Peplum Parade

Today as I headed out to run some adult errands, I wanted to look trendy but professional. I thought the red peplum tiered skirt, that’s been getting no action, would be a good starting point. This is what I came up with…

Skirt, H&M
Shirt, BikBok
Sunglasses, Emporio Armani
Shoes, exē

I love these peplum-influenced designs from the Resort 2013 shows:

Prabal Gurung, Carolina Herrera, Oscar De La Renta, Lanvin

The peplum parade continued on the Fall 2012 Couture runways:

Ulyana Sergeenko, Bouchra Jarrara, Chanel, Giambattista Valli

OOTD: Interview with a make-up artist!

So today I have my first interview for an article that I will be writing for Carolina STYLE Magazine!!! I am responsible for writing the make-up artist feature for July, and have the honor of spending my Monday with Charlene Kongolo, whose work you can see here: http://www.charlyko.com/. Being that this is my first official assignment for the magazine, I have a whirlwind of thoughts and feelings going through my head. Thankfully I put my outfit together last night, relieving some of the pressure from today!

OOTD: Job Interview

Last week I went to a job interview with Carolina Style Magazine.

Read about them more here:

http://www.facebook.com/carolinastylemagazine 

While they have been in circulation since 2008, they are growing at an impressive rate and it would be an honor, pleasure, and dream to be a part of the first major style magazine to come out of the Carolinas. 

I wanted my outfit to look smart, stylish, and unique. The thing about going to a job interview for a position in the fashion industry is that your outfit matters perhaps more than with any other type of job interview. 

I’m happy with what I came up with, and am hoping to hear some good news soon! Please keep your fingers crossed for me! x x
