Roots –What I Learned While Dressing Like a Haute Couture Model

Going back to one’s roots is audaciously grounding. As Americans, we prioritize the idea of individuality while other cultures seem to value connection—a connection between people, a connection to nature, a connection to past and present. What we sometimes fail to realize is that by connecting, we are actually doing a service to ourselves asContinue reading “Roots –What I Learned While Dressing Like a Haute Couture Model”

The patchwork coat – the chic list

Dolly Parton once wrote song about a “coat of many colors.” Well today, I have composed for you an ode to a coat of many patterns. This is my tribute to the patchwork coat, a conversation piece that feels and looks like a bedspread when you put it on but is totally acceptable to strutContinue reading “The patchwork coat – the chic list”

A Case for Extending ‘Christmas Colors’ Beyond Christmas

Ah Christmas…a time of merriment: The scents of gingerbread and pine leaves in the air, heartwarming music and a blur of red and green has passed by too soon. But perhaps there is a way to extend some of the Christmas magic beyond the “acceptable” timeline. I am proposing here on the blog to extendContinue reading “A Case for Extending ‘Christmas Colors’ Beyond Christmas”

How to Style a T-shirt As an Overdresser

She exists. She’s the dreamer, but also the doer. She shows up and hopes to make a statement in the process. She’s in all of us–that girl who likes to dress up and be equal parts intelligence and elegance. That girl is innate in my personal identity. And that is why the majority of theContinue reading “How to Style a T-shirt As an Overdresser”

A Very Krischic Christmas: What I Wore

Merry Christmas to all! There is nothing I love more than the merriment of the holiday season: being surrounded by loved ones, filling one’s belly with the savory and sweet delights of a delectable Christmas food spread across the table and filling one’s heart with the classical Christmas carols and Christmas films. As you mayContinue reading “A Very Krischic Christmas: What I Wore”

Valentino and the Nutcracker Ballet

With only four days until Christmas, I have been practicing some favorite family traditions: watching the nutcracker ballet, drinking festive coffee drinks, and watching too many Christmas movies to count (Anything from Beauty and the Beast and the Enchanted Christmas to Elf). Nothing warms my soul like the Christmas season and getting to celebrate Christ’sContinue reading “Valentino and the Nutcracker Ballet”

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”

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”

Vienna

Next stop on the Travel Weekend trip? Vienna, Austria! When I thought my five-day travel weekend could not get any more magical, my friends and I boarded the train departing from Prague to Vienna. The train allowed for three hours of complete serenity and solitude, an opportunity to reflect on the beauty of the writtenContinue reading “Vienna”

I’d like to thank you all for reading my work; fashion brings me so much joy and I hope this platform about my personal fashion choices has brought you joy! I’ve always been in love with fashion: the artContinue reading “The Best Is Yet to Come”
