H&M FASHION CONSCIOUS - 4/9/14

OMG have you seen these pieces? The embroidery is fabulous on these pieces. They are so elegant and beautiful. I'm not sure if they are only available online, I didn't really see the details about it but they are quite expensive. If I had an event to go to I'd totally buy the last three pieces. Just drooling over how beautiful they are. Below are photos of my favorite items.

Chasing the Sun | Part I


I’m an old soul and feel... as though I  never stop chasing. 
From where I stand, the world seems so... distant.. and... destructive.
But I thrived and i was formed from this..  this destroyed and scattered debris...
Certain phases in my life make me feel. so. small.
But just know.. that when the sun goes down. it’s when I shine the brightest.

BANGER

Every look she wears could be a hit. Every video she makes could be viral. Every blog she write could catch your attention. But these aren't enough to be big. She struts her stuff every day and night to be seen beyond the screen of few. She yearns to reach the many. She tries to be unconventional, ordinary, whimsical, and charming. But the days continue to pass as she still goes unnoticed. She's been told she looks like Miley Cyrus but that doesn't get her anywhere. Take off the hat. Take of the heels. Take off the sunglasses. She's empty. She's your canvas. Everything she does can be big. You can be big. We are all just skin and bones, but it's our actions that make us human. Make your next move banging.

El Paseo Fashion Week 2014


I've always wanted to go to a fashion show and this was one of the few I was able to actually buy tickets to go to. It's very interesting to see young minds and their designs. I used to think my calling was fashion design but it occurred to me later that I like wearing clothes more than I like designing them and putting pieces together in an interesting way. I was quite impressed with a few of the designers but some of them didn't meet my expectations. I was not impressed by the fact that some of the pieces were not fitted or tailored to the models, so some of the garments were loosely wrapped around the models and looked tacky.




I got to walk a red carpet and someone took my picture and I have no idea where it went. If you find it let me know!
 The Runway!! What I would do to walk a runway at least once!
The garden/lounge area. The lights were so pretty and colorful. I like this picture a lot because the camera captured the lights perfectly. If the lights were focused I don't think it would have captured the moment as well as it did.


I was definitely surprised to see younger kids there (ages 7-10) but at the same time wasn't. They could have been younger siblings of the designers but they were running around the grounds prior to the show. I was into the food! Wish I grabbed more and got to go to more days to experience the different chefs throughout the week. Good food is always a highlight for me.
Checking out the food,

Maybe I'll go to a different event next year for El Paseo Fashion Week. Or I'll get invited to New York, Paris, London, or Milan. A girl can dream right?

I don't what to take away the light, I'd rather be the one to glow.



She's there throughout the day but she glows brighter in the night when the sun isn't there to outshine her. When she glows, it comes from within. You can see the illumination around her body and everywhere she steps she leaves a trail behind with flecks of color and bright glowing lights.
