the great debate: ny vs. la

i have now come into that stage of life where i am at a cross road. as i previously stated, i am looking to finally move to nyc to start my career in fashion. well upon looking into employment and internships, i have realized that there are a lot of opportunities in la as well… which creates the great debate! 
nyc vs. la

in nyc, it’s an obvious fashion capital with every major brand located in the city. a downfall is the fact that EVERYONE goes to new york to make their start and also the cost of living in new york. 
as in la, it’s not as known as a fashion capital but still has plenty of opportunities available. i can use la as a stepping stone to grow to new york at a later date. 
now i need your help! please vote on the poll below to which city i should choose….
nyc  or la?

la

Kate Spade Fall 2013 RTW

AHHHHHHHHHHH!! (my reaction after seeing the Kate Spade Fall 2013 RTW collection!) I am coveting EVERY piece from the collection from the color schemes to the new york inspiration to the menswear pieces and big bows. Deborah Lloyd and her design team made this whole year wonderful with all the “things we love”. 

View the rest of the collection below: 

I’m very excited for the New York inspired collection, looks with the “big apple” print on the jeans and skirts. Also, I need the taxi clutch, flats, and heels!

Iggy Azalea covers Nylon Mexico

The Australian rapper shows off her wonderful physique in very colorful and playful styles.

Navy blouse with the perfect slack.

Today, I had my follow up interview from earlier this week. I decided to bring my A Game to this interview. I hadn’t wore my teal Paige Denim slacks yet and this was the perfect opportunity. I didn’t have a top to wear it with so my mom took me to the mall & we browsed for a top. I went to get a manicure for my interview & my mom cruised through Forever21 for options. She found this really cute navy blouse with rhinestoned neckline & wrists. The quality of the blouse makes it look like it’s not from Forever21 and from a more higher classed retailer.

I feel i’m giving a classic, tailored color blocked look. The pants are THE perfect fit and that’s what made the look so great. They fit great in the legs and the length is wonderful. It resembles a 70’s wide leg pant.

Plus, they feel like butter on…. any opportunity I get. I will definitely be wearing these in the future.
