I just met Tim Gunn...
As I sat there sketching at The Annex, a man yells "five minutes left" and turns off the lights. I start packing in the dark. It was another late night at school. As I exit towards the main door, Tim Gunn props the door for me as I quickly approach him. At first I didn't recognize who he was until he turned around with a bright smile across his face. I was shocked. Infatuated. I had met someone who has always been an idol to me!
Thereafter, I asked if I could take a photo with him and he was happy to oblige... I ended up taking a selfie with him, but I'm sooooo glad someone had asked if they would take the photo for me cause I think this photo turned out better.
I'm in love. Sorry boys, I'm going gay.

Here's Saturday nights ensemble for Passport to Glendale hosted by Yelp and Joon Shabu Shabu! This was my very first Yelp event so I was a bit nervous. I didn't know what to expect, but I wanted to make a good impression overall so I went with my little black dress and my go-to (comfortable) strappy heels from Zigi Soho! I didn't want to walk into the place face-planting on the floor or walk like a tight-rope walker with their arms straight as if they are trying to grasp an imaginary rail. Good thing that they're so comfortable that I could walk in them all day! Ended up pairing them up with gold accessories--three simple chains with a porcelain cat, a charm with floral detailing, and the Pink Victoria Secret dog with a peace sign. Oh and a few rings here and there on each hand. All minimal, but sometimes that says a lot!
Thanks for stopping by and see you next time my loves!!! :)<3

By SHE, I mean Stephanie S.!
We were set to meet up at 11:00-11:15 before our class at noon but my teacher took extra time to go over my flats for CAD. Let's just say, I got a lot to do this weekend for that class. ='(
I frantically ran (well, more like took the elevators because of my big duffle bag) and immediately introduced myself as I walked up to this positive girl with a warm, energetic vibe emitting from her direction. We clicked, like that--*snap my finger* What's even more interesting? Social media brought us together. ;)
As we walked along the hallway, I had to think quick as to where to shoot. I saw that she was wearing black and white. Simple. Clean. Two of my favorite colors to wear? How did she know? She didn't, but talk about knowing what I like! After checking Stephanie out, I knew immediately that I wanted to shoot in the stairwell at our school.
The stairwell? Well, you'll see...
Stephanie's got some mad shoe game. When she told me they were ASH wedges, I about died. I've been wanting a pair of the Isabel Marants but those run up to $650+ and momma ain't got that money. Unless if I'm hustlin' on those sketches, but even so, I'd probably have to sacrifice a lung for those wedges. I mean, any smokers looking for a fresh young lung? Blood type O, free of any toxins, non-smoker... Anyone? Anyone? ;)
First time I ever saw ASH wedges it was on my plane ride back to L.A. from Denver. She was minimal but her shoes added that edge to her look. Oh and the quality and detail of ASH wedges, especially the side zipper detailing on Steph's kicks? Ahh..so envious of you Stephanie--I know you are reading this!

Meet Alexis W., my wild child.
I met this girl, along with Simone, at orientation. Lookin' like a bunch of goofballs not knowing what to do, we sat all the way in the back, like (hot and sexy) losers, chit chatting and introducing to one another. Alexis is straight up from Hawaii. She studied math and decided that it wasn't for her and pursued her dreams of costume designing! I'm glad she ditched crunching numbers and solving problems to do what she's passionate about. I specifically remember at orientation, the school gave every student a stack of papers and a pen to fill out the forms. Of course, with my luck, they forgot to give me a writing utensil, but this girl, sitting to my right, was kind enough to lend me hers... (Yeah, THANKS Simone! - haha kidding). But seriously, who knew that orientation would lead to me finding some of the hottest girls on campus? I'm starting to think I'm a chick magnet... lol. Love you girls!
