How To Survive Finals Week (Without Looking Like it)+DIYs

I know most of you are in the same boat as me right now I have Regents, SAT subject tests, and finals all packed into June. These hectic last couple of weeks makes it difficult to juggle studying and free time, and almost impossible to look presentable on top of that. Of course no one is going to care what you look like on most days, but I know I don't want to look like I just rolled out of bed (even if I did). In order to overcome this challenge here are a few tips and tricks to have a slightly above average finals week.

The Fanny Pack Revolution

Whenever I think of a fanny pack I think of a mom at a garage sale, it may be because that is the only time my mom ever wore a fanny pack. But as I delve further into the different styles that have been created for this year's runway there is so much more to work with. It is no longer just limited to the basic black canvas material there is so much more colors, styles, fabrics, etc. that make it a lot more user friendly.  

But with their frightening past it can still be hard to know how to style. So follow these few tips and you will be sure to rock the world with your classy not trashy fanny pack.

The Melting Pot of Fashion

Growing up in New York (A.K.A. the melting pot) I have been exposed to so many different cultures. Having this opportunity is such a blessing and has allowed me to explore what else is beyond my personal bubble. When the Met Gala came along, one of my favorite fashion events, this year's theme sent a spark running through my veins. The theme was China:Through the looking glass and the outfits certainly didn't disappoint. But why stop at China? Plenty of other cultures have influenced our clothing today in beautiful ways.

The Desirables of April

Happy 20th Blog Post! For my twentieth blog post I wanted to do something a little different so I am going to do my April favorites, essentially the fashion pieces I have been loving this April. 

Big Chunky Boyfriend Sweater      
It is actually a little embarrassing how much I wore this sweater, but that doesn't mean I am going to stop. I bought this sweater from forever 21 after a year long search for the perfect oversized cardigan.  It is a thicker knit that helped keep me warm throughout the winter under my down jacket and now in the warmer months I wear it on its own.  The cream color makes it super easy to pair with any style, color, or pattern.
