Everyone has an idol, someone that inspires them, whom they strive to be like. The people I most admire are those who have made a name for themselves in the fashion industry, but also those who show dedication, perseverance, and the courage to pursue their dreams. Someone who encompasses all of these virtues, and has definitely made a name for herself in the fashion world is Kristina Bazan. Last Saturday, I had the privilege of meeting Kristina after she attended the Elie Saab show. It was a wonderful experience, and I was so happy to meet such a beautiful person on the inside and outside. Kristina Bazan is the mastermind behind the blog Kayture, and CNN recently filmed a video about Kristina during PFW, which is up on their website. Fun fact, you can actually see my mom taking a picture of Kristina in the video! My absolute favorite part of the meetup was getting to take a selfie with Kristina which you can see on my Instagram!
On this beautiful, sunny day I decided to wear an outfit which could not represent my style any better. There were layers, leather, and burgundy. This burgundy romper is one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe! I’ve gotten a fair amount of wear out of it, in multiple seasons; making it a perfect piece year round. Over the romper, I wore my leather jacket and a light coat. I love the double lapel effect which occurred because of the layering of both jackets! I will definitely be doing this again, but mixing different colors, and or textures. All that was missing to the look more ‘me’ was a hat! I was going to wear one, but decided against it at the last minute because I couldn’t see anything. I know, I know #firstworldproblems.

I just want to take a minute to thank you not only for all of your continuous support, but also for your enthusiasm and encouragement about all the posts I write! My most important resolution for 2015 was to create better, more high-quality content for all of you to read. Every day of the year, I’ve been working on this goal and seeing the results of my effort has been one of the most rewarding things about blogging. But the number one reward from blogging has definitely been being able to connect with all of you, through our common interests! I know my blog still has many areas for improvement, but I appreciate your patience in sticking with me through all of it. And as the old saying goes, “Good things come to those who wait”. So the best is yet to come!
