Your Happiness

I think more than ever, I have been questioning the true meaning of happiness. In our world, people associate happiness with “things”. The problem with seeking joy from animate objects is that it never lasts. I am the happiest when I am in the present moment, not worrying about the future. I am the happiest when the people around me are happy and healthy. I am the happiest when I am inspired.

Colored Faux Fur

New York during this time of year has me questioning why on earth I live here. It can be so unbearably cold that finding a coat to shield you from mother natures cruel ways is very important. However, I don’t think you should have to sacrifice style to stay warm. Faux fur is a great way to stay warm and look stylish while prancing around the frigid city.

Buckled Romper

First post of 2016. Naturally, I have been reflecting on this past year as everyone sets resolutions for the upcoming one. 2015 was one of the most challenging years of my life. I overcame obstacles I never imaged I would, and become far more in tune with who I am along the way. Despite my challenges, I wouldn’t change it for the world. They made me who I am today, and far stronger than I ever was before.

Midnight Shimmer

This time of year is my absolute favorite for many reasons. Maybe I have a slight obsession with Christmas since I was born on Christmas Eve, delivered to my mother in a bright red stocking. If that didn’t ignite my Christmas spirit I don’t know what did! It baffles me how people get so stressed around the holidays. I notice a significant increase in road rage, which I find especially amusing. It’s supposed to be the happiest time of the year! Drink some spiked hot cocoa and chill out.

Denim on Denim

Denim on Denim: A look I can’t seem to get enough of. I also can’t get enough of burgundy these days, which is lovely because it is everywhere you look! Hey, I’m not complaining. My goal has been to adapt more color into my daily dress, and I think this is a good start. Baby steps.

Winter White

Who says you can’t wear all white in the winter? There are really no rules in the fashion industry, so break out your palest hues and hop on the winter white trend. As a fellow New Yorker, I love wearing all white in a crowd full of black, navy and grey. It instantly makes me feel fresh and clean.

Stay Dreaming

Lately I have been so hooked on scrolling through Tumblr. I think it is a beautiful outlet for self expression. There is just something about it that feels safe, where you can freely express your thoughts and feelings free of negativity…

Artist: Egon Schiele

Egon Schiele will always be my favorite artist. I fell in love with his ability to create confrontational portraits with his signature nervous and loose line work. This signature graphic style welcomes distorted figures and defies conventional norms of beauty, which is one of the many reasons he is my favorite artist. Personally, I find the average standards of beauty to be very boring. I love any artist or designer who goes beyond these contrived norms and makes the viewer feel something new, even if it is initial discomfort. To me, that is intriguing. As a leader of expressionism, his imagery is deeply psychological. There is much more that meets the eye.
