True Religion

I lied! I was able to squeeze in a quick photoshoot of what I wore to work today before rushing off to model/designer fittings for Envision. I sometimes think my best outfits are conceptualized during groggy mornings before work when I am hastily trying to throw together something appropriate with a little bit of a punch for good measure. I'm wearing some newly acquired pieces gifted by some of my besties - the vest from Mel (perfect for adding a little interest to any outfit) & the pumps from Stephy (going to pair these with EVERYTHING <3). These were taken by my friend Dan at Cathedral Hill, isn't it beautiful here? Enjoy! xxo.

PS. I'm totally struggling with my hair, my scarf and trying not to get lipstick on my face - so windy today!

Envision Artopia

Hi Everyone! Sorry I missed a week of posting, I took a last minute trip out to NYC over the weekend. By last minute, I mean like I only knew I was going the same morning that I left. Unfortunately, didn't really get to attend any FNO/NYFW events but I did some major damage in SoHo & ate some really delicious food (craving some Bonchon Chicken as I type). Anyhow, I probably won't have time for any posts this week either, because I'll be prepping for this (see below) with my team - Secrets Fashion Agency. It will be a slew of nonstop styling/prepping for the next couple days - join us this Friday if you can :)

something new, something old, something borrowed

Received my new Canon 50 mm f/1.8 camera lens in the mail (and some other things I will unveil shortly) and I just couldn't wait to test them out; that would probably explain my fresh-out-of-the-shower hair. I'm wearing an old beaded vest I got in one of my one-day shopping excursions to Chicago with the bestie & a dress I borrowed from my cousin in Vegas and never quite returned. I'm totally loving how the quality of the photos just went up a couple notches, hope you liketh them as much as i do. PS. I didn't forget my pants today, I'm totally wearing short shorts underneath. :)


dress/tunic: F21 (borrowed from Mak), beaded vest: Akira Chicago, scarf: UO, platform maryjanes: F21, leather satchel: vintage Coach, accessories: J.Crew, Nordstrom, Alex & Ani, H&M, Anne Klein & Swiss Army (watches), random FL vendor, Kohl's (all gifted)
