The Walk 2015 SAIC

Posted on Thursday, May 14, 2015

Last Friday, I attended The SAIC Walk fashion show. The SAIC students did such a fabulous job this year! The Walk featured sophomores, juniors, and seniors designs. The two special guests at the show were Claudia Hart and Diane Pernet. The Dolls performance created by Claudia Hart was really cool and a great way to start the show. She projected images and videos on different models as they danced wearing screens. This year the theme was gold. The sophomores were able to use white and gold for their collections this year, which I loved! I thought that the students used the color restriction beautifully. The whites and the golds really complimented each other well. The juniors and seniors had a variety of colors in their collections. Both classes did an amazing job with creating collections, they were very cohesive. As each new collection came down the runway I kept trying to take as many pictures as possible while still enjoying the collections in person. These photos that I have posted below are some of my favorite looks, along with some of the better pictures that I took. The lighting was a bit dim so I apologize for the lack of clarity in some photos. I had an amazing time attending the event. Each year I am impressed with the creativity and innovation that the students display in their collections. Overall the show was outstanding! I want to say congratulations to all of the SAIC fashion students!

Enjoy the fashion,

Winter Break

Posted on Sunday, January 18, 2015

Hello lovelies!
Over winter break we went to Miami for a week. The weather was high 70's and low 80's the entire time and sunny so we couldn't asked for better weather. Being in the sun felt so good! We stayed at a lovely hotel called the Delano in South Beach. The Delano is such a cool place, it is added to my list of favorite hotels for sure! The decor and interior design was so beautiful. We stayed in a bungalow which was all white on the inside and had an amazing balcony which was where we spent many nights dancing on. For the majority of the time I was with my little sister Danielle, Maddy, and Brooke. We had such an amazing time together. Some highlights from the trip were: laying out in the sun, the J. Cole NYE pool party, dancing in the pool, sitting out on the pool beds at night, eating cobb salads, and drinking iced coffee all day. I hope everyone had a nice holiday! All of these photos were taken on my phone so my apologies for the lack of quality in some shots. I hope you like my photo diary of our trip.
