New York City

During our breaks from Teen Vogue, we had time to do a couple others things. We got our shopping in early and made sure to stop at Occupy Wallstreet for a good portion of our first day. We ran into 5pointz as well, which was an awesome surprise!

Highland Square

{Vintage sequined jacket, Louis Vuitton bag, Zara flats, Forever 21 dress, Pashmina scarf}

I went exploring Highland Square (the little community I live in) a couple weeks ago, and found this absolutely beautiful home with a great flower garden in the backyard. Perfect spot to snap a couple photos..

Polka Dots

While I was in Brooklyn I was able to stop at Beacon's Closet and snag these cool polka dot tights! Last week’s weather let me finally dress up and show them off.
This is my first outfit post so stayed tuned for lots more!

I may or may not be addicted to online shopping..

One of the many perks of making jewelry is bartering with other artists/collectors! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve fallen in love with an item that was too expensive, but the artist/collector was willing to trade a couple pieces of jewelry for it instead. This week I went a little overboard and spent/traded way too much but! New York’s in 2 weeks so it’s worth it.

Vintage lizard bracelet valued at $50; traded 2 necklaces

MARC JACOBS cheetah print pants valued at $70; traded 3 necklaces

RTW Favorites

After hours of looking through the new Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear collections I managed to narrow my favorites down to 12 designers. Here are my top two favorites of each collection!

*p.s. I added a personal touch with the color coordinated bubbles :)
