She said I think I'll go to Boston...

Yesterday I went into Boston to experience the Museum of Fine Arts for the first time. I've always loved art and have heard great things about this museum. I spent hours exploring the grounds with my mother, also a lover of fashion and art. I wore a white blouse (Forever 21, $6.99), a red pleated skrt (Forever 21, $14.80), black sandals (Forever 21, $5.99), a black and white necklace (Hand-made by my friend Lily), and carried a small black purse (Marshalls, $19.99).

Before walking to the museum from the Prudential Mall, we got Starbucks Iced Coffee
We passed this beautiful church and had to take a photograph
Finally reaching the MFA, the featured exhibit was named "Hippie Chic" and it featured all 70's clothing

There was an interesting sculpture of a baby head outside
After leaving the museum we walked to Newbury Street. It's definitely my favorite street in all of Boston. Full of beautiful stores, including American Apparel, a three floor Forever 21, Converse, Brandy Melville, and Anthropology. I purchased a new pair of converse, and a comfy sweatshirt from Forever 21.

An eerie dress for an eerie evening

1 comment


Recently I came upon this beautiful dress at Forever 21. At the time they were having a rather large clear out sale, and I was able to purchase this vintage style dress (originally priced at $29.80) for $5.50! It was apart of their "Capsule Collection" and I fell in love with the timeless style! It made me think of an old horror film costume mixed with a fashion story from Teen Vogue, April 2012. I staged these photos as if I was in a horror movie poster in my own front yard at 10:00pm. Horror is my favorite genre of movie and I feel like these photos captured the style of an old 80's John Carpenter film, such as "The Fog", or Brian De Palma's classic "Carrie". I can't wait to wear this dress again! What inspires your fashion?

A very mint evening

 The Color Mint (www.Facebook.com/TheColorMint) is a local store, owned by Melissa Rosado, which houses adorable pre-loved and new clothes ranging from $5.00 to $60.00. In a charming location in downtown Haverhill, the lovely store opened it's doors at 6:00pm to welcome people to a night of music, sales, and food. Popular country artist Skyler Clark-Hamel (www.skylertunes.com) performed throughout the night, interacting with shoppers and providing entertainment. It was a perfect way to start your back to school shopping. To attend this event I wore a black polka-dot crop top (Forever 21, $12.99), a denim circle skirt (Forever 21, $16.99), and black suede boots (Target, $39.99).

A great start to the school year! I shopped the back-to-school deals and purchased a navy and pink dress ($39.99) and a white pre-loved sweater ($8.50). Thank you Melissa and everyone involved in this event!

C'est ma chambre

"This is my room" 
I feel like the way you design your room reflects your personality and style. As I entered high school I had the change to completely re-do my older sister's room and move in. The second I found out I began my designing. I've always had a love for interior design and I began picking out paint, wallpaper, fabric, and frames. I worked very hard on my room including spray painting frames white, and searching over 10 stores for the perfect bed frame and mirror shapes. In this post I will give a tour of my room and give you advice on how to make your room useful and fashionable! 


This is a main point in my room and it displays my personality very well. It is crazy and almost messy, but everything is in order. 


I normally sit here and do my makeup in the morning or paint my nails. It's always good to have a makeup caddie (Walmart), such as the one I have, it keeps you organized and will shorten the amount of time it takes to do your makeup. Another part of this desk I love is the vintage jewelry case I use to hold all my nail polish and the antique chair that belonged to my grandmother. For inspiration I keep an old photograph of my mother in high school near my mirror (Target), my family always tell me how much I look like her. To make hair styling and much more organized I found an antique mirrored tray to gather everything on a shelf all in reach. I have a larger jewelry box in another corner of my room, but I always keep the pieces I wear most on this mannequin (Icing/Claire's). 


On the higher shelves above my desk I keep photographs and "nic-nacs". I like to keep all of the "clutter" or more personal items in one spot, and these shelves are perfect for that. It also brings a personal level to the otherwise blank wall. 


To the left of my desk is a small bookshelf and my closet door. This section is all about organization. I try to keep things that may bring clutter into stylish boxes. On the top shelf I have my jewelry box, and under I have a box of toiletries, a mug of pencils/pens, and a box full of nail filers. For the next few shelves are my favorite books and a small box of lotion and makeup wipes. To the right on the shelf is a small holder with my curler and straightener, since the mirror to the left is where I do my hair. 






















My closet is one of my favorite aspects of my room. I always suggest staying organized in a big closet, since it's a lot easier to be messy in a larger space. I keep all the clothes categorized into types (tanks, short-sleeve, button- down, sweaters, sweatshirts). I also keep shoes/ hair accessories in plastic, sliding drawers (walmart). 


To the left of my closet are these awesome built-in dressers, where I keep a majority of my clothes. Also I hung my guitar in the wall next to the closet. 


I spent a lot of time on my window seat, I watch movies, and listen to music and talk to friends. Around the top is a string holding all memorable things like movies tickets and pictures, it's a way to hoard memories without the mess. In the drawer underneath I keep all my backpacks, purses, and wallets.


My bed is so comfortable and I keep it simple and fashionable while still being comfy. I also keep my other passion on the side, which is all my musical items. Under my side table is where i keep all my Teen Vogue magazines :) 

So that's my room!
