Aurora Borealis

When this sequined black number arrived I kind of didn't know what to do with it; it just didn't necessarily feel like me, even though I had picked it out. However, all doubts were completely dispelled when I remembered this purse I had bought at a Coach party/dinner I went to last year. Since the bag has the same colors as the dress, the two matched perfectly, as if they were made for each other. Then, when I finally put the dress on to go out, I couldn't believe how beautiful I felt in in it. There's something about the black jersey and the mesh (a combination I had formerly attributed to bad 80s revivals) that made it super fun but also kinda sophisticated too. Right then I decided to wear both the dress and purse to every party henceforth, until I realized I had gone a little too overboard. Regardless, I think this thing is special beyond words. Also, Fairground's PR company let me know that if you want a chance to win a number like this one just like their facebook page over here.
In other news, things are changing really fast and I'm finding myself trying to prioritize majorly. However, I'm also really excited because this summer I'm going to Oregon to bask in the calming, magical beauty and get away from the rush of LA. After that, I'll have a couple more weeks until I start school and then I'll be going to New York for Fashion Week! Plans are all still tentative, but I'm mostly overjoyed to go back considering the last time I was there was when I was in 9th grade, and this time I'll be in 12th. If that's not an Oprah Full Circle moment I don't know what is.
