Wearing: Jacket (similar), Dress (Vintage), Hat (similar), Report Aydin Boots

Effortless is ideal. That's what I try to tell myself everyday as the goal to keeping my wardrobe as clean and crisp as possible. I've been around as a retail worker here and back so I know how trends are sold and thrust at consumers, so lately I've been inching for more classic staples and vintage objects. For example, I've been waiting for fall weather to strike to break out this velvet dress. It's an 80's vintage piece made to be sultry and sexy, I'm loving the v-cut neck and back-line on this it screams vixen! You don't find things that feel as good and look as simple as this dress anymore! But I'm shameful to admit, I'm still a sucker for good prices from Forever 21 and H&M. It's a bit hard to resist the pull. I always find something I'd like to add to my wardrobe from these mall favorites. How do I resist the pull? By reading. Lots of reading. Particularly reading these texts in the picture above. They keep you busy and give you great inspiration to...not to live as fast as fast-fashion.

Lately in Future-Past

Wearing: Jacket (Vintage Levis), Snapback + Slip Dress + Sandals (Asos)

My BF's somber apartment view.

Bubble Tea at Saigon.

Oh Asos. Take my wallet. I had been looking for another basic midi slip-dress with a twist, and found this one in their summer sale. I love how it feels; airy and comfortable against me. Perfect for this heat.

So after debating with myself all summer, I decided to not keep my internship through the school year. My co-workers gave me some flowers as a parting gift which was very endearing to me. But I'm back in the frying pan, it's senior year! So that means capstone projects and personal projects galore. Visual Communication Design can be demanding sometimes so time will be of the essence for many projects. I'm glad to have had the experiences that I did at my internship over the summer, but now I will focus my efforts on my own work and what it means to me. I have a feeling this blog will immensely grow to be apart of what "work" means to me, so please look forward to my journey in this crazy visual world.
