Burberry

I love simplicity. 
For me simplicity says less is more. Which is why I enjoy how the English and Italians dress, or the elegant renderings of Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, and Balenciaga. 
Since I work at Burberry, I feel that it is more then appropriate to make this next chapter about the place that I work at... Burberry. 
Let me give you a background check...
-Thomas Burberry established his business in 1856. -He focused on outerwear in the beginning.  -He invented the weave Gabardine, which is what a majority of our trench coats are made of.
-Gabardine was patented in 1888.

There's even a fabulous short film they've created to demonstrate what Burberry has done:

Of course what makes me love Burberry the most, is that ICONIC trench coat. 

When you put on our trench coat, you can feel the difference. 
-You feel like a million bucks. -Everyone looks good in a trench coat.  -You can wear it for any occasion. 
I can't tell you how I know about the Burberry trench coat, it&…

Fashion Fridays: Funny Face

Funny Face & Givenchy


For those of you who are not familiar with the movie Funny Face, it is about: An impromptu fashion shoot at a book store that brings about a new fashion model discovery in the shop clerk. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050419/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
Of course my favorite thing about this movie are the clothes. *girl daydreaming. I actually created a Bridal collection based off of the dress pictured above. It was my inspiration. 



These costumes in Funny Face had grace, structure, design, and elegance. What makes these clothes so stunning is that Hubert de Givenchy was the costume designer. 
Now when people think of Givenchy, they just think of the name, not the man behind the name. Myself personally, I think of two types of Givenchy: the original and what they are today; grunge fashion. 
This is how you pronounce Givenchy:  jhee-von-shee
Givenchy started his company in 1952, but prior to his start he was already in contact with major Fashion icons. He was recommended by Chris…

Update:

Originally I started this blog to show you what living in New York was like. Five years later I'm living in Florida, and A LOT has changed. How much has changed:

Here's a peek:

-I decided to move back to Texas cause I was homesick, I had accomplished what I set out to do, and I wasn't finding a full time design job.
-I had several different jobs trying to make ends meet.
-I started a pillow business, but quit.
-Put a halt on all things fashion, because I needed a restart.
-Most exciting part, fell madly in love and got married.
-Moved across country, something I said I would never do again.
-I was 27 in 2012 and now I'm 32.

For the past 5 years, I have also been trying to figure out what it is creatively that I like to do... and I'm still trying to figure it out. What I can tell you:

I love...
-Fashion
-Structure
-Drawing
-Design
-Interior design
-Art
-History
-Movies

*LOL I don't think any of that has changed.

In the midst of rediscovering myself I've also been focusin…

Happy Labor Day!

Lately I've been homesick. Close family and friends can vouch for this. I miss Texas and everyone in it like crazy, but then I have a moment like this:


It's not hard for me to fall in love with NYC. All I have to do is walk the streets and it's exactly where I wanna be. There's a reason they sell items that say I love NYC... it's so true!

So because it's Labor Day, and because I'm on a budget, I've decided to see what there is to do in NYC for FREE. Yes that's right folks, I just used the word free and NYC in the same sentence.

Apparently there's quite a bit to do if you look for it, but before we go down that road here's a little catching up on some other great spots.

Joe's Shanghai. Affordable and delicious.


These were seriously the BEST dumplings ever! 

I know they look really creepy weird, but don't even acknowledge it like that or else your missing out on an iconic NY moment.  How you eat them: 1. Place in spoon …
