Vaster your dreams and your hopes into it
Everything you used to know is gone
And you’re slipping into in your own
Hello All! Sorry that this is, like, a week late, but here’s what I wore on New Year’s! This dress has an interesting story; I found it at a lovely little boutique while in Saratoga Springs, NY called Piper. But at $94 it was out of my budget fashionista’s price range. I was disheartened, but flash forward three months as I’m on my mother’s couch scoping out a local boutique’s post-Christmas 50% off sale and what do I find? The Jack by BB Dakota beauty for a mere $40. I grabbed my layers and bolted to Calico in New Bedford and snagged that beauty up! It clearly was fate, as I eventually found the dreamy dress, which fits like a glove at a price even I can afford!
So I wore my new dress for the New Year’s celebration, paired with mixed metals and sky high wedges. I hung out with as many of my closest friends as possible, so I was in great company as I kicked butt at Cards Against Humanity before kissing my beau, and BFF, at midnight!

I’m excited for 2014; 2013 was an exceptional time for me and I couldn’t be more excited (and slightly scared) for the upcoming year.
How was your new years!? What are your resolutions!?

The end of the work and school week called for a relaxing night out. Eliza (my roommate) and I decided to get dressed up nice and go to our favorite local bar, Sweet Ups. We definitely took many pictures, but they’re somehow misssing now, so please excuse the cell phone images.

I was lucky enough to score tickets to the Alice + Olivia Fashion Week Presentation…I brought my really good friend from school, Rachel. We got all dressed up and headed over to the West Side for the show (after completely MOWWING some Chipotle).
We get there and immediately walk into a red carpet event, much more than I was expecting. Guests were dressed to the T, drinks by Hypnotiq were served, and models handed out Altoids Smalls. Rachel and I hung around the entrance first to scope out the other guests who were all arriving and doing the whole press thing. Guests included Denise Richards, Elisabeth Moss (from Mad Men), Nicky Hilton, Nina Garcia, and many more.
In between checking out the other attendees, we grabbed a few drinks; Hypnotiq with blueberries and vodka, champagne, and a number of other fruity beverages were served for the guests.
After our star gazing we went to the back of the venue, where the collection was on a still life display of live models. The dresses were stunning; lacey Grecian styles, victorian and vintage inspired…the colors were creams and whites, perfect for spring. The more casual designs were fun. I’m in love with the burnt orange floral dress that looks like it belongs on a 50’s housewife. Other retro throwback styles included huge belled bottoms, long pleated skirts, and midriff baring tops. Accessory wise, I loved the use of the colored over sized glasses on a couple of the models.
The entire thing was quite an experience, including the live entertainment. The Pierces, Amanda Blank, and DJ Mia Moretti all performed…
Now for some self aggrandizing…
