Summer Sunglasses (with a cause!)
Finally, a few days of nice weather here in New York. The weather keeps shifting back and forth between hot and cold.
Recently, an awesome brand named Waveborn reached out to me and told me about their sunglasses. I quickly wanted to get to know them better and their product. Basically, every time you buy a pair of shades, someone in need of eyeglasses somewhere in the world will get them. They call it “Buy One, Give One.” Kind of awesome, right?
#MansomeMonday: Caolion Blackhead O2 Bubble Pore Pack
This amazing product is the Caolion Blackhead O2 Bubble Pore Pack. The cream reacts with the oxygen in the air to cleanse pores deep down. This product is only found in the Asian markets, but thanks to Peach and Lily, this product, and many others, are available to US customers.
I reached out to the fabulous ladies behind the Peach and Lily and got these awesome tips:
The best thing for the O2 pack is to make sure the face is super clean first. It could also help to apply right after a hot shower once the pores are opened up a bit more with the steam. The most important thing though is to be consistent about using the product and to understand that cleaning pores isn’t a once in a blue moon activity, but should be a regular part of the skincare regimen.Additionally, the pore minimizing pack is great to use after this as the idea is to 1. clean pores, 2. make them tighter (which helps to keep them cleaner as less opportunity for them to get clogged) and repeat. - Alicia Yoon, Co-Founder
Plaid. Just that word can some times make you apprehensive to a shirt, but with the right styling you will look great! I took this short sleeve button and just threw a simple cardigan on top. Easy! You can’t tell that it is short sleeve at all.

Finals week is quickly approaching as my first year of college comes to an end. In addition, I have started a new job for part of the summer. I am now the PR Assistant at Vince. This job is full-time and demands a lot of my attention, but I promise to make sure my blogging keeps up.
I also have so much in the works. I am going to Miami for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim and I am attending a private preview of the new Met exhibit before the Gala.
Make sure you following me on my various social medias so you can keep up to date!

The Gatsby Collection by Brooks Brothers
Catherine Martin, costume designer for the much-atticipated film, The Great Gatsby, has collaborated with Brooks Brothers on a massive capsule collection.
Brooks Brothers created over 1,700 items for the film. The collection will showcase some of the finest pieces: canes, hats, a plethora of bow ties, and more!
You should make a move on these pieces soon as I am sure they will sell out very fast.
Dont’ forget: The Great Gatsby hits theaters nationwide on May 10!

Spring is showing itself - finally - here in New York. Why not take a stroll down in the West Village and have lunch?

Keep it simple
Having just gotten back from L.A. I wanted to dress sharp, but casual. A super soft pullover, jeans (that look like khakis), and comfortable oxfords was the best route to go.

American Eagle Back-to-School/Fall 2013 Press Preview
Going back to school just got easier. I have been a fan of American Eagle since I worked at one of their stores from sophomore year to halfway through senior year of high school. American Eagle is all about styling. I learned a lot of neat tricks and tips while working there. If there is one thing I will always love about the brand it is their denim.
American Eagle unveiled some really different pieces for this upcoming season. More colored and “fun” button downs and the new AEO active line was unveiled. This line consists of all performance-wear pieces for working out.
I’m excited to try out some of the workout pieces. I do try everyday to dress nicely, but I like lounging around every now and again.
I am currently in California for the DECA International CDC. I have been a member of DECA since my freshman year of high school and I am so happy to continue in to Collegiate DECA.
While here, I popped in to LA for WeTheUrban’s Coachella Party and had a night on the town with a bunch of my friends. It was great! Today is my last day here, but it was a wonderful trip. I’ve never been on the west coast so this was a treat.
I paired a tank with preppy, flat front shorts to keep everything casual while out here. Also, a little arm candy never hurt any one.
