why have i never really looked at this site?


http://lookbook.nu/

this site is amazing. every outfit post is beautifully taken and all the members are totally inspiring. i know i've heard of it before, but for some reason never spent quite enough time on the site to really get to know it.

i've already found a whole list of new bloggers to follow. i definitely recommend anyone interested in fashion to take a peek at it.

photobooth is clearly the best quality


i hate taking photos with photobooth but the truth is i can't be bothered until i get into a proper blogging routine.

these pants are pretty sweet. they're mens pants made into a rouched-harem-highwaisted masterpiece. from no other than one of my favorite vintage stores, Episode, in de negen straatjes, amsterdam.

countdown til thanksgiving in amsterdam: 3 days!

i was happy not to be recognized on halloween. blonde hair + white face + creepy doll lips = fun.

Halloween Inspirations

It's always a challenge to discover what you want to be for Halloween. It's a whole new persona that you get to create, a whole new character that you get to be. No one needs to recognize you and you can pretend not to be yourself for a whole day (or weekend in London's case). An opportunity like this only happens once a year, and I plan to take full advantage of it.

kitchen tins


Have I ever mentioned how much I love my first apartment? I'm sharing it with a few of my closest friends from last year. It's so sweet, everything you could ask for. It has granny-styled swans tiled in the bathroom and a brand new kitchen fit for lovely students like ourselves. We've decorated accordingly and it's so cozy! Ah, home.

london fashion week



i wish i had been a bit more involved with london fashion week SS10. the security seemed tighter at the one show i tried to get into, but i should have just kept at it for other shows. sadly i've adapted the schedule of a grandmother. going to bed early, waking up early, going to work/school, going home, making dinner. it's comforting, but will soon get tiresome with the gray winter depression fast approaching.

woes


no internet = i feel like i'm missing a chunk out of my life. that's a no to my daily blog reads and a no to "can i keep up with all the events of the various fashion weeks?". its quite sad that internet has this affect on me. but soon, my friend, soon will i be reconnected to the world!

jag älskar sverige

i went to sweden with my one and only, and had an amazing time. i really wish i could be back there this minute! needless to say, i hope to soon be learning swedish and planning my future life there...





















the past 5 months in photographs

the past 5 months have been extremely eventful. i feel so lucky to have been able to travel countlessly and see so much for someone my age. i've made new friends, had tons of new inspiration, and have discovered a few more cities to add to my top 10. i have tons more to learn and can't wait to start my first year at the london college of fashion in the fall, living with some my favorite people i've met thus far. 

that said, here is a photo summary of where i've been, who i've been with, and what i love.
