Falling for Fringe

Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 12.04.38 PM

One trend I’m absolutely falling for this season is fringe! Jackets, tops, skirts, shorts, shoes, bags – go for fringe! Maybe not all at once, of course, but adding fringe is a great way to make a bold statement with your look. While shopping for fringe, I can’t make up my mind, I’m loving everything! A light jacket would be perfect for the transition to spring, while a fringed shoe screams edgy! I’ve narrowed down all my favorite fringed items in the gallery below. Not ready to go full on fringe yet? No worries, a handbag is a great way to subtly rock this fabulous trend.

Well, January managed to fly by! Now February is here and I’ve got a whole bunch of fabulous items on my wish list. I decided to skip last month’s wish list, because, really – I couldn’t wish for anything more after Christmas. And even though I am still enjoying all those goodies, I’ve got my eyes on a few new pieces to add to my wardrobe.

No matter what career you are pursuing or planning to pursue, I’m sure you’re all familiar with career day. I attended my first one the other day at my school, LIM College. In seven weeks (and counting)…I will graduate with a degree in Fashion Merchandising, and my excitement levels are through the roof. However, as excited as I am, I am not looking forward to the fierce battle of finding a job. Luckily, my school provides me with opportunities and resources to network in one the world’s fashion capitals, New York City.

EDC LV Outfits

Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas was one of the most incredible experiences! Between, the music, people, and fashion – it truly is something amazing to be a part of. Dressing for a festival is so much fun! Anything goes…seriously…there are no boundaries. I applaud everyone who takes eccentricity to another level at EDC or any music festival – that’s what adds to the enjoyment!

I admit, I stressed more about my outfits for EDC than finals. Bright, colorful, and comfy, were my major focus. When you’re dancing all night under the electric sky for 3 days, you definitely want to make sure your clothes and shoes are comfortable!
