Imma update you!!!!

I'm leaving for school tomorrow, and I am so happy to say that I'm slightly more excited than nervous!!
I was so worried that with my short summer I wasn't going to get to see some of my bestest friends and visit some cool places that I've always taken for granted, like the MET, but I did!

Since it is a new school year, I'm thinking a few changes!
-cool pics from a Lower East Side street fashion show
-secrets reveal in "dear diary" for the first post really soon
-college life
-more piccs
-and although black is my favorite color, a new more colorful layout!

so yea.

Kira Plastina

I have a new obsession with this blog, The Fashion Herald. It's basically all about the shopping on 34th street Herald square. The writer did a series of post on the new Kira Plastinina store on 34th street, and it was then that I found out that she had another store in NYC.
I've been to her first store in SoHo, it's where I got my dress ($59) for a dinner/award ceremony I attended last May.

I love the store, and next to Victoria's Secret, it's the most beautiful store I've been to. With the pink and white walls and closets, the girly logo, the ubiquitous hearts, the candies from Dylan's Candy bar, the colorful clothes and accessories, the store, in Kira Plastinina's (from CosmoGirl!) own words truly feels like "every girl's fantasy closet". However, I must add, despite all the pink, the clothes and accesories are pretty edgy.

the details on the dress, the bow is detachable, the belt ($11), also Kira Plastinina, doesn't come with the dress.

so yea.
I wore it with red pumps, no belt and no visible bra straps to the dinner.

I finally got a chance to see the SUPERHEROES exhibit at the Met last Monday.
Yes, the museum is closed to the public on Mondays, but I have a friend, Vlad, who works there and he was nice enough to take me and to give me a tour of the first floor and the roof.
The exhibit is amazing, and they had actual costumes such as Linda Carter's Wonder Woman, Christian Bale's Batman, Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man, Michelle Pfeiffer's Cat Woman, Tobey Maguire's Spider man and even the little bits in Rebecca Romjin's Mystique.
I wish I could take pictures because the designers , including Jean Paul Gautier, Moschino, and Alexander Mcqueen did an awesome job. The details of every costume is just fantastic.
If you live in the NYC area, I recommend seeing it and many other exhibits, although my friend told me every exhibit is always crowded.
and I got to use the exit that celebreties exit in...
so yea.
Speaking of the Met, I'm so excited for Gossip Girl to return!

NYC, I'm back!!<3

've realized that i've had this blog for a year now (started Aug 7th of last year)
The school, HWS(Hobart and William Smith Colleges) is gorgeous. Everyone was so nice., and I met many cool people, had some really great professors, some really bad food, which I hear gets better during the school year.
It was writing intensive and although I complained a lot, it enhanced my writing skills, and thought me that while I can write a B essay the night before it's due, it takes a whole week of continously working on an essay to get an A.

One thing that I did or didn't do was that I didn't really read fashion blogs. I'll admit, I cheated probably 4 or 5 times and read fashionista and maybe three or four others, but that's a big deal comparing to the 20+ I read everyday. Unfortunately, all the work+facebook+ no laptop=no updates. So, the weekend that I got back home was spent catching up with the fashion world.

so yea
and the picture that I promised, (not the best one) me rocking the head band.
