Love & Pizza

img_55229 img_55203 img_5190 img_55242 img_5193

Love and some delicious New York pizza is all you need. My t-shirt says it all. If I had just these two things for the rest of my life, I think I’d be okay.

If wearing galactic inspired pants scares you, just bring them back down to earth with a casual tee. It softens the look and balances things out. I rocked this look during fashion week but don’t put it past me to rock a similar look every day of the week. Moving to NYC has really opened my eyes to more and more fashion and street style inspiration. No one cares what you wear. Everyone has such an open mind here. Wearing silly space pants on a Sunday is no big deal. I love it.

With Love,

September is in full swing. Can’t even believe October is around the corner. I am so happy to be writing about my first fall look of the year! (Even though the weather is still 80 degrees here in NYC.) I love FALL more than the average pumpkin spice latte drinking girl should. I mean who doesn’t? Layering for fall is where it’s at: Adding scarves, sweaters, cardigans, long sleeved tees…The whole sha-bang. It’s my favorite. Want to know what goes hand in hand with the Autumn season?

F-l-a-r-e-d  D-e-n-i-m.

Oh yes. My prayers were answered. I have FINALLY found the most perfect form fitting, shape hugging, bootylicious, stretchy flared jeans. Sweet baby Jesus, it took me years to find the perfect pair. I love the wash, the shape and the pockets on these pair and you will never believe that I paid under $30 for them. I had to get them altered because they were originally made for a giant but other than that, they fit like a dream. Free People was a having a sale on sale and that’s when I snagged these beauties. I’ve linked similar flared denim below. Get them now while they’re hot hot hot.

Dark NYFW Look

img_5061img_5073 img_5080 img_5050

Dark. Romantic. Bold. Mysterious. This sums up the captivating SS17 collection of Katie Gallagher. I absolutely loved being this grungy girl for the night, dressed up in a very haute couture inspired outfit. It was something completely out of my comfort zone, yet, not at all outside my comfort zone. I would dress up, ready for a runway show every single day if I could.

Supporting smaller designers is the way to go. They work so hard and it amazes me the amount of time and effort that goes into designing and following through with a runway show. Go her. For following her dreams and taking risks. SO INSPIRING.

About Katie Gallagher – Eclipse SS17
Secretive, unknown, mysterious, Black, the darkest color yet the color with no color at all, represents both full absorption and complete absence of light, evil and elegance. Constantly inspired by this hue that has no hue, Katie Gallagher’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection, Eclipse, is her third all-black collection, followed by last season’s all black collection, Veiled and her initial collection, S/S 2010, Veil.
Gallagher’s current monochromatic collection relies on textures and subtle details, highlighting her obsessions with gothic architecture, Harry Clarke illustrations and traditional Catholic rituals and symbols. She complements these heavy themes with lightweight fabrics and whimsical embroidery.
Through Eclipse, Gallagher combines Swiss Dot sheer jackets with delicate lace and pony fur, English tulle skirts and tops feature embroidered hearts, dots and crosses. Gallagher pairs gathered, twisted seams with grosgrain ribbons and silver zippers, defining her SS17 collection.

I had such a blast with my bestie, viewing the collection, meeting our Instagram friends for the first time. It was a magical night that ended in lots of laughs and new friends.

My Vanity Fair Photo Shoot Story

img_5048

img_50338 img_5025 img_50030 img_50337 img_5021

Hello.

There’s something about a sweet floral dress. This one is unbelievably affordable AND comfortable, priced under $35 and ready for your next girls night, date night and even wedding! I first saw this dress on my favorite Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristow (Not that I watch the Bachelor or anything) on one of her latest Instagram posts. She wore this darling off the shoulder number to her friends wedding and right then and there I knew I had to have it. I love it all: The colors, the breathable fabric, the cold shoulder detail. IT’S JUST GOOD.

Let’s chit chat about my Vanity Fair photo shoot for a second shall we? Yes, you read that correctly. Let’s start from the beginning. It was the very first day of fashion week, Wyatt and I were in Chelsea on his lunch break, just doing our own photo shoot for my blog, minding our own business when this guy comes up to us asking to take photos of me for Vanity Fair magazine! He never mentioned what edition it will be or when it will be published but I’m assuming it will featured on their Fashion Week Recap that will hopefully be out soon! Keep an eye out!

One moment your shopping for flowers in a beautiful body-con dress and the next your doing a photo shoot with Vanity Fair. That’s NYC for you.

As you’re reading this I am probably attending my very first New York Fashion Week fashion show. To be completely honest, I am going into this exciting and chic experience completely blind. I have no idea what to expect, what to do, and worst of all: WHAT TO WEAR. With all these mixed emotions about NYFW what stands out more than anything is how grateful I feel for this opportunity. You could say this was a dream of mine, to attend NYFW, and here we are. Finally.

I cannot wait to tell you more about NYFW once it’s over. I was invited to only a few shows this season, I think it’s all I can currently handle anyway but I’ll be sure to Snap and Instagram the entire time. With so much happening in my life at the moment (new job, new atmosphere) it all comes with growing pains: Uncertainty, strains in relationships, financial obligations etc. My brain is occupied to it’s absolute maximum capacity and I’m still deciding on whether or not that’s a good thing. When so much is going on, good or bad, I stick to what I know when it comes to keeping my look chic. I stay grounded with shift dresses. This one in particular is beyond comfortable while still remaining city chic.

With love,
