This week is definitely crunch time! Most of my classes are ending very soon and I have final assignments and projects to give in. So let’s say that my computer has been my best friend lately, even though we already share a very close relationship ;) And let’s not forget caffeine, the greatest discovery on earth if you ask me… and chocolate… and macarons… and… Ok, not the only one I guess! I am actually working on my new resume and portfolio, as I will pursue all the avenues that can lead me into a fashion career! Also, I have a final fashion styling project that I have to present. I have to create a mood board with all the items/ideas that have inspired me to come up with a specific theme. From that, I have to design two styles (garments and accessories) that I will then photoshoot and present to a potential client. It’s all about creativity and your eye for fashion! Loving it! If you want to see the final result, let me know!
Today I am posting a look that I wore for class earlier in the semester when the weather was still acceptable! It was shot around Union Square, which is close to Parsons School of Fashion. You can find there a little park and a Farmers’ Market, where you can get local organic products ranging from fruits, breads to soap and lavender. Super cute! I have to restrain myself from indulging every time I’m there! Since I was heading to class, my main purpose when it came to choosing my attire was comfort!
I wore a pencil cotton grey skirt that I ordered online back in the fall from Zara. It’s stretchy, body hugging, snug and extremely versatile. By wearing it with dark black tights, it reflected a relaxed vibe. As for the glitter socks (and bright lipstick), they were just my fun personal wink ;) I have worn this skirt with bare legs and high pumps in the past for a night out. You can also sport it with loafers, a knit sweater and a chunky necklace for an urban look. So, the options are endless! Since the weather permitted, I coordinated it with a bluish grey leather jacket. It’s a nice hybrid of biker/moto designs. The sleek style is crafted from washed leather and ribbed knit fabric that allows ease of movement. What I like the most about it is the fit! Rarely do you find a leather jacket that contours the body (without having it adjusted to your size) and that doesn’t loose its shape after a while. I find it creates an attractive silhouette by accentuating the natural curves of the body. We give it an A+! I’m in the student mode as you can see, with my grading!
To keep cozy, I wrapped myself with an oversized knit scarf. I think its fur edges compliment delicately the grey and blue of the jacket. When it came to carrying my laptop, IPad, notebooks as well as my regular purse items (and we know that could be a lot!), I had to rely on my beige tote. It’s convenient, simple and matches everything! Let me tell you that I have overused it here! For footwear, I opted for black wedge booties, because they are comfortable to wear, easy to walk around in and have a modern touch to them. With the mix of textures, they are the perfect finish to a NYC street style. Do you agree?
Have a great week my friends! Wherever you are heading, don’t forget to stop and grab a great big cup of Starbucks coffee :)
