Basically everything I am wearing is Urban Outfitters or Anthropologie (I get a great discount…) and the boots were from this random shoe store on 7th Ave.
I swear I am going to have an anxiety attack trying to figure out my outfit everyday…
It’s that time of year. Hat, glove, scarf weather. Today we will focus on gloves.
Gloves are tricky for me because of my iPhone which uses heat sensors on the screen as opposed to pressure, so my fingertips need to be easily accessible.
These are some of my favorite gloves of the season, hopefully I can face the brisk New York weather with a few pairs of these on my hands.
I am a huge fan of those wildly expensive fashion coffee table books. For Christmas last year I received In Vogue which I had been longing after for months. It is basically a biography of the fashion bible complete with stunning images, models galore, and one of the most interesting history lessons I have ever received.
A few weeks ago I found Extreme Beauty in Vogue at Anthropologie massively on sale for about $8 with tax. I was so excited that I pulled it out on the subway ride back to my apartment and promptly finished the whole thing. The photographs in this book, especially Irving Penn’s were some of the most visually interesting, thought provoking, and beautiful I have ever seen. Penn was a true genius of the art world and his work in Vogue I believe truly elevated the magazine to what it has become today.
I am a dress girl. I will always pick a skirt or a dress over a pair of stiff boring jeans any day. And Anthropologie has the most. for lack of a better word, adorable dresses for the Fall. A Fall dress is on a whole other planet from a Summer dress. It has to be functional and practical for the various types of weather that can occur in a day, or in New York, even an hour.
These are my absolute favorite Fall dresses from the ever whimsical and charming Anthropologie:
Your week in day in great detail.
I’ll admit, I have been dreading these final 30 Day Challenge posts. My week in great detail? My week really isn’t that fascinating, but I suppose I could try to be creative and make it sound fun and interesting.
I think since today is Monday, I should do my past week, which also happened to be my last week at both FIT and Elle for a few months.
Monday, May 17: I didn’t have class until 5 pm, where I only had to hand in my final paper, so this was a lazy Monday, the best kind. I decided to go for a run in the gym to relax before my week of stress and studying. After, I handed in my paper to my Strategic Planning teacher, he decided to read it then and there while I watched nervously. He said that he was very impressed by it, garnering my paper an A. Later I began studying for my Psychopathology final exam which would take place Tuesday at 6:30 pm. Then I was in my friends fashion show dressed up like a “Sleeping Beauty” which was pretty fun and then I went out with another friend for sushi. This is where I discovered sweet potato tempura rolls, a new obsession of mine.
Tuesday: I had my Workshop in Direct Marketing presentation at 9:30 am. It was a 30 min presentation in front of a panel of esteemed judges, who were not afraid to interrupt the presentation to ask questions and comment. Then at 1 pm my photographer godfather, William Heuberger, took a picture of some of my friends and I for a project he is doing on FIT students. After this I had to run to a lunch for new student tour guides, where I managed to eat a lot of lunch. Directly after this I had my last Creative Fashion Presentations class, where we looked at pictures and critiqued our amazing fashion show that we put on last Tuesday, which went flawlessly. Then, since I couldn’t focus on studying for my exam, I went to the gym for about 40 minutes. My Psychopathology exam began at 6:30 pm and I was finished by 6:38 pm. It was 25 multiple choice questions, and I studied for hours so I was not happy that it only took me eight minutes. I studied for my morning exams for a few hours then paused to watch Glee and The City (only because they film it at Elle and I might have a cameo on it).
Wednesday: In the morning I had my Biology final exam, which was fairly easy, and then I had my Journalism final exam about an hour after it. Since I was done with my freshman year at FIT I just lounged around the dorm reading magazines and catching up on tv that I had missed over the past few weeks. That night my three roommates and I went out to dinner, as our last night together, at Serendipity, a.k.a. one of my favorite places in New York.
Thursday: I had my second to last day at Elle today and had to train new interns for the fashion closet. It was a busy day but so much fun. I was really sad that the next day was my last.
Friday: My last day at Elle was bittersweet because I was obviously sad to leave, but it was such an amazing experience and I was happy to be able to go home for a few months to relax. I met one of my roommates after work to go shopping in Herald Square and then we had amazing thin crust pizza and frozen yogurt. That night, we packed for a few hours then had a mini Friends marathon.
Saturday: One of my roommates moved out early Saturday, so I was up since 9 am. Then after cleaning my room, packing and showering my mother and brother arrived to move me out. It was a bit stressful, but we were able to go to Whole Foods to pick up some of my favorite foods that I can’t get in Connecticut and we bought 30 bagels from Brooklyn Bagels, which I had the pleasure of holding on my lap for the 2 hour car ride home. Needless to say I ate one.
Sunday: Sunday was a leisurely day consisting of bagels and CBS Sunday Morning. Then my best friend came over and we attempted unpacking my things, which resulted in getting two of my 12 bags unpacked. Then we decided we are going to repaint my room this summer and rearrange it. I also discovered that I have eclectic taste when it comes to room decor and that I want my room to look like a Parisian Anthropologie catalog. I ate two dinners this night, one from my favorite Chinese restaurant and the other at my friends house, which consisted of homemade pesto pasta and salad. Then I finished the night with my first trip to Dairy Queen of the summer and my new book The Girl who Played with Fire, by Steig Larsson.
So that is basically my week in great detail. I hope it was interesting and gave a sliver of insight into my life, my Type A personality, love of food and, of course, fashion.
