I Miss You

Thanks to Neil from Roweandesign I have been informed of a great online boutique called 25park. http://www.25park.com/ sells great peices of clothing from a vast selection of designers, including, Antik Batik, Behnaz Sarafpour, Malene Birger, Elizabeth and James, Gryphon, Karta, Michael Kors, Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti, Ports 1961, and Vena Cava, just to name a few. While browsing the website I came across must have pieces, that I would buy if I had the money, from Gryphon, beautiful Elizabeth and James pieces, and casual wear from Mike & Chris. There is a great selection of clothing for putting together the ultimate Summer outfit. I found many ethnic and cultural references in the clothing and lots of sequins!! (I'm glad sequins haven't gone out of style yet) AND! I found Your Slip Is Showing, which I will definitely be checking out. What a great idea it is! Buy a slip with a creative bottom that peeks out beneath a dress or skirt, instantly you have a new dress!

Not only is this a great site to shop from, it is charitable. 25Park supports the R Baby Foundation which helps in the fight against infant mortality. More information on the R Baby Foundation can be found at http://www.rbabyfoundation.org/

The VIP services on the site are helpful as well. Consult the 25 Park experts if searching for the perfect dress for your sister's wedding or a graduation party, they'll hook you up with some great ideas!!! The website recently just added a blog. The blog, which is nicely organized, keeps the reader up to date with the lastest news in fashion, music, travel, photography, and events. Make sure to check it out.

Really do check out this site. I know I sound like a broken record advertisement, but it really is a pretty cool on-line boutique. I went through the entire website and picked out my favorites to show my fellow bloggers!

So check out the site! Moving off of 25 park; I'm really disappointed that my camera is broken. I really like my outfit today! I'm wearing black Cheap Monday skinny jeans, a pink tank, a navy and leather zip up vest over the top and a chain/diamond necklace. It has kind of a biker vibe. Oh! Red lipstick of course.

Have a great week everyone.

Lots of athletics this week have left me sore and sunburned :( I know this is no excuse, but I haven't really felt up to the challenge of dressing up. All I've worn the past two days is shorts/sweats/tees. BORING, I know. Luckily today will be my last day of field hockey camp!!!!!!! Quite the celebration.

My current music obsession is with the song Beth...

My camera is still broken and I have yet to buy a new one. Therefore, all of the pictures in my outfit posts are old, but ones that I haven't posted.
This outfit I wore to perform a solo at a school concert.

silk tank from New York and Company, vintage black skirt, shoes from charlotte rouse

Have a great weekend everyone!

Go outside and enjoy the sunshine :)

Remember The Time

I recently returned from a wonderful trip with chorus to New Orleans, the "Big Easy." The trip, which I expected to be a bore, was a grand success. Not only did I enjoy trips to Bubba Gumps Shrimp Company Restaurant, the Insectatarium, the Bayou (wild alligators were an arm's length away), shopping at the French Market, walking along the beautiful antique streets, and beignets with cafe au lait for brekke, but friendships were created that will last a lifetime. In addition to all of these lovely things, I was granted the opportunity to sing in a beautiful cathedral (the oldest cathedral in the United States), in a concert directed by the prestigious Bob Chilcott of Britain. He was an inspiration. Fortunately the song my choir toured with was a song called, "No More Silence," in which I sing a soulful chesty solo that I adore. I was honored to be able to sing in front of Mr. Chilcott.
Some pictures from the trip.

And then...the camera broke :( It was very sad. I couldn't take any pictures for the rest of the entire trip AND I have no recent outfit photos. Luckily, I have many backups in store :)
Have a great week everyone!
