Francesca’s Fun Floral Display – Embrace the Creativity Around You

Happy May everyone!

I hope that you are having a great week so far. For an assignment for my Parsons x Teen Vogue fashion class, I had to take a shot of  window display at a retail store that I thought was pretty interesting.

I went to my local mall, also the mall I currently work at and looked around at numerous displays. The one shown below at Francesca’s caught my eye because it epitomizes spring.

. The store had beautiful potted plants along the base of the mannequins possibly representing flowers blossoming in the springtime. The colors were varying shades of pinks, blues, and whites.

My favorite outfit displayed was the pink choker top with the blue shorts. In the background you can also see that throughout some of the store the visual merchandising team kept up with the floral and pastel colors and potted plants theme displayed in the window.

I think that this is a great example of a creative and informative window display. Every once in a while I think that you should go to a place you never been or a place you don’t frequent often and just take in your surroundings.

A lot of creative statues, buildings, parks, and people are right in your hometown or neighborhood. Try to meet some of those creative people and visit some of those beautiful places, because you will never know what will inspire you.

Enjoy the rest of your week lovelies, you will be hearing from me again soon! ❤

IMG_20160509_161805Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a great week.

So, like most people, I spend a lot of my time at work. I work as a hostess in a restaurant located in one of the many Four Seasons Hotel.

I really enjoy my job because I love interacting with guests and having conversations with them.

I also get my exercise by walking guests to their seats lol 🙂 I’ve hosted in a few different restaurants but this job is the first one that actually gave me a uniform/dress to wear…pretty cool!IMG_20160406_110611.jpg

I wear a black fit and flare dress with ruffles on the bottom
of the dress, along with black flats.

I usually add accessories to the dress since it is a simple look. In this picture I am wearing pearl bracelets, and a sparkly statement necklace.

I hope you liked this peek into my work wardrobe. Have a wonderful  rest of the week my loves ❤

A Look Back

I can’t believe it’s been three years since I graduated high schoolgrad! It really doesn’t seem that long!

Since my official three year grad-anniversary was two days ago, I would love to share my graduation dress with all of my lovely readers.

I wore a white mermaid gown with ruching along the torso and down to my thighs. The bottom flared out like a mermaids tail and lightly touched the ground as I walked.

grad3On the side of it was a small flower and I paired this dress with white pointy toe heels, a pearl and silver necklace, and a pearl bracelet.

Also my hair has totally changed since these pictures. That was the first and only time ever dyed my hair and I was not natural at the time.

That style is called finger waves and now three years later I am natural and back to my normal hair color.
As you can see from my pictures, walking down the aisle to get me diploma really made me nervous. I was nervous about everyone taking my picture and I was also trying to focus on not tripping and falling!

Overall I loved my graduation dress and that day three years ago was super amazing!

What type of gown or dress did you wear on your high school graduation? I’m sure it was beautiful ❤

Boho Chic

Happy May everyone! The weather is gorgeous here in Maryland!

bohoI can finally lose all of those layers! Next week is final exam week and on Tuesday I am out for my summer break! I am so excited 🙂

It is also supposed to be in the 80’s next week so I am looking forward to that as well ❤

This outfit is inspired by the lovely weather and imagining I am on a lovely tropical beach.

My boho chic outfit comes in many parts. The multicolored pattern skirt I am wearing is actually a dress.

boho chicI rolled the uppermost part of the dress down and tucked it behind my woven brown belt. I then paired my new skirt with a denim and lace button up shirt.

I tucked my shirt in my skirt and viola, a stylish boho chic outfit. I paired this outfit with blue lace TOMS.

I wore my hair in my wavy hairstyle and added a silver studded headband to it for a touch of sparkle!

You all know I love my pearls, so I wore a pearl necklace, pearl bracelets, and pearl earrings with this outfit.
