Here's to another Year: '2014'


HAPPY NEW YEARS: 2014 by painthead featuring modern home decor

A new year is approaching, more quickly then I would want, but why should I be afraid of a "New Year"? A new year to me means a new beginning. A fresh start for any ideas, and goals that were left behind in 2013. Or perhaps any dreams left abandon. I cannot complain at all about this past year(2013). If anything I feel this past year has brought me a few fashion adventures in which I am very thankful for. Adventures I will never forget. One adventure included two of the most awesome fashion shows: Betsey Johnson's and Anna Sui's Spring 2014 collections during New York Fashion Week.

Another fashionable adventure was meeting Dana Maxx during her "Made in NYC" fall/13' press release along side Ben Amun by Issac Manevitz. That same day I visited Polyvore's NYC office.
What a year. I like to reflect back through the year, however, I'm not one to sit and wallow at the things I did not do or should of done. I believe everyone is at a place in their lives because it's their timing to be there. I feel my timing will come, to be able to fully breathe and live in fashion. When will that time be? I'm not certain, but I know giving up will not make it happen. If you have a dream, go for it. Time to dust off those stilettos full of glitter and star dust.

Hey you….

Where have I been? I stated before I am working on a new layout for my tiny blogger. My goal for the new year is to have a new look. So why not blog until then? I guess I can, nothing really stopping me to blog. I'll just blame it on outside and how it gets dark to soon. It's going to be Christmas ALREADY again. Where does the time go? Is it me or once you get older time just flies by? Anyhow, I do love Christmas, it is my favorite time of the year. I'm not sure what colors I will use to decorate my tree, but having green and red is a must. Or maybe i'll leave it completely bare. Not sure why I would do such a thing, but that is exactly my point. I'll leave it bare because I can. But of course that won't happen. I'll make sure to post some pictures.

I'll leave you now with some more fashionable editorials. I've posted these before in my blog, but because I love this editorial so much I wanted to repost.

Couture Clash
W magainze: October 2013

Ever see a fashion editorial and wish you were a part of it? Well this "W" magazine spread from October 2013 does that to me. It's beautiful in every way. It's a modern day Marie Antoinette turned punk. I've been MIA for a few days, but not because i've abandoned my tiny blog, but because I am currently working on a new look for it stay tune. Until then enjoy the spread below ;)

"LOVE" it

"LOVE" it
How I adore my "LOVE" necklace. This lovely spin-off from LANVIN /Fall 2013 is truly lovely. I'm not a fan of knock offs at all nor do I support purchasing a fake designer handbag in the black market, but I saw this necklace while shopping at Joyce Lesile and I fell in "LOVE" with it. Close to the real thing, yet I am certain the real thing is beyond words. Until then i'll enjoy my tiny necklace and pour all my LOVE into it. Did you find anything lovely this weekend?

That Guy Josh

Once a upon a time in a world where music sounded the same, I had an opportuniy to "preview" an album from a new artist named Josh Groban. A self titled album was soon due for release in 2001 , and a simple preview would determine a loyal listener.  I pressed "play" and heard "Alejate", since then I've been a fan Grobanite. At first I thought he was a spanish singer, but as I continued to hear his music, he also sang in italian and english. Ahhhhh music to my ears.
His albums are the only ones I look forward to and purchase. I've seen him three times in concert and on November 3, 2013 he is coming to Philly. I have my tickets already and cannot wait to go.  Josh does not disappoint, his voice is truly beautiful, pure and rare. He is one of those artist that sound the same on CD and live, that's how prefect his voice is. And he is kinda groofy and fun during his concerts so he is full of entertainment. 

I wanted to pull a Kid President move and have Josh response to a tweet, if I ever make one, to see how I can score an interview, or go back stage like a totally gnarly grobanite, but I'd figure he'll have so many crazy people trying to get to him. So I will not tweet :( , maybe he'll tweet me, hahahahha ok ok just kidding. Instead I will go to the concert and enjoy it all.  One day i'll meet him. After all I did meet my John Hughes of Fashion, Betsey Johnson so anything is possible. What is your favorite Josh Groban song(s)?

Self Titled , 2001
"Closer" 2003
"Awake" 2006
"Noel" 2007
"Illuminations" 2010

Geometric Magic

I received a parcel from Persunmall, you might remember them from another post I did back in July.
What a way to continue into the fall with fun garmets. I adore this blouse, it reminds me of magic eye and if you stare at it any longer something will pop out at you. I already knew what I wanted to wear with it or should I say "other colors".  I knew I wanted pops of reds and orange somewhere and below
is the final result. Whenever you can stop by Persunmall and discover items no where else to be found. How would you style your Geometric pattern blouse?

Also I am loving the "POP" colored mascara from Rimmel. I got them at Rite Aid for $3.46 each.
They also carry purple and pink I believe or was it orange? Either way, get them while they are out.
