Recently, I have been really vibing with the nude trend. As a black and white enthusiast, it kind of makes sense for me to love this color trend. All three colors are simple, natural, and classy. It has appeared everywhere these days. For example, Kanye West’s NYFW show featured an army of models head-to-toe in the color. To be honest, I hated how they all looked like they were wearing pantyhose, but I appreciated the shade of brown and the pieces would actually be nice if they were worn separately.
Lastly, a new Ulta opened up right around the corner from my home and I unknowingly walked into the grand opening and got $10 off my purchase. They were having some great sales. NYX products were buy 2, get 1 free! However, I did stumble upon these new brand that I never tried, Essence Cosmetics, and they had a new nude collection out. I decided to pick up 3 lipsticks and a nail polish.
So, what do you think of this growing nude trend? Would you rock it?
Hi guys! For those of you who didn’t know, my boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship during the school year. We’re about a 7 hour bus ride apart and this past weekend I went to visit him. I had a lot of fun, but clumsy ol’ me managed to stain every shirt I brought with me. So my boyfriend let me steal one of his plain, white v-neck tees. Boyfriend silhouettes are so in right now, so I thought I would try my hand at styling this big t-shirt three different ways!
1. Business casual. I wore this outfit to a afternoon business meeting at school. What better to compliment your boyfriends’ tee, than a boyfriend blazer? Since both are long and relatively baggy, I thought they would work perfectly together. I made sure the look wasn’t totally loose by wearing my favorite pair of Rag & Bone skinnies. Lastly, I added a chunky, statement necklace to give some character to an otherwise blank canvas.
2. Sporty chic. This outfit is great for everyday use. It’s getting chilly out, so the main focus is my Stussy jacket. I tend to always bring an outerwear piece with my to school because the classrooms are freezing. Keeping to a black and white theme, I tied the end of the bf tee and paired it with a black pencil skirt. I call this sporty chic because I wore my Nike roshes with the outfit to give it that urban vibe.
3. Girls’ Night Out. Boyfriend t-shirt for a gno? Why not?! Wearing a baggy shirt to go to a party or to go clubbing might but absurd to some, but I believe it is all about balance. It is important to not make the outfit look too sloppy, so you need to combat that. Black is the quintessential color for instantly looking put together, which is why these printed legging are the perfect bottom. Don’t forget to top it off with you favorite pair of heels!
So publicly apologizing to my boyfriend but I am commandeering this shirt and never giving it back! It’s just a great basic to have and really versatile. However, despite all these looks, my favorite place to wear this shirt is to sleep, hehe. What’s your favorite way to wear a white t-shirt??

In light of fashion week, I am sure all of you fashionistas have been keeping up with the latest runway trends just like I have been! However, something has recently drawn my attention to a lesser known trend that is bound to make waves rapidly in the industry — 3D printed fashion! It has been making appearances all NYFW. Personally, I love learning about emerging technology, so if you are interested, keep reading!
This whole idea is based off of Additive Manufacturing (AM), technologies or 3D printers that build 3D objects by creating layers of material to create a product. These creations can be made in a variety of materials such as plastic, metal, and ceramic. Believe it or not, this method was first introduced in the 1980s and has been evolving ever since.

What does this have to do with fashion you ask? Recently, companies like Shapeways are working with designers to actually 3D print accessories, jewelry, and even a fully-functioning dress! Designers Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg designed a wearable dress that was printed in one single folded piece that’s made from panels connected via hinges. It was so groundbreaking that it has been acquired by the Museum of Modern Art for the permanent collection.
