NY Bound pt 2...

Tuesday's adventure...

*Don't cheat, make sure you check out the pics on pt.1  :)

Tuesday morning we were all exhausted. I don't know how truck drivers do it??? So Tuesday morning we were on the road at 7a... Texas time. Unfortunately we didn't account for the time change that would happen that evening, which caused us to arrive very late to our hotel that evening. Anyhow, since we were residing on the outskirts of Missouri/Illinois, we had to take advantage of seeing the legendary arch. If you ever go to Illinois... which is even better then Missouri, simply cause it's gorgeous and has so much history to view... GO SEE THE ARCH!








Love the streets :)


St. Louis



My dad and I on the steps... far far away :)


Just to give you somewhat of an idea of how wide it is in comparison to me.... I kinda felt like Rocky being on those steps. How does that song go??? You know your humming it in your head right now :)




These doors were so little and cute!


Very crowded. Actually, I kinda felt sick after being in there. 



From the top!












When you reach the very top of the arch, this is how you look out. If your claustrophobic... well, beware.


Very steep going down and coming up



After your done with the Arch, go check out the Luis and Clark museum





I have no idea what that wheel was used for? Surly it can't be a steering wheel... there's no way?!





Check it out!!! A Texas Road House in Ohio! I did see another one, but I don't remember what state it was in?



Such an enjoyable ride. We went through Columbus, Oh. which wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't 5 o'clock traffic. It's like Dallas traffic, but worse. Ex: it doesn't matter if you can't exit for that lane anymore, people still do it. Fortunately it was really cloudy, so the drive was even better. Unfortunately St. Louis was the only site seeing we were able to do that day. We did wanna go see Gettysburg, but unfortunately there wasn't enough time. I just LOVE this area! Once we hit Pennsylvania, it was gorgeous! Lots of old towns, driving through tunnels, very hilly, curvy and trees that seem to go on forever. We finally reached our destination at midnight. It wasn't hard to pass out. Gas wasn't nearly as expensive the second day, but if you do drive this route set aside the same amount of money.

Welcome Back lizsewnyc.

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…

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.
Burberry
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…
