I love extra large sweaters because they just feel so comfortable and loose. This is a thrifted Ralph Lauren sweater. I was being careless when I wore it before that I got yellow oil paint on it so it has a small amount of stain. Regardless of the situation, I still loved it. I worked on my portfolio tonight and needed to take a break even though I only drew 3 fashion design sketches so I went to my roof and borrowed my sister's tie dyed scarf.

The only thing that really annoys me about this whole college process is completing a portfolio and time management. It seems as though I am always procrastinating and never get things done on time. Hopefully that'll change soon. Last week I checked out FIT at the Suny College Fair, I also visited Parsons this weekend and I'm going to attend a National Portfolio Day sometime next week with School of the Arts Institute of Chicago. Joy.
Focus is what I need at the moment.
It's funny how I actually got this jacket like 5 years ago and yet I'm just wearing it now.

Thanks to my friend Meriam, I got to attend one of the most exciting presentation during NYFW- Marchesa.
Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig revealed their Spring 2011 creations at the Chelsea Art Museum. The place was packed with fashionistas who examined the collection that did not disappoint. The pieces were stunning and displayed an oriental inspiration- with their hand painted silk drapes and heavy embellishments.
The collection delivered a dream-like palette- smoky grey, mint, rose blush, beige, with a pop of aqua and dark lavender on tulle, organza, laser cut silk crepe.
Each dress had exquisite drapery with interesting details. This was also evident in the harem-panted jumpsuits. I love the romantic twist in addition to the "edgy glamour" from this collection.
Marchesa also had accessories such as the matching clutches and headpieces that satisfied many fashion lovers. I can't wait to see some of this on the red carpet!
Here are some photos I took from the presentation. Enjoy.
