trees, sheep, and lots of polka dots.

My husband, Charlie, recently went to Washington DC for a work trip 
and while he was there he wandered around some of the high fashion stores 
like Dior, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, etc.

& I jokingly said "Aww, shopping for a gift for me?! You shouldn't have" 
and he said "I wish"

But he did get me a gift,
 when I saw the white box on the counter he said, "Well it isn't designer".

It was so much better. 
It is this gem tree from a museum he visited, 
I am in love with it, especially the rose gold wire.

It is perfect on our fireplace mantel:

I really do think it finishes off our mantel,
it  has come a longggg way!

I love this sweater,
it also has trees, little houses, and sheep.
Layer it up with lots of polka dots!




What I Wore: glasses- c/o Firmoo  lips- Milani Moisture Lock Oil Infused Lip Treatment, sweater- vintage, tank- Walmart, pants- Gap, flats- Forman Mills




Happy to have my hubby back and we celebrated at Doslot House,
I have been craving the Dduk Bok Ki since the last time we went,
so good!

it's a red lipstick kind of day.

When I first saw this candle on Lipstickandlace91 on Instagram, I knew I need it!
I love that it says "IT'S A RED LIPSTICK KIND OF DAY"
but a pink candle =)

I love it!

I knew that after it was burned out I would repurpose it to hold all my red lippies!
This is how I do it:
*If you have any residual glue from the wick or bottom labels,
use a little GooGone on a paper towel to rub it off.
 I didn't have to do it for this candle, this was an easy one!

I love the candle even more as a repurposed lipstick holder!

Perfect!

Inspiration to wear my favorite red lipstick,
Vincent Longo "Americana" because it is a red lipstick kind of day,
and everyday is a leopard kind of day ๐Ÿ’„




 What I Wore: glasses- c/o Faniel via 10/10 Optics, lips- Vincent Longo "Americana", necklace- Charming Charlie's, top- thrifted, blazer- Target, pants- Old Navy, flats- Forever 21, bag- vintage Coach {thrifted}



This is also the last time I am wearing these Forever 21 studded flats,
I have loved them since college when I bought them on a whim for a sorority event,
but they are falling apart and it is time to let go.
RIP

I am loving this evil eye ring that I picked up from The Style Shop at FIT

I loved this inspiration that Selena Thrifty shared on Facebook:

A great hump day reminder!

Fuzzy Wuzzy: I would wear this fur cardigan to my "Fibers, Fabrics and Fur" lesson...


I am absolutely obsessed with this piece from RoadSideline Arts,
I am definitely going to need one of these, this is my life motto.

Okay, disclaimer:
I was not aware that it was the "Fibers, Fabrics and Fur" lesson
in my "Intro to the Fashion Business" class...
But it sure looked like I was trying to be a tactile example...




What I Wore: glasses- Faniel via 10/10 Optics, lips- Gerard Cosmetics "1995" and NYX Butter Gloss in "Creme Brรปlรฉe", {I am loving this lip combo!} necklace- Bead for Life, top- Primark, cardigan- Kensie {via Costco, was less than $7, I am obsessed!}, jeans- Seven {thrifted}, booties- Minnetonka, bag- vintage Coach {thrifted}




I wanted to share some Science of Style fashion school notes
 from my experience thus far at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC!
{See fashion school orientation: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3}

Since orientation, I have been doing SO MUCH READING:

But my fashion school books are so pretty that they could be coffee table books:

& I have  been using my "Whoa, Wait" collection tags as book marks
and they are making me happy!

This book is full of inspiration:

"Fashion is instant language"

If there was ever a doubt that I am in the right place,
look at this model in the textbook,
yup, leopard galore.

We talk a lot about the psychology that drives people to make purchase decisions,
and where people fall on the "fashion adaptation" scale.

Our textbook describes "Fashionistas" as having an armor that gives them self-assurance,
and we discuss the need that humans have an inner struggle
to balance individuality and the need to belong.
Learning about the choices people make to express themselves through their clothing
and the business behind it all is so interesting.

& I seem to have a knack for it ๐Ÿ˜Š

I have been surprised how much science is involved in fashion,
this is the Biodesign Challenge award that is a multi-school contest and was won by students at FIT for a sustainable alternative for mainstream textiles created from a yarn from bacteria and fungi.
The trophy was created by a UK artist Luke Jerram,
and it is a symbolic intersection of art, design and biology.

I love checking out all the exhibits that FIT has on display throughout campus,
I loved this leather exhibit and was so impressed by all the shoes on display,
but I really loved these twisty loafers, I would love to rock those!

Every day in NYC I am excited and inspired,
I loved this Instagram post from emmerteyewear
& it describes how I feel about this experience:


๐Ÿš‰ Time to hit the dusty road back to NJ!

Still obsessed with this mani
base: KL Polish "Caramello" & top coat: Zoya "18K Gold Gilty Pleasures"
Almost the same color as the the yellow on escalators, and "Watch the Gap" paint,
love it.
