Trend Alert: Fuzzy Sweater

So as most of you may know I live in the sunny state of Florida. Fortunately our winters aren't as brutal as other states so the season is a bit different for us (it varies like crazy). So in celebration of the chilly days to come whats not a better post then a trend report? One of my fave trends this season would definitely have to be the fuzzy sweater/cardigan. Not only do they keep you warm without being overbearing, they also had a hint of fun to an outfit while adding unexpected texture. This trend screams mid 90s to me and reminds me of the movie Clueless. I recently purchased a black fuzzy cardigan from H&M and I can not wait to show you all how I style it with a few of my other favorite pieces for this season (it's a secret!). Anywho, below I'll post a few pictures of celebrities and how they styled their fuzzy sweaters.

I personally adore Ciara's monochromatic look and I also personally have had a similar PVC skirt such as the one she is wearing on my wish list for a while now. Her white cat eye frames along with her pointy toe pumps add a 70s flare to the look.

Below you'll find a few looks that I have created that could serve as some fashion-inspo to you all. Let me know your thoughts on these looks and if you are thinking about purchasing a fuzzy piece!

Alexander Wang x HM

So the much anticipated partnership between Alexander Wang and H&M took place yesterday online and in stores and it surely was a success! Once I heard about this collection I knew it was going to be huge and couldn't wait until the pieces were debuted. I decided to check the collection out this morning and got an error message on the H&M website signifying that it crashed (not surprised at all!).

The pieces are sportswear inspired in shades of grey, black, and white. Lately these have been my go to colors so to see Alexander Wang debut a collection only with this pallet definitely peaked my interest and stood out to my inner fashionista. A few pieces he featured are performance wear tank tops, dresses with bold detailing, and very durable coats/jackets. He didn't limit himself to only creating clothes for females either so guys don't feel left out! I'll post a few pictures of the looks below:

Of course my girl Rihanna sported a sports bra and jacquard-knit tights ensemble and this look is perfect for those who don't mind a daring yet super casual get up. I like how she kept it simple by pairing the look with classic New Balance sneakers and stayed true to her style by wearing a body chain. Her signature red lip was the icing on the cake as well. 

Although I wasn't able to purchase anything from the collection I can't wait to see what other looks everyone has in store! What do you guys think about this partnership between Alexander Wang and H&M?

Metamorphosis: Behind the Scenes

Hey guys!

So first and foremost I'd like to apologize for my lack of blog posting lately. My life has been super hectic because all of the responsibilities that were placed on me. This semester I have two leadership positions and one of them being the President of the fashion organization near and dear to my heart, The Fashion Executives. I am so glad to say that I was actually there when the organization was actually being created and to see it grow/ be in its second year on campus is beyond me.

So it has been established that every Fall semester that TFE will put on our annual Fashion Expo at USF. It's a large fashion show that has multiple designers, models, and is not only open to USF students but also to the Tampa Bay Community. Being that I have been President since January, I already knew to prepare myself in the back of my mind to get ready to be in charge of such a large show.

So my team and I planned like crazy since the summer! My detail oriented and extreme planning skills definitely came into play. The show's name was called Metamorphosis and the theme was showcasing the light and dark of society. I'll post a few photographs below:

After being in charge of planning Metamorphosis I learned so many necessary skills that will be utilized in the future for my fashion event planning business. I honestly enjoyed creating the concept, gathering designers/models/artists, and ensuring that the show would run smoothly. Did I forget to mention that our show was great?! As a student organization on campus we were very proud that we had around 200 guests in attendance, 7 vendors, 6 designers/boutique owners, and over 25 models. Not to sound like I'm bragging but I rather be positive in regards to our show opposed to a few others (no shade intended). 

I honestly can't wait to finalize everything else that The Fashion Executives will have in store! I have to say it did get stressful and overwhelming (but who doesn't enjoy fashion related stress LOL) Although my term as president is almost over I could say that it was one of the best decisions I could have made in my life.
