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.
