Disappeared. Away. Now back, for sometime.

Oh my god, what a year it was for me. It's almost going to be a year that I moved to New York and it doesn't really feel like it. And when I realised it I sat down and thought about what I had done in this past year. Well, I had done quite a few minus the blogging part. The summer was spent trying to figure out the Big Apple, the heat and the humid, the people, the subways, and the work ethics. Spring was spent running for classes, doing projects, homeworks, and other stuff. And now winter is coming to an end. But I should tell you, it was quite a productive year. Although I soaked myself with school and work and other stuff with not much time for social endeavors, I'm honestly content that I jumped right into the pace of this city. There definitely has been a lot of personal growth and change in the way I see things. It's a good change. 

Being a fashion student is fun and tough, in many different ways. It surprises you, it inspires you, it challenges you and at times, it questions you of who and what you are and what you want to become. It totally relies on you whether you want to undress yourself of all the things you are and transform into a different person, pretend/fake it or carry it all on your back and show them the different shades of color you can bring into the room. I don't know whether this makes sense to any of you but apparently, I don't know how else to phrase/rephrase it. 

I know I've been lagging behind in this world. I was busy moving forward in the outside world. 
The pictures are from the past few weeks of winter; chronologically set.
I've been carrying around my friend Zhou's Nikon D3000 and taking pictures, not of all things that struck me so far. I haven't challenged myself that far. Sooner or later, I will. I hope I will. I want to hope I will.

Thanks Zhou. 
Wish you all a happy new year. I hope all of you are continuing to do what you love and are making the most of what you have. There is no time to lazy around and do 'nothing'. Life is fast and you need to walk faster to keep up. 
Time to run now. See you in the other post.

Some instagram shots! 

     Ladies and gentlemen, how is everybody doing? First of all, let me clarify that I've not been a lazy bum or vanished into thin air. I've been busy organising my new life in the big city and getting a lot of plans and goals ticked off of my to-do-list. Second of all, thank you for coming back to this place time and again to look for any new post. I may have been away but I've been checking the stats and each time I saw the numbers escalating, I felt a pang of guilt for being unable to make the time. 
Now that I've accomplished certain aspects of my goals, I'm back in the game (when was I ever gone?) and have a lot of great things to share with you.
I'm apparently dividing my time between school and work and all the other things in life. It's a constant walking race for me every hour at school with my each lecture a couple of buildings away, all at opposite sides of the college; getting to every lecture in the nick of time. But I love the pace in which everything is materialising. 

So much with my personal updates... 

Well well well, New York Fashion Week was just over and the industry's already wrapped up London Fashion Week and caught the next flight to Milan. I just went through the SS13 Gucci show that opened the Milan FW and it was an orgy of gorgeousness. Simplicity with a little bit of provocativeness (thanks to the bareback) did it for Gucci this time. The colours were so vibrant it could wake me up during my Opera class, haha. You know I meant that in a good way right? Why am I even judging your sense of humor? Very 60s and 70s inspired and the idea of dressing in one colour from head-to-toe would be very interesting to see in the upcoming season. No mix and match next year cues Giannini. Lots of frills, ruffles going around the sleeves across the shoulders and tunics with trousers, that's going to be fun. I particularly liked the look with corals clustered around the neckline on a crisp white gown. The fact that the stones were embellished on a white fabric makes it all the more appealing. It evoked purity and sensuality for me.

Now that Summer's almost over, it's time to re-organise your closet and get those coats and tweeds out of the shelves or from the back of your closet. 'Tis going to be my first winter in NYC and frankly speaking I was in a way not looking forward to the hyper cool temperatures; being a snow-monger. BUT, looking at the stylish winter collections some stores have started to promote, I'm in a way able to shake that thought off of my head. But I still choose to remain a snow-monger. 

Have a beautiful Friday and a relaxing weekend. Squeeze the last remaining summer fun, until it's officially over. I'm going to enjoy some sunshine too.
