Event Recap: PAFA and Fabric Workshop and Museum

During winter break most people were probably catching up on all the well-deserved sleep they were missing out during the school year. I was exploring the art & culture scene in Philadelphia. Visiting all the museums I wanted to visit and check out some pretty cool exhibits. Some of my favorites were the ones at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the Fabric Workshop and Museum.

DIY: Tulle Skirt

I get inspired by pop culture a lot of times.
 I rarely get inspired by fashion itself when I'm creating something, even though I love studying it. From TV shows to old movies, there is endless possibilities for resources to inspire you in fashion.

Pretty in Punk: Winter Wishlist

Pretty in Punk: Winter Wishlist

Pretty in Punk: Winter Wishlist by Stellar Inc.

Every season I try a new style to discover my niche in fashion. So far my favorite has been the 'Urban Bohemian' style I've been rocking for a while. 
Now, I'm willing to try something new for 2014.  I wanted to go a little more punk but stay true to my Bohemian ways. I know this may not look like traditional punk clothing but this is my spin to the punk style I grew to like so much. Since day one, I have always wanted a pair of creepers and Doc Marten boots. And of course, I need a new backpack so why not a leather Mudd backpack. It's always good to try something new!

Cheers to new fashion in 2014
