In Love With Fall

I'm a born and raised Florida girl, but my heart is beginning to have a change. . . I think I might just be in love with fall!!! A couple of weeks ago, I went to New York City to visit the college I will be attending next year in the fall (I'm a senior this year!) My mom and I took a stroll through Brooklyn Heights, and were in awe of all the leaves that graced the stair steps of the apartments. It looked like a scene from The Cosby Show to me. Walking through central park was also breath taking. Living in Florida, I don't see colorful trees to often. I'm used to green all year long. Seeing red, orange, and yellow leaves was amazing, and I can't wait till I get to live in New York City next year. Below are some photos I took, and some fall 2010 rtw photos from If you have any ideas for me of what to buy to wear during the cold months next year, and still stay stylish and chic, let me know. I've never had to buy a whole wardrobe for winter wear before. I'm excited!!!

The Pixie Cut

I came across this photo of the cover of the December issue of the UK Vogue. I was delightedly surprised to see the Harry Potter star, Emma Watson, boasting a new chic look, the pixie cut. I am a huge fan of short and daring hairstyles. I myself have a short bob. At the moment it is a little past my chin, but usually it is shorter. I am in love, to say the least, with Watson's pixie cut. It is chic, daring, pretty, and feminine, which is ironic it being commonly referred as a man's cut. I love that women are becoming more bold with their looks. What is feminine and beautiful is changing. Just as pants used to be soely menswear and have evolved into women's, so are other types of clothing, styles, and now hair. Obviously the pixie cut and boasting uber short hair is nothing new, but more women are braving the sizsors and going for the short, edgy, yet pretty, pixie cut.
