It's the Little Things...

Hey all! 

I am back home for the summer and thought I would take a stroll downtown. It was a beautiful day outside (compared to the 40 degree weather we had last week.) I opted to go for something simple but cute. I recently bought this maxi dress for $7.99!! It is so comfortable and for the price, it has good quality. I love to wear black and white but I thought to add a pop of color since the weather is getting warmer. I fell in love with this purse a few days ago and I could not leave the store without it. I never played around with different prints so I thought today would be the day to experiment. I hope you guys enjoy!

A Day in St. Louis

Saturday I had the opportunity to go to St. Louis with my RSO (Registered Student Organization) for FDMA (Fashion Design & Merchandising Association) to visit the Alexander McQueen exhibit, A Queen Within. Everything in the exhibit wasn't Alexander McQueen but most was. Unfortunately, the items in the exhibit were copyrighted so I was not able to take pictures of the garments and displays. But let me tell you guys, it was the greatest thing I have ever seen. Each garment was constructed to beautifully and it was set up so perfectly. I was mesmerized by everything in the exhibit.  
This is the pamphlet they gave out. 

Outside the exhibit was the World's Largest Chess Piece. 

Of course, being the lovely fashion majors that we are, we had to do a little thrift shopping. 

Have a lovely week

Valentine's Day Outfit Ideas

Hello all!

Hope you all enjoy your Valentine's Day and weekend. If you are going out tonight here are some few ideas for outfit choices 

A simple red dress with a cute pair of heels, a print jacket, and some glam accessories is perfect for a formal date.

If you are looking for a not so typical red outfit for Valentine's this is perfect. A sequin midi skirt with matching necklace and earrings go great with a simple crop top and jacket. Pair it with a simple clutch and a good pair if heels and you are set for the night! 

If you are enjoying an evening with your friends, like I will be doing, opt for a pant. Add some glam with a fabulous peplum top, simple accessories, a low heel with a cute jacket to keep you warm.
