Want Something and LET YOURSELF HAVE IT!

What movie is my title from?

Don’t be mad! It’s been awhile, I know. But, in my defense, I have been SUPER busy. This summer I had an internship with Teen Vogue, which was insane and awesome! I can’t post too many details, but if you are interested just chat with me! All the people I worked with and for are amazing people and so grateful for getting to know them and look forward to see what those talented people do in the future.

At the end of the summer, I was able to assist stylist Laura Pritchard, who styled the Teen Vogue Fashion Haute Spot for Fashion Week! That was another amazing experience and I learned so much and it helps that she too is an awesome person and incredibly hard working and creative. I would post pictures but not sure I can just yet!

Now that NY Fashion Week is complete I decided to share my top 5 collections with you (a little late)! I appreciate your feedback and would love to hear your favorite looks, moments and collections! Also, special shout out to my friend Elmar!

As always- Comments get shout outs on the next post, which will come in a week or two! I am already planning on London, Milan and Paris Fashion Week coverage as well as share my current obsession!

Below is the S/S 2012 Alexander Wang Show…. Props to Kelly for interning there this summer!

Guess Who’s Back?! Not Slim Shaddy…

So this blog first started as a means to chart my progress is fashion and modeling… However, after taking a lengthy hiatus, my priorities have changed. I started working for All Saints over this past summer- more will come from that- and being so busy with school and work, modeling has gone to the back burner. I decided that I will pursue hardcore when I am able to move to NYC full time. Also, I’m in Sydney, Australia.

Also check out some awesome photography and some of my newest pictures @ Meyer Inspired!

Sydney is amazing. This city is beautiful and way bigger and metropolitan than I thought. Not having to go through a Boston this winter this year is a definite positive in being here as well. The flight here was miserable. I had to fly Tampa NYCLASydney. I was so tired after but being here is surreal. Today was the first moment that I realized where I was. After a day of a scavenger hunt through the city, seeing a ton of amazing sights. Being at Bondi Beach was too great. Pictures to come soon!
I am going to keep this blog as a means to keep people posted on my experiences here in Sydney AND… Sydney fashion is pretty sick. I see so much awesome-ness that I need to share with my fellow Americans and others!
I wrote that first part when I first got to Sydney—- camera broke so that has hindered my ability to post some of Sydney street looks. Yet, I find myself still coming back here and trying to figure what the hell I am going to write about. This past month has been filled with drag kings and queens, launch of Mardi Gras- the Gay and Lesbian parade, a wonderful trip to Melbourne, lots of beach action, and TONS of food!
My favorite part of Melbourne, besides the sick hotel- Mantra at the Bay, was the bar culture. It was very similar to the underground bar scene in New York, the one that comes to mind is Cabin Below in New York. There a lot of lane ways in Melbourne that might seem to lead to nowhere, but not until you go down one that you discover little cafes and bars that only lone stragglers or the in-the-know Melbs would know about.
One day at Coogee beach, exploring the rocky shore with Laura (the Wife) and Car, we found ourselves against the crashing waves at the edge of a low rock cliff. I thought it would be a good idea to go to the very edge and sit down, but of course, as soon as I sit, a huge wave knocks me over and I get thrown across the barnacle covered rocks that hurt just to walk on. I got cut all over my hands and legs and a huge cut on my knee. IT WAS AWESOME.
I have gone to a couple of music events in Sydney- Big Day Out and Kaskade. Pictures to follow.

Also, if you have never heard of Trop Fest it is AWESOME! It is the largest short film festival in the world! Google it 🙂

This past weekend was Mardi Gras as well! It is the Gay Lesbian Parade in Sydney and I got to be in it! It was so much fun! Best thing I have done in Australia for sure 🙂

Also- I know this is a tad late but better late than never! right? –> NYC Fashion Week- My favorites

Burberry Prorsum- This collection was beautiful. I feel like it strayed a little from its typical look, but in a VERY good way. I loved the blending of colors that fused classing fall colors with subtle hints into the winter scene. The collection definitely had a story to tell and there will most surely be a happy-ending. Take a look at some of the photos below and let me know what you think!

Douglas Hannant- I just love collections that are inspired by the flapper. He takes this iconic image of a woman, makes her sexier, more chic, and definitely fashion forward.

Marc by Marc Jacobs- The first thing I thought of when I saw this collection was The Lovely Bones. I love it! I love the color palate of this line the most. I can’t wait to see his influence on the streets come fall!

RAD by Rad Hourani- If I had to pick a collection to wear until the next NYC Fashion Week (or for the rest of my life), it would be this one. This take on fall is definitely a lot darker, which I love. There are so many angles and it is so dramatic I could die! I’m obsessed. Also, I want to note the androgynous models, another theme seen on the runway this season. I don’t know if I’m more obsessed with the models or the clothes!

The Row- speechless.

Robert Geller- If I had to choose a collection for the entirety of the male population to where this fall. It would be this. Omfg.

Christian Siriano- Always amazing. Love the classic pieces. Love the edginess. Love him.

Wayne- Looks like Marilyn Manson and Kelly Cutrone made love on an orange farm. Good or bad? Check below!

Wes Gordon- As a collection- eh. There were some pieces I loved and some I threw up on.

Richard Chai- Loved. One thing was missing though and not quite sure what. Maybe a little more color?
Some collections to look at: Matthew Williamson, Simon Spurr, Jason Wu, Duckie Brown.
Were there any collections you loved or hated! Comment and let me know!
Came by this on accident, and so glad it happened. From London Fashion week

David Koma- Love- edgy, but hot. Very funky and definitely not your typical fall collection.
