Lies My Weatherman Told Me

Excuses for infrequent posting:
-College application essays
(can't wait 'till I'm done with theseee!)
-Lack of a feeling of creativity
-More college apps
-Photobucket hates me (ARGH MY BANDWIDTH EXCEEDED)
-Modeling:

I was outrageously fortunate to have the opportunity to model in a local fashion event called
Mass Appeal in which I donned a piece from the line Dazzle Me Formal & was made to look totally badass (I couldn't help but think of YSL fall 2008 when they gave me black lipstick).

Since Buffalo isn't really a center for fashion like, oh say, Toronto (only 2 hours away!), it has been really hard for me to find consistent modeling work even though I have an agency & I've worked with many photographers in the area. Modeling has been an amazing source of connection to the fashion industry for me, so I can't help but feel a passion and love for a modeling job whenever an opportunity comes my way.

As a born and raised New Yorker having only lived in Buffalo for 4 years now, I was amazed and pleasantly surprised to find out that this event allowed me to see a new side of the Buffalo, one that I hadn't thought existed. I mean, Buffalo isn't exactly a fashion mecca, but it's full of creative, fashionable, diverse and realistic people when it comes to style. Oh, and did I mention that Adam Lippes of ADAM is from these parts? All-in-all, I met some wonderful people, got to spread news of my blog a bit, party it out, and managed to not smudge my black lipstick in the process.

By the way, you should check out my awesome friend Matt's blog 'cause he's cool & can rock a black bar on his eye like nobody's business.

In other news...
The weather we are experiencing here is totally not normal for November usually by now we're getting a little bit of snow or it's at least below 50º but it's been in the high 50's-60's lately I'm certainly not complaining :]

It's amazing what a few pins will do to a crappy acrylic hat :]

  9. your hat is super fly. I dig over embellishing things with badges, it is a bit of a weakness of mine
    And omg your face reminds me of mine. It may just be that we have the same hair. Honestly, your hair cut is exacty the same as mine about a year ago, but I'm trying desperately to grow it out.
    You make a fabulous model (haha this is now totally vain in regards to my previous comment). But seriously, you look so fab in those photos.
