Fall Morning Class Fashion

Fall is here, and on many college campuses that means it’s time to break out the Ugg boots and sweats.

But think again, I wore this outfit on a cold fall day, I was sick, and I took this photo before 9:00 AM.   So what is your excuse for wearing sweats to class?  Not only is an outfit like this cuter, it is just as comfortable. I wore my favorite gray leggings with a long cardigan and a flannel gingham shirt.  I accessorized with my maroon scarf, vintage looking statement earrings, and red ballet flats.  If you think about wearing sweatpants to your morning classes this week, try to challenge yourself to wear a comfortable more put together outfit.  Not only will you look better, you will feel better too!


What has my life come to that I post one photo of an outfit, taken on an iPhone, in a college hall bathroom.  I apologize, but  view it as fashion dedication.

PGH Fashion Week Round Two

After my first night of shows at Pittsburgh Fashion Week, I decided to attend another which took place at Highmark Stadium, AKA the “Tent” of Pittsburgh.  Again, I was very impressed by the designs showcased. One of the best parts was I got a front row seat, a perk of arriving a little early.  I’m not sure when I’ll have the opportunity to sit front row at a fashion show again! Although Pittsburgh is a little more low-key than New York or Paris, it was still a great event!

This jacket is the perfect piece for fall! The camel color with black trim were flawless!

Take the time to notice the hand-set crystals of these pants.  They were stunning!

This dress was my favorite piece out of the whole show.  The way the sequins were almost a whole other part of her look, was sheer genius! I would love to have this dress, it was perfect.

I wore a black and white floral dress with red suede booties.  For accessories, I toted along my H&M bag, and I kept my stacked bracelets to compliment my flash tattoo that was still intact (it lasted a good four days, which really surprised me!).  Again, I’m sorry for the iPhone pictures, they are so grainy.

Pittsburgh Fashion Week: Macy’s Fashion Rocks

Last week was Pittsburgh Fashion Week, I made it to three of the shows! It was a great experience and I gained an unreal amount of inspiration to continue my studies for the week.  The first show I went to was “Macy’s Fashion Rocks” on Wednesday night, it was hosted at the Macy’s Fifth Avenue Location in Pittsburgh.  The 4th floor was completely rearranged with a stage and runway sprawled out in the middle of the floor.

I had the opportunity to assist the MC of the show, and style her accessories for the evening.  Not only did she do a great job with the event, her look was on point too!  The show featured numerous looks available at Macy’s this season along with sneak peak designs from students at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, who had their own show later in the week.

Again I was able to capture some photos on my iPhone of the event.  There was so much excitement and energy, these pictures don’t do justice.

This look was designed by Art Institute Pittsburgh Student, Leesa Kassler.  The pants were amazing, a light cotton with a metallic gold shimmer  over the pattern.  The designer did an perfect job with  the fitting!

My new obsession is flash tattoos!  If these were permanent, I would probably consider getting one.  Compliments of Macy’s everyone who attended could apply them and be dazzling!  I chose a feather to compliment my arm party! Also how cute is this Picks for Peace Bracelet! It is perfect to stack and there is a great  cause behind it!

If you ever have the chance to attend a Pittsburgh Fashion Week show, I highly recommend it! There is an unreal amount of talent in this up and coming city!
