express that love and be thankful that you can spend time with the people you love.

I'll probably be munching on a whole lot of chocolate tomorrow haha!

February '14 • New Kicks and Something Special

Sunday, February 9, 2014

(Nike Free 5.0 and my HIGH FASHION, COLLEGE WALLET post on VV)

I'm considered as short--5 foot 2, to be exact--and my shoe closet is mostly made up of heels and platform boots. But attending school in the City means lots of walking and sometimes, my feet just need a break from all the extra height (and pain!). I bought these Nike Free 5.0 in black and I am in love! They go well with any outfit, whether it's a causal one or slightly more formal, and these are made for basic everyday walking more so than for exercising. I can't wait to snap a picture of an outfit with these shoes...Once the weather warms up and the concrete isn't as gross or wet, I'll definitely get on posting outfits! 

Besides my recent purchase, I have other exciting news and that is...my first post for my school's newspaper/fashion blog is up and running! I recently joined NYU's Washington Square News as a contributing writer and wrote the post on how to create a runway look for less on Violet Vision, WSN's fashion blog. I am thrilled to be a part of the WSN team and hopefully become staff later on, but for now, keep an eye out for more stories written by moi
