Monochromatic for the Maximalist

For whatever reason, I’ve had a new color–or lack thereof–obsession this season: beige. The muted color is quite overlooked at times, but I can assure you that wearing it will not make you fall flat. In fact, the skin-toned hue is the perfect clothing staple for emulating natural beauty and provides the perfect opportunity forContinue reading “Monochromatic for the Maximalist”

White House Wear

Feeling the rustling of leaves under my oxfords, marveling at the historical delights of one of the most established part of the United States, having the opportunity to Video Chat Snowden, meet Bob Woodward, and walk through the White House… these are the surreal moments I experienced while in Washington D.C. during the Associated CollegeContinue reading “White House Wear”

Fashion From the Fourth

How did I celebrate my Independence this Fourth of July? In the most poetic way possible: I left Britain for America, and am still trying to figure out how to be emotionally independent from Britain, where my heart still resides (study abroad withdrawals, are quite real). With that being said, I do love America withContinue reading “Fashion From the Fourth”

Jumpsuit Up!

We are living in the twenty-first century my friends. This is the era of technology and social equality, that equality including women’s rights. Yes, I am talking about a call for equivalent pay in the work force, but also the right to wear clothes that are less conventionally feminine. The “who’s wearing the pants” sayingContinue reading “Jumpsuit Up!”

Notting Hill

This weekend, my fabulous friend (and one of my roommates) Rebekah and I travelled just two short stops on the tube to Notting Hill (yes, the same one in the movie with the ever so endearing Hugh Grant and the too perfect for words Julia Roberts). As I had not seen the movie before, weContinue reading “Notting Hill”

San Fran Style

I’ve not only left my heart in San Francisco, but my heart practically lives in San Francisco and may never come back. Next to London, San Francisco is my favorite city of all time. Since childhood, I have visited that city time and time again, always discovering something more new, more intriguing. And as usual,Continue reading “San Fran Style”

Coffee With a Side of Cognition

Studying for finals while studying abroad in London is like the carriage in Cinderella turning back into a pumpkin. One minute, you’re staring at a photography exhibit for Julia Margaret Cameron at the Victorian and Albert Museum, and the next your computer screen, creating an outline for your British History essays. The reality is, studyingContinue reading “Coffee With a Side of Cognition”

Style in the Springs: Palm Springs That Is!

Sometimes, adventures are only a car ride away. California is full of uniquely cool locations to visit, and Palm Springs happens to be one of them! While Palm Springs is a desert, it is no dry place to visit from an entertainment perspective! Whether tourists escape to this vacation spot to lounge their troubles awayContinue reading “Style in the Springs: Palm Springs That Is!”

Opposites

Everyone has their opposite—there’s a night to day, a yin to yang, and a Chereen to Kristin. Like any opposing forces, my cousin Chereen and I came into the world around the same time—well okay she is ten months older than me (but close enough!). Anyway, from the moment we could talk, the two ofContinue reading “Opposites”

Flashback Fashion: Nineties

The phrase “That was so twenty years ago” was so twenty years ago. It has gone out of style because trends from various decades are in once again! Recently, the nineties have made a comeback, and I for one am all for it! As a nineties kid, I have a claim to a wonderful eraContinue reading “Flashback Fashion: Nineties”
