Tonight is the FMDS Urban Jungle Fashion Show!!!!!!!
Come join us at 8pm tonight in the Squires Common Wealth Ballroom.
Student: $6; General: $7; VIP $15
I am so excited for the show this year. My colleague Amanda Locke and I joined forces to design five spectacular outfits. Our excitement to see our garments go down the runway is incredible. Our unique, edgy outfits fit perfectly into the Urban Jungle theme. We incorporated unique items such as chains, nuts, and washers.
Amanda and I aren’t the only ones contributing to this fashion show of the year! There are roughly a dozen other designers, designing everything from Hokie wear to extravagant, unique dresses! This is not a show to miss!
Here’s a sneak preview of Amanda and I’s garments. Come out and join your fellow Hokies in the excitement; we would love your support!
What better way to tell time than by strapping an awesome watch to your wrist? Pick up a brightly colored one, or stick to the classics with gold, silver, or black.
As I was scouring the Vogue website this week I came across the Vintage Bowles web series. It’s an amazing journey of how Hamish Bowles, International Editor at Large for Vogue, travels around the world seeking pieces for his legendary couture collection. Season one is on the Vogue website and it features garments by Nina Ricci, Charles James, Geoffrey Beene and YSL. It’s such a personal view into Hamish Bowles’ passion for vintage collections.
My newest obsession is with the Reebok Skyscape Runaround Shoe! I want a pair so bad. They look so comfortable and actually look pretty good for sneakers, not bulky like most others. With spring approaching and the idea of being outside more gets me excited I keep bringing my thoughts back to getting a pair.
Besides, Miranda Kerr seems to like them!
One of my absolute favorite outfits to wear in the spring time is my wrap that I bought for less than $30. I got mine from a kiosk in the mall but you can find them just about anywhere. Below I am showing you my favorite way to tie mine. Its a strapless dress with a few twists in the front to embellish the neckline.
You begin by placing the wrap behind you and bringing the two tails together crossing them over one another. Next you pull it tight and twist it three times then wrap it around yourself and tie it (either behind or in front).
This makes for an adorable sundress. You can look up other ways to tie a wrap online or on youtube. Just type in wrap dress tutorials!
There are endless possibilities with this wrap dress ranging from dresses, skirts, and tops! Be creative and enjoy!
H&M has recently announced their next (and first American) collaboration will be with Alexander Wang. Wang announced this collection of clothing and accessories for both women and men over Instagram. To continue the promotion, Iggy Azalea performed with the “Wang X HM” banner above the stage at this years Coachella music festival. Alexander Wang is one of the hottest top notch designers and also the creative director for Balenciaga. “This will be a great way for a wider audience to experience elements of the Alexander Wang brand and lifestyle”, Wang stated. This collection will be unveiled to around 250 stores worldwide and online on November 6, 2014. I can’t wait for this line and i’m sure others around the world are highly anticipating it too!
