Paris is absolutely the most beautiful city I have ever been. We only spent three days soaking it all in, but I cherished every minute of it. On a personal level, the trip really hit home with me. I have been dreaming of visiting Paris for as long as I can remember (I have the Eiffel Tower painted in the corner of my bedroom wall) and as soon as we turned the corner at Place Du Trocadéro, tears literally started pouring down my face. I was completely overwhelmed with pure joy. 

Paris, thank you for being so completely beautiful. I will be back one day soon.

Paris came and went in a flash--I made this collage before I left and looking back now it's crazy how much I took away from it without a second's thought.

Still can't believe it's actually happening, but in less than two weeks I'm off to Europe to visit my best friend studying abroad in Barcelona. I've never been out of the country, so I have a naked passport just itching to be stamped. Let the outfit planning officially commence.

met gala

I may be biased, but I have to give mad props to Mr. Zac Posen for totally stealing the red carpet last night for the Met Gala. His orantely structured gowns captured the "Charles James: Beyond Fashion" theme to a Capital T. As an intern, I got to see a little of the behind the scenes planning that goes into preparing for an event like this. It's truly amazing to see it all come to fruition so perfectly.

saturated sorcery

"This series was shot all analog in Idyllwild, CA, a one mile above sea level mountain community which was recently ravaged by a two-week fire.  A group of 6 girls were sent in custom rainbow dresses made specifically for this shoot, to heal the blackened landscape.  During a ritual with Holi powder, they made rain come from the skies on a very sunny day. The result of this true experience (!) are these images." — Amanda Charchian
