Links I Love and Daisies Galore

Here's some link-lovin' for the week. I heart procrastination, uh oh!

You Are Beautiful project. Such a great idea, everyone should be reminded of this daily. :] There's a lot of really cool, inspiring artwork on the site as well. Contribute to the love!


Young blaggers have influence in the fashion world! I mean duhh, ;] but it's a pretty cool article. Clickety-click.


♥ Zo is awesome, creative, and has amazing hair. Also, her blog is super rad. :]


♥ Okay, so I had to research geometry in nature for a 2-D integrated design project, and I found this video. It's pretty amazing and way more
informative than any math classes I've ever taken! I think it was made by a cabinet company, so just ignore the advertising towards the end.


♥ LIFE Gallery: The Many Faces of Barbie. Just look at how she's changed! Barbie may be a doll, but she is totally a fashion icon!


Black Swan Vintage on Etsy.


Okay, so you might be wondering what's up with the daisy theme to this post.
Well my favorite band, Brand New, came out with a new CD last Tuesday titled Daisy.


I've listened to it a few times through already and I really like it. It's pretty dark and heavy and I really enjoy it. I might do a full write-up on it at another time, but I figured I would share my happiness and enthusiasm right now! :]
The band is streaming some of the songs from the album on their myspace, so I encourage you to check it out!

Share some cool links with us this week! Have you heard Daisy? What do you think?

Nikkidee! :]

What I Wore

Here's what I wore to drawing class the other day. :]

I got the spider pin at a flea market last weekend!

Here's a close-up. Isn't he cute? :] Not scary at all.


Speaking of scary, have you seen
It's creepy and beautiful.


What have you been wearing this week? And what has been inspiring you lately?

Style Crush: The Veronicas

The Veronicas are actually a band formed in 2004 by twin sisters Jessica and Lisa Origliasso. They are from Australia and you have probably heard their music on the radio. They have awesome voices and crazy awesome personal style. Also, they manage to never clash with each other's outfits!

Reasons The Veronicas Rock:

They got their name from the movie Heathers [which is totally awesome!]
There's a scene in the movie where Christian Slater asks, 'Are you a Heather?' and Winona Ryder's character answers, 'No, I'm a Veronica.'

They've won a bunch of cool music awards...
...which you can view a list of here.

They want to be known as a group or a band, not as a duo.
♪ "We don't want to be a pop duo group with two girls singing about relationships, we have everything that a rock band would have, so we are a band."

♥ They are super-cool philanthropists who give back.
The Veronicas are a part of the late Steve Irwin's Wildlife Warriors Worldwide, a charity that deals with the protection of animals and their natural environments.
In January 2009, it was announced Jess would pose nude for PETA.
Lisa marched at a rally in support of gay marriage in California protesting against Proposition 8.

I really like most of their music, especially this song:

This video is ridiculous... where can I find a party like that? Maybe the Veronicas can show me?

Who's inspiring you right now?

Fashion's Night Out 09 Follow Up!

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great week. I know I did!
I've been super busy with classes and homework but I love every minute of it. I love my school; Parson's is amazing. I love my friends and my roommate. We have so much fun and motivate each other, and I live in a great dorm-style apartment. Most of all, though, I love living in the city! It's everything I ever dreamed of. I feel much freer than if I was in a normal college campus setting - I had some doubts but I am now confident that this was definitely the right choice for me.

I've been up to some really exciting things. On thursday I attended Fashion's Night Out, which was CRAZYYY! I went to Bergdorf-Goodman on fifth avenue, where they had tons of events going on. I bought some reaaally cute shoes, and I saw Leighton Meester from Gossip Girl!

Here's what I wore! It's not a very good picture of my outfit but I think it's the only one I

So there you go! I'm taking a quick break from homework [read: procrastinating! uh oh!] so I figured I would listen to some Jay-Z and give everyone an update. Ladies is pimps too, ya know!

What kinds of fun things have you been up to this week?

Nikkidee! :]

Fashion's Night Out

Fashion's Night Out is coming up and I will soo be attending. I'm super excited! I'm not exactly sure what event I'll be going to yet, but look out for me!

In the United States, American Vogue has joined with NYC & Company, the City of New York, and the Council of Fashion Designers of America to enliven again the consumer spirit that churns the economy and boosts the local industry of America’s fashion capital, New York City.

Everyone's been freaking out so much about the economy that shopping has turned taboo. It's not a bad thing to be interested in fashion! The fashion industry employs tons of people, it is the ultimate form of visual self-expression and most of all, it's fun!

I'll see you there!

Nikkidee! :]
