Blogger Highlight: We Wore What

We Wore What is a great blog that I like to keep up with. Danielle Berstein is the founder and creator who studies at FIT. Her style is very minimalist and a bit masculine, but I like it because it’s daring, bold and she isn’t afraid to wear something out of the box . If you like street style fashion and New York City scenery, I would definitely recommend checking out her blog!

New York Fashion Week

Fashion Week in New York starts tomorrow! I can remember being in Paris for fashion week like it was yesterday. Everyone is dressed to the nines, whether they’re going to the shows or not. It’s so fun to see the creativity in person. Here are some pictures to get you just as excited as I am!

Glossi.com - Fall Lookbook

This program I just found called Glossi is awesome. You can basically make online magazines and lookbooks, and click right on the image to go to the website where it came from. Online shopping was never so easy huh

Jean on Jean…on Jean

     I saw this style often while I was in Paris. When I first saw the jean shirt on jean pants combo I thought, woah ew that looks straight out of the 90’s a la Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears. The more I witnessed people rocking the trend though, the more I warmed up to it and realized there are a lot of fun ways to play with it. Unfortunately I didn’t capture any of my own photographs, but here are some cool ideas from my Pinterest board!

Boot Camp

Along with leather pants, another fall trend that started last year, but is coming back in full swing is little booties! You can wear them with jeans or even a dress and they add a little something-something to your outfit. Here are some images to get you inspired as I am:

Don’t believe me that they add a little something-something? Here are some pictures I took in Paris last year before fashion week.

Actual Inspiration

In light of some recent events, I thought having a generally inspiring post was appropriate. Today I went to Chanticleer with my grandmother to paint. We had an amazing time as you can see from the photos.

The thing I want to highlight is that ordinary things like bees and flowers and plants can be overlooked through time. What I love most about photography is that you can create a window and a frame to highlight something ordinary, and make it extraordinary. Every shoot I’ve done so far are in interesting locations, sure, but it’s taking the time to really appreciate them instead of just glancing through that makes the photos so special. It’s being with great people and taking the time to enjoy the moment you’re in now because you never know what could happen tomorrow.

Leatha Lookbook

Leather was starting to make an appearance last year, but this fall and even end of summer (aka right now!!) leather is taking the forefront as the easiest and trendiest addition to one’s closet. Pants, skirts, shorts, tops, jackets–any and every article of clothing can take on this trend. Personally, I already have my leather pants, shorts and skirt, but I’m holding out for a nice black blazer with leather sleeves. Soo if anyone sees one let me know!

Here is a video from The New York Times street stylist, Bill Cunningham, explaining just how prominent leather is currently. Remember when I saw him in person in Paris?

Anyways look out for tomorrow’s boutique highlight featuring none other than some really chic…leather pants!! Woooop
