The Perfect Polish

I am getting my nails done today at 3 with Christine. Isn't so hard to pick out the right color? I usually regret my decision after. There are just too many colors to choose from! And do you want a metallic sparkly one or a matte shiny one? Should you go classic with a light pink or beige or trendy and edgy with a blue or green? I just cannot decide! I will let you know the outcome.

UPDATE: So what did I choose? Shim-mery Chic by OPI. It is a metallic dark taupe with multi colored sparkles. It is different and trendy but still very neutral and traditional. I really like it! What do you think?

The Gag-ster

All of my friends can tell you that I love Lady Gaga. I was even her this year for Halloween, complete with leotard, leather jacket, heels, over the top hair accessory, and rhinestone encrusted glasses (which I am proud to say I made!). And I will give you, she is a bit off her rocker, but I still love her. The first couple of times I saw her in pictures I thought “who is this girl?” but now I have a huge appreciation for whom she is, herself. But what is so incredible about her is the look she creates. One thing I love about her style is - the girl never wears pants. Maybe once in a while she will thrown on a pair, but she sticks to leotards and body suits. She will step out in 20 degree freezing weather in a leather leotard, tights, and sky high heels, now that is fashion dedication.

Have you seen her new video for “Bad Romance”? The fashion is incredible. Everything is straight off the runway. Alexander McQueen has created incredible visual statements in his Spring/Summer 2010 collection, which Lady Gaga totally pulls off. I love the sequined dress/body suit that goes right into those elephant looking 10 inch heels. There are other secrets to this video as well. In the first scene Gaga’s glasses are made out of razors, what a fashion risk! However, I am partial to the tamed down night on the town Gaga. I love that she rocks her looks with such pride and doesn’t care what people think. Something all of us fashionistas can aspire to be.

First Blog!

Instead of studying for the final I have tomorrow I decided to create a blog. This will be a fab adventure into my thoughts on fashion. I love everything fashion. From clothes, shoes, jewelry to the sales planning and trend forecasting that goes behind closed doors of our favorite brands. My world also pretty much revolves around fashion. I am an Apparel Merchandising student at Indiana University (shout out to my fave apparel girl and partner in crime Christine!) where I learn the ins and outs of the retail industry. This past summer I also had an internship at Nordstrom where I made some incredible friends (Sarah and Molly, you should follow their blogs slave2fashion and southern belle fashionista) and got a taste of what it is like to work for a major corporation. So now, I am about to graduate in May and I am going through the trials and tribulations of looking for a job. But I probably should go back to studying. More to come about what trends I am obsessing over and how hard it is to break into the fashion industry... Who's ready?!
