NYFW IN LA?


What would you have worn to New York's 
biggest fashion event of the year?








I think this outfit would suffice!

One of the top items on my bucket list is a visit to New York Fashion Week (in addition to fashion weeks in Milan, Paris, London, etc). However, since I'm currently a college student on a budget, I decided to bring fashion week to Los Angeles! 

Fashion week is about bringing your A-game when it comes to personal style. Bloggers, editors and models alike all dress to impress and go against whats conventional in order to show off what they enjoy wearing to the myriad of street style photographers wandering around in hopes of getting a perfect shot.

I chose to wear this ensemble in honor of NYFW and wore a bright pop of hot pink to make it even more eye-catching. I paired it with a denim-like jacket worn over the shoulder (very fashion blogger-esque, no?) and a cropped tank to really allow the pink skirt to play the leading role. To accessorize, I added hints of gold through my necklace, studded boots and watch. I also balanced out the femininity of the outfit with a black beanie.

With my phone in hand and eyes peeled for the latest trend, don't I look fashion week appropriate?

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT:


I can never get over the awkwardness 
when in front of the camera...








Ok, ok...for those who have been checking up on my blog, you'd have noticed the sudden change in editing. That's because I am currently testing out Photoshop and Lightroom! I am still in the learning process (which is ever so slowly improving) and I hope that I can ultimately produce nice quality edits for my photos. If you have any comments or advice on what I've got so far, please let me know in the comments section down below. Feedback is much appreciated!

Anyway, this outfit-of-the-day was actually taken about a week ago when the weather was still cool. I paired a black, cropped knit sweater with a highly contrasting hot pink skirt that I, of course, thrifted in a store right here in La Jolla! A lot of folks seem to avoid bright, in-your-face colors, but pairing or layering such colored clothing with a more subtle monotone piece can create a highly wearable look. Add in some statement jewelry and/or other accessories and voila! Remember: you can take my advice, but always make it your own! Go and wear a colored-blocked neon montage or layer in some patterns. You do you honey boo boo~
