Time Machine

So I recently was passed down this Sears Electric Type Writer, by my lovely grandmother. I had been intrigued by them for sometime now. I love the concept that this was a start to computers and this is the branch that held the fruit for engineering of the desktop. I have always been in love with the past, and all its niftiness. Like film the look and grain of the picture is more intriguing then a I-phone picture. So when it comes to writing, I like how personal a hand written letter is. There is more thought and effort and its your own lettering and not the basic blocky letters. then to take a step away from the computer and look at something before its time is something a little less distracting. A more intimate way of writing, with no pop ups of Facebook messages, like when you decide to look at Facebook you become side tracked. With the type writer your taking your thoughts by grasp each second they are handed to you, your writing becomes more focused. I cant tell you how many papers I had gotten back with you seemed to have lost interest through the middle. Yeah because well I was online shopping during half of it. So I am going to venture down my grandparents and parents memory lane and maybe learn something or find something interesting.

As you can see a little bit of dust has been piled up but I won’t allow that to happen as I will be venturing a new outlet of writing.

He Loves Me He Loves Me Not

I purchased two palettes from forever 21, a Flower Child pallet and a Natural Palette. The natural pallet reminded me of how the naked palette from Urban decay is set up. I thought well eight dollars verses fifty so I thought Id give it a go. So far I do like it, in comparison to the naked palette pretty much you get the quality of what you pay for.

I love the Daisies and the name is what caught my eye- FLOWER CHILD

This is the color Palette for the flower child, so in comparison to the natural one it is very versatile being able to bring your look from day to night.

The right kind of brushes really determinate’s the outcome of your makeup and brushes are best to have a blended more professional look. I love when I get a new purse and am able to buy all new makeup and little gadgets to go inside. Its like going to school on the first day and all the preparation you just want all new things. My purse will have its first debut soon ( I’ts first day of school-life on the streets) very soon. So spruce up your bathroom drawers or makeup bags with some cutesy items. We are changing seasons so ladies please do some spring cleaning.

       This spring Denim on Denim was a huge hit on the runway, so make room in your closet. Or dare to be bold with the same fabrication/ matchy- matchy look. Like in a painting you need a light source and shadowing, thats what I think you see here a dark wash and light wash denim to give it more of an eye catching flare. Never mind Britney Spears mistake of showing up to the red carpet with Justine Timberlake in 2001, we both know that was a no no.

We forgive you Brittany.

 

Below is some Spring 2014 runway Fashions

But fashion goers moved past that and realized the top designers showcased Denim on Denim on the runways. And did a much better styling job. 

Plaid is fab

This is a basic look, a casual ensemble. Its a basic blue jean and blue plaid look. I love being able to take a button up look to a relaxed wrapped around the waist look. I like how fashionable something so basic and simple can be, and comfortable. 

 

 

Wanderlust

The following film was created by Morgan Jennings.
“Passion Pitt Take a walk.”

Morgan Jennings is a student at Scad Savannah, also my best friend who created this film. She is studying Fashion Merchandising at her time at scad. She will be transferring to the atlanta campus soon for a change of scenery. She is very talented and business like minded, so its a great career path for her. She has a great sense of style, and I love how she always puts together really cool high fashion grudge looks. So to conclude this fashion film is a prime example to showing her styling and art concepts.This was filmed at a local park in our hometown. It was a fun film and an over all relaxed feel. I hope you enjoy.

   We started are adventure at Goodwill and looked for something that caught our eye. We went dressed relaxed in a homeless/ boho look, a very relaxed comfortable look. Always best for shopping because your in comfortable shoes so you can shop till you drop and defiantly more convent for trying on garments. I always keep in mind anything can be cute, if paired and accessorized the right way. I came out of goodwill today with some high wasted white jean Chicos, I cant wait to rock them.

Then we went to locally own thrift shops and antique boutiques, where we Discovered this great vintage satchel in wonderful shape. As well as some high waisted Levis to cut into shorts for the summer and possibly bleach them, will see where the wind takes us.

To end our shopping day on a sweet note we went to Gabriel’s for lunch and dessert. Today was a success and might I add how fashionably cute my mom looks with her J crew style going on. Theres a cool story behind the restaurant owners, heres a snip it of their story on their page:

“Since 1989, Johnnie Gabriel has been in the business of baking. It could be said that Johnnie’s talent for cooking and baking is genetic, with one of America’s favorite cooks, Paula Deen, as her cousin. But Johnnie’s baking career did not begin as a conscious choice.

She along with husband, Ed, began baking on nights and weekends to supplement their income during the tough times, a recession and college tuition bills can bring. Johnnie had watched her mother and grandmother bake desserts and cook meals for their family, and reasoned that she too could make enough cakes to make a difference.”
