Time is flying by so fast! Only 10 days before I go back to Montreal! I don’t know if I’m counting the days before I go back to my hometown, my family and friends, my job and my “real life”… Or the number of days I have left in New York and all the things I want to do, places left to visit and what I am leaving behind… I am torn between the comfort and stability of my sweet Montreal and the unpredictability and thrill of my newest home, NYC. I have been reflecting immensely and doing a lot of introspection lately...
One thing is for sure though; I will make this year one of answers!
I just got back from my last class at Parsons School of Fashion, where I was attending Professional Practices for Fashion. It was one of my favourites! I met amazing and inspiring people and made friends that I now hold dear to my heart and will make sure to keep after this journey in the Big Apple ends! But the main reason I cared so much for this class was that it allowed me to actually believe that my dream could become reality! It gave me the right tools to pursue a career in this exciting industry! And for that… I am beyond grateful!
Parsons being a fashion and design school, its buildings and their visual aspects are very creative, which were a great background for the shots you see in this post. They were taken in a sitting area and a gallery within one of the pavilions. The colorful art was complementary to what I was wearing that day! When I saw the indigo dungarees, I found them so cool that I had to buy them! They reminded me of what I used to wear in high school (in corduroy back then)! Do you remember those? They were a must to every teenager’s wardrobe! What I like about the ones from Zara is the dark denim, which make them more modern and the wide legs. I was always a fan of the 70’s fashion, maybe because of all the pictures I saw of my parents sporting the palazzo pants! I am thrilled that this trend is coming back for the fall/winter season! We will be seeing a lot of neon hues, leather, suede and fringes. To update the style, I wore a graphic designed crop top from American Apparel. I like how the black and white patterns speak to you like a Warhol illustration! Andy meets the seventies! When I think of pop art, I associate it with bold colors! That’s why I opted for a vivid blue hat and red lips. I felt the outfit was livelier! What do you think?
Did you find Waldo yet? I did ;)
