Persephone

"Persephone is the goddess of flowers and is adorable and smart and she probably only wears pastels and at the same time she’s the queen of hell and if that’s not life goals I don’t know what is" (Source).

The New Romantics

August 27, 2016
Carina and I weren't able to take many pictures before the sun went down, but I figured I would go ahead and post the good (and silly) ones instead of trying to shoot this outfit again, mostly because it's been so long since I've blogged! Anyway, I'm in love with the embroidered t-shirt trend that's been floating around lately, and I got so excited when I found this one at an outlet store because I was devastated that this Sincerely Jules tee was sold out. Also, it just so happened to be a perfect match for my heart-shaped sunglasses.

I've been living on campus at Agnes Scott College for about a week now, and, aside from the bug bites all over my legs, it's wonderful! I've already made so many friends and connections with people who can aid me in designing my major. I'm in the process of applying for a Global Fashion course that includes a trip to Paris and Milan, which would be an absolute dream, so keep your fingers crossed.

Maraschino, Like The Cherry

August 1, 2016

I have struggled to write this post because of my bittersweet experience with Grease, so I'll leave you with this: Imagine being a badass bitch in an elite girl gang for a few months. That's what playing Marty Maraschino in my high school's 2015 production of Grease felt like. If I could walk around all the time wearing non-prescription bejeweled glasses and carrying a fake cigarette between my fingers, I would. Never underestimate the power of a good red lipstick and someone who believes in you. I would like to dedicate this post to Amy Hatcher, whose guidance and support made it possible for me to perform in this role.

In the script for the Samuel French stage production of Grease, Marty says, "I ain't got a date," to which Danny responds, "Hey, I know just the guy. Right you guys! Hey Eugene!" So, in the most clever promposal ever imagined, Jared, who played Eugene, came on stage during the dress rehearsal with a sign and balloons and said, "I'll go to prom with you, Marty!"



This is my favorite photo from the show because I look like a total BAMF in it, but also because it captures the disaster that was me face-planting on stage during the opening number and practically destroying my knee.
