Sunday Blues: June 23, 2013

I know I have neglected my blog for quite some time...and I feel awful.  If you would like to hear my explanation for my absence, read below, otherwise just skip to the links and enjoy!

Basically I have been very busy trying to finish up a few classes- and that has taken up the bulk of my time.  In my remaining time I have been reading fashion blogs and various magazines with friends, but have somehow neglected my dear blog.  Anyway, onto the links:

  • This week we are in Milan for Men's fashion week.  I am cautiously interested in a menswear inspiration for fall, so I have been paying a little bit of attention-plus the models don't make it BORING...  Read this to get the latest updates.
  • It is kind of hard to ignore the Kardashians unless you live under a rock or don't have wifi.  You have to give Kim props for actually going for a name that doesn't start with a K.  But can you blame her?  The family monogrammed towels would read K.K.K.  Read all about North West here.
  • I remember being pretty young and watching a very short story on the news about Paris Hilton getting arrested for something.  It was like a car accident that I couldn't look away from, and before I could do anything, my parents turned the T.V. off.  Now Paris Hilton's home is in the movie "The Bling Ring" and here are pictures of her at home. I want her dogs.
  • One of my favorite non-fashion bloggers, The Everywhereist was interviewed by BBC.  Here it is.
  • All I can say is YAY!

¤ The Bracelet ¤

It is funny how people are drawn to things- like that dress that you never wear but still keep in your closet.

A while back when I was looking at bracelets I was drawn to a specific one.  It wasn't exactly my traditional style, but it would soon become my go-to piece of jewelry.

As I became inspired by bohemian fashion, I went back to that bracelet, and it is now a staple in a lot of my outfits.

¤ Zach Sobiech ¤

A few months ago, I found Zach Sobiech's song. "Clouds," on Youtube.

On May 20, he died.

I just found out about his untimely death today--I had been meaning to set up a Google alert, but I never did.  Zach was able to touch so many people and really make a statement about not only cancer, but saying goodbye.

I know that this post is long overdue, but I just wanted to share Zach's story.

Here are some links that do the story more justice than I can.

Sunday Blues: June 9, 2013

Summer weekends seem so much better than other weekends.  (I am not really sure how it feels that way...)I am off to enjoy the day, but here are some links that I thought were interesting.

  1. I never used to call myself a DIY kind of girl, but throughout the past few years, I have gotten into this kind of stuff.  Here, you can learn how to make your own nail polish splattered purse.  It is very Carrie in The Carrie Diaries.
  2. Have I ever said how much I love RookieMag?  In case you didn't know that about me, I have two links here for you.  One is about wearing retro bathing suits!
  3. I think this is a sweet story
  4. The science of pick pocketing...Always interesting.
  5. After reading this post by the Everywhereist, I can't help but think that blogging about something instead of taking action to solve the world's problems.  Then I remembered that the whole point of my blog is using fashion to not only express yourself, but to inspire change.

Fancy Pants

There are just some days in the summer that are not sticky hot, and brightly colored pants are acceptable.  Today was one of those days for me, and I wore what are quickly becoming one of my favorite pairs of pants.  Traditionally, I have not been one for stand out patterns, but lately, I have been slowly venturing into what I used to think was clown territory.  I still have not built up the courage to wear pattern on pattern, but who knows?  Maybe I will one day...

Outfit: Shirt: GAP Pants: Forever 21  Shoes:  Thrift store find
