Quotes To Live By

1. Honesty is more than not lying. It is truth telling, truth speaking, truth living, and truth loving. James E. Faust

2. If she's amazing, she won't be easy. If she's easy, she won't be amazing. If she's worth it, you won't give up. If you give up, you're not worthy... Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you: you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for. Bob Marley

3.If you wanna fly, you got to give up that shit that weighs you down. Toni Morrison

4. Be nice to people on the way up, you'll meet them again once you fall down.

5. Love is not about finding the perfect person, it's about learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.

PS. I miss writing these posts, definitely going to make it a goal to write them more often.

Karlie Kloss for W Magazine Oct 2012

I think this editorial Nick Knight shot/illustrated of Karlie Kloss for W Magazine is absolutely stunning. It's practically fashion fused into art. The couture ensembles from Christian Dior by Raf Simons, Chanel, Giambattista Valli, Givenchy, and Iris van Herpen look incredibly beautiful and artistic, which is what haute couture basically is, but clearly Karlie takes the editorial and the clothes to another level from the hair, the makeup, to her poses. My favorite shot is of her bending backwards in an Atelier Versace gown, simply beautiful. So different, yet oh so good. Tres bien Monsieur Enninful.

Zac Efron for Black Book

Christopher Campbell did a fantastic job dressing The Paper Boy's Zac Efron in this editorial for Black Book Magazine. The ensembles were chic, simple, and classic, which I think really helped showcase Zac's personality in this fun, animal filled spread. Cute partners for a cute guy. We can all agree that Zac looks good in this editorial. Then again does he ever look bad? ;)

Collaboration: First Look at Maison Martin Margiela x H&M

EHHHH, not too sure what I think of this collection yet. The tan mens coat looks divine, but as for the women's collection, I'm not at all too thrilled from what I've been seeing. I was never personally a Margiela fan, but I guess I'll have to wait for the full lookbook to determine whether or not Lanvin and the other past collaborations were better than this one. What do you guys think? Like what you see so far?

Photo Diary: My Life in NYC

I can't believe it's already been four months since I've lived here in New York City! Time sure does fly by and again, I apologize for the extremely slow updates here on my blog. Juggling a full time job with CHANEL and interning at BULLETT Magazine takes up a lot of my time, especially when I'm working 16 day work weeks! Anywho, mama's got a new job, and let's just say I've joined corporate America and I'm on my way to becoming a buyer!! Therefore, I'll have more time to commit to my blog and updating. Here's some random shots I took on my digi cam, which I plan on doing more of, so sit tight! They are are comin!

Anja Rubik by Camilla Akrans for Numéro

LOVE LOVE LOVE the decadence of this editorial Anja Rubik did with Camilla Akrans for Numéro. So rich and so stunning. I'm glad I'm seeing more and more of Anja (one of my all time favorites!); I'm also happy to see her nab the first campaign for Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent. The photo of her in the Givenchy ensemble is currently my desktop and I think it is one of the most beautiful photos I've seen in a long time.
