The lovely comes from within.

I want to share some exciting news.  Today I just found that my poetry class is going to be publishing a book and in it includes three poems written by me.  I just bursted out with excitement.  It's as if the world is giving me what I've always wanted.  The feeling of owning a book and knowing that you are co creator of it...well, it's a glorious feeling.

Ok ok back to the main issue :)  Last Saturday I probably changed outfits one too many times.  There was this volcanic eruption of clothes on my bed and then I saw.... the most perfect shorts ever a bit highwaisted and paperbagish.  I had an itch to wear something floral and everything just collided.  It was perfection.  Yes, I have a tendency to fall in love with clothes.  I wore this outfit with my favorite cognac oxfords.  It was the perfect blend of european street fashion.

It's a bit weird...when I put on certain outfits it's as if I transform into someone else.  I personally believe clothing can change your emotions.  It has something to do with your mantra and soul.  When I shop for clothes I feel an instant connection, as if the blouses, skirts, pants talked to me.  It's that connection that has led me to have beautiful pieces of clothing.

Newfound Glory.

These past few days I've been down with a cold and been dealing with college headaches.  I found time to get gussied up and go out.  My parents always say "Even if you are going grocery shopping, find time to be your loveliest self".  I find that actually quite motivating.  So, I got up from my depression coma and saw a new day.  I always tend to go as natural as possible.  The ability that makeup should achieve is to enhance the beauty you already posses.

For inspiration these days I've been leaning towards Olivia Palermo classy style.  She is the definition of New York City Chic.  Everything is polished and prepped.  Not once does she not look flawless.

I adore this woman so much it's unbelievable.  She knows how to look amazing even if it's a simple T-shirt and some pants.  She pulls it off with confidence and grace.  I believe young women should stop idolizing these pop stars: Miley Cyrus, Kesha, Nicky Minaj... and look up to these remarkable people such as:  Olivia Palermo, Audrey Hepburn, Keira Knightley, Emma Watson... these women clearly know how to capture attention by having taste and not reaching a certain vulgarity.
