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 Brûlée", {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 😊

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:

🚉 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.
