Madewell in SF! (Oh, and I was blogged!)

I can now die and go to heaven. Why you ask? Well, Earlier this week (my favorite store EVER) Madewell opened it’s doors here in San Francisco!! They threw an opening party on Thursday night and it was tons of fun. There were so many stylin’ dudes and ladies there it was insane (which made it very hard to get to the open bar in the back, but my friends and I made it. phew!) I can’t wait to go back and get a better look at everything.

During the party a photo was snapped of me by Stylenik. They posted it, with some other great pics they took at the party. You can check mine out below, and the others here!

I’m wearing a BDG top and ecote belt from Urban Outfitters, vintage Diane Von Furstenberg skirt, asos tights, Me Too shoes from DSW, and necklaces from Nordstroms.

Thanks Stylenik!!

All I Want for Christmas is You. (and a few other things.)

Once again, it’s been quite a while since I’ve blogged. I don’t really have an excuse, all I can say is that the combination of grad school, Thanksgiving, and getting sick all contributed to the lack of posts. Finals end in about a week, and I’m planning on posting more regularly over winter break. This is gonna be a quick one, because I need to start working on my my final project for Fashion Illustration. I’m going to draw these images in my own style, then I will choose my favorite one and lightbox that drawing onto some fabric, and when all that’s said and done I’m going to hand embroider the dress of the fabric drawing.

The one on the left is from the  Alexander McQueen Spring ’09 collection and the one on the right is from the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring ’10 collection. It’s going to be a lot of work, but it’ll definitely be worth it. I’m going to be posting pictures of it, as well as some of my other design projects after the semester ends, so stay tuned.

Oh also, if you’re interested I’ve added a new link to the LOST and FIND ME page up at the top. It’s a link to my last.fm profile. Before you check it out I want to preface the top artists and songs in my library by saying that I signed up for last.fm quite a long time ago, and then stopped using it for a couple of years… but now I’m back and scrobbling new tunes!

I’ve put together a quick Christmas wish-list for you all to peruse. It was my first time using Polyvore. I had a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to use it more in the future! I would absolutely love everything/anything on the list (obvi), but if I had to choose I’d say that the #1 thing would probably be the Madewell high-riser jeans. I’m so over low-rise/hip-hugger style… it’s not even funny. You all might think I’m crazy now, but just wait and see because the natural waist look is coming back (thank goodness!!).

Okay, I’ve officially spent way too much time avoiding school work… so I’m just going to say enjoy!
