That PHP life...

Swoosh! What's more fun than spinning around in a funky, ethnic skirt?

School's been a bear, mostly because I'm taking this PHP class. Yesterday, I was blankly starring at my laptop screen as my teacher attempted to give me some hints as to where some lines of code went. I just have to remind myself how valuable it will be knowing this scripting language... eventually. Working through seemingly impossible classes like this one and passing feels like a dream. I'm still dumbstruck that I managed a C in Calculus. I have never experienced something as troubling and rigorous as surviving that particular course.

It was a nice break to get out and do a quick shoot with the boyfriend a couple of weeks ago. 
Can we just talk about this skirt for a second? Mirrors, colored stitching, leather lace-up waist, and even bells... What does this skirt not have?

Is this still a thing?

I began blogging in 2010, right after the shocking, scary, exciting, and "real-life daydream" that was my Parsons freshman year. After coming back from school and taking a quick leave for a 6 month Colorado vacation (of sorts), I was blogging non-stop. It was my own escape to use the internet and jump into the world of fashion that was once at my fingertips in NYC. 

Upon returning to the city, I thought I had it all figured out. Partially, I did! Living dangerously, I'd give my 30 second elevator pitch about my blog to a stranger off the street, hand my iPhone over, and ask for one snap. So much faith was given to this unknown person; that someone who could very well have run off with my phone! I usually chose a person in business-casual; sound judgement was key, just saying. To those wonderful New Yorkers, THANK YOU. 

When I returned back to Indiana, it was difficult to continue. Recently there has been a bad light cast on fashion blogging. There is an overflow of newbie bloggers with thousands of followers stepping into the ring, some with the same old, same old basic fashion. Yes, I do feel behind sometimes; me having a blog of 5 years with a small, but loyal, following. Despite the frequent hiatuses, can I still catch up? -There's a question I ask myself often!

What's your guys' take? Is blogging still in vogue?

Styled with love

Cutesy, flirty, and with just enough edge, this ensemble kicks "normal" to the curb with its mix of textures galore. Plus, RED... What better color to wear during the month of love? Oui oui mon cheri.
