nothing like a good pleat!

i'm obsessed with pleats this season. luckily for me i found a treasure at the beginning of this year. when i was searching for my graduation dress, i was looking for the perfect dress that i could wear even after my grad, something i could dress up and dress down with. and so i looked everywhere around CT when i finally convinced myself to go to access park, i was so happy i did it. because i found my treasure at jahaan and on SALE!! a pleated, shear, off white beauty. i also found a maxi white pleated skirt last week, (how lucky) which i will hopefully take shots of his weekend.

recently i went to go take shots at the beach, and one of the looks i did was of this dress, but in a more laid back kinda vibe. so let me share with you the looks. i also want to show you how i wore the dress at my grad.hope you guys like

fyi: in these pics, i look like i cut my hair, but its just tied back, it looks weird, but i like it. maybe i should cut my hair, what do you guys think?

blogger focus: Luvette

meet Sarah Tanya Mwamwetta she is an  Art Director Graphic Designer and  Blogger and right now interning at Elle magazine. im obsessed with her blog, the day i found it, was the day i looked at the art of dressing in a whole new light. only one other blogger has had this kind of effect on me, and that is karla. these two ladies have showed me how to work with what i have in their differrent ways.

her blog is called luvette, and its amazing. her style is a bit boho with a twist, she perfects the art of layering to the tee, and loves mixing vintage with more classic pieces, no one does it like her. she takes risks, and let me tell you they pay off.
