"The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page."

I want to travel the world.  First stop, Paris, for obvious reasons.  I want to people watch while sitting outside a quaint little Parisian cafe, be inspired by the art and architecture, and shop

This girl, Louise was featured in Teen Vogue and she lives in Paris.  I found these photos on her lookbook and I love all of her looks.  I feel like she epitomizes Parisian style.

The weather is here, wish you were beautiful.

Sweater-Forever 21; Shorts-I don't remember

Hello from Ocean City. (:  My mom, sister, cousins, aunts, uncle, and I  are staying at my great aunt's town house by the beach.  It's a very full house.  My uncle and cousin just made us burgers and hot dogs, but had to throw away half of the hot dogs when they fell into something that my cousin identified as rabbit poo.  Hehe, anyways now I'm relaxing outside on the balcony by myself.  The weather is so beautiful!

Here are some more pictures that I took;
My cousins Sara and Rafi, fishing.

The waves at the beach were really big.
Sara, boogie boarding (:
The dock.

Rana, fishing.
My sister, Amanda and I.

"She wore that dress like it was a Saturday,"

Vest: Charlotte Russe; Dress:H & M?  I can't really remember; Sandals: Wildpair; Sunglasses: Heritage

On Saturday I went to my grandparents' house for my granddad's 70th birthday(:  My sister and my cousins and I decided to go for a walk to a nearby park and my sister took these pictures of me.  This vest was originally a long sleeve, cropped jacket but I couldn't find anything to wear it with, so I cut the sleeves off.  I also found a piece of scrap cloth trimming in my mom's jewelry box and tied it to my wrist.

That's about it for today..

Top: Old Navy; Skirt: Forever 21; Necklace: Forever 21; Flats:Target

I love this skirt.  I originally bought it for an English project.  We had to teach  our class dance steps from the 1920s so we all dressed the part.  This skirt was the most 20s-ish thing I could find.

There's a big storm coming so although I took these photos a while ago, I thought it'd be appropriate to post them tonight.  The rain on the windshield of my mom's car made everything outside look like a watercolor painting.  

With the massive amount of wind and rain we are supposed to be getting, I'm spending the night at home.  I'm also pretty tired too, from my busy week.  Today was my last day at LIM :( I had two totally different experiences the two weeks that I was there and I absolutely loved it.  Today I went early and watched the fashion show that the Fashion Show Production class put on.  I really want to take that class.  Watching the show made me realize how much I really love fashion and how badly I wish to be a part of this industry.

These are projects I completed during my Visual Display and Merchandising class.  I also started a fashion journal and made a shadow box.

I think I'm going to try to get some sewing done tonight...

Oh, Versace ♥

I love Versace's 5th Avenue window display.  They've managed to do neon without looking tacky.  The store, overall, is gorgeous.

Top: Garage
Shorts:  I can't remember...
Scarf: Forever 21
Sandals: Aldo

     I deleted all the good/not blurry photos of this outfit by accident D:  But..I decided to post it anyway.  My dog Brownie was lurking around while I was taking these pictures, Hehe (:
The top is my sister's and you probably can't tell from these pictures but it has really pretty embroidery at the top.
     Anyways tomorrow is the first day of my second class at LIM, Visual Display and Merchandising.  My friend is also taking a class this week so I won't have to commute alone (:

Overdue Outfit Post

Skirt: H + M
Sandals: Wildpair

Hi!  Sorry about the poor quality pictures.  I'm not good at planning ahead.  I normally end up taking a few quick pictures at night when I get home when doing an outfit post crosses my mind.  I wore this outfit to my friend, Kristen's graduation party about a week and a half ago but I haven't gotten a chance to post it :x  I've been in Wildwood for a dance competition and then on Monday  I started my classes at LIM! :)  I'm taking a class called Fashion Magazines and I really like it.  I'm making my own magazine.  It's called Sweet Pea and it is a young girl's first fashion magazine.  I'm excited to see how it comes out.  Taking this class makes me realize that I really like this part of the Fashion industry because I love writing and all other creative aspects that go into making a magazine.  I can definitely see myself working at a fashion magazine when I'm older.
LIM is really nice too!  FIT may be a school that is just as good, if not better but it's not as nice as LIM.  LIM is just has more appealing surroundings and it's a private school as opposed to FIT, which is public.

My Guilty Pleasure

Good morning (:
So, I have to admit that I love Pretty Little Liars.  I've read the books and now I've been watching the series every Tuesday.  Of course the books are better but I've downloaded quite a few songs that I heard on the show. 

These are the only two songs I could find to post.  I LOVE the lyrics to Jack and Jill.
Here are the titles of some more songs if you're interested.
  • More of You- MoZella
  • Hurry up and Choose- MoZella [This one wasn't on the show but I found it while looking for "More of You"]
  • Fresh Pair of Eyes- Brooke Wagoner
There's some more but you can find those on
Just type in Pretty Little Liars Music in the search box.

This is a random post but maybe I'll do an outfit post later.. <3
