it's all in the people you know.

in my life a lot of different things have inspired me to create and express my own personal and unique style. art, music, photographs, cultures are huge influences in how a person creates a piece of art and how i intermix these things with fashion to create my own piece of art or sense of style. but one main influence is the people in my life. from my family and best friends to people i see walking down the street and will never know their name. people and the way they express themselves influences fashion and everyone does it differently. so i wanted to share a few people in my life, whether they are very close to me or just acquaintances, that have influenced my style and give inspiration to me through the way they express themselves. 

the top two people who influence my style the most are my sisters and best friends, maggie and meagan. with each of us having our own personal unique style, we encourage and influence each other with our different thoughts and ideas about fashion.

for emma, forever ago.

one of my favorite artists, bon iver, doing a spontaneous a capella version of "for emma, forever ago" in a hallway in paris. he is playing in birmingham tonight and unfortunately i am not going :( i am a little bummed.


when in doubt.

confession. i love alexander wang.
i love alexander's designs. they are simple but fun. its all about just throwing something on but looking cool and fashionable. being a fairly new designer and launching his first women's collection in 2007, alexander designs have attracted some of my favorite style icons such as mary kate olsen and taylor momsen. 

As for the new Alexander Wang vibe, it's all about a certain urban, nonchalant cool. Or, as the designer likes to say, it's about the ‘M.O.D.,’ or Model Off-Duty.
a look into the office of alexander wang.
