We went to TOTO a Purikura place off of Main Street and took some fun snaps!
We went to some of the little shops and I picked up some cute notebooks. Also got bubble tea from Quickly which I highly recommend! They have cheap tasty bubble tea(get a discount with a student ID!) in lots of flavors and are right by the subway just off Main Street.
I skimmed through SexPot's new releases a few weeks back and picked out a few things for now that I knew I definitely had to have for Spring. I picked them up at work this past weekend!
Here's what I got:
G.S.Q-1977 FUNNY BIG CUTSEW
I LOVE knit tops like this, I'm so glad the a-cut drape style is in right now. Also baggy knits give my current favorite silhouette shape of 'loose top skinny bottoms'. They fit my body type rather boyish as well which I find to really look good
on me. Super comfy and lightweight for Spring too!
BRASH FUNNY BIG CUTSEW
This is the same type of shirt with a different design. I fell in love with the bright green color and couldn't help but want to add it to my wardrobe. I can't wait to start coordinating it!
G.S.Q-1977 TOTE BAG
This tote is wider than normal square totes and can fit longer object
s more conveniently, for example my sketchbooks for class of my computer! It's just the right amount of extra space without being too big and I just love how totes feel to carry. This color combination was my favorite!
As for accessories:
I've been styling these new studded gems. The bracelet I got from Hottie @ St Marks Place, which is definitely one of my favorite accessories stores. It's actually one leather strip with different studs that wraps around three times before crossing in the back to close.
The ring is from SexPot's Spring shipment as well:
Just a few things right now! I'm really fond of some other items from the Spring collection but this is my latest purchase~
So I dyed my hair again! The red was fading and I wanted something new so I decided to dye black into my hair again. I dyed all my bangs this time instead of just a piece like I've done in the past! I made sure to not dye too far back so that there were enough blonde layers to brush forward on top of the black. I can style my hair with more black showing if I'm up for it but now I have the option! I used Manic Panic 'Raven' dye! It's more extreme in person it seems.
Had a lot of fun visitors at work yesterday! Here's what I wore:
I also filmed a video of the new SexPot stock we got in. I also had a special order of SexPot of their new Spring collection which came in with the order as well, so yay new clothes! I'll show off my loot a following post!
The judging for the 4th semester AAS exhibition at school was today for my class! I was so nervous but I ended up getting in which was a huge stress reliever. Only half the class got in so I'm proud of myself for working so hard and making it in. I really can see myself growing as a designer.
As stated before the theme was Film Noir/Femme Fatale. It had to be museum quality and something special.
My design was based off the strong willed women of 1940/50s Film Noirs. A seductress/showgirl who isn't afraid to play dirty to get what she wants but not degrade herself. Also tried mixing hard a soft elements with materials and themes, and mix modern and past elements of Femme Fatale. For instance the leather adds a dominatrix modern feel yet the fur shrug(fake!) is reminiscent of the glamourous ladies of the 1940s movies. I could go on forever about it but you get the idea haha
Don't have a great picture up yet but this is a preview from my phone for now! =)
So not sure if I mentioned here but, in January I went in to TimeOut Magazine's NY studio for a photoshoot for their Most Stylish NYers Issue! They found me through Tokyo Rebel and liked my fashion style, so had me pick three winter coordinates to show off my style! They ended up upgrading me to a full page as a Style Icon in an issue. I'm in the issue released today, #807 April 7-13! There's also an online article which I'm linking to below!
