Homework blues

Hi all, I apologize for not keeping up with my posts. After I broke my wrist I had to drop my dance classes (i’m a dance major) and add more academic classes (yuck). Safe to say I have been very busy catching up in all of my classes and unfortunately my blog gets the short end of the stick. Hopefully this weekend I will have a bit more free time! Chocolate is what is getting me through the day. I’m going to be travelling in the next few weeks so make sure to check the blog for exciting photos. Also I will soon be making a schedule of when I will be posting on my blog for those of you that enjoy to follow along! Talk to you soon!

What goes with plaster?

Unfortunately over the weekend during a dance audition I broke my wrist. I somehow managed to get through my entire childhood without breaking any bones and now that I’m in college I broke two at once.Β I currently have a splint that goes over my elbow and hopefully in two weeks (fingers crossed) I will get a shorter cast. Bedsides the hassle of having a broken limb my biggest problem has been what to wear. One of my biggest pet peeves is when the sleeves of tops get stretched out. With such a big cast nothing fits over my arm. So far I’ve found one of my sweatshirts and t shirts fit. Another problem I’ve found is I can’t button pants. I guess it’s yoga pants and leggings for me for the next month for me. Now I usually wouldn’t mind dressing casual but there are a few events in the next few weeks where I a already know I need dress up. This Sunday I have an interview andlet me tell you, I’m stressed out. Not only for the interview part but also what to wear. I believe that dressing the part is very important. Regardless of what people say first impressions always count. I’m praying that something professional will fit over my lovely plaster accessory. Wish me luck!

FASHION WEEK

So for anyone who doesn’t know yesterday I was fortunate enough to attend Mercedes Benz Fashion week at Lincoln Center. All the hype about fashion week… it’s real. Fashion week was AMAZING! I saw the Tadashi Show on February sixth at two p.m. My cousin works for Tadashi Β and got my friend and me Β tickets.

I ended up wearing black j crew winnie pants with black suede wedge pumps, a black sheer blouse with a collar grey blazer from j crew and a pearl necklace also from j crew.

The tent was filled with such interesting people. There were the socialites, editors, fashion guru’s and writers. Then there were the two college freshmen in the back with their jaws on the ground. My friend Julie and I could barely contain our excitement. As sophisticated and calm as we tried to appear we couldn’t hide Β the huge grins on our faces.We also made sure to photograph every moment.

The show was spectacular. It started with more youthful dresses and bit by bit more and more elegant dresses appeared on the runway. All of the dresses were breathtaking. There were a few that really stood out to me. One was a long black gown with a nude back that was stunning on the runway. Here are some photos from the BEST. DAY. EVER.
