Last weekend I was fortunate enough to be able to visit my old school for an academic award. That meant a day trip to Manhattan! I wore a navy blue floral dress from Topshop with white tulips to the ceremony. Above are a few images.
After the ceremony, I went down Fifth Avenue to Topshop. There I purchased a few dresses and the brand new and highly sought after Past Time Check Mini Skirt. A rather gorgeous piece which is now a personal favorite of mine. After looking around the shop, on the city streets, and through social media, it is clear that this season the flowers don’t have to wilt come fall. This autumn, floral embroidery is making strides. It doesn’t matter that flowers only bloom in the warm months. Why not bring in some color, warmth, and sunshine into the colder seasons?
My prediction is that this trend will still be in full force around Christmas time as well!
As the summer of 17 comes to an end, its time to make the autumn transition. What better way to do that than having and end of summer/pre-fall photo shoot? Here I am featuring some pieces light enough for the summer months but with a few warm autumn tones thrown in. Thank you to the amazing Katie Raynor for the session. Here are a few highlights!
Velvet Top: Topshop
Matching Velvet Scarf: Topshop
Sweater: I don’t know….

Over the summer I had a wonderful time playing a New Rochelle citizen in the musical Ragtime. Though the show is brilliant beyond belief and relates to many current events, I’m just going to focus on the fashion for now.
Not to be bias, but the New Rochelle ensemble had the best costumes by far over the Harlem, and Immigrant ensemble. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the show, it takes place at the turn of the 20th century. Therefore, we dressed in early 1900’s fashions. The women of the New Rochelle ensemble portrayed a stunning array of pastel dresses, skirts, and hats whilst the men wore light colored suits. During the number “Atlantic City” all the women of New Rochelle wore white dresses and the men wore muted pale blue suits. Personally my Atlantic City dress was my favorite costume in the entire show and I was lucky enough to get to wear it. My dress was an antique wedding gown with gorgeous beading and detailing.
Above is a photo of the entire cast in full costume along with a few of some New Rochelle and Atlantic City dresses.
Everyone in the show did an absolutely phenomenal job and it was a pleasure working with every single one of them!
