Last minute costumes from my closet have kind of become a Halloween tradition for me, lol.  In case you can’t tell, I’m a bouquet (inspiration here)! While I love dressing up, I absolutely hate wasteful Halloween costumes, so I always head to my closet first! I really love my bouquet costume and will probably improve it for this year, so get excited for a full tutorial next Halloween! In the meantime there… View Post

What I Wore / Get the Look-Oh Hello Fall

Hi Fall and HIIIIIEEEEE ya’ll!!! I’m so so happy to be back :). If you remember this year was kind of a benchmark of a year for me and with work being crazy I decided I needed to take some time off.

Dearest friends, if you’re into fashion or photography you probably heard New York Times’ prolific and legendary photographer Bill Cunningham passed away on Saturday. I occasionally saw Cunningham around town on his bike–he trolled midtown Manhattan for his subjects and he was a revered presence at every fashion week, Gatsby party, and many other NY events I attended. While Cunningham was the father of street fashion photography, what always struck me is the joy that he had on his face while taking pictures and… View Post
