Inspiration for Being in the Fashion Industry:

I always think back to when I was little and what sparked this interest in this industry. I always remember drawing clothes at church, and making designs of what I thought would look good at my next Christmas concert or next sleepover. I always had to make sure the things I wore to school or events were fashionable, and it would really iritate me when someone would go out and buy the same thing I had. I mean i would get like ANGRY, when I saw someone had copied my sweater. haha. Now I think I would just be flattered.. But as I got older I started reading more magazines and watching what celebrities but most of all i was most drawn to the era of the 60's and 70's... but especially the 60's. Their was some reason to their rhyme in their clothing unlike the 70's, there were just a lot of free spirits and lots of tie dye :) Which is also cool.
I started researching their clothing, and makeup, hair styles, everything because I was so fascinated. I wanted to magically tranform my warddrobe to look just like theirs.
These were some of my favorite pictures I always had as my computer background or posted in my school binders: .......

TWIGGY of course....

Brigitte Bardot:

Edie Sedgwick: My favorite ...

I see alot of things in these photos that has already come back or is coming back, which kind of funny and exciting at the same time.
Like oxfords, large buttoned pea coats, high waisted shorts, rosaries, fringe boots, and so much more.

But here are 5 more fav's of the moment:

Sparkly Pocket shirt: Kaitlyn clothing -- $29.90


Elizabeth and James Blazer: On sale for $474! practically free.. :)


Glass ring found on: Etsy: at Studio Leanne's shop. $34.. She makes glass blown rings. I LOVE THIS ONE!

Navajo Wrap: Gap -- $69.50

I've been thinking alot about this idea of the "30 day remixing challenge".
I found it on this fashion blog.. She picked 30 items in her closet, and remixed them every day for a new look. Then she would post pictures each day of the outfit she made.. The rules on no shopping for the whole month, and "shopping" in your own wardrobe with what you already have. Somehow I feel like I wouldn't last because I have such a huge variety of things, I think I would get bored.. any thoughts??
Anyways, Here are a few more things I've had my eye on lately!

I love the thought of shopping in my own closet for once, I love doing that in other people's closet's, or going to thrift stores feeling like you are in your grandmother's old closet, but for some reason I dont enjoy it as much with my own closet. Such is life I guess!
Who's in favor of my remixer challenge?? (kind of scared for a response ;) )

So I have been severely neglecting my blog.. So to start the start of my new blogging trend, I decided to post something simple. Just five things right now that I LOVE this season....

5 FAV's FOR FALL! :)

Onesie! As weird as it may seem, It is actually very functional, and classy. A great way to tuck in a classic shirt without the hassle. Except maybe when you have to go to the bathroom. This would be super cute tucked into black pants, with a oversized cardigan. Or paired with jeans, and a fun black/or colored leather jacket. $30

Sequins Blazer -- Love the way this is paired just with a white T, and jeans. It looks elegant but casual. $27.

Baggy Sweaters. I love feeling cozy in the fall, and baggy sweaters are always my go to tops. They look fun with skinnys, jeggings, and i love wearing them with really large necklaces.
Paired with boots is my favorite. $24
Oxfords! I love these in any color or print. I think they are so cute with skinny jeans, leggings and fun dresses. They are easy way to "urbanize" your outfit quickly. Love 'em. -- $69

Marc Jacobs Boho Bag - $158

Hope you enjoy these selections, more blog posts, and fashion advice to come :)

So, I decided to make a blog because I am sick of looking at everyone else's blog with their cute children, or cool stories, and i CANT COMMENT. How annoying. Either I am just oblivious on how to comment, or you have to actually have a blog to comment so I decided to make one.
I feel as though my title is rather appropriate. I'm not sure what I'm going to write about, but since I'm passionate about fashion that my be the center of a lot of my blog posts.

A little about myself,
I am 20 years old, and currently enrolled at ISU and majoring in Apparel Merchandising and Design. I just recently received a call that i got an internship at Nordstrom for the summer, which is probably the biggest thing accomplishment in my life thus far. This garuntees a job out of college and is huge for my resume.
I have an amazing boyfriend who lives in Nashville and who i wish i got to spend more time with.

I have 2 incredible sisters, that challenge me everyday, and who I look up to more than anyone else. 2 awesome parents who support every move I make in life. AND some pretty FABULOUS friends that i love spending time with on a regular basis.
My hobbys consists of eating chipotle, working a ton, and shopping online.
I love a good cup of coffee, a good pedicure, and reading a magazine.
One of my favorite things to do is babysit my little cousins. (shout out to my mini homies! willsky, darce, josh, aria, and now baby garrison) Cutest kids you will ever see in your life.
I would seriously pay my cousins to babysit them.. love 'em!

I work with Sophomore high school girls through Eastview Christian Church, and i love everyone of them. God has taught me so much through working with these girls, and I can't wait to see how much they grow over the years.

AND lastly, I am a horrible writer, so things will definately be misspelled, comas will definately be in the wrong places, and probably over-excessive.. (is that seriously even a word).. i think i got a C in every english class i took. (sorry im not koom-laddy dad, love ya ;) !) and i will probably use a lot of Run-ons.
Hope you enjoy my blog, and now i can finally comment! yes..
life is complete.
