Summertime&the livings easy

School is over, and Im not exactly someone who is overtly "whiney" about hating school. But to say the least, boy oh boy am I glad I have some time to get over the insane year I've had. Deciding it would be in my best interest, I wanted to try and read an uplifting book/novel. So, I went to a Barnes and Noble and just spent some time trying to find something that caught my eye.
I decided on the book If You Have To Cry, Go Outside by Kelly Cutrone. In no sense of the word am I a fan of the MTV "reality" shows she appears on, but Ive seen interviews of her and the insight she provides is extremely interesting. Anyways... the book is rather good. Go check it out.

Is that a fanny pack I just saw?

You have got to be kidding me. Lately, I, unfortunately, have been noticing fanny packs. I, in all honesty cannot believe that this is an actual "trend". While sitting in my chem class (because everyone totally day-dreams during science...)I realized that this was a topic that had to be talked about. Whenever I think of "fanny packs" I think of neon windbreakers, nylon tracksuits, and suburban mothers who don't want to carry a purse. People, such as Rihanna (cringe :/...sorry its the truth) have been photographed wearing fanny packs. And while browsing on the Internet I saw that not only are some people saying fanny packs are "back" but, Marc Jacobs is now making them for Louis Vuitton. I feel like sending Marc a literate message filled with different metaphors describing the pain I feel while seeing this monstrosity continue. I love all of your opinions, What do you think? Should these make a come back? Or even better if you know someone who wears them, how do you feel when your in public with them. In the West Coast, it doesn't seem to be an issue, thankfully, but an elderly couple across the street wears them and I give them a pass because they have restrictions others do not have.

&& Like I said in my older posts here is some of the collages, paintings, and spray paint stencils I made for art class.

Hola Hola Hola Hola

So, I have been EXTREMELY busy, and have been planning for my Art shows this week. On Thursday, my school is having an art show, and then on Saturday I have my showcase that has another art show... sooo I have decided that I am going to take some photos, and then post them so you guys can see some of my work. I am putting in 2 photos into my schools art show, as well as me and a girl in my art class who designs are making a display in a case with her and my clothes as well as vintage renewels. And on Saturday I am putting in 3 photos into the show. My central idea being a sequence of action shots with a background of train tracks and cloudy skies.

So look for that probably on Saturday night or Sunday (:
&& Hope everyone has an amazing rest of the week, I know for me school is winding down for this year. Cant wait for summer. Goodbye to my wonderful followers, and to those who are not, follow me, and join the maddness (:

A summer outfit option

Here's one of many options for a girl's outfit:

&& Here is a good Men's summer option:

I really this year am liking the whole beachy trend, but as always I have to add my edgy spin on it. Tell me what you think, and what trends you like and/or dislike this summer.

Until Later,

Words cannot describe how sorry I am

Goodness, it has been FOREVER. Most of you probably thought I had quit. Well thats not within my repertoire. Those of you who read my blog know that before this incredibly long hiatus I was very sick and hospitalized, well, after fighting that I had to rebuild my immune system and get well. Thus being the reason for my non-existent posting. So, again, I truly apologize, but I am going to continue blogging and pursue my ideas I had before. But I did want your opinions. So, if you could please leave a comment telling me what you would like to see that would be great (:
Be ready for another post later in the day about my favorite fashion/art magazines and why I love them...........

Love you lots,

Inspirational thoughts, leading to an all out epiphany.

As I was pondering ideas for my friends prom dress that I am making, I thought... what could I do to make my blog even better? And I realized that you guys know nothing about me, yes I did a Q&A but very few people asked questions (thanks to those who did), so I didnt want to do a whole other Q&A post cause that'd be just weird but I figured you guys could ask your questions here and I would answer them in my next post or in the comments. Ask as many as you want.

Also Im going on a trip next weekend to visit some family and Im going to make sure and post pictures of some of my adventures, the clothes I buy...if any, as well as some unique street style I find. So look for that.

And if you guys could also comment and give me some feed back on what you would like to see on my blog, or what you think I could do better. And please remember to "follow" me I'd really appreciate it, and when I get to 15-20 followers I'll do the vintage clothes giveaway thingy I talked a bout a few post back. Have a wonderful Saturday, && little less than a week until Alice & Wonderland.

p.s. For some odd reason I have the beach boys stuck in my head...odd considering I havent listened to the beach boys in forever. Anyways, sorry for the ramble.

Theres something about Georgia

Magazine covers, ad campaigns, beauty contracts, and more. That even, only listing some of the things this amazing person has accomplished.

As the daughter of the legendary ROCK GOD Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall, Georgia May Jagger is literally one of my main muses for my designs and one of the often used sources for my insiration.

A long time ago I had the pleasure of actually meeting her at a Rolling Stones concert I went to, and was able to get backstage to see Mick because my Mom's boyfriend was able to get us some passes. When we went to get my & my brothers picture taken with Mick, Georgia was there to see the show as well. Honestly though, the sad part is, when I met her I was a lot younger(as was she) so I dont remember every detail as I wish I did... how cruel life can be.

Just in the last couple years she has been nominated for a "Model of the Year" award, done ad campaigns for Hudson Jeans, and Versace. She booked a Huge deal with Rimmel cosmetics, and landed the cover of British Vogue. She is on a roll, and you will definatly be seeing Georgia in a lot more campaigns and ads.
