Streetstyle

So as most of you guys know, last Thursday night, June 4th was our fashion show; Streetsyle. You could imagine: this was a dream come true for us, and yes, it very much was. Lord and Taylor sponsored all the clothing and accessories which means we used whatever we wanted and however we wanted to use it. This all happened incredibly quickly, and we barely had any time to plan anything. Not to mention, on top of choosing the clothing, we had to get a fire permit–who the hell knows what a frickin fire permit is. We also had to figure out a way to make a runway without actually buying a runway. We had to decide what food was going to be served…and while we’re discussing that, I might as well mention that packaging three hundred muffins–part of the gift bags–is really fun. Now, back to the clothing. It probably sounds very easy, considering we had access to anything we wanted from Lord and Taylor, but that is where you guys are wrong. All the different clothing options literally kept me up for days. For the first few model fittings I  felt like I was trying a little too hard to stay on the normal side, dressing them in pants and a shirt, or a single dress. After about 5 models were fitted by the four of us (Lily, Timmy, Davida and Kelly), I started understanding what I had to do to make a “good” outfit. And by good I mean not looking like you woke up ready to go to my high school. I guess I should change my expectation of a good outfit because as of now it’s only not wearing a Wildfox sweatshirt and pencil skirt (considering thats what everyone wears at my high school). With Lord and Taylor clothing, or shall I say clothing from only the Free People section, we started layering dresses on top of dresses, skirts with dresses over them, and shirts on top of that. All in all I probably learned more about my personal style from dressing the models along with Lily, Davida and Kelly than in all my 18 years of getting dressed in the morning. Consciously choosing specific items from the endless possibilities got me thinking about how I could do that with my own clothing and closet, well not the endless possibility part, but the part about pairing everything together.

Anyway: here are the pics!!!!!

Thanks to all the amazing models!!! your guys are incredible!
